If power and value are your priorities when selecting a new pickup truck, Chevrolet’s lineup will not disappoint. Learn more about the Chevrolet Colorado, Avalanche, and Silverado to see which Chevy pickup best suits your lifestyle.
If you don’t need your truck to do any major towing, and you want a truck that’s easy to maneuver, the mid-size Colorado is just what you need. You can have the Colorado in several different engine and cab variations. The two-door Colorado seats three, while the four-door will fit six comfortably. As far as power goes, the 185-horsepower inline-4 is great for fuel economy, as it earns 25 mpg on the highway, while the 300-horsepower V8 will allow you to tow up to 6,000 pounds. The Chevy Colorado, like all Chevrolet trucks, comes with a five-year/100,000-mile warranty for peace of mind you can count on.
If you need something a bit larger and more powerful than the Chevy Colorado, opt instead for the Chevrolet Silverado. There are several different Chevrolet Silverado models, each one offering different towing power and gas mileage. On one end of the spectrum is the Silverado 3500 HD, which that can carry a maximum payload of over 7,200 pounds and tow up to 23,100 pounds. The Silverado Hybrid, on the other hand, handles 6,100 pounds while achieving 23 mpg on the highway.
Perfect for drivers that like to have their cake and eat it too, the Chevrolet Avalanche is both an SUV and a pickup truck. All you have to do is take a few minutes to fold the rear seats and the midgate forward and you can turn the six-passenger Avalanche SUV into a full-size pickup with a 4’x8’ bed. In addition to the versatility of the Chevrolet Avalanche, what also sets it apart is its luxurious interior. Bluetooth, heated mirrors, satellite radio, rear privacy glass, and plenty of interior space come standard.

Chevrolet is making its greenest models even greener in 2013 by enhancing engine efficiency and adding more fuel-free technology. With eAssist and lithium-ion batteries, Chevrolet continues to keep it green. Here are some of the new models and innovations you’ll see at your local Chevrolet dealership:
Chevrolet has built eAssist technology into the latest Malibu ECO. The technology of eAssist increases engine efficiency, reduces fuel consumption, and cuts down trips to the gas station with:
Regenerative brakes, which convert friction from braking into energy and store it in the lithium battery.
Lithium-ion battery, which provides an extra 15 horsepower of gas-free power during heavy acceleration.
Automatic start-stop function, which seamlessly shuts off all fuel use when the vehicle is idle.
2013 Chevy Volt
Chevrolet’s 2013 Volt has an improved electric range and an even more efficient engine than its 2012 predecessor. Its electric fuel rating comes in at 98 MPGe and its gas engine delivers an extra 340 miles of range when electricity runs out. If you’re like the average American driver with a 30-mile commute, it could be a while before you visit a gas station again because the Volt can be recharged every night. Edmunds.com likes this about the 2013 Chevy Volt and calls it the best all-electric range of any plug-in hybrid on the market.
Chevrolet realizes going greener in 2013 also means offering car buyers a greener car with a more family-friendly price tag—basically, a more affordable alternative to full hybrids. The Malibu ECO is a mild-hybrid which achieves the middle-ground pricing buyers are looking for in 2013.

Anything can happen on the open road. That’s why it’s a good idea to stock your Chevy with the tools and supplies you might need in an emergency. Here are some of the items you should always keep with you in your new or used Chevrolet.
Spare Tire and Jack
There should be one in your car already, but sometimes people forget to replace a spare should it go flat after use or over time. It’s also a good idea to check that your spare is properly inflated to reduce the risk of it going flat when you need it most. Of course, having the best spare in the world won’t do you much good if you don’t have a jack to lift the car and replace the flat in the first place, so make sure you have one tucked away somewhere.
Old, Working Cell Phone
Your old cell phone is still good for making one call: to 911, that is. Carriers are required to complete 911 calls from deactivated cell phones. Having an old cell phone handy in your Chevy could be a lifesaver should your ever find yourself in an emergency situation when your new cell phone is dead.
The most common reason for a car not starting is a low or dead battery. Make sure you always have jumper cables in your Chevrolet for this very reason. Plus, having jumper cables allows you to be the Good Samaritan when duty calls.
Flares or Reflectors
It helps to have flares or reflectors onboard, should you need to make roadside repairs or prevent oncoming traffic from rear-ending your car on the highway. Consider including these among your emergency car supplies.
Having extra automotive fluids handy, like engine coolant or power steering fluid, makes a huge difference in some emergency situations. Topping off these fluids may buy you enough driving time to get to the nearest mechanic.
