I have the 4.3L V6 with a 4L60
automatic. The engine has good torque
however, it is not especially
powerful. Conservative driving
typically yields 18-21 mpg on the
Towing a maximum load of 7,000 lbs the
truck performed pretty well. However,
this probably exceeds the tow rating
of the 1/2 ton so for heavy towing I
would highly recommend an auxiliary
trans cooler and a trans temperature
The long bed provides excellent cargo
capacity. I have hauled up to 3
motocross bikes and all required tools
Overall this truck has served very
well with no major maintenance
required so far.
Recently added 18" wheels with
245/55/18 BFGs which greatly improved
handling. Bullet proof Engine.
Engines and transmissions interchange
with most GM trucks 1988-1998 so
upgrading and repair costs are
Could use more power from the 4.3
(later Vortecs have 200 hp v. 160 hp).
Interior is a little cheap but has
worn fairly well. The seat foam is
not good and wears down quickly.
