The new Silverado stands out from the competition. The latest reason is that it just earned an award from WardsAuto. The new 6.2-liter V8 engine was ranked on the Wards 10 Best Engines List, offering Dynamic Fuel Management to save you money at the gas pump without sacrificing power. The massive engine is the largest and most powerful gasoline V8 in the segment.

WardsAuto evaluates every all-new or improved engine available in the US, gauging factors like power, torque, fuel economy, noise, and innovative technologies. Judges were particularly impressed by the Dynamic Fuel Management system, which works to alternative between eight- and four-cylinder modes to save on gas when possible. According to Chevy, the new 6.2-liter V8 engine generates 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, and it’s paired with an innovative Hydra-Matic 10-speed automatic transmission.

“Chevrolet first introduced its Active Fuel Management cylinder deactivation system in 2005, and Dynamic Fuel Management is a natural progression of the technology,” said Jordan Lee, Small Block chief engineer. “Dynamic Fuel Management enables only the cylinders needed to deliver the power you want, seamlessly delivering the best balance of power and fuel economy.”

In addition to the innovative engine, the new Silverado comes with a lighter design, cutting 450 pounds compared to previous model years thanks to a new mixed-material design. Offered in regular, double, and crew cab body styles with available 4WD, the Silverado is perfect for everyone. To learn more about it or go for a test drive, contact us at Vann Gannaway Chevrolet.

Valentine’s Day On A Budget

Valentine's Day

Want to show your loved one you care without breaking the bank? Here are some ideas on how to have a meaningful Valentine’s Day on a budget.

  • Dress up to eat in: Rather than spending tons of money eating out, spend the time to make a thoughtful, home-cooked meal. To make it extra special, dress up in your finest clothes, light some candles, and swear off phones and technology for the evening.
  • Make a homemade card or gift: Making something for the person you love says so much more than simply buying them something you think they’d like. Spend the time to write a thoughtful card or make a thoughtful gift.
  • Make a playlist together for just the two of you: This activity makes for hours of fun and reminiscing with your loved one as you decide on your favorite songs as a couple and ones that express how you feel about one another. What’s more, this is the gift that keeps giving – you can enjoy the playlist year-round.
  • Pick out a few favorite memories to recreate: Maybe you both remember watching a certain movie on one of your first dates together, or you both love a particular hiking trail. Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to re-watch one of your favorite movies or spend some time together outdoors.
