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.

Best truck ever

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 2dr Regular Cab LS 2WD SB (4.3L 6cyl 5M)

Owned since new, has 175,000km. Not a single problem ever, only money spent has been on regular maintenance. Has the 4.8 V8 which as a ton of power for this small truck and gets about 12l/100km.




Poor transmission

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 2dr Regular Cab LS 2WD SB (4.3L 6cyl 5M)

After about 36000 the transmission will start slipping and goes out. The 96 mph governor also puts a damper on freeway passing




2001 ls 4.8 v8 sb

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 2dr Regular Cab LS 2WD SB (4.3L 6cyl 5M)

Pros: Nice paint (I love the Metallic Blue), Engine!! (4.8L has the power)...I'm sure 5.?L would burn up tires. Decently designed interior. Stereo is adequate. Cons: Poor build quality with noises in dash and electrical problem right off of the lot! Reliability ratings are poor at best from my readings but my experience has been okay so far. I would recommend the truck for the love of driving a powerful Chevy truck that looks nice...don't buy it for a long-term owner... SF
