Chevrolet has some special edition Silverado 1500 pickups coming soon. Two unique packages are being released, the return of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Midnight and Rally editions, first shown at the State Fair of Texas. The 2020 Silverado 1500 Midnight Edition has an all-black theme complete with its blacked-out 18-inch wheels, exhaust tips, doorsteps, badges, and a black grill. The Midnight Edition will be available for the LT Trail Boss as well as the Custom Trail Boss trims. The 2020 Silverado is already an off-road capable pickup, but this appearance package adds a solid and defined look to the latest 1500. Let’s go over the differences between these two packages returning to the Silverado 1500 line-up. 

Inside the Silverado Midnight Edition

Under the hood of the Silverado LT Trail Boss Midnight Edition, owners gain the 6.2-Liter V8 powertrain that equips 420 horsepower and a solid 460 lb-ft of torque. The engine is paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission and adds LED headlamps with dark bezels and stand daytime running lights. If owners opt for the Customer Trail Boss Midnight Edition, the choice of two powertrain options includes the 5.3-Liter V8 engine that carries a six-speed automatic transmission or they can opt for the larger 6.2-Liter V8 engine tied to the 10-speed automatic transmission. The Midnight Edition is a sleek looking package that has defined look customers hope to secure. The other Special Edition trim is equally as impressive with a wider color scheme for the body.

Everything About the Rally Edition

In regards to the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Rally Edition, owners looking for a modern urban appearance can find the special edition for the Custom and RST trims. Multiple bodycolor choices are offered included Red Hot, Silver Ice Metallic, Summit White or black. The Silverado RST and the Rally Edition have the body-colored grille with black stripes on the tailgate and over the hood. Black badging, black bowties, black exhaust tips with black 22-inch wheels. The Custom Rally Edition has black 20-inch wheels. Each Rally edition offers the 2.7-Liter turbo-four powertrain paired to an eight-speed automatic with the RST Rally Edition that can have the 5.3-Liter V8 or 6.2-Liter V8 engine.

The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Diesel Has the Highest EPA-Certified Fuel Economy

Monday, July 29th, 2019

The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 diesel has the highest EPA-certified fuel economy ratings for a 2020 full-size truck. The diesel powered Silverado delivers 23 mpg city/33 highway/27 combined. The 2020 Silverado 1500 premiers General Motors’ new diesel engine, which is a 3.0-liter Duramax turbocharged inline six-cylinder. It has a rating of 277 hp, and 460 pound-feet of torque and the powerplant will also be available in the GMC Sierra.

The Silverado diesel has a 10-speed automatic transmission and it also has a fuel-saving stop-start system. The Silverado has a six-mpg advantage over the Ram. The Ram can be expected to narrow the gap when it launches a new diesel later this year.

This summer Ram will offer the only other full-size light-duty diesel pickup which will launch an updated version of its 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6, and it had a rating at 20 mpg city/27 highway/23 combined when it was sold in 2017. Honda, Toyota, and Nissan vehicles do not offer diesel engines in their light-duty trucks, even though the Titan by Nissan has a Cummins diesel motor which is considered a heavy-duty truck, like the Ford F-250.

How Long Is It On Top?

The Silverado will probably hold the fuel economy title in the future. The F-150 would need significant upgrades to eclipse the Chevy truck. To surpass Silverado’s 1500 diesel vehicle, Ram would need to boost highway fuel economy by more than 20 percent.

Chevrolet boasts the industry’s most extensive diesel lineup with the addition of the Silverado 1500 diesel. The fuel-saving engine is available in midsize Colorado, new medium-duty Silverado, and the heavy-duty Silverado. Chevrolet’s 1500 diesel can tow up to 9,300 pounds, and it can haul 1,870 pounds of cargo in its bed. 

More Than A Drivetrain:

Silverado’s executive chief engineer, Tim Herrick, said that the diesel’s fuel economy rating is in the result of more of the efficient drivetrain on the vehicle. While the Silverado is known for its busy styling, Herrick explained during a walk-around of the truck, how the air curtains on the lower front fenders improve the aerodynamics.

“The proportions of the truck, the roofline, the mirrors, air curtains, everything was in line with getting the aerodynamics that could get us great fuel economy,” he said. The truck’s driving range drives more than 600 miles on a full tank. Although the entire 2019 EPA fuel economy guide is not published yet, the Silverado diesel has a reasonable shot at becoming the most fuel-efficient pickup regardless of size. 

In the 2019 guide, there is no two-wheel-drive pickup with a higher ranking, and all of the other competitors are way behind. However, the Silverado diesel’s fuel economy is higher than the GMC Canyon and the lighter Chevrolet Colorado. Those pickups can also be ordered with diesel engines, but the highest fuel economy ratings are 20 mpg city/30 highway/23 combined.

For 2020, Chevrolet makes the most reliable, and most advanced Silverado with several new features that include the new 10-speed automatic transmission which is paired with the 5.3L V-8 standard on the LT Trail Boss. It is available on the High Country with the legendary 6.2L V-8 which is offered on the Custom Trail Boss, LT Trail Boss and RST trim. The available technologies, including new trailering features and Adaptive Cruise Control – Camera.

“In today’s truck market, customers continually demand more features, more technology, and more capability,” said Tim Herrick, chief executive engineer of Full-Size Trucks. “For 2020, we are delivering more in each of these areas. As a result, the Silverado now offers customers the most towing capacity of any light-duty pickup and the most affordable light-duty truck with more than 400 horsepower.”

More than half of the Silverado trim levels will be available with the 6.2L V-8 with an SAE-certified 420 hp for 2020 and a 460 lb-ft of torque, which is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. For the LT Trail Boss and the Custom Trail Boss, that power has a 2-inch factory suspension lift, and the Z71 Off-Road Package has skid plates, a locking rear differential, 18-inch wheels, Rancho monotube off-road shocks, and Goodyear Duratrac off-road tires. The Custom Trail Boss, with its 6.2L V-8 engine, starts at $43,865 (which includes the destination fee), and it makes this vehicle the most affordable light-duty truck with more than 400 horsepower available.

“The Trail Boss models are already some of the most popular in the Silverado franchise,” said director of Chevrolet Truck Marketing Sandor Piszar. “Adding the available 6.2L V-8 will ratchet that excitement up even further. Starting under $44,000 for the Custom Trail Boss, Chevrolet offers enthusiasts an affordable truck with serious performance on and off-road.”

New for 2020, is the engine which is a 6.2L V-8, available on the Silverado RST models which come equipped with four-wheel drive as well. Because of it, the maximum when it comes to towing on the Silverado is increased to 13,400 pounds when it’s properly equipped. If the driver wants even more when it comes to performance, the Silverado 6.2L has a Performance Upgrade Package that delivers a cat-back performance exhaust system and performance air intake, raising the output to 435 horsepower and 469 lb-ft of torque.

2020 Silverado HD Is Wildly Impressive

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.

Silverado Options For All

Chevrolet has enjoyed a good year for both innovative new vehicles and more acclaim for their craftsmanship. Chevy found success with their all-new 2019 Silverado 1500 and 2019 Chevy Trax. As 2018 draws to an end, let’s recap the latest Chevy vehicles that have come out. Let’s start with the all-new Chevrolet Silverado, a stunning example of one of the highlights in 2018 for Chevrolet. There’s something for everyone within the latest Chevy vehicles!

All-New 2019 Chevrolet Silverado

The newest Silverado from Chevrolet is an enhanced and well amplified light-duty pickup truck. The 2019 Silverado extended its bed size by 10 cubic feet from the former model and worked to claim the Best-in-class cargo volume, box length and box depth. Through the enhancement of their truck bed, new frame and overall interior, Chevy knew they had to name their truck bed to differentiate itself from other companies. They named the truck bed the Chevy Durabed and it is far more superior than what is offered from the competition in the pickup market. The Durabed is so strong it can endure 72518.9 pounds of pressure-per-square-inch, reaching over double the former Silverado rating from the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado truck.

Not only did the Durabed help raise the value of the all-new Silverado, owners have the choice of three available transmissions, (six, eight and 10-speed options). The Crew Cab models have increased the to over 500 pounds more with the maximum towing capacity up to 12,200 pounds with the 6.2-Liter V8 engine and four-wheel-drive. Owners will also have best-in-class box depth and box length at floor, with the standard box reaching 79 inches, 3 more than the Ford F-Series and Ram 1500. The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado starts at $29,795 MSRP (plus destination fee) for the base model Work Truck. The most valuable, superior 2019 Silverado High Country begins at $54,495 MSRP (plus destination fee). Thanks to the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado, Chevy has attracted many new customers. (more…)

2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 Configurations, Engines and Trims

Friday, March 23rd, 2018

Chevy-Silverado-1500-truck-bed-step-miami-lakes-chevy

Consumers that are new to the truck world sometimes feel a little confused by all of the options. One way to narrow down the search for a new truck is by considering dependability, and considering that the Chevy Silverado was just named the Most Dependable in its class in the 2018 J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study, that’s not a hard decision. However, even when the options have been narrowed down to the Chevy Silverado there are still a lot of decisions to make about their Silverado like which engine option, which trim and which drivetrain, do I want?

We’re here to try and make it easier for consumers to find out which 2018 Silverado 1500 truck options, and there are a lot of them,  will be best for their needs. The Chevy Silverado 1500 is available in six trims, with three engine options, two drivetrains (2WD or 4WD), three cab options and three truck bed lengths (short bed, standard bed or long bed). There are also several different packages available with various trims.

Cab Options and Truck Bed Lengths

The three available cabin sizes on the 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 are the two-door regular cab, four-door crew cab and four-door double cab, and the crew cab is the larger four-door option. The crew cab and double cab are available with five or six passenger seating, and that depends on the configuration of the front seats. Trucks with a a front bench seat provide seating for up to six passengers and trucks with two front bucket seats only provide seating for up to five passengers.

Engines

4.3L Engine

There are three engines available on the Silverado lineup. The smallest engine is the 4.3-liter V6 engine and it produces 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque and a maximum towing capacity of 7,600 pounds. The 4.3L engine gives the Chevy Silverado 1500 an average fuel economy of 18 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.

5.3L Engine

A step up from the 4.3L engine is the 5.3-liter V8 engine, which generates 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. The 5.3L engine gives the 2018 Silverado 1500 a max towing capacity of 11,100 pounds and a fuel economy of 16 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway. In select states, Chevy offers the engine with eAssist technology, which adds a battery component into the powertrain to assist with certain engine tasks, and the battery component boosts torque and increases fuel economy. The 5.3L with eAssist technology has a fuel economy of 18 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.

6.2L V8 Engine

The Chevy Silverado 1500 is also available with a 6.2-liter V8 that’s capable of producing 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. The 6.2L increases the Chevy Silverado’s towing capacity to 12,500 pounds, which is a best-in-class towing capacity for V8 engines. When the Silverado 1500 is equipped with the 6.2L engine it has an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 15 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway.

Trims

Decisions are a little more difficult to make when it comes to deciding on which trim to get because the Silverado 1500 is available with a great selection of trims.  

Silverado 1500 WT

The base trim is the WT or “Work Truck” trim and it is a no frills trim that is affordable and provides all of the essentials needed to get a job done. To make it easy for people to get the truck they need for business needs, the Silverado 1500 WT is available with three cab sizes and three truck bed lengths and it comes standard with the 4.3L V6 engine, but the 5.3L engine is an available upgrade. Like all Chevy trucks, the Silverado 1500 WT comes standard with GM’s signature CornerStep rear bumper, which is a textured step pad located on both sides of the truck bed, and it makes it easier for people to get in and out of the truck bed. The Silverado 1500 WT also comes standard with solar-absorbing glass, cab-mounted cargo area lamps, daytime running lights and 17-inch steel wheels.

Even though the Silverado 1500 WT is the base trim, Chevy still believes in the importance of equipping their vehicle with modern tech features, so the Silverado 1500 WT comes standard with a 7-inch color touch screen, Bluetooth, a six-speaker audio system and Chevy MyLink, which is Chevy’s name brand infotainment system. Since the Silverado 1500 WT is built for business and work, the crew cab and double cab configurations have a 40/20/40 front split-bench seat, so there is room for six passengers, which is helpful on days where an extra person is needed at the job site. The Silverado 1500 WT is equipped with a rubberized vinyl floor covering, which protects the floor from dirt and is also easy to clean.

Silverado 1500 LS/ LT

The Silverado 1500 LS and LT trims are a step above the Silverado 1500 WT, so it has some additional standard features, but it comes standard with the 4.3L V6 engine and the 5.3L V8 engine is an available option. The Silverado 1500 LS and LT trims are available in all three cab sizes and with all three truck beds, however, the LT is available as the 1LT or 2LT (also referred to as LT L71) and 2LT trims are only available with 4WD, but 1LT trims are available with 2WD or 4WD. Like the Silverado WT, the Silverado LS is equipped with Chevy MyLink, a 7-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth and a six-speaker system, however it also features remote keyless entry, a feature that is not available on the Silverado 1500 WT. The Silverado LT is equipped with a larger 8-inch touchscreen. For maximum seating options, the Silverado 1500 LS and LT features the same 40/20/40 front split-bench seat that provides seating for up to six passengers.

The exterior of the Silverado LS and LT includes the CornerStep bumpers, and it has chrome front and rear bumpers, which is an upgrade in comparison to the black front and rear bumpers that are on the Silverado 1500 WT. The Silverado 1500 LT is equipped with 17-inch bright machined aluminum wheels and the Silverado LS has 17-inch stainless-steel clad wheels.

Silverado 1500 Custom

The Chevy Silverado 1500 Custom is only available with the four-door cab options, the crew cab or double cab, and double cab is only available with a short box and the crew cab is available with a short box or standard box. Like the Silverado 1500 WT, LT and LS trims, the Silverado 1500 Custom comes standard with a 4.3L V6 engine, but the 5.3L V8 engine is an available upgrade. The Silverado 1500 Custom comes standard with deep-tinted rear glass, heated and power-adjustable exterior mirrors and two front recovery hooks. The Custom truck trim comes standard with an 8-inch touchscreen, HD radio and Chevy MyLink, Bluetooth and a six-speaker audio system.

Silverado 1500 LTZ

Like the Silverado LT, which is available with two variations, the LTZ is available as the 1LTZ or a 2LTZ (also referred to as the LTZ Z71) and the 1LTZ is available with 2WD or 4WD and the 2LTZ is only available with 4WD. The Silverado LTZ comes standard with the 355-horsepower 5.3L V8 engine and the 6.2L V8 engine is an available upgrade. In addition to having chrome front and rear bumpers and recovery hooks, the Silverado 1500 LTZ is equipped with fog lights, rear wheel house liners, and the EX-Lift and Lower tailgate, which makes it much easier to open and close the tailgate and also includes a locking feature.

The Silverado 1500 LTZ has a couple interior features that aren’t available on the previous Silverado 1500 trims. In addition to all of the standard interior features on the Silverado 1500 Custom, the Silverado 1500 LTZ features SiriusXM satellite radio, floor carpeting, driver and front passenger heated seats, as well as leather seats.

Silverado 1500 High Country

The Chevy Silverado 1500 High Country trim is the most luxurious trim of all the Silverado 1500 trims. The Silverado 1500 High Country is only available with the crew cab configuration and it comes standard with the 5.3L V8 engine, but the 6.2L V8 engine is an available option. In addition to all of the features on the Silverado 1500 LTZ, the Silverado 1500 High Country trim comes standard with the trailering package, 20-inch chrome wheels and all-season tires. The Silverado 1500 High Country has a more distinct look than other Silverado 1500 trims because it has a different grille design that is a shiny chrome. For ultimate comfort and convenience, the Silverado 1500 High Country has leather seating and the front seats are two bucket seats rather than the three-passenger front bench seat. The steering wheel and front seats are heated and there are convenient audio and radio controls on the steering wheels. The vehicle also has an upgraded Bose sound system as well as front and rear floor carpet and carpeted mats.
