Award contributes to Chevrolet being named Best Value Truck Brand

Chevrolet has been named the Best Value Truck Brand in America, according to data analysis firm Vincentric. The Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD also won the Vincentric Best Value in America award, and the Silverado family of full-size pickups boasts the lowest cost to own in this segment. The national recognition means something for local drivers, as well. Corry, Erie, Warren and Jamestown, NY-area residents may be happy to discover that they could save money over the long run by owning a Silverado.

“The average truck should be able to stand the test of time for more than a decade,” said Robert Crotty at Crotty Chevrolet Buick. “The Vicentric award affirms to truck lovers in the Corry, Erie, Warren and Jamestown, NY area that the Silverado provides customers with the expected reliability that should come with a vehicle of this caliber.”

Vincentric analyzes a vehicle’s cost-of-ownership through eight different measures: depreciation, fees and taxes, financing, fuel, insurance, maintenance, opportunity cost and repairs. Vincentric awards the Best Value in America Award using an analysis comparing ownership costs to a vehicle’s market price.

Silverado is the most dependable, longest lasting pickup on the road. It offers the best pickup coverage in America, including 2-year/24,000 mile recommended scheduled maintenance and a 5-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty.

2013 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is Capable, Dependable and Efficent

2013 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab

 With a broad range of body styles and proven, fuel-efficient powertrains, the 2013 Silverado 1500 now available at Crotty Chevrolet Buick in Corry, PA,  can tackle just about any job a truck owner can imagine – from hauling equipment and a crew to a job site to towing a camper for a family vacation.

Reflecting the importance of low cost of ownership to full-size pickup customers, Silverado continues to offer proven V-8 power with an EPA highway estimate of 21 mpg for mainstream 2WD or 4WD models, and a 22-mpg highway estimate for the Silverado XFE.

Silverado’s capable, efficient powertrains have helped make it the most dependable, longest-lasting full-size pickup, backed by a five-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty.

Silverado 1500 offers a full lineup of pickups to meet almost any need, including WT, LS, LT, XFE and LTZ models, as well as the unique Silverado 1500 Hybrid – the industry’s only hybrid full-size truck. Silverado 1500 models are available in three cab styles – regular, extended and crew cab – as well as three cargo box lengths: 5 foot 8 inches (short), 6 foot 6 inches (standard) and 8 foot (long).

Powertrain grade braking is now included in all six-speed automatic transmissions. This feature reduces brake rotor temperatures 100 degrees Celsius on grade tests by downshifting transmission gears, thereby reducing brake applications on long downhill conditions.

Cylinder Switch Off Delivers Advantages to Chevy Silverado

Four cylinders deactivate to save fuel during light-load driving

Full-size pickups are unique, both in the jobs their owners ask of them and how long customers expect them to last. So for the Chevrolet Silverado and other full-size trucks, General Motors improves the fuel efficiency of its mainstream 5.3-liter V-8 engine by switching off four of the cylinders when they aren’t needed.

More than 85 percent of Silverado customers use their pickups to tow or haul. Some truly put their trucks to the test, moving large trailers over long distances, such as in the blistering heat of west Texas and the biting cold of Alaska’s Prudhoe Bay. These customers expect their trucks to be economical and they expect them to last.

Fact: More than half of all full-size Chevy pickups sold 20 years ago are still on the road.

“The Silverado has a well-earned reputation as the most-dependable, longest-lasting full-size pickup truck on the market,” said Robert Crotty of Crotty Chevrolet Buick. “No competitor can match the V-8 engines under the hood. They’ve been developed, tested and refined over 57 years and more than 100 million engines.” [Read more…]
