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.

Best truck on the road

Vehicle: 1996 Chevrolet C/K 2500 Series

It's a heavy duty long bed with canopy and steel rack - diesel so 13 loaded and 15 on the road unloaded is good gas mileage! This truck goes anywhere in the snow with a load in the back! Starts anytime! Gives real security whenever, where ever! Only complaint is the heat/AC. Barely warm enough in the real cold on the road but does keep the frost off your nose and the AC just wouldn't stay charged. Good thing I live in the Seattle/Tacoma area! Defrost works fine! Love this truck!




Chevy 3/5 ton

Vehicle: 1996 Chevrolet C/K 2500 Series

I've had this truck 10 years. What a great truck. Hauled and hauled and never a real issue. Under-powered at high altitude with a full load. Only minor issues along the way, fuel pump, alternator, battery. The brakes lasted over 75,000 miles, not bad.
