The SUV Takeover

Each year, SUVs and crossovers become increasingly popular with drivers looking for that perfect balance between versatility, efficiency, fun, and style. Of course, automakers have taken note, adding new and innovative SUVs and crossovers to their lineups. All of this has lead to a robust market of SUV and crossover options for customers, allowing drivers to find the perfect ride for their lifestyle. A new report from Motor Trend gives us good reason to believe that drivers are about to have one more excellent option in the form of an all-new Chevrolet Trailblazer.

New vs. Old

The out-of-production Chevrolet TrailBlazer stopped rolling off the production line back in 2009, but sources have indicated that the brand intends to revive the TrailBlazer name soon. While most particulars are a mystery for now, it seems clear that an all-new TrailBlazer—while reviving the nameplate—would be drastically different than the former TrailBlazer.

What The TrailBlazer Would Offer

Motor Trend suggests that the all-new TrailBlazer would slot somewhere between the Chevrolet Trax and the Chevrolet Equinox in both price and size, giving drivers greater flexibility when searching for the right combination of price point and driving experience. For now, we’ll have to eagerly await forthcoming details about what Chevrolet has in store for the return of the TrailBlazer name. When we do learn more, we here at Wilson GM will be happy to share it with you.

2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD Revealed

 

The all-new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD will launch later this year, but we won’t have to wait that long to see what’s new in the heavy-duty truck. Updated engines, a stylish look, and an all-new transmission help the Chevrolet Silverado HD make the jump to comfortable and capable like never before.

A bold new design makes the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD easy to spot on the road. A premium grille and tough horizontal lines give the truck an intimidating presence.

The design is certainly something to talk about, but the real story lies under the hood. An all-new direct-injected gas engine replaces the outgoing 6.0-liter V8 engine. The engine will come paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.

The 6.6-liter Duramax® turbo-diesel V8 engine continues to produce 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque. The returning diesel engine comes mated to a new 10-speed automatic transmission that maximizes capability.

According to General Motors, the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD will feature higher payload and towing capacities compared to the outgoing model. New trailering technologies will likely mirror the systems currently found in the Silverado 1500. If so, drivers can expect trailer-theft alert, a backup hitch camera, and remote brake light check, all of which make driving the Chevrolet Silverado HD more convenient.
