Newly Unveiled Chevy Silverado EV Sells Out Almost Immediately

Friday, January 21st, 2022

Chevrolet recently unveiled its first electric vehicle, the Silverado EV. The all-new all-electric pickup had a stunning debut given the hype and excitement surrounding Chevy’s first EV pickup. The EV pickup was revealed at the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). There, fans and consumers got to get a firsthand look at Chevrolet’s Silverado EV. Chevy stated that there would be several trim levels coming, but for now, the Silverado EV launches as the RST First Edition. The price is a bit steep, but given the listed features and capabilities, the Silverado EV will easily compete with others like the F-150 Lightning. Many others seem to believe this as well given that the pickup sold out according to General Motor’s CEO Mary Barra. We’ll dive in further, but this is great news for Chevrolet.

Silverado EV Sold Out?

Chevrolet recently unveiled their all-new all-electric Silverado EV. The electric pickup was well received at the 2022 CES show. It was even more well-received when it opened for reservations. According to the GM CEO Mary Barra, the Silverado EV RST First Edition sold out almost immediately. Now, we’re not one to really cast doubt or suspicion, but one detail missing from the aforementioned statement is just how many First Edition pickups were made available. A common issue with reservation orders is that there are several details that can inflate the end number. One of these is the initial deposit needed to reserve the vehicle. Another is the fact that some consumers may cancel their reservations ahead of time. For the Silverado EV, many buyers only needed to put down $100 to make their reservation.

The Silverado EV RST First Edition starts at a hefty MSRP, $105,000 (plus destination fee). Chevrolet has yet to state exactly how many Silverado EVs it plans to build, but if the automaker is facing supply issues due to the global chip shortage, this number may be on the lower side. Regardless, the electric pickup looks fantastic. Chevrolet released a list of features and details so consumers can know what to expect. All Silverado EV trims will feature standard DC fast charging at up to 350 kWh.

The Silverado EV is expected to arrive in the fall of 2023. General Motors has confirmed that the RST trim will have 400 miles of range. Along with an exceptional mile range, the EV pickup will feature automatic adaptive air suspension, four-wheel steering, a multi-flex tailgate, and a 17-in LCD. The Silverado EV will be capable of towing up to 10,000 pounds with 1,300 pounds of payload. The RST trim will feature an optional wide open watts mode which can deliver 664 horsepower and 780lb-ft of torque. It’s clear Chevy did their best to equip the Silverado EV with the most powerful equipment and features. We’ll have to wait for more details, but according to Chevy, there will be other trims available some time in 2024 including a Work Truck trim that will start at $39,900 (plus destination fee).

Chevrolet to Make Changes to 2022 Silverado Engine

Thursday, December 23rd, 2021

Chevrolet will be adding a new engine to the 2022 Chevy Silverado. This comes after the full-size pickup received a pretty significant makeover for the 2022 model year. This makeover included an improved cabin, a new ZR2 off-road trim, and a boost in torque. Chevrolet has been focusing on producing electric vehicles, similar to most other automakers, but it’s good to see them updating their current lineup. The all-electric Silverado has been teased for a while, but Chevrolet is making sure that it has all the capabilities it needs to compete with competitors like Ford and Tesla. For now, we’ll be focusing on the 2022 Silverado and seeing what changes Chevrolet has in store for the new model year. We’ll still be keeping our ears open for more information about new models, but the Silverado is one of Chevy’s best-selling pickups so the changes should be pretty substantial. 

2022 Chevy Silverado to Get New Engine

The 2022 Chevrolet Silverado recently received a substantial update and makeover. The full-sized pickup saw an increase in its interior cabin quality along with a new off-road-oriented trim, the ZR2. The 2022 Silverado also saw a boost in its torque. Now Chevrolet will be adding a new engine for the pickup. This will be the turbocharged 2.7L four-cylinder which is set to replace the base 4.3L V6. The new engine apparently impressed Chevrolet engineers so much that they had no choice but to offer it to consumers. 

The 2022 Silverado will now come equipped with a 2.7L four-cylinder engine. The LT Trail Boss trim will also see its 5.3L V8 engine replaced with this new four-cylinder. The new 2.7L generates less horsepower than the V8 (310 versus 355), but the changes in output allow it to have more torque (420 versus 383lb-ft) which helps improve towing capacity. This new engine will help improve the overall capability of the Silverado. The new engine also comes with an EPA rating of 19 mpg in the city and 22 on the highway. Compared to the V8’s 16 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway, the new 2.7L wins out both in terms of torque and fuel economy. 

Fans of the 2022 Silverado can expect to see the pickup on dealership lots in the Spring of 2022. Chevrolet has not commented on any price changes, but the automaker will still allow consumers to opt for a 3.0L turbo-diesel Duramax engine on the Trail Boss trim.

Electric Chevy Silverado to Feature Huge Infotainment Screen

Friday, October 22nd, 2021

The all-new all-electric Chevy Silverado has been receiving a lot of attention lately. The fully electric pickup truck has been getting teased more and more as it nears its full debut. General Motors will unveil the full-sized electric pickup at the Consumer Electronics Show on Wednesday, January 5th, 2022. Many automakers have been focusing on producing electric vehicles as the global climate crisis persists. General Motors is no stranger as its electric Silverado has caused many to increase their faith in the potential of electric vehicles. Automakers like Ford have been cautious in releasing electric vehicles that appear normal and conventional, something they have found much success in doing. GM has followed this pattern. The Chevy Silverado is a powerful, durable, and capable pickup truck. By turning it electric, GM continues to appeal to pickup fans. It also helps appeal to a greater number of consumers. Now with the new Silverado’s debut nearing, GM has released several teaser images that show some features of the full-sized electric pickup. One of these features is a fixed-glass roof which appears to offer more visibility. Another feature seen is a rather large infotainment screen. We’ll need to wait for more information, but we’ll dive into these new features.

Teaser Images Show Electric Silverado Infotainment Screen

The all-electric Chevy Silverado has been shown to feature a fixed-glass roof as well as a larger infotainment screen. The full-sized pickup will benefit from the increased visibility, headroom, and overall sense of space from the roof. These details come from a teaser image that was released alongside information about the CES show in 2022. The slow drip of details certainly helps build excitement and hype. Another feature seen in the electric Chevy Silverado is the addition of a new infotainment screen. 

From the teaser image, the all-new electric Chevy Silverado’s infotainment screen looks to extend towards the driver. The screen appears to be horizontally oriented with a wide curved surface. Since it’s so wide, this infotainment screen could potentially contain both the system display as well as the driver instrument panel. This would be a similar layout used in the fifth-generation Cadillac Escalade. 

In addition to the screen and roof, another feature expected to accompany the electric Silverado is a four-wheel steering system. This would enable the pickup to turn all four wheels at the same time, thus improving agility. It would also tighten the turning radius at lower speeds. Meanwhile, at higher speeds, this would greatly improve handling and stability. The four-wheel system would also improve the pickup’s trailering dynamics. From what’s been seen so far, the electric Chevy Silverado looks to be very promising as an electric pickup. New features and capabilities look to accompany the truck which will better enhance the driving experience. We’ll be waiting expectantly for GM and the debut of the electric Silverado at the CES show at the beginning of 2022.

General Motors Says That Their Super Cruise System Will Upgrade With Lane Changes and More

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2021

Powering Up The Super Cruise System

General Motors (GM) prized possession, the Super Cruise system, is one of the most innovative driver-assist technologies currently on the market, and for 2022, it’s getting even more advanced and more accessible to other vehicles, such as the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra half-ton pickup trucks.

One of the main upgrades of the Super Cruise system is hands-free automatic lane changing, which will give the car the ability to access when it’s safe to pass a car driving in front of you and change lanes when permissible without any action needed from the driver.

Other advancements include hands-free towing, which is helpful for those moving trailers, and improvements in navigation. 

This Super system was first brought to the automotive scene in 2017 in GM’s Cadillac CT6 sedan. It was during this introduction that we saw how the car was capable of guiding drivers to and fro over 200,000 miles of various highways across the States, all on its own. By utilizing both the GPS and on-board cameras, it compares the placement of the vehicle to its location in a lidar scan of the globe. Once the car understands its location, and it’s safe to take over operations, the Cruiser will literally take the wheel, as well as control the acceleration.

However, this doesn’t mean that the driver should then slack off, as they are required to pay attention in the same way as they were when they were piloting. In fact, the system involves technology that can sense whether or not the driver’s eyes are on the road. Should their eyes roam elsewhere, the system will start with various warnings before completely deactivating. If this is not the case, in most cases, there will be no need to take over.

The automaker says that this driver assistance feature will be found on a wealth of different vehicles such as the upcoming GMC Hummer electric pickup, the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado pickups, the Cadillac Escalade and XT6 SUVs, and the Cadillac CT4 and CT5 sedans. Additionally, buyers of the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt will get to enjoy an older version of Super Cruise, which of course, will not include the lane change features. However, buyers of the 2021 Escalade models will get the new features in a future over-the-air update.

GM still needs to watch its back, as its fierce competitor, Ford, has plans to launch its own driving system, the hands-free BlueCruise, which is coming later this year in 2021 F-150 pickups, as well as the electric Mustang Mach-E car.

Another rival is the Autopilot system from Tesla. They also have a new beta version of its Full Self Driving features which even back automatic lane changes on the highway. On the flip side, the company says that the driver still has to keep his or her hands on the steering wheel to confirm their attentiveness…which completely defeats the purpose of the system.

While both Super Cruise and Autopilot aren’t necessarily newcomers on the market, they were not featured in any pickup trucks, which are the most popular vehicles in the States. In conjunction with Super Cruise and BlueCruise, these technologies will be brought to a new market of truck buyers in more ways than one.

The 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 May Get Off-Roading Features

Tuesday, July 13th, 2021

The Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 is a mean and aggressive pickup that earns its props for its off-road capabilities. The midsize pickup’s spool valve shocks are serious executors of their job, while the underside is geared up to be able to tackle more difficult situations and increase function. The high-quality Colorado model is just what the doctor ordered on a nice off-roading day, and the optional turbodiesel engine isn’t too shabby either. Now it appears that the automaker wants to implement this work of genius on its full-size 2022 Silverado, which would move a step above the Trail Boss trim in the lineup.

It’s questionable whether this upcoming Silverado ZR2 will increase in its strength, but decrease in its speed, or perhaps get the best of both worlds. For the moment, we’ll have to wait until the automaker releases the engine specs, especially because it’s certain that it will have particular features that will be unlike many pick-ups on the market, if not all of them.

One thing that should be expected is that the shock absorbers of the Colorado’s Multimatic-acquired Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve play a key role, as they make way for highly accurate damping control, better cooling, and increased travel. In the Colorado, there is an extra spool valve that is only involved during very large suspension movements. Altogether, the dampers perform better over a vast range of conditions rather than a conventional shock, and that’s whether it’s on or off-road.

Elements that make the Colorado ZR2 stand out are the elevated lift, augmented armor, rock sliders, and re-shaped bumpers to boost angles for approach and departure. There is also a toughened fully-boxed frame, along with its standard front and rear locking differentials. It’s certain that the Silverado ZR2 will have a better lift in contrast to the Trail Boss, brawnier skid plates, and similar number treatment as its miniature family member. The extra frame support may or may not be needed. Judging from Chevrolet’s teaser video, it seems that Silverado ZR2 will keep its rear leaf spring setup, like the Colorado, opposed to employing the arrangement of the F-150 Raptor and Ram TRX.

As for the engine components of the Silverado ZR2, more than likely the regular L87 6.2-liter V-8 that produces a healthy 420 hp and 460 lb-ft will be used, and will still be a worthy competitor against the Ram Rebel’s 5.7-liter.

One should know that the Colorado ZR2 also offers a Duramax turbo diesel option, and if the automaker wants, it can also offer the Silverado ZR2 with that powertrain’s larger sibling: the highly effective Duramax I-6 turbodiesel. Though it only produces 277 horsepower it makes up for it with 460 lb-ft of torque, and also has excellent fuel economy figures.

We should know more about what Chevrolet has in store for its truck enthusiasts by this fall but in the meantime…Miami Lakes Automall is selling vehicles in various shapes and sizes from the automaker such as the Silverado and the Colorado trucks. Those who are interested in any of our vehicles can simply view our online new car inventory and chat with a representative for further assistance.

Customers today appreciate a good, solid workhorse pickup today more than at any point in time. The fastest-growing segment in the automotive industry belongs to the pickup truck market and the competition is fierce. Chevrolet has plans to win over more customers with its impressive power and strength for the upcoming 2021 model year. It’s already been a great year for the Silverado and even more good news is coming. The new 2021 Chevrolet Silverado HD boasts the power of unmatched performance thanks to its 36,000-pound maximum towing rating. That remarkable rating was a major goal for the Chevy brand and we have more details as to all the improvements customers can expect for the forthcoming Silverado HD.

Stronger Than the Competition

No other pickup on the market can match this full-size pickup’s sheer towing ability. Up 500 more pounds of towing capabilities from the previous year, Chevrolet and General Motors have worked on offering a standout, clear cut choice for customers. The 2021 Silverado 3500 HD is that vehicle that will push the envelope as Chevy hopes to inspire more customer confidence that in the brand. To make towing easier than ever, the Silverado HD carries a new towing-assistance system that will provide eight cameras that offer as many as 15 different unique views for drivers to monitor to ensure a precise experience. 

More Perks of the 2021 Silverado HD

The price of the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD is $35,900 MSRP (Plus destination fee). Owners will be able to embrace its 6.6-Liter V8 engine or the diesel variation of the same powertrain. Customers can keep in mind the Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD has better towing ratings than the Ram 3500 HD and Ford F-350 Super Duty. Options customers can enjoy the choices between a regular cab, double cab, and crew cab. The wheel sizes range from 17 inches up to 20 inches. Drivers will love the capacity to handle nearly any job and enjoy the comfort of the Silverado HD. 

Don’t forget, as with all Silverado pickups, the newest features including wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are available. The future of Silverado will gain more features for the 2022 model year, but for today we can anticipate customers falling in love with the upcoming new 2021 Chevrolet Silverado lineup. To get a better look at the current Silverado lineup, rush over and shop with us at Miami Lakes Automall

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 Silverado Will Receive Refresh For 2022 Model Year

Everyone who loves the Chevrolet Silverado can attest to its strength and comfortable ride; that’s what has helped Chevy regain its spot as the second-best seller of pickups in 2020. For those that are keeping score, Chevrolet has only had one end of the year finish that didn’t see Chevrolet finish in the top two spots. (Ram just got lucky in 2019!) Well, the news for the upcoming 2022 Chevrolet Silverado shows major updates that will continue to shape the pickup towards what owners are hoping for. The latest spy shots show a similar Silverado that looks agile, but as powerful as ever. The changes can be spotted with a new tailgate and other updates. Let us break down the upcoming changes for the famed Silverado pickup truck.

Changes Coming To the 2022 Silverado

Cars.com gave high marks for the Silverado earlier this year, but we’re certain that 2021 will show the Chevrolet brand taking home even more recognition for its engineering. It could be thanks to the reshaping of the vehicle that includes an all-new fascia and a new two-tiered lighting setup that is found on the 2022 model year. The design of the exterior includes a new thin LED accent and daytime running lights at the top of the fascia, with the primary headlight element mounted slightly lower. The cab of the Silverado looks to be the same as the previous model year, but a new bed step might be added from its 2020 Silverado heavy-duty models

More On the Silverado Refresh

The latest spy photos do not show the interior, but we expect changes inside. The all-new fourth-generation Silverado came out in 2019, but its interior was lackluster compared to the competition for some buyers. The consumers will always be right and Chevrolet listened to its base to revamp the cockpit. GM Authority has said the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado will gain a revised center stack similar to the all-new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban have received. We will have to wait and see how the Silverado looks inside, but from what we are hearing, we are sure its going to appease the fans of the Chevy brand, as every great vehicle refresh does.

We want to welcome our shoppers back to our shop or help them buy online if they wish. We’re ready to assist our customers every day. Experience the difference at Miami Lakes Automall!

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

Wednesday, October 16th, 2019

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

Monday, October 14th, 2019

“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.
