While I was browsing at a local car dealer, I noticed something interesting on one of their vehicles. A 2013 Chevy Silverado LT. I’ve been a long-time Chevrolet fan and have loved the Silverados for years. So, my curiosity got the best of me and I had to find out what the letters LT stood for on the side of the truck. In this article, I will explain what the letters LT mean on Chevrolet cars and trucks.
What Does lt Stand for Chevy?
LT stands for Luxury Touring, and it’s one of Chevy’s most popular trim levels. The LT is available on a wide range of vehicles, including the Malibu, Cruze, Impala, and Sonic.
The LT trim level is a step up from the base model. It’s a more luxurious offering with more features and upgraded interior materials. There are no mechanical changes between the LT and the base model. The only difference is the extra features that come with it.
LT stands for Luxury Touring and comes with a lot more features as standard compared to the base model. It also has leather seats, a heated steering wheel, and dual-zone climate control as standard. The LTZ trim level gets you all of that plus an 8-inch touch screen infotainment system, Bose speakers, and a surround sound system.
What Does Chevrolet LT Pack Includes?
Since the LT Package can be found in many different models of the Chevrolet vehicles, In this article I will be looking at what the LT package includes on a Chevy Silverado specifically.
The Chevrolet LT package is a special edition that was offered on the 2019 Silverado. It was available on all trim levels, but it was only available on Crew Cab models.
The LT package includes:
- Chrome front and rear bumpers: The LT package adds chrome accents to the front and rear bumpers. These features are available on LT models with the RST appearance package.
- Body-color door handle: This feature adds body-color door handles to your truck, which makes them stand out more than black ones would. This feature is also available on LT models with the RST appearance package.
- 17-inch Bright Silver painted aluminum wheels – These wheels give off an upscale look that sets your truck apart from others in its class and price range. They’re also available on other trim levels of Silverado, but not all of them come with this wheel design. If you want something different from what comes standard, then this option may be for you!
- Tailgate with EZ lift and lower assist – this is a feature that makes opening and closing the tailgate easier for you by using an electric motor to help you open it.
- LED reflector headlamps – these are standard on the LT trim level, but not on all Silverados. They provide better visibility at night by using LED bulbs positioned in front of reflectors rather than behind them like halogen bulbs do. This results in improved light output.
- 4G LTE hotspot capability – this allows you to use your smartphone as a hotspot when you’re connected to AT&T’s cellular network while driving so that others can get online through their devices while you’re driving around town.
Which is better LT or LS?
LT is better than LS since it feels more luxurious and offers more features. The LT also has a better interior design and a better engine. LS is great if you want to save money, but if you want the best experience, LT is better.
LS comes with a standard engine, but for LT, you’ll have to pay extra for the upgraded engine. With LT, you can get an 8-speed transmission instead of 6-speed transmission.
You’ll also get some extra features like heated mirrors and leather seats in your car with this upgrade. Compared to LTS, LT gives you more luxury feel and power with its 6 cylinder motor, which gives you 300 horsepower against the 250 horsepower that comes from LTS.
Facts about Chevy LT Engine
Chevy LT engines are small block engines that were built from 1970 through 1972. These engines were made by Chevy and had a displacement of 350 cubic inches.
The first LT engines were introduced in 1970 as the L33 series, followed by the L34 and L35 series in 1971. In 1972, the LT name was dropped and replaced with the L11 series.
Small Block Engine
A small block engine is an internal combustion engine in which the cylinders are arranged in two banks or rows of multiple crankshaft bearings. The term “small” refers to both the physical size of the engine (typically around 3 liters for a V8) and its relative lack of power compared to larger high performance engines.
Made by Chevrolet
Chevrolet is one of three major divisions sold by General Motors (GM). The other two divisions are Cadillac and Buick. Chevrolets have been manufactured since 1903, when they were first built as Buicks by Ransom E. Olds at his factory in Lansing, Michigan. By 1910 they had become known as Chevrolets because they were sold under that name at Oldsmobile dealerships throughout Indiana and Ohio –
