SSSomeday Posted March 22, 2005 Report Share Posted March 22, 2005 I don't know if this has been done before, but I thought some of you guys would want to say what you would like to see on your next gen (supposedly making an appearance as a 2007 Model) Silverado truck. I think the SS forum is a good site for this because these are Chevrolet's top of the line truck buyers, we are the ones buying the most expensive, optioned out trucks. I have an 04 Z71, decided on it over the SS at the last minute but still almost bought the SS and will probably be a GM truck buyer for life. The problem is, I'm tired of seeing nicer looking and more optioned out trucks than I can get. You can get a brand new Nissan with 33" tires and a frickin in dash navigation system. Where is all that from GM? Sure I can buy that aftermarket, but I would love to be able to buy all that from the factory, warrantied and ready to go. Interior options: In Dash LCD Navigation Bluetooth sync up for mobile phone (similar to Acura, BMW, others) iPod hook up in glove box Aux audio input on dash Exterior options: Sunroofs, how about dual for a crew cab? Body color bumpers/grill option. ALL OTHER TRUCK MAKERS HAVE THIS. TONS AND TONS OF CHROME IS A LITTLE 1980's. Power extended cab windows (yeah, I don't use mine either. But I would if they were power controlled) Special edition trucks: You have the SS line which is high performance. I would say that just as many, if not more people tend to customize trucks for off-road use than on-road high performance. I may be totally wrong, it's probably just because I live in Texas. That being said, how about a high performance Z71 truck - 2-3 inches higher than a Z71, 33" tall tires, etc. Kind of the ZR2 (chevy s-10 with a lift) of the Silverado world. Maybe they wouldn't sell in NYC, but you wouldn't be able to keep them on the lot in Texas. Nobody at GM will probably ever read this, but I just have a ton of ideas running around in my head. Maybe somebody on the board will come up with something useful that GM might actually use. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
