From the first generation of Chevrolet Silverados in 1999, the iconic brand continues to evolve and offer additional choices for savvy truck buyers. The third generation of trucks launched in 2014 and continuing through the 2018 model year provides even greater efficiency and power, while cabs continue to expand to offer additional space for comfort and improved responsiveness. However, it’s the new edition launching late in 2018 that has the industry abuzz: this new offering is set to be the largest Chevy Silverado ever manufactured for the medium-duty truck segment.
Silverado Through the Years
One of the best-selling trucks of all time, the Chevrolet Baltimore Silverado trucks offered buyers from 1999 – 2006 the ability to customize their trim options for capability and comfort, with a high-performance engine and QuadStar four-wheel steering. The middle generation launched in 2007 and continued through the 2013 model year, and was distinguished by larger engines from 4.8L to 6.2L, Bluetooth connectivity, advanced airbag systems and even comfort adds such as remote start and interior design upgrades. The most recent generation is represented by 2014 – 2018, and provides improved steering, suspension and amenities such as EcoTec3 engines for enhanced reaction times.
Supporting How Customers Work
Highly maneuverable bodies were only one of the many requirements for the upcoming new models of Chevrolet in Baltimore. The 4500 and 5500 models provide customers with the ultimate flexibility to customize their vehicle for work, allowing easy upfitting of specialized bodies. Crew cab and regular cab options are available and the 4×4 drivetrains can deliver the upwards of 910 lb-ft of torque and massive 445 horsepower needed for heavy duty applications.
All this focus on hard work doesn’t mean that luxury has been ignored — quite the contrary — as multiple cab styles, configurations and trims embody rugged convenience and good looks. Chevrolet Baltimore dealers offer a wide range of special editions including:
- Black Out
- Special Ops
- All Star
- Rally and more
Heated front bucket seats and leather-wrapped steering wheel are a few of the creature comforts you’ll find in the High Country and LTZ trim packages, and the Teen Driver feature comes standard to help families stay safe on the road.
Updated Silverado series provide all the safety features you would expect in a mid-size truck family, including safety alert driver seat, forward collision warnings, automatic braking and IntelliBeam headlamps that automatically control the beam. Minimize bumps and keep your truck looking new with front and rear park assist standard on several models and trims packages. One thing is clear, Chevrolet is serious about safety and providing customers with the large new truck options they need to get the job done.
