2001 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Crew Cab 4dr Crew Cab LS 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 5M)


Review

Best truck has the 8.1 with the allison tranny. Has power and with a full load it won't bog down. All one ton and in great condition lots of miles over 216k but still runs strong, I never have a problem with the truck, I use it to pull and drive on a daily basis. The 4x4 works great too.When needing to it will turn all 4 tires without a problem. With all the normal maintenance it runs strong with no problems. I highly recommend this truck for any occasion or any reason.


Favorite Features

The cold air, seats, room in the cab, pulling ability,power


Suggested Improvements

a little better gas mileage

Review

2WD. Bought this truck used from a friends dealer. Love everything except the engine knock. Keep hearing the knock is OK. Seems to have plenty of power but still don't trust the noise. Plenty of room for a family of five pulling a 30 ft camper. Still looking for the answer to the knock.


Favorite Features

Lots of room inside, very comfortable when loaded. Extendable mirrors. Hopefully strong engine for long time.


Suggested Improvements

Heated and electric mirrors, better turning radius and fix the engine knock.

Review

I have the pop-up goose neck hitch and the 8.1L engine. Massive power, but massive gas guzzler. It will pass everything but a gas station.


Favorite Features

Leather, interior room


Suggested Improvements

Better gas mileage

Review

Purchased at 30k miles, now 52k, no mechanical problems at all, runs great. Factory Firestone tires were terrible for ride and traction, switched to 265 BFG All Terrains, huge improvement. I like everything but the gas mileage. I get about 11.5 mpg.


Favorite Features

Running boards which keep the truck clean. The generous extended cab. Good handling and overall good quality.


Suggested Improvements

Better factory tires.

Review

This is a very good truck for pulling something less than 12,000 pounds. It is a very good truck and I haven't had any problems with it. It has 335 horse power with 385 pounds of torque.


Favorite Features

The power, the leather seats, and the onstar and the 4x4 buttons on the dash.

Review

This has been a great vehicle. I've driven over 82,000 miles with no significant problems. Very dependable, powerful, and efficient. The swiss army knife of vehicles, it can do just about anything (except make tight turns). I plan to have this vehicle well past 200,000 miles. The only problems I've had were abnormal front tire wear early on and a blown front speaker (warranty item). Starts up quickly, even in 0F weather. I'm still on my original set of brakes, with plenty of material to go.


Favorite Features

Strong towing power yet relatively good mileage (~20mpg highway unloaded). Good steering feel, comfortable seats (can cruise for 12 hours without getting tired), space for everyone and their gear. Relatively quite engine compared to others that year. Engine braking using tow/haul mode is great.


Suggested Improvements

Better turning radius (crew cab + long bed = very wide turns). 4x4 mode is a little coarse. More aggressive looking factory tire options (factory look too small for the wheel well). Power towing mirros (avail. now?). Steering wheel radio controls (avail now). Heads up display.

Review

This truck rides so rough and is worthless for a long trip that would take more than 2hrs....Overall it has all the power anyone could ask for the 4WD performs great. It's a typical Chevy though, lots of rattles, and typical poor workmanship for chevy in the cabin. I'll buy a Ford next time! Oh and I almost forgot to mention TERRIBLE gas mileage. I get 10mpg on average! It kills my pocketbook for $1.90/gallon when I fill up.


Favorite Features

4WD, POWER, Looks


Suggested Improvements

Soften suspension, Gas Mileage!

Review

The first several months I would come home at night and tell my wife "I love my truck". She owns a 2000 Yukon, but we feel so much more secure and sit higher, so we use the truck more. I've towed a heavy construction trailer with a tractor and the rear bumper barely dropped. The rental shop was impressed. Also tow a 30 ft 9000 lb travel trailer with ease. My 6'6" and 400 lb son fits in the back seat only way


Favorite Features

Engine power, LT interior comfort, towing button on shift lever, and exterior appearance


Suggested Improvements

Telescoping side rearview mirrors, Better gas mileage. Best was 14 driving 55-60. Worst was 8.3 pulling 30 ft, 9000 lb trailer, cruise set at 75. Large turning radius
