Keep On Truckin’ – The 2017 Chevrolet Silverado


The latest generation of Silverado debuted in 2014 and set the automotive world ablaze with praise for GM’s continued devotion to refining their particular brand of style, safety, performance, and technological advancements. Three years later, the Silverado is still topping the sales charts with new additions from fresh colors to technological upgrades and with the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, your choices are greater than ever before.

As usual, the trim levels range from powerful work truck (WT) to the top-shelf beast-mode of the High Country. The starting line for the Silverado’s powertrain is anything but “basic”. The reliably potent 4.3L engine still impresses with its 285 horse-powered V-6 workhorse. Additional technology and upgraded cosmetics evolve with each trim level increase.

Want 20″ aluminum wheels? The ‘Silverado Custom’ is your baby. Looking for satellite radio, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and standards like Teen Driver mode and a rearview camera? May want to give the LT models a spin.

But if you’re looking for more muscle, don’t worry. Chevy’s got you covered with their LZ and High Country models. You’ll be the king of the road with your 5.3L V8 355 horse-powered 1LZ. Toss in a 6-speed automatic transmission and all the modern technological conveniences and your kingdom will be expanding every time you put it in “drive”.

Still not enough? Then you’re ready for the High Country. An 8-speed transmission and rear-wheel drive replaces the 1LZ’s front wheel (and the 2LZ’s 4-wheel) drive type along with adding 20″ chrome aluminum wheels and the best tech on the market today. All the stops have been pulled with standard interior equipment like power-adjustable pedals and a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, and that’s just for starters.

Even the safety features get the state-of-the-art treatment by adding features like an ultrasonic parking assist system, forward-collision alerts, lane-keeping assistance, automatic high beams, and much more. So, no matter what you’re looking for, the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has it in an incredible array of trim levels and in an indescribable kaleidoscope of exterior and interior colors.

Raising The Bar: GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate


When the “Denali” trim line was first introduced in the 1999 model year, few could have predicted the runaway success the nameplate would have over the following decade.  The Denali was an upgrade from the standard model designs in every sense of the word. From exterior improvements like 16″ DICKIE polished aluminum wheels and upgraded front fascia and side body panels to a cabin filled with top-of-the-line materials and tech that would make NASA engineers jealous, the Denali made an immediate and permanent mark on the automotive industry.
