2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 4dr Crew Cab LS 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 5M)
I have very much enjoyed my truck. It has been great in the snow and driving in the mountains of the western U.S. It had no trouble pulling a 27 foot trailer through the mountains of Wyoming. Good brakes and good handling. My wife fights with me over who gets to drive it.
The Duramax has a lot of power. I love the Allison transmission. Leather seating for six is a big bonus. I like the adjustability of the drivers seat and steering wheel. My 4'10" 15 year old can adjust the seat enough to drive and then I can quickly change it for my 5'8" body.
I can get 15.5 mpg in town, 20 mpg in rush hour traffic, 16.7 mpg at 75mph. An extra gear for freeway driving would be nice.
