The 2001 Chevrolet Astro LS AWD is the all-wheel drive option on the Chevy LS van. Other than the AWD's superior handling in snow or bad conditions and its corresponding heavier weight, larger turning radius, and lesser towing capability than its 2WD equivalent, the AWD is the same vehicle.
Limited slip differential was standard in the Chevy Astro LS AWD (it was an option in prior years).
Chevy Astro LS AWD owners said the van is comfortable and roomy and pleasantly car-like to handle, but many experienced mechanical problems; brakes often need frequent replacing.

In 2001, the LS became the base model Astro, no longer the midgrade between base model (STD) and luxury (LT). However, the Astro LS retained its bells and whistles.
Chevrolet's 2001 upgrades for the Astro LS included a premium audio system, an anti-theft alarm system, and light-sensitive headlights that automatically turned on when needed, among other features.
In 2001, Chevrolet added leather seates, audio controls for passengers in the rear, and a locking rear differential as some of its options for the Astro LS.
2001 Chevy Astro LS drivers say they love its versatility, spaciousness, and comfort, but some drivers say many items on the interior are cheaply made and that the van is in the shop too often for problems with the rear suspension, fuel pump, brakes, and other parts. Some people complain that the ventilation system is difficult to adjust.

Chevrolet's 2001 Astro LT AWD is the same as the two-wheel drive (2WD) Astro LT, except that the all-wheel drive version navigates rough or snowy roads better, and is heavier and thus gets poorer gas mileage. Standard features, options, and most consumer reviews are the same as for the 2001 Astro LT 2WD.

The 2001 Astro LT is the luxury model of Chevrolet's mini-van, a powerful, 190-hp truck engine and frame masquerading as a passenger van. Front and rear air conditioning, ABS on all four wheels, a roof rack, and daytime running lights are a few of the standard features. Options include a camper/towing package, leather seats, and running boards.
Owner reviews indicate that the 2001 Chevrolet Astro LT is hailed for its comfort/practicality blend; it can haul many people and things comfortably. However, it has its share of mechanical trouble (brakes, fuel pump, rear suspension). Lack of foot room for the driver is also a common complaint.
