See Why Chevy’s High-Strength Steel Is First-Rate

July 29th, 2015 by

When you take your truck out on the open road or down to the jobsite, you want the peace of mind that comes with knowing your ride can handle the elements. Drivers who count on their vehicle for a hard day’s work deserve one that will withstand years and years of labor, and the engineers at Chevy found there was no better material for the body of a truck than advanced high-strength steel. The result: a Chevrolet Silverado that is stronger, lighter, more capable and more efficient than ever before. Go test out the competition’s carbon steel or aluminum frames and see how well they hold up; we dare you!

“We put the best materials to use where they’ll do the most good,” said Jeff Luke, the Executive Chief Engineer for Global Full-Size and Midsize Trucks at Chevrolet. “Every panel, inside and out, is designed to support the Silverado’s capability and carry on its position as America’s most dependable, longest-lasting truck.”

It’s a win-win situation all around with the high-strength steel that makes up the Silverado. High-strength steel gives drivers remarkable ruggedness as well as more efficiency due to its lower weight while also cutting costs significantly for automakers during the manufacturing process.

Or, as one Chevy ad campaign put it: if, with your life on the line, you were pressed to pick one vehicle for safety, which would you choose — one made with our advanced high-strength steel or one made from aluminum?

Chevy felt that was a no-brainer, too, which is why they’ve put all their chips behind using high-strength steel. Come experience the sturdy Silverado in action at our Chevy dealership near Dracut, MA, by giving the pickup a close inspection and test-drive. We’ll be glad to set you up with a truck that will change the way you work forever!
