Chevrolet is offering discounts and special lease deals on select models of the 2018 Chevy Colorado, the midsize truck that’s not afraid to take on the big boys when it comes to towing, hauling and all your transportation needs. Chapman Payson has a huge selection of Colorado trucks in all the trim levels. Just an hour or so up the Beeline Highway from Phoenix, consider Chapman Payson a sweetheart destination for your Valentine’s night date.

The Valentine Gift That Keeps on Giving

Forget the stuffed teddy bear and heart-shaped box of chocolates. On this Valentine’s Day, show that special someone just how much you love them with the gift that will keep on giving every time he or she gets behind the wheel. The Chevy Colorado offers three very capable engines, including a diesel option that delivers the power and torque most people seek. Whether you choose the base work truck or the off-road monster that is the ZR2, the Colorado offers the technology and safety features that will remind your lover of just how much they mean to you. Starting at just $20,200, the Colorado is the perfect vehicle for someone with occasional hauling needs but who doesn’t need the capability (or unwieldy size) of a full-size pickup. When you’re not bringing home the weekend project, you can easily maneuver through tight urban areas and grab that last parking spot.

Unique Features Set Colorado Apart

The Colorado is the popular choice in the midsize truck market thanks to the features that make it unique. A corner step rear bumper makes getting in and out of the bed a piece of cake. Triple-sealed doors and thick glass combine with a thick layer of insulation to keep the outside noise on the outside while you enjoy the tunes of the premium infotainment system. Intuitive controls and gauges are driver-centric, meaning you don’t have to search for what you want and can keep your eyes on the road. If you really want something unique, check out the Colorado Special Editions when you make the trip to the Chapman Payson Auto Center. The Redline will turn heads while the Shoreline reminds you its time for another trip to the beach. If you prefer to travel in more of a stealth mode, check out the Z71 Midnight Edition where black rules the day.

Accessorize to Your Heart’s Content

Utility racks, bike carriers and special wheels are just a few of the accessories General Motors offers to make your Chevy Colorado truly your own. The number of different accessories offer the perfect opportunity for gift giving throughout the year to make birthdays and other holidays a perfect excuse to make the scenic drive to Payson.

Now offering features that have never been included in a half-ton pickup truck, the 2019 Dodge Ram 1500 is the new bar for comfort, efficiency, technology and durability. Unveiled at the recent Detroit North American International Car Show, the 2019 Ram is lighter than its predecessor, despite increasing rigidness and upping the maximum towing capability. The lower weight and a new eTorque system will deliver increased fuel efficiency without sacrificing power, according to Ram brand chief Mike Manley. “The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 delivers a no-compromise approach to the full-size truck segment with strength, durability, technology and efficiency,” Manley said. “The Ram 1500 offers truck buyers leading-edge innovation with 225 pounds of weight reduction, 12,750 pounds of towing capability, a stunning Uconnect 12-inch touchscreen display and active systems that improve fuel efficiency and assist drivers.” Look for the new Ram this fall on the showroom floor at the Chapman Payson Auto Center.

Best Ride and Handling Gets Better

The 2019 Dodge Ram remains the only full-size truck with available air suspension, delivering an optimal ride and supreme aerodynamics. With the addition of FRD shocks to the equation, the new Ram is more comfortable than ever. An automatic load leveling system detects an increased weight in the bed or on the hitch and adjusts the air pressure to level out the truck. The driver can also manually lower the truck to increase efficiency and make it easier to load and unload the truck, as well as provide for simpler access to the cab. Almost all trim packages offer an off-road package that includes a one-inch lift, 18-inch wheels with 33-inch tires, special trail-rated shock absorbers and skid plate protection.

eTorque System Acts as Mild Hybrid

The new powertrain for the 2019 Dodge Ram utilizes a unique mild hybrid system that replaces the alternator with a generator that’s attached to a 48-volt battery pack. The battery adds torque upon startup and drives the fuel-saving start/stop function that shuts the Ram off when you come to a complete stop and then starts up again when you step on the gas.  Braking offers a regenerative function that recharges the battery pack. Most trim packages will come with the standard Pentastar V6, a time-proven engine that has been upgraded with variable valve timing for increased power and gas mileage. For more power, you might consider the beefy 5.7L HEMI V8 that produces 395 horsepower and a crushing 410 pound-feet of torque. Both engines are integrated with an eight-speed automatic transmission that makes sure you are always in the right gear for the most in power and efficiency. You can see the new Dodge Ram when it comes to Chapman Payson Auto Center this fall.

There are still plenty of great deals on remaining 2017 Chevy Silverado pickup trucks at the Chapman Payson Auto Center, a little more than an hour’s drive from Phoenix up the Beeline Highway. Whether you need a basic work truck or a crew cab with all the creature comforts, the rebates start at $4,000 off sticker price and go up from there. These are brand new 2017 models with a full factory warranty and that fresh new truck smell. Stop by Chapman Payson soon for the best selection at this remarkable price.

Most Dependable Truck on the Road

Chevy claims that the Silverado is the most dependable truck on the road, but that’s not just a hollow boast or an empty marketing campaign. Based on full-size pickup registrations in America from 1987-2017, there are more Silverado trucks still on the road in that time period than any other brand. Along with the truck’s dependability, the Chevy Silverado also offers best-in-class V8 horsepower, best-in-class V8 fuel economy and towing capability up to 12,500 pounds. With its modern styling, comfortable interior and up-to-date technology, isn’t it time you considered a Chevy for your next truck?

100 Years of History

Chevy is celebrating its truck centennial this year, with a crisp 100 years of experience producing pickups for American consumers. The truck has changed a bit since the initial model that was basically four wheels, a flat bed, engine and a steering wheel. The 2018 Chevy Silverado Centennial Edition is a beautiful truck that comes with four-wheel drive, Heritage bowtie emblems and Centennial badging. It has a sharp Centennial Blue exterior accentuated by chrome door handles, mirror caps, tow hooks and belt line molding. The 22-inch premium silver wheels with chrome inserts provide a rolling exclamation point on the style of this sharp pickup.

Choose a Trim That Works for You

From the basic work truck to the sophisticated High Country, the Chevy Silverado comes in eight different trim packages that have a price for any budget. The Silverado offers three different engine choices, depending on your power and efficiency needs. The base 4.3L V6 delivers a peppy 285 horsepower and the ability to tow 7,600 pounds while still providing a healthy 24 mpg on the highway. The 5.3L V8 also gives you 24 mpg on the highway, but boosts the horsepower to 355 while the towing ability jumps to 11,100 lbs. For heavy duty needs, the 420 horsepower, 6.2L V8 delivers 12,500 lbs. of towing ability while still managing 21 mpg on the highway. Head to Chapman Payson today for the pick of the remaining 2017 models at the lowest price.

When it comes to finding a vehicle that can handle tough trails, yet still delivers the sophistication and comfort you demand for your daily travels, there are few rivals to the Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit. Slide inside the luxurious cabin and smell the rich leather trim. Run your hand along the open-pore wood accents and you’ll have a sensory experience that’s other worldly. As beautiful as the interior is, it is only matched by the distinctly styled exterior with athletic lines and 20-inch polished aluminum wheels. See why the Summit challenges premium SUVs for performance and comfort by taking a test drive at Chapman Payson Auto Center.

Surround Yourself in Concert Quality Sound

The Summit is the only trim level of the Jeep Grand Cherokee lineup to include a premium Harman Kardon Audio System with 19 speakers as standard equipment. The stereo and speakers are expertly tuned to the acoustics in the interior of the Summit to create a musical experience that surrounds you and your passengers from all sides. As long as we’re talking about premium technology, the Summit is also one of two Grand Cherokee models to include lane departure warning with lane keep assist. This modern feature monitors how you do keeping the vehicle between the lines and lets you know if you start to drift.

The King of Off-road Capability

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is the comfortable wagon that doubles as the king of off-road capability. Whether you’re attacking rocky terrain, get caught in a winter whiteout or need to ford a stream to get to your destination, the Grand Cherokee has the Jeep pedigree of 4×4 domination that lets few things get in its way. The optional Selec-Terrain 4×4 system lets you tailor your settings to fit the challenge of the moment. Just turn the dial to Rock, Snow, Sand, Mud or Auto to let the vehicle do the work, delivering the proper power and throttle control to the wheel that needs the most help. This technology lets go from cruising up the Beeline Highway one minute to reconnoitering the Mogollon Rim on a seldom-maintained Forest Road the next.

Pentastar Engine Delivers Power and Efficiency

The tried and true 3.6L V6 Pentastar Engine is the motor of choice for the Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit, delivering 295 horsepower, 260 pound-feet of torque and up to 26 mpg on the highway. This phenomenal motor, which is featured in other Jeep, Dodge and Chrysler models, also allows the Summit to tow up to 6,200 pounds, or more than required for most recreational trailers. The smooth 8-speed automatic transmission moves easily through all the gears, getting the most performance and efficiency out of each range. If you’re looking for a capable off-road vehicle that is as much at home hitting the trails as it is ferrying you and that special someone out for a night on the town, head to Chapman Payson Auto Center and check out the Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit.

With manufacturer rebates and special lease deals added on top of local specials, there’s still a little time to get great Holiday savings from the Chapman Payson Auto Center. Whether you’re looking for a new Chevy, Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep or Ram Truck, Chapman Payson is the one-stop shop just a little more than an hour away from Phoenix at the end of the beautiful Beeline Highway. Make a deal on a new or used 4×4 and take advantage of some of the most beautiful scenery in the state by exploring the Forest Roads of the Tonto and Coconino National Forests before the snows set in.
