About the Silverado

In 1918, Chevy produced their first pickup truck, but it wasn’t until years later that the Silverado became its own full-size and heavy-duty pickup truck series. The Silverado 1500 and the Silverado 2500 were both released in 1999. The Silverado 1500 is the more widely known vehicle because many people do not need the heavy-duty capability of the Silverado 2500. However, if you need a truck specifically for work, the 2500 could be for you. This truck was built to handle more when it comes to towing and hauling. The 2500 is bigger and more powerful than the Silverado 1500. Learn more about this truck below.
