mismatched 8.1L gas engine by Tracy on 12/24/2010. Trim: 2007 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD LT2 Crew Cab Long Box 2WD, Owned 3 years.
Pros: styling,head turning,nice ride.
Cons: I bought it new in 07 close out. Boy this is the worst miss-matched engine with a 3/4 ton. It's a 8.1L with an Allison 6 speed auto with a 4:10 rear end..Big mistake!!! Gas guzzler!!! I get 8 to10 gal. per mile in city(small town) and 12 to 14 MPG highway and that's running no load. I have 62,000 miles and have used over 5,000 gal of gas. When I pull a 6x12 enclosed trailer with 1 riding mower and small yard equipment I get 9 MPG at 60 miles per hour. I had to give up my lawn mowing business, it cost to much in gas. The drivers seat in like sitting on a rock!!!
Overall review: Don't buy any truck with the 8.1L it belongs in a race car!! I can't get a fair trade-in on it because of the gas engine and I leave my keys in it hoping someone will steal it, but no luck..
