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
  • Pros

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

    Cons:

  • Cons

    Cheap interior materials, sketchy build quality.

  • What's New for 2001

    An available PRO TEC composite truck box and optional traction control are the biggest changes for the Silverado this year. New colors have been added and the OnStar vehicle assistance system debuts as a midyear option.

Still a champ

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab LT 4WD SB w/out OnStar (5.3L 8cyl 4A)

I bought this truck from a family member. It was better than new then, and is pretty close now. I'm amazed at the power and handling that this truck has when compared to its size. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good used truck.




Best truck i ever owned

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab LT 4WD SB w/out OnStar (5.3L 8cyl 4A)

This is the best truck I ever owned. No major problems except for air conditioning belt, and replaced brakes at 7,000 miles now have 52,000 miles and no problems. Captian chairs excellent heated seat's are great in winter time. Only problem with interior, is the back seat does not give enough leg room for my growing kids.I pull a 5,000lb horse trailer in the MT, and I cant tell it's there. I look forward to up grading to the 2500HD crew cab on day.. If you want a good family truck get the silverado...

Good truck

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab LT 4WD SB w/out OnStar (5.3L 8cyl 4A)

I bought this truck used with 20K miles on it. To date I've put 7300 miles on it and it has been a super vehicle. (If you're looking to get 45 MPG you're looking at the wrong vehicle!) Compared with Ford and Dodge power and mileage is great. I'm averaging 17 around town and about 20 on interstates. To date I've had no problems and only spent for maintenance items on the vehicle. I would buy another!




Comfortable ride

I have a Z-71 ext cab LT, and I have enjoyed everything about the truck. The ride is superb compared to Ford or Dodge. Gas mileage could be improved. (Interstate only 16mpg)

ther body style could be modified and not be so boxy. The ride could be smoother
