Quality Counts: Chevy Silverado Makes Quality a Priority

November 6, 2008 06:00 PM
Quality has always been a top priority when choosing farm equipment. You buy it, put it to work and expect it to keep going season after season. Whether you are choosing your own personal truck or adding to the rolling stock for your farm hands, everyone in your operation needs a truck they can count on and Chevy makes that truck.

Chevy Silverado, named Car and Driver's best pickup two years running, was also awarded "Highest Ranked Large Pickup in Initial Quality” by J.D. Power and Associates in 2008.* Silverado owners simply had fewer initial problems with their trucks than did the owners of other large pickups.

The Silverado is backed with a 100,000 mile/5-year Transferable Powertrain Limited Warranty**, Roadside Assistance and Courtesy Transportation Programs, which makes it the best coverage in America.

The Silverado XFE has an EPA estimated 21 MPG highway. No other fullsize pickup has better fuel economy.***

For farm operations that are not only growing green but going green, Silverado's Vortec 5.3L FlexFuel V8 engine features the ability to run solely on gasoline, on just E85 (a blend of up to 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline) or a combination of both fuels. You can go to chevy.com/e85 to determine whether E85 fuel is available near you.

Not only does choosing Chevy make good economic sense, owning a Silverado means you have one less thing to worry about.

*Chevrolet Silverado LD received the lowest number of problems per 100 vehicles among large pickups in the proprietary J.D. Power and Associates 2008 Initial Quality StudySM. Study based on responses from 81,530 new-vehicle owners, measuring 344 models and measures opinions after 90 days of ownership. Proprietary study results are based on experiences and perceptions of owners surveyed in February– April 2008. Your experiences may vary. Visit jdpower.com.
