When geared with the 6.2-liver V8, the High Country has the towing capability to get up to 9,200 lbs.

The easy action function also makes way for owners to reach closer in the bed. A full-width steed may be opened, as well as an inner gate load stop. Moreover, there’s an inner gate that has a standing-height work surface.

Chevrolet Proves That Its Design For Its Silverado 1500 Has True Buying Power

Wednesday, May 5th, 2021

The fourth-generation Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has reached its third year of stealing the hearts of pickup lovers everywhere. When this light-duty truck made its debut in 2019, it was praised by many for its design, which significantly contrasts with that of its third-generation model. Even though there have been some critics pointing out what they see as flaws in the styling, with some even using the term “sideburns” to describe the reason for their disdain. However, these sideburns have actually helped to increase sales rather than thwart them.

In a recent interview with car site, GM Authority, Bob Krapes, Director of Chevrolet Truck Marketing said “Research has shown that the number one reason to buy [the Silverado 1500] is design.” 

In actuality, the design of the Silverado is the main reason why the pickup is presently the best-selling vehicle in its segment amid buyers with ages ranging from 18 to 34 in North America, as reported in January by GM Authority. While the styling may not be everyone’s preferred taste, it’s doing what it needs to in order to entice customers.

Krapes continued to say that the design has also allowed the Silverado to become the best-selling pickup truck amid Hispanic buyers in the States.

Also encompassing variants like Heavy Duty and Medium Duty pickups, the Silverado is the automaker’s top-selling model by a sizable margin. To put into perspective, 594,094 units of the Chevy truck were purchased in the States during the 2020 calendar year. That signifies 34 percent of the Chevrolet sales and 23 percent of total sales of GM. In truth, the Silverado and its corporate counterpart, the GMC Sierra, together outsold the highly-favored Ford F-Series by almost 60,000 units during that year. While one could argue that this achievement could be due to the F-Series making its way into its 14th generation during the very end of 2020, it still doesn’t take away from its win.

Unfortunately, Q1 of 2021 saw a dip in Silverado sales, surely due to the ongoing effects of the coronavirus pandemic and the worldwide semiconductor shortage. Yet and still, at 126,591 units for the first three months of the year, the pickup still made up for 30 percent of Chevrolet sales and 20 percent of GM sales in North America during that period. These numbers also indicate that if Silverado styling was largely unfavorable, it would have not seen much success.

At this current moment, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is available with the option of four body configurations, thusly:

  • Regular Cab, Long Bed
  • Double Cab, Standard Bed
  • Crew Cab, Short Bed
  • Crew Cab, Standard Bed

A Regular Cab, Short Regular Bed Silverado is constructed in the States but is only sold in the Middle East. However, GM Authority recently reported that there is still a possibility for these configurations making their way to the U.S. and Canada.

The automaker has also announced in early April that an electric Chevrolet Silverado will be constructed at the GM Factory Zero plant (previously known as GM Detroit-Hamtramck plant) along with the nearing GMC Hummer EV pickup and SUV.

General Motors Say That An Electric Silverado Is Coming Our Way

Monday, April 12th, 2021

 

Electric Chevrolet Silverado

General Motors (GM) recently announced that the Chevrolet division will bring forth its first-ever electric Silverado. This pickup truck will be constructed at the automaker’s Factory Zero assembly plant in Detroit and Hamtramck, Michigan. Mark Reuss, GM’s president, even confirmed that the GMC Hummer electric SUV (which was revealed this month) will also be built at the same location as the Silverado. Previously, the car company said that the Hummer pickup, as well as the Cruise Origin, would also be made at the Factory Zero store. It is expected that the Hummer pickup will be introduced to the market sometime this year.

GM’s goal is to provide dealerships with over a million electric vehicles worldwide by 2025 and then win over the EV “market leadership in North America,” including that “with the company’s Ultium Platform, virtual development tools and technology, GM has reduced vehicle development times by nearly 50 percent to just 26 months.”

The automaker says that the electrified Silverado has been developed, though in and out, to be an electric vehicle. The company is also estimating that this truck will provide over 400 miles worth of range and all from a full charge, it will also be available for both retail and fleet buyers.

Reuss stated  Chevrolet takes “everything Chevy’s loyal truck buyers love about Silverado—and more—and puts it into an electric pickup that will delight retail and commercial customers alike.”

In January of last year, the automaker said that it was investing $2.2 billion in its Detroit-Hamtramck plant for the purpose of making several electric trucks and SUVs. GM retitled its plant to Factory Zero some months ago in order to convey its vision of a future without crashes, emissions, and congestion.

In fact, GM says Factory Zero is the “launchpad for GM’s multi-brand EV strategy. The facility has advanced technology and tooling and was designed with a focus on sustainable manufacturing.”

Additionally, Factory Zero will be getting significant renovations and upgrades, such as with “new machines, conveyors, controls, and tooling,” for the paint and body shops/general assembly areas.

Since last year, GM has made several announcements regarding its plans for an eco-friendly future, which also involves a modular propulsion system and an adaptive EV platform energized by proprietary Ultium batteries. The automaker has also said that it committed over $27 billion to electrics and autonomous vehicle development, encompassing $7 billion in 2021. The company intends to release 30 EVs worldwide towards the end of 2025, with over two-thirds available in the States. GM says that between Cadillac, GMC, Chevrolet, and Buick, GM will have EVs that range at all price points. Recently, the company announced its 2022 Bolt EUV and Bolt EV, which are expected to arrive in dealerships this summer.

Last January, GM revealed BrightDrop, their new business that seeks to charge up and advance the delivery of goods and services through its systematic offering of electrical first-to-last-mile products, software, and services. The purpose is to help “empower delivery and logistics companies to move goods more efficiently.”

What’s more, this technology will reach over to fuel cells, as it will equip its Hydrotec fuel-cell power cubes to Navistar to utilize in its production model fuel-cell EV, a.k.a the International RHTM Series.

The automaker says that it will spend $2 billion on its Spring Hill, Tennessee, assembly plant to undertake the shift to GM’s third EV plant, alongside Factory Zero and Orion Assembly in Orion Township, Mich.

GM announced the construction of Ultium Cells LLC back in 2019. Cells LLC is a joint venture with LG Energy Solution to mass-produce battery cells in Lordstown, Ohio. According to the company, the facility’s $2.3 billion construction is currently in motion.

Until the time comes for the electrified Silverado to arrive on the market, Miami Lakes Automall has a plethora of other Chevrolet models, including that of the current Silverado model.

How Chevrolet Offered Innovation For Its Customers In 2020

Chevy has done their part to mix it up and offer more special edition packages for vehicles like the famed Chevrolet Silverado. Look no further than the new 2021 Chevrolet Silverado Realtree Special Edition that was recently brought out this fall. We also learned the immense power that will come from the 2021 Silverado for owners for years to come. The Chevrolet brand is looking to generate more concepts that see the light of day, like the promise of the Chevrolet Blazer concept that arrived in 2020. The popularity of the Camaro is more noticeable and popular among buyers in 2020. However, the vehicle that claimed the greatest turnaround in sales was the fantastic Trailblazer in its 2021 model year. 

The Rewards 2020 Gave Us

Chevrolet has helped many find ways to be uplifted, including a raffle that gave a lucky winner the 1.75th millionth Corvette ever made. Chevy gave its customers the news that the latest pickup by the brand will compete with the likes of other off-road pickup choices.

2021 Chevrolet Silverado Gains New Realtree Special Edition

Friday, November 6th, 2020

2020 has been an interesting year in the automotive industry. We’ve seen disruptions due to COVID-19, resulting in some production delays across the entire landscape of auto manufacturers. The difference between Chevrolet and the other brands is how fast are customers returning to purchase a brand’s vehicles. The Chevy brand has actually posted higher percentages with the Silverado HD posting a 9.1 percent increase in the third quarter over the second quarter of 2020. The Chevrolet Blazer also increased up a massive 45.2 percent along with the Chevrolet Corvette gaining 33.3 percent, and the Chevrolet Spark that went up 26.6. The compact Chevrolet Sonic sedan went up 102.4 percent over its results from the previous quarter. 

Chevrolet Brings Back the Realtree Edition

Chevrolet has just announced a new Realtree Edition that is back for the first time in five years. This Realtree-themed pickup is made for the outdoors and carries the off-road perks of the Trail Boss trim. The powertrain is solid with its 355 horsepower effort from the 5.3-Liter V8 paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. There is also an optional 6.2-Liter V8 that is tied to the 10-speed transmission that equals 420 horsepower for owners to embrace. The apparel of driving a new Chevrolet Silverado is found in its off-road capabilities for this special edition trim.

The perks of the Silverado Realtree Edition adds a suspension lift of two inches and the added Z71 package’s Rancho off-road-tuned shocks, added skid plates, automatic locking rear differential, and hill-descent control. Wrapped with mud-terrain tires on 20-inch wheels, we think this pickup is the bee’s knees for any driver that wants a secure off-road experience in a stylish and modern cabin experience.

More On the Appearance of the Silverado

Overall, the 2021 Silverado is as gorgeous as it has ever been. The exterior perks of the Realtree Edition include cues from the outdoorsy theme with camouflage-pattern “Timber” decals, also located on the sides of the bed and on the hood as well. The bed has a liner that includes the Realtree logo. The exterior includes black badging, black exhaust tips, and side steps. The interior carries further camouflage patterns across the door panels. The 2021 Silverado has a starting price of $28,600 MSRP (Plus destination fee), which is way lower than the 2021 Ford F-150 and 2021 Toyota Tundra.

Chevrolet Silverado Introduces New Technology For 2021 Model Year

Friday, September 25th, 2020

Owners will have more versatility than ever before using the configurable tailgate can be lowered down in three different places. With the quick hit on the key fob or on the tailgate buttons, the truck bed drops down like a regular tailgate, with another push the bed can have a cutout in the middle, or retract, as well as expand the bed length to serve as a bed stop. The configuration allows for the entire midsection to be lowered down. There’s a setup that allows two-step access over the bed. 

A new crop of pickups has added some functionality to the truck bed, but not quite like the Chevrolet Silverado provides. For instance, the 2021 Ram 1500 will offer a split tailgate, however, there are half as many customizable options. The 2021 Ford F-150 will provide an available tailgate (that costs extra) and it also doesn’t have as many configurations as well.  

Enjoy the 2021 Silverado Pickup 

The 2021 Silverado has received some strength in its towing capacity even with the smaller engines. The 2.7-Liter turbo-4 in rear-wheel drive raises its tow rating 2,500 pounds to 9,300 pounds with the crew cab and the short 5-foot-8 bed. A regular cab with a long bed has a towing capacity of 9,600 pounds. The cooling performance surpassed expectations, allowing it to tow more, Chevy has claimed. The 3.0-Liter turbodiesel inline-6 now has gained a boost in towing capacity of up to 9,500 pounds in rear-wheel-drive models. The towing increase comes from a rear axle that was more durable than expected, Chevy explained. 

Like the 3.0-Liter turbodiesel in the 2021 Sierra, the 2021 Silverado turbo diesel is going to see a lower price of about $1,500 less than the previous year. Chevrolet touts its diesel engine as the most fuel-efficient engine with an estimated maximum highway range of 668 miles with best-in-class 23 city mpg and 33 highway mpg for all 2WD models. The 3.0-Liter inline-six powertrain gives owners 460 lb-ft of torque with 277 horsepower. 

Upgraded Technology Is Very Apparent 

To make life easier on those owners who will use the advanced trailering technology, an available feature provides a camera system that can display vehicles in the blind spots of the trailer. Owners can trigger a jack-knife alert as well. The camera system has an option that displays guidelines and open visibility when reversing a trailer into place. A cargo bed zoom helps owners ease onto a gooseneck hitch or fifth-wheel hitch. Driver assistance features can be added to base trims, and other features are available. 

The standard perks of the 2021 Silverado 1500 include wireless smartphone connectivity come for all mid-grade trims and above. The 2021 Silverado goes on sale this fall. There are also features that are offered for midrange trims that extend the luxurious features that come standard for the higher trims. Some of those features include wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The future of Silverado will gain more features for the 2022 model year, but there are many days ahead before that one comes. To get a closer look at the wonderful Silverado 1500 pickup, we are ready to help our customers drive one today.

Chevrolet Surpasses Ram In Pickup Sales

2020 has not been a banner year for automotive sales, but the Chevrolet Silverado has rebounded quite well from last year. The Chevrolet brand has finished second to XYZ so far through the first two quarters of 2020. Chevrolet sold a grand total of 267,166 Silverado pickups from January through June this year. The light-duty Silverado was more popular over the heavy-duty models, with over 200,000 of those sales going to the light-duty variant. Surprisingly, the Silverado saw higher sales in some parts of the United States when compared to the same stretch in 2019. Let’s talk about the plans for Chevrolet given its growth so far this year.

Breaking Down the Numbers of the Silverado Sales

The good news for the Chevy brand is its rival brand Ram saw an 18 percent decline over the first six months of 2020. Ram sold 246,253 pickups, exactly 20,913 models less than Chevrolet. This would not be a surprise to Silverado owners. Even Ford has seen an 18 percent drop from last year. That news is definitely a shock as Ford just introduced its 14th generation Ford F-150 model. But, the growth of the Chevrolet Silverado might see new peaks and sustaining its popularity going into the future. 

Chevy Expands Safety Features Across All Vehicles

Where will Chevrolet take the Silverado for the 2021 model year and beyond? The interior is rumored to gain an update with a mid-cycle enhancement and refresh coming to the full-size pickup. The safety features will see enhancements including standard features across all trims. Chevrolet lists these features as Active Safety features that include Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking, Forward Collision Alert. 

Further down the line, some reports suggest the 2022 Silverado might gain the same center stack as the all-new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban offer. Chevrolet is planning to expand its safety features across the board of its lineup, including the 2021 Malibu. While we wait for the news to break regarding the 2021 Silverado debuting at dealerships, we have plenty of new 2020 Silverado models ready to go at Miami Lakes Automall.
