Is Chevy’s Supercharger its Off-Road Pickup Contender?

 

Ever since Ford launched its Baja Raptor truck, there has been continuous talk from different companies claiming they brought forth an off-road pickup of their own, “only better and more ..” zzz…This little lie still has yet to become a reality, but in spite of the disappointing prospects from other automotive companies, Chevrolet is taking a crack at this challenge with a supercharged Silverado truck and according to some reports, may come relatively soon. 

On Monday, May 11, TFLTruck claimed that General Motors is developing a version of its supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine to squeeze between its new line of pickup trucks and SUVs. The automotive blog says this information comes from an anonymous source who is on the inside of the happenings in the power plant and says that it’s under consideration in spite of all of the chaos surrounding the current pandemic. This means that the hefty Silverado may have LT4 with 640 or 650 worth of horsepower, surpassing the Ford Raptor’s abilities. It is also claimed to be a worthy adversary in terms of its off-road skills.

On the other hand, the Muscle Cars and Trucks blog is reporting that there are rumors of the high-performance pickup by Chevrolet being put on a hiatus, also claiming that this information is from inside sources. According to the report, the only large truck that is in motion to obtain the LT4 is the Cadillac Escalade. 

Additionally, one should know that despite a Silverado aiming to have high-performance capabilities, there could be a delay of sorts due to the circumstances of the worldwide COVID-19 crisis, which has caused quite a strain on many automakers and car suppliers. Regardless of contradicting reports of General Motors shelving its pick-up project, this is highly unlikely, especially since Ram affirmed its intentions to enter the rat race for light-duty performance trucks, therefore, it would be foolish for Chevy to back down now. This is especially in the company’s best interest to redeem itself after Ram practically wore a white dress at Chevy’s wedding as it took over its pickup sales last year; its time for revenge.

Another “maybe no, maybe so “ Chevy model is the Silverado “ZRX”, it has a powerful V8 engine with a turned out suspension, and possibly some diversity similar to that of the Multimatic DSSV from the Colorado ZR2. The company just had the ZR2 name trademarked, although it still isn’t clear when its debut or even production will come into fruition.

5 Great Features About The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado

The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is no doubt an all-time classic, in fact, it is so recognizable that it has been listed as one of the most popular trucks on various websites. Simply put, when most people think of the word ‘truck’, they’ll immediately think of the Silverado. Twenty-two years after its first release in 1998, this hefty hunk is still hot stuff, as it has a very stylish exterior and lots of options for modifications. This half-ton stud has a plethora of powertrain choices that are promoted by a fuel-saving Duramax diesel that is rich in torque and also has a very quick and energetic 6.2-liter V-8 engine.

Those who aren’t used to driving trucks or really don’t care for them may be shocked to find how comfortable this year’s 1500 is and also how many high-tech features that it provides, like adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assists.

Whether or not you are a truck enthusiast or simply a curious soul imaging tackling the tough grounds of the earth like those cool people in the commercials, the Silverado has plenty of impressive features that make a great contender for your car buying choices. Here Are 5 Great Features About The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado.

Boatload Of Options

One of the best things about the classic truck is that buyers will have a lot of choices when it comes to different types of configurations and personal preferences. For example, the Silverado has over half a dozen powertrain options, it also has three different vehicle arrangements, and as many as eight trims to pick from. This Chevy vehicle can be converted into a basic truck for work or something that most would say is close to luxury.

Superman Strength

The second and perhaps most important feature of the Silverado is its remarkable torque. Let’s face it, having good torque is why most truck buyers would want to buy the 1500 in the first place, because it’s good at its job. This bad boy can tow up to 13,400 lbs with particular configurations, which is an improvement from its 2019 version by 1,200 lbs. This year’s Silverado is capable of lugging up to 2,000 pounds on its bed. No matter engine you opt for you’ll still get an incredible amount of power, and choosing a basic 4-cylinder engine would still allow the vehicle to haul up to 7,000 lbs.

Safety Options

Some might be surprised that this truck, which is known for getting down and dirty, has a lot of cool options for safety technologies, such as forward-collision warnings, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alerts, and lane departure warnings. Best of all, it includes plenty of great standard features like Infotainment 3 system (operated through a 7-inch touch screen), Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, plus a 6-speaker audio system, one USB port and a 12-volt outlet.

Comfortable Crusin’

Another unexpected feature of the Silverado is that it is incredibly comfortable. In lower trims, even though cloth upholstery and certain options may seem scarce compared to the higher tiers, the truck still has a quiet and perhaps even a relaxing ride. Of course, most would feel more comfortable in a higher trim since it has lots of leather, power conveniences, and more tech-options.

Its TrailBoss Trim Will Give You A Run For Your Money

Last but not least, a feature that makes the 2020 Silverado so great is its incredible Trailboss trim that comes off swingin’. This trim is a recommend for most buyers interested in 1500 because of its remarkable off-road option (also available for Custom and LT trims), it comes with two-inch factory suspension lift, a locking rear differential, skid plates, Rancho monotube shocks, hill descent control, and 18-inch wheels with Goodyear Duratrac off-road tires.

All in all, the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is a capable truck in every sense of the word. Luckily, Miami Lakes Automall has a variety of these models in its possession with different styles and trims, and most that cost under $40,000, (plus destination fee).
