Work Truck — 6.0 liter pulls our gooseneck horse trailer with no problem. Great transmission which does not change up and down while going up grades. Owned the truck for one year now and have had no maintenance issue. Good dependable truck and good to work with.

Great, Reliable And Solid Truck! — solid truck, runs perfect, interior and exterior has been well maintained. Doesn't get bad gas mileage either, just recently had the K&N Cold Air Intake installed on it which has improved the breathability and MPG of the engine. Along with the Tonneau cover which also helps on improving gas mileage.

2006 Silverado 2500 Hd — Really like the reliabilty and hauling capacity. Wish i had bought a quadcab so that I could keep this truck and fit my growing family in it. I put sandbags in the bed during the winter months and get fantastic traction. Suspension is somewhat stiff, but to be expected of a HD truck. Tows like a dream and transmission is running strong as ever.

Great Truck And Holds Its Resale Value — I loved it so much, that I am buying a new one. The price on this site doesn't include the price for the Diesel motor, which is a 8000 option. And a great motor that will pull anything that you can put behind it.

Pros

Big, reliable, and comfortable truck for the family.  Good power with room for improvements on the diesel ones.  Gotta have the towing package with huge mirrors.  Great interior.

Cons

Tiny gas tank.  Econ on fuel hurts a bit.  Stiff ride but better than most heavy duties I've rode in.

Gonna Be Around A Long Time With Me Comfortable As Well. — Way more likes than complaints. It is a good family vehicle that works well on longer trips even though I would not say that was it's primary design purpose. Carry anything or pull it along and not suffer the loss of power, drivability, or much extra fuel like you would on a gas version. With a few smart upgrades you definitely have one bullet proof way of traveling.

The Hauler — Wanted the diesel to tow my car trailer to show, added a 4" MBRP stainless dual exhaust and programmable tuner. truck rides and runs awesome. Drove to NC and got 22-24 MPG unloaded and hauling the 24' enclosed trailer fully loaded with the car was a breeze. All the torque i needed.

Great Truck — With the Duramax Diesel this thing can pull 20,000lbs.Great Truck and works well. I have had no issues with it and use it as a daily driver. Solid Truck, very dependable. Have taken on some long distance trips and have found the gas mileage to be quite acceptable. Much better than my previous 2500 with the 7.4l Engine.

Buy It. — Diesel, 4x4, 3/4 ton, short bed. Power, Power, Power. Acceleration will put you back in your seat. Fuel Mileage is 16 to 20. The styling is functional. Interior is ok. Seems to be a quality vehicle. I love it.
