Nearly 85,000 Silverado EV Work Trucks Have Been Ordered

2023 Chevrolet Silverado EV | Ft. Stockton, TX

Since announcing the production of the all-new electric Chevrolet Silverado EV, General Motors has made nearly 85,000 Silverado EV WT reservations for roughly 370 companies. To gain customers’ confidence and ease the transition to an electric fleet, a team of GM Fleet Experts has become the main source of solution-based assistance. These experts are listening to their customers’ concerns and taking note of what people want.

Consider this proactivity a foreshadowing of what the Chevy Silverado EV WT has to offer its future truck owners, in the name of trust and reliability. The Silverado EV’s advanced technologies are backed by Ultifi, a Linux-based software platform that enables fast and frequent software updates — so you don’t have to worry about tech bugs bogging down your workflow.

Speaking of innovative tech, GM’s Ultium battery platform optimizes the Silverado EV’s handling experience, even when trailering, thanks to its well-engineered weight distribution and low center of gravity. The Ultium Platform also means you’ll get up to a 400-mile driving range, when fully charged.[1] GM is further easing customers’ concerns by offering various charging options, like standard DC Fast Charging capability.

To top it all off, the Silverado EV WT has the muscle to back up its electrical prowess. EV WT models will be able to tow between 8,000 to 20,000 pounds,[2] crank out 510 horsepower, and reach up to 615 lb-ft of torque.[3]

If you want to learn more about why so many others already trust GM to build their electric fleet of work trucks, contact our friendly team at Amistad Motors in Fort Stockton, Texas.

Our Favorite Summer Attractions in Fort Stockton

Summer Attractions | Fort Stockton, TX

At Amistad Motors, our team is proud to serve the community of Fort Stockton, Texas. With our local residents in mind, we’ve put together a list of our favorite summer attractions.

Texas summers bring the heat, but we know how to beat it. Head to the Comanche Springs Pool and Pavilion to cool off in the largest spring in the Comanche system, the Big Chief Spring. The site also hosts the annual Water Carnival the third weekend of July. For those with young children, try the Matthew Quiroz Splash Park.

History buffs should plan a visit to the Annie Riggs Museum. Peruse the rooms filled with original artifacts, preserved from the museum’s hotel and boarding house days, or take a walk in the desert garden.

When you’re done with the Annie Riggs Museum, head across the street to the wine tasting room in the historical Grey Mule Saloon, where you can enjoy local Texas wine alongside charcuterie boards.

For more old-timey fun, take a tour of the Old Pecos County Jail to experience an original 1883 holding cell and view a museum dedicated to local law enforcement. If you’re driving around town, be sure to stop and say hello to Paisano Pete — he deserves a little attention for being the world’s largest roadrunner statue.

Whatever you do, our friendly staff at Amistad Motors wishes you and your family a fun-filled, safe summer.

Chevy Teams Up with Jesse Iwuji Motorsports for NASCAR Xfinity Series

2022 Chevrolet Corvette | Fort Stockton, TX

Almost nothing beats the high adrenaline rush of watching a NASCAR race – except maybe driving in one. Chevy also shares this love of racing, which is why the brand continues to sponsor new talent.

The latest driver Chevrolet has chosen to sponsor is Jesse Iwuji, a United States Naval Academy graduate and current Navy Reserve officer. Jesse Iwuji had 5 starts in the 2020 – 2021 NASCAR Xfinity Series and also appeared 15 times in the 2018 – 2021 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Jesse Iwuji Motorsports is also co-owned by Emmitt Smith, who made his name in football and is in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Smith and Iwuji met in 2020 following Smith’s sponsorship of Iwuji’s car at the event. The pair’s venture will get engineering and team development assistance from Chevrolet, a veteran in the NASCAR world.

Starting in 2022, Jesse Iwuji Motorsports will begin in the NASCAR Xfinity Series in a Chevrolet Camaro SS. The vehicle, the No. 34 Empowering People More Camaro SS, will be driven by Iwuji himself. Of the new team-up, Iwuji stated, “There couldn’t be a more authentic manufacturer partnership for me than one with Chevrolet.”

Though you can’t get a track-ready Camaro at Amistad Motors, you can stop in to test drive some of our racing-inspired performance vehicles like the Camaro and Corvette.
