Buy it new or buy it used, no matter which option you choose, you need to make sure that you’re facing down this winter knowing that when summer comes, you’re going to be sitting pretty in your Chevy Silverado. Sure, we all know that the Chevy Silverado is a great truck any time of year, but with the next few months promising to be on the dull, dreary and – let’s face it – extremely chilly side, we’re looking ahead to hitting the open road with our windows down, beats turned up and sunglasses on. Because of course, the Silverado can easily tackle the ice and snow, but when you’re ready to take on the heat, fun, and excitement of summer, the Chevy Silverado is the truck you need when the mercury starts rising and the sun starts shining. Don’t believe us? Read on to find out why this winter, you need to check out Chevy dealers so that you can be ready to make it a Chevy Silverado summer.
Space For All Your Summertime Sports
What’s your favorite summertime activity? Is it boating? Biking? Camping? Lounging at the lake or the beach? No matter where you want to go or what you want to do, the Chevy Silverado is the truck to get you there with all of the gear you need to make the most of the balmy summer days. The 2018 Chevy Silverado comes with your choice of three different bed lengths ranging from 5.5 feet, 6.5 feet and maxing out at 8 feet – plenty of room to squeeze in a cooler, a kayak, some beach chairs, a bike… you name it, and there’s a Chevy Silverado bed that can fit it – and with a maximum payload capacity of 2,250 pounds, it can easily haul it, as well.
Of course, that’s not exactly true. There are few things that can’t fit into the bed of a Chevy Silverado, but that’s okay – thanks to the 2018 Chevy Silverado’s maximum towing capacity of 12,500 pounds, you can always just tow your boat, jet skis or camper van right behind you. There’s no limit to the fun that can be had when you can bring all of your favorite equipment along for the ride.
Cool Interiors to Chill Out In
As all Silverado drivers know, there is more to the journey than just the destination, which is why
Chevy has built their trucks interiors to accommodate every level of luxury. Available in a multitude of trims, the Silverado is at its finest when you opt for the High Country trim. Equipped with a seven-speaker Bose audio system, wireless phone charging, a heated steering wheel, a navigation system, four-way power adjustable ventilated front bucket seats and advanced safety features including automatic high-beam control, front and rear parking sensors, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and low-speed emergency braking, the Silverado in High Country offers true interior comfort for when your adventures take you cruising for miles on the open road. Of course, there are also awesome exterior features to be found on the Silverado High Country including a spray-on bed liner, 20-inch chrome wheels to match the chrome side step rails, cargo box-tie downs, and a unique grille face.
If you’re worried that the High Country trim might not be fully equipped to handle your rough-and-tumble summer lifestyle, especially if your summer activities steer more towards kicking up the dust and mud off-the-beaten-path, then you should consider the Chevy Silverado Z71. The Z71 is for adventurous outdoor-enthusiasts, as evidenced by its underbody shields, recovery hooks, 18-inch wheels, heavy-duty air cleaner, hill descent control and special shock absorbers. The Z71 is the truck you need when you say goodbye to civilization and hello to exploring the roads less traveled. Oh, and thanks to the available 6.2-liter V8 engine found in both the High Country and the Z71, should nature prove too overwhelming, you can always hightail it back to the city with a heart-pounding 420 horses galloping out from under the hood.
Serious Safety because “It’s All Fun and Games until…”
We all know how the saying goes, but we’re being serious here: safety matters and nothing is going to put a damper on your summer fun like having an accident or being responsible for someone getting hurt. That’s why it’s so critical that you feel confident putting even the most precious of passengers into your Chevy Silverado – and thanks to the truck’s amazing safety ratings, you certainly can.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the 2018 Chevy Silverado a perfect five-star overall crash test rating and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety backed that up by giving the 2018 Silverado its highest possible rating of Good for the moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraints and seats crash tests. Additionally, the Chevy Silverado is available with a slew of both standard and advanced safety features, including Chevy’s unique Teen Driver system, which should give you peace of mind when your new driver asks if she can borrow the truck to head to the pool with her pals.
You can also rest easy knowing that no matter where you, your truck or your teen heads this summer, the Chevy Silverado is one of the most reliable trucks on the market. According to U.S. News & World Report, “The 2018 Chevrolet Silverado is part of a generation that consistently earns above-average predicted reliability ratings (3.5 out of five or better) from J.D. Power and Associates”. Good news, since no one wants to spend their summer (or their fall, winter or spring for that matter) taking their car to and from the mechanics.
The Chevy Silverado: Perfect for all Seasons
Sure, we may just be heading into the start of winter, but there’s no reason to put a freeze on your quest to find the perfect summertime ride. In fact, why not focus on a vehicle that can get you through all four seasons without compromising on cargo space, interior amenities, safety or reliability? Why not start shopping for your Chevy Silverado now? It may not be summer, but in the end, the Chevy Silverado is the truck you’re going to want to drive 365 days a year, sun, snow, rain or shine.
