Fast Facts:
  • The “K” designation refers to the 4×4 model (“C” refers to 2WD). Equipped with the 5.7L Vortec, the 4×4 has a towing capacity of 7,000 lbs
  • The term “stepside” (or “Sportside”, as it states on the dealer sticker) refers to a cargo bed with inner “steps” fore and aft the rear wheel well, resulting in a “flared” look. It also meant the bed had no intrusions from either side wheel well
  • Signature traits of all Vortec engines include: sequential fuel injection, optimally designed intake runners and ports for maximum airflow, and a “fast burn” combustion chamber design that swirls the air/fuel mixture together for a more efficient burn
  • Two 6.5L diesel options were available, but these engines (along with the previous 6.2L) didn’t give GM the best reputation for diesels (these were before the Duramax was introduced in 2000)
  • Plagued with issues (mostly the 6.2L), common problems include cracking of the main bearing web and cylinder heads, crankshaft failure due to the harmonic balancer, overheating pump mounted driver (PMD), and an oil cooler line failure (these early lines were held together by a “C” clip at the engine block. When the clip fails, the engine loses its oil and seizes. There was no low oil pressure cutoff switch)
Key Model Year Changes:
  • Final year of this body style
  • Updated steering wheel
  • First year of the Passlock theft deterrent system. Truck will shutoff after startup if the correct key isn’t used, and the computer prevents it from starting for 10 minutes
  • 4L60e transmission now features a new two-piece case to reduce vibration
  • Both the 4L60e and 4L80e receive an electronically controlled torque converter clutch, as well as electronic line pressure software to adjust hydraulic pressure to the transmission on the fly. This improves shift feel
  • New lighter front half shafts (4×4) are much easier to remove/install
  • Pewter, Indigo Blue, and Copper metallic paint replace Stellar blue paint
  • New “low rolling resistance” tires improve fuel economy without sacrificing ride
