4 New Chevrolet Silverado HD Special Edition Trucks Are on the Way

If you like the Chevrolet Silverado HD, you’ll love its special edition versions. Recently, Chevrolet introduced four new special edition Silverado HD trucks that look great and can help make work easier. Here’s a look at each of them.

Carhartt Special Edition

This Carhartt Special Edition combines two things you love: a Silverado truck with Carhartt work attire. This truck takes the HD Z71 truck and adds Carhartt Gold pinstriping to the exterior along with a black skid plate. Inside, the truck comes with special seat panels and stitching topped by Carhartt-embroidered headrests.

Sport Edition

The Sport Edition model adds style with black grille inserts, black exterior badging, a black skid plate, black hood vent surround, and four-inch assist steps. The sleek look is completed with 18-inch black alloy wheels.

Midnight Edition

The Midnight Edition is similar to the Sport Edition, but it adds mud-terrain tires.

Chrome Sport Edition

This special edition comes with chrome grille accents, a body-color grille bar, 20-inch machined or polished alloy wheels, a chrome skid plate, body-color bumpers, and stylish blackwall tires.

Stay Up-to-Date on Chevrolet’s 2021 Lineup Changes

Changes are coming to the Chevrolet lineup, and we want to fill you in on the details.  Here’s a quick rundown of the news on which models are on schedule, which have been delayed, and what redesigns are in store.

Fresh SUVs, but in limited numbers

The 2021 Chevrolet Colorado, Trailblazer, Suburban, and Tahoe are coming later this year.

  • The Colorado will receive updated exterior queues, with the ZR2 trim particularly benefiting from an exciting, rugged look.
  • The Trailblazer, returning to the North American market after a decade of retirement, provides a new small SUV option for customers. It has plenty in store that you’ll love.
  • The Suburban and Tahoe are fully refreshed, with a new diesel engine option, a redesigned interior with more cargo space and legroom, an improved suspension, and new standard safety technology.

If you’re looking to purchase the 2021 Suburban and Tahoe, be patient: while Chevrolet anticipates their launch will be smooth, normal production of these family SUVs has been delayed due to the global situation.

Refreshes take a gap year

The Chevrolet Traverse, Equinox, Silverado 1500, Camaro, and Bolt refreshes expected to arrive for 2021 have been delayed. The Traverse, Equinox, and Bolt will be 2022 models instead of 2021 like originally planned, and the other models’ redesign and manufacturing have been put on hold for a time.

Full speed ahead on new vehicles

While refreshes of older lines will take longer than expected, development continues on the upcoming Chevrolet Bolt EUV. We’re looking forward to this electric SUV and how it plans to revolutionize green driving.

You can find the 2020 versions of these Chevrolet models in stock at Courtesy Chevrolet Buick GMC now in Ruston, LA, and we’ll have the 2021 models in stock soon.

The Best Chevrolet Equinox Features for Families

The 2020 Chevrolet Equinox is a versatile crossover that is a great choice for many different drivers. Whether you are looking for a new family vehicle, your next daily driver, or something packed with technology, the Equinox offers many valuable qualities. Here are some of the best Chevrolet Equinox features.

  • Standard safety. This year, all Equinox models come standard with advanced driver safety aids. The Chevy Safety Assist package includes Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking, IntelliBeam® Headlamps, Forward Collision Alert, a Rear Vision Camera, and a Following Distance Indicator.
  • Comfortable interior. Five passengers can fit comfortably in the Equinox. Its seats are designed to be supportive, both in the front and back rows.
  • Strong engines. The Equinox gives you two strong turbocharged engine options. The standard 1.5-liter engine is rated at 170 horsepower, while the stronger, optional 2.4-liter engine delivers 252 horsepower.
  • Smooth ride. The suspension in the Equinox does a great job of absorbing bumps in the road to give you a smooth, comfortable ride. This also translates to responsive and stable handling.
  • Abundant standard technology. All trim levels of the Equinox come well-equipped. Even the base L trim gives you features like Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, and OnStar® capabilities with available 4G LTE W-Fi®.

Find the 2020 Equinox here in stock at Courtesy Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac. We have one in the combination of features you want.

Major Tahoe and Suburban Changes Announced for Redesign

Have you heard that Chevrolet will completely redesign the Tahoe and the Suburban for the 2021 model year? There are lots of exciting changes in store we wanted to share.

These new versions will offer more space, have a new engine option, and come with a new independent rear suspension. The Suburban gets a 4.1-inch increase in its wheelbase, which helps its maximum cargo area expand to 144.7 cubic feet. The Tahoe also gets bigger and will give third-row passengers 40 percent more legroom.

Some of the other impressive Tahoe and Suburban changes include an available 10-inch touch screen, available high-resolution 12.6-inch touch screens for the second row, and an optional head-up display. These all offer drivers an improved experience behind the wheel of these SUVs.

Both models have used a column shifter for decades. However, in the next-generation Tahoe and Suburban, you will see a vertical array of buttons for shifting the transmission. Michael Stapleton, Chevrolet Interior Design Director, told Muscle Cars & Trucks that the design team looked at several options, including a rotary dial, but decided to choose the vertical buttons because they are easier to use and line up more with the muscle memory many of us are used to when it comes to shifting.

Although these models will probably be delayed until next year — which could overlap with the 2022 model year, they’ll be welcome additions to the Chevy lineup at Courtesy Chevrolet Buick GMC. Browse our current-generation Tahoe and Suburban models in stock now.

Mid-Engine 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Earns Title of MotorTrend Car of the Year

Few automotive awards are as prestigious or difficult to achieve as MotorTrend Car of the Year. Yet, the redesigned 2020 Chevrolet Corvette has managed to add this title to its growing list of accolades.

During a special event at MotorTrend’s Los Angeles headquarters, the 2020 Corvette was awarded the title of Car of the Year.

The judges found plenty to love within the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette. One of the most notable changes to the Corvette that caught the judges’ attention was the introduction of its mid-engine powertrain setup. Thanks to this new engine configuration, the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette can race from zero-60 mph in a mere 2.8 seconds.

MotorTrend noted that while the stylings and amenities of the interior were opulent, most of these features also managed to be quite practical during everyday drives. Couple that interior with a refreshed, sporty exterior, and the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette is a winner inside and out.

You can see just how impressive the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette is when you take a trip to Courtesy Chevrolet Buick GMC and explore our Corvette lineup in person.
