Few logos are more recognizable around the world than Chevrolet’s golden bowtie.

This All-American brand has been an automotive leader in the USA since it was founded in 1911. It’s safe to say the streets of the Land of the Free wouldn’t be the same without some Chevy wheels here and there.

There’s no reason why Grand Theft Auto 5’s Los Santos should be any different: after all, it’s based on Los Angeles, California, and that place is swarming with Chevy Silverados.

If you agree and want to bring some Chevy charm into your game, check out these top-quality car mods to get you started!


1. Chevrolet Silverado (2020)

A muscular pickup truck like the Chevrolet Silverado is the perfect ride for any Los Santos thug.

You might fancy a two-seater sports car or even a kick-ass bike that makes you feel alive while speeding on the highway – but you can’t rely on those for real work.

Here’s the thing: you never know when you’ll have to haul a full team of “collaborators” for a “gig” at a local bank, move a small shipment of contraband guns, or tow a stolen supercar back to your workshop.

You just can’t figure out a creative solution every time: you need a beefy, spacious vehicle, and the Silverado is here to provide.


2. Chevrolet Suburban LTZ (2016) Armored Secret Service ver.

The Chevrolet Suburban has become famous worldwide as the United States Secret Service’s signature escort vehicle and a favorite of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Chevrolet markets the Suburban as a “large family SUV” – but when they say “family,” I hear “squad of heavily-armed law enforcement agents.”

This Grand Theft Auto 5 mod introduces an armored 2016 Suburban LTZ with tiny red and blue LED lights that go on whenever the otherwise unmarked truck needs to communicate its authority.

It’s a godsend to replace some of the LSPD’s or FIB’s vehicles. You can also drive it yourself if you fancy posing as law enforcement – or if you’re playing a mod like LSPD: First Response.


3. Chevrolet Nova (1969)

The bowtie brand has been a staple of American streets for decades thanks to popular, affordable vehicles with great style and solid performance that anyone could love.

In 1962, Chevrolet introduced the Chevy II, immediately capturing the attention of compact car buyers.

The “Nova” was the highest trim available for this car.

Eventually, Chevrolet dropped the “Chevy II” branding and gave the car a significant face-lift for a marketing re-focus – the result being the gorgeous boxy semi-fastback you see above.


4. Chevrolet Bel Air (1957)

The name “Chevrolet Bel Air” immediately takes our minds to images of 1950s celebrities on leisurely drives on coastal roads.

This full-size car popularized the hardtop body style among the masses thanks to its affordable price tag, and it remains one of the most sought-after collectible vintage cars.

The attention-grabbing tailfins and protruding circular headlamps are things you wouldn’t want nowadays but can’t help but love in the proper context.

Nothing is more romantic than watching its glossy and chromed surfaces glisten under the last golden rays before the sun sets.


5. Chevrolet Corvette C1 (1960)

Ask any classic car fan what Chevrolet’s biggest achievement is, and you’ll get the same answer every time: the Corvette.

This sports car was rushed into production late in 1953 to capitalize on the buzz around the concept model, meaning there were still some details to be ironed out.

Every model year brought some improvements and minor adjustments to Chevrolet’s All-American sports car. By 1960, we had arrived at the stunning roadster included in this mod.

Echoes of the 1950s permeate the car’s entire body, giving it a distinctive appeal similar to the Bel Air’s.


6. Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray “Split Window” (1963)

The Corvette wouldn’t reach its true potential until the second generation was released in 1963.

Its sharp and aerodynamic styling was inherited from Chevrolet’s Sting Ray Racer from 1959, while the car’s rather compact size and body shape are influenced by the Q-Corvette project.

The original 1963 model year is known as the “split window” due to its split rear window inspired by the 57SC Bugatti “Atlantique” and the Oldsmobile Golden Rocket.

Before 1963, the Corvette’s styling was more about leisure and lifestyle – now, it was all about speed.


7. Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Roadster (1963)

At a glance, you’d be forgiven for confusing this Corvette roadster for an entirely different car.

The Sting Ray becomes a new beast without the rounded roof and split rear window.

This change comes with some benefits beyond a fresh style. Without a split window, you might actually be able to see what’s happening behind you while driving in first person… or in real life.

The Grand Sport is one of the most exclusive cars in the world of collectible classics.

Only five were made, and though all of them are perfectly maintained by their owners, your only chance of ever driving one is this Grand Theft Auto 5 mod.


8. Chevrolet Camaro SS (1969)

If you’ve heard of the Ford Mustang, then you know of the Chevrolet Camaro.

These two All-American cars have disputed the title of best American pony car since the 60s, and the debate has never been settled.

This 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS belongs to this muscular machine’s first generation.

It was arguably the most iconic and visually striking Camaro until the fifth-generation came out in 2010, sporting beautiful blocky styling inspired by this classic.

Riding this around Los Santos will earn you more respect among the locals than any amount of violence ever could.


9. Chevrolet Chevelle Super Sport (1967)

I never hear anyone talking about the Chevelle.

It’s always “Corvette this, Camaro that,” even though the Chevelle is just as attractive.

Despite its relative obscurity in modern times, the Chevelle badge was one of Chevrolet’s most successful enterprises.

It also served as the base for the second-generation El Camino pickup truck and the Malibu.


10. Chevrolet Camaro Z28 (1979)

I may have said the first-generation Camaro was the most iconic entry in the family, but that doesn’t mean subsequent versions of this American classic were anything to scoff at.

Far from it, the Chevrolet Camaro Z28 from 1979 will blow your mind with its elegant lines and remarkable performance. The Z28 badge is all about high speeds and a sporty personality.

The more you look at it, the more you see echoes of the Pontiac TransAm it was competing with.

The model year 1979 boasts some of the highest Camaro sales in history.


11. Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z (1990)

There’s a good reason why the Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z looks like it belongs in a Cyberpunk dystopia.

For the iconic pony car’s third generation, Chevrolet completely abandoned their previous design language, choosing to craft something new that fit the personality of the 80s.

Since the cyberpunk genre was born in the 80s, its “futuristic” aesthetic is a particular sort of 80s-inspired retro-futurism. It’s eighties-futurism, and the Camaro IROC-Z fits snugly in that category.

This mod features GTA 4-style handling, which many of you will prefer.


12. Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 (1970)

Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 (1970) / GTA5 Mod

Check Out This Mod

If there’s a car in this list whose appearance will make your heart skip a beat, it’s the Corvette ZR1 from 1970.

The third-generation Corvette was introduced in 1968 with renewed styling that looks for inspiration in marine life and the “Stingray” name.

It’s like a steel shark chasing you on four wheels! It even has fins, though the Stingray’s side-mounted exhausts are for letting out fumes rather than sifting oxygen from water.

The ZR1 package replaced comforts like air conditioning for performance-increasing upgrades on all fronts, including the engine, transmission, and suspension.

The adrenaline will make you forget that such a thing as AC existed while driving this at top speed.


13. Chevrolet Camaro SS (2021)

Countless badges and car series have faded into obscurity after their glory days were over.

Others, like the Chevrolet Corvette, keep their glory days going indefinitely.

The seventh-generation Corvette marked the return of the Stingray badge after becoming dormant in 1976. This revival was accompanied by a styling renewal, focusing on sharp edges and aggressive angles.

The Corvette ZR1 – revealed at the 2017 Dubai Motor Show and released in 2019 – was the seventh generation’s parting gift before being phased out.

It’s the ultimate member of its family, both in styling and performance.


14. Chevrolet Camaro SS (2021)

If the Chevrolet company suddenly collapsed and could only keep up development for one of their products, I’d choose the Camaro without thinking twice.

Chevrolet just knows how to make a modern muscle car!

The 2021 Camaro SS adapts and modernizes some of the best design ideas from over 50 years of Chevrolet Camaros.

The competition was fierce back in the day, but in the 2020s, the Camaro blows everything else out of the water – at least regarding design. Only the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat can even compete.


15. Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (2023)

Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (2023) / GTA5 Mod

Check Out This Mod

We’ll end this mod-enabled interactive tour through Chevrolet history by looking at what the future holds for the Corvette.

Looking at the dazzling 2023 Corvette Z06 takes me back to 2013’s Geneva Motor Show when the Lamborghini Veneno was revealed.

It’s not just because of the new Corvette’s bold switch to a rear mid-mounted engine. This sports car features many sharp angles and aggressive design choices that echo the absolute madness that was the Veneno.

It’s 670hp of pure, unadulterated American V8 might at your fingertips thanks to this GTA 5 mod.
