2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab SS AWD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Okay guys, here's the real scoop on SS
performance. I'm just back from Palm
Springs where I hauled my 23 foot
travel trailer 120 miles with my new
SS. 12.9 mpg while pulling 2 tons+ of
trailer (and I wasn't even trying to
be conservative!). I set the cruise
control at 60 mph, pushed on the
trailering button and let it go on its
own. To get that kind of performance
out of a vehicle thats rated at 13 mpg
city and 17 mpg highway is awesome!
My personal modifications: electric
brake control (for trailering),
SnugTop solid tonneau cover and carpet
kit to the bed. Now, all I've left to
do is tint the windows!

Best Features

Where do I start? The heated leather seats with lumbar support? The auto dimming mirrors? The Bose 6 disc Stereo system? The dual zone climate control? For someone like me who's not used to all the "bells and whistles" (I used to drive a Ford truck), this is luxury!

Worst Features

To add the tonneau cover, I had to remove the tailgate spoiler, have four holes filled that were found underneath, and have the tailgate repainted, but the truck looks great. (The suggested hole plugs just wouldn't do. Not for a 40K truck!) How about a tailgate that is hole free?
