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 [...]

Many customers have asked us just what it is like to kick back on a long haul with the 2024 Chevy Silverado 3500 High Country here at Jim Butler Chevy of St Louis! Even though so many various eco-friendly movements have shined a bright light on smaller and more efficient cars as of late, there’s something to be said for cruising in a vessel that can provide enough comfort to render the longer journeys in life.
This truck is so impeccably good at taking on the role of a road warrior that it effortlessly shames the competition! Many models out there that can claim payload and towing capacities of this grade begin to cross the line into the territory reserved for burly semi-tractors, known as the “slinky types” and a bit prone to wobbling. The Motor Trend auto review crew enthusiastically claimed that the Silverado has a way of remaining wonderfully placid over the road, and [...]

The Motor Trend blogging team had remarked over this past week that “Gone are the days of heavy-duty trucks sporting a graphics package and skid plate to make up an off-road trim.” These were once thought of as pure workhorses but have now fully undergone the transformation to massive recreation-ready machines.
