Review of the 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

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

  • Safety

    Roomy extended cab models, strong V8 engines, available composite bed, disc brakes at all four corners, optional traction control.

    Cons:

    Cheap interior materials, sketchy build quality.

Great truck

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab 4WD LB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)

Purchased this plain jane w/t truck in 2006 with over 100,000 now have 185,000 and still runs strong. only minor issues V6 is underpowered at times but gets the job done if you do light to none hauling and towing. overall pretty good truck.

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab 4WD LB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)

I bought my 2000 silveraldo extended cab sportside new. I have had no problems out of it. I think it is wonderful. I can not go anywhere, without someone telling me how nice it is, plus so many have offered to buy it from me. It is not for sale...lol I have the 4.8 engine, and it truely has the power. The cab room is amazing, and I love the 4 doors. I have pictures of my 2wd in snow up to the top of the wheel whales, yet I have never had it stuck. I have been able tp go, when I seen others stuck. That makes it the right truck for me. It is dependable, yet it is sleek in design, and is very durable.
