If you are behind the wheel of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, you know it is a truck you can depend on to power your day, whether at work or on a getaway. You also know that keeping your Silverado running at its best requires regular maintenance and occasional repairs.
Nevertheless, according to the editors at U.S. News & World Report, maintaining your trusted Silverado is an easier feat than with other trucks on the market. That’s why the formidable and durable truck was just included on the list of 10 Easy Cars to Maintain and Repair.
The Silverado has had fewer redesigns than other vehicles
over the years. As such, you can have easy access to plenty of parts when your
truck is due for a replacement. Service technicians, especially those at Chevrolet
dealerships, also have lots of experience servicing Silverado models since
they’re so popular.
Maintenance checks and repairs are convenient to do, thanks
to the roomy engine compartments in the Chevrolet Silverado. Older Silverado
models also boast straightforward and easy to understand components, making
maintenance a breeze.
Of course, whether your Chevrolet vehicle has simple or
complex maintenance needs, you can always count on the trained experts at Vann
Gannaway Chevrolet in Eustis, Florida, to service your vehicle.
Chevrolet released a new advertisement that showcases the impressive Durabed in the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. The “Real People, Not Actors” ad highlights the integrity and functionality of this new pickup bed by having real people comment on the truck.
The ad begins in a warehouse at night, with the only light
shining down on the 2019 Silverado 1500. A host leads a group of participants
to the Durabed, where people describe the bed as “sturdy” and “huge.” The
Durabed is lit up by the available LED bed lighting, showcasing the lighting’s
power, with a participant even remarking that it “lights up the entire bed.”
Another feature emphasized in the spot is the 120-volt
outlet that’s built into the Durabed. Once a chord plugs into the outlet, other
lights come on in the warehouse, revealing the eight trims of the Silverado
1500. It’s a unique way of both showing the effectiveness of the outlet and the
huge amount of trims.
We at Vann Gannaway Chevrolet are proud to offer the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 on our lot. Stop by for a test drive to check out the Durabed and other great features.
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.
While some people don’t mind blending in with the crowd, many of us like to express our own personalities and find ways to stand out. At the end of this month at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Chevrolet will showcase unique ways to customize the all-new 2019 Silverado.
It will display four custom trucks that feature numerous accessories and parts for the 2019 Silverado. These trucks will show customers how easy it can be to create a truck that suits their needs and lifestyle.
Hugh Milne, Silverado marketing manager, said, “With a full catalog of accessories and performance parts, we offer exponentially more ways for customers to build their ideal truck. And, unlike certain aftermarket components, these are designed, engineered and validated to the same engineering standards as the Silverado itself, and backed by Chevrolet.”
The updated accessories and performance parts include items like illuminated bowtie emblems, step kits, tonneau covers, brake systems, and cargo bed storage boxes. The GM-designed parts are built to fit and work precisely with the redesigned Silverado. In addition, if installed at a Chevrolet dealership, they are covered by a warranty.
You can take a look at these new accessories and part online at Chevrolet.com/accessories. Contact us at Vann Gannaway Chevrolet for more information about delivery and installation.
Truck manufacturers face the incredible challenge of making trucks more capable while reducing their fuel consumption. General Motors may have done just that with an all-new engine that will come standard in some Chevrolet Silverado models. The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will see a new turbocharged four-cylinder engine that uses every sip of fuel wisely.
The 2.7-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine will replace the V6 engine in some 2019 Silverado 1500 models. The new engine will benefit from active cylinder management technology. Thanks to the fuel-saving technology, the Silverado 1500 will cut two of the four cylinders when full power isn’t necessary.
Drivers worried the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 won’t live up to the competition should put their fears aside. The turbocharged engine will produce more torque than the base V6 engines. Total performance output comes to 310 hp and 348 lb-ft of torque.
Chevrolet has yet to release any official fuel economy figures, but the turbocharged four-cylinder engine with active cylinder management is sure to increase the full-size truck’s efficiency. The automaker also assured truck enthusiasts that the Silverado’s turbocharged engine will offer comparable capability to competitors with V6 engines.
The 2.7-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine won’t be the only fuel-efficient powertrain available in the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. A new turbo diesel six-cylinder engine is expected to join the range in the near future.

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado has been the talk of the automotive industry since it made its official debut weeks ago. Thanks to some dedicated researchers, we now know what to expect under the hood of the new model. According to information obtained from order guides by GM Authority, the Chevrolet Silverado will feature two V8 engine options for the 2019 model year.
The 5.3-liter V8 engine is the smaller of the two engines and carries over from the outgoing 2018 Silverado. Its performance output remains the same as in the 2018 model, up to 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. It comes paired with a smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission.
The larger 6.2-liter V8 engine sees a slight change in performance from the 2018 model. The refreshed powertrain will produce 425 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque. That engine comes mated to an advanced 10-speed automatic transmission.
Drivers that want a different engine are in luck as Chevrolet has confirmed that the upcoming 2019 Silverado will be available with six engine and transmission combinations. One of the new engines is a 3.0-liter Duramax® diesel six-cylinder engine. A new base engine is likely on the docket as well.
The experts at GM Authority believe that another V8 engine will slot between the 5.3- and 6.2-liter engines. An electrified or hybrid powertrain certainly isn’t out of the question either.
We can’t wait for the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado to finally get here. Contact the ream at Vann Gannaway Chevy to learn more about this vehicle (and when to expect it in the dealership).
