What's the best looking year for the Silverado? Myself, I like the look that has been out for the past couple of years. Waiting for the 2007 to come out as well.

Anyone have any thoughts?

i like the 1999-2002 ti me it is the best but my second would have to be the 73-74-to the 85-86 those square trucks were so easy to fix and customize

Yeah, my dad used to have some mid 70's Chevies when I was a kid. Got me hooked early I guess. So much so that my first truck was a 1962 GMC 3/4.

99-02 look identical (except for 01-02 had a HD version of the 2500 and had the snub nose w/ higher hood)

03-05 look similar (except for 05 the HD had the current 06 look, chrome around grill)

06 - they all look the same.

My fav would have to be the 06....but I own an 02 and my dad owns an 03 and we both like eachother's trucks.

99-02 is the best looking. Mechanically they are all pretty similar, excluding engine/transmission combinations. I used to own a 99 Chevy (4.8L V8, 4x4) until I traded it in on my GMC. That was the best truck I ever owned, and I regret trading it in everyday.

The 02-06 look is just a little wild to me. It looks like the designers at Chevrolet were trying to put a tougher, more aggressive look on the truck without altering the fundamental construction of the truck. It came out totally wrong to me.

Mine is a 5th gen (obviously from the pic) and it's probably my 2nd least favourite gen., after 6th.

3rd gen's are absolutely bad ass trucks, and my first truck was an '84 Sierra. Would love to have another one. This is my old truck.



4th gen's are great as well, as are the current 7th gens. Still though, nothing is more bad ass than a 3rd gen GM pickup.

I love the 04-06' models, I don't really care for the NBS Silverado. I guess it just looks too much like an F-150, if they are lifted then they have a little more credit to them. My absolute favorite are the 97-99' CK trucks, I just couldn't find one that wasn't all rotted out or beat to death up here in salty Ohio!

I like the 04-06 as well (not just because I own one). I have driven a couple of NBS silverados and I still like the interior/exterior design of mine better. JMHO

to me if i was gonna go buy a new truck i would get the sierra over the silverado just cause i think they look meaner, i can stand that little chrome strip of a bumper with those huge corner pieces that the chevys have. but i do also like the 03-06, i just wish i could find an 06 grill to put on my 04.:rofl:
