Carhartt And Chevrolet Get Married

Carhartt and Chevrolet - Collierville, TN

Two titans of the hard-work industry are joining forces; Carhartt and Chevrolet have formed an official partnership to provide their customers with even more rugged and reliable products.

Carhartt will now be “The Official Workwear of Chevy Trucks,” while Chevy is now “The

Official Partner of Carhartt.” Both legendary American companies prioritize toughness and durability, so it was only a matter of time before the two teamed up.

Carhartt was founded in 1889 by Hamilton Carhartt after he identified the lack of long-lasting, durable workwear for railroad engineers. Thanks to the unquestionable quality of the brand’s products, Carhartt rose from its humble beginnings in Detroit to become an international leader in the industry.

The story of Chevrolet is a similar one. Founded in Detroit in 1911, Chevy began producing work trucks in 1918, revolutionizing the automotive industry. In its 108-year history, Chevrolet has manufactured over 85 million trucks across the globe.

There is a lot to be excited about, and we can all look forward to whatever innovative products come from the Carhartt and Chevrolet partnership. Things are already getting started, with the staff of the Chevy Trucks Tour being decked out from head-to-toe in full Carhartt garb. The Chevy Trucks Tour will display Carhartt and Chevy products to more than three million show-goers around the nation.

If you want a truck that proves its mettle in the same way Carhartt has for over a century, you want a Chevy. Head over to Sunrise Chevrolet Buick GMC at Collierville and take one for a drive.

Meet the Tough, Powerful 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD

2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD - Collierville, TN

Coming soon to dealerships, the all-new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD boasts an infusion of power, size, strength, and towing capability for heavy-duty workloads.

Power

Available in 2500HD and 3500HD models, the 2020 Silverado HD comes with two upgraded engine options. The 6.6-liter V8 gets 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque — a major improvement over the outgoing 6.0-liter V8 option. The available Duramax® 6.6-liter turbo-diesel V8 makes 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque. That with the new Allison® 10-speed automatic transmission significantly boost the truck’s capabilities.

Towing

The 2020 Silverado HD offers more towing capability than prior years. Certain models equipped with the Duramax® turbo-diesel can tow up to 35,500 pounds — a 52 percent increase over the previous maximum. Models with the 6.6-liter V8 enjoy up to an 18 percent increase in towing ability. To make towing even easier, choose the available Advanced Trailering System, which offers 15 camera views and a “transparent trailer” feature to maximize visibility.

Size and strength

The 2020 Silverado HD gives drivers a big boost in size and strength. It hauls up to 7,466 pounds in its rugged Durabed. That capability gets support with the model’s beefed-up front and rear axles and a strengthened ladder frame. It also features a longer wheelbase, greater height and width, a more spacious interior, and expanded cargo volume in both the standard and long box sizes. The 2020 Silverado HD will arrive at dealerships this summer, so it won’t be long until you can test-drive it here at Sunrise Chevrolet Buick GMC at Collierville.
