Chevrolet Truck Lineup Turns 100

Chevrolet Truck Lineup Turns 100

Chevy has been around for a long time; that’s part of why it’s such a celebrated and integral part of American culture. But while iconic nameplates like the Camaro and Corvette have only been around since muscle cars had their heyday, the Chevrolet truck lineup – particularly the original Silverado and Suburban SUV, which uses a pickup truck platform – grew up with the American auto industry. The 2018 model year marks 100 years of the Silverado and Suburban nameplates, and Chevy is honoring them with anniversary special editions.

To celebrate the century-long spot Chevy truck have held in their model lineup, Chevrolet released the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado and Colorado Centennial Editions. They are only offered with the off-road ZL1 package, with additional extras like a special “Centennial Blue” paint color and bow-tie emblems on their grilles, front doors, and tailgates. Both models also feature 100-year badges prominently displayed.

Pricing has not yet been released for the Centennial Editions in the Chevrolet truck lineup, but their unveiling is kicking off at the Lone Star State gala at the Texas State Fair. Chevy has also stated that the Silverado and Colorado will be involved in some addition anniversary-related festivities over the next few months.

At DeLillo Chevrolet, we are proud to be part of such a long-standing legacy, and we can’t wait to see what’s to come with the Chevrolet truck lineup.
