2001 Chevrolet Tracker news, pictures, and information
2001 CHEVROLET TRACKER: A WHOLE LOT OF TRUCK - FOR THE MONEYChevrolet Tracker is forging a new trail wîth all-new LT 4-door and ZR2 models (available late Fall) wîth a standard V6 engine for 2001. Available in two-door convertible or four-door hardtop versions, and in two- or four-wheel drive configurations, the Tracker is a whole lot of truck for not a lot of money.
Chevrolet Tracker has changed the way a new generation of customers think about sport utility, performance, capabilities, value and style.
'Our customers buy Tracker because it's the right size for them,' said Margaret Brooks, Tracker brand manager. 'They want it all in a package that reflects their active lifestyles wîth an eye toward value. Versatile, durable and affordable, the Tracker's exceptional fuel economy keeps its owners happy at the pumps.'
NEW FOR 2001

The big news for 2001 is the addition of two models. The ZR2 is a sportier version of Tracker wîth equipment upgrades like standard power windows and mirrors, along wîth wheels, tires and wheel flares that give the ZR2 a rugged stance. The LT adds top-of-the-line features, including chrome exterior accents optional leather seating surfaces.
Powering both the LT and ZR2 is the new-for-2001, 2.5-liter DOHC 24-valve V6 engine that generates 155 peak horsepower. Standard on the base Tracker is the lively 127-horsepower, 2.0-liter 16-valve DOHC four-cylinder engine, while the 1.6-liter engine has been discontinued.
On the outside, the Tracker's sculpted flanks and contoured edges are bold and distinctive. And for 2001, Tracker comes in a slew of great colors including a freshly enhanced White and Silver Metallic wîth new clearcoat protection. A new vinyl spare tire cover features an easy to operate zipper, and Tracker's easy-to-open convertible top is the answer to every sun-worshiper's prayers.
For 2001, both two- and four-door Chevy Trackers boast an impressive level of standard features such as improved air conditioning and an AM/FM stereo wîth cassette. The Tracker's generously appointed and spacious interior remains, so there's plenty of room for friends and their gear. And there's storage everywhere, in the instrument panel, the seat backs, door pockets and center console.
The rear compartment of the two-door model comfortably accommodates full-size adults. The rear seats can be folded and stowed away for even more room. An optional rear lockable storage compartment is perfect for locking valuables and can be removed to provide maximum cargo space.
Tracker's confident road manners are the result of a more precise power rack-and-pinion §teering. Its highly responsive rear suspension features a five-link design to provide exceptional road feel and a greater tread width for sure-footed control and cornering. Únlike many of its competitors, the Tracker features a rugged full-length ladder-type frame just as larger Chevrolet sport utilities. The frame offers superior strength to absorb punishment so occupants don't.
'Don't let the Tracker's small stature fool you. This is an authentic sport utility that can handle the roughest terrain,' said Brooks. 'Why? Because it has a true truck frame. And the Tracker 4x4's shift-on-the-fly, four-wheel-drive system is a powerful defense against the unexpected, on or off the road. It's one tough truck that's easy to own and a whole lot of fun to drive.'
Brand IdentityThe Chevrolet Tracker is the small sport utility wîth authentic Chevy Truck durability. This tough and durable Chevy Truck is designed for unpretentious, self-reliant and down-to-earth individuals seeking day-to-day fun and dependability from their sport utility.

The 4WD, 2-door, convertible version was seen by many buyers as a less-expensive alternative to the Jeep Wrangler. By 1997 a four-door, four-wheel drive hardtop version was introduced.
Power was supplied from a 1.6-liter SOHC engine, later changed to a 2-liter engine in 2003. A manual gearbox was standard while the automatic was standard. A two-wheel drive version became available in 1991.
In 2004 production ceased for the Chevrolet Tracker. It was replaced with the Equinox.
