Chevrolet Rolls Out Truck Legends Program Nationwide21
In 2016, Chevrolet revealed a pilot program called “Truck Legends” for owners in the state of Texas. After a successful first year, Chevy returned to the 2017 State Fair of Texas to announce the program is going national, running parallel with Chevrolet Trucks 100th birthday.
Now, all loyal Chevrolet truck owners may sign up to be a part of the Truck Legends program, which recognizes owners with more than 100,000 miles on the odometer, or who have purchased or leased more than one Chevy truck in their lifetime.
“We had an incredible response to the Truck Legends pilot program, and greatly appreciate the owners who have shared their stories,” said Sandor Piszar, Chevrolet Trucks Marketing director. “We look forward to hearing from customers across the country, and for the opportunity to say ‘thank you’ to our most loyal customers.”
Vehicles eligible for the program include:
- Silverado (and past C/K trucks)
Since its launch in September 2016, 5,400 owners signed up for the program in Texas. The brand expects similar success nationwide. The program offers more than just basic recognition, however. The Truck Legends program includes the chance to experience once-in-a-lifetime opportunities as well. Periodically, Chevy may treat members to front-row seats at concerts, attending sold-out Major League Baseball games or getting a sneak peek at new Chevrolet models.
Alongside the program’s expansion, Chevrolet revealed the 2018 Silverado Centennial Edition and 2018 Colorado Centennial Edition. The brand also invites all Chevy Truck fans to a massive event at Texas Motor Speedway on December 16, 2017, to culminate 100 days of the celebrating the centennial.

That’s one heck of a lot of miles. For a Chevy truck. Pushrod engines are a good bet to go a while but those pesky new electronics they put in cars these days, the General hasn’t those figured out just yet. Expect to replace most at least once. Your check engine light will burn for some emissions thing, also “service stabilitrak” already, and your truck won’t have the original tire pressure sensors unless you enjoy watching that warning light too.
The AC will blow hot in late July at least once during that time. To replace your fuel pump the fuel tank will need to be dropped, and you will be on a first name basis with the service tech after the first three recalls: “I thought I bought a Chevy and the center display says GMC, you mean they build those in the same plant? How come THEY can’t tell the difference”. The K2 shudder shake might be something you’re into, though.
Go buy a Ford then and let us know what all you change on it!

No longer owned, but a much loved truck and still doing farm work in Eastern Oregon. This truck hauled thousands of tons of Building materials, Logs, Cars/Race cars, Horses/Live stock, Tractors, Equipment, over 25-years. For family fun we put our camper on it for the weekends and vacations and hit the back roads/Forest/Desert roads. With its posi-traction dif. It could ford streams and handle steep Jeep trail/roads dry or wet or in the snow.
EDIT would work… Manual Trans.
What’s weird is that you mention the special program, but then do not provide a link to it.
Chevy/GMC trucks and Suburbans owned. 1950 _3100… 1954_3100*… 1960_3100… 1968 Suburban… 1972 _C10…1981 Suburban… 1981_2500HD… 1988 K2500… 1998 S-10
The 54′ was a Phantom/custom. I built it like an El Camino using body panels from a Suburban, solidly welded to the cab. Used gen-2 Firebird clip with built Olds engine, and Firebird steering column and wheel with cruise. Clip attached to fabricated frame with tunneled race rear frame for big meats all on air shocks. Wife loved driving that truck with its Rivera power seat, cruise control, air-conditioning, great handling, good brakes, stereo, and tire ripping power, Grrl’s/women like to burn rubber, too. I liked the look of it, but preferred driving my stock 1950_3100 Std-cab.
1970 Chevy truck that I have had for 44 years and is about 7k miles away from 500,000 miles!
Where do I sign up my truck at? Since you are talking loyalty I personnly have only owned Chevrolet cars and trucks in my life!
Show me somebody else who can say that!
2005 Extend Cab 4×4 Z71 bought new in December 2004 and has 241K
1993 C2500 6.5L diesel, retired at 514,000..still have it…want to restore it…was my first new truck
2006 C2500HD Duramax, 262,000 miles
2009 G3500 chassis, Duramax, 380,000 miles
Of note, the 09 chassis replaced a “superior german engineered and built” Sprinter…what a pile of over complicated junk that thing was. Only put 200,000 miles on it….a LOT of warranty work, what on a GM would be called an early part failure MB calls “required maintenance”. First and last non GM I’ll ever own.
How come the Chevy Astro is not included it’s built on a truck chassis I own one with 216,000 miles only had regular tuneup’s I replaced just water pump and radiator and air mass and the basics tires shocks and ft end components runs like a baby oh by the way she’s fully loaded with everything but the kitchen sink and a 2500 watt system
It would be nice if they would honor truck owners by taking care of the ones who spent $45K and ended up with a vibrator going down the highway. They REFUSE to address this issue. I WISH I could take my truck to 100K miles, that is what I planned on when I bought it. Now I just cant wait to figure out a way to get rid of this thing without taking a bath on it. Congrats on 100 years, now act your age. Also, to all of the creditors out there who took a bath in your bankruptcy it seems your telling them you’re only 9 years old. They are being told to get bent on their money they are owed pre-2009. Convenient.
It’s vibratates to much! My heart just bleeds for you! My old truck shakes like a old man with Parkinson’s and it just make me happy!
Where do I sign up? Got a 2004 S10 Extreme Blazer with 195k. 5 Speed stick, too.
300K on my 1999 Motor Trend Truck of the year! It’s been nothing but awesome! Still looks and drives like I just picked it up from John Elway Chevrolet! White Z-71 1500 with factory 4-10s. I couldn’t be more happy. Here in Colorado, weather happens and only a truck will do. I get notes left on it asking if I’d be willing to sell it. Not going to happen!
I have 220,000 on my 2010 Sierra Z-60 edition and a front end rebuild, and brain box replacement are the only problems to date. Can’t wait to see the new 2019 model hit the streets. I have seen the new body style and it is slick.
Oh so what does it look like? Are they debuting it in Texas at the special event???
Only 60k on my 13 avalanche, but pure truck bliss. Too many new truck owners expect a car driving experience – It a friggin truck fool! I got in the club as it was my 4th gm truck. Sign up gives a free hat and decals – it was emailed to me as an owner…
Where do I sign up my truck at? Since you are talking loyalty.
Go online and register your truck. The stuff they send you is really kool
Just traded in my 2000 Sierra 4×4 4.3 with 319,200mi for a 2015 Silverado double cab 4×4 4.3. Sierra still ran like a clock. Factory starter, timing chain, water pump, engine and that fuel filter I could never remove. (New England truck) Hoping this one lasts as long!
No Legends club for the GMCs?
Can I join with my 2002 Yukon Xl SLE with 330,000 or no since its not technically a Chevy?
