1995 Chevy Silverado

This truck is a fourth generation GM full-size truck (aka. GMT400). In various cab configurations, this truck generation was produces between 1988 and 2002. That’s a long a successful run for any vehicle.

This 1995 model was offered with a base 4.3-liter gas V6 engine, but under the hood of this truck is a good-old Chevy 350 cu-in (5.7-liter) V8 engine with EFI (Electronic Fuel Injection). The power rating listed between 190 – 210 horsepower. The torque is 300 lb-ft at a low 2,400 rpm. In this case, the engine is backed up by a 5-speed manual transmission.

You can walk in to a Chevrolet dealership now and buy a two-door base model Silverado truck. However, it’s now offered only with a long 8-foot bed, and a manual transmission is no longer an option.

What about the price of the truck? The 1995 you see here has many options. It has the optional powerful V8 engine, power mirrors, windows, and door locks. The final price in 1995 was $18,200 after a $1,000 discount. When adjusted for inflation, this is equivalent to approximately $30,500 in today’s money.

Remarkably, a brand-new 2020 Silverado 1500 starts at about the same price. In fact, the Chevy website lists a base WT truck with a V6 at just under $29,000.
