Best Uses for Your Silverado 1500 in the Fall

Silverado 1500 Fall - Terry, MS

While summer is a great time to use your Silverado 1500 to take the boat to the lake or haul some wood for your next DIY project, fall offers plenty of opportunities for you to use your pickup to its fullest.

Join a Parade

Second only to convertibles, trucks are the most popular vehicle for parades. While a convertible can carry around the grand marshal, only a pickup can support a parade float or host an entire club or organization. If your child’s school has a homecoming parade, volunteer your truck.

Have a Tailgate Party

Tailgate parties are at their best in the fall, and it doesn’t hurt that they’re named after one of your truck’s most distinctive features. If there is a sports team you love and support, host your own party. Pickups are ideal for tailgating thanks to their easily loaded and accessed beds. The 2019 Silverado will take your tailgate party to the next level with its class-leading cargo room and 12 standard tie-downs.

Go Camping

Camping in the fall is cool and comfortable, except when it comes to finding a patch of ground that doesn’t feel like a budding mountain range. Equip your Silverado with a tent that attaches to the bed, and you will never wake up with a rock in your back again.

The end of summer doesn’t need to mean the end of outdoor fun with your Silverado 1500. Between public gatherings, sporting events, and outdoor excursions, there’s no better time to make full use of your pickup’s versatility. If you’re looking for any certified accessories or need routine maintenance, head over to Skinners Chevrolet Buick GMC and prepare your truck for a season of fun.

Updates for the 2020 Silverado

2020 Silverado - Terry, MS

The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 may have just been completely redesigned for the 2019 model year, but it will still get its fair share of new features for next year as well. Here are some of the updates for the 2020 Silverado that we are excited to see.

 

Better Availability of Powertrain Options

 

Next year, the impressive 6.2-liter V8 engine with the 10-speed automatic transmission will be more widely available across the Silverado 1500 lineup. This 420-horsepower engine will be available on more than half of the Silverado trims with new availability on the Custom Trail Boss and LT Trail Boss models.

 

Diesel Engine Available

 

Originally planned to arrive late in the 2019 model year, the 3.0-liter Duramax® turbo-diesel engine will finally be available for the whole 2020 model year. It will be available on the LT, RST, LTZ, and High Country models. Chevrolet announced that it will have an output of 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque.

 

More Technology Options

 

Another new addition for the 2020 model year will be the availability of the advanced towing camera system from the Silverado HD model. This system comes with 15 camera views including the innovative transparent trailer view, which uses a camera mounted on the back of the trailer so you can see what is coming up behind you.

 

When we get the 2020 Silverado on our lot at Skinners Chevrolet Buick GMC, you’ll definitely know about it. Stay tuned for more details and updates on this exciting truck.
