Similar to Ford, Chevy has been around for over 100 years. Louis Chevy started the company with GM founder William Durant and previously served as a racecar driver in Switzerland before coming to the United States.
Chevy’s logo came to be when William Durant spotted the bowtie symbol in an illustrated newspaper.
Chevy’s First Vehicle
It was released in 1912, the Chevy “Classic Six” sold for $2,150. The car was not successful at first, but Durant kept improving on versions of the vehicle and released the car on GM’s lineup as an affordable and reliable vehicle in 1917.
World War II’s Effect on Chevrolet
Production of Chevy cars for the American population was discontinued in 1942 due to the war. During the war, Chevrolet took the opportunity to manufacture vehicles and equipment to support the Allies. It’s supported that Chevrolet’s manufacturing efforts during World War II helped play a part in Ally’s victory.
After World War II ended, Chevy returned to manufacturing cars using pre-war models and released the first automatic transmission in a low priced vehicle in 1950 with the Powerglide model.
Top Chevy Models
Camaro has been one of Chevy’s top-selling models since the creation in 1967. 2016 marked the release of Camaro’s sixth generation, and the model has sold close to 5 million models since its beginning.
The highest selling Chevy model of all time is the Impala. There have been ten generations of Impalas. A 2014 report named the Impala as the number one affordable large car. In 1965, Chevy Impalas were the best selling cars in America.
Not only known for their sedans, but Chevy is also appreciated for its production of reliable trucks. Chevy Silverados made their debut in 1999 and have been a strong performer ever since. Third generation Silverado boasts over 420 horsepower while the model has sold 9.5 million units through 2014.
