Vehicle Identification Numbers (VIN codes)/GM/VIN Codes

It is the tenth digit that gives you the model year for GM. I've been working at a Chevy dealer for years running codes/vins. For example (my examples only apply to 2001-2015 gm vehicles) Remember 10th digit from the beginning, (left to right). 2001... 1 2002...2 2003...3 .etc . . 2009...9 After 09 the tenth digit was given a letter 2010... A 2011...B 2012...C 2013...D 2014...E 2015...F Etc... We have another 20 years worth of letters Thanks for reading. You can always check your model year by looking in your drivers side door jamb and it will give you model year. If it was assembled in July or later it's probably a model year later than listed.

Platform & Series Codes 1985- Passenger Car edit

GM used a lettered system of automobile platform codes for three decades. These letters were used as the fourth position of the VIN. Though today's GM platforms use Greek characters, they are still encoded with Latin characters in the fourth position. Position five encodes the specific model and trim level of the vehicle.
