Review of the 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 3500

  • Although the Silverado still has the capacity to tackle just about any job, its newer competition manages a slight edge when it comes to refinement and maximum towing power.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Multiple drivetrain configurations, substantial towing and hauling capacities, compliant ride quality.

  • Cons

    Interior design is showing its age, low-quality interior materials, below-average build quality.

  • What's New for 2005

    This year all heavy-duty Silverados receive a redesigned hood and grille. On extended and crew cab models, a power sunroof is a new option, and includes a HomeLink universal transmitter and deluxe overhead console.

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.




Another gm lemon

Vehicle: 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 3500

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.




3500 drw - wow!!

Vehicle: 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 3500

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.




The truck

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.
