I had a 2001 Silverado with a 4.8 and it was ok. I wouldn't call it a powerhouse, but it pulled my 17' boat without a problem on the flat lands.If you are going to pull a trailer with a car on it in the mountains or hilly terrain I would get a truck with a bigger motor. I would also have to agree with the maintenance thing everybody else mentioned. I traded my 2001 Chevy off for a Ranger this summer, I couldn't afford the gas for a V8 commuting to work and school.
