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. A gas/electric Hybrid option promised lower operating cost with V8 performance. A sporty SS model debuted, for buyers who value muscle-car acceleration and handling over towing/hauling capacity. More minor changes for 2005 included dual electric cooling fans, which are quieter and more efficient than the engine-driven fan used previously; while aerodynamic refinements to the front end and running boards reduced wind noise and promised a slight improvement in fuel economy. Chevrolet announced no changes for 2006.
Silverado LT is more luxurious, with upgraded upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and power windows, locks and mirrors. Again the Crew Cab version comes with more, including an upgraded six-speaker stereo. The 5.3-liter V8 is standard on LT Crew Cabs.
