Lonzo Anderson’s 16-year-old Chevy Silverado, which currently has 375,000 miles on it and counting, has been named the Official Chevy Truck Legend of Texas. Chevy found out about the Silverado at least year’s State Fair of Texas, where Lonzo sought out Chevy’s booth to tell them about his truck’s incredible durability.
This year, at the same State Fair of Texas, Chevy displayed Anderson’s Silverado in a place of honor for the duration of the fair as a testament to the brand’s commitment to creating dependable, long-lasting vehicles.
Anderson’s story led Chevy to develop the Chevy Truck Legends program, of which Anderson’s Silverado is the first. The program is free to enter for any Chevy truck owner whose truck has over 100,000 miles on its odometer or who have owned or leased more than one Chevy truck. It will officially begin nationally in 2017.
The free program offers exclusive memorabilia and decals celebrating mileage milestones all the way up to 1 million miles, and dealerships may participate and offer members free car washes and discounts.
Truck Legends members are already benefiting from being part of the program—a few select members were present for the unveiling of the all-new 6.6-liter turbo-diesel engine for the 2017 Silverado HD at the Texas Motor Speedway.
