I ordered mine about 13 months ago, and I'm really glad I waited for it.  4th door was made standard.  My dealer said I might as well wait to order a 2001 and get "all the new electronics".  Whether I got anything new, I'm not sure.  I think he was just trying to sell me a newer truck.  But I'm glad I ordered it.  Gave me more time to save some more money and add a couple items like the sportside bed and buskets.

I've not read that there are any extra ordinary changes for 2002.

GM's history suggests that they will stay with a winner for a while. I think they're please with design and performance. I heard somewhere that they may play with the 5.3. Any one heard about that?

My father is thinking about trading his 01 2wd Silverado for a Z71, wishes he had boughten one instead, and the dealer told him, that a new color is coming, I think a orangeish color? Not sure, and 315hp and 360ft/lbs of torque for the 6.0.  I do know that one of the years, amber DRL's will replace the clear ones.  Not sure if it's 02 though.

I sure hope that the color deletions aren't correct, because the Sunset Orange and Sunset Gold are the only two colors my Dad would get since they don't have a light blue anymore.  I really think the Sunset Orange is GM's best looking color, and it would be a mistake not to offer it.

The Trailblazer does look sharp, especially in LTZ trim.  But for the price of that, you could get one #### of a loaded Silverado/Sierra x-cab Z71 and have change for aftermarket goodies.

As for the new for '02, are the 1500HD's considered '01s or '02s??  I know they're only available as crew cab shortboxes with the 6.0L, but that might be all I really need.

Only other '02 change for the fullsizes that hasn't been mentioned is the addition of the Sierra C3 and the Avalanche.
