2006 Chevrolet Silverado Extended Cab
General Motors introduced its first pickup truck in 1930. It took 40 years of manufacturing vehicles before the term "Silverado" was first coined. From 1975 to 1999, the term "Silverado" was used to designate the trim for Suburbans, Chevrolet C/K pickup trucks, and Tahoes. During that time, GMC used a few variations of the "Sierra" name (such as High Sierra for example). Today, Chevrolet still uses the CK and CC designations in their most current model codes. For their entire history, GMC Sierra and the Chevrolet Silverado trucks share the same mechanical build, though there have been slight differences here and there. For example, there have been add-on and trim variations that are unique to each truck.
For consignment, a big rig style Silverado from 2006 and it eats and breathes fuel through a big 8.1 Liter V8, and an Allison transmission. Out of the great state of Texas a rust-free example bathed in Blue Granite and peppered with chrome and black vinyl working together to form the exterior add ons like bumpers, running board rails and wheel well surrounds. A beautiful GM tough lined bed, 4x4 capabilities, and the extra room from that extended cab, we have arrived for work.
Beautifully straight steel exterior panels bathed in GM Blue Granite paint, mind their gaps well for this big truck exterior. A smattering of chrome accenting mixed with jet black textured vinyl adorn the bumpers grille, wheel well surrounds and door trimmings. Large chromed 4-inch piping make up the foot/running boards below the cab. Tinted glass is throughout, and the bed is lined with a GM factory plastic tough liner in excellent condition looking barely used. This tall truck is jacked up for extra ground clearance for the 4x4 and has shiny polished wheels on all 4 corners wrapped in Venezia radial rubber.
Opening the nearly perfect condition with tan vinyl molded door panels we make the climb aboard past Bose speakers and into the front tweed broadcloth bucket seats. These are flanking a large and in charge center console complete with storage area cup holders and its rise the dash with more storage cubbies! Above all this menagerie is the climate controls, and AM/FM/CD radio with built in equalizer. The original dash instrument panel is in front of the driver and has the full gauge package for ultimate monitoring. Slipping through the small suicide swinging rear 1/2 door we arrange ourselves on to a large bench for 3 additional passengers, in matching tweed broadcloth to the front buckets. Clean tan carpeting floods the floors and a tan headliner is above. Plenty of power conveniences are installed options on this truck.
An 8.1 Liter V8 gasser With EFI and an Allison automatic transmission on back is under the hood. All is clean and looking good with this power plant.
Underneath is all extremely clean and just a slight hint of some surface rust is noted. All solid and buttoned up on the structural front, and on the suspension, we see all HD parts. Independent suspension is up front and leaf springs are on the rear. 4-wheel power disc brakes bring you and your load to a stop. Looking good down below courtesy of the state of Texas!
This monster 8.1 fired right up, and ran like a large truck with all 8 cylinders delivering power to the wheels. It took right off and has lots of power to spare so with the added hitch you could tow something...easily. All was working very nicely and a comfy cab if you will.
All fits and finishes are still in excellent condition, as are the mechanicals, interior and clean undercarriage. A work truck I hesitate to say if it has worked really hard, rather just shuttled people around for its lifetime it looks really nice overall!
