6 Reasons The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado Is A Revered Truck

Monday, June 15th, 2020

The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 and 3500 lineup enlists in the increasing number of considerably updated, bustling trucks newly released like that of Ford and Ram. All trims are great capabilities in categories regarding towing capacity, regular serviceability and advanced tech functions.

Here are 6 Reasons The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 and 3500 Are Revered Trucks!

Powerful New V-8 Engine

Chevrolet worked some sort of enchantment beneath the sheet metal of the beefier versions of the heavy-duty Silverado models. This involves a new 6.6-liter gasoline-powered V-8 engine that pushes out a complete 401 of horsepower with 464 lb-ft of torque. The engine is as quiet as a mouse during its operation, even on while zooming on the highway.

Even More Powerful Diesel Power and Torque

The V-8 gasoline engine is a pretty impressive machine in its own right, however, the Silverado’s turbo-diesel engine has far more remarkable qualities. For starters, the 6.6-liter Duramax V-8 pushes out 445 horsepower and a mind-boggling 901 lb-ft of torque. Those who are in dire need of a truck that can pull some serious weight will find a friend in this particular model, especially with the combination of the accelerator. The collaboration of the 10-speed automatic transmission allows this hefty truck to thrust 0-60 mph in just 7.4 seconds.

Ground-Breaking Towing Capability

When armed properly, the Silverado 3500 working with the turbo-diesel V-8 reaches a maximum towing capacity of 35,500 pounds, which is exponentially mightier than this model’s best towing rating. As a matter of fact, this rating is so intense, a commercial driver’s license is required in order to fulfill the Silverado’s ultimate potential on public roads.

Tech That Gives You A Sixth Sense

Strength and pure fearlessness isn’t the only thing that a Supertruck needs, its the inside that counts too, more specifically the incredible tech features that the 2500 and 3500 offers. Optional features include a 15-camera system, which makes way for drivers to see every possible angle around the truck. The infotainment system is also very user-friendly with its simple display menus and visuals.

Wonderfully Fearsome Exterior Design

These hefty 2500 and 3500 trucks are nothing short of giants on wheels. The multi-leveled front lights and enormous grille instantly grabs your attention. Out back, a new bed dubbed DuraBed is included. The HD Silverado shows off a volume of 83.5 cubic feet with its long-bed option. The corner stops are also expanded to provide ease of access. 

Standard exterior features include trailer-tow mirrors and a power-operated tailgate. 3500 HD’s that are paired with dual-rear-wheel setup help to provide the best towing.

Perfectly Made For Individual Needs

As with many pickups, the monster Silverado’s are made with a variety of different options for designs and layouts regarding the length of the cab, cargo bed size, the choice for the engine, and posh features. The starting price is around $36,000, (plus destination fee) for a rear-wheel-drive on the regular cab 2500, which also has a long-bed arrangement. Prices can easily push past $70,000 on the more lavish High Country trim with an all-wheel-drive and optional diesel engine. When it comes to selecting any car, especially a truck, choices definitely matter, and Chevrolet company offers more a few.

Is Chevy’s Supercharger its Off-Road Pickup Contender?

Friday, May 29th, 2020


Ever since Ford launched its Baja Raptor truck, there has been continuous talk from different companies claiming they brought forth an off-road pickup of their own, “only better and more ..” zzz…This little lie still has yet to become a reality, but in spite of the disappointing prospects from other automotive companies, Chevrolet is taking a crack at this challenge with a supercharged Silverado truck and according to some reports, may come relatively soon. 

On Monday, May 11, TFLTruck claimed that General Motors is developing a version of its supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine to squeeze between its new line of pickup trucks and SUVs. The automotive blog says this information comes from an anonymous source who is on the inside of the happenings in the power plant and says that it’s under consideration in spite of all of the chaos surrounding the current pandemic. This means that the hefty Silverado may have LT4 with 640 or 650 worth of horsepower, surpassing the Ford Raptor’s abilities. It is also claimed to be a worthy adversary in terms of its off-road skills.

On the other hand, the Muscle Cars and Trucks blog is reporting that there are rumors of the high-performance pickup by Chevrolet being put on a hiatus, also claiming that this information is from inside sources. According to the report, the only large truck that is in motion to obtain the LT4 is the Cadillac Escalade. 

Additionally, one should know that despite a Silverado aiming to have high-performance capabilities, there could be a delay of sorts due to the circumstances of the worldwide COVID-19 crisis, which has caused quite a strain on many automakers and car suppliers. Regardless of contradicting reports of General Motors shelving its pick-up project, this is highly unlikely, especially since Ram affirmed its intentions to enter the rat race for light-duty performance trucks, therefore, it would be foolish for Chevy to back down now. This is especially in the company’s best interest to redeem itself after Ram practically wore a white dress at Chevy’s wedding as it took over its pickup sales last year; its time for revenge.

Another “maybe no, maybe so “ Chevy model is the Silverado “ZRX”, it has a powerful V8 engine with a turned out suspension, and possibly some diversity similar to that of the Multimatic DSSV from the Colorado ZR2. The company just had the ZR2 name trademarked, although it still isn’t clear when its debut or even production will come into fruition. 

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

Only time will tell what plans General Motors actually has in store, but while you’re waiting, why not check out the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 at Miami Lakes Automall. This hefty hunk has an exterior that is very stylish and lots of options for configurations. Best of all this Superman-like truck has a boatload of powertrain choices that are promoted by a fuel-saving Duramax diesel. The diesel engine is rich in torque and also has a very quick and energetic 6.2-liter V-8 engine.

It’s also recommended to opt for the 2020 Silverado’s Trailboss trim, it has great off-road options and overall reliability, though other trims are also very capable.

5 Great Features About The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado

Friday, May 8th, 2020

The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is no doubt an all-time classic, in fact, it is so recognizable that it has been listed as one of the most popular trucks on various websites. Simply put, when most people think of the word ‘truck’, they’ll immediately think of the Silverado. Twenty-two years after its first release in 1998, this hefty hunk is still hot stuff, as it has a very stylish exterior and lots of options for modifications. This half-ton stud has a plethora of powertrain choices that are promoted by a fuel-saving Duramax diesel that is rich in torque and also has a very quick and energetic 6.2-liter V-8 engine.

Those who aren’t used to driving trucks or really don’t care for them may be shocked to find how comfortable this year’s 1500 is and also how many high-tech features that it provides, like adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assists.

Whether or not you are a truck enthusiast or simply a curious soul imaging tackling the tough grounds of the earth like those cool people in the commercials, the Silverado has plenty of impressive features that make a great contender for your car buying choices. Here Are 5 Great Features About The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado.

Boatload Of Options

One of the best things about the classic truck is that buyers will have a lot of choices when it comes to different types of configurations and personal preferences. For example, the Silverado has over half a dozen powertrain options, it also has three different vehicle arrangements, and as many as eight trims to pick from. This Chevy vehicle can be converted into a basic truck for work or something that most would say is close to luxury.

Superman Strength

The second and perhaps most important feature of the Silverado is its remarkable torque. Let’s face it, having good torque is why most truck buyers would want to buy the 1500 in the first place, because it’s good at its job. This bad boy can tow up to 13,400 lbs with particular configurations, which is an improvement from its 2019 version by 1,200 lbs. This year’s Silverado is capable of lugging up to 2,000 pounds on its bed. No matter engine you opt for you’ll still get an incredible amount of power, and choosing a basic 4-cylinder engine would still allow the vehicle to haul up to 7,000 lbs.

Safety Options

Some might be surprised that this truck, which is known for getting down and dirty, has a lot of cool options for safety technologies, such as forward-collision warnings, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alerts, and lane departure warnings. Best of all, it includes plenty of great standard features like Infotainment 3 system (operated through a 7-inch touch screen), Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, plus a 6-speaker audio system, one USB port and a 12-volt outlet.

Comfortable Crusin’

Another unexpected feature of the Silverado is that it is incredibly comfortable. In lower trims, even though cloth upholstery and certain options may seem scarce compared to the higher tiers, the truck still has a quiet and perhaps even a relaxing ride. Of course, most would feel more comfortable in a higher trim since it has lots of leather, power conveniences, and more tech-options.

Its TrailBoss Trim Will Give You A Run For Your Money

Last but not least, a feature that makes the 2020 Silverado so great is its incredible Trailboss trim that comes off swingin’. This trim is a recommend for most buyers interested in 1500 because of its remarkable off-road option (also available for Custom and LT trims), it comes with two-inch factory suspension lift, a locking rear differential, skid plates, Rancho monotube shocks, hill descent control, and 18-inch wheels with Goodyear Duratrac off-road tires.

All in all, the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is a capable truck in every sense of the word. Luckily, Miami Lakes Automall has a variety of these models in its possession with different styles and trims, and most that cost under $40,000, (plus destination fee). Those who are interested in this vehicle can view our new online car inventory and chat with an online representative for more information.

Silverado Heavy Duty Pickups Are Stronger Than Ever

Chevrolet has revamped its brand in recent years, but the most significant change among all their vehicles produced has come in the way their heavy-duty line-up. Chevy showed off their dedication toward their flagship pickups, the Silverado lineup, with the new 2020 Silverado 2500 and 3500 HD models. They look great and offer so much more than previous releases, but what makes these new pickups so unique? We’re glad someone asked. 

Step Into the New Silverado 

The latest Silverado HD trucks will have an incredible max towing rating of 35,500 pounds. As these new Silverado HD trucks boast tremendous strength, they also give drivers a quiet cabin. Chevy is offering their all-new 6.6L gasoline V8 powertrain to complement Silverado’s stalwart Duramax diesel that delivers 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque streaming through the 10-speed Allison heavy-duty automatic transmission. This is the same transmission used in the all-new 2020 Silverado HD that came out just over six months ago. What else can drivers expect with these Chevrolet products?

Upgrades Across the Board

The new 2020 Chevy heavy-duty line-up is better for many reasons. The Silverado 3500 diesel is two seconds faster than the Ram 3500 from zero to sixty mph and provides a faster response time. The aforementioned  Allison heavy-duty10-speed automatic transmission is one good reason. Allison is the brand that has made the most automatic transmissions for heavy-duty and commercial vehicles for General Motor trucks since the 1950s. Allison continues to help Chevy reach new heights as evidenced by the immense power their latest pickups can generate. The 35,000 maximum towing capacity is not only Best-in-class, but it is also up 52% from the previous model. While these parts are made in Flint, Michigan at GM plants, they are designed by the Allison brand and are designed specifically for use in these monstrous Chevy trucks. 

“The 10-speed really gets you in control. Everything feels better. It’s super smooth shifting.”  said David Ames, assistant chief engineer of powertrains for General Motors.

High-Tech Upgrades Make Towing Even Easier

Something all Chevrolet owners expect is a beautiful cabin with all the latest technology and gear to make driving easier. Included with the Silverado HD trucks will be new technology to help keep trailers stable, help with braking, and maintain steady steering. The 2020 Silverado 2500 and 3500 will offer as many as eight digital cameras to assist owners in seeing every view for their trailer. What good is having the strength to tow heavy items if a driver can’t check on their cargo along the drive?  Going into tight spaces will no longer be as much a chore. 15 camera views will help any Chevrolet driver be able to park, move their truck and take it just about anywhere with ease. The release is expected to happen in the fall of 2019 with pricing to fall around the mid-30,000 mark for the 2500 HD.

2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 Will Offer Most Horsepower of All Half-ton Diesel Pickups

Friday, June 14th, 2019

Chevrolet is nearing the release of their new 3.0-liter Duramax diesel powertrain, expected to be a popular choice among Silverado 1500 customers. Priced exactly the same as the 6.2-liter V8 engine, this will be the very first inline-six turbo diesel ever offered in a Chevrolet half-ton truck. Known as the 3L Duramax, this engine offers 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, producing 95 percent of peak torque at 1,250 rpm. Chevy states peak torque is kept from 1,500 rpm through 3,000 rpm. What does this powertrain offer that other brands can’t? Chevrolet has over 100 years of engineering and their newest powertrain showcases their expertise.

The 2020 Silverado Separates From the Crowd

The 2020 Silverado 1500’s 277 horsepower is the most offered by a diesel powertrain in the half-ton segment. This new Duramax engine is matched with a 10-speed automatic transmission and has an exhaust braking feature that makes towing and hauling more relaxed than ever. Available for the LT, RST, LTZ and High Country trim for the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, Chevy is moving forward for their modern diesel engine. General Motors, the parent company of Chevrolet, describes the engine a “clean-sheet design” due to its lightweight aluminum block and cylinder head, a variable geometry turbocharger, electronically variable intake manifold with traits that aid in cold weather performance and start-up. The 3.0L Duramax cylinder block is constructed with aluminum alloy that affords the power needed to maintain the high combustion forces that happen inside a diesel engine. The specifics that help the new engine run effectively are due to superior engineering by Chevrolet and GM.

A Powertrain Made to Remain Secure

How will Chevy ensure this engine is capable of doing everything promised? Chevrolet engineered a pickup that can meet the demands of a diesel powertrain by adding seven nodular iron main bearing caps to support and secure the block’s durability from high combustion. Chevrolet added a rotating assembly consisting of a forged steel crankshaft, connecting rods, and aluminum pistons. Silicon is combined with the aluminum for heat resistance and tolerance within the piston cylinders, which improves performance and helps reduce engine noise. The top of the piston is strengthened to add some strength to support the considerable cylinder pressures made by turbocharging and the engine’s large 15.0:1 compression ratio.

Additional Technology Highlights

The Duramax 3.0L engine provides drivers with class-leading horsepower with minimal effect on overall efficiency thanks to variable geometry turbocharging enables. The system uses closed-loop controlled vanes position and advanced electronic controls to automatically set boost pressure to the desired value based on engine running conditions and immediate power need. Active Thermal Management helps the engine heat up fast to reach and sustain its optimal engine temperature for performance and efficiency.

The Duramax 3.0L also features split cooling between the block and head. Advanced engineering from Chevrolet also applies to the Silverado’s stop/start technology. The system is capable of shutting off the engine at a stoplight and will restart instantly after the driver moves their foot off the brake. With so much offered for customers to enjoy, there’s very little an owner has to do to get the most out of the latest Silverado. The 2020 Chevy Silverado begins at $28,300 MSRP (plus destination fee) and we know where to find the latest Chevy pickups.

The 2020 Silverado is not out in stores till late in 2019.

Chevrolet is looking to wow customers with their new 2020 Silverado HD pickup the new Chevy HD is impressively strong with a maximum towing capacity of 35,500 pounds. That number reflects a vast 52 percent increase from the previous-generation Silverado HD and is 400 pounds more than the largest Ram HD pickup available today (the Cummins diesel version). Owners will have the choice of five trim options (Work Truck, Custom, LT, LTZ and High Country with a remarkable 22 cab, bed chassis and driveline configurations.

They Can Build It To Be Stronger, Faster and Better

Chevrolet has invested heavily in making its new HD massive. Expected to be taller, and broader, with a lengthened wheelbase of 5.2 inches for Crew Cab models. In fact, the overall length of the Crew Cab with a standard bed is nearly a foot longer than the previous truck, and it’s almost 2 inches taller. For those interested, there’s plenty inside that has been upgraded to make the Chevrolet HD stand above the competition. Chevy has plenty to say about their products, including the newest 2020 Silverado HD line being built in Flint, Michigan.

“We set out to make the best HD trucks on the market, bar none. We increased towing capabilities across the line, not just for dually buyers. We added class-leading towing technologies, such as 15 available camera views1, to make trailering more convenient, whether pulling a large cargo trailer or a fifth-wheel camper. And we made a host of changes to make tasks easier,” said Jaclyn McQuaid, chief engineer, Silverado HD.

What Is Expected Inside and Out?

What is expected inside? Chevrolet has mentioned every component from the transmission to the wheels are new and upgraded. What has been enhanced? Owners will notice the suspension has improved, made to handle the extra load. The rear axle is enhanced with an 11.5-inch ring gear for 2500HD models and a 12-inch ring gear for 3500HD diesel trucks. There are new larger-diameter prop shafts and the cooling system is upgraded to mitigate heat. A new Allison 10-speed automatic transmission to swap cogs has been added.

Managing that maximum tow rating demands a precise rig choice; a regular cab 2020 Silverado HD with two-wheel drive and dual rear wheels at the back. The required engine for that monumental task is the unmatched 6.6-Liter Duramax turbodiesel V8 powertrain. This massive engine is producing the same 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque with direct injection. That’s more power than you get from rival brands like Ram, though Ford hasn’t released figures for its refreshed upcoming Super Duty.

Drivers can link up their trailer easier than ever before thanks to 15 cameras as part of the in-vehicle trailering system. Electronic trailering apps are being developed to allow for considerable functionality to those towing large RV trailers. Helpful features like auto park brake assist, grade hold help, trailer sway control, and integrated trailer brake control provides hands-on towing assistance. As for passengers, they will enjoy a bit more legroom thanks to a modest three-inch overall increase in interior space.
