Chevy is the Truck Leader

Chevy is truly the worldwide leader in pickups. The company has been making trucks for over 100 years. From the very first truck to the modern Colorado and Silverado, every truck that rolls off the assembly line is packed full of history. Here at Blossom Chevy, we fully embrace our Chevy truck history. It is part of who we are, and it is part of what makes Chevrolet different from every other truck on the road. So, whether you have been part of the family and owned Chevy trucks in the past or this is your first time considering one, we here at Blossom Chevy want to help further connect you to the history and dependability of Chevrolet trucks.

Chevy offers more truck options than any other brand out there. Because of this, we at Blossom Chevy are confident we can help connect you with the right truck.

Are you interested in something on the smaller side? Maybe you want a truck that's perfect for the city and your weekend adventures? The Colorado is ideal for that. It's smaller but yet still powerful for all your needs. Maybe you're looking for a full-size half-ton pickup? The Silverado can trace its bloodline back to the original Chevy trucks from over 100 years ago. While the name has changed throughout the years, it still is the full-size pickup that General Motors has been producing from day one.

If, on the other hand, you need something even larger and more powerful, you'll want to consider the selection of Silverado HD pickups. The Silverado HD 2500 and the Silverado HD 3500 are excellent trucks for those next-level jobs and towing requirements. Or, if you need something even larger for your work, we can connect you with the Silverado HD 4500 or larger. Whatever you need, we'll help you get it.

Chevy Trucks History

The very first Chevrolet truck hit the streets back in 1918 with the One-Ton. At the time, it came with a flatbed and either a cowl and chassis or an express body. This bad boy used a 3.67L four-cylinder engine and put out a whopping 36 horsepower. At this time, trucks weren't really towing anything; instead, they were used for lugging gear (and people) on the flatbed. It wasn't until 1929 when Chevy started to use a larger V6. In fact, the International Series AC Light Delivery became the first truck to offer a V6. In this specific case, it uses a 3.18L V6 that not only bumped the horsepower up to 46, but it delivered an impressive 125 lb-ft of torque.

The Chevy truck continued to develop and expand. Following World War II, Chevy released the 3100 Series. This pickup used a 3.5L I6 engine that put out 78 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque. Starting with the 1967 C/K10 Series, which has continued into the Silverado line, Chevy began to offer not only an I6 engine but also a big-block V8. The I6 pickup in 67 produced 153 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque.

Of course, the true birth of modern trucks came in 1973 when Chevrolet released the C30 One-Ton Dually. This is because of the first pickup using a dual design. The size and the performance of the truck made it one unlike anything else, and yet you can directly connect this truck to not only the half-ton pickups of today but the HD trucks as well. This truck used a 5.7L V8 that produced 155 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque.

Finally, in 1999, the birth of the current legend, the Silverado 1500, came out. The Silverado name has been around longer, though, as it was used as a trim back in 1975. Chevy likes to take popular trims and spin them off into new product lines. This has happened with the Trailblazer spinning off from the Blazer. The Silverado 1500 first hit markets with a 5.3L V8 that produces 270 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque. And now, over 20 years later, the Silverado 1500 is still one of the best trucks on the planet.

2020 Models

2020 Chevy Colorado

The 2020 Colorado is one of the best Chevy trucks available and the perfect option if you are looking for something sporty and midsize, but with plenty of power to get work done. We often have customers come to us looking for a pickup that is great for both work and play, but they are nervous about getting something much bigger than what they really need; we almost always suggest the 2020 Chevy Colorado as the starting point for them. It is a great truck that can handle a lot more than you might expect and really defines what a midsize pickup should be.

The Colorado has nearly 50 cu.ft. of available cargo area, which gives you a lot of room for loading up the cab and the bed, despite it being a midsize model. You can get up to 1,578 lbs of maximum payload with the Colorado, so not only can it fit whatever you need to take with you, but it can handle the load easily too. And with an estimated 20/30 MPG in the city and on the highway with the available diesel engine, you can get everything you need done.

There are three engines available on the Colorado, which lets you get exactly the level of power you need without going overboard or coming up short. The standard is a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that offers up to 200 hp and 191 lb-ft of torque, giving the Colorado a maximum towing capacity of up to 3,500 lbs. Then there is an available 3.6L DOHC V6 engine that provides up to 308 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque, which offers up to 7,000 lbs of towing capacity. Finally, you can choose a Duramax 2.8L Turbo-Diesel engine that delivers up to 181 hp and a stunning 369 lb-ft of torque, giving the Colorado up to 7,700 lbs of maximum towing.

With all of this power and available safety features that include a forward collision alert and an available lane departure warning, the 2020 Chevy Colorado is perfect for work and play.

2020 Chevy Silverado

If you are looking for something a little bigger, with more muscle than the Colorado, then the 2020 Chevy Silverado or Silverado 1500 is where you should start. This is a full-size pickup with a light-duty design that makes it a great “middle way” between the sporty design of the Colorado and the powerful, heavy-duty design of the HD models. While the HD trucks can handle incredible amounts of work, for most people in need of a full-size truck, the standard Silverado is a great choice.

There are eight different trims and six engines available for the 2020 Chevy Silverado, plus numerous configurations of cab and bed size, so you can really customize it to be exactly what you need. The Silverado has a 4.3L EcoTec3 V6 engine that offers up to 285 hp and up to 305 lb-ft of torque with a 6-speed automatic transmission, which can have up to 2,250 lbs of maximum payload. There is also an available 2.7L Turbo engine that provides the Silverado with 310 hp and 348 lb-ft of torque, with an 8-speed automatic transmission.

You can choose a 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine with either active or dynamic fuel management, which provides up to 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque and comes with either a 6-speed or 8-speed automatic transmission. For up to 13,400 lbs of maximum towing, you can pick a 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 engine that offers 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque with a 10-speed automatic. Finally, there is a Duramax 3.0L Turbo-Diesel I6 engine that delivers 277 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque and comes with a 10-speed automatic.

Thanks to its larger size, the Silverado 1500 has nearly 90 cu.ft. of cargo area available, which, combined with its towing power, can let you haul everything you need with you. The numerous trim levels let you get exactly the truck you need and include two different Trail Boss options for going off-road, as well as the incredible sophistication of the High Country. Unless you need more towing or payload potential, the Chevy Silverado 1500 is likely the perfect full-size truck.

Despite the incredible power that the Silverado 1500 has to offer, we know that sometimes you need even more from a full-size truck, and that is where the HD series shines. The 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500HD is the first of two heavy-duty pickups from Chevrolet that are ideal if you need to be able to handle an incredible amount of work with your truck. A lot of the same options and features are available on both of them, so when deciding between the 2500HD and 3500HD, the amount of payload and towing you need really makes the difference.

The 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500HD has two engines available: both a conventional gas and a diesel option. You can start with a 6.6L V8 gas engine that offers up to 401hp and 464 lb-ft of torque, which comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission. When properly configured, this engine can give the Silverado 2500HD up to 14,500 lbs of conventional towing or up to 17,400 lbs of gooseneck towing and has a maximum payload of up to 3,979 lbs. There is an available 6.6L Turbo-Diesel V8 engine that delivers 445 hp and 910 lb-ft of torque, paired with an Allison 10-speed automatic. With this engine, the 2500HD can get up to 18,500 lbs of conventional or gooseneck towing, and has a maximum payload of up to 3,715 lbs.

Despite how hard-working the Silverado 2500HD is, you do not have to miss out on great features just because you need to get a lot done. The High Country trim, for example, includes an 8-inch Infotainment display with Navigation, a Bose premium sound system, and perforated, leather-appointed, heated driver and front passenger seats. It also has a heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel, an 8-inch digital driver display, and a wireless charging area for compatible devices. Combined with great safety features like a lane change alert with side blind zone alert and hitch guidance with hitch view, the 2500HD truly stands out among its peers.

If you need the ultimate level of power and performance, then the 2020 Chevy Silverado 3500HD is the way to go. Offering more power than the 2500HD, with the same engines and available options, the 3500HD provides you with tremendous sophistication and more muscle than most other trucks on the road.

When properly configured with the 6.6L V8 gas engine, the 3500HD can get up to 16,800 lbs of maximum conventional towing or up to 17,200 lbs of gooseneck towing. With the available 6.6L V8 Turbo-Diesel engine, however, the Silverado 3500HD has a maximum conventional towing of up to 20,000 lbs and a maximum gooseneck towing of up to 21,500 lbs. If you need even more than that, then you can choose a dual rear-wheel configuration, which takes the maximum gooseneck towing to the limit and offers up to 35,500 lbs of fifth-wheel towing when properly configured.

On top of that, a 3500HD model with dual rear wheels can offer up to 7,442 lbs of maximum payload, so whether you need to do some serious towing or load up the bed, it has you covered. For the ultimate work truck that can handle everything you need, the 2020 Chevy Silverado 3500HD is tough to beat.
