Behind the Scenes – Veteran Owned Veteran Grown Feature

To showcase the Silverado during Summer of Chevy, we chose to go a different route in our filming.  Earlier this year, Jeff Gordon Chevrolet met Bill O’Brien and a few other board members of Veteran Owned Veteran Grown, a local non-profit that aids veterans by giving a renewed sense of purpose and potential entrepreneurship through agricultural endeavors.  The ultimate goal is to help veterans live a full, sustainable life and build a stronger community together.

VOVG exists for several reasons. The biggest one is to connect veterans and their families socially so they don’t feel like they are alone in this journey.  We focus strongly on agriculture in its many forms to help veterans become sustainable,” according to the Veteran Owned Veteran Grown website.   “Farming is hard work with long hours but, it also provides a peace and serenity that no pill the VA will give you can. Everything from raising chickens to craft work. We will do whatever we can to make you sustainable.”

Please enjoy the short feature that we produced on site at Veteran Owned Veteran Grown, starring some of their members with a little help from Team RWB Wilmington.

 

 

It was a beautiful day of shooting at Veteran Owned Veteran Grown Inc, headquartered in Burgaw, NC.

6 Reasons To Stop Shopping for a New Truck

Silverado Raised the BarSince the Silverado got it’s redesign inside and out last year, critics have been an extremely hard time trying to find anything bad to say about it. Besides the sleek and sharp-looking new body style, the new Silverado has undergone some re-engineering under the hood and some redesign on the inside to create more space for your passengers, cargo, and whatever else you may want to store, which is coming in handy with all of the awards it has been winning.

  1. AutoWeek’s 2014 Best of the Best/Truck Award
    Every year, AutoWeek does some extensive research on all newly-introduced cars (sedans, coupes, hatchbacks, convertibles, sportscars) and trucks (crossovers, SUV’s, and pickups) to the market and determine just one car and one truck as “the best.” Each new vehicle is expected to have best-in-class performance, economy, fit and finish, and reliability, to name just a few key areas. Billions of dollars ride on them, as does the success (or failure) of their companies. So what does this title mean? Of all the cars and trucks driven, AutoWeek testers narrowed them down to 2 that they collectively think sit at the pinnacle at the automotive mountain. They choose the most appealing and enjoying vehicles to own – that they themselves would happily drive daily.Chevrolet pulled off a first-ever clean sweep with this year’s awards naming the Corvette Stingray as best car and none other than the Silverado 1500 as best truck.

    “What ultimately pushed the Silverado over the top was that refinement. The cockpit is well built from quality materials, the seats comfortable for long hauls; we literally spent days behind the wheel with nary a complaint. And, of course, the Silverado will haul a ton of stuff.”

  2. Four Wheeler Magazine‘s 2014 Pickup of the Year
    The competition is a week-long test featuring both on- and off-road examinations throughout Southern California. From the deserts to the mountains, judges test the performance of each pickup in a number of terrain types and intricately-planned driving routes. The winning pickup represents the vehicle most capable of enduring nearly all critical situations and conditions.To participate in Four Wheeler Pickup Truck of the Year competition, a vehicle must be either all new or substantially revised from the previous model year. All vehicles must have a two-speed transfer case, a production run of at least 1,500 vehicles available in
    the U.S., and be on sale by January 15, 2014.

    The Silverado won. You can read the rest here.

  3. Automotive and Business Fleet Magazines’ 2013 Fleet Truck of the Year
    This is an award that is judged and determined by qualified fleet managers reflecting all industry segments and fleet sizes. As you can probably guess from the way this post is going, the Silverado wins again.

    Here’s what they said:
    “The Silverado 1500 provides work-ready features throughout the vehicle making it ideal for varied job sites. A standard CornerStep bumper coupled with handholds built into the box rail, upper tie-down hooks, under-rail light-emitting diode, or LED, lighting and an EZ Lift and Lower tailgate also make the box more user-friendly for hauling tools and cargo.”

  4. The NHSTA Gives the Silverado a 5-Star Safety Rating
    The National Highway Traffic & Safety Administration determines the safety rating for every vehicle on the American market. The Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 both got 5-stars for safety – making them the first full-sized trucks to achieve that score since the new, rigorous requirements were implemented back in 2010. (Go General Motors!)
    Here’s something else that says the same thing with more words.

  5. Best V8 Fuel Economy In It’s Class
    The 2014 Silverado 1500 with its 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 gets 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, is mated to a six-speed automatic, can tow 11,500 pounds with the optional Max Trailer Package, and costs the same as the outgoing Silverado, $24,585 (*including $995 destination fee). With all of that, the 2WD gives you 16 MPG city/23 highway, and the 4WD gives 16 city/22 highway. That’s better than the Ford F-150’s V6 engine with EcoBoost.
    That’s what AutoBlog said.

  6. Free Maintenance
    Well since you’re already going to be saving money at the pump, save money at your Chevrolet Certified Service dealership (Jeff Gordon Chevrolet) and don’t pay for any regular maintenance for 2 years/24,000 miles (whichever comes first). That’s just a sweet deal.

So with all that being said – you shouldn’t be contemplating which truck you’re going to buy, you should be contemplating which Silverado you’re going to buy.
