The 2.7 turbo cannot be purchased with two speed transfer case/4 low, last I looked. Many GM trucks with 4x4 just have 2 high, 4 high, and "auto". No 4 low. You need to get the z71 package or the x31 which allows you to get 4 low.
Just pull your leg bag, it's not that difficult. There is so much more room in the footwell of my truck vs the GM I tested. And if you have shorter family driving the truck they'll appreciate the movable pedals, just like we all appreciate tilt/telescopic steering wheels and movable seats.
Edit: just priced one out on chevy canada website, apparently now the package isn't required. However it's still an addon, 4 low checkbox is a feature you have to pay extra for and isn't part of the 4x4 - that's just stupid, and you still can't get 2.7 turbo with 4 low no matter what boxes you check.
I wouldn't ever get a 2.7 Turbo in a full size pickup truck so I wouldn't know if those are lacking features in so small of an engine.
I don't let my family drive my truck, they can buy their own.
They did finally correct the off center steering wheel lol. But yeah there is still something off in the cabins, might be the seating position. I love how in the Rams you sit "on top" of the truck, with GM's you sit lower in the cab.
I'm not sure if there is something differnet about the trucks in Canada... I don't have that problem in my 18 Silverado. I was able to get my head 2 inches from the headliner with the electronic controls. I had cloth seats for reference, not sure if leather was\is different shapes.
The only vehicle I had that I would want to be sitting lower was my Camaro and Mustang and that's because of how the seat was angled being so low to the ground already.
I know Ram does funky things with packages in Canada, I wonder if GM does the same shenanigans? It almost sounds like we drove differnet GM trucks in differnet universes. Having just hit 12k miles on my Ram there is no doubt my Silverado was more comfortable on short and long rides. I did notice the seat material in the Ram got MUCH better after 5-6k miles driven in it. Originally I was getting massive leg craps after driving for longer then 25 minutes 100% of the time, very painful and not fun, especially with cruise control on so it's not even like I wasn't trying to keep moving my legs to keep them good.
My father has a newish GMC Sierra 3500. I've been given the chore of driving it when we go on long hunting trips a few times. I HATE hate hate riding in or driving that truck. The dash has components hanging down low. The floorboards are angled sharply upward at the feet. Those two things combined make it VERY uncomfortable for me. And I'm not a huge guy. 6'3" 225 with size 13 boots. There's nowhere to put my feet. It's just a weird and un-natural ergonomic design in their cabs. I just hate it.
I haven't been in a new 1500 from GM but if it's anything like the 2500/3500 there is no way in hell I'd own one simply because of the terrible seating positions/feet space in their cabs. I swear some of these companies are designing trucks around women.
The 1500s are differnet but the design for your feet is differnet then the Ram.
You had your seat too far forward if you were hitting the end which went upwards, there is a dead pedal for your left foot around the same depth of the peddles (but only on the far left), right foot shouldn't be near the back.
I had my steeling wheel fully extended towards me so I had proper room for my feet to hit the peddles but not be way too close like a short grandma trying to look over the steering wheel.
And for what it's worth 6'3 with size 13 is a pretty tall dude when compared to average at least.
Average in America is around 5'8 200lbs
How tall is a human? Height and weight for men and women in an international comparison
Not to the point you would have any problems I would say, but some people might say 7 inches is a big difference
