This fall, Chevrolet celebrates 100 years of pickup trucks here in the United States. The very first pickup that Chevy produced had wooden seats and no doors and offered just 36 horsepower. It wasn’t until 1999 that Chevrolet unveiled the Silverado to replace the C/K pickups. The Silverado has been a mainstay in the truck market ever since, joined more recently by the smaller Chevrolet Colorado.
To celebrate one hundred years of Chevy trucks, the American automaker has announced Centennial Editions for both the Silverado and Colorado. The 2018 Chevy Silverado and Colorado Centennial Editions will be sold exclusively on the Z71 models in Centennial Blue.
In addition to the historic blue color, the special edition models will feature heritage bowtie emblems as well as 100 year badges throughout the bodies and interiors.
“The Silverado and Colorado Centennial Editions are a result of collaboration between Chevrolet Design, Engineering and Marketing, to commemorate the history of Chevy Trucks,” remarked Rich Scheer, Chevrolet Trucks director of Exterior Design. “Both vehicles offer our most enthusiastic fans a way to demonstrate their love for Chevy Trucks and celebrate the Chevy Trucks Centennial with us.”
