Chevy expands Truck Legends program across the country


Not only is Chevrolet celebrating the 100th anniversary of its first truck, but the automaker is doing so with a 100-day centennial celebration that includes special edition trucks and the national rollout of its Truck Legends program for loyal and high-mileage truck owners.

“The Chevy Trucks Centennial is a huge milestone for us, and is equally important to our customers,” Sandor Piszar, Chevrolet trucks advertising and marketing director, said in a news release. “It’s important that we share this celebration with our loyal customers who have helped us achieve this accomplishment.”

While the official centennial takes place December 16, Chevrolet launched its celebration at the State Fair of Texas, an event extremely important to producers of pickup trucks. It was at the Texas fair last year that Chevrolet launched its Truck Legends program on a limited basis. Now, that program is expanding across the country.

Truck Legends members receive this kit

People who have driven their Chevy trucks more than 100,000 miles or who have purchased or leased multiple Chevy trucks in their lifetimes are eligible for the Legends recognition, which includes special events — from concerts and sports to sneak peeks at future models.

Truck Legends members also receive exclusive memorabilia, including hats, and milestone mileage decals for their vehicles. And those vehicles don’t have to be pickup trucks; the Tahoe and Suburban qualify along with the Silverado, Silverado HD, C/K, Colorado, S-10 and Avalanche.

For membership details, see the Truck Legends website.

Chevrolet also unveiled the 2018 Silverado and Colorado Centennial Special Edition trucks. The Silverado Centennial is an LTZ Z71 crew cab while the Colorado version is a Z71 offered in crew and extended cab versions. The Centennial trucks will be available at Chevy dealerships in November and have special trim and badging, spray-in bedliners and wear special Centennial Blue exterior paint.

  1. WOW! Make me so happy to see this! I have a 1978 Stepside that I bought in December 1977. It has 178,000 miles on it and still runs great! Original motor! Still looks good, but plan on doing some work on it, new interior, exhaust, re-chrome the steps, only rust is the driver door, will probably replace it but try to keep the original special order Dark Orange paint. Thank you Thank you! My car before was a 68′ Camaro SS 375h 396. My brother owns it. And you brought back the updated style of them too. Keep up the good work!
