For drivers who want or need a roomy SUV, the 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe Custom trim may be the affordable alternative you’ve been waiting for. Chevrolet recognizes that, although the economy isn’t the greatest right now, car shoppers still want capable, roomy options that don’t force you to hurt your wallet. That’s where the new Custom trim comes in.

According to Cars.com, the 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe Custom is based on the LS trim, though it adds a few features. These new features include 18-inch painted alloy wheels, a chrome-accented grille, and second-row seating. While you don’t get three rows like other Tahoe trims, the Custom does come with 54 cubic feet of cargo space for all your storage needs.

“The Tahoe Custom is a response to strong customer demand for Tahoe, as well as the full-size SUV segment moving upmarket,” said Sandor Piszar, Chevrolet Trucks marketing director.

Other features on the Chevy Tahoe Custom include smartphone connectivity compatibility, a standard rear-vision camera, and standard teen driver mode. There are also up to five USB ports that make it easy to charge your mobile devices on the go. To learn more about the 2018 Chevy Tahoe and all of its trims, visit us at Stalker Chevrolet.

Chevrolet Colorado ZH2 Army Truck Goes for Testing

The Chevrolet Colorado has proven itself to be one of the most capable trucks in the industry, but now it’s facing its greatest challenge yet. The United States Army traverses some of the toughest landscapes that the world has to offer. As such, they need a vehicle that can conquer the roughest terrain imaginable. The Chevrolet Colorado ZH2 army truck is the vehicle for the job.

The Chevrolet Colorado ZH2 army truck is silent, sneaky, and tough. The model is powered by a hydrogen fuel-cell electric powertrain that’s silent and produces water as its only emission. That’s a near-180-degree turn, green-energy-wise, from the current diesel-powered Humvees the army currently uses.

The big Humvees haven’t given the army a reputation for being silent, but the Colorado ZH2 could change that. The large mud tires, silent powertrain, and near-invisible heat profile make it a hard vehicle to detect.

The prototype is currently undergoing a year of testing by the army in some of the roughest conditions imaginable. The truck will make its way to a number of army bases throughout the country as it proves it mettle time and time again.

If testing proves successful, we may very well be looking at the next generation of army transport vehicles.

We here at Stalker Chevrolet are proud to see such a capable truck undergoing testing in the field.

2019 Silverado Sneak Peek

Before a new model can hit production, it has to be thoroughly road tested in the real world. However, automakers don’t want to give away their design secrets, so they use camouflage and padding to hide the finer points of a new model while it is out on the road. While it hides the details, it also makes it obvious that it is a test model.

Recently, we got a sneak peek at the upcoming all-new 2019 Silverado. Photographers recently caught the new model out testing and were able to capture a few shots of the truck with a lot of padding. However, from the details we can see, the new truck will gain a new headlight design, the side mirrors are being moved to the doors, there is a new grille design, and a larger air dam. Many of these features will seemingly help the truck be more aerodynamic to gain a few miles per gallon.

Another interesting detail captured was a side-exit exhaust. This could indicate that Chevrolet is testing a new engine for the Silverado 1500, which could either replace one of the existing engines or be a new available option.

While we don’t know when the 2018 Silverado will officially be unveiled, the North American International Auto Show held in Detroit in January is a likely bet.

Here at Stalker Chevrolet, we can’t wait to see what the next-generation Silverado has in store.

Chevrolet RST Special Edition

Chevrolet recently announced its new special edition trim, RST, which will be available on the 2018 Tahoe and Suburban. RST, which stands for Rally Sport Truck, will be available with a 6.2-liter V-8 engine with 420 horsepower, Magnetic Ride Control, and an all-new Hydra-Matic 10L80 10-speed automatic transmission.

The RST is inspired by after-market performance parts and does away with almost all chrome trim. It comes with body-color grille surround and door handles with a gloss-black grille and mirror caps, as well as black badging. It will come with a range of other available packages to boost performance and braking.

The director of Chevrolet Truck Marketing, Sandor Piszar, said that RST is a reflection of Chevy’s ongoing effort to make the Tahoe and Suburban adaptable to every kind of driver, with “various combinations of capability, technology, and performance.” He went on to say that the RST is for “customers who want a street performance look without sacrificing capability or refinement” that still allows for increased performance.

RST will be available on the 2018 Tahoe and Suburban in fall of this year, and preliminary estimates show that the Tahoe will have a towing capacity of 8,400 pounds and will be able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in less than 6 seconds.
