2001 Chevrolet Tracker

Our Take on the Latest Model 2001 Chevrolet Tracker

2001 Chevrolet Tracker Reviews

Vehicle Overview
Tracker is Chevrolet’s 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.

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.

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 year’s 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.
