<pre>New Chevy S-10 Crew Cab Pickup Provides Four Full-Size Doors and the Ruggedness and Versatility for Real Life Adventures
CHICAGO -- Chevrolet expanded its arsenal of hard-working compact pickups today with the introduction of the 2001 Chevy S-10 Crew Cab 4x4 Pickup, which is scheduled for start of production in the fall of this year. With its combination of versatility, ruggedness and personal comfort, the Chevy S-10 Crew Cab Pickup is ready to tackle virtually any real-life challenge or adventure.
"The Chevy S-10 Pickup in any configuration is about durability, functionality and value," said Debra Kelly-Ennis, S-10 Pickup brand manager. "With four full-size doors and seating for five, the new Chevy S-10 Crew Cab pickup takes functionality to a new dimension. It brings a new level of versatility to the Chevy S-10 family that already boasts one of the most diverse product lines in the industry."
According to Kelly-Ennis, the Chevy S-10 Crew Cab Pickupís combination of ruggedness, utility and car-like comfort will strike a chord among a variety of customers.
"The Chevy S-10 Crew Cab Pickup complements and enables virtually any active lifestyle," Kelly-Ennis said. "The sport utility customer now has a place to stow dirty cargo without fear of soiling their luxurious interior.
"S-10 owners can now have sedan amenities and comforts, but in a more rugged and versatile vehicle," she added. "Truck buyers will be drawn to S-10 Crew Cab because it offers true five-passenger comfort for their family and friends, in a vehicle thatís very maneuverable and fits easily into their garage."
Like all four-wheel drive S-10 Pickup models, the new S-10 Crew Cab is powered by the potent and proven Vortec 4300 V6 engine with 190 horsepower and 250 lb.-ft. of torque.
The new Chevy S-10 Crew Cab Pickup rides on Chevyís Z85 Increased Capacity Suspension, which provides a firm but comfortable ride. The package includes 32mm twin tube shock absorbers, a 28mm front stabilizer bar and rugged P235/70R15 on/off-road tires, with optional P235/75R15 as well.
S-10 Crew Cab Pickup offers the Insta-Trac four-wheel drive system as standard equipment. In addition to its handy push-button actuation, Insta-Trac includes a 4WD Low gear for more demanding conditions such as climbing steep grades or driving through deep snow or mud.
A standard, factory-installed cargo bedliner protects the 4-foot, 6-inch cargo bed from dents, dings and scratches often caused by loose or sliding cargo. Sturdy cargo tie-down loops, two-tier loading capability and a rear step bumper provide convenient and secure cargo loading.
Convenient interior features help provide a comfortable, car-like driving experience, with such items as an overhead console with temperature and compass readouts and delayed interior lighting, which automatically keeps the dome lamp on for 15 seconds or until the ignition is turned on after the front doors are closed. The retained accessory power feature allows the stereo, available power windows and other power features to operate for up to 20 minutes after the ignition has been turned off or until a door is opened.
"Whether theyíre hard at work or hard at play, todayís trucks are called upon to perform a variety of roles," said Kelly-Ennis. "The Chevy S-10 Crew Cab Pickup answers that call as only a Chevy can.
