What You Need to Know About the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado

The all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado is scheduled to hit the market this year. The upcoming pickup boasts impressive capability and quite a few styling changes to appreciate.


The Chevrolet Silverado, soon to be available at Bill Walsh GM Superstore, features best-in-class cargo volume thanks to its increased width. It also features 12 fixed and nine movable tie-down points. Lockable in-bed storage bins are also available if you are constantly on the go. A class-exclusive power up and down tailgate arrives for the 2019 model year as well.


When push comes to shove, the Chevrolet Silverado will offer increased toughness compared to top competitors. The bed features higher strength steel for better damage resistance. The upcoming model has undergone extensive testing. In total, it’s seen seven million miles of real-world testing. Additionally, more high-strength steel and some aluminum bring the 2019 Silverado in at 450 pounds less than previous models.


The Chevrolet Silverado will feature a whopping six, yes, six, engine options for the 2019 model year. V8 engines will feature Dynamic Fuel Management that can increase fuel economy. A 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine will also arrive for the model year.


Available in eight trim levels, the all-new Chevrolet Silverado will feature a model for everyone from workers to luxury-loving drivers. More rear seat room also ensures passengers will be more comfortable.

We at Bill Walsh Superstore can’t wait to see this powerhouse drive onto our lot.

Future of Chevy Trucks | Ottawa, IL

Take a Look at the Future of Chevy Trucks

The future of Chevy trucks is looking bright. In 2009, during the economic downturn, Chevrolet left the commercial truck segment. Now, it has announced that it will be making a comeback for the 2019 model year.

New Silverado to come.

At the upcoming Work Truck Show in March, Chevrolet will unveil the new Silverado medium-duty pickups. These trucks will be sold as 4500 and 5500 chassis-cab models.

Chevrolet has said these new trucks were built from the ground up and are not based on any of its existing trucks. These trucks will be aimed at commercial buyers and fleets and can be up-fitted to meet a variety of needs with different boxes and beds.

Variety of Options.

However, just like the rest of its truck lineup, the 4500 and 5500 models will come in regular and crew cab models with a variety of wheelbases and capability ratings. The trucks will be powered by a Duramax diesel engine and Allison transmission combination.

Chevrolet will begin production of these new trucks in Springfield, Ohio, late this year, and they are expected to go on sale shortly after that right here at Bill Walsh GM Superstore. We can’t wait to see what kind of innovative features Chevrolet has incorporated into these new Silverado models.

2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 | Ottawa, IL

2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 to Get Hennessey Treatment


The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is set to become one of the most powerful production cars to ever hit the pavement. Its standard 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine already produces 755 horsepower and 715 lb-ft of torque, but that isn’t enough for some enthusiasts. Hennessey Performance is already working on getting even more power out of the monstrous engine.

The Texas-based performance shop already has a few upgrade packages in the works. The lowest planned package is the HPE850, which pushes total engine output to 850 horsepower. That’s enough power to run from zero to 60 mph in as little as 2.6 seconds.


The mid-range HPE1000 package pumps those numbers up to 1,000 horsepower and 966 lb-ft of torque. That kind of power delivers a top speed of more than 220 mph and a 0-to-60 mph time of just 2.5 seconds.

The high-end HPE1200 package brings total engine output to a massive 1,200 horsepower and 1,066 lb-ft of torque. Properly equipped Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 models will be able to deliver a 0-to-60 mph time of just 2.2 seconds, putting it on par with some of the quickest production cars ever created.

We here at Bill Walsh GM Superstore can’t wait to see the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 in person!

Chevrolet Cranks up Driving Dynamics for Sixth-Generation Camaro

We’re getting unbearably close to May 16, the day when the sixth-generation Camaro will finally be unveiled at Belle Isle Park in Detroit. Chevrolet has even lined up an entire special event, all anchored around the big reveal, which will be the culmination of the day. Fortunately, we expect the new Camaro to really live up to all that hype—especially after all the new design and performance tweaks we’ve seen.

For example, the Camaro now features a 28% more rigid body and the awesome new Drive Mode Selector. The extra tight body gives the Camaro the most advanced driving dynamics ever, with incredible steering and suspension systems resulting in the best handling possible. The Drive Mode Selector, for its part, gives you options between Snow/Ice, Tour, Sport, and Track modes—although the Track mode is only available on SS models.

“We wanted to build on the flexibility of the current Camaro ZL1, which is great for grand touring, commuting, the drag strip and track days,” said Aaron Link, Camaro lead development engineer. “The new Camaro will be even more adaptable, with up to eight vehicle attributes adjusted to fit a driver’s preference.”

Come see us here at Bill Walsh Chevrolet to learn more about the Camaro and its updated technologies and design today.

Chevy Colorado’s Performance Earns It Truck of the Year Award

We at Bill Walsh Chevrolet were thrilled to hear the new Colorado was named Motor Trend’s Truck of the Year. Despite having over ten different competitors for the title, the Colorado won in an astonishing unanimous vote.

“After days of testing, hundreds of miles on the road, and our most rigorous truck testing program to date, our editors unanimously selected the Chevy Colorado as our 2015 Truck of the Year,” said Edward Loh, Motor Trend’s editor-in-chief. “Colorado is a smart, capable, and refreshingly honest truck.”

According to Chevy, the judges were particularly impressed by the Chevy Colorado’s performance. The model comes with a stellar 3.6-liter DOHC V6 that’s perfectly paired with a six-speed automatic. The result generates over 300 horsepower. Not only that, the Colorado gets 26 highway mpg. No wonder Motor Trend said the Colorado makes a statement about fuel efficiency for trucks.

With all this and more, it’s no wonder the Colorado is everyone’s top pick.
