Electric Chevy Silverado to Feature Huge Infotainment Screen

By Justin | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevy, chevy silverado, Chevy Silverado Miami, Miami Chevy on Friday, October 22nd, 2021 at 3:59 PM

The all-new all-electric Chevy Silverado has been receiving a lot of attention lately. The fully electric pickup truck has been getting teased more and more as it nears its full debut. General Motors will unveil the full-sized electric pickup at the Consumer Electronics Show on Wednesday, January 5th, 2022. Many automakers have been focusing on producing electric vehicles as the global climate crisis persists. General Motors is no stranger as its electric Silverado has caused many to increase their faith in the potential of electric vehicles. Automakers like Ford have been cautious in releasing electric vehicles that appear normal and conventional, something they have found much success in doing. GM has followed this pattern. The Chevy Silverado is a powerful, durable, and capable pickup truck. By turning it electric, GM continues to appeal to pickup fans. It also helps appeal to a greater number of consumers. Now with the new Silverado’s debut nearing, GM has released several teaser images that show some features of the full-sized electric pickup. One of these features is a fixed-glass roof which appears to offer more visibility. Another feature seen is a rather large infotainment screen. We’ll need to wait for more information, but we’ll dive into these new features.

Teaser Images Show Electric Silverado Infotainment Screen

The all-electric Chevy Silverado has been shown to feature a fixed-glass roof as well as a larger infotainment screen. The full-sized pickup will benefit from the increased visibility, headroom, and overall sense of space from the roof. These details come from a teaser image that was released alongside information about the CES show in 2022. The slow drip of details certainly helps build excitement and hype. Another feature seen in the electric Chevy Silverado is the addition of a new infotainment screen. 

From the teaser image, the all-new electric Chevy Silverado’s infotainment screen looks to extend towards the driver. The screen appears to be horizontally oriented with a wide curved surface. Since it’s so wide, this infotainment screen could potentially contain both the system display as well as the driver instrument panel. This would be a similar layout used in the fifth-generation Cadillac Escalade. 

In addition to the screen and roof, another feature expected to accompany the electric Silverado is a four-wheel steering system. This would enable the pickup to turn all four wheels at the same time, thus improving agility. It would also tighten the turning radius at lower speeds. Meanwhile, at higher speeds, this would greatly improve handling and stability. The four-wheel system would also improve the pickup’s trailering dynamics. From what’s been seen so far, the electric Chevy Silverado looks to be very promising as an electric pickup. New features and capabilities look to accompany the truck which will better enhance the driving experience. We’ll be waiting expectantly for GM and the debut of the electric Silverado at the CES show at the beginning of 2022.

Chevy Corvette Sees Impressive Q3 Sales, Ranks First Among Premium Sports Cars

By Justin | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevy, Chevy Corvette, Chevy Miami on Thursday, October 14th, 2021 at 7:43 PM

The Chevy Corvette recently enjoyed impressive third quarter (Q3) sales in the United States. The luxury sports car managed to surpass its previous Q3 sales by about 60 percent. Chevrolet is certainly enjoying the increased popularity as its Corvette model ranked higher than competitors by huge margins. The automaker has been turning its focus on electric vehicles lately, a move many other automakers have seemed to attempt. Chevrolet has teased its all-new all-electric Chevy Silverado and they have also hinted at a potential new electric sedan that may or may not replace the Camaro. It’s always a positive when an automaker can capitalize on its current lineup while continuing to meet consumers’ demands and interests. Electric vehicles have become a hot topic as of late given the climate crisis, but as seen with the Corvette’s sales numbers, it seems some folks are still looking to drive high-performance sports cars.

Chevy Corvette Sees Increased Sales Overall

The Chevy Corvette saw delivery numbers totaling 10,166 units in Q3 of 2021. This was an increase of 59.97 percent compared to the 6,355 units sold in Q3 of 2020. As for the entire year, the premium sports car saw sales increase about 96 percent to 24,748, compared to 12,634 the previous year. This increase was seen mainly in the first nine months of the year. These numbers allowed the Corvette to become the best-selling model in its class. Following the Corvette was the Porsche 911, then the Porsche 718, and after that came the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT in fourth. Overall, the Corvette managed to outsell all its rivals.

Corvette sales for the year included all Corvette body styles, variants, trim levels, and packages. In each quarter of 2021, the Corvette managed to post strong numbers. During each of its quarters, the Corvette accounted for at least 51 percent of the segment share. It should be noted that many competitors in the segment cost significantly more than the Corvette (the C8 starts at a base price of $58,900 [plus destination fee]). This may explain why rival sales numbers were as low as they were. Still, the Corvette managed to solidify its status as a desirable sports car. 

Given the strong sales numbers, it’s clear the Corvette C8 line has more room for growth. Higher-performance variants are still on the way. Some of these include the C8 ZO6, C8 E-Ray, C8 ZR1, and the C9 Zora. The C8 Z06 will be the first variant to launch for the 2023 Corvette model year. As these variants continue to release, it’s expected that Chevy will see even greater sales numbers for its sports car. As long as production at the GM Bowling Green plant and the GM Tonawanda Engine plant continues without pause, Chevy should continue to see its Corvette reign at the top of the sports cars sales list.

Chevrolet Picks Up The Pace In The Electrified Race

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevrolet Miami, Chevy, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, Chevy Miami, chevy silverado, Chevy Silverado Miami, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Tuesday, October 12th, 2021 at 7:20 PM

Automakers near and far are slowly making preparations to redevelop their platforms from gasoline-powered vehicles to those that are either fully electric or hybrids. This is especially so for pickup trucks, with this segment on course to becoming the most popular space for EV models. Some examples include Ford’s F-150 Lighting, Rivian R1T, Tesla’s Cybertruck, and more.

Another automaker throwing its hat into the electric pickup race is General Motors (GM), as they’ve already confirmed the resurgence of its Hummer moniker under the GMC brand, but as a fully electric truck. The main focus on the construction of this vehicle will be its 1,000 horsepower output and “luxury off-roading”, but for buyers who are looking for something a bit simpler and rugged, they can opt for the newly-teased Chevrolet Silverado.

Last week Wednesday, (Oct.6), Chevrolet said that it would introduce the electric version of the Silverado truck at the Consumer Electronics Show in 2022. The event, which is held annually in Las Vegas, Nevada, is one of the world’s prominent industry trade shows. Mary Barra, GM’s CEO is set to make the full reveal of the pickup in January, but in the meantime, here’s what you should know.

First and foremost, the Silverado will be powered by the brand’s new Ultium battery system. These packs will support the company’s next-generation electric models all across its brands, providing energy storage that range from 50 kilowatt-hours to 200 kWh. GM has said before that these batteries will provide “up to 400 miles or more on a full charge”, which mirrors the figure that the Silverado was given. This gives us reason to believe that the pickup’s battery will be the same size as the electrified Hummer.

The Silverado will be produced at GM’s Factory Zero plant by the side of the Hummer EV and the untitled GMC electric pickup.

Another point of interest is the truck’s glass roof. This optional transparent type of ceilings feeds off the recent trend of fixed glass roofs geared on vehicles such as the Tesla Model 3 and Ford Mustang Mach-E. The Hummer EV also sports a congruous “Infinity Roof”, at the same time, the Silverado’s roof will be mounted rather than removable like the Hummer’s top-frame.

In August, GM announced that the Silverado EV will involve a set of kicks going up as far as 24-inches, which is the largest pair of wheels that has ever been offered on a pickup from Factory Zero. This vehicle will also encompass available four-wheel steering, which in the same way as the electric Hummer’s system, can aid in maneuvering its way in tight spaces by lessening the turning radius and possibly even positioning the truck diagonally.

Mark Reuss, president of General Motors, made his expectations clear during a recent press call that its target customers for the battery-powered version of the Silverado will contrast from conventional pickup buyers. This would make sense as to why the company chose the CES to showcase the truck as opposed to a standalone event, but it may also indicate that what GM anticipates the truck market to evolve into as it transitions even more towards a luxury segment while keeping a considerable amount of utility. The carmaker also revealed the availability of a fleet version, which essentially is the draft horse within the lineup and usually has the groundwork as the retail model, just more centered on functionality and not so much about interior opulence.

GM still has more in store with its Silverado, some that we’ll have to wait a little longer for. However, with recent revelations relating to the company’s semi-autonomous driving functions, the pickup may be likely to become a knockout with future pickup buyers. Be on the lookout in January for the unveiling of the truck at the CES, and in the meantime…

Miami Lakes Automall has an extensive range of vehicles from Chevrolet ranging from sedans, hatchbacks, pickups, and much more! Those who are interested in any of our vehicles can simply view our online new car inventory and chat with a representative for further assistance.

Chevrolet to Retire the Camaro With Final Collector’s Edition Package

By Justin | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevy, Chevy Camaro, Chevy dealers, Chevy Miami on Friday, October 8th, 2021 at 1:42 PM

Chevrolet will be retiring the iconic Camaro. Rumors of the pony car’s inevitable demise have been floating around for a while, but Chevrolet confirmed that the Camaro will see one final Collector’s Edition Package sometime in 2024. Chevrolet has not said anything about the Camaro nameplate and whether it will continue to be used with future iterations, but there has been some talk of a potential electric sedan replacing the Camaro. This would be in line with Chevy working toward its own electric vehicles like the all-electric Chevy Silverado. Whether this electric sedan would mirror the Camaro however is still up for debate, but we’ll need more information from Chevrolet before speculating too much. For now, all we know is that the Chevy Camaro will not be around much longer. 

Chevy Camaro to be Retired

The Chevrolet Camaro has been an iconic muscle car that has spurred hype and excitement for powerful sedans. Sadly, like most things that era will have to come to an end. According to a report from Muscle Cars & Trucks, Chevy will retire the pony car in the 2024 model year. The automaker will release a Collector’s Edition package for the muscle car but no variants or Z/28 trims will come available. Fans wishing to get the latest Camaro before its final end will have to look out for the final edition as Chevy will only build 2,000 of them. Some good news however is that customers will be able to purchase trimmings for the LT, SS, and ZL1 models.

The Collector’s Edition Package for the Chevy Camaro will be the final iteration of the Camaro. Camaro fans will still have plenty of gear options like stripes and unique badges, but the muscle car comes in limited availability. Another note about the Collector’s Edition Package Camaro is that it will come available with a yellow exterior color. Naturally, a paint job can be considered, but for fans hoping for different colors, there won’t be so much luck. Still, one last chance to purchase a Camaro is better than none. We’ll have to see what Chevy does in the future, but it looks like a sendoff will be in order. And as previously mentioned, Chevy hasn’t said much about the Camaro’s end, but they did mention work on an electric sedan. That may be the only hope Camaro fans have left for a return of the muscle car, but chances are that nothing will beat out the original.

The 2022 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban Dare To Indulge You Just A Bit More

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevrolet Miami, Chevy, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, Chevy Suburban, Chevy Tahoe in Miami, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers, Uncategorized on Tuesday, October 5th, 2021 at 8:48 PM

The Chevrolet company is preparing to revamp their Tahoe and Suburban SUVs for their 2022 model, but don’t worry, they aren’t throwing out the baby with the bath water. Instead, the automaker is simply making their formula more agreeable to a larger crowd, and they’re doing this by making their 6.2-L V8 engine more available. While this motor was previously reserved as the standard engine on the top-ranking High Country trim, and not even an option on the others, it’s now being unlocked on the RST, Z71, and Premier levels. Now more buyers will get to enjoy a thrilling ride with the powertrains output of 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque.

Last month (September 10th), we discussed that this engine might require additional options, with the exclusion of the Premier. The Premier model with the V8 motor has a standalone option. At the same time, RST buyers will need to get the Sport Performance Package, while buyers of the Z71 will have to get either the Z71 Off-Road Package or mixture of packages such as Off-Road Performance, Off-Road Capability, Max Trailering, and Luxury. 

On the Z71 trim, the new electronic limited-slip differential is included in the Off-Road Performance Package, which results in better responsiveness from the rear wheels while driving when the roads are slippery. Those who opt for this package also means that they’ll get the Max Trailering and Luxury Packages too.

The availability of other two engine options in the lineup don’t change, specifically the 5.3-liter V8 with 355 hp and 383 lb-ft, and the 3.0-liter diesel with 277 hp and 460 lb-ft.

Inhouse, beginning with the LT model and up, the gauge cluster expands to a fully digital 12-3 inch display with four preset configurations. Google Automotive has been implemented into the vehicle systems for better integration of particular apps and services. This involves voice commands, which means without plugging in his or her phone, passengers can use Google Assistnt’s voice control to make changes, such as with the stereo volume, the radio stations, or the climate control. The 10.2-inch infotainment touchscreen is brought over, but it will show up to 13 different camera angles when matched with a trailer that it’s compatible with, and a suitable Trailering package. If connected, these images include a a rear trailer view, picture-in-picture side view, and the scene inside a trailer

As part of the brand’s Safety Assist Suite, all trims are geared with Front and Rear Park Assist and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning. It also comes with five surplus driver assist technologies, and even Buckle to Drive. There are five new designs available on particular trims, while each Tahoe and Suburban have three new colors for buyers to select from: Auburn Metallic, Dark Ash Metallic, and Evergreen Gray Metallic.

It’s worth noting that ordering some of these options might be contingent on the current happenings regarding the chip shortage, possibly having you faced with either lessening some items off your shopping list or just being patient. The 2022 Tahoe and Suburban will begin their production at General Motors Arlington, Texas facility in October, with pricing being announced at a later date.

2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer Earns Top Safety Pick+ Rating from IIHS

By Justin | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevy Blazer, Chevy Dealership, Chevy Trailblazer on Thursday, September 30th, 2021 at 7:39 PM

The 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer was recently awarded the Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The compact crossover SUV has been a fairly popular choice for many SUV fans. Its affordable price and reliable handling make it an excellent choice. The spacious interior and stylish exterior also earn it points. The inclusion of Chevrolet’s latest safety package, Chevy Safety Assist, has raised the standards of the Chevy Trailblazer. With this safety package and additional safety features, the 2022 Trailblazer managed to pass the IIHS’s safety tests with a good or acceptable rating across all trims. Most vehicles manage to receive a Top Safety Pick award but to attain a Top Safety Pick+ award, the vehicle must have a positive evaluation across all its trims. The 2022 Chevy Trailblazer did exactly that. 

2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer Passes IIHS Tests With Top Ratings

The 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer underwent several tests and inspections to obtain the Top Safety Pick+ award. These included side, driver-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, roof strength, and head restraint tests. Alongside all these tests, the Trailblazer underwent a test of its front crash prevention system. The Chevy Safety Assist package includes all these safety metrics, so it’s no wonder the Trailblazer did as well as it did. One last measure for the safety tests is the headlights. These were evaluated as acceptable and good.

The 2022 Chevy Trailblazer hit all the marks of the IIHS safety tests. The Chevy Safety Assist package was responsible. Chevrolet recently updated its safety package to include more features and alerts. Some of these include automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, forward-collision alerts, front pedestrian braking, lane-departure warnings, and automatic Intellibeam high beams. Depending on trim level, the Trailblazer may have additional safety features. These might include an HD rear vision camera, lane change and side blind zone alerts, rear cross-traffic alerts, rear park assist, adaptive cruise control, and OnStar safety and security coverage.

The 2022 Chevy Trailblazer also earned a top five-star crash rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). This comes after the compact SUV’s previous four-star crash rating. The current higher rating was due to Chevrolet’s Safety Assist. The package improved the Trailblazer’s safety standards with hardware and software updates. These all proved to be very beneficial given the 2022 Trailblazer’s safety ratings and evaluations. The 2022 Chevy Trailblazer starts at $21,600 MSRP (plus destination fee). With its stylish exterior, comfortable handling, and top-notch safety ratings it’s a choice to consider.

The 2022 Chevrolet Silverado Brings On A Larger Screen Among Several Features

The 2022 Silverado Get’s A New 13.4-inch Interior Screen

The 2022 Chevy Silverado pickup truck has been refashioned in more ways than one. The new kid in town brings a slew of changes and advancements over its 2021 predecessor and the 2022 Silverado Limited trim. The highlighting feature among these improvements is an interior design that has been reworked from top to bottom and involves a new 13.4-inch infotainment screen.

This standard new and larger infotainment technology is geared on 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 models, like the LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, ZR2, LTZ, and High Country. The 13.4-inch gadget is set to come our way and act as a replacement for the 8-inch screen previously featured on the 2019’s to the interim period of 2022’s Limited models. The new and exciting interior setup also involves wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, together with built-in tech features from Google, like Google Assistant, Google Maps, and Google Play.

As you can see from the picture below, the larger front-row screen expands horizontally across the dashboard and is split in half, with the left side of the display dominated by virtual user interface buttons, and the right encompassing features regarding the directions and map. Additionally, there is a physical Home button that sits at the left of the volume knob, along with a set of USB ports (also involving one USB-C port) in the center of the stack located to the right of the climate controls.

On its own, the screen is fixed with a “floating” design that carries it out of the center stack, while also implementing an air vent by the left side of the driver’s seat, as well as a storage bin above and in the back of the screen.

For the time being, there hasn’t been anything announced for other models, like the WT, Custom, and Custom Trail Boss. One should know that these trims have been previously geared as a standard with a 7-inch screen for the 2022-interim Chevy Silverado 1500 Limited.

Surplus updates that you’ll find noteworthy for this upcoming 2022 revamped model year include a new 12.3-inch configurable instrument cluster, which is geared as standard on all restyled 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 models furnished with the tuned up interior design. Furthermore, buyers will have access to General Motor’s semi-autonomous Super Cruise driver-assist system, found on the High Country trim level. This particular model will come with assisted trailering capabilities and the luxury that you’ll already come to know and love.

Miami Lakes Chevy

The new and improved 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 pickup truck is set to open in December. Production for this vehicle is scheduled to embark in the first quarter of next year, and it’s expected that the company will give us more scoop within a few weeks. 

When the time comes to purchase your adventurous car, be sure to do it at Miami Lakes Automall. We carry an extensive range of vehicles in various shapes and sizes, as well as prices.

GM Defense Wins Contract to Build Super Suburbans

By Justin | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevy, Chevy Suburban on Friday, September 24th, 2021 at 2:21 PM

General Motors just received a big win. The automaker has been making headlines recently with its rollout of all-new vehicles like the Chevy Silverado ZR2 and the all-electric Chevy Silverado. Now the automaker is making more news as its subsidiary GM Defense takes on a new $36.4 million contract from the state department. This contract dictates that GM Defense will create heavy-duty Suburbans for the Diplomatic Security Service (DSS). Federal law enforcement and security departments will make use of the tough defense-oriented vehicles. This is huge news as the automaker will work to produce 10 of the super SUVs and eventually more should the project go well.

GM Defense to Produce Super Suburban

GM Defense, a subsidiary of General Motors, will start work on heavy-duty Suburbans in the spring of 2022. The subsidiary company was only recently formed in 2017, but it has already made quite a lot of headway. In 2020, the United States Army awarded GM Defense its first contract worth $214.3 million. This contract was to build Infantry Squad Vehicles (ISV) which would be based on the 2020 Chevrolet ZR2 pickup. These ISVs were designed for rapid ground mobility and are capable of carrying a nine-soldier infantry squad. Now the GM Defense subsidiary is working toward another contract. About this new project, the president of GM Defense Steve duMont said,

“Our development contract win speaks to our long-standing legacy of exceeding transportation capabilities and our new, HD Suburban will deliver government-specific advanced mobility solutions to meet the needs of DSS,” said Steve duMont, president of GM Defense.

GM Defense will use GM’s commercial vehicle architecture to design the new Suburbans for the DSS. The architecture will provide the framework for the body, exterior, interior, and brakes of the government-issue Suburbans. The new Suburbans will feature a unique body-on-frame chassis and suspension. These vehicles will utilize the latest in technology and manufacturing to ensure the government vehicles will have increased performance and greater ground weight. When producing vehicles for the state defense department, a certain level of detail is expected compared to commercial vehicles. It’s expected that GM Defense will aim to make the toughest and most capable vehicles for the department. 

The GM Defense factory is located in Concord, North Carolina. The subsidiary delivered its first Infantry Squad Vehicle in October of 2020. It will continue to produce these ISVs as well as the new heavy-duty Suburbans. GM has landed on a great opportunity here so be on the lookout for these heavy-duty vehicles as well as the ISVs.

The main tailgate is lowered from a button in the cab or on the key fob. The main tailgate comes with a load stop, which prevents cargo from sliding out. The easy action function also makes way for owners to reach closer in the bed. A full-width steed may be opened, as well as an inner gate load stop. Moreover, there’s an inner gate that has a standing-height work surface.

GM to Debut All-New Off-Road Chevrolet Silverado ZR2

By Justin | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevy, chevy silverado, Chevy Silverado Miami on Thursday, September 16th, 2021 at 7:07 PM
Chevy Silverado ZR2

General Motors (GM) is getting ready to show off its latest pickup, the all-new off-road 2022 Chevrolet Silverado ZR2. This release comes in the midst of a global transition to electric vehicles. Most automakers have been aiming to produce their own version of an electric vehicle. GM has been teasing the all-electric Chevy Silverado and rumors have been spreading about a potential electric Camaro. With the all-new off-road 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2, GM is hoping to ramp up excitement and anticipation for its future lineup. The debut of a fully electric pickup has garnered the most interest, but GM has been sure to keep any information under wraps. For now, the automaker is providing updates and adding new features to its current lineup. Until more information is released about other vehicles, we’ll have to stick to pure speculation. The automaker has released details about the 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 however, so we’ll dive into the new updates.

All-New Off-Road 2022 Chevrolet Silverado ZR2

GM unveiled the all-new off-road 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 ahead of the NFL’S first game of the season between the Dallas Cowboys and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. GM has enjoyed a lot of interest recently for its Silverado lineup, but this move to reach the greatest number of eyes was solid. According to the director of Chevrolet marketing Kelly MacDonald, about 60% of Silverado sales have been off-road-focused pickups. With so much interest in off-road capable pickups, it’s no wonder GM is updating its lineup. 

The all-new off-road 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 will be getting a new exterior design and several new features and technologies. GM will update the pickup’s exterior with slimmer headlights and a refreshed grille. These will help display the brand’s logo more prominently. The new designs are similar to those of the updated 2022 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban, both of which share the same platform as the Silverado. Inside the Chevy Silverado ZR2, consumers will note more technologies such as an e-shifter. A larger infotainment screen and heads-up display will also accompany the new pickup.

The last addition to the all-new Chevy Silverado ZR2 will be safety and driver-assist features. These will consist of lane-keep assist, lane departure alerts, forward collision alerts, and automatic emergency braking. GM will also be including its new Super Cruise hands-free highway driving system. This new system will use sensors, radars, and cameras to help drivers better navigate the road. Pricing for the all-new off-road 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 has not been determined yet, however, the starting price for the Silverado lineup ranges from $30,000 to $60,000 MSRP (plus destination fee). The new pickup will most likely fall between these prices. Off-road pickups offer the function of a pickup with the versatility of an off-roader. GM is providing consumers with the best of both worlds. Consumers will be happy to see GM expanding and updating its lineup.

Motor Bella Auto Show

This month, from September 21st through September 26th, the Motor Bella outdoor auto show will be held at the M1 Concourse circuit in Pontiac, Michigan. General Motors will be among other automakers showcasing its new 2022 GMC Hummer EV pickup.

The Detroit Dealers Association helped to put together this experimental event after downtown Detroit’s annual North American International Auto Show had to come to a halt because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. According to the Association, this show will have over 400 vehicles on display, ride-and-drive amenities, and the showcasing of next-generation car technologies.

Onlookers will have the opportunity to see conventional auto show exhibitions, together with ride-along events and even charity vehicle giveaways.

At the General Motors booth during the event, attendees will see a “showcase the company’s rich motorsports legacy,” as said by the show’s organizers, indicating that the car maker will feature its previous race cars that were deemed successful during their prime, and maybe even race cars of today, such as the favored Corvette C8.R and Cadillac DPi-V.R. Resting at the site of the motorsports display will be the electric products of the current day as well as the future. These products will also involve the 2022 GMC Hummer EV pickup. Additionally, the manufacturer will conduct a media luncheon and panel discussion, with the topic based on legacy, and the future of racing and motorsports within the company.

Moreover, the Lost Corvettes will have 6,000-square-foot of dedicated space at the Motor Bella show. It’s here where 12 reconditioned classic Corvette cars, which are model years ranging from 1953 to 1989, will be presented. Car blog, GM Authority was previously the Lost Corvettes, used to be part of an art project conjured up by pop artist Peter Max. Max planned on using the cars as blank canvases for pop art pieces, however, this was an idea that never came to fruition, and ultimately left the Vette car to collect dust in parking garages located in Manhattan. 

Finally, a non-profit organization, dubbed The Corvette Heroes came to save the day after discovering and purchasing these cars and are now giving them away to veterans and military families through the national sweepstakes campaign. 36 cars from the assortment will be given away and will also raise money for a non-profit organization called Stand for the Troops.

As previously stated, Motor Bella will come out swinging on September 21st, 2021 and will end on September 26th. Those who plan on attending should be on the lookout for the event’s phone app to launch before the event starts next Tuesday, which is said to be the “ultimate go-to resource with maps, exhibitor info, schedules and more,” according to the organizers.

New Features For 2022

As with many automakers, the Chevrolet company performed a few nips and tucks on their new vehicles, particularly the upcoming Tahoe SUV and its extended Suburban sibling. Improvements that have been made the inside (all but base LS model) include a new 12-inch digital gauge display fenced in by a conventional analog tacho- and speedometer. These trims also receive a standard navigation system from the 10.2-inch central infotainment touchscreen. Additional standard features include Lane-Keeping Assist and parking sensors. At the same time, Reverse Automatic Braking is included in the high-ranking trims’ Enhanced Display and Alert package. Lastly, the 6.2-liter V8 option stretches to the ZR1, RST and Premier models, but with the exclusion of the Premier, you’ll need to select one or more packages.

Size Increase and Cargo Capacity

Last year, parent company, General Motors gave their full-size SUVs a complete revamp after nearly thirty years. These enhancements included a highly-anticipated switch to the independent rear suspension, which in turn allowed for extra interior space and cargo capacity. The 2022 Tahoe increased its overall length by 6.7 inches, along with 4.9 inches of its wheelbase. Meanwhile, the Suburban added 1.3 inches to its length and an incredible 4.1 inches to its wheelbase.

The Tahoe’s interior gains 3 inches of legroom in the second row, and a surplus of 10.1 inches in the third row partly due to the lower floor. The Surban also increases its space by a bit over 2 inches of legroom in each row.

Cargo space also made great improvements. In the Tahoe SUV, cargo measurements have increased by 10.2 cubic feet (specifically 25.5 cubes), while the Suburban increased its space by 2.2 cubic feet (overall 41.5 cubes).

Performance and Towing Specifications

There are three different engine types to pick for the 2022 Tahoe and Suburban. The entry-level motor is a naturally aspirated 5.3-liter V8, which has an output of 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. It’s matched with a 10-speed automatic transmission and has an available rear-wheel-drive (RWD) or four-wheel-drive (4WD).

Optional on the Z71, RST, Premier and High Country models is another naturally aspirated V8, but a 6.2-liter. It musters up 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. As with the 5.3-liter, it includes the same type of automatic and drive systems.

Additionally, the automaker is offering a unique diesel 3.0-liter inline-six engine, which is only one like in its class. It has an output of 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, and also shares the 10-speed automatic.

Towing capacities range from 7,500 and 8,000 lbs subject to body style, engine, and drivetrain. The tow package also increases capacity with each model, but only by a small margin.

Available Features

Basic gear that you’ll find in the beloved Chevrolet SUVs are the 5.3-liter V8, engine and transmission coolers, and a limited-slip differential. External features involve 18-inch alloy wheels, heated side mirrors, running boards, rear parking sensors, LED headlights and remote start. Internal gadgets encompass three-zone climate control, eight-way power driver seat and six-way power passenger seat, the 10-inch infotainment screen, 4.2-inch screen in the instrument cluster, a six-speaker sound system, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, driver assist features.

On higher trims, like the Z71, drivers get to revel in the charming and exclusive front fascia and bumper, which provides the car with a more aggressive appearance. It also includes hill-descent control, 20-inch wheels, all-terrain tires and a skid plate. Then, the luxurious High Country comes with the 6.2-liter V8, magnetic and air suspension, 22-inch wheels, 360-degree cameras, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring and lane keep assist, rear camera mirror, leather heated and cooled front seats, heated steering wheel, heated second-row seats, power-folding rear seats, a large instrument panel screen and head-up display, 10-speaker Bose sound system, and wireless phone charging.

On top of this, there are optional towing assist on both SUVs, which have cameras that have up to nine different views for maneuvering and monitoring one’s trailer. They are standard with a trailer guidance feature along with a rear-view camera. There’s even an app on the infotainment system that allows users to store information about their trailer and perform various checks as they hook up the motor home.

Safety and Driver Assist Features

At last, the Chevy Tahoe and Suburban advocate for safety as they provide owners with an array of technologies, such as the standard automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist, front and rear parking sensors, automatic high-beam headlights, and a rear-seat reminder. Optional technologies (standard on higher trims) include reverse automatic emergency braking, blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, parking sensors and adaptive cruise control.

General Motors and AT&T To Team Up For 5G

By Justin | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevy on Thursday, September 9th, 2021 at 6:52 PM

General Motors is setting its sights on the future with its latest announcement. The automotive company will be teaming up with AT&T to provide 5G connectivity to its lineup of vehicles over the next decade. 5G is the fifth generation of cellular technology. It has the potential to be 100 times faster than 4G. This partnership between GM and AT&T will mean that GM’s lineup will receive better software performance, enhanced navigation, and faster streaming capabilities. 

General Motors Aims for 5G

5G is the next level for cellular technology. Many companies have been touting 5G as a revolutionary technology that will significantly improve data usage and connectivity. GM recognizes the capabilities of 5G, so it makes sense that they’re looking to incorporate it into their own vehicles. The only problem is that the infrastructure to house the 5G technology is not where it needs to be. This along with connectivity issues has caused some hesitation. For GM, they are looking toward the year 2024 to fully incorporate 5G technology. About this issue, the executive director of 5G connectivity at GM Thomas DeMaria said, 

“It’s really not a function of what’s missing in the vehicles,” said Thomas DeMaria. “It’s more around the maturity of the 5G technology, and also the readiness of 5G.”

Thomas DeMaria, Executive Director of 5G Connectivity at GM

General Motors recognizes that 5G technology plays an important role in providing consumers software updates and that it can drastically enhance their experience. Since it is so important, GM plans to wait until 2024 so that any issues will be resolved and connectivity will work as intended. The automaker will start the introduction to its lineup in the same year, 2024. Chevrolet, Buick, Cadillac, and GMC vehicles will all come equipped with 5G technology. In addition, GM will update all of its model year 2019 and newer vehicles with the 5G technology. This will improve connectivity speeds and enhance vehicle software performance. DeMaria speaks more on the potential of 5G. 

“The network in the vehicle systems are increasingly relying on what I would call data augmentation,” DeMaria said. “So autonomous functions, ADAS [advanced driver assist systems] functions, and other connected services, including navigation systems, increasingly are relying on supplemental data coming in from the network. So we’re going to continue to see that trend.”

Thomas DeMaria

The smart technology that operates within vehicles will become more advanced as time goes on. Self-driving cars are a hot topic that seems to move closer to reality as time goes on. They are a great example of the potential of 5G technology as their safety information relies on a fast connection. The AI used in vehicles will require the strength provided by 5G, but as of yet, the global networks in the US are not ready. GM is getting consumers ready for the next generation of technology. Their partnership with AT&T will provide their vehicles with the latest in technology and software so that consumers get the best for their buck.

Top 5 Road Trip Features On The 2021 Chevy Suburban

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevy, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, Chevy Suburban, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Friday, September 3rd, 2021 at 3:47 PM

Just because the kids are going back to school doesn’t mean that you have to end your summer fun, especially for those of you who are “working from home”. The 2021 Chevrolet Suburban is the perfect full-sized SUV for your road-trippin’ excursions. It’s filled with plenty of features that are guaranteed to augment your getaway experience such as wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Zero Gravity Seats, Wi-Fi Hotspot, and much more. Here are the Top 5 Road Trip Features On The 2021 Chevy Suburban.

Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

The High Country trim is best of the best on the 2021 Suburban SUV, and with it includes the brand’s Infotainment 3 system paired with Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It allows users to make use of features like Waze and Spotify, as well as make phone calls and send text messages. Wireless support is very convenient on longer trips where drivers may switch seats while taking turns driving. The system is also user-friendly and hardly distracting while your hands are on the wheel.

4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot

Nowadays, having poor cell service or lack of Wi-Fi is almost considered to be on the same level as losing an arm, you just can’t function without it. Luckily, all models on the Chevy Suburban include 4G LTE integration with in-vehicle, ensuring that you and your passengers are always connected. Owners also get to take advantage of the 1-month trial, which involves 3BG of data, and can even opt for an additional plan after this trial ends.

You don’t have to worry about hearing “Are we there yet?” one too many times, as kids and teens will be able to stay in touch with friends or see what’s trending on TikTok without having to use their data.

Heated and Ventilated Seats

Third on our list are 12-way power front seats with available heated and ventilated functionality. This feature is perfect either for those living in warmer climates like Florida or cooler areas like Colorado. You don’t have to worry about making various pit stops to avoid harsh temperatures, because this tool keeps front seat passengers comfortable no matter what condition. Additionally, High Country models also offers this technology for seats in the second row.

Backup and Rearview Mirror Camera

It’s safe to say that back up cameras are considered to be a common feature in most new vehicles, however, the Chevy company does it right by inputting a surround view system, which is especially helpful when maneuvering in tight parking spots or avoiding pedestrians. Other camera angles allow one to see the SUV sky-high or how close they are to a curb.

As usual, the High Country trim cranks up the heat by switching to video display by flipping the mirror up, in which you’ll see a live feed from the back of you. It allows drivers to see a clear view of traffic behind them while the trunk is stuffed with suitcases.

Lots of Charging Ports

Having LTE Wi-Fi isn’t the only way to stay connected. The 2021 Suburban is loaded with charging ports, with access provided in the front and second row. More specifically, front row occupants have access to USB ports on both sides and a wireless charger. Meanwhile, second-row and even third row passengers include USB-C chargers.

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

This only scratches the surface of what the big and bad 2021 Chevy Suburban can do, find out more of what it has to offer by visiting Miami Lakes Chevrolet. We carry a wide range of vehicles from the brand, including their full-sized SUV. If after searching through our new car inventory, you like what you see, feel free to chat with one of our representatives for further assistance.

GM Files New Trademark Application for Grand Blazer

By Justin | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevy, Chevy Blazer, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami FL on Thursday, September 2nd, 2021 at 5:11 PM

General Motors has been stirring up excitement lately with a new trademark application filed in Argentina. It has many speculating as to whether GM will undergo a larger Chevy Grand Blazer or whether it will make an exclusive vehicle for the Southern American country. Chevrolet has been making headlines with its new all-electric 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 which it hopes will compete with Ford’s F-150 Lightning. A Chevy Grand Blazer could compete with Ford’s Bronco as well, so this may be a good opportunity for the automaker. Recently, Chevy has been updating its vehicles like the 2022 Chevy Tahoe and 2022 Chevy Suburban with new off-road packages and safety features as seen with the 2022 Chevy Trailblazer. Chevrolet has a chance to create more enthusiasm with this new trademark, but we’ll have to wait for more information to determine the route GM will take.

Is There a New Chevy Blazer in the Works?

General Motors recently filed a new trademark application in Argentina for the name “Grand Blazer.” This has raised interest as some have speculated that a Chevy Blazer that returns to its rugged roots could be in the works. The current crossover Chevy Blazer provides good performance and handling, but it isn’t a true off-road vehicle like the original. If Chevrolet has plans for a more rugged Chevy Blazer, it could do well in the off-road sphere against vehicles like the Ford Bronco and Jeep Wrangler. 

Chevrolet submitted their new trademark application with the Argentina National Institute of Industrial Property. There weren’t too many details included in the application aside from the “Grand Blazer” title. This doesn’t leave much to go off of, but typically “Grand” implies a larger or more luxurious vehicle. The flip side is that GM isn’t doing much with the new trademark, which would be a little disappointingly but somewhat understandable. The Chevrolet Grand Blazer title has been used in Southern American markets as a rebadged version of the Chevrolet Tahoe up until about 2019 so a Chevrolet Grand Blazer could be made exclusively for this Southern market. Countries like Argentina, Brazil, and Venezuela have enjoyed these vehicles before so they may be getting a new one. This is plausible as GM did file the application in Argentina, but we’ll have to see. 

One more theory about the new trademark application is a new three-row version of the Chevy Blazer. This three-row version is currently sold exclusively in China. The US has a Chevy Blazer with only two rows of seats so the Grand title could add additional room. Whichever direction GM takes, it will have an impact on competitors and potentially entice new consumers.

The 2022 Chevy Camaro Is Back In Action In More Ways Than One

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevrolet Miami, Chevy, Chevy Camaro, Chevy Camaro Miami, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Thursday, August 26th, 2021 at 7:34 PM

The 2022 Chevy Camaro Is Finally In Production

We’ve recently learned that the Chevrolet company is bringing their 2022 Chevrolet Camaro into production at the GM Lansing Grand River assembly plant in Lansing, Michigan GM Authority. Due to the current microchip shortage impacting various automakers, including Chevy, it has contributed to the delay of General Motors (GM) with the Cadillac CT4 and Cadillac CT5, along with the upcoming Camaro vehicle.

Owing to this delay, inventory for the 2022 muscle car went down, which also contributed to the decrease in Camaro sales. More specifically, car site, GM Authority, reported last month that these Carmo sales went down to a 9 percent segment share during the second quarter of last year.

These year-to-date 2021 Camaro sales came up to 9,881 units, which is a decrease of 29 percent as opposed to 2020’s calendar year of 13,860 units. These shares come up to 14 percent, which is down 2020 percent reported in 2020.

The 2022 Camaro is in its seventh model year and has received a few beautifications and updates as opposed to the previous year. Production of this vehicle was initially set this year, Monday, June 14th, but that date was eventually pushed back.

These augmentations involve the adding of two new exterior colors, along with discontinuing two other exterior options, specifically Crush, which is an orange hue using the paint code G16, with the addition of Shock, a green-yellow with the paint code GKO. New options include Rapid Blue, which we saw at the Daytona race, NASCAR Beef It’s What’s For Dinner 300, last February. The second color is Vivid Orange Metallic.

Other features that we’re saying bye to include the LT 1LE Track Performance Package and the 20-inch Caliente wheelset.

Live Configurations 

The news of the 2022 Chevy Camaro goes even further as the company has launched an online configurator tool, enabling loyalists to make their own distinctive personalization to the pony car.

Similar to other configurators of GM, this one, in particular, allows its users to select from either the Coupe or Convertible body types and choose their desired trim level. The specific models that will be brought forth from the previous Camaro involve 1LS, 1LT, 2LT, 3LT, LT1, 1SS, 2SS, and ZL1. Buyers can also choose colors for the exterior and interior, as well as packages and options.

An example of what one could do with the configurator is to put Rapid Blue as an exterior color for the 1SS Coupe, with Medium Ash Gray for the interior upholstery. Another is to add on Black Accent Exterior Package, which encompasses a satin black painted front splitter and side rockers, along with 20-inch split-spoke Satin Black wheels. 

The upcoming Camaro is certainly geared up and will require that buyers give up $56,920, (plus destination fee) for the base price, as well as $4,420 for selected packages. Additionally, selected options require $7,815, (plus destination fee).

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

When the time comes to purchase your spanking new 2022 Chevy Camaro, be sure to do it at Miami Lakes Automall. We sell a wide range of vehicles from the brand, including that of the muscle car. Those who are interested in this model or any of our other vehicles can simply view our online new car inventory and chat with a representative for further assistance.

By Justin | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy Suburban, Chevy Tahoe in Miami on Thursday, August 26th, 2021 at 6:21 PM

Chevrolet is bringing a new performance package to the 2022 Chevy Tahoe and 2022 Chevy Suburban. This will consist of an off-road performance package that will upgrade the family-sized SUV’s durability as well as give them a bit of kick. The two full-sized SUVs recently received new designs and features in 2021 to their cabin and exterior, so this latest package will add more overall capability. It will feature upgrades to the engine and improve handling and control. Chevrolet is offering something for all consumers with this latest package. Families looking for something sturdy but still safe and reliable are sure to love this new package deal.

2022 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban Off-Road Package

The 2022 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban are getting improvements to their engines and to their suspension and control. These will be included in an off-road performance package for the Z71 trims. The performance packages will come available as optional equipment. They will feature a new 6.2L V8 engine and dual twin polished stainless-steel exhaust tips. Currently, the Chevy Tahoe and Suburban feature a 5.3L V8 gasoline engine capable of 355 horsepower and 383lb-ft of torque. The new 6.2L V8 will bring the horsepower and torque to 420 and 460 respectively. Alongside the new 6.2L V8 engine is a 3.0L turbo-diesel Duramax engine. This will produce 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. It will provide consumers with a more fuel-efficient and torque-rich engine. All three engines will be paired with General Motors’ hydra-matic 10-speed automatic transmission.

In addition to the off-road performance package, consumers will need to select the off-road capability package. This extra package will improve suspension and control for the 2022 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban. It includes magnetic ride control, air ride adaptive suspension, and an electronic limited-slip differential. All of this will improve stability and enhance control so drivers can feel safe and secure. Chevrolet will begin production on the 2022 Chevy Tahoe and 2022 Chevy Suburban on October 4th, 2021. The Chevy Tahoe Z71 trim will be available for $61,900 (plus destination fee) and the Chevy Suburban Z71 trim will be available for $59,200 MSRP (plus destination fee). Both family-sized SUVs provide consumers with the best in function and with their latest improvements, the best in cabin space and cargo storage.

All-New All-Electric Chevy Silverado to Feature Rear-Axle Steering

By Justin | Posted in Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Miami, Chevy, chevy silverado, Chevy Silverado Miami on Thursday, August 19th, 2021 at 4:54 PM

Chevrolet has been making headlines with its plans to compete with automakers like Ford and Tesla. The automaker has released some pretty tough vehicles like the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500, for example. Now, the automaker is aiming its sights on a new electric pickup, the all-new all-electric Chevy Silverado. Chevrolet has said the new electric pickup is set to enter production in early 2023. That doesn’t mean the automaker can’t tease consumers with hints and rumors about its specifications. The latest of these come directly from Chevrolet as it announced that the fully electric Chevy Silverado will feature optional rear-axle steering. Additionally, Chevrolet stated that the new electric pickup will have up to 400 miles of range. We’ll have to wait for more information about the pickup, but from what Chevrolet stated, we can speculate about the electric Silverado and what Chevy plans to do with it.

Rear-Axle Steering for the Chevy Silverado

The all-new all-electric Chevy Silverado will come available with optional rear-axle steering. This inclusion will tighten the pickup’s turning radius by allowing the rear wheels to turn in the opposite direction of the front wheels. This feature is similar to the one seen with the electric GMC Hummer, however, it isn’t likely that the new electric Silverado will have the same functionality. The GMC Hummer EV features a crab walk of sorts where it uses all four wheels to move freely, even diagonally. The electric Chevy Silverado will utilize the rear-axle steering to increase its maneuverability, but consumers shouldn’t expect such function and mobility as shown with the EV Hummer.  

The fully electric Chevy Silverado will utilize General Motors’ Ultium battery platform. GM plans to use this platform for its future electric vehicles. For the electric Silverado, multiple powertrain configurations and battery pack sizes will be available. Chevrolet stated that the new electric pickup will have up to 400 miles of range. This battery platform will help ensure that. Chevrolet has also stated that the new pickup will come available in several work-oriented trims. More highly equipped trims will also be available. The last note Chevyrolet shared is that the Chevy Silverado will feature optional 24-inch wheels. Production of the all-new all-electric Chevy Silverado is set for 2023. We will have to wait for more teasers and information, but from what we’ve seen, the electric pickup is looking to cause an upset among the competition.

Revamped 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 to Debut Soon

By Justin | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet Miami, Chevy, Chevy dealers in Miami, chevy silverado, Chevy Silverado Miami on Thursday, August 12th, 2021 at 5:59 PM

The 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 is getting a new look. The newly revamped full-size pickup will be unveiled on September 9th, 2021. Production of the pickup will begin later in 2021 on September 20th and September 27th. For now, Chevy fans can get a closer look at some of the new features being offered.

What’s New for the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500?

The 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 will be getting several improvements to its interior and exterior. The full-sized pickup will also be getting a new architecture platform that will provide new technology features. Inside the refreshed 2022 Silverado, drivers will find an overhauled cabin with a new dash, center stack, and center console. A large infotainment screen and a digital gauge cluster also come equipped inside the pickup. Another change being made will be to the traditional column gear shifter. It will be getting replaced with a new electronic gear select system.

Looking at the exterior of the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500, several minor changes can be seen. One change is a revision to the front fascia. Additional changes to the full-sized pickup include new headlamps, a redesigned tailgate, and different taillights. These will give the new pickup a distinct look that sets it apart from previous iterations.

New Global B Architecture System

One of the most drastic changes to the new 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 is that it will be migrating to GM’s new Global B electrical architecture system. This new architecture will enable over-the-air updates, a feature many automakers are introducing. This new over-the-air update system will allow GM to offer consumers the latest technology features. One of these features is GM’s hands-free Super Cruise drive system which provides drivers with a level 2 autonomous system. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, levels of autonomous technology range from 1-5. Since GM’s driver-assist system is a level 2, this means that it will offer semi-autonomous driver assistance. Drivers will be able to remove their hands from the steering wheel during extended periods of driving, but they should still remain alert and engaged to the road. 

The 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 will also come alongside a new trim, the Silverado ZR2. This trim will feature an upgraded suspension, knobby tires, and underbody skid plates for better off-road performance. The full-sized pickup will debut on September 9th, 2021, but reservations have been made available already. Production of the pickup will begin on September 20th, 2021 at the GM Silao plant in Mexico as well as at the GM Fort Wayne Assembly plant in Indiana on September 27th, 2021. A price hasn’t yet been determined for the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500, but estimates put the pickup between a range of $29,000-$35,000 MSRP (plus destination fee).

New Patent Images Suggest That An Electric Chevrolet Is Coming Our Way

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevrolet Miami, Chevy, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, Chevy Equinox in Miami, Chevy Miami, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Tuesday, August 10th, 2021 at 2:41 PM

Recently, the Chevrolet company published a design patent that demonstrates what could possibly be the next-generation of their Chevrolet Equinox electric SUV. The revamped platform will alter its design and technologies, and we can guess that this new crossover will have to carry a different moniker, but for the time being, it’s certain that this mid-size vehicle will be the electric equivalent of the current model.

Taking into account General Motors’ (GM) position on electrics versus hybrids, we can deduce that these recent publications of the Equinox crossover are a direct reflection of a vehicle that totally does away with relying on gasoline. To further explain, the car company already said that it wants to hone in on efforts towards vehicles that are fully electric, and that its studies reveal customers don’t particularly love hybrids.

Moreover, the illustrations show that the vehicle has a closed front end, which almost mirrors that of the Chevrolet Bolt EV and EUV, along with the Cadillac Lyriq. On top of this, the drawings don’t depict that it will make room for an exhaust system, which is obviously needed for a hybrid vehicle.

On the other hand, other elements that support our theory that this electric Equinox to-be. For example, last November, CEO Mary Barra, said that GM would upgrade its financial undertaking to electrics and self-driving vehicles of $7 billion with the aim of releasing 30 new electrics worldwide by 2025. Even before this statement, the automaker said the GMC Hummer EV pickup truck, and eventually went on to develop the Hummer EV product line together with the Hummer EV SUV.

GM also disclosed the refashioned 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV and its brand-new and larger relative, the Bolt EUV, coupled with the upcoming Cadillac Lyriq luxury crossover. That being the case, Barra went further in explaining that the ongoing microchip shortage won’t affect the company’s rollout for their electric vehicles, however, it has slowed down production of the upgraded 2022 Chevy Equinox SUV until the middle of August.

It’s almost a given that this type of vehicle will make use of the company’s Ultium Drive And Motor Technology, which are made for a wide range of implementations, such as front-wheel-drive, rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive, and can even be utilized by vehicles of high-performance and off-road capabilities. This highlights Barra’s view that GM has the ability to “put everyone in an EV.”

Although the patent was indeed filed by SAIC-GM (Shanghai General Motors Company) for the market for China, most of the Ultium Drive workings like the castings, gears and assemblies will be constructed with parts that are globally sourced at GM’s current global propulsion facilities on collective, adjustable assembly lines, which means that this model may eventually wander on to the States; Which is safe to say would be aligned with GM’s motivations for global coverage.

While we’re waiting for the new and improved Chevrolet Equinox, as well as other electrified vehicles in the works, Miami Lakes Automall has a plethora of vehicles like the gasoline version of their crossover SUV, as well as a variety of other different models that range in various shapes and prices.

Chevy Camaro to be Replaced by an Electric Sedan

By Justin | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet Miami, Chevy, Chevy Camaro, Chevy Camaro Miami on Thursday, August 5th, 2021 at 5:26 PM
2021 Chevy Camaro

The Chevy Camaro seems to be nearing its end. As automakers vie for the spotlight, transitions toward electric vehicles have been increasingly common. General Motors (GM) recently announced its goal to transition to electric vehicles by 2035. This spells uncertainty for the gas-fueled Camaro as GM has stated that it wants to rid itself of its gas and diesel-powered cars, trucks, and SUVs by 2035. Aside from the question of feasibility, many have to wonder what will happen to vehicles like the Chevy Camaro.

Future of the Chevy Camaro

As GM looks toward producing electric vehicles, we have to wonder what will happen to the gas and diesel vehicles left over. Currently, the sixth-generation Chevy Camaro lacks a replacement. GM could hypothetically mount the Camaro on the rear-drive-based A2XX architecture used to underpin the Cadillac CT4 and CT5, but GM has made no mention of doing so. Thus, it seems the Camaro will meet its end in 2024.

Moving toward more optimistic news, the Camaro name may live on despite the high-performance muscle car fading away. With news of GM’s move toward electrification, the Camaro name may be used for a performance-oriented all-electric sedan. Transforming the iconic two-door into a four-door may seem unlikely, but given the current nature of the world, nearly anything can be made possible.

Could an All-Electric Sedan be on the Way?

GM has stated its plans for an all-electric sedan. Whether it will replace the Chevy Camaro is up for debate, but it does leave many wondering if it can compete in the EV sector. It is expected that an all-electric sedan successor will utilize GM’s Ultium battery tech. This should provide the electric sedan with a good range and high-end charging capabilities. As for performance, we can look toward innovative vehicles like the GMC Hummer EV, which is slated to come available with 1000 horsepower and a quick 0-60mph.

Many have deduced that the next generation of high-performance vehicles by Chevy stands to deliver. This applies to the rumored all-electric sedan which has many excited. It should be noted that the Chevrolet 2023 Corvette Z06 recently received an unveiling date scheduled for later in the Fall of 2021. We will have to see what Chevrolet decides to equip the sports car with and whether it will come electric. Depending on the specs and performance, a new-generation Camaro could also be likely later in the future.

General Motors Says That Their Super Cruise System Will Upgrade With Lane Changes and More

By melanie s | Posted in Bolt EUV, Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevy, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Tuesday, August 3rd, 2021 at 2:46 PM

Powering Up The Super Cruise System

General Motors (GM) prized possession, the Super Cruise system, is one of the most innovative driver-assist technologies currently on the market, and for 2022, it’s getting even more advanced and more accessible to other vehicles, such as the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra half-ton pickup trucks.

One of the main upgrades of the Super Cruise system is hands-free automatic lane changing, which will give the car the ability to access when it’s safe to pass a car driving in front of you and change lanes when permissible without any action needed from the driver.

Other advancements include hands-free towing, which is helpful for those moving trailers, and improvements in navigation. 

This Super system was first brought to the automotive scene in 2017 in GM’s Cadillac CT6 sedan. It was during this introduction that we saw how the car was capable of guiding drivers to and fro over 200,000 miles of various highways across the States, all on its own. By utilizing both the GPS and on-board cameras, it compares the placement of the vehicle to its location in a lidar scan of the globe. Once the car understands its location, and it’s safe to take over operations, the Cruiser will literally take the wheel, as well as control the acceleration.

However, this doesn’t mean that the driver should then slack off, as they are required to pay attention in the same way as they were when they were piloting. In fact, the system involves technology that can sense whether or not the driver’s eyes are on the road. Should their eyes roam elsewhere, the system will start with various warnings before completely deactivating. If this is not the case, in most cases, there will be no need to take over.

The automaker says that this driver assistance feature will be found on a wealth of different vehicles such as the upcoming GMC Hummer electric pickup, the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado pickups, the Cadillac Escalade and XT6 SUVs, and the Cadillac CT4 and CT5 sedans. Additionally, buyers of the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt will get to enjoy an older version of Super Cruise, which of course, will not include the lane change features. However, buyers of the 2021 Escalade models will get the new features in a future over-the-air update.

GM still needs to watch its back, as its fierce competitor, Ford, has plans to launch its own driving system, the hands-free BlueCruise, which is coming later this year in 2021 F-150 pickups, as well as the electric Mustang Mach-E car.

Another rival is the Autopilot system from Tesla. They also have a new beta version of its Full Self Driving features which even back automatic lane changes on the highway. On the flip side, the company says that the driver still has to keep his or her hands on the steering wheel to confirm their attentiveness…which completely defeats the purpose of the system.

While both Super Cruise and Autopilot aren’t necessarily newcomers on the market, they were not featured in any pickup trucks, which are the most popular vehicles in the States. In conjunction with Super Cruise and BlueCruise, these technologies will be brought to a new market of truck buyers in more ways than one.

5 Things We Like about the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban

By Justin | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevy, Chevy Suburban, Miami Chevy on Friday, July 30th, 2021 at 4:53 PM

The 2021 Chevrolet Suburban is one of the larger SUVs available. With its recent makeover, the family-sized SUV has become a more accommodating vehicle that gives its competition a run for their money. With additional cargo space and passenger room, the 2021 Chevy Suburban is set to rise even higher among the ranks of family-sized SUVs. Along with more space, improvements to the overall driving experience have provided the large SUV with a more dominant position. The combination of better handling and passenger-oriented improvements has led to this laundry list of highlights. So, here are five things that make the 2021 Chevy Suburban an optimal choice. 

More Passenger Space and Cargo Room

First of all, compliments to GM for recognizing that a family-sized SUV has to not only fit an entire family but also comfortably fit an entire family. The recent improvements to the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban have added more passenger space for the second and third rows. They have also added additional cargo space. Now, the second row inside the 2021 Chevy Suburban has an extra 2.3 inches of legroom. The third row has 2 inches of additional legroom. Both rows also have been raised to a higher position so that passengers can feel a bit more comfortable. These improvements make it so that even taller adults can sit comfortably in either row. 

Regarding cargo space, the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban has made improvements that provide more room for bulkier items. The cargo floor has been lowered by more than 5 inches which makes loading large items much easier. In total, the Chevy Suburban has about 144.7 cubic feet of cargo space when the second and third-row seats are folded down. With a deeper cargo floor, Suburban owners can rest easy knowing they can comfortably load and haul just about anything. 

Smoother Ride and Handling

Moving to the second highlight, modifications to the Suburban have made rides exceptionally smooth. Optional features like the Air Ride Adaptive Suspension and Magnetic Ride Control give the 2021 Chevy Suburban better handling and control. This makes the interior cabin quieter and reduces shakiness. Now road trips can be enjoyed without fear of cargo rattling around or breaking.

Optional Diesel Engine

The third highlight of the Suburban is the optional diesel engine. With 277 horsepower and 460lb-ft of torque, this new engine offers the same torque as the higher-rated 6.2L V-8 engine. This addition adds a much better fuel economy for those longer trips. 

Smooth Transmission

For the fourth highlight, the Suburban’s transmission gets a point. A 10-speed automatic transmission provides quick reactions for the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban. It also operates seamlessly with either the 5.3L or 6.2L V-8 engines. Offering smooth performance, the newer transmission bumps the large SUV up a few points on the leaderboard.

Additional Safety

The final point revolves around safety, perhaps one of the most important aspects of any vehicle. Despite the monstrous size of the Chevy Suburban, options like the Enhanced Display and Alert Package provide drivers with smart technology. This makes maneuvering even the smallest of parking lots a breeze. Included in the Alert package are a 360-degree camera system, a rearview camera mirror, pedestrian detection, and a large heads-up display. All this provides drivers with the peace of mind that they and their passengers are safe and secure.

The Chevrolet Company Confirms That The Corvette Z06 Is Coming Our Way In 2023

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevrolet Miami, Chevy, Chevy Corvette, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, Chevy Miami, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Friday, July 30th, 2021 at 2:08 PM

The Chevrolet company has confirmed to automotive lovers everywhere that it will unveil its latest and greatest 2023 Corvette Z06 sometime this fall. Beyond these details is more or less speculation, such as the possibility of the sports car being fully electric, which shouldn’t be considered too much of a stretch given the current trend for conventional car brands.

The parent company to Chevrolet, General Motors has said that it will bring out 30 new electric vehicles by 2025. So far, it has only publicized a small number, which includes the GMC Hummer EV pickup, Hummer EV SUV, the Cadillac Lyriq SUV, and a fully-electric version of the Silverado pickup.

Last week Monday (July 19), the automaker released a short teaser video advertising the 2023 Z06. In it, you’ll hear the roar of the Corvette’s engine, as the viewer can only see the racetrack and city streets. The video eventually ends with the tagline, “The streets will never sound the same.”

Around this time, two years ago, the car company brought forth its very first mid-engine Corvette Stingray. Then on Monday, Chevrolet wrote in a statement “This fall, the story will continue with the reveal of the all-new 2023 Corvette Z06, the supercar that will put the world on notice.”

At some point in the video, you also see a tagline that says “The streets will never sound the same”, which some fans are speculating that this could be Chevrolet’s way of telling us that this model is indeed an electrified one.

In August of last year, in the middle of an 80-second campaign ad, run by President Joe Biden, he told viewers about his love for cars, specifically his Corvette, following this by saying “They tell me” that GM is working on an all-electric version of the famous sports car that will go 200 mph.

According to Detroit Free Press, a person who is well acquainted with the production of the brand confirmed intentions for a fully electrified version of the sporty vehicle, however, the specifics regarding the time and maximum speed were not known.

More than likely, the electric model will take at least two years or more to be released, as said by this acquainted person last year. They also stated that the car will be in accordance with the brand’s performance versions because of the market in 2021. This source declined to reveal themselves because they were not authorized to speak with media outlets.

Last month, Chevrolet selected Detroit’s Belle Isle Park to unveil a new Limited Edition supercar performance version of the respected Vette, along with announcing new colors, pricing, and additional features of the 2022 mid-engine Stingray, which begins production later this year.

The 2022 mid-engine Stingray, which eager customers could start ordering this month, will increase in price from the 2021 model, however, it will encompass some new games and prizes to advance performance. It will also be offered in three new colors.

2022 Chevy Trailblazer Gains New Active Safety Package

By Justin | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevy, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy Trailblazer, Miami Chevy on Friday, July 23rd, 2021 at 5:16 PM

GM has recently announced a new active safety package for the 2022 Chevy Trailblazer. With this new addition, GM is reminding its consumers that safety will always be a top priority. Currently, specific details about the new safety package are unknown but, based on previous packages, it’s safe to say that GM will be placing additional emphasis on driver and passenger safety. 

Features of the Current Active Safety Package

From recent reports and leaked details, it seems that GM will not be including lane change alerts or side blind zone alerts in its new active safety package. This may seem counterproductive, but these features are readily available in current safety packages for the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer. Packages like the Driver Confidence and Cruise Package and the Driver Confidence package include these safety features as well as additional ones. One of two, the Driver Confidence and Cruise package comes equipped in the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer base and LT trims. It includes cruise control, lane change and side blind zone alerts, rear cross-traffic alerts, and rear park assist. The second available safety package is the Driver Confidence Package. It is available for the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer LT, Activ, and RS trims. It is similar to the Driver Confidence and Cruise Package however it does not include cruise control.

Given both package deals, the 2022 Chevy Trailblazer is likely to come equipped with lane change and side blind zone alerts if the vehicle is ordered with either package. 

The all-new 2022 Chevy Trailblazer is slated to come equipped with Chevy Safety Assist. This safety package consists of six advanced safety and driver assistance features. Some of these include forward collision alerts, automatic emergency braking, front pedestrian braking, lane keep assist with lane departure warning, following distance indicators, and Intellibeam high beam assist. Different trims have upgrades available. These consist of an HD rear vision camera, lane change and side blind zone alerts, rear cross-traffic alerts, rear park assist, adaptive cruise control, and OnStar safety and security coverage.

Features of the New Active Safety Package

A new active safety package for the all-new 2022 Chevy Trailblazer will most likely focus on better driver safety features and improved vehicle function. Using the latest technology, GM could incorporate a driver sensor inside the 2022 Chevy Trailblazer that would monitor the driver’s health condition. Should the driver become incapacitated, the driver sensor would be able to gain control of the vehicle to avoid further injury. 

One additional feature likely to be included in the new safety package is an over-the-air update system. This would provide drivers with direct information and diagnostics about their vehicle. A heads-up display could also be implemented to provide drivers with information within their field of vision. 

The 2022 Chevy Trailblazer will go into production later in the year. The base LT trim will be priced at $22,795 MSRP (plus destination fee). Additional trims like the Activ and RS will be a bit pricier but will come with premium features.

Chevrolet Bolt EV Sales – Q2 2021 – North America

In North America, deliveries for the Chevrolet Bolt EV made up to 10,857 units in Q2 2021, an upsurge of around 335 percent relative to the 2,498 units sold in Q2 2020.

Chevrolet Bolt EV Sales – Q2 2021 – Canada

Canadian deliveries for the Bolt EV came out to 1,871 units in Q2 2021, advancing roughly 167 counter to 700 units sold in Q2 2020.

During the initial six months of the year, sales increased around 109 percent to 3,485 units.

Chevrolet Bolt EV Sales – Q2 2021 – South Korea

In South Korea, Chevrolet’s EVs totaled 767 in deliveries for the second quarter of 2021, which is an advancement of about 48 percent contrary to 519 units sold in Q2 2020.

However, during the first six months of 2021, sales decreased about 27 percent to 942 units.

Chevrolet Bolt EV Sales – Q2 2021 – Mexico

Chevrolet delivery sales in Mexico totaled 5 units in Q2 2021, which is a surge of about 150 percent as opposed to 2 units sold in Q2 2020.

Yet and still, the Chevrolet subcompact outsold the remaining segment, which involved the Hyundai Ioniq, the fresh-off-the-block Volkswagen ID.4,, the Honda Clarity, and its biggest rival, the Nissan Leaf.

It’s also worth knowing that these specific reports from the blog site, GM Authority, encompass both hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants, such as the case with the Honda Clarity. These big and bad automakers’ new energy vehicle segment has seen a significant expansion with over 264 percent to 54,796 units in Q2 2021, which means that the Bolt EV outperformed considerably in its segment.

What’s New With The Bolt EV For 2022?

The Chevrolet Bolt EV got a few nips and tucks during its launch in the middle of 2021, as well as this year’s models. New improvements involve new front and rear fascias, together with a series of improvements to the cabin. No changes were made to the electric drivetrain.

Additionally, the newest Bolt now has a big sister called the Bolt EUV, which has the space and body of an SUV. These fraternal twins share the automaker’s BEV2 platform, as well as the battery technology and powertrain.

2022 Chevy Tahoe Receives a Production Date

By Justin | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy Dealership, Chevy Tahoe in Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Friday, July 16th, 2021 at 3:03 PM

A revamped 2021 Chevy Tahoe was introduced recently, bringing the iconic SUV to its fifth generation. Now, GM is preparing to work on a 2022 Chevy Tahoe that will hopefully surpass its predecessor. Starting October 4th, 2021, GM will begin production on the next iteration of the large SUV. The only question is, how will GM improve upon its acclaimed 2021 Chevy Tahoe? According to the Chevrolet site, “you make it the most versatile and advanced Tahoe ever– with a bigger, more spacious cabin, better ride and handling, and a commanding presence that’s impossible to ignore.”

The 2021 Chevy Tahoe recently underwent a makeover that added more passenger and cargo room. Alongside this, the full-size SUV got a cabin and interior redesign along with an improved infotainment system. Capable of fitting 8 people, the revamped 2021 Chevy Tahoe offers a lot for those who enjoy a powerful but comfortable SUV. 

Since the 2021 Chevy Tahoe received major changes and improvements recently, new additions to the 2022 model are likely to be minor. Either new colors or additions to the instrument cluster and infotainment system can be expected. 

Speculation About the 2022 Chevy Tahoe

Speculation around the 2022 Chevy Tahoe has given way to several theories: 1) GM makes a 2022 Chevy Tahoe that has true all-terrain capabilities, 2) GM makes a 2022 Chevy Tahoe that is off-road oriented, 3) GM makes a 2022 Chevy Tahoe that is performance-tuned. Whichever direction GM decides to take, Chevy Tahoe fans will not be disappointed. 

The 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe will likely use the new T1 platform that was introduced in 2019. Used for the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, the T1 platform was a newly engineered platform intended for full-size body-on-frame models. If the 2022 Chevy Tahoe makes use of this platform,  it will enjoy better handling and stability. 

The 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe will likely feature a similar engine to the 2021 Tahoe. A 5.4L V9 L84 gasoline engine comes standard from the EcoTec3 family. It comes with a rating of 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. Chevy Tahoe trims like the High Country level will most likely feature a 6.2L V8 L87 exclusive engine. It will come with 420 horsepower and 460lb-ft of torque. The rest of the trims except for the Z71 will offer a 3.0L I6 LM2 turbo-diesel Duramax which will offer 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. All three engines will come with GM’s Hydra-Matic 10L80 10-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive will be standard on most trims except for the Z71. There may also be an option for four-wheel drive on certain trims. 

2022 Chevy Tahoe Trims

Those interested in the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe will be happy to know that several distinct trims will be available. For those seeking an off-roader style SUV, the Z71 trim will be ideal. Starting at $60,495 MSRP (plus destination fee), the Z71 will come with four-wheel drive and off-road-ready features like a heavy-duty air filter, recovery hooks, a transfer case, and 20-inch all-terrain tires. 

The High Country trim will be good for those seeking a more performance-oriented SUV. Starting at $69,700 MSRP (plus destination fee), the High Country trim will feature a more powerful 6.2L V8 engine. It will also come with 22-inch wheels, a 15-inch head-up display, rear pedestrian alerts, and an HD surround vision camera. 

The Premier trim is for those looking for a higher standard of comfort and luxury. Starting at $63,895 MSRP (plus destination fee), the Premier trim comes with features like magnetic ride control and power tilt steering. It will feature an 8-inch driver information display and some advanced safety features like lane-keep assist and lane-change alerts.

As indicated by Q1 2021 sale numbers, the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe has quickly become a fan favorite in the full-size SUV sector. With over 23,000 units sold, the Chevy Tahoe managed to secure a place at the top. Now with the announcement of a new 2022 Chevy Tahoe in the works, GM is hoping to further its lead in the SUV market.

The 2022 Chevy Silverado ZR2 May Get Off-Roading Features

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevrolet Miami, Chevy, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, chevy silverado, Chevy Silverado Miami, Chevys Miami, Miami on Tuesday, July 13th, 2021 at 3:46 PM

The Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 is a mean and aggressive pickup that earns its props for its off-road capabilities. The midsize pickup’s spool valve shocks are serious executors of their job, while the underside is geared up to be able to tackle more difficult situations and increase function. The high-quality Colorado model is just what the doctor ordered on a nice off-roading day, and the optional turbodiesel engine isn’t too shabby either. Now it appears that the automaker wants to implement this work of genius on its full-size 2022 Silverado, which would move a step above the Trail Boss trim in the lineup.

It’s questionable whether this upcoming Silverado ZR2 will increase in its strength, but decrease in its speed, or perhaps get the best of both worlds. For the moment, we’ll have to wait until the automaker releases the engine specs, especially because it’s certain that it will have particular features that will be unlike many pick-ups on the market, if not all of them.

One thing that should be expected is that the shock absorbers of the Colorado’s Multimatic-acquired Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve play a key role, as they make way for highly accurate damping control, better cooling, and increased travel. In the Colorado, there is an extra spool valve that is only involved during very large suspension movements. Altogether, the dampers perform better over a vast range of conditions rather than a conventional shock, and that’s whether it’s on or off-road.

Elements that make the Colorado ZR2 stand out are the elevated lift, augmented armor, rock sliders, and re-shaped bumpers to boost angles for approach and departure. There is also a toughened fully-boxed frame, along with its standard front and rear locking differentials. It’s certain that the Silverado ZR2 will have a better lift in contrast to the Trail Boss, brawnier skid plates, and similar number treatment as its miniature family member. The extra frame support may or may not be needed. Judging from Chevrolet’s teaser video, it seems that Silverado ZR2 will keep its rear leaf spring setup, like the Colorado, opposed to employing the arrangement of the F-150 Raptor and Ram TRX.

As for the engine components of the Silverado ZR2, more than likely the regular L87 6.2-liter V-8 that produces a healthy 420 hp and 460 lb-ft will be used, and will still be a worthy competitor against the Ram Rebel’s 5.7-liter.

One should know that the Colorado ZR2 also offers a Duramax turbo diesel option, and if the automaker wants, it can also offer the Silverado ZR2 with that powertrain’s larger sibling: the highly effective Duramax I-6 turbodiesel. Though it only produces 277 horsepower it makes up for it with 460 lb-ft of torque, and also has excellent fuel economy figures.

We should know more about what Chevrolet has in store for its truck enthusiasts by this fall but in the meantime…Miami Lakes Automall is selling vehicles in various shapes and sizes from the automaker such as the Silverado and the Colorado trucks.

The 2021 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 vs. 2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro: Battle Of The Off-Roaders

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevy, Chevy Colorado in Miami, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy on Thursday, July 8th, 2021 at 1:45 PM

The 2021 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 and the 2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro are at the top of their game when it comes to highly efficient midsize pickups. The ZR2 is a worthy contender with its thrilling powertrain options, revamped styling, capable ride and handling, as well as it’s best-in-class towing. Meanwhile, the TRD gives other pickups a run for their money with its overall durability and off-road capabilities. Let’s see how they match up with each other and see who’s really leading the pack.

Chevrolet Colorado ZR2

The 2021 Chevrolet Colorado shows no signs of slowing down when it comes to splurging its loyal following of truckers with the ZR2 off-road trim. It’s looking fierce and vivacious for the 2021 model year, and according to the automaker, it has improved in its visibility and a new grille design.

The truck shows its hot stuff with its impressive off-road gear, such as ultimate shocks, independently lockable front and rear differentials, and surplus skid plates under components deemed vulnerable.

Along with the refashioning of the pickup, the ZR2 certainly captures the menacing and blood-thirsty look and presents it well. The body looks strong and muscular, but not in the sense where it’s too fussy. This vehicle shows you that it’s ready to take you on a rock-crawling adventure, while still making it just in time to take you to the office by the end of your weekend. The company’s off-road edition involves an elevated suspension, a wider track, revamped bumpers, and an operative skid plate.

Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro

The 2021 Tacoma TRD Pro is the man…well, truck to rely on for jobs that require working in dirt, such as on a worksite on a trail, this pickup can do almost anything. For well over 30 years, the Tacoma has proven itself to be reliable and trustworthy for off-roading activities. Additionally, this truck has a towing capability for up to 6,800 pounds.

Three of the TRD models encompass various levels of off-road capability, with ingenious technology. The regular Tacoma has a 2-speed transfer case, Crawl Control, and Multi-Terrain Select.

The highest-ranking TRD pro truck tacks on Fox internal bypass shocks, a special TRD cat-back exhaust, a TRD Pro front skid plate, and a series of distinct appearance and convenience accessories.

On top of all of these positives and reputation for trustworthiness, The Tacoma’s long-lived and recently rejuvenated standing also gives it the best resale value in its segment after 5 years of ownership.

Which One Is The Best Pickup?

The 2021 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 and 2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro are neck and neck. These two amazing off-roaders are similar in being highly effective off-road trucks with large tires and plenty of ground clearance. 

However, the ZR2 outranks its competitor with its available turbo diesel option, more energetic V6 engine, and an array of cabs and beds. We’ll give it to the Tacoma for at least having the best resale value, but it just isn’t enough otherwise.

Miami Lakes Chevy

Now that you know the truth about who truly has the biggest wheels, you can check out the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 at Miami Lakes Automall. This vehicle also involves plenty of interior features like 3 months of satellite radio service, six speakers, USB connection. As well as some safety technologies like traction control, remote anti-theft alarm, and a post-collision safety system.

The MSRP for this pickup is $42,795,(plus destination fee). Those who are interested in any of our vehicles can simply view our online new car inventory and chat with a representative for further assistance.

The Chevrolet Corvette Is Ranked As 2021’s Fifth Most American-Made Car

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevrolet Miami, Chevrolet Stingray, Chevy, Chevy Corvette, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Wednesday, June 30th, 2021 at 2:49 PM

Most American Made-Car

The Chevy Corvette has been well-known as the All-American sports car, zooming through the city streets and freeways with its big and bad V8 engine, even showing off its athletic pride with its crossed racing flag badge on its snout. According to a recent study, the Vette car has been ranked as the fifth most-American made car for 2021.

According to a recent study from Cars.com, the Chevrolet Corvette sits below the fourth-ranking Jeep Cherokee and beats out the sixth-ranking Honda Ridgeline. Interestingly enough, the top three models that were ranked as the top American cars in the list encompassed the Tesla Model Y (Third), the Ford Mustang (Second), and the Tesla Model 3 (First).

The list on Cars.com is developed upon five main criterias, such as assembly location, parts content, engine origins, transmission origins, and North American manufacturing workforce. The study looked over 344 vehicles in total, and out of them, only 90 vehicles made the list. While the website does not go over its exact methodology for how it weighs and calculates different components, each of the five benchmarks “play a significant role” in electing the rank of a model in the list. One of the most essential qualifiers is the last assembly location, while some of the cars that were ranked have split manufacturing in a variety of different locations. 

One should be aware that the 2021 Chevy Corvette is manufactured at the parent company’s, General Motors facility in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Bowling Green Assembly, which is established at 600 Corvette Drive, has acted as the exclusive producer of the Chevy Corvette since its opening in 1981. Presently, the facility employs around 1,000 workers.

Additionally, the study from Cars.com retrieves its data from the American Automobile Labeling Act (AALA), which necessitates car makers to report the overage percentage of North American and Canadian content exhibited by their vehicles. Even though the AALA combines North American and Canadian parts into the same pond, Cars.com offsets by taking into account origins from the engine and transmission into the scoring of the vehicles.

As the study backs up, governing which models are the most American-mode is especially important given consideration of production interruptions caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the Suez Canal blockage in March, and the developing global microchip shortage.

New Editions

The Chevrolet company recently tacked on new features for its 2022 Corvette C8 model, such as new color options: Caffeine Metallic, Hypersonic Gray Metallic, and Amplify Orange. The automaker is also offering a limited appearance package derived from the 021 IMSA GTLM champion C8.R race car.

The company has improved upon the car’s fuel, as well as its management systems. Under the hood is a new fuel pump and fuel injections to aid in having higher fuel pressures. It’s also geared with an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. 

Additionally, there are two more colors available, specifically the Accelerate Yellow with gray accents and Hypersonic Gray with yellow accents.

2022 Chevy Traverse Saves Gas With Its New Automatic Stop-Start Switch

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevrolet Miami, Chevy, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, Chevy Traverse in Miami, Chevy Traverse Miami, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Tuesday, June 29th, 2021 at 2:54 PM

The 2022 Chevrolet Traverse is coming our way for its fifth model year for the second generation they are currently in. This time around, it’s bringing in model revitalizations that involve new changes with the interior styling, interior features, and technological gadgets. Particularly, the upcoming midsize SUV is introducing an automatic stop-start engine, as well as a disable switch.

For Chevrolet or car enthusiasts who are not aware, an automatic stop-start engine is a system that is meant to decrease fuel consumption and emissions by way of stopping the engine automatically when the vehicle is idle, such as when coming to a stoplight. When the driver removes his or her foot from the brake pedal, the engine will automatically turn back on, enabling the vehicle to continue moving forward.

There are some who are opposed to this feature altogether, as they claim that the system is actually disruptive because it may cause a (very) slight pause and some not-so-pleasant vibrations throughout the interior. However, the Chevrolet seems to have been making moves to prevent hesitant buyers, as the stop-stop feature can easily become disabled by using the freshly installed disable switch.

The 2022 Traverse  SUV isn’t the first product from the automaker to include the automatic engine start-stop system. Their 2020 mid-sized Blazer SUV crossover also encompasses this feature, as well as their 2022 Chevy Equinox compact.

Additional updates are set to come out with the next year’s Chevy Traverse and includes the elimination of their base L trim model. According to the car blog, GM Authority, the LS trim will replace the L’s entry-level position in the Traverse lineup for the following model year.

Moreover, the 2022 Chevy Traverse will bring forth three new exterior colors to its palette, specifically involving Northsky Blue Metallic, Silver Sage Metallic, and Cherry Red Tintcoat. There are also three new hues arriving to swap out with Cajun Red Tintcoat, Graphite Metallic, and Satin Steel Metallic, which will no longer be on the market for the upcoming Traverse for the 2022 model year.

The revamped 2022 midsize Chevy SUV is on schedule for production on August 2, 2021, coming hot off the press at General Motors’s production facility in Lansing Delta Township, Michigan. While the Chevy Traverse was supposed to get a makeover for the 2021 model year, obstacles brought forth for the coronavirus pandemic forced the refresh to get a delay until the following year.

The 2022 Chevrolet Traverse is a whole package deal with its standard V6 engine, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration, seating for a maximum of eight passengers, and much more. Standard features include tri-zone climate control, six USB ports, and an infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen display. Then traction-mode select, deep-tinted rear windows, and high-intensity headlights are all included by stepping up to the LS trim. There are also plenty of optional features and packages that further spices up the look and experience of the SUV.

Miami Lakes Automall has the 2021 Traverse SUV in its possession. Those who are interested in this vehicle or any of our other vehicles can simply view our online new car inventory and chat with a representative for further assistance.

2022 Chevy Corvette C8 Gets Some Sporty Improvements

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevrolet Stingray, Chevy, Chevy Corvette, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Thursday, June 17th, 2021 at 2:26 PM

 

General Motors subsidiary Chevrolet recently brought on a small selection of new color options for their 2022 C8 Corvette Stingray and is even offering a  limited appearance package based on the 2021 IMSA GTLM champion C8.R race car. The company also enhanced the sporty vehicle’s fuel and engine management interworks, however, this doesn’t mean that the C8 is going to muster up any more power than it already has. On top of this, its starting price has been heightened to $62,195, (plus destination fee), which is over $1000 more than the 2021 model year.

The upcoming Corvette’s engine is a naturally aspirated 6.2-liter LT2 V-8, which is geared with a new fuel pump and fuel injections that gives way for running higher fuel pressures. The output remains the same at 490 horsepower (really 495 if you have the performance exhaust) with 470 lb-ft of torque. It’s geared with an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. In Car and Drivers testing, the Stingray got up to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds and zoomed through the quarter-mile at 122 mph in 11.2 seconds. The more advanced Active Fuel Management system makes it possible for the cylinder deactivation to be able to perform at lower speeds, however, estimates regarding the fuel economy have not yet been released.

Limited to just 1000 cars is the new IMSA GTLM Championship Edition package. Its starting price is $6595 and is available on 3LT models fixed with the Z51 Performance package. It also has two available colors, which are Accelerate Yellow w/ gray accents or Hypersonic Gray w/ yellow accents. Finished in the Carbon Flash color are the spoilers and mirror, while the wheels are painted black w/ the brand’s Racing “Jake” skull emblem on the center caps and yellow brakes.

These special-edition models have an exclusive Strike Yellow and Sky Cool Gray interior with GT2 buckets seats paired with yellow seat belts. One can also select the special Competition seats, and there is even a C8.R Special Edition numbered plaque that you’ll find between the chairs. They are accompanied by a distinctive car cover that mirrors the style of the Corvette C8. race car.

What’s more, Corvette cars that aren’t geared with the track-equipped Z51 package are now available to order with a new low rear spoiler, along with a Z51 front splitter.

Excitingly enough, the C8.R race car was revealed for the first time at Detroit’s Belle Isle on Saturday, June 12. Eager Chevy enthusiasts of the upcoming C8 Stingray, as well as the IMSA GTLM Championship Edition package, can place their order on July 1st.

2022 Chevy Traverse Loses Is L Trim But Gains So Much More

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevrolet Miami, Chevy, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Traverse in Miami, Chevy Traverse Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Wednesday, June 16th, 2021 at 11:08 AM

Three Chevrolet vehicles are losing their entry-level L trims for the 2022 model year, and they are the Traverse, Blazer, and Malibu. It has also been revealed that the 2022 Chevrolet Traverse won’t even have the L trim as an available option, which now makes the LS trim the new base model.

The current 2021 Traverse SUV offers almost all of the same standard features for the L and LS models. The main distinction between the two is that the LS trim has a lot more available options for buyers to choose from. For example, one can bring on either 18-inch or 20-inch gloss wheels, specifically black-painted aluminum wheels, along with a black finish grille and black badging on the exterior. Inward, the Traverse LS also has available cargo nets, floor liners, and packages that you wouldn’t find on the previous base models. It is expected that the LS trim should continue to have all of these aforesaid conveniences available for the upcoming model year.

One con, however, of the 2022 Traverse L’s retirement is that more than likely, the mid-size crossover will now have a higher starting price. The 2021 Traverse L is currently priced at $30,995, (plus destination fee), while the 2021 LS is priced at $34,395, (plus destination fee). It has not yet been confirmed by the automaker whether the starting price of the LS trim will stay the same for the following model year.

The 2022 Chevy Traverse will also get a slightly refashioned design for the exterior, which will encompass modified headlamps and taillamps, a revamped front fascia, and developed grille options. Additionally, buyers will be able to select between Cherry Red Tintcoat, Northsky Blue Metallic, and Silver Sage Metallic for the three new paint colors. This makes up for the fact that Cajun Red Tintcoat, Satin Steel Metallic, and Graphite Metallic will no longer be a part of the color palette.

The Chevrolet Safety Assist package is filled with driver-assistance technologies, which will be standard on all 2022 Traverse models. Our favorite safety features include automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist w/ lane-departure warning, and blind-spot monitoring.

The standard automatic emergency system will intuitively apply the brakes if the system senses an impending collision and the driver doesn’t react. Lane-keeping assist (also standard) warns drivers if their vehicle is drifting too much in the other lane and also has the means to keep the SUV centered. Moreover, the optional blind-spot monitoring warns the driver if there are other vehicles on the side.

Lastly, drivers will be able to connect his or her phone to the infotainment system thanks to wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capabilities. A couple more exciting comforts include the brand’s subscription-based OnStar-connected services with 4G LTE and in-vehicle Wi-Fi, which both come standard.

When the time comes to purchase the 2022 Chevrolet Traverse SUV, be sure to do it at Miami Lakes Automall. We carry an extensive range of vehicles from the brand in a variety of different styles and prices. Those who are interested in any of our models can simply view our online new car inventory and chat with a representative for further assistance.

North American Auto Sales Skyrocket For SUVs and EVs

By melanie s | Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, June 9th, 2021 at 8:28 PM

How Sales In The Automotive World Are Increasing

Thursday, (July 1), North American car makers reported a dramatic increase in quarterly sales on an intense demand for SUVs and signaled the growing trend reaching into 2022, as more consumers swing to private conveyance and the lineup for new electric vehicles for launch.

Social effects from the coronavirus pandemic brought on factors like low interest rates, government stimulus checks, and more fondness for personal transportation, which in turn increased the demand for cars, this is still true in the midst of rising prices following the restricted inventories from the worldwide chip shortage.

Increased vehicle prices have raised profitability for automakers, who have also heightened their investments in the production of electric vehicles.

The General Motors company said that its Chevrolet Bolt EV displayed record deliveries for the second quarter, totaling Chevrolet sales up to 31%, while its sales for its premium Buick SUVs sky-rocketed 86%.

“We expect continued high demand in the second half of this year and into 2022,” Elaine Buckberg, GM’s chief economist, said.

Last June, the top North American automaker elevated its budget for electric vehicles to $35 billion through 2025.

“EV adoption is increasing and reaching an inflection point,” GM Chief Financial Officer Paul Jacobson told reporters on a conference call. “We want to be ready to be able to produce the capacity that we need to meet demand over time.”

It’s also worth noting that that the company is advancing its offer by financially backing a standard installation of a home charging unit:

“To continue building customer interest in electric vehicles and demand for the all-electric 2022 Bolt EUV and redesigned Bolt EV, Chevrolet will cover standard installation of Level 2 charging outlets through a collaboration with Qmerit for most qualified and eligible purchase and lease customers.”

Japan’s Toyota Motor Corporations said that its electric vehicles made up almost a quarter of their sales volume between June of 2021, which is an increase of 13% from last year.

Toyota’s overall sales for North American increased by about 73% to 688,813 vehicles in the second quarter.

“There need to be more models beyond Tesla … next year, the (Ford) F-150 Lightning should help move the needle upward,” said Morningstar analyst David Whiston.

By the second half of 2021, A great number of electrics will make their grand introduction, this also includes Chevrolet Bolt EUV, Hyundai’s Ioniq 5, and Kia’s EV6 models. These debuts will aid in lifting the overall share of EVs in North America from just 2% of all currently registered vehicles.

The Ford company, which sales figures make up over 10,000 units of their Mustang Mach-E SUV in the first five months of 2021, will release the electric version of its top-selling F-150 pickup truck by next year. The automaker’s North American auto sales increased 9.6% to 475,327 units in the second quarter, due to strong demand for their SUVs and electric vehicles.

Individually, figures from analytics firm, Wards Intelligence showed that the rate of North American light-vehicle sales decreased in June to 1.3 million units from 1.6 million in May.

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

With so many options on the market for SUVs and EVs, it can be hard to choose which one shows the most promise. However, one should know that the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV has an incredible EPA range of 259 miles. It’s also quite energetic and swift in its driving behavior but still manages to excel in handling.

When the time comes to purchase the Bolt EV hatchback, be sure to do it at Miami Lakes Automall. We carry a wide range of Chevrolet vehicles in a variety of different shapes and sizes.

The Chevrolet Company Provides Two New Police Cruisers With The 2022 Bolt and Bolt EUV

By melanie s | Posted in Bolt EUV, Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevy, Chevy Bolt, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Wednesday, June 9th, 2021 at 4:40 PM

 

2022 Bolt and Bolt EUV Police Cruiser

The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt, as well as its SUV version, the Bolt EUV crossover, is offering a brand-new, factory-fixed Special Service Vehicle (SSV) package, making them a highly important feature for law enforcement offices that are trying to make the shift towards electric vehicles. Having said that, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll see these vehicles being used in high-speed chases. The parent company, General Motors (GM), tend to serve the agencies this technology for parking control and detective cars, however, Police Pursuit Vehicles (PPVs) are cop cars that are tougher and have more quickness to them.

The automaker didn’t have to make a wealth of changes to ready the Bolt and Bolt EUV for public duty. As stated by car site, GM Authority, the SSV package involves two extra electrical circuits, one that measures 20 amps and the other with 30 amps, for things regarding strobe lights and police radios. The Bolt SSV group will also encompass a surveillance mode that turns off lights from the exterior and in the interior to maximize inconspicuousness during nighttime stakeouts.

With the shift to meter-mobile, the electrics don’t lose anything in exchange for range. The Bolt SSV can travel up to 259 miles between charges, while the EUV SSV can reach 247 miles. Obviously meant for support undertakings, the non-pursuing law enforcement vehicles maximum speed of 93 miles per hour.

The SSV-equipped EVs are only attainable for orders having to do with fleet or government, somewhat geared to try and satisfy civilian oversight communities. For instance, 16-inch wheels are a standard feature, at the same time, SSV isn’t offered with the Comfort, Driver Confidence, or Convenience packages (bundling features like leather, blind-spot monitoring, heated and ventilated seats, and other amenities). Regardless, the Bolt SSV involves a power driver’s seat, complete with a four-way adjustable lumbar, so it has a bit of happiness during a rather serious event on the job.

As great as they are, the electric hatchback and SUV aren’t the pioneering vehicles that have been offered to government agencies. Ford brought in the Police Responder sedan, which is a cop-fitted Fusion hybrid until sometime this year, and swapped it with the adventurous Police Interceptor Utility hybrid. Some municipalities also make use of the electrics such as the Nissan Leaf, as it’s helpful for duties surrounding traffic control and parking.

The Diesel Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban Show That They’re Still Hot Stuff With Recent Sales

Chevy Tahoe and Suburban Excel In Diesel Sales

As with gasoline power plants, diesel motors are now being seen as being on the verge of extinction due to the ever-growing rise of electric-powered vehicles. Major automakers have been seeking to revamp their entire lineup to eventually become fully electric in the next few years, with Hyundai for example, saying that it will stop producing diesel engines altogether. 

From the environmental standpoint, this seems like a rather positive transition in the automotive industry, but one should take into account the importance of diesels, specifically in large trucks and SUVs. These types of motors typically have a high torque output and also have sensible fuel economy numbers, which still makes them great options. In 2020, General Motors (GM) presented its newborn 3.0-liter Duramax six-cylinder turbodiesel in its Cadillac Escalade, Chevrolet Tahoe, and Chevrolet Suburban SUVs. As proven by their recent sales figures, this move was indeed the right one.

Both the diesel-operated Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban have recently experienced an increase in sales. Towards the end of April, the Duramax power plant collected six percent of all Tahoe sales, as well as eight percent for the Suburban. Seeing that the SUVs entered production, this is counted as the highest take rate for the Duramax engine. In other words, the interest in this vehicle is translating into actual sales, resulting in one of their best model years.

The 3.0-liter unit has a solid output of 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, combined with a reasonable amount of consumption. In the full-sized Tahoe, figures from the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) for the rear-wheel-drive (RWD) diesel put out 21/28/24 mpg city/highway/combined.

By contrast, the RWD 5.3-liter V8 Tahoe will only muster EPA figures 16/20/18 mpg throughout the same cycles. There are efficiency gains that are similar for the Suburban, and having said that, the Duramax engine is a tad more expensive. On the Tahoe’s LS trim, it would cost you an extra $996 for the diesel motor. That might seem fairly reasonable if you take into account what you’ll save at gas stations (considering if you don’t really need a V8). Then, for the first time in two decades, the Escalade offers a 3.0-liter turbodiesel engine, which is just as enticing to potential buyers since they don’t have to pay more for it.

General Motors Is Bouncing Back After The Automotive Chip Shortage Disaster

Positive News For General Motors

Thursday (June 3rd), the American multinational car manufacturer, General Motors (GM) announced that they are set to increase their shipments of pickup trucks as well as other vehicles to dealerships over the next several weeks, which is a good sign that things are on the up and up regarding the shortage of computer chips.

The financial results of the automaker during the first half of the year would be, as GM said in a statement “significantly better”, than previously predicted. The company has initially said that its profits would drop to roughly $500 million in the second quarter, which is more than $3 billion in the first quarter. The carmaker said that the chip shortage was the culprit for several of its plants to slow down its production for weeks on end.

“The global semiconductor shortage remains complex and very fluid,” Phil Kienle, G.M.’s vice president for North America manufacturing and labor relations, said in the statement. “Customer demand continues to be very strong, and G.M.’s engineering, supply chain and manufacturing teams have done a remarkable job maximizing production of high-demand and capacity-constrained vehicles.”

GM also stated that it intended to increase production of its pickups, specifically the heavy-duty, at their plant in Flint, Michigan, by the following month. The automaker claims that their output would increase by around 1,000 trucks per month. Other factories will have to sacrifice their usual summer vacation closures in order to compensate for some of the lost production time earlier this year.

Additionally, the automaker is also intending to ship a collection of around 30,000 midsize pickups to dealers from their plant in Wentzville, Missouri. These are trucks that have been constructed without particular electric mechanisms and have been stowed away at the plant until missing parts finally make their arrival.

On Thursday afternoon, GM’s stock price moved up about 6 percent after it announced its new profit forecast.

GM wasn’t the only automaker that has been affected by the chip shortage, Ford Motor also made a forecast regarding their profits, saying that it expects to make half as many cars in the second quarter than they originally intended. Tesla had to increase the pricing on some of its cars, and even ceased the use of radar sensors that were part of its Autopilot driver-assistance system.

“Our biggest challenge is supply chain, especially microcontroller chips,” Tesla’s chief executive, Elon Musk, said Wednesday on Twitter. “Never seen anything like it.”

Now that you know where things stand with our favorite powerhouse carmaker, you feel confident in making a purchase at Miami Lakes Automall. It’s here that we carry an extensive range of models from GM’s subsidiary company, Chevrolet. There you will also find a variety of different body styles and prices.

2022 Chevy Bolt EUV And Bolt EV Are Arriving Ahead Of Schedule To Dealerships

By melanie s | Posted in Bolt EUV, Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevy, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Friday, May 21st, 2021 at 4:49 PM

It’s official! The new 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV crossover, along with the revamped 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV hatchback have entered production at General Motors Lake Orion Assembly plant, and are already ahead of schedule in making their way towards dealership lots.

This week, the automaker posted a photo of the upcoming Bolt in the midst of its last inspection on the assembly line, which prompted the caption, “The future is all-electric. The new 2022 Bolt EUV and redesigned Bolt EV have left the factory and are shipping to a Chevrolet dealership near you.”

This revelation comes as quite a surprise, since many automakers experienced delays on rollouts and arrivals due to the microchip shortage, and issues with supply chains. In spite of this, the arrival of the two EV models are coming a month earlier than GM initially said, towards the end of May.

The latest and greatest Bolt EUV and EV made their initial introduction back in February, with the automaker saying at the time that these electrics would start production this summer. The starting price for the hatchback is at $31,995, (plus destination fee). In concert, the EUV has a starting price at $33,995, (plus destination fee). By comparison, the 2021 model year for the Bolt EV, was priced from $37,890, (plus destination fee).

Both of these models get their power from a 288-cell lithium-ion battery pack with a rating of 65 kWh, which delivers power to a front-mounted electric motor that has a maximum power output of 200 horsepower with 266 lb-ft of torque. Additionally, the Bolt EUV has an EPA rating of 259 miles from a full charge, while the family-friendly EUV has an estimated range of 247 miles.

The upcoming Bolt EV and EUV are the GM’s most inexpensive electric vehicles at this time and have been viewed as an integral part of its overall objective for each driver to eventually ride in an electric vehicle.

“We want to put everyone in an EV and the new Bolt EUV and redesigned Bolt EV are crucial to doing so,” GM President Mark Reuss commented during the time of the vehicles’ introduction. “Together, they enable mainstream customers to be part of our vision of zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion.”

Although it was recently reported that the Bolt EUV, in particular, wouldn’t break the 250-mile mark, as expected, it still offers more than enough driving range to work with. On top of this, it makes up for it with extra space in the rear seating area, as well as additional comfort features. It even has an available sunroof and GM’s Super Cruise hands-free driver-assist system. 

Moreover, both the latest Bolt EV and EUV offer an updated seat design, as well as a slew of interface changes like a one-pedal driving mode. Buyers should also expect Android and Apple CarPlay compatibility, and a new Level 2 mobile charging cord.

The arrival of the 2022 Bolt EV and Bolt EUV is fast approaching, and when that time finally comes, be sure to make your purchase at Miami Lakes Automall. We sell a wide range of Chevrolet vehicles, including that of the 2021 Bolt EV.

What We Know So Far About The 2022 Chevy Blazer

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevrolet Miami, Chevy, Chevy Blazer, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, Chevy Miami, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Monday, May 17th, 2021 at 4:52 PM

 

In 2018, Chevrolet released its Blazer SUV, once again bringing to life its famous nameplate. It was considered quite unexpected, seeing as the name “Blazer” was previously associated with more adventurous vehicles, like the Trailblazer. Nevertheless, the automaker took the smart move by fitting in with the times, as the rise of family-friendly crossovers is undeniable. 

For its upcoming model, the company is offering some minor changes here and there. Here’s everything that you need to know about the 2022 Chevrolet Blazer.

It’s Keeping Its Three Engine Options

Chevrolet’s main intent of launching its crossover line-up was to introduce a sense of comfort and easiness to the drivers and their passengers as much as possible, therefore, one shouldn’t expect a complete revamp of powertrain options each model and every model year. 

In this case, there is hardly a change at all. The standard 2.5-liter 4-cylinder has 193 horsepower and lb-ft of torque, and will only be available with front-wheel-drive (FWD). The next engine is the optional 2.0-liter turbocharger, it produces an excellent 237 horsepower with 258 lb-ft of torque. It’s also quite fuel-efficient and will have an available all-wheel-drive (AWD) system. 

The third and final option that has the most pep in its step is the 3.6-liter V6 engine, pushing out 308 horsepower with 270 lb-ft of torque. All three motors are joined with a 9-speed automatic transmission.

Maintains Its Lovable Crossover Body

Contrary to its venturesome roots, the crossover is made for the city streets. The early design of this Chevrolet vehicle is derived from the automaker’s iconic muscle car, the Camaro. The Blazer has a style that is incredibly modern and sleek, which is helped by features like the sharp lines, slender headlights, sloped roofline, and larger two-layered grille.

The 2022 model will keep the same unibody frame, as well as the wheelbase of 113 inches and the length of 192 inches. Then, the 64.3 cubic feet of cargo space should satisfy basic needs. There’s also a generous amount of space in both the front and back row. Interior elements like the trim pieces and circular air vents will follow-on the newest model.

Already Born With Plenty Of Features

Chevrolet has already packed on the safety and comfort features in its models. The 2022 Blazer will continue to sport standard nifties like an 8-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto compatibility, AM/FM radio dual-zone climate control a six-speaker stereo, Bluetooth audio streaming, in-car wireless internet hardware, four USB ports, plus cruise control, keyless entry, 18” wheels, and all-season tires.

Optional features will also carry over, such as wireless smartphone charging rear park assist, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic emergency braking, front pedestrian braking, lane keep assist, lane change alert with blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, a rear camera mirror, a surround-view parking camera system, forward collision alert, high-speed automatic emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control.

Moreover, since it was recently announced that the upcoming Blazer will lose its entry-level L and 1LT, this may allow certain features that were previously exclusive to trims in a higher tier to become standard.

Today’s Automotive Trend May Change The Cost

For the past few years, automakers have been slowly making the transition to electric vehicles. With upcoming EVs like the Ford Mustang Mach-E, Tesla Model X and Y, and Hyundai Kona Electric, it’s quite plausible that Chevy may want to follow suit with its 2022 Blazer. 

Though there is no official announcement in this regard nor the starting price, it’s estimated that the cost will range from $29,000, (plus destination fee) to $45,000, (plus destination fee). The mid-size vehicle is also set to go on sale close to November 2021.

The 2022 Chevrolet Blazer will be here before we know it and when that time comes, be sure to make this purchase at Miami Lakes Automall. We carry an extensive range of vehicles from the automaker, including those of the 2021 model year.

GM’s CEO Raves About The Upcoming Chevrolet Silverado EV

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevrolet Miami, Chevy, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, chevy silverado, Chevy Silverado Miami, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Monday, May 10th, 2021 at 12:28 PM

 

GM’s CEO Comments On The Upcoming EV Silverado

General Motors recently conducted a Q1 financial report with investors, during which a Deutsche Bank analyst had specific questions regarding the brand’s Silverado EV. This prompted CEO Mary Barra to briefly give some insights about its highly anticipated truck.

“And again, we have incredible know-how in this company and how to do full-sized trucks and we’re taking that into an EV-propelled vehicle, and that I think is going to give us a winning formula. I’m excited to share that vehicle with everyone because it’s just stunning,” Barra commented.

Barra also added that GM expects to have a strong demand for its upcoming electric Silverado. She thinks that the Utilium platform could aid the company in obtaining leadership in the market.

Last month, Chevrolet confirmed rumors regarding the Silverado EV, as they plan on constructing the model apace with the GMC Hummer EV at the company’s Detroit-Hamtramck Factory Zero facility. Both trucks will reside on the Ultium platform, and the aim is for the green Silverado to have a range of about 400 miles or 644 kilometers.

“The vehicles coming from Factory Zero will change the world, and how the world views electric vehicles,” said GM President Mark Reuss when announcing the Silverado EV. “The GMC Hummer EV SUV joins its stablemate in the realm of true supertrucks, and Chevrolet will take everything Chevy’s loyal truck buyers love about Silverado — and more — and put it into an electric pickup that will delight retail and commercial customers alike.”

At the current moment, there is no word as to the arrival date of the electrified Silverado. However, seeing how it proceeds on a different platform than the gasoline model, it leaves room for significant styling changes between the two trucks.

Furthermore, GM is investing $2.2 billion into the Detroit-Hamtramck facility to develop the site into a major center for the company’s electric vehicle production.

More Fun Facts

  • Chevrolet’s first full-size electric truck won’t just be for public consumption, as both retail and fleet versions will be made available.
  • GM claims that you won’t have to worry about spending so much time charging and for only a few miles, as it’s expected for the upcoming Silverado to deliver 400 miles on a full charge.
  • As previously stated, America’s powerhouse automaker is embracing the “Made In The U.S.A” slogan by building the EV truck at GM’s Factory ZERO assembly plant, previously known as the Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Center. This is the company’s first EV-only assembly plant, and not only will it produce the Silverado and the Hummer, but also the Cruise Origin, which is an upcoming self-driving vehicle.

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

When the time finally comes to purchase the first-ever Chevrolet Silverado EV, be sure to do it at Miami Lakes Automall. We have an extensive range of vehicles from the automaker, including that of the current Silverado. Simply take a look at our website and search through our online new car inventory.

All The Latest On The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV

By melanie s | Posted in Bolt EUV, Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevrolet Miami, Chevy, Chevy Bolt, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Friday, May 7th, 2021 at 2:54 PM

 

It’s no secret that the move toward electric cars is fast approaching…no actually it’s already here. Many big-time manufacturers like Tesla, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan have made great strides in the EV world. 

Chevrolet is just one of many automakers to compete in this new game, but one shouldn’t assume that it’s new to this electrified car making. The Chevrolet Bolt EV first made its debut in 2016 and since then it’s taken the EV market by storm, winning various awards and getting significant recognition from car magazines and blogs. It’s one of the most successful electric models that an American manufacturer has ever produced, and with its upcoming 2022 model is fast-approaching, this carmaker shows no signs of slowing down. Here’s All The Latest On The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV.

Exterior

Though the design of the Bolt EV looks cute and cuddly, the 2022 model will have just a bit more edge and intensity in its design. Some changes that will be made to the style include the adding of a pair of LED headlights to the front, to help lead the car into the twenty-first century. This EV hatchback will use the same architecture as its newborn sibling, the Bolt EUV. 

Interior

The interior has also been completely revamped. Opposed to its predecessor, the revisions are more conspicuous, and the automaker has improved the quality of the materials. Drivers will appreciate the 10.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system and an 8-inch digital instrument cluster. There is also a new electronic shifter that doesn’t take up as much space as in the previous one. This new gadget teams up with pull toggles and space-age push-button controls.

Both drivers and passengers will have more than enough room to work with and will be quite comfortable on long road trips. Legroom in the backseat measures at 36.0 inches, and the company says that they’re reconstructed the seats to be more supportive and comfortable. Moreover, there is 16.6 cubic feet of cargo space when the seats are up, but when they are folded, this number increases to 57 cubic feet.

Technology

For the newest Bolt, Chevrolet is considering replacing its old LT and Premier models with two trims dubbed 1LT and 2LT. This doesn’t mean that there will be a loss of any features, nor the addition of them, as the company is only seeking to rename the trims. As one should expect, the infotainment system will have standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. You’ll also find wireless charging as a great comfort feature.

Safety-oriented technologies encompass those like adaptive cruise control, automatic front emergency braking, automatic high beams, lane-keeping assist, and 360-degree camera system as available features. The taller Bolt EUV involves Super Cruise, which applies semi-autonomous technology that allows its driver to take his or her hand from the steering wheel during long periods of highway driving.

Performance

Regarding the car’s performance, you won’t see a difference in this 2022 compact. As before, the car will be powered by a single motor that is joined with a 66-kWh battery pack, which enables the vehicle to push out 200 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. This is just the right amount of power that one would need in a car of this size, especially since it’s more equipped for urban cities. Additionally, the one-pedal driving mode will prove to be helpful when driving in heavy traffic.

Range And Charging

When it’s time to go car shopping, there are many potential buyers that are concerned with power and speed capabilities, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but when it comes to an electric vehicle, the main priority should be mile range. As previously mentioned, we’ll be getting the same motor, therefore, the mile range will also stay the same.

The automaker says that the driving range of the 2022 Bolt is 259 miles, but one should know that real-world tests haven’t been performed yet, so this number is subject to change. The 5-door EV includes a 240-volt charging unit for you to use at home, while Level 2 charging and DC charging that gives the car 100 miles of power in 30 minutes.

Price

Each and every year, electric cars are becoming more affordable, and the 2022 Bolt EV is no different. The starting price for this hatchback is $31,995, (plus destination fee), which is $5,000’s less than last year’s model. Essentially, you’re getting an upgrade without having to pay the upgraded price. 

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

The production of the 2022 Bolt EV will begin by late spring and should be available to purchase this summer. When the time comes to buy your spanking new eco-friendly Chevrolet vehicle, be sure to do it at Miami Lakes Automall, we sell a wide range of models from the automaker and at a variety of different prices.

Chevrolet Proves That Its Design For Its Silverado 1500 Has True Buying Power

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevy, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, chevy silverado, Chevy Silverado Miami, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Wednesday, May 5th, 2021 at 9:43 AM

The fourth-generation Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has reached its third year of stealing the hearts of pickup lovers everywhere. When this light-duty truck made its debut in 2019, it was praised by many for its design, which significantly contrasts with that of its third-generation model. Even though there have been some critics pointing out what they see as flaws in the styling, with some even using the term “sideburns” to describe the reason for their disdain. However, these sideburns have actually helped to increase sales rather than thwart them.

In a recent interview with car site, GM Authority, Bob Krapes, Director of Chevrolet Truck Marketing said “Research has shown that the number one reason to buy [the Silverado 1500] is design.” 

In actuality, the design of the Silverado is the main reason why the pickup is presently the best-selling vehicle in its segment amid buyers with ages ranging from 18 to 34 in North America, as reported in January by GM Authority. While the styling may not be everyone’s preferred taste, it’s doing what it needs to in order to entice customers.

Krapes continued to say that the design has also allowed the Silverado to become the best-selling pickup truck amid Hispanic buyers in the States.

Also encompassing variants like Heavy Duty and Medium Duty pickups, the Silverado is the automaker’s top-selling model by a sizable margin. To put into perspective, 594,094 units of the Chevy truck were purchased in the States during the 2020 calendar year. That signifies 34 percent of the Chevrolet sales and 23 percent of total sales of GM. In truth, the Silverado and its corporate counterpart, the GMC Sierra, together outsold the highly-favored Ford F-Series by almost 60,000 units during that year. While one could argue that this achievement could be due to the F-Series making its way into its 14th generation during the very end of 2020, it still doesn’t take away from its win.

Unfortunately, Q1 of 2021 saw a dip in Silverado sales, surely due to the ongoing effects of the coronavirus pandemic and the worldwide semiconductor shortage. Yet and still, at 126,591 units for the first three months of the year, the pickup still made up for 30 percent of Chevrolet sales and 20 percent of GM sales in North America during that period. These numbers also indicate that if Silverado styling was largely unfavorable, it would have not seen much success.

At this current moment, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is available with the option of four body configurations, thusly:

  • Regular Cab, Long Bed
  • Double Cab, Standard Bed
  • Crew Cab, Short Bed
  • Crew Cab, Standard Bed

A Regular Cab, Short Regular Bed Silverado is constructed in the States but is only sold in the Middle East. However, GM Authority recently reported that there is still a possibility for these configurations making their way to the U.S. and Canada.

The automaker has also announced in early April that an electric Chevrolet Silverado will be constructed at the GM Factory Zero plant (previously known as GM Detroit-Hamtramck plant) along with the nearing GMC Hummer EV pickup and SUV.

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

Miami Lakes Automall has a wide range of Chevrolet vehicles, including that of the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. We also sell bigger and badder trucks from this brand, such as the Silverado 2500HD and the Silverado 4500HD.

Chevrolet Reveals Three Cool Colors For The 2022 Corvette C8

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevrolet Miami, Chevrolet Stingray, Chevy, Chevy Corvette, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, Chevy Miami, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Friday, April 30th, 2021 at 4:08 PM

 

New Corvette Colors For 2022

Although the All-American Chevrolet brand has a great deal of vehicles under its belt, without question, their Corvette sports car is their main squeeze. Now more than ever, with its recent C8 Corvette entering its third model year, the car has gained widespread popularity. While changes in design have been relatively haven’t been too dramatic, they still add just enough excitement.

 

 

Recently, the automaker announced that there are three new color options available. The three new color options include Amplify Orange, Caffeine, and Hypersonic Gray. At least one of these colors is viewed as a premium color, with Amplify Orange being a bit more expensive.

It seems as though the colors Caffeine and Hypersonic Gray are standard. The Caffeine color appears to look brownish, and the shared image from the brand appears to have hints of metallic gold elements to it once it hits the sunshine. The color is very subtle for the Corvette. Hypersonic Gray also serves as a metallic color option, and slightly comparable to the silver that was previously available to the vehicle.

 

All of next year’s Corvette models will encompass standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as new display options for the digital gauge cluster, such as a tachometer in Track mode. These standard gadgets were presented in the 2021 model year. Buyers of the 2022 C8 models can also select the magnetorheological dampers as a standalone option that doesn’t necessitate buyers to choose the Z51 performance package.

For the time being, no new changes will be applied to the motor, as the Corvette will continue to make use of a 490 horsepower 6.2-liter V-8 engine. The company confirmed that orders for the 2022 model will start by early July.

The drivetrain shifts over from previous years with the 6.2-liter V-8 engine producing 490 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. Car and Driver states that the C8 can reach 60 mph in 2.8 seconds and run the quarter-mile in 11.2 seconds at 122 mph. The 2-door vehicle uses an 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox. The entry-level price for the 2021 Corvette was $60,995, (plus destination fee), with the 2022 C8 likely following suit.

Corvette’s Color Of The Year

The 2021 Corvette already has an exciting group of 12 exterior colors. At the present moment, the fan favorite of the bunch is Torch Red.

For loyal Corvette followers, the popularity in the Torch shouldn’t come as a shock, as GM Authority previously reported that this option was the most desired exterior color for the 2020 Corvette, specifically making up 25 percent of all of last year’s models that were produced. Arctic White came in as the second most popular 2020 Corvette color, making up 15 percent of the sales, while Black came in third place at 12 percent. Finally, with 7 percent each, Sebring Orange and Elkhart Lake Blue came in fourth and fifth, respectively.

All Corvette color options currently include:

  • Sebring Orange Tintcoat
  • Arctic White
  • Ceramic Matrix Gray Metallic
  • Black
  • Accelerate Yellow Metallic
  • Shadow Gray Metallic
  • Rapid Blue
  • Red Mist Metallic Tintcoat
  • Elkhart Lake Blue Metallic
  • Silver Flare Metallic
  • Zeus Bronze Metallic

Inhouse, the 2021 Corvette currently offers eight interior colors, such as:

  • Jet Black
  • Sky Cool Gray
  • Adrenaline Red
  • Natural
  • Natural Dipped
  • Tension with Twilight Blue Dipped
  • Morello Red Dipped
  • Sky Cool Gray with Strike Yellow

Chevrolet Blazer vs. Trailblazer: Two Peas In A Different Pod

To begin with, the Chevrolet Blazer and Chevrolet Trailblazer were never seen as SUVs that necessarily mirror each other. On the other hand, they do have particular characteristics about them that are in fact comparable, such as with their athletic styling and driving mannerisms. Let’s dig a little deeper as to what makes these bow-tie trucks tick.

Benefits of The 2021 Chevrolet Blazer Advantage

Interior Space

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the larger Blazer has more cargo space. Behind the rear seats, this mid-size SUV has 30.5 cubic feet of capacity, and when the seats are folded down expands to 64.2 cubic feet. For the compact Trailblazer, its numbers measure up to 25.3 cubic feet, and then 54.4 with the seats down. Although the Trailblazer is more suitable for carrying longer items, the Blazer is more capable for general use.

Power and Acceleration

Three engines are offered for the Blazer, such as the standard 193-horsepowered 2.5-liter I-4, a 227-horsepowered 2.0-liter turbo-four, and a 308-horsepowered 3.6-liter V-6. All of these motors are paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission with standard FWD, at the same time, AWD is available for the turbo-four as well as the V-6 engines. 

According to testers at car site, MotorTrend, they estimated a 6.1-second 0-60-mph time from a V-6 AWD Blazer RS. Then, for the AWD turbocharged models, they measured a 7.5-second time, while getting a 9-second run from 2.5-liter models.

Fun Factor

Although the Trailblazer has a few flamboyant options on its color palette, the Blazer still stands out. The mid-sizer has a more intense design and even has some Camaro-inspired sportiness.  While it doesn’t replace the real thing, it still has a bit of pep in its step. Its steering is also more stable and precise, and the chassis aids in providing a ride that is comfortable yet energetic.

Benefits Of The 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer

Starting Price

Regardless of all of the gifts and toys that a car has, the price is almost always the main deciding factor when it comes to its purchase. One advantage that the smaller Trailblazer has is that it’s big in affordability. The starting price for Blazer is $30,000, (plus destination fee) and it only goes up from there, however, with a Trailblazer, you can get high-tier trim like AWD Trailblazer RS and Activ models for just under the Blazer’s starting price. Needless to say, if you’re looking for the most bang for your buck, you’ll find a friend with this compact.

Fuel Economy

While the Blazer certainly takes the cake in terms of a powerful ride, one of the perks of the Trailblazer’s powertrains is that they are better equipped for fuel-efficiency. Ironically, this crossover has a larger engine, however, its motors aren’t as thirsty, as its FWD 1.3-liter turbocharger has an EPA rating of 29/33 mpg city/highway, while the Blazer’s smaller 2.0-liter turbo drops off to 22/29 mpg.

Maneuverable Size

The Trailblazer proves that less is more when trying to cut corners and sneak into tight parking spaces, in these instances, the SUV’s tiny frame is a big convenience. Measuring at 173.5 inches long and a width of 71. inches, it’s perfect for maneuvering in congested city streets. Meanwhile, the bulky Blazer expands at 191.4 inches long and 76.7 inches wide, which as previously mentioned, is only a win when considering interior space.

Who Runs Donuts Around Who?

Ultimately, choosing between the Blazer and Trailblazer all depends on the person’s preference. Buyers of the Blazer get the value of more interior space, a mightier engine, and overall better maneuverability on the road. At the same time, the Trailblazer is significantly less expensive on all trims, is more fuel-efficient, and makes parking a breeze.

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

At Miami Lakes Automall, you don’t have to choose between the two, because we sell both the 2021 Chevrolet Blazer and Trailblazer SUVs with a variety of different trims and prices.

The Chevy Corvette Commands Authority With High Market Share During Q1 2021

By melanie s | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, April 15th, 2021 at 9:12 AM

 

The 2021 Chevrolet Corvette has experienced incredible highs in the United States and in Mexico during the first sales quarter of 2021. 

Chevrolet Corvette Sales – Q1 2021 – United States

In North America, deliveries for the Chevrolet Corvette summed up to 6,611 units in Q1 2021, which is about a 73 percent increase as opposed to the 3,820 units sold in Q1 2020.

Chevrolet Corvette Sales – Q1 2021 – Mexico

In Mexico, the deliveries for the Corvette model consisted of 36 units in Q 2021, which means there was a growth of about 140 percent as opposed to 15 units sold in Q1 2020.

Chevrolet Corvette Sales – Q1 2021 – Canada

In Canada, however, the Vette did experience a slight decrease in sales, as its deliveries amounted to 281 units in Q1 2021, which brought its numbers down to about 2 percent as opposed to 288 units sold in Q1 2020.

Competition Sales Comparison (USA)

The significant increase in the Chevrolet Corvette’s North American sales during the Q1 2021 prompted the iconic sports car to maintain its position as the best-selling model in its segment. Essentially, the famous Stingray outpaced all of its other competitors in the sales race, including that of the Porsche 911, Porsche 718, Mercedes-AMG GT, Mercedes-Benz SL, Mercedes-Benz SLC, Audi R8, Nissan GT-R, Ford GT, Acura NSX, and BMW i8.

Sales Numbers – Premium Sports Cars – Q1 2021 – USA

The Corvette’s impressive numbers signify a considerable improvement over figures that were similarly admirable in Q3 2020 in addition to Q4 2020. Throughout these quarters, the 8th-gen model made up over 50 percent of shares for its segment. It’s worth noting, however, that most candidates are much pricier than the Corvette and therefore, it’s less likely this will contribute to the lower volume of buyers.

The Chevy Corvette was able to increase its segment shares up to 51 percent opposed to 43 percent in 2020. Coming in second, is the highly popular and big-time rival, Porsche 911; This car comprised about a third of the Corvettes sales with 22 percent segment share, which is a decrease of 29 percent in the quarter a year ago. Then, Porsche’s 718 line, encompassing the 718 Cayman and 718 Boxster, came up third with a 12 percent segment share, with an increase of 4 percent from a year ago. The remaining contenders like the Audi R8, Nissan GT-R, Ford GT, Acura NSX, and BMW i8, all saw an increase of 1 percent or less in their segment share.

The segment for luxury sport vehicles increased an average of about 44 percent to 12,876 units in Q1 2021, which means that Corvette sales outsold the segment nearly two-fold.

General Motors Say That An Electric Silverado Is Coming Our Way

By melanie s | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, April 12th, 2021 at 2:17 PM

 

Electric Chevrolet Silverado

General Motors (GM) recently announced that the Chevrolet division will bring forth its first-ever electric Silverado. This pickup truck will be constructed at the automaker’s Factory Zero assembly plant in Detroit and Hamtramck, Michigan. Mark Reuss, GM’s president, even confirmed that the GMC Hummer electric SUV (which was revealed this month) will also be built at the same location as the Silverado. Previously, the car company said that the Hummer pickup, as well as the Cruise Origin, would also be made at the Factory Zero store. It is expected that the Hummer pickup will be introduced to the market sometime this year.

GM’s goal is to provide dealerships with over a million electric vehicles worldwide by 2025 and then win over the EV “market leadership in North America,” including that “with the company’s Ultium Platform, virtual development tools and technology, GM has reduced vehicle development times by nearly 50 percent to just 26 months.”

The automaker says that the electrified Silverado has been developed, though in and out, to be an electric vehicle. The company is also estimating that this truck will provide over 400 miles worth of range and all from a full charge, it will also be available for both retail and fleet buyers.

Reuss stated  Chevrolet takes “everything Chevy’s loyal truck buyers love about Silverado—and more—and puts it into an electric pickup that will delight retail and commercial customers alike.”

In January of last year, the automaker said that it was investing $2.2 billion in its Detroit-Hamtramck plant for the purpose of making several electric trucks and SUVs. GM retitled its plant to Factory Zero some months ago in order to convey its vision of a future without crashes, emissions, and congestion.

In fact, GM says Factory Zero is the “launchpad for GM’s multi-brand EV strategy. The facility has advanced technology and tooling and was designed with a focus on sustainable manufacturing.”

Additionally, Factory Zero will be getting significant renovations and upgrades, such as with “new machines, conveyors, controls, and tooling,” for the paint and body shops/general assembly areas.

Since last year, GM has made several announcements regarding its plans for an eco-friendly future, which also involves a modular propulsion system and an adaptive EV platform energized by proprietary Ultium batteries. The automaker has also said that it committed over $27 billion to electrics and autonomous vehicle development, encompassing $7 billion in 2021. The company intends to release 30 EVs worldwide towards the end of 2025, with over two-thirds available in the States. GM says that between Cadillac, GMC, Chevrolet, and Buick, GM will have EVs that range at all price points. Recently, the company announced its 2022 Bolt EUV and Bolt EV, which are expected to arrive in dealerships this summer.

Last January, GM revealed BrightDrop, their new business that seeks to charge up and advance the delivery of goods and services through its systematic offering of electrical first-to-last-mile products, software, and services. The purpose is to help “empower delivery and logistics companies to move goods more efficiently.”

What’s more, this technology will reach over to fuel cells, as it will equip its Hydrotec fuel-cell power cubes to Navistar to utilize in its production model fuel-cell EV, a.k.a the International RHTM Series.

The automaker says that it will spend $2 billion on its Spring Hill, Tennessee, assembly plant to undertake the shift to GM’s third EV plant, alongside Factory Zero and Orion Assembly in Orion Township, Mich.

GM announced the construction of Ultium Cells LLC back in 2019. Cells LLC is a joint venture with LG Energy Solution to mass-produce battery cells in Lordstown, Ohio. According to the company, the facility’s $2.3 billion construction is currently in motion.

The refreshed Chevy Equinox will soon unveil its mid-cycle revamp of the crossover, which was previously scheduled for the 2021 model year. Unfortunately, obstacles were met not-so-thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, the altered Chevy vehicle then received push back to the 2022 model year.

Along with the new cosmetic options, the 2022 crossover will also bring forth a handful of exterior styling alterations, involving a renovated front grille and lower fascia.

Chevrolet Is “Upgrading” To A 3-Cylinder Engine In Its New Camaro

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevrolet Miami, Chevy, Chevy Camaro, Chevy Camaro Miami, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, Chevy Miami, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Tuesday, April 6th, 2021 at 9:42 AM

 

The New Camaro Will Be Powered By A 3-Cylinder Motor

The iconic Chevrolet Camaro is an American staple and one of the most favored muscle cars in the States. Even though a recent recall related to the possibility of shafts missing a retaining ring and the company stalling production in Michigan at its Lansing Grand River Assembly plant ascribed to a shortage of semiconductor chips, this dynamic pony continues to dominate in sales. In order to stay newsworthy and fresh in the automotive industry that’s shifting towards hybrid and electric vehicles more and more each day Chevrolet has made a rather… unexpected announcement. By 2022, some Camaro’s will be operated by a high-performing, turbocharged…three-cylinder engine…Yes, you read that right. Just three cylinders.

Surely, this revelation might have left some in the Camaro fanbase flabbergasted, but before you get your knickers in a bunch, know that this type of change has already become a trend with other automakers, with Ford and Toyota offering similar performances. For instance, the European Ford Fiesta ST is motorized by a turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder and has an output of 200 horsepower with 214 lb-ft of torque. Then, the Toyota GR Yaris is simply stunning with its ability to produce 257 horsies with 266 lb-ft of torque thanks to its turbocharged 1.6-liter three-cylinder engine. The latest base-level Camaro model has a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 275 horsies and 295 lb-ft of torque. Chevrolet engineers are aiming to reach those power figures, and have already enhanced the capabilities of the new three-cylinder engine.

“We have been considering going to three-cylinders for a while now,” said Ted Kowalczyk, headman of small capacity motors at the brand. “The way the automotive industry is going, downsizing our engines, and focusing on efficiency is becoming a priority. We do believe that the new three-cylinder engines will be able to deliver the performance our customers have become accustomed to.” As claimed by sources, the new and improved motor should be able to produce over 300 horsepower. However, Chevrolet has kept quiet regarding the future plans of the V8 in the Camaro line, even so, there’s talk of a five-cylinder in the works.

More Of What To Expect

At first glance, it appears as those the automaker is keeping it simple with its upcoming design. Supposedly, rather than a complete remodel of the seventh-generation Camaro, it will look just like a 2021 but with a slight facelift. This isn’t a bad approach, as many automakers like to stick with what has already been working for them, with Jeep being the most notorious of them all. It has also been revealed that the muscle car will come in two different body styles, specifically, a two-door coupe and a two-door convertible (with a soft-top).

Additionally, the same trims (or at least similar ones) that were featured in the Camaro’s previous models, will likely be available in the newest generation. More specifically, the automaker will present the 1LS, 1LT, 2LT, 3LT, LT1, 1SS, 2SS, and ZL1, respectively. As before, the SS model would serve as the SuperSport package while the ZL1 will be the highest-ranking trim. The convertible version of the Camaro will also be available in these trims, with the expectation of the 1LS. Though these prices have not been confirmed, there is a high probability that the price will reach over $20,000, (plus destination fee) for the entry-level 1LS and over $60,000, (plus destination fee) for the high-tier ZL1 model. 

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

When the time comes to purchase your spanking new 3-cylinder Chevrolet Camaro, be sure to do it at Miami Lakes Automall. We carry a wide range of Chevrolet cars in different trims and prices. It’s also not too late to purchase a current Camaro model still featuring the 4-cylinder motor.

General Motors Makes Great Strides In Their Pledge To Responsible Water Management

GM Keeps Their Promise

General Motors (GM) recently revealed plans regarding environmental soundness. The multinational automaker wants to diminish the intensity of its water operations, with the goal to lessen the amount by 2035. The result of this scheme could save enough water that’s the equivalent of 4,254 swimming pools…and we mean Olympic-sized. 

On top of this, the company showcased their commitment to contributing to a greener future by signing the CEO Water Mandate. In this linking up with other world business leaders, they acknowledged problems regarding water and also strengthened connections with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

“The CEO Water Mandate will help us accelerate our water stewardship goals and contribute to the UN SDGs,” said Kristen Siemen, chief sustainability officer at General Motors. “As we continue to drive efficiencies in our own manufacturing, we will also work with other endorsing companies to establish, implement and advocate for water stewardship practices that promote corporate water management that benefit people, our communities and our environment.”

GM will also make headway by tracking its water progress and successes in accordance with the mandate’s six main commitment areas: Direct Operations; Supply Chain and Watershed Management; Collective Action; Public Policy; Community Engagement; and Transparency.

Even though the company’s operations aren’t considered to be water-intensive, the use of water is still necessary for certain manufacturing processes. However, GM says that they are committed to using water responsibly and efficiently, particularly in regions where it’s scarce. Three highlighting examples include:

 

  • Zero Liquid Discharge: In the San Luis Potosí Assembly plant located in Mexico, the system will reduce its dependence on well water withdrawal, cleansing and converting wastewater into drinkable water for the GM’s paint and machining undertakings, also encompassing lessons water withdrawal from the local aquifer thanks to its reuse of water.                                                       
  • Stormwater Reuse: At the automaker’s Factory ZERO plant located in Detroit, they’ve constructed a way to reuse stormwater using harnessing its cooling towers and manufacturing systems, in addition to added stormwater ponds and filtration technology to reduce stormwater excess to the Detroit River. Moreover, the stormwater ponds have been especially helpful in the city during days with heavy storms.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  
  • Water Treasure Hunts: GM has made a habit of ushering these hints to aid in training local plant employees in pointing out opportunities for water efficiency and applying solutions. Last year, the automaker’s eco-friendly efforts regarding their management were rewarded by the acknowledgment of the CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project), an international nonprofit organization, on its Water A-List. The CDP is responsible for setting the standard for global disclosures regarding investors, companies, cities, states, and regions to conserve their impacts on the environment. The company says that they will continue to take action and find creative ways to uphold water quality and preservation throughout its operations, supply chain, and manufacturing communities.

Experian Lists Top 20 Leased U.S. Vehicles

Experian, a multinational consumer credit reporting company recently established twenty of the most leased new vehicles in North America during the course of the fourth quarter 2020 calendar year. As stated by Experian’s most recent report, Chevrolet was ranked as the third most leased car brand in the States during the specified time span.

As claimed by the latest Experian report, approximately 9.21 percent of Chevrolet vehicles made up of all those leased in North America amidst Q4 of 2020. Leading the pack with the highest-ranking leased model was Honda with 11.6 percent, afterward with Toyota by 11.16 percent. The Jeep then came in fourth with 5.47 percent, thereupon Ford at fifth with 5.41 percent.

Although GMC hides a bit farther down the list, it still brings in a solid 2.38 percent while ranking at sixteenth place. Cadillac comes in at the nineteenth place with 1.76 percent. 

The latest scoop from Experian doesn’t just reveal rank but also assess financing types of all the leased new vehicles that were mentioned. For instance, financing for Chevrolet cars were biased towards loans, as 26.82 percent leased, while 73.18 percent brought out a loan.

As expected, Experian pointed out SUVs as the main segment that buyers financed new cars during Q4 of the 2020 calendar year, specifically with more than 55 percent of new vehicles financed placing into the SUV segment. This encompasses 4.66 percent of full-size models, 25.72 percent of mid-size vehicles, and 25.14 percent of small cars. Full-size pickup truck models made up 13.98 percent of new vehicles financed, during which mid-size pickups composed 3.95 percent of the bunch. Mid-size sedans comprised 9.85 percent of financed vehicles, while small sedans made up 8.27 percent.

Moreover, these figures also reveal a year-over-year downturn concerning the percentage of new vehicles loan and leases, such as with 85.19 percent in financing for new vehicles in Q4 of 2019, opposed to 81.12 percent over the same time span in 2020.

What’s impressive is that electric and hybrid models currently account for 6.2 percent of financing for new vehicles, involving 2.25 percent that are all-electric, and 4.47 percent that are hybrids. This is a dramatic increase as opposed to 2019, which had 1.39 percent for fully-electric models, and 2.9 percent for hybrids.

The Corvette Stingray Is Fast On The Road And The Fastest In North American Sales

The Corvette Wins First Place In U.S. Sales

Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, car sales, as well as a general slew of other businesses, saw a bit (or not so bitty) depression in traffic, and continued to see this slump for the remainder of the year (2020). Slowly but surely, the crisis began to somewhat stabilize, allowing for North American car sales to make a comeback. Some models, in particular, rode past the sales level a year ago. On top of this, car sales overall increased because of low-interest rates. This is thanks to the Federal Reserve, which allowed manufacturers to make offers on car loans more enticing.

Dependent on supply, these manufacturers ship these vehicles to their respective dealers and what the sellers estimate that they will be able to sell on certain models. On the end of the manufacturer, factory output can pose a challenge, while from the perspective of the dealer, it’s more of a guesstimate about what consumers in the market would go for.

Based on this dynamic, the amount of time that a car is lodged at a dealership parking lot can average about 48.9 days, with at least 60 being optimal. While there are plenty of cars that are able to catch the attention of shoppers faster than others, owing to either limitations from the factory or an overwhelming good customer demand at the dealership.

Last month, the most favored vehicle in North America was so in-demand that it became America’s fastest-selling car, and that ladies and gents is the Chevrolet Corvette. This flagship vehicle of the largest division of General Motors (GM), also being the sole two-seat sports car that hasn’t skipped a beat for over six decades (1953 to be exact). According to iSeeCars, the Chevrolet’s prized possession reaches up to 13.1 for days-on-sells.

The starting price for the Corvette is $59,000, (plus destination fee). This year’s model makes use of the “Stingray” moniker, which the company has gone back and forth with throughout the years. The convertible model of the car can reach as high as $90,000,  (plus destination fee). Moreover, the output is 495 horsepower from its 6.2-liter V8 engine, which can push from 0 to 60 mph in only 2.9 seconds.

Karl Brauer, iSeeCars Executive Analyst, weighed in on the fastest-selling cars as a whole, regarding those that don’t last long on the dealers lot: “While the fastest-selling new cars span many price points from $24,278 to $102,537, the average for these 20 vehicles is $43,829, which is well above the $36,836 average price of all new cars.”

General Motors (GM) initially planned on revamping their Chevy Equinox model for this year (2021). Unfortunately, the automaker faced obstacles related to the coronavirus pandemic, thus, these revisions were postponed until 2022.

Nevertheless, the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox will at least get some small but significant changes from the previous year, which encompasses the elimination of two equipment groups and one engine option.

Model Lineup

For LT models, the 2LT equipment group and for Premier models, the 3LZ equipment group have been scrapped. Their elimination is related to the ceasing of the turbocharged 2.0L LTG engine (we’ll discuss later).

Exterior

Externally, the 2021 Chevy Equinox will also get rid of two exterior color options, which are Chocolate Metallic and Cayenne Orange Metallic.

Interior

Inhouse, the Equinox SUV embraces the Leather Package into its color palette. Namely: 

  • Jet Black perforated leather-appointed seating
  • Memory settings
  • Inside rearview auto-dimming mirror
  • Outside heated power-adjustable and auto-dimming mirrors

Mechanical

As previously mentioned, the 2LT and 3LZ equipment groups will be eliminated. In addition, the following mechanical components will also retire. Specifically: 

  • Turbocharged 2.0L I-4 LTG engine
  • 9-speed automatic transmission
  • Trailering equipment
  • Factory-installed trailer hitch
  • Trailer hitch closeout cover
  • 4,850 lbs. GVWR
  • 3.17 axle ratio
  • 17-inch front and 16-inch rear 4-wheel antilock disc brakes
  • Dual-outlet stainless-steel exhaust
  • 17-inch steel spare wheel
  • 17-inch compact spare tire

Powertrain

As a result of the removal of the LTG engine, the 2021 Equinox SUV will now be offered solely with one engine choice, which is the turbocharged 1.5L LYX inline four-cylinder. This motor has an output of 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque. Remarkably, the engine is partnered with a 6-speed automatic transmission for each trim, and the car will continue to offer either a front-wheel or all-wheel-drive configuration.

Packages

The automaker’s Midnight Edition now involves the following features: 

  • Jet Black premium cloth (substitutes Jet Black perforated leather-appointed seating)
  • Exclusive mold-in-color black grille and mesh with black surround
  • Dark finish fog lamp bezel surround
  • Front and rear Black bow ties
  • 19-inch Gloss Black aluminum wheels

2021 Chevrolet Equinox Factories

The construction of the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox is done at the following factories:

  • GM Ramos plant located in Ramos Arizpe, Coahuila, Mexico managed by GM Mexico
  • GM CAMI plant located in Ontario, Canada managed by GM Canada
  • GM-SAIC Wuhan II located in Hubei, China managed by Shanghai-GM
  • Deliveries of the latest Equinox started in Q3 2020, which is to say that the units were already on dealership lots.

Furthermore, Chevy’s SUV will get its comprehensive revamp for the 2022 model year. Following this, it is expected that the Equinox will stay in production until 2023-2024, which will mark the beginning of a new generation where the compact will be replaced with an all-new model.

Chevrolet Plans To Introduce Its First Electrified Blazer To China

The all-new Chevrolet Blazer has become a hot commodity, more specifically in places such as North America as well as China, where the SUV is being sold in a different variant of sorts than what we’re used to. The success, however, isn’t all that surprising, given the growing rise in popularity of SUVs and crossovers, and after the Blazer made its debut in August of 2020, in company with the larger 3-row Blazer, it was reported by GM Authority that General Motors is planning to launch a new mild hybrid system for its Blazer model in the Chinese market.

According to China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, SAIC-GM (Shanghai General Motors Company), the company’s main joint venture in that region, a new 48-vol mild-hybrid powertrain will soon launch for the Chevrolet Blazer. The master plan is to make progress on the fuel economy and driving performance of the midsize crossover, which would also help to toe in line with the nation’s rigorous environmental regulations.

This electrified move is a significant achievement for the Blazer, as it is receiving its new motor for the first time internationally. As of yet, the SUV was sold with just its gasoline internal combustion engines in both the States and China, encompassing six- and  4-cylinder options. As a result, the Blazer will join the club of other GM models that recently employed a hybrid powertrain in the Asian market.

In the same way as the 2021 Cadillac XT5 and XT6 recently released overseas, the latest hybrid Blazer in the Chinese market will be equipped with the turbocharged 2.0L LSY I-4 engine as well as an electric motor and a 48 V battery. Even though this revelation doesn’t exactly disclose the output of the Blazer’s system, it’s highly plausible that it will harness the 250 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, just like the Cadillacs that the Blazer shares its C1 platform on, in addition to their mechanics.

From an aesthetic point of view, the Chevy Blazer mild-hybrid should resemble the current models. For the time being, it’s undetermined if buyers of the upcoming electric motor will be given the option of two- and three-row configurations, rather than just the seven-seat model. 

It is expected that the upcoming electric Blazer will be revealed in China in the weeks following. It’s also expected that during this short wait, more information will be revealed until the official launch, which is set for the second quarter of 2021. In the same manner as the Blazer constructed at the SAIC-GM Cadillac Jinqiao plant, there aren’t any plans to bring about the electric motor in the North American model. On the other hand, automakers have a tendency to make initial plans for international in regards to their hybrids and fully electric vehicles before finally bringing it to our side of the waters.

The Hybrid Corvette C8 Is Rumored To Be Named The E-Ray

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevrolet Miami, Chevrolet Stingray, Chevy, Chevy Corvette, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, Chevy Miami, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Monday, March 8th, 2021 at 4:25 PM

 

Just when you thought the legendary Chevrolet C8 Corvette couldn’t wow us any more than it already has, the company surprises us with a hybrid variant.

The American automaker proves itself to be a powerhouse once again, as they plan on putting to use the name “E-Ray”, as claimed in a report from the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). The parent company, General Motors (GM) already trademarked this name about six years ago, so perhaps this new electric venture has been in the works for quite some time. Reports also say that not only will the name be used for the first hybrid Corvette model, but the sports car could make its grand entrance into the 2023 lineup.

According to the website, The Trade Group, the E-Ray will make its appearance in two model years, in the same place where the spot was initially saved for the Grand Sport trim package in previous generations of the Vette’. The new hybrid will be energized by the 6.2-liter LT2 V8, the same engine that was on the base Stingray model, also encompassing two electric motors, which will both be fixed on the front axle. The new engine will certainly be more impressive than the regular gasoline-powered motor, but it will provide that final wow factor due to its significant upsurge in power from 490 horses and 465 ft-lbs of torque to a facelifting 600 horses and 500 ft-lbs of torque. 

The report from SAE’s also brings attention to the fact the center tunnel on the mixed-material chassis seems to have an extensive amount of space for one of the automaker’s Ultium battery packs, while the front of the Corvette has space for two electric motors. The suggestion is that there will be two potential disadvantages to the hybrid powertrain with one being the adding of weight and the other the loss of cargo space in the front truck. Nevertheless, it is estimated that the variant will have a starting pricing for around $100,000, (plus destination fee).

Only loyal Chevrolet fans would know that this isn’t exactly the first time we’ve heard rumors of an eco-friendly Corvette, however, it’s important to note that the company hasn’t exactly confirmed…or denied that they are going through with the moniker. A representative from the automaker told Robb Report said, “We’re not going to engage in rumor and speculation.”

Despite GM playing coy, there has been more fuel added to the fire of the E-Ray rumors less than a month after the company announced their plans for electrifying their Corvette. Toward the end of January, the automaker revealed its plan to begin switching out internal combustion engines and its effort to eventually only sell battery-operated vehicles by the year 2035. Theoretically, the E-Ray still has an internal combustion engine, but it is a very important step on the journey to transition to an all-electric C8.

Super Cruisin’ With The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV

By melanie s | Posted in Bolt EUV, Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevrolet Miami, Chevy, Chevy Bolt, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, Chevys Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Friday, March 5th, 2021 at 4:04 PM

The Chevrolet Bolt is a beloved electric hatchback, favored for its miniature body and eco-friendly abilities. When it was first introduced into the market, it received a list of automotive awards and accolades, so it was no surprise with its success that it would eventually bring on an SUV variant. The cleverly named Bolt EUV (electric utility vehicle) enhances the Bolt hatchback’s abilities of practicality and usefulness, and with the growing popularity of large compacts, it’s certainly something we can see today’s consumers getting excited about.

For the sake of clarity, it’s important to note that the EUV won’t be drastically different from the regular Bolt. In fact, both models are featured on GM’s BEV2 platform (for small electric vehicles). Simply put, the EUV may be considered a bit too small and restricted to even be considered an official compact crossover. 

The styling is a mix between the Bolt and Chevrolet’s larger Blazer, as well as a bit of its Trailblazer. What truly gives it some distinction is the availability hands-free Super Cruise driver-assistance package. Besides being gifted to a few Launch Edition models, this feature is exclusive to the EUV high-tier Premier trim as an option and also involves three years with OnStar service.

As far as the drive goes, the highway drive with the Super Cruise system was relatively impressive, as the car stayed put in its lane and covered lots of road without the need of human interaction. Technologies like a camera focused on the driver and infrared sensors help keep you focused on what’s ahead because if you find yourself in La La Land, it’s a sure thing that the system will start to beep.

It’s been estimated that the EUV should be able to zoom at 60 mph in about 7.0 seconds, but it is certain that the engine’s low-end pull is quite stone, as it easily gets the motor going away from stoplights and zoom past all of the grannies on the highway. The regenerative braking system is also a plus, as this recaptures the energy that the car gained through momentum, and saves it for future use. The braking system ultimately saves money and reduces overall brake usage.

As far as interior technologies are concerned there is a new 8.0-inch infotainment display located in the gauge cluster and a central 10.2-inch touchscreen, which are both easy to use. The car comes with standard wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, as well as a charging pad. Available features include heated and ventilated front seats, as well as heated rear seats. Safety features include forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and lane-departure warning, while rear cross-traffic alert, a surround-view camera system, and adaptive cruise control can serve as an option.

Distance-wise, GM has estimated that its SUV variant ranges at 250 miles, while is a setback of 9 miles from its hatchback. When plugged into a 240-volt outlet, the battery should take about seven hours to fully recharge the EUV. Either you choose the Bolt or EUV, you’ll get standard DC fast-charging capability, with the 55-kW maximum charge rate able to “refuel” the EUV with up to 95 miles of range in 30 minutes.

One of the final enticements the automaker seems to offer for the EUV, its affordable price. The base price of the larger vehicle is $33,995, (plus destination fee), which is lower than the starting price of the 2020 Bolt at $37,495, (plus destination fee).

Chevrolet Designers Show Off Their Unofficial Split-Window Design For The Corvette C8

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevrolet Miami, Chevrolet Stingray, Chevy, Chevy Corvette, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Thursday, March 4th, 2021 at 1:32 PM

 

Chevrolet Designers Seem Split On Their Unofficial Window Design

Chevrolet’s Corvette sports car had quite an incredible career in the automotive market spanning more than 60 years. Since its debut, it’s been considered one of the preferred cars by adrenaline enthusiasts, more particularly with the automaker’s Corvette Sting Ray, which was famous for its 1963 split-window. Designers of General Motors (GM) were close to bringing back this classic style element onto the mid-engine C8 Corvette but pulled back from the idea. However, it appears that the creators have had a change of heart, more particularly Rain Prisk, by attempting to tack on a split-window design to the mid-engine Corvette.

This restyling includes modifying the C8’s engine hatch, or rather completely getting rid of it. Alternatively, the roofline is now extended right to the rear end, highlighting the coupe-like style. It makes the Corvette look a bit more curvaceous, even comparable to a Bugatti from the rear-three-quarter angle. The longer roof also alters the car’s B-pillar layout, substituting the small piece of triangular trim with a couple of intake embellishments. The stretched roof is highlighted with a glossed spine curving from the roof to the letter “Corvette” at the rear, separating the rear window and reinstating an icon.

The C8’s rear is a bit more refined in the rendering as opposed to the production car Chevrolet on the market, however, it misses out on the high-mount brake light midway. On the other hand, that could be added somewhere else. When GM was constructing the new C8, it made attempts to include the split-window design. Still, according to Chevrolet Performance Exterior Design Director, Tom Peters, these efforts “came across as focused”. The company’s artists couldn’t figure out how to get the split-window design to flow well with the rest of the car’s sharp-edged set-up.

On the flip side, it might be for the best that the automaker left the split-window in its original placement. The 1963 Corvette is considered a classic because of its differentiating feature. The company did away with the split-window design the following year after receiving much flack about the visibility of the rear, unintentionally creating an icon of sorts. The Corvette’s mid-engine design helps in neutralizing some of those concerns since rearward visibility was never on par to start with. At the current moment, it still appears that the split-window wouldn’t mesh well with the C8, but who knows if things will change for the Corvette C9.

Split-window or not, the Chevrolet Corvette is a dynamic vehicle that rocks an incredible design and provides a ride that only one can dream of…or simply make a purchase at our dealership, Miami Lakes Chevrolet. We have a wide selection of Chevrolet models like the Corvette, at a variety of different styles and prices.

The Chevy Bolt EUV Skips Out On Automated Lane Change

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami on Monday, February 22nd, 2021 at 9:30 AM

 

The Chevy Bolt EUV Bring On The Automated Lane Change

The distinction that the Bolt EUV (otherwise known as Chevy’s electric SUV) makes in its particular model is that it will not encompass the Automated Lane Change technology that has been recently presented to General Motors three Cadillac models: the 2021 luxury Cadillac CT4 and 2021 Cadillac CT5 sedans and the latest 2021 Cadillac Escalade full-size luxury SUV. 

The Automated Lane Change enables the vehicle to automatically change lanes, thus signaling an progression of the standard Super Cruise system. Vehicles that offer this system have a fairly simple task, with the driver just having to either tap or fully latch the turn signal level in order to start the process. Doing this allows the system to look for a convenient opening in the indicated lane, and once it’s safe to do so, move in that particular spot. In the same way with all Super Cruise functions, this is only workable on compatible highways, of which potential buyers will be happy to know that there are around about 200,000 miles in North America and Canada, as well as 180,000 miles in China.

At the digitized reveal for the vehicle, the Super Cruise Assistant Program Engineering Manager, Jeff Dinakar, explained why Automated Lane Change would not be accessible on the Bolt EUV, saying “This requires VIP.”

To explain, VIP expresses itself as a Vehicle Intelligent Platform, which is also known as the GM Global B electronic architecture. Think of it as the electronic nervous system of the vehicle, progressively, Global B has been replacing the previous Global A in General Motors cars, with some dating back all the way to the 1990s, and then some.

While it’s certain that the brand new Bolt EUV is set to go on sale this summer, technologically and mechanically, it is comparable to Chevrolet’s other fully-electric and smaller crossover, the Bolt EV, which is in the midst its own facelift for the 2022 model year (though will not have Super Cruise available). The electric architecture is essentially Global A, but with a slight update that develops it in Global B’s direction without really turning it into a “proper” Global B vehicle. As a result, the electric system would not be a suitable partner for the Bolt EUV to be matched with Automated Lane Change.

It is for this reason that the Bolt EUV’s Super Cruise system will be comparable to the one that we first saw in the 2018 Cadillac CT6. This tells the driver that it is safe to take their hands off in particular instances. As stated by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Automated Vehicles for Safety document, though the Super Cruise system is a driver assistance system, that doesn’t make it fully autonomous.

In fact, the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) describes it as a Level 2 system, going as far to describe it as such: “Vehicle has combined automated functions, like acceleration and steering, but the driver must remain engaged with the driving task and monitor the environment at all times.”

The C8 Corvette’s Rapid Blue Becomes More Inclusive With The Camaro Pace Car

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevrolet Miami, Chevy, Chevy Camaro, Chevy Camaro Miami, Chevy Corvette, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, chevy silverado, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Friday, February 19th, 2021 at 2:53 PM

 

2022 Chevy Camaro Steals The Show With C8’s Rapid Blue

The C8 Corvette Stingray is almost known more for its incredible engine options than it is for its athletic and muscular style, which is only enhanced by its color selection. However, it appears that the C8’s dynamic paint selection will soon make a pact with another Chevrolet model, namely the Camaro with the color dubbed Rapid Blue.

Last Saturday, (Feb, 13th) the automaker’s 2022 Camaro SS 1 LE led the automobile troops to green for NASCAR’s Beef It’s What’s For Dinner 300 race from Daytona International Speedway. In the same way that the C8 Corvette paced the Daytona 500 the night after, the Camaro featured the Rapid Blue with a hint of red, white, and black. It was only until now that Stingrays have ever had this type of finish…and we couldn’t be more thrilled.

 

This bold blue gets even more accessible, as it was also sported on the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 RST, which also paced NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series’ NextEra Energy 250 race last Friday (Feb, 13th). Unfortunately, the Silverado won’t embrace the Rapid Blue as an official member of its color palette for the 2022 model year. This denotes that the revamped Silverado seen in the last week could have been the only one ever made from the factory, and it’s a mystery if we’ll ever see one like that again.

 

Unsurprisingly, Rapid Blue is of the most popular exterior colors for the 2020 model year of the Corvette and made up six percent of all the vehicles that were produced. The most favored, however, Torch Red, fulfilling 25 percent, following suit by Arctic White by 15 percent, Black by 11.7, Sebring Orange by 6.8 percent, and Elkhart Lake Blue by 6.7 percent.

Of course, what most race car enthusiast are probably excited about is what’s under the hood, and avid fans will be eager to know that that the featured Camaro is geared with a 6.2L LT1 V8 engine and Magnetic Ride Control suspension, undoubtedly giving the best performance that you can get from a pace car.

Highlighting Features On The Camaro

The wait for the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro may seem a bit unbearable for now, but loyal followers still have a great selection of colors to choose from such as Crush, Red Hot, Satin Steel Metallic, Summit White, Black, Shadow Gray Metallic, Shock, and Wild Cherry Tintcoat. The car even comes with some funky interior colors like Jet Black, Medium Ash Gray, Kalahari, Adrenaline Red, Ceramic White, and Jet Black with Red accents.

The perks only get better with a plethora of standard comforts such as power windows, cruise control, an 8-way-power driver’s seat and a 7-inch touch-screen audio system that involves wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Bluetooth, dual USB ports, AUX input, and GM’s 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.

Miami Lakes Automall is currently selling the 2021 Chevrolet Camaro with its lowest price for just around $25,000, (plus destination fee).

The 2022 Chevrolet Camaro Is Near and Ready To Surge Ahead

Chevrolet is preparing the 2022 Camaro to come out with perks that would satisfy any pony car enthusiasts. The 6.2-Liter LT1 V8 powertrain is intense and offers high-octane strength that makes owners rush to jump back into its comfortable seating. The popularity of the Chevrolet brand extends to the arena known as the Great American Race, aka the Daytona 500. Some surprises will be showcased at this year’s Daytona race. Looking to learn more about all the perks coming to the Chevy brand? 

The 2022 Chevrolet Camaro Makes Debut

The 2022 Chevy Camaro brings out the best in the Chevrolet brand. There will be a freshly added color for owners to choose from with the addition of the Rapid Blue exterior color. The debut of the Camaro in Rapid Blue will take place at this year’s Daytona 500. The price point for the color is not listed yet, but considering how attractive it looks, owners will opt to add it. Chevy has previously priced the paint color option like this one at $495. We expect the Corvette and Silverado to offer this color along with the Camaro. The plan for General Motors is to offer the Camaro for only so long as a gasoline-powered vehicle. The goal is to ramp up its electric-vehicle count to every single vehicle sold by the Chevy brand by 2035. The technology of the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro has been revamped to include wireless capabilities for owners including Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a 7-inch touchscreen. 

Is the Camaro Ready To Surge Again?

In more recent months, we’ve seen the popularity rise for the Camaro. In the 4th quarter of 2019, Camaro saw a climb of 3% growth and sold over 7,500 Camaros to close out the last quarter before the COVID-19 outbreak took out the Camaro sales in 2020. However, the 2021 Camaro did not reach the sales goals of General Motors. This is why the next model year (2022 model year) will contain more to offer. Originally, the Chevrolet brand was rumored to offer a 55th Anniversary Edition, but that does not seem to be a possibility. The 2022 Camaro starts at $35,000 MSRP (Plus destination fee).

Chevrolet Invites The Magic In As They Team Up With Disney World

Chevrolet and Disney Partnership

Sunday, February 14th, Cupid returns to strike his arrow on lovebirds around the world, it’s also the day that Chevrolet will unveil its newest 2022 Bolt electric vehicles in a marketing campaign with their long-running collaboration with Walt Disney World. This unveiling involves the automaker highlighting the 2022 Bolt hatchback and EUV (a.k.a electric SUV).

General Motors (GM), the parent company of Chevrolet, has been a long-serving sponsor at Walt Disney World and has also been a sponsor of the transportation pavilion since 1982, the year of Epcot’s opening. In 1966, World of Motion closed and GM continued its sponsorship of the replacement attraction, Test Track. Since then, the company replaced its branding with Chevrolet.

A similar marketing strategy is being used by a competing automaker, Honda, specifically for its Odyssey vehicle. Honda’s campaign centers on their sponsored Autopia go-kart attraction. This scheme is comparable to the Bolt, especially with Disney-themed references like pixie dust, Disney magic, and emphasis on families.

However, GM still has a stronger standing with Disney. The Mickey Mouse company worked with the automaker in the 1940s for videos on safety. On top of this, when Disney launched its on-site rideshare program, Minnie Vans, Chevrolet SUVs were used. 

For the announcement of the upcoming Bolt, Chevrolet stated, “Realizing the dream of an all-electric future will require more than just technology — it’s about having the desire, imagination and ingenuity to build a better tomorrow.”

As proven by early 2017, this “better tomorrow” concept is encompassed with autonomous vehicles. During this time, L.A. Times reported that Disney was planning on launching a pilot program that used self-driving shuttles. Jim Hill later shared on a podcast episode that the program would initially launch for cast members to journey backstage and then eventually transition to guests across the resort.

At the current moment, autonomous shuttles drive around town centers and suburban areas like Orlando’s Lake Nona, it is that location where there is talk of Disney scouting out an office space. Then, one of the forerunners of autonomous vehicles, Cruise, is undergoing testing in San Francisco. 

Honda is also pushing for their own expansion, as they are also investing in the startup. Additional investors in Cruise involve Microsoft, starting in 2019. Azure, Microsoft’s cloud and edge computing program is also included with both Disney and the Cruise platform. 

Owing to a Super Cruise subscription service, the 2022 Bolt is said to hold similar technologies, with Chevy calling it the “industry’s first true hands-free driver assistance system”.

Cutting Down The Costs On Carbon

Another project by Disney includes working to decrease its carbon footprint, which certainly explains the push for electric vehicles. One of the ways it does this is by tracking its marks by division, with a carbon tax used to counteract its impact. Though it’s been active for the last decade, it’s recently received criticism with its major transportation fleet, encompassing more than 300 buses for its parks and resorts. However, it is worth noting that they’ve embraced solar farms, renewable energy, and additional carbon-cutting initiatives.

On the brighter side of things, it is possible these autonomous vehicles will lower labor costs. In fact, in 2019 Cruise obtained Dashride, an automated dispatching service for rideshare fleets.

GM aims to offer around 20 electric vehicles in the States within the next four years. The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt will make its debut on Lover’s Day, Feb. 14, with the model, as well as the EUV, available to consumers later this year.

What separates the Bolt from the rest of the vehicles in its segment? The results of the 2020 sales year included 20,754 vehicles sold, which was over 4,300 more than the previous year. This past year provided a significant jump in sales. The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt is going to see an increase in sales yet again if the previous years indicate the future. There is less mystery involving the abilities of EVs as more buyers opt for better mileage and improved EV designs rather than traditional gasoline engines. The Tesla Model 3 finished on top, but before long we might see Chevrolet pull ahead as its engineering and technology grows. 

Chevrolet Is Aiming For Number One

Chevy did sell more Bolt EVs than Tesla sold of its Model S vehicle. Even against non-EVs, Chevrolet is proud of the accomplishments done by the Bolt. The Bolt EV sold more than twice that of the Nissan Leaf sold and almost three times the amount sold over rival Audi and its e-tron and e-tron Sportback EVs. The good news for readers looking for the Chevrolet Bolt, the next model year will see a mid-cycle refresh.

Upcoming Chevy Bolt 

 The refresh for the 2021 model year was pushed back to the 2022 model year. The COVID-19 outbreak is the reason to blame for the skipped model year. The rise of EVs is expected to reach as much as around 40 percent of General Motors sales within just four years. As soon as 2025 is here, the world will look very different. Word on the street, according to GM Authority, is General Motors will also carry many more models that will promote EV capabilities. For our readers, let us know what you think on social media

General Motors Gas And Diesel Cars May Go Extinct By 2035

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevrolet Miami, Chevy on Wednesday, February 3rd, 2021 at 4:28 PM

 

GM Pushes Hard For More Electric Cars

General Motors (GM) recently announced its plans to cease sales of its gas and diesel charged vehicles by the year 2035, they are doing this as part of their pledge to change into a fully carbon-neutral operation by 2040. This move by the automaker has been described as “an aspiration to eliminate tailpipe emissions from new light-duty vehicles by 2035.”

GM also tagged along with the Business Ambition Pledge, which is an international agreement on working to reduce the global temperature rise to approximately 1.5 degrees °C above pre-industrial levels.

“General Motors is joining governments and companies around the globe working to establish a safer, greener and better world,” Mary Barra, GM’s chief executive, said in a statement last Thursday (Jan, 28). “We encourage others to follow suit and make a significant impact on our industry and on the economy as a whole.”

Other automakers such as BMW, Ford, Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, and Volvo have also made their pledge to the international climate agreement.

Moreover, a number of regions and nations are planning to restrict or completely ban new sales of combustion operated vehicles like Norway by 2025 and the United Kingdom by 2030, this also includes Japan and California by 2035. 

So far, GM has begun making moves for the transition, as it spent $27 billion in electric cars and in the development of autonomous vehicles between 2020 and 2025. This large sum on EVs is more than GM’s funding of gas and diesel versions. To add on, this plan involves reconstructing its Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Center in Michigan, as well as a factory in Spring Hill Tennessee, for the sole purpose of building electric vehicles.

The initiative also involves releasing 30 new global electric vehicles by 2025, with all of its self-driving cars on its electric platform. According to the automaker, GM drivers make up as much as 75% of their carbon emissions.

Mike Ramsey, automotive and smart mobility analyst at research firm Gartner Inc recently spoke with Forbes Wheels, saying “Think about the money that might have been committed to a new engine or transmission that would be expected to last 10 years,” also saying. “I expect we will see almost no investment in the internal combustion engines from here on out except things that can be done incrementally or with software.”

Some car companies that are pushing their electric plans will have the challenge of being persuasive enough to entice their customers to make the transition from their gasoline operated cars, and this is especially true for GM since Tesla’s Model 3 car made up nearly half of the EV sales volume, last year. 

“They will have to be creative and maybe do things they wouldn’t have in the past, like subsidize home chargers or even work directly with power companies or even solar installers,” said Ramsey.

One shouldn’t underestimate the American powerhouse, as Gary Silberg, Global Automotive Sector Leader for KPMG, claims that it may prove to be the most suited to lead the EV market. Regions where developments for electric charging are North American and China, and GM happens to be the head honcho in its sales by 17%. “GM is clever,” Silberg says. “An all EV strategy could work for them.”

Additional plans from GM encompass offering an electric vehicle in each of its segments, specifically sedans, crossovers, SUVs, and trucks. They also want to taper gas and diesel light-duty vehicles, leaving larger trucks and commercial models with internal combustion engines.

Finally, GM is constructing variants of larger vehicles with zero tailpipe emissions. Last week, the company announced an agreement with Navistar International, a heavy-duty truck manufacturer, to supply hydrogen fuel cell units for a green semi-tractor model. The hydrogen-charged rig will perform a series of tests by motor carrier J.B. Hunt in 2022 and is scheduled for commercial production in 2024.

The Chevrolet Camaro Is Saying No To Retirement…For Now

Chevrolet Camaro May Get A Longer Lifespan

The iconic pony car, the Chevrolet Camaro joining Australia’s premier touring car series is certainly a risky move for General Motors. Apart from this, the company has apparently discounted the Z/28, starting from June 2019, having had plans to cease operations on the Camaro entirely in 2023. On the contrary, it appears that this strategy is no longer alive since there are new reports hinting that the current Camaro could stay alive well into 2026.

This change of plans was reported by Australia’s Which Car, stating that it “understands” the muscle car’s retirement has been deferred to 2026. At this time, both local rivals of the Camaro’s are expected to get their annual refreshments, with the Mustang allegedly transitioning to an Explorer-inspired construction in 2022, and the Dodge Challenger and Charger to a revamped platform in 2023. On top of this, the competitors’ spotlight feature is available hybrid power on all three vehicles. If the reports of the Camaro’s extended stay are indeed true, it could indicate GM’s attempt to entice buyers that are disinterested in hybrid mechanics than the Camaro’s customary fusing of V8 and a manual transmission.

Regardless, GM may also decide to hone in on a whole other aspect of the sports car domain, with an unidentified executive starting in June 2019 concurring “a two-door mainstream sports car for Chevrolet” to be “part of future GM electric vehicle plans.” This vehicle may compare closely to the Camaro, even more than the Ford Mach-E resembles the Mustang. Al Oppenheiser, a former Camaro engineer would administrate GM’s EV development starting in 2018, a position in which he had significant influence over the development of the GMC Hummer…the dynamic 1,000-horsepower Hummer.

At the current moment, the company has not elaborated any further regarding the plans that it has for the Camaro. According to an automotive website, The Drive, when they reached out to GM for a statement the spokesperson only said that they wouldn’t “engage in speculation related to potential product timing announcements.” From our assessment, what this means is that we shouldn’t expect the brand to show a renewed interest in the Camaro unless its sales suddenly gain a significant increase and traction.

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

In the meantime, the 2021 Chevrolet Camaro has some exciting features in store. It has a highly efficient base 2.0-liter 4-cylinder that provides 275 horsepower. Advancing from there will get you a 335 horsepower V-6. The highest trim will gift buyers with a 6.2 L V8 that brings out an incredible 650 horsepower.

Interior goodies include a user-friendly touchscreen that links up with the brand’s Infotainment 3 software. Standard features encompass Wi-fi hotspot, and wireless Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. There are also available safety features like blind-spot monitoring and rear-cross traffic alert, forward collision warning, and rear parking sensors.

How It’s Made: After 60 Years The Mid-Engine Corvette Finally Gets The Limelight

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevrolet Miami, Chevrolet Stingray, Chevy, Chevy Corvette, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Wednesday, December 30th, 2020 at 4:19 PM

 

The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray C8, otherwise known as “America’s Sports Car,” has been the symbol of ultimate freedom and adventure for automotive enthusiasts everywhere since its debut. This year marked the first time this supercar was powered by a mid-engine rather than a front-engine, proving enhanced handling abilities. As revolutionary as this may seem, it isn’t the first time the brand has experimented with a mid-engine for the C8. The idea of the new engine started in the early ’60s, and finally picked up steam in 2011.

The production of the first-generation Corvette C1 started in 1953. Its knockout styling made it easy for it to draw the public’s attention. However, General Motors engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov (better known as “Father of the Corvette) envisioned a much brighter future for the car. That same year, the automaker hired Arkus-Duntov after the C1’s debut. After gradually climbing the ranks, he became the brand’s high-performance director in just two years. In 1955, the Corvette was released with an available 4.3-liter V8 engine.

Five years later, Arkus-Duntov orchestrated the CERV I, Chevrolet Engineering’s first research vehicle. Contrasting from the production Corvette, CERV I has a mid-engine layout on par with a Formula 1 racing vehicle. Highlighting the genius of Arkus-Duntov, as he knew that next-generation performance racing cars would eventually build upon a mid-engine chassis structure.

From the early 1960s to the mid-1990s Chevrolet only strummed up at least nine mid-engine prototypes for their Corvette before getting the C8 Corvette ready for production. The carmakers constructed various scale models and three clay renditions in actual size before giving it the final clearance. As far as we know, the Corvette with the spirit of the mid-engine supercar was the out-turn.

Now, at long last, the front-engine finally retires in favor of its successor. Presently, all C8 Corvette models sport a 6.2-liter small-block LT2 V8 engine breathing out 490 horses with 465 lb-ft of torque. If that isn’t enough, the Z51 Performance Package tacks on five more brownie points with both its horsepower and torque. Still staying true to its nature, the car is rear-wheel-drive, though a manual stick isn’t an option. The standard eight-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox is still beneficial.

According to executive editor Chris Davies of car site, Slash Gear, the C8 Corvette Convertible was visually impressed with the engine’s engine’s supercar-beating merit. “The Stingray leaps ahead like a beast scalded, monstrously quick and with a soundtrack to match,” said Davies. This is indeed a supercar, as it goes from zero to 60 mph in 2.9-seconds and has a top speed of 194 mph.

This month, (Dec, 12), Chevrolet released one of a two-part documentary series “Revolution: The Mid-Engine Corvette Development Story,” in which the company’s design team discuss what inspired the design of their new mid-engine. The second part of this documentary will air next year on January 4th at 1 p.m. ET.

Chevrolet is offering a package deal when it comes to its compact crossover, full-size SUVs, and utility vehicles for its 2021 model year. New features to expect are pretty minor but also significant, like with special editions and fresh colors, including updates to the engine and trim levels. At the same time, the Tahoe and Suburban will get a complete makeover. Here’s everything you need to know about the 2021 Chevrolet SUV lineup!

2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer

Now more than ever, subcompact crossovers are becoming all the rage for SUV lovers, and Chevrolet doesn’t disappoint the growing demand for one. The new 2021 Trailblazer is the brand’s entry-level SUV and has a front face that resembles a bit like its sporty cousin, the Camaro. The price seems pretty reasonable at just under $20,000, (plus the destination fee). Two engine choices that are offered include a 1.2-liter engine with 137 horsepower or a 1.3-liter engine with 155 horsepower.

2021 Chevrolet Trax

Chevrolet has another subcompact crossover that’s even smaller than the Trailblazer, which is the 2021 Trax. This model may a bit short but not in its features. The car comes with two new special editions available on the LT trim. The Sport Edition is decked out in black exterior accents, whilst the Midnight Edition fuses black accents with a Mosaic Black Metallic paint color. This car will be a breeze to park and will allow its passengers to take advantage of its storage space by its generous amount of cubbies.

2021 Chevrolet Equinox

The Chevrolet Equinox is a compact sports utility model with a refreshed design for 2021. However, the company revealed that the SUV will really be a 2022 model since the plans for their changes have been pushed back. What you need to know is that the 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine has been removed, and for now it’s being replaced by the 1.5-liter 4-cylinder. One shouldn’t fret too much about this, as the 1.5-liter is expected to make a comeback when the new Equinox comes out.

This almost-2021 vehicle will now have an available leather package on the LT trim, which includes black perforated leather-appointed seats, memory settings, an inside rearview auto-dimming mirror, and outside heated power-adjustable mirrors with auto-dimming.

2021 Chevrolet Blazer

The color palette on the 2021 Blazer is getting a bit of a switch-up, as colors like Pewter Metallic, Iron Gray Metallic, Cayenne Orange Metallic, and Cherry Red Tintcoat are tagging along.

The brand’s Safety Assist package gift wraps automatic emergency braking, front pedestrian braking, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, forward collision alert, following distance indicator, and auto high-beams. These goodies come standard on the 2LT, 3LT, RS, and Premier trims.

2021 Chevrolet Traverse

The full-size Chevrolet Traverse is also getting a facelift for 2022 and only minute changes for 2021. Chevrolet’s Safety Assist will outplace the Driver Conference II package and will be standard on the RS, Premier, and High Country. It will also be available on LT.

2021 Chevrolet Tahoe

The restyled Tahoe not only joins a new platform but is also winning with an independent rear suspension and a better ride quality. This SUV is 6.7 inches longer than before and also has increased in its wheelbase.  Third-row passengers now have 40 percent more legroom and 66 percent more cargo volume. Front-seat passengers will also enjoy the 10.2-inch touchscreen.

2021 Chevrolet Suburban

The big and bad Suburban will share the same features as the Tahoe, as well as technologies, but one thing that makes it stand out is that the improvement in the interior space. The Suburban provides more legroom and cargo volume than its predecessor, specifically in the second-and third-row.

2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV

At long last, Chevrolet is bringing on an electric crossover to their lineup. The production of the Bolt EUV will start in 2021, and based on the photos we’ve seen so far, it’s even more impressive than the current Bolt hatchback, with its increase in size and posher design. This car will also have a dashboard design that is more user-friend, as well as a new touchscreen and enhanced interior materials. The brand’s Super Cruise will also prove to be an asset to drivers once they get on the highway.

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

When the time finally comes to purchase any one of these Chevrolet SUVs, be sure to do it at Miami Lakes Automall! We sell a wide range of crossovers, subcompacts, and full-sized trucks from the brand and at various prices. Those who are interested in any of these vehicles can simply view our online new car inventory and chat with a representative for further assistance.

2021 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2021 Ford Escape

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevrolet Miami, Chevy, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, Chevy Equinox in Miami, Chevy Miami, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Thursday, December 10th, 2020 at 8:50 AM

 

The 2021 Chevrolet Equinox and 2021 Ford Escape are neck and neck in regards to their passenger space, impressive safety features and ratings, as well as their warranty coverage. However, even with identical twins, one of them has just a little bit more spice than the other. Let’s find out just how fraternal these SUVs are.

2021 Chevrolet Equinox

The Chevrolet Equinox is a package deal when it comes to providing comfort for all five of its passengers, impressive handling, and two fine engine choices, which is likely why it’s the brand’s best selling SUV. The 1.5-liter turbocharged engine has an EPA rating at a suitable 28 mpg combined and 27 mpg with all-wheel-drive. This car drives on 170 horsepower with 203 lb-ft of torque.

The All-American brand’s latest SUV has a great catalog of standard active-safety features like forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist, and even IntelliBeam automatic headlights.  It also has available blind-spot monitoring.

For entertainment, the Equinox has a  standard 7-inch touchscreen and an available 8-inch version. Both have Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot. The truck also has keyless entry, push-button start, four USB ports, 17-inch wheels, and the Teen Driver System that allows parents of tweens with a heavy foot to set parameters and relay information on driving habits.

Highlighting optional features include ventilated front seats, navigation, Bose audio, a panoramic sunroof, and a rear-seat entertainment system.

2021 Ford Escape

The Ford Escape was restyled last year and grew in size while also dropping a few pounds. The base engine upgraded to a turbocharger with a 3-cylinder 1.5-liter engine, which produces a decent 181 horsepower with 203 1b-ft of torque. The next engine option is a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, which really ramps up the ride with 250 horsepower. The eco-friendly hybrid engine only loses 50 horses, while the plug-in version does not differ much in its performance numbers. 

The SUV has an intriguing amount of standard driver-assistance features. These driver-assists are a part of the brand’s Co-Pilot 360 bundle and include automatic emergency braking (with pedestrian detection), a blind-spot detection system, lane-keeping assist, and automatic high-beam headlights. Some exciting leisures include an 8-inch Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which are present on all trims with the exception of the base S. Other standard features include 17-inch steel wheels, cloth seats, front bucket seats, a 6-speaker stereo, and Sync infotainment with Bluetooth, voice recognition, and in-vehicle Wi-Fi for up to 10 devices. There are also some exciting packages worth looking into, like the Technology Package for those who prioritize the best interior experience, or Class II Trailer Tow Package for off-road enthusiasts.

The Escape also has a design that is more carlike than SUV like with its rounded shape, and whether or not that is appealing comes down to a person’s purchase.

Final Suggestion

The 2021 Ford Escape has the advantage of providing hybrid engines, a great list of safety features, and even luggage space. However, the 2021 Equinox provides an overall better experience in its cabin with its stylish features and entertainment systems. On top of this, Equinox’s bigger and more aggressive design is easier to welcome than its competitor and also has a lower starting price. It is for this reason that the Equinox SUV is a more favorable choice for most car buyers.

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

The 2021 Chevrolet Equinox provides a lot of bang for your buck with its standard safety system, 3,500 towing capacity, standard entertainment features, and overall roominess. Those who are interested in this vehicle should take an online stroll at Miami Lakes Automall, we side a wide selection of Chevrolet vehicles like the Equinox and other SUVs.

The 2021 Chevrolet Trax Finally Spices Things Up With Its New Engine

The subcompact Chevrolet Trax was first introduced to us in 2015 and quickly warmed the hearts of SUV lovers, and since then it’s become one of the brand’s most popular cars. This crossover also shares platform space with the fan-favorite Buick Encore. The Trax received a significant styling change in 2017, gaining much inspiration from the automaker’s Malibu car. However, one feature that hasn’t changed is the Trax’s 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. As a matter of fact, Chevy hasn’t changed its engine since it’s first debut, so it’s safe to say that the 139-horsepowered machine is considered pretty ancient in automotive years. While its performance is considered decent enough, it needs a little extra pep in its step in order to continue competing well, and it appears that Chevrolet agrees.

GM Authority states that the 2021 Chevy Trax will finally ditch the 1.4-liter turbo and replace it with a spanking new version of the engine with the same displacement.

This new turbo, dubbed LE2, is not only more current but far more energetic and powerful than before with 152 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque. It’s worth noting, however, that loyal followers of the brand might be familiar with this engine, as it used to power the Cruze car (which is now discontinued), where it was geared with an automatic start/stop system. Additionally, there have been some reports that claim that the 2021 Trax will not have this function, but Chevrolet has not yet released specific details.

Taking into account the age of the Trax, and the introduction of its big brother, the 2021 Trailblazer,  one might not have expected the company to have vested much interest in a new engine. This tactic seems even more perplexing since it appears that these crossovers will be in competition with one another. On the other hand, it could be a genius idea, since these crossovers would cater to a different type of audience.

Some car sites like Car Buzz have made the argument that based on market research, the subcompact crossover segment is presently splitting into two separate groups, one being buyers who are looking for something more wallet-friendly as opposed to those who prioritize luxury.  The Trax seems best suited to budget-focused groups, especially since it has a starting price of $21,300, (plus destination fee). The company’s rationale might be that both models have different advantages for different buyers, therefore attracting more customers.

The latest Trax doesn’t need to pay much attention to the Trailblazer anyway because it’s real competition is the Ford EcoSport and Nissan Kicks. Meanwhile, the Trailblazer’s will fight to the death with its rivals, the Jeep Renegade and Toyota CH-R.

The 2021 Ford Ranger and 2021 Chevrolet Colorado Have An Off-Roading Face-Off

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevrolet Miami, Chevy, Chevy Colorado in Miami, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, chevy silverado, Chevy Silverado Miami, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Tuesday, November 24th, 2020 at 11:46 AM

 

The 2021 Ford Ranger and the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado are two rivals that just can’t quit each other in their mid-sized truck segment, but that’s what makes it so much fun! This time around, it’s a very tight race against the top-spot as they are both very efficient with their towing abilities and customizations. However, one of these brands has a little extra something that the other just can’t compete with, keep reading to find out!

2021 Ford Ranger

The 2021 Ford Ranger is re-introduced for the midsize truck segment with moves that are quite versatile and adaptable in a way that can quickly erase the memory of the previous model. It’s energized by a turbocharged 2.3-liter inline 4-cylinder engine that makes up to 270 horsepower with 310 lb-ft of torque and is paired to a 10-speed automatic transition. This powertrain is the only one that is offered by the two available cabbies, but this doesn’t mean that the powertrain isn’t adept in its abilities. For those who are more focused on carting passengers than actual gear, it’s recommended to opt for the SuperCrew rather than the two close for comfort SuperCab.  The inventive Blind Spot Monitoring has been augmented for towing, and it does this by having the system pay special attention to whatever the truck is hauling. Another exciting option is the Bang & Olufsen 10-speaker Audio System. Available on all models is the brand’s Co-Pilot360 safety suite, though standard on the XLT and Lariat trucks.

2021 Chevrolet Colorado

From the outside looking in, the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado is obviously a truck, but once the driver and their passengers step inside of the vehicle, it will be easy to mistake it for a comfort-focused SUV. The reason for this is because this Chevy truck doesn’t have that overly-energetic bounce that many vehicles in this segment have and it’s also great with steering. Though Colorado provides comfort in its cabin, it certainly doesn’t get too comfortable in pushing out high-ranking performance. Buyers of mid-sized pickups have the unique ability to opt for a diesel powertrain, with the automaker’s 2.8-liter Duramax incredibly skilled with towing and excellent with its mileage. It’s 2.0-liter inline-4 and a 3.6-liter V6 also has 2- and 4-wheel-drive drive systems. Off-road enthusiasts can make use of the Z71 and ZR2 trim levels owing to their rough and tough terrain capabilities. Additionally, the truck has off-roading accessories like a raised suspension, wider track, revamped bumpers, and a serviceable skid plate, that allows for an incredible adventure of a lifetime.

Similarities and Differences

The Ford Ranger and Chevrolet Colorado are comparable with their tough body-frame, varied selection of cabbies and beds, and near-identical towing capacities. With this in mind, one really has to squint to really differentiate one truck from the other, but the 2021 Ranger outranks its rival with its advanced features, fuel economy, as well as the New Tremor package which enhances the truck’s off-road abilities. On the other hand, the 2021 Colorado has the unique advantage of having a diesel option, top-ranking towing, and a noteworthy amount of possible customizations. With the Ranger unable to compete well enough against the Colorado’s diesel, it’s for this reason why it takes the modest but respectable second place trophy in our rankings.

Now that you know which off-roader truly takes the cake, why not make the final purchase at Miami Lakes Automall?

Chevrolet Might Be Advancing Release Date For The 2021 Corvette C8

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevrolet Miami, Chevrolet Stingray, Chevy, Chevy Corvette, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, Chevy Miami, Chevys Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Tuesday, November 10th, 2020 at 3:06 PM

 

The production of the brand-new Chevrolet Corvette C8 has been going through hell and high water to come into completion since 2019. This tumultuous affair started when the United Auto Workers Union arranged a strike and shutdown from state-to-state at GM facilities for about 40 days, putting a pause at the start of production. The global pandemic that followed afterward only worsened the situation.

Presently, it seems as though things are on the up and up for the making of the C8 since Corvette Action Center reports that production has stabilized with two shifts producing an average of 186 cars per day, which is an increase from where it was just a month prior. Due to this, the production start date of the 2021 Corvette is being moved up a lot sooner.

An update of the production was released Thursday of last week (Nov, 6) with General Motors (GM) saying that the making of the 2021 Chevrolet Corvette is now set to start December 8, which is about a month earlier than it was expected that it would begin. It’s plausible that GM might still produce the 2020 and 2021 models at the same time as the automaker is attempting to hit its original 20,000-unit production target for the model year, but this could only happen if the orders prove to be outstanding. In fact, last month, GM took down its configurator for the 2020 Corvette and put up one for the preference of the 2021 Corvette.

The shift from the Corvette production in 2020 to 2021 should be one that is far less stressful, especially since only minute changes have been introduced. On top of this, two new exterior colors have been added as well as new stripe options. There is also a new color scheme in the interior, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and magnetorheological dampers as a standalone option.

To sum up what that means for customers, those who made their purchase for the 2021 Corvette C8 could possibly get their cars sooner rather than later, and in some instances, it could be their new Christmas present…from themselves.  If you ask us, there’s nothing like a new sporty muscle car that indicates a sign that things are looking brighter for the new year.

Cool Features To Look Out For

  • Highly advanced technologies like wireless phone charging, NFC (Near Field Communication), backing for over-the-air updates and a 1080p Performance Data Recorder.
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now standard.
  • A new Chevrolet’s Infotainment 3 Plus system, with an 8.0-inch touchscreen and Bluetooth audio streaming, as well as a 4G LTE mobile hotspot.
  • A Magnetic Ride Control 4.0 suspension system for aiding driving with potholes or slanted driveways.
  • An all-new Full-Length Dual Racing Stripe is available for sprucing up the cosmetics. Specifically comes with blue, orange, red, or yellow stripes. Also has a new gray and yellow color arrangement involved in the options.

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

Our dealership has a wide range of vehicles from the Chevrolet company, and will soon include the mighty 2021 Chevrolet Corvette. Those who are interested in this vehicle can call our sales department or simply chat with an online representative for further information. Feel free to also check out other great models at Miami Lakes Chevrolet, such as the Silverado or Tahoe, until you find something that suits you best!

2020 has been an interesting year in the automotive industry. We’ve seen disruptions due to COVID-19, resulting in some production delays across the entire landscape of auto manufacturers. The difference between Chevrolet and the other brands is how fast are customers returning to purchase a brand’s vehicles. The Chevy brand has actually posted higher percentages with the Silverado HD posting a 9.1 percent increase in the third quarter over the second quarter of 2020. The Chevrolet Blazer also increased up a massive 45.2 percent along with the Chevrolet Corvette gaining 33.3 percent, and the Chevrolet Spark that went up 26.6. The compact Chevrolet Sonic sedan went up 102.4 percent over its results from the previous quarter. 

Chevrolet Brings Back the Realtree Edition

Chevrolet has just announced a new Realtree Edition that is back for the first time in five years. This Realtree-themed pickup is made for the outdoors and carries the off-road perks of the Trail Boss trim. The powertrain is solid with its 355 horsepower effort from the 5.3-Liter V8 paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. There is also an optional 6.2-Liter V8 that is tied to the 10-speed transmission that equals 420 horsepower for owners to embrace. The apparel of driving a new Chevrolet Silverado is found in its off-road capabilities for this special edition trim.

The perks of the Silverado Realtree Edition adds a suspension lift of two inches and the added Z71 package’s Rancho off-road-tuned shocks, added skid plates, automatic locking rear differential, and hill-descent control. Wrapped with mud-terrain tires on 20-inch wheels, we think this pickup is the bee’s knees for any driver that wants a secure off-road experience in a stylish and modern cabin experience.

More On the Appearance of the Silverado

Overall, the 2021 Silverado is as gorgeous as it has ever been. The exterior perks of the Realtree Edition include cues from the outdoorsy theme with camouflage-pattern “Timber” decals, also located on the sides of the bed and on the hood as well. The bed has a liner that includes the Realtree logo. The exterior includes black badging, black exhaust tips, and side steps. The interior carries further camouflage patterns across the door panels. The 2021 Silverado has a starting price of $28,600 MSRP (Plus destination fee), which is way lower than the 2021 Ford F-150 and 2021 Toyota Tundra.

Chevrolet Will Present The Electric Chevy K5 Blazer Concept At SEMA360

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevrolet Miami, Chevy, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Monday, November 2nd, 2020 at 5:03 PM

 

SEMA360 is an event that centers on manufacturer/attendee/media relationships, new product introductions, project vehicle debuts, industry-leading education, and unparalleled networking opportunities. For this year’s function, the Chevrolet company will present a 1977 version of their K5 Blazer converted into a fully-electric concept.

During the virtual showcase, Chevrolet Performance, an automotive performance parts brand, will sound out SEMA members receptive to building their own electric projects to aid in concluding Chevrolet’s original eCrate offering.

“As GM introduces a new fleet of electric vehicles, it creates an exciting opportunity to bring EV technology to the aftermarket,” said Jim Campbell, GM U.S. vice president of Performance and Motorsports. “Our vision is to offer a comprehensive line of Connect and Cruise systems from Chevrolet Performance – delivering a solution for every customer ranging from LSX V-8s to eCrate conversions.”

Constructing The K5 Blazer-E

The American automaker first introduced the eCrate conversion concept with the Chevrolet eCOPO Camaro in 2018, with the 2019 Chevrolet E-10 following soon afterward. Based on the findings from those vehicles, they informed Chevrolet’s Electric Connect and Cruise strategy.

The revamped K5 Blazer-E maintains a lot of elements from the original Blazer, and just about 90 percent of the new parts fixed in the eCrate package are factory materials from the brand’s Bolt EV car.

The transformation of the 1977 K5 SUV started with the team removing the original 175-horsepower V-8 engine, as well as the three-speed automatic transmission, fuel system, and exhaust. Next, the crew built a special Bolt EV electric motor, bringing up the horsepower to 200 with 266 lb-ft of torque, also tacking on a Chevrolet Performance electronically controlled four-speed automatic transmission. The rest of the Blazer’s drivetrain remains unchanged, inclusive of the transfer case, driveshaft, and axles.

Power comes strictly from a 400-volt Bolt EV battery pack with 60 kilowatt-hours of workable energy fixed in the cargo area. Making use of production controllers and wiring harnesses conserves a lot of features of the Bolt, counting shock protection, battery heating and cooling, battery-overcharge protection as well as regenerative braking.

The components of the aftermarket encompass an electric power steering kit, an electric pump supplying vacuum to the stock brake system, and an electronic controller to drive inputs to the 1977 Blazer gauges like showing the battery’s state of charge on the originating fuel gauge.

eCrate Installer Certification Program

With the intention of making preparations for eCrate’s inauguration, Chevrolet Performance is certifying Electric Connect and Cruise installers. Chevrolet dealers that are partaking in the event will get the training, tools and equipment that is necessary to utilize the high-voltage systems and charging stations to be of service to vehicles of Chevrolet buyers.

In Brighton, Michigan, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering will be the first company to direct the training and certification program. This venture will help to clue in the certification process for upcoming installers.

It is expected that the 60-kWh Electric Connect and Cruise package will be readily available in the second half of next year, and will include:

  • 60-kWh battery pack
  • 200-horsepower electric motor
  • DC-to-AC power inverter to drive the electric motor
  • DC-to-DC power converter to power low-voltage systems
  • Wiring harnesses, controllers and water pumps for battery heating and cooling

Additionally, Chevrolet Performance will determine extra eCrate packages with options that have a higher performance as well as new battery configurations to suit a broader range of aftermarket applications. Long term, the crew will attempt to merge General Motors’ modular Ultium battery system technologies.

“Minutes after Chevrolet showed the E-10 concept, customers started calling to ask how soon they could build their EV project,” said Russ O’Blenes, Chevrolet director of engineering, Performance and Racing. “The K5 Blazer-E demonstrates what is possible for customers who want to convert their vintage truck to a daily driver with the instant torque and unique driving experience of an EV. For customers who want more extreme performance, the modular eCrate system will have virtually limitless applications.”

Miami Lakes Automall

If you’re looking for something that is a bit more current in style than the K5 Concept, Miami Lakes Automall currently has an extensive range of 2019 Chevrolet Blazer’s as well as the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe (the replacement of the original K5 Blazer in 1995).

The Chevrolet Camaro Is Surging In Popularity Again

Chevrolet is rolling out some new Camaro muscle cars that are going to take over the scene. After over 54 years of producing the popular Camaro, we have learned some news about the next version of Chevrolet’s American muscle car. General Motors has continued its rivalry with the Ford Mustang that goes on to this day. The first Camaro that debuted in 1966 sold 285,748 vehicles and the love for customers enjoying a ride in a muscle car continues despite the growth of crossovers and SUVs. Chevrolet has added two new body colors for the 2021 model year with the Wild Cherry tint coat and the Red Hot color, a part of the Garnet Red option. These are appearance packages that carry a deep red hue and will cost an additional $495 for owners. 

More On the New Camaro Appearance Package

The specific color code is GSK and the touch-up paint code is WA-252F. These colors will join Jet Black, Medium Ash Gray, Kalahari, Adrenaline Red, Ceramic White, and Jet Black w/ Red Accents. There are certain color options that will not pair together as the Wild Cherry color can not be paired with blue convertible tops. The 2021 model year is being produced at the General Motors Lansing Grand River plant. The assembling and shipping for the Camaro have begun after the COVID-19 outbreak slowed production down. But Chevrolet has started to move out its products including the 2020 Corvette along with the Camaro.  In fact, sales have increased for the Camaro recently. 

The Chevrolet Camaro Is Only Going Up!

Not long ago the Chevrolet brand added a new Z/28 to the Camaro trim list. The latest redesign for the Camaro is expected to come within the next couple of years. The goal of GM and its companies like Chevy is to focus on EVs and new electric vehicle batteries. GM is trying to work on lowering the price for the Camaro to generate more sales for the final quarter. The “Caliente” wheels that come in a two-tone grey-and-silver finish are 20 inches in diameter are going to be $295 less. Keep in mind that the Chevrolet Camaro has seen an increase in sales just last month. The Camaro rose 8 percent in September 2020 and we expect the Camaro to grow in sales over the holidays.

The 2022 Chevy Bolt Might Be The More Sleek and Sexier Younger Sister

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealer in Miami, Chevrolet Dealer Miami, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealers in Miami, Chevrolet dealers Miami, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevrolet Miami, Chevy, Chevy Bolt, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, Chevy Miami, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Monday, October 26th, 2020 at 3:47 PM

 

Spy Shots Of The 2022 Chevy Bolt and EUV

The Chevrolet company is in the process of acquiring an extensive number of brand new electric vehicles after development. In particular, one is a meticulously refashioned version of the Bolt, which will be allied with an SUV variant called the Bolt EUV. For the most part, the herculean model will be rebadged and serve as a comparable form of a Buick Velite, which is currently being sold in China. Meanwhile, the miniature Bolt will be the main successor of the original 2016 Bolt model. Recently, car blogs like Motor1 were able to sneak some spy shots of the upcoming environmentally-conscious car.

Photos taken from the Australian car site, CarExpert, show a prototype version of the Bolt resting in a near desolate parking lot. According to Motor 1, this particular shot, as well as other succeeding shots that were shown on their site were taken by journalist Derek Fung.

Hinged upon what has been revealed by the company thus far, the sustainable hatchback appears to have a sleeker look than the current Bolt. At this point, one shouldn’t make vast assumptions, but it looks like the front end might have gained much inspiration from the latest Blazer, which also appears to encompass split headlights. The car’s masquerade layer still hides the front fascia,  however, we do notice that two rows of lights are hiding underneath.

It is not yet known what changes will be made in the Bolt’s cabin, but we do know that the present generation of the model is charged by an electric motor producing 201 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. Between two changes, the range has an EPA rating of 258 miles (416 kilometers).

For comparison purposes, it’s worth noting that the Chinese Buick Velite is a bit lackluster to the current Bolt, as it only has 174 horsepower. 

By sometime next year, we should expect to hear more information about the Bolt’s dramatic entrance. It is expected that its debut will be around the second half of 2021, and will also hit dealerships by late next year or early 2022.

More Details About The Bolt

  • Both the Bolt EV and EUV will remain on General Motor’s BEV2 platform, therefore, they will keep the same battery and charging equipment rather than the brand’s new Ultium batteries. 
  • Some known updates in the interior include a more upscale design, as well as, improvements regarding seating, the infotainment system, and the push-button gear selector.
  • The EUV will have a few available upgrades such as a sunroof and the cornerstone Super Cruise, which is a high-tech control system that allows drivers to take his or her hands off the wheel on the freeway and so far, this has only been available in Cadillacs.

Miami Lakes Automall

If you just can’t wait for the upcoming Bolt model, don’t fret! You can enjoy an incredibly low price of under just $30,000, (plus destination fee) for the 2020 Bolt EV LT at Miami Lakes Chevrolet. If you are interested in this vehicle or other models in our possession, please take a look at our new online car inventory and chat with an online representative for more assistance.

Expect Chevrolet to produce the latest Corvette lineup normally now that their plants are back and running like normal. The factory responsible for making the Chevrolet Corvette is producing 800-850 cars a week. While normally at this point in time they would be producing the next model year (in this case, the 2021 model year), Chevrolet is still producing the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette. The Corvette entered its production phase for the 2020 model year with a slow start to the production run. Then COVID-19 hit and the setback took away months of valuable time to create and offer the vehicle. However, now Chevrolet is back to offer its first-ever mid-engine Corvette. 

What A Year It Has Been For the 2020 Corvette

After overcoming a United Automobiles Workers (UAW) strike, the perils of COVID-19, we’ve learned the 2020 Corvette is being made safely at the Bowling Green, Kentucky Chevrolet plant. The production of the 2020 model year will last through this year with the following 2021 Corvette to begin early in 2021. The shutdown did allow time for suppliers to create a surplus before Chevrolet started the Corvette production again. Keep in mind, prior to the pandemic, Chevrolet had actually started a second shift to help meet the demands for the beloved Chevy sports car. There are rumors about what the production lineup will look like for 2022 and 2023, but as far as the present and the immediate future, Chevrolet is going to complete what it started with the all-new generation Corvette. The “C8” will have its run finished and the new 2021 Corvette will have to wait its turn. 

What Comes After the 2020 Corvette Production Run?

Chevrolet has revealed what to expect with the 2021 Corvette, including two new body colors including Red Mist Tintcoat and Silver Flare, but let us also remind our readers about all the perks awaiting them if should opt for the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette. Enjoy the perks that come with a remarkable 6.2-Liter V8 engine and a remarkable quarter-mile speed of under 12 seconds! Come take a ride at Miami Lakes Automall. We’re poured to offer the brand new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette in all its glory. Come see about buying or leasing a new vehicle with our help. Interested in going with a pre-owned vehicle?

Customers today appreciate a good, solid workhorse pickup today more than at any point in time. The fastest-growing segment in the automotive industry belongs to the pickup truck market and the competition is fierce. Chevrolet has plans to win over more customers with its impressive power and strength for the upcoming 2021 model year. It’s already been a great year for the Silverado and even more good news is coming. The new 2021 Chevrolet Silverado HD boasts the power of unmatched performance thanks to its 36,000-pound maximum towing rating. That remarkable rating was a major goal for the Chevy brand and we have more details as to all the improvements customers can expect for the forthcoming Silverado HD.

Stronger Than the Competition

No other pickup on the market can match this full-size pickup’s sheer towing ability. Up 500 more pounds of towing capabilities from the previous year, Chevrolet and General Motors have worked on offering a standout, clear cut choice for customers. The 2021 Silverado 3500 HD is that vehicle that will push the envelope as Chevy hopes to inspire more customer confidence that in the brand. To make towing easier than ever, the Silverado HD carries a new towing-assistance system that will provide eight cameras that offer as many as 15 different unique views for drivers to monitor to ensure a precise experience. 

More Perks of the 2021 Silverado HD

The price of the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD is $35,900 MSRP (Plus destination fee). Owners will be able to embrace its 6.6-Liter V8 engine or the diesel variation of the same powertrain. Customers can keep in mind the Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD has better towing ratings than the Ram 3500 HD and Ford F-350 Super Duty. Options customers can enjoy the choices between a regular cab, double cab, and crew cab. The wheel sizes range from 17 inches up to 20 inches.

2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer Review: It May Be Small But It’s Not Short

The 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer is the latest entry for the brand currently known for making compact SUVs and trucks as a specialty. In previous model years, the car was promoted as a midsize SUV, but recently, it seems to have been making a transition to a compact of sorts. This intention is further emphasized with more design elements and distinct curved lines.

Other cool highlighting features include its generous amount of room for the rear and cargo area, the distinct Activ and RS trim levels, and exciting technologies.

Interior and Technology

The newest Trailblazer’s interior styling is comparable to other crossovers from the brand, with one familiar feature being its black plastic switchgear. The Activ trim also adds some charming touches such as a near cloth design on the front doors and dash trim with a brown coating, meanwhile, the RS model receives a leather steering wheel with a flat-bottom and red interior accents. An 8-way power driver seat is available, it makes it possible for a more movement, long-range, which taller drivers will appreciate.

The cabin has a wide range of nifty technological features like a standard 7-inch infotainment touchscreen and an available 8-inch version. Both touchscreens have wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. With wireless capability, users will enjoy the phone charging pad, as it allows them to store their phones in a cubby near the shifter. The company also offers its rearview camera mirror as an option.

Engine and Performance

Trailblazing shoppers are offered two different engine options involving three-cylinder turbochargers. The base model has a 1.2-liter engine and provides 137 horsepower with 162 lb-ft of torque. It also includes front-wheel-drive and a continuously variable transmission.

The upgraded engine pushes out 155 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque. Again, front-wheel-drive and the continuously variable transmission is standard but there is an available all-wheel-drive system that teams up with a 9-speed automatic.

The overall drive is stable and the comfort-tuned dampers help in enhancing the overall ride. It fairs pretty well on both the main road and dirt roads, and if that ability serves as a priority for a buyer, then it’s recommended that they opt for the Activ trim. 

Cargo space has a lavish 25.3 cubic feet behind the rear seats and 54.4 cubic feet when the seats in the second-row are down. The passenger seats also fold flat for items that are extra long. Overall, the 2021 Trailblazer’s cargo room is significantly better than its competitors.

Safety Equipment and Crash Ratings

In a lot of ways, the Trailblazer is more of a family car than it is an off-road vehicle, especially with its impressive list of driver assistance features such as the highlighting Chevy Safety Assist, which includes forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, lane-keep assist, a distance indicator, automatic high beams, and a rear-seat reminder. More features like adaptive cruise control, blind-spot and rear cross-traffic warning, and rear parking sensors can be added on.

The reliability of the Chevy’s new almost compact was proven by its ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The Trailblazer received a four-star crash test rating and five stars for side crash tests. The truck also received four stars in front of front crash and rollover tests.

Trim Prices and Features

The base L trim has a starting price of $19,995, (plus destination fee) and comes with 16-inch steel wheels, halogen headlights/taillights, a manual liftgate, manual cloth seats, a 7-inch infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a four-speaker audio system.

The most affordable all-wheel-drive model comes in at $24,595, (plus destination fee), tacking on the more advanced 1.3-liter engine, nine-speed automatic, 17-inch aluminum wheels, carpeted floor mats, six-speaker audio system and the flat-folding passenger seat.

The Activ all-wheel-drive model is priced at $25,995 and includes an off-road appearance package (including a skid plate), leather-wrapped interior bits and a bunch of interior prizes like heated power seats and the upgraded eight-inch infotainment system. At the same time, the RS all-wheel-drive is priced the same but does away with the off-road features.

Where To Buy The 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer?

Chevrolet Shows Us That It’s Time To Charge Forward In The Bolt EV’s New Teaser Trailer

By melanie s | Posted in Uncategorized on Tuesday, October 6th, 2020 at 5:19 PM

 

The most recent 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV is in its fourth model year for its particular segment, behind the upcoming 2021 Bolt EV scheduled to be released for 2021, at a later date. At the present time, Chevrolet is busy promoting the fully-electric hatchback in their latest advertisement video titled “It’s Time To Charge Forward.”

In the 85-second video, the viewer can see the Bolt EV flaunting a few of its features such as charging the car battery at home and on the go, EPA estimated distance per charge (259 miles), regenerative braking, driving stats, onboard Wi-Fi, cargo room, app technologies, and acceleration specs.

By the end of the video, it’s clear just what Chevrolet wants us to know, that “Our Future Is Electric.” Likewise, GM Authority has previously made their message known several times of their push for transitioning into more electrified vehicles. In fact, the company is planning to introduce 20 new electric models by 2023. This encompasses the upcoming Chevy Bolt EUV, a.k.a “Electric Utility Vehicle”, that is in the same family tree as the regular Bolt EV in the realm of mechanics. However, with the compact five-door crossover SUV type of body style, it offers better functionality and more family-friendly space. Towards the end of the small flick, it shows a near-silhouette profile teaser image of the 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV.

 

 

In terms of the engine, Chevy’s SUV spin-off will be powered by the same BEV2 (second-generation Battery Electric Vehicle architecture) as the first-generation model for the Bolt EV.

Other nifty updates to look forward to on the EUV include a reworked interior that has been rumored to look posher rather than plastic and…basic. The automaker also wants to address numerous concerns about the current Bolt, like improving the seats, having an infotainment system that is more state-of-the-art, and including a push-button gear selector.

Regarding the newest member of the Chevrolet hatchback family, it has a more advanced powertrain for its 2021 model, by having an additional 21 miles for range for the maximum estimated 259 miles between plug-ins.

One thing that is certain, is that we can expect a great deal of content coming from General Motors EV sooner rather than later, but in the meantime…Miami Lakes Automall has an extensive and diverse list of Chevrolet vehicles ranging from a variety of different price ranges, trims, and styles. 

For those who are specifically interested in the new Bolt model, please remember that it’s not even set to release until the summer of next year but for now, shoppers can enjoy an incredibly low price of about just $40,000, (plus destination fee) for the 2020 Bolt EV Premier. It also includes features like heated front and rear seats, heated steering wheel, blind-spot monitoring, and the slick Rear Camera Mirror. It also comes with a leather-wrapped steering wheel, fancier wheels, and roof-mounted side rails.

If you are interested in this vehicle or other models in our possession, please take a look at our new online car inventory and chat with a representative for further assistance at Miami Lakes Automall.

Chevrolet Earns Three Nominations For the 2021 North American Utility of the Year Award

The 2021 North American Car, Utility and Truck of the Year (NACTOY) Awards have announced the 27 semifinalists including the massively popular 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer, the revamped Chevrolet Tahoe, and the iconic Chevrolet Suburban. These are just three of the choices among the 27, but all can earn the Utility of the Year award. The awards first began in 1994 and represents a way for automotive manufacturers to celebrate the most popular vehicles each year. The criteria to win requires offering a standout performance in innovation, design, safety, performance driver satisfaction, value, and technology. Last year, Chevrolet was awarded the Car of the Year award for the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. The Chevrolet brand has also won for the 2018 Chevrolet Bolt for Car of the Year as well. This year’s show has been pushed back, however, but the details have been revealed as to when it will go on, roughly a year from now.

2021 NAIAS Show Moved Back

A jury of 50 independent journalists has lowered the finalists count and each vehicle will be fully vetted in the coming months ahead. The announcement of the winners will take place at the 2021 North American International Auto Show that has been pushed back till September 28th through October 9th, 2021. The event will take place in Detroit, Michigan. This is not the only auto show event that has been pushed back due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The Los Angeles Auto Show has been pushed back to May 2021 and the New York International Auto Show has moved to April 2021. This means there will be a massive 33-month gap between the last auto show that was held back in January 2019. The NAIAS will continue at the TCF Center for the next three years and keep its later date. 

Changing of the Guard

The landscape of the automotive industry has changed in favor of SUV growth. According to IHS Markit, a company that offers critical research and information for various companies, the growth of SUVs accounts for 47.4% of U.S. sales last year. While that number was quite high in 2019, the figure could be even higher in 2020. Sedans saw a fall down to as low as 22%, unfortunately for customers who embrace driving a car. The 2021 NACTOY award nominees for the sedans this year only include some of the sleekest and stylish car options. 

“The breadth of choices in the SUV category from style to powertrain is really impressive,” said NACTOY Secretary Gary Vasilash, an industry veteran who is editor-in-chief of AutoBeat.

Look Out For More Innovation

Of course, Chevrolet is looking forward to improving its own lineup of SUVs. The crop of the newest Chevrolet SUV lineup carries the newest infotainment and safety technology that helped earned this nomination. Chevy is wise to invest more high-tech and push ahead to new EV technology. The state of California has announced the prohibition of any new, gas-powered cars in just over 14 years from now. By 2035, the landscape of vehicles will look quite different. Drivers looking for a smart pick to drive will take a closer look at the current new Chevrolet inventory here at Miami Lakes Automall.

High Hopes For Release Of The 2021 Chevrolet Equinox As It Approaches China

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevrolet Miami, Chevy, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy Dealership, Chevy Equinox in Miami, Chevy Miami, Chevys Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Friday, September 25th, 2020 at 3:22 PM

 

2021 Chevrolet Equinox

It’s only been a few weeks since the big premiere of the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox in China, and now, General Motors plans on releasing this crossover compact SUV over there and thus making them the first market in the world to receive the third-generation of this car’s update during the mid-cycle. In totality, there are 22 augmented features to better the competitiveness of the Equinox in the Chinese market.

As a result, not only does China’s refreshed Chevrolet truck welcome the automaker’s newest crossover form of design with its latest front fascia, but it also comes with sensational new powertrain features, more options for connectivity, and a supreme suite of active safety technologies. Moreover, it includes the RS trim level as a top-ranking variant for its range, which is the same case for the Chevrolet Blazer and Trailerblazer in the company’s local utility vehicle repertoire.

“Today’s midsize SUV buyers want a vehicle that meets all of their needs. The new Equinox delivers, starting with its new design, powertrain combination, locally tuned chassis and RS editions,” said General Director of Chevrolet for SAIC-GM, Scott Lawson, in a press release. He then continued, “It is joining the Blazer, Tracker and Trailblazer in Chevrolet’s crossover family, giving the brand a presence across the small, compact, midsize and mid-large mainstream segments to meet the different needs of buyers nationwide.” 

The updated 2021 Equinox launched in the Asain country came with a sum of six different variants, also inclusive of three that are comparable to the LT trim level as well as three in the new RS model. All of these trims include an extensive list of standard equipment, not to mention the brand’s latest infotainment system with developed connectivity as well as an array of progressive driving aid systems. A base trim level is expected to be added at a later date.

From its launch, two powertrain options will be offered for the new car. The first is a turbocharged 1.5L LFV I-4 engine that makes out 166 horsepower with 184 pound-feet of torque, it also paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, meanwhile, the RS model features a turbocharged 2.0L LSY I-4 that powers up to 233 horsepower with 256 pound-feet of torque, joined with the brand’s nine-speed automatic transmission.

The latest-generation of Equinox will make its first public introduction in China at the 2020 Beijing Motor Show, which will take place from September 26th to October 5th, and is set to go on sale a few days later. The Equinox is the company’s top-selling utility vehicle globally, scoring more than 3.8 million units in deliveries since its first appearance in 2004. This mid-cycle update strives to better its sales performance in China, where it has only been available for the past three years. 

With the release of the 2021 Equinox overseas, were hoping that it won’t be a long wait for North America to get a taste of that # SUVlife.

  • 2021 Equinox Territory: 169,900 CNY (about $24,880 USD at the current exchange rate)
  • 2021 Equinox World Edition: 184,900 CNY ($27,080 USD)
  • 2021 Equinox Tech Edition: 194,900 CNY ($28,550 USD)
  • 2021 Equinox RS: 219,900 CNY ($32,205 USD)
  • 2021 Equinox RS Smart Edition: 229,900 CNY ($33,670 USD)
  • 2021 Equinox RS Guard Edition: 239,900 CNY ($35,135 USD)

Chevrolet Silverado Introduces New Technology For 2021 Model Year

Owners will have more versatility than ever before using the configurable tailgate can be lowered down in three different places. With the quick hit on the key fob or on the tailgate buttons, the truck bed drops down like a regular tailgate, with another push the bed can have a cutout in the middle, or retract, as well as expand the bed length to serve as a bed stop. The configuration allows for the entire midsection to be lowered down. There’s a setup that allows two-step access over the bed. 

A new crop of pickups has added some functionality to the truck bed, but not quite like the Chevrolet Silverado provides. For instance, the 2021 Ram 1500 will offer a split tailgate, however, there are half as many customizable options. The 2021 Ford F-150 will provide an available tailgate (that costs extra) and it also doesn’t have as many configurations as well.  

Enjoy the 2021 Silverado Pickup 

The 2021 Silverado has received some strength in its towing capacity even with the smaller engines. The 2.7-Liter turbo-4 in rear-wheel drive raises its tow rating 2,500 pounds to 9,300 pounds with the crew cab and the short 5-foot-8 bed. A regular cab with a long bed has a towing capacity of 9,600 pounds. The cooling performance surpassed expectations, allowing it to tow more, Chevy has claimed. The 3.0-Liter turbodiesel inline-6 now has gained a boost in towing capacity of up to 9,500 pounds in rear-wheel-drive models. The towing increase comes from a rear axle that was more durable than expected, Chevy explained. 

Like the 3.0-Liter turbodiesel in the 2021 Sierra, the 2021 Silverado turbo diesel is going to see a lower price of about $1,500 less than the previous year. Chevrolet touts its diesel engine as the most fuel-efficient engine with an estimated maximum highway range of 668 miles with best-in-class 23 city mpg and 33 highway mpg for all 2WD models. The 3.0-Liter inline-six powertrain gives owners 460 lb-ft of torque with 277 horsepower. 

Upgraded Technology Is Very Apparent 

To make life easier on those owners who will use the advanced trailering technology, an available feature provides a camera system that can display vehicles in the blind spots of the trailer. Owners can trigger a jack-knife alert as well. The camera system has an option that displays guidelines and open visibility when reversing a trailer into place. A cargo bed zoom helps owners ease onto a gooseneck hitch or fifth-wheel hitch. Driver assistance features can be added to base trims, and other features are available. 

The standard perks of the 2021 Silverado 1500 include wireless smartphone connectivity come for all mid-grade trims and above. The 2021 Silverado goes on sale this fall. There are also features that are offered for midrange trims that extend the luxurious features that come standard for the higher trims. Some of those features include wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The future of Silverado will gain more features for the 2022 model year, but there are many days ahead before that one comes. To get a closer look at the wonderful Silverado 1500 pickup, we are ready to help our customers drive one today.

The Chevrolet Trailblazer has grown a massive following according to the manufacturer. The sales increase for the Trailblazer has increased by an unreal 183% from this time last year to now. This is true not just for the sales in the United States, but elsewhere in Canada and Mexico. The Trailblazer is built in Mexico and currently only has a 28-day supply left. The normal amount is around 60-days for most manufacturers. While we knew about the Chevy Trailblazer becoming a hot vehicle, we’re impressed it has sustained its growth. What has helped make the sales leap so much inside of a year? Let’s break down how the success has happened for the Chevrolet SUV.

What Has Helped the Growth of the Trailblazer?

Certainly, when Chevrolet brought back the Trailblazer in 2016, no one would have expected this growth. Word of mouth and solid reviews are helping to pave the way. Perhaps, drivers enjoyed the perks offered by the Chevrolet SUV. Owners can opt for all-wheel-drive and hold up to five passengers. 54.4 cubic feet of space is available for owners, a decent amount for a mid-size SUV. Want to know what buyers can expect for the trims offered by Chevrolet? Allow us to reveal the various standard highlights and differences across the spectrum of choices.   

Perks of Each Trim Level

Chevrolet has made the trim levels simple to understand for buyers. The five trims are L, LS, LT, Activ, and the RS. Owners can enjoy upgraded features that help the Trailblazer hold its own in the competitive SUV segment. The Trailblazer supplies Chevrolet’s Infotainment 3 system that offers a standard 7-inch diagonal color touchscreen, Bluetooth audio streaming for two active devices, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities. The perks of the newest safety enhancements come with standard Front Pedestrian Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert, and Automatic Emergency Braking. Available options like the improvement 6-speaker audio system and fold-flat front passenger seatbacks and 17-inch aluminum wheels are offered for the LS trim and the LT comes with standard heated power-adjustable mirrors and a remote vehicle starter system. 

The two highlights of the Trailblazer are found in the Activ and RS trim. The ECOTEC and RS both supply the 1.3-Liter three-cylinder turbocharged engine that creates 155 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque. This powertrain offers improved fuel efficiency with its Variable Valve Timing (VVT) ability. The Active supplies LED taillamps and sport terrain tires, while the RS adds the 18-inch high-gloss black machined wheels and dual-outlet exhaust with round polished tips. 

Pricing For the 2021 Trailblazer

The difference between the L versus the high-end RS is only $6,500. The L trim begins at $19,000 MSRP (Plus destination fee), the LS starts at $21,600 MSRP (Plus destination fee) and the LT can be had for $23,700 MSRP (Plus destination fee). The Activ trim begins at $25,500 (Plus destination fee) and the RS begins at $23,500 (Plus destination fee).

The Chevrolet Suburban Is Shaking Things Up For Its 2021 Model

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevy, Chevy dealers, Chevy Suburban on Thursday, September 17th, 2020 at 9:03 AM

 

The Major Suburban Enhancements For Next Year

The large and hefty Chevrolet Suburban SUV is getting a major makeover for 2021. The revamped model will include new gadgets and gizmos, especially when regarding safety features. It should also have a ride that is much smoother and have more space in its cabin. 

New renovation plans will also take into effect with the shorter Chevy Tahoe. In actuality, the Tahoe will have the most to gain from this face-lift, such as extra length and interior space in the interior. Though most buyers will find much joy in the Tahoe, those who have large families will still benefit the most with the Suburban, especially since it has three rows of seats and more cargo space. 

Although these upcoming Chevy SUV models will sport new designs, that’s only the surface of the changes that will be made. There will also be the implementation of an independent rear suspension, which is a first for this model. This will not just enhance the overall quality of the ride, but also aids in expanding interior space. Passengers will certainly be spoiled with entertainment features like large flat screens in the second row, meanwhile, the driver enjoys a great selection of driver-assistance features like rear cross-traffic alert and blind-spot alert on Premier models.

At one time, the Suburban was battling it out with the full-sized Travelall SUV of the (now-deceased) International Harvester automotive company, which was also considered to be a hybrid of a station wagon and a truck. However, as the brand drew back from the production of light-trucks, the model was discontinued in 1975, and for a while the Suburban got a chance to thrive all by itself in its segment. Eventually, Ford wanted a chance to get into the ring. 

By late of the 1990s, Ford introduced the Expedition model, and at some point hitched on Expedition Max, which is a foot longer than the regular Expedition. The Max model received its own beautification a few years ago, and this year will reintroduce the popular King Ranch trim. The main difference between Ford and Chevy are their engines. The Expedition makes use of an Ecoboost turbocharged V6, while the Suburban stays with the classics with its V8 engine. 

The Chevrolet Suburban performs well in sales for its segment, and will prove to be a great friend for large families and even those who prioritize vehicles with towing capability. Other highlighting features include its sport utilities, an upscale interior, Premier Edition, and Performance Package, as well as its long list of safety equipment.

Where To Get Chevrolet Suburban?

Miami Lakes Automall has a wide range of Chevrolet vehicles, including the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban for the lowest price around $57,000, (plus destination fee). 

Highlighting features on the LT trim include forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, wireless charging, as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Though the LT is more affordable, one should consider purchasing the High Country model as it includes even more features like the Universal Home Remote, Trailer Side Blind Zone Alert, and the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 Premium System!

There aren’t enough good new stories that have come out in 2020, but one recent story has shined some light on an impressive feat. Chevrolet has just produced its 1.75 millionth Corvette. The Corvette is now in its eighth-generation and the 1.75th millionth Corvette was raffled off by the National Corvette Museum. The perks of the 2020 Corvette can not be understated, the 2020 Corvette C8 is the first mid-engine Corvette and it was built to impress any buyer. This is why the raffle was a huge success for Corvette and the winner has just been announced.

The 1.75th Millionth Corvette Has Been Raffled

The raffle drew hundreds of hopefuls that wanted to win the prize. On September 4th, 2020, the winner, Don Creekmore from Wichita, Kansas took home the top prize. The drawing was streamed on social media. Don received a 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 Coupe that was finished in Arctic White paint with an Adrenaline Red interior and had never been driven before. The widely-popular Z51 Performance Package was included with its 3LT trim that offers the most Chevrolet has built for the Corvette. The color scheme of the Corvette is a throwback to the one-millionth Corvette that was produced in 1992. The 1.5 millionth Corvette was produced during the 2009 model year. The first Chevrolet Corvette ever made was created with a Polo White exterior and red interior. 

Anyone Else Ready To Win a Corvette?

As far as the future holds, the Chevrolet brand will see more raffles ahead taken care of by the National Corvette Museum. The Build Your Own 2021 Corvette Coupe will have a raffle slated for September 24th, 2020. The tickets are priced at $250 a pop, but another raffle is coming next month on October 15th, 2020 that will only cost $100 for a raffle ticket. The October raffle will be for a 2021 Corvette Coupe model as well with a Silver Flare finish. The National Corvette Museum is located in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Just across the street is the GM Bowling Green production facility that is the sole producer of the Chevrolet Corvette since 1981. 

Over 1,000 employees work at the production plant. The Cadillac XLR used to be made there as well, but now the sole focus is towards the Corvette. More lucky winners will be announced before the year is up to bring some delight and joy. To bring some excitement and joy into 2020, stop by Miami Lakes Automall to check our new Corvette collection.

Chevrolet Will Build Its Own Off-Road Champion Pickup By 2022

We have learned the Chevrolet brand is going to build its own off-road champion. The Chevy brand might be the last to the table for customers when offering a vehicle that rivals the Ford F-150 Raptor or the Ram Rebel TRX, but in a matter of time, customers will only care about which vehicle provides the most excitement for their money. The Chevrolet brand is going to ensure customers are fully satisfied with its pickup lineup. Allow us to inform and drive some interest in what to expect with the newest reports about what the Chevrolet brain trust has in store for customers. 

No One Builds High-Level Engineering Like Chevrolet

The Silverado light and heavy-duty variety are only missing one vehicle compared to other brands, but not for long. The introduction of the Silverado ZR2 will be a welcomed sight. We first saw a glimpse of what the Silverado ZR2 could look like when a Silverado race truck was shown off last year at the SEMA show in 2019. With many shoppers clamoring for a vehicle that pushes the boundaries of speed and power in a pickup, Chevrolet is looking for a vehicle that provides that in spades. The new rumors and reports leaking about this vehicle have us wondering what the final product will look like, but so far a lot has come out about what might happen between now and 2022.

What the Reports Say About the Silverado ZR2

The folks at Muscle Cars and Trucks have unnamed sources, but have revealed the plans that are launched for Chevrolet include a new ZR2 version of the Chevrolet Silverado is a plan that is underway. The performance of the off-road truck segment is most important and General Motors is going to ensure they offer buyers a vehicle unlike any of the products that competitors present. To build this vehicle, Chevrolet and General Motors are likely to keep everything underwraps for now. The focus will be less on the engine and horsepower, which is rumored to be kept with its existing 6.2-Liter naturally-aspirated L87 V8 engine. This is the powertrain that offers 420 horsepower, so it will not lack sufficient power or strength for owners.

Upgrades and Expected Launch Date

The enhancements will be added to protecting the engine and vehicle as a whole for off-road travel. The addition of skid plates and off-road tires are expected, but the “next evolution of the DSSV off-road damper” is something to look forward to. The Silverado ZR2 is going to arrive by 2022, according to the report. This would mean the Chevrolet Silverado ZR2 will be part of the 2023 model year. This is going to be a pickup that is like the larger version of the Chevrolet Colorado. Early mentions regarding the price for the pickup to be kept somewhat lower than $60,000 MSRP; far less expensive than the Ram Rebel TRX. Looking for new options from Chevy?

General Motors Gives Us An Electrifying Tease With The 2021 Chevy Bolt

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevrolet Dealership, Chevrolet Dealerships, Chevy, Chevy Bolt, Chevy dealers, Chevy Dealership on Friday, September 4th, 2020 at 9:29 AM

General Motors is allowing the public a sneak preview of its two new Chevy Bolt versions, which has been the brand’s big-ticket all-electric model since its release in 2017. A restyled and even larger Bolt EV were given initial announcements at GM’s “EV Day” by March of this year and are set to enter production in the summer of 2021.

The glimpse that we get of these vehicles is very minimal, which is understandable seeing how it was offered during the automaker’s recent virtual fleet solutions summit meeting. It displayed a silhouette of the upcoming Bolt, which then transformed into the Bolt EUV.

The remodeled Bolt has a look that is much sportier, as well as new seats, adaptive cruise control, and other minute changes. Moreover, the company pushed up the range in this year’s Bolt from 238 miles to 259, though no additional is expected in the new design.

The Bolt EUV will have a longer wheelbase than the regular Bolt EV and should be attractive to shoppers who prefer a more SUV type of style rather than a hatchback. In the video, the EUV looks longer than the EUV but doesn’t appear any taller. It seems as though this dynamic duo is perfect for appealing to buyers who have different lifestyles, as drivers who don’t have large families might prefer the simple Bolt EV model.

The pair will still remain on GM’s BEV2 platform, which is set apart from the new “Ultium” battery pack revealed during the company’s EV Day. The Cadillac Lyriq, which is the upcoming electric crossover as well as the electric GMC Hummer will be the first of GM’s latest models to be constructed on their new electric blueprinting. Similarly, the Bolt EV and EUV were originally set to go into production by the end of this year but were delayed until the following year due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

The automaker also confirmed the 2021 fraternal twins will be the first vehicles besides the Cadillac lineup to have Super Cruise. This system makes use of extremely calculated and precise 3D mapping data, GPS, and an assortment of sensors to keep the vehicle in its lane, meanwhile, facial recognition makes sure that the driver has his or her eyes on the road and is ready to take back control. Soon enough, it will also be able to change lanes by driver’s simply turning their signal and will able to tack on more functions once the software is readied and made available

Chevrolet Has Set Next-Gen Equinox For 2025

The plan for Chevrolet regarding its popular Chevy Equinox crossover has remained the same since it first debuted 15 years ago; to make shoppers fall in love with more space. Back in 2005, the debut model helped to usher in a new wave of car buyers to appreciate the convenience of a larger vehicle. Chevrolet helped lead the automotive trend towards larger and more spacious vehicles rather than cramped and aged car models. Now the Equinox has reached its third-generation, which came out a couple years ago for the 2018 model year. The word on the street is the fourth-generation will come out in 2025, after a refresh comes for this crossover. What can we expect?

Breaking Down the Changes Ahead

When Chevrolet introduces its fourth-generation Chevy Equinox, it will be produced on a new platform. By 2025, the vehicle will have been using its current platform for eight years. The next-generation will use the VSS-F vehicle platform, differing from the current model, which rides on the General Motors D2 platform. Chevrolet has used the VSS-F vehicle set as the backbone for numerous General Motors vehicles like the 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer, whereas the older GM D2 platform is currently used by other GM vehicles. 

But First, A Refresh For the Equinox

For customers that don’t want to wait till 2025, as we’re sure most readers wouldn’t want to either, the current-generation Chevrolet Equinox will gain new perks with a refresh set for the 2022 model year. The Equinox was originally due for a refresh for the 2021 model year, but unfortunately, those details were pushed back due to Coronavirus pandemic. As such, the refreshed Equinox will go on sale earlier than usual for a new vehicle when it comes out next year in 2021. New spy shots should break out this fall for what the vehicle will gain. 

General Motors had scheduled a number of styling upgrades to the Chevy Equinox for the 2021 refresh. We expect the changes to involve fixtures that offer new headlamps and tail lamps, a larger front grille, an revamped lower front fascia, new fog lamps, and a change to the length of the rear bumper. GM also brought the Equinox a new RS trim. This trim will offer a different appearance that carries its own front and rear fascia, new black badges and accents, 19-inch wheels with a dark finish, and quad exhaust tips. This trim will sit up high on the Equinox trim ladder as the RS will gain red contrast stitching and a matching RS shift knob. What else can we expect for the upcoming 2021 model year?

Improvements To the New 2021 Chevy Equinox

The earliest reports from GM Authority mentioned the 2021 Chevy Equinox will no longer carry the turbocharged 2.0-Liter I4 LTG engine option. For future buyers looking for a solid engine choice, the turbocharged 1.5 Liter I4 LYX the only powertrain available. Buyers opted to go with the 2.0-Liter engine for just seven percent of the total Equinox sales volume in 2019, which is intriguing because that engine gave 82 more horsepower and 57 more pound-feet of torque than the 1.5-Liter engine. The removal of the 2.0-Liter LTG comes after the discontinuation of the 1.6-Liter I4 LH7 turbodiesel with the 2020 Chevy Equinox model year. Of course, Chevrolet is looking forward to offering customers what they want most and improving the Equinox between now and 2025. Drivers looking for a smart pick to drive will take a closer look at the upcoming Chevrolet Equinox

Chevrolet Silverado Will Receive Refresh For 2022 Model Year

Everyone who loves the Chevrolet Silverado can attest to its strength and comfortable ride; that’s what has helped Chevy regain its spot as the second-best seller of pickups in 2020. For those that are keeping score, Chevrolet has only had one end of the year finish that didn’t see Chevrolet finish in the top two spots. (Ram just got lucky in 2019!) Well, the news for the upcoming 2022 Chevrolet Silverado shows major updates that will continue to shape the pickup towards what owners are hoping for. The latest spy shots show a similar Silverado that looks agile, but as powerful as ever. The changes can be spotted with a new tailgate and other updates. Let us break down the upcoming changes for the famed Silverado pickup truck.

Changes Coming To the 2022 Silverado

Cars.com gave high marks for the Silverado earlier this year, but we’re certain that 2021 will show the Chevrolet brand taking home even more recognition for its engineering. It could be thanks to the reshaping of the vehicle that includes an all-new fascia and a new two-tiered lighting setup that is found on the 2022 model year. The design of the exterior includes a new thin LED accent and daytime running lights at the top of the fascia, with the primary headlight element mounted slightly lower. The cab of the Silverado looks to be the same as the previous model year, but a new bed step might be added from its 2020 Silverado heavy-duty models

More On the Silverado Refresh

The latest spy photos do not show the interior, but we expect changes inside. The all-new fourth-generation Silverado came out in 2019, but its interior was lackluster compared to the competition for some buyers. The consumers will always be right and Chevrolet listened to its base to revamp the cockpit. GM Authority has said the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado will gain a revised center stack similar to the all-new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban have received. We will have to wait and see how the Silverado looks inside, but from what we are hearing, we are sure its going to appease the fans of the Chevy brand, as every great vehicle refresh does.

We want to welcome our shoppers back to our shop or help them buy online if they wish. We’re ready to assist our customers every day. Experience the difference at Miami Lakes Automall!
