GREAT TRUCK! 2001 Z71 327 (5.3)
By Ken Jensen on
2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab LS 4WD SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)
I bought this truck new. It has been a
wonderful truck with great performance!
I tested Dodge and Ford but the Chevy
handled better and had more power. I
get 16 miles to the gallon with 285 HP.
This truck will get up and move. I
owned a 2000 Z71 3 door with the same
engine and since it did not have the
limited slip rear axel it spun in the
rain badly without 4x4 selected. My
2001 now has the limited slip. Get a
Pewter colored truck. It never looks
dirty until deer season!
Button select 4 wheel drive and its 4
wheel drive performance.
On windy days there seems to be air
leaks at the door seals. I suspect a
crew cab would not have this problem.
