Reliable, uncomplicated and dependable transportation.
2006 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Work Truck
It is a regular cab, short wheelbase pickup truck. It has no more space in the cab than I need. It heats up quickly in the winter and cools quickly in the summer. It is a work truck or WT designation, which means no frills. The floor mats are rubber, no carpet, which makes cleaning the cab a breeze. The door locks and windows are manual, which is no longer offered in most pickups. With manual controls, there are less electronic components to malfunction. Since I do not drive this vehicle on the freeway often, a smaller more fuel efficient six cylinder engine is much more economical. I think that many people like me would purchase simple, inexpensive but dependable vehicles such as this one. I would applaud any manufacturer to produce more simple vehicles. These would be less expensive to operate, less expensive to insure and capable of lasting 150,000 miles or more.
