The Chevrolet Superior was launched in 1923, manufactured by Chevrolet for four years with a different series per year. The 1923 model was known as the Series B, the 1924 model was the Series F, for 1925 it was known as the Series K and the 1926 Superior was known as the Series V. It was replaced in 1927 by the Series AA Capitol.

All Superior models were powered by a 171 cu in (2.8 L) 4-cylinder engine, 26 hp @ 2000 rpm, and shared the 103 in (2,616.2 mm) wheelbase. The cheapest complete model, which was the Superior Roadster, cost $510 in 1926, while the range-topping model, the Superior Sedan, sold for $825. It was also possible to buy a chassis; the Commercial chassis cost $425, while the Express Truck chassis cost $525.

This chassis was shared with other GM products at the time, including Cadillac, Buick, Oldsmobile, Oakland and GMC products. This policy of sharing mechanicals across multiple brand led to the General Motors Companion Make Program in the 1920s. Starting with leadership under Mr. Sloan, GM instituted visual styling changes for each yearly series.
