A Look at the 2014 Chevy Silverado

A Look at the 2014 Chevy Silverado

Many drivers enjoy the convenience of a full-size pickup truck for everyday driving as well as for heavy lifting and hauling. The all-new redesigned 2014 Chevrolet Silverado offers a smooth ride combined with the toughness and power to satisfy any driver’s needs. The new 1500 is beautifully designed and is an attention-grabbing pickup. It offers 18-inch polished aluminum wheels to complete its smooth exterior design. The new Chevy incorporates the well-known Bowtie badge symbol with a stylish grille and chrome accents. The new Silverado is now 0.4 inches wider than previous models and offers a more planted look. The wheel arches are squared and provide an innovative design when paired with the more angular exterior. The doors are also inset which helps the pickup look more modern. Considering the older models were not as round, the 2014 model offers a fresh take on the pickup.

The best cars and trucks to dominate winter

The winter season causes headaches to many car drivers around the world. Driving in hazardous conditions is already hard enough, but poorly equipped vehicles also tend to get stuck in snow banks or in slippery patches. To avoid this frustration, many people living North – Canadians, for example – will look for vehicles that are bigger and can easily get them through the winter madness. Today, we will have a look at a few vehicles that are designed especially to survive snow. The big boys: Silverado, F-150 and Ram A few years ago, in 2011, Car Gurus also made a study of the vehicles that were able to drive in harsh conditions. A few trucks were able to make the cut:  it was said that four-wheel drive trucks are very hard to beat in deep snow. The Chevrolet Silverado, the Ford F-150 and the Dodge Ram are the preferred ones thanks to their very high ground clearance, which allows plowing through the snow like a breeze. The Chevrolet 2014...

Survive the End of the World with the Chevy Silverado Black Ops Edition

Survive the End of the World with the Chevy Silverado Black Ops Edition

You just can’t beat a pickup truck, especially the new Chevy Silverado Black Ops Edition! This is one pickup truck you don’t want to pick a fight with, as it may very well run you off the road with just a tap. The Chevrolet Design Manager said of the Chevy Silverado Black Ops Edition: “It’s a survival kit on four wheels” The Chevy Silverado Black Ops Edition come kitted out with gas masks, winch, body armour, and food and drink storage. I know I want this pickup truck in case the world ever ends or is attacked by zombies. This pickup truck has everything except for a gun rack or fitted missile launchers. I don’t know whether I am going all James Bond or Mission Impossible here, but if I am being attacked by zombies, these are two things I would want. Chevrolet built the Black Ops Edition to show off just how good the Silverado model is. I have to say I think it worked as the model...

Hiring a Tractor – Did You Know it Was Possible

Hiring a Tractor – Did You Know it Was Possible

The Possibilities Of A Tractor We lived on a corner lot near a park. My husband and I love landscaping and gardening, but I have to admit, when I saw the city workers speeding across the park on their tractors, pulling shredder mowers behind them, I felt quite envious. That feeling really increased when we decided to start our latest fencing project. 54 fence posts  we had to set, and the started digging each hole by hand. Never again will I make that mistake.   Hire a Tractor Imagine my frustration – and maybe a little bit of resentment – when I realized we could have hired a tractor to dig those fence posts! Not only that, we could have used that post-hole digging attachment to dig holes for the 35 trees we planted! Needless to say, I have since checked into the possibilities of hiring a tractor to handle the heavy work. Here is what I found out. Job Descriptions   There are actually job descriptions for tractors....
