Our in-transit vehicles: Reserve one and get ahead of the crowd

As everyone knows, there continues to be a global shortage of new vehicles because of a shortage of parts all over the world. Those challenges affect us here in Emporia KS just as much as they do in the rest of the country. That's why you might find it difficult to get the new Chevy Silverado 1500 or the new Chevy Equinox you really want. Fortunately there's a great answer available: Our in-transit vehicles that are headed to our dealership at Longbine Auto Plaza in Emporia KS.

What exactly is an in-transit vehicle?

An in-transit vehicle is a car, truck or SUV that's already been built and is in the process of getting shipped to our dealership. These vehicles aren't yet on the lot but they will be available soon and they will be ready to drive as soon as they get here. You can look over our list of in-transit vehicles and if you find one you really like, you can reach out to us and reserve it in your name. That will mean you get the first chance to buy that vehicle when it arrives. You won't be under any obligation but you will be the first in line to drive home in that new vehicle.

What are the benefits of buying an in-transit Chevy truck or SUV?

One of the biggest advantages is that you will receive you a new Chevy Silverado 1500 or whatever you reserved in a timely manner and you know it will be in first-class condition. Unlike cars that have been sitting on our lot or have been test driven, you'll know that this vehicle will be 100% unused. In addition, you won't have to wait nearly as long as you would if you custom-ordered a vehicle because our in-transit models are already built and on their way to us. Here are examples of the kinds of great in-transit models you can put your name on.

The new Chevy Silverado 1500

The newest version of the Chevy Silverado 1500 is going to come in one of several powertrains because the Silverado offers so much variety. Amazingly enough, the base Chevy Silverado 1500 offers a 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine with 310 horsepower offers even more torque than the 5.3-liter V8, creating 430 pound-feet. The 5.3-liter V8 engine gives you 355 horsepower and can zoom from zero to 60 mph in just 6.1 seconds. The bigger 6.2-liter 8-cylinder engine gives you 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. It can go even faster, racing from zero to 60 mph in just 5.4 seconds.

Towing and payload in the Chevy Silverado 1500

The Chevy Silverado 1500 for 2023 has a maximum towing capacity of 13,300 pounds, enabling it to beat the new Ram 1500 by 550 pounds and the latest Toyota Tundra by 300 pounds.
