The Chevrolet Silverado is the latest full-size pickup truck from Chevrolet. There is also a GMC counterpart named the GMC Sierra. This truck has really made a name for itself in the very competitive truck market. Trucks are an odd vehicle to sell because people take them very seriously and expect some serious working power from these models. No one wants to go haul their boat only to find that their truck doesn’t have enough power to climb a hill. As of 2006, the Silverado pickup is the second-best selling vehicle in the United States, sitting only behind the Ford F-Series pickup truck. The Silverado is actually made of two different platforms: one for standard and one for heavy-duty models.Sales for the Silverado have been spectacular with according to Autodata Corp, 58,696 Silverados were sold in Feb 2007. When that is compared with Ford F-Series sales of 55,251 it looks like the Silverado is holding its own quite well.

General Motors introduced its first pickup truck in 1930, but the term “Silverado” was a title used only to distinguish the higher-level trim for the Chevrolet C/K pickup trucks, which were made from 1975 through 1999. On a similar note, GMC’s C/K used the “Sierra” as their higher-level trim title on its vehicles up until 1988. In 1988, GMC made a shift and decided to use the “Sierra” name on all GMC pickup trucks. Even so though, the “C/K” nomenclature was continued through 1999. For easy identification, the “C” trucks had rear-wheel drive while “K” models were four-wheel drive. To much dismay, the “C” and “K” designations were dropped in 1999. It appears as though Chevrolet isn’t going anywhere in the truck market and even though they sometimes have trouble competing with foreign cars, they certainly have the truck market cornered in the United States.
