Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Models and Silverado 1500 History

The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is one of General Motors’ best-selling vehicles. The light-duty Silverado 1500 full-sized pickup truck is welcomed on farms and construction sites. Known from 1960 to 1999 as the C/K, Chevrolet’s large pickup trucks would adopt a formal name that accompanied a massive redesign of the product. Referenced as a trim level of Chevrolet trucks for several decades, Silverado 1500 was promoted to the model name of their important standard duty pickup. Available with rear-wheel and four-wheel drivetrains, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 pickup truck is offered in multiple body configurations. Regular cab, extended cab and a four-door crew cab is offered for the Silverado 1500.

 

Since its introduction in 1999, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 delivered several innovations to the full-sized truck marketplace. An adopter of a process called hydroforming, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500’s frame featured strong, but lightweight character. The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is one of the first full-sized trucks in North America to offer a hybrid option introduced in 2004. From 2009 to 2013, the Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid operated with a Two-Mode Hybrid transmission unit producing a combined 30 miles per gallon fuel economy. A six-cylinder or eight-cylinder engine powers Chevrolet Silverado 1500 pickup trucks. Certain later models of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 are Flex Fuel compatible, allowing the use of E85 blended fuel in addition to gasoline.
