The United States is in the middle of a great war, one that isn’t being fought with military power or tax payer’s money. Of course, we’re referring to the pickup truck war currently taking much of Ford, GM, and Ram’s human and financial assets—one that’s about one-upping the competition and rolling out bigger and “badder” TV and YouTube ads. The latest victim of this ruthless war: Ram’s new Heavy Duty pickup truck.
Looking for your very own beefy Silverado HD? Call our customer care team at 630-898-9630 or visit us online 24/7. According to a presentation made by Chevrolet during the recent introduction of its all-new heavy-duty pickup truck, the Silverado HD can out-accelerate the also all-new Ram Heavy Duty while towing an 18,000-pound trailer.
To be specific, the data gathered (as shown in the photo below) explains that a Silverado 3500 DRW (dual rear wheel) accelerates faster from zero to 60, 25 to 60, and 40 to 60 miles per hour than a Cummins-powered Ram 3500 DRW. Why does this matter? Because the Ram boasts a higher torque figure than the Silverado, which—in theory—should make it more capable at towing. The Silverado offers 910 pound-feet of torque on tap, while the Ram reigns supreme with a staggering 1,000 pound-feet.
There are other differences besides torque, of course. The Silverado delivers 445 horsepower while the Ram gets the job done with “only” 400. When it comes to transmissions, the Silverado boasts a fancy 10-speed automatic, which offers four more gears than the Ram’s old-school six-speed. Lastly, despite the differences in torque, the Silverado claims a maximum towing capacity of 35,500 pounds, while the Ram is rated at 35,100.
According to Chevrolet, upgraded drive-line components help the Silverado achieve maximum torque in first gear without needing to electronically limit torque. On paper, 910 pound-feet of torque isn’t best-in-class, but yet through clever engineering they were able to obtain the current best-in-class towing number.
During the presentation, Chevy explained that they compared both vehicles at the Milford Proving Grounds, where they attached to an 18,000-pound trailer to both of them and performed the acceleration tests. At the end of the day, the Silverado reached 60 mph a whopping 2.6 seconds quicker than the Ram with the more powerful, high-output diesel engine.
Of course, the two weigh different amounts and there is different gearing on each truck (and the gearing delta is different by design), but Chevy claims they are able to do more with the additional four gears in the 10-speed transmission compared to the six-speed in the Ram.
While we can’t talk about actual driving impressions of the new Silverado HD yet, Chevrolet’s own testing data seems to make a case for higher/better gearing over a pure torque figure.

In Car Ordering pizza is a reality.
Pizza had a big week, in no small part thanks to new developments from Domino’s that are all about finding new ways to get the pie to your front door faster.
The Ann Arbor, MI-based company announced at the beginning of the week that it had partnered with autonomous car company Nuro to test pizza delivery via self-driving vehicles.
The Nuro pilot is currently limited to Houston, Texas, at the moment (yes, you’ll have to wait, Florida). But anyone in the U.S. with a connected Chevrolet vehicle can take advantage of Domino’s other big news news, which is that the chain is now available for order through Chevy’s in-car Marketplace system.
Marketplace is part of Chevy’s in-vehicle commerce platform that lets users order food, make hotel reservations, and even pay for fuel right from the car’s dashboard. It works independent of users’ smartphones, though anyone wanting to order Domino’s through the system will first need to set up a profile online or through the mobile Domino’s app. Once the user has set up their preferred delivery address, payment information, as well as pie preferences, they can link their Domino’s profile directly to Chevy’s in-car system and order pizza straight from the latter, whose touchscreen interface sits in the dashboard of the car.
Looking for a Chevy that orders pizza? Call our Customer Care Team at 630-898-9630 or visit us online 24/7.
Domino’s is the first pizza chain available through Marketplace, which also makes it the first pizza chain you can order with from the car without picking up your smartphone.
The move follows Domino’s announcement from March that it had partnered with Xevo, who makes the in-vehicle commerce technology that powers systems from Chevrolet, GMC, and others. Domino’s has said it wants to have its in-car ordering capabilities on 1 million vehicles by the end of 2019. Joining Chevrolet’s marketplace will be another step towards realizing that goal.
The post Domino’s and Chevrolet Team Up for In-Car Ordering appeared first on The Spoon.
The stunt jump at the Carlisle Chevrolet Nationals on June 22 lasted only a few seconds, but it was an open question about whether the vehicle would be drivable again – or if the driver would walk away unharmed.
For Raymond Kohn, the stunt driver with Northeast Ohio Dukes, walking away at all after such a jump wasn’t always an option.
“This is my 12th year[of stunt driving], and I’ve jumped [a recreation of the “Dukes of Hazzard” car] the General Lee 22 times,” Kohn said. “I’ve had about nine concussions, about eight broken ankles. I’ve broken my wrist in Detroit, I’ve broken my collarbone and had severe whiplash.”
Instead of doing a stunt jump with 1969 Dodge Charger that the Duke boys were famed for driving on the aforementioned TV series, Kohn was behind the wheel of a 1977 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am – the vehicle used by Burt Reynold’s character in the film “Smokey and the Bandit.”
Kohn’s jump at the Carlisle Fairgrounds recreated the bridge jump made in the film, as a tribute to Reynolds following his death in September of 2018.
And just like in the film, there was no landing ramp.
“There was never a landing ramp in Hazzard County, or in ‘Smokey and the Bandit’,” he said. “And that’s what we’re doing now. We’re going to stay true to Hollywood, stay true to the movies, and the TV shows, and we’re going to do it old school, the right way.”
Watch the live video of the jump below:

A: When the “Change Engine Oil Soon” message appears, oil change service is necessary for the vehicle as soon as possible, within the next 600 miles.
If driving under the best conditions, the Engine Oil Life System might not indicate the need for vehicle service for more than a year. The motor oil and filter must be changed at least once a year and the Engine Oil Life System will need to be reset. Your Chevrolet dealer has Certified Service expert technicians who will perform this work and reset the system. Click here to schedule service, or call us at 630-898-9630.
A: Consult your vehicle Owner’s Manual or visit the Certified Service experts at your Chevrolet dealer to be sure you get the proper oil for your vehicle. For 2011 or newer vehicles, dexos1TM Full Synthetic is the recommended oil specification (dexos1TM for gasoline engines, dexos2TM for light-duty diesel engines, 15W40 CJ-4 for Duramax diesel engines). Advantages of dexos1TM Full Synthetic over conventional motor oil include improved oil performance and protection, increased piston cleanliness, reduced oil consumption, and greater viscosity control.

JustGiants Dog Rescues stops by the Ron Westphal Chevy showroom to collect the money we raised at PrairieFest!
Posted by Wesley A Westfall on Wednesday, June 19, 2019
Ron Westphal Chevrolet was proud to present JustGiants Dog Rescue with some cash that we raised at this year’s PrairieFest Celebration.
This should make the new Blazer look even more aggressive.
After a 14-year hiatus, the Chevrolet Blazer has been reborn as a mid-size crossover for the modern age. Unlike its predecessor, however, it lacks body-on-frame construction and is instead built on the same platform that underpins the GMC Acadia.
The reborn Blazer went on sale earlier this year with a starting price of $29,995 for the entry-level L trim, but if you want the SUV to have some extra visual flair you may want to wait for this stylish special edition model to arrive. According to GM Authority, the 2020 Chevrolet Blazer is getting the Redline Edition treatment.
Like Chevrolet’s other Redline Edition models such as the 2018 Chevrolet Cruze Redline Edition, 2018 Chevrolet Malibu Redline Edition, and 2018 Chevrolet Trax Redline Edition, the new special edition Blazer will feature a slew of visual upgrades to help it stand out.
GM Authority claims the package will be available on 2020 Blazer models in the mid-range 2LT and 3LT trim levels. No photos of the stylish special-edition model have been released yet, but the 2020 Blazer Redline Package will include 20-inch aluminum wheels finished in Gloss Black with red trim accents, a black Blazer badge with a red outline and a black AWD badge with red outline, as well as black grille, header bar, window surrounds, sideview mirror caps and mirror stalks, door handles, front and rear Bow Tie badging, and decals.
There are also a few conditions to consider, as the Redline Edition will replace the Black Grille Package and the standalone black Bow Tie emblem package. It also requires a Jet Black interior and can only be applied to Blazers with Silver Ice Metallic, Summit White, or Black exterior colors.
The standard Blazer looks like a Camaro SUV, but the new Redline Edition should amp up the aggression. As for availability, GM Authority reports the new Redline Edition will be available for the interim 2020 model year, meaning it won’t be available at launch.
