1996 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 - Pros and COns

List doesn’t mention K1500 . Question is why I can’t find anything online about this version of the 4x4. Only the Z71. What are diffences, pro and cons?

Assuming you are asking because you want to buy one. Forget pros and cons and pay a shop to look over any used vehicle you might want to buy . That will give you a better chance of getting your moneys worth. .

What do you mean you can’t find anything online?? Don’t call it a K1500, call it a '96 Silverado 1500 4x4 and you will get hits galore.

And at this point, any 23 year old truck is not going to matter what option packages it has. If it still runs and looks halfway decent is a huge plus.

Z71 was a rather highly optioned 4x4 trim line

I’m guessing you have a more basic 4x4, with less bells and whistles
