2004 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 4dr Crew Cab LT 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


I owned a Silverado with the 6.2
Detroit Diesel, and it now has over
300,000 miles. I bought the new Chevy
with the Duramax for serveral reasons,
but the Duramax and Allison
transmission make this truck a truly
great vehicle. There is literally no
comparison in the market, and the
improved torque and horsepower on the
Duramax is an incredible feat. The
fuel economy is up substantially, and
the emissions are down. I look at this
truck as a vehicle that will last past
the point of wanting to keep driving it.

This is a great truck!

Best Features

The XM satellite, onstar, heated seats, and other amenities make this truck very comfortable to drive on those longer drives. I'm getting between 18.5 and 20.5 miles to the gallon on the highway.

Worst Features

I would like to see better leather on the seats, more sound buffers under the hood and around the doors to help dampen the noise of the loud diesel.
