Pickup trucks are more popular than ever. After 2018 saw record-breaking purchases of over 2 million trucks in the USA, General Motors aims to gain more of the market share. The 2019 Silverado Trail Boss aims to do that by impressing buyers with its off-roading prowess and powerful engines.
Powered by a potent engine, the Trail Boss features a 5.3-liter DFM V8 generating 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque regulated by an eight-speed automatic transmission. Using this powertrain, the Silverado Trail Boss can accelerate like few other trucks can, going from 0-60 mph in a swift 6.1 seconds. An optional 3.0-liter Duramax turbo-diesel I6 engine is on its way, but official specs have not been announced yet.
The Silverado’s look shows it’s ready for action, with a two-inch lift, 18-inch Goodyear Duratrac tires, skid plates, Rancho shock absorbers, and other exterior enhancements.
When it comes to the rougher roads ahead, the 2019 Silverado Trail Boss glides with control and ease. Chevy has optimized its steering particularly for challenging terrains, giving you the option to switch between modes for better control.
When the road turns to dust, the Trail Boss really shows off. Bradshaw Chevrolet will have the 2019 Silverado Trail Boss soon, and we can’t wait to have this adventure machine on our lot.
General Motors kicked off the New Year with an ad campaign demonstrating just what the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has to offer American drivers. Dubbed “A Little Bit Country, A Little Bit Rock ‘n’ Roll,” the ad puts the spotlight on people from all walks of life.
The ad keeps in tune with Donny and Marie Osmond’s classic song of the same name. The minute-long commercial spotlights real Silverado 1500 drivers, who are farmers, businessmen, construction workers, fishermen, soldiers, and industrial workers, perfectly demonstrating America’s love for a reliable, versatile pickup truck.
“This spot celebrates the fact that the all-new Silverado is designed and engineered for all facets of America,” Chevrolet said in a statement.
The ad debuted during the College National football game. It’s the first of three video spots designed to showcase how drivers use their Chevrolet Silverado 1500 in their daily lives.
The second ad, titled “Official Truck of the Real People,” focuses on how the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is perfect for work and play. The third ad, dubbed ”Tailgates,” shines the spotlight on the segment-exclusive power up/down tailgate. Both ads will air digitally and in select theaters later this year.
Put a little more country and rock ‘n’ roll in your life by test driving the Silverado 1500 at Bradshaw Chevrolet.

Luxury pickup trucks are in a class of their own. They have to combine the full-size capability of a truck with the comfort and style of a member of the luxury class.

We all know that using your phone while driving is dangerous. But, according to a Research Now study, 90 percent of drivers have done it at some point. This is a daunting statistic. To help curb this hazardous driving habit, Chevrolet has created the Call Me Out app.
Alan Batey, president of GM North America and head of Global Chevrolet, articulated the company’s goal for the app. “With Call Me Out, we are extending our commitment beyond the technologies integrated into GM and Chevy vehicles and are making the app available for Android phone users who drive other vehicle makes and models in an effort to help people change their driving behavior and make our roads safer.”
This app, which is available to download now on Android smartphones, uses a combination of technology and peer influence to encourage drivers to leave their phones alone while driving. To app relies on the phone’s GPS and accelerometer to determine when the phone is travelling faster than 5 mph. If someone picks up the phone while driving, the app will automatically play a personalized message prerecorded by family members or friends.
The app also keeps track of your progress and awards points. The less you handle your phone, the more points you will get and the higher up the scoreboard you will go.

The process of fueling up is such a drag. It’s inconvenient, time-consuming, and your gas tank always seems to be on the verge of empty when you just want to get home. Thankfully, Buick has come up with a way to make stopping for gas easier and faster than ever. Buick models with access to the Buick Marketplace will be able to download the ExxonMobil Speedpass app, which allows drivers to pay through the convenience of their app.
The ExxonMobil Speedpass app is compatible with over 11,000 Exxon and Mobile gas stations across the United States and lets drivers pay in their vehicle without swiping a card. Drivers can even earn points through the rewards program. In order to use the app, Buick drivers simply have to press the app icon through the interface of their vehicle’s infotainment system, allow the app to detect their location, and then select a pump and payment method. The app will be available free of charge.
The ExxonMobil Speedpass app will make everything from the daily commute to long-distance road trips easier than ever for Buick drivers. This partnership isn’t the only way Buick makes filling up more convenient, however; all recent models come standard with capless gas tanks, too, for quick and easy fueling.
Looking for more ways to increase mileage so you don’t have to stop for gas as frequently? Visit us at Bradshaw Automotive to test-drive one of our efficient new vehicles.
One of GMC’s most popular SUVs is the Acadia. The mid-size SUV is great for families with the versatility of an available third row and modern technology. For the upcoming 2019 model year, GMC has announced a series of Acadia updates that will make it even more appealing.
For starters, the exterior color options are getting adjusted. While GMC is taking away three choices (Mineral Metallic, Black Cherry Metallic, and Crimson Red Tintcoat), it is adding four new options: Red Quartz Metallic, Pepperdust Metallic, Dark Sky Metallic, and Smokey Quartz Metallic.
For those looking for a darker overall appearance, the Acadia Black Edition package will be available on the SLT trim. This special edition model comes with a black grille insert and surround, 20-inch machined aluminum wheels with black accents, black roof rails, black headlamp and taillamp accents, black mirror caps, and other accents.
Standard features on all models will include Bluetooth® connectivity, a 7-inch touch screen, OnStar® with 4G LTE Wi-Fi capabilities, Android Auto™, and Apple CarPlay™.
We can also look forward to even more changes for the 2020 model year, when the Acadia is due for a mid-cycle refresh. With that update, we can expect to see powertrain and styling changes.
With Chevrolet gearing up for the release of the next generation of the Tahoe in 2020, the 2019 Chevy Tahoe manifests only subtle changes.
The 2019 Tahoe gains a metallic gray color and loses two others, which alters some paint options in the trims and packages. The Premier trim will get new Premier badging on its tailgate, but that’s it for 2019 updates on the Chevy Tahoe.
You can expect to see much bigger changes on the 2020 model, though GM has yet to reveal details. We do know that the new Tahoe will be based on the GM T1 platform. It will also offer all-new engineering and be 300 pounds lighter than the previous generation.
The new generation of Tahoe will most likely see a full redesign of its interior and exterior, with both front-wheel drive and four-wheel drive options. Chevy may add its autonomous driving technology GM Super Cruise. The Tahoe is also expected to come with a next-gen infotainment system and a more convenient third row.
The 2019 Tahoe is set to hit dealerships later this year, with the new gen 2020 Tahoe most likely arriving sometime in late 2019.
Stop by Bradshaw Automotive later this year to test-drive the 2019 Chevy Tahoe. Until then, visit us to browse our current Chevy inventory.
The Chevrolet Cruze compact sedan is one of the best-selling Chevy vehicles. It’s efficient, affordable, stylish, and packed with thoughtful amenities. The upcoming 2019 Chevrolet Cruze will keep the momentum going with updates to its design and trim levels. Here’s what to expect from the new model year.
Changes to the 2019 Chevrolet Cruze will be apparent immediately, thanks to updates to the front fascia. The new Chevy Cruze gets a bolder look with a wider grille and refreshed, modern accents. These new details give the Cruze a more sophisticated and upscale look, while maintaining the sensible design and affordability the model is known for.
New Hatchback Trim
The 2019 Chevy Cruze will be available in a brand new hatchback trim, the Hatch LS. The current hatchback trims already account for a fifth of the Cruze sales, and this higher level trim will bring wider options to buyers looking for a five-door option.
Certain trims of the 2019 Cruze will also offer new amenities. LT and Premier models will get remote start and automatic climate control, while the brand new Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system will be available as an upgrade to in-cabin technology.

The half-ton pickup market is a competitive segment, especially here in America. Pickup trucks offer a variety of different features, capabilities, and packages to appeal to a broad and diverse audience. GMC is staying one step ahead of competitors with expanded options for the GMC Sierra 1500. The model, due for a 2019 model year release, will offer drivers the options of a carbon fiber truck bed and an off-road trim level.
One of the most anticipated new features to debut on the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 is the MultiPro tailgate. This feature keeps cargo more secure by preventing it from shifting, as well as making loading, unloading, accessing it easier. This tailgate will be standard on the SLT and Denali trim levels, which are the models selected by 87% of GMC Sierra 1500 customers.
More tie-downs and 110-volt outlet will also be included with the Sierra 1500’s short box, and in addition to the standard high-strength steel boxes, drivers will be able to select truck beds built from alloy, which has been engineered to be 50% stronger than the Sierra 1500’s current alloy box. Later in the model year, the GMC Sierra 1500 will also offer a CarbonPro box with some panels made from carbon-fiber composite.
