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?

It’s the Chevy Silverado, the truck that’s been keeping your family safe, getting your work done and winning awards since 1999; and if it’s trusted by two armies to be the best, you can believe there’s a long list of reasons.  “Its grunt quotient excels in all versions… plus pleasantly cushy interior… designed to deliver comfort and style without compromising its workhorse capability,” said Road & Travel as it gave the Silverado both Truck of the Year and Best Redesign awards in 2007.  To mention just a few others, the Silverado’s taken…

  • 1999 – Motor Trend magazine’s Truck of the Year
  • 2001 – Motor Trend magazine’s Truck of the Year (Heavy Duty Model)
  • 2001 – Car and Driver magazine’s Best Pickup Truck
  • 2002 – Car and Driver magazine’s Best Pickup Truck
  • 2003 – Car and Driver magazine’s Best Pickup Truck
  • 2007 – North American Truck of the Year

  • 2007 – ICOTY International Truck of the Year
  • 2007 – Truckin’ magazine’s Truck of the Year

Chevrolet Sweeps Vincentric’s Red Carpet for 5 Best Value Awards

This March, Chevrolet cars proudly brought home a handful of awards for “best value” from Vincentric, including four truck categories and even the “Electric/Plug-in Hybrid Car” spot.  This is the second year the Chevy Volt won that particular award, which is “2 for 2” as the Volt has only been in production for two years.

Chevrolet trucks won “best value” in the following categories:

Vincentric has been bestowing awards of value for 8 years now, based on the following factors:

  • Depreciation
  • Fees & taxes
  • Financing
  • Fuel
  • Insurance
  • Maintenance
  • Opportunity cost
  • Repairs

The award gets special backing from Edmunds, who gave the Silverado some awards of its own:

Whether it’s from 9 to 5 or 5 to 9, Silverado keeps you ready. Edmunds.com took notice, declaring Silverado 1500 as a Lowest Cost to Own® Large Light Duty Truck and Silverado 2500 as a Lowest Cost to Own® Heavy Duty Truck for February 2012.

The 5 awards bestowed to Chevrolet and its models are a result of their lower-than-expected ownership costs given their market segment and price.   The only way to find even better values on these award-winning Chevrolet cars and trucks would be if you were in the areas of Santa Ana, Long Beach, Anaheim and Los Angeles – Mountain View Chevrolet in Upland has special deals on Chevy’s best, and you can get pre-approved online in seconds.  To see these award-winning Chevys for yourself, check out our new inventory to see this year’s blue ribbon winners; but don’t forget that Chevy’s been winning for years, and there’s just as much value to be found in these pre-owned car and truck prices you won’t find anywhere else!
