    ......my GOD is it ever amazing. Night and day from the 2.7L access. I cannot compair them to be honest. The sound, feel, power, space, ride, EVERYTHING was better. Man oh man do I ever like this truck.
    To anyone who is on the fence, go with the V6 handsdown, and the double cab if you can.

    Gas mileage is a great thing for the 2.7, but my god, when I tried one after the other it was like night and day. The V6 felt like a half ton Chev and sounded like one while the access cab 2.7 was like a little car. Obviously liked both and theres sick value in the access 2.7, but man oh man I literally cant stop thinking about how much more I liked the V6. SICK!!!!

    lol, i dunno, Im canadian and not a "old hick who loves his chevy" but I do love the Silverados. With the 5.3 is a great truck. But looks wise I like the Tacoma better, and resale/mpg/price just makes the Tacoma a no brainer to try out this time.

    Sometimes I like to take my moms 4 cylinder Ford Escape out for a ride just so I can switch back to my truck and re-experience the day when I first test drove it.

    having owned both engine in access cab versions, the V6 advantage are well worth the 10-15% increase in fuel consumption over the 4 cyl. That is just my opinion though.

    Now go drive a 4.7L and see how much of a major difference it is!!!!My best friend got a new Silverado in 09 and my mom has an 05 4runner with the 4.7L and the difference between the two is night and day. My friend even said one day, "I wish my truck ran like your mom's."
