Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

Vehicle Overview Tracker is Chevrolets version of the compact SUV also sold as the Suzuki Vitara/Grand Vitara. The Tracker previously came only with four-cylinder engines, but for 2001, Chevy finally gets the V-6 engine that its Japanese partner kept for itself the past two years. The V-6 powers two new models, the ZR2 and the LT.
Both the Tracker and the Vitara/Grand Vitara are built in Canada at a plant jointly owned by General Motors and Suzuki.
Exterior Tracker comes as a four-door wagon and a two-door convertible. The wagon is 163 inches long and has a 98-inch wheelbase, 11 inches longer than the convertible on both counts. The canvas top on the convertible folds manually. On both body styles, the spare tire is mounted on the tailgate, which opens to the right.
Interior The convertible seats four and the wagon holds five, but the rear seat is short of legroom on both. Cargo space expands to 34 cubic feet on the convertible and 45 on the wagon by folding the split rear seat.
Air conditioning and a cassette player are now standard on all models, and leather upholstery is a new option available only on the LT.
Under the Hood A 127-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is standard on base versions of the wagon and convertible and the ZR2 convertible. A 155-hp 2.5-liter V-6 is standard on the LT and ZR2 four-door. The four-cylinder comes with a four-speed automatic transmission or a five-speed manual , and the V-6 comes only with the automatic. Last years base engine, a 1.6-liter four-cylinder, has been dropped.
Both body styles are available with two- or four-wheel drive. Antilock brakes are optional on all models.
