Little did they know that the all new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Trailboss would make a special guest appearance, via helicopter.

  • Features of the new Silverado were not officially revealed, although some obvious, physical details were exposed. 
  • Front fenders, which will not be made out of aluminum as they were in the past, dive into its front fascia
  • Its side mirrors have moved from the A-pillars to the door, which will help with visibility and aerodynamics
  • The bed is made out of high-strength steel, which will contribute to better functionality and lighter weight
  • A new change in the wheel opening, which is no longer squared-off

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Trailboss is one of eight models that will be offered in the new Silverado’s first year. More details and features will be revealed at its official, public debut at the North American International Auto Show located in Detroit, which is from January 13-28, 2018.

It’s that time of year again - time to pick out your holiday tree and drag it on home. It’s the same cycle every year: You wake up, drive to the tree farm, cut your tree down, tie it to your car, begin driving, and then…your tree slides off the roof and right onto the road. The last thing you want to do is cause a line of accidents because your holiday tree flew off the roof of your car.

The Chevrolet engineers came together to create helpful tips to successfully secure your holiday tree on top of your vehicle this year. So before you head on out, take a few moments to make sure you’re fully prepared for your annual tree-hunt outing. Follow the tips below to confirm everything's in order this year:

  1. First off, you want to dress warm and bring a pair of gloves, because winter is coming and trees are prickly! 
  2. If you are placing the tree inside your vehicle, you should bring a tarp to place it on. If you are transporting the tree on top of your car, make sure you have cross-rails installed so you don’t damage your car. 
  3. The tree should be tightly bound with netting or rope before securing it on top of the vehicle. 
  4. Place the stump end of the tree toward the front of the vehicle to reduce aerodynamic drag and ensure a safe drive home. 
  5. Your tree should lay directly overtop the cross-rails, loop twine over and around it, and repeat to cinch it with a figure-eight motion to secure it tightly to the vehicle. This will prevent the tree from moving on your drive home.
  6. Try to avoid driving on highways with your tree on top of the vehicle for a safer ride home.

BONUS TIP: Choose a vehicle such as the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse with standard OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility and 120-volt power outlet so you can take the holiday party with wherever you travel!

The Bolt becomes the first and only all-electric vehicle to earn an award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety so far this year. 

Read More

The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt has earned a Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. To qualify for a Top Safety Pick award, vehicles must earn “Good” ratings in all five crash categories as well as an “Advanced” or “Superior” score in front crash prevention. The Bolt did just that, scoring “Good” in the five crash categories, and the highest level, “Superior,” in front crash prevention.

The Bolt has been recognized on numerous occasions and with several awards for its affordable price, excellent range (EPA-estimated range of 238 miles of zero-emission driving per full charge), and top notch technology. This just confirms that you can feel confident that you will be extremely safe while taking advantage of the rest of those attributes. Enjoy your ride!

Visit your Chevy dealer today and take a look at the award winning Chevy Bolt EV.
