Review of the 1997 Chevrolet C/K 2500 Series

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Optional Vortec 5700 V-8, classic styling

  • Cons

    Aging design, interior styling, poorly placed dashboard cupholders, uncomfortable seats

  • What's New for 1997

    On trucks under 8,600 pounds GVWR, the passenger airbag can be deactivated when a rear-facing child safety seat is installed. Low-speed steering effort is reduced this year, and a refined transmission fluid pump results in smoother shifts. An alternative fuel version of the Vortec 5700 is available, but only on a specific model. K1500's get a tighter turning radius, and three new colors debut. The third door option will be more widely available.

Disappointed

by on
Vehicle: 1997 Chevrolet C/K 2500 Series K2500 HD Silverado 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

I have always been a "Chevy Man", now I am not so sure. This truck is supposed to be a HEAVY DUTY TRUCK. Transmission blew up at 75,000 mi, passenger seat broke 4 times, windshield wipers broke once, and leather seats ripped. The radio lights don't work anymore, and GM has to send out the radio to AC Delco for repair, about 2 - 3 weeks. This truck does not have a third door and desperatley needs one. Interior design sucks, no room for passengers in back. Terrible to get in and out of. Also has interior rattles/noises. Not too much room for storage!!! I can go on and on!
