Finding the perfect large SUV for your needs has just gotten a lot easier. Chevrolet recently announced that it is expanding its Tahoe and Suburban lineups with brand-new Premier Plus special editions. These new special edition models will combine superior power and premium creature comforts to make the large SUV models even more appealing.
Each Premier Plus model will come equipped with a 6.2-liter V8 engine, which is currently only available on the exclusive Performance Package. This engine produces 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, while also utilizing direct injection, Active Fuel Management™, and continuously variable valve timing to make it more efficient. It will come with a 10-speed automatic transmission. According to Chevrolet, 36 percent of all Chevy SUV special edition models sold have this engine.
The 2019 Tahoe and Suburban Premier Plus editions will also offer consumers the chance to have a unique interior, which is highlighted by heated and ventilated two-tone Black- and Mahogany-colored leather seats, a Jet Black trim, chrome accents both inside and out, and a head-up display.
If you’d like to add one of these luxurious and powerful special edition SUVs to your garage, the 2019 Tahoe Premier Plus will come in at a starting MSRP of $74,100, while the Suburban Premier Plus has a starting MSRP of $76,900. Both vehicles will have a destination charge of $1,295. For more information, or to order one for yourself, visit us at Transwest Chevrolet Buick.
Chevrolet released the 2019 Silverado Medium-Duty lineup, the first class 4,5 and 6 Silverados in 10 years since the company’s Chevy Kodiak. Although the trucks aren’t expected to be delivered until later this year or early 2019 Transwest Chevrolet Buick is currently taking orders for your fleet! The all-new Silverado 4500HD, 5500HD and 6500HD have been called the “most customer-focused medium-duty truck” and “the Silverado on steroids”.
So how do the medium-duty Silverados differ from the Ford and Rams in the market? General Motors saw the opportunity to complete a commercial line-up for Chevrolet by creating a truck from the ground up with a heavy focus on what commercial and fleet buyers need in order to have a successful business.
When it comes to owning your own business with a small or large fleet there are many challenges that one can face along the way. Employee retention, maintenance, the cost of upfits, and having the ability to customize the vehicle to suit your needs. These are just a few factors that play a part in choosing the vehicle that will help your business be successful which General Motors capitalized on with this lineup.
To help with the cost of upfits the Chevrolet Silverado 2019 has frames that are smooth and factory painted. These two features make upfits less costly and easier to configure while the factory paint extends the lifetime of the frame.
In addition to the cost-effective frame set up, the new medium-duty Silverados have seven cab to axle options with five axle to back lengths (in 8-inch increments). This allows business owners to easily customize the bodies (dump bodies, rollbacks, freight boxes, flatbed) that they are putting on the frame without having to pay for extensions.
With the drivers and employees in mind, the 2019 Chevrolet medium-duties were built to be the most powerful, highly maneuverable and connected truck in the market.
Factory installed rear air suspension reduces the wind noise and harsh vibrations for a smooth ride.
The 2019 medium-duty Silverados have a tilted hood which allows easy access to the engine bay. The engineers behind the scenes also duplicated a design feature of a very unlikely source, the Chevrolet Camaro. The “flowtie” feature on the Camaro was added to the truck to allow more airflow to the engine.
This is an exciting time for General Motors, Chevrolet, and the commercial truck market! Call our Sales Team at Transwest Chevrolet Buick to learn more about the specs, features, and benefits of the all-new Silverado and place your order for your fleet today.
The 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe full-size SUV is powerful yet efficient and brimming with interior space and features. Perhaps the most enticing element of the new Tahoe is its wide range of entertainment and safety technologies.
For starters, the 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe’s infotainment system features Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility, which gives you access to your favorite apps on the go. You can also opt for an available Rear Seat Entertainment System with Blu-ray® playback to keep the kids (or adults!) in the back entertained.
For your convenience, the Tahoe boasts a 110-volt three-prong outlet, up to seven USB ports, available built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi®, and available wireless device charging. Other in-cabin tech includes the available Head-Up Display and the available 8-inch diagonal reconfigurable cluster with Driver Information Center.
In terms of safety, the Tahoe is packed with the most advanced airbag and seatbelt technologies currently available. However, in an effort to prevent accidents and keep those airbags and seatbelts from being necessary, the Tahoe features a number of standard or available active safety features. Those features include Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking, Forward Collision Alert, the Safety Alert Driver Seat, the Rear Vision Camera, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Rear Park Assist, and Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert.

Summer is a time for relaxing and enjoying the hot weather – but just because you’re relaxing doesn’t mean you can ignore taking care of your car. To help keep your car running smoothly all year, we’ve put together some quick summer car maintenance tips.
Keep cool. You don’t want to get stuck in the sweltering summer heat without air conditioning, so make sure you get your air conditioning unit checked over if it’s been acting up so that you don’t have to worry about sweating in the sun. Also, check your car’s coolant levels to ensure it doesn’t overheat.
Change your car’s wipers. It’s likely your windshield wipers saw a lot of action during the winter and spring months. That makes summer the perfect time to change them so that your visibility doesn’t suffer in the warmer months. It’s easy to do by yourself and a cheap way to keep your car out on the road.
Give your car a clean. When your car’s windows are dirty, it be harder to see obstacles out on the road. Give your car a good scrub down to not only make it look sparkly, but also to improve your visibility on those long evenings when the sun is low.
If you find that your car needs more service, make sure to bring it in to Transwest Chevrolet Buick for our talented technicians to look over.

One of the General Motors brands that we are proud to represent is Chevrolet, which has a storied history here in the United States. Chevrolet was founded back in 1911. Since that time, it has produced a wide range of powerful and efficient vehicles here in the US and globally.
Chevy’s car lineup includes the Chevrolet Spark, Sonic, Cruze, Malibu, and Impala. Chevy is also known for its performance models, including the Chevrolet Camaro muscle car and the high-performance Chevrolet Corvette, which includes the Stingray, Grand Sport, Z06, and ZR1. Chevy’s electric car lineup includes the plug-in hybrid Chevy Volt and the all-electric, extended-range Chevrolet Bolt EV.
Crossovers and SUVs have been growing in popularity here in the US in the last two decades, and Chevy has met that growing demand with a diverse lineup of dependable and efficient models. This lineup includes, from smallest to largest, the Chevrolet Trax, Equinox, Traverse, Tahoe, and Suburban.
Chevy’s truck lineup includes the world’s most dependable pickup truck, based on vehicle registration data from the last three decades: the Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Other trucks include the Silverado 2500HD, Silverado 3500HD, and Colorado.
Chevrolet also offers a lineup of commercial vehicles.
The whole of the Chevrolet lineup is available at Transwest Chevy Buick. Come and have a test drive, and you will be sure to find the vehicle you are looking for.
The first Chevy truck to arrive on the market was introduced in 1918 and was known as the One-Ton. As the first purpose-built truck from the brand, it was an affordable and flexible platform that customers could build on to create a vehicle that suited their needs.
In 1929, the International Series AC Light Delivery became the first truck to feature an OHV six-cylinder engine, which offered 46 horsepower and 125 lb-ft of torque. This truck still had an old-school style, though, something that changed with the 1938 Chevrolet Half-Ton, which was the first truck designed by the Art and Color department.
The truck style continued to change with the 1947 Chevy 3100 Series offering an all-new look that featured a 5-bar horizontal grille and a rounded profile. Throughout the years, the Chevy truck style began to take trips from the sedans in the brand’s lineup, incorporating more comfortable seating and more color options.
In 1973, though, we got the first glimpse of the square body design that helped improve aerodynamics and efficiency, something the brand continues to do even now.
Now, to help celebrate the Chevy truck lineup’s 100th birthday, the brand is offering a Centennial Edition Silverado and Colorado, which looks to its legacy for design inspiration.
The 100-year history of Chevy trucks is filled with amazing milestone moments and great trucks. We look forward to the next century!
