Chevrolet SUVs Getting a New Look with RST Special Editions

There’s nothing quite like driving something with a little bit of flare that stands out from the crowd. Chevrolet has announced new Rally Sport Truck (RST) editions for both the Tahoe and Suburban. These special editions will deliver more power and unique styling for both models.

The RST special editions will be available to order and here at Lewis Nissan this fall. To give these models a street performance look, nearly all chrome accents have been removed and replaced with a body-color grille surround and door handles; black roof rails, badging, window trim, and Chevy bowtie; and a gloss-black grille and mirror caps. They will also come with unique 22-inch wheels.

Both models have available upgrades. For better exhaust flow, the Borla performance exhaust system offers a 28% improvement, which translates to a gain of 7-10 horsepower. Available front red Brembo brake calipers enhance the shopping power with an 84% increase in brake pad area and a 42% increase in rotor area.

The Tahoe RST is available with a Performance Package that amps up the power with a 6.2-liter V8 engine rated at 420 horsepower. This package also includes Magnetic Ride Control with a performance calibration and a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Upcoming Chevrolet Medium-Duty Truck Gets Duramax Diesel

At The Work Truck Show 2017, General Motors confirmed that it is working on an all-new Chevrolet medium-duty truck that will launch sometime in 2018. This truck will be geared towards commercial uses and will be powered by a Duramax diesel engine and Allison transmission.

“Our new Chevrolet medium-duty will be the flagship of our truck portfolio for fleet and commercial customers, and we believe the strength of Duramax/Allison powertrain combination will be able to tackle various jobs – from general contracting to urban delivery to bucket loaders and wreckers,” John Schwegman, US director of Commercial Product and Medium Duty for GM Fleet said.

The Duramax/Allison combination is a winning choice and is one that can be found in nearly two million trucks. Chevrolet will release more specifications for this medium-duty truck, including cab sizes, horsepower and torque ratings, payload capabilities, and more, closer to its launch next year.

If you are looking for a Duramax-powered pickup now, the 2017 Silverado HD comes with a redesigned 6.6-liter V8 turbo-diesel with a class-leading 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque.

Here at Nehl’s Chevrolet, we are excited to have a new truck option in the Chevrolet lineup and can’t wait to learn even more about this upcoming model.
