Chevy Silverado Trail Boss Commercial Feat. Walter the Cat

2022 Chevy Silverado Trail Boss | Crivitz, WI

The Chevy Silverado Trail Boss is ready to hit the road, and Walter the Cat has returned for a new ad campaign to help spread the word. Here’s a look at the new truck — and the cute kitty that stars in the commercial.

Walter returns

First introduced in an ad spot during the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, Walter’s whole gimmick is that he’s a cat that acts like a dog. In the new 60-second spot, the tenacious tabby pulls a sled with a team of huskies, chases a mailman, and rescues a skier buried in snow. But his adorably impressive feats pale in comparison to the capable Chevy Silverado Trail Boss.

Meet the Trail Boss

The 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss is off-road-ready right from the factory. It boasts a fully boxed frame built from high-strength steel, along with underbody skid plates and an automatic locking rear differential. On top of that, it boasts a two-speed Autotrac Transfer Case and multiple four-wheel-drive modes, so you can drive confidently on the toughest trails. It’s high-tech, too — it comes standard with a 13.4-inch diagonal Chevrolet Infotainment 3 Premium System, complete with wireless smartphone connectivity and Google Built-In

If you’re looking for an adventure-ready, capable pickup truck, consider the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Trail Boss, available at Frank Porth Chevrolet in Crivitz, Wisconsin.

2023 Chevy Silverado EV to Debut at CES 2022

The CES 2022 conference, taking place Jan. 5-8 next year in Las Vegas, will see the reveal of the new 2023 Chevrolet Silverado EV. The reveal will take place during General Motors CEO Mary Barra’s keynote speech, during which she’ll finally give more details on the elusive electric pickup.

Chevrolet has been tight-lipped about the upcoming Silverado EV, but there are a few things we know. The Silverado EV is built on the new Ultium Platform, which includes a modular battery pack that can be stacked in multiple directions to perfectly fit an individual vehicle. Per GM, Ultium also allows for incredible driving range, potentially up to 400 miles on a single charge.

We know the Silverado EV will offer available Four-Wheel Steer. Four-Wheel Steer is perfect for off-roading or driving in any tight spaces, allowing the driver to turn all four wheels at once for an incredibly tight turn radius. This feature even improves stability and handling at higher speeds, Chevy says.

Chevy has also teased the available fixed-glass roof, an industry first in the pickup segment. The fixed-glass roof will make for my headroom, improve visibility, and will make the cab feel brighter and more spacious. The expansive roof covers the front and backseat of the Silverado EV.

Stay tuned to the Frank Porth Chevrolet blog as we wait for more news on the exciting new 2023 Silverado EV.

2022 Silverado Limited To Be Released

2022 Silverado | Crivitz, WI

Chevrolet had plans to give the 2022 Silverado 1500 a thorough refresh. The global microchip shortage has since delayed those plans. However, the refreshed truck is still in the works. In the meantime, Chevrolet is releasing a Silverado Limited model for the 2022 model year.

The 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Limited model will be available in Crivitz, Wisconsin later this year. General Motors also indicated that 2022 would be a “shortened model year.” This may mean the refreshed Silverado will be a 2023 model. Here is what you can expect from this Limited model.

The most notable changes to the Silverado 1500 Limited are in the engine lineup. For starters, the base Work Truck model will now come standard with the 2.7-liter Turbo engine while the previously standard  4.3-liter EcoTec3 V6 has been deleted entirely from the lineup.

The 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 engine will now come standard on the RST Crew Cab. In addition, this engine will be available as an option on the Work Truck model. Finally, the Duramax® 3.0-liter Turbo-Diesel I6 is an option on the LT Trail Boss trim.

Once the refreshed Silverado 1500 officially drops, it will come with the updated exterior styling, an overhauled cabin, a larger infotainment screen, and a new gear selector layout. Test-drive it when it arrives on our lot here at Frank Porth Chevrolet in Crivitz. And in the meantime, stop by to take one of the Silverado trucks in our inventory for a whirl. 

GM and Shell Partner for a Greener Future

2022 Bolt EV | Crivitz, WI

As electric technology continues to improve, more and more drivers are making the switch to electric. To help make it even easier, GM has partnered with Shell to increase access to renewable energy sources for many EV owners.

This partnership will start in Texas. This summer, Texas residents who own a GM-branded EV will be eligible to charge their EVs for free overnight. The one stipulation is that it must be between midnight and 5 am when electricity demand is at its lowest.

This is just the first step in GM’s partnership with Shell. In addition to the free charging incentive, GM and Shell are planning to make it easier for GM owners to choose renewable energy. Owners of GM EVs like the Chevrolet Bolt EV will be able to choose home energy plans with fixed rates from energy sources like solar and wind.

Along with this partnership, GM’s electric future is looking bright. The company has plans to become carbon neutral by 2040 in both its operations and products. This includes releasing 30 new electric vehicles by 2025.

If you are looking for an EV in Crivitz, Wisconsin, Frank Porth Chevrolet can help. We will help you find the Chevrolet Bolt EV so you can go green with your driving.

2022 Equinox Gets Swanky Styling | Crivitz, WI

2022 Chevrolet Equinox | Crivitz, WI

The Chevrolet Equinox is one of the bestselling vehicles in America and it’s only getting better for 2022. Chief among this model year’s updates are styling revisions that make the Equinox more stylish than ever. Chevrolet has also tweaked the 2022 Equinox’s trim structure, which should make it easier for customers to get the model with the features they want.

Trim structure changes

In the past, the entry-level Equinox was the Equinox L. That model has been eliminated from the lineup, with the LS taking over as the base model. The L was meant to be a budget-friendly pick, but its lack of driver-assist features meant that most people upgraded to the LS anyway. But the best part? The 2022 Chevrolet Equinox LS starts at $600 less than the 2021 Equinox LS, giving you even more value than before.

New styling and tech

If you put the 2021 and 2022 Chevrolet Equinox side by side, the first thing you might notice is the styling updates. Both the front and rear end have a new look including a new grille design, new bumpers, and more striking LED headlights. Additionally, every Equinox now comes with a standard 7-inch touch screen, a redesigned dashboard, automatic high beams, automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and Teen Driver functionality.

The Chevy Equinox was already a top pick for families and the 2022 model seems to be doing everything right to hold on to that distinction. Get a closer look at it at Frank Porth Chevrolet in Crivitz, Wisconsin.

For the 2021 model year, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is back — and it’s better than ever before.

Chevy Tahoe and Traverse Rival Minivan Accommodations

2021 Chevy Tahoe | Crivitz, WI

Minivans are a popular choice when it comes to family-friendly transportation. But three-row SUVs are another smart choice for modern families. According to U.S. News & World Report, the Chevy Tahoe and Traverse are two of the Best Three-Row SUVs to Buy If You Don’t Want a Minivan.

The 2020 Tahoe made the publication’s list because it’s incredibly dependable. So dependable, in fact, that it earned a perfect predicted reliability rating.

And it can seat up to nine people when the seats are upright and offer a maximum cargo volume of 94.7 cubic feet when the back rows are collapsed. That makes it a spacious choice if you have a large family that needs all that space.

The Traverse was recognized by U.S. News & World Report because of its great cabin technology. It includes a standard Wi-Fi hot spot and an available rear-seat entertainment system that rivals similar systems on minivans.

It also comes with plenty of space with seating for up to eight people. With all of the tech features, like Bluetooth® audio streaming and an optional Bose® sound system, it’s easy to keep everyone entertained and your kids quieter on long trips.

XFE Fuel Economy Package Adds Efficiency to the Chevy Silverado

2020 Silverado 1500 Fuel Economy | Crivitz, WI

The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is a bit different from other vehicles in its class with regards to fuel economy.

Chief among these features for the package is a premium soft roll-up tonneau cover. This cover does a great job protecting any tools and supplies, while also minimizing drag, making the Silverado 1500 more aerodynamic and efficient. The package also includes all-season blackwall tires.

When equipped with the XFE Fuel Economy Package and the 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 gasoline engine, the Silverado is capable of achieving an estimated fuel economy of 24 mpg on the highway and 20 mpg combined.

2020 Chevrolet Corvette Rolls off the Line

2020 Chevrolet Corvette | Crivitz, WI

The first 2020 Chevrolet Corvette rolled off the line in early February of this year. Manufactured at the General Motors Bowling Green Assembly plant in Kentucky, the 2020 Corvette has been one of the most anticipated vehicles on the market. With a distinct mid-engine design and exceptional performance, this is one sports car any auto enthusiast can enjoy.

This eighth-generation Stingray is the first ever to offer a mid-engine design, which includes an all-new LT2 V8 engine that’s available through the rear hatch window. There’s a hardtop convertible design to let you enjoy the open air, while redesigned seats are ideal for the track and road. The 2020 Corvette generates 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, which is the most powerful production Stingray in history.

“The long wait is finally over, and the new mid-engine Chevy Corvette is as good as we could have imagined. So good, in fact, that it earned a 2020 10Best award right out of the gate,” said Car and Driver’s Michael Simari. “The eighth-generation Corvette now boasts an engine behind the passenger cabin, just like the best from Porsche, Ferrari, and McLaren but at many thousands of dollars less.”

Other features include a special Z51 Package, which has larger brakes, eLSD lighting, a front splitter, and special performance tires, among other things.

Chevy Reserves Trail Boss Trim for Truck Models

Trail Boss | Chevy Silverado | Frank Porth Chevrolet

For a while, GM has been undecided whether or not they would extend the Chevrolet Trail Boss trim to their line of SUVs and heavy-duty pickups. For now, at least, the Silverado 1500 will continue to be the only Chevy to carry the Trail Boss brand name.

The Silverado 1500 Trail Boss edition is an off-road beast, coming standard equipped with the same off-road features as the Z71 Off-Road package, including hill descent control and Rancho shocks. Also included is a 2-inch suspension lift, 18-inch Mud Terrain Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac® tires, and other premium off-roading features.

Though the Trail Boss trim may not be making its way into the SUV market for now, the 2021 Tahoe and Suburban will offer a Z71 trim. These models will include 20-inch wheels, upgraded tires, and available features such as Magnetic Ride Control and Air Ride Adaptive suspension. The Z71 trim includes a front skid plate, red tow hooks, and black on black chrome exterior accents. As expected in an off-road vehicle, four-wheel drive will come standard, with a two-speed transfer case for ultimate traction and control.

As far as Chevy’s HD series of pickups go, no HD Trail Boss is in the works, but the Silverado HD Z71 Sport debuted at the 2019 SEMA show and is slated for production in 2021.

Experience the Trail Boss trim and Chevy’s other truck variations when you stop by Frank Porth Chevrolet. We’ll help you find the right rugged model to suit your outdoorsy lifestyle.
