Celebrating 100 years of building trucks, Chevy rolled out a pair of special-edition pickups at the Texas State Fair. The 2018 Chevrolet Silverado and 2018 Chevy Colorado will both get 100th-anniversary editions. Dubbed the Centennial Editions, these specially badged pickups will ditch the modern gold bowtie badges, with a pair of historically inspired blue bowties emblazoned with “Chevrolet” going in their place.
If the special badge wasn’t enough to distinguish the special edition from the regular Silverado, there will also be badges on the doors to show off the special trim. The Centennial Edition Silverado and Colorado trucks will bear the same Centennial blue exterior paint, have spray-in bed liners and will be available on the Z71-optioned trucks.
While the Silverado will only get the special edition on crew cab models, the Colorado Centennial Edition will be available for both crew cab and extended cab trucks. The Colorado will also sport 18-inch wheels, whereas the Silverado will roll on 22s. Both trucks will have chrome tow hooks — if that’s your thing.
The special-edition Silverado will hit dealers in October, with the Colorado following in November. The folks at Chevy didn’t mention a price, but we imagine it’ll be in line with the other special-edition pickups. That means you can expect these specially badged trucks to set you back about $2K more than the base LTZ Z71s. Of course, if you have a friend in the parts department, you might be able to grab some of these cool new badges for much less.
