Man could I tell you stories about my 2 newer ones and they are both fleet cars. :E:
 
I’d buy the 2024 Silverado EV IF it came with a gas engine and was called an Avalanche 🤣 since it’s basically an Electric Avalanche already.

Absolutely, Best all around vehicle I have ever owned. It was totaled 2 years ago with 450k on the clock and I just couldn't let her go. I bought it back from the insurance company and still driving it today like nothing ever happened.
 
Yes, I just did!
I had a 2007 a few years ago. I do a lot of rough road driving for work, the truck was bone stock and I had a few issues with the LTZ electronic suspension. I got rid of it and drove regular 1500 Fords and Rams for a few years. They were boring. I really missed my Avy so I just bought a 2012 LT, it has everything the LTZ had and more but without the problematic electronic suspension.
 
I gotta say that I like the ride much better than a traditional truck, but the fuel mileage and lack of a full bed are killers for me.

If I needed a full bed ALL of the time, then a regular pickup truck would make more sense to me.

However, folding down the mid-gate when a full bed is needed works great for me.

The shorter of the two boxes in the bed of my EXT is 8 foot long and extends up into the open cab.

It it hadn't been for the extra length of the taller box by a couple of inches, I would have been able to also close the tailgate.

But they both hauled just fine.

Below are some 4x8 sheets I hauled home from Home Depot with the tailgate closed and I could have stacked a whole lot more sheets in there had I needed to do so..

The rest of the time, the shorter bed works out just fine.

And both of my trucks ride much better than my previous extended cab pickup, by a long shot.

And that's not to mention that my trucks can haul the biggest of my towables with ease.

Love it or Hate it, you gotta vote!!! (y)

PS. Moderaters, please leave this poll in this section or not many folks will not see it! Thanks!
Yes I would buy another AVY. I like my Avy, it’s the right size truck for me. Not to big and not to small. I can haul and look good as well. It’s a city persons truck, not a fleet vehicle. But not at the price tag they are asking (Silverado Ev) version. 95k is to much. I understand it has some cool features and all. But you probably will not use half of them. How often will you need to power your house or cottage. You all get what I am saying.
 
Heck yeah! My 08 just turned over 300K and this time next year we should be in a better financial situation to get a 2013 LTZ with (hopefully) less than 100K on the clock.
 
I'm on my second one. First one was a 2004 Z66 that I put over 300k miles on. I bought it in 2005 and it'll still be going strong today but unfortunately it was totaled. My second one I'm in now is a 2011 LTZ 4X4 purchased 2 years ago. Does everything I need it to do but my only dislike about them is the gas mileage but I'm use to it. I would like to get a 2013 Black Diamond Edition.
