2006 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 - Work Truck 4x2 Regular Cab 6.5' Box
Cons: 6 cylinder engine is underpowered.
Advice: I have sworn off Chevrolets. 2 New Suburbans and 1 New Silverado in last 5 years - all with serious mechanical problems.Engine blowing smoke at 5K miles - took to Dealer and was advised that would do more damage to take apart and find out what was wrong - wanted to wait until engine fails. Refuses to fix problem. Tailpipe still full of carbon, although I haven't seen smoke in a while.
2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 - LT1 4x2 Extended Cab 6' Box
Pros: LT1 features in the cab. A lot for the money.
Cons: Needs more legroom in the rear and cupholders in the rear doors.
Advice: Get one !!!Picked mine up last week. What sold me was how quiet the truck was inside at highway speeds. Very quiet. In addition, the 4.8L V-8 has plenty of power for the work I do. Also, the truck really handles rough terrain very well even though mine is 2WD. Chevrolet definitely got it right.
2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 - Z71 4x4 Extended Cab 6.5' Box
Pros: Driving comfort.
Cons: Noisy rear side windows. Latch does not close them tight enough. Noisy at about 70+ MPH
Advice: I think this truck will give you the best value out of the big 3, Dodge and Ford.The truck drives like a Cadillac. Very comfortable. 5.3 liter engine provides plenty of pep and power. I tow a 3,000 lbs.+ boat and trailor with ease. I had a handful of small things go wrong during the 3 yr. warranty. The 4 wheel anti-lock brakes take some time to get used to. I use it off-road road at times and it performs very well. Not Baja stuff, you would be better off with the Nisson Titan for that. Over all it's a great truck, right price.

2006 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 - LT1 4x2 Crew Cab

2006 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 - LS2 Sport 4x2 Crew Cab
Pros: It's a truck that has the room and comfort of a car
Cons: gas mileage
Advice: Definately get the 5.3 over the smaller V8, gas mileage/performance is betterBought this vehicle new, first new vehicle ever owned. We got it when GM was offering great rebates and got it for about $10,000 off the sticker. I love my truck and the four door configuration means we use it as our 'family' vehicle. It seats 6 people comfortably. My daughter said the back seat feels like an 'easy chair' compared to her grandmother's Nissan Titan, which was stiff and hard. I hate the fact that due to my job being 1 hour away, I am having to consider trading it for a small car for the gas mileage.
