Review of the 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

  • Chevrolet makes a pretty good pick-'em-up if powerful engines are your thing. But even after a recent redesign, it still has a ways to go to match the Ford F-150 and Toyota Tundra when it comes to the quality of the materials and assembly.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Fourth-door access standard on extended cab models, strong 4800 and 5300 V8 engines, programmable power door locks, disc brakes at all four corners.

  • Cons

    Cheap interior materials, sketchy build quality.

  • What's New for 2000

    After a complete redesign last year, few changes make news for 2000. Most substantial is the addition of an optional fourth access door to extended cab models. The already potent Vortec 4800 and 5300 V8 engines make more power, and programmable door locks can be instructed to unlock automatically when the Silverado is shut off. A Sportside cargo box is available on 1500 LT models, and 1500 4WD trucks can be equipped with wheel flares this year. LS and LT trucks get a standard electrochromic self-dimming rearview mirror with compass and exterior temperature display, and a soft tonneau cover is available from the factory.

Love my 2000 chevy

Vehicle: 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS 3dr Extended Cab 4WD LB

I have had very little problems with my truck. I use this truck for work and haul my bobcat around. I have hauled my boat over 1200 miles with one trip with this truck. No problems. The engine finally went out at 295,000 but I replaced with a Chevrolet engine that had 93,000 miles and I know it will run 200,000 more for me. I will own nothing else than a Chevrolet. They mean it when they say " built to last ".




Great truck

Vehicle: 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS 3dr Extended Cab 4WD LB

This is our first extended cab long bed truck and wow, drives like a Cadillac, so powerfull and smooth, we just love it. And the 8ft bed is so useful and the best MPG i've ever had in a V8 truck. 5.3 V8 has more than enough power (but i'm still gonna add some tuning goodies,lol) Interior is more like a luxury car leather, power heated seats, lumbar support, excellent driving postion. I 've been driving Chevys for years and this is the best ever. Get the LT its got every bell or whistle you'll ever need and a few you dont, but its nice to have them anyway.




Silverado problems

Vehicle: 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS 3dr Extended Cab 4WD LB

I have owned the vehicle for 3 years with minor problems fixed the 1st year. I am having problems with the ABS brake system that other friends have had. Now have 62K on the truck and ABS goes on even when not needed. Sensor problem I think. Chevy should have fixed by now.




Best truck i'v ever driven

Vehicle: 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS 3dr Extended Cab 4WD LB

I'v been blessed to have had the experience of driving a multitude of vehicle with my civilian and military careers. This truck is the best all around vehicle that I've driven. The performance of the 5.3L engine is exceptional. Highly recomend, a great buy!!!
