Although the Chevy 350 small block is still produced in Mexico today, its last production run in the US was 2002. The funny thing is this is one engine size you will find cut across manufacturers lines being available in GM and Ford model vehicles. The K-5 Blazer was introduced this year as well.

Trim options where one thing Chevy opted to increase, otherwise, the overall look is relatively the same in ’71The looks were very slightly upgraded, the padding in the seats were increased, and some additional trim. If you wanted a FM radio in the truck, 1971 was the first year Chevy offered this option.
