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.

Three Tips to Safe Holiday Travels

Safe Holiday Travels
Don’t Text & Drive

Thousands and thousands of people will be hitting the road soon for their annual Holiday visits. There will be whole families, young couples, and individual students driving home from school to visit their parents over Thanksgiving and Christmas. If you’re driving home this Holiday season, use these tips from Wilson GM for safe Holiday Travels along the way.

Check The Weather

Before you head out, take a quick look at the weather forecast and at the current radar. Watch for any potential storms heading in the direction of your route. If possible, consider waiting it out, or go into your drive prepared to take your time. Be sure to equip your vehicle with important safety tools, too, like extra food and water, reflective cones, and jumper cables.

Stay Visible

Whether you’re driving in the rain or in the middle of a sunny day, it’s always important to take the necessary steps to ensure that you’re 100% visible. Clean your headlights before you depart, and make sure that all headlights and taillights are working properly.

Put Your Cell Phone Away

You know that cell phones are dangerous distractions in cars, so why tempt yourself? Put your cell phone where it cannot be reached from the driver’s seat so you won’t be tempted to peek. It’s a good idea to take frequent breaks when driving long distances anyway, so allow yourself time to stop every couple of hours for a break and a social media check.

Family Halloween Activities

Family Halloween Activities

Getting together with the family for a night of fright, thrills, and candy can make any Halloween one to remember. Here are some fun family Halloween activities recommended by us here at Wilson GM of Stillwater.

Watch a Spooky Movie

Stay in for the night and watch a Halloween classic, like The Nightmare Before Christmas, Casper, or Hocus Pocus. Family-friendly movies are a great way to give your kids a taste of the thrill that Halloween has to offer without giving them nightmares they’ll never forget. You could even go the extra mile and invite some friends over for a horror showing once the kids are tucked away in bed.

Have a Themed Dinner

Like any holiday, Halloween has its own set of recipes, but you don’t have to be a master chef to make some scary delights. Something as simple as making olives into eyeballs can put a spin on dinner to make it a little different from the ordinary meal.

Go to the Library

It may not seem like a way to make Halloween memorable, but a trip to the library in your crossover can make the holiday much more fun. Have the kids pick out some spooky bedtime stories. They can read the books themselves or have you read the books to them as they lay their heads on a pillow on the scariest night of the year.
