About GMC K1500
The Off-Road Chassis Package, also known as the Z71 option, was made available for purchase on Chevrolet and GMC vehicles in the year 1989. Skid plates for the engine, front axle, and transfer case were included in the option package that was only available for K1500s. Heavy-duty Bilstein shock absorbers were also a part of the package. Identifiable by the “Z71” graphics located on the bedside and the standard aluminum-alloy wheels
The Z71 could also be combined with the Sport Equipment Package, which was available on the Cheyenne (with the exception of the W/T 1500), Scottsdale, and Silverado trim levels. After the C/K 1500 was discontinued in 2000, production of the Z71 option package for the GMT400 generation came to an end. However, Chevrolet and GMC have maintained the use of the Z71 RPO code for off-road chassis packages for each succeeding generation of full-size pickups.
The Chevrolet C/K1500 received a new exterior appearance package known as the Sport Equipment Package in the 1989 model year. The exterior was given a black grille and side mirrors, body-color bumpers, and “Sport” bedside and tailgate decals. The option package was available in monochrome black, red, or white paint. It was paired with the 612-foot Fleetside truck bed and Silverado interior trim.
The front bumper of models equipped with two-wheel drive featured a black air dam (fitted with fog lamps), and the 15-inch styled steel wheels featured chrome plating. The 4×4 versions of the Sport Equipment Package were able to be combined with the Z71 package, and they were painted exclusively in white. The “Sport” graphics were replaced by “4×4”, and the fenders received black wheel flares in keeping with the 2500/3500-series trucks.
In contrast to the higher-performing 454SS, the Sport Equipment Package was available with the 4.3 L V6 and 5.0 L V8 engines. In 1994, a 5.7 L V8 replaced the 5.0 L V8 as the standard engine size for the Sport Equipment Package. The two-wheel drive models were provided with an upgraded ZQ8 heavy-duty suspension as an available option. This upgrade featured heavy-duty shocks in addition to high-ratio steering.
The package was only available for purchase with the Fleetside bed from 1989 until 1992; beginning in 1993, Chevrolet began offering the option with the Sportside stepside bed instead. Cast-aluminum wheels have been installed in place of the chromed steel wheels that were previously used in both the two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive examples. These wheels were shared with the 454SS. The front fascia of the Sport package has been updated with a W/T 1500 grille that has been finished in the vehicle’s body color. The option package, which was previously only available for Chevrolet vehicles, is now offered for GMC Sierra 1500s. 1994 saw the introduction of Teal Green as the third exterior color, taking the place of Summit White.
The C/K model line did not include the Sport Equipment Package after the 1997 model year because it was no longer relevant.
Chevrolet introduced the 454SS as a high-performance variant of the C1500 in 1990. The 454SS, the most recent American high-performance pickup truck since the 1989 Shelby Dakota, was a 12-ton C1500 powered by a 230 hp (172 kW) 7.4 L V8.
