Among the growing arsenal of model information on the Pete Harkness website is a page which highlights the capabilities of the 2014 Chevy Silverado. The 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 was recently named as the North American Truck of the Year as the pickup is fresh off a complete redesign that provided the Silverado with a variety of new features and capabilities, including some refined engines that provide the pickup with superior performance and fuel economy ratings.

Another one of the large, yet efficient vehicles covered by Pete Harkness is the 2014 Chevy Equinox, which is a five-passenger SUV capable of accommodating a mix of passengers and cargo. Much like the Chevy Silverado, the Equinox offers a variety of engines, including the 2.4-liter four-cylinder, which is capable of producing a highway fuel economy rating of 32 mpg, making it one of the more efficient SUVs available through the Pete Harkness Auto Group.

Consumers seeking an efficient SUV capable of performing both on and off road are sure to find that the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee is one of the most appealing options available at Pete Harkness. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is equipped with a number of features that allow it to take on more unconventional roads, including two available V-8 engines that deliver superior power ratings. The 2014 model is also available with a diesel engine for the first time since the SUV's initial release. When equipped with the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine, the Grand Cherokee is capable of traveling up to 30 mpg on the highway.

Residents in the Quad Cities area interested in learning more about the larger trucks and SUVs in the Pete Harkness inventory are encouraged to visit the Pete Harkness website where the complete model overviews can be accessed. Questions about any of the models, or about the services provided by the auto group, can be directed to the Pete Harkness sales staff, which can be reached by phone at 815-499-4888, or through the auto group's website at www.peteharkness.com.
