Silverado SS
By dcairns on


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


Rather pricey, but it has every gadget
in the Chevy parts bin. The only thing
missing is excess power I wanted.
Sadly that is still Ford's domain.
There is plenty of power, great
cornering and AWD for sure traction.
The ride is firm but smooth and
generally comfortable. There is a
harmonic bouncing on some concrete
freeways. Cab noise is very low. The
rear view mirror is a bit low for me,
blocking forward view at the horizon
line. The sun visor in the side
position, blocks too much of my view
left. The truck has a solid feel to it
and I have found no flaws in the
exterior metal work or paint. The
styling is well suited for the SS and
looks great.

Best Features

Smooth power. The stereo is clear and has good bass XM Radio Separate Climate controls (the wife always likes it warmer than me). Distinctive styling. I think the "aggressive" styling works well on the SS.

Worst Features

More power!! Factory supercharger is needed to give credence to the SS nameplate. Some more tuning on the suspension to eliminate concrete freeway bounce. Chromed or polished aluminum wheels, instead of the painted aluminum. Why did they paint the beautiful aluminum wheels silver?
