Chevrolet revealed on 5/11/16 the Silverado High Desert package, which will arrive in dealers this fall. Based on the concept vehicle revealed at the 2014 SEMA show, the High Desert package brings unique content and capability to Silverado’s lineup of special editions – which offers more choices for truck buyers than any other brand.
Available on LT, LTZ, and High Country trim levels, the High Desert package combines refined exterior styling, an all-new cargo system that is lockable and water resistant and available Magnetic Ride Control suspension on High Country.
“The High Desert package blends the capability and utility of Silverado with the refinement and luxury of Suburban,” said Sandor Piszar, director of Chevrolet truck marketing. “It’s ideal for those customers who want both the security of a lockable cargo area, as well as the flexibility of a pickup truck bed.”
An all-new flexible, lockable storage system in the cargo bed locks cargo away safely and protects it from the elements. The system installs over the roll-formed, high-strength steel bed to add dual side storage bins and a three-piece hard tonneau cover. Inside, a cargo divider can be raised to secure smaller items, or lowered to access the full length of the bed floor. As with all Silverado LT, LTZ, and High Country models, the tailgate locks with the keyfob, enabling users to secure their cargo with the push of a button. The High Desert package on the LT trim level features 20-inch wheels with all-season tires, while 22-inch wheels and all-terrain tires are available on LTZ and High Country trim levels.
The High Desert is also the first Silverado offered with Magnetic Ride Control suspension, which delivers more precise body motion control. Its sensors “read” the road every millisecond, triggering damping changes in as little as five milliseconds in electronically controlled shock absorbers that replace conventional mechanical-valve shocks. They’re filled with a magneto-rheological fluid containing minute iron particles and under the presence of a magnetic charge, the iron particles align to provide damping resistance. Changes in the magnetic charge alter the damping rate of the
shocks, with changes occurring almost instantly.
Silverado’s EcoTec3 6.2L V-8, is available on LTZ and High Country models and is backed by the new Hydra-Matic 8L90 eight-speed automatic transmission. The engine is SAE-certified at 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque, making it the most powerful engine offered in a light-duty truck.

It was a chance find, based on a story recounted by a friend of a
friend. But there it was – the classic muscle car you’d been searching
for, hidden beneath a dusty tarp in an old barn. You worked hard, but
finally convinced the stubborn farmer to sell it.
With the car safely in your garage, the exuberance of the thrill of
the hunt morphs into the realization that a careful and accurate
restoration is needed to bring that vintage car back to its original
glory. That means more hunting for the right parts; everything from
the carburetor to the clamps that hold the fuel lines in place.
GM knows it’s the little things that count with a restoration. With
countless resources for restoration components, assurance that
you’re getting the most authentic and best-fitting parts comes when
you buy officially licensed GM Restoration Parts. They’re made by

accordingly. Many even use original tooling for unparalleled accuracy
in look, feel and performance.
You can find licensed GM Restoration Parts for everything from
Grille badge from a 1969 Camaro. That’s right – an entire classic Camaro body!
Before purchasing any reproduction parts for your valuable project,
make sure the manufacturer is licensed by GM Restoration Parts.
With mint condition on your mind, licensed GM Restoration Parts are
the only parts that should go into your barn-find beauty.
ChevySmallCars.com is a new website that Chevrolet Launched!
DETROIT – Chevrolet is launching ChevySmallCars.com, an all-new lifestyle-oriented website focused on its small car offerings, the Spark minicar, Sonic and Trax small SUV.
“The Spark, Sonic and Trax all target a younger, more socially savvy buyer,” said Steve Majoros, Chevrolet director of cars and crossovers. “When we looked at reasons for purchase, cross consideration and demographics, we found a number of similarities. By aligning these products we can be more strategic and create more engaging, sharable content that speaks directly to this audience.”
ChevySmallCars.com will host content designed with a younger customer in mind and do it in a way that allows visitors to engage and discover Chevy on their own terms. At the heart of it is “Small Talk,” three short episodes featuring the Sonic, Spark or Trax, produced by Funny Or Die and hosted by comedian Al Madrigal. The videos will also be hosted on Funny Or Die.
In ”Sonic Sessions,” up-and-coming artists Kickstand Band perform one of their songs in a Sonic. It’s filmed in a raw style, with the band’s music merging with environmental sounds to create a unique listening experience. The band gets creative with the small space in the Sonic, playing their song on smaller instruments.
”Find Your Smallmate” gives visitors the opportunity to take a small quiz and, based on their answers, matches a small car to their personality. A way for consumers to find the best small Chevy for their lifestyle.
“Sonic, Spark and Trax customers are likely to be first-time new car buyers and traditionally are more likely to stay with the brand as their needs and lifestyle changes and they need to move up to a bigger sedan or SUV,” said Majoros. “We’ve introduced a lot of new vehicles in the last few years and the new website is a great way to expose a portion of our portfolio that not everyone knows about.”
As part of the new small car initiatives Chevy will also partner with media outlets such as .Mic, Complex and Thrillist in concentrated key markets.
Additional content coming for ChevySmallCars.com includes:
Founded in 1911 in Detroit, Chevrolet is now one of the world’s largest car brands, doing business in more than 115 countries and selling more than 4.0 million cars and trucks a year. Chevrolet provides customers with fuel-efficient vehicles that feature engaging performance, design that makes the heart beat, passive and active safety features and easy-to-use technology, all at a value.

The 2017 Trax restyled
In 2015, small SUVs comprised the fastest-growing segment in the industry, and with enhancements coming
to the 2017 Chevrolet Trax, we are in a position to win segment leadership.
The new, restyled 2017 Trax will play a pivotal role for Chevrolet in the highly competitive Small SUV arena.
Since Trax made its debut in December 2014, it has surged to No. 2 in the Small SUV segment with a 20
percent share of that market.
Trax has helped attract many new customers to Chevrolet and has earned the largest following among
women, by percentage (58 percent), of any vehicle in the Chevrolet lineup.
Now, we’re planning to build on that success and give Trax an even stronger presence with design
enhancements inside and out, technology upgrades and the latest available safety features.
We’re adding phone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility,1 plus available driver
safety alerts that could help prevent a crash or reduce its impact.
Of course, Trax will maintain all its proven benefits. Trax not only offers excellent fuel economy,2 but also
demonstrates that a small vehicle can offer unexpected benefits such as advanced connectivity, SUV
versatility and available all-wheel drive.
These style and technology enhancements are designed to ensure the new 2017 Trax stands out in a
segment with many competitors. As our small car portfolio brings younger customers into your showrooms, we’ll have more opportunities to win their loyalty.
The new Trax is scheduled to arrive at dealerships in fall 2016.

Indy Pace Car – A unique version of the new, 2017 Camaro SS 50th Anniversary Edition will lead the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 next month, driven by motorsports legend Roger Penske, who is marking 50 years as a race team owner.
It’s the ninth time Camaro has served as the pace car and the 27th time for Chevrolet, dating back to 1948.
“Chevrolet and the Indianapolis 500 have a long, storied history and it’s an honor to mark the respective milestones of the Indy 500 race and the Camaro simultaneously,” said Mark Reuss, executive vice president of Global Product Development and Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. “It’s also a privilege to have Roger Penske perform the driving duties, as his team has helped Chevrolet earn four consecutive IndyCar manufacturer titles since 2012.”
Four identically prepared pace cars will support the race, all with exclusive Abalone White exteriors featuring “100th Running of the Indianapolis 500” graphics on the doors and the iconic Indianapolis Motor Speedway wing-and-wheel logo on the quarter panels. They also incorporate the exterior cues and graphics that are unique to the Camaro 50th Anniversary package that goes on sale this summer.
With 455 horsepower on tap, the Camaro SS pace cars require no performance modifications to lead the racing field.
