Why buy more truck than you can use but settle for less than you need? Chevrolet doesn't think that makes sense, so it offers a 2500-series light-duty Silverado to slot between humdrum half-tons and big-bruiser heavy-duties. Ask the Toyota salesperson if the Tundra can do that.

I haul firewood in the winter time. I load the bed to capacity and a little beyond. The truck hauls it with little to no effort. Tons of power! I put BF Goodrich mud terrain tires for when I have to get off road to reach where I am cutting at. Effortlessly goes thru mud, off road conditions. Interior is spacious and comfortable. Very easy to clean and maintain. I have had no mechanical problems with this truck at all in over 3 years or ownership. Extremely solidly built. I see Dodge and Fords both in the shop. Not so with Chevy trucks!
Three-quarter-ton Silverados get few changes for 2002. A high-capacity air cleaner and air conditioning are now standard on all models. All extended cabs get a four-speed automatic transmission standard.
