Chevy Silverado 1500 Added to Police Lineup

When summer hits, we all tend to let loose a little. While you’re letting your hair down and doing a little extra traveling, keep an eye out for the newest addition to police vehicles, the Chevy Silverado 1500. Chevy’s full-size truck, equipped with the Special Services Vehicle (SSV) package, has joined the force.

2014 Silverado 1500 “Last year, the Silverado 1500 was awarded for its low cost of ownership, a key purchasing factor for municipalities and government agencies,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president for GM Fleet & Commercial. “The EcoTec3 engine provides the best fuel economy of any V-8 and still gives agencies the power and capability they need from a full-size pickup.”

The SSV truck offers police the same 5.3L engine EcoTec3 V8 with 355 horsepower as the 1500 Crew Cab it is based on. There is also an additional alternator and auxiliary battery to power all the lights and technology necessary for law enforcement officials.

In case you don’t already own a Silverado 1500, you can come in to Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet to check it out for yourself. We’ll be happy to take you for a test drive so you can experience the Silverado’s power firsthand.
