2019 Chevrolet Silverado flies in for a brief introduction

2019 Chevrolet Silverado pictureGM’s pivotal new full-size pickup drops in for a surprise reveal in Texas.

FYI–Ron Westphal Chevy has heard the pickup bed on the all -new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado will be partially made with lightweight carbon fiber…but even we don’t know for sure.

Well, it looks like Chevrolet knows how to make an entrance. The company surprised a group of media and Chevy truck owners at with a first look at the 2019 Silverado by flying the truck in by helicopter. The presentation came Saturday at a centennial celebration staged at Texas Motor Speedway.

2019 Chevrolet Silverado picture front and backGeneral Motors remains mum on specs for the next-generation full-sized pickup, saying only that it will be lighter weight and come in eight trims, including the new Silverado LT Trailboss shown here. This model includes everything on the off-road specific Z71 package and adds a factory-backed two-inch suspension lift.

This truck — and its GMC Sierra twin — are the bedrock of GM’s entire business model. Even bearing in mind the Silverado’s spectacular helicopter fly-in, there may be splashier new vehicle introductions this year, but none will be as important to their automaker as this pickup.

We’ll get a closer look at the Silverado at the Detroit Auto Show in January.

Nabbing a Ride in the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1

2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1755 hp is a number many didn’t believe would ever be available on a road car. Yet there is a host of supercars, the 2019 Corvette ZR1 is the newest.

ROSAMOND, California—755 hp is a number many didn’t believe would ever be available on a road car. Yet there is a host of road-going supercars that are members of the 700 club, the newest being the 2019 Corvette ZR1. However, where other club members rely on mid-engine traction, the Corvette ZR1 is an old-school battle axe that takes aim at Porsche’s GT2 RS scalpel, Ferrari’s stiletto-like 488 GTB, and McLaren’s 720S sharpshooter. From the passenger seat, the Corvette ZR1 should’ve been called “Normandy: Part Two.”Source: Nabbing a Ride in the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 | Automobile Magazine

HANS secured, helmet strapped, I lowered myself into the pre-production Corvette ZR1, still covered in the camouflage and dirt it acquired during testing in Germany at the Nürburgring. Behind the wheel is Chevrolet’s development driver, Alex MacDonald. After I’m buckled in, I shake Alex’s hand and ask, “So, what can this baby do?” Alex replies, “Watch,” and slams my head into the headrest. Expletives and giggles followed.

2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 side rear viewWithin a blink of the eye, we’re at turn 1 of Willow Springs International Raceway’s Big Willow course. While Alex isn’t fazed, my eyes haven’t returned to their upright and locked position. The key to the Corvette ZR1’s prodigious propulsion is Chevrolet’s new LT5 supercharged V-8. While much of the LT5 is rooted in the Corvette Z06’s LT4, there are some quite significant departures from the Z06’s supercharged small-block, including the mammoth 2.65-liter supercharger. Combined with a new 73-mm throttle body, a new dual fuel system that uses both direct and port injection, a new oil system, and a few other go-faster bits, the Corvette ZR1 makes a whopping 715 lb-ft of torque along with those 755 horses.

10 things you could buy with $200,000 instead of the new Lamborghini Urus

Lamborghini has finally veiled its new SUV. The Lamborghini Urus will set you back $200,000. Here are 10 things you could buy instead.

10 things you could buy with $200,000After months of anticipation, luxury automobile manufacturer Lamborghini finally unveiled the Urus SUV. Packed with the company’s first production turbocharged engine — a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8, 650 horsepower, and 627 pound-feet of torque the Lamborghini Urus is nothing short of an automotive monster, but all of this engineering, of course, comes at a cost — $200,000, to be exact. This ungodly sum of cash got us to thinking, instead of buying this big car how could one just as easily, irrationally, and conspicuously blow this much cash? Here are the most investment- savvy ways to burn nearly a quarter of a million clams. Period.


Spike the beetle 10 things you could buy with $200,000

Spike the Stag beetle made our list of best pets of Instagram for his general charm, ornate tea parties, and, of course, his penchant for marker-on-canvas original creations. Spike’s original magnum opus auctioned earlier this year and sold on eBay for nearly $1,600. Spike’s next piece will be sold in the coming months with 20 percent of the proceeds going to People’s Trust for Endangered Species (PTES).


Cheeto 10 things you could buy with $200,000Harambe stole our hearts in 2016 and while his soul has departed he will live on forever in our hearts and of course our shared cultural meme lore. Anyway, someone found a Cheeto that kind of looks like Harambe and another human being paid nearly $100,000 for said cheese-dust thing. More than a year later it’s still too soon. It will always be… too soon. RIP, big guy.

$200,000 would buy anything we have on the lot.  About 12 brand new Chevy Cruze sedans or hatchbacks.  Give us a call at 630-898-9630 or visit our website.

Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Heavy-Duty Trucks Recalled for Gas Tank Issue

Chevrolet Silverado 3500 recallGeneral Motors is recalling about 35,000 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 3500 trucks because of a problem with the fuel tanks in the heavy-duty vehicles.

General Motors is recalling about 35,000 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 3500 trucks because of a problem with the fuel tanks in the vehicles.

The truck recall affects heavy-duty chassis cab-style trucks with dual fuel tanks from 2011 through 2015 model years.

The automaker said that if the front tank overfills, excess pressure could press it into the driveshaft and risk causing a leak. If fuel leaks onto a hot spot in the truck, a fire could start.

The problem is triggered when the low-fuel-level sensor for the front tank sticks, GM said.

Drivers could hear a knocking or grinding noise if an over-pressured fuel tank starts to contact with the driveshaft, GM said.

Owners will be asked to take their trucks to dealers. Technicians will replace the rear tank fuel pump or update the fuel-level sensor software, as well as inspect the front tank, replacing it as necessary.

GM plans to send recall notices to owners in December and then again in February. Owners can also contact GM customer service for Chevrolet (800) 222-1020 or for GMC customer service at (800) 462-8782. Owners asking about the recall should refer to GM’s identification number for it – 17399.

1st Chevrolet Corvette Carbon 65 Will Be Auctioned Off For Veterans

Corvette Carbon 65 auction

The Chevrolet Corvette Carbon 65 Edition is a racy little number, isn’t it? Thanks to General Motors and the George W. Bush Presidential Center, you now have a chance to become the first owner of the special edition sports car when it goes up for auction at the upcoming Barret-Jackson Scottsdale event this coming January. Proceeds from the sale from the auction will go to the Bush Center’s Military Service Initiative, a charity that focuses on supporting post-9/11 veterans and helping them transition back to civilian life. The charity is supported by no less than former US President George W. Bush.

Get your own slice of the American Muscle Pie at Ron Westphal Chevrolet in Aurora, IL.  Or, call our Customer Care Team now at 630-898-9630 to arrange your V.I.P. test drive.

The Corvette Carbon 65 Edition made its debut at the 2017 New York Auto Show in April, created in no small part to Chevy’s motivation to celebrate the 65th anniversary of the legendary sports car. The car itself isn’t a special edition in the traditional sense of the phrase. Instead, the Carbon 65 Edition is a package that can be added to either coupe or convertible versions of the Corvette. The package consists mainly of exterior and interior upgrades, and Chevy is only creating 650 of them. That “numbered” status is a big part of the Corvette Carbon 65 Edition’s appeal, and the fact that the first-of-its-kind is headed to the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction makes this specific model all the more desirable. So is the fact that it will be signed by President Bush himself. That’s an extra shot of provenance for a special edition package that breathes new life into the iconic American sports car.
