What's the Difference Between LT & LTZ?

2021 Chevrolet Trucks


If you’re shopping for a new Chevy vehicle, you might be curious about the brand’s LT and LTZ packages. What do these packages mean for models like the new Chevrolet Silverado and Silverado HD? They basically just denote the standard features that are included on the model. Below, we compare Chevy LT vs. LTZ, so you can decide which package makes more sense for your Portage drives. 

What Is the Chevy LT Package?

“LT” stands for Luxury Touring. Price-wise, LT Chevrolet models are more cost-effective than LTZ, because they include fewer high-end features. Generally, LT models have features like cloth seating and body-color door handles, whereas the LTZ models get leather upholstery and chrome door handles. 

Additionally, there are some differences between the LT and LTZ packages in terms of engine power. For example, the most powerful engine available for the Chevy Silverado 1500 LT is a 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine that generates 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. The Silverado 1500 LTZ gets this engine as standard. 

What Is the Chevy LTZ Package?

“LTZ” is an acronym for Luxury Touring Z. LTZ packages cost more than the LT packages, because you’ll get an even wider selection of standard features. Amenities like heated power mirrors, a power up/down tailgate, and LED fog lamps are standard. There’s also an LTZ Plus Package, which includes the following plus a Safety Package: 

  • Bucket seats
  • Center console
  • Heated and ventilated front seats
  • Rear sliding power window
  • Universal Home Remote
  • 2 USB ports with auxiliary input
  • Front and Rear Park Assist (Safety Package) 
  • Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert (Safety Package) 
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert (Safety Package)

Chevy LT vs. LTZ: Which Should You Choose? 

Both packages have a lot to offer! If you want plenty of upscale features, the LTZ delivers with its standard packages, leather seating, and more. The LT doesn’t skimp on features either, but if you want a truly luxurious and comfortable ride, you’ll find more to enjoy inside the cabin of an LTZ model. 

Another point to consider is performance. The Silverado 1500 LTZ comes standard with the 355-hp 5.3L engine, but that’s the only engine it offers. The LT is available with that engine as well as others. The Silverado HD LT and LTZ packages come standard with the same engine: a 6.6L V8 engine that generates 401 hp and 464 lb-ft of torque. So, you really can’t lose as far as power goes.
