The Most Capable & Most Advanced Silverado is Coming February 2019!

 

2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD

Bold and sculpted from the inside-out, the 2020 Silverado Heavy Duty will debut in February 2019 as the most capable and most advanced Silverado HD in Chevrolet history!

Built in Flint, Michigan, the Silverado HD shares only a similar roof style with the light-duty Silverado 1500 model – every other piece of sheet metal is exclusive to the 2020 model. Chevrolet also included 3 inches of additional legroom and a taller, more comfortable seating position on the crew cab model.

Under the Hood

2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD

Owners of the 2020 Silverado HD can choose between two new powertrains: an all-new gasoline engine with direct injection, 6-speed transmission OR the Duramex Turbo-Diesel V-8 which delivers 910 lb-ft of torque through an all-new, Allison 10-speed transmission.

Meeting Your Needs

General Motors understands that no two truck owners are the same, which has helped them build the most successful truck franchise in the industry! Knowing and fully understanding the needs of their truck owners, Chevrolet has equipped the 2020 Silverado HD with an all-new customer-focused trailering technology and a suite of features designed specifically for this heavy-duty model.

“We know the needs and priorities of heavy-duty customers are different than those of either light-duty or medium-duty customers . . . we built a heavy-duty truck tailor-made for them that has more differentiation than ever before from light-duty models, offers advanced towing technologies to improve towing confidence and includes new features such as the integrated Bedstep, which makes it easier to access the bed while pulling a fifth-wheel trailer.” – Jaclyn McQuaid, chief engineer, Silverado HD.

Prepare for Winter: Chevrolet Maintenance Tips

unnamed

We have cooler, sunny days in the forecast for the week ahead, but it’s never too early to prepare for the arrival of winter weather. Not only should we be altering our driving habits to accommodate for the change in road conditions, but we should also arrange with a local mechanic to complete maintenance that will ensure the top performance of our Chevrolet vehicle(s) all season long.

Keep your Chevrolet clean

Snow, salt and ice can build up quickly when you’re on the road, leading to poor visibility and possible corrosion on your Chevrolet. Rid your vehicle of hazardous debris with frequent visits to your local car wash or our J.B.A. service department; your Chevrolet will thank you.

Monitor all vehicle fluids & check your oil!

As colder temperatures arrive, the oil in your Chevrolet can begin to thicken making it harder for your vehicle to start and perform to the best of its ability. With the winter season approaching, it’s a good time to start monitoring the levels of all fluids in your vehicle. If you’re unsure about your Chevrolet fluid levels, our technicians are here to help! You can schedule your service appointment online or contact us directly: 410-766-6300.

How’s your battery?

The battery of your Chevrolet will take a serious beating with the arrival of colder temperatures. In fact, the change in temperature can decrease the charge of your vehicle battery even if it’s new. To avoid getting stuck on the side of the road in bad weather, ensure that a mechanic takes a close look at the condition of your Chevrolet battery.

Keep the tank full

This tip might seem obvious, but it’s worth mentioning. Fill up your gas tank when you have a chance. Not only will this decrease the likelihood of you running out of gas in poor winter weather, but it will also decrease the chances of your gas line freezing.

Do you have your winter tires?

When outside temperatures dip below 44°F, it’s important that you change over to your winter tires. The rubber on all-season tires can harden in cold temperatures which will cause your vehicle to lose traction on snow and ice covered roads. Winter tires, however, remain flexible which allows the rubber to grip the road.

Need help choosing the right winter tires for your vehicle? We’re here to help! Visit our website or contact our service department: 410-766-6300.

Hands on the Wheel: Chevrolet’s “Call Me Out” App takes aim at Distracted Driving

Chevrolet launches a new smartphone app, Call Me Out, to help re

Did you know that in 2016, 37,000 deaths on the road were attributed to distracted driving? According to a recent Research Now survey, 84% of people say that driving while handling a phone is dangerous, 90% of people admit to doing it. With 95% of Americans owning cell phones, Chevrolet is taking direct aim at distracted driving with the launch of their “Call Me Out” app.

“Call Me Out” combines to extremely influential forces – technology and the people we love. Available to drivers over the age of 18, “Call Me Out” is designed to leverage positive influence of peer pressure on behavior – such as distracted driving. Chevrolet encourages users to have friends, family and mentors record a positive message to remind one another to keep their hands on the wheel . . . and off their phones.

 

automobile-automotive-blur-280310

“As the father of two daughters, I am keenly aware of all the perils that my children face out in the world on a daily basis, and that is why it is so important for GM and Chevrolet to offer technologies that help all of us become safer drivers . . ..” – Alan Batey, president of GM North America and head of Global Chevrolet

How does “Call Me Out” work?

Once the app is downloaded, it uses the phone’s accelerometer and GPS to detect when the phone is physically picked up while travelling at speeds above 5 mph. Once detected, the app will automatically play personalized messages from friends, family or mentors reminding the driver to keep their eyes on the road.

“Call Me Out” includes gamification, featuring a scoreboard and rankings. The less the phone is handled while driving, the higher the score on the leaderboard. Talk about a little friendly (and safe) competition!

“Chevy’s Call Me Out app gives drivers another great tool to reinforce good driving behaviors — and as a mom of a teenage daughter, I personally know how important it is to model good driving behaviors and encourage others to do the same.” – Tricia Morrow, Chevy safety engineer

All-new 2019 Chevrolet Blazer vs. the 2019 Ford Edge

 

ChevyBlazerReveal07

Arriving in Chevrolet dealerships across the U.S. in early 2019, the all-new Blazer is a versatile and stylish addition to the Chevrolet utility vehicle lineup. Sculpted on the inside and out, the 2019 Blazer comes equipped with a 3.6L engine (RS & Premier models) and available All-Wheel Drive making it the perfect sporty SUV for all of your adventures.

MotorTrend recently shared an article (“Refreshing or Revolting: 2019 Chevrolet Blazer vs. Ford Edge“) which inspired us to compare the all-new Chevrolet Blazer to its SUV segment competitor: the 2019 Ford Edge.

APPEARANCE

When it comes to first impressions, the Chevrolet Blazer is both striking and sleek. Exterior design was the main focus for the Blazer and it sets new standards for how SUVs should look. Buyers of the 2019 Blazer can choose between 20-inch and 21-inch wheels, as well as a variety of chrome accents on the Premier model.

MotorTrend notes that Chevrolet “took a bolder approach” when designing the Blazer with the grille extending “. . . nearly the entire length of the car’s front fascia . . ..” While still a good looking SUV on the outside, the 2019 Ford Edge has a more conventional look that buyers have become accustomed to in this particular segment.

INTERIOR FEATURES

Buyers of the all-new Chevrolet Blazer can look forward to a suite of the latest and greatest in on-the-road technology features. Equipped with a Chevrolet-first Cargo Management System that lets buyers customize their cargo space, the Blazer has a spacious and intuitive interior that offers a fantastic combination of style, versatility and comfort.

The 2019 Edge comes equipped with a more “structured” interior and center console with an embedded touchscreen. One cool feature that the Ford Edge does have in comparison to the Blazer is a Rotary e-Shifter vs. a conventional gear shifter which opens up space for cupholders, smart storage and USB ports.
