Well, there’s some interesting news going down over at Chevrolet, under the automotive umbrella of the General Motors group. If unawares, General Motors is starting to pick up their slack when it comes to getting on the bandwagon for zero emission propulsion and powertrains. With the upsurge of electrified and alternative fuel vehicles estimated in the coming years, GM is not one to fall behind, and with Chevrolet already having moderate success in alternative fuel with the Chevrolet Bolt EV, a large change is about to take place. Chevy will be shifting away from the Chevrolet Camaro to focus on electrified vehicles (EVs).

Competitor automotive group Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has already unveiled their plans for going electric with many vehicles already underway. To keep up, GM is making some decisive moves. Car and Driver were there to report on the newest announcement.

“Al Oppenheiser, chief engineer and spiritual leader of the Chevrolet Camaro program for more than a decade, is moving to General Motors’ newly formed AV/EV organization to focus on zero-emission-vehicle development.”

Miami Lakes Automall 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD

Jeez, it’s only been a few weeks since the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 was showcased by the General Motors Corporation. With many trim levels for the 2019 model year and many powertrains, consumers could get a Silverado pickup truck designed for their needs and purposes. Around the same time, the Chevrolet Silverado was voted as “Truck of the Year” by editors and writers from AutoGuide who took the Chevy Silverado for a test drive. Well, Chevrolet must be listening to their consumers, because soon after they unveiled the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, the 2020 Chevy Silverado HD was announced to debut in February 2019.

For those keeping count, this is the third all-new Silverado model from Chevrolet in just 18 months. Being the HD model, not only is it a very capable pickup truck of the lineup, but the 2020 model is said to be the most capable and advanced Silverado HD ever. Just another Silverado model to appeal to the variety of Chevrolet customers…or is it?

Set to be built at the Flint Assembly plant in Flint, Michigan, the new Silverado HD will be starting off with a bolder body sculpted for the heavy-duty functionality it gets its name for. Although some may confuse it with the Silverado 1500, aside from the roof, every piece of sheet metal is exclusive to Silverado HD. Built from the ground-up, this assembly plant is going to have a lot of work to meet the standards of Chevrolet and Chevrolet consumers.

Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Configurator Build

Are you ready for your own 2019 Chevrolet Silverado? An icon of the automaker, this pickup truck has made a name for itself over the last 100 years. The Chevrolet Silverado even got a special Centennial Edition in 2017, commemorating 100 years of Chevy pickup trucks. 100 years, and the good news still keeps pouring in. For one thing, Chevrolet has introduced a special edition for the 2019 model year that literally give us goosebumps – the 2019 Chevy Silverado Trail Boss Z71 turned into the Chevrolet Hennessey Goliath. Now, with the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado heading to dealerships, consumers can finally build their own.

Building Your 2019 Chevrolet Silverado

Although shipped out, the 2019 Chevy Silverado is currently being delivered in low quantity (as of November 8, 2018). Dealership lots will receive more as orders are placed, but for now, enjoy the thought of building one. Known as the “all-new” Silverado, being in its fourth generation for 2019, the configurator (bit.ly/2DtM9y1) has been designed to show off some of the new features and available options, like modern technology or an off-road package.

Although the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado has a starting MSRP of $28,300 (plus destination fee), the first build to pop up in the configurator is for $49,795 (plus destination fee). This will give consumers an idea of the differences something as simple as the cab size, drivetrain, or engine can make, before even a trim is chosen. The default setup is a double cab with a standard bed, four-wheel drive, and the 5.3-liter EvoTec V8 engine with Dynamic Fuel Management (DFM). Changing either of these will show the consumer the new net price in the top right in real-time.

Update: The Chevrolet Blazer – Don’t Call it a Comeback

Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Chevrolet Blazer

Chevrolet is joining in on the crossover utility vehicle (CUV) fun with the revamped 2019 Chevy Blazer. Traditionally designed as an off-road vehicle starting back in the 1960s, subsequently downsized in the 1990s as the S-10 model and effectively discontinued in 2005, it’s no small feat that the Blazer was overdue for a comeback. Diehards will decry its reincarnation as a crossover vehicle, departing from its off-roading roots, however, the new Chevy Blazer is a car made for this era. Inspired by the design lines of the also newly refreshed Camaro, the Blazer is a crossover that wants to hit the ground running against other vehicles of its class – exploiting its precise balance of power and modern looks.

Ditching its old body-on-frame construction platform, the new Blazer opts for a unibody construction platform – more suitable for its reincarnation as a road-friendly crossover. Slated to bridge the gap between Chevy’s current lineup of Equinox and Traverse vehicles, the 2019 Blazer will give the public an exciting option between performance and stylish looks.

The Blazer will be powered by a standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine clocking in with 193 horsepower, or in the case of the RS version, it will be powered by an optional 3.6-liter V6 engine able to generate 305 horsepower. Both engines will feature a standard nine-speed automatic transmission; front-wheel drive is offered as the standard drivetrain unless you’re interested in the ultra modern twin-clutch all-wheel-drive system, that is also available.

Miami Lakes 2019 Chevy Silverado

The wait is almost over – in only a few more months the new 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 will be out and ready to drive. The new pickup truck will have new and exemplary features, including a bigger and stronger bed and also a powerful, yet, fuel efficient engine. To add to those amazing improvements to the luxurious interior and entertainment system is definitely something to get excited about.

Each 2019 Chevy Silverado will have bigger and better truck beds. These beds are made of steel to make sure that each bed can hold as much weight as possible and be as durable. In fact, this new bed can hold one and a half times the amount of strength of its predecessor, making it that much more awesome. The bed is also strategically designed as two pieces.

The reason for this is because of the conservation of space – Having the bed made of two pieces saves weight and makes for a 23 percent increase of space for the bed. With that being said, there is an added amount of almost seven inches of floor width space. For convenience, there is a button on every key fob of the vehicle to open and close the tailgate, and another great and easy option is to press a button to do the same for opening the tailgate of the bed from within the cabin of the vehicle.

Off-Road Capabilities of the 2018 Chevy Colorado

2018-Chevrolet-Colorado-ZR2-Miami-Lakes-Automall

Just named a 2018 Autotrader Must Test Drive Award winner, the Chevy Colorado ZR2 should be high on every consumers list if they are searching for a new truck.

Introduced for the 2018 model year is the all-new Chevy Colorado ZR2, and it is an off-roading machine. Available with a 3.6-liter V6 engine or a 2.8-liter turbo diesel engine, the Colorado ZR2 dominates the midsize pickup truck class.

Thanks to the Colorado’s unique size and catalog of standard off-road features, the Colorado ZR2 is the truck for anyone that wants a truck that is fun to drive and can handle all types of terrain. In comparison to standard Colorado models, the Colorado ZR2 has a suspension that is 2 inches higher as well as rear and front track widths that are 3.5 inches wider.

The Colorado ZR2 features front and rear electronic locking differentials that make it possible for the truck to conquer steep terrains or crawl over rocks. To protect the truck from rocks or other debris from damaging the truck, the Colorado ZR2 has a shield that protects the transfer case and modified bumpers. The vehicle’s modified bumpers increase the vehicle’s ground clearance to 8.9 inches, and the front bumper has a thick, aluminum skid plate that protects the radiator and engine oil pan.

Though the primary inspiration of the Colorado is off-roading, the Colorado is equipped with several features that make it an excellent daily driver. Not only does the truck have the convenience of a truck bed, but it is fitted with Active Tow, a trailering package and a brake controller, so it is an excellent truck for towing purposes and when the Colorado is equipped with the 2.8L diesel engine it has a maximum towing capacity of 7,700 pounds.

To help offer drivers as many conveniences as possible, the Colorado ZR2 is available with OnStar 4G LTE WiFi as well as a handy touchscreen that provides drivers with easy access to entertainment options as well as certain car functions.

Chevy Debuts New Commercial-Duty Silverado 4500HD, 5500HD, 6500HD

Friday, March 16th, 2018

Chevrolet Unveils the 2019 Silverado 4500HD, 5500HD and 6500HD a

As Chevy said they’d do, Chevy debuted the new Chevy Silverado medium-duty truck at the Work Truck Show in early March, but Chevy kept a secret until its debut. Originally the new medium-duty Silverado lineup was only going to include the Class 4 (Silverado 4500HD) and Class 5 (Silverado 550HD) truck, but now we know that Chevy will also make a Class 6 (Silverado 6500 HD) truck as well.

Chevy’s expansion into medium-duty trucks is not entirely new for the automaker. Before 2009 Chevy offered medium-duty trucks, but they paused production on that until now, and Chevy intends to come back strong, and competitors like Ford and Ram will definitely have new competition.

According to an article published by Automotive News, “GM executives, however, believe the Silverado 4500HD, 5500HD and 6500HD are differentiated enough from the competition to eventually gain upward of a 25 to 30 percent share of the medium-duty truck segment, matching pre-bankruptcy levels.”

The inspiration behind the design of the new trucks came from listening to the needs and wants of the people that will be using and working with the trucks, including fleet managers, truck drivers, upfitters, technicians and Chevrolet dealers.

The new Silverado 4500HD, Silverado 550HD and Silverado 6500HD will be equipped with a  6.6-liter Duramax diesel engine that produces 350 horsepower and 700 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine will be paired to an Allison transmission with a Power Take Off (PTO) option and the trucks will be available in two-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive.

“When you consider all of the flexibility, capability and durability we have engineered into the Silverado, along with the proven power of Allison transmissions and the Duramax diesel engine, we have a medium duty truck line that will appeal to both Chevrolet loyalists and competitive owners alike,” said John Schwegman, director of Commercial Product and Medium Duty at GM Fleet.

In addition to offering solutions to problems dealers and drivers have experienced with other commercial trucks, Chevy has also made technology a big focus. The new commercial Silverado trucks will be available with OnStar and Commercial Link, a built-in 4GLTE Wi-Fi hotspot (paid data plan required), wireless cellphone charging, Bluetooth and support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Chevy says production of the new fleet will begin in late 2018 and pricing will be announced this summer.
