• 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 4500HD and 5500HD Joining the Lineup

    Chevy Silverado

    If you love trucks and raw power, then you’ll love this recent announcement from Chevy: Chevy is unveiling the new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 4500HD and 5500HD this year. In fact, we only have to wait one more month, as the new medium-duty work trucks will be revealed at the Work Truck Show in Indianapolis. The show will be held March 6th through 9th at the Indiana Convention Center.

    So what do we know about these trucks ahead of the show, aside from the fact that we cannot wait to get them on the lot here at College Chevrolet Buick GMC? Not much, but enough to keep us counting down the days.

    We do know that the Silverado 4500HD and 5500HD trucks will be available in both crew and regular cab configurations, and drivers will be able to opt for 2WD and 4WD in a wide array of wheelbases and GVWRs. We also know these commercial trucks will be motivated by Chevy’s famous, efficient, and powerful Duramax diesel engine, mated to an Allison transmission. The medium-duty Silverados will feature advanced tech, like OnStar 4G LTE, and judging by the teaser photos, we can also expect big, bright fog lights and turn signals integrated into the side mirrors.

    As for the rest of the details—well, we’ll know next month.

    The Saturn Redline Editions were favorites of enthusiasts across the country but, alas, they’ve been gone for years now. While the Saturn brand may be off the market, Chevrolet is looking to revive the Redline Edition Series. The American brand pulled the cover off of several Redline-equipped vehicles at the Chicago Auto Show.

    The Chevrolet Redline Edition Series will spread to nine vehicles and offer significant changes in appearance from standard models. All nine automobiles are scheduled to hit the market by the end of 2017, giving enthusiasts another package to look forward to.

    The Redline package will feature black wheels with red hash marks, black nameplates with red outline, black grilles, and black bowtie logos. Some vehicles will also receive additional unique styling effects.

    Both the Chevrolet Colorado and Silverado made the cut and will feature red tow hooks when equipped with the Redline package. The Camaro will feature red hash marks above the wheels, a nod to the brand’s history on the track.

    Other vehicles set to see the Redline effect include the Malibu, Equinox, Traverse, Trax, and Cruze sedan and hatchback. The Silverado Redline is available for order from dealerships now.

    We here at College Chevrolet Buick can’t help but be excited for the return of the Redline Edition!

    Save Gas with a V6
    2014 Chevy Silverado

    Think you need a V8 in your pickup to get the job done? The Chevy Silverado says “you don’t have to buy a V8” with its all-new 4.3-liter EcoTec3 V6 engine. The 2014 Silverado pickup featuring the V6 engine provides all of the power and torque you need, without breaking the bank on your gas bill. This 4.3-liter engine makes 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque while still getting an astonishing 18 mpg city and 24 mpg highway.*

    In 2004, the Chevy Silverado featuring the 4.8-liter V8 engine got 285-horsepower and made 295 lb-ft of torque. Its competitors, the Ford F-150 featuring a 4.6-liter V8 engine made 231 horsepower and 293 lb-ft of torque while the Ram 4.7-liter V8 made 235 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque (2004 models). Both of these models from 2004 get under 19 mpg on the highway.* These comparisons show just how far the pickup truck segment has come over the past 10 years.

    Chevrolet is proud of their introduction of a capable V6 engine that they claim got its roots from the old small-block. If you would like to know more about the capabilities of the 2014 Silverado featuring a V6 engine, feel free to swing by our dealership in Albion, Michigan!
