2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Crew Cab Z71 4WD SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

If you want a real truck that can work, haul the kids, tow the boat and look good while your doing it--- This is the right pick. Just make sure you have a gas card because you will find yourself always wanting to go for a ride.


Best Features

The ride quality is great and the seats fit a guy that has a couple extra pounds unlike other new trucks. (haha)

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab Z71 4WD SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I've owned the Z71 for about a year and am absolutely satisfied. The ride is extremely smooth and road noise is almost non-existent. The seats are very comfortable (unlike the Ford F- 150 which felt like I was sitting on a slab of concrete). The 5.3 V8 has plenty of get-up-and-go and the mileage is 16.5 city and 19 on the highway. The heated seats are great in Minnesota winters.


Best Features

Interior room (head and legs) is more than ample. Very smooth ride. The exterior styling gets a lot of compliments. The Bose sound system is very impressive.


Worst Features

More low-end torque would be nice, as takes a moment to get going once you hit the gas. Redesigning the folding rear seats so the rear seat headrests don't wedge into the backs of the front seats would be an improvement.

Review

Great truck and drivebility. Seat is somewhat comfortable but supportive for 10hour trips. I do recommend the LS package for it more convinient for over all comfort. Great engines 5.3 and 6.0. both deliver about the same fuel efficiency - I get 350 miles on 22 gallons. I would prefer a more efficent truck and it amazes me that all these car maker are dragging their feet on delivering these type of vehicles.


Best Features

Engine strength


Worst Features

More diesel engines, more efficient engines. spit bench seat in the back. better brakes perhaps 2 caliper front disk bakes.

Review

Best truck that I have ever owned. The z71 suspension gives a great ride. The climate control system much better than the previous truck I owned. There were no water leaks and no issues with the quality of the truck.
