2014 Silverado Scores a Safety First for Trucks

New Chevrolet Silverado crew cab receive first five-star scores under new rating system

2014 Silverado Score a Safety First for Trucks

The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is the first pickup truck to receive the highest possible five-star Overall Vehicle Score for safety since the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration changed its New Car Assessment Program for the 2011 model year.

NHTSA only tested the crew cab models of Silverado. Chevrolet expects crew cab models to account for 60 percent of their 2014 light duty full-size pickup truck sales.

“Our customers are looking for state-of-the-art safety when purchasing a vehicle,” said Robert Crotty, VP for Crotty Chevrolet Buick. “The 2014 Silverado’s unmatched combination of safety systems, we’re confident that the 2014 Silverado will meet the needs of Northwestern Pennsylavania and Southwestern New York area drivers.”

“Safety is as important to truck buyers as it is to car buyers,” said Gay Kent, GM general director of Vehicle Safety and Crashworthiness. “Silverado sets a benchmark for pickup truck safety by offering a full array of advanced features designed to protect occupants before, during and after a collision.”

Silverado offers a fully boxed frames, extensive use of high-strength steel, and several segment-exclusive safety features are available, including Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning, and Safety Alert Seat.

  • Safety Alert Seat warns the driver of potential traffic danger using directional vibration pulses from the seat cushion. The patented warning approach is tied to all of the on-board crash avoidance systems.
  • Forward collision alert technology helps prevent frontal crashes by alerting the driver when the truck is closing in on a vehicle ahead too quickly, giving him or her additional time to react and avoid a crash.
  • Lane Departure Warning technology alerts the driver when the truck drifts over a lane line when traveling at least 35 mph.
  • Rear Vision Camera with Dynamic Guidelines allows the driver, when in reverse, to view objects directly behind the vehicle via the radio screen in the center stack, allowing for easier parking and backing maneuvers.
  • New, standard lap belt pretensions in the front-seat outboard safety belts.
  • Six standard air bags and 360-degree sensor system, including dual-stage frontal air bags, head-curtain side-impact air bags with rollover protection, and seat-mounted side-impact air bags.
  • Trailer-sway control that works with StabiliTrak to provide the driver with additional assistance when towing a trailer. When it senses trailer sway, it intervenes with braking and/or reduced engine power to bring the trailer under control.
  • Four-wheel, four-channel, antilock disc brakes (ABS) that help provide straight, more controlled stops by preventing wheel lock-up in most road conditions.
  • OnStar is available, using GPS and cellular phone technology to automatically call for help in the event of crash. OnStar service also includes MyLink mobile apps, which offer vehicle information and OnStar services via the customer’s smartphone.

Top 10 Reasons Why Silverado is Summer’s Perfect Pickup for Corry, Warren, Erie and Jamestown, NY Drivers

2014-Chevrolet-Silverado-LTZ-071-medium

The all-new 2014 Chevrolet Silverado – now available at Crotty Chevrolet Buick – has been re-engineered to be stronger, smarter and more capable, making it the perfect pickup for hitting the road this summer. Crotty Chevrolet and Chevrolet knows that Corry, Warren, Erie and Jamestown, NY-area drivers taking road trips need more than just extra trunk space, which is why Silverado offers something for all passengers.

“The 2014 Silverado has everything local families’ need to have a wonderful summer vacation,” said Robert Crotty of Crotty Chevrolet Buick. “Its combination of efficiency and capability will help drivers save money and enjoy conveniences that enhance the overall functionality of the vehicle mile after mile.”

From hood to hitch, here are the top 10 reasons the Silverado is well equipped and capable to exceed Corry, Warren, Erie and Jamestown, NY-area drivers’ expectations on the roadways this summer:

  1. No need to stop for directions. Drivers can stay on course with Chevrolet MyLink and OnStar. Simply choose a destination and an OnStar advisor will send turn-by-turn directions directly to the in-dash touch screen.
  2. Ditch the mixed CD. Energize your ride with a road-worthy playlist. The MyLink system includes Bluetooth for phone streaming and enough USB ports and outlets to support multiple devices, making it easier to enjoy your music on the road.
  3. Forget the days of the dead cell phone. Stay charged up with a new 110-volt outlet and cord management system which enables you to leave your cell phone charger plugged in for easy access when it’s needed and concealed when it’s not.
  4. Store snacks and water for the road. The front door panels have integrated pockets perfect for snacks, drink bottles, or travel guides. The rear panels also have room for a typical 20-ounce bottle.
  5. Spend less time stopping for gas. The redesigned 2014 Silverado is aerodynamically enhanced to reduce drag, giving drivers greater fuel efficiency on the highway.
  6. Stretch out. Passengers can enjoy plenty of legroom, even in the backseat. Thanks to new sculpted seatbacks, rear seat passengers enjoy about two inches more legroom and the ease of entering and exiting through wider rear crew cab doors.
  7. Sleep it off. Passengers can enjoy a quiet nap thanks to Silverado’s new inlaid doors. This new design, combined with triple door seals, helps to reduce wind noise and turbulence, quieting the interior of the cab.
  8. Secure travel necessities. With Silverado’s new Smart Pickup Box and four built-in cargo tie-down provisions, your items remain safe and secure on the road. The new CornerStep bumper and handholds also provide easier access to climb in the box for loading and unloading.
  9. Tow your boat, camper, trailer, and more. Silverado’s 5.3 L EcoTec3 V-8 and stronger chassis provide the durable towing capability, up to 11,500 pounds, that you need for hauling on long road trips.
  10. Be on the safe side. Travel companions stay safe with Silverado’s two available active safety technologies – forward collision alert and lane departure warning. These features, new to Silverado, warn you when you’re at risk of colliding with another vehicle or leaving the lane.

Chevy Pickups 101: Busting Myths of Truck Aerodynamics

2014 Silverado gains fuel economy, quietness for Corry area drivers

Silverado 2014

 The all-new 2014 Silverado full-size pickup truck spent more development time in a wind tunnel than any Chevrolet pickup before it, resulting in design changes that benefits Corry, Erie, Warren and Jamestown, NY area drivers in both fuel efficiency and interior quietness.

To achieve improved airflow, aerodynamic engineers examined every millimeter of the truck to find areas of improvement, debunking some popular myths along the way.

To study the way air passes over, under and around the Silverado, engineers used General Motors’ state-of-the-art Aerodynamics Lab, a 750-foot-long tunnel through which a 43-foot-diameter fan powered by a DC electric motor with the equivalent of 4,500 horsepower can generate winds of up to 138 mph.

“The engineers at Chevrolet are always looking for ways to improve the vehicles our customers love,” said John Crotty of Crotty Chevrolet Buick. “Their aerodynamic advancements are just one reason why the 2014 Silverado will be the most fuel-efficient V-8 pickup in the Crotty Chevrolet Buick showroom.”
