All New 2014 Silverado Now Available at Guaranty Chevrolet Orange County


Santa Ana, CA (PRWEB) July 05, 2013

New from hood to hitch, the 2014 Silverado 1500 is engineered to be stronger, smarter and more capable than ever before for Orange County-area drivers.

Among the hundreds of improvements, large and small, are:

-A trio of all-new EcoTec3 engines, a V-6 and two V-8s

-A stronger, quieter and more comfortable cab

-A refined new interior with features tailored to the needs of truck customers

-Revised steering, suspension and brakes for improved ride and handling

-Ingenious solutions for managing cargo in the bed

Base prices for the Silverado 1500 – regular cab, double cab, and crew cab – carry over from 2013. Orange County-area buyers of all 2014 Silverado 1500s also will receive a standard scheduled maintenance program, for two years or 24,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Silverado crew cabs with the available 5.3L EcoTec3 V-8 arrived at Chevrolet dealers in May. The manufacturer’s suggested retail prices for crew cabs start at $ 32,710, including a $ 995 destination freight charge – the same as the 2013 model.

The crew cab will be joined this summer by a regular cab model and a new double cab Silverado, which replaces the extended cab. Also available this summer will be an all-new EcoTec3 V-6 with the most torque and highest towing rating of any standard V-6.

Coming later in 2013 are an all-new 6.2L EcoTec3 V-8, engineered to raise the bar for premium truck engines, and the High Country, a rugged, luxurious Silverado tailored to the growing market for high-end pickups.

“Orange County-area truck customers are among the most discerning and demanding in the business,” said Joe Renden of Guaranty Chevrolet in Santa Ana. “They work their trucks hard, they have tough tasks to do, and they expect their trucks to do them, without complaint.”

Silverado’s innovative technology is tailored to the way Orange County-area customers use full-size pickups, providing the power, efficiency, refinement and dependability they expect from their trucks.

Examples include:

-EcoTec3 engines that provide class-leading V-8 fuel efficiency and towing capability, without the cost and complexity of turbocharging

-High-strength steel that makes the frames and cabs stronger and lighter, yet can take the pounding of towing, hauling and off-road operation, year after year

-The strategic use of aluminum alloys to reduce the weight of engines, front suspension components, hoods and other parts

-New interiors featuring ample storage, multiple power and USB connections and available high-wear cloth for bench or bucket seats

-Chevrolet MyLink, which provides powerful connectivity for work or family with simple, intuitive controls

Now available at Guaranty Chevrolet, the all-new 2014 Silverado offers Orange County-area customers many choices, in the form of seven models. The 2014 Silverado 1500 will be available in seven distinct trim levels. Two work trucks will be available, a 1WT and 2WT, with the 2WT adding features such as chrome bumpers, high-wear cloth seats and Chevrolet MyLink with a 4.2-inch color touch screen.

Silverado LT and LTZ models provide additional features, such as an 8-inch color touch radio and trailering package on the LT, and a standard 5.3L EcoTec3 V-8, leather seating, and dual-zone climate control on the LTZ. Z71 models with enhanced off-road capability are available in both LT and LTZ trim levels. The Silverado High Country gives Chevrolet a fresh new entry in the fast-growing premium pickup segment.

2014 Silverado 1500 at a glance

EcoTec3 engines: Silverado 1500 will offer three all-new EcoTec3 engines – a 4.3L V-6 SAE-certified at 285 horsepower (212 kW) and 305 lb.-ft. of torque (413 Nm), a 5.3L V-8 certified at 355 horsepower (250 kW) and 383 lb.-ft. of torque (519 Nm), and later this year, a new 6.2L V-8.

All three EcoTec3 engines feature direct fuel injection, Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation) and continuously variable valve timing, a combination not found in competitive trucks. The engines also use a compact overhead-valve design and weight-saving components such as aluminum blocks and cylinder heads, to reduce mass, for additional energy savings.

All three provide the proven power, torque and dependability of a large-displacement engine, seamlessly switching to four-cylinder mode to save fuel during light-load driving. The 5.3L V-8 has EPA–estimated fuel economy of up to 23 mpg highway (2WD models), the best of any V-8 pickup, and better than Ford EcoBoost V-6.

Silverados equipped with the 4.3L V-6 will have towing ratings up to 7,200 pounds, the highest for any base V-6 in the segment. Silverados equipped with the 5.3L V-8 and the max towing package, available later this year, will have towing ratings of up to 11,500 pounds, which is more than any light-duty pickup currently on the market.

Top 10 Reasons Why Silverado is Summers Perfect Pickup for Orange County Drivers Guaranty Chevrolet


SANTA ANA, Calif. (PRWEB) July 15, 2013

The all-new 2014 Chevrolet Silverado – now available at Guaranty Chevrolet – has been re-engineered to be stronger, smarter and more capable, making it the perfect pickup for hitting the road this summer. Guaranty Chevrolet and Chevrolet knows that Orange County-area drivers taking road trips need more than just extra trunk space, which is why Silverado offers something for all passengers.

“The 2014 Silverado has everything Orange County families’ need to have a wonderful summer vacation,” said Joe Renden, Online Sales Manager. “Its combination of efficiency and capability will help drivers save money and enjoy conveniences that enhance the overall functionality of the vehicle mile after mile.”

From hood to hitch, here are the top 10 reasons the Silverado is well equipped and capable to exceed Orange County-area drivers’ expectations on the roadways this summer:

1.    No need to stop for directions. Drivers can stay on course with Chevrolet MyLink and OnStar. Simply choose a destination and an OnStar advisor will send turn-by-turn directions directly to the in-dash touch screen.

2.    Ditch the mixed CD. Energize your ride with a road-worthy playlist. The MyLink system includes Bluetooth for phone streaming and enough USB ports and outlets to support multiple devices, making it easier to enjoy your music on the road.

3.    Forget the days of the dead cell phone. Stay charged up with a new 110-volt outlet and cord management system which enables you to leave your cell phone charger plugged in for easy access when it’s needed and concealed when it’s not.

4.    Store snacks and water for the road. The front door panels have integrated pockets perfect for snacks, drink bottles, or travel guides. The rear panels also have room for a typical 20-ounce bottle.

5.    Spend less time stopping for gas. The redesigned 2014 Silverado is aerodynamically enhanced to reduce drag, giving drivers greater fuel efficiency on the highway.

6.    Stretch out. Passengers can enjoy plenty of legroom, even in the backseat. Thanks to new sculpted seatbacks, rear seat passengers enjoy about two inches more legroom and the ease of entering and exiting through wider rear crew cab doors.

7.    Sleep it off. Passengers can enjoy a quiet nap thanks to Silverado’s new inlaid doors. This new design, combined with triple door seals, helps to reduce wind noise and turbulence, quieting the interior of the cab.

8.    Secure travel necessities. With Silverado’s new Smart Pickup Box and four built-in cargo tie-down provisions, your items remain safe and secure on the road. The new CornerStep bumper and handholds also provide easier access to climb in the box for

loading and unloading.

9.    Tow your boat, camper, trailer, and more. Silverado’s 5.3 L EcoTec3 V-8 and stronger chassis provide the durable towing capability, up to 11,500 pounds, that you need for hauling on long road trips.

10.    Be on the safe side. Travel companions stay safe with Silverado’s two available active safety technologies – forward collision alert and lane departure warning. These features, new to Silverado, warn you when you’re at risk of colliding with another vehicle or leaving the lane.

2014 Silverado Scores a Safety First for Trucks Now Available at Guaranty Chevrolet Orange County


Santa Ana, CA (PRWEB) September 22, 2013

The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and Silverado High Country, now available at Guaranty Chevrolet, are among the first pickup trucks to receive the highest possible five-star Overall Vehicle Score for safety since the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration changed its New Car Assessment Program for the 2011 model year. The others are the 2014 GMC Sierra and Sierra Denali 1500.

NHTSA only tested the crew cab models of the Silverado. Chevrolet expects crew cab models to account for 60 percent of their 2014 light duty full-size pickup truck sales.

“Safety is important to Orange County-area Silverado owners,” said Joe Renden of Guaranty Chevrolet. “This designation by NHTSA confirms that the 2014 Silverado delivers top safety performance.”

The Silverado offers Orange County-area enthusiasts’ fully boxed frames, extensive use of high-strength steel, and several segment-exclusive safety features are available, including Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning, and Safety Alert Seat.


    Safety Alert Seat warns the driver of potential traffic danger using directional vibration pulses from the seat cushion. The patented warning approach is tied to all of the on-board crash avoidance systems.
    Forward collision alert technology helps prevent frontal crashes by alerting the driver when the truck is closing in on a vehicle ahead too quickly, giving him or her additional time to react and avoid a crash.
    Lane Departure Warning technology alerts the driver when the truck drifts over a lane line when traveling at least 35 mph.
    Rear Vision Camera with Dynamic Guidelines allows the driver, when in reverse, to view objects directly behind the vehicle via the radio screen in the center stack, allowing for easier parking and backing maneuvers.
    New, standard lap belt pretensions in the front-seat outboard safety belts.
    Six standard air bags and 360-degree sensor system, including dual-stage frontal air bags, head-curtain side-impact air bags with rollover protection, and seat-mounted side-impact air bags.
    Trailer-sway control that works with StabiliTrak to provide the driver with additional assistance when towing a trailer. When it senses trailer sway, it intervenes with braking and/or reduced engine power to bring the trailer under control.
    Four-wheel, four-channel, antilock disc brakes (ABS) that help provide straight, more controlled stops by preventing wheel lock-up in most road conditions.
    OnStar is available, using GPS and cellular phone technology to automatically call for help in the event of crash. OnStar service also includes MyLink mobile apps, which offer vehicle information and OnStar services via the customer’s smartphone.

Guaranty Chevrolet Orange County Charged Up about New Spark EV at LA Auto Show


SANTA ANA, Calif. (PRWEB) December 07, 2012

Chevrolet has unveiled the plug-in electric version of the brand’s popular new Spark mini car at the Los Angeles Auto Show this month and Guaranty Chevrolet in Orange County is charged up about GM’s new offerings. The Spark EV is one of 13 new or significantly redesigned products that Chevrolet will be launching in 2013.

Chevrolet will also showcase the expanded functionality of an advanced version of MyLink, which will be available first in the all-new 2014 Impala full-size sedan.

“Chevrolet continues to build on the momentum of eight consecutive quarters of record global sales with the introduction of more new products, features and technologies that are designed to offer consumers exceptional functionality, comfort and convenience,” said, Chris Perry, vice president of Global Chevrolet Marketing.

“The Spark EV and next-generation of MyLink demonstrate Chevrolet’s commitment to delivering the advanced technologies that today’s consumers will be eager to adopt and truly value,” Perry said.

The Spark has won over Southern California drivers with its expressive design, roomy interior and MyLink connectivity. In its first three months on sale, the Spark has delivered strong results, particularly in the Greater Los Angeles market. Building on that success, the plug-in electric version of the Spark EV will offer Orange County buyers the same package that has made the gasoline-powered model so popular while delivering the technology and performance of pure electric power.

MyLink currently offers consumers easy-to-use in-vehicle connectivity. With the launch of the 2014 Impala next year, MyLink adds new levels of personalization and more seamless smartphone integration that should promote better customer experience.

In addition to the Spark EV, other Chevrolet vehicles on display at the LA Auto Show include the all-new Impala, Malibu Turbo mid-size sedan, Sonic RS small car, Traverse full-size crossover and Camaro Hot Wheels® Edition.

2014 Chevrolet Impala Receives Top Ten Sedan By Consumer Reports Guaranty Chevrolet Orange County


SANTA ANA, Calif. (PRWEB) July 29, 2013

The 2014 Chevrolet Impala has received the Top Ten Sedan in the United States by Consumer Reports for safety and reliability. The 2014 Chevy Impala also received the highest possible five-star Overall Vehicle Score for safety as part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s New Car Assessment Program.

“Safety and reliability is a big concern for Orange County-area car buyers,” said Joe Renden of Guaranty Chevrolet. “The new Impala is also designed with quite a few new safety technologies, to provide excellent crash safety.”

The redesigned, full-size sedan presents Orange County-area drivers with one of the most comprehensive collections of standard and available safety features in the segment. It employs advanced technologies – including radar – to help avoid crashes. Visual and audible alerts, depending on the alert feature, help Orange County-area drivers identify potential crash situations and even intervene when a crash threat appears more imminent. The alerts are designed to identify potential threats with sufficient warning to give the driver time to react and make changes.

The available safety features and benefits include:


Full-speed-range adaptive cruise control – Radar technology senses traffic in front of the Impala to adjust vehicle speed, including stopping the vehicle in heavy traffic and accelerating again. It is the first application in a Chevrolet.

Crash imminent braking – Another Chevy first: Radar technology detects a possible crash threat and alerts the driver. If the driver does not appear to react quickly enough or doesn’t react at all, this feature intervenes to apply the brakes in an effort to avoid the crash.

Forward collision alert – Camera technology detects a possible crash threat and alerts the driver, giving him or her time to stop and/or change course.

Lane departure warning – A camera-based lane detection system warns the driver of unsignaled lane changes. The camera, mounted near the inside rearview mirror, identifies traffic lane markings and provides audible alerts.

Side blind zone alert – Using radar sensors on both sides of the vehicle, the system “looks” for other vehicles in the blind zone areas of the Impala and indicates their presence with light-emitting diode, or LED-lit symbols in the outside mirrors.

Rear cross traffic alert – Based on the radar sensors of side blind zone alert, it warns the driver of vehicles in traffic when backing out of a parking spot – including angled parking. Visual and audible alerts are triggered if moving vehicles are detected.

Rear vision camera with dynamic guidelines – With a display in the center stack infotainment system, the camera provides a view of objects directly behind the Impala, while the dynamic guidelines provide a reference that helps make parking and other maneuvers easier.

Ultrasonic rear park assist – Uses sensors in the rear bumper to detect objects directly behind the vehicle and alerts the driver.

Brake pre-fill feature – To quicken the response time of the brakes and help shorten stopping distances, this features “loads” the brake calipers in anticipation of hard braking by slightly increasing the hydraulic pressure in the brake lines whenever the driver lifts off the accelerator pedal. This feature is included on models equipped with adaptive cruise control and collision mitigation braking.

Hill hold/start assist – Applies the brakes for about 1.5 seconds to prevent roll-back when the driver moves his or her foot from the brake to the accelerator pedal.

The advanced, crash-avoidance technologies complement the Impala’s occupant protection features that keep Orange County-area owners safe, including 10 standard air bags:

    Dual-stage frontal passenger air bags with passenger sensing system
    Driver and front passenger side-impact air bags
    Driver and front passenger knee air bags
    Rear outboard side-impact air bags
    Head curtain air bags with rollover sensing for front and rear outboard positions
    Safety belt pretensioners
    Child seat restraint system.

Impala also employs systems that enable greater vehicle control, including standard StabiliTrak electronic stability control system, all-speed traction control, four-wheel disc brakes with four-channel antilock brakes and electronic brake force distribution, which ensures optimal braking force at both axles for maximum stability under heavy braking.

OnStar is standard. It uses GPS and cellular phone technology to automatically call for help in the event of crash. OnStar service also includes MyLink mobile apps, which offer vehicle information and OnStar services via the customer’s smartphone.
