Chevrolet Announces Centennial Editions for Silverado and Colorado

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.”

Helpful Tips As You Prepare for Thanksgiving

Helpful Tips As You Prepare for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is fast approaching, and while the holiday is meant to be a slow-paced, family-filled time to reflect on what you are grateful for, the reality is that you will be running around like a chicken—or turkey—with its head chopped off. Here are some easy tips to help you prepare for Thanksgiving.

  • Start thawing, early.

    Buy your turkey in advance and stick it in your freezer. Doing so will ensure you get the plump bird of your Thanksgiving dreams and don’t end up leaving the supermarket emptyhanded on November 22nd. But if you are freezing it, you will need to allow plenty of time to thaw. When completely frozen, a turkey will need a day to thaw for every four pounds.

  • Make a schedule and assign jobs.

    Stay organized. Draw up a cooking and entertaining schedule, and give everyone in your family jobs. Ask Aunt Karen to bring the mashed potatoes, and make sure your spouse knows his or her job is to help and not just watch football.

  • Try to enjoy the day.

    After all your hard work of cleaning and cooking, take some time to enjoy the food and relax with a drink and your family.
