Mountain View Chevrolet is providing a few inexpensive ways you can personalize your truck, keeping in mind that it’s the little things in life that can make a big difference.

Let’s get started:

  1. Floor Mats – Help keep the interior of your Chevy pickup clean with floor mats. From carpet, to vinyl and all-weather floor mats, there are a variety of options to choose from, including floor mats in various colors. Floor mat prices start around $50.
  2. Bedliner – Protect your truck bedliner from constant wear and tear with bedliner protection. Bedliner provides a protective skid-resistant coat that helps prevent scratches and other nuisances that may leave a mark on your truck’s bed. Contact your local Chevy dealership, Mountain View Chevrolet, for more information and pricing details.
  3. Tailgate Liner – Don’t forget to protect your Chevy Silverado’s tailgate! Receiving the brunt of heavy movement and lifting, tailgates can be easy targets for scratches and dents. To protect your truck’s tailgate, be sure to purchase a ribbed tailgate liner. Tailgate liners start at $50.
  4. Bed Net – If you’re always on the go and hauling items from one place to another, help keep those items secure with a Chevy Bed Net. A Chevy Bed Net provides added protection to your items with stretch shock cords that release from a stainless steel center ring. Mounting hardware is included for easy installation. Prices start at $50.
  5. Fuel Door – For $155, you can snazz up your Chevy truck with a chrome fuel door. A fuel door adds extra protection to your gas tank, while providing your truck with a stylish and customized look.

If you’re looking for additional customization options, there are several ways to personalize your truck. Before you look to purchase, be sure to consult with your local Chevrolet dealership to ensure you’re making the best choice for your pickup. Remember, small details can make a big difference!

Chevy Silverado: 5 Things You May Not Know

The truck blogs lit up on September 17, when word spread that Consumer Reports had named the Chevy Silverado 1500 its “top-rated truck.” This is another nod for the ’14 Silverado, which has received recognition for its safety rating, fuel economy and all-around performance. But despite all this attention, the Silverado may still have some secrets. Read on to see if you know these five facts about the Silverado.

2014 Red Chevrolet Silverado

Chevy started using the Silverado name in 1975. Although the Silverado truck didn’t appear on the market until 1998, Chevy began using the Silverado name in 1975. Back then, “Silverado” referred to a trim package on the C/K pickup and the Suburban. A C/K Silverado was the top of the line and featured flashy metal work on the exterior[i]. When Chevy retired the C/K in 1999, the Silverado as we know it today took its place in the line-up.

Chevy dropped the Silverado slogan “Like a Rock” in 2004 in favor of a campaign called “An American Revolution.”[ii] The “Like a Rock” campaign, based on a Bob Seger song, ran for 14 years and was enormously popular. The song even made its way into the news again earlier this year. Just last April, Bob Seger announced that he would start playing “Like a Rock” again during live shows. Seger had not played the song live for almost 30 years[iii].

Former NFL star Howie Long once appeared in a 28-minute infomercial about the Silverado. The infomercial was part of Chevy’s “Our Country. Our Truck” campaign, which used “Our Country” by John Mellencamp as its theme song[iv]. The commercials that featured the Mellencamp song subsequently inspired a handful of YouTube parodies.

Canada once ordered a military version of the 2003 Silverado, called the Milverado. The official name of the Milverado is MILCOTS, which stands for Militarized Commercial Off-The-Shelf[v].

The Boston Herald touted the ‘14 Silverado 1500 crew cab as a family car[vi]. The Herald’s reviewer took the Silverado to the beach with three kids. Size and driving comfort were factors in his conclusion that the Silverado functions well as a family car.

Long associated with American values and performance on the job, the Silverado is among the country’s best-selling vehicles. The ’14 model year adds an improved safety profile to the mix, making this truck a versatile option for families too.

The Chevy Silverado: Army-Trusted, Family-Tested

The Canadian Army uses a military version of the 2003 model and calls them “MILCOTs” or “Milverados.”  A similar, more armored model is used by the U.S. Army under the Commercially Based Tactical Truck Program,or “COMBATT,” and beat rival bids from the Dodge Ram 2500/3500, the Ford F-350 Super Duty and even the Hummer to get there.  What is it?
