Chevrolet Hoists Silverado HD at Comerica Park

Chevy Comerica Park 1 II

As a signal that the cold, dark season of winter is behind us (well, almost), the boys of summer are ready to start another baseball season. Opening Day for the Major League Baseball was Monday. However, the Detroit Tigers won't get their Opening Day festivities started until Friday against the Boston Red Sox. Hopefully this year's team will find a way to improve on 2016's narrow playoff miss.

As part of the new season, Chevrolet continues its support of the Tigers by sponsoring a pair of vehicles in the Comerica Park outfield fountain for the entire season. This year, just in case you get to any Tigers home games, it's the redesigned 2018 Equinox and Silverado 2500 High Country with the 6.6-liter V-8 Duramax turbo-diesel.

Past Chevy vehicles and the years in which they were the featured vehicles of the Detroit Tigers baseball stadium include:

2016: Colorado and Camaro
2015: Midnight Edition Silverado 2500 and Corvette Z06
2014: Silverado 1500 and Equinox
2013: Silverado 2500 and Impala
2012: Malibu Eco and Camaro
2011: Equinox and Camaro
2010: Equinox and Camaro

How about news on the next gen GM trucks and why they are coming so soon.

Mom, apple pie and Chevrolet!

Baseball is the fourth leg of the stool. Detroit Tigers are one of the historic franchises of professional baseball. Perfect marketing gimmick.

Count me as the New GM Guy

Ford sponsors the KC Royals and the STL Cardinals used the F-150 on opening day to parade around the players/coaches and former greats... I drive a GMC

Yawn...slow news day alright...

@Lionel, Here is some news for ya,

Is that the most powerful diesel truck in its class? ...... Yup!

Now this are good news.

OFFICIAL Apr 5th 2017

Ford adds the 2018 Expedition to its police lineup
Powered by twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6.

Civilians won't be the only ones who can get a new aluminum Expedition. Soon law enforcement agencies around the country will also have the opportunity to add it to their fleets. The new version is now available for police who want lots of secure all-weather storage. For police duty, the SUV gets Ford's twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 coupled to a 10-speed automatic. Power then goes from that transmission to an electronic limited-slip differential with a 3.73 gear ratio.

The F-150 range is also updated. The same 5.0-liter V8 and 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine options remain, but they're now coupled to the 10-speed auto. The F-150 and Expedition also now feature engine stop-start functionality for improved gas mileage. The pickups are still available in extended cab and quad cab configurations with either two or four full doors.

2018 Ford F-150 SSV

Naturally, being police vehicles, both Expedition and F-150 feature vinyl upholstery and flooring in the rear for easy clean-up. They're also fitted with more potent 240-amp alternators to handle all of the electronic accessories police vehicles require.

pretty cool way to do a sponsorship, good thing for those step bars or the hideous DEF tank would show

Torque is what matters. Enjoy 2nd place.

@gms, sorry you have to defend this chevy from second place.

I just hope they mounted it properly, like some things Chevrolet, it might be a little bit shaky.

Ram isn't even selling 1500 Ecodiesel's, yet they beat Chevrolet in the month of March.

Maybe the new grills for last couple years didn't quite change it enough?

But, depending on how the new Colorado's do, I might consider one of those in three more years.

Sure would be nice if they could make all mirrors be self dimming, and maybe if they can put puddle lamps on those mirrors, and since they need to change the mirrors anyway, make them a little bit wider?

The one I would take would be the V6, 8-speed, four-wheel drive, crew cab long bed. LT model.

TRX-4--I too would like all self-dimming mirrors. I have a self-dimming rear view mirror on one of my trucks. As for the Colorado if I were buying a new truck it would be at the top of my list.

This article is simply "Chevy Advertises". Please. I know its hard to make lame obvious stories interesting but come on. All they did was park a couple Chevys. Unless its a change in marketing strategy or a really good/interesting ad we don't need stories about a truck parked at a stadium or put on a billboard.

The one I would take would be the V6, 8-speed, four-wheel drive, crew cab long bed. LT model

@TRX4tom

for the price of the LT Colorado V6 4x4 you can get a RAM V8. The RAM gives up a bit in FE but the RAM does a lot more and has a great ride (and great looks).

Sorry you have no defense for such a poor performance by the Powerstroke. Actually, it looks like the power stroke had a stroke going up against the most powerful engine in the segment, the DMAX.

"You work for the UAW."

No shame in that!

Guess which vehicle has being America's No.1 seller for 35 yrs straight?

The 2018 Equinox turbodiesel should add some sales. Funny GM still isn't offering adaptive cruise in the Equinox. The Honda CRV offered adaptive cruise in 2015.

if you add GMC and Chevy together general motors out sold ford by 10000 trucks or more.
