Chevrolet Silverado High Desert

2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500The 2017 Chevrolet Silverado offers drivers the capability they need to complete any task, no matter how tough. This incredible pickup has earned several major awards for its versatility and now a new package looks to add more to the shelf. The Chevrolet Silverado High Desert brings drivers even more flexibility in their daily lives.

The High Desert package is available on the Silverado 1500 LT, LTZ, and High Country trims. The package adds an all-new water-resistant, lockable cargo system, as well as an available Magnetic Ride Control suspension system.

The new storage system is located over the bed and includes dual side storage bins and a three-piece hard tonneau cover. Drivers can separate their cargo with an interior divider or lower it to access the full length of the bed.

The LT trim adds 20-inch wheels with all-season tires when equipped with the High Desert package. The LTZ and High Country trims offer 22-inch wheels and all-terrain tires.

The High Desert package marks the first time the Silverado pickup has been available with Magnetic Ride Control. The advanced suspension system is capable of reading the road up to 1,000 times per second and adjusting the suspension accordingly.

We here at Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet can’t help but be impressed by the inspiring and practical High Desert package!

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.
