Chevrolet Unveils Texas Edition Silverado (in Texas Naturally)

May 9 2013, 12:19pm CDT | by

Same package will be offered in other states minus the Texas Edition emblem

Trucks are very popular in many parts of the country, but no state favors trucks more than Texas. This fact is undeniable when you consider that many of the new pickup trucks unveiled that go on sale all around the country are first seen in Texas. Such is the case with a new special edition Silverado that Chevrolet has unveiled.

The new special edition Silverado is called the Texas Edition and it was unveiled this week in San Antonio. The Texas Edition features custom badges and 20-inch wheels as well as a trailering package. The special edition truck is powered by a 5.3-liter V8 engine producing 355 hp and capable of getting up to 23 mpg on highway.

Texas is a huge and very important market for all automotive manufacturers who produce full-size trucks. Chevrolet says that one out of every six full-size pickups sold in the country are sold in Texas. The Texas Edition gets all of the other improvements, of the 2014 Silverado 1500 models including a new wider, refined interior and exterior, and more. The same package will be offered in other states, but will be called the Custom Sport package and won't feature the Texas Edition badges.

How To Ruin A Corvette Stingray, By SEMA And The KISS Frontman

Nov 4 2014 8:45pm CST | Source: Jalopnik

I think the show cars from SEMA only really work when they go all-in. The ridiculous shaggin' wagon and sword-filled concepts from Scion? You're doing it right! The ultra-conservative paint jobs on the Chevrolet cars ? You ...

Filed under: Motorsports, SEMA Show, Coupe, Chevrolet, Racing, Autoblog Black Chevy introduced the fourth generation of its COPO Camaro at the SEMA show today; another limited run muscle car that should set drag racing fans' mouths to salivating.

SEMA: Chevrolet gives us a Sonic for show and one for go

Nov 4 2014 3:57pm CST | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Aftermarket, SEMA Show, Hatchback, Chevrolet Amongst the treasure trove of tuning that Chevrolet has brought to SEMA this year, this pair of Sonic hatches is perhaps the most accessible. With one car tweaked for show and the other go, both halves of the SEMA ethos are nicely represented. The Sonic Performance Concept has been fitted with the company's Performance Stage Kit, meaning cold-air induction for the 1.4-liter turbocharged engine and ...

2015 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible: First Test Numbers with GM’s In-House Octo-cog Automatic

Nov 4 2014 3:28pm CST | Source: Car and Driver

No sports car should have chrome wheels. The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible you see here does. It also has an automatic transmission, GM’s new in-house designed and -built eight-speed unit, which replaces last year’s six-cog piece carried over from the C6 Corvette. The new transmission has two things going for it: First, it has more speeds in an era where more is more, and second, ordering it doesn’t requi ...

Filed under: Coupe, Performance, Videos, Chevrolet When a sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum opened up in Bowling Green, KY and gobbled up eight important examples of the American sports car in February, videos almost made it look like the hole picked the perfect spot to do the most damage to as many vehicles as possible. None of the cars made it away unharmed, but some were luckier than others. The Skydome sinkhole quickly became a national sensation, and Ch ...

Love Guns: Jimmie Johnson’s SEMA Corvette Is More KISS-tastic than Paul Stanley’s

Nov 4 2014 2:52pm CST | Source: Car and Driver

It’s not SEMA without eleventy-jillion styles of rolling stock, booths stocked with scantily-clad ladies who may or may not have other gigs in the Las Vegas “hospitality” industry, and, of course, good old Yankee V-8 power. The last item is, after all, the fundament upon which the show was founded in 1967. An era before VTEC. Hell, it was an era before CVCC. Thusly, at the intersection of the Chevy small-block, NASCAR, and good ol’ fashioned Sin City glitz, we find Paul ...
