Chevrolet Helps Untangle A Teen’s Twisted Predicament

Tuesday, April 5th, 2022

A few weeks ago in Elgin, Texas, it was a seemingly average day for 16-year old, Riley Leon. The teen was driving home from a job interview that particular day, on Highway 290, when found himself caught in a severe storm… which resulted in him getting caught in an EF-2 tornado.

As many individuals saw on a viral video, the tornado blew into Leon’s truck and spun it around several times before miraculously flipping back onto the truck’s wheels, allowing Leon to finally escape from the twister and only leaving with a cut on his elbow.

“Grateful I’m here. Grateful God gave me another chance,” Leon told FOX 7.

Unsurprisingly, as a result of this incident, the entire driver’s side of the teen’s red Chevrolet truck was dented. 

“So it was family. That truck helped me and my dad get to where we are now. To see that it’s gone, it brings a lot of tears to me,” said Leon. The pickup was indeed precious to Leon, as it had been in Leon’s family before his sister was even born.

In a rather exciting turn of events, Leon was not only offered the job he was interviewed for, but he was also awarded a 2022 Chevrolet Silverado pickup!

Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet, an affiliated dealer in Texas, teamed up with Chevrolet and the Chevy Cares, a charity foundation, to give Leon a new car. Randall Shapiro, president of the dealership, told Fox News Autos said he started calling around to track him down to offer him the truck as soon as he saw what happened to Leon.

Chevrolet also released in a statement:

“Chevrolet, together with Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet of Fort Worth, TX, are donating a 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT All Star Edition in Cherry Red to Riley Leon and his family after he survived a powerful tornado while driving in his Silverado. We are thankful Riley is safe, commend his driving skills during a frightening situation, and our hearts are with other families in Texas that have been affected by these storms. To help aid the recovery efforts in Texas, Chevy Cares is donating $50,000 to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. Due to the quick action of the team at Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet, the new truck will be presented to Riley and his family on Saturday, March 26, at the dealership.”

The new pickup that was presented to Leon is a Cherry Red Silverado 1500 All-Star Edition, which has a starting price of $50,000, (plus destination fee). As previously stated, this is the same amount that Chevy Cares pledged to donate to the American Red Cross organization, to help those affected by the severe storm.

Chevy’s 2024 Silverado EV Is In High Demand

Monday, January 31st, 2022

100,000 Reserved The Electric Silverado

The Chevrolet company recently unveiled its first-ever electric pickup truck, and it’s safe to say that its reception was well received, with at least 110,000 people already signing up to make a purchase.

As many automakers are fighting the good fight in the transition of becoming an electric brand, we imagine that it must be gratifying for any automotive company to receive interest in their new hybrid or fully-electric models.

It is worth mentioning, however, that while Chevy’s numbers show some enticement for the truck, they still have some ways to go before completely replacing the love that Americans have for their gas-powered vehicles. In 2021, the car company sold close to 520,000 non-electric Silverados, reaching right behind the Ford F-150 and Ram 1500.

Another important detail is that a reservation is just that…a reservation. An interested buyer could reserve their right to the truck by paying a fee of $100, and if they change their mind, the payment is refundable. Various details regarding the new Silverado are being kept hush-hush, it’s possible that some may not follow through with their reservation.

More Info On The Silverado EV

The latest Silverado is scheduled to arrive in the spring of next year as a 2024 model. It will also include two trim levels.

The basic work truck (WT) model will have a starting price of $39,000, (plus destination fee). It has a capable output of 510 horsepower and 615 lb-ft of torque. The company estimates that it will carry a range close to 400 miles between charges. Towing capacity is also 8,000 lbs, while the payload is at 1,200 lbs.

The second option and last option will be a fully loaded RST model. This sticker price reaches all the way up to $105,000, (plus destination fee), but it includes a boatload of conveniences that make it all worth it. It also increases its speed and strength, with 644 horsepower and 780 lb-ft of torque. It can also tow up to 10,000 lbs and has a payload of 1,300.

The automaker maker says that more trim levels will be revealed before the arrival date, including an adventurous Trail Boss version, with a price currently unknown.

More Electric Pickups Coming Our Way

The fun doesn’t stop there in the automotive world and their electric pickups, as there are more vehicles in store for us! The Silverado EV will sit on General Motors’ (GM) new Ultium electric vehicle architecture. This unit will contain all of the necessary components and batteries and can be set up to build vehicles of many shapes and sizes.

GM has already made strides in the pickup segment with its Hummer EV. This truck follows the R1T from the startup company, Rivian. When we see the Silverado, those who will have been accompanied by Ford’s F-150 Lightning EV, which has already received an impressive amount of reservations.

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 Requires The Traditional Route For Buying The 2022 Silverado ZR2

Monday, December 6th, 2021

Chevrolet announced that they will not accept reservations or pre-orders for their upcoming Silverado ZR2 truck. According to an interview with GM Authority editor Alex Luft, Director of Chevrolet Truck Marketing, Kelly MacDonald, the 2022 off-reading vehicle will launch through the traditional dealer allocation and launch processes.

This particular approach is different from GM’s other launch strategies for various other specialty vehicles, like the 2022 GMC Hummer EV Pickup, 2023 Cadillac Lyriq, and 2022 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing and 2022 CT5-V Blackwing. This restriction on pre-orders for the newest Silverado variant means that buyers will be able to order and essentially purchase the truck from their dealer as they would a regular Silverado, especially since the dealer has the appropriate allocation that enables its order to be accepted by the factory.

On September 9th, Chevrolet introduced the 2022 Silverado ZR2 as the new flagship adventurous model in the lineup of their light-duty pickups, marking it as the first that the ZR2 badge was featured on the Silverado. As with the mid-sized Colorado ZR2, the off-roading Silverado consists of progressive Multimatic DSSV dampers with three separate spool valves and three fluid flow chambers for better damping control. These springs work alongside the dampers to provide maximum front and rear suspension travel. At the same time, front and rear e-lockers further improve the vehicle’s loose surface traction and rock crawling capabilities.

There is perhaps one particular element of the ZR2 that stands out among other Silverado’s, and that is its special front fascia, which involves a high-approach steel front bumper with changeable end caps that provide a bit more intensity to the exterior design, while simultaneously making way an augmented 31.8-degree approach angle. Additional off-road-centered gear consists of a set of distinctive 18-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory tires, as well as surplus underbody skid plates. At last, the dual exhaust system has been reformed, involving tucked-down exhaust tips that stop ahead of the rear bumper, lessening the chance that it will get dented or smashed when going off-road or performing rock crawling activities.

Supplementary exterior add-ons for the Silverado variant include several ZR2 badges on the outer body, a new black hood insert, a special grille coupled with lighting, and a flow-tie emblem with a red inlay.

GM’s sole engine option will be their naturally-aspirated 6.2L L87 V8 engine, which has an output of 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque paired to the automaker’s 10-speed automatic transmission and 4WD. Another standard is the new Terrain Mode setting, which gives way for one-pedal driving, ensuring precise control for rock crawling. Max payload gets a rating of 1,440 lbs, while the maximum conventional trailer weight gets a rating of 8,900 lbs.

The upcoming ZR2 will be available solely in the 4-door Crew Cab, Short Bed body style. It will also encompass the remodeled 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 interior, along with the standard 13.4-inch-diagonal color touchscreen and 12.3-inch-diagonal customizable digital instrument cluster.

While at the 2021 SEMA show, Dom Lester, General Motors chief engineer for Performance Variants and Motorsports, discussed with GM Authority’s Alex Luft that the ZR2 was constructed using knowledge obtained from racing a ZR2 prototype (near-production) in the Best in the Desert racing series with the Hall Racing team, and from testing samples in the famous Moab desert in Utah.

“Chevrolet has been competing on some of the most grueling, toughest off-road courses with a prototype Silverado ZR2 in the Best in the Desert race series,” said Lester. “We applied what we learned in racing and Moab testing to the new ZR2 to offer a supremely capable and confidence-inspiring package, but one that doesn’t beat you up on the highway with its ride quality. It’s equally capable and comfortable.”

GM Authority reported last week the newest 2022 Silverado’s timeframe for its launch. This animated truck will enter production in February of the 2022 calendar year for the Regular and Crew Cab, while the Double Cab will enter production in March.

Chevrolet Picks Up The Pace In The Electrified Race

Tuesday, October 12th, 2021

Automakers near and far are slowly making preparations to redevelop their platforms from gasoline-powered vehicles to those that are either fully electric or hybrids. This is especially so for pickup trucks, with this segment on course to becoming the most popular space for EV models. Some examples include Ford’s F-150 Lighting, Rivian R1T, Tesla’s Cybertruck, and more.

Another automaker throwing its hat into the electric pickup race is General Motors (GM), as they’ve already confirmed the resurgence of its Hummer moniker under the GMC brand, but as a fully electric truck. The main focus on the construction of this vehicle will be its 1,000 horsepower output and “luxury off-roading”, but for buyers who are looking for something a bit simpler and rugged, they can opt for the newly-teased Chevrolet Silverado.

Last week Wednesday, (Oct.6), Chevrolet said that it would introduce the electric version of the Silverado truck at the Consumer Electronics Show in 2022. The event, which is held annually in Las Vegas, Nevada, is one of the world’s prominent industry trade shows. Mary Barra, GM’s CEO is set to make the full reveal of the pickup in January, but in the meantime, here’s what you should know.

First and foremost, the Silverado will be powered by the brand’s new Ultium battery system. These packs will support the company’s next-generation electric models all across its brands, providing energy storage that range from 50 kilowatt-hours to 200 kWh. GM has said before that these batteries will provide “up to 400 miles or more on a full charge”, which mirrors the figure that the Silverado was given. This gives us reason to believe that the pickup’s battery will be the same size as the electrified Hummer.

The Silverado will be produced at GM’s Factory Zero plant by the side of the Hummer EV and the untitled GMC electric pickup.

Another point of interest is the truck’s glass roof. This optional transparent type of ceilings feeds off the recent trend of fixed glass roofs geared on vehicles such as the Tesla Model 3 and Ford Mustang Mach-E. The Hummer EV also sports a congruous “Infinity Roof”, at the same time, the Silverado’s roof will be mounted rather than removable like the Hummer’s top-frame.

In August, GM announced that the Silverado EV will involve a set of kicks going up as far as 24-inches, which is the largest pair of wheels that has ever been offered on a pickup from Factory Zero. This vehicle will also encompass available four-wheel steering, which in the same way as the electric Hummer’s system, can aid in maneuvering its way in tight spaces by lessening the turning radius and possibly even positioning the truck diagonally.

Mark Reuss, president of General Motors, made his expectations clear during a recent press call that its target customers for the battery-powered version of the Silverado will contrast from conventional pickup buyers. This would make sense as to why the company chose the CES to showcase the truck as opposed to a standalone event, but it may also indicate that what GM anticipates the truck market to evolve into as it transitions even more towards a luxury segment while keeping a considerable amount of utility. The carmaker also revealed the availability of a fleet version, which essentially is the draft horse within the lineup and usually has the groundwork as the retail model, just more centered on functionality and not so much about interior opulence.

GM still has more in store with its Silverado, some that we’ll have to wait a little longer for. However, with recent revelations relating to the company’s semi-autonomous driving functions, the pickup may be likely to become a knockout with future pickup buyers. Be on the lookout in January for the unveiling of the truck at the CES, and in the meantime…

Miami Lakes Automall has an extensive range of vehicles from Chevrolet ranging from sedans, hatchbacks, pickups, and much more! 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.

The 2022 Chevrolet Silverado Brings On A Larger Screen Among Several Features

Tuesday, September 28th, 2021

The 2022 Silverado Get’s A New 13.4-inch Interior Screen

The 2022 Chevy Silverado pickup truck has been refashioned in more ways than one. The new kid in town brings a slew of changes and advancements over its 2021 predecessor and the 2022 Silverado Limited trim. The highlighting feature among these improvements is an interior design that has been reworked from top to bottom and involves a new 13.4-inch infotainment screen.

This standard new and larger infotainment technology is geared on 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 models, like the LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, ZR2, LTZ, and High Country. The 13.4-inch gadget is set to come our way and act as a replacement for the 8-inch screen previously featured on the 2019’s to the interim period of 2022’s Limited models. The new and exciting interior setup also involves wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, together with built-in tech features from Google, like Google Assistant, Google Maps, and Google Play.

As you can see from the picture below, the larger front-row screen expands horizontally across the dashboard and is split in half, with the left side of the display dominated by virtual user interface buttons, and the right encompassing features regarding the directions and map. Additionally, there is a physical Home button that sits at the left of the volume knob, along with a set of USB ports (also involving one USB-C port) in the center of the stack located to the right of the climate controls.

On its own, the screen is fixed with a “floating” design that carries it out of the center stack, while also implementing an air vent by the left side of the driver’s seat, as well as a storage bin above and in the back of the screen.

For the time being, there hasn’t been anything announced for other models, like the WT, Custom, and Custom Trail Boss. One should know that these trims have been previously geared as a standard with a 7-inch screen for the 2022-interim Chevy Silverado 1500 Limited.

Surplus updates that you’ll find noteworthy for this upcoming 2022 revamped model year include a new 12.3-inch configurable instrument cluster, which is geared as standard on all restyled 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 models furnished with the tuned up interior design. Furthermore, buyers will have access to General Motor’s semi-autonomous Super Cruise driver-assist system, found on the High Country trim level. This particular model will come with assisted trailering capabilities and the luxury that you’ll already come to know and love.

Miami Lakes Chevy

The new and improved 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 pickup truck is set to open in December. Production for this vehicle is scheduled to embark in the first quarter of next year, and it’s expected that the company will give us more scoop within a few weeks. 

When the time comes to purchase your adventurous car, be sure to do it at Miami Lakes Automall. We carry an extensive range of vehicles in various shapes and sizes, as well as prices.

GM to Debut All-New Off-Road Chevrolet Silverado ZR2

Thursday, September 16th, 2021
Chevy Silverado ZR2

General Motors (GM) is getting ready to show off its latest pickup, the all-new off-road 2022 Chevrolet Silverado ZR2. This release comes in the midst of a global transition to electric vehicles. Most automakers have been aiming to produce their own version of an electric vehicle. GM has been teasing the all-electric Chevy Silverado and rumors have been spreading about a potential electric Camaro. With the all-new off-road 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2, GM is hoping to ramp up excitement and anticipation for its future lineup. The debut of a fully electric pickup has garnered the most interest, but GM has been sure to keep any information under wraps. For now, the automaker is providing updates and adding new features to its current lineup. Until more information is released about other vehicles, we’ll have to stick to pure speculation. The automaker has released details about the 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 however, so we’ll dive into the new updates.

All-New Off-Road 2022 Chevrolet Silverado ZR2

GM unveiled the all-new off-road 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 ahead of the NFL’S first game of the season between the Dallas Cowboys and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. GM has enjoyed a lot of interest recently for its Silverado lineup, but this move to reach the greatest number of eyes was solid. According to the director of Chevrolet marketing Kelly MacDonald, about 60% of Silverado sales have been off-road-focused pickups. With so much interest in off-road capable pickups, it’s no wonder GM is updating its lineup. 

The all-new off-road 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 will be getting a new exterior design and several new features and technologies. GM will update the pickup’s exterior with slimmer headlights and a refreshed grille. These will help display the brand’s logo more prominently. The new designs are similar to those of the updated 2022 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban, both of which share the same platform as the Silverado. Inside the Chevy Silverado ZR2, consumers will note more technologies such as an e-shifter. A larger infotainment screen and heads-up display will also accompany the new pickup.

The last addition to the all-new Chevy Silverado ZR2 will be safety and driver-assist features. These will consist of lane-keep assist, lane departure alerts, forward collision alerts, and automatic emergency braking. GM will also be including its new Super Cruise hands-free highway driving system. This new system will use sensors, radars, and cameras to help drivers better navigate the road. Pricing for the all-new off-road 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 has not been determined yet, however, the starting price for the Silverado lineup ranges from $30,000 to $60,000 MSRP (plus destination fee). The new pickup will most likely fall between these prices. Off-road pickups offer the function of a pickup with the versatility of an off-roader. GM is providing consumers with the best of both worlds. Consumers will be happy to see GM expanding and updating its lineup.

Revamped 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 to Debut Soon

Thursday, August 12th, 2021

The 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 is getting a new look. The newly revamped full-size pickup will be unveiled on September 9th, 2021. Production of the pickup will begin later in 2021 on September 20th and September 27th. For now, Chevy fans can get a closer look at some of the new features being offered.

What’s New for the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500?

The 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 will be getting several improvements to its interior and exterior. The full-sized pickup will also be getting a new architecture platform that will provide new technology features. Inside the refreshed 2022 Silverado, drivers will find an overhauled cabin with a new dash, center stack, and center console. A large infotainment screen and a digital gauge cluster also come equipped inside the pickup. Another change being made will be to the traditional column gear shifter. It will be getting replaced with a new electronic gear select system.

Looking at the exterior of the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500, several minor changes can be seen. One change is a revision to the front fascia. Additional changes to the full-sized pickup include new headlamps, a redesigned tailgate, and different taillights. These will give the new pickup a distinct look that sets it apart from previous iterations.

New Global B Architecture System

One of the most drastic changes to the new 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 is that it will be migrating to GM’s new Global B electrical architecture system. This new architecture will enable over-the-air updates, a feature many automakers are introducing. This new over-the-air update system will allow GM to offer consumers the latest technology features. One of these features is GM’s hands-free Super Cruise drive system which provides drivers with a level 2 autonomous system. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, levels of autonomous technology range from 1-5. Since GM’s driver-assist system is a level 2, this means that it will offer semi-autonomous driver assistance. Drivers will be able to remove their hands from the steering wheel during extended periods of driving, but they should still remain alert and engaged to the road. 

The 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 will also come alongside a new trim, the Silverado ZR2. This trim will feature an upgraded suspension, knobby tires, and underbody skid plates for better off-road performance.

GM’s CEO Raves About The Upcoming Chevrolet Silverado EV

Monday, May 10th, 2021

 

GM’s CEO Comments On The Upcoming EV Silverado

General Motors recently conducted a Q1 financial report with investors, during which a Deutsche Bank analyst had specific questions regarding the brand’s Silverado EV. This prompted CEO Mary Barra to briefly give some insights about its highly anticipated truck.

“And again, we have incredible know-how in this company and how to do full-sized trucks and we’re taking that into an EV-propelled vehicle, and that I think is going to give us a winning formula. I’m excited to share that vehicle with everyone because it’s just stunning,” Barra commented.

Barra also added that GM expects to have a strong demand for its upcoming electric Silverado. She thinks that the Utilium platform could aid the company in obtaining leadership in the market.

Last month, Chevrolet confirmed rumors regarding the Silverado EV, as they plan on constructing the model apace with the GMC Hummer EV at the company’s Detroit-Hamtramck Factory Zero facility. Both trucks will reside on the Ultium platform, and the aim is for the green Silverado to have a range of about 400 miles or 644 kilometers.

“The vehicles coming from Factory Zero will change the world, and how the world views electric vehicles,” said GM President Mark Reuss when announcing the Silverado EV. “The GMC Hummer EV SUV joins its stablemate in the realm of true supertrucks, and Chevrolet will take everything Chevy’s loyal truck buyers love about Silverado — and more — and put it into an electric pickup that will delight retail and commercial customers alike.”

At the current moment, there is no word as to the arrival date of the electrified Silverado. However, seeing how it proceeds on a different platform than the gasoline model, it leaves room for significant styling changes between the two trucks.

Furthermore, GM is investing $2.2 billion into the Detroit-Hamtramck facility to develop the site into a major center for the company’s electric vehicle production.

More Fun Facts

  • Chevrolet’s first full-size electric truck won’t just be for public consumption, as both retail and fleet versions will be made available.
  • GM claims that you won’t have to worry about spending so much time charging and for only a few miles, as it’s expected for the upcoming Silverado to deliver 400 miles on a full charge.
  • As previously stated, America’s powerhouse automaker is embracing the “Made In The U.S.A” slogan by building the EV truck at GM’s Factory ZERO assembly plant, previously known as the Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Center. This is the company’s first EV-only assembly plant, and not only will it produce the Silverado and the Hummer, but also the Cruise Origin, which is an upcoming self-driving vehicle.
