Chevrolet has always been a brand that you can rely on. Their amazing quality vehicles and modern technology advancements keep this brand above the others. Due to their dedication to service and quality, they have been able to claim both awards this year at the North American International Auto Show. The all-new Chevy Corvette Stingray and the Silverado 1500 took both spots for Car and Truck of the Year. This is actually only the third time in the Show’s 21-year history that one automaker collected both awards.

The Chevy Silverado was recognized for its available 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine which churns out over 350 horsepower. This incredible amount of power gives you unrivaled towing and hauling ability and yet switches to use only four cylinders when needed. With an estimated fuel economy of 23 miles to the gallon, this awesome truck is the best in class for any V8 pickup. In addition to this, the Silverado 1500 HD also has a perfect overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The Silverado won the Truck of the Year award with no question. The points tallied at the end of the NAIAS showed it with a leading 219 points. Second place was the Jeep Cherokee with 174 points and then the Acura MDX with just 97. This was a landslide win for this truck and for the bowtie brand. After viewing some of the great features and options of this vehicle, it’s understandable why it won.

This truck went through 13 million miles of testing which resulted in a smarter, stronger and more capable truck. The Max Trailering Package makes it easy to tow up to 12,000 pounds and includes enhancements such as a CornerStep rear bumper and removable cargo tie-downs. The technology in this truck is stellar and comes with their MyLink infotainment system which lets you stay connected to what matters to you.

Right now during Chevrolet’s Truck Month, you can rest assured knowing that you are driving away in the safest and most secure truck out there.
