GMC Reveals Canyon AT4 OVRLANDX Off-Road Concept Truck

GMC Canyon AT4 OVRLANDX | Greer, SC
With over 20 premium off-roading features, the GMC Canyon AT4 OVRLANDX concept was designed to be everything an overlanding enthusiast needs. Confident capability comes from features like the truck’s heavy-duty front bumper with winch, front and rear electronic locking differentials, and 33-inch BFGoodrich KM3 Mud-Terrain tires, enabling a 27.7-degree approach angle and 10.0 inches of ground clearance. For longer adventures, drivers could enjoy the convenience of features like a camp kitchen, topper-mounted tent and truck bed storage system.

GMC recently introduced a new concept truck: the Canyon AT4 OVRLANDX. This off-roading beast wowed at the Overland Expo Mountain West 2021 with its premium appointments and impressive capabilities.

The Canyon AT4 OVRLANDX features Multimatic DSSV™ dampers as well as front and rear electronic locking differentials to make for smooth rides. Off-road rocker panel protectors and a factory-lifted, wide off-road chassis with improved underbody coverage can keep the truck safe on rough terrains.

It drives on 33-inch BFGoodrich® KM3 Mud-Terrain tires that ensure plenty of traction. Plus, this concept truck offers 10 inches of ground clearance, 32.1 inches of water fording capability, and a 27.7-degree approach angle — so trail obstacles are no issue.

A roof-mounted tent, a 270-degree awning, a kitchenette and cooler, and jerry cans for gasoline and water make the OVRLANDX more convenient for camping and fishing trips. In addition, design elements like an exclusive leather-wrapped interior, unique grille and headlamp finishes, and distinct AT4 badges give the truck an eye-catching look.

While you can’t buy the Canyon AT4 OVRLANDX at dealerships right now, GMC does offer the off-road-capable AT4 trim for the Canyon, Sierra 1500, Sierra HD, Yukon, Terrain, and Acadia. Check out some of these models at Bradshaw Automotive in Greer, South Carolina, and take one out for a test drive.

Chevy Colorado Gets New Trail Boss Package

2022 Chevrolet Colorado Greer, SC

The new Chevy Colorado has plenty of features and upgrades to impress for the 2022 model year. But, one feature that is sure to thrill adventure-seekers is the new Trail Boss Package, specifically designed for off-roading adventures.

The Trail Boss Package will bolster the 2022 Chevy Colorado to take on the toughest terrain thanks to features including 17-inch high-gloss black wheels, a performance front skid plate, a performance mid skid plate, red recovery hooks, and a front 1-inch leveling kit. Adding to the exterior style and bold design of the 2022 Colorado are tailgate lettering and Colorado emblems in black.

To get the Trailboss Package, you will need to choose a four-wheel drive equipped LT or Z71 trim of the 2022 Chevy Colorado. Opting for the Trail Boss Package on the LT trim will clad your Colorado with black bowtie emblems but make it ineligible for the Chrome Appearance Package. You also won’t be privy to the Redline Special Edition and LPO-level wheels. The Z71 Midnight Edition and any LPO-level wheels are not compatible with the Trail Boss Package on the Z71 trim.

Contact Bradshaw Automotive to learn more about how you can equip the 2022 Chevrolet Colorado with the new Trailboss Package.

Chevrolet Traverse Wins IIHS Top Safety Pick Award

2021 Chevrolet Traverse | Greer, SC

Safety is a top concern for Chevrolet and it shows in the 2021 Chevrolet Traverse. When equipped with optional front crash prevention and specific headlights, the midsize SUV earns a Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

“Safety for our customers through each of our brands has always been paramount to our operations,” said John Capp, director of Global Safety Technology, Strategy and Regulations at GM.

The well-equipped 2021 Traverse earned the rating from the IIHS after it scored “Good” in the agency’s crashworthiness tests, the highest mark available. The six crashworthiness tests are small overlap front: driver side, small overlap front: passenger-side, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints and seats. The IIHS also rated the available front crash prevention, vehicle-to-vehicle tech in the 2021 Traverse as “Superior.”

Standard safety tech on the 2021 Traverse, which is available with FWD or AWD, includes a rear vision camera, an airbag system, and a tire pressure monitoring system. Teen Driver technology is also standard, allowing you to monitor the driving habits of your inexperienced driver as well as set limits on vehicle features including speed and audio volume.

The IIHS isn’t the only prominent safety group to rate the Traverse highly. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has given the 2021 Chevrolet Traverse a five-star overall safety rating.

Coming Soon | 2022 Silverado 1500 | Greer, SC

This fall, Chevrolet steps up its truck game yet again with the new and improved 2022 Silverado 1500. Likely debuting in September, the latest Silverado pickup boasts a host of impressive improvements — including cutting-edge technology and an exciting new trim.

Chevrolet has confirmed that the new 2022 Silverado will be the second vehicle in the lineup to receive Super Cruise™ hands-free driving technology. Super Cruise™ comes enhanced for 2022 with a new feature tailor-made for the Silverado: the ability to trailer hands-free. New Super Cruise™ also offers features like automatic lane change and an enhanced navigation display.

2022 also finally marks the debut of the Silverado ZR2. The popular trim, which has been part of the Colorado lineup since 2017, will make the latest Silverado even more off-road-capable than ever. Expect similar upgrades to the Colorado ZR2, including a Multimatic DSSV™ Damping System and a unique ZR2 off-road-tuned suspension.

On top of all this, the new 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will sport a bold new look inside and out. Expected improvements include a larger touch-screen display, more interior refinement, and a more aggressive face. Considering that the current Silverado is one of the best-looking and most refined trucks on the road, there’s plenty of reason to be excited.

Another reason to be excited: Chevrolet should be pulling the cover off the 2022 Silverado 1500 very soon. And that means it’ll be in stock and ready to roll at Bradshaw Automotive in Greer, South Carolina, before you know it.

2022 Silverado HD Adds Multi-Flex Tailgate

2022 Silverado HD | Greer, SC

For 2022, Chevrolet will add an important feature designed to maximize usefulness, versatility, and enjoyment for Silverado HD models. The Multi-Flex Tailgate, already a feature on the 2021 Silverado 1500, presents six settings for greater functionality. Easily operated from the key fob or via two buttons mounted on the tailgate, the available Multi-Flex Tailgate is a game changer for days on the job and outdoor adventures.

The Multi-Flex Tailgate operates like a traditional gate, but also offers a load stop function to help secure long items from getting loose. Reaching into the bed is easier thanks to the inner gate, which folds down, and the full-width step that can bear the brunt of 375 pounds. The inner gate also features a load stop, helping to ensure items on the second tier won’t escape while you’re on the go.

Finding a stable, safe, and clean spot to work on your laptop or spread out plans or paperwork is nearly impossible on a dusty, dirty worksite. The Multi-Flex Tailgate solves that issue with a work surface that folds out of the inner gate. You can also use the work surface to maximize vertical storage space.

Chevrolet’s 2022 Silverado HD models will be available this summer. Visit Bradshaw Automotive in Greer, South Carolina, to get a closer look at the Multi-Flex Tailgate on the 2021 Silverado 1500 or to learn more about the 2022 Silverado HD.

Here’s What We Know So Far About the Electric Chevy Silverado

2021 Chevrolet Silverado | Greer, SC

GM recently announced that Chevrolet’s popular pickup truck is going electric. With a new electric Chevrolet Silverado coming to the Chevy lineup, GM continues to pave the way for an electric, zero-emissions future with its innovative electric vehicles.

Not only will the new electric Chevy Silverado become Chevrolet’s first full-size battery-powered pickup truck, but it will also be available for a wide range of uses. Whether you opt for the retail and fleet-oriented versions of the electric Silverado, or you simply want to enjoy the thrill of driving electric in your everyday life, the Chevy Silverado EV will blend Chevrolet’s classic pickup design and capabilities with GM’s advanced electric technology.

With over 400 miles of expected zero-emissions driving when fully charged, the electric Chevy Silverado will be powered by GM’s exclusive Ultium batteries. The Ultium platform is developed from GM’s new company, Ultium Cells LLC, which is based in Lordstown, Ohio. The full-size electric truck will be built at GM’s Factory ZERO assembly plant in Michigan, the same location that produces the GMC Hummer EV and upcoming Cruise Origin. A $2.2 billion investment in the facility in 2020 marked GM’s first EV-only assembly plant that continues to change the way electric vehicles are developed and built.

Here at Bradshaw Automotive in Greer, South Carolina, we look forward to learning more about the electric Silverado in the coming months — and sharing what we learn with you!
