Silverado Sees Massive Sales Improvement Due to V6 Engine

The EcoTec3 V6 engine is a nice addition to the Silverado 1500 and a profit for Chevrolet.
Chevy’s boost in sales was helped by the Silverado’s new EcoTec3 V6 engine.

 

The all-new 2014 Silverado has vastly improved the sales of the full-size pickup. In 2014, the Silverado currently holds a 20% share of the market, whereas the previous model only had 5% of the same market. At Nehls Chevrolet, we believe that the all-new EcoTec3 V6 engine is largely responsible for the uptick.

We’re not alone in this thought either. A recent Chevrolet press release listed five different reasons why the new engine is such an awesome addition to the new 2014 Silverado. However, we’ll just sum up the press release in a few short words: the 4.3L EcoTec3 V6 brings increased power and efficiency to an already awesome vehicle.

The new engine uses EcoTec technology to chug out class-leading torque—305 lb-ft—and 7,600 lbs of available towing. And it’s not short on speed, either. It revs up to 285 horsepower to go with that class-leading torque. And all that comes with 24 mpg highway and 18 mpg city, an awesome improvement in fuel economy in a typically stingy segment.

So come by Nehls and check out the awesome new engine—and the truck that it sits inside of—today!

Chevrolet Rolls Out Truck Month and Open House Event

Chevrolet will be giving discounts on many of its top models in March with the Truck Month and Open House Event going on.
It’s that time of year again. Chevrolet is doing Truck Month!

Chevrolet plans to expand their offers next month by running its Truck Month and Open House Event.

Starting this Saturday, Truck Month will run through March 31 and offer supplier pricing on light-duty and heavy-duty Silverado trucks from 2014.

This announcement follows February when General Motors had big offers going on for Presidents’ Day.

The promotion will be offered along with a Chevy Open House Event, which will also provide supplier pricing or less on all 2014 Chevy models except the Corvette Stingray and SS sports sedan.

According to reports sent out to dealers, GM calls the sale event an “unprecedented promotional assault.” The sale event’s tagline will be, “The price you see is the price you pay! Or less!”

An example from the report shows that the double cab Silverado 1500 All Star Edition, which usually goes for $37,520, will be listed at $30,828 after the March discount.

Will you see these discounts at our store? You betcha! Visit Nehls Chevrolet today!

The Chevrolet Silverado will have a another truck under its wing next fall.

Chevrolet is expanding its presence in the truck market with the updated addition of an old friend.

This week, Chevrolet introduced the 2015 Chevy Colorado at the LA Auto Show. The midsize truck joins a lineup that already includes the Silverado 1500 and Heavy Duty trucks.

Available in 2WD and FWD, The Colorado will come in a crew cab with a five or six foot bed and an extended cab and six foot bed.

Standard with the Colorado is a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine, which is equipped with direct fuel injection, generating 193 horsepower and 184 1b-ft of torque.

The Colorado will be out next fall and is expected to get a 2.8-liter Duramax turbo-diesel engine as a feature, which will make it the only midsize pickup truck to offer such power.

While you wait, have a look around our Silverado inventory. Nehls Chevrolet can’t wait for the Colorado to reenter today’s market.
