What can Oppo tell me about the 2014+ Chevrolet Silverados with the L83 (Gen V 5.3)? I’ve been seriously considering buying a truck because 1) I want one and miss driving one, and 2) I think it would be a wiser buy than a GTI, for around the same price (Low 30's), with me moving into a new place, getting married, and eventually having kids to cart around. 4 door 4wd is what I’m looking for, and I absolutely HATE the trend of chrome everything on modern trucks. So, 2017 Silverado 1500 Custom seems like a good choice for me. All the utility, none of the fancy/unnecessary (also love the 4wd selector on the floor instead of the push button/knob).

Anything I should be on the lookout for? Anyone have one and know what I should be on the lookout for?
