000 CHEVY ASTRO BOASTS SAFETY AND PERFORMANCE ENHANCEMENTSSafety and performance improvements to the 2000 Chevy Astro will help make it even more popular wîth buyers in the minivan market. From its new battery-rundown protection feature to a more durable V6 engine, Astro is more refined than ever.
'In addition to performance refinements this year, we've taken a close look at what we could enhance wîth regards to Astro's already impressive list of safety and security features,' says Astro Brand Manager Dan Keller. 'Consequently, we've added several new safety and security items.'
Safety and Security Improvements Include:
Optional Remote Keyless Entry system wîth panic alarm for added security.
Lockout provision which prevents the driver door from locking if the key is inadvertently left in the ignition (requires power door locks).
Battery-rundown protection system that automatically turns off interior lamps 20 minutes after the ignition is turned off.
Automatic Exterior Lamp Control, which automatically activates the exterior lights under low-light driving conditions, is now included wîth the standard Daytime Running Lamps.
Key carryover safety and security features include standard driver and front-passenger air bags,* power front disc/rear drum brakes, child security sliding-door lock and a PASSlock® theft-deterrent system that deactivates the Astro fuel system when unauthorized attempts are made to start the vehicle.
Performance enhancements include a new plastic fuel tank wîth increased capacity for longer intervals between fuel stops. The powerful Vortec V6 engine now offers quieter operation and extended durability than the previous version. A new standard tow/haul switch improves transmission shifts when trailering or hauling, and an improved antilock brake system (ABS) controller provides increased reliability.
Comfort and Convenience Enhancements
New reminder and warning chimes alert the driver when the key is left in the ignition, the headlamps are on, the safety belt is unfastened or the turn signal remains activated. A new flash-to-pass feature alerts the driver of a vehicle in front of an attempt to pass. The new retained accessory power system allows the stereo, power windows and overhead console to be used for up to 20 minutes after the ignition has been turned off. This new feature makes it convenient for buyers to close a window or power sunroof inadvertently left open without having to re-start the engine.
Key carry-over features include comfortable eight-passenger seating, front air conditioning, interior delayed- entry lights and a choice of cloth or leather seating surfaces, depending on model.
Value and Versatility
The popular Astro LS-Astro Max offers buyers added value wîth its long list of standard features such as: chrome-cladded steel wheels, power door locks and windows, cruise control, overhead roof console, power mirrors, tilt §teering wheel, Remote Keyless Entry and more.
For extra peace of mind during hazardous road conditions, an All-Wheel-Drive Astro is available.
Also available is the Astro Cargo Van — a tough, dependable van wîth enough room for large hauling needs. In fact, no other compact cargo van can carry more than Astro.
From family transportation to heavy cargo hauling, any way you look at it, Astro is a hard-working, versatile van. Chevy Astro — minivan versatility wîth the strength and competence of a truck.
