Suburban RST Performance Package Available in 2019

A Chevrolet Staple.

Did you know that the Chevrolet Suburban is the longest continuous-use nameplate in American automotive history? The Suburban name was first used in 1935 on a vehicle designed to be a family-friendly carry-all station wagon. While the Suburban’s purpose has never changed, its design and mechanics have evolved with time. Learn more about the Suburban RST Performance package that will be coming soon.

Coming Soon.

The Suburban is currently in its 11th generation and is getting an exciting new option for the 2019 model year. Later this summer, customers at Bill Walsh GM Superstore will be able to opt for the Suburban RST Performance Package. This package will add a 6.2-liter V8 under the hood to give the Suburban 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. The engine will be paired with a new 10-speed automatic transmission.

To complete the performance feel, the package also includes a Magnetic Ride Control suspension along with numerous available performance upgrades such as six-piston Brembo brakes and a Performance Dual-Side Exit Borla exhaust system.

Top Notch Package.

“When you want to hustle, the Suburban RST with the Performance Package offers high levels of acceleration, braking, and road-holding grip,” said Eric Stanczak, chief engineer for Chevrolet full-size trucks. “When you want to relax, it is very refined, with exceptional ride comfort and interior quietness.”

Dealership Retrofits New Chevy Silverado as Classic Cheyenne Super 10

Timeless.

Chevy models are timeless, a claim supported by a dealership’s recent efforts to bring back a 1970s Cheyenne Super 10.

Blake Greenfield Chevrolet Buick in Wells, Minnesota, is making headlines thanks to efforts by the staff to convert a Chevy Silverado into the classic 1970s pickup. This “retrofitting” gives a new Silverado a classic look that makes it stand apart while still giving the driver modern amenities.

Dealership owner Blake Greenfield says the inspiration for the old-school truck project came when he got a delivery for a Silverado decked out in a Woodland Green color that gave it a particularly retro look. From there, Greenfield and his staff decided to convert an entire truck using decals, paint, and more.

Retrofitted.

The retrofitted Chevy Silverado has metal Cheyenne badges added to the fenders, Big 10 logos on the bed, and noticeably lifted suspension. It also has white wagon rims with a distinctly 1970s look.

A photo of the throwback truck made the rounds on social media, bringing in attention from all around the country. As a result, the dealership decided to start offering retro Silverado makeover packages for $5,995 — a small price to pay for such a big helping of enjoyable pickup truck nostalgia.

Chevy Chevelle

Chevy Chevelle

If you know your cars, then you know the Chevy Chevelle is a classic. It has evolved over the years from the Chevelle to the Malibu, but we’ll always love its classic form. Check out some of the Chevelle’s history below.

 

1964 – 1967

During these years, the very first Chevelle premiered. It came in lots of variations to make everybody happy, from two-door coupes to convertibles, four-door sedans, and station wagons. It came with plenty of power too, with a V8 engine being offered in each body style.

 

1968 – 1972

The second generation Chevelle brought with it some updates. It swiftly became “America’s most popular mid-size car” and went through body style changes. In 1969, Chevy even developed a steam powered concept Chevelle.

 

1973 – 1977

The body and chassis of the Chevelle went through major changes in 1973. Then, in 1975, it got major updates with the Chevrolet Efficiency System. It gave the Chevelle even more power and efficiency than its predecessors.

 

1978

After the Malibu versions of the Chevelles became more popular, the Chevelle officially changed its name in 1978; that’s how it became the Malibu of today.

 

You can check out a Malibu here at Bill Walsh GM today to try to get that old Chevelle feeling.
