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.
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.
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.
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.

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
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.

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.
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.

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.
