Accessorize Your Chevy Silverado 1500

2-11-2015-MidnightEditionSilverado

When you buy a Silverado at Classic Chevrolet, you have several trim levels from which to choose. That in itself makes it somewhat your own, but you can really make your Silverado unique by adding accessories. Chevrolet has tons of accessories so that you can “build” a special truck.

For the Bed and Cargo Management

Add a bedliner or bed mat to protect the bed from scratches. You can also add a tailgate liner. To change the look of the truck, add a tonneau cover – hard or soft – or a tool box. For further cargo management, add hitch-mounted carriers or tie-down rings. Ladder racks and tow hooks are also available for the Silverado 1500. Perimeter bed lighting also helps you see what you are doing at night.

Interior – Storage and Electronics

If you need additional interior storage, add a front console insert or under seat storage. Add additional audio accessories, remote start a wireless network interface and even a DVD system that resides in the head restraint.

Exterior Accessories

Exterior accessories really make your truck stand out. Not only is it different from other Silverado 1500 models, but adding accessories may make it easier to spot in a sea of parked vehicles. Assist steps and bed step are not only functional, but they look great, too.

Bodyside molding packages change the look of your truck as do custom graphics. You can even change the door handles and add emblems if you want. Additional accessories include fender flares, license plate holders, molded splash guards, window deflectors, molded hood protectors, tubular assist steps and outside rearview mirror covers.

Performance and Trailering

If you want to add some horsepower, consider adding a cat-back exhaust system. To change the look of your Silverado, change out the exhaust tips. And, if you plan on hauling a trailer, accessories include a brake controller package, hitch ball/mount assemblies, hitch receiver covers, trailer wiring adapters

Wheels

You can also change the wheels to 22-inch wheels, or change to a different style of 20-inch wheels including 5-spoke black. The 22-inch wheels are available as 5-split-spoke ultra bright machined high-gloss black, 6-split-spoke chrome, 6-split-spoke ultra bright machined manoogian silver, 6-spoke chrome, 6-spoke high gloss black, 7-split-spoke chrome, 7-spoke silver and 7-spoke silver with black inserts.

#BestDayEver

4-8-2015-BestDayEver

Chevy’s #BestDayEver campaign gave random people things they may have needed or just cheered people up. The auto manufacturer went around the country doing things like a puppy kissing booth, a Kid Rock concert a SOCOM in South Florida and just tried to make people laugh.

However, the biggest gift Chevy gave was a new 2015 Chevrolet Traverse to a single mother who adopted seven special needs kids. Not all of the kids would fit in her car; but now she can take all of them wherever she needs to because they all fit in the Traverse.

If you want to have your own #BestDayEver, stop by Classic Chevrolet to test drive a new SUV, truck, sedan or coupe. Maybe you have been dreaming of that new Corvette or maybe a Badlander truck. Of course, you’ll have to buy or lease your next new vehicle, but we can make it the #BestDayEver with our great customer service, finance rates and lease rates.

Safety and security features may include Chevrolet’s StabiliTrak, traction control, an engine immobilizer, four-wheel disc ABS brakes, brake assist, dual front impact airbags, side impact airbags, an overhead airbag, side airbags and knee airbags.

Top Accessories to Add to Your Chevy

3-18-2015-TopAccessories

The accessories you choose for your vehicle depends on the type of vehicle you are driving – or the type you intend on buying or leasing from Classic Chevy. You can make your Chevy your own with certain accessories – or you can make your vehicle more practical.

Trucks

Pick up a bed extender to add an extra 2 feet to the bed of your truck. These come in handy when you need to haul 8-foot lumber in a 6-foot bed. The bed extender fits over the open tailgate and keeps things from falling out of the bed.

Bedliners and mats keep the inside of the bed from being scratched up from the things you haul. They also keep things from sliding around in the back.

If you add a toolbox to your bed, you may want to add a bed step so that you can reach into the center of the box without having to climb in the bed of the truck.

One of the neatest accessories for a Silverado, especially if you like to camp or go hunting, is a sport tent. The tent is water- resistant and converts the bed into a camper. The tent features a waterproof floor and is made specifically for the Silverado bed.

Cars

Cars have limited space so a roof rack is a good addition if you are constantly trying to cram big things in the back seat or the cargo area. Choose from cargo management items to better organize the trunk, remote start if your vehicle didn’t come equipped with it, license plate holders, a spoiler kit, window deflectors and splash guards. Interior accessories include door sill plates, floor mats and pedal covers.

No matter what you drive, you should have a good first aid kit and a roadside assistance package in the event of an emergency. You can also pick these items up at our accessory shop.

Stop by Classic Chevy

Visit Classic Chevrolet to pick up or have accessories installed or to have other service completed on your vehicle. If you are looking for a new vehicle, stop by our showroom to test drive your next new car, truck or SUV.
