    Thanks for some good info on the 2010 Silverado. I’ve always thought this a sharp looking pickup, and it seems like they have beefed that up with some solid new features. I’m sure with Chevy’s big push to get back into the market, they will get the few bugs worked out by the 2011 model. Thanks for the info.
