    Default Question on the model differences.

    I have a 2008 Chevy Silverado LT 1500 Summer Edition 4.8L

    the question i have is what is so different about the "summer edition" than any other LT model. I have done some research of my own and cant see what the difference is like if it came with more / different options. any help is much appreciated!

    nopee no sunroof..

    only options i would say it has are factory tints, running boards, and spray in bed liner

    no Z71, no sliding back window, no premium wheels, no tow package

    so i am not so sure why there is a "summer edition" badge right above the Silverado one... seems like a regular LT model in my opinion

    I've still never figured out what any of the special editions are. Around here, I've seen Texas editions, Bayou editions, a GMC with 'Nevada edition' on it, hell I don't know. I think I've even seen a Saints edition. For all I can see, they just add chrome steps and door handles. Maybe the summer edition comes with a supercharged A/C system and an ice chest in the back?

    Haha... great thread. I have absolutely no idea. I've never heard of "summer edition" but I have certainly heard of Texas Edition.
