2001 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 4dr Extended Cab LT 2WD SB w/OnStar (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


This truck has the power! Power to perform the work (towing & haouling), and power to play. Can't believe a 6700 lb truck drives like a corvette. It is easy to increase the base 300hp to over 90 rwhp with as little as an $800 module and 5 minutes of time. Never knew that diesel motors were so easy to make horsepower. Smoth firm ride. Great highway ride. Gas milage is out of this world with 17-20 mpg depending on driving habits and type driving. GM has a winner! I've no problems outside of a leak in the windshield and the inside passenger door lock coming loose. These were fixed under warranty without incident.

Best Features

Diesel Motor does the work. Allison trans smoothest I've ever had in a truck. Big back seat for an extended cab, lots of room. 4wd selector works a touch of a button. Got to love that OnStar feature. I use it all the time, It's great!

Worst Features

Most of any improvements have been put into the 2003 model. Stereo controls on the steering wheel. Leather seating surfaces on 60/40 bench seat. Get rid of the cassette deck. Allow for larger wheels and tires (245 X 16 are too small). Get some real fog lamps.
