Chevrolet offers a bunch of limited-edition pickup trucks and it's adding another pair to the heap to celebrate 100 years of making trucks. The special editions, which are based on the Silverado LTZ Z71 and Colorado Z71 crew cabs (those are four-door models), are aptly called the Centennial Edition.

The Centennial Editions feature a few unique touches, following the usual recipe for making a special edition model – there's unique Centennial Blue paint and heritage bowtie emblems that Chevrolet claims are based on its earliest pickups. The heritage emblems have a dark blue center with the word "Chevrolet" on the inside in chrome and feature a chrome outline, as well. The heritage logo can also be found on the spray-in bedliner and floor liners, while a 100-year badge can be found on the front doors.

The Silverado Centennial Edition, which is only available with four-wheel drive, brings 22-inch wheels, chrome tow hooks, and an additional bowtie emblem – you can’t never have too many – on the steering wheel. The Colorado Centennial Edition is a little different with a body-color rear bumper and front grille surround, 18-inch wheels, along with chrome tow hooks, mirror caps, belt molding, and door handles.

Make/Model

Chevrolet hasn’t announced pricing for the two special edition trucks, but we expect a modest premium over the trucks they're based on. The Silverado Centennial Edition is available at dealerships in October, with the Colorado Centennial Edition arriving in November.
