Having trouble figuring out what to do when it comes to holiday car shopping? Why not make it holiday truck shopping? There are more choices than ever for pickups, but few offer as much for their customers as the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. The completely redesigned Silverado 1500 has more cargo volume than its predecessor with increased length and more capabilities than ever. The added luxuries for the higher trims and overall increased aerodynamics are a welcome change for customers. It’s thanks to all these changes that the Silverado is being rewarded with accolades by the people and sites like AutoGuide, which help to keep their readers informed.

“The Chevrolet Silverado brings a lot to the table in Truck Land. The new transmission, the truck’s refinement, and its long list of clever features are all very impressive,” says Jodi Lai, Editor-in-Chief of AutoGuide.com.

Popular and Powerful

To give an idea of why the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is better than the competition, the fans provided more votes for the Chevrolet product over the likes of the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 and the GMC Sierra. With all the votes cast, AutoGuide.com reached out and provided a $500 Amazon gift card, given to a random fan that had cast their vote. For those looking to be rewarded, take a hint from the winner of AutoGuide.com’s 2019 Reader’s Choice for Truck of the Year and step into the powerful, sophisticated 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Just how powerful is this Chevy pickup?

Powertrain Options and Towing Capacities

For the impressive 2.7-Liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 provides 7,200 pounds of maximum towing capacity. The upgraded 4.3-Liter V6 is even stronger with a maximum towing capacity of 8,000 pounds. The middle tier powertrain offers quite an increase up to 11,000 pounds in the 5.3-Liter V8 with Active Fuel Management (AFM). AFM is able to turn off cylinders when driving to help save gas as well as remain strong when needed. This strong V8 engine is also available with Dynamic Fuel Management (DFM) that can help save even more gasoline for customers with its ability to shut off all cylinders, rather than only some of them with the ARM technology.

Chevrolet’s Dynamic Fuel Management is special and a prize for owners hoping to retain gas like never before. The DFM V8 engine hits 11,600 pounds of maximum towing capacity and it’s only topped by the 6.2-Liter V8 engine with DFM, capable of hauling 12,200 pounds. Incredibly strong and capable of good gas mileage hitting 17 city and 23 highway mpg, this Silverado 1500 has earned votes for all the right reasons. The choice of the readers was clear and the perks are plentiful as to why it was their pick for Truck of the Year.

The All-New 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Awaits You

Chevrolet has given a restored look to their superior Silverado 1500 pickup. This comes on the heels of General Motors showcasing redesigned Chevy and GMC pickups in 2018 to great success. The vastly improved 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT provides plenty of trim levels and a bevy of attractive options. How do six powertrains and eight unique trims sound? More than excellent! The question is which trim supplies the most for a driver’s needs? With various additions and available features for the new Silverado 1500, let’s get into what options might make the most sense among all the trims.

Step Into the Silverado

The Silverado begins with the Work Truck trim, powered by a standard 4.3-Liter V6 six-speed engine equipped with Active Fuel Management. Drivers that need a strong and durable ride for work, this is that solid option with its 7,400 towing capacity and solid handling. The larger 5.3-Liter V8 engine is available for this base trim. The Custom and Custom Trail Boss also come with the 4.3-Liter V6 engine and carry the same Active Fuel Management standard but can upgrade to the later 5.3-Liter V8 engine.

More Powertrain Options

The 2.7-Liter turbo 4-cylinder engine provides a fuel economy of 20 city mpg and 23 highway mpg. This powertrain offers more torque than the base engine and is a whole second faster from a 0-60 mph standpoint (6.8 seconds). This powerful engine is only available in the LT and RST trims. By comparison with other trucks, the Ford F-150 carries lower mpg than the Silverado, and the Silverado matches the Ram 1500 3.6-Liter V6 mild hybrid engine in terms of highway mpg. The 310 horsepower and 348 lb-ft of torque in the turbo is a strong engine offering 13% more efficiency with 14% more torque than the 4.3-Liter V6 engine 2018 Silverado. The cost to get the 2.7-Liter Turbo in the latest Silverado begins at $38,395 MSRP (plus destination fee).

The LT and RST trims can hold the 5.3-Liter V8 paired with 8-speed transmission with Dynamic Fuel Management or the 3.0-Liter Diesel Inline-6 paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. The great feature with the eight and 10-speed automatic transmissions are their unique damper that lowers vibrations from the cylinder-deactivating gas engines and the non-deactivating diesel. Dynamic Fuel Management allows every lone cylinder to be turned off as needed while driving. The Active Fuel Management does not reach every cylinder or allow for every cylinder to be closed, but rather works in groups. The difference is the smoothness factor, but a chip inside the Silverado spreads out the requirements for various cylinders to be used or not.

“The new Silverado 2.7L Turbo delivers impressive performance and fuel efficiency. It’s fun to drive every day — quick from the start, and pulling hard under acceleration. With up to 23 mpg on the highway, the truck is efficient while still offering plenty of capability to tackle weekend projects and trips to the lake.” said Tim Asoklis, Silverado chief engineer.

Turbo-diesel Anyone?

The 3.0-Liter turbodiesel inline-6 engine might be the best choice depending on the needs of the customer. This powertrain includes the Dynamic Fuel Management and runs smooth. Paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission and available in early 2019, this will be a hot topic powertrain when partnered with the Silverado. Other powertrain options include the 6.2-Liter V8 that boasts the 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque; the strongest among the 2019 Silverado line-up. Keep in mind, the choice of the powertrain is different than what makes up the vehicle inside. Let’s look over some of the options that come in the higher trims.

Silverado 1500 Facts

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado RST includes an upgrade over the LT model’s cloth seating and includes the power-release tailgate. The LT Trail Boss carries a 2-inch lift kit standard with the LT Trail Boss trim and offers several terrain modes to choose from (like if an owner wanted to go off-road or weather conditions making driving difficult). The starting price of the LT Trail Boss is $49,795 MSRP (plus destination fee). For those that want to have a larger infotainment screen, the LTZ carries an 8-inch screen, rather than the standard 7-inch screen.

The most luxurious High Country trim carries the 5.3-Liter V8 eight-speed with Dynamic Fuel Management with options of both the 3.0-Liter Diesel Inline-6 10-speed and the 6.2-Liter V8 engine as well. The High Country includes standard heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. A nice feature that owners will love is the wireless charging capabilities and included Apple CarPlay and Android Auto features. Leather-appointed seating with a two-tone color scheme seals the deal for an amazing interior. The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4WD High Country Crew Cab begins at $57,795 MSRP (Plus destination fee). Now the only question is which trim and powertrain to try? We know a place to find out which one is most appealing.

2019 Chevrolet Colorado RST Miami Lakes Automall

Chevrolet Has More Mid-Size Pickup Options On the Way

2019 Chevrolet Colorado RST Miami Lakes Automall

Ever wanted to own a mid-size Chevrolet pickup truck? For Chevy fans expecting more mid-size pickup options, the wait is over with the 2019 Colorado lineup. Chevrolet has heard the requests and will now offer two brand new trims and focus their attention on their latest off-road beast, the Colorado ZR2 off-road Bison. General Motors will emphasize their pickup options as being incredible (they are) with incredible prices (affordable and attractive) for the new Bison ZR2 and both of the new special editions of the Chevrolet Colorado, the Z71 Trail Runner and the street-focused RST. All of these options are apart of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado lineup that has made up a large portion of sales as Americans have a growing obsession with the mid-size pickup truck segment.

“The success of Colorado helped reignite the midsize truck segment, which increased 27 percent from 2015 to 2017. It changed what customers expected from a midsize truck, brought new customers to Chevrolet and has inspired competitors to follow Chevy’s lead,” said Sandor Piszar, Chevrolet’s Director of Truck Marketing.

Pricing For the Latest Chevrolet Pickup Options

General Motors has listed the ZR2 Bison, with the V6 engine and extended cab, at just $47,050 MSRP (plus destination fee). Crew cab models start at $48,650 MSRP (plus destination fee).
The Colorado ZR2 Bison is set to hit dealer showrooms with a sticker price of $48,045 MSRP (destination fee) for the gasoline-powered Extended Cab truck. This represents a $5,750 increase from the standard ZR2 in the same body style, but offers much more in the way of exhilaration and drivability. To gain the four-door option, owners can expect a slight raise of $1,600 to that price for either the extended or crew cab version of the ZR2.

What About Those Two New Trims?

Available for consumers in a new Z71 Trail Runner package, this package adds the ZR2’s skid plates and rock sliders with a fresh set of 17-inch wheels and 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac tires. Drivers will embrace the bold look of the blacked-out CHEVROLET grille first shown on the Bison. Not quite the Bison in terms of its off-road prowess, but definitely aggressive and capable of handling adventure for owners.

Both the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and 2019 Chevrolet Colorado will offer the available RST trim. This package will be grouped as a mid-grade trim that begins at $32,195 MSRP (plus destination fee). The RST comprises the color-keyed exterior gear and large 20-inch wheels. The $21,495 base model 2WD truck comes with a six-speed manual transmission and is a solid option.

Handle the Off-Road With A Pickup Unlike Any Other

Fans of the Bison know Chevrolet produced an off-road champion with their Colorado ZR2 Bison, an off-road powerhouse made in a detailed collaboration with aftermarket house American Expedition Vehicles (AEV). The 2019 Chevrolet ZR2 Bison is off-road ready with six skid plates, 31-inch Goodyear Duratracs, a snorkel, heavy-duty bumpers and even includes an optional diesel powertrain. And that’s just the start!

Similar to the standard ZR2, the Bison rests on a track that is 3.5 inches wider than the entry Colorado. The ZR2 Bison carries locking electronic differentials, 3.42 rear axle ratio, and a two-inch suspension lift with Multimatic DSSV dampers capable of handling bumpy, less traveled roads with ease. Few vehicles on the market are capable of taking owners on an adventure right out of the gate like the Bison can. Between all these new options, 2018 has been a banner year for Chevrolet pickup line-up and will continue in 2019.

The Previous Generation Silverado Is Sticking Around

Photo credit: Chevrolet

For those who have not yet test-driven the previous-generation Chevrolet Silverado, they will have more time to decide on getting one. Chevrolet will remain making the prior generation pickup throughout the 2019 calendar year. The stock of previous generation Chevy pickups will continue to be produced alongside the brand new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado that is now available for purchase. So what are the reasons behind having both and what are the differences? Let’s start by breaking down the plans for the older-generation Chevrolet Silverado.

Plans For the Previous Generation Silverado

Automotive News reports that Chevrolet will produce the older truck, named internally as the K2, and then they will phase out the truck gradually over 2019. Chevrolet CFO Dhivya Suryadevara informed Automotive News that crew cab models will be the first to end its production, succeeded by the double cab models and then eventually the regular cab versions in the second half of 2019.

The new generation Silverado crew cab models, which started assembly in Fort Wayne, Indiana earlier in 2018, and the double cab models began production in October 2018. A Chevrolet production plant in Silao, Mexico, will be ready to produce pickups by January and will launch production of the regular cab models simultaneously with crew cabs.

General Motor’s Oshawa, Ontario plant in Canada creates the T1 double cab bodies and then exports them to Fort Wayne to finalize and complete the pickup’s assembly. This process is known by those in the company as the “Oshawa shuttle,” the method decreased how long the process takes, giving General Motors the ability to make a target number of trucks required to support a new vehicle launch and provide dealerships all over a chance to be stocked properly with the Silverado.

Why Make Them Both Together?

While the previous edition of the Silverado will be sold side-by-side by the latest and greatest Chevrolet Silverado, this doesn’t mean that the new generation Silverado isn’t that spectacular (it is) or that the previous generation pickup didn’t sell well (it has) as they both have their fans. The General Motors approach is similar to what Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is doing with their single cab version of the Ram 1500, selling both the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 with their retitled 2018 Ram 1500 as an ever-so-slightly refreshed 2019 Ram 1500 “Classic”.

While General Motors does not provide their sales numbers monthly, a quarterly report will have to do to showcase how great a decision this move is later on. How will the Silverado fair? Time will tell, but having choices is always a plus for consumers. However, the difference between both generations shows that the latest Silverado is definitely superior to the prior generation.

The Difference Between The Newest Silverado and Previous Silverado

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado is way more convincing and capable than the previous Silverado. New components and a new frame go along with a redesigned interior. The new 2019 Chevy Silverado carries multiple powertrains that have improved their fuel economy from the previous model year. A 5.3-Liter V8 eight-speed automatic and 6.2-Liter V8 with 10-speed automatic transmission both allow more than a 5 percent improvement in city fuel economy, hitting 17 mpg and an improved 23 highway mpg. Silverados with the four-wheel drive and a 6.2-Liter V8 engine gain a fuel economy rating of 16 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway.

Two more powertrain options are set to arrive before long, the 2.7-Liter Turbo and Duramax 3.0-Liter Turbo-Diesel engine, but the fuel efficiency has not been announced yet. The maximum towing capacity has improved by 500 pounds to 12,200 pounds when powered by the 6.2-liter V8 with av available Max Trailering Package, and there’s also an increase in payload capacity up by 14 percent. Not to mention, the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado starts at just $29,795 MSRP (plus destination fee). The 2019 Silverado production is set to expand and include the powerful Duramax 3.0-Liter inline-six turbo diesel LM2 engine by early 2019.

Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Configurator Build

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Configurator is Completely Customized

Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Configurator Build

Are you ready for your own 2019 Chevrolet Silverado? An icon of the automaker, this pickup truck has made a name for itself over the last 100 years. The Chevrolet Silverado even got a special Centennial Edition in 2017, commemorating 100 years of Chevy pickup trucks. 100 years, and the good news still keeps pouring in. For one thing, Chevrolet has introduced a special edition for the 2019 model year that literally give us goosebumps – the 2019 Chevy Silverado Trail Boss Z71 turned into the Chevrolet Hennessey Goliath. Now, with the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado heading to dealerships, consumers can finally build their own.

Building Your 2019 Chevrolet Silverado

Although shipped out, the 2019 Chevy Silverado is currently being delivered in low quantity (as of November 8, 2018). Dealership lots will receive more as orders are placed, but for now, enjoy the thought of building one. Known as the “all-new” Silverado, being in its fourth generation for 2019, the configurator (bit.ly/2DtM9y1) has been designed to show off some of the new features and available options, like modern technology or an off-road package.

Although the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado has a starting MSRP of $28,300 (plus destination fee), the first build to pop up in the configurator is for $49,795 (plus destination fee). This will give consumers an idea of the differences something as simple as the cab size, drivetrain, or engine can make, before even a trim is chosen. The default setup is a double cab with a standard bed, four-wheel drive, and the 5.3-liter EvoTec V8 engine with Dynamic Fuel Management (DFM). Changing either of these will show the consumer the new net price in the top right in real-time.

Introducing the 2019 Chevy Silverado: the Unmatched Pickup Champion

Photo credit: Chevy

With the half-ton, full-size pickup segment, there are few trucks that stand out. Right at the top of the list for most buyers is the all-new 2019 Chevy Silverado. For simple reasons, there’s only one vehicle that offers the Z71 package that includes the Chevrolet-certified 2-inch suspension lift kit, Rancho off-road shocks, and 33-inch all-terrain tires mounted on beautiful 18-inch aluminum wheels with a locking differential. What else can owners of the 2019 Chevy Silverado expect? Let’s get right into that.

The 2019 Chevy Silverado Is Greatly Enhanced

For those that have driven prior editions of the half-ton, they will notice this all-new 2019 Silverado has become lighter, yet larger. Chevrolet shaved off 90 pounds from the frame with the added aluminum and high-strength steel added. Aside from that, there are obvious upgrades to the overall aerodynamics with a sleek, sturdy look. There’s also the power that has been added to make the Chevy Silverado scary strong.

The 2019 Chevy Silverado provides an epic array of engine options like the 5.3-Liter V8, the 6.2-Liter V8 and the 3.0-Liter turbo diesel inline 6-cylinder engine. With all V8 engines offered by the Silverado including the Dynamic Fuel Management System, drivers can count on improved gas mileage in this new 2019 Chevy pickup. The Dynamic Fuel Management system can shut off between one and as many as seven cylinders to help conserve fuel with the 6.2-Liter powertrain option being paired with the 10-speed automatic transmission and standard start/stop technology that also adds to improved fuel economy results. The upcoming 2.7-Liter Turbo and Duramax 3.0-Liter Turbo-Diesel engine gas mileage have not been released as of yet.

What Is Stopping Anyone From Getting Into the Silverado?

With sharp sides, an upright grille and the look and design of a futuristic vehicle, the 2019 Chevy Silverado is impressive from the exterior. The new Durabed truck bed made by Chevy is made of high-strength steel and can handle nearly any job with no fear of breaking or denting the tough surface in the 2019 Silverado box. Inside, the interior is stacked with improved amenities like a larger storage capacity and dramatic changes like the stain-resistant finish that helps resist dye transfers from new jeans for the optional leather trim. The standard cloth seating in the base trim has been prepped with an antimicrobial dirt repellent finish to help your interior stay clean. These are just some of the nice features that place the Chevy Silverado ahead of the competition.

Drive Chevy Everywhere You Need to Go

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado is way more powerful and capable than the previous Silverado. An increase of 500 pounds to 12,200 pounds of maximum towing capacity, there’s also an increased payload up to 14 percent more as well. There is no stopping the capabilities of the 2019 Silverado. Even better than the strength of the all-new Silverado provides is the price. Owners won’t have to break the bank to drive one at $29,795 MSRP (plus destination fee) for the base model Work Truck. For those that want to get started driving this strong pickup, there’s a place to drive one right now.

What Vehicle Should Be Your Teen Drivers First?


Photo credit: TenneySchool

The holidays are coming up and now is when many parents may want to start planning ahead for their teenager to get a car of their own. Whether that vehicle is new or pre-owned is a decision, but we hope to make that choice easier. Among many other choices, parents will have to make sure they provide a safe vehicle for their teenager that’s also fun and modern. Let’s go over some of our very own considerations a parent should make with any new driver as well as research conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

Buying New or Pre-Owned?

Without a doubt, this is the hardest choice. Many parents will want to supply their kids with only the best, but giving the keys to a new car while the parents drive an older vehicle should hardly seem fair. Consider buying a new vehicle for yourself as a hard-working parent and handing over the older vehicle to your new driver. Helping them with any remaining payments and allowing them to work towards paying it off will allow them to learn what it means to have to earn things aka parenting 101. After all, this way everybody wins!

The likelihood of a teen driver getting into an accident is almost impossible to avoid, and if the current vehicle a parent is driving is suitable for them, surely it should be safe enough and less expensive to repair if the vehicle is damaged. At Miami Lakes Automall, we can help supply the parents with a new vehicle to replace the hand-me-down and matches their preferences and accommodates their respective needs. Of course, there’s the other argument – what if my teenager’s pre-owned vehicle breaks down? It’s more likely they will get into a fender-bender than their vehicle will just suddenly break down.

Pros of Buying A New Vehicle For A Teenager

Texting and driving will almost certainly happen once a teen driver is on the road alone, so a modern vehicle might make sense. Today’s features include hands-free phone use with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, whereas a used vehicle might not carry the modern technology that could help lower a parent’s heart rate. Being able to know that their teen will be able to use the latest tech and not be a distracted driver, as well as make them safer with the latest safety technology, is good for a parent’s health. Lane-Change Assist and Lane-Keep Assist technology have become standard in many vehicles over the past several years, which is perfect for new drivers who might not be comfortable driving on highways or on unfamiliar roads. There’s no argument against parents wanting the best for their deserving child, except for when it comes to the IIHS and practical research that argues for getting an older and larger vehicle.

Why You Should Buy A Pre-Owned Vehicle For Your New Driver

Smaller new vehicles might cost less but do not provide the best results for new drivers. Among the car list made by the IIHS for teen drivers, midsize cars or larger vehicles that cost $10,000 or less are on the list. The IIHS evaluates passenger vehicles of all sizes for their TOP SAFETY PICK awards, and the larger the vehicle, the greater the protection it can offer.

“Teen drivers are at greater risk, due to immaturity and inexperience behind the wheel.If you’re riding in one of the smallest vehicles on the road, you’ll be at a disadvantage in a crash with almost any other vehicle around you. ” says Jessica Cicchino, IIHS Vice President for Research.

We recommend coming in for a test-drive of our latest Chevrolet vehicles like a 2019 Chevrolet Cruze, fuel efficient and spacious. A new Chevrolet Malibu is another option for the perfect starter vehicle for a teenage driver, which we’ll be happy to show off.

Start Your Search For Your Teenager at Miami Lakes Automall

Our professional staff will help with any buying, selling or leasing options to help you drive away with the vehicle you’ve always wanted. Our sales staff help go over any of the questions you have before you make your choice. For your teenage driver, we have a whole lineup of new vehicles and high-quality pre-owned vehicles that are second to none at Miami Lakes Automall.

For those looking for a tune-up, repair or any work done on their current vehicle. Our knowledgeable service team is here to help seven days a week, including Sundays from 9 am to 3 pm. With a simple service appointment, we can get started on ensuring your vehicle is serviced in a timely fashion. Come to Miami Lakes Automall, located at 16600 NW 57th Ave in Miami Lakes, Florida today!

Chevrolet Introduces New Small Block V8 ZZ6 EFI Engine

Photo credit: Chevrolet

Chevrolet has a surprise for fans of horsepower in the form of an aftermarket V8 engine. The new ZZ6 EFI engine was featured under the hood of a classic 1967 Chevrolet C/10 pickup truck at the 2018 SEMA show in Las Vegas. With upgraded components that increase the power to 418 horsepower and new electronically controlled fuel injection support, the ZZ6 EFI takes a modern approach of V8 engine capabilities. The engine is small and compact, a part of small block Chevy engines, but provides impressive power to the tune of 418 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. Quite impressive, Chevrolet.

More On the ZZ6 EFI

The only catch with this new engine is the cost. We’re not sure what Chevrolet will charge for it, but we do know that Chevrolet brought 30 crate engines to Las Vegas. Chevrolet hopes to gain attention from the vehicle modifiers that are the most enthusiastic customers of these crate engines. The custom hot rod and modern restoration companies are going to be clamoring to get their hands on this latest small block V8 engine with its new technology. Pickup truck buyers are more likely to buy aftermarket parts and accessories, like the ZZ6 EFI, more so than any other vehicle owner. Upgrades are approximately amounting to 29 percent of total vehicle-accessory sales, which is the highest amount across the automotive industry.

The C/10 pickup displayed at SEMA containing the ZZ6 EFI carried significant modifications that included 20-inch wheels, a lowered suspension and custom Chevy bumpers. There was also a restored 1978 K10 Silverado pickup that held a L96 big block V8 crate engine. These are two impressive old-school vehicles that have the latest Chevrolet engines inside of them, providing a modern retro appeal that can only be found in custom concepts. That’s what makes events like SEMA so fun for both automakers and those invited to attend.

A Rich History of Powertrains

For over 63 years, Chevrolet small block engines have paved the way for strength and power. From the 1955 265 CID to the latest 2018 ZZ6 EFI engine, Chevrolet has built trust among fans and critics alike. When looking for the Chevrolet dealership to go to and trust, there’s no selection or customer care better than the Miami Lakes Automall experience.

2019 Chevrolet Camaro Changes Miami-Lakes Automall

New Changes To Chevrolet Vehicles Including Camaro and Cruze

The Chevrolet Camaro has long been a favorite amongst sport car fans for generations since debuting in 1966. While the competition has always been there with rival brands like the Ford Mustang, Chevrolet has always measured its success competing against itself. General Motors, the makers of the latest 2019 Chevrolet Camaro have taken measures to switch up the grille after the initial response to the original grille was poorly received. By not measuring against other cars and listening to what the Chevrolet fan base was saying, General Motors has taken the steps in the right direction. Let’s talk about all the changes and upgrades now offered for the latest Chevrolet Camaro.

So What Changes Took Place?

Chevrolet listened to the feedback to address the grille that had a long, black plastic beam that stretched across the grille with the Chevy bowtie emblem right in the middle. The emblem moved from the front bumper beam to the upper section of the grille, and the grille itself was changed from the black plastic rim to match the same body color as the vehicle – left up to the owner’s choice. Supplementary changes were made like attaching some style to the carbon-fiber fuel-filler door and adding black Camaro badges. A black rear wing and a lush elongated front look warrant attention like few other vehicles on the road can match.

New Changes For 2019 Chevrolet Camaro

Chevrolet is moving the Camaro series ahead with tech upgrades and striking body color paint options; Satin Steel Gray, Shadow Gray Metallic, Riverside Blue Metallic, and the most striking Shock Yellow. The Camaro Shock paint color also comes with satin black mirror caps, a spoiler, and a second-generation ground effect kits with 20-inch 5-split spoke satin black wheels. Piercing new LED headlamps and the taller, newly sculpted hoods provide that shocking exterior appearance. The interior has a modern approach to the infotainment system with a standard 7.0-inch touchscreen and available 8.0-inch touchscreen, a refined cockpit with seat bolsters that include available RECARO seats, heated and ventilated front seats, and a leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel.

Chevrolet Cruze To Receive Updates?

Ahead of the Brazilian debut at the 2018 Sao Paulo International Motor Show, a brand new Chevrolet Cruze SS concept was introduced, known as the Sport6 in Brazil. With a 1.4-Liter Turbo I4 Ecotec LE2 engine that nets drivers 300 horsepower, the Cruze SS concept also has a unique set of 20-inch wheels and 235-section rubber tires that provide the gift of fantastic traction and a performance-optimized suspension. The Cruze SS concept was also the benefactor to new front bucket seats, a new steering wheel, and new driver pedals. This concept, as well as the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro, will make their public debut in November at Sao Paulo’s International Motor Show. We can’t wait, and for those that can’t wait either, the Chevrolet dealership that has the latest Chevy vehicles is ready for you at Miami Lakes Automall.
