Illinois businesses seeking fleet trucks find excellence in new Silverado

Automotive and Business Fleet magazines name 2014 Chevy Silverado Fleet Truck of the Year

JOLIET, Ill., Jan. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Continuing its reign of excellence after a redesign for the new model year, the 2014 Chevy Silverado has been named Fleet Truck of the Year by both Automotive magazine and Business Fleet magazine.


The Silverado was chosen by a group of qualified fleet managers that represent a variety of industries and fleet sizes.

Organizations and businesses requiring fleet trucks need more than a vehicle capable of getting the job done — they need trucks that are durable, reliable, efficient, and capable of meeting every last demand of the job.

"The Truck of the Year award is voted on every year by fleet managers, making this a real honor for vehicle manufacturers that serve this professional segment," said Sherb Brown, vice president and group publisher for Bobit Business Media's FleetGroup, in a press release.

Bill Jacobs Joliet recognizes the excellence of the Chevy Silverado for work-related purposes and continues to promote the GM Business Choice Incentive Program at its dealership. With Upfit Cash Allowances and Brand Maintenance, northern Illinois fleet managers can tailor the Fleet Truck of the Year to their specific business needs.

The 2014 Chevy Silverado is capable of towing up to 7,600 pounds with its V-6 configuration and offers an available payload of more than 2,000 pounds. Perhaps one of the things fleet managers appreciate most about the 2014 Chevy Silverado is its balance between power and efficiency. As the cost of gas piles up on small business owners, efficient fleet trucks can make for significant long-term savings.

Although Bill Jacobs Joliet's fleet specialists are helpful in getting fleet managers the right equipment and price on their work trucks, the Villa Park Chevy dealership also offers a vast selection of certified used cars and new Chevy models for personal use.
