Chevy has been a leading American truck maker for decades and still holds its place at the top of the market for pickup sales.
And they continue to show off their chops in the truck design arena. This year they’re ahead of the game again with the release of the first new mid-size pickup in some time.
It’s not difficult to see where Chevy’s prowess in the pickup arena comes from. They’ve always brought the best to their customers from the early days of design.
That’s why so many people head to their local Chevy dealership when they need performance and dependability. Here’s a look at five of the best trucks Chevy has ever released.
1959 El Camino
Okay, so the El Camino might not have been for everyone, but it was a genius move when it came to bringing something entirely new to American drivers.
Its flashy design and unique functionality took the idea of a pickup to a different realm. Fins and all, this Chevy is a classic.
As a member of the second generation of C-10s, this pickup brought a lot to the table. It had updated styling and a more comfortable feel to send the message that trucks didn’t have to be solely for work.
With many people hitting the road for vacation and exploring national parks, the C-10 became a popular option for packing up cargo and towing.
The Suburban was, and still remains, the perfect solution for overcrowded families. It appeared on the scene in the 1970s with a more spacious cabin feel that could accommodate up to nine people.
Its four-door setup added a ton of convenience when it came to choreographing back seat passengers. It was simply the bigger, better station wagon.
Now here’s a game-changer. When the Silverado took the stage in 1999, the truck landscape changed drastically. The Silverado presented a much more cultivated image of what a pickup could be like.
It made its mark by boasting impressive tow ratings and superior convenience compared to trucks of previous generations.
Chevy’s latest, the Colorado, has already seen lots of 5-star reviews and is predicted to be one of the most sought after truck options in 2015.
This fresh entry is an insightful solution to the fuel conservation issue. And it also gives consumers lots of practicality even if they don’t need to haul super heavy loads every day.
