Review of the 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

  • Chevrolet makes a pretty good pick-'em-up if powerful engines are your thing. But they've got a ways to go to match the Ford F-250 Super Duty when it comes to the quality of the materials and overall craftsmanship.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Class-leading engines and hauling capacity, roomy interior, superior brakes.

  • Cons

    Spotty build quality, cheap interior materials.

  • What's New for 2002

    After undergoing a full redesign last year, Chevrolet's heavy-duty three-quarter-ton truck gets few changes for 2002. Air conditioning is now standard on all trim levels along with extendable sunshade visors and improved base model radios.

Ole faithful

Vehicle: 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 4dr Crew Cab LS 4WD LB (6.0L 8cyl 5M)

I bought the truck new as it came off the transport truck, seriously. This truck has done anything I have asked of it and is still going strong. Other than normal maintenance, I have had it in the shop for a fused transmission sensor. That is it. Averaging 17 mpg in town, 25 on the highway, and 17 when pulling 13000 camper I cannot complain about that at all. With a truck this size, that is great. I see me running this truck probably til I die. It is that good a truck.




Great truck

Bought used with minor frame damage and had it fixed. Runs & handles great. Can't believe the great gas mileage for such a heavy truck and the power when you need it. Already ran truck on straight, clean vegetable oil and will now set up to use waste vegetable oil. Love this truck!




Great ride

Great ride and handling. Is an excelent vehicle in snow even though it is only two wheel drive. One of the few vehicle I have driven that is still comfortable after 12 hours of steady driving.




Chevy lemon

to many problems for a new vehicle in this day and age. the 2500 hd pick up truck that i purchased had a cracked oil pan, the rear end leaks, all door locks have fallen off on the inside of truck, leaf spring pads have fallen out, the left rear door on the crew cab does not open, and when it rains the truck jerks back and fourth like the transmission is going to fall out. chevy has had a very poor response to all the problems i had with this truck. It's one big lemon and its my problem because i purchased the truck. my company owns six other chevys trucks but this will most likely be my last purchase of a new chevy truck.




The real king of the

This is the real deal when it comes to working trucks. It can haul serious heavy loads as well as run like the wind. It does all of this in a Cadillac comfort zone. Keep up the pace Chevy, the'll never catch you..

I've got a 2002 2500HD 4X4 that has pulled, fairly hard, to the left since new. At 500 miles, I called the dealer, "You have to wait until 3,000 miles before we can look at it." OK, at 1,?...
