About Chevrolet Silverado 2500

Available along with the Silverado 1500, Chevrolet Silverado 2500 was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company's automobile Chevrolet Division between June 1999 and 2004 as a light full-size pickup truck. Originally introduced to replace the Chevrolet C/K lineup, Silverado 2500 became a model in the Chevrolet Silverado lineup. But although sharing many features with the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, Silverado 2500 was manufactured for only one generation.
Chevrolet Silverado 2500 made its debut in 1998 as a 1999 model and was built based on the GMT800 along with the Silverado and Sierra 1500 and 2500. It was offered in three cab styles: 2-door standard/regular cab, 4-door extended can and front-hinged 4-door crew cab and three cargo beds: a 69.2-inch short box, 78.7-inch standard box and a 97.6-inch long box. And it came in trim levels including WT (Work Truck), LT, LTZ and a special edition "High Country" model. During Silverado 2500's life, it was powered by a 5.3 L V8 rated at 285 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque, a 6.0 L V8 producing 360 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque and a 4.8 L V8 making 295-302 hp. All these engines sent power through 4-speed automatic transmissions to either rear wheels or four wheels.
