A Short History of Chevy Trucks

It all started over 100 years ago with a simple idea to fit a car chassis with a hand-built bed to better transport larger materials. It was this fabrication that began the truck movement. Since then, millions and millions of Chevrolet pickups have blended into our culture and become a part of our everyday lives. You see Chevy trucks tackling the most challenging jobs in farmer’s fields and worksites. You see them carrying family members to vacation destinations and across town for grocery shopping. You see them flying around trails and even just on your morning commute. Chevy trucks are everywhere now.

Chevrolet’s Light Delivery, first pieced together in 1918, was just a chassis and cowl with upgraded springs to support more weight. Chevy’s entry into the truck market began with two four-cylinder models and provided an economical way for small businesses to make deliveries. However, Chevy sold the truck as a chassis only, meaning the customer had to install the truck cab and body.

Chevy did what nobody else had done before. The release of the Light Delivery Truck in 1929 included an overhead-valve V6, and it was advertised as “six for the price of four.” The OHV engine was an immediate hit. The engine had cast-iron pistons and boasted 46 horsepower. By 1931, the Independent Series trucks were available in four body styles.

Advance Design pickups were introduced in 1947 and saw a completely new look with fresh features. The cab was bigger and wider and now able to seat three comfortably. Comfort features were added, including a defroster system, corner windows, a fresh-air heater, and an in-dash radio. The six-cylinder engine produced 90 horsepower.

The Advance Design era ended in 1955, and the Task-Force trucks began their generation. These trucks would see the introduction of the wraparound windshield and V8 engine. The exterior included hidden running boards, an egg-crate grille, and redesigned headlights.

Beginning in 1960, Chevy trucks became more of what we see today. The Chevy C10 was introduced, as was the C/K series, with popular body styles like the Stepside and the Fleetside. IN 1982, the Chevy S10 was introduced; it was a compact truck and close cousin of the Chevy Colorado. In 1999, the Silverado replaced the C/K line and would quickly rise to the top in truck sales. The mighty Chevy Silverado came from a humble and straightforward beginning over 100 years ago.

Find a Used or CPO Chevy Silverado or Colorado Right Here

Here’s the deal; you are in the market for a truck, but you aren’t sure which model you want or whether you want it to be used or Certified Pre-Owned (CPO). We are happy to help. While all the options are excellent choices, one might appeal more to you. Here are a few details that might sway you one way or another.

First, let's look at used vs CPO. A regular used model is great if you want a Silverado or Colorado at a great price. These vehicles are still in excellent condition and have a lot of life left in them. However, if you want a truck that has passed a rigorous inspection and comes backed by warranties, then you should look at a CPO model. Now, do you choose the Silverado or Colorado?

You should already know that the Chevy Colorado is a midsize truck that is both affordable and reliable. Chevy decided to revive the model after becoming clear that not all drivers are seeking a full-size truck. There are several reasons to choose a midsize truck, including fuel efficiency, affordability, and the fact they are easier to park in tight spots. But the Colorado is more than a truck for everyday use, and it holds its own in towing and payload capacities.

It also comes with the safety features you desire to help keep you and your family safe. And because there are so many trims and options, finding the right Colorado is not a difficult task. While the lower tier trims are temping, the higher trim levels will have you re-thinking which features you want in a truck. Not all automakers give you so many trim choices, options, and engine choices - there is even a diesel option. The Chevy Colorado does an excellent job balancing style and utility.

There are several obvious reasons to choose a Chevy Silverado as your next truck. After all, who wouldn’t want a full-size truck that is dependable, reliable, and loaded with great features. Other prominent reasons to choose the Silverado include styling, performance, and capabilities.

The Silverado is a legendary truck known for its longevity, which means that even buying a used model means years of reliable service. But don’t just take our word for it; the Silverado gets awards for its reliability year in and year out. If you need a work truck that gets the most demanding jobs done and is built to stand weather and time, the Silverado is an easy choice.

When it comes to shopping for a pickup truck, choices are your best ally. In addition to several intriguing trim levels and options, the Silverado has several powertrain options as well. This means you are the one who chooses how much power and capability your truck should have. Year after year, the Chevy Silverado is at the top of the list when comparing towing and payload capacities. To say that the Silverado is a handsome truck with muscular styling is not an overstatement. The Silverado has long been considered one of the best-looking and stylish trucks on the road.
