Through the years, Chevrolet has produced some of the most iconic cars and trucks in history. From the classic pick up to the ultimate muscle car, Chevrolet has made memories for thousands of people in one of the most reliable vehicles. Every now and then, Bachman Chevrolet likes to take a trip down memory lane and revisit some of the icons that made Chevrolet a classic.
Let’s take a look at some of the most classic and iconic Chevrolets to date…
From its birth in 1935, the Suburban has become the authority in the area of family safety. With it’s ability to seat up to nine passengers spaciously, this vehicle can take you on a short drive to soccer practice or on a long and comfy family road trip. The Suburban is one of Chevy’s largest SUVs with its cargo room of 40 cubic feet. All the space and comfort comes in handy for when you go on a camping trip to when your kids have a birthday party. Check out more info on the Suburban in our Spotlight blog.
THE CHEVROLET CORVETTE
From its 1953 birth to present day, the Corvette firmly holds its established place as a Chevy Icon and a leader in the muscle car category. The 455 horsepower 6.2-liter V8 powers the base model Corvette. The 650 horsepower supercharged version of that engine pushes the long-awaited Z06 model up to 60 MPH in just 2.95 seconds. Since this model is a pure muscle car, the interior space is made with only the highest quality materials.

THE CHEVROLET CAMARO
Although the Camaro began its existence as a pony car in 1967, it has earned the very well-deserved muscle car status. Through six generations, the Camaro’s performance, appearance, and safety features have continually improved. The Camaro is built low to the ground to create an aesthetically pleasing profile and to enhance the performance of the aerodynamic features. It easily puts the power to the ground using a six-speed manual gearbox or eight-speed paddle shifted automatic transmission. This classic has had some major improvements in the last year, check out our comparison of the 2015 vs the 2016 Camaro.
THE CHEVROLET VOLT
The Chevy Volt has quickly become an icon, having only been around since 2011. In 2014, the Volt won the industry’s honorable award as the 2014 Top Safety Pick, becoming the only car of 12 additional small cars tested to earn the designation. Another reason it’s making headway is due to its advanced technological features. The 2017 Chevy Volt battery technology has been improved and now provides 53 miles on just the battery, as well as 420 miles on a full charge and a full tank of gas.
