Chevy is known for creating some of the greatest pickup trucks available, and this legacy started over 100 years ago in 1918 when they released the One-Ton truck. Over the next 50 years, Chevy worked to refine their truck strategy, eventually landing on the legendary C/K pickup series in 1967. The C/K series was an instant success, winning over American drivers with its capabilities and reliability. The Silverado name was originally introduced as a trim level in the 1975 model year.
Chevy again revamped their pickup truck lineup in 1999, making the Silverado a stand-alone model at the forefront of the Chevy fleet. The Silverado 1500 was originally built on the GMT8 — platform with a Vortec V8 engine and again impressed thousands upon thousands of drivers as it continues to do today.
