Power wise I have been very happy with the truck, I pull a heavy gooseneck horse trailer cross country a couple times a year, as well as haul a lot of hay. Gas mileage stinks but, I expect that. It is very comfortable to drive also. The problem is the body design - the dang thing is literally coming to pieces. I live in a rural area with rough roads. This truck is just not designed to handle it. Soon I will have to have a flatbed put on because every brace on the wheel wells is broken loose and rattling. I have used G.M. trucks for 23 years, this one is the worst ever as far as durability. The next one will likely be a Dodge, or back to an older, tougher G.M.

This is my first big truck of my own. I worked for a company and drove their trucks like this but they were poorly taken care of. I moved up from a S-10. This truck is great; lots of power, rides ok, very dependable, comfortable, quiet inside the cab -- not much road noise or wind noise.

The 2500HD is most powerful vehicle
I've ever owned. I ordered the 8.1
Vortec with an Allison 5 speed
automatic transmission, 2WD, 3.73 rear
end and still get a respectable 15.5
mpg. It pulls my 3,500 lb. bass boat
like it's not even there. This truck
is extremely powerful and fun to
drive. I've owned at least a dozen
pickup trucks and this is by far my
favorite. I highly recomend this truck
to anyone that wants a truck with hot
Both light- and heavy-duty 2500s sport new torsion bar front suspensions. Light-duty models get an 8,600-pound Gross Vehicle Weight Rating in addition to optional traction control and standard child safety-seat tether hooks. Heavy-duty models are completely redesigned for 2001 offering two new engines and transmissions, bigger interiors and numerous other improvements.
