- The Chevrolet Pickup for 1934 was designed from the ground up to withstand the rigors of truck service prior half-ton models had been built on chassis adapted from passenger-car designs.
- During 1935 Chevrolet introduced the Suburban Carryall built on a half-ton chassis. This truck wagon could carry up to eight people or a crew and all of their gear just about anywhere there was a road. Its durable steel body made the new model easier to maintain than the wood-bodied station wagons of the period. With the 1935 Suburban Carryall Chevrolet essentially invented the SUV.
- For 1937 Chevrolet introduced new trucks with streamlined styling that many still consider the best designs of the era. The 37 also featured a sturdier body and a larger and more powerful 78-horsepower engine among other improvements.
