About Used Chevy Silverado Trucks in Utah

The Chevrolet Silverado was renamed and redesigned in 1999. But Chevy’s philosophy is that consumers who buy trucks want something with truck styling, not SUV, sedan, or anything else. So, when this used truck got a makeover, the style of it was not radically changed. Still, it is steps ahead of its predecessor, the “C/K” truck. It stops quicker, handles better, has more power, rides better, it is faster, more and comfortable. That is a pretty drastic improvement with a vehicle that remains true to its design. This is one used truck that feels like luxury. It has four wheel disc brakes that are sufficient for the trucks power, and it comes standard with ABS. The fuel economy range for the Silverado is 20 mpg on the highway, and 16 mpg in the City. It has a basic towing capacity of 8,700 lbs. The 2001 version, adding on to its remake of 1999, adds even more power, convenience and durability. There is an extended-cab models that used truck buyers may find, which has two auxiliary rear doors. An option for the extended-cab 1500s was a Pro-Tec composite box, which is known to resist dents and corrosion. This is a nice bonus feature for a used truck. Later model Silverado trucks include OnStar. The truck was made with either two or four-wheel-drive, with standard-length and extended cabs, and with short (6-1/2-foot) and long (8-foot) bed lengths. There are three trim levels that can be found when shopping for your used truck: the base, the LS, and the LT. Full-width Fleetside beds are standard on all models, and some short beds have a stylish and retro Sportside instead. There is a variety of payload capacities that were offered on the 2001 Silverado. The ''half-ton'' range includes, both the 1500 series, with actual payloads ranging from 1593 to 2334 pounds (depending on bed, cab, and drive configuration), and the heavier-duty 2500 series with payloads in the 2612-3224-pound range. To add on to the list of options, there was also a 1500HD model with a crew cab body produced. Silverado 1500 models are available with a 4.8-liter V8, a 5.3-liter V8, and a 4.3-liter V6. Only the 2500 was powered by a 6.0-liter V8. The base truck features a five-speed manual gearbox, but more popular was the 4L60 and 4L65, which features four-speed automatics. These include a delayed up shift mode for towing, and have proven themselves to be superb transmissions. The frame on this used truck is one of the stiffest and lightest of its time. The front frame rails are hydro formed, (a process that uses high-pressure hydraulics to shape relatively large and complex components that used to be fabricated from smaller stampings). Tubular cross members and roll-formed mid-rails increase the rigidity even more. Especially good handling, ride quality, and crash safety can be attributed to this very stiff structure. This is a used truck with incredible roominess in its interior. Its doors and door openings are some of the largest in the industry. The Chevy Silverado is often considered to be among the best full size pickup trucks. It is smooth, quiet, and, even on the base model, very well equipped.
