Review of the 1997 Chevrolet C/K 3500 Series

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Classic styling

  • Cons

    Aging design, interior styling, poorly placed dashboard cupholders, uncomfortable seats, limited rear leg room

  • 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. K1500s get a tighter turning radius, and three new colors debut. The third door option will be more widely available.

Vehicle: 1997 Chevrolet C/K 3500 Series C3500 Cheyenne 2dr Regular Cab LB

Bought this truck new, 7.4L 2WD limited slip. Used for towing 4 horse 5th wheel. I really have no major complaints. The truck has done OK for me. I baby it, and have kept up the maintainence. It mostly has highway miles, going to and from horse shows. 7.4 performed OK on the towing, not a whole lot of power, but got me up the hill.
