The 2006 Chevy Silverado is the last of its generation. An all-new generation of trucks is being introduced for 2007. So look for deals on the outgoing 2006 classic versions. The 2006 Silverado rides well and handles well. It’s quick and it’s comfortable. Boxed and hydroformed frame rails provide a strong, rigid platform. It is, as the advertising tagline says, like a rock. Heated seats, a Bose stereo, XM Satellite Radio and other options make long days spent in a Silverado comfortable and enjoyable.
Silverado benefitted from some significant revisions for 2005. Lower-profile tires on 17-inch wheels provided better handling than before.
Standard equipment on all Silverado models are air conditioning, AM/FM stereo, tilt steering, a chromed front bumper, painter rear step bumber, and 17-inch painted steel wheels.
Moving up to LS trim adds cloth instead of vinyl upholstery, a CD player, and an expanded list of options.
