2004 Chevrolet Silverado Z71 5.3L from North America
Excellent performer for the $$$
So far this has been an exceptional truck. Nice ride on the highway and not too bumpy on uneven pavement. Slightly sloppy/noisy shifting at low speeds is the only complaint.
The engine is very strong and I average about 19mpg on the highway, 14 in the city.
If you are looking for a truck to customize, this is your beast. Very easy to add performance and cosmetic accessories. Availability is top-of-the-line.
For 2K you can add an intake, exhaust and computer upgrade and easily add 50hp!!! I'm not kidding. This engine begs for improvement over vanilla stock items. I added a Gibson exhaust, K&N intake, Jet computer and mass airflow sensor, and MSD ignition and the results are breathtaking. Great sound and easily 350HP/400Lb.Ft. of torque.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
