Since one of the most appealing features of a pickup truck is its ability to tow more than any other class of vehicle, it makes sense that you’d want one that can live up to that promise. That’s why U.S. News recently compiled a list of the 13 best trucks for towing. Unsurprisingly, both the 2020 Chevrolet Colorado and Silverado 1500 made the grade.
U.S. News editor Nick Kurczewski praised the Colorado for its diesel engine’s remarkable balance of capability and efficiency, saying, “This motor delivers not only the best towing capacity found in a compact pickup, it’s the Colorado’s most fuel-efficient motor, too.” The engine in question is a 2.8L Turbo-Diesel that offers up to 7,700 pounds while still achieving up to 30 mpg on the highway.*
Meanwhile, the 2020 Silverado 1500 leads the pack, mostly due to its best-in-class towing capacity — 13,400 pounds — and a bevy of trailering technology. With a segment-leading 15 camera views to monitor your cargo and a segment-first Advanced Trailering System, this truck more than earns its status as the king of towing.
Whether you need to tow for work or play, Chevrolet can’t be beat. To learn more about the Colorado and Silverado 1500, contact us at Sharon Chevrolet. Or better yet, stop by in person to test-drive these two trucks for yourself.
*EPA-estimated 20 MPG city/30 highway for Colorado 2WD with available 2.8L Turbo-Diesel engine. Based on segment-exclusive features. Excludes other GM models.
The Chevrolet Suburban is the most-driven vehicle, according to a study conducted by iSeeCars.com. This new title makes sense given that the SUV is a reliable vehicle with a comfortable cabin for families to relax in.
When looking at the sales of over 2.3 million vehicles that are each 10 years old, iSeeCars found that Chevrolet Suburban models were driven more than the average. Drivers of the Suburban clocked in an average of 14,862 miles per year. This amount is 24% higher than the average.
“The Suburban is known for its expansive cargo room while comfortably seating up to nine passengers, which makes it popular for large families as well as for fleet and livery use,” said iSeeCars CEO Phong Ly.
The Chevrolet Tahoe also made the list for most-driven vehicles and came in fifth place with an average of 14,040 miles per year, which is 17.1% above the average. In the light-duty pickup truck segment, the Silverado 1500 was driven the most. In addition, the Malibu and Impala made the list of most-driven passenger cars, ranking third and fifth respectively.

Now that fall is here, it’s time to prepare your car for the cold months to come. Following these tips for autumn auto service will help ensure your vehicle is functioning properly and reduce your stress when winter arrives.
Replace your windshield wipers
If you haven’t replaced your windshield wipers in several months, fall is a good time to get new ones. Consider investing in rubber-clad blades that can stand up to rough winter conditions.
Check your battery
Don’t get stuck on the side of the road with a dead battery this winter. Instead, have your battery tested, clean the posts and connections, and make sure cables are tightly connected this fall season.
Inspect your tires
If your tires are wearing down, you should replace them now before you need them to navigate ice and snow. Also, make sure you’re maintaining the recommended pressure and getting scheduled rotations. You may even want to consider switching to winter tires.
Stock your emergency kit
Make sure your vehicle contains the items you would need in a winter emergency. Blankets, extra gloves and boots, flares, a flashlight and a shovel are just a few of the items you should keep in your trunk.
Catch up on major repairs
Consider getting any repairs you’ve been putting off. Addressing these now is better than breaking down in the middle of winter.

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado has a host of great features and a legion of loyal fans, so it’s no surprise that Chevrolet wanted an advertisement that focuses on the truck. The Chevrolet ad campaign, “Real People, Not Actors,” shines a spotlight on the 2019 Silverado by having real drivers comment on the pickup.
The “Real People, Not Actors” ad spot begins on a dark worksite, where a host leads a group of people to the 2019 Silverado. As the group looks at the truck, the darkness makes it evident just how bright the LED bed lighting is in the Silverado Durabed, with one participating remarking that the lighting “lights up the entire bed.”
Another feature highlighted in the commercial is the Durabed itself. The Durabed is both “sturdy” and “huge,” as two participants note. As part of the Durabed, the 120-volt outlet is pointed out by the host, before a cord is plugged in, dramatically igniting a streetlamp directly above the truck.
The commercial host also announces that the 2019 Silverado 1500 offers eight trim levels, which is more than any of its competitors. On cue, other streetlamps are lit, revealing the sophistication and versatility of the trims, which stand out in the night.
We at Sharon Chevrolet are proud to have the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado on our lot. Stop by for a test drive.
Every day another group of teen drivers pass their tests and take to the roadways alone. In recent years, there has been a surge in vehicle technology that helps parents monitor their teen’s driving behaviors and encourage smart roadside behavior. Chevy recently announced the news of an industry-first feature that will enforce one aspect of safe driving before the vehicle ever switches gears.
Chevy’s Buckle to Drive feature is a customizable setting that makes it impossible to shift out of park unless the driver’s seat belt is securely fastened. This simple step makes sure that not only is the seat belt buckled but it is done so properly each time.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, using a seat belt is the number one thing drivers can do to protect themselves in the event of a collision. Chevy acknowledges this reality and has now provided an option for concerned parents to ensure that their new driver is following this advice. And if you are an adult that has picked up a few lax seat-belt habits in your years of otherwise safe driving, this can be an easy way to help form a new safer habit.
Contact us at Sharon Chevrolet for more exciting news from the brand. Or stop by to test-drive one of our shiny new 2019 Chevy models equipped with Teen Driver technology.
No one likes driving in the snow; it’s stressful, dangerous, and time-consuming. But, some drivers mind it less than others, and those drivers are the ones behind the wheel of one of these winter-ready and snow-competent vehicles.
This crossover is ready for just about any weather the season throws its way. The Honda CR-V features stable suspension, a capable powertrain, and precise responsiveness, all of which will come in handy when the snow piles up.
Redesigned in 2018, the Chevy Equinox feels like it was bred for driving in the snow. The new Equinox features optional all-wheel drive and two turbocharged four-cylinder engines, so you’ll have the capability and power to blast through any level of snowfall. Plus, as an added bonus, the Equinox features Remote Start, so you can get the motor running and heat pumping before you enter the vehicle.
It’s no secret that all Subaru vehicles come with standard All-Wheel Drive. This alone boosts every Subaru model’s ability to drive in the snow. Additionally, Subaru designed its vehicles with activity in mind. This means the vehicles generally boast better clearance and handling systems, which are essential for navigating snowy terrains.
You can find a wide selection of pre-owned vehicles at Sharon Chevrolet that are great for driving through the snowy roads of Liverpool, New York.
The all-new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD is making its way closer to its rollout next year, but first we’re getting a better look at the upcoming heavy duty pickup. So far, we’ve seen the aggressive LT and premium High Country trims in detail.
The mid-range LT boasts an aggressive style with a bold grille and slick character lines. An athletic stance and upscale interior make the LT model a true sight to behold. The upcoming Silverado HD LT combines luxury and muscle for drivers who want the best of both worlds.
The premium 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD High Country recently made its debut. A conservative design and body-color bumpers create a sense of sophistication in the hefty pickup. A rather simple grille and bowtie logo further reinforce the streamlined styling. An exclusive two-tone metallic trim comes standard on the range-topping model.
An all-new gasoline V8 engine will power the upcoming pickup, though details won’t be disclosed until the full 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD reveal. Drivers have the option of selecting an updated variant of the Duramax® turbo-diesel V8 engine as well.
2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD maximum towing and payload capacities aren’t known yet. What we do know is that both values will be higher than the current truck’s ratings. And, we at Sharon Chevrolet know that these new trucks will be fantastic machines, like the rest of the Silverado line.
