Chevrolet supercharges the Silverado with the Silverado Performance concept

  Chevrolet supercharges the Silverado with the Silverado Performance concept It's just a concept for now.The best part of the truck is under the hood. Here, the smallest 5.3-liter V8 is thoroughly heated up with an intercooled supercharger based on the unit used on the LT4 engine in the Corvette Z06 and Camaro ZL1. Chevrolet claims it adds over 100 horsepower, which means the 5.3's standard 355 horsepower would jump to at least 455. That would also mean it makes 35 more horsepower than the available 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V8. That does present the question of why GM wouldn't have simply supercharged the 6.2-liter, but we applaud the company for considering the potential of more than just the top-spec powertrains.

Chevrolet’s very first pickup truck was bound to appeal to the do-it-yourself crowd and future Ikea shoppers. The half-ton 490 Light Delivery chassis-cowl was actually a Chevy 490 automobile with beefed-up rear springs – but missing most of its body.

Introduced in 1918, it used the car’s chassis, engine, transmission and the front sheet metal, but customers were expected to provide their own cab and body. Some purchased bodies from an independent supplier, such as Detroit’s Fisher Body, while others went to the lumberyard to finish their truck in wood.

It features a vertical divider in the middle, which is home to a massive Chevrolet emblem. Further down, the bumper accommodates new fog lamps and what appears to be an additional air intake at the bottom.

You’d expect a half-finished vehicle to be inexpensive, and at $595 it was, although the fully completed 490 automobile was even cheaper at $490, undercutting Ford’s wildly popular Model T by $5.

Chevrolet is marking 100 years since its first simple, utilitarian truck was produced by the nascent manufacturer in Flint, Michigan. Today’s half-ton Chevrolet Silverado is a heckuva lot more expensive truck compared to the 490, but at least it comes fully assembled. And it’s impervious to termites.

CONFIGURATION

Chevrolet’s light-duty pickup is in its 12th generation (give or take) since inception – demonstrating that trucks don’t follow the auto industry convention of undergoing a redesign every four or five years. The current Silverado was introduced in May 2013 as a 2014 model and rides on the new GMT K2 chassis, using a fully boxed frame composed of hydroformed high-strength steel.

Beyond Aluminum: 2019 GM Pickups May Tackle the Carbon-Fiber Frontier

  Beyond Aluminum: 2019 GM Pickups May Tackle the Carbon-Fiber Frontier GM is reportedly planning to use plastic for its pickup beds.In all fairness, it’s not the kind of plastic that the word brings to mind. The beds would be made of carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP), commonly just called carbon fiber. And the promise is that this would make the beds far stronger than steel or aluminum while weighing less.

While rival Ford leapt ahead and created an entire body of weight-saving aluminum for its F-150 truck, Chevrolet limited aluminum to the hood, engine block and control arms. The Silverado’s bed is made of roll-formed steel instead of stamped steel in order to gain strength and trim mass. The diet worked: The Silverado (and GMC’s Sierra twin) is barely heavier than Ford’s headline-grabbing aluminum truck.

The extensive engineering work paid dividends under the skin, but buyers saw little to distinguish the new Silverado from the outgoing truck. Designers bolstered the fender flares, enlarged the grille, added projector-beam headlights, and generally beefed up their truck to look more, well, trucky.

While it looked the part, the engineering goal was to make it ride like a Cadillac. The power-steering rack is electrically assisted, the revised suspension is tuned for smoothness, and the wheels are a half-inch wider for better stability and handling. The doors are inset into the body instead of wrapping around to meet the roof, reducing road and wind noise, as do the triple door seals.

Chevy Dealer Keeping the Classic Pickup Look Alive With This Cheyenne Super 10 Build

  Chevy Dealer Keeping the Classic Pickup Look Alive With This Cheyenne Super 10 Build One of the cleanest retro rigs we've ever seen.It seems we're plunging into something of a retro pickup truck craze, and frankly, we couldn't be happier. A few months ago, word spread that a dealership in Georgia was converting stripper F-150s into modern-day Ford SVT Lightnings with 650 horsepower. In November, GMC pulled the wraps off their disco-era Desert Fox concept. And now, a small Chevrolet dealer in Minnesota has resurrected the two-tone paint job, white steel wheels, and square body styling of the Cheyenne trim from the Seventies on a brand-new 2017 Chevy Silverado LT—and the result is just about perfect.

Inside, occupants are greeted with big comfy seats and a new dashboard that features an optional large touchscreen front and centre to access the MyLink interface. A traditional column shifter frees up space on the console. An available Driver Alert package bundles lane departure warning, forward collision alert, safety alert seat, and front and rear parking sensors. Overall, the materials and build quality are notably better, especially in the lower trim lines.

“While the sheetmetal is only a tad different than the 2013, the interior is a quantum leap forward and the powerplant’s truly advanced. I’ve heard the term ‘Cowboy Cadillac’ before, now I know what it means,” wrote a new owner online.

Body styles include a regular two-door cab, an extended double cab with four doors, and a full-size crew cab. Three box lengths are available: 5 feet, 8 inches; 6 feet, 6 inches; and 8 feet. The tailgate boasts an internal torsion bar and rotary damper to make raising and lowering smooth and easy. There’s a built-in step (“CornerStep”) in each corner of the rear bumper to ease access to the bed – an elegantly simple solution.

With a new emphasis on fuel efficiency, Chevrolet introduced a competitive 4.3-L V6 that makes 285 horsepower and 305 pound-feet of torque, and can tow up to 7,200 pounds when properly equipped. Along with the 355-hp 5.3-L small-block V8 and the 420-hp 6.2-L V8, all three “EcoTec3” engines utilize an aluminum block and heads, direct fuel injection and cylinder deactivation. The deactivation system cuts fuel and spark to four of the cylinders on the V8s, and shuts down two cylinders on the V6 under light load.

Rear-wheel drive was standard and 4×4 off-road capacity was optional. All the engines came with GM’s six-speed automatic transmission standard. A new eight-speed automatic was introduced for 2015, but paired only with the 6.2-L V8.

For 2016 all models received updated front-end styling, while inside, two available touchscreens provide quicker response times and gain Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. The eight-speed automatic transmission migrated to the 5.3-L V8 on upper trim levels.

DRIVING THE SILVERADO

The V6-powered Silverado offers decent power for an entry-level pickup, taking 7.7 seconds to reach 97 km/h. The engine is said to be refined, although testers have noted that it runs coarser than the Ram’s Pentastar 3.6-L V6. The popular 5.3-L V8 can haul a 4×4 crew cab to highway velocity in 6.7 seconds, while the big 6.2 can do the deed in a sports-sedan-like 5.7 seconds.

GM To Move Current Truck Production To Oshawa

  GM To Move Current Truck Production To Oshawa General Motors has announced it is shifting production of its current full-size pickups to Oshawa while it tools up its Michigan and Indiana plants to build next-generation versions of the popular trucks. Automotive News reports that GM will ship partly-assembled versions of the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado and 2018 GMC Sierra trucks from Fort Wayne, Indiana, where 500 newly hired workers will finish building and paint them. It's good news for an Oshawa factory whose future was in doubt. According to GM Canada, it currently builds the Cadillac XTS and Chevrolet Equinox. The manufacturer recently refocused Equinox production to Mexico and the full-size XTS sedan competes in a category losing steam in the face of the growing popularity of upscale SUVs and crossovers. This wouldn't be the first time GM has built two generations of one model at the same time. It did so most recently when the recently redesigned Equinox launched, and sent outgoing-generation models to Ingersoll for finishing touches. And Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will build its current 2018 Ram 1500 alongside a brand new version when the redesigned truck debuts next year. GM expects to the Oshawa plant to turn out about 60,000 trucks a year, but the company hasn't committed to a fixed timeline for Oshawa truck production. Spokesperson Jennifer Wright told Automotive News that "the length of the program in Oshawa will be dependent on market demand.

While the Silverado’s ride is stiffer than the Ram’s and the Ford’s, the steering is more responsive with better feedback. There’s a direct, engaging feel to how the Silverado drives, leading a few to suggest that there’s some Camaro DNA lurking inside. The Silverado seems to drive like a smaller vehicle, and it’s not entirely an illusion as the truck is 5 cm lower than its competitors.

Every manufacturer claims great fuel efficiency numbers, but the reality is trucks come in so many permutations that it’s not easy to make the published figures. However, Silverado owners have lauded Chevrolet for making fuel-efficiency gains, largely thanks to cylinder deactivation technology and tall gear ratios.

OWNERS TALK RELIABILITY

Chevrolet and GMC have a very competitive product in their most recent truck generation with its smartly engineered platform, three strong engines and good design inside and out. GM has so far resisted adopting fussy turbochargers, as well as betting the farm on aluminum bodies. Consumers gravitate to the steadfast GM twins because they’re familiar and proven.

Still, every new vehicle generation presents the prospect of new hiccups and setbacks, and the Silverado is no different. Almost immediately, buyers of the all-new 2014 models noticed some issues, including an annoyance referred to as the “Chevy shake.”

“Silverado LT two-wheel-drive crew cab is a nice truck, but on the highway it shakes terribly between 70-78 mph. I have had the tires rotated and road-force balanced twice and it has not helped,” reads a common online complaint.

Chevy Silverado 1500 Diesel Engine Will Be Built in Michigan

  Chevy Silverado 1500 Diesel Engine Will Be Built in Michigan Production of the new Duramax engine could begin as soon as this year.Chevrolet confirmed during the Detroit Auto Show that the all-new 2019 Silverado 1500 pickup truck will be available with a diesel engine, something we haven’t seen in a full-size Chevy pickup since the mid-1990s when it was still called the C/K. While we’re still waiting on specifications such as horsepower, torque, and mpg ratings, the one detail we do know is where the new engine will be built: Michigan.

Dealers can use a device known as a PicoScope to detect vibrations and frequencies in the chassis. Sometimes the vibration can be isolated to the wheels and tires, but replacing them doesn’t always resolve the problem.

A GM technical service bulletin recommends re-tightening the body mounts, correcting pitchline runout and driveline angles, inspecting the ring and pinion gears for issues, and more. The driveshaft frequently comes under scrutiny.

“I saw my driveshaft cartwheeling about 8 feet. It turns out that the knuckle on the rear of the shaft had snapped, violently vibrated and the shaft dropped, ripped apart about a foot behind the transmission and came out from under the truck,” one owner posted online.

The current thinking is that the driveshaft has to be trued and balanced to eliminate the shakes, which can be done in a performance shop. Some dealers have told customers that there’s an “acceptable” level of vibration that all trucks exhibit. Not so.

Other issues reported in the Silverado (and Sierra) include: shifting driver’s seat, short-lived air conditioning condenser, poor-shifting transmission, oil consumption, peeling paint and early rust. The electric power-steering unit can spontaneously fail at speed, which renders the steering wheel very stiff, but functional.

Overall, the Chevrolet Silverado is a good, serviceable truck. It’s prone to mechanical issues, but then so are Fords, Rams and Toyotas. It’s wise to take a prospective used Chevy truck on a long highway test drive to ensure it’s no “Shakerado.” If it passes, it’s likely a keeper.
