COUNTRY MUSIC STATION CELEBRATES 100 YEARS OF CHEVY TRUCKS

Chevrolet launches Chevy Truck 100 Pandora station  


DETROIT — For the last 100 years, Chevrolet trucks have found their way into the hearts and souls of fans around the world — and into countless country music songs.

In honor of the Chevy Truck Centennial, the brand has curated a Pandora station called Chevy Truck 100 to celebrate its connection with country music. The station includes country songs referencing pickups, such as rocking dance tunes about a Silverado with horns on the grille, love songs about a boy in a Chevy truck that had a tendency to get stuck and nostalgic tracks about ridin’ round with windows down on a summer night.

To access the station, visit www.pandora.com/ChevyTruck100.

Chevy trucks and Chevrolet are so common in country music because they play an outsized role in the lives of singers, songwriters and their fans, according to Frank Rogers, a record producer and songwriter with five Academy of Country Music awards and more than 70 Top twenty 20 hits to his name.

“At its most basic level, every song tells a story, while the very best songs also make an emotional connection with the audience,” said Rogers. “For artists, many of us grew up riding in a Chevy truck, making it a natural way to tell the story of our experiences. For our fans, a reference to a Chevy truck is something they can instantly relate to, helping make the story relevant to their life as well.”

For Sandor Piszar, marketing director for Chevrolet Trucks, the catalog of songs that reference Chevrolet trucks is a testament to the brand’s immeasurable impact on owners’ lives.

“We have built 85 million Chevy trucks over the past 100 years,” said Piszar. “In turn, our customers have created millions of memories associated with our trucks, be it working in the field or job site, cruising with friends or camping with families. That connection with generations of people is a defining characteristic of Chevy trucks, and something few other brands can match.”

This list would not be complete without input from our fans, who are invited to join the conversation at www.facebook.com/chevytrucks. There, Chevrolet enthusiasts can share their favorite Chevy songs and help complete the list of the top 100 country songs about Chevrolet Trucks.

GREAT MOMENTS IN CHEVY TRUCKS TORQUE HISTORY

Landmark engines, advanced technology drive 
100 years of capability


DETROIT — Torque is power. More specifically, it’s the twisting force an engine generates, and for 100 years Chevy Trucks have offered the torque that customers of 85 million trucks have relied on for hauling cargo and pulling trailers, on and off the clock.

“Chevrolet Trucks have pulled their weight for a century,” said Dan Nicholson, vice president, Global Propulsion Systems. “Nobody does torque like Chevrolet and generations have counted on our trucks to get the job done confidently.”

Chevy Trucks have come a long way from the original 1918 One-Ton model, which featured a 2.8L four-cylinder engine with an estimated 45 lb-ft of torque. Its closest contemporary engine is the standard 2.5L four-cylinder engine in the Colorado, which is rated at 191 lb-ft of torque, or 76 lb-ft per liter — a 480 percent increase over the 1918 engine.

At the far end of the spectrum is the contemporary Silverado 3500HD one-ton truck, with the available Duramax 6.6L turbo-diesel V-8. Its 910 lb-ft of torque equates to an incredible 138 lb-ft per liter, for great trailering confidence even on tough grades.

“Technological advances such as direct injection and turbocharging help contemporary Chevy Truck engines deliver more torque per liter of displacement than ever,” says Nicholson. “That means customers can do more and haul more than ever.”

The increase in Chevy Truck capability has been driven over the decades by the enduring performance of several landmark engine families sharing an elegant, overhead-valve architecture that contributes to signature low-rpm torque production, reduced complexity and compact packaging.

As the brand celebrate 100 years of trucks, here’s an overview of the most significant milestones in Chevrolet torque.

1929: The First “Stovebolt” Six
Introduced in 1929, Chevrolet’s first overhead-valve inline-six engine brought big torque to the masses. Displacing 194 cubic inches (3.2L), its all-new design helped generate strong torque at low rpm: approximately 120 lb-ft at only 800 rpm. That allowed Chevrolet to increase its work-truck load rating from 1 ton to 1.5 tons. The Stovebolt nickname was based on external fasteners that resembled the bolts on wood-burning stoves, but it quickly became synonymous with the engine’s durability. Several generations of Chevrolet’s overhead-valve straight-six engine were developed from the original design and served in Chevy Trucks through the late 1980s.

1955: The First Small Block V-8
Chevrolet introduced its revolutionary overhead-valve V-8 engine, later to be dubbed the Small Block, in the 1955 “second series” truck lineup. That original 265-cubic-inch (4.3L) engine produced 238 lb-ft of torque at only 2,000 rpm and evolved into one of the industry’s most enduring engine architectures. About a decade after the Small Block was introduced, Chevy’s Big Block engine family — also an overhead-valve design —debuted, elevating capability to an unprecedented level for gas-powered trucks. The Small Block is currently in its fifth generation in 2018 Chevy Trucks, while the original Small Block and Big Block families live on as performance crate engines.

1987: Technology Helps Build Torque and Increase Efficiency
Until the early ’70s, increased displacement and higher compression were easy ways to build more horsepower and torque. That changed with industry mandates that dramatically affected traditional power-building techniques. Chevrolet traded high compression for high technology, developing electronic fuel injection that helped restore the torque of previous years with greater efficiency. Torque in the Small Block engine returned to 300 lb-ft in 1987 and got another 10 percent increase a few years later, with the 5.7L Vortec Small Block. Today the available 6.2L Small Block in the 2018 Silverado 1500 is rated at 460 lb-ft of torque, thanks to technologies including variable valve timing and direct injection, giving it the highest torque rating of any light-duty pickup V-8 engine.

2001: The Modern Diesel Era Begins With Duramax
Introduced in 2001 for Chevy’s HD trucks, the Duramax 6.6L turbo-diesel, with overhead valves and 520 lb-ft of torque, was an all-new design that established a new era of capability. Technological advances pushed its output higher, and today the second-generation iteration available in the 2018 Silverado HD lineup offers 910 lb-ft of torque — a stunning 75 percent leap in torque from the same 6.6L displacement as the original, which re-set the performance bar for HD trucks. Car and Driver recorded 0-60 mph in 6.2 seconds in a Duramax-powered Silverado, the quickest time it’s tested for a HD truck, while TFLTruck recorded a climb up the Eisenhower grade in Colorado in 10:16.99 minutes. That was about 12 seconds faster than the nearest one-ton competitor, with each pulling 22,800 pounds.

CHEVROLET PRESENTS SILVERADO CENTENNIAL EDITION PICKUP TO WILLIE MAYS WORLD SERIES MVP GEORGE SPRINGER


LOS ANGELES— The 2017 Willie Mays World Series Most Valuable Player, George Springer, was presented with a 2018 Chevrolet Silverado Centennial Edition pickup in recognition of his strong performance on the field as the Houston Astros won the first World Series championship in their franchise history.

Springer, the Astros centerfielder, went 11-for-29 with five home runs and seven RBI. He tied the record for the most home runs in a World Series, a feat achieved by only two other players – Reggie Jackson with the New York Yankees in 1977 and Chase Utley with the Philadelphia Phillies in 2009.

A media panel and online fan votes on MLB.com, the club sites and the MLB.com At Bat app helped determine the MVP Award winner. Earlier this year, Major League Baseball honored Hall of Famer Willie Mays by renaming the MVP award in recognition of his many contributions to the game.

“In a matchup of the two best teams in baseball, George Springer’s performance on the field tonight and throughout the World Series truly embodies the same ‘Never Give Up’ spirit that drives the Chevrolet team to win every day,” said Brian Sweeney, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet. “We are proud to recognize Springer’s tremendous efforts with the Willie Mays World Series MVP award and the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado Centennial Edition pickup.”

Chevrolet has been the Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball since 2005 and through its Chevrolet Youth Baseball program has helped raise more than $28 million to aid hometown teams over the last 10 years. Nearly 5.2 million young people in communities across the country have benefitted from the program, and more than 1,500 Chevrolet dealers are involved.

Chevrolet is also a proud sponsor of PLAY BALL, baseball’s collective effort to encourage young people and communities to participate in baseball- or softball-related activities, including formal leagues, events and casual forms of play.
