2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Classic LT2 4dr Extended Cab 4WD 6.5 ft. SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
Love this truck. Doesn't have all the bells/whistles of the new design, but for the price difference, it was a no brainer. 5.3l engine is flawless, as is the tranny. Pulls my 2500# boat without a grunt. No flaws or any defects in 11,000 miles (just like my 2001 Silverado). MPG is 12.5 for towing, 13/14 for city and 18.5/19.5 for highway without towing at 65mph. All this with 4WD and extended cab with the 4.10 axle. Truck is comfortable on long trips. Would definitely recommend it to anyone else including my kids.
Sound system, automatic 4WD, no nonsense way it goes about its business, and solid secure feel.
Truck has a very wide turning radius, however, testing non-4WD veh. shows this to be a characteristic of the 4WD. It would be nice to shorten it, if possible. Also, put in an OnStar unit and XM radio as options.
