Where Are Chevy Trucks Made?

If you are wondering where the Chevy Trucks made, then you are not alone. In fact, not many people know the Chevy truck.  Before or even after having a car, car owners need to know the right location of the automobile’s manufacture.

However, if you are a Chevy truck driver, it is quite hard to know where they are made exactly. In this article, we will provide you all the information you need  to know about Chevy trucks, including where Chevy Trucks are made.

About Chevy Trucks

There are two types of Chevy pickup trucks: The first one is the Chevy Silverado. The Chevrolet Silverado is the type of truck created by General Motors. And of course, the creator is the Chevrolet car brand. After the introduction in the year of 1999, the Silverado model is the main successor of the long-running model line of Chevrolet C/K.

The second type of Chevy pickup trucks is Chevrolet Colorado. Of course, all the truck models of Chevy Colorado are created in the GM Wentzville plant in Missouri, the United States.

Now we know each type of the Chevy trucks, time to acknowledge the place that manufactured these trucks.

Where Are Chevy Trucks Made? 

As we all know, GMC, also known as General Motors Company, is the owner of all Chevy truck brands. The goal of this company is to produce automobiles that are not only safe but also eco-friendly. And in order to ensure that they fulfill this goal, they shake hands with various companies’ services with the purpose of reaching their goals.

Goal of the Company

In order to do that, they need to open their zone to the world. They set up many main offices in different big cities like Detroit, Michigan, United States. Along with that, they have more than a hundred locations. All of them engaged in the warehousing, engineering,distribution, as well as testing of the trucks.

Along with that, General Motors Company is an American multinational company, yet It also has many facilities performing the same tasks in around 35 other countries. We can name some of these famous countries like Japan, Canada, Brazil, Mexico, and of course, the United States.

The Plants to Make Chevy Trucks

In the Flint city of Michigan, they made around 13 million Chevy trucks on the site. The same happens in Mexico where the GMC also created the GMC Sierra, along with the Regular and Crew Cab of the Chevrolet. Last but not least, we have Silao. The plant here is producing the Chevy Silverado 1500 of 2019.

And if you are a big fan of Chevrolet, you know that this type of truck is one of the most well-known trucks in America. The reason for that is its 5-powertrain lineup. However, most of the truck models of Chevy Colorado are made in the Wentzville plant which is located in Missouri, USA. Unlike the Chevy Colorado, the Chevy Silverado truck models, on the other hand, are made in 4 individual plants. 

Not to mention, apart from Chevrolet, GMC has also made well-known vehicle brands, such as Cadillac and Buick.
