New Ad Builds Excitement for Chevy Silverado EV Truck

Here at Dave Kehl Chevrolet, we were already getting excited about the upcoming 2024 Silverado EV — and a new television ad spot has only increased our anticipation for this all-new electric truck.

Chevrolet’s “New Generation” commercial stars the Silverado EV and a couple of surprise guests — actors Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Robert Iler from “The Sopranos,” the beloved classic TV series about mob boss Tony Soprano and his family.

In the commercial, Sigler and Iler can be seen in their roles as Soprano’s children Meadow and A.J. The ad reprises the show’s iconic opening credits, except this time around it’s Sigler driving through the New Jersey suburbs behind the wheel of the Silverado EV.

Throughout the commercial, we get to see some of the Silverado EV’s coolest features, including its available 24-inch wheels and Four Wheel Steer capabilities, its 17-inch display screen, and its fixed glass roof. At the end, Sigler connects the truck to a charger to top off its estimated 400 miles of driving range.[1] Using a 350kW fast charger, the truck can add up to 100 miles of range in just 10 minutes according to GM estimates.

The 2024 Silverado EV will be available starting next spring. Initially, it will be offered in WT and RST First Edition trims, with additional models to follow.

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.
