GM Steps up the Silverado; Retains Iconic Stature for the New Vette

The 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 boasts a mix of high-strength steel and aluminum construction used to design a compelling truck with a quiet cabin and a nice ride even with the bed fully loaded, while the all-new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray was the most awarded car last year

The base V6 engine on Chevey's Silverado 1500 provides sufficient power and 18/24 mpg, and there’s the 5.3-liter V8 if you need more power with quicker acceleration.  Either of these come with 6-speed automatic transmission. A larger 6.2-liter V8 with 8-speed automatic is also available, and with it, the Silverado can achieve its 12,000-pound maximum tow rating.  The Chevy trucks are also loaded with conveniences and options including the intuitive MyLink voice command system with text messaging alerts and Siri Eyes Free complemented by available OnStar with 4G LTE and standard built-in Wi-Fi hotspot mobile hub for drivers and passengers to stay connected 10 times faster than 3G and 100 times faster than the previous generation of OnStar hardware.  Pricing starts just north of $29K up to the $58K range for the top of the line High Country that we recently tested.

The all-new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray was the most awarded car last year.  New for 2015 is an all-new eight-speed automatic transmission, performance Data Recorder, OnStar with 4G LTE and two new design packages.  The valet will leave it in front alongside the Lamborghinis and you’ll have the last laugh with pricing starting in the $50K range. Even with all the options you’ll want, it can still be had for around $70K.  17 mpg city and 29 mpg highway is great for a true sports car. With 455 hp and lightweight materials it also stands its ground against much higher priced European roadsters.
