Used Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Z71 for Sale
About the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Z71
If you're shopping for a full-size pickup truck that's powerful enough to help you tackle your everyday projects, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has you covered. And if you're looking for a full-size pickup that also boasts some indulgences inside the cabin, the LT Z71 trim could be a great choice.
Specifically, the Z71 sub trim was offered during the Silverado 1500's third generation of production from 2014 through 2018. When the truck was sold new, the Z71 distinction could be added to the LT and LTZ trims, yielding off-roading equipment such as hill-descent control and recovery hooks on the 2014 model specifically.
Under the hood, a capable 4.3L V6 engine at 285 hp was standard on every Silverado 1500 LT Z71 trim. This engine is paired to a six-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive, though four-wheel drive was optional. Also available as an upgrade was an even more powerful 5.3L V8 engine at a whopping 355 hp, so you may come across some used models with this powertrain installed.
Whether you go for a used model with the V6 or V8 engine, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Z71 is a capable and well-appointed pickup truck. It's also available in a wide range of cab sizes and bed lengths to suit your exact needs.
