2003 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 4dr Crew Cab LS Rwd SB (6.0L 8cyl 5M)


Review

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.


Best Features

Interior comfort, performance.


Worst Features

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.

2003 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 2dr Regular Cab Rwd LB (6.0L 8cyl 5M)


Review

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.


Best Features

performance, stick shift, exterior design


Worst Features

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)


Review

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.


Best Features

Power, the duramax & allison go together extreamly well. The captians chairs & the center console are wonderful.


Worst Features

Not to fond of the electronic gas pedal. Larger tires are definately needed.

Review

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.


Best Features

Exterior and interior styling.


Worst Features

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.
