Many of us remember the old Chevrolet Silverado commercials that boast the slogan “Like a Rock”. Several Chevrolet truck owners can attest that this statement is completely accurate. Chevrolet trucks have been around for several decades now and have been a top choice when it comes to purchasing a full size truck. General Motors has been producing the Chevrolet truck since the early 1930s but it wasn’t until 1975 that they introduce the Silverado series. Throughout the years, these trucks were created with a four speed automatic transmission and also a five speed manual transmission. The Silverado came with either a 4.3 L V6, 4.8 L V-8, 5.3 L V-8 or the 6 L V-8. In 2004 the vortec engine was created and has since gained popularity. These trucks can be purchased in the half ton or quarter ton version. Today, the base model Silverado can cost you $22,000 plus taxes. In today’s economy, it is not practical for many to purchase a new vehicle and this is perhaps why purchasing a Silverado on Craigslist has become so popular. Many people have concerns about the stability of their job and do not want to be locked into a payment plan that can last for several years. By selling your old vehicle, you may be able to get a truck for just a few thousand dollars plus the proceeds from your previous vehicle.
