2020 Chevrolet Silverado

One Capable Heavy Duty Truck

When you’re shopping for a heavy-duty pickup truck, it’s likely that one of your top priorities is a capable one. Luckily, Chevrolet has just introduced its most capable heavy-duty truck yet — the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD. The all-new Silverado HD has been engineered to offer a 52-percent increase in its maximum towing capability, allowing the truck to tow up to 35,500 pounds — perfect for getting any of your tougher jobs done.

The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD Is Amazing

“We set out to make the best HD trucks on the market, bar none,” said Jaclyn McQuaid, chief engineer for the Silverado HD. “We increased towing capabilities across the line, not just for dually buyers. We added class-leading towing technologies, such as 15 available camera views, to make trailering more convenient, whether pulling a large cargo trailer or fifth-wheel camper. And we made a host of changes to make tasks easier.”

Even More Towing

Not only can the Silverado HD tow more, but it is also wider, longer, and taller. It has five trim levels to choose from – Work Truck, Custom, LT, LTZ, and High Country — and also has 22 available cab, bed, chassis, and driveline configurations. With these options, you can easily get the pickup truck that’s just right for your needs. You will also have two engine options to choose from. A 6.6-liter V8 engine is standard, putting out 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque. You can also opt for a diesel with the Duramax® 6.6-liter turbodiesel V8, which puts out 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque.

This new heavy-duty pickup truck will be ready to go on sale this summer. In the meantime, stop by Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet near Hickory, NC to test-drive our current inventory of Silverado models.

There are three short advertising films in the campaign, with one front and center: “A Little Bit Country, A Little Bit Rock ‘n Roll.”

“A Little Bit Country, A Little Bit Rock ‘n Roll”

Chevrolet is an all-American brand, and it truly shows with this commercial. “A Little Bit Country, A Little Bit Rock ‘n Roll” celebrates the diversity within Silverado owners.

Strong Engine & Frame

Thanks to its strong engine and hefty frame, the Silverado can tackle tough climates and tougher jobs. Whether you live in Colorado and need to haul your snowboarding gear or you run a construction company in Alabama, you’ll feel confident behind the wheel of the Silverado. In addition to the three TV spots, Chevrolet is incorporating digital ads, sponsored television appearances, and print ads into the Silverado ad campaign.

2018 Centennial Editions Celebrate 100 Years of Chevrolet Trucks

100 Years of Chevrolet Trucks

100 Years Of Greatness

Today, Chevrolet is one of the world’s foremost producers of high-feature trucks that drivers depend on for everything from work to play and everything in between. Such success doesn’t happen overnight, though. In fact, 2018 marks 100 years of Chevrolet trucks. Here at Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet, we want to celebrate by taking a look at some highlights from a century of Chevy trucks.

Game-changing origins

The first purpose-built Chevrolet truck was first available 100 years ago, in 1918. The Chevrolet One-Ton was a budget-conscious, flexible truck platform available as a cowl and chassis or an express body with an option eight-post curtain top. The One-Ton was available for just over $1,000 and delivered 36 horsepower. Perhaps this doesn’t sound like much, but this was just the first in a line of now legendary Chevrolet trucks.

Legendary Legacy

By the 1960’s, Chevrolet trucks came in a variety of models and had huge appeal to drivers of all sorts. The 1967 C/K10 Series is a particular stand-out and signaled a shift in style that foreshadowed the signature look of modern classics like the Silverado. The C/K10 Series was affordable but boasted considerably more torque and power than early models like the original One-Ton.

Leading the way in performance and innovation

The 2018 Chevrolet Centennial Edition Silverado and Centennial Edition Colorado represent 100 years of automotive innovation, and one minute behind the wheel makes it obvious how much has gone into these impressive pickups.

Whether you need a powerful truck for the work site or a versatile weekend warrior, there has never been a better time to get a Chevrolet Truck than now, and you can find plenty of pickups here at Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet in Newton, NC. We would love to help you find the perfect truck for you today!
