    2018 Silverado Midnight Z71

    Bought a 2018 Silverado 1500 LTZ Z71 Midnight Edition

    The 19ís styling hasnít grown on me yet and the deals on the 18s are hard to beat. I brought this bad boy home yesterday. Iíve been acostomed to options like 6.2L, navigation and bucket seats, but after I test drove this one with the 5.3L 8-speed, 3.42 gears and flip down bench seat and no nav, I was sold. Very peppy truck. After I tried Apple car play, I really didnt see the need for navigation. I love the styling of this truck, the rugged appearance and features such as factory spray-in bed liner, meaty tires, skid plates, ranch shocks, brake controller and fun options like sun roof and power sliding rear window. I do plan to install a Rough Country 2.5Ē lift (not level kit), 295 Duratracs, and Borla ATAK exhaust. This truck will get a lot of use on the farm. Iíd post pics but this site isnít allowing me to upload photos like I used to.

    Crew cab. The MSRP was a bit over 55K and the discounts were at $45k.

    Congratulations!

    We just upgraded my wife's '14 Silverado High Country to an '18 CC LT with the NHT Max trailering package. She had to give up some of the interior features, but we got the tow mirrors and tow suspension which we are really enjoying with towing the travel trailer. The 3.73 gears and the changes to throttle filtering they've made since 2014 make this truck a lot more fun to drive, as well. I was hoping to trade in her 5.3L for the 6.2L, but that was pushing price a bit higher than we wanted, and the 6.2Ls with the NHT package are tough to find!

    I for one dumped GM trucks after a lifetime buying. Just got tired of the same old interior and the new 19 is not much better as I thought I'd wait on the HD. Well now I'm a happy Ram owner. Later RJD

    you could at least congratulate him on the new purchase before expressing your dismay in his decision

    Congrats on your formerly new truck, smith.

    I don't know what nav GM uses, but I have a Garmin unit in my car, and Google Maps on my i7 and Google Maps is lots smarter. So if GM (Google Maps) is part of Apple car play, you're in like Flynn.
