Chevrolet Chevelle was to compete with the similarly large Ford Fairlane and complement the Chevrolet offer with a model that was oriented in size and concept to the popular models from 1955 to 1957. In the model program of the 1960s, the Chevrolet Chevelle 2018 and its luxury version Malibu occupied the middle area between the compact cars Corvair and Nova on the one hand and the large models Impala and Caprice on the other hand.
2018 Chevrolet Chevelle Design
The 2018 Chevelle model range ranged from low-cost sedans and station wagons to powerful coupés and convertibles. The sporting versions were called Chevelle SS and belonged to the Muscle Cars. In the beginning, the Malibu was the luxury version of the Chevelle series, until 1977 the whole series received this name. The chassis of the Chevelle also offered the basis for the 1969 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, which itself became a very successful model. Early design designs show that the Chevelle was originally designed to carry the Nova name plates a name that was then used for the smaller Chevy II series.

2018 Chevrolet Chevelle NASCAR
NASCAR: The Chevelle from 1973 to 1977 was the most successful car in the NASCAR race in the 1970s. The car was so popular and successful in the racing classes that Chevrolet 1975 delivered a new nose that led to today’s aerodynamic cars. The cars dominated the races so much that the Nascar organization prescribed the use of a cover plate for the carburetor for all Chevelle Laguna. Drivers of these cars were: Darrell Waltrip, Junior Johnson, Benny Parsons, Cale Yarborough, Bobby and Donnie Allison, Bobby Isaac, Lennie Pond, AJ Foyt, Ricky Rudd, Dale Earnhardt and the driver Janet Guthrie.
When GM reduced the middle-class models in 1978, the name Chevelle was dropped and the model series only Chevrolet Malibu. From the 3rd generation of 2018 Chevrolet Chevelle, approximately 1,600,000 copies were produced in five years.
