2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Work Truck 4x4 Extended Cab 6.5 ft. box 143.5 in. WB OverviewThe choice for best full-size pickup is not as clear as it was three years ago, when the Chevrolet Silverado and the GMC Sierra appeared to be the leaders of the pack.Since then, Ford has introduced an all-new F-150, Dodge has re-engineered the Ram, Toyota has added a Crew Cab model to its Tundra line, and Nissan has rolled out the appropriately named Titan.There isn't a dog among them.All are superb in their own way.
Yet Silverado still rides as well or better than any of them, and it handles well.It's quick and it's comfortable.Boxed and hydroformed frame rails give Silverado a strong, rigid platform.It is, as the advertising tagline says, like a rock.Silverado's interior was significantly updated in 2003, and so was its electrical system.Quadrasteer, GM's heavy-duty four-wheel-steering, is available for a number of different models, improving maneuverability in tight quarters or when pulling a trailer.Heated seats, a Bose stereo, XM Satellite Radio and other options make long days spent in a Silverado comfortable and enjoyable.
For 2005, most Silverados come with wider, lower-profile tires on 17-inch wheels, promising better handling than before.Short-box Extended Cabs with 4WD now offer a more powerful all-alumium V8, while a gas/electric Hybrid option promises lower operating cost with V8 performance.There's a sporty SS model, for buyers who value muscle-car acceleration and handling over towing/hauling capacity.More minor changes for 2005 include dual electric cooling fans, which are quieter and more efficient than the engine-driven fan used previously.Aerodynamic refinements to the front end and running boards reduce wind noise and promise a slight improvement in fuel economy,
Those who value a smooth-riding truck with a low load height should compare a two-wheel-drive Silverado to the other full-size pickups; lifting heavy equipment into the back of high-riding trucks is hard on the back.
