Finding a truck that is both dependable and fuel-efficient is difficult to do—unless you happen to be looking at the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado. Known as one of the most dependable pickup trucks on the market, the Silverado is now even tougher than ever with a trio of new fuel-saving Silverado engines to choose from, each offering more dependability than the next.
“Silverado is from the family of the most dependable, longest lasting full-size pickups on the road,” said John Fitzpatrick, Silverado marketing manager. “Our latest generation of Small Block engines help customers save money at the pump with engines that have been improved and by real-world experience.”
The three Small Block engines also use EcoTec3 technology, making it easier to get top-notch fuel efficiency. A 4.3-liter V6 is the first of the three, offering 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque, while achieving an EPA-rating of 24 mpg highway. For the 5.3-liter V8 engine, the power is boosted to 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque, while achieving 23 mpg highway. Finally, the most powerful engine option is a 6.2-liter V8, which churns out 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, with a respectable 21 mpg highway.
With these engine options for the 2015 Silverado, there’s no reason you shouldn’t ask Santa for this pickup for Christmas. If you’re interested in testing these engines’ power, stop in to Wiesner of Huntsville today!
Everyone knows there are only a few big players in the pickup truck industry, and with numerous years worth of awards behind its belt, it’s undeniable that General Motors (GM) is the one and only, ultimate reigning, official King of Trucks.
Of course, we wouldn’t say this without showing a little more proof behind the name. Recently, GM has earned the crown for most horsepower in a mainstream pickup truck with a 6.2-liter V8 engine, making them the maker of the most powerful light-duty truck engines. This monster engine is available in both the Chevrolet Silverado and the GMC Sierra, both notable big-time players in the pickup industry. The engine pushes out an incredible 420 horsepower with 460 lb-ft. of torque, running right past big competitors like the Dodge Ram and Ford F-150.
If you’re in the market for one of these heavy-duty trucks, expect to go with trims including the LTZ or Denali, but rest assured that your towing capabilities will be out of this world. Get your hands on a bad boy with this engine, and you’ll be riding high with 12,000 pounds of towing capability behind you. Unbeatable.
The University of Texas can be explained by outstanding academics, the orange and white spread of colors, the official Longhorn bull, obviously some good old-fashioned football, and now, the Chevy Silverado. That’s right—the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado has signed on to become the Official Truck of the Texas Longhorns, the Texas Exes, and the Official Truck of Bevo, the Longhorns’ mascot.
The official multi-year sponsorship agreement was signed last week by Chevrolet, the UT Athletics program, and the Ex-Students’ Association of the University of Texas, better known as the Texas Exes. This sealed the deal that the Silverado would become the heart of any and all “truck country” occasions at UT sporting events, and gives the Silverado numerous opportunities to be featured, including pulling Bevo’s trailer to and from events.
UT and Chevrolet are thrilled about their new partnership, and we are too here at Wiesner of Huntsville. The 2014 Chevy Silverado is one of the best-selling trucks in the U.S., and has been engineered and designed to represent everything we love down here in the state of Texas—big tires, big engines, and big towing capability. We can’t wait to see more of the Silverado at those UT football games. Go Longhorns!
