What Is a Differential on a Car or Truck?

A differential, when one is talking about vehicles, is a mechanical piece of the car, truck, or SUV which allows the powered-wheels to turn at different speeds. This would be the front wheels in front-wheel-drive, the rear in rear-wheel drive, and all wheels on all-wheel drive. This is necessary because when taking turns the wheels need to go different distances, and if they both always moved at the same speed you would end up damaging your tires and possibly other mechanical parts.

Why Is a Locking Differential A Good Thing

While in general driving you want your wheels to be able to spin independently for comfortable turning, this can result in a loss of traction in some circumstances. If one wheel slips on ice, the differential may continue sending power to that wheel, causing it to spin, while the wheel that has not slipped may have less power.

Also if one wheel gets stuck, but the other is free (like what might happen when off-roading in mud or over rocks) then the differential might continue sending power to that wheel, making it spin wildly, while not really helping you get out of the mud.

This allows drivers to have better traction, and can be extremely helpful either for getting out of mud and snow, climbing rocks on the trail, or maintaining traction in a snow storm.

While a driver shouldn’t keep their differential locked in highway driving, it can be very useful when off-roading, or in some high-performance driving situations. Some vehicles that feature locking differentials include off-road models of the GMC Sierra and Chevy Silverado, and the 2017 Chevy Camaro ZL1.

Classic Silverado colors vs. Special Silverado colors

Chevy’s Silverado is one of the best-selling pickup models in the world. And we all love to look at the unique colors a model comes in. Currently, the Silverado comes in nine different paint schemes, three of which are only available at an extra charge. Read more to get brief descriptions on each paint color.  

Available colors for the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Colors available at an extra charge: Siren Red Tintcoat, Deep Ocean Blue Metallic, Iridescent Pearl Tricoat

These specialized paints offer the most unique and aesthetic schemes available, with the latter only being available on Crew Cab models. Depending on where you stand on the importance of truck color, the extra charge is certainly worthwhile.

Oldies are goodies. There is nothing more classic than a red pickup truck, and the Red Hot scheme is just that—hot. Silver Ice Metallic offers a more subdued look, while Summit White and Black bring a classic, monochromatic look, enough to satisfy anyone.

New in 2017: Pepperdust Metallic, Graphite Metallic

These colors were never available prior to 2017. Pepperdust Metallic doesn’t sound like much of a color, but its closet resemblance would be pewter. It is a neutral, almost Earth-toned paintjob that looks as classy as any choice. The Graphite Metallic, however, is more striking. It is similar to Black, but is more bold and clean.

Flashback Friday: The History of the Chevrolet Silverado

The Chevy Silverado is an iconic, extremely dependable and capable vehicle in today’s full-size truck market, but it has a long history rooted in the history of Chevy trucks going all the way back to 1918. The Silverado is just the latest incarnation of quality. For today’s Flashback Friday, we’re going to take a look at the history of the Chevrolet Silverado.

1988 – The Chevrolet C/K Revolution

The history of the Chevy Silverado begins slightly before the actual nameplate arrived. The C/K pickup models revolutionized the transition of pickup trucks. They changed from being strictly work vehicles to serving as the multipurpose family and work haulers that we know today. From higher-quality cabin materials to revolutionary advances in aerodynamic design, to new 4.3-litre V6 and 6.2-liter diesel V8 powertrain options, these new pickups were the beginning of the cutting edge technology that we expect in a modern truck.

1999 Chevy Silverado Debut

For decades (1975 to 1999), “Silverado” was a trim level of other Chevy vehicles, like the C/K pickups, the Suburban, and the Tahoe. The first full-size truck to carry the Silverado name came in 1999. The Silverado arrived just in time to meet growing demand for trucks that could serve passenger and worksite needs.

Pictured Below: One of the first true Chevy Silverados from 1999

Silverado Technology Jump in 2004

Just a few years after the official Silverado debut, 2004 brought another groundbreaking idea to the full-size truck segment: the crew cab. These spacious models were able to accommodate larger families, and were often loaded with features like rear seat entertainment systems, XM radio, and advanced climate control.

Pictured Below: the 2004 Chevy Silverado Crew Cab Z71

As history has moved forward, so too the Chevy Silverado has advanced. Models in 2007 began focusing on fuel economy and refined construction. Features like cylinder deactivation, coil-over-shock front suspension, electronic stability control, and new airbag options began to make these truck even better.

Today we have options like the Chevy Silverado with an eAssist powertrain, and advanced towing technology, but we have not yet reached the end of truck perfection. Based on the steady advances of history, we know that the 2016 Chevy Silverado is great, but that future models will continue to get even better, thanks to Chevrolet’s devotion to quality every step of the way.

What Is A Differential (and Why Is It Nice For Them To Lock)?

What Is a Differential on a Car or Truck?

If you are thinking about buying a new truck or SUV for off-roading or rough country roads (like the 2017 GMC Sierra All Terrain, you may have seen phrases like “electronically locking differential” or “limited slip differential” being thrown around. But what is a differential on a car or truck, and why is locking one useful for off-road adventuring? Keep reading to find out more.

Will Special Edition 2017 Chevy SUVs Be Available in Canada?

With the announcement of the 2017 Chevy Equinox Special editions available later this year, we are wondering if other special edition Chevy SUVs will be available in Canada. We don’t have any solid information about this yet, but we know that Chevrolet is expanding the U.S. production of special edition 2017 Chevy SUVs, and it’s possible that this new inventory will be available in Canada as well.

What special edition 2017 Chevy SUVs may be available in Canada?

We have an entire post about the 2017 Chevy Equinox special editions that will be available in Canada (classic black Midnight and Summit White Sport models), but what other special edition 2017 Chevy SUVs can we hope for? According to recent Chevrolet announcements, the U.S. market will be getting not only the 2017 Chevy Equinox specialty models, but also special edition 2017 Trax and 2017 Traverse models.

2017 Trax Midnight Edition

The Trax Midnight Edition, which was introduced in 2016, seems scheduled to return on the refined 2017 model, though we don’t have an estimated time for that. We would be surprised if the 2016 edition was the only run of this popular option. Like the Equinox and Chevy Silverado Midnight Editions, this model will be completely blacked out, including the wheels and the front Chevrolet bow-tie.

2017 Chevy Traverse Graphite

Available only on the 2LT model (and with all the advantages of that advanced trim), the Graphite Edition of the 2017 Chevy Traverse will feature 20-inch Dark Charcoal wheels, black Chevrolet bow-tie branding, an integrated step assist and dual exhaust. Exterior color options will be Mosaic Black Metallic, Tungsten Metallic, Siren Red, and Iridescent Pearl. We enjoy this confident new look on the popular Traverse.

Again, here at Craig Dunn Motor City in Portage La Prairie MB we don’t have solid information about the availability of these special editions in our area, except for Chevy Equinox. If you are interested in one of these special addition 2017 Chevy SUVs, contact a member of our sales team or keep an eye on our inventory.

2016 Chevy Silverado Release Date in Winnipeg

As we enter the second half of 2015, it’s time to start getting excited about the release of all the upcoming 2016 models. It is always exciting to see what has changed with these new models. Sometimes they are huge changes and other times they are minor, so it helps to research them as they are revealed. Today we’ll be taking a closer look at the 2016 Chevy Silverado release date in Winnipeg.

2016 Chevy Silverado Highlights

The all-new Silverado 1500 was first introduced in 2013 and since then it has gone through a variety of changes and its sales have grown each year. The Silverado will receive a few upgrades for the 2016 edition. For starters, it will have a more muscular appearance and offer new customer-focused technologies. The Silverado will have a new front end design with bold elements, sculpted hood and dramatic lighting that highlights the strength and refinement of this powerful pickup.

The 2016 Chevy Silverado will also have the updated Chevy MyLink which will support both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as well as some additional safety technologies. Chevy will have the widest range of models in the industry that gives users access to both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. This will help drivers who are already accustomed to their preferred system. They won’t have to choose a vehicle based on what kind of phone they have, because it supports both. The 2016 Chevy Silverado will also have the available brand exclusive 4G LTE Wi-Fi capabilities.

Although we don’t know much so far, we do know that we can’t wait to see the 2016 Chevy Silverado. We will learn more product details this fall as the public debut gets closer.

Chevy Builds Partnership to Optimize Trailering Technology

Chevy Partners with RVIA and NATM

There are plenty of reasons that families and individuals want premium towing power. Whether they need to haul a horse trailer to a fair around Manitoba, or enjoy moving a boat or serious cargo with ease, it is important for truck owners to have competent and easy-to-use trailering options. To make current advanced Chevy towing technology even better, Chevrolet has partnered with two other groups. With the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) and the National Association of Trailer Manufacturers (NATM), Chevrolet plans to make even better options for customer’s trailering needs.

We don’t have news about what advanced Chevy towing technology may come out of these partnerships. However, here at Craig Dunn Motor City we think that even more intuitive and driver-optimized towing technology will be on the way. There have already been some recent advances making towing and hauling much easier.

Chevy truck owners can already enjoy several advnaced features when it comes to trailering with confidence. Some of them include an elite trailering camera that can show a view from up to four locations in and around a trailer; digital steering assistance first available on the 2016 Chevy Silverado HD, and a convenient 5th wheel trailering packages that allows drivers to have their trucks optimized for heavy hauling straight from the factory floor.

“Our owners are often towing something, from an RV to construction equipment, that is more valuable than their truck,” said Tim Herrick, General Motors future truck executive chief engineer, in a recent Chevy press release. “Unequivocally, they tell us that they are looking for a better towing experience. Safer, easier, with more integration between their trailer and their truck.”

Keep watching the Craig Dunn Motor City blog, or contact a member of our sales team, to learn more about advanced Chevy towing technology available now and coming in the future.

How much room is in the Silverado cargo box?

2019 Chevy Silverado Truck Bed Upgrade

The 2019 Chevy Silverado will be coming later this year to dealerships around the country with a lot of changes. This truck will have some serious changes when it comes to your payload. We will show you the 2019 Chevy Silverado truck bed upgrade so that you can see one of these big changes for yourself.

Standards

The 2019 Chevy Silverado has been improved to give drivers more space in the truck bed. The bed is 22 inches in depth for all three boxes: the short, standard, and long. It also comes in various lengths, which we will touch on later. The 2019 Chevy Silverado has more space than last year’s model with a 63 cubic feet cargo volume as opposed to the 2018 Chevy Silverado’s 53 cubic feet in the short box. The standard box has 72 cubic feet of space in the 2019 model, and the 2018 model has 62 cubic feet of cargo room. The long box has 89 cubic feet versus 75 cubic feet.

Against the Competition

The Silverado is also keeping in step with the competition. The Chevy Silverado’s truck bed is made of high-strength steel, and the 2019 Ford F-Series truck beds are made of aluminum. When you compare cargo room, the 2019 Chevy Silverado beats the Ford F-series and Ram 1500 with 72 cubic feet versus 62 cubic feet. The long box of the 2019 Chevy Silverado beats the 2019 Ford F-Series as well with 89 cubic feet versus 77 cubic feet.

Available colors for the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Colors available at an extra charge: Siren Red Tintcoat, Deep Ocean Blue Metallic, Iridescent Pearl Tricoat

These specialized paints offer the most unique and aesthetic schemes available, with the latter only being available on Crew Cab models. Depending on where you stand on the importance of truck color, the extra charge is certainly worthwhile.

Classic colors: Red Hot, Silver Ice Metallic, Summit White, Black

Oldies are goodies. There is nothing more classic than a red pickup truck, and the Red Hot scheme is just that—hot. Silver Ice Metallic offers a more subdued look, while Summit White and Black bring a classic, monochromatic look, enough to satisfy anyone.

New in 2017: Pepperdust Metallic, Graphite Metallic

These colors were never available prior to 2017. Pepperdust Metallic doesn’t sound like much of a color, but its closet resemblance would be pewter. It is a neutral, almost Earth-toned paintjob that looks as classy as any choice. The Graphite Metallic, however, is more striking. It is similar to Black, but is more bold and clean.
