With its numerous powertrain and cab configurations and stout towing and hauling capacities, the Silverado 3500 is a hard truck to beat for those who need maximum functionality and capability from their work truck.

Far and above out tows, pulls, performs, and has better fuel mileage than all my friends non GM cars.Three of my friends continuiously ask to borrow my Chevy to pull thier large loads, especially on long trips for the comfort and many options not on their trucks.

Has electrical problems. Intermittantly won't start. Also has transmission problems when slowed down under heavy load, I lose gears. Appears the torque converter runs away. GM can't fix electrical problem. I filed and was awarded a lemon law buy back. GM is miserable to deal with and has been dragging their feet every step of the way. Would not recommend any Chevrolet truck to anyone. Personally will never purchase another one. I am already out $6000.00+ and still waiting for GM to buy the vehicle back from me per the arbitrator's decision.

This truck is fantastic! I traded in
a 2004 2500 Crew Cab with a 6.0L for
this truck that has an 8.1L beast for
an engine...and it's fantastic. Tons
of power, very smooth ride even with
the DRW, and for such a big engine it
gets fantastic mileage of 13 - 14 mpg.
If you're towing, this is the truck
for you. You can spend thousands up
front for a diesel or save a little
and go with the gas. Diesels are fine
but I went with the gas as they warm
up quicker in the winter. Very good
truck and would recommend to anyone.

If you want a truck that is powerful,
quiet deisel engine, then the chevrolet
1 ton dually is the truck for you. It
has slick, inovative styling making it
aerodynamic and one big truck all at
once. You can go through the drive thru
of a resteraunt without having to turn
off your truck. The truck to have is
the 2004 Chevrolet 1 ton dually.Period.
