The all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado is a monster among the crowd of light-duty pickups. The latest generation Chevrolet Silverado presently consists of four available powertrain options for customers. Among those powertrains are the base model, 4.3-Liter V6 engine, the upgraded options include a 2.7-Liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, a hulking 5.3-Liter V8 engine, and last, but not least a 6.2-Liter V8 with Dynamic Fuel Management. Soon, a fifth engine option will be added by General Motors (GM) in the form of a 3.0-Liter inline-six turbo diesel. This new powertrain will be paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission and have auto stop/start technology. All considered General Motors engines are the most potent diesel trucks in the full-size pickup segment, but the goal going forward for GM and Chevrolet is to keep pushing the envelope.

Comparing Powertrains Against Different Brands

The upcoming Duramax inline-six engine aimed at coming out in 2020 will provide 277 horsepower paired with its10-speed automatic transmission. Neither the 2019 Ford F-150’s 3.0-liter V6 diesel with 250 horsepower nor the 2019 Ram 1500’s EcoDiesel with its 240 horsepower, reach even close to the 277 horsepower offered for the upcoming Chevy powertrain. (The Ram EcoDiesel is currently not available yet in 2019 for the latest generation Ram1500.)

When studying at the differences between torque, as known as the accurate measurement of an efficient diesel engine, Chevrolet is no slouch. The GM product will produce a Silverado with an incredible 460 lb-ft of torque available from just 1,500 rpm. This figure is more than Ford’s 440 lb-ft and the Ram’s 420 lb-ft of torque offered in the aforementioned rival pickup engine options. This kind of buzz has made for so much speculation, Chevrolet wound up addressing reports about the upcoming powertrain option.

Chevrolet Stands Behind Their Engineering

Chevrolet was proud to inform their customers, in a rare move commenting on an engine that has not been released. They released a statement to the automotive news collector, CarBuzz, about the upcoming powertrain.

“The all-new, Duramax 3.0L inline-six turbo diesel will deliver an SAE-certified 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, more than any other light-duty, full-size truck diesel available. Dealers and customers can place orders for the efficient, refined diesel and the first customer deliveries begin this summer. We will share more information, including towing capacity and efficiency, in the near future.” – Representative from Chevrolet

We can’t wait to get our hands on the latest Chevrolet engine option, but for those who can’t wait to get their hands on the Chevy pickup of their dreams, we have a large amount of Chevrolet products waiting for a driver to take them to their new home. It starts by heading to Miami Lakes Automall today!

2019 Chevrolet Onix Sedan Announced

An announcement has been made. General Motors has announced the debut of the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Onix sedan in China, and it will debut “very soon.” Also, it’s expected Chevy will announce the new Onix in Brazil in the middle of this year.

At the end of 2018, the new Onix sedan was leaked, and this year it will introduce a new Redline variant. The Redline variant that Chevrolet has been rolling out is an equipment package across its models to better cater to younger demographics. The second-generation Onix will be the sixth Chevrolet model in China that will offer Redline trimmings, and it will join the Cruze, the new Malibu XL, Equinox, the new Monza and Orlando.

“The Onix continues the momentum across Chevrolet’s vehicle lineup that targets the ever-changing and diverse needs of our China customers,” said the general director of Chevrolet Scott Lawson, the automaker’s first venture in China that’s responsible for the Chevrolet, Buick, and Cadillac brands. The Onix will attract those who demand overall performance and value. GM says the 2019 Chevrolet Onix sedan will offer a meaningful exterior design while optimizing space and comfort in the passenger compartment.  

Its “advanced technologies” will provide improved connectivity and efficient performance, traits that are typically not found in its segment. The 2019 Chevrolet Onix will be the first vehicle based on GM’s all-new GEM platform. Previously, GM announced that it would begin launching vehicles on the new architecture this year in China.

The company also revealed the first member of the new family vehicles would be a Chevrolet that meets the needs of Chinese consumers. The vehicle in question can very much be the new Onix. GEM is a car architecture derived from the GM VSS-F platform, but it was developed for specifically low-cost vehicles sold in emerging markets.     

The 2019 Chevrolet Onix will not only exclusive to South America anymore, which is where it has achieved success by becoming the best-selling new car in the region. With the 2019 models, GM wants to expand the success of the Onix nameplate to another 40 developing countries around the world. To carry out its international expansion, the new Onix is set to be manufactured in both China and Brazil.

In Brazil, the new-generation Onix will continue to be manufactured at the GM Gravatai plant. It’s unclear which GM China plant will produce the new Onix. The car will officially premiere at the 2019 Auto Shanghai expo starting in a few weeks.

But for over six years the car manufacturer has been selling another model also named “Chevrolet Onix” in South America. No conclusion has been made on whether the company will discontinue the old Onix once the new one reaches China, or if it will continue to offer both models even though some confusion might be caused. Chevrolet has not commented.

Aside from the teaser pic that’s been circulating online, no other images are showing the vehicle in its full glory. If the teaser is any indication, the sedan/saloon will sport curved air intakes. It will be located at the sides of the front bumper, as well as a sectioned front grille.

Let’s note the change in the naming structure of the sedan variant for the Chinese market. In China, it will be called the Onix while in Brazil, the Onix Sedan is marketed as the Chevrolet Prisma. Second, the second-generation model has undergone a complete overhaul adopting a lot of Chevrolet design including the split front grille and a larger lower portion.  

The new Chevrolet Onix in China will offer two new 3-cylinder engines. The base machine is a 1.3L LI5 naturally-aspirated unit that will deliver 102 horsepower, while the second engine in the higher-end models will be the turbo-charged 1.0L LIV and the motor will be 114 horsepower. There is no information available on the torque.

Testing of the second-generation Onix began in Brazil a few months ago, the hatchback and sedan body styles (as the Prisma) were tested. Maybe the vehicle will be introduced during the second half of 2019, after seven years of dominant market performance. In the Brazilian market, the Onix has been on the led for the best-selling model since August 2015.

Additionally to the Onix, the new GEM (Global Emerging Markets) platform will include a large family of entry-level models with distinct body styles for both Buick and Chevrolet line. Vehicles based in the GEM architecture will be fabricated in Brazil, China, Mexico, and India. The vehicle is expected to be marketed mainly in emerging markets in Asia as well as Latin America.

Best Family Car: 2019 Chevrolet Traverse

The Chevrolet Traverse is on its second year of a significant redesign for 2019, and it continues to garner honors as the roomy and well-equipped family hauler. The Traverse is the family station wagon; it’s a 3-row crossover SUV with available all-wheel drive and seating for up to eight. This vehicle has a lot of pluses for those looking for more than just room.   

FEATURES:

The Traverse’s SmartSlide second-row sear, a standard on the vehicle, makes it easier to get to the third row, which aided by a curbside seat can be slid forward. Teen Driver is also standard in the 2019 Traverse. When you order a Traverse with the new LT Premium Package, Surround Vision, which prevents low-speed back-up tragedies, comes with it.

The vehicle comes with four cameras that provide the driver with a potentially life-saving 360-degree that is used to see around the car. A few models come with more features. The Traverse comes available with a Convenience and Driver Confidence Package which has a power liftgate, an 8-inch color touch screen, a blind-spot warning system and, rear cross-traffic alert.

ENTERTAINMENT:

Chevrolet vehicles allow passengers to stay connected every day as it offers everything from entertainment and safety to navigation and communication. The infotainment system integrates with mobile devices which will enable the driver to focus on the road ahead when driving. Everything from calls, texts, music and more are all at their fingertips with the phone connectivity.

The Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system allows integration and organizes technology; meaning storing phones away while driving but still be entertained and informed on the road. From safety features, like rear-view camera and Teen Driver technology to hotspot connectivity and Bluetooth audio streaming there can be more than one active device. The Chevrolet offers those features and entertainment for driver and passengers to enjoy.    

All Chevrolet Infotainment Systems offer OnStar Turn-by-Turn Navigation with a paid subscription. Additional features are Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System Plus and Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System Premium with Navigation. Both systems feature embedded enhanced voice recognition that alerts to gas stations, food stops and other points of interests.

POWERTRAINS:

The Traverse 2019 has two smooth powertrains options. The standard engine available is a 3.6-liter V6 and a 9-speed automatic transmission. The powerplant, which has 310 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque, feels laid back when driving, which is 350 pounds lighter than the previous version from the 2017 model.

It’s not as efficient as the front-drive V6 model on the highway, going from 26 mpg versus from the 27 mpg in EPA testing. A turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine is still available, but you’ll only find it in the front-wheel-drive RS. Even though the Turbo 4-cylinder puts out 257 horsepower and a 295 lb-ft, it drops the maximum trailering capacity of the 2019 Traverse from 6,000 pounds to 1,500.  

SEATS:

The folding 3-seat rear bench does not face rearward, but it’s more spacious, with enough room and easy third-row access from the curbside. In addition to being able to drive around an entire kid’s basketball team, there’s plenty of storage space for strollers and lawn chairs. There’s plenty of small stowage spots for embellishments, the Traverse display screen and a place hidden beneath the rear cargo floor.   

SAFETY:

When it comes to crash prevention, Traverse doesn’t joke around. The mid-size SUV uses available cameras, ultrasonic sensors, and radar to help passengers lookout for potential dangers and it helps them avoid collisions before they happen. The 2019 Traverse received a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score for safety from NHTSA.

Chevrolet Leads the Way WIth Reliable SUV Models

2019 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban Miami Lakes Automall

Everyday shoppers are ready to spend money on a shiny, new vehicle. Once a vehicle has been identified, customers are quick to research a vehicle they like before they finally decide on making the purchase. What is likely the most important aspect of choosing to opt for one vehicle over another is longevity. A recent study has been made public by iSeeCars.com and looked at vehicles that have 200,000 miles (remarkable longevity) and still run well. Guess what their research found? Two vehicles in their top ten included the Chevrolet Suburban and Chevrolet Tahoe. Ready to learn more about the reasons? Let’s begin.

More On the Longevity Study

With over 13.8 million pre-owned vehicles leaving lots in 2018 alone, customers more than ever want a reliable quality vehicle. The study by iSeeCars.com focused on the model years 1981 through 2018 that have gone over 200,000 miles only. The percentage of vehicles that have reached that high mile count is five percent for the Chevrolet Suburban. The Chevrolet Suburban placed second on the list with the Chevrolet Tahoe placing sixth, as the Tahoe had 3.8 percent of these vehicles sold in 2018 with over 200,000 miles logged.

While the focus was on the number of miles, there was also a focus geographically. The longest-lasting vehicles in the top 25 most dense cities, which identified that in Detroit the Chevrolet Suburban made up 7.5 percent of all cars with over 200,000 miles. Not bad considering Detroit is known as the center of the U.S. automotive industry.

Why It’s Important For A Vehicle to Be Reliable Over the Long Term

Drivers don’t know when they purchase a vehicle when they might end up selling it. Sometimes they end up being owned a lot longer than expected. There are many reasons why owning a vehicle that can last as long as possible. After purchasing a house, a vehicle is the next most important investment a person can make. The vehicles that provide the longest reliability should be considered when making any decision. While all vehicles look and drive great when they are new, to own a vehicle that can hit 200,000 miles traveled on the odometer is the goal. Just for fun, iSeeCars.com said among the pre-owned vehicles sold in 2018, very few hit 300,000 miles. As expected, vehicles don’t last forever. However, 0.2 percent of the Chevrolet Suburban hit that mark.

Both the 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe and 2019 Chevrolet Suburban have up to seating for eight. These SUVs are large and luxurious, but also quite modern with tons of amenities that help drivers and passengers alike to embrace each drive. America’s best-selling full-size SUV in the Chevrolet Tahoe and the remarkable fuel-efficient of the Suburban, a vehicle with a V8 engine at 22 highway, both offer plenty to love. Looking to drive the latest Chevrolet vehicles and see how long they can last?

2019 Chevy Blazer RS

The latest Chevrolet SUV introduced into the family is here with bold, sophisticated styling inside and out. The RS features a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, which makes it the perfect two-row midsize SUV to fuel all of your journeys. Without a doubt, whether it’s a night out on the town or your daily commute, the RS can meet all of your needs.   

The name was first used in a vehicle in 2005, and it’s been revived for this new car platform. The new crossover is new both inside and out. This time around the midsize vehicle is based more on Chevy’s car platform as opposed to it being based on their truck platform.

PERFORMANCE:

The Blazer RS has a more aggressive appearance thanks to its unique elements. The RS-specific items include dual exhaust outlets with rectangular chrome tips and hexagonal black mesh grille with RS badging. Other features are standard to the Blazer but not exclusive, such as the black roof rails, black window trim, and black badging.  

There are 20-inch wheels with 21-inches as an option as well. The “blacked out” theme continues in the interior with the black perforated leather-appointed seats with suede microfiber inserts and red accents. The available engine is the 3.6L V6 LGX engine with a nine-speed automatic transmission making it for 306 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque.    

Included in the Blazer RS are backup camera, airbags, stability control system, tire pressure monitoring system, and a tire inflator kit. In the all-wheel-drive, there is an electrically heated steering wheel, heated front seats, a power programmable liftgate, an automatic rearview mirror, a keyless entry system, and rear parking assist system. The Blazer RS has adjustable sliding rear seats that seat 5.

ENTERTAINMENT:

As for entertainment, front and center in the dashboard is a standard, 8-inch Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system. The Infotainment 3 navigates and is very responsive to taps and swipes. For example, there is a shortcut bar along the bottom of the screen which links back to the home screen and if you tap the 4G LTE bar which quickly jumps to the OnStar Wi-Fi hotspot controls.

A new feature that is subtle for the Infotainment 3 is the ability to register and save individual profiles such as storing radio presets to software preferences to application logins on a per-driver basis. That means Spotify playlist, shortcuts and, addresses can be kept separate from the rest of the divers since multiple driver profiles can be saved. There’s also an available wireless Qi phone-charging pad if you don’t want to plug in.

So how does the 2019 Chevy Blazer do in the gas department? The Blazer’s base engine is EPA-rated at 22/27/24 mpg city/highway/combined, and it’s available only in front-wheel-drive form. The optional V-6 can come with front- or all-wheel drive and the front-drive models are rated at 20/26/22 mpg, while the AWD version is 18/25/21 mpg.

With the Blazer RS being named a “sporty” vehicle it should win over buyers who have been skeptical about switching to an SUV thanks to its responsive handling. Hamodia.com is stating that it’s “fun to drive” just like the front-wheel drive and large sedans automakers are ditching in favor of SUVs. The main competitors to The Blazer are most likely the Honda Passport, Ford Edge and Nissan Murano.   

PEACE OF MIND:

All Blazers come equipped with essential safety features, teen driver tools, LED daytime running lights, OnStar, and a government-mandated rear-view camera. The basic trim levels can be upgraded with a Driver Confidence package that includes blind spot and rear cross traffic monitors, lane change alert, and rear parking proximity alert. Chevrolet offers a three-year, or 36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty on the 2019 Blazer, and coverage on the powertrain is five years or 60,000 miles.

The 2019 Chevy Blazer RS has a starting base price of $40,600 (plus destination fee).

The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Is So Powerful It Does What?

Photo credit: Carscoops

Chevrolet has an interesting dilemma on its hands. The latest details regarding the current production of the eighth-generation Chevrolet Corvette dubbed the C8, has been pushed back again. The reason for the push back? The Corvette is too powerful. Testing has revealed that the latest generation Chevrolet Corvette simply launches ahead so hard and strong that the engine is causing damage to the actual frame and glass engine cover. There’s simply too much power for the chassis given the prototypes are fitted with twin-turbo V8s that are producing upwards of nearly 1,000 horsepower. So what does Chevrolet have in mind? Let’s explore.

Producing Engines That Are Too Strong?

Imagine crafting an engine so strong it simply tears apart the surrounding area of the vehicle. That is essentially what is going on behind the scenes. This news is according to sources close to the situation and Hagerty reporting on the subject. General Motors (GM) has missed two of their deadlines already in regards to the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette release, but this shows the automaker is ensuring the product is fully ready to go. No one wants a bent frame or any issues with a vehicle because it can’t handle its g-forces.

General Motors making sure their product is safe and secure is critical, but just the specifics of the current testing are noteworthy. The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 currently has a powertrain that’s simply too powerful it leads to the structural distortion of the vehicle. Specifically, the engine compartment’s glass hatch would break during testing. The acceleration was labeled frightening so much so that GM reached out to their lawyers about any potential risks they would face for producing and selling a vehicle so powerful and fast.

Making Sure the Product Is Glitch Free As Well

Aside from the adjustments that have to be made to the body and structure of the Corvette, the report goes on to say GM is also still figuring out how to adapt its standardized, global GM electrical system. While engineers are still finalizing the new system, this all-important system will infuse more than 100 interlinked computers on its Computer Area Network (CAN) bus. The design and engineering teams have more work to do to create the Corvette in the image they want.

So, with all this said, when can we expect to see the new 2020 Corvette? Hagerty insists the National Corvette Museum’s 25th birthday in August 2019 will be a good bet. Here’s hoping all the right technology of CAN is produced in time and that the frame is made stronger; we certainly hope to see all the strength of the powertrain is kept intact. Let’s hope this summer involves some good weather and the beautiful purr of a new 2020 Corvette. For those who can’t wait till the fall to drive a new Corvette, we know one place to find the newest Chevrolet sports car today.

2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD Tows More Than the Competition

2020 Chevrolet Silverado Miami Lakes Automall

The latest Chevrolet Silverado HD has increased its towing ability by more than half of its Chevrolet Silverado HD predecessor. With the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado, owners can now haul more and expect greater things thanks to the fine work done by General Motors (GM) and their engineering team. The determination by GM and Chevrolet to push the envelope is apparent. Let us share all the details about the newest and massive Silverado HD. The massive Silverado carries a boxed ladder frame made up of mainly high-strength steel. How does this new HD pickup stand out among the other heavy-duty trucks on the market?

2020 Silverado HD > Competition

So, what caused this massive increase in towing ability? The last few years brought about increased competition among rival brands like Ford and Ram. Today’s Silverado delivers 35,500 pounds of maximum towing capacity, which is more than the 2019 Ram Heavy Duty (35,100) and 2019 Ford Super-Duty (30,000). Chevrolet is ahead of the game thanks to a beefed-up chassis and 10-speed Allison-brand transmission. Improved upon engineering even reached the way the engine is cooled thanks to the large front end design with lots of air intakes and a large 28-inch radiator fan.

Looking for choices? The Silverado HD offers plenty with 22 cab, bed, drivetrain and chassis combinations for owners to sift through; owners can build exactly what makes sense for their line of work and preference. Wheel sizes go from 17 inches through 20 inches. The Silverado HD pickups provide longer truck beds than previously produced. For example, the crew-cab models stretch out 10.4 inches longers and 1.4 inches wider. Improvement can be found everywhere including the most important aspect of the Silverado HD.

Powertrain Options Improved Upon

Owners of the new 2500 and 3500 have the choice of a 6.6-Liter, direct-injected Vortec V8 engine that provides 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque or a 6.6-Liter Duramax V8 turbo-diesel that reaches 445 horsepower and 910 ft-lb of torque. The new base engine is an improvement of the previous 2017 Silverado HD pickup’s base trim engine with its 6.0-Liter V8 engine that provided 360 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque. There was an improvement of 41 horsepower and 84 torque. The strength of the Silverado has always been well-known, but going forward, the strength is ahead of the curve and exactly what owners want out of a truck.

Chevrolet Provides Unparalleled Towing

Chevrolet points out that 90 percent of its heavy-duty truck owners use their vehicles for towing. This is why the brand improved the technology and strength simply defined now as Chevrolet’s Advanced Trailering System. The 2020 Silverado HD provides available cameras that capture up to 15 unique camera views as well as an accessory camera attached to a trailer that allows drivers to behind what they’re towing.

GM was able to lower the HD diesel’s axle ratio from 3:71:1 to 3:42:1 to reduce engine speeds for a more silent, pleasant cabin. The all-new 10-speed coupled with stronger drivetrain components enabling diesel Silverado HDs to optimize their full amount of twist in first gear, unlike the prior models. Additional upgrades to the Silverado HD provide a new active two-speed four-wheel-drive transfer case that allows automatic all-wheel-drive function.

Additional Impressive Features

Chevy looked to improve many different facets of the Silverado HD. One of the latest changes involved adding a standard flush-mounted outlet in the front bumper for the engine-block heater for the diesel and available on the gasoline V8 powertrain. The diesel exhaust fluid tank between the frame rails includes a filler spout and a diesel exhaust fluid gauge in the instrument cluster. A polished interior gains all the power of the latest technology and will help Chevrolet Silverado owners step ahead of the competition.

Chevrolet Silverado HD is J.D. Power’s Most Dependable Model

The Chevrolet Silverado HD has been named J.D. Power’s Most Dependable Model for 2019. Chevrolet, among Lexus and Buick, has been ranked in the top 5 vehicle dependability. It secured the most dependable sizeable heavy-duty pickup category.

This year, the study showed a 4 percent increase on overall dependability for three-year-old models. But there is something that J.D. Power vice president of global automotive Dave Sargent believes will make any brand a contender for more customers. That is valuing customer’s demands and preferences.      

The Chevrolet Silverado HD is the heavy-duty truck that pushes the boundaries when it comes to capability while still offering comfort, high-tech interior for a connected and fun driving experience. Not to worry if you have an older Silverado HD model, it’s just the 2019 version boasts the latest amenities and technologies. Here are some of the features it delivers.

PERFORMANCE:

There are three engine options available for the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD. Included is a 6.0-liter Vortec V8 that either has gasoline or LPG/CNG and the third option is a 6.6-liter V8 Duramax diesel. The 6.0-liter Vortec V8 produces 360 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque when running on gasoline and it is also FlexFuel E85-capable.

All models come with an all-wheel drive or selectable driving modes that you can choose at the time of purchase. There are plug-in hybrids and full-electric powertrains available, as well as non-hybrid vehicles. The 2019 Silverado 2500 HD uses a six-speed automatic transmission with tow/haul mode and Auto Grade Braking to minimize the amount of braking needed while towing or driving downhill.

INTERIOR:

As for the interior, the Silverado HD comes equipped with noise-dampening cabin materials. The triple-sealed doors ensure for a quiet ride with passengers. When it comes to driving there are adjustable pedals, tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, and generally good view for an excellent driving position.

The Diesel Exhaust Brake is an available technology that “uses engine compression to reduce the amount of conventional braking needed while towing or traveling downhill,” according to chevrolet.com. The integrated trailer brake controller features seamlessly integrate with trailer brakes during normal braking and with Trailer Sway Control.

Other safety features are auto grade braking which assists with braking on long downhill grades by initiating transmission downshifts. Silverado uses 4-wheel disc brakes with Duralife Rotors, which help to prevent warping and provide corrosion resistance to help extend rotor life.
