Love the Duramax with Allison tranny
By TimofCharlotte on


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


This truck is extremely well mannered for it's size and ratings. I look for opportunities to take it out on the road and just drive, to feel the power and smoothness which it delivers. It is a premium vehicle that isn't cheap, and it's sales lag because of the price premium. If you can afford it, it's a wonderful vehicle, especially the diesel/Allison combo. It looks like GM has a winner here. Cons: If you want to jack it up, lift kits more expensive for the IFS than straight axle set-ups, but the ride is ultimately sacrificed on straight axle setups. Bose stereo option would have been nice.

Best Features

'Sleeper' diesel. It sounds so quiet and innocent, but rocks with only moderate throttle. Love to nail it. On-star is kinda cool, some neat features and more are supposedly coming. Crew cab is must have, and extremely versatile and comfortable for passengers and storing stuff.

Worst Features

Put bigger wheels and tires on the truck. The 17" LT245's that come on it look like pizza cutters with respect to the brawny nature of the rest of the truck. Take a cue from the 20" wheels Dodge uses on their line, they look great!!.
