Chevy Pickups Celebrate 100 Years With Centennial Edition


To celebrate 100 years of Chevrolet pickup trucks, the Bow-Tie brand introduced the Centennial Edition for the Silverado 1500 and Colorado pickups at the in Dallas. The eye-catching Centennial Blue special editions will not have any mechanical upgrades, but they will be offered with a unique classic bow-tie badge that echoes designs from the original 1918 work truck.

The well-equipped Silverado 1500 Centennial Edition LTZ Z71 crew cab will sport unique badges on the front grille, tailgate and front door, the latter a special 100 Years badge. A spray-in bedliner and floor liners will sport bow-tie emblems, and 22-inch wheels and chrome tow hooks will complete package. The Colorado Centennial Edition LTZ will be offered in crew or extended cab, and will include the emblem bedecked spray-in bedliner and floor liners along with chrome tow hooks, mirrors and door handles. The limited-production Silverado 1500 will be available in October and the Colorado in November.

In addition to the two new special-edition pickups, Chevrolet also announced that its popular Chevy Truck Legends club, which launched in 2016 and now boasts a membership of almost 6,000 Chevy owners in Texas, will go nationwide. The program makes loyal Chevy truck owners whose pickups have more than 100,000 miles on the odometer eligible for numerous perks, from front-row seats at concerts to MLB games, sneak-peek movie premieres and more.
