Chevrolet has decided to be creative with ways to provide their L87 6.2-Liter V8 engine in the hands of more drivers. How could they do that? General Motors (the parent company of Chevrolet) worked on adding the strong powertrain with more Silverado trims. Now customers can experience the massive Chevy V8 powertrain and its remarkable 435 horsepower with three more trim options. Considering a new pickup? We loved the latest Chevrolet Silverado, which was redesigned as the all-new 2019 Silverado 1500. The upcoming 2020 Silverado 1500 is going to surpass this pickup in more ways than one giving customers more options than before.

Changes to the Silverado

Chevrolet made their all-new Silverado 1500 lighter, yet stronger with the 2019 version. Reports have come out that the towing technology will be improved and more powertrain availability is expected. More than half of the trims for the 2020 Silverado 1500 will have access to the available 6.2-Liter V8 engine with its 10-speed automatic transmission. The Silverado will offer three body styles and eight trim levels to choose from, as there is a perfect fit for all customers to drive. The Work Truck is the base trim that is the only single-cab configuration. The Custom is the next higher trim that adds 20-inch aluminum wheels and LED taillights. Custom Trail Boss trim adds a two-inch suspension lift and the available Z71 package that can be added to higher-end Silverado trims is standard. The package adds Rancho shocks, skid plates, Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires, and a locking rear differential to safely handle going on roads less traveled. This is one of the trims, along with the LT Trail Boss that can opt for the monstrous 6.2-Liter V8 engine.

Opt for the LT trim, which adds an 8.0-inch touchscreen and available leather seats for a more traditional pickup look. The RST, like the LT, gain access to the 310 horsepower turbocharged inline-four powertrain. This is the first ever turbocharged four-cylinder engine in a full-size pickup and only the LT and RST have the option. The RST can also add the 6.2-Liter V8 engine should a driver want. The strength of the RST was improved as its towing capacity reaches 13,400 pounds with the new powertrain option, thanks to its 435 horsepower and 469 lb-ft of torque.

Higher End Trims of the Silverado

The most flexible trim might be the LT Trail Boss because of the Off-Road prowess and its standard 5.3-Liter V8 engine paired to an eight-speed transmission. Looking for the luxurious Silverado option? The LTZ is decked out in chrome from the grille to the door handles, wheels and mirrors. The LTZ supplies the 5.8-Liter powertrain and the 6.2-Liter V8 and the turbo-diesel straight-six engine as available choices. The head of the class for all trims is the High Country, which adds bronze accents throughout and integrated dual exhaust tips, fine leather seating, and available 22-inch wheels. Chrome highlights mix in with the bronze to provide a sleek look on the gorgeous High Country trim.

Under the Hood Is Where the Gold Is

Chevrolet is expected to offer their 469 lb-ft of torque V8 powertrain with optional Performance Upgrade Package that will also include a cat-back exhaust and a different air intake for customers. The 3.0-Liter Duramax turbo-diesel engine arrives for the first time with the 2020 Silverado, offered on the LT, RST, LTZ and High Country trims. Owners opting for the diesel engine gain 277 horsepower with a powerful 460 lb-ft of torque. Chevrolet introduced the 2.7-Liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engineered specifically for pickup driving. All of these upgrades only add more reasons why customers should consider the latest Silverado. The Silverado 1500 has always had so much to offer drivers, but we hope to have our customers come in for a test-drive to find out firsthand.

Chevrolet Leads the Way In Safety Features For Teens

Chevrolet is taking a strong stance on a group notorious for poor driving habits, bad judgment and a lack of experience: teenage drivers. Among the biggest reasons teen drivers are a threat on the road to themselves and others isn’t speeding as much as it is driving without a seatbelt. Chevrolet has stepped in with a new way to curb this problem. In fact, they have found the perfect solution that won’t just curve this problem, but enhance safety features in a way never before done by the brand. Other automotive companies should take notice, as Chevrolet introduces a feature that will not allow drivers to move unless their seatbelt is clicked-in.

More on Chevrolet’s Latest Safety Measure

Chevrolet’s latest program that has launched is known as “Buckle To Drive”, which is accurately named. This is going to be a standard feature for the 2020 Chevrolet Traverse, Colorado and Malibu vehicles. The way it works is basically, teen drivers will have to adhere to the rule set up by the owner of the vehicle. Parents can easily set up the key fob to a “teen driver” setting that will ensure the only way the vehicle can move from park is by having the seatbelt clicked in. Even better, all the fun options that come with driving, like the sound system and radio will not work unless the seatbelt is fastened in.

Improving On a Good Idea

Chevrolet has had multiple programs and features in previous years that have aimed at making drivers safer on the road. In 2016, Chevy launched a new program called Teen Driver with the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu that would monitor a driver’s behavior and rewarded the driver with incentives. The program included a feature that would silence the radio as well as automatically set off all safety measures including Traction Control, Forward Collision Braking, Stability Control, and Front Pedestrian Braking. This great system was set up using a configurable PIN code and parents could even set how high the volume would be allowed to go with a limit. The best feature? Alerts could be set off if the teen driver hit a certain speed limit. The speed range could be set as low as 40 mph. The over-speed warning system would set off a ping that would go to the owner and registers the infraction. That program was found to help drivers put on their seatbelt at a 17 percent more effective rate than without it, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

Chevrolet Is Committed to Improving Standard Safety Features

We commend Chevrolet for raising the stakes even further with this new program that will effectively ensure drivers, no matter what age, can be forced into using their seatbelt. Raising the level of safety will go a long way to ensuring better safety on the road, something we can all appreciate. The newest Chevy vehicles coming out in the next decade will continue to impress and provide amazing results.

“We have been researching this system for quite some time. So, we found this feature that works, and a group of people who could really benefit from it,” said Tricia Morrow, a safety strategy engineer at Chevrolet’s parent company General Motors.

2019 Traverse Miami Lakes Automall

Chevrolet To Add More Fuel Efficient Powertrain For Traverse

2019 Traverse Miami Lakes Automall

General Motors (GM) has revamped one of their powertrains and removing an engine option for the 2019 Chevrolet Traverse. GM announced they have moved on from the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine found as an option in the Chevrolet Traverse, leaving the 3.6-Liter V6 engine as the only powertrain currently available for the midsize SUV. The four-cylinder engine is still available in the latest Chevrolet Malibu and Cadillac ATS, but in the Chevrolet Traverse, it surprisingly didn’t provide anything to truly separate its self from the more powerful V6. Let us share all the details about the new changes.

More On the Upcoming Powertrain

This move will change once General Motors finalizes their upcoming engine, expected to be a 2.0-Liter inline-four with a twin-scroll turbocharger. The new powertrain will be an upgrade over the previous turbocharged engine, adding better fuel economy ratings. In a current climate where buyers are more wary of a vehicle’s gas mileage than ever before, it’s the right call by GM to make sure they provide an improvement in such a critical area. The upcoming twin-scroll turbocharger is expected to hit 237 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The best part about this engine is the ability to save gas by turning off the two of the four cylinders. The debut will come first with the 2019 Cadillac XT4 before it will come out for the Traverse. The new powertrain will include a remarkable 26 combined highway and city mpg; something all customers are sure to love.

The Future of the Chevrolet Traverse

The 2019 Chevrolet Traverse is a popular three-row SUV that will gain a new engine at some point in 2019. The expectation is that this engine will deliver better performance and fuel economy than the 2.0-Liter turbo-four that produced 257 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. The remaining powertrain, the 3.6-Liter V6, supplies  310 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. The report by GM Authority says the reason they opted to remove the second engine, which was only available for front-wheel-drive RT trim, is because both engines were close enough in output and efficiency and the smaller engine wasn’t needed.

First available for the front-wheel-drive RS version of the second-generation 2018 Chevy Traverse, the departed powertrain was not the main focus of the Traverse. The latest Chevrolet Traverse is an upgrade over the prior year. This is thanks to more cargo room added, losing 350 pounds and looking sharper both inside and out. The available 10-speaker Bose sound system raises the infotainment technology value. For any family that wants a vehicle that provides a great driving experience and an attractive full-size SUV, look no further than the 2019 Chevrolet Traverse.

Millennials Side With Chevrolet

2019 Chevrolet Silverado Miami Lakes Automall

The automotive industry is currently in the middle of an ongoing change. Waves of popularity have shifted from sedans to SUVs and even pickup trucks. So, who is the largest group of buyers in today’s economy? According to a recent study, Millennials are the ones making those finance choices. The new largest generation in the United States is playing a part in this massive change. This was terrific news for General Motors (GM) and Chevrolet, as this recent study had been published by Autolist.

Autolist, a company whose goals are to assist customers in finding and selling their vehicles, showcases how Millennials choose Chevrolet over other U.S. automotive brands. Remember, the age group for Millennials has been roughly classified as people born in 1981 through 1996. This means all Millennials are between the ages of 23 and 38 today. Autolist collected the data of 1,750 new car shoppers under the age of 36 as a basis for their claim. Which brand came out on top? None other than Chevrolet.

Chevrolet Stands Above the Competition

Auotlist came up with three questions to find out which brand millennials prefer. Among the 1,750 who gave their answers, Chevrolet, above all other brands, was what they chose. The first questions being, “What brand would you be most inclined to consider taking while shopping for a new car first?”.  The next questions had those polled giving a take on their age demographic, “Which brand would your age group most likely choose between Toyota, Ford, Honda, Dodge, Chevrolet, and Ram?”. The answer wound up being Chevrolet. The third and final question was “What brand do you currently drive?” and among millennials who answered, Chevrolet was their answer. So, we discovered Chevrolet is the brand these customers consider represents their age group as Chevrolet is their current brand and they would select it again in the future.  

How Chevrolet Has Acquired Loyalty With Millennials

Chevrolet has made their vehicles enjoyable to own, with a modern approach and adapted to include the latest high-tech technology in their vehicles. Millennials expect to drive a vehicle that provides Wi-Fi, which Chevy was one of the first brands to add Wi-Fi- hot spots. Drivers also carry about their safety and Chevrolet quickly adopted Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to help curb cellphone/smartphone use while driving. Chevrolet won over Millennials and their business by being ahead of the curve on these issues. With a wide variety of vehicles to sell their customers, Chevy has won over more fans with their powerful all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado. According to Autolist’s top analyst, Chase Disher, the latest Chevrolet promotion was effective at making the point across that their brand is successful. Chevrolet also engages heavily towards budget-conscious Millennials, something that these customers consider with any purchase.

“Chevy is doing a great job of trading on its reputation as a no-nonsense, affordable brand while at the same time adding to its vehicles the stuff younger buyers covet. This includes things like WiFi hotspots, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto connectivity, wireless phone charging and an intuitive infotainment system,” said Disher.

2019 Bolt Miami Lakes Automall

New EV To Be Built Alongside the Chevrolet Bolt

2019 Bolt Miami Lakes Automall

General Motors has plans to continue pushing the boundaries of electric vehicles. With the addition of Chevy Bolt back in 2016, General Motors took a large step towards providing the public with a fantastic electric car option. The 2017 Motor Trend Car of the Year has its latest entry in the 2019 Chevy Bolt, but it’s about to have a new electric model to go alongside it. General Motors released this statement about this upcoming vehicle, which is to be built based on the latest Chevrolet Bolt.

“The new Chevrolet electric vehicle is in addition to the existing Chevrolet Bolt EV, further advancing GM’s commitment to an all-electric future. It will be designed and engineered off an advanced version of the current award-winning Bolt EV architecture” – Statement from GM

The latest unnamed Chevrolet electric vehicle is set to be made in Michigan. Let’s get into why the new 2019 Chevrolet Bolt has been improved and is a fantastic choice for drivers to consider. We’re sure you’ll agree.

The Best Electric Vehicle Made By GM Today

There are few vehicles that offer an EPA-estimated 238 miles from a single charge, while that might change in the future for GM, there is only one vehicle that holds that wonderful claim currently. The new 2019 Chevrolet Bolt begins at $36,620 MSRP (plus destination fee) and that figure is lowered down to $36,620 MSRP (plus destination fee). The current federal tax credit is set to lower down to $1,875 after September 30th, 2019. Perks of driving the 2019 Chevrolet Bolt is more than the tax credit for the purchase and its remarkable mile range. Though owners will love how fast the vehicle charges up to 25 miles per hour of charge with the 240-volt/32-AMP charging unit, owners will gain an incredible interior to enjoy as well.

What Owners Are Sure To Love With the New Chevy Bolt

What helps make the 2019 Bolt so attractive is not only its electric range but its five-star National Highway Traffic Safety Administration rating. There is also that nice 10.2-inch diagonal touchscreen and its vast wealth of information stored in the infotainment center. Owners can check the efficiency history of the vehicle.

The Bolt EV is entirely an electronic-vehicle that has an electric battery that will charge in 9.3 hours at 220-volt outlet charging. But, it can charge even faster than that. How fast? The available DC charge nets a quick charge getting owners nearly 90 miles in a mere half an hour. Not paying for gas will help Bolt owners save more than $5,000 in five years of driving for the 2019 Chevrolet Bolt. We’re wondering how General Motors will craft their upcoming EV, but time will tell. For those that don’t want to wait, we invite you for a test-drive to see how well the latest Chevrolet Bolt handles the road. We’re ready for you at Miami Lakes Automall.

2019 Chevrolet Silverado Miami Lakes Automall

Chevrolet Is Building the Strongest Light-Duty Pickups On the Market

2019 Chevrolet Silverado Miami Lakes Automall

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 Tahoe and Suburban Miami Lakes Automall

Chevrolet Leads the Way WIth Reliable SUV Models

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?

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.

2019 Chevrolet Impala Miami Lakes

Chevrolet Impala Production Extended

General Motors will continue to produce the Impala despite making plans to end its run; at least for a little while. The 2019 Chevrolet Impala large sedan was expected to see its production run through June 2019, but plans have been pushed back to January 2020. With seven additional months of making this vehicle, GM is hoping to finish off the demand this vehicle carries. The 2019 Chevy Impala carries upgraded and advanced technology features in safety technology like Forward Collision Alert. Let’s explore why GM will keep this vehicle running a little longer.

New Technology Sticking Around For A While Longer

The 2019 Chevrolet Impala provides a 2.5-Liter ECOTEC direct injected 4-cylinder engine that has stop/start technology and carries a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Part of the reason for that high rating is due to having 10 standard airbags for every trim. Aside from safe, the 2019 Chevrolet Impala is fast and sleek. Owners can opt for the 3.6-Liter direction injection V6 engine that offers 305 horsepower. The 2019 Impala represents a refined interior with owners gaining an 8-inch touchscreen, a nice size for drivers when using the Rear Vision Camera. The Premier trim offers Rear Cross Traffic Alert standard and Forward Collision Alert is available. Impala owners gain Apple Carplay and Android Auto with every trim. The technology offered in the Chevy Impala is a large reason General Motors will look to continue the large sedan’s production into next year.

GM Production Continues

As far as the production goes, there are plans to close the Detroit-Hamtramck plant in 2020. GM has said they notified all employees, dealers, and suppliers of the changes. This is one of potentially four factories in the United States that could close. The extension of the Chevrolet Impala makes sense as it still provides customers with quality. As pickup trucks and SUVs continue to grow in popularity, this is one vehicle that will remain on the market. General Motor expects to save about $6 billion in cash flow by the end of next year. Those generous savings will help to allow them to invest in future technologies like automation and electrification. To test-drive the latest Chevy vehicles, come to Miami Lakes Automall today and see for yourself why owning the 2019 Chevrolet Impala is a great choice.

Chevrolet is thankful for the success of their all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado. General Motors had an ace up its sleeve with their line-up of diesel model Silverados, their highly popular and awarded pickup. The good news is there’s more technology being added. In June, the latest refresh from the all-new 2019 Silverado is set to debut. The Silverado HD heavy-duty truck was already lighter, yet stronger than the previous generation, but Chevy will have their newest heavy-duty, the all-new 2020 Silverado HD, by mid-2019.

Chevrolet has gone even further to gain more with less with even greater fuel-efficiency. Known as simply the 2020 Silverado HD, it is a new product for Chevy. With so much focus on the pickup, they have seen good returns on the Silverado and that success will help fund the research GM has for their self-driving projects. Let’s find out how much Chevrolet has invested.

Outlook For 2019

General Motors (GM) pickup trucks combined for a total of $65 billion in annual revenue with the heavy-duty versions of the Silverado and GMC Sierra making up nearly 20 percent of GM’s full-size truck sales. The revised Silverado HD will have competition in 2019 when Ford’s Super Duty is revamped. With GM’s reported sales hitting 210,000 heavy-duty pickups in 2018, the figure is expected to rise in 2019. As sedan sales have trended downwards, it’s less profitable than previous years for American automakers to make them. The latest trucks have more technology included and are more advanced with better engineering than ever before.

“These vehicles have among the highest margins in the business. You have no tomorrow if you don’t sell these trucks today,” said Jeff Schuster, senior vice president of forecasting at LMC Automotive.

Success and Continued Growth

GM reported sales of 210,000 heavy-duty pickups last year as the hope is the upcoming new models will sell even more. GM gains roughly 2 billion dollars through these sales alone before taxes, so the goal going forward is to continue to produce as many new pickups and other light trucks. Despite trucks being more expensive to build, they expect to grow by 1,000 workers to help launch the latest heavy-duty trucks in Flint, Michigan.  

General Motors is thrilled that these pickup trucks alone cover the $1 billion a year that the automaker places into its GM Cruise LLC self-driving unit. However, GM Cruise LLC  has yet to bring in revenue and has not yet begun its upcoming ride-hailing service, which set to debut in 2019. GM has an investment to solve the difficult problem of arranging a computer to operate a car. This problem is so costly that GM sold a piece of Cruise to SoftBank Vision Fund for $2.25 billion and another portion of the company to Honda Motor Co. for $2.75 billion. But they are looking to create this service to drive revenue even higher. This isn’t the first time they’ve put money into electric technology.

Electric Plans For Chevrolet

Back in 2016 the Chevy Bolt, GM’s latest electric car sold, lost nearly $9,000 per vehicle for the automaker. Chevy will take steps to ensure they don’t have that problem again. By 2022 the global auto industry as a whole will have spent $255 billion on electric vehicles and an additional $61 billion expanding self-drive technology, according to a report last year from consulting firm AlixPartners. There is no plan to sway GM from making electric vehicles, in fact they are doubling down on making new technology for us all to enjoy. Selling their pickups has netted GM over $9 billion annually and the future will showcase their latest innovations. For the latest Chevrolet pickups, head to Miami Lakes Automall today.
