Great Truck

by
Apr 26, 2010 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Allison Transmission and duramax diesel
Cons: slightly rough ride but still the best of the big 3
The Bottom Line: Great truck for a family or somebody that needs to haul frequently.

This truck is awesome. Mine is opted out with the available 6.6L Duramax Diesel which gives it about 360 horsepower and around 660 ft-lb. of torque. The Allison six-speed automatic shifts seamlessly in everyday driving, but switch it into the manual mode ... read more

Fullsize...in all ways

by
Mar 7, 2008 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Good FE for a fullsize. Roomy cabin. Cheap cost of ownership
Cons: Too big for small driveways or garages. bed is too high up for easy loading.
The Bottom Line: I would recomend this truck only for people who NEED a fullsize pickup truck. If you don't need a 1/2ton frame get a compact or a large car.

Okay i owned an 06 Silverado 1500 Work Truck package. 4.3L/5spd 2wd. All around I was very happy with this truck. It could tow my boats and cars around with a minimum of effort. For real towing you would need both the steeper gearing and a v8 option. ... read more

This 1500 Silverado is a little weak in the payload Department

by
Feb 17, 2008 - Updated Feb 7, 2009 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Good mileage, reliability, overall low cost of operation.
Cons: Payload rating doesn't match the actual load I've placed on the truck.
The Bottom Line: It's definitely a light duty truck that I've pushed to the limit. I'm having to keep a close eye on the rear suspension. Worth the price I paid.

The following review is for my 2006 1500 Silverado regular cab long bed work truck with the basic LS trim package. It has a 4300 Vortec V6, 4 speed automatic transmission, Air conditioning, 4 wheel ABS.  ~Intro~ Ford says ... read more
