Chevy Silverado History

2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 Custom Trail Boss
 

The Chevy Silverado history, from the first Chevy Silverado, has featured a wide range of heavy-duty and full-size pickups manufactured by GM. The Chevy Silverado series, along with the GMC Sierra, succeed the Chevy C/K line. Subsequent models included the GMT 800, GMT 900 generation, the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss, and more. Contact us today for more information and to arrange your test drive! 

First Generation (1999 – 2007)

The first Chevy Silverado generation included light-duty, hybrid, and heavy-duty models. The GMT 800 Silverado/Sierra 1500 and 2500 pickups came out in 1998. In 2000, even as the GMT 800 Silverado/Sierra Heavy Duty made its way on the scene, the heavy-duty GMT 400 continued production. In 2002, the design was revamped, as well as the audio controls and HVAC. In 2007, “classic” came to distinguish the first generation from the second generation. 

Second Generation (2007 – 2014)

The final quarter of 2006 brought the birth of the all-new GMT 900 generation with Silverado/Sierra models, which featured an exciting interior, exterior, frame, and suspension revamp. A few engines even enjoyed enhanced power. The second generation is also noted for the introduction of new, enhanced aerodynamics, as well as smaller panel gaps (supporting better fuel efficiency), and steeply raked windshields!

Third Generation (2014 – Present)

The latest generation in Chevy Silverado history boasts such models as the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss, The Silverado High Country edition, and many special Silverado editions. The third generation also garners its fair share of admiration for innovation technology, three gas engine options (4.3 L EcoTec3 V6, 5.3 L EcoTec3 V8, and 6.2 L EcoTec3 V8), and enhanced interior, exterior, and performance features. With such a solid history and a long line of beloved models, the sky’s the limit for the Chevy Silverado!
