Great Truck!

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab Work Truck 4WD LB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


I purchased an '05 4x4, extended cab, WT, in April. I think it's a great truck. I was impressed by the standard features (e.g. dual climate control, 4 wheel ABS, etc..) It rides great on the highway...I drove it from NY to the Rocky Mountains and was never uncomforable at all...that's a lot of driving. The engine is impressive (about 300hp). It's got plenty of power and has been getting decent gas mileage (for a truck).

Best Features

Strong V8, exterior styling, Chevy dependability.

Worst Features

I think it was cheap of Chevy not to make the center front seat fold down to a center arm rest in the WT model. You have to get the "LS" to get that. The transmission isn't the smoothest. My father's Tundra has a silky smooth transmission, but lacks the feeling of power and speed of my Chevy.
