NAPERVILLE, Ill., Aug. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- People all over the world rely on their full size pickup trucks to get jobs done for them and carry heavy loads over difficult terrain. They also expect these trucks to last for a long time and be economical. Customers who choose to buy a Chevy have already taken a step in the right direction and are guaranteed to have one of the longest-lasting, most economical trucks on the road. Test out a new Chevy Silverado near Chicago at Chevrolet of Naperville today.


Over 85 percent of Chevy Silverado customers use their pickup trucks to haul and tow different things, putting these vehicles to the ultimate test. With those numbers it is incredible that more than half of all Chevy pickups that were sold 20 years ago are still on the road today. One of the reasons for this is the reliability of the 5.3-liter V8 that Chevrolet has developed, tested and refined over the past 57 years.

Chevy has built over 100 million of these engines and the current Silverado and other full size pickups use Active Fuel Management to get the most gas mileage out of the engine. Active Fuel Management shuts down four of the eight cylinders when they are not needed, so that the truck saves fuel. When the truck does need the power, these cylinders kick back in.

Instead of bringing in a V6 engine with a turbocharger like other brands, Chevy has stuck with what it knows and its turned out better. The V8 offers just as good of fuel economy as a V6 from a leading competitor, but the V8 has been proven for much longer. You can take dependability and the reliability of a proven engine or test out something new, the choice is yours.

Stop in at Chevrolet of Naperville for your next Chevy truck. They offer the Silverado in many different body, cab and bed choices and have the midsize Chevy Colorado in Naperville, IL. On top of that, the dealership also has the Chevy Avalanche in Naperville, IL, another great full-size pickup.
