Road Trip In Your Chevrolet
What better companion could you have on a spring break road trip than a fun, dependable Chevy vehicle to take you everywhere you want to go? With its reliable performance, fun connectivity technology, and advanced safety features, we at DeLillo Chevrolet don’t think you could choose better.
Chevrolet knows this as well, and that’s why they asked data scientist Randy Olson to design a spring road trip spanning all 48 contiguous states. This smart road trip hits on traditional road trip favorites, including popular cities and national landmarks. If you don’t want to commit to the 214.56 hours of driving time and 13,389 miles that the trip requires, however, Olson designed regional trips around the west coast, Midwest, and more.
While on a road trip, the last thing you want is car trouble. You want to spend time creating memories with your friends and family and experiencing new things, not time sitting on the side of the road trying to fix your vehicle or calling towing and maintenance services. Chevy has earned J.D. Power Dependability Awards for the past three years, so you can rest assured that when you set out on your road trip with a Chevy vehicle, you’re in one of the most dependable vehicles on the road. Chevy vehicles also come equipped with fun entertainment technology and state-of-the-art safety features, which will allow you to stay entertained, connected, and confident while you explore new places.
If you’re looking to find a car perfect for road trips, or your current car needs some work to be road-worthy, come see us at DeLillo Chevrolet.
NTEA The Work Truck Show
This March, Chevy revealed the eagerly-anticipated 2019 Silverado 4500HD, 5500HD, and 6500HD at the NTEA Work Truck Show. These pickup trucks are mind-blowingly capable while also being distinctly customer-oriented. Chevy wanted to create trucks that are work-ready, offering a great driving experience while also being capable of handling worksite jobs with ease. At DeLillo Chevrolet, we think Chevy succeeded with these new medium-duty pickup trucks.
Chevy thoroughly thought out what customers want in a work-ready truck, taking input from truck drivers, technicians, Chevrolet dealers, and other experts. The new Silverado is incredibly powerful, featuring a 6.6-liter Duramax diesel engine with 350 horsepower and 700 lb-ft of torque. While sitting in the driver’s seat, you will be privy to a superior driving experience, as one of the challenges Chevy was dedicated to overcoming was the fact that large trucks can be difficult to drive, in terms of maneuvering and handling.
The Silverado’s premium strength and maneuverability are matched by its smart interior that offers both superior comfort and advanced technology. The interior cabin is durable yet stylish and provides a welcome respite while on a worksite. It will also offer a fun infotainment system with Bluetooth®, Apple CarPlay™, and Android Auto™ compatibility, as well as an available 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot so you don’t have to worry about being out of range.
According to Chevrolet, the new Silverado trucks will head into production late this year, with order guides and pricing information announced this summer. Be sure to check in with us at DeLillo Chevrolet for more information.

The new 2018 Chevrolet Traverse RS has recently joined the Traverse lineup here at DeLillo Chevrolet. What sets this version of the Traverse SUV apart is its turbocharged performance and unique styling.
Under the hood of the Traverse RS lurks a power-dense, direct-injected Ecotec 2.0-liter turbo engine, which pumps out 257 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. This engine is mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission, which helps the 2018 Traverse RS achieve a fuel economy of 20 miles per gallon in the city and 26 on the highway.*
As for the design, Chevy has added features to black out the Traverse RS and give it a more intimidating stance. Black features include the grille, window trim, roof rails, and bowtie emblems. Even the 20-inch aluminum wheels on which the Traverse RS sits have a Dark Android finish.
Standard technology on the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse RS includes Chevrolet MyLink with an eight-inch touchscreen, tri-zone automatic climate control, a Bose premium 10-speaker audio system, a power liftgate, remote start, Keyless Open with extended-range Remote Keyless Entry.

Truck enthusiasts have been awaiting the debut of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 4500HD and 5500HD for some time now, but they won’t have to wait much longer. With a debut slated for March, the medium-duty models will appear at the Work Truck Show 2018. To generate even more hype, Chevrolet unveiled some teaser photos prior to the event.
The Chevrolet Silverado 4500HD and 5500HD teaser images show off a larger front clip. The chassis and suspension fit that of a much stronger truck than the existing Silverado models, and rightly so given the all-new model’s capability. Some styling cues from the current Silverado trucks, such as the headlights, will be very much the same on the new pickups.
The Work Truck Show 2018 runs from March 6th to the 9th and serves as the North America’s largest truck show. The all-new Silverado medium duty models will arrive with regular or crew cabs paired with two- or four-wheel drive. There will also be a number of wheelbases and weight ratings available, making the upcoming pickups some of the most versatile in the industry.

Last month, Chevrolet announced that it would be auctioning off the very first 2018 Chevrolet Corvette Carbon 65 Edition coupe at Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale, Arizona. In doing so, Chevy and parent company General Motors will be working with the George W. Bush Presidential Center to support the Bush Center’s Military Service Initiative.
It’s only fitting then that former president George W. Bush will also sign the new Corvette Carbon 65.
The auction will be held at 4:30 p.m. PST on January 20, 2018.
What is the Military Service Initiative? In short, it serves to raise money for post-9/11 veterans and their families as they transition to civilian life, including helping the veterans find purpose-filled careers and heal from the psychological wounds they might have gained during wartime.
The effort makes sense for General Motors, which currently employs more than 6,000 veterans. On top of that, more than 50,000 GM retirees have served in American armed forces.
The Chevrolet Corvette Carbon 65 Edition coupe will be limited to just 650 units and will add a number of exterior elements and interior appointments that serve to make the Corvette look more like the Corvette Racing C7.R. To learn more about the special edition, contact DeLillo Chevrolet.
This fall, Chevrolet celebrates 100 years of pickup trucks here in the United States. The very first pickup that Chevy produced had wooden seats and no doors and offered just 36 horsepower. It wasn’t until 1999 that Chevrolet unveiled the Silverado to replace the C/K pickups. The Silverado has been a mainstay in the truck market ever since, joined more recently by the smaller Chevrolet Colorado.
To celebrate one hundred years of Chevy trucks, the American automaker has announced Centennial Editions for both the Silverado and Colorado. The 2018 Chevy Silverado and Colorado Centennial Editions will be sold exclusively on the Z71 models in Centennial Blue.
In addition to the historic blue color, the special edition models will feature heritage bowtie emblems as well as 100 year badges throughout the bodies and interiors.
“The Silverado and Colorado Centennial Editions are a result of collaboration between Chevrolet Design, Engineering and Marketing, to commemorate the history of Chevy Trucks,” remarked Rich Scheer, Chevrolet Trucks director of Exterior Design. “Both vehicles offer our most enthusiastic fans a way to demonstrate their love for Chevy Trucks and celebrate the Chevy Trucks Centennial with us.”
