15 Of The Sickest Chevy Cars And Trucks GM Has Ever Made

What we have here is a list of 15 of the very best, top of the pile Chevrolets, that GM has ever made.

Out of all the brands that run under the General Motors empire, Chevrolet is perhaps the best known of the bunch. Its factory has pumped out some incredible cars over the years, although a few bad ones have of course got out of the doors too.

Who can fail to recognize such names as Corvette, Camaro, and Silverado? To name just a few of the incredible machines that have come out of the Chevrolet doors.

What we have here is a list of 15 of the very best, top of the pile Chevrolets, that GM has ever made. These range from the muscle cars we all love, to more normal family cars and everyday machines. And yes, we do include that famous pickup truck we all know and, mostly, love.

Some are more modern, some are all-time classics. But they are all some of the very best that the Chevrolet brand has had to offer over the years.

The 1990-1995 Corvettes are some of the best Chevrolets you will ever see and drive. The bold styling paid off handsomely, capturing the attention of Americans and helped launch the model's reputation back up to some lofty heights. Even now, it still looks quite modern, yet with a distinct 1990’s feel as well.

14 Chevrolet Camaro 2019

Whilst we have highlighted the 2019 version of the Camaro here, the reality is most variants of this car have been worth the money. It doesn’t grab the attention like the Corvette usually does, but it is by no means a lesser car. Big, loud, brash…it’s everything you would want in a top line muscle car. And in red, it looks rather evil.

13 1963 Chevrolet Corvette

The 1963 Chevrolet Corvette is probably the most famous variant of the fabled muscle car there is. In fact, I guarantee it’s what most die hard car fans think of when you mention the Corvette to them. There is something so timeless about that styling, and the feel this ‘60s’s classic has. It could be the greatest car in the brands history. And certainly a legend for GM.

12 2009 Corvette ZR1

Modern Corvettes don’t quite have the same styling as the 1963 version, but they are still mega cars. The 2009 model is one of the most popular of the more modern versions out there. It worked well when performing at the peak of its abilities, and it felt like a true drivers car on tricky roads. It just felt spot on.

11 1967 Chevrolet Camaro

Anything from the 1960’s is going to look good, and the 1967 Chevrolet Camaro is on this list purely on those killer looks alone. It is a stunning machine. The original Camaro, it is highly sought after these days and it took the designers and engineers a few attempts to perfect. But when they got it, they created a timeless classic.

10 Corvette Stingray Z51

The original Corvette Stingray is a timeless classic, but the more modern version has certainly lived up to expectations as well. The latest model, coming out next year has been described by Car and Driver as “more than the best Corvette ever”, and that is certainly some praise! It has looks that give off that Stingray feel, and that good old 600+ horsepower V8 will certainly give it the performance as well.

9 Chevrolet Chevelle SS

Another drop dead gorgeous car, I just could not keep the Chevelle SS off this list. It spawned equally impressive offspring’s in the SL5 and SL6, and it’s various I6 and V8 engines all earned a lot of praise. Surprisingly economical, it was a bit of a game changer at the time. Now, it is an all time classic.

8 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1

We’ve looked at offshoots of the Corvette. Now, here is a Camaro off-shoot. The Camaro ZL1 is an absolute monster. 650+ bhp is produced from a monster supercharged V8, giving this thing performance up there with some of Ferrari’s and Aston Martin’s of this world. With looks like that and performance like that, how could you not want one?

7 Chevrolet Impala

Now for something completely different. And something a bit tamer. But for just an everyday, more standard car you can’t go wrong with the Impala. It has a classy and sleek style to it, and it’s interior gives it an inviting, and relaxing feel. With strong mileage and reliability, it is a fantastic car for everyday usage.

6 Chevrolet Corvair Monza

Whilst the concept of the Corvair Monza was perhaps more striking than the final product, it was still a gorgeous car that Chevrolet came out with. It could still punch out over 180bhp during its final year of production in 1969, and many consider this to be an absolute classic now.

5 Chevrolet Corvette C2

via Top Speed

The second generation of the Chevrolet Corvette. And surely, one of the most breathtaking road cars ever produced. Not just in the United States, but perhaps the world over as well. Examples up for sale that in pristine condition can go for six figure sums! A staggering 425bhp was pumped out of it’s V8, which at the time was almost astronomical.

4 Chevrolet Bolt

Not the best looking car out there I have to say, but certainly an innovative machine. It has become the flagship EV for Chevrolet, and has gone down quite well in recent years with reviewers and consumers. It was even named as Motor Trend Car of the Year in 2017, plus listed in Time Magazine’s Best 25 inventions of 2016.

3 Chevrolet WTCC ULTRA Concept

via Wheel Sage

This, whilst only a concept, is a stunning machine. It was built to try and capitalize on the success of the Chevrolet World Touring Car Championship team, although it was rather unsporty with a 190bhp 2.0 liter turbodiesel. It did look good though, even if it’s intended European market saw much tamer looking cars like the Cruze Hatch.

2 Chevrolet Silverado

via Top Speed

The Silverado certainly seems to have a love/hate relationship with owners these days, but it is one of longest standing pickups of all time. That alone makes it one of Chevrolet’s greats. It is rugged, dependable and one of the most popular trucks the world has ever seen. Just don’t mention that the Ford F150 is actually a bit more popular.

1 1985 Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z

via My Classic Garage

Not all of the Chevrolet Camaros produced have been classics, but the IROC-Z from 1985 is certainly not a dud. Far from it. An option package for the Z28, it’s upgraded suspension and tuning gave it an easy and intuitive handling that muscle car lovers adored. Plus, a top speed of 138 mph is not too shabby.
