One answerer's view:

No, the truck has to say z71 off road or z71 4x4 for it to actually be four wheel drive now the z71's that just say z71 on the side of the truck are not four wheel drive they have skid plates and other off road features but they are not for wheel drive!!!

Another answerer's view:

No, however vehicles produced with the Z71 package come standard with 4 wheel drive; two wheel drive as an option (rare). The Z71 package provides for higher ground clearance, skid plates & stiffer suspension for a better overall ride over rough terrain.

"Z71" is a GM "RPO" code which stands for "Regular Production Option" code. "Z71" is the RPO code for a special off-road package on select GM/Chevrolet trucks & SUVs. Features include four wheel drive and optional 2 Wheel Drive, all-terrain tires, an automatically locking rear differential, color-coded bumpers, a skid plate, special aluminum alloy wheels, and distinctive "Z71" badges applied as decals onto the rear quarter panel of vehicles with the Z71 package.

These badges are not necessarily how one differentiates a 2WD from a 4WD as they can be custom ordered to include or exclude the words "off road" or "4x4" from the Z71 badge, either OEM or aftermarket.

Clarification:The off-road package for the 2wd Chevy's are "Z66"
