Smooth, strong and efficient

2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab LS Rwd SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)
5.3 litre runs with anything on the highway, and on open road have gotten 20 mpg I'm not a tire smoker, but at 35mph...hang on! There is no other p/u that cruises as effortlessly or efficiently at highway speeds as this with the 3.42 gears.
Power, leg & headroom. Loading height for heavy items is real good. Headlights are the best on any p/u. They light up highway reflectors miles away. Minimal idiot bells and chimes.
In seat storage, 5- speed auto for MAJOR mpg, map lights placed where the dome light is so you can read at night and not create a shadow on your map, power rear sliding window. Tougher paint.
