Can 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Topple Ford’s King-of-the-Hill F-Series?

Chevy’s complete makeover brings eight distinct models, new powertrains, including high-mileage diesel.

by on Jan.14, 2018

Design Director Mike Simcoe reveals how the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado went from design sketch to design masterpiece.

While SUVs have garnered most of the spotlight, pickups have been building momentum at a frantic pace over the last several years and, barring a complete economic meltdown or a surge past $4 a gallon for gas, few expect to see demand for those tough trucks taper off anytime soon.

So, General Motors’ timing could be particularly fortuitous as it prepares to roll out complete makeovers of its full-size pickup line-up. The process begins with the unveiling of the all-new, 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 at this week’s North American International Auto Show – and will continue when the Silverado HD and GMC Sierra pickups make their debut later this year.

“These are arguably the most important products in the Chevrolet portfolio,” said Global Chevrolet chief Alan Batey, as the new Silverado rolled onto the stage in front of a packed crowd at Detroit’s Eastern Market Saturday night. (more…)

First Look: 2019 Chevrolet Silverado

Chevy focuses on new steel alloys, rather than aluminum, with new truck.

by on Dec.18, 2017

Chevy is looking to lower the boom on its competition with a redesigned 2019 Silverado.

If there was a state car of Texas it would almost certainly be the pickup truck, a good reason why Chevrolet headed down to Dallas to give the world a first look at the 2019 Silverado.

Chevy is hoping the next-generation pickup will help it close in on the full-size segment’s sales leader, the Ford F-Series. Like its rival, the new Silverado boasts a new stylish exterior and plenty of new safety and infotainment technologies. But in sharp contrast to Ford’s shift to lightweight aluminum, Chevy says it’s sticking with steel.

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado will turn to “a higher-grade alloy (for) the roll-formed, high-strength-steel bed floor, contributing to a bed that is more functional and lighter weight,” General Motors’ largest division explained. (more…)

SUV sales are booming at Chevy led by the Traverse High Country Edition.

The American SUV market is showing no signs of cooling off and that has a lot of manufacturers thinking about what their product mix should look like, notably Chevrolet which is scoring big with new models like the 2018 Equinox and Traverse.

Parent General Motors has slashed production of slower selling models, primarily passenger cars like the Spark and Impala, while boosting output at truck plants, the three Equinox lines running “24/7,” according to Chevy marketing director Steve Majoros.

Chevy Goes Rock Crawling With New Colorado ZR2

Chevy pickup first off-roader to use Dynamic Suspension Dampers

by on Nov.16, 2016

Chevy hopes the new ZR2 model will convince truck buyers that its midsize model is a serious off-roader.

In the take-no-prisoners battle for midsize truck buyers, Chevrolet landed a strong punch with the return of the Colorado pickup a couple years back. But it has struggled to convince potential buyers that it has the chops for serious off-roading.

That’s about to change, or see Chevy hopes, with the launch of the Colorado ZR2, the production version of a diesel-powered, 2014 concept truck. Buyers will actually get the choice of gas or diesel, but the real news is that the ZR2 will be the first production off-road vehicle to use Multimatic Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve, or DSSV damper technology. That translates into a smooth, controlled ride both on-road and off.

Truck News!

Already found on the Chevrolet Corvette and Camaro models, and even on some Formula 1 race cars, Mark Reuss, executive vice president, Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain. “The ZR2 applies that same philosophy to off-road performance,” said Mark Reuss, General Motors global product development chief. “You can go rock crawling on Saturday, desert running on Sunday, and comfortably drive to work on Monday. This truck can do it all, and do it all well.” (more…)

Chevy Swaps Rock for Bryan

Brand inks Luke Bryan to deal replacing Kid Rock.

by on Jun.15, 2016

Chevrolet announced that it is expanding its country music ties by teaming up with award winning, country music superstar Luke Bryan.

Chevrolet unveiled its new brand spokesperson, country singing star, Luke Bryan, marking the end of its relationship Detroit-area country rocker Kid Rock – a move seen by some as giving into political correctness.

Rock’s deal with Chevy expired at the end of 2015 and the company elected not to renew it. Rock, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, and Chevy were thrust in the middle of a controversy last year involving the Confederate battle flag.

The flag – a controversial symbol linked to racism and slavery – was used by the singer in some of his on stage-appearances, though he had not done so for several years. Fans also often wave confederate flags at his concerts, which drew criticism during last summer’s debate over the symbolism of the flag. (more…)

by on Aug.06, 2015

Is the new 2016 Chevrolet Silverado going to follow Ford's lead and use more aluminum?

A few weeks back, Chevrolet took Ford to task for its extensive of use of aluminum in its new F-150 full-size pickup. The brand mocked the strength of the material and said it’s more costly to fix in a series of ads.
