1989-1991 R-30 Crew Cab. I wonder what the name of the trim was for these trucks. I know that Custom Deluxe was no longer the name, but that's about it :think:

Good question Ford Guy. Perhaps they went along with the naming scheme of the GMT400 trucks? If you look on the c-pillar of the cab, there appears to be some sort of name badge. I would like to point out,though, that the name switched from 30 to 3500 (it says on the front doors).

Can you provide info or proof about the name change and what year it happened? Not trying to say I don't believe you but I would rest easier with proof as I myself have not been able to find anything concrete. Especially since other members (Neptune and tonkatracker) have stated that R-30 (or V if 4WD) is the correct name.

I know that the GMC equivalent did follow the GMT400 trims by having the trims of SL and SLT. So Chevrolet is probably the same.

By the way, if the name really is "R-3500," don't forget to put the dash in between.

The proof is in Stronghold's second and third thumbnails. Although somewhat blurry, the badge on the front doors say 3500. Also, below is a picture I found of a 1989 model on Car Domain.

And another one I found on Goolge... Just like you, I wanted to be sure lol.

Well I meant documentation. I know the badge is there but all it says is "3500." Was the actual name "R-3500" because I can't find anything on it.

Sorry, Ford Guy, I misunderstood what part you were questioning. The main thing that I am going on is an Edmunds.com article. That's the best proof I can dig up at this time. If I am wrong, someone please show me a better source of info for these trucks. I don't mind swallowing my pride if it means I will be correct lol.

An excerpt from the article: "A long-awaited redesign of GM's fullsize pickups took place for 1988. The short-lived "R" and "V" prefixes (except on the Crew Cab, which used these letters until 1992) were replaced by the more traditional C and K naming system, though now these were placed in front of 1500 (half-ton models) 2500 (three-quarter-ton models) and 3500 (one-ton models) numbers instead of the former 10, 20 and 30 designations."

Thanks a lot cieraguy, I hadn't seen that article before. So it appears that the 1987-1988 models had the R/V-10/20/30 names while the 1989-1991 models had the R/V-3500 name (as the older style was only kept for one-ton models). But I wonder if the GMC equivalent also had the same designation? Or was it just C/K for those? That would be good to find out :think:

Do you want to say, that lineup for pickups were different? Brochure for Suburban lists only Scottsdale and Silverado trim levels.

Indeed, the utilities (Suburban, Blazer) sometimes didn’t get all of trim levels. Blazer for example never got Cheyenne Super. For a time, it was also not available with the top-of-the-line luxury Silverado trim.

Cheyenne and Cheyenne Super were introduced for 1971; with Cheyenne Super being discontinued for 1975. Cheyenne would remain until 1981. Cheyenne was later reintroduced either for 1988 or 1989 (don’t remember off the top of my head which model year) as the base/mid-range trim.
