I'm researching used trucks and was curious what year the auto climate control was introduced? Also, was it introduced into the Chevys and GMCs in the same year?

The 02's with the LT package did for sure, and possibly 01's had Auto climate control but there was not a digital readout
When you say there was not a digital readout, what did the dash look like? Does it look similar to the 3 manual knobs (fan, temp, and vent settings)?
Better yet, can someone tell me how to positively identify whether a truck has auto temp control on it when looking at a picture of the dash? Is it distinctly different than the 3 manual control knobs?
Thanks for the feedback and the pics! That's exactly what I needed to see.

Do the earlier (2001-2002) auto climate controls seem to function as well as the newer digital ones?
