    Silverado - "LTZ" vs "LT with Texas Edition" vs "LT with All Star Edition"

    This forum is so darned helpful that I thought I would get some advice in understanding content differences between the subject trim levels for new Silverado (1500 Crew Cab, 2WD).

    I want a new pickup with all of the bells and whistles, and until recently that led me to think that the LTZ was the way to go.

    That is, until I started to pay attention to LT models available with the two packages commonly offered here in Houston area - "Texas Edition", and "All Star Edition", which are similar.

    I can purchase an LT with either of these packages, plus the convenience package, 20" wheels (included with Texas package), Bose stereo, and leather (either 40/20/40 or buckets), and the result is a vehicle with practically all of the content of the LTZ, for about $3-4K less than the price of an LTZ.

    In doing this I give up only the LTZ upgraded instrument panel, center console, heated front seats, and a few minor details such as body colored bumpers, external mirrors with turn signal built in and power fold, and I can't get a sunroof or rear entertainment with the LT. I can live with that! I like the fancier dash and instrument panel of the LTZ, but I don't think I want to pay an additional $3-4K to get it!

    I gain more $ in my pocket, plus the ability to have the 40/20/40 front seating (vs buckets only for the LTZ), larger storage between the seats and with a flat top (with the 40/20/40), and probably a roomier feeling driver/passenger cabin. (And if I want the bucket seats, I can have those too).

    Bottom line, from a content standpoint, it seems to me that you can get an LT model with everything meaningful from the LTZ, for several thousand less. That is a real savings!

    Am I missing something? It seems to me that you pay a very substantial premium for the LTZ model.

    I have the 40/20/40 seats and love them ! do they offer that in leather ? I didn't know that ..

    I have the cloth.

    I don't know how much they are asking but in 2010 I bought my LT with power everything, backup camera, remote start, tow/ package etc for $31,000 after all discounts ... does that help ?

    Also, I got the 8ft long box, I believe that adds $700 to the price .
    I think my LT truck has everything except leather, and the ugly lower instrument panel ..

    and I will NEVER buy a pickup with buckets ever !
