Chevy is Offering the Most Diverse Silverado Lineup Ever for 2019, Including a 310-Horsepower Four-Cylinder Engine!
The automotive market has changed so much over the last 15 years, and its constant evolution is taking us to places we never expected and showing us things we never thought we’d see. After Ford and Chevy integrated modern four-cylinder engines into the Mustang and Camaro, it was only a matter of time before the led to even stranger things, and in this case, that’s a four-cylinder Silverado. Chevy has announced that the 2019 Chevy Silverado will be offered with a 2.7-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder. In fact, it’s not only offering it but listing it as standard equipment on the entry-level LT and the RST. Both come exclusively with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The Chevy Bolt Is Here for the Long Haul; Won’t See a Refresh Until 2025
The Chevrolet Bolt EV is a five-door all-electric hatch bubble released just a few years ago for the 2017 model year. Now, rumor has it GM has a new-gen in the works, but apparently, it won’t see the light of day for at least another seven years.

Chevrolet Teases 2020 Silverado HD, Debut Set in the Fall Of This Year
The Chevy Silverado has been a hot topic lately. The 2019 Silverado 1500 was unveiled in January at the Detroit Auto Show. Now, it’s the 2020 Silverado HD’s turn in the spotlight. It’s not scheduled to make its debut until the fall of this year, but Chevrolet is getting a head-start on the teasing game with the first official image of the heavy-duty pickup.
As the SUV Obsession Continues, Ford and Chevy Look to Light Their Sedan Lineup
It looks like sedans are slowly getting extinct. We have seen the Volvo S80 and the Mitsubishi Lancer being discontinued in 2017, and next in line are sedans from Chevrolet and Ford. According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, Ford and GM will drop a number of sedans as crossovers have become the priority choice of consumers. Which cars are these? Read on to know.
Ford to Kill off the Fiesta and Taurus in the U.S. for Good; GM Killing off the Chevy Sonic
Ford and General Motors are doing a little house cleaning, and a few models from each brand are expected to get discarded in the near future. On the chopping block on Ford’s end are the Taurus and the Fiesta. They’re expected to be joined by the Chevrolet Sonic after a Wall Street Journal report revealed that all three models are now on borrowed time in the U.S.
There’s an Outrageous 800-HP Chevy Silverado Package Available Through Dealerships!
Think about the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and its 808-horsepower it achieves on pump gas. Now put that horsepower into a short-bed, single-cab pickup truck. Yeah, that’s exactly what we’re talking about.
This is the 2018 Yenko/SC Chevrolet Silverado 1500, and it’s built in New Jersey by a company called Specialty Vehicle Engineering. Though the original Yenko brand of dealership upgrades is long gone, SVE keeps the image alive through its upgrade kits offered for several General Motors vehicles.
For the 2018 Yenko/SC Silverado, SVE takes a regular Silverado 1500 Z71 and shoehorns a custom-built 6.8-liter supercharged V-8 under the hood with nearly every performance part imaginable. The result is an 800-horsepower truck with 4WD able to outgun most sports cars on the road. Best of all, anyone can order the truck through their

2018 Chevrolet Traverse RS
Introduced for the 2018 model year, the second-generation Chevrolet Traverse is a significant departure from its predecessor, boasting a sportier look, state-of-the-art technology, and offering best-in-class maximum cargo room. The old 3.6-liter V-6 was also replaced with a brand-new unit, but Chevy also announced plans to fit a turbocharged four-cylinder in the SUV. The new engine was unveiled at the 2018 Chicago Motor Show in the Traverse RS, the first-ever Traverse to sport a turbocharged powerplant.
Alongside forced induction, this model also gets a few visual upgrades inside and out. It’s pretty much the SUV version of the Sonic RS. It also gets quite a few extra standard features. It’s not the fanciest trim available, but it’s very similar to the Premier model in terms of equipment and price. You can always go with the High Country model if you’re into a more luxurious cabin, but if you’re looking for a sporty appearance, the new RS is the best choice you have. Let’s see what set it apart in the review below.

Chevy Traverse RS Looks Like The Better Daily Driver In Chicago
The 2018 Chicago Auto Show is now in full swing, bringing with it a fresh batch of debuts to ogle and pick apart. Chevrolet is showing up to the party with a new RS version of its Traverse mid-size SUV, and as you might have guessed from the addition of the two letters to the tail, it’s a more aggressive iteration of the high-riding utility vehicle. However, despite the sporty connotations, the Traverse RS isn’t really all that impressive when it comes to its performance. Rather, we think the extra torque, new styling bits, and fancy tech in the cabin make it better suited for the rigors of daily driving.

The 2018 Chevy Traverse RS Gets Ready for Chicago
Chevrolet pulled the covers off the all-new second-generation 2018 Traverse crossover at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show. Now, a year later, Chevy is finally making the Traverse RS available to customers. The news happens as Chevy officially pulls the covers off the sporterized SUV at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show.
The Traverse RS takes cues off other Chevy RS models by adding blacked-out styling cues, larger 20-inch gray wheels, and those red RS badges. The Traverse RS even gets blacked-out Chevy bowties. The overall look isn’t terribly different than the Traverse’s other trim levels, but it’s just enough to justify the special badging.
But the outward appearance is only half the story. The big news is what’s under the RS’ hood.
Chevy has dropped in its familiar 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. This marks the first time the Traverse has used forced induction since its introduction in 2009. The engine uses direct fuel injection and variable valve timing on its dual overhead cams to deliver 257 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, 90 percent of which is available at only 2,100 rpm. The engine pairs exclusively with GM’s nine-speed automatic transmission that powers the front wheels. Unlike the V-6 Traverse, AWD is not available.

The 2019 Chevy Silverado Offers an all-new 3.0-liter Duramax; Revised 5.3- and 6.2-Liter Engines
The Chevrolet Silverado never actually left us, but the debut of the all-new 2019 model feels like a second coming for the Bowtie’s massively popular half-ton pickup. It has a dramatic new look, a lighter packaging, and a staggering number — eight in total — of trim options that’ll make your heads spin in excitement. Best of all, though, is the fact that Chevy is also diversifying the Silverado’s engine lineup, including an all-new Duramax 3.0-liter inline-six turbo-diesel engine that will compliment revised versions of Chevy’s 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter V-8 engines.
2019 Chevrolet Silverado
Chevrolet has pulled the covers off its all-new, 2019 Silverado 1500 half-ton pickup truck. While Chevy teased the truck back in December at the Texas Motor Speedway at Chevy’s centennial celebration, the full details only became available at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. Chevy also made sure everyone knew the 2018 Detroit show marked 100 years since the brand launched its first pickup.
The 2019 Silverado is completely new and shares almost zero parts from the outgoing truck. Even the 5.3-liter and 6.2-liter V-8s are revised for increased efficiency. The truck’s fully boxed frame is now 88 pounds lighter but has 10 percent more torsional rigidity, and the truck’s overall weight has dropped 450 pounds when comparing crew cab V-8 models from 2018 and 2019. Chevy did this by using aluminum. Yes, after years of dogging Ford for building its trucks from recycled beer cans, Chevy has made the switch, too. But not every body panel made the transition – only the parts that swing, which includes the hood, doors, and tailgate. The rest is steel. This includes the bed floor, which Chevy says is made from higher-strength, roll-formed steel than before.
Of course, the interior has been completely revamped, too. You’ll find those details, along with so much more, down below.

The 2019 Silverado’s 3.0-Liter Duramax Is Chevy’s First I-6 Turbodiesel
Chevrolet is breaking the status quo with its all-new 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder Duramax turbodiesel. Announce in conjunction with the new 2019 Silverado 1500, this light-duty turbodiesel marks a few big milestones for the automaker. It breaks convention by avoiding the familiar V-6 design used by both Ford and Ram’s 3.0-liter V-6 turbodiesels.
First, the 3.0-liter I-6 Duramax is the first straight-six diesel engine Chevy has ever made, and second, it’s the first inline-six produced since the Chevy Trailblazer and its 4.2-liter Atlas I-6 ended production during the 2009 model year.
Chevy Offers the 2019 Silverado in Eight Trim Levels Across Three Groups
The Chevrolet Silverado made its long-awaited debut at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. If you’re already drooling over the possibility of owning one in the future, you’re in for a treat because the Silverado will have no shortage of trim options to choose from. According to Chevy, the new half-ton pickup truck will be available in eight different trim options, spread across three different ranges. As far as getting your money’s worth, the new Silverado is giving you plenty of breathing room to choose the best trim that suits your needs and your wallets.
Does The 2019 Silverado’s Dash Resemble A Porg?
I might just have an overactive imagination, but I swear I see a Porg in the center console of the new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. The Porg is a mystical bird-like creature from Star Wars: The Last Jedi and the similarities are just uncanny – especially with the Silverado’s optional brown leather dash treatment. The Porg’s cute little head and pudgy round body have the same shape as the Chevy’s 8.0-inch MyLink screen, HVAC controls, toggle switches, and connectivity ports.
Of course, I’m sure Chevy’s interior designer didn’t glean inspiration from the Porg. In fact, he likely takes serious offense to my observation considering the years he’s spent sculpting and perfecting his vision, and only then to fight for its approval against endless committee meetings and reviews.
Still, It’s going to take me a while for this coincidence to escape my mind. Surely I’m not the only one. Are you seeing this? Tell me in the comments.
Watch The 2019 Chevy Silverado’s Power-Lift Tailgate!
Chevrolet’s all-new 2019 Silverado 1500 is making waves at Detroit thanks to its slick design, new interior, and list of high-tech features. One such feature is the power up/down tailgate. Simply press a button and the tailgate lowers and lifts on its own. Button locations include the tailgate itself, the key fob, and inside the cabin. Chevy is the first to offer such a tailgate. Ford did debut a power-release tailgate on the 2015 F-150, but it doesn’t close on its own. Chevy’s power tailgate is available on the higher trim level trucks and comes standard on the range-topping High Country.
Other new features at the 2019 Silverado’s business end include larger CornerSteps and new in-bed storage boxes. The new bumper steps are said to accommodate steel-toe boots, which should be a hit at the job site. The cargo bed also has available storage boxes that secure to the bed walls. These removable boxes offer lockable and water-tight storage for gear while not impeding on the width of the bed floor. A sheet of 4x8 plywood or drywall will still fit between the wheel wells.
Last but not least, Chevy has added a 120-volt household power outlet inside the bed. The three-pronged outlet will run any power tools or tailgating party equipment.

Chevrolet Gives the 2019 Silverado a Proper Diet
Chevrolet promised to turn heads at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, and it did just that with the introduction of the 2019 Silverado. There’s a lot to unpack about Chevy’s all-new, half-ton pickup truck, and one of the most interesting developments about it has to do with its weight. It may not seem like it in on the surface, but the new Silverado, among other things, is 450 pounds lighter than the current model.
The Chevrolet Traverse is all-new for 2018, and it’s a big improvement over its predecessor.
It sports an all-new design inside and out, and it offers more space for up to eight passengers and their stuff. Going nose-to-nose with the new VW Atlas and other midsize, three-row crossovers, it makes a pretty solid case for itself.
That was the main impression the new Chevrolet Traverse gave me during a week-long test drive. Is this the right crossover for your family? Read on.
