Chevy Silverado pickups are built on a rock-solid foundation, which was used to set an even higher standard for full-size pickups today – and down the road. Chevrolet. For All Life’s Roads. *Dependability based on longevity; 1981-July 2004 full-size light-duty pickup registrations, including chassis cabs.
INTO OUR SPECIFICATIONS. It’s a whole new ball game. No longer is a Crew Cab exclusively a utilitarian work truck. The Silverado 1500 Crew Cab changed all that. It’s the truck with a spacious and comfortable six- passenger cab. And easy access through four wide-opening, front-hinged full-size doors.
BETTER KNOWN AS THE FAMILY CAB. The most rugged family-oriented vehicles on the road today just happen to be pickups: the Silverado 1500 Crew Cab and its heavy-duty sibling, the 1500HD with the 6 ft. 6 in. box and the 300 horsepower Vortec 6000 V8.
Performance Edition that features the 345 horsepower 6.0L VortecMAX V8 engine and beefy 20-in. wheels. All built with the strength and dependability that Chevy’s famous for. Silverado 1500 LT Extended Cab 5 ft. 8 in. short box, shown in Silver Birch Metallic with available Z71 Off-Road Package.
1500 EXTENDED CAB INTERIOR A WARM WELCOME AWAITS YOU. Step inside the Silverado 1500 Extended Cab and you’ll immediately notice that this supremely capable pickup is also tremendously well appointed. That point is really driven home by the advanced comfort of the LT’s standard heated front bucket seats with 8-way power adjusters.
SILVERADO 1500 CONTROLS IS YOUR TRUCK TRYING TO TELL YOU SOMETHING? That old adage that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure applies to Silverado’s comprehensive, standard Driver Information Centre. This multi-language display on the instrument panel keeps you up to date on the status of numerous important vehicle functions, including when an oil change is required.
ONE MEAN MACHINE. The Silverado SS sure looks mean, with its lowered chassis, monochromatic colour scheme and 20-in. aluminum sport wheels. The performance is no less aggressive – the new 345 hp 6.0L VortecMAX V8 works in combination with a heavy-duty four-speed automatic transmission, four-wheel disc brakes with ABS and the high-performance suspension package to deliver a truly responsive drive.
IN THIS CASE, THE SEQUEL IS EVEN BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL. When the combination of the Duramax 6600 Diesel V8 and the Allison 1000 Series automatic transmission was introduced, it revolutionized diesel power for heavy-duty full- size pickups. For 2006, that powertrain combination is even better, thanks to the addition of an extra transmission gear, 50 more horsepower and 45 lb.-ft.
SILVERADO POWER/TOWING THE POWER OF CHOICE. There’s lots of news under the hood of Silverado for 2006. The new 345 hp VortecMAX V8, the 360 hp Duramax 6600 Diesel V8 and the 310 hp High Output Vortec 5300 V8 lead the way. But what really separates Silverado’s engine lineup isn’t only the incredible output of these engines, it’s also the range.
FEATURES OF THE DURAMAX 6600 DIESEL V8: 1 A revised and more aerodynamically efficient variable nozzle turbocharger with an air-to-air intercooler help deliver smooth, immediate response and lower emissions. 2 The Bosch direct-injection system maximizes power and efficiency for each pulse of fuel used. The common-rail fuel injection system uses an advanced electronic controller and pilot injection for quieter, smoother operation and reduced emissions.
THE END OF IDLING. Stop idling – the future is here right now. Introducing the first full- size hybrid pickup in production: the Silverado 1500 Extended Cab Hybrid. Instead of a conventional starter and alternator, the parallel hybrid technology integrates a compact electric motor/generator between the Vortec 5300 V8 gasoline-powered engine and the automatic transmission.
It even lets you know when your engine oil needs changing. 1 BRAKING SYSTEM Silverado 1500 Series features standard 17-in. wheels,* permitting the use of large rear drum brakes. They also improve brake pedal feel and are easier to service than the previous disc with drum-in-hat design.
