Customize a Classic Chevrolet Silverado with Ultimate Rides
The Chevrolet Silverado has long been a favorite pickup truck for American drivers. While newer models are very easy to find, you may have more difficulty locating an older Chevrolet Silverado that’s still in great shape. Ultimate Rides is a specialty auto dealership that puts an emphasis on high-quality custom trucks, new and used. Our inventory can include plenty of classic vehicles, all of which have been taken care of and are ready to drive. The vehicles in our inventory move quickly, so there’s no telling what you might find on any given day. However, we know that the Chevrolet Silverado is a truck loved by many, and we try to get as many of them as possible through our doors. Take a look at what we have to offer right now, and be sure to contact us if you don’t see what you’re searching for. We have the ability to track down specific models, including a classic Chevrolet Silverado, and bring it home to you.
Ultimate Rides is also home to a high-end lift center, staffed by a team of ASE-certified techs. There we have the ability to customize any vehicle we bring in. You’ll see in our inventory that most of the vehicles already include an upgrade of some kind, most often a suspension lift. The fun doesn’t have to end there, however. Any time you buy one of our vehicles, you’ll have the opportunity to make custom upgrades in our lift center. Whatever modifications or accessories you’re after, our team can make it happen.
If you’re worried about the cost of these features, have no fear. You’ll have the option of financing the upgrades, including them in your monthly vehicle payment. This makes the process much more manageable for your budget, and can help you start driving an impressive used Chevrolet Silverado in a matter of days.
Chevrolet Silverado Favorite Model Years
Though old Chevrolet trucks didn’t adopt the Silverado name until 1999, many of the models from that era are still referred to with the well-known moniker all the same. Before the company made the change, the name was used for the highest trim level available for the Chevrolet C/K pickup trucks. You can still find models of these used trucks for sale to this day, though they are becoming harder to track down as the years go on.
According to many pickup truck enthusiasts, the best retro model of the Chevrolet Silverado is the first official release, from the 1999 model lineup (though it was actually released in the latter half of 1998). Particularly, people seem to love the Z71 trim level for the suspension tuned for towing capabilities, though that is something our team can offer on any truck. The first generation ran through the 2007 model year, and drivers could find a variety of exciting trim levels from Chevrolet over that time period. Specifically, some models of the vehicle for sale during that era featured an 8.1L Vortec 8100 V8 engine, providing as much as 340 horsepower.
Features and Capabilities of the Chevrolet Silverado
Depending on the exact model of the Chevrolet Silverado you choose, you may find a wide variance in terms of features. It should go without saying that older models of the truck will include less upgrades and will have an overall basic design, as that’s just how vehicles were manufactured for many years. These days, we’re used to finding modern amenities such as a rearview camera, steering wheel audio controls, and more available in the cab.
The benefit to buying an older Chevrolet Silverado is that you can find it at a great price because it lacks many of these modern qualities. Instead, it offers a reliable and powerful engine, and a more trustworthy transmission than many of today’s trucks. Take some time to think about what you want out of your next vehicle. Once you have an idea in your head, you can contact our team and we’ll do all we can to set you up with the right fit. For instance, if you plan on taking your Chevrolet Silverado off-road, there may be certain engine configurations and trim levels that are more favorable to you, along with potential upgrades from our team.
