Show Your Truck Love

 

February is the month of love and Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. We talked about how Onstar can make your Valentine’s Day planning a snap, so now we are going to talk about some things that we love here at Lake Country Chevrolet Cadillac. Since we are green country’s Silverado Central and home to over 200 Chevy Silverados (or more) at any given moment, we love trucks.

 

February is truck month at Lake Country Chevrolet and is the perfect month to showcase why so many people love their Chevy trucks. Here are just a few reasons you may love your Chevy truck or may want to consider purchasing a Chevy truck in the near future.

 

Chevy Silverado has something for everyone!

There is no way I could outline everything that is offered in the Silverado lineup because it is plentiful! So consider this a general overview of the Silverado 1500 lineup, with everything there is to offer via trim packages.

The roster ascends through base Work and LS, volume LT, and top-end LTZ.  So what are the differences in trim packages?

The Work is just that: a work truck. It’s pretty bare bones, but it does come standard with air conditioning, cruise control, and a tilt steering wheel.

The LS gets cloth seats instead of the standard vinyl in work trucks, power windows/locks/mirrors, satellite radio, and GM’s OnStar Assistance.

LT options generally have the same equipment, but you can get more luxury and convenience options than on the LS. Think comfort, look, and feel of more luxury.

LTZ has leather upholstery, heated front seats, driver-seat memory, dual-zone automatic climate control, power-folding outside mirrors, remote engine start, and Bluetooth wireless cell-phone link.

Some of the many, many options you can buy, depending on trim level, include more-powerful engines, a power sunroof, rear-obstacle detection, power-adjustable pedals, navigation system, rear view camera, cooled front seats, rear DVD entertainment, and wheels up to 22 inches in diameter.

 

The Silverado is a heavy hauler.

Most Work models come with a 195-horsepower 4.3-liter V6 engine. Standard on the LS and some LTs is a 302-horsepower 4.8-liter V8. These engines pair with a 4-speed automatic transmission.

Standard on the LTZ and some LS Silverados and optional on others is a 315-horsepower 5.3-liter V8. The LT and LTZ can be ordered with the 403-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 borrowed from the premium Cadillac Escalade. These two engines use a 6-speed automatic transmission.

All the V8 engines can use gasoline and/or E85 ethanol-blended fuel. The 5.3-liter engine include GM’s Active Fuel Management cylinder deactivation.

Maximum towing capacity is 10,700 pounds on the 1500.

 

Need even more towing capacity? No problem!

The Silverado 2500 and 3500 can increase your tow and load capacity significantly.

The 2500 can tow 17,800 pounds and the 3500 can tow up to 23,100 pounds. That is some major towing power!!

 

Fantastic Fuel Economy for Large Trucks

EPA estimated fuel economy for rear-wheel-drive Silverados ranges from 13 mpg city to 22 mpg highway. 4WD models score between 12 and 21 mpg. These estimates are for gasoline. With E85, those scores drop to between 9 and 16 mpg. For this truck class that is fantastic fuel economy.

 

What is your favorite feature of the Silverado? Do you have Chevy truck love?

The Chevy Tahoe Hybrid is More than You Think

The Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid gives drivers more for their money when it comes to fuel efficiency.  It gets 33 percent more mileage per tank of gas over non-hybrid models while still offering the roominess and capability customers look for in a full-size SUV.  With seating for up to eight people and a towing capacity of up to 6,200 pounds on 2WD models, the Tahoe Hybrid is a strong bet.

 

The Tahoe Hybrid features GM’s advanced Electrically Variable Transmission (EVT) and 300-volt nickel-metal hydride Energy Storage System (ESS).  They work together with the standard 6.0L V-8 gasoline engine with Active Fuel Management (AFM) and late intake valve closing (LIVC) technology to enable the Tahoe Hybrid’s efficient performance.  This system allows the Tahoe to launch and drive up to 30 mph on electricity alone while also allowing the gas engine to operate in its economical V-4 mode for longer periods.

 

The EVT is designed to give the Tahoe the best combination of city and highway fuel economy.  It is an all-purpose system that is well-suited to providing excellent economy and full-size SUV passenger-carrying, cargo-hauling, and trailer-towing capabilities.

 

One of the main reasons for the Tahoe Hybrid’s fuel efficiency is the gasoline engine’s Auto Stop mode.  When the Tahoe is cruising between 0 and 30 mph, the gas engine may be automatically shut down.  Leaving the engine off and allowing the vehicle to operate under only electric power up to 30 mph greatly reduces fuel consumption.

 

The regenerative braking system works together with the hydraulic braking system.  It uses a brake pedal emulator that provides progressive resistance as the pedal is depressed.  This gives the brake pedal a feel that is much like that of a standard hydraulic braking system.

 

Inside the Tahoe Hybrid is a gauge cluster that includes a special tachometer that incorporates an Auto Stop position just above the 0 rpm mark that shows drivers when the gasoline engine is in shut down mode.  An analog economy gauge helps the driver maintain the most efficient style of driving.

 

In the middle of the center stack, the standard navigation system’s 6.5-inch full-color VGA display doubles as a monitor that shows a graphic representation of the hybrid drivetrain’s power flow.  It informs the occupants how the system is sending power to the wheels from the ESS/electric motors, the gasoline engine, or both.  The screen also shows reverse electrical flow during regenerative braking.

 

Shoppers who are looking for a hybrid, full-size SUV will find that the Tahoe Hybrid offers all of the features of a traditional SUV with all of the savings of a hybrid.  Check one out at Lake Country  and see why the Tahoe Hybrid is the best in its class.

The Chevy Spark Can Provide Huge Savings

The 2013 Chevrolet Spark mini car is saving owners time and money when it comes to regularly scheduled maintenance.  With minimal required scheduled maintenance, young, reluctant car buyers can rest assured that the Spark is a solid investment that will require little more expense than the monthly payment.

 

Designed for next-generation urbanites, engineers took into account that people in this demographic are more likely than previous generations to delay major life events, like buying their first new car, because of uncertainty over the overall cost of vehicle ownership.  According to research by Chevrolet and MTV Scratch, more than one in four of next-generation customers said owning a vehicle that is easier and less expensive to maintain is very important.

 

With its $12,995 starting price, the Spark is more than $3,100 less than its nearest competitor.  It is saving owners money right off the bat.  The savings don’t end there, though.  For example, Chevrolet engineers designed the Spark’s engine timing chain to require no scheduled maintenance (unlike timing belts) and electronic power steering and transmission fluid are intended to last the life of the vehicle.  Spark owners can also go up to 100,000 miles before replacing spark plugs.

 

Oil changes are required less frequently than in many other cars as well.  With Chevrolet’s advanced oil life system, oil and filter changes for the Spark are recommended around 7,500 miles or when the Oil Life Monitor system alerts the driver for an oil change.  At a participating Chevrolet Certified Service provider, like Lake Country Chevrolet Cadillac, an oil change with the gas saver bundle will cost just $29.95.  Over the average 150,000 mile life of the vehicle, Spark owners will save approximately $900, compared with vehicles that recommend oil changes every 3,000 miles.

 

The Spark is the only mini car on the market that is covered by a five-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty, a three-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty, and a six-year/100,000-mile rust-through limited warranty.

 

When the Spark does need service, it will tell you what it needs through OnStar, which is standard for six months.  Spark owners can receive monthly vehicle diagnostics emails, including the state of fluid levels and tire pressure.

 

Launched in Korea in 2009, the Spark is now available in almost every country in the world and has sold more than 600,000 vehicles worldwide.  With its American debut, it is also winning over drivers in the United States.  The Spark is the only car in the segment to offer five doors and an available seven-inch touch screen Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system.

 

If you are on the hedge about buying a new car, come to Lake Country and see why the Spark is winning over the world’s drivers with its sleek exterior and its low cost of ownership.

Chevy Runs Deep: Truck History

Over the last 95 years, Chevrolet trucks have built a legacy. It started with the idea to take a few car chassis and fit them with hand-built beds to help carry materials around a booming car factory. Soon after, millions of Chevrolet trucks were on the road tackling the toughest jobs on farms, hauling tools and lumber, and carrying families and friends into the wilds. Chevrolet has a rich truck history. Here are a few of the Chevy truck highlights from the last 95 years.

 

1918 Chevy Four-Ninety Half-Ton Light Delivery “Cowl Chassis”

The first customer chassis was built in Flint, Michigan, on November 22, 1916, and was shipped from the factory on December 2 that year. Two four-cylinder models were Chevrolet’s official entry into the truck market for the 1918 model year. They were cowl chassis units that came from the factory with only frontal sheet metal. Usually, buyers would obtain a wooden cab and cargo box or panel van body to suit their purposes. It was priced at $595 and was essentially a bodyless Chevrolet Four Ninety car with stronger rear springs. When a pickup box or panel body was added, it was an agile and economical light-delivery truck for the post WWI businesses.

 

1930 Chevrolet Pickup

In the 1930s factory-built pickups replaced the simple cowl chassis models. They came with roadster and closed bodies. Chevy bought the Martin-Parry body company in 1930 and soon started selling steel-body half-ton pickups complete with a factory-installed bed.

 

These new pickups featured a new Chevy inline six-cylinder engine, which was first produced in later 1928. The inline six-cylinder engines were used in Chevy cars and trucks for years following.

 

1947 Chevrolet Advance-Design Half-Ton Pickup

Chevy introduced its Advance-Design trucks in early 1947. They were the first completely redesigned GM vehicles to appear following WWII. Truck owners were asking for more room, more comfort, improved visibility, and a wider pickup box. Chevy responded with the Advance-Design trucks, which gave them all of that and more.

 

1959 Chevrolet El Camino

The original El Camino was introduced in 1959 and featured the finned style that was popular in that time coupled with half-ton pickup utility. After 1960, though, the El Camino went on a three-year hiatus. It was revived in 1964 with a new version based on the mid-size Chevrolet Chevelle. El Camino buyers could order their truck with a high-performance big-block V-8 powertrain and by 1968, a complete Super Sport package was available.

 

1982 Chevrolet S-10

The Chevy S-10 was the first domestically produced compact pickup. With an 82-horsepower four-cylinder engine and available 110-horsepower V6, the S-10 could haul 1,500 pounds and tow 4,000. It also featured a roomy cab with high levels of standard and optional equipment making it the mainstay of the Chevy lineup.

 

1999 Chevrolet Silverado

Chevy’s all-new 1999 full-size pickups were the first to be called Silverados. The trucks resulted from the most intense development program ever undertaken by GM. The interior of the Silverado had comfort and convenience features personal-use customers expected. The new generation of V8 engines gave the Silverado plenty of power. In 2004, Silverado became available in a crew cab model to accommodate families and in 2007 it got significant improvements in performance and fuel economy.

 

Chevrolet’s rich truck history continues with the midsized 2013 Colorado. If you are in the market for a truck, see why Chevrolet trucks are the most dependable, long-lasting trucks with lowest cost of ownership at Lake Country Chevrolet Cadillac in Muskogee, OK!
