At Jim Butler Chevy of St Louis, we have always known that Chevrolet is known for building trucks that thoroughly “go the distance”! There are 18,500 members of the Chevy Truck Legends community on Facebook, where drivers are ecstatic about their rigs hitting the prestigious 100,000-mile mark on the odometer. For some drivers, this is an amazing milestone, while others are just barely getting warmed up to the tremendous task at hand.

The Top Speed blogging crew recently shed light on some very resilient truck owners who own a Silverado that you just can’t keep down! The incredibly heavy-duty Silverado 3500 is a tried-and-true workhorse that managed to offer one very happy couple in Michigan six wonderful years with no major problems or repairs needed. The LBZ Duramax engine found in this million-mile model is legendary and takes up residence in a very aspirational 2006 model. Owners Hugh and Tammy Pennington were thrilled to put over 600 miles a day on the truck [...]

2023 Chevy Silverado 1500

Year after year, our customers have expressed their continued satisfaction with the Chevy Silverado 1500, particularly with its capability and technology features. Here at Jim Butler Chevy of St Louis, we don’t expect that to change in 2023!

The Silverado hit the scene in the late ‘90s, offering the most advanced state-of-the-art tech for the time: a CD player, electronic locking, awesome AC, and power windows. This was a completely different era for trucks, and the term “state-of-the-art” certainly meant something different than it does today! During the Silverado’s second generation, drivers enjoyed the addition of OnStar, which assists drivers with various needs, ranging from navigational to emergency. Drivers could [...]

The Chevrolet Silverado is consistently earning accolades to solidify its status as a segment-leading contender. The Silverado reached its fourth generation in 2019, but completely reworked the truck this year with extra safety features, interior upgrades, and larger displays.

The ZR2 Bison Variant brings the ingredients to conquer the trail with five protective skid plates and steel rock rails, showing up armed and dangerous for the muddy and exciting challenges ahead. The 3.0-liter turbo diesel now sees a jump in torque production up to 495 lb-ft, and you can pick from 10 trims, 3 bed configurations, and 3 cab sizes. 

After the ZR2 made its debut last year, [...]

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.
