GM Authority is an excellent and frequently updated source for everything Chevy related and keeps us constantly informed about new releases, what types of features models will offer, and spy shots snapped of models coming soon. The brand we love so much here at Jim Butler Chevy of St Louis has promised to release 30 new EV models in the next four years and is now hard at work developing an all-electric Chevy Silverado pickup.
In an official announcement released last week, GM stated that the new Chevy Silverado pickup will be built at GM’s Factory Zero Detroit-Hamtramck assembly facility in Michigan, alongside the GMC Hummer EV SUV. Customers will have their choice of both retail and fleet versions of this new electric pickup, and high demand is expected from the very Eco-conscious and eager-for-change truck buyers out there impressed by the latest advances in technology. Many reports have hinted at the fact that this [...]
Since last year, there have been numerous reports that Chevy has been hard at work on a full-size and furious competitor to the Ford Raptor and Ram TRX, which have both enjoyed extreme popularity over the last year in the form of awards and a dedicated fan base. As we excitedly searched the internet here at Jim Butler Chevy of St Louis looking for a few clues of what may materialize, the Autoblog staff had offered up some spy shots of what appears to be a massively serious Chevy Silverado off-roader with noticeably increased capabilities.
The hood on this stealthily-spotted model was hidden under a huge bulge of camouflage, and the front bumper was a bit more turned up at the edges to provide clearance under the tires. Underneath it all is an XXL-sized skid plate that protects all of the Silverado’s most vulnerable parts, a dire necessity [...]
A prototype for the 2022 Chevy Silverado was recently spotted on the road, as it seems it was not that entirely long ago that we were checking out the all-new Chevy Silverado 1500 pickup and it’s bold styling. This video offers a close-up preview of the expected changes, even through the camouflage is heavy in presence from the front and rear. It appears that redesigned LED headlamps will replace the current lenses, and the design element bearing cutouts from the fenders is said to be ditched for a two-light arrangement like what is seen on the larger Silverado HD.
Even with the heavy camouflage at the rear, some experts taking a close look with all of us here at Jim Butler Chevy of St. Louis think that this incoming model will see a version of GMC’s MultiPro tailgate, which boasts two tailgates in one, basically turning your tailgate into stairs with speakers also available [...]
This was most definitely a year that saw many upgrades and announcements, all of which are getting us excited here at Jim Butler Chevy of St Louis. First on the list for the coming fall season was the 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500, aggressively-stanced and announced with a fresh lineup of changes. It rang in the addition of the brand-new Multiflex Tailgate and new turbo 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine, higher payload capacity and improved ease-of-use are both on the table.
The 2020 Chevy Silverado Regular cab featured the naturally aspirated 4.3 Liter LV3 V6, which cranks out 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque, as well as the naturally-aspirated 5.3-liter L82 V8 engine with Active Fuel Management, producing 355 horsepower and 373 lb-ft of torque. The 2021 Regular Cab Long [...]
Specialty Vehicle Engineering’s founder Ed Hamburger began his first performance parts business in 1970 after his resident expertise as a drag racer and induction into the NHRA NED Drag Racing Hall of Fame was a driving source of inspirational knowledge. He then began a unique business featuring a well-focused product line of the high-performance engine, suspension, and transmission components. His next exciting chapter saw the creation of Hamburger’s Oil Pan, which grew to become the dominant performance oil pan supplier in NASCAR Cup Racing and NHRA drag racing, seeing 85% of all cars sporting his specially-designed pans.
In 1987, Ed formed Street Legal Performance, which has since become Specialty Vehicle Engineering. After many great years of honing custom builds to perfection, all of us here at Jim Butler Chevy [...]
As we continue to plod through the winter months and look forward to the coming of spring here at Jim Butler, many customers have made their final decision and are talking to our first-rate finance department to conclude their New Year’s purchase. Trucks are one of the items that find their way the most rapidly off the lot, and the 2019 Silverado 2500 HD is a three-quarter ton work truck that is available in regular, crew and double-cab configurations featuring both long and standard beds. The staff on duty at Trucks.com offered up a nice piece of blogging work last week outlining the details and specs, and generally praising the trusty and reliable workhorse that is the 2500 HD.
The truck is built on GM’s full-size K2 platform, which is now shared with the GMC Sierra HD. It is available in four trims: Work
Spy shots have always been an element of the automotive game that gets immediately exciting: there is nothing as effective for mounting tension for a new release by the means of spreading spy shots around on YouTube and blogs. All of us here at Jim Butler Chevy of St Louis recognize that it may get a bit tiresome to see cars in camouflage instead of fully uncovered before a new release, but not seeing the entire package is one of those elements of the playbook that any manufacturer can recognize the benefits of.
The Chevrolet heavy-duty pickups that are being spotted in the latest offerings of spy shots offer a pretty good look at the shape and size of the 3500 dually models, and while Chevy has completely pulled all of the wraps and covering off of a few variants of the new HD
Over the past year, Business Insider provided an important article snapshot regarding just how truck-crazy consumers are right now. Pickup trucks and crossover SUVS definitely dominate the American market with the Ford F-Series, our beloved Chevy Silverado, and the Ram Pickup being the top three best-selling vehicles in America during the first half of 2018. Frank Aukofer is the auto writer for NorthJersey.com, where he hit the nail on the head during the first sentence of a 2019 Chevy Silverado review when he reflected that when you are dealing with the scope of trucks, “it’s all about loyalty.”
There are really six truly full-size pickups in the U.S., and it could be arguable that they all do the same things. They have the ability to carry large loads, tow heavy equipment, and haul the family around in a properly raised-up-off-the-road comfort level. Everyone here
If there is one thing that all of us at Jim Butler Chevy can agree on, it’s that trucks are not supposed to have a gentle aesthetic. The next-generation Chevy Silverado HD trucks are going to sport a grille that has a great function, but looks totally different compared to past versions. The traditional bowtie emblem will be abandoned for a grille that has “Chevrolet” prominently stamped across the front, with the lettering cut in a custom fit to increase airflow. It will be reminiscent of the hollow “flow-tie” that first appeared on the fifth-generation Z28 Camaro, bringing back a favorite in spirit for 2020.
When hauling heavy loads and towing, keeping the engine cool is one of the most important things to keep in mind. The better an engine is able to breathe, the better it will be able to perform, and all
Trucks have really been gaining popularity by leaps and bounds lately: it seems that even when people are coming to visit us here at Jim Butler about adding a sedan to their ranks, their gaze can’t help but wander over to the awesome offerings for next year! Hauling, rigging, digging, or just plain playing in the various elements and locations that trucks thrive in are best accomplished with a brand-new model, and the 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 will be offered with an all-new, technologically advanced 2.7-L Turbo. Standard on LT and RST trims, the new engine delivers an SAE-certified 310 horsepower, and 348 lb-ft of torque, a 22 percent increase than the 4.3-L V-6 it replaces.
The next-year’s model with the 2.7L turbo delivers 0-60 mph performance in less than seven seconds, and had dropped 380 lbs total of weight. Chief engineer Tom Sutter
