2000 Chevrolet Silverado Owners Manual – Chevrolet’s complete-size pickup was redesigned for 1999, which year’s major alter is the inclusion of four-door versions of the extended cab.
All 1999 extended-cab Silverado and earlier 2000 models were included with two conventional front doors and a third door on the traveler side that opens up to the rear. Production of a rear-opening up fourth doorway on the driver’s side began in Dec, and all prolonged-cab models now include four doors.
GMC sells a business twin of the Silverado called the Sierra, that also gets the 4-doorway feature because of its prolonged-cab models. Silverado and Sierra were available in 1500 (fifty percent ton) and 2500 (lighting-responsibility three-quarter ton) payload rankings. General Motors’ heavy-duty 3-quarter-ton and something-ton pickups are the Chevy C/K and GMC Sierra Traditional, which is constructed from a more mature design.
For the 2001 model year, both Chevy and GMC intend to present team-cab models with four conventional doors that open toward the front side, coordinating a feature already on the rival Ford F-150.
2000 Chevrolet Silverado Exterior
Silverado is available in four sizes: normal cabs and extended taxi cabs, both with an option of 6.5- or 8-feet freight mattresses. Front side design on the Silverado suits that of the new Chevy Tahoe and Suburban sport utility vehicles, which are constructed from the same basic design. A Sportside cargo mattress with flared rear fenders is optionally available, in the position of the standard slab-sided freight bed.
The rear doorways on prolonged-cab models should not be opened unless the front side doorways are opened up first, and they must be shut before the front side doors are shut.
2000 Chevrolet Silverado Interior
Inside the cab, furniture range from simple to deluxe. Vinyl seats are standard on base models, and the fabric is optional. Natural leather furniture is regular on the LT cut level – the most costly – and optional on LS models.
Regular-cab models come with a three-location bench seat or a set of buckets. All extended-cab models have a 3-place rear seat and either a front side table that holds 3 or two buckets.
2000 Chevrolet Silverado Under the Hood
Four engines are available, beginning with a 200-hp 4.3-liter V-6 that is standard in 2-tire-drive 1500 models. Most buyers choose one of the optional V-8s: a 4.8-liter with 270 hp or a 5.3-liter with 285 horsepower. Both V-8s have 15 power more than final year’s models. The 5.3-liter V-8 is standard on 2500 models, and a 300-horsepower 6.0-liter V-8 is optionally available.
The 4-tire drive is readily available across the board, and two systems are offered. Insta-Trac enables shifting inside and out of 4WD High while moving. Autotrac sends all the capability to the rear wheels on sleek, dried out pavement and automatically exchanges capability to the front side tires as needed on slippery surfaces.
2000 Chevrolet Silverado Performance
Chevy’s full-size trucks are aggressive with the Ford F-Series and Avoid Ram in many critical areas, though Chevy’s design is more conservative and Ford currently offers team-cab models. Chevy can make four-tire anti-lock braking system standard – they are optional on the F-150 – along with its prolonged-cab models are roomier than Ford’s or Dodge’s.
