2001 Chevrolet Astro news, pictures, and information
2001 CHEVROLET ASTRO: NOT YOUR EVERYDAY MINIVANNo minivan on the market can match the Chevrolet Astro when it comes to cargo capacity, trailering capability and comfortable eight-passenger seating. For 2001, Astro offers the very best capabilities of a Chevy Truck, the most dependable, longest-lasting trucks on the road. 'Whether you're shuttling the kids around town or towing the boat to the lake, the Astro is not your everyday minivan,' says Astro Brand Manager John Gaydash. 'In addition to its incomparable roominess and ride, Astro's standard Vortec 4300 V6, four-wheel antilock brakes and available All- Wheel-Drive make this Chevy Truck a dependable member of the family.'
NEW FOR 2001
For 2001, Astro's rugged, yet contemporary styling is highlighted by two all-new colors: Light Pewter Metallic and Dark Carmine Red Metallic. On the inside, Astro offers a choice of two feature-packed interior trim levels.
The popular Astro LS package is ordered on the majority of Astros. It provides buyers wîth a 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.
The up-level Astro LT can include available luxurious leather seating surfaces, high-back reclining seats and a leather-wrapped §teering wheel.
For 2001, Astro receives a new alternator rated at 105 amps to provide plenty of clean power to two covered outlets located in the front console for cell phones or laptop computers and one in the cargo area for a TV at tailgate events.
Chevrolet Astro features the largest displacement V6 engine in its class for plenty of muscle to tow and pass wîth ease, compliments of its standard 190 horsepower Vortec 4300 V6 engine.
Thanks to a new powertrain control module, engine performance has been enhanced. Because Chevrolet is committed to protecting the environment, Astro offers Onboard Refueling Vapor Recovery (ORVR) compliance as well as a National Low Emissions Vehicle (NLEV) system for 2001.
Astro's powerful and efficient powerplant, rear-wheel-drive configuration and 3.73:1 rear axle ratio combine to tow as much as 5,500 pounds, more than any front-wheel-drive minivan on the market
(up to 5,900 pounds on cargo model). Astro's available Dutch Doors provide easy access to more than 170 cu. ft. of cargo space. No other compact van offers more.
Chevrolet Astro's reputation as a premiere people-mover is underscored by an extensive list of safety and security features including: standard driver and front passenger air bags, child security sliding door, a lockout provision that prevents the driver door from locking if the key is inadvertently left in the ignition and an optional remote keyless entry system. Also, the All-Wheel-Drive option provides additional traction in inclement weather.From family transportation to heavy cargo hauling, Astro is the hardest working minivan on the job. Exactly what customers have come to expect from Chevrolet Trucks.Source - Chevrolet
