Chevrolet Logo Chevrolet was founded in 1911 by Louis Chevrolet, a Swiss man who emigrated to the United States when he was young. Chevrolet had worked for several car manufacturers and was a well-known racer when he caught the eye of General Motors' founder William Durant. General Motors absorbed Chevrolet in 1919 but Chevy, as it's more commonly known, didn't fade away despite a slump in sales during the 1920s. By 1929, Chevrolet had become the largest automobile manufacturer in the world and was outselling Ford! Today Chevrolet is still known for making solid, all-American, affordable cars. Whether you are looking for a fuel-efficient budget car, a truck with towing capacity, or anything in between, Chevrolet continues to manufacture a wide variety of models suitable for different needs.
