Wilmington, NC- The 61st running of the Daytona 500 is quickly approaching just days away! One of the most sought out sporting events of all time,  the Daytona 500 will be held on February 17th.

In a unique start this year’s Daytona 500 will feature the 2019 Silverado 1500 as the official pace vehicle. This is the first time a pick-up truck will serve as the pace car in the Daytona 500, with two-time Daytona 500 winner Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the driver’s seat.

Honored to pace the Daytona 500 in the Silverado 1500, Earnhardt Jr. said (as cited by Motor Authority, 2018) “Away from the track I’ve driven Chevy trucks all my life, and I’m excited to have this unique experience of pacing the Daytona 500 with the Silverado.” Earnhardt Jr. is a member of the Hendrick Motorsports family, and retired from racing in 2017. Earnhardt Jr. is now a race analyst for the NBCUniversal, and owner of JR Motorsports.

Under the Hood– Although the Silverado 1500 lacks the appearance of a traditional race car, under the hood it features a 6.2-litre V8 with 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, packing a punch close in line with the Chevy Camaro.

Our very own Jeff Gordon will be commentating the Daytona 500 on Fox Sports. Gordon has won three Daytona 500’s 1997, 1999 and 2005. In 2015 Gordon’s final year of racing he won the pole at the Daytona 500, then in 2017 Gordon was the honorary pace car driver for the Daytona 500.

Although this is the first time for a pick-up truck to pace the Daytona 500, Chevrolet has been in the spotlight before pacing the “Great American Race” a total of 12 times; 5 of those times were with a Corvette, and 7 with a Camaro.

Wilmington, NC- Although it is February in Wilmington, North Carolina it feels like spring. Which means it is time to load up the all new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and get out on the beach to enjoy this beautiful “winter weather” this weekend! See how we used the Silverado 1500 Trail Boss LT this week with our full gallery!

 

 

Testing Out a Colorado ZR2 with GearOn™ Accessories

The Perfect Combination for Making the Most of Your Outdoor Adventures

For Summer of Chevy 2018, Jeff Gordon Chevrolet is exploring our coastal city of Wilmington, North Carolina and surrounding areas with a different vehicle every week all summer long! For the first week of Summer of Chevy, we are having fun with the 2018 Colorado ZR2 and just a few of the many available GearOn™ accessories that Chevrolet has to offer.

Water Sports

Our friends over at  Hook, Line, and Paddle happen to know a thing or two about water sports and were happy to help us put Chevy’s GearOn™ accessories to the test. They generously brought over Native’s latest fishing kayak – the Slayer 12 XC (video below) to pack on top of our Colorado. To do that, we equipped the Colorado with Thule® Roof Racks  and the Hull-A-Port Pro™ Folding J Kayak Carrier, allowing us to carry the sizeable fishing kayak securely on one side of the roof. With space to fill on the other side of the roof, we decided on the Thule® Roof-Mounted Big Mouth™ upright bike carrier – making the perfect combination for summer time adventures hitting the trails and waterways with plenty of cargo room to spare for additional gear! For cyclists who need to carry more bikes for family or friends, Chevrolet also offers options to carry over the cargo bed or hitch-mounted carriers that can carry up to 4 bicycles, if needed.

And, for those who enjoy bigger toys during the summer, the Colorado ZR2 has a towing capacity of up to 5,000 pounds to get your boat or jet skis to the ramp with ease. Not to mention, with the new tow hitch guideline feature available on the new Chevy Trucks, you can get your trailer hooked up in no time.

While shopping Chevy Accessories for our Colorado ZR2, we discovered just how versatile the GearOn™ accessory line really is with its customization options. We were able to showcase its ability to cater to bikers and water sport enthusiasts on this truck, but it also has plenty of options for other outdoor activities. So, if you happen to live closer to the mountains than the coast, GearOn™ has you covered year-round.

Winter Sports

For those who enjoy winter sports, there are plenty of options to secure your gear and equipment separately and securely. With the Flat Top (above) or Hitch-Mounted (right) Ski/Snowboard Carriers by Thule®, you can anchor up to four snowboards or six pairs of skis in the back of the truck without sacrificing any cargo space in the bed.

Camping

PhotoFor those who enjoy camping any time of the year, one of our favorite GearOn™ accessories is this Sportz® Camping Tent by Napier that is designed to fit perfectly into the bed of your Chevy Truck, and can be put up and taken down with ease. Since you’ll have your Chevy Colorado with a 4G LTE WiFi hot spot, there’s nothing stopping you from uploading a peaceful Boomerang of yourself being one with nature to your Instagram story.

Whatever your camping style, Chevrolet offers a wide array of accessories including cargo bed dividers, nets, and roof-mounted cargo carrying options to make sure your camping trip goes just as planned. And you’ll be rest assured that whether you’re driving out on the sand, snow, or up the side of a mountain, the Colorado ZR2 won’t leave you stuck in the mud.

So by now, we’re sure you’re wondering where to get one of these amazing trucks and some handy accessories to go with it. Jeff Gordon’s Chevy dealer in Wilmington has you covered! Come join the JGC Family like the dozens of smiling faces below. Shop for your Colorado or Silverado, pick out your accessories, and have them installed all under one roof.

Our salesperson was Errington, and he is by far the best car salesperson we have ever felt with. He is both polite and knowledgable. He never made us feel pressured and made sure that our needs were met. In the end we ended up with a new Silverado 2500 with all the bells and whistles we wanted. I honestly feel that you guys should have Errington train your salespeople, it will more than likely increase your sales.

2015 Chevrolet Colorado GearOn Edition Unveiled

Special Edition Mid-Sized Pickup to Arrive at Jeff Gordon Chevrolet in Wilmington, NC this Spring

That all-new redesigned 2015 Chevy Colorado has had quite the successful comeback since its long-anticipated arrival at dealerships in late 2014. Besides winning MotorTrend’s Truck of the Year and Car.com’s Best Pickup of 2015, the mid-sized pickup was a huge hit during and after the epic Super Bowl this year with a clever commercial to highlight the benefits of having OnStar’s 4G LTE built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, and the presentation of a new Colorado Z71 to MVP of the New England Patriots, Tom Brady, who graciously handed the truck to rookie, Malcolm Butler, who made the epic winning catch of that game. Chevrolet also conducted an experiment that proved the Colorado could even make a person more dateable! How about that!

One of the greatest features of the new Colorado that hasn’t been talked about too much (well, until now) is the available GearOn® Cargo Management System which allows adventurists to optimize the truck bed space with different mounting configurations for kayaks, bikes, even a pop-up tent, and compartment options for all your gear and equipment.

So, the GearOn® Edition is born, taking aim at high end versions of the Nissan Frontier and Toyota Tacoma.

Chevrolet Colorado GearOn® Edition Features

The special-edition Colorado will include the GearOn® bars package, divider package, and cargo tie-down rings. Other details include off-road assist steps, EZ light and lower tailgate, 18-inch aluminum wheels, remote start, front and rear black bow tie emblems, and a body-colored solid grille plate. It will be offered on Colorado LT models, crew and extended cabs, with short and long beds and optional 4WD.

The GearOn® Edition Colorado will be arriving at NASCAR champion, Jeff Gordon’s award-winning dealership, Jeff Gordon Chevrolet, in Wilmington, North Carolina this Spring of 2015 and will have a price tag of $32,125 (including destination charge.) And if that price tag is a little more than you would like to spend, the GearOn® accessory kit is available across the lineup and can be purchased with your regular-edition Colorado.
