2005 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 Overview

With a new hood, grille, overhead console, and an optional power sunroof, the Chevy Silverado 3500 looks a little more up-to-date for 2005. This one ton pickup has 30 trims and sports a standard 6.0 L, 300 hp V8 engine. Optional engines include 6.6 L, 300 hp, 6.6 L, 310 hp and 8.1 L 330 hp V8's.

Standard cab trims have 2 doors and seat 3 while Extended and Crew cab trims have 4 doors and seat 5-6. While standard towing capacity ranges from 9000-10000 lbs., a properly equipped Silverado 3500 can tow anywhere from 15000 up to 16600 lbs. Available drivetrains include 4 speed automatic, 5 speed manual and automatic, and 6 speed manual transmission.

Overall, drivers like the Silverado 3500's power and diverse set of engines. On the other hand, the one ton pickup's materials could use an update. Think of the 2005 Chevy Silverado 3500 as a rugged domestic pickup that sacrifices a little elegance for the extra power that helps you get the job done.
