Chevy is known to "run deep." That's especially true of this Silverado truck. This impressive piece of 355-horsepower, V8 machinery is not only versatile, but it’s comfortable, powerful and gets decent mileage for a vehicle of its size.

Alan: Trucks have been this big (in width) since about 1960. The cabs have gotten bigger to allow more than 2 or 3 people to ride comfortably.

David: As a daily driver it makes perfect sense unless you live in a congested urban environment with Trader Joes Prius size parking space.

Tim: For a truck, it rides great. In fact, it rides better than any Porsche 911 I have ever driven.

The fact is that there is a reason that the trucks produced by GM and Ford are the top 2 selling vehicles in the US, and have been for years. They are comfortable, safe, practical and the most reliable vehicle made in the world, period.

In the meantime, I will enjoy driving my GMC Duramax crew cab for the next several hundred thousand miles and will do so in comfort and safety. It is how most of us motorsports enthusiasts get our cars to the track and other fun car events.

I don't necessarily disagree with being overkill for a daily driver, but at the cost these things are now days, it almost has to be.  If you need a truck, this fits the bill, but at $50k, it's hard to buy it AND a daily driver.

Perhaps that's why the add on's and features have increased over the years because people want those things for a daily and can't justify two vehicles.
