Chevrolet recently launched the all-new 2019 Silverado pickup truck in the Middle East, as well as adding two exclusive models just for our region. The new Silverado is not only longer, wider and taller than the outgoing model, it is also lighter thanks to the partial use of aluminium for the first time in its construction.
The all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado is officially debuting in the UAE and GCC today. But the most interesting news to come out of the launch are the two Middle East-exclusive models, namely the Silverado Trail Boss Regular-Cab and the Silverado RST Regular-Cab.
At the ongoing 2018 Detroit Motor Show, Chevrolet removed the covers off the 2019 Silverado, debuting an entirely new generation. The new version of the full-size truck comes with a bunch of new engines and an aluminium-steel mixed construction that slashes 204 kg from its weight.
Chevrolet has revealed the 2016 Silverado facelift. Changes made are mainly to the front end of the full-size pickup, after a lukewarm response to the all-new 2014 model that was overshadowed by the new aluminium-bodied Ford F-150 just a year later.
Positioned as a “lifestyle vehicle” rather than a work-truck, the Chevrolet Silverado has garnered a following in the UAE among a certain subset of the population, more so than all its rivals in the full-size truck segment. There’s a new version in town, launched late last year, and while it may look underwhelming in terms of visual changes, it’s actually better than ever.
Chevrolet has introduced the HD High Country Silverado in the United States. The badge extends all the way to the 1500, 2500 and 3500 series HD models.
Recall for 2013 Chevrolet Tahoe, Silverado, Avalanche, Suburban, GMC Yukon, Sierra & Cadillac Escalade
General Motors is recalling as many as 69,000 of their 2013 full-size SUVs, pickups and vans that could shift out of “Park” by itself and roll away. The recall includes everything based on the GMT900 platform, which includes the Cadillac Escalade; the Chevrolet Avalanche, Express, Silverado, Suburban and Tahoe; and the GMC Savana, Sierra, Yukon and Yukon XL.
Yes, the tug-of-war may be considered a game for the strong and mighty. But it was also a matter of dignity for the Chevrolet Silverado, after its last YouTube battle with the Dodge Ram Heavy Duty, which saw the Silverado being dragged to humiliation. However this time round the big bad Chevy is seen taking on a much smaller Volkswagen Touareg V10 TDI.
Among the motorsports practised by citizens of civilised nations such as America is tug-of-war, a test of strength and resilience. Even better if it’s done with big pointless pickup trucks! Here’s a tug-of-war battle between a Chevrolet Silverado and a Dodge Ram. The outcome is obvious, but winner goes totally overboard! Be warned though, if you’ve never watched an 18+ movie in your life due to your sensitivity to adult language, keep the volume on mute.
