The advertising tagline “like a rock” says it all when it comes to the 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Truck Crew Cab. Despite the competition from other giants in this class, the 2005 Silverado did not budge; instead, it performed even better and surpassed some of the big names. If you wish to be pampered by reliability, you may want to take a look at this model and its snappy features, such as hydroformed frame rails; heavy-duty, four-wheel steering; and a host of technological interfaces.
Control and handling are the most prized features in the 2005 Silverado 1500. With 17-inch lower-profile tires, you’ll be able to navigate the vehicle better. It also channels enough speed and power to get you where you need to be. How does a 5.3-liter V8 producing 295 horsepower and 335 pound-feet of torque sound in this regard? Its nod to power does not completely neglect fuel economy. The Silverado 1500 gets 14 mpg in city and 19 mpg on the highway for a combined 16mpg, respectable for its size.
The 2005 Silverado 1500 prizes safety as well. Anti-lock brakes can detect tire movements under extreme braking to help the vehicle turn while the brakes are engaged. Modulated pressure prevents the wheels from locking. There are also front-impact airbags to minimize injury in case of a collision. When it comes to theft, the vehicle engages an ignition disabling device that prevents the engine from starting if an unoriginal key is used.
