For those seeking a fast truck, this
ain't it. The 6.5L Turbo Diesel doesn't
make the rear end chirp the pavement,
but rather it feels more like the
street is being pulled towards you.
There's alot of negative hype about the
6.5 Chevy Diesel. Don't listen to it.
The key is simply maintenance. The
truck runs as good as the day I bought
it. Oil changes, transmission services,
air/fuel filter replacements, and a few
minor repairs are all that's needed to
keep this motor running in top shape.
A revised interior graces these full-size trucks this year. A new driver-side airbag and a shift interlock are added in the interest of safety. The latter requires the brake pedal to be depressed before the automatic transmission's gear selector can be shifted out of "Park," reducing the likelihood that the vehicle will move suddenly and unexpectedly. Power mirrors, revised climate controls and cupholders provide a more user-friendly interior environment.
Mechanical enhancements include the addition of standard four-wheel antilock brakes, improvements in the engines and modifications to the heavy-duty automatic gearbox. The four-wheel ABS replaces last year's rear-wheel-only antilock system. Various upgrades to the engines are intended to reduce noise improve durability and/or increase efficiency. The transmission is revised for quicker 1-2 upshifts during full-throttle applications.
