For 2021 Chevrolet Will Have A More Distinct Look

The 2021 Chevrolet Colorado is getting a face-lift as the pickup truck goes under the knife for the 2021 model year. The revisions to the front and rear end include a new bow-tie badge on the grille and the word “Chevrolet” embossed across its tailgate. Some designs are different for the ZR2. The truck’s WT, LT, and Z71 trims have a new grille and a lower fascia design.       

The Colorado model features flow-through lettering on the grille and bowtie. The badging on the ZR2 blends the grille into the front bumper, and it compliments the ZR2 nicely. The grille and badging are great for setting the vehicle apart from other truck models.

The ZR2 exterior adds tow hooks, which complement the lengthy list of off-road-minded features. For 2021, the Colorado vehicle has front and rear electronically locking differentials, a skid plate to protect the underbody, and a 2.0-inch lift and 3.5-inch full track. The wider track is standard to the Colorado.      

For 2021, the Colorado’s grille loosely resembles the full-size counterpart. The details on the Chevy’s lower fascia are hard to see, but it looks very similar to the one on today’s model. The models having a similar fascia will give it familiarity that buyers will definitely notice.  

The lineup for the Colorado will now feature a more significant difference between the trims. There’s a new color addition to the exterior paint color, and that’s the “Sand Dune Metallic” paint color, which will be available as an option on the Z71 and ZR2 models. We can only imagine how much better it’ll look, the dustier it gets. 

“We’ve sold 520,000 Colorado pickups in five years through a relentless, foot-on-the-gas approach to product and feature updates,” said director of marketing for Chevrolet Trucks, Bob Krapes. “With its new-look front end and tailgate, Colorado will now have a more aggressive appearance to match its award-winning capability.” The new-look could benefit the sales on the Colorado, but that’s just speculation for right now. 

Chevrolet hasn’t said anything about what’s under the hood of the Colorado, but enthusiasts have their theories. Many believe that what’s under the hood will be the current crop of powertrains to carryover. According to mortor1.com, it will include today’s 186-hp turbodiesel 2.8-liter inline-four, 200-horsepower 2.5-liter inline-four, and 308-hp-liter V6 engine.

The 2021 Chevrolet Colorado made its debut on October 10th at the 2019 Method Race Wheels Laughlin Desert Classic in Laughlin, Nevada. Pricing remains a bit of a mystery, but Chevrolet has stated that the updated mid-size pickup will go on sale in 2020. So those who want the updated mid-size pickup won’t have to wait long.

Chevrolet has some special edition Silverado 1500 pickups coming soon. Two unique packages are being released, the return of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Midnight and Rally editions, first shown at the State Fair of Texas. The 2020 Silverado 1500 Midnight Edition has an all-black theme complete with its blacked-out 18-inch wheels, exhaust tips, doorsteps, badges, and a black grill. The Midnight Edition will be available for the LT Trail Boss as well as the Custom Trail Boss trims. The 2020 Silverado is already an off-road capable pickup, but this appearance package adds a solid and defined look to the latest 1500. Let’s go over the differences between these two packages returning to the Silverado 1500 line-up. 

Inside the Silverado Midnight Edition

Under the hood of the Silverado LT Trail Boss Midnight Edition, owners gain the 6.2-Liter V8 powertrain that equips 420 horsepower and a solid 460 lb-ft of torque. The engine is paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission and adds LED headlamps with dark bezels and stand daytime running lights. If owners opt for the Customer Trail Boss Midnight Edition, the choice of two powertrain options includes the 5.3-Liter V8 engine that carries a six-speed automatic transmission or they can opt for the larger 6.2-Liter V8 engine tied to the 10-speed automatic transmission. The Midnight Edition is a sleek looking package that has defined look customers hope to secure. The other Special Edition trim is equally as impressive with a wider color scheme for the body.

Everything About the Rally Edition

In regards to the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Rally Edition, owners looking for a modern urban appearance can find the special edition for the Custom and RST trims. Multiple bodycolor choices are offered included Red Hot, Silver Ice Metallic, Summit White or black. The Silverado RST and the Rally Edition have the body-colored grille with black stripes on the tailgate and over the hood. Black badging, black bowties, black exhaust tips with black 22-inch wheels. The Custom Rally Edition has black 20-inch wheels. Each Rally edition offers the 2.7-Liter turbo-four powertrain paired to an eight-speed automatic with the RST Rally Edition that can have the 5.3-Liter V8 or 6.2-Liter V8 engine. Thinking about adding the new 2020 Silverado 1500? Don’t worry about where to go to find them.

Bolt Miami Lakes Automall

Future Plans For Chevrolet Brand’s Upcoming Electric Vehicles

General Motors has begun to expand its EV reach. GM has supported the Chevrolet brand with better EV vehicles like the upcoming 2021 Chevy Bolt and an unnamed electric pickup that will be built with GM’s $9 billion proposals to build a new production site. These investments are higher than GM had originally planned with an increase of $2 billion added, mostly due to creating its new, all-electric full-size truck. The competition of the electric pick-up landscape is expected to change with brands like Tesla looking to introduce their own EV pickup. General Motors is ready to add new electric horses into the EV race early next decade and it will start with the revamped Chevy Bolt EV.  

Updates For the 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV

Currently, the 2020 Chevy Bolt EV is set to debut this fall. A new battery platform will be added as a massive mid-generation refresh that has been set for next year for the Bolt, but that doesn’t mean the newest Bolt isn’t impressive. The 2020 Chevy Bolt has seen improvements with upgrades in the design and improvement of fuel economy. The 2020 Bolt increased 21 miles in range, but best of all there wasn’t any price increase. Chevrolet has stated that the Bolt can now charge at a rate that supplies owners with “90 miles in 30 minutes” of a charge. Chevy has increased the charge rate to 80kW and this would push the Bolt charging rate higher than a lot of the competition. The 2020 Bolt has a 259-mile range and has a 128 city and 110 highway MPGe with its 200 horsepower, 260 lb-ft of torque provided by its electric motor. The newest models are expected to push past 100kW charging with these upgrades expected for the 2021 Bolt EV. For now, the 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV, in its fourth year of production, is priced at an attractive $37,500 MSRP (Plus destination fee). 

Success and Future Plans for Chevy EVs

General Motors has sold over 200,000 electric vehicles between their new brands, the Bolt and Volt. They have sold roughly 20,000 Bolt EVs per year, including 23,000 in 2017. The Bolt is expected to receive enhancements with the interior for the 2021 model that includes a revised dashboard, updated seats, and a different exterior style. The plans for the Chevrolet pickup are set for 2021 as well with Chief Executive Mary Barra adding earlier this year that they also plan on raising their EV lineup to include 20 models by 2023. Ambitious goals, but General Motors knows the future is electric. Want to drive a new electric vehicle? With our help at Miami Lakes Automall, we can make this a reality!

Chevy Silverado Enters “The Best in the Desert off-road Racing” Program

When it comes to off-road performance, Ford is known for nearly having it locked down with the F-150 Raptor. We won’t see a Rival for Ram until a couple of years down the road, but what about Chevrolet? Chevy has been pretty quiet about the idea, but maybe certain news about the 2020 Chevy Silverado is a sign for what’s to come. 

On October 10, 2019, Chevy said that it would take the full-size pickup and enter it on the Best in the Desert racing series. Chevy knows about the off-road racing series since the Colorado ZR2 has been on a few tours in the last couple of years. The series has been used as a place to test new performance parts for trucks as well, which the company has consistently used. 

The Silverado will be used to tackle the off-road courses in the series. Chevy has said to cnet.com that the “Silverado race truck will be used for engineering development and validation.” The Silverado will serve a double purpose. 

The Silverado will run with a new long-travel suspension, prototype Multimatic DSSV dampers, and front and rear jounce shocks. What does the jounce shock do? The Jounce Shock System enhances gross vehicle motion control, it also increases suspension bump capacity, and it provides exceptional bottoming protection for extreme off-road conditions.  

This isn’t the first time that you see the Multimatic DSSV dampers, however. They made their first appearance on the Colorado ZR2. Chevy has said that the prototype set is of a higher capacity. The dampers will help keep the bigger Silverado in check with a higher wheel, and overall it’ll have better control. 

The rear shock skids and the skid plates cover a lot of the underbody which rounds out the race-prepped Silverado’s upgrades. The world is deprived of cool sedans. Chevy should at least give customers a full-size performance truck as an option.   

BEST IN THE DESERT OFF-ROAD RACING:

Best In The Desert (BITD) offers a number of opportunities to join in on the fun with a variety of off-road races across the U.S. The event is inclusive to those who are racing as a sportsman or is a seasoned pro. If off-road motorcycle racing, car/truck racing, UTVs, and motorcycle racing is something you’re into then the BITD is something to consider.    

When the next Silverado race truck makes its debut, which will be next month at the Laughlin Desert Classic, that’s when we’ll see the Silverado race truck.

Chevrolet Silverado Retail Sales Going Strong

“Retail sales of the Chevrolet Silverado are exceptionally strong, and when combined with record third-quarter retail sales of the GMC Sierra, we have the industry’s leading truck franchise,” said spokesman Tom Henderson. The battle of the pickups is underway, and the Chevrolet Silverado is amongst its contenders. On the list are Ford, Fiat Chrysler, and the Chevrolet Silverado. 

The Ford F-Series has been a story lead the majority of the year holding on to second place in the truck wars, but with the third quarter in the books, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has more to crow about. GM, however, is selling more trucks. That’s in part to the Sierra line, which was up solidly for the quarter.  

Although Ram sales increased during the third quarter of 2019 from 14%, which was 142,044 to 161,635, it was the Silverado who saw a significant jump. The increase was 16% (percentage-wise, it might not seem like anything), but that increase was from 133,329 in sales to 155,482. Ford’s F- Series fell 6% while Fiat Chrysler and GM saw their sales rise. 

“Whatever the outcome in any one month or quarter, based on what incentives and promotions are offered, the long-run trend is for Ram to permanently surpass Chevrolet into second place,” said auto adviser and market analyst Jon Gabrielsen.

GM and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles have released quarterly sales results. Something other car companies such as Acura, Hyundai, and Mitsubishi do as well. In the wake of the UAW strike against GM, the impact on the company is expected to halt the pickup truck sells.    

But not to worry, GM is not giving up. Michelle Krebs, the executive analyst for Autotrader, believes that the fewer trucks being sold will affect the profits at GM in both the third and fourth quarters. Krebs believes it “since pickup trucks account for the bulk of income,” but she confidently acknowledged that “third-quarter sales results saw the limited impact from the strike because of the timing,” according to usatoday.com.   

Chevrolet Silverado 2019 Stats:

The 2019 Silverado has the advantage of having a more voluminous bed in short, standard and long-box configurations. If frequently hauling is on your to-do list then you might need the extra room. The 2019 model has an ample amount of legroom for backseat passengers in its 4-door crew cab configurations.

The 2019 Silverado has a technology system that allows for safer and easier trailering. The advanced trailering package comes with a trailering app which also includes theft alert and trailer tire-pressure monitoring, hitch guidance with hitch view, making it easy to line up your hitch with your trailer without having extra help around. There is also hitch-area lighting, a trailer light test, and an auto-electric parking brake assist.

2020 Chevy Diesel Miami Lakes Automall

The Strongest, Most Fuel-Efficient Diesel Is a Silverado

2020 Chevy Diesel Miami Lakes Automall

In the landscape of half-ton pick-ups, there is only one fuel economy champion: the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado Diesel. Among the latest trucks hitting dealerships this fall, the right to call themselves the most fuel-efficient is the new 2020 Silverado because it’s new 3.0-Liter inline six-cylinder LM2 turbo-diesel Duramax nets 33 highway MPG. (Try saying that five times fast.) Regardless of how fast that statement is read or said aloud, the truth has been written and Silverado stands ahead of rival brands like Ford and Ram. We’re more than happy to go over the details that have made the upcoming 2020 Silverado a must-have for customers.

Chevrolet Silverado Has What Truck Owners Want Most

Buyers looking for a pickup usually want two main things. In these modern times, great fuel economy of a vehicle is king, but one feature is paramount as well; strength. Consider those who opt for the new Silverado will be ahead of the crowd on both counts. The new powertrain has a solid horsepower rating of 277 horsepower with an immense 460 lb-ft of torque. While the highway is highly rated at 33 MPG, the city MPG is at 22 with two-wheel-drive. This is General Motors’ first-ever full-size light-pickup that carries the available inline six-cylinder turbo-diesel engine. The diesel availability runs in the LT, RST, LTZ and High Country trims for the 2020 Silverado. Chevrolet has worked hard to make this 2020 Silverado pickup stand out as it does and created a seamless process to turn out this pickup for customers. 

Not Just Better Mileage, Stronger As Well

Getting the tough jobs done in a half-ton pickup requires a lot of strength to go along with efficiency. The new 2020 Silverado compared to the 2020 Ram 1500, well, the numbers stack up in favor of the Chevrolet product. The Ram diesel provides just 260, compared to the aforementioned 277 horsepower in the Silverado. The 2020 Ram 1500 diesel posts less in both city and highway MPG as well as combined MPG, hitting a point lower in each category. Think Ford does better with its 2020 Ford F-150? Nope. The Ford F-150 Power Stroke Diesel Lion pickup actually supplies 27 less horsepower and 20 less lb-ft of torque. The Ford F-150 also only hits 30 highway MPG and 2 MPG less in combined fuel economy. So, what does this mean for customers looking to get into a new diesel model? There’s no better choice among the major brands for a new pickup.

New Chevy Vehicles Will Include Amazon Alexa

Amazon Alexa is coming to an infotainment system near you. General Motors is adding Alexa to its Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC, and Buick vehicles in the first half of 2020. “One of the broadest rollouts of an embedded Alexa Auto experience,” announced General Motors on October 2nd, 2019.  

It will be added as a software update to compatible 2018 and newer cars, trucks, and crossovers. The upgrade will require compatible hardware and an existing 4G LTE connected services plan. “This brings the best of two fantastic companies,” Santiago Chamorro, said vice president for Global Connected Services, GM, Santiago Chamorro GM’s vice president of Global Connected Services. “We have listened to our customers and their insights are clear, they want to carry those ecosystems into their vehicles.”

The announcement was made at Amazon’s hardware event, which happened on September 25th, 2019, according to the verge. This isn’t the first news that Amazon announced, as it announced back in Septemeber that Google will provide in-vehicle voice, navigation and other apps in other vehicles. Amazon Alexa will be available on GM’s Buick’s, Chevrolet, Cadillac and GMC vehicles starting in 2021. 

When it came time to make the announcement, GM used the Amazon event to call attention to its ability to use vehicle connectivity such as iBooks and Apple Podcasts. Amazon’s “updateable” app structure would allow it to bring new innovations into its vehicles. The software updates have become important for automakers that are hoping to retain tech-savvy customers. It’s a plus for those customers that have become accustomed to constantly improving smartphones. 

“GM’s updateable app framework and vehicle connectivity lets us provide customers with new technologies that enhance the ownership experience, even to customers with vehicles that are already on the road,” said Chamorro. “Bringing the Alexa experience to our vehicles is an example of how we are listening to our customers’ feedback, and offering them the voice technology of their choice.”

This isn’t Amazon’s first car-rodeo as they’ve been moving towards car integration for a few years. Alexa, like Amazon’s direct investment in startups like Rivian, is just another one of the automotive integration for Amazon. In 2018, the e-commerce company that launched Amazon Key also expanded to the Key by Amazon In-Car delivery service. 

Volvo and GM were the first to participate in the Key by Amazon In-Car delivery service. When Alexa is added to the GM vehicles it will allow owners to use voice commands to control smart home devices like the home lights and find nearby restaurants. It will also allow for the voice commands to check the news and ask directions to points of interest. 

As for directions, Alexa features integration with GM’s embedded navigation systems and OnStar’s Turn-by-Turn navigation that uses easy-to-understand language. GM Owners will still be able to ask Alexa to play a song or podcast and Alexa will understand. Alexa will be able to fulfill any request that is available in the streaming services. 

General Motors:

General Motors Company is a multinational corporation that is headquartered in Detroit, MI. It designs, markets, manufactures and distributes vehicles. GM is one of the largest American automobile manufacturers. It’s also one of the world’s largest.

Just follow these simple rules after printing out the collection of stencils and craft the perfect pumpkin once the drawing is done. And don’t forget to have some fun!

  1. Cut a circle through either the stem end at the top of the pumpkin, or the bottom of the pumpkin to make a cap – we recommend the stem and at the top.
  2. Then, use a large spoon to scoop out the pumpkin’s innards – seeds and pulp.
  3. Follow the dotted lines when cutting out the stencil to have instructions handy. Tape the stencil onto the pumpkin and make sure it’s flat against the surface.
  4. First trace the design by poking holes with a sharp but small tool, like a needle. Now you can remove the stencil from the pumpkin.
  5. Just like a game of connect the dots, cut off your stencil. Push out the cut-out pieces (grey pieces on the stencil) by on them from within the pumpkin. Be gentle.
  6. All that’s left is to place a candle or LED light inside the pumpkin to give it that eerie glow.

We can’t wait to help our customers out at Miami Lakes Automall. We hope you come by for a rewarding and spooky good time in our showroom. Come see the newest generation Corvette, the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 Stringray is here!
