What We Know about 2019 Chevy Silverado

The all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado was introduced at an event

We don’t have to speculate much on any rumors concerning the upcoming 2019 Chevy Silverado, the newest pick-up from Chevy. To celebrate over 100 years of Chevy trucks, a helicopter brought the new 2019 Chevy Silverado to the Texas Motor Speedway during the Chevy Truck Centennial event. The truck is to officially debut next month at the North American International Auto Show.

 The 2019 Silverado will be available in eight trims and there will be various engine/transmission options to choose from, providing more options than before. Chevy has also acknowledged they’ll vamp up their technology, offer additional convenience features and improve on the previous year.

 Rumors have it that the 2019 Silverado will offer more engine and transmission options, like the new 10-speed automatic currently found in the 2018 Tahoe and Suburban with the 6.2-liter L86 V-8 with 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. Speculation is that there will also be a range of diesels available.

 Speculation as to the materials used that make up the truck’s bed is unknown, but those details on the Silverado’s specifics, including weight savings from the previous year will be available in January 2018. Some rumors are that the bed will be lined with some new carbon fiber composite. Time will tell, but we’ll know soon.

New Copo Camaro Available for Adults and Kids


Last month, the 2018 COPO Camaro was revealed at the Hot Wheels headquarters and the reveal included a road-ready model for adults and a 2018 Camaro Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary Edition for kids (and maybe adults, too).

Here are the details of the road-ready 2018 COPO Camaro!

  • The engine is a 302 racing engine based on the Camaro SS LT1 engine. The engine is modified for drag racing.
  • This vehicle comes with a short-stroke crankshaft that allows for higher rpm capability.
  • The engine is backed by a ARI TH400 three-speed automatic transmission.
  • Other engine options include a 472 (7-liter) engine and a supercharged 350 (5.7-liter) engine.
  • The supercharged engine shreds the quarter mile in mid 8-seconds at 160 mph.
  • Performance features for COPO models include a solid rear axle system, racing chassis and racing suspension.


So how do you get your hands on a 2018 COPO Camaro? That’s the trick. Chevy is only producing 69 models and people have to register for a chance to purchase the available models. Registrants will be picked at random by a third-party company. Why 69 models? That’s another little piece of history. The COPO Camaro program started in 1969 and that same year there were 69 models ordered by dealers, and since the program started up again in 2012, production has been limited to 69 models.

The interior cabin of the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox caters to drivers of all sizes. For those tall drivers, there is plenty of room in the front of the cabin as well as the rear seats. Entering and exiting the SUV is also incredibly convenient – the step-in height is low enough to the ground for smaller passengers and the doors have wide openings to make entering the vehicle easier. The base trim, the 2018 Chevy Equinox L, is equipped with power windows with rear, driver, and passenger express up and down. Steering wheel controls, driver seat map pocket, and assisted handle for front and rear passengers.

Advanced Safety Features

“The Chevrolet Equinox ramps up its awareness and protection capability with an even broader range of available technologies designed to assist drivers in everyday situations,” said Ray Kiefer, General Motors Active Safety technical fellow. “From daily driving to parking and crash avoidance, it can help the occupants avoid trouble altogether.”   

The 2018 Equinox safety features not only enhance the driver’s awareness while on the road, but they also offer camera-based technologies that can assist the driver to react faster and avoid potential threats. New for the 2018 model year is Surround Vision, a technology that delivers an accurate view of the Equinoxes perimeter. Available on select trims, Surround Vision provides a 360-degree view of the vehicle and gives drivers a more confident approach while parking and backing up. Another advanced safety feature includes StabiliTrak electronic stability control system which helps enhance control especially during emergency maneuvers while adjusting the brakes and engine torque to keep drivers on their intended path.

LISTEN UP, PARENTS! This one’s for you –  Chevy’s Teen Driver program. The Teen Driver programs is a configurable feature that allows parents to customize their teen’s vehicle settings through with a special key fob, and it also provides parents with an in-vehicle report about their teen’s driving habits.

On top of other safety features, the 2018 Chevy Equinox also includes Safety Alert Seat, Forward Collision Alert with following distance indicator, Low-speed Forward Automatic Braking, Lane Assist with Lane Departure Warning, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.


The Equinox engine is packed with a decent amount of power under the hood. The Equinox L is equipped with a 1.5L Turbo engine that delivers 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque that’s paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. This standard engine is also available in 2.0L turbo and 1.6L turbo-diesel with a new 9-speed automatic transmission partnered with the 2.0L turbo. For buyers on the hunt for a bit more turbo power, the Equinox Premier comes standard with a 1.6L turbo diesel engine that delivers 137 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque that’s paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel-drive is also a standard feature with available all-wheel drive as well. Additionally, the AWD system is switchable and enhances the vehicle’s fuel efficiency by disconnecting from the rear axle when it’s not in use or needed.

Chevrolet is Offering Everyone Employee Pricing


Christmas arrived early this year! Imagine walking into a dealer ready to buy a brand new 2017 Chevrolet and automatically qualifying for an employee discount.. sounds awesome right? That’s because it’s true! Still in disbelief? Let’s break it down…

2017 has been a crazy year, so Chevrolet is doing what they can to end the year on a positive note, and that’s offering all customers employee discounts on all Chevrolet models for buyers who take delivery by January 2, 2018. That means all buyers pay what Miami Lakes Chevy employees pay!

From now until the beginning of next year, all customers can purchase any new Chevrolet model and get a huge discount off MSRP, and yes that includes models like the 2017 Motor Trend Car of the Year, the Chevy Bolt EV, as well as the Chevrolet Colorado, which was named the Motor Trend Truck of the Year for two years.

Not sure what Chevy offers but on the market for a new car? Here’s a quick run down of the Chevrolet lineup.


Chevy has a great lineup of cars. The Chevy car lineup ranging from small compact cars like the Chevy Spark and the Chevy Sonic to mid-size sedans like the Chevy Cruze and Chevy Malibu to a full-size sedan like the Chevy Impala to award-winning alternative fuel cars like the Chevy Bolt EV and Chevy Volt.

Sports Cars

There are three different sports cars made by Chevrolet, the Camaro, the Corvette and the SS, and they all pack serious power. The Chevrolet Camaro is a two-door muscle car that is available with a few different engine options. The Chevrolet SS is a four-door sedan that features a powerful 6.2L engine under the hood. The Chevy Corvette is a classic and it can accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 3.7 seconds.

Crossovers and SUVs

In addition to behemoths like the Chevy Suburban and Chevy Tahoe, Chevys SUV lineup also includes the Chevy Trax, all-new Chevy Equinox and Chevy Traverse. While all five Chevy SUVs are different from one another, they all offer spacious cabins, towing capabilities and modern tech.


With 100 years of manufacturing trucks under their belt, Chevy has an excellent variety of trucks. The  Chevy Colorado is one of the most versatile trucks made by Chevy because it offers off-roading and towing capabilities, but it’s a little smaller than a light-duty or heavy-duty truck so it has a great fuel economy. Buyers looking for a bigger truck have the option of the light-duty Chevy Silverado 1500 or heavy-duty Chevy Silverado 2500 or 3500.
