Press release from: Herb Connolly

Herb Connolly Chevrolet has got some good news for Worcester Chevrolet drivers looking to get their hands on the best full sized truck for the money. The 2011 Chevrolet Silverado which is now available at Herb Connolly Chevrolet, offers a staggering number of engines, trim levels, bed lengths, suspension configurations and other options and that’s just to name a few!

Need some other reasons why the 2011 Chevrolet Silverado is a must have?

1. New frames: In the quest to comprehensively redesign the Silverado HD chassis to improve durability and ride, while also supporting increased capability, engineers developed 11 all-new, fully boxed frame assemblies. The frames have increased cross sections and use more high-strength steel for greater durability, higher towing capacity and improved ride and handling throughout Massachusetts.

2. New and strong independent front suspension: A completely redesigned independent front suspension system in the 2011 Chevrolet Silverado offers up to a 25-percent greater front axle weight rating - up to 6,000 pounds (2,721 kg) front gross axle weight rating (FGAWR) - enabling a snow plow to be used on all 4WD cab configurations with the available snow plow prep package, while also supporting improved ride and handling characteristics.

3. New asymmetrical leaf-spring rear suspension: Commensurate with the Silverado HD's greater strength and capability is a rear suspension designed to support greater loads for Worcester Chevy drivers. It features a new, larger asymmetrical leaf-spring design that also contributes to improved ride and handling characteristics.

4. Segment-leading towing and payload capability: Stronger frames, suspension systems with greater weight ratings and enhanced powertrain systems contribute to the Silverado HD's class-leading towing and payload capability: an amenity that Massachusetts drivers don't need to compromise on.

5. New 6.6L Duramax diesel and Allison 1000 six-speed combination: Helping the new 2011 Chevrolet Silverado HD trucks deliver their best-in-class capabilities to Worcester drivers is a new version of the workhorse Duramax 6.6L diesel and Allison 1000 six-speed automatic transmission powertrain combination. The Duramax 6.6L is more powerful and durable and the Allison 1000 is stronger and helps enable new features, including the exhaust brake system. Together, this improved version of a proven combination is also expected to deliver segment-best fuel economy.

6. Strengthened Vortec 6.0L/Hydra-Matic 6L90 six-speed powertrain: The venerable Vortec 6.0L gas V-8 with variable valve timing returns to the new 2011 Chevrolet Silverado heavy-duty trucks, along with a strengthened version of the Hydra-Matic 6L90 six-speed automatic transmission. This combination delivers excellent performance and efficiency, with a greater emphasis on low-rpm power.

7. Exhaust brake system: A new feature on Silverado Duramax-equipped models is an exhaust brake system. This driver-selectable feature uses the turbine control of the variable geometry turbocharger and the compression of the engine to generate back pressure, slowing the vehicle without applying the brakes. It is a smart system integrated with the cruise control feature and varies the braking to account for the grade and vehicle load that Worcester Chevrolet drivers may encounter across Massachusetts.

8. Large brakes: Brake feel and performance is greatly improved with the 2011 Silverado HD trucks. The standard four-wheel disc system is completely revamped to deliver smoother, more immediate and confident-feeling performance. Four-wheel, four-channel ABS is standard on all single-rear-wheel models and a three-channel system is standard on dual-rear-wheel models.

9. Refined and capable ride, handling and steering: Longer wheelbases - ranging from 133.6 inches (3,395 mm) to 167.7 inches (4,259 mm) - and wider front/rear tracks enhance the ride and handling characteristics of the 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD, giving them a greater feeling of smoothness and control.

10. Comprehensive safety and functional technology: The 2011 Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD models have a comprehensive roster of safety features and functional technologies that include StabiliTrak electronic stability control system on all single-rear-wheel models, larger, four-wheel disc brakes with standard four-wheel ABS, available rear backup camera, segment-exclusive OnStar 9.0, and many more.

11. Lives bigger, drives better, works harder: From the available remote starting feature to the unimpeded access offered by the 170-degree-opening rear access doors on extended cab models, the 2011 Silverado HD models live bigger, drive better and work harder. The interiors are refined, with improved quietness and attention to detail, but designed for working. Numerous storage compartments provide covered access for everything from work gloves to laptops.

Finally, all 2011 Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD trucks work under the best warranty coverage in America - five-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty, plus roadside assistance, courtesy transportation and other features that provide assurance that Chevrolet backs its trucks confidently.
