2003 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 4dr Crew Cab LS Rwd SB (6.0L 8cyl 5M)
This is a great all around truck. It's
good for hauling all the family,
friends AND all their junk - in
spacious comfort, unlike an SUV, where
you get room for people OR cargo.
Performance is incredible from 6.0L V8,
real-world gas mileage varies between
12 mpg city - 15 mpg hiway. VERY roomy
& comfortable. Very well built - NO
quality or reliability issues during
1st year of ownership.
Interior comfort, performance.
OEM 245/65/16 tires are too small. I
had to upgrade to larger tires but was
limited there, as the upgraded forged
aluminum wheels are also too narrow at
6.5". Needs a light under the hood. It
would also be nice if 2500HD had
optional variable ride control, offered
ONLY on 1500s.
these really are great trucks, and
they don't have to get awful mileage.
i am averaging 14.5 in town (i never
get on the highway) with the 6.0
liter, 5 speed and 4.10 rear end.
everything is stock, but am going to
add a K&N filter and bigger tires
soon. this is my 4th chevy PU in a
row and i had 225,000 on my last one.
nothing wrong with it, just got tired
of driving it.
performance, stick shift, exterior
make a 3/4 ton single cab short bed
and put 6 speeds in all silverados
2003 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 4dr Extended Cab LS 4WD LB (6.0L 8cyl 5M)
This truck is amazing. We purchased
for farm use and I cannot believe the
ease of towing. Great for long road
trips, too. Extreamly comfortable and
a the quietest diesel I've ever heard!
Chevy out did its self with this one.
Power, the duramax & allison go
together extreamly well. The captians
chairs & the center console are
Not to fond of the electronic gas
pedal. Larger tires are definately
2003 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 4dr Crew Cab LS Rwd LB (6.0L 8cyl 5M)
My first diesel, and a great one. I am
a Hot Shot driver and travel all types
of roads and conditions all over the
country. It is my home away from home.
People come up to me whenever I stop
for fuel and start a conversation
regarding my truck. The fuel mileage is
good, 17 to 18 mpg average. The ride is
comfortable. I will purchase another
Chevy when this one wears out...many
years down the road.
Exterior and interior styling.
Driver seat not designed for short
people. The head rest pushes my head
forward & I have to make adjustments.
Very uncomfortable. Front seats do not
recline. I sometimes have to nap or
sleep in my truck in my line of work.
