The editors at WardsAuto revealed the 2019 Wards 10 Best UX list, which honors vehicles with user-friendly technology. Thanks to its intelligent driver-assist features and infotainment system, the 2019 Chevrolet Blazer earned a place on the list.
The WardsAuto editors drove 23 vehicles on their daily commutes when selecting vehicles for this list. The editors assessed the usefulness of the vehicles’ technologies and specifically looked at safety equipment, display screens, voice control, navigation and smartphone integration.
The editors appreciated the infotainment system in the 2019 Blazer. The system’s 8-inch touch screen was praised for its high placement on the dash and its easy-to-see icons. The SUV also has the Marketplace app for convenient shopping.
The OnStar4G LTE Wi-Fi connection earned praise for its reliability. Plus, the SUV’s HVAC vents were notable for being easily adjustable and allowing you to select the optimal temperature and fan speed.

GMC CarbonPro™ adds durability, functionality and more to truck beds. The GMC
Sierra CarbonPro™ Editions are available on the 2019 Sierra AT4 1500 and Sierra
The CarbonPro™ bed is both strong and scratch-resistant, so
it can handle heavy loads. When compared to traditional steel beds, the
CarbonPro™ bed weighs 25% less, taking off around 60 pounds from the vehicle’s
mass. Despite its lower weight, the bed increases the cargo volume by 1 cubic
The CarbonPro™ bed also has indentations that allow you to
conveniently transport bikes. Plus, at the front of the bed, there are two
additional tie-down locations, which make it easier to secure cargo.
Thanks to its durable design, the bed lets you save on
spray-in bedliners and rear wheelhouse liners since they’re no longer needed.
Overall, the payload for a truck with a CarbonPro™ bed is at a minimum of 59
pounds higher, so you can carry more for large jobs.
CarbonPro™ will be more widely available on the 2020 GMC Sierra AT4 1500 and Sierra Denali 1500. We at Fuller Chevrolet GMC Truck encourage you to take the Sierra AT4 1500 and Sierra Denali 1500 out for test drives to see how the CarbonPro™ bed can benefit you.
The Chevrolet Silverado is already a popular and impressive model, thanks to its powerful performance and capability. Now, Chevrolet is introducing the all-new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD, which has all the fantastic features of past models and more.
For the 2020 model year, the exterior of the Chevrolet
Silverado HD has new standard towing mirrors to make towing a breeze. The
mirrors have a forward-facing spot lamp, side-view mounted cameras and a
The truck’s bed has also been improved. The BedStep system makes
it easier for drivers to gain access to the bed. The available 120-volt power
outlet, available automatic two-speed transfer case and power up-and-down
liftgate also enhance the bed.
Two strong powertrains are available for the 2020 Silverado
HD. The standard 6.6-liter gasoline V8 engine pairs with a six-speed automatic
transmission to reach 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque. For an immense
amount of power, the 6.6-liter turbodiesel V8 engine pairs with a 10-speed
automatic transmission to achieve 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque.
We at Fuller Chevrolet GMC have proudly added the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD to our lot. Take the truck out for a test drive and try out the innovative new features for yourself.
Chevrolet has been helping to protect teens on the road with Teen Driver technology. Now, Chevrolet is adding the all-new Buckle to Drive feature to Teen Driver as a way of reminding teens to fasten their seat belts before driving.
Seat belts are an important safety feature in vehicles. While
it’s the law to buckle up, many people don’t, especially teens, which can be
dangerous. That’s why Buckle to Drive is standard on the 2020 Chevrolet
Colorado, Malibu and Traverse.
Tricia Morrow, Chevrolet safety engineer, says, “My hope is
that Buckle to Drive will help guide more young drivers to wear their seat
belts and encourage positive conversations among teens, their peers and
Buckle to Drive is integrated into the already-existent Teen
Driver system, which lets parents monitor their teens’ driving. This allows
parents to see what their teens do well and what they can improve on. With
Buckle to Drive, teens are unable to shift out of park for up to 20 seconds if
they don’t wear their seatbelts. Furthermore, if teens press their foot on the
brake pedal before they’re buckled up, audible and visual alerts will remind
them to fasten their seat belt.
We at Fuller Chevrolet GMC Truck care about the safety of you and your family. We encourage you to take a test drive and ask us about vehicle safety features.
Chevrolet just keeps on giving us more and
more reasons to love their vehicles.
The most recent reason? Two of their trucks,
the 2019 Chevy Silverado and the 2019 Chevy Colorado, recently ranked on the
U.S. News and World Report’s list of “Best Trucks for Families in 2019.”
The 2019 Chevy Colorado earned its place on
the list for a variety of its amenities. Critics highlighted its impressive
lineup of available engines, its swath of advanced technological features, its
comfortable interior, and its smooth overall driving performance. To keep
passengers happy and entertained, the 2019 Colorado even comes standard with
Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, and Bluetooth® Streaming.
The U.S. News and World Report judges also
lauded the 2019 Chevy Silverado for its spacious and family-friendly qualities.
They reported that this Silverado 1500 is “the best full-size truck you can buy
for your family.”
Both the Silverado and the Colorado come
standard with the Teen Driver system. Teen Driver helps parents to keep an eye
on young drivers’ roadside habits, while enabling them to limit volume and
maximum speed settings. Chevy has also equipped both models with a host of
driver-assist technologies, including Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Change
Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, and Adaptive Cruise Control.

General Motors has been focusing efforts on
the Mexican market, expanding its already-hefty consumer base. After launching
the redesigned Chevrolet Silverado and Cheyenne in Mexico just a short while
ago, GM has also brought the all-new GMC Sierra to the country, fulfilling its
goal of bringing the next generation of the pickup truck to the Mexican market
within the first quarter of 2019.
However, Mexico is only getting three models from the Sierra trim lineup: the SLE Regular Cab, AT4 Crew Cab, and Denali Crew Cab. All models will be produced at the GM Silao plant. AT4 and Denali models will hit the market first, though the SLE Regular Cab model will soon begin production. Even with the limited number of models available, the GMC Sierra will offer features for a variety of lifestyles — the SLE Regular Cab is focused on practicality and capability, the AT4 is optimized for off-roading power, and the Denali is a range-topping luxury truck.
The AT4 and Denali trims of the all-new GMC
Sierra launched in Mexican markets on March 30. The Sierra SLE Regular Cab will
follow suit after it completes production at the factory in Silao. With two
powertrain options and more cabin and storage space than other offerings on the
market, the GMC Sierra is sure to appeal to the consumer base in Mexico.

Pickup trucks are one of America’s most
popular vehicle types, but within the truck segment, there’s one configuration
that’s not such a big seller: trucks with manual transmissions. That’s part of
the reason why GM is phasing out the manual transmission option on the Chevy
Colorado and GMC Canyon this year.
Both trucks were originally offered with a
six-speed manual transmission paired with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder manual
transmission. Per GM, the consumer demand for this configuration was just too
low for the automaker to keep offering it.
Now, for the 2019 model year, WT models of the
Chevy Colorado and the GMC Canyon will have a six-speed automatic transmission.
At higher trim levels, drivers can pair the six-speed automatic transmission
with a 3.6-liter V6 engine or a 2.8-liter four-cylinder diesel engine. At these
trims, drivers can also select the available eight-speed automatic
If you’re a fan of manual transmission trucks, it’s understandable if you feel a tinge of sadness at this news. However, we’re not so upset about it here at Fuller Chevy GMC Truck. Modern trucks offer plenty of performance-enhancing technologies that pair well with automatic transmissions to deliver a more engaging driving experience. Experience the contemporary performance of automatic-transmission trucks when you stop by our dealership to test-drive a new 2019 Colorado or Canyon model.
Chevrolet made waves at the 61st annual
Daytona 500 this weekend when the brand brought the first-ever Chevrolet
Silverado pace truck to the track. Trucks have never before been used as the
opening pace car for the race, meaning the all-new 2019 Silverado made its mark
on history last month when two-time champion Dale Earnhardt, Jr. drove it
around the track.
The pace truck, equipped with a 6.2-liter V8 engine
under the hood, churned out a maximum 420 horsepower. However, that wasn’t the
most powerful Silverado to make its way to Daytona Beach. The new 2019
Chevrolet RST also debuted on the race track as part of the NASCAR Gander
Outdoors Truck Series. Based on the Chevrolet Silverado TrailBoss trim, the RST
is one of the most award-winning pickup trucks on the track to date.
The weekend of Feb. 13-15 was an exciting one
for NASCAR fans overall, but especially for the Chevrolet pickup truck lineup.
The event enabled the new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado pace truck to reach a wider
With a range of powerful engines and
off-roading features, there’s plenty of options to make the Silverado more
powerful and fun to drive. Stop by Fuller Chevrolet GMC Truck to experience the
Silverado truck firsthand.
The GMC Sierra 1500 debuted a refreshed design
last year, and now its big brother is next in line for an upgrade. The 2020
Sierra Heavy Duty pickup truck will feature many of the added technologies
found on its smaller sibling, but with all the capability and toughness
associated with the heavy-duty truck segment.
Some of these technologies included in the redesigned
GMC Sierra HD are the ProGrade Trailering System, rear-camera mirror, and
MultiPro six-function tailgate. Drivers who pair the exclusive trailering
system with the 6.6-liter Duramax diesel engine will find their truck capable
of towing up to 30,000 pounds. The engine option, mated to a 10-speed Allison
transmission, churns out 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque.
More information is still forthcoming about the GMC Sierra HD. We eagerly await information on a new gasoline engine, which is reportedly on the way. A video featuring the 2020 Sierra Denali HD equipped with the fifth-wheel towing package showed it hauling a 225,000-pound, 80-foor yacht, hinting that we may see a huge increase in towing capacity in the near future.
The new GMC Sierra HD will also see the
inclusion of new 2020 AT4 models, GMC’s off-road truck lineup. While the AT4
brand has been offered on the Sierra 1500 before, it will soon extend to the
2020 GMC Sierra HD.
If you’re interested in getting your hands on the next-gen Sierra 1500 or the 2019 Sierra HD let Fuller Chevrolet GMC Truck know.
All Wards 10 Best Engines must be available in a car for priced
under $64,000, produced in the U.S., and that shows significant improvement
over previous model years. The winners are determined by a variety of factors,
from horsepower to technology to fuel economy to how loud an engine is.
Wards was so impressed with the Silverado’s 6.2-liter V8
because of its use of Dynamic Fuel Management, a technology that improves fuel
economy by reducing or increasing the amount of power delivered by an engine
depending on the current driving situation. DFM constantly works to determine
how much power is needed and adjusts seamlessly 80 times per second, using
anywhere from two cylinders to all eight.
The 2019 Silverado is the first to use Dynamic Fuel
Management as opposed to Active Fuel Management, which alternates between four
cylinders and eight cylinders, compared to DFM’s 17 possible cylinder modes.
With the engine’s 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, the new Silverado delivers incredible fuel economy without giving up the slightest bit of performance. Find it at Fuller Chevrolet GMC Truck.
