Great Truck
By AzJones on


2006 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Work Truck 2dr Regular Cab 4WD LB (6.0L 8cyl 5M)


Good power (no problems keeping up with traffic)... Decent mileage (around 14.5 - 15.5 mpg's) ... Reasonably comfortable for a heavy hauler ... Definitely love the manual trans (use 1st gear for first 500 miles ... after that use only when towing). Additionally, I like the styling, though Dodge and Ford look good also. In my opinion, you cant go wrong with any of the big 3's 2500 series trucks ... Test drive em all and decide which one you think you look best in. Suggested options are locking diff, sliding rear window, snow plow prep (gives more powerful alternator), on/off road tires, towing pkg, and extra battery (not for starting but any accessories). Hope this helps some folks

Best Features

Best in class payload, ride height, power and of course the NV4500 5 speed trans ... Its an older trans that can take a beating (besides which, 6 forward gears is too many) ...

Worst Features

Get rid of cheap 40/20/40 seat in work truck ... Middle section doesnt fold down, noone can sit on it (no matter how small)
