Chevrolet always has surprises up its sleeves, and the 2019 model year is no exception. The all-new 2019 Chevy Blazer is a versatile SUV unlike any that you’ve seen before. Check out what you’ll have to look forward to with the Blazer.

The Blazer’s Cargo Management System excels at making sure all of your storage needs are met. Under the hood of the RS and Premier, you’ll find a standard V6 engine. If you drive on rough terrain, the Blazer offers available all-wheel drive on select models.

Here at Wilson GM, we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the 2019 Chevrolet Blazer.

GMC Multipro Tailgate Debuts on 2019 Sierra

GMC multipro tailgate
Snow In The Sierra

For decades, pickup tailgates have been relatively unchanged. However, the 2019 GMC Sierra is revolutionizing the back end of the pickup with its GMC Multipro Tailgate. It has six versatile features that make it easier to use. Learn more about the incredible new features of the 2019 GMC Sierra here at Wilson GM in Stillwater, OK.

Primary Gate

The primary gate works just like any other truck tailgate. It has an available power release that can be operated using the key fob.

Easy Access

With the primary tailgate open on any other truck, it can be difficult to reach inside the bed. The 2019 Sierra has an inner gate that folds down to make it easier to load and unload the box.

Full-Width Step

Fold the inner gate down even more and it opens up into a large step that you can use to climb up into the box (375-pound weight limit).

Inner Gate Load Stop

If you have any second-tier items in the bed, use the inner gate load stop to prevent them from sliding out.

Primary Gate Load Stop

When the primary gate is open, you can flip up the load stop. This helps prevent items from sliding out the box when you need to keep the tailgate open.

Inner Gate with Work Surface

The inner gate can fold down to reveal a flat work surface.

What’s New With The 2019 Silverado Design

The Chevy Silverado is the best-selling vehicle for GM in general, which means Chevrolet’s engineers invest extra time and effort into ensuring the newest edition will impress drivers. There are a few things you can expect to find on the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado, including bolder styling, a lighter design, more cargo space, and a few powertrain options to save you money at the pump.  According to the NY Daily News, the 2019 Silverado design will get an added 3.9 inches on the wheelbase, as well as an additional 1.6 inches on the overall length. This transformation helps provide more space on the interior, including an added 3 inches of legroom on the Crew Cab. You’ll also find storage trays under the seats to improve cargo room.

Aluminum Frame & Duramax Engine

Other major changes include a 450-pound weight reduction thanks to added aluminum; however, the bed is still made from rolled steel, so you don’t have to worry about durability. Under the hood is an all-new Duramax® Turbo-Diesel engine, and a dynamic fuel management system lets you save fuel by deactivating cylinders when you’re idling. For those looking for a little extra kick when it comes to performance, check out the Silverado RST, an entirely new trim for 2019. This comes with 22-inch wheels, a monochromatic exterior, and highly advanced performance technologies.

Here at Wilson GM in Stillwater, OK, we are eagerly counting down the days until the latest Chevy Silverado model arrives on our dealership lot.

Truckin’ Along!

Top Selling Trucks

The top two best-selling vehicles in the U.S. are the Ford F-150 and the Chevrolet Silverado. Both of these pickups are reliable, tough, and powerful vehicles designed to provide a smooth, comfortable driving experience without sacrificing capability or performance. However, you might be wondering which option to buy. By comparing Chevrolet Silverado features and options to those of the Ford F-150, you can make the best choice to fit your needs.

 

Comparing The Chevrolet Silverado

Both the Chevy Silverado and the Ford F-150 come in around the same price point. However, when it comes to add-ons and available features, the Ford F-150 only offers its more luxurious features at high-end prices, whereas the Silverado gives buyers plenty of great value at lower trims.

 

Engine Options

The Ford F-150 has a lot of innovative technology features that help it tow a little more confidently and safely than past iterations of the pickup. Still, when it comes down to it, engine options on the Chevrolet Silverado – along with its high-strength steel build – provide it with more practical features and a top-notch towing capacity.

 

Capability

Overall, if you are looking for a vehicle that does its job well, comparing the Chevrolet Silverado to the Ford F-150 will show you that the Chevy Silverado comes with entry-level capability, value, and practicality, in addition to all the fun bells and whistles. You can have it all in the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado, which is available here at Wilson GM in Stillwater, OK.

Wilson GM Proudly Support the Troops

Helping  You Get A New Vehicle

Chevrolet is a true American automaker and proudly stands with the U.S. troops, providing them with the vehicles they desire at a price that recognizes their service. Chevrolet and its dealerships across the country wish to recognize the troops, and that’s why there is the Chevy Military Program and Discount. This discount extends to Active Duty members, Reservists, National Guard members, Veterans (within one year of discharge), and Retirees of the U.S. armed forces, including the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard.

Receive Your Discount

To receive the discount, simply go to gmmilitarydiscount.com and register. You will then get a discount authorization code, which you can take to your local dealership to purchase your new vehicle. You can apply the discount to whatever vehicle you choose, such as a Special Ops Edition of the Silverado 1500, which features a naval-inspired design, or the Colorado ZH2, which was developed collaboratively with the U.S. Army.

We Support the Troops

At Wilson GM, we provide an additional benefit to service members: in the event that you are called to active duty, we will happily take back any leased vehicles. This falls in accordance with the Service Members Civil Relief Act (SCRA), which was established in 2003 and grants legal protections to members of the United States Military and allows military members to terminate automobile leases in certain circumstances. Wilson will happily help you carry out this process as you prepare to leave for active duty.

Wreaths Across America

Chevy’s support of service members extends beyond vehicle discounts. The automaker also actively supports service members and their families by partnering with Wreaths Across America, as well as proudly taking part in the Hiring Our Heroes Program. Wreaths Across America works tirelessly to make sure that fallen heroes are memorialized and those still serving are supported. One of their main initiatives is laying a quarter of a million wreaths per year at cemeteries across the country, and Chevy is proudly donating 4,000 wreaths and 12 vehicles for a Veterans Parade from Maine to Arlington.

Hiring Our Heroes

Wilson GM in Stillwater, OK & GM as a whole is also a corporate partner of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Hiring Our Heroes Program, which helps veterans find employment after returning from service. Both Chevrolet and the entire staff here at Wilson GM are proud to offer these exceptional services and support to military men and women, giving back to those who serve us day in and day out.

Spring Cleaning Hacks for Your Silverado

cleaning hacks for your Silverado
Spring Into Your Silverado

After a long winter, your Chevrolet Silverado is probably looking a bit dingy. Now that spring is here, it is time to spruce it up, so here are a few cleaning hacks for your Silverado that will help it look as good as new.

Compressed Air

Clean the dust from all of those hard to reach places, like inside your vents, with a can of compressed air.

Toothbrush

Dirt likes to gather in all the tiny textured surfaces in your truck. Use a toothbrush to help you gently scrub away the lingering grime.

Toothpaste

Over time, headlights can get cloudy. Grab a tube of whitening toothpaste and rub the paste all over your headlights. Let it sit for a few minutes, rinse it off, and take in your good-as-new lights.

Cooking Spray

Your grille can become caked with dead bugs. Instead of trying to scrub them away, spray them with a can of cooking spray. Then, wait a few seconds and wipe it all away with a microfiber cloth.

Bleach Powder

Are your rims suffering from a bit of road rash? Get a microfiber cloth, sprinkle some bleach powder onto it, and then splash it with Lysol. Scrub away at the grimy spots on your rims to reveal its original shine.

If your truck is too far gone, or if you would like to have one all your own to practice these cleaning tips on, come get a new Chevrolet Silverado at Wilson GM in Stillwater, OK.

2018 Buick Regal TourX Wagon Bridges a Gap

2018 Buick Regal TourX
A Sport Vehicle With More Room

Luxury Wagon

Buick has been revamping its entire lineup over the past few years, and what better model to set the luxury brand apart than a wagon? The 2018 Buick Regal TourX could very well be what the automotive industry needs. With all the hype around SUVs and crossover, the Buick Regal TourX wagon offers a true alternative to larger SUVs.

More Cargo Space

Wagons haven’t seen much love in the United States in recent years, but the Buick Regal TourX looks to change their reputation. The European-style wagon features plenty of interior space, on par with that of an SUV, and a roofline that allows drivers to load larger cargo, like bicycles, with ease.

Turbocharged Engine

All Buick Regal TourX models feature a turbocharged engine and 18-inch wheels, both of which are often reserved for crossovers and SUVs. Additionally, a higher ride height and all-wheel drive sets the wagon apart from sedans. Twin tail pipes are integrated into the rear bumper for extra sportiness, an aesthetic we here at Wilson GM enjoy very much.

Sport vehicle

In terms of style, the Buick Regal TourX is a sporty car with plenty of luxury to offer the right driver. Like all Buick models, premium materials and an ergonomic design, complete with a seven-inch touchscreen, set the Buick Regal TourX apart from competitors. On the outside, its rugged look and athletic styling are comparable to crossover competitors.

2019 Chevrolet Silverado Adds Accessibility

2019 Chevrolet Silverado
New Design To Help You

Boosted Full-Size Truck

Drivers who have trouble accessing a full-size truck are getting a boost come next year. The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado will see a few additional convenience features that assist drivers climbing into the truck, such as the driver-side step-assist handle.

Step-Assist

Climbing into taller vehicles, like the Chevrolet Silverado, can be difficult for shorter drivers or those with disabilities. Raising the truck for more ground clearance (which often happens when trucks are put to work) only makes the problem worse. Fortunately, the step-assist handle will offer a quick-and-easy remedy to the problem.

Greater Access To The Cabin

The driver-side step-assist handle is located on the inside of the front doors, and this small feature is designed to help drivers gain greater access to their truck and make hitting the road more convenient. Prior to the addition of the handle, drivers would have to grab onto the seat, inside of the door, or steering wheel in order to raise themselves into the vehicle. The handle was an available accessory, but it looks like Chevrolet is going the extra mile to make drivers the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado more convenient.

Created For You

Chevrolet conducted more than 7,000 customer interviews in order to create the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado. In addition to the step-assist handle, the upcoming model features more powertrain choices, technologies, models, and a tougher bed floor.

We here at Wilson GM in Stillwater, OK are happy to see Chevrolet making it easier for drivers to access the bold Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck!

Alternative Christmas Trees

Alternative Christmas Trees
The Perfect Christmas Tree

Sometimes straying from tradition is a good thing. At Wilson GM in Stillwater, OK, we’ve found that these alternative Christmas trees sound like just the right Holiday projects for our crafty friends, and it may save you some money compared to purchasing and cutting down a traditional Christmas tree this year.

Wooden Frame Tree

This tree is an easy DIY project that can even be done with leftover pieces of wood from building furniture or other projects. Just create a simple tree-shaped wooden frame with a few supportive crossbeams to mimic lights, then decorate with your ornaments for a minimalist feel.

Fiberboard Tree

Take any kind of light board, such as fiberboard and have it cut in the triangular shape of a tree. You can paint it as you like—anything from red to light blue to green—and it’s easy to simply lean on the wall and decorate like you would a normal tree.

Chalkboard Tree

Chalkboard paint is fun to use in the home anytime—especially when you have kids. Painting one wall with chalkboard paint allows you to redraw your year every year—even every day, if you want—and then use it for all of your other creative needs throughout the rest of the year.
