If you've driven on American streets, it's likely that you've seen a Chevrolet Silverado. In the past two years alone, Chevy has sold over 800,000 of the pickup trucks. The one-ton 3500HD (HD is shorthand for heavy duty) is the sturdiest of the Silverados, and available in plenty of cab styles, bed lengths and trim levels.
Though Chevrolet has been producing pickups since the 1930s, the Silverado nameplate did not appear on trucks until 1975. The name "Silverado 3500HD" was first used in 2007 for the second-generation GMT900 HD platform, which continues today.
