All-New Power for the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado

 

2019 Chevrolet Silverado

 

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado is here to show off its impressive power. While the Silverado has always offered ample power options, the added options this model year make the 2019 Silverado the best one yet.

This 2019 Silverado boasts eight different trim levels for every need, as well as six different engine and transmission combinations. Each different engine focuses on what you prioritize – efficiency, power, or both.

Its all-new setup starts with the advanced 2.7-liter Turbo engine. This new engine will be standard on both the Silverado LT and the new Silverado RST trims. It replaces the previous 4.3-liter V6 engine, and beats it out by producing 22 percent more torque as well as improved efficiency.

Another engine addition to the 2019 Silverado is the Duramax 3.0-liter turbo diesel engine, which pairs with a 10-speed automatic transmission for ultimate on-road performance. It also comes with engine stop/start technology to improve efficiency even further.  It will be available in trucks in early 2019.

Updated engines include the 5.3-liter V8 and 6.2-liter V8 engines. The 5.3-liter engine delivers an impressive 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque while the 6.2-liter engine boasts 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque. Both have Dynamic Fuel Management, which makes them some of the most advanced V8 engines on the market.

Best Backyard Barbecue Recipes

Backyard barbecue

 

Summer is officially in session and you know what that means – cookouts! When you’re not taking a road trip in your Chevy, head out to the backyard and whip up these delicious dishes.

Curried Pork & Orange Kabobs

If you want to do something a little different, these kabob sticks are unique and fun to eat. They check off the “meat” box with the pork, and add some yellow, red, and orange peppers into the mix for extra flavor.

Can-Can Chicken

This chicken is delicious and easy to grille. You pre-make the seasoning (which includes paprika, garlic powder, and ground mustard) and spread it over boiler chicken, then throw it on the grill until it’s done.

Corn with Cilantro-Lime Butter

This dish is perfect for the vegetarians at the barbecue – and it’s delicious for anyone! The butter is created with lime juice and fresh cilantro, then spread liberally over grilled corn-on-the-cob.

Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus

Meat and veggies all in one dish! Grilled asparagus is delicious on its own – but add a bacon wrap around it and it’s irresistible. This works by wrapping the bacon around the asparagus prior to grilling it, that way the bacon stays wrapped while it cooks.

Barbecued Beef Brisket

Brisket is a popular Southern dish, but it doesn’t mean it can’t be made in the north! This recipe yields about 2 pounds of beef brisket, and is slathered in brown sugar, ketchup, mustard, and horseradish for ultimate flavor.

If you need help finding the perfect ride for transporting these dishes to your next summer party, come see us at H&H Chevrolet.

Why Small Cars are a Smart Buy

Why Small Cars are a Smart Buy

While crossovers and SUVs are gaining popularity in America, Europe is still obsessed with compact cars. When you look at the benefits of small cars, they have good reason. If you can let go of a need for massive towing power and maximum space, these upsides to small cars might win you over.

 

Fuel Efficient

If you want to save the most at the gas tank, a small car is the way to go. A 2018 Chevrolet Cruze can offer a whopping 52 mpg highway* with its available turbo-diesel engine. You won’t find that kind of mileage in a crossover or SUV.

 

Affordable

Not only can a small car save you money at the gas tank, but it can save you money at the initial purchase as well. Small cars are often the most affordable of a manufacturer’s lineup, making them great choices for young drivers or any shopper on a budget.

 

Fun to Drive

With modern, peppy engines entering the compact car segment, and small, nimble designs, small cars are generally lots of fun to drive. They can take swift turns and fit into tight parking spaces with ease. If you’ve been used to driving an SUV or even a large car, you may be pleasantly surprised by the difference in feel.

If you want to learn more about what cars like the 2018 Chevy Cruze can do for you, contact us at H&H Chevrolet.

New Design Details

2018’s Chevrolet Cruze has a sporty design with sweeping, aerodynamic lines and bold details on the front and rear ends of both Sedan and Hatchback models. The 2019 Chevrolet Cruze will take its premium feel to the next level with an updated grille design that will set a stunning first impression. It will also be offered with new wheel selections, and the Premium trim will come with LED taillight accenting.

 

New Standard Technology

Every trim of the 2019 Chevrolet Cruze will be equipped with a new version of the Chevrolet infotainment system, called Chevrolet Infotainment 3. The versatile system will connect passengers will a wide range of entertainment and tools for driving. It will come in a standard 7-inch color touchscreen and encourage drivers to keep their eyes on the road while still connecting them to navigation and music.

 

Updates to Specific Trims

The LT and Premium trims receive their own new standard amenities as well. Each one will be equipped with a remote engine starter as well as automatic climate control.

Take Chevy’s Road Trip Across All Contiguous 48 States

Take Chevy’s Road Trip Across All Contiguous 48 States

Chevy’s Road Trip Coming To You

Have you dreamed of seeing the entire country by car? Now’s your chance with Chevy’s road trip, designed in conjunction with data scientist Randy Olson. The trip takes you through all 48 contiguous United States (you’ll have to get to Alaska and Hawaii some other time) with an exciting stop in each state, including theme parks, national parks, and famous landmarks.

All Across America

The trip covers 13,389 miles of American roadways and would take roughly 214.56 hours—that’s nine days—of pure driving. But since you will probably want to stop to eat, sleep, and use the rest room (and fill up at the gas station and get some oil changes), the trip will likely take you much longer. In fact, with each of the 48 planned stops and your own detours to see family, friends, and travel destinations you’ve always dreamed of, you should probably plan for at least a month on the road.

Shared Memories With The Family

“Road trips are about creating shared memories and quality time with family and friends,” remarked Steve Majoros, director of marketing, Chevrolet Cars and Crossovers. “And when on the road, travelers can trust Chevrolet vehicles to help get them where they’re going reliably. Chevy is now the only brand to earn J.D. Power Dependability Awards for cars, trucks and SUVs three years in a row.”

Whether you plan to tackle all of Chevy’s road trip or just a portion near us in Pennsylvania, make sure to get your routine maintenance done first at H&H Chevrolet in Shippensburg, PA.

Bolt production

Chevy Will Increase Bolt Production to Launch US Into EV Future

Bolt production

Charge At Your Home

Bolt Production For The World

It is no secret that our current method of powering vehicles is not sustainable: Gasoline is a limited resource, and it pollutes our environment every time we use it. Automakers have heavily been investing in alternative fuel source research in the last several decades, leading to innovative vehicles like Chevy’s Malibu Hybrid, Volt plug-in hybrid, and Bolt EV.

No More Gasoline

As part of its commitment toward a future where we don’t rely on gas-powered vehicles, Chevrolet will be upping Chevrolet Bolt production at its Orion Assembly plant near Detroit. This comes from Mary Barra, GM CEO and a major proponent of electric vehicles. Barra did not state how much of a production increase the plant would see, but she did indicate that this would create jobs in Detroit.

Adopting Electric Vehicles

“I think it’s [adoption of electric vehicles] going to happen more quickly than decades. As more and more people recognize that we have the right range, understand that we have a charging infrastructure so they don’t think you’re going to be stranded, I think you’re going to see EV adoption continue,” Barra told CNBC in an interview.

Charge Stations Coming Your Way

General Motors will also be working with those in the energy industry and other key stakeholders to develop a wider network of EV charging stations here in the United States. If you want to get a head start on the future, come talk to us at H&H Chevrolet in Shippensburg, PA about the Chevrolet Bolt and how you can drive one home.

Resale Value Awards

2018 KBB Resale Value Awards Put Chevy Trucks At Top of the List

Resale Value Awards

Kelley Blue Book is one of the most well-respected organizations in the world when it comes to cars. The company has long provided reliable reviews for vehicles in addition to the industry standard in value. KBB’s Resale Value Awards rank and recognize vehicles based on how well they hold their resale value, and the 2018 awards put Chevrolet’s lineup of capable and reliable trucks at the top of the list.

Both the Chevrolet Silverado HD and the Chevrolet Tahoe won the 2018 Best Resale Value Awards in their respective categories – Full-Size Pickup Truck and Full-Size SUV/Crossover. Meanwhile, the 2018 Colorado and Silverado 1500 ranked highly on the KBB.com Top 10 Best Resale Value List.

In January, Chevrolet debuted the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, kicking off a brand-new generation for the reputable nameplate and celebrating 100 years of excellence in the auto industry.

All Chevrolet trucks are crafted with a century’s worth of engineering and design expertise. Durability is prioritized during the design process, which is why Chevy truck models are still crafted using fully boxed frames and high-strength steel. This commitment to reliability earned Chevrolet’s trucks top spots in the 2018 Kelley Blue Book Resale Value Awards.
