Meet the All-New 2021 Tahoe and Suburban

Chevy recently announced the all-new 2021 Tahoe and Suburban. Both models will elaborate on the previous model year’s reputation for accommodating passengers and hauling cargo. The 2021 Tahoe and Suburban will come with new tech and features, and it will provide more cabin space and better driving dynamics than previous versions.

“We’ve taken what people love about these pioneering SUVs and made them even better – adding more room for people and cargo, more advanced technology and an unrivaled driving experience,” said Barry Engle, executive vice president and president of General Motors North America.

According to the announcement, the upcoming Tahoe has 66 percent more cargo room behind the third-row seats, while the Suburban has 19 percent more maximum cargo space behind the first-row seats. Third-row passengers will also get 10 more inches of legroom in the new Tahoe.

Both models will also deliver a smoother, more cushioned ride thanks to available Magnetic Ride Control technology paired with a first-in-class Air Ride Adaptive Suspension. The latter system yields up to 4 inches of ride-height adjustment and load-leveling at each corner of the vehicle to better absorb the bumps you encounter on rough roads.

Other updates include five available display screens for enhanced infotainment options, 30 advanced safety and driver-assist tools, and a best-in-class amount of nine camera views system for safer and simpler towing. Chevy has also extended these models’ powertrain options to better suit demands. You can choose an all-new efficient 3.0-liter Duramax® turbo-diesel engine or the more potent 6.2-liter V8 with Dynamic Fuel Management that churns out 420 horsepower.

Loyal Chevy Truck Owners Honored With Truck Legends Program

Chevy truck owners | Sterling, CO

For over 100 years, pickup trucks have been a mainstay of the Chevrolet lineup. The modern Chevrolet Silverado can follow its lineage all the way back to the 1918 Chevrolet One-Ton. To celebrate a century of trucks, Chevy created its Truck Legends program, which is an exclusive group of the most loyal Chevy truck owners.

Chevrolet officially started the program at the State Fair of Texas in September 2016. Since that time, the group has grown to over 60,000 members.

To become a part of this legendary group, you have to own a Chevrolet truck with at least 100,000 miles on the odometer or have purchased or leased more than one new Chevy truck in your life.

Once you are an official Chevy Truck Legend, you will receive a welcome package that includes an exclusive cap and Legends decals that you can put on your truck. You may also get special invitations to special Chevy events. All Truck Legends members are invited to share photos and stories about their trucks in the member gallery.

The Truck Legends program can also help you save money with special discounts from a variety of Chevy partners. You can also purchase exclusive Truck Legends merchandise.

If you want to join the Truck Legends program, come talk to us at Transwest Chevy Buick to find the perfect Chevy truck for your lifestyle.

Silverado Shows Capability in Best in the Desert Race

Chevrolet stepped onto the desert race scene back in 2017 with its Colorado ZR2 driven by Hall Racing. One of the biggest benefits to entering the Colorado ZR2 in the desert races was to test its off-roading capabilities to the max. From those races, the Chevy Performance created upgrades and modifications to the Colorado that it passed onto consumers.

Now, it’s time to see what the Silverado is capable of, so the team put the Silverado to the test in the 2019 Best in the Desert Race series.

The competing Silverado was an LT Trail Boss model with a 6.2-liter V8 and 10-speed automatic transmission capable of 420 horsepower. Modifications were limited due to its entry as a 1200 Stock Class so the suspension, underbody, and safety equipment couldn’t be over-amplified. But the performance team was able to gear it up with long-distance suspension, front and rear jounce shocks, and a set of high-capacity, prototype Multimatic Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve.

The Silverado Z71 is already a durable and reliable off-roading truck, so it will be exciting to see what innovations the races will produce to make even better Silverado trucks for the future.

One desert race can put more wear and tear on a truck than most owners will experience in years of use, so you can rely on the trucks you buy at Transwest Chevrolet Buick to be more than capable for your needs.

Pickup trucks are everywhere, so it can be hard to stand out from the crowd if you want a unique truck. One great way to have a truck that looks different from everybody else’s is by choosing a special edition model.

Chevrolet recently announced that the 2020 Silverado 1500 will be available with two of the most popular special edition packages, Midnight and Rally Edition. Both of these flaunt unparalleled designs.

The Midnight Edition is available on the LT Trail Boss and the Custom Trail Boss trims. It adds a 2-inch factory suspension lift and the Z71 Off-Road Package. That equips skid plates, 18-inch painted wheels, and an automatic locking rear differential. As the name implies, the Midnight edition will have an all-black look with black Bowties, black exhaust tips, black off-road assist steps, black bumpers, and a black grille.

Rally

For a Silverado with a sportier look, choose the Rally Edition. It is available on the Custom and RST trims and is available in Red Hot, Silver Ice Metallic, Black, or Summit White exterior paint. Its unique styling includes a body-colored grille, black Bowties, black Rally stripes on the tailgate and hood, black assist steps, and black exhaust tips. The look is completed with 20-inch black painted wheels.

You can purchase either of these stylish special edition Chevy trucks from Transwest Chevrolet Buick.

2020-Chevrolet-Silverado-Sterling-CO

Diesel lovers can rejoice: There’s a new turbo-diesel engine in town. The all-new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado has added a new available 3.0-liter Duramax turbo-diesel inline-six engine to provide its customers with more choice and versatility.

The 2020 Silverado turbo-diesel engine will have class-leading torque and horsepower, while still providing consumers with the fuel economy and capabilities they want. It the first-ever inline-six turbo-diesel to be offered in Chevrolet’s light-duty truck lineup.

“From the moment the engine is started, to its idle, acceleration, and highway cruising, the 3.0L Duramax performance will change perceptions of what a diesel engine can offer in refinement,” said Nicola Menarini, director for Diesel Truck Engine Program Execution. “With advanced technologies that draw on global diesel expertise, it’s a no-compromise choice for those who want the capability and driving range of a diesel in a light-duty truck.”

The 2020 Silverado turbo-diesel engine is one of six powertrain options available on the Silverado. It will be an available option on the LT, RST, LTZ, and High Country trim levels and will come paired to a ten-speed automatic transmission. The turbo-diesel provides 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, reaching 95 percent of peak torque at just 1,250 rpm – giving you plenty of towing power.

We at Transwest Chevrolet Buick are huge fans of the current Silverado, so we’re thrilled that it will be adding yet another engine option to its already exhaustive lineup of powertrain possibilities.

Chevrolet Silverado To Get New Multi-Function Tailgate

2019 Chevrolet Silverado | Sterling CO

General Motors has been winning the attention of experts and enthusiasts alike with a feature on the GMC Sierra – the new multi-function tailgate called the MultiPro. Many speculated whether or not GM would be including the six-function tailgate on Chevrolet Silverado models as well. We have some news for you: the MultiPro tailgate will also be on Silverado models, according to spy shots of a prototype spotted in testing.

 

The multi-function tailgate will likely debut on the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado. As mentioned above, it can be configured in six different ways – from stair steps up into the bed for ease of loading to a truck bed extension to a work desk. It’s likely that the Chevrolet model won’t use the “MultiPro” name, as it has been trademarked by GMC and associated with GMC’s “Like a Pro” slogan.

 

Experts are already speculating that the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will receive the new multi-function tailgate as an option for the 2020 model year, while HD models may get it in mid-2020 or even 2021. Still, the six-way truck bed will be a highly anticipated feature on either option. While Chevrolet has not confirmed the feature for the Silverado lineup yet, the feature’s inclusion on prototype models is a positive sign.
