Chevrolet Colorado Redesign is Looking Good

The Chevrolet Colorado redesign was unveiled in October at the 2019 Method Race Wheels Laughlin Desert Classic. Following the race, the Colorado ZR2 also showed its new face at the SEMA show in Las Vegas in November.

One key element of the redesign is a bigger distinction between each trim. For the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado, different trims set themselves apart with unique front- and rear-end details. Each trim gets an updated Chevy “bowtie” emblem on the front and “Chevrolet” embossed on the rear tailgate.

For the WT and LT trims, the front-end shows off an all-new gold Chevy bowtie logo, while the Z71 features a black bowtie logo. All three of these trims also get refreshed center bars and lower front skid plates and front fascias.

The off-road ready Chevy Colorado ZR2 model boasts unique details that highlight its rugged capability. This trim gets a new flow-through front fascia with “Chevrolet” in bold letters. It’s designed with a more aggressive appearance, plus better visibility. This, along with things like Multimatic DSSV™ position-sensitive dampers and a 2-inch suspension lift, enhance the driver’s off-road experience.

The Chevrolet Colorado redesign sure is looking good, don’t you think? It will be a while before the 2021 model makes its way to Terryville Chevrolet, so stay tuned for more updates on the truck’s availability!

Chevrolet Trailblazer Makes Its Triumphant Return

2020 Trailblazer | Terryville, CT

In the last few years, Chevrolet has been no stranger to resurrecting some of its most popular vehicle nameplates like the recently revived Blazer. Now, Chevrolet is getting ready to reintroduce another classic Chevrolet vehicle name. Starting in 2020, the Chevrolet Trailblazer will make its triumphant return.

The 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer will join the automaker’s growing line of crossovers and SUVs. Positioned between the Chevrolet Trax and the Chevrolet Equinox, the Trailblazer will be an affordable option for drivers who want to access the utility of an SUV.

The Chevrolet Trailblazer will not be lacking in advanced vehicle tech, coming standard with Front Pedestrian Braking, Automatic Emergency Braking and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning. Drivers can also upgrade the Trailblazer safety suite with tech like Adaptive Cruise Control and Rear Park Assist.

The Trailblazer also doesn’t cut corners when it comes to performance. In fact, the new Trailblazer will debut with an RS trim level, pairing a sporty exterior with an even sportier powertrain.

Unfortunately, additional details surrounding the new Chevrolet Trailblazer are a bit sparse at the moment. More information is sure to be revealed during the upcoming months, and you can read all about that new Trailblazer information right here on the Terryville Chevrolet blog.

2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Diesel Engine Wows Experts

We’re still eager to learn about the 3.0-liter Duramax® Turbo-Diesel engine that will grace the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Diesel sometime this year.

We’re still eager to learn about the 3.0-liter Duramax® Turbo-Diesel engine that will grace the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 sometime this year. Chevy has thus far been mum on its diesel engine offering — apart from saying that it’ll be the most capable and efficient in the segment — but some experts around the industry have already gotten the scoop on the new Duramax®. What they’re saying shouldn’t come as much of a surprise: It’s great.

Car and Driver’s Joey Capparella writes that the 3.0-liter Duramax® Turbo-Diesel generates 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque according to an official order guide and specs sheet. That puts the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Diesel well ahead of the 250 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque produced by the turbo-diesel of its blue oval-adorned competitor. What’s more, its makes more torque at a lower rpm — 1,500 rpm compared to the competition’s 1,750 rpm.

It’s still not yet known what the 3.0-liter Duramax® Turbo-Diesel will produce in terms of towing, payload, or fuel economy, but it’s a fair bet that it’ll stand up pretty well against its competition in the segment.

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Diesel will be available soon at Terryville Chevrolet. Watch this space for more information as it comes.

Winter Destinations in Connecticut

CT Winter Hikes

While many people head to warmer destinations in the winter, others prefer the fun of a winter playground. If you fall in this second group, you need to check out these winter destinations in Connecticut.

Visit the Shore

The beautiful shoreline can be enjoyed year-round. In the winter, visit a resort like Saybrook Point Inn and enjoy relaxing spa services matched with delicious food and breathtaking views.

Go Skiing

In Connecticut, we can almost always guarantee snow in the winter. This means, it is a great place to hit the slopes. Try one of the state’s great ski resorts including Ski Sundown, Mount Southington, Mohawk Mountain, and Powder Ridge Mountain Park & Resort.

Go to the Aquarium

Go underwater without getting wet with a visit to one of Connecticut’s aquariums. The Maritime Aquarium is located in South Norwalk and features marine animals from the Long Island Sound. The Mystic Aquarium, further up the coast, features Beluga whales, African penguins, and seals.

Tour a Museum

Connecticut has a wide range of museums to choose from. We particularly like the New England Air Museum in Windsor Locks. It has three hangars with more than 80 aircrafts from all periods of aviation history.

Now you know what to do around Connecticut this winter, start thinking about what you want to drive there in. Why not a new car, truck, or SUV from Terryville Chevrolet?

Tips for Protecting Your Car from Road Salt

Car Covered With Snow

Although road salt does wonders for making snow-covered roads drivable again, it does a number to the undercarriage and side panels of your car. If left to fester, the corrosive substance will rust and chew away at the metal, which could be dangerous. Keep your car rust-free and protected from corrosion by following these road salt protection tips this winter.

  1. Pre-treat your car: Be ready for winter even before it hits. Give the whole vehicle a good wash and wax to shield it from salt, and have the undercarriage treated with an oil solution that does the same thing.
  2. Watch where you drive: Avoid getting close to snow plows, puddles of water, and piles of snow in parking lots. All of these places are filled with salt.
  3. Wash your vehicle: After a snowstorm passes and the plows return to their posts, head to a car wash to clean off the salt. Look for a place that offers a thorough under-spray.

According to the DMV, the most susceptible places on your car to salt damage are the exhaust system, muffler, coil springs, subframe, and hydraulic brake system. Pay particular attention to these areas washed when protecting your car from road salt.

If your car needs maintenance or repairs done this winter, bring your car to the Terryville Chevrolet service garage. We’ll gladly make sure your ride is ready for miles to come.
