Future for Chevy Pickups

"The technology of advanced high-strength steel makes the Chevrolet Silverado stronger, lighter, more capable and more efficient - and that's exactly what the Toughnology concept represents," said Jeff Luke, executive chief engineer for General Motors.  The Chevorlet Silverado Toughnology concept was revealed this past week, which showcases the concept for Silverado's connectivity technologies that includes an all-new OnStar 4G with built-in Wi-Fi hotspot.  The "toughnology" offers advanced high-strength steel that makes the Chevrolet Silverado stronger, lighter, more capable and more efficient.  The steel used can be up to 30 percent lighter than carbon steel, but still have the same strength, and is at a lower cost than aluminum, which helps keep down the overall cost of the vehicle.

For fleet trucks it is very important to stay efficient and a way to add to that is with Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies Load'N'Go services.  These transferable pickup tool boxes fit any short or long bed model Chevy truck, as seen in the pictures below. They are completely transferable on and off a pickup truck in minutes with no-holes-drilled installation for optimum flexibility.

Latest Fuel Technology

A new cross-linked polyethylene fuel tank is being shipped by Titan Fuel Tanks.  This new tank is said to eliminate the issue of steel tank lining delamination and other associated fuel path problems attributed to variations in diesel fuels and additives. Titan stated that the new fuel tank is quickly gaining favor among Ford dealers and users who have dealt with fuel line contamination in 1999-2010 diesel powered Fords.  The creators of the new tank say that the tank is virtually resistant to the corrosive effects of diesel and bio-diesel fuels.  In the past, the tank delamination problem, which is fuel related, is not covered under Ford’s warranty policy making the repair costs quite significant.  The polyethylene tank is made to fit 2011-2015 Ford F-350, F-450 and F-550.

Pickups: 10 Most Stolen Vehicles

As the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) released its annual Hot Wheels report, which lists the 10 most stolen vehicles, it concluded that full-size pickup trucks from the Big Three U.S. automakers made the list.  The report gathers its information from the vehicle theft data that is submitted by law enforcement to the National Crime Information Center.  There they determine the vehicle make, model and model year that were reported most stolen in 2013.  The report also performed a state-by-state analysis and what they found was that pickups were the most stolen vehicle in nearly half of the U.S.  When the NICB puts out their annual report they also include helpful tips to prevent a vehicle from being stolen such as, locking your car and taking your keys with you.  Also, having things like a warning device, immobilizing device or tracking device is a good precaution to help prevent theft.

Load'N'Go service bodies by Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies, such as the SecurityTop, are equipped with stainless steel, double locking T-handles, and made to protect expensive cargo from both theft and weather damage. They can be transferred from one pickup to another with optional four-corner lifting jacks, a crane, or a forklift via the built-in forklift tunnels. The Security Top fits all major makes of pickup trucks such as Chevy, Dodge, GMC and Ford short or longbed models. Some of its features include 2000lb capacity on floor above drawer, 1000lb capacity drawer, and double locking compartments (cylinder and padlock).
