Many thanks for the quick and detailed reply. Interesting....and a little disappointing. Would have been nice to hear the Premier/2LZ would have had more aggressive gearing and/or sportier suspension. I have gotten a little spoiled with the 8th Gen LTZ suspension (stiffer). Sounds like the 9th Gen is all about the accessories but the platform itself remains the same.For 2019 it looks like the Premier has this over the LT: (Per Chevrolet Web Site)
Lane Departure Warning - Optional / Not Available on LT
Forward Collision Alert - Optional / Not Available on LT
Rear Cross Traffic Alert - Standard / Optional on LT
Infotainment With NAV - Standard / Optional on LT
Memory Seat - Mirror - Steering Wheel - Optional / Not Available on LT
Dual-outlet exhaust with bright tips - Standard / Not Available on LT
HID Headlamps - Standard / Not Available on LT
19" Wheel Standard, 20" Wheel Optional - LT has 18" Wheel Standard, 19" Optional
Bose® Centerpoint® surround sound audio system - Standard / Optional on LT
8-way power front passenger seat - Standard / Optional on LT
Heated Seats - Standard / Oprional on LT
Cooled Seats - Standard / Not Available on LT
Universal Home Remote - Optional / Not Available on LT
Adaptive Braking & Cruise Cruise Control - Optional / Not Available on LT
There are no differences in Engine, Transmission, Suspension, and Steering, they are all the same on Premier & LT. No Different tuning of these items across the line.
Not too sure I see the value in the $6,200.00 MSRP cost differential between the LT and Premier for nanny features (lane departure,
collision alert, adaptive braking), cooled seats, universal home remote, memory seat/mirror/steering wheel, pseudo-dual outlet exhaust, HID headlamps, and 8-way passenger power seat.
Just my impression. Thanks again.
