The History of the Silverado

Initially, Silverado referred to a trim package on the Chevrolet C/K, Chevy Suburban and the Chevy Tahoe from 1975 through 1999. The C in Chevrolet C/K refers to two-wheel drive. C and K are still used in model codes today and refer to two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive models. The Chevrolet Silverado that we know and love today was introduced into the United States in 1999.

Since the Silverado was introduced into the automotive world, it has been known to be a great industrial and farming/agricultural full-size pickup truck. As technology has become more advanced, the Silverado is available as a luxury work truck. Today, customers have the option to purchase the Silverado 1500, the Silverado 2500HD, the Silverdo 3500HD and the Silverado Chassis Cab. The Silverado is available in either in different cab variations as well.

My experience with working with Moe El Meanawy was the best experience I have ever had with a salesman at any other dealership. He kept his promise and made sure that I was taken care of. I am a out of state buyer located in South Carolina and he kept me informed every step of the way with purchasing my SUV. I can't thank him enough. If you ever need a vehicle and you are located out of state or in state, this young man is the one you need to talk to and he will lead the way for you. No pressure sales. Very honest! Call Moe for your next vehicle!

Great experience all around, got the car "I" wanted at the price "I" wanted, which has not been the case at prior dealerships. Didn't try to railroad me on any aspect of the process. They made sure that I was comfortable with everything before proceeding further.
