What Is the VIN Number?

When your Chevy Silverado is manufactured, it is assigned a Vehicle Identification Number that is a 17-digit code that includes letters and numerals to identify the vehicle year, make, model, trim level, features and more – like a vehicle fingerprint. Vehicles with a VIN Number that is less than 17 characters were manufactured prior to 1981.

Where To Find Your Vehicle VIN Number

Are you looking for the VIN Number on your car, truck or SUV? The VIN Number is located in two primary locations – on the driver’s side dashboard right by the windshield that can be easily read from the outside and on the driver’s side door frame where the door latches. Additional places you can find a VIN Number include your auto insurance policy, the vehicle title and the vehicle registration.
