The Die-Hard Ford in me has Died
By etedder on
2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab Work Truck 4WD LB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
Although still very new, I'm sure that
I'm going to love this truck. First, I
wanted a real truck, w/few frills as
possible. I wanted a truck, with towing
power and decent fuel mileage. So far,
I've got exaclty what I asked for.
Drive-to-work fuel mileage is 18+ mpg.
It handles my 18' bass boat very well,
w/no problems accelerating on
All of my previous trucks were Fords (6
total). When I discovered that a
similarly equipped Ford was $3-$4000
more, I decided to look elsewhere. The
Dodge Ram (Hemi) was 2nd choice, but
fuel mileage is an issue.If you have a
budget, with similar needs, this is
Power, fuel mileage. Extended cab (This
is my first extended cab)
Better quality tires. Tires required re-
balance, Day 1.
