Chevrolet: As American as Apple Pie

Chevrolet, better known as Chevy, is about as all-American as the Fourth of July and apple pie despite its French sounding name. Founded in 1911 by William Durant and Louis Chevrolet, a Swiss-born race car driver who immigrated to the US name, the Chevrolet Motor Company existed independently for seven years until it was acquired by GM in 1918 to compete with Ford’s Model T vehicles. Chevrolet first used its famous “bowtie” logo in 1914 and it is often claimed to be derived from the Swiss Cross that was the national symbol of Louis Chevrolet’s homeland. From the start, Chevrolet was a huge success and proved to be a worthy opponent to Ford's Model T and later successors, spawning generations of loyal Chevy devotees. Whether you’re looking for American-muscle, pony cars, top-of-the-line SUVs or strong trucks and pick-ups Chevrolet has something to suite every taste.

The Chevy Corvette: A Legend Is Born

1953 witnessed the introduction of the Chevy Corvette which was a two seater sports car with a fiberglass body. The Corvette would, of course, go on to be one of the most famous American muscle and production sports cars ever built and its release, along with the Bel Air, sparked the beginnings of the American love affair with speed. In its pursuit of speed and power Chevy unveiled the Rochester Ramjet for the Corvette in '57 which was the first fuel-injected engine of its kind and, a scant three years later, the Corvair rolled off the line and into the hearts of car enthusiasts everywhere. Chevrolet was so successful during this time that, by 1963, 1 out of every 10 cars sold in the US was a Chevy. During the decades that followed, base Chevrolet models became some of the best selling lines of cars and trucks in history.

Chevy Turns to Trucks

As the 70s rolled on towards the Eighties, Chevrolet began to put more emphasis on its truck lines despite fielding successful cars like the Chevette and Nova. The arrival of the Chevy Blazer, the CK pick-up and the Suburban only served to strengthen Chevrolet's resolve to move heavily into the production and marketing of trucks and SUVs. Yet, Chevrolet's new-found focus on trucks and SUVs in no way meant that they had left the passenger car field to the competition. Throughout the 90s and right through until today Chevrolet has continued to produce outstanding sedans, coupes and hatchbacks such as the Impala, Camaro, Corvette, and the tuner-targeted Sonic.
