The 2021 Chevrolet Colorado is getting some significant updates that will make this midsize truck even more exciting. All trim levels will receive new styling on the front and back ends and Chevrolet is paring down the trim level offerings.
In 2021, the base trim level on the Colorado will be the Work Truck model, which means you will get more standard features right from the start. Chevrolet says that with the new front-end design, each trim level will have a more distinct look. On the back end of the Colorado, the rear bowtie on the tailgate has been replaced with the word “Chevrolet” embossed into the metal.
Another addition to the Colorado’s looks will be a new available Sand Dune Metallic exterior color. This will be an option on the Colorado Z71 and ZR2. The off-road-oriented ZR2 model will also feature a wide grille design with an open “Chevrolet” badge across the front. This model will come standard with stylish red row hooks.
Like previous model years, the 2021 Colorado will offer three impressive engine options. The standard engine is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 200 horsepower and 191 lb-ft of torque. Next up is a 2.8-liter turbocharged diesel that delivers 181 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. Finally, a 3.6-liter V6 offers 308 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque.

The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and Colorado recently earned top spots on U.S. News & World Report list of the 16 Trucks with the Best Gas Mileage. The turbodiesel powertrain on the Silverado 1500 scored especially high, though the turbocharged gasoline four-cylinder engine also earned a place. The Colorado turbodiesel and four-cylinder engines also made the list.
The 3.0-liter turbodiesel engine offered on the 2020 Silverado 1500 scored number one of the U.S. News list thanks to its impressive rating of 33 mpg on the highway and 23 mpg in the city.1 This powertrain is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission, and it generates 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque.
“Its huge boost in torque helps the Silverado return the best fuel economy estimates in the full-size pickup truck segment,” according to U.S. News & World Report writers Steven Loveday and Liana Madrid. “In addition, when properly equipped, the Silverado with the turbodiesel engine can tow up to 9,300 pounds.”
The 2020 Colorado also scored high marks on the U.S. News report, thanks to a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine or an available 2.8-liter Duramax turbodiesel. The four-cylinder engine is paired with a six-speed transmission, getting 20 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.2 The turbodiesel has an impressive 30 mpg on the highway.3

The 2020 model year marks a momentous occasion for the Chevy Corvette line — for the first time, the Corvette Stingray is being built as a mid-engine production model, making it the fastest and most potent entry-level Corvette since the sports car launched over 65 years ago.
To add to the celebration, the new Corvette Stingray was recently named the 2020 MotorTrend Car of the Year.
“It’s an honor for the Corvette team to receive this coveted award from MotorTrend against the best the industry has to offer,” commented Tadge Juechter, the Corvette executive chief engineer. “Our design and engineering teams spent several years sweating the details to deliver the first mid-engine Corvette. To have a third party validate our hard work makes it all worthwhile.”
The new impressive Chevy Corvette Stingray can sprint from 0 to 60 in just 2.9 seconds when equipped with the Z51 Performance Package. Its 6.2-liter Small Block V8 LT2 engine unleashes 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque.
Ready to drive home in your own 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray from Bradshaw Automotive? You’ll have to wait a little bit longer. Production is slated to begin in February 2020 at the General Motors Bowling Green Assembly Plant in Kentucky.
The new Chevy Silverado earned a high honor at the 2019 SEMA Show. The iconic Silverado was named Truck of the Year by SEMA judges. They graded trucks based on their business opportunities for aftermarket accessorizing using five different categories for scoring.
The new Silverado 1500, which boasts a wide range of engines — including a new diesel engine — and the redesigned Durabed that offers more cargo space than any other truck in the industry, earned the Truck of the Year title on November 4, right before the SEMA Show officially kicked off.
“The SEMA Show is where the newest and most innovative aftermarket products are seen first,” remarked Mike Spagnola, SEMA vice president of OEM and product development. “SEMA Show exhibitors are the innovators and experts who drive the $45 billion industry. Knowing what they believe are the best vehicles for accessorization helps to forecast trends.”
At the show, Chevy brought along multiple Silverado models from across its generations to demonstrate how customizable the model has always been. For the current model year, Chevy also brought the Silverado HD Z71 Sport Package and Silverado Redline Edition models to showcase possible variants of the Silverado truck.

It’s the capable country truck vs. the sporty and aggressive urban ride — 2020 Chevy Silverado Special Editions are now available. Chevrolet recently unveiled the Midnight and Rally Editions of the 2020 Silverado, and the one you choose will depend upon where you spend your time.
The Midnight Edition is black on black: from grille to badges to bumpers, exhaust tips and the off-road assistance steps with just a bit of red on the recovery hooks. The LT Trail Boss and Custom Trail Boss trims both offer the Midnight Edition, which comes with a lift and off road package, as well. The Midnight Edition can be ordered on the Custom Trail Boss trim when powered by either the 5.3-liter V8 engine paired to a six-speed automatic transmission or the 6.2-liter V8 engine with 10-speed automatic transmission. To get the Midnight Edition on the LT Trail Boss, drivers will need the 6.2-liter V8 and 10-speed automatic transmission.

The Chevrolet Equinox, the well-equipped, family-friendly and stylish compact SUV, is offering drivers greater peace of mind behind the wheel by upping its game in terms of active safety features for the 2020 model year. Many of the automaker’s advanced safety features, which were previously available as options, are now standard on the 2020 Chevy Equinox.
Included in the now standard suite of safety technology are systems such as:
- Automatic Emergency Braking automatically applies the brakes if an obstacle is detected in front of the car and a collision is about to happen.
- Forward Collision Alert warns the driver to an impending impact.
- Following Distance Indicator lets the driver know if the car is getting too close to the vehicle in front.
- Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning alerts the driver if the car drifts out of its lane.
- Forward Automatic Braking applies the brakes when necessary.
- IntelliBeam headlamps automatically dim the headlamps from high to low beam when an oncoming car is identified.
Today’s drivers are embracing driver assistance technology more and more, and Chevy is keeping up with the demand, as evidenced by the safety-equipped 2020 Chevy Equinox, available at four trim levels — L, LS, LT and Premier.
Test-drive the 2020 Chevy Equinox at Bradshaw Chevrolet.
At the Guangzhou Motor Show, Chevrolet unveiled an all-new three-row crossover that looked both familiar and new. While the new crossover resembled the two-row Chevrolet Blazer that has already gained popularity in the States, the new crossover boasted an additional row of seating.
Now we have confirmation that the concept will soon become a reality, and we have a name for it: the 2020 Chevrolet Blazer XL. While the three-row Blazer XL will be available in China starting in 2020, it leaves plenty of room for speculation about a forthcoming US variant.
The all-new Blazer XL might look simply like a Blazer with an extra row of seats, but the Blazer XL is actually 5.5 inches longer than the current 2019 Blazer. Although Chevrolet already has a three-row SUV in the form of the Chevrolet Traverse, the Blazer XL serves as a middle ground, offering three rows of seating without being as large and bulky as the Traverse.
The Blazer XL answers the call for a downsized three-row crossover that doesn’t give up too much interior space making it the perfect SUV for the Chinese market, where the Traverse isn’t sold because of its large size.
We hope to have the Blazer XL at Bradshaw Chevrolet when and if it becomes available in the United States. For now, check out the 2019 Blazer and 2019 Traverse here at Bradshaw Chevrolet.
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.
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.
