The Best Accessories For Chevy Trucks
Today, we’ll be looking at some of the most popular Chevy truck accessories from a variety of different manufacturers, but most especially from DECKED. DECKED is proud to be an American company, and we manufacture all of our fine products out of our factory in Defiance, Ohio.
This is also where we do all of our assembly, shipping, quality control, and warranty work.
Before we take a deep look at some of the most useful and popular accessories for Chevy trucks, let’s look at some of this iconic American company’s most popular pickup and working truck lines.
The Chevy Silverado Line
The Chevy Silverado was introduced in 1999 as the successor to the Chevy C/K. The Silverado line includes medium-duty trucks, chassis cab trucks, and full-size pickups. As of 2019, the Chevy Silverado is in its 4th generation. Mechanically, it has a great deal in common with the GMC Sierra. Heavy duty versions of the Silverado are sold as the Chevy Cheyenne in Mexico.
The Silverado is among the best-selling vehicles in the United States, and serves as a direct competitor for the Toyota Tundra, the Nissan Titan, the Dodge Ram, and the Ford F-Series.
The Chevy Cruze Line
The Chevrolet Cruze is a 4- or 5-door compact car which has been built under the Chevy name since 2008. It was meant to replace several retired models such as the Chevy Optra, the Chevy Cobalt, and the Holden Astra. It was sold as the Daewoo Lacetti Premiere in South Korea until 2011, when the Daewoo brand was phased out. Cruze production is being phased out, and as of 2021 it was only built in Argentina.
The Chevy Equinox Line
The Chevy Equinox began as a mid-sized SUV in 2004, but since 1028 has been considered a compact crossover SUV. It replaces Chevy models like the Tracker, Blazer, TrailBlazer, and Captiva. The first generation Equinoxes and Pontiac Torrents were mechanically similar to the Suzuki XL7 and the Saturn Vue, but based on the GM Theta platform. The third generation was released in 2018, with a “facelift” for the 2022 model.
The Chevy Colorado Line
The Chevy Colorado is a midsized pickup line introduced in 2004 to replace the older Chevy S-10 and GMC Sonoma. It is also produced as the nearly identical GMC Canyon. It was co-designed by Isuzu, who briefly sold them branded as the Isuzu I-Series. It is based on the GMT 355, which is closely related to the Hummer H3. Chevy Colorados for the North American market are manufactured by Shreveport Operations, while almost all others are built in the GM plant at Rayong, in Thailand. They are available in rear-wheel drive and 4-wheel drive versions.
The Chevy Traverse Line
The Chevy Traverse is a 7-8 person crossover SUV built on the same basic platform as the Buick Enclave and the GMC Acadia. They have been built for the US market in Michigan since 2010. A second generation was released in 2017 (with the 2018 model year), featuring a 3.6 liter V6 engine generating 310 horsepower.
The Chevy Blazer Line
The Chevy Blazer is another of Chevy’s current crop of mid-sized crossover SUVs in most markets. However, in China, the Chevy Blazer is a 7-seat crossover SUV. It was released in 2018 (with the 2019 model year), though the 2.5 liter inline-4 engine versions were dropped with the 2022 model year. The Blazers sold in North America are built in GM’s Ramos Arizpe Assembly plant in Mexico.

How Environmentally Friendly Are The Chevy Accessories You Buy?
The recyclability of the plastics is something you really need to consider when buying Chevy truck accessories these days. You don’t have to be a climate fanatic or an ecological activist to care about the state of our climate, or to bear some of the responsibility of keeping our world clean and habitable for future generations. One way we can help to live up to that responsibility is by shifting our buying habits away from single use plastics, even when it comes to Chevy truck accessories.
This is why we spent so much time working with the plastic resins we use to make DECKED accessories for pickups, SUVs, and working trucks of all kinds. We had to make sure it wasn’t just strong, resilient, and durable, but also both easy and economical to recycle. We did so well that we found it was more economical to recycle our own plastic wastes in-house than to buy new products, and all of the accessories for Chevy trucks 9and all over makes) we sell contain a high proportion of recycled material already.
We do this because we know that it is important to protect our planet, and because we know that our customers would want DECKED’s carbon footprint to be as small as possible. We are proud to source our materials from suppliers who feel the same way.
