Chevy has been making pickups since 1930, the Chevrolet Silverado was officially introduced to the truck line in 1998. Not that the Silverado is a lot different than the standard Chevy pickups, Chevy simply needed a new trim level and model to entice customers looking for fancy and HD all in one truck. Chevy complied with a new truck line, which was designed to directly compete with the growing market of luxurious, yet HD trucks.

These are versatile and excellent driving trucks. I own an older model Chevy pickup truck, it’s the best vehicle I have ever owned, if I needed an engine, I would definitely replace it before I bought a new vehicle.
