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.

Comparing The Chevrolet Silverado

Spring 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

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!

Both turbocharged engines earn up to an EPA-estimated 32 hwy mpg*.

Exploring the roads in style comes standard in the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox. A tried-and-true family SUV with a reputation to uphold, it’s worth betting that the new line of engines will exceed expectations for years to come.
