The 2004 Chevy Tracker has plenty of muscle under its hood.
A strong V6 engine pumps out the juice that powers Chevrolet's
smallest sport utility vehicle, giving the adventurous model
the type of performance thrill-seekers are looking for.
For 2004, Chevrolet discards two-door Tracker models and
focuses solely on the four-door breed. While this model
shuffling is the primary change for the new season, it doesn't
detract from the agility and versatility of the ride.
The 2004 Chevrolet Tracker is offered in three models: base,
ZR2 and LT.
The four-door 2004 Chevy Tracker seats five passengers,
with enough room in the back for adults. The rear seats
can be folded and stowed for up to 44.7 cubic feet of storage
Base models still feature a comfortable set of standard
features. Air conditioning, a center console, cupholders,
an AM/FM/CD player, map lights and a rear defogger are all
The LT model throws in such features as cruise control,
cloth upholstery, power mirrors, windows and door locks
and remote keyless entry.
On the outside, the LT model has alloy wheels and a more
upscale look. ZR2 models are considered the most attitude-heavy
of the lot. All 2004 Trackers feature a hydraulic-assist,
swing-out tailgate that opens to the side, letting you easily
access the rear storage compartment.
The engine driving all three 2004 Chevrolet Tracker models
is a fuel-efficient 2.5-liter V6 with 165 horsepower at
6500 rpm and 162 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. It is mated
to a 4-speed automatic transmission.
Two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive configurations are
both available. The ZR2 is probably the most rugged of the
group, with 8 inches of ground clearance, skid plates and
a 4x4 transfer case that offers shift-on-the-fly four-wheel
drive at speeds up to 60 mph.
All Trackers benefit from a steel ladder-type frame. It
is the same frame that is found on bigger Chevy trucks,
and it helps to give the smaller Tracker many of the same
benefits that arise from structural firmness and stability.
The advantages of this solid foundation are particularly
evident in off-road adventures as well as in crash test
Safety and Security
A tough, sturdy compact SUV, the Chevy Tracker is agile
enough to avoid collisions and other dangers and solid enough
to withstand the severity of big impacts. Some of the standard
safety features include power front drum/rear disc brakes,
dual front airbags and daytime running lights. Antilock
brakes are optional.
