Let’s keep this one simple, shall we? There’s a new mid-level Chevrolet Silverado and – like me – you’re going to want it.

Let’s face it; we all want a loaded truck, with all the bells and whistles and barbed wire-trim stampings. What honest, hardworking fellow has $67,000 to spend on a luxury truck? Not me, and certainly not my coonhound, Ruger.

Smartly, Chevy looked to the middle of the market and decided throw us regular types a bone with this, the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado Custom. Starting at $33,820 … or $37,800 for the 4×4 it’s the truck you want for a price you can afford.

For that money, you get the essentials, with a couple extra tricks kicked in for good measure. A 355-horspower, 5.3-liter V8, which also happens to be the most efficient V8 in a pickup? You bet.

Chrome? Heaps of it. The Custom comes with 20-inch aluminum wheels, chrome bumpers, a body-colored top cap above the front bumper, and chrome mirror caps and door handles.

Plus it has four doors, freedom-loving cloth seats, tilt steering wheel, cruise control, power windows and door locks, and Chevy MyLink with 4G LTE Wi-Fi.

Oh and I guess I should mention, if you’re not singing the V8 tune, Chevy will sell you a Silverado Custom with the torquiest standard six-cylinder in a truck, the 4.3-liter EcoTec3 V6. So there’s that.

Champing at the bit to get ahold of this American beauty? Chevy dealers will be stocking them this month.

thule rooftop cargo boxes deals amazon november 2023 box on car

It's almost winter, which means snowy day trips and skiing, and if you pack your whole family inside one vehicle, it can be difficult to get the rest of your critical belongings (such as bikes and kayaks) to your destination. In theory, you could buy a larger car. Many families get a minivan for the explicit purpose of relieving this kind of pressure. But that's pretty extreme when you could simply expand the storage space of your current car. And with Black Friday sales like this one, putting dozens of Thule rooftop cargo boxes on big discounts, now is a good time to consider doing so. We're seeing deals were you could save $100 (or even more) or Thule rooftop cargo boxes and accessories. Just tap the button below to access the curated collection, then keep reading for our take in how to shop the sale.

Why you should shop the Thule rooftop cargo box sale
One of the first things we want you to know before you shop the Thule collection is some features that aren't immediately apparent just by looking at the cargo boxes. For example, you may be highly concerned about driving off and having your belongings (including embarrassing items like underwear) go everywhere because the box flies open. Thule boxes, however, typically snap shut with an audible click. You know your items are secure. Alternatively, items like their
