Thread: 1500 hd ?

  1. #1

    Default 1500 hd ?

    I know Chevy used to make a 1500 HD, did they get rid of the HD option for the 1500 ? If so what year ? and what was the difference between the HD model and the regular 1500?

    2001-2002?? They came with the 5.3L but had 6lug wheels, and they were a crew cab, rather than an extended cab. They are basically of 2500 and 1500 parts.

    The 1500HD was from about '01-'03 or '04. It is/was a light duty 3/4 ton from what I understand. It had the 6.0L, 4spd tranny, not sure of rear gears. It was a crew cab, standard 6.5ft box (not sure if the long box was availabe, but don't think so). Able to tow as I have read on another site about 11k lbs.

    Standard 1500 was only a reg or extended cab truck. Tow rating of about 9k lbs IF I remember correctly, 5.3, 4spd, 4.10 gears.

    I just went on Chevy's website and had a live chat with them and they said they no longer have a 1500HD. Not in 2010 or 2011. I forgot to ask when was the last year.

    I didn't realize that. Looks like your right. I just see newer ones on the road and assumed they did. Mines an 02, so I guess they seem brand new. Its a great truck. They should have kept them.
