2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Trail Boss Greer, SC

Whether you want a truck for weekend getaways around South Carolina or hard work in Greer, we all know that the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is the king of pickups. What you may not know is that its Trail Boss trim levels — the LT Trail Boss and Custom Trail Boss — are some of its most popular variants.

LT Trail Boss

If you’re looking for a member of the Silverado lineup that effortlessly balances rugged appeal with high-end amenities, it doesn’t get much better than the LT Trail Boss. On one side of the scale, it features an adventure-ready 2-inch suspension lift with the Z71 Off-Road Package, a 120-volt power outlet in the bed for tools or lighting, and a standard 5.3-liter V8 engine that belts out 335 horsepower. On the other, it boasts luxuries like a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with the Convenience Package and a massive collection of driver-assistance features with the Safety package.

Custom Trail Boss

The 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Custom Trail Boss delivers some stellar off-road capabilities. It sports the same 2-inch factory suspension lift as the LT Trail Boss, as well as a set of 18-inch wheels with Goodyear® Wrangler DuraTrac® Mud Terrain Tires, the Z71 Off-Road Package, the Trailering Package and more. If you’re a tech-head, fear not — the Custom Trail Boss still comes standard with convenient additions like the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System.

Whatever you plan to use your truck for, the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Custom Trail Boss and LT Trail Boss are stellar options for your work, recreation, and family needs. Check it out in person with a test drive at Bradshaw Automotive in Greer.

Chevrolet Silverado Hailed Among Easiest Vehicles to Repair

2020 Chevrolet Silverado - Greer, SC

With a fervent fan base of loyal owners, a reputation for top-tier reliability, and best-in-class V8 power, the Chevrolet Silverado is one of the most popular pickup trucks in America. As if the beloved truck needed any more resume padding, the Silverado family of vehicles recently received major kudos for its ease of maintainability.

Per U.S. News & World Report, the Chevrolet Silverado is among the top 10 Easiest Cars to Maintain and Repair. Easy maintainability is a big plus for truck owners, as having an easy-to-repair vehicle means you won’t experience long waits and expensive bills for parts due to slow supply chains or hard-to-find parts.

According to John M. Vincent and James MacPherson, writers for U.S. News & World Report, the length of the Silverado’s generations contribute to ease of maintenance. “The models aren’t fully redesigned as often as many vehicles, so there tends to be plenty of repair parts available,” the experts stated. They also credited the truck’s passionate, knowledgeable fan base, which makes it easy to get advice on caring for your truck. Other contributing factors to the Silverado’s high reliability include a spacious, uncomplicated engine compartment and common parts with other popular Chevy vehicles, such as the Tahoe and Suburban.

The Bradshaw Automotive service department in Greer, SC, boasts a staff of factory-trained technicians. Our experts will help your truck go the distance.  Shop with Bradshaw Automotive today to get behind the wheel of the easy-to-maintain Chevy Silverado.

This feature is available in the LT trim and  standard on the LTZ and High Country trims.

 

Work Truck, Custom, and LT trims offer a new available auto-dimming rearview mirror that shows a limited video display of the truck’s cargo bed.

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.

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.

Showcasing Chevy’s MLB Sponsorship with the Comerica Chevrolet Fountain

Silverado Midnight Edition

Chevy is celebrating its sponsorship of the MLB by putting a Corvette and Silverado right behind center field at Comerica Park in Detroit. Tigers fans were thrilled to see the redesigned Comerica Chevrolet Fountain, which puts two of Chevy’s favorites on display for an entire season. After hours of hoisting the cars in place with a special crane, they’ll now be visible for more than 3 million expected visitors.

According to Chevy, the Corvette Z06 and Midnight Edition Silverado were specially chosen to represent the brand this year. Both represent Chevy’s commitment to quality, highlighting rugged capability and high-octane performance.

Corvette Z06

“As the Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball, what better way could Chevrolet show our love of the game than by giving our vehicles a bird’s eye view of our hometown team?” asked Paul Edwards, vice president of Chevrolet marketing. He goes on to say that, “We like to think of these vehicles as the Chevrolet cheering section to drive those centerfield home runs.”

The fountain also has a host of water displays and sound effects for any time a player from the home team hits a homerun. We at Bradshaw Chevrolet just hope they don’t put any dents in the two display models.
