2020 Silverado 1500 Towing | Stillwater, OK

The experts at U.S. News & World Report put out their list of the 13 Best Trucks for Towing earlier this spring. In a none-too-surprising result, two heavy-hitters from the Chevrolet lineup made the cut. Both the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and Colorado made the list by showing up the competition.

Big potential comes in a smaller package with the 2020 Chevrolet Colorado, available now at Wilson Chevrolet in Stillwater, Oklahoma. When properly equipped with the Duramax® 2.8-liter Turbo-Diesel, you get the power to tow up to 7,700 pounds. The truck is also available with the powerful 3.6-liter V6, which delivers 308 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque.

At the very top of the list sits the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. That isn’t too surprising given its 13,400-pound maximum available trailering rating. Furthermore, this truck features the Durabed, which is made of roll-formed high-strength steel, offers the available industry-first power-up/-down tailgate and has 12 standard tie-downs to secure your tools and supplies.

Long story short, if you’re looking for the best trucks for towing in Stillwater, Oklahoma, start at the bowtie. The 2020 Chevrolet Colorado and Silverado 1500 are both superior trucks for all manner of work and play, and they’re both available at Wilson Chevrolet.

GMC Introduces the New 2022 Hummer EV

GMC is bringing back the powerful GMC Hummer as an electric model for 2022. Much about the 2022 Hummer EV is still unknown, but GMC has revealed that the pickup truck is equipped with an impressive powertrain.

The Hummer EV won’t be available until the fall of 2021. Nevertheless, excitement has already been building for the truck since GMC announced that the truck achieves an impressive 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 lb-ft of torque. The truck also can also go 0 to 60 mph in just 3 seconds, allowing you to take enjoyable drives.

The Hummer EV manages to balance its power and capability with incredible fuel efficiency as well. By being an all-electric truck, the Hummer EV produces zero emissions, making for a more environmentally-friendly ride.  

It’s expected that the Hummer EV is being built on the BT1 platform, which is a version of the GM T1 platform that’s utilized for other GMC vehicles, including the Yukon and Sierra. More information about the truck will be available when GMC finally reveals the Hummer EV in May.  

We here at Wilson Chevrolet look forward to learning more about this latest variant of the classic Hummer vehicle. Until its release, check out the array of other SUVs, cars and trucks that we currently offer at our dealership.

Tips for Hosting a Tailgating Party in Your Dorm Room

Watching Football | Stillwater, OK

Messy weather can sabotage outdoor tailgating parties. Don’t let inclement weather put a damper on your plans, however. Here are some tips for hosting an indoor tailgating party in your dorm room.

The Right Spot

Dorms have RA’s so first find a dorm that has an RA who’s cool with having a large and loud crowd on the floor.

TV and sounds system

You have to watch the game so make sure you host the tailgate party in someone’s room that actually has a good size, high-definition TV and the right channel. It’s also a good idea to make sure the speakers are high-quality and functional, as well.

Refreshments

Food is an absolute must. It might not be so easy to whip out a grill and cook up some burgers and brats, but that’s only one option for great tailgating. Chili is a king cold-weather food and easy to make in a crockpot. Make several different types of chili and get portable coffee cups and drink holders, so guests can feast on and carry around their chilly while watching the game.

Beer is easy to keep cold in coolers, but make sure to have plenty on hand so no one has to make a beer run halfway through the game. And have plenty of chips, pretzels, and dip to keep party-goers satisfied.

Games

The dorm hallway is typically spacious enough to handle indoor yard games like giant Jenga and cornhole. Card games are also a great suggestion, since they won’t take up much space in your dorm room.

Whether you’re tailgating in your truck or using it to transport supplies for your next indoor party, Wilson Chevrolet is here to lend a hand. Stop by to browse our current selection of 2020 trucks, or to inquire about the KICKER® MultiPro Tailgate Audio System.

2020 Chevrolet Camaro Gets New V8 Trim and Updated Styling

2020 Chevy Camaro | Stillwater, OK

The Camaro is one of the most iconic muscle cars in American history, and has long been a trendsetter when it comes to pushing the limits of high-end performance and eye-catching style. The all-new 2020 Chevrolet Camaro elaborates on this legacy. With an affordable V8 option and updated styling, the all-new 2020 Chevrolet Camaro takes everything we love about this classic and makes it even better.  

New LT1 Trim

Perhaps the most exciting thing about the new 2020 Camaro is the addition of the LT1 trim, which offers a potent V8 powertrain for about $3,000 less than the current model year. It’s a high-performing version of the Camaro that’s affordable enough to suit a wider range of drivers. This lower price tag also makes the LT1 a better deal than the cheapest V8 Ford Mustang, a reality which is sure to bring Ford loyalists over to the Camaro model’s side.

Enhanced Performance

In addition to the all-new LT1 V8 trim level, the 2020 Camaro also updates the extant V6 trim. The V6 trim of the 2020 Camaro will now offer an advanced 10-speed automatic transmission, which will replace the outgoing eight-speed automatic transmission.

Updated Styling 

For the 2020 model year, Camaro SS models get a reworked front-end for enhanced curb appeal. Certain trims will offer the striking new Rally Green Exterior color, as well as several reworked styling features such as LT1 fender badges, black bow-tie emblems, and a vented hood.

Witness the 2020 Camaro for yourself when it arrives here at Wilson Chevy. In the meantime, stop by to test-drive our current inventory of 2019 Camaro models.
