Fall Maintenance for Your Truck

Fall means pumpkin patches and falling leaves, but it also means it’s time for seasonal maintenance for your truck. Prepare your truck for autumn and cooler weather with these basic maintenance tips.

Inspect car battery

Make sure the cables of your car battery are tightly connected and clean. If you notice signs of corrosion, disconnect the cables and terminals and clean them.

Rotate tires

Maximize the mileage on your truck tires by rotating the tires and checking the tread to see if you need to replace them. Consider purchasing winter tires to increase your truck’s traction on snowy roads around Mechanicsburg this winter.

Change oil

New oil prevents your engine from overheating and keeps your engine parts lubricated. Bring your truck into Dave Kehl Chevrolet for your regular oil change and seasonal maintenance. Check your owner’s manual to see when you should bring your Chevy truck in for an oil change.

Restore headlights

During fall, it will start getting darker sooner. That means it’s important to have clear night vision. Clouded lenses can reduce the effectiveness of your headlights at night. If your headlights are becoming cloudy or hazy, restore your headlights with a headlight restoration kit.

Wash car

Clean off the summer bugs and prepare for the snowy grime with a good car wash. Washing and waxing your truck can protect the paint and body while making it look fresh and new.

Staying up to date on fall maintenance will keep your truck ready for whatever lies on the road ahead. To get there, stop into Dave Kehl Chevrolet in Mechanicsburg, Ohio, and we’ll take care of your service needs.

How To Get The Most Value Out Of Your Trade-In

Trading in your old vehicle to get a better deal on your new one is a quick, simple way to save money, and it has tons of benefits. For instance, your trade-in value brings down the pre-tax price of a new truck at Dave Kehl Chevrolet, which means you’ll pay fewer taxes as well as a lower price. If you want to maximize your current ride’s trade-in value, here are a few steps you can take to get the most out of it.

Find out your car’s value

One thing that will help you get the price for your trade-in is knowing exactly what it’s worth. Look at resources like Kelley Blue Book to get an estimation of its value, then get quotes on how much your car would sell for online.

Do a deep clean and make repairs

If your car looks clean and is in good shape, you’ll most likely get a better price than if it’s dirty and has mechanical issues. Don’t spend a ton of money on mechanical repairs, but minor affordable ones can help you to get the most trade-in value.

Don’t be afraid to bargain

When you come to Dave Kehl Chevrolet with the intent to trade your current vehicle in and drive away in a new Silverado, we’re excited to do business with you.

2022 Chevrolet Silverado HD Adding Multi-Flex Tailgate

Most so-called cutting-edge trucks are content with tailgates that do one thing. Chevrolet has different ideas of how a truck should work. That’s why it’s introducing its awesome six-function Multi-Flex Tailgate for the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado HD, available soon at Dave Kehl Chevrolet in Mechanicsburg, Ohio.

So what are the six functions of the Multi-Flex Tailgate? In addition to the primary gate that goes up and down, this tailgate offers primary gate and inner gate load stop settings to accommodate longer items and multiple tiers of items. There’s also an easy-access setting that folds down the inner gate so that you can move items in and out of the bed more easily.

If you need to get into the bed of your Silverado HD, the Multi-Flex Tailgate makes it a synch with a full-width step setting. And for those little breaks in between tasks, the inner gate work surface setting gives you an area to put your elbows up and take a breather. The Multi-Flex Tailgate will be available on all 2022 Chevrolet Silverado HD models. The latest heavy-duty truck from Chevy will be arriving soon at Dave Kehl Chevrolet in Mechanicsburg. Call or email to learn when it hits the showroom so you can be one of the first to take it for a test drive.

Chevrolet Announces All-Electric Silverado for 2023

Chevy has announced that an all-electric Silverado pickup truck will debut for the 2023 model year. Very little has been announced so far about the Silverado EV, but Chevy says the truck will have a General Motors-estimated range of over 400 miles on a full charge.

The Chevrolet Silverado electric truck will be made in America at the Factory ZERO assembly plant in Hamtramck, Michigan. The Silverado EV will be built using the Ultium Platform for electric vehicles, which allows battery cells to be stacked in different formations depending on the vehicle’s dimensions. Ultium batteries are designed to accommodate fast acceleration, high levels of performance, and four-wheel-drive capabilities.

Car and Driver speculates that the Silverado EV could get up to 1,000 horsepower, making it one of the most powerful trucks ever made. C&D also thinks it’s likely the Silverado EV will come standard with all-wheel drive, which means it’ll be plenty rugged, too.

Chevrolet and General Motors are committed to making all-electric vehicles the norm, and a high-powered, intelligent Silverado should be just what the doctor ordered. We can’t wait to tell you more about the all-electric Chevrolet Silverado when the details drop — and to bring it to you when it becomes available.

Until then, if you need a reliable, durable truck, look no further than Dave Kehl Chevrolet. We have the new 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 in stock and ready to test drive.

Tips for Washing Your Chevrolet Truck This Summer

You love your Chevrolet truck. That is why you want to keep it as clean as you can. With summer right around the corner in Mechanicsburg, Ohio, it is time to do some deep spring cleaning on the exterior of your truck. Here are a few professional truck washing tips to get you started.

Gather your materials

You are going to want to use specifically formulated soap for vehicle exteriors. Avoid using something like dish soap because it may strip the paint and diminish the sheen of your truck. For a thorough wash, you’ll need at least two five-gallon buckets — one for soapy water and one for rinsing.

Wash

Using a microfiber wash mitt and soapy water, you can start washing your truck. Wipe in a side-to-side motion working from the top down. Rinse your wash mitt frequently to make sure you’re not spreading dirt around.

Rinse

Rinse each panel as your finish to avoid letting soap dry on the paint. Give the truck a complete rinse once all the parts have been washed.

Wash your wheels

Experts recommend you wash your wheels last since the dirt runs down. You can use a wheel brush to get between all the surfaces. Clean your cloth or brush between each wheel. Rinse each wheel when you finish. Dump and refill your buckets after this step.

Dry

You can use a leaf blower to get a lot of the water off your truck. If you don’t have one, use a dry microfiber towel.

Looking for a shiny new Chevrolet truck all your own? You’ll find the new Chevrolet Colorado, Chevrolet Silverado 1500, and Chevrolet Silverado HD right here at Dave Kehl Chevrolet in Mechanicsburg.

Chevrolet Silverado Makes TikTok Debut in ‘My Truck’

Chevrolet and its iconic Silverado truck have debuted on the short form video platform TikTok with a new music video of country artist BRELAND’s “My Truck.” The new version of the song featured in the video includes the line “My Chevy truck,” shouting out the bowtie brand’s versatile lineup of pickup trucks.

Chevrolet is one of the first auto brands to launch a TikTok, reaching a wide range of new customers on a platform used largely by people in their early 20s, many of whom are joining the workforce or starting small businesses and need a reliable pickup.

The collab between BRELAND and Chevrolet was a match made in heaven, according to BRELAND, who said that Chevy “truly understand what makes truck culture so special.” BRELAND said that trucks are appealing to a younger and more diverse audience than ever, which is why TikTok was a perfect platform to showcase the Silverado 1500.

“They appreciate that truck enthusiasts are getting younger and more diverse, and that insight was the inspiration for the original version of the song,” said BRELAND. “Coming to the table with that shared perspective made the collaborative process of rewriting ‘My Truck’ so much fun.”

The music video was filmed in different areas of Nashville, Tennessee, which was intended to portray the diversity of the city, Chevy truck customers, and the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado lineup. BRELAND is featured singing in front of Silverado trucks in a field, riding in a Silverado on a racetrack, and interacting with other Chevy drivers at a busy fairground.

Whether you’re on TikTok or still figuring out MySpace, the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has something for you. Check it out at Dave Kehl Chevrolet in Mechanicsburg, Ohio.

Get to Know the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado HD Carhartt® Special Edition

If there’s American automaker that knows how to build rugged trucks for hard work and even harder play than Chevrolet, we haven’t heard of it. So, it’s only fitting that Chevy partnered with the undisputed champion of outdoor apparel to develop a truck like no other — the Silverado HD Carhartt® Special Edition.

Do you enjoy towing your camper or boat to campsites or lakes near Mechanicsburg? The Silverado can pull up to 36,000 pounds when properly equipped.* Want to tame the wilderness of rural Ohio? The optional 6.6-liter Duramax® Turbo-Diesel and its 910 lb-ft of torque should be more than enough to help you maintain control.

Even better, the Silverado HD Carhartt® Special Edition makes a strong statement. It features a bold Carhartt® Gold stripe that stretches all the way from the top of the grille to the Durabed. Add in a roll-up tonneau cover emblazoned with the Carhartt® logo, standard 4-inch assist steps, and available 20-inch machined aluminum wheels with Grazen Metaillic accents and all-terrain tires, and you’ve got a pickup that’s hard to beat.

If you’re interested in getting behind the wheel of the 2021 the Silverado HD Carhartt® Special Edition, build yours online and have it delivered to Dave Kehl Chevrolet.

3 Great Ideas for a Date Night at Home

Make a DIY drive-in

How about a trip to the drive-in for Valentine’s Day? If you have a garage and a projector, you can make it happen.

Find a digital event
