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: 1996 Chevrolet C/K 3500 Series

I like driving it w/o a load. I cannot get the pulling power I expected even though I have spent $1,500 to solve the problem. The dealer does not have an answer. I take very good care of it and do all the maintenance. I can barely pull a loaded 4 horse trailer or a 27' cabin boat. If I cannot solve soon, I will give up and go to another unit.
