The Big Three US manufacturers have made pickup trucks for decades.

Since 1933, Chevy has made them, and the C/K series is the result of several experiments. 

 The C/K series continued until 1999, when Chevrolet debuted the Silverado. 

Chevrolet entered the small and midsize truck market in the late 20th century.

Though successful, these two retired. Chevrolet subsequently upsized their tiny Colorado family to mid-size

Chevy's third-generation mid-size pickup vehicle is the 2023 Colorado. 

The 2002 Colorado, like today's Ford Maverick, was a small pickup truck

Chevrolet has overhauled the Colorado to compete in the popular mid-size truck category.
