"Chevy's top 10 trucks of all time"

Some of you may have already seen this on Yahoo today:

"Chevy's top 10 trucks of all time"



I must admit I have never seen the Suburban depicted as in the 1973, at least not one with that front end.

Also interesting to see the El Camino as included in this list. I imagine today is would be classified as a CUV.

I'm not going to go look at that, because there are only 2 possibilities, unless we include GMC.
1) Syclone
2) 454SS
3) Street Coupe ( 12-year-older-454SS )

Of course, none of those models made it. Shoot, not even the S10 was included, which I still think was a great truck.

Sometimes I wonder why such lists are made and posted online. Marketing strategy? Considering the fact that the author put the yet-to-be-sold-in-the-US Colorado at the very end of the list, I'd say yes. The other vehicles seem to be there only to build up nostalgia.

Hey Hawk.

That body style actually went from 73-91.
Pretty long run.
Of coarse the front fenders,hoods, lights and grills were changed over the years.

Actually, the new-for-'81 nose was more than just re-styling the front end, it also reduced the weight by more than 100 pounds. I can't see it, but that was GM's official claim.

that was just a model milestone list

one of my favs is a 72 (we had 60 and 70 growing up)
of course I think it would be cool to have a 37, to match my coupe

@ whyholdback: Lol! The trcusk weren't that bad!

@ Pugsy: Hey! You're right, that body style was around for a long time. For some reason, the front end depicted in the picture looked very odd. After doing some Google searching, it turned out it was just me.

@Matt: If that's the case, then I say two things: a) this list is indeed amrketing strategy through a third-party; b) this Colorado better prove to be one heck of a milestone. I'm sure it'll perform well, but man I cannot get over how it looks. And I have the same problem with the "Global Market" Ranger being sold everywhere but the U.S. ... Going strictly by the list, if I ever have the money and the space, I'd love to own anything from a '37 up to '59 as a daily driver.

I still like the 1960 model. Loved the lumpty-lump hood.

Everyone would probably do that list different. All interesting marks for sure but that last one, the 2012 is one hideous fugly truck.

I'm a GM guy, but only the 3 I specified were anything special. Everything else was just a work truck.

'03 SS was heavy, costly and extended cab, and sinfully offered AWD. No special power, like swapping to the LS2. It fails to be worthy.
El Caminos aren't pickups, they're butchered station wagons. Came off a car assembly line, mixed in with Chevelles then Malibus.
