If your truck is not big, bold, and assertive enough to handle the heavy mechanical equipment you haul on a daily basis, then it may be time for an upgrade. The Chevy Silverado 1500 hit the market in 1999, with the rugged styling expected from a GM pickup. Up until the 2006 model year, the most popular configuration came with a powerful V8 engine paired with four-speed automatic transmission. You can also find five-speed automatic versions as well as hybrids with a power point in the pickup bed. With more upscale styling and improved drivetrains, the second generation Chevy Silverado 1500 remains one of the best trucks in its class. Go all the way back to the 2000 Chevy Silverado 1500 to find the original fourth access door on extended cab models. For a solid truck with no substantial update from previous models, check out the 2002 Chevy Silverado 1500. Making it easy to drive to new locations, the 2012 Chevy Silverado 1500 features an updated navigation system. You can find a full range of these Chevys among the vast automobile inventory on eBay.
