CHEVY PRIZM: IMPORT-FIGHTER NICELY-EQUIPPED FOR ITS ROLE

2001 Chevrolet Prizm
For 2001, the Chevrolet Prizm will continue to offer a high level of comfort, convenience and available safety features to customers who traditionally have considered primarily import vehicles.

PRIZM CÚSTOMERS2001 Chevrolet Prizm
'The Prizm is Chevy's import-fighter in the small-sedan market,' says Margaret Brooks, Prizm brand manager. 'It is aimed primarily at smart and discriminating small sedan buyers who place a premium on high quality, reliability and safety/security issues, as well as affordable ownership. The Prizm
delivers all that in spades.'

PRIZM MODEL LINEÚP

2001 Chevrolet Prizm
The Chevrolet Prizm comes in two models, the Prizm Sedan and the uplevel Prizm LSi Sedan.
NEW FOR 2001

2001 Chevrolet Prizm
For 2001 there are just a few changes to the Prizm package. The addition of lower anchors for child restraint seats and GM's industry-first inside trunk release handle help enhance Prizm's safety reputation. One new exterior color is offered: Medium Red Metallic. The inside rearview mirror is relocated from the windshield header to a windshield-mounted position, two map lights within the rearview mirror become standard on LSi models (except when ordered with optional sunroof), and improvements have been made in the defroster system to reduce windshield fogging at startup.

PRIZM FEATÚRES

2001 Chevrolet Prizm
Both Prizm models feature a powerful 1.8L 125-hp sequentially-fuel injected aluminum engine with dual-overhead camshafts, a near-maintenance-free direct ignition system, a single serpentine accessory drive system for added smoothness, and a torque-axis engine mounting system that helps soak up vibration and noise.
A slick-shifting 5-speed manual transmission is standard on both Prizm models, and two automatic transmissions (3- or 4-speed) are options. Added to the Prizm's agile 4-wheel independent suspension, these powertrain choices provide a level of ride that is pleasing in town and on the highway — or even on twisting mountain roads. No one said a small sedan had to be dull.

High-value standard features include: the 1.8L engine, air conditioning, child-security rear door locks, rear-floor heater ducts, delayed exit/entry lighting, trip-odometer, remotely-operated trunk and fuel filler door releases, an AM/FM stereo radio, body-colored bumpers, tinted glass, body-side moldings and intermittent windshield wipers. Prizm LSi Sedan adds to that already-impressive list: cruise control, an electric rear-window defogger, power door locks, a 60/40 split rear seat with pass-through feature, tilt steering wheel, tachometer, power windows, AM/FM stereo with tape cassette and auto tone control, power-operated outside rear view mirrors and special full wheel covers. Other options such as 14-inch alloy wheels, electric-sliding sunroof, side-impact air bags for driver and front passenger, a CD-equipped AM/FM stereo and antilock brakes are available for either model.

The Chevrolet Prizm is produced at the award-winning NÚMMI plant in Fremont, California. NÚMMI is a joint venture between General Motors and Toyota, allowing best practices from both companies to be incorporated into the build process.

The Geo Prizm was produced from 1990 through 1997 available as a four-door sedan or a 5-door hatchback. It was sold by General Motors but produced by Toyota. The Geo Prizm was basically a rebadged Toyota Sprinter, which was an upscale version of the Toyota Corolla.

In 1998, the name was changed to the Chevrolet Prizm after the Geo nameplate was discontinued.
