2000 Chevrolet T10 Review

Rides like a car; feels like a truck.

Reviewed by Automotive on

Overview

The Chevrolet T-10 is a four-wheel-drive midsize pickup. The T-10 rides like a car without sacrificing its usefulness as the kind of tough and durable workhorse machine that buyers want in a pickup truck. Chevrolet has wisely been careful to avoid making the car too carlike for the typical pickup truck enthusiast. It has, however, strategically added sporty packaging to the T-10 that directly appeals to younger buyers. So while Chevy has remained loyal to the base consumer that has been buying its pickup trucks for years and is also taking the necessary steps to lure in those who have never bought a pickup truck before. It has also succeeded in keeping the T-10 affordable in a competitive market.

The Range

Body Styles: pickup truck
Engines: 4.3-liter V-6, 2.2-liter I-4
Transmissions: four-speed automatic, five-speed manual
Models: Chevrolet T-10 Regular Cab, Chevrolet T-10 Extended Cab, Chevrolet T-10 Blazer SUV

What's New

The 2000 Chevrolet T-10 has taken steps to enhance both durability and performance. The engines, exhaust system, and manual transmission have all been upgraded. Extended cab models are now available with a base trim for 2000.

Exterior

Chevy’s T-10 rides on a 191-inch wheelbase. A regular cab’s cargo bed can be anywhere from six feet to seven and a half feet long. The extended cab’s cargo bed is six feet. The T-10 comes standard with front and rear black bumpers, adjustable driver and passenger side external black mirrors, conventional lens halogen bulb headlamps, heat reflective glass, a straight side pickup bed, rear step, fixed rear window, trailer towing preparation, and variable intermittent windshield wipers.

Interior

The T-10 can accommodate between two to five people, depending on buyer budget and styling choice. The interior seats are comfortable and can be configured with varied layouts. The front of the T-10 can host the choice of two bucket seats, a three place bench seat, or a split bench with a folding center armrest. Larger adults may find the three place bench seat to be a bit cramped for three people. The extended cab T-10 model has two optional folding rear jump seats but the optional third door will delete one driver side seat. The rear jump seats are surprisingly comfortable on short road trips. The extended cab in general is a wise choice for anyone that needs to maximize cargo capacity, even if rear jump seats are not desired. Gauges and controls are logically placed, both easy to read or reach. Be forewarned that the interior regrettably has cheap plastic parts.

Performance & Handling

The T-10’s ride provides a smooth ride that is void of cabin noise. The four-cylinder engine may struggle a bit. It’s a matter of the buyer choosing between power and better gas mileage. The V-6 engine packs a punch and can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in roughly 10 seconds.

Safety

A four-wheel anti-lock braking system is standard with the T-10. There is no NHTSA crash test data available for the 2000 Chevrolet T-10.

EPA Fuel Economy

Chevrolet T-10 with 2.2-liter I-4 : 23/29 mpg city/highway
Chevrolet T-10 with 4.4-liter V-6: 17/22 mpg city/highway
