#1 of 119 Anything New and/or Differernt
Jul 14, 2001 (5:01 pm)
I am about to order a 2002 Silverado LT 1500 and would like to know if anyone knows if there are going to be any differences from the 2001 models. The local dealer does not have any brochures or information yet(at least not any they are sharing). Any info appreciated.
#2 of 119 silverado 1/2 ton 4x4
Jul 17, 2001 (12:44 pm)
anyone know if chevy makes a full size four door 1/2 ton 4x4 with a 5 1/2 or 6 ft bed? Something to compete with F150 Supercrew.
Jul 17, 2001 (1:10 pm)
Crew cab, 4 full size doors, 6.5 foot bed. Bigger than Supercrew though. Advantage of Supercrew with short bed, it fits in the garage. 1500HD has 10,000# tow capacity too. Basically, it's the 2500 (8600 GVWR) stretched.

No major changes upcoming. Basically just some changes in options packaging, etc. Supposedly some items which have been options will be included in the base trim. Also they are changing the availability of some of the colors (not sure which ones sorry).

#6 of 119 2002 2500HD transmission pricing
Aug 18, 2001 (1:51 am)
Just curious if anyone has noticed or looked into this.
Compare the sticker and invoice pricing for the GMC Allison transmission versus the Chevy version. The GMC pricing is $1032 / $1200 (invoice / sticker) while the Chevy is $1974 / $2295. Quite a difference for the same chunk of metal, I think.
On Chevy 2001 HD models, I actually saw both pricing schemes on similarly equipped Chevrolet 2500HD crew cabs. Unfortunately they weren't on the same lot at the same time or I would have had fun with the salesman!
The bottom line is:
1)If you buy a Chevy with the higher sticker price, did you really buy two transmissions?
2)It makes the bottom line of a GMC 2500HD diesel/8.1 gas comparable, if not slightly cheaper than a similarly equipped Chevy.
Go figure. I like the styling of the Chevy better but can I find a Chevy not only with the right equipment but with the right sticker? With this difference and the generally higher resale of the GMC, the "professional grade" truck may make more cents...
#7 of 119 Trans Price
Aug 18, 2001 (6:23 am)
ON GMC The automatic trans is included
in the base price. Chevy is not.
That explains the price difference when
you go to the Allie auto....

thats really cool they are making the PYO wheels available on the SL. I don't like real fancy trucks and it always bothered me that you had to upgrade all sorts of stuff just to get the nice wheels.
#10 of 119 2002 Visor Upgrade
Aug 28, 2001 (9:58 am)
Has anyone actually seen a new 2002HD? I am particularly interested in the visor upgrade which is supposed to include slide out extensions and be larger than the 2001. Mine is scheduled for build next Tuesday and I am hoping the early 2002's include the upgrades discussed in a prior message. Thanks-
