2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab LT 2WD SB w/out OnStar (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Great Truck. I drive a good number of miles a year and I’m very pleased with this truck. I believe that the 2WD has a much smoother ride that the Z71 (4WD), and since I have little use of the 4WD, that was an easy choice. The 5.3 L V8 has more than enough power to jump up and pass a truck on a two lane road. The heated, leather, power everything seats also are nice. I put a K&N air filter in it the first week I bought it and run Castrol Syntec 20W-50 year round. I have had no problems.


Best Features

5.3 L V8, the smooth ride and the heated leather seats


Worst Features

My only problem is that the seatbelt seems to rub the lower left side of the truck when I get it. It's almost rubbed a hole in the leather.

2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab LS 2WD SB (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

The 2WD Silverado is a great choice for
someone who needs a truck, but also
does not want the gas mileage of a 4WD
truck. I opted for the locking
differential. With a little weight in
the bed at winter time, my truck has
yet to get stuck. I love the
comfortable and smooth ride and the
power from the 5.3 liter engine. I
have been able to achieve just over 20
MPG on long distance trips which I feel
is outstanding for a truck of this
size. Go buy one - you won't regret
it.

2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab LS 4WD LB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This is one of the best trucks I have
ever owned. My wife and I also own a
Toyota Tacoma Pre-runner that wears me
out on long trips. My Z71 Silverado is
so comfortable, I believe that I could
drive it across the country and not
even be sore at the end of the trip.
The power and the 4WD has never let me
down when called upon.


Best Features

4WD


Worst Features

More leg-room in back seat.

Review

This is the best truck I ever owned.
No major problems except for air
conditioning belt, and replaced
brakes at 7,000 miles now have 52,000
miles and no problems. Captian chairs
excellent heated seat's are great in
winter time. Only problem with
interior, is the back seat does not
give enough leg room for my growing
kids.I pull a 5,000lb horse trailer in
the MT, and I cant tell it's there. I
look forward to up grading to the
2500HD crew cab on day..

If you want a good family truck get
the silverado...


Best Features

heated seats, temp in rear view mirror,sixway power seats
