You may want to start by comparing the attachment. A couple of things not mentioned are the chrome ring around the headlight switch and the 6 gauge cluster vs the 4 gauge one.

Hi JK,

Here's what I know or think I know: :roll:

LS and LT are just different trim packages.
engines are the same.

What you get with LS:
LS silverado

LS Silverado model adds the following standard equipment, in addition to or replacing the above standard features:*

Interior

* Color-keyed carpeting with rubber floor mats
* Custom Cloth reclining 40/20/40 split bench with manual lumbar support and center armrest storage
* Air conditioning
* Electronic speed control with resume feature
* Leather wrapped steering wheel
* Power windows and power door locks with backlit switches
* Remote Keyless Entry and content theft alarm security system.
* AM/FM stereo with seek/scan, clock and compact disc player
* Dual chrome power exterior rearview mirrors.

Exterior

* Chrome styled-steel wheels
* Chrome rear bumper with step pad
* ScotchgardTM Protection on cloth surfaces.*



What you get with LT:

LT Silverado

LT Silverado model adds the following standard equipment, in addition to or replacing LS:*

Interior

* Heated bucket front bucket seats with leather seating surfaces and 6-way 2-position memory, power recline, lumbar and thigh support and seatback bolster
* AM/FM stereo with seek/scan, clock, cassette and compact disc players
* Self-dimming inside rearview mirror with integral compass.

Exterior

* Power, heated self-dimming exterior rearview mirrors
* Foglamps
* Rear-window defogger
* Aluminum wheels.

Functional

* Automatic transmission
* Autotrac active transfer case (4x4 models).

With all that said, my 2005 LS/SS has all the stuff of an LT truck, except Leather seats and dual power front seats. The SS part is the B4V High performance option (6.0L LQ9 motor, Traction controlled 3.73 rear diff, and upgraded 4L65 Trans), rear wheel drive only.. These trucks also came with 20" Chrome rims that were made for this style truck only.

BTW - I made up the LS/SS designation... The truck sold as the "Texas version"... LS/SS sounds sexier! :D

I hope this helped -

Quit a bit of your information is wrong. I have tried to correct it. The Red is in error and an explanation appears after.

I can't edit my first post. I added another page with features.

Hi Lou,

Maybe because my truck is a 2005 and has the High performance B4V option, but---

My truck has a leather wrapped steering wheel, my truck lists the Scotchgard protection (it's just a spray on anyway), Self-dimming inside rearview mirror with integral compass is on my rear view mirror not the DIC, Power, heated self-dimming exterior rearview mirrors is an option that my truck has as well... They also fold in automatically as well, if/when you push the button.. The option number on this one is DL3...

The truck also has rear window de-fogger, 20" chrome steel wheels, fog lamps and tow hooks...

As with anything GM, you can get loaded on your truck or car anything the factory has on the build sheet. Some options cancel out others, but anything is possible...

:D
