Chevrolet Reveals Exciting 2022 Silverado Redesign

Chevy has introduced the redesigned 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, including more tech, more customization options, and the first-ever Silverado ZR2.

The new Silverado 1500 delivers fully revamped interiors for all trim levels LT and above, including a new instrument panel and a standard 13.4-inch diagonal color touchscreen. These trims will also get standard Google built-in for access to Google apps such as Maps and Assistant.

Chevy has made updates to the exterior as well. A new front fascia is accompanied by daytime running lamps with walk up and walk away functions. And two engine options, the 2.7-liter Turbo High-Output and the 3.0-liter Duramax® turbo-diesel, are more powerful than on the outgoing model.

The most exciting thing about the 2022 Silverado, though, is the addition of the ZR2 trim. The ZR2 has made the Chevy Colorado one of the best off-roaders on the market, and now the Silverado gets to join the ranks, with a standard 6.2-liter V8 engine, Multimatic DSSV™ dampers, and an upgraded suspension.

The Silverado ZR2 is packed with smart off-roading tech like Terrain Mode, a calibration you can easily switch into that allows one-pedal rock crawling. Special tires, skid plates, front bumper, front and rear e-lockers, and even springs work together to make the Chevy Silverado ZR2 the perfect truck for hitting the trails.

Looking forward to checking out the new Silverado 1500? You won’t have to wait long — it’s expected to arrive this spring here at Fuller Chevrolet GMC Truck in Rockland, Maine.

2022 Chevy Silverado HD Adds Innovative Multi-Flex Tailgate

Chevrolet Silverado HD | Fuller Chevy GMC Blog | Rockland, ME

Chevrolet’s newest innovative truck feature, the Multi-Flex tailgate, debuted last year on the Silverado 1500. Now, the 2022 Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD will offer this handy six-function tailgate as an option for heavy-duty pickup buyers as well.

The Multi-Flex Tailgate includes half a dozen different functions designed to improve loading, unloading, and access for the Silverado HD’s cargo box. The inner gate provides a standing work surface and has a load stop that prevents stacked items from sliding out of the bed. When the inner gate folds into a large step, it has a weight capacity of 375 pounds. You can then fold the inner gate down for closer, easier access to the bed.

The Multi-Flex Tailgate’s primary gate also includes a load stop to keep extra-long items from items. And as with any traditional tailgate, the primary gate folds down so you can easily load your Silverado HD.

With the addition of the innovative Multi-Flex Tailgate, the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado HD helps you work smarter, not harder. You can simply activate the Multi-Flex Tailgate configurations with your key fob or two buttons on the tailgate. The instrument panel even includes a power tailgate button for easier control.

Test the functions of the Multi-Flex Tailgate — and the rest of the 2022 Silverado HD — for yourself when you visit Fuller Chevrolet GMC Truck in Rockland, Maine.

U.S. News Names the Chevy Silverado 1500 and Colorado Among the Best Trucks for Towing

Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and Colorado Among Best Trucks for Towing | Fuller Chevrolet GMC | Rockland, ME

Both the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and the Chevrolet Colorado were recently named to the list of the 13 Best Trucks for Towing. Compiled every year by U.S. News and World Report, this list considers the towing capability of every truck on the market, calculating which is best for those who demand top-tier performance when towing and hauling. Given their legacy of quality, it’s no surprise the 2020 Silverado and Colorado each earned a spot on the list.

The 2020 Colorado will tow up to 7,700 pounds when equipped with an impressive 2.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. This is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, offering the best towing capacity among any midsize truck on the market. Plus, it’s remarkably efficient, which saves you money at the pump.

The Silverado has an impressive 13,400-pound towing capacity, which is also best in its class for light-duty full-size trucks – including the Ford F-150 and Ram 1500. The Silverado 1500 has an optional 6.2-liter V8 engine that generates a whopping 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. This is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission, while features such as four-wheel drive, a Max Trailering Package, and twenty-inch wheels also improve performance.

Chevrolet also offers several trailering safety systems on newer model years. The Technology Package comes with up to 15 camera views to make it easier to hitch a trailer and to see around your vehicle as you reverse. There’s also Trailer Sway Control, Hill Start Assist, and Auto Grade braking, and even an available app to make trailering easier.

Here’s Why GM Pickups Rule the Market

Why GMC Pickups Rule the Market | Fuller Chevrolet GMC Blog | Rockland, ME

GM trucks are laps ahead of the competition thanks to the longstanding popularity of the GMC Sierra and the sudden resurgence of the Chevrolet Silverado. GM has solidified its status as the best manufacturer of pickup trucks no matter your needs.

While competitors such as Fiat Chrysler’s Ram and the Ford F-150 have respectable popularity, the reputation of GM trucks outstrips them. The sales of the GMC Sierra outpaced those of the Ram, and impressive 2020 sales have moved the Chevrolet Silverado past both the Ford F-150 and the Ram to join the Sierra and give GM the crown in the pickup market.

A manufacturing transition led to lower sales for GM in early 2019. The new truck architecture developed by GM may have slowed down production, but despite the hiccup, GM still manufactured 807,923 full-size trucks throughout the entire year.  A total of 197,743 full-size trucks were built by the auto manufacturer in the first quarter of 2020, giving it a lead over Ford.

GM trucks have earned a reputation for reliability, strength, and versatility. Want to see why the Chevrolet Silverado and the GMC Sierra have become the nation’s most beloved trucks? Contact us to learn more about these outstanding models.

Check Out the Updates Coming to Medium-Duty Silverado Trucks | Fuller Chevrolet GMC Truck Blog | Rockland, ME

The medium-duty commercial trucks from Chevrolet were already versatile and powerful. And with new updates to the 2021 Silverado 4500 HD, 5500 HD, and 6500 HD chassis cab trucks, the most capable trucks on the road have just become even better.

Some of the things that made these medium-duty trucks impressive were their 50-degree maneuverability, the ease of maintenance thanks to their forward-tilting engines, and connectivity features like Apple CarPlay® and Wi-Fi® to make your truck into a mobile office.

The newest features for next year’s trucks include things like a new maximum gross combined weight for better hauling capacities. It will be up 23 percent from the 2020 model, jumping from 23,500 pounds to a massive 37,000 pounds. The mechanical locking rear axle will also provide better handling on loose and slippery worksite surfaces.

Extended mirror arms will help with visibility, making maneuvering of long or wide upfitted trucks easier. The new Silverados also boast upfitting updates. The shortest wheelbase models now have longer axle-to-end-of-frame options, which allow for more upfit possibilities.

The engine has some new features. An auxiliary switch bank is available for six more upfit switches. And its power take-off capabilities are accessible from the right and the left side, adding ease and convenience.
