The full-sized C/K1500 pickup was renamed Silverado in 1999.
The Silverado is much improved over the dated C/K, and has powerful, efficient engines, a more inviting interior, and better braking and handling.
Expect a stiff, choppy ride, however.
Extended-cab models received a fourth door for 2000.
The Z71 trim line has a harsh, stiff ride, but other trims ride better.
Braking performance was adequate, but interior trim is unimpressive.
The expensive Quadrasteer four-wheel steering system was available in 2004 and 2005.
