Redesigned Silverado HD Coming in 2020

2019 Silverado HD | Wilson GM in Stillwater, OK

What To Expect

The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 was just redesigned for 2019. Now, it’s the Silverado HD’s turn. We will see a redesigned Silverado HD for the 2020 model year. This truck will be stronger and more capable than the current model and will come with advanced technology options.

One of the most impressive things about the new Silverado HD is its increased towing power. Engineers were able to squeeze an additional 52% of towing capability into the truck. It now boasts a maximum rating of 35,500 pounds.

New Features

Jaclyn McQuaid, chief engineer, Silverado HD, said, “We increased towing capabilities across the line, not just for dually buyers. We added class-leading towing technologies, such as 15 available camera views, to make trailering more convenient, whether pulling a large cargo trailer or fifth-wheel camper. And we made a host of changes to make tasks easier.”

There will be two new powertrain options. The standard engine will be a new 6.6-liter V8 rated at 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque. This is an 11 percent increase in horsepower and a 22 percent increase in torque, which translates to 18 percent more towing power. For even more power, there is the available Duramax 6.6-liter Turbo-Diesel V8 that generates 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque.

Aaron Wilson Makes $10k Donation to Stillwater Public Schools

Donation to Stillwater Public Schools

For decades, Chevrolet has found ways to show its support for its local communities and citizens who are dedicated to improving them. Public education is no doubt one of the most important factors for growth and development in any location. As a gesture of their support to the local Oklahoma schools, Chevrolet and the Wilson Auto Family were able to make a generous donation to Stillwater Public Schools.

 

Aaron Wilson, the president of Chevy Drives Oklahoma and a part of the Wilson Auto Family, announced the donation in a speech at an all-faculty meeting over the summer. It took a phone call to the regional office in Dallas, Texas to suggest that Chevrolet support the local Stillwater Public Schools. They say that “Chevy drives Oklahoma,” but when Chevrolet agreed to donate $10,000 to the Stillwater Public Schools, Wilson could proudly announce that #ChevyDrivesEducation. The Wilson Auto Family is so honored to be part of a movement that supports the local education.

 

Stillwater Public Schools are just one of many public school systems across the state of Oklahoma that will receive money as part of the #ChevyDrivesEducation program. In addition to its donations, Chevy also shows support to education by providing the most affordable prices possible through special discounts to educators.

 

Here at Wilson GM, we are proud to support those who work hard to educate our community.

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.

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.

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.

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!
