1971 Chevrolet C10

In 1971, the Chevrolet trucks were given a new grille design. A new trim package was introduced called the Cheyenne. On the GMC models they were referred to as the Sierra. These packages were basically comfort features including a nicer interior, more padding and insulation, carpet, chrome trim, and upper and lower side molding and tailgate trim.

This was the first year for AM/FM radios factory installed. The front brakes on all light-duty trucks were switched from drums to discs. Another change was to the lug pattern, which had been a six-lug bolt pattern. The new pattern was a five-lug pattern in similar fashion to Buick, Oldsmobile, Cadillac, and Pontiac passenger cars. The 1/2 ton 4x4 trucks retained the 6 lug bolt pattern.
