Chevy Silverado – One in a Rich History of Pickup Trucks

April 18, 2013

Chevrolet has leaped tall buildings and jumped many hurdles since its inception of the pickup truck. In the midst of World War I, the 1918 Chevrolet 490 Half-ton light delivery truck was born. Complete with “cowl chassis” this puppy was available with two 4-cylinder engines for only $595! Later that year, its successor, the one-ton Model T, could pump out a whopping 37-horsepower and get up to 25mph – all for just $1,125! To find out more about the history of Chevy trucks, visit your friends at Jessup Auto Plaza.

ImageThere have been dramatic improvements since the creation of the Chevy pickup. Its legacy has since become a part of our American heritage, from farming to hauling construction tools, to residing in the suburbs. The 2013 Chevrolet Silverado is one such example of the excellence of the Chevy brand.

The latest model of the Chevy Silverado commands authority from its very heart. With its Vortec 5.3 liter V8 engine with 315 horsepower, and its ability to operate on E85 (non-hybrid models), makes it one of the more fuel efficient pickup trucks on the market today. Promoting 417 max torque capacity along with its max payload of 1,940lbs, this is one machine you can be confident can handle any job you set before it.

Despite its workhorse exterior and capacity, the Silverado’s interior will make any country boy feel like he’s in heaven. Features available for select models are:

  • Heated and Cooled Seats
  • Vehicle diagnostics via OnStar
  • Rear-vision camera
  • SiriusXM Satellite Radio capabilities
  • Turn-by-Turn Navigation offered by OnStar
  • Bluetooth connectivity for all of your devices, including your cell phone and MP3 player
  • Chevy Mobile Hotspot – you can take your own internet with you!
  • StabiliTrak Electronic Stability Control System

As you see, the 2013 Chevrolet Silverado is tough and techy and able to handle any job you have. Come on down to Cathedral City’s Jessup Auto Plaza and see how you can drive one off the lot today!
