The Chevrolet brand of automobile was co-founded by two people on November 3, 1911 when Chevrolet introduced the classic 6, 5 passenger touring sedan. The cofounders where Louis Chevrolet and William C. Durant. In 1917 Durant became president of General Motors and the Chevrolet division was born. Chevrolet had a significant impact on the American automobile market in the 1950s and 1960s, in fact in 1963 one out of every 10 cars that was sold in the United States was a Chevrolet.
Popular Chevrolet models include the Impala introduced in 1958, the Belair introduced in 1957, the Corvette introduced in 1953 and still produced today, the suburban introduced in 1936 and still in production today and the Chevrolet Camaro which ceased production after 35 years of production in 2002.
Chevrolet van models have been sold in Europe under various model names such as the GMC LUV TD 4*4 double cab pickup manufactured from 2002 until today’s date. Chevrolet has experienced a great deal of competition recently in the UK as well as in North America from Asian vans that have been competing for market share in the UK.
General Motors produces full-size vans in a rear wheel drive configuration called the G-Series and an all wheel drive configuration called the H- Series. These vans replaced the GMC Vandura series in 1997. This cargo variety Van is popular with electricians, plumbers and others trades people who need the van to haul a variety of equipment and other large items. Both of these cargo and passenger models will often serve as a basis for conversion vans and small motor homes.
The G. series and the H series vans were preceded by the GMC Vandura produced by GM from 1970 until 1996. The Vandura also was known as the Chevy van and again was popular with many electricians, plumbers and tradespeople who use these vans to get back and forth to their job locations, for delivery purposes and to carry large amounts of equipment. Many people refer to all these different models of GM vans as simply Chevy vans.
General Motors also produced a Chevrolet Astro minivan which was introduced in 1985 to compete with other vans produced by Ford and Chrysler. The Astro minivan was very successful especially with large families and small companies who converted these vans for business use as well as commercial companies.
Introduction of minivans and full-size vans revolutionized both the consumer market as well as the commercial market. These vans provided sufficient room for people to carry larger families with all of their suitcases, camping gear or sports equipment, as well as trades people who used these vans for commercial purposes as well. Many companies were set up to act as conversion companies to take a basic full-size van and convert it into a special use van specifically for a particular trade. Many full-size commercial vans today have a small number of seats, as well as room to place equipment and cabinets to house construction gear.
