2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette Van Styles

    Common Features

    • All trim levels of the 2001 Silhouette featured driver and front passenger doors, a sliding rear passenger door on each side and a rear lift-gate cargo door. The 2001 Silhouette drew power from a 3.4-liter V-6 coupled to a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. This engine produced 185 horsepower and 210 foot-pounds of torque and delivered an estimated 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. Each trim level sat seven passengers, split between front bucket, second row captain's chair seats and a folding third row bench that sat three.

    Safety Features

    • Standard safety features included four-wheel antilock brakes, the PASSKEY III security system, ignition disabler and panic alarm, and front- and side-impact airbags for the driver and front passenger. All three trim levels also included the OnStar emergency communication system. The GLS and Premiere both featured a stability control system that buyers could purchase as an upgrade for the GL. Oldsmobile equipped the GLS and Premiere with its Home-Link programmable garage door opener and the Premiere trim featured a rear-mounted parking camera with parking assist.

    Convenience Features

    • All three trim levels included air conditioning, cruise control, power driver's seat, power windows and doors, intermittent wipers and an AM/FM stereo with in-dash CD player. Buyers could upgrade the GL to a CD and cassette player. The GLS and Premiere levels added leather seating and included memory seating for the driver's seat, and power front passenger seat as standard. Buyers could swap out the rear bench in the GLS and Premiere for another row of captain's chairs. The Premiere trim offered driver and front passenger leather heated seats. Premiere and GLS trim Silhouettes offered a six-disc CD changer as an upgrade, and the Premiere came standard with a rear-mounted monitor and videocassette player.


    • Buyers could purchase all three trim levels in one of seven exterior colors that consisted of Silver Mist Metallic, Sand, Ruby, Onyx Black, Mocha, Indigo and Arctic White. Oldsmobile offered the GL in one of two interior color schemes -- Gray or Beige -- and added Mocha Two-Tone as an additional interior color for the GLS and Premiere. The GL model rode on 15-inch wheels that took size 215/70SR15 tires, while the GLS and Premiere sported 16-inch wheels that took size 225/60SR16 tires. All models featured power, heated side mirrors. Oldsmobile equipped the GL with manual sliding rear-passenger doors, while the GLS and Premiere came with a standard right power-sliding rear-passenger door and offered a left power-sliding door as an upgrade. Exterior highlights on all three trim levels consisted of a chrome grille, body-colored bumpers and a roof rack.
