From the One-Ton to the Silverado

After Ford this past summer, another American truck manufacturer is marking its centenary this month. The first Chevrolet truck, the One-Ton, first saw the light of day in 1918. To mark the 100 years of Chevy trucks, the company produced special Centennial editions of the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado and Colorado trucks.

“Today, the Chevrolet truck design studio is focused on purposeful design that creates personality and customization options for a wide breadth of truck customers,” said Rich Scheer, director of Exterior Design for Chevy Trucks. “Looking back on the past century of truck design, I realized that Chevrolet designers have been focused on the same goals since the very beginning.”
