by Erik on Jun 30, 2009 Vehicle: 1993 Chevrolet C/K 3500 Series
Family owned since new. Very reliable and great to drive. Fuel mileage is not that great but considering it is 454 with 4.10 gears 14 mpg is not bad. Could get a 1 ton with better economy but this one is paid for and the average payment on a new one will buy a lot of gas even at $3/gal. Here in rural IA there are many Chev/GMCs of this vintage still working hard. I know it will always start regardless of the temp. I plan to pass this one down to my son (it was my father's truck).

I bought this truck new. I own a
construction company and have enjoyed
driving this. My son drove it for 3
years and now I am going to sell it. I
have a 2000 Silverado 3/4 and it does
not have near the power and the seat is
very uncomfortable! I have loved
owning this truck but my son bought his
own car so we do not need it anymore.
For anyone who is looking for a great
vehicle the 1993 truck with the big
engine has been awesome. The gas
mileage is not so great but....
Safety is enhanced with the side door guard beams designed to minimize intrusion into the passenger compartment during a side impact. A center high-mounted brake light is also added to enhance safety.
Chevy boasts it is the first automaker to offer a turbodiesel engine option in a vehicle with a gross vehicle weight rating less than 8,500 pounds.
Rust corrosion protection is improved while interior noise vibration and harshness is reduced. Rounding out the list of significant improvements are the addition of an "easy entry" feature to the front passenger seat on extended cab body styles to ease entry into the rear seating positions and the revision of the exterior front-end styling.
