Chevrolet started making trucks in 1908, meaning next year is a milestone for the brand. To celebrate said milestone, Chevy has announced Centennial Edition versions of its Silverado and Colorado pickup trucks.
The special edition versions are fairly light in terms of modifications over your typical Silverado or Colorado, but Chevy enthusiasts will probably appreciate the changes. At their core, both trucks feature unique bowties, including a new blue bowtie on the grille that features “Chevrolet” on it as a throwback to the original 1908 models. The same bowtie is found in the bed and on the floor mats. A unique chrome bowtie is found on the steering wheel, while “100 year” badges are found on the doors.
Silverado Centennial Edition features 22-inch painted wheels, while Colorado Centennial Edition sports 18-inchers.
“The Silverado and Colorado Centennial Editions are a result of collaboration between Chevrolet Design, Engineering and Marketing, to commemorate the history of Chevy Trucks,” said Rich Scheer, Chevrolet Trucks director of Exterior Design. “Both vehicles offer our most enthusiastic fans a way to demonstrate their love for Chevy Trucks and celebrate the Chevy Trucks Centennial with us.”
There are some limitations to the Centennial Editions. It is only offered on Silverado 1500 in LTZ Z71 Crew Cab models, while Colorado buyers can only add it to Z71 models in extended or crew cab formation.
Chevy says the Silverado Centennial Edition will arrive in dealerships next month, while the Colorado version will arrive in November.
