Awsome Truck — great performance, perfect throttle response, upgraded brake system so stops fast, handles good, in process of up grading. Good solid truck, has minor defects, needs basic cosmetic work, no squeaks or rattles. NEEDs paint! I average 12 to 16 depending on my foot, rarely needs maintenance, prices are very reasonable. If you like older models this is a awesome truck to drive, people usually move out of your way, if not put in neutral and rap exhaust a little they will.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Shes a classic, best truck made

Cons: If your not used to driving big long vehicles this truck aint for ya.

Good Buy For The Money — I grew up driving one of these. I think they are great solid trucks. Pleanty of engine compartment room to stuff just about what ever you want in it. Agile for it's size and pleanty of power to do what ever you want with it.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Good solid truck

Cons: Poor gas milage

Tank!!! It's A Beasty Burban!!! — Great truck, built bulletproof with a 454, TH400, and 12 Rear End. Hauls 15,000# with 3.73 gearing. No rust!!! Everyone complains about old Chevys rusting, only the cheap ones do, ya get whatcha pay for! Never a single problem and never let me down even with over 350,000 miles on her. It's true what they say, You can depend on your Chevrolet on a cold day!!!

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Power, Towing Capacity, Comfort, Handling, Reliability, Strong Drivetrain

Cons: Fuel Mileage

87 Turbo Diesel Suburban — 4x4 6.2L DIESEL, BANKS TURBO, AC, POWER WINDOWS. bout to be grease, fun to drive. ok mpg, not rediculous like some other guzzlers out there. the thing looks ok from the outside too for an 87, though it does need my touch. u cant even knock the chevys it says 21.7k and i dont even care how many actual miles it has.

Pros: sounds great, great torque, good engine, and cool upgrades.

Cons: I had to bust out a grinder to install the head unit, tranny seldom chatters

Summary>? This Truck Has So Much To Offer A Summary Is Impossable — However a full review. As most ppl know a chev is a chev is a chev. But wht ppl don't know is when you put the word Starcraft in the description, the vehicle value doubles. I have 4 captains chairs and a folding bench in the back carpet and felt throughout, not to mention the interrior lighting package... wow. a must see at any event and a real croud pleaser.

Pros: Size

Cons: Size

I think that Chevy messed up with the new Silverado compared to the older ones and the older ones still have more power. But compared to the F-150 the Silverado is a joke.
