Chevrolet is represented in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series by the Silverado.[86] As of the 2016 season, 19 full-time teams use the Silverado.[87] Chevrolet has won the Truck Series Manufacturers Championship eight times since the series inception in 1995 and Chevrolet drivers have won the Drivers Championship a combined 12-times. The Silverado is also the title sponsor for the Chevrolet Silverado 250 Truck Series race at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.[88]

The truck also won the Primm 300 off-road race in 2004, 2005 and 2006.

As of 2015, the Chevrolet Silverado is sold in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Venezuela, Chile, and the Middle East (except Iran), and the GMC Sierra is sold in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and the Middle East (except Israel and Iran). More recently, the Chevrolet Silverado now sold in Paraguay.

GM has also announced plans to introduce the Silverado, along with the smaller Colorado, to China.

Chevrolet started selling the Silverado in Oceania in 2018 via Holden Special Vehicles (a former subsidiary of GM's now-defunct Holden brand) but will retain the Chevrolet badge. The vehicles are sold Right Hand Drive versions for that region.

There is a small gray market for both the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra trucks in some parts of the world, mostly in Scandinavian countries and Germany.

C/K is a series of trucks that were manufactured by General Motors. Marketed under the Chevrolet and GMC brands, the C/K series included a wide range of vehicles. While most commonly associated with pickup trucks, the model line also included medium-duty and heavy trucks. "C" denoted a two-wheel drive; "K" denoted four-wheel drive.

Introduced for the 1960 model year, the C/K series was marketed by Chevrolet until 2002 in the United States (GMC marketed the series from 1960 to 1987). In South America, the C/K was marketed by Chevrolet from 1964 to 2001 in Brazil and from 1975 to 1982 in Chile. After 1989, GM ended the use of the C/K series for medium-duty trucks, replaced by the Chevrolet Kodiak/GMC TopKick.

The C/K series was produced across four generations, introduced in 1960, 1967, 1973, and 1988. In contrast to Chevrolet, GMC marketed only the first three generations as the C/K, with the fourth generation becoming the GMC Sierra. Introduced in 1999, the Chevrolet Silverado became the divisional replacement for the C/K; the Silverado and Sierra drew their nameplates from top-level trims in use since the 1970s.

Launched in the fall of 1959, the 1960 model year introduced a new body style of light pick-up truck that featured many firsts. Most important of these were a drop-center ladder frame, allowing the cab to sit lower, and independent front suspension, giving an almost car-like ride in a truck. Also new for 1960 was a new designation system for trucks made by GM. Gone were the 3100, 3200, and 3600 designations for short 1/2, long 1/2 and 3/4-ton models. Instead, a new scheme assigned a 10, 20, or 30 for 1/2, 3/4, and 1-ton models. Since 1957, trucks were available from the factory as four-wheel drive, and the new class scheme would make this known. A C (conventional) in front of the series number designates 2-wheel rear drive while a K designates 4-wheel drive.

Actual badging on Chevrolet trucks carried the series name system from the previous generation for 1960 and 1961: the 10, 20, 30, and 40 series (C and K) were badged as "Apaches", 50 and 60 series trucks were badged as "Vikings", and the largest 70 and 80 series models were marked "Spartans". For 1960, C/K trucks were available in smooth "Fleetside" or fendered "Stepside" versions. GMC called these "Wide-Side" and "Fenderside". Half-ton models were the C10 and K10 long-bed and short-bed trucks, and The 3/4-ton C20 and K20, as well as the one-ton C30, were also available. GMC did not use the "C" nomenclature, though their 4x4 versions used the "K" nomenclature. GMC model numbers for 1/2, 3/4, 1, and 1.5 ton were 1000, 1500, 2500, and 3000. The 1.5 ton Chevrolet C40 and GMC 3000, which were using the light-duty cab[4][5] (but only as chassis-cab and stake models), were discontinued for the 1963 model year.[5][6]
