Last week was a big one for the Chevrolet Silverado. On Tuesday Chevy announced that the 2020 Silverado HD would debut in February of 2019, and just two days later it showed off the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD High Country, one of five distinct models.
Silverado HD Redesign
With the redesign of the 2020 Silverado HD, Chevy has worked to make the HD models stand apart from the light-duty Silverado 1500, since they’re made for different drivers with different needs. The 2020 HD models will feature state-of-the-art trailering technology and the most powerful towing and hauling ever seen on the Silverado.
More Advanced Than Ever
The 2020 Silverado HD is more advanced than ever, and it’s gotten a makeover to match, with rugged styling and modern touches that give it a perfect balance of premium comfort and capable performance. The 2020 HD only has its roof in common with the Silverado 1500—everything else is exclusive to the Silverado HD line.
The 2020 Silverado HD is unique in its offering of five distinct models for totally different kinds of customers, including the recently announced High Country, along with Work Truck, Custom, LT, and LTZ. The High Country trim sports exclusive color combinations and technologies that make the Silverado HD into a luxury car as well as a powerful utility vehicle.

2019 Chevrolet Silverado Engine Technology
The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado has been completely redesigned. It will offer bold new styling, more premium features, and next-generation engine technology. This will include advanced V8 gasoline engines including the proven 5.3-liter and the 6.2-liter, both with Dynamic Fuel Management.
Dynamic Fuel Management
“Chevrolet first introduced its Active Fuel Management cylinder deactivation system in 2005, and Dynamic Fuel Management is a natural progression of the technology,” said Jordan Lee, Small Block chief engineer. “Dynamic Fuel Management enables only the cylinders needed to deliver the power you want, seamlessly delivering the best balance of power and fuel economy.”
Active Fuel Management allowed an engine to switch between eight- and four-cylinder operation as needed. Dynamic Fuel Management, on the other hand, features 17 cylinder patterns. This helps maximize fuel efficiency and power use.
2018 Silverado Comparison
Compared to a 2018 Silverado with Active Fuel Management, a 2019 Silverado with Dynamic Fuel Management operates fewer than eight cylinders 9% more often.
The 5.3-liter V8 is rated at 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. It is paired with a Hydra-Matic eight-speed automatic transmission. For even more power, the 6.2-liter V8 offers 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. It comes with a Hydra-Matic 10-speed automatic transmission. Both engines also come equipped with driver-selectable stop/start technology.
We’re so excited about the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado. Come talk to us at H&H Chevrolet to learn more about its special features.
With the release of the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, we are entering a new generation of truck, not just in style, but more importantly, in technology. The 2019 Silverado’s technology will make trailing and hauling easier, safer, and more intuitive, especially with the available Advanced Trailer System.
Advanced Trailer System
The Advanced Trailer System (ATS) will come standard on LTZ and High Country trims and will be optional on the LT, RST, and Trail Boss models. ATS will offer a variety of innovative features. For starters, it has hitch guidance with a hitch view built in to the backup camera. This will make lining up your hitch with the trailer so much easier.
Once you have the hitch lined up, the auto parking brake assist will activate so your Silverado does not roll slightly out of alignment when you put it in park. This turns on automatically while using the hitch view.
Tire Pressure Monitor
Another great feature is the trailer tire pressure monitor. Once some special equipment is installed on your trailer, you will be able to easily check the pressure and temperature of all the tires on your trailer. Just like with your truck, which tells you when the tire pressure is low, your trailer can do the same thing.

The 2019 Silverado 1500 design comes with more cargo room than ever before thanks to the especially large bed. The Silverado has the most functional bed of any truck on the market, offering lots of space and several features to improve versatility. If you’re looking for a truly capable truck, check out the new Silverado 1500.
According to Chevrolet, the 2019 Silverado has up to 89 cu ft of space with the Long Box configuration, which is 14 cu ft more than the 2018 model year. The Short Box and Standard Box configurations are also considerably larger, allowing you to store a wider range of cargo. Plus, the high-strength steel design can withstand 500 MPa, which is significantly more than trucks like the F-Series or Ram 1500.
“The bed is the heart and soul of any pickup, so we made several improvements to the bed of the all-new Silverado to give our customers an even better hauling experience,” said Tim Herrick, executive chief engineer, Full-Size Trucks, General Motors. “We’ve added so many features and benefits that it deserves its own name – Durabed.”
In addition to more space, the Silverado 1500 has added features like 12 fixed tie-downs that can hold 500 pounds of pressure before bending. Available in-bed LED lighting provides visibility so you can work at night, and an optional 110/120-volt outlet provides a convenient power source.

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.

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.
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.
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.
*EPA-estimated MPG highway for Cruze Diesel Sedan with 1.6L 4-cylinder Turbo-Diesel engine and manual transmission. EPA-estimated 47 MPG highway for Cruze Diesel Sedan with automatic transmission.
Nimble, versatile, stylish, available with a turbo-diesel engine—what could be better about the Chevrolet Cruze? Turns out our favorite manufacturer did it again. These recently announced updates promise that the 2019 Chevrolet Cruze will be beyond impressive.
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.

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.
