2001 GMC Sierra 2500HD 4dr Extended Cab SLT 4WD LB w/OnStar (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This is by far the greatest and most comfortable truck ever made. And if power and performance are what you want then this is the truck for you. The only trouble I had was with the injectors and luckily they were covered by the LB7's extended 7year/200,000mile warranty. Other than that I have never had trouble with this truck. Plus the aftermarket for Duramax's is so wide open to your imagination.


Best Features

The Duramax. Why would you want a gas after blowin past everyone else on the hills


Worst Features

Idler and Pitman arm. Replaced recently Cognito Motorsports makes a brace to help from having to do again.

2001 GMC Sierra 2500HD 4dr Crew Cab SLE 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

My 2001 is a real pleasure to drive, getting 15mph on highways, always used regular gasoline. It performs well in the snow and I'm sold on Allison transmissions.


Best Features

Shortbed is easy to park. Tow package makes towing -like you weren't!


Worst Features

Two complaints: The release for the emergency brake is too low to reach, and all but the driver's seatbelts lock up if you move forward and you have to open the belt and reconnect it -over and over. (I also wish the rear seat cup holders were deeper.)

2001 GMC Sierra 2500HD 4dr Crew Cab SLT 4WD SB w/OnStar (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Best vehicle I have ever owned. Still smooth and powerful after 150,000 absolutly trouble free miles. Ford and Dodge probably have as good an engine, but no way can they match the Allison/Duramax as a package. I used to trade trucks every year, but I still enjoy this one so much I want to see just how long it will go.


Best Features

The braking system on the Allison is great. Comfort of the SLT leather interior and the ABS is the best I have ever used.


Worst Features

Fuel filter is a little tricky. Seem to have a slight bit of bump steer. Mirrors hold a lot of water that blows down the side after leaving the car wash.

Review

I bought the Duramax, had a 2001 f250
figured I'd try it. Man let me tell
you, quite as a mouse compared to
Dodge and Ford and the power surprised
me. the leather is no comparison to
Fords, (does Dodge have leather?) When
we moved from W. Colorado to Central
TX I pulled a trailer ( over 8,000
lbs) over those mountians not even
much strain, fact had to wait for the
Ryder at the top, but no surprise
there. My wife wants one now,
the ride is like a good sedan and Im
not kidding its that good, my fuel
varies between 20 - 21 mpg our Ford
around 16mpg 4 people who have driven
my truck bought one, best vehicle I've
ever had.


Best Features

Comfort is awsome, best leather, powerful motor, drives like a car, smooth as silk good radio/cd/tape, fuel economy, to me best physical look on the market.


Worst Features

heavier foot rails. The fuel filter could be better placed.(like the pump though) better quality tannau cover rails. free replacement truck for my ford

2001 GMC Sierra 2500HD 4dr Extended Cab SLE 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 5M)


Review

The 6.0 engine knocks a little until
warm...other than that it's ok. Lacks
real pulling power, even with a 410
rear end. Tranny went out at 9700 miles.
Power window regulator at 37000 miles
($500), Rotors now acting up at 47000
(all of a sudden??)

Pampered truck. Goes to FL with a light
trailer and back annually, othewise no
strain. Hauls nothing. Looks like the
8.1 and the Allison was the way to go.

Ride was real choppy from day one. I
mean bouncey on an uneven road! Hang on
in the rear seat! GM should be able to
do MUCH better than this.

They say every HD truck is made for
200K...at what expense?


Best Features

Comfortable interior


Worst Features

Get the engine knock out and some reliability in the transmission. Ride needs work also.
