Alabama is known for a few things. We have the best barbeque around, as you very well know, thanks to the year of BBQ that's been going on. Here in Huntsville, AL, we have a few more claims to fame, and here in Rocket City we like to think that we know a thing or two about what makes a good truck. Luckily, the Chevy truck lineup has everything you want.

The lineup starts with the light duty truck that continues to rely on traditional strength to see the job through. The Silverado 1500 is the full-size pickup that America can't get enough of. As the fastest growing brand of the year, you know what you are getting when you are behind the wheel of the Silverado 1500. Roll-formed steel forms the body and frame of the Silverado 1500, and cargo solutions within the bed and cab are designed to make your life easier. A standard 4.3L V6 offers you the most torque in its class, with 305 lb-ft.

The other heavy hitters in the Silverado family pack a more potent punch. The Chevy Silverado 2500HD features legendary engines; from the standard 6.0L V8 to the available Duramax 6.6L Turbocharged Diesel V8, you start off with 360hp that comes standard, with only more when you select it. Up the ante with the most powerful of the family, the Silverado 3500HD has a max towing capacity of 23,200lbs.

Experience the new iteration of an old classic with the Colorado. Motor Trend's Truck of the Year is packed with technology, so you are aware everything that is going on with the pickup itself, while keeping you entertained and connected to the outside world while on the move. Check out what makes this mid-size pickup one to drive here at Landers McLarty Chevrolet. With the best deals around, we can get you into the truck you want, no matter which level of power fits you best. Come in and see the savings we get you that the other dealers just can't. Located in Huntsville, AL, we can't wait to show you a great deal on a truck.

A work truck is defined by how you use it. You need a truck with the proper payload and towing maximum in order to carry out the jobs as they come in, and in anything less than the ideal combination of performance and capability, the job cannot be done as efficiently. When it comes to a solid performance in the field and an exceptional ride quality, you cannot beat the comfort and power of the Chevy Silverado.

There are three engines available, so you can get the right amount of power and efficiency for the work you do. Choose whether you want to optimize efficiency with the V6 engine that leads its category and class for fuel efficiency, or maximum towing in the class at a whopping 12,000 lbs of towing with the 6.2L V8. You also benefit from the storage and accessibility innovations that are only available on the Silverado, like the CornerStep that is integrated into the rear bumper and the EZ-Lift and Lower tailgate. And like other new Chevy models for the 2015 model year, you have a vehicle equipped with 4G LTE WiFi, so you can stay connected when on the go. Being able to take phone calls and answer pressing questions can make all the difference in the middle of the work day, and now you can take your productivity to a whole new level.

When you sync your smartphone with the infotainment center, you can use voice command and communicate wirelessly to your phone, but it would be a moot point if you couldn't be heard above the endless noise of the pavement. Now you can revel in the relaxing cabin of the Silverado, the quietest truck in its class. Triple-sealed doors and laminated windows mean that all of the extraneous noise that can drive you mad stays on the outside of the cabin. You can listen to music, field phone calls, or enjoy the quiet.

For more information on the Chevy Silverado 1500, come in Landers McLarty Chevrolet. Come in and take the new Silverado out for a test drive around Huntsville, AL today.

If you're looking for the utmost in value from your pickup brand and truck, then we at Landers McLarty Chevrolet wholeheartedly recommend the Chevrolet brand and specifically, the Chevy Silverado.

Now, understandably, you may be thinking that we're coming from a place of bias. However, we aren't the only ones who have such commendations for the Chevrolet brand. No, actually, a neutral third party, Vincentric, has incidentally named Chevrolet the Best Value Truck Brand in America and its Silverado 2500HD, the lowest cost to own of any full-size pickup.

Speaking to the honor, John Fitzpatrick, marketing manager for the Silverado, says, "With the average age of trucks on the road now more than 11 years, we know that customers hold on to their trucks for a long time. With the lowest cost of ownership of any full-size truck in the segment, the Silverado makes it easiest on our customers to do so."1

In order to be recognized by Vincentric, a pickup must be able to excel in several measurable cost-of-ownership analytics including: depreciations, fees, taxes, financing, fuel, insurance, maintenance, opportunity cost and repairs.

"We found that Chevrolet trucks cost less to own and operate than would be expected, providing great value to truck buyers," says David Wurster, Vincentric president. "Chevrolet and the Silverado have a long history of providing high-value trucks, and the 2014 offerings continue this heritage."2

If you'd like to learn more about the Chevy Silverado, or any of the other new Chevrolet models we carry, please feel free to visit Landers McLarty Chevrolet in Huntsville, AL, any time!
