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.

Farm truck

Vehicle: 1996 Chevrolet C/K 3500 Series

This truck has been on the farm for 11 years, and with minor problems and one recall, has been trouble free and hard working. We have hauled cattle, fertilizer and chemicals, wood, machinery and countless other loads and the thing just keeps going. This engine did have an injector pump problem, but GM extended the warranty out and the problem was fixed on a 10 year old truck- no questions asked. I am keeping this truck for around the farm, but hope the new Duramax will prove as serviceable as this K 3500.
