2005 2500HD First 3000 Miles
By Don Underwood on


2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 2dr Regular Cab 4WD LB (6.0L 8cyl 5M)


Good basic work truck. This is a 2005 2500HD 4X4, regular cab, 6.0 w/manual trans. The manual transmission helps the fuel economy if you keep your foot light on the gas pedal. The first 3000 miles (first month) has been very satisfactory. Highway fuel economy is been slightly over 17 when running 2300 rpms or less. City average about 13.5. Weekly average of mixed hwy/city about 15. Towing (boat) at highway speeds about 13/14.

Best Features

Great visability. Good seat - Get the seat upgrade cause this truck has a stiff ride. Best feature --it's American -- some of us still remember what that means.

Worst Features

Get rid of the plastic on the front and put some real bumpers on this truck. Leave the cheap grey/black plastic to Ford, Dodge, and the import toys. Keep offering manual transmissions -- some of us know how to use them and appreciate the improved fuel economy and better off road and work capability.
