The brand was founded in Detroit, in November 1911, by racer Louis Chevrolet and General Motors founder William C. “Billy” Durant, who developed cars that quickly earned reputations for performance, durability and value. Those traits remain at the core of Chevrolet, which is the world’s fourth-largest automotive brand.
From the very start, Chevrolet brought technology and features typically reserved for more expensive cars to its lineup of affordable cars and trucks.
From design and safety to performance and fuel efficiency, Chevrolet vehicles consistently earn top marks and prestigious awards from respected automobile organizations such as J.D. Power, NHTSA, IIHS, the automobile news media and more.
