The Silverado's History

Chevy released the first Silverado truck in 1999. The Silverado SUV trim had been around since 1975, eventually becoming a trim of the C/K truck series as well. The Silverado trim did so well that when Chevy finally decided to retire its C/K series, the replacement for that iconic vehicle was named the Silverado. Now, when we hear the term "Silverado," we associate it solely as its own model. Silverado trucks are very similar to the related GMC Sierra model when it comes to their basic design, but they keep their own unique Chevy twist.

As time went on, Chevy began using stronger materials on the Silverado, making it even more durable than it originally was. Stronger engines and better suspension systems accompanied these heavy-duty upgrades. In addition to its work abilities, the Silverado has also always been an off-road capable truck, and you can often find used models equipped for off-road performance. The Silverado has even competed in motorsports and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series as proof of its performance potential. No matter what you need from your pickup truck, a used Chevy 1500 can meet those needs.

Early on, Silverados only came in double cab or regular cab options. Now, Silverado 1500s come in several more configurations than before, with an available long bed, standard bed, short bed, double cab, double cab, regular cab, and crew cab options, with multiple available combinations of each choice. This makes it one of the most diverse trucks on the market. Whether you need lots of cab space, a little bed space, vice versa, or a little or a lot of both, there's a Chevy 1500 option for you. Thanks to these specs and innovations, the Silverado has been one of the most desired trucks across America for many years and likely will remain so for many more.

Why Buy a Used Chevy 1500?

here are many reasons you'll want to buy a used Silverado 1500 if you catch one for sale. We have many more reasons to buy this model, aside from what we've already mentioned. Let's start with the fact that Silverado 1500s come in a variety of engine options. We find that the diesel variant is especially worth mentioning.

The Silverado 1500's diesel engine can save money on fuel while also providing more strength. Diesel engine trucks also hold their value much better than gasoline engines, so buying a used Chevy 1500 diesel can be especially beneficial. On the flip side, though, if towing isn't as important to you, and you're not a diesel fan, smaller gasoline engine options are also available. However, remember that the diesel Chevy Silverado 1500 gets some of the best mileage out of trucks in its class.

There's also plenty of variety when buying a used Silverado 1500. If you go with an older model, you'll get an affordable deal, and you'll still be able to tow campers, ATVs, small boats, and much more. This is an especially good idea if driver-assist features and technology do not appeal to you. You won't have to spend extra money on tech trinkets that you're not necessarily interested in.

On the flip side, buying a newer used Silverado 1500 model will be more affordable than buying brand new, while still including the tech features you may desire. If you're looking for towing assistance, many used Silverado 1500s offer hitch guidance assist with hitch view. This technology allows drivers to view their hitch via a backup camera, and it includes guidance and alerts specific to trailers. Not only is this helpful when hooking up a trailer alone, but it can help drivers line up their trucks to their trailers without the need for exiting and re-entering the vehicle constantly.

Another reason to buy a used Chevy Silverado 1500 lies in its space. While earlier we mentioned how early Silverados only game in regular cab and double cab options, the truck evolved to include multiple bed and cab builds. In fact, as a whole, recent Silverado models have offered more bed space than their competitors. This makes a used Chevy 1500 an even better option if you are looking for the most versatile pickup out there for all your work tasks.
