Colloquially known as Chevy, Chevrolet is currently offering a wide range of vehicles in hatchback, coupe, sedan, truck, crossover, SUV and sports car segments.
Chevrolet was nicknamed one of the “Low Priced Three” along with Plymouth and Ford for producing the cheapest car models in America such as the Standard Six, a six cylinder vehicle. By the 1960s and 1970s it had become America’s top selling car company, after the success of the Deluxe Impala series.
The company was established in 1911 by William C. Durant, before it was absorbed by General Motors in 1917. GM’s owner Louis Chevrolet named the company after himself. In 1929, the company sold more than one million “Cast Iron Wonder” cars, a big milestone in terms of sales. Among Chevys long time competitors in the American market are Dodge and Ford.
