I actually bought the 2004 Silverado
Z71 short bed with a 5.3 liter 8
cylinder engine, which was not listed.
This is my first 4x4 I've owned but
driven and ridden in many others. The
Silverado Z71 is by far the best
handling and funest to drive truck I've
been in. It might not have the best
interior features, but who buys a TRUCK
for luxury. This truck serves its
purpose and is probably the most
dependable in its class. I've drove the
truck through some stuff that I've seen
other new trucks get stuck in; but of
course, that was a combination of good
driving with the aid of a fine machine,
the Silverado Z71.
My favorite feature would be the Auto
four wheel drive that I've been able to
use on several occasions
