2001 Chevrolet Venture news, pictures, and information
2001 CHEVROLET VENTURE: MORE VERSATILE, WAY MORE FUN!Chevrolet Venture is the Minivan that's fun for the whole family! No other minivan offers as many models, seating configurations and kid (and parent) pleasing features (excluding similar GM models). With its constant product improvements such as an available third row stowable seat, an available driver's side power sliding door and the new rear parking aid option, Venture keeps getting better in 2001.
'Chevrolet Venture takes the concept of dependable, versatile family transportation to a whole new level,' said Pete Langenhorst, Venture brand manager. 'We like to think of it as the minivan that helps families to do more and get the most out of life.'
By adding an available power driver's side sliding door, Venture buyers now have the availability of dual power sliding doors to easily access the spacious interior — room enough for up to eight in Chevy Venture extended wheelbase models. The seats feature a new recline lever for 2001 to make adjustments more simple. To make the conversion from people to cargo easier, new flat folding captain's chairs wîth cupholders are available in the second row, while the third row of seats can be folded flat without having to be removed.
Keeping wîth the Venture idea of allowing owners to do more, 2001 Venture has OnStar on board. Standard on all Ventures except the Value Van, OnStar provides safety and security benefits such as automatic air bag deployment notification and emergency assistance wîth remote location. That translates to help where the customer needs it, even if they don't know or can't say where they are.
Other news inside includes a new climate control (HVAC) system, which provides greater interior comfort, an instrument panel mounted cupholder and an optional in-dash six-CD changer/player. While outside, a redesigned front fascia and grille plus a new black exterior color give Chevy Venture a new appearance for 2001.
Also helpful to families is Venture's rear parking aid, new for 2001, which promotes family safety. When in reverse, an audio and video signal will alert the driver of the close proximity of an object or person. Power comes from the standard and highly dependable 3400 V6 engine wîth a four-speed automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com)
Because Venture is the minivan families have come to trust, Chevrolet has a host of safety and security features to protect 'precious cargo' on the road, including: four-wheel anti-lock brakes, driver and front-passenger air bags, standard driver and front passenger side-impact air bags, child security rear door locks and available integrated child safety seats. Daytime Running Lamps wîth automatic exterior lamp control are also standard to help other drivers see Venture day and night.
Chevrolet Venture Warner Bros. Edition

The Chevrolet Venture Warner Bros. Edition was a blockbuster hit when it premiered last year. This special edition is truly one of a kind. It comes wîth an integrated video entertainment system for the back seat passengers, and a tri-mode audio system that lets parents catch up on the news, while the kids listen to CDs or watch a video, all at the same time.
Continuing in 2001, Warner Bros. owners receive VentureTainment! — a package of special ownership benefits and privileges that translates to excellent entertainment benefits for the whole family to enjoy.
With its wide model choices and expanded flexibility in 2001, Chevrolet Venture continues to be the most versatile minivan ever.
