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.

I have no real complaints about the
truck. I have over 25K miles on it and
I've had no problems. The suspension
is a little stiffer than other trucks
I've owned which makes the ride a bit
choppy. When the engine is cold I do
get the "piston slap" but I have been
told that this is just the way the
engine was designed. Great Truck

The 2002 Chevrolet HD 2500 is pure
pleaseure to drive! I love the raw
power it delivers from the 6.0 engine.
The interior is roomy,and the layout of
the gauges and radio/ CD player is very
functional.The interior does not have a
inexpensive look as some reviewers
state.The paint is very nice, with no
orangepeel as with some vehicles. I
really like the body style with the
raised lines in the hood of the HD's,
and the honeycomb grill.The trucks
stance is also a plus, riding high
above the rest of the traffic on
attractive polished aluminum wheels. I
have no criticism for the Chevrolet
line of trucks.

The Duramax is very powerful, great
response machine. Great fuel economy,
average 20mpg in a crew cab 2wd. Seats
are comfortable and driving is easy,
and smooth for a 3/4 ton truck.
Negatives: Vision to the sides and rear
are limited, and cup holders not in a
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.
