2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT2 4dr Extended Cab 6.5 ft. SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
Several annoying features that detract from an otherwise solid design. (1) Steering wheel too far forward. You really have to slide forward to get a comfortable position thereby placing your knees very close to the lower dash. (2) No locking fuel filler door. (3) No grab handle for the driver. GM uses the weak excuse that a wiring harness goes up the driver side pillar. (4) Poor design lower dash trim panel (closest to your knees) that protudes rearward instead of forward further reducing leg room. (5) Poor radio control placement. The most used knob, the one to change stations is on the far right. This makes a long reach. Should have been on the left of the radio.
Locking tailgate. Decent fuel economy (5.3L) considering the size of the veichle. Comfortable front seats. Good throtle response.
Driver side grab handle. Locking fuel door. Telescoping Steering wheel. Lower dash trim panel (closest to your knees) that goes forward not rearward reducing leg room. Upgrade kits to correct above items.
