The Z71 and ZR2 offer more powerful suspension, more horsepower, and all the features of the base and LT models combined. This means media packages with satellite radio, navigation, adjustable power seats, leather trim, and a choice between the 2.8L Duramax Turbo-Diesel I-4 engine or the 3.6L V6 DOHC VVT engine.
