2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD


Chevrolet debuted the full lineup of its all-new 2020 Silverado HD — the strongest, most capable Silverado HD ever. Max towing capability increases an enormous 52 percent to an available 35,500 pounds. It is also the third all-new Silverado in just 18 months, each designed for different customers. “We set out to make the best HD trucks on the market, bar none,” said Jaclyn McQuaid, chief engineer, Silverado HD. “We increased towing capabilities across the line, not just for dually buyers. We added class-leading towing technologies, such as 15 available camera views, to make trailering more convenient, whether pulling a large cargo trailer or fifth-wheel camper. And we made a host of changes make tasks easier.” Built at the Flint Assembly plant in Flint, Michigan, the all-new 2020 Silverado HD is longer, wider and taller than its predecessor with a wheelbase that’s been stretched 5.2 inches on Crew Cab models and is scaled for HD customers. The Silverado HD will be available in five distinct trim levels — Work Truck, Custom, LT, LTZ and High Country — available across 22 cab, bed, chassis and driveline configurations. Customers can choose between two new powertrains. The standard engine is a new 6.6L V-8 gas with direct injection making 401 hp and 464 lb-ft of torque mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. That’s an 11 percent increase in horsepower and a 22 percent increase in peak torque, respectively, resulting in 18 percent more towing capability. Then there’s the legendary Duramax 6.6L Turbo-Diesel V-8 engine making 445 hp and 910 lb-ft of torque coupled with an all-new Allison 10-speed automatic transmission. In addition, every component between the transmission and the wheels has been upgraded to enable an available 52-percent increase in max towing capability — now up to 35,500 pounds on Regular Cab, two-wheel drive, DRW, diesel models. 2020 Silverado HD highlights: ▪ New, more powerful 6.6L V-8 gas engine with direct injection for greater performance and stronger trailering capability with 22 percent more torque and up to 18 percent more towing compared to the previous 6.0L gas engine. ▪ All-new Allison 10-speed automatic transmission is matched with the available Duramax 6.6L V-8 Turbo-Diesel engine for a 52 percent increase in max towing to 35,500 pounds on properly equipped models. ▪ The autotrac active two-speed transfer case on 4x4 models electronically controls “4 Auto” mode, allowing the truck to seamlessly shift between two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive based on road conditions. ▪ Advanced Trailering System technologies and new transparent trailer view: The in-vehicle trailering system features an available total of 15 available camera views (requires an installed accessory camera), such as HD Surround Vision1 and other unique views including a transparent trailer feature to help provide added confidence when towing. Also features increased integration with the myChevrolet mobile app. ▪ HD-exclusive sculpted exterior design features the most differentiation from the Silverado 1500 ever — the roof is the only shared sheet metal. ▪ Heavy-duty details designed to make work easier and more intuitive, including features such as an easy-access engine block heater outlet, easy-to-fill diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) tank with an opening inside the fuel door, a more integrated snow plow prep package and new, advanced trailering mirrors with available spot lamps and more. ▪ BedStep feature and larger CornerSteps makes it easier to load or reach items in the cargo box, which is designed to hold a pair of size-12 boots and up to 500 pounds. ▪ Larger cab enables more spacious interiors with Crew Cab models adding about 3 inches in overall length. 2020 Silverado HD Specifications: ▪ Length/width/height/wheelbase Regular Cab – 235.5/81.9/79.8/141.5 in (5,982/2,079/2,027/3,595 mm) ▪ Length/width/height/wheelbase Double Cab – 240.4/81.9/79.8/149.4 in (6,107/2,079/2,027/3,795 mm) ▪ Length/width/height/wheelbase Crew Cab – 250/81.9/79.8/158.9 in (6,349/2,079/2,027/4,037 mm) ▪ Curb weight – 6,092-8,018 lb (2,763-3,637 kg) ▪ Engine – 6.6-liter, 8-cyliner (V8), petrol ▪ Max output – 401 hp (299 kW) at 5,200 rpm ▪ Max torque – 464 lb-ft (629 Nm) at 4,000 rpm ▪ Transmission – 6-speed automatic ▪ Engine – 6.6-liter, 8-cyliner (V8), turbo diesel ▪ Max output – 445 hp (332 kW) at 2,800 rpm ▪ Max torque – 910 lb-ft (1,234 Nm) at 1,600 rpm ▪ Transmission – 10-speed automatic

Know Your Trailer Tongue Weight. The Weigh Safe Hitch


The Weigh Safe Drop Hitch is the one and only trailer hitch with a built-in scale that signals you to adjust your load before you hit the road, resulting in a much safer and enjoyable towing experience. Before this ball mount, gauging your trailer’s tongue weight was a hassle. You had to rely on inefficient bathroom scales, make a trip to the weigh station or purchase a separate tongue weight scale. But with the Weigh Safe’s built-in scale, measuring your tongue weight is as easy as coupling your trailer to your ball mount. Simply hook-up your trailer to the Weigh Safe ball mount just as you would any other ball mount. The weight of your trailer will push down on the hitch ball, which in turn pushes down on an internal hydraulic piston that sits on a bed of oil. When the piston drops into the oil, the pressure reading is sent out to the scale.

Chevrolet Drives Into Fourth Year Of Fellowship For HBCU Journalism Students


Six Discover the Unexpected fellows 

will work in NNPA newsrooms


2019-06-07
DETROIT — Chevrolet and the National Newspaper Publishers Association selected six students from Historically Black Colleges and Universities for the 2019 Discover the Unexpected Journalism Fellowship. With the help of NNPA editors and reporters, the fellows will travel the country to discover and share positive, inspirational and relevant stories from African American communities during their eight-week summer internship.
The 2019 DTU Journalism Fellows are Tedarius Abrams (Bethune-Cookman), Tyla Barnes (Hampton University), Elae Hill (North Carolina A&T), Miana Massey (Howard University), Emani Nichols (Morehouse College) and Sharon Joy Washington (Florida A&M).  
Chevrolet will award each DTU Fellow a $10,000 scholarship and a $5,000 stipend. The students will form two teams of three people, and each team will have access to an all- new 2019 Chevrolet Blazer during their reporting assignments.
The annual DTU program has awarded more than $330,000 in scholarships and stipends since 2015.  The program started with a select number of schools and, based on the overwhelming response, the online submission process was opened to all HBCU students in their sophomore through senior years with an interest in journalism, communications, mass media or visual arts.
“Our partnership with the NNPA continues to provide a unique platform to connect with young and remarkable storytellers.” said Paul Edwards, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet Marketing. “From the inaugural launch at Howard University to the inclusion of all the HBCUs, it’s Chevrolet’s pleasure to partner with members of the African American community, ensuring a legacy is established for generations to come. We’re thrilled to meet this year’s group of fellows and immerse them in all things Chevrolet.”
“The NNPA is excited to partner with Chevrolet for another year in support of young journalists to amplify community voices across our country,” said NNPA President and CEO Dr. Benjamin F. Chavis Jr. “Having these young journalists in our newsrooms working side by side with our editors and writers is inspiring and we are committed to including young storytellers’ voices in our reporting.”
The DTU Fellowship takes place June 6-Aug. 1, 2019. DTU fellows will work with the Atlanta Voice, Chicago Crusader, Houston Forward Times and The Washington Informer. The fellows’ journey begins in Atlanta, where they’ll participate in two days of journalism training with Chevrolet and NNPA leadership before they hit the road to begin their reporting assignments. Their stories will be featured on the NNPA website (www.nnpa.org/chevydtu) throughout the summer.
Disc jockey and music producer DJ Envy, a co-host of the syndicated radio show “The Breakfast Club,” will be the program’s national spokesperson. Musician and author Fonzworth Bentley will serve as the fellows’ Road Trip Advisor. Both are HBCU alums — DJ Envy graduated from Virginia’s Hampton University and Bentley is a Morehouse College graduate.

Chevrolet Debuts All-New 2021 Trailblazer, Grows Brand's SUV Family



Trailblazer enters one of the fastest-growing SUV segments


2019-05-29

DETROIT — The Trailblazer joins the Chevrolet portfolio in early 2020, and with this new entry Chevrolet offers customers one of the broadest lineups of crossovers and SUVs. Positioned between the Trax and Equinox, the 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer will join the fast-growing small SUV segment.

“The Trailblazer’s great design enables more personalization,” said Steve Majoros, director of Chevrolet passenger car and crossover marketing. “Trailblazer is a continuation of the design language for Chevy’s crossover family and extends our momentum into one of the industry’s fastest-growing segments.”

The Chevrolet Trailblazer will include an RS trim with standard two-tone roof that allows drivers to purchase a vehicle that reflects their lifestyle.

The Trailblazer’s unique individuality is paired with standard active safety features* including Front Pedestrian Braking, Automatic Emergency Braking, and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning. It also offers optional Adaptive Cruise Control - Camera, Rear Park Assist and a High Definition Rear Vision Camera that provides additional assistance to customers while parking.

“These features deliver added confidence and peace of mind behind the wheel, helping drivers monitor the vehicle’s surroundings and the driving environment with an available combination of camera, short-range radars, and ultrasonic sensors,” said Majoros.

Product specifications and pricing will be shared later. The new Trailblazer is expected to start arriving at dealers in early 2020.

*Safety or driver assistance features are no substitute for the driver's responsibility to operate the vehicle in a safe manner. The driver should remain attentive to traffic, surroundings and road conditions at all times. Visibility, weather, and road conditions may affect feature performance. Read the vehicle's owner's manual for more important feature limitations and information.

Work Truck Wednesday: Dovetail Landscaper? What The Heck Is That?


Craig McKenzie of Paradise Fleet and Commercial answers what a Dovetail Landscaper is and how valuable it can be for those huge jobs where there are multiple machines and crew needed at the same time which saves time and money. This particular unit was manufactured by Martin's Truck Body and is mounted on a Crew Cab Low Cab Forward chassis which allows for excellent maneuverability around the city because of the short wheelbase and yet allowing longer truck bodies giving the best of both. This truck could easily replace multiple trucks saving even more.

Welder and Crane Bodies Explained





Crane Bodies is any type of body that also has a crane attached to it. Most commonly, these are service bodies, but they can also be flatbeds. Sometimes they are called Mechanics Trucks, and sometimes they are also called Welder Bodies.

A Welder Body is much more difficult to pin down since welders are creative people and like to create their own unique truck bodies that serve their needs. Many of these designs have been copied by body companies and called welder bodies. Typically a welder body is a service body with one or two raised compartments to house their gas bottles. Sometimes they have a cutaway compartment area to house an electric welding machine. Sometimes the welder will also have a crane to make easier repairs out in the field, so the crane body and the welder body are put together here.

We will show some examples of these bodies below, but keep in mind that we can customize them to suit most needs. When it comes to crane bodies, capacity is everything, so they have a wide range of capacities. The 3,000-3,500 lb. crane is probably the most popular size and that will typically go on a 3500HD.

The other thing to keep in mind about cranes is that they are most like your own arm relative to your body. So the first two questions are:

How much is the maximum weight you will want to lift?

1. How far away from the body did you need to go? So, just like your arm, you can pick up heavy things close to you, but if your arm is extended, you can only pick up a fraction of that amount.

2, The crane is exactly the same way. So, for example, with a 3,000 lb. crane, it will pick up 3,000 lbs. right next to the body, but at the maximum extension of the boom, it can only pick up about 500 lbs. Just think of your arm and it will make the most sense.

Work Truck Wednesday, 3-27-19: The You-Name-It Body Is Right For Most Businesses!







For this Work Truck Wednesday, we are showing off a great work truck which is also a great selling truck. This type of truck and body combination is often called a Plumber Body, but it could just as well be an Electrician Body, a Handyman Body, a Remodeler Body, an HVAC Body, or a You-Name-It Body because it is so flexible and useful in this configuration.

Why? It has a short 139" wheelbase which is about the same as an 8' pickup truck and yet this has a 10 3/4' body. It is an enclosed service body in that it has a roof and fully lockable and huge storage area. This great body by Knapheide is mounted on a cutaway van chassis and because of this design has a much shorter turning radius than a typical pickup. Carry things inside out of sight, along with tools and parts in the outside lockable compartments too. Just imagine all you can put in this great work truck.

This is our stock number M19286 and is ready to go to work today. See more about this great truck here.

Better yet, give us a call at 951-252-2980 and let us help you find the perfect rig for your business!
