The 2004 Chevrolet Silverado full-size pickup is GM’s best-selling vehicle. New for 2004 are a roomy and comfortable 1500 Series half-ton Crew Cab in 2- or 4-wheel drive and a 2500 Series 3/4-ton Crew Cab rated at 8,600 pounds GVW.

A number of standard features have been added to the base Silverado for 2004, including cruise control, power door locks, black bodyside moldings, chrome bumpers and uplevel wheels. An AM/FM radio with CD player is now standard, and all 2004 Silverado models can be fitted as work trucks, except the 2500 Crew Cab.

The Quadrasteer four-wheel steering system – which offers low-speed maneuverability and high-speed stability, handling and control ideal for pulling a trailer – is available on 1500 Extended Cab short-box and 2500 Crew Cab pickups, marking the first time this system has been available on a 3/4-ton truck. At low speeds, this revolutionary system enables the rear wheels to turn in the opposite direction of the front wheels. That helps the vehicle make tighter turns, such as when cornering or getting into a tight parking space.
