By Justin | Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, June 22nd, 2022 at 5:18 PM

Chevrolet will be hosting an auction for an NFT (non-fungible token) of the all-new 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06. The winner of the auction will not only receive the NFT, but also a free 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06. This auction comes during an extremely volatile time for the NFT and cryptocurrency sphere. Despite this turbulent time, Chevy sees an opportunity to breach into a popular sector. By hosting an NFT auction, Chevrolet can market itself to a new audience while advertising its high-performance Corvette. The auction will be called the ‘Own the Color’ auction and it will take place between June 20th and June 24th, 2022. Bids for the NFT will only be accepted in Ethereum coins. We’ll take a closer look at the details and see what consumers can expect.  

Corvette NFT Will Come with Free 2023 Corvette Z06

Chevrolet will be hosting an auction for an NFT of the all-new 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06. Taking place between June 20th and June 24th, 2022, the auction will be called the ‘Own the Color’ auction. Bids for the NFT will only be accepted in Ethereum coins. The lucky winner will not only receive the NFT, but also a free 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06. Although cryptocurrency and NFTs have taken a recent hit due to extreme volatility, this auction is a good opportunity for Chevrolet to branch into a new space. About the auction, Chevrolet’s vice president of marketing Steve Majoros said,

“[The] Own the Color NFT is an important stepping stone for Chevrolet into future digital initiatives for our customers.”

The Corvette Z06 NFT will feature an exclusive Minted Green color. Along with the NFT, the winner will receive a Minted Green 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06. This Z06 will come equipped with the Z07 performance package as well as carbon fiber wheels. The performance package will increase the aerodynamics of the sports car by equipping it with spring and anti-roll bar rates. Paired with its 5.5L 670 horsepower V8 engine,  the Corvette Z06 will feature impressive performance and handling. In recognition of the auction, there’s also a signature plaque. Plus, for an even more futuristic feel, the VIN number will be in binary. 

Chevrolet’s NFT auction will take place on an NFT trading site called SuperRare. It will occur between June 20th and June 24th and bidders will be able to place their offers with Ethereum coins. Chevrolet will not be taking any of the proceeds, however. Instead, the automaker will donate the proceeds to an educational non-profit organization called DonorsChoose. For those interested in winning a 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06, here’s your chance.

4 Reasons to Consider The 2022 Chevy Camaro

By Justin | Posted in Uncategorized on Friday, June 10th, 2022 at 12:47 PM

As of late, Chevrolet has been busy updating its lineup with new improvements and more features. Iconic vehicles like the Chevy Corvette have received new powerful engines to help keep them ahead of the competition. Chevrolet has also been working on producing electric vehicles like the 2024 Chevy Equinox EV and 2023 Chevy Silverado EV. With so much going on, it’s a surprise that Chevy has still been able to keep up with some of its older vehicles. One such vehicle is the Chevy Camaro which is reportedly set to be replaced by an electric sedan. This coincides with General Motor’s goal to transition to an electric lineup by 2035, but if the Camaro is phased out, many fans will surely miss the sports car. As an affordable sports car, the Camaro has remained iconic with its great handling and high performance. As a sort of last hoo-rah, we’ll detail four reasons why the 2022 Chevy Camaro should be still considered despite the strong push toward EVs.

1. The 2022 Chevy Camaro Has Great Performance

The 2022 Chevy Camaro offers several engine choices. These include the base 2.0L turbocharged engine that’s capable of 275 horsepower and 295lb-ft torque. There’s also a 3.6L V6 engine capable of 335 horsepower and 284lb-ft of torque and a 6.2L supercharged V8 engine that’s capable of 650 horsepower and 650lb-ft of torque. These engines depend on the Camaro trim level, but all offer quick acceleration with 0-60 mph times of 3.5 seconds to 5.4 seconds. The Camaro also has a dual-exhaust option as well as magnetic ride control which provides unparalleled stability and responsiveness.

2. The 2022 Camaro Has a Noteworthy Interior

Looking inside the 2022 Chevy Camaro, owners will note a modern interior with quality materials. The front seats are comfortable and the Camaro features a host of driver-assist features. These include a head-up display that provides drivers with data such as mph, rpm, and fuel level. Drivers can also make use of a driver mode selector which features several modes like sport, snow/ice, tour, and track. There’s also a performance data recorder that lets drivers keep a record of their time if they take to a track. For its infotainment system, the Camaro has an 8-inch touchscreen that supports Chevrolet’s Infotainment 3 system. This system is intuitive and supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

3. The 2022 Camaro is Reliable

A third reason to consider the 2022 Camaro is its reliability. Chevrolet offers a powertrain warranty for five years or 60,000 miles as well as a limited warranty for three years or 36,000 miles. Aside from this, according to its reliability ratings, the Camaro has a score of 80 out of 100. For a high-performance sports car, that’s quite impressive as it means owners will save on trips to a mechanic.

4. The 2022 Chevy Camaro is Affordable

The fourth reason to consider the 2022 Chevy Camaro is its affordability. The high-performance sports car starts at an MSRP of $25,000 (plus destination fee). For a strong muscle car, this is a great price point given its capabilities. Those looking for more power and performance can opt for more expensive trims like the LT1 which has an MSRP of $34,000 (plus destination fee). From there, owners can go even higher in trims all the way to the ZL1 which starts at an MSRP of $63,000 (plus destination fee). For its power and performance, the 2022 Chevy Camaro is a great choice as a sports car that should still be considered in a wave of EVs.

The 2023 Chevy Bolt Takes The Cake As The Most Affordable 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 Bolt, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Miami, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Monday, June 6th, 2022 at 2:47 PM

The Affordable Chevy Bolt

The 2023 Chevrolet Bolt will soon serve as the most inexpensive electric vehicle that can be bought in North America.

Recently, the parent company, General Motors (GM) released pricing for the upcoming 2023 model. The entry-level 1LT and better-supplied 2LT models are going for $26,595* and $29,795* respectively, which the company says is a price reduction of $5,900 per model as opposed to last year.

The larger Bolt EUV will get an even bigger cut, (nominally speaking), with $6,300.

The price for the regular Bolt EV model signifies a considerable price cut of 18.5% from a year ago, during a time when everything from components to labor costs are seeing a considerable rise in the country.

GM is even saying that with this large price cut, no features have been taken out or cut out compared to the 2021 model.

“Nothing has been removed,” GM product specialist Shad Balch told the Detroit Free Press. “This reflects our ongoing desire to make sure Bolt EV/EUV is competitive in the marketplace. As we’ve said, affordability has always been a priority for these vehicles.”

Pricing

While pricing for 2023 has not been announced yet, the upcoming Nissan Leaf, which was the most affordable EV offered in the States, has a starting price of $27,400, (plus destination fee). If you’re not including the federal tax credit of $7,500 that Nissan still accounts for, but GM doesn’t, the 2023 Bolt EV is the more affordable car in the States.

Technically speaking, the Bolt EV is the cheapest electric model in America when it goes on sale next year, not considering the federal tax credit (bringing the Nissan Leaf down to a considerable $19,900). The troubling news for Nissan is that its cumulative total U.S. sales for the Lead model are close to 175,000 units, and when it reaches 200,000, the threshold for the federal tax credit will be cut in half.

Another disadvantage for the Nissan Leaf is that it only has 149 miles of range (according to the EPA), whilst the cheapest Bolt EV has a brand-estimated 259 miles. Buyers would need to upgrade to the Nissan Leaf S Plus in order to even reach 226 miles of EPA-rated range, but that model has a starting price of $32,400, (plus destination fee).

The main idea here is that the company is making many moves to bring an affordable, mass-market EV option with a suitable electric range to the average consumer who wants to transition to an electric model. This is part of the market with a slew of options, with the Nissan Leaf S Plus acting as its only competitor. Alternatively, Fisker (FSR) may seem promising for its electric Ocean EV, which will start below $40,000, (plus destination fee) when it makes its way sometime in 2023.

If the White House ends up hitting its goal for the U.S. to achieve its sales of fully electric cars by 2030, North American buyers will need several more affordable electrified options.

Chevrolet Teases All-New 2024 Chevy Equinox EV in New Trailer

By Justin | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, June 2nd, 2022 at 4:12 PM

Chevrolet recently released another trailer featuring the all-new, all-electric 2024 Chevy Equinox EV. The fully electric SUV was teased in the past, but not much information was provided. This time, the new trailer shows off the inside of the all-electric SUV. Like many other automakers, Chevrolet has been working on producing a lineup of EVs. The automaker has teased its all-electric 2024 Chevy Silverado EV which is slated to feature 400 miles of battery range. There have also been rumors of an electric sedan in the works. For now, we’ll take a look at the new 2024 Equinox EV and see what was highlighted in the new trailer.

A Sneak Peek Inside the All-New 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV

Chevrolet released a new trailer for its all-new 2024 Chevy Equinox EV. This new trailer provided consumers with an in-depth look at the interior of the electric SUV. Chevrolet had previously shown off the Equinox EV’s exterior with a short trailer video. In that clip, viewers saw narrow and slit-like headlights that flowed into the SUV’s grille bar. The front end and hood appeared soft and round and a charging port was seen on the driver’s side front fender. We also saw the smooth and flowy sides of the Equinox EV which wrapped around to the rear bumper. This latest video from Chevy gives us a preview of the inside of the electric SUV.

The new video from Chevrolet opens with a glowing Chevrolet logo atop a spinning Earth. There’s also a lunar eclipse occurring which alludes to the Chevy Equinox EV name. From here, we get a close-up shot of a circular HVAC vent which is located on either side of the SUV’s dashboard. Next, we get a view of the center console which features open storage space on the bottom. There’s also a cubby underneath the center stack. Along with this image, we’re shown ambient lighting on the passenger side of the dash and door panel which transitions from white to blue.

The final view of the Chevy Equinox EV is a wide-angle shot of the dashboard. Here we get a good sense of the interior design. The digital gauge cluster looks futuristic and the oval touchscreen appears to be massive. We also get a look at the steering wheel as well as what appears to be a column-mounted shifter. There are also USB-C ports in the center console along with two cup holders. This video may be short, but it does a good job of creating excitement for the all-new 2024 Chevy Equinox EV. According to Chevrolet, it’s set to arrive in the fall of 2023. We don’t have final pricing yet, but it’s rumored that the electric SUV will start at an MSRP of around $30,000.

2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 to Feature Impressive Top Speed

By Justin | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, May 26th, 2022 at 3:56 PM

The 2023 Chevrolet Corvette is set to release to the public soon. The high-performance luxury sports car has been revitalized for the new model year and will come equipped with a more powerful engine. While the 2022 Corvette was rated 10Best by Car and Driver and remains as popular as ever, Chevrolet has begun to phase out production of the 2022 sports car in favor of the 2023 model. This isn’t a bad thing as the 2023 Corvette will feature an improved engine as well as a new look. An options list has already been released, so fans can start to customize their preferred Corvette exactly how they want it. Specific details about the performance standards have yet to be released, but according to information from a leaked owner’s manual, the 2023 Corvette Z06 will have a top speed exceeding 200 mph. We’ll take a closer look at this metric and see what fans can expect from the new luxury sports car.

2023 Corvette Z06 Will Have High Top Speed

The 2023 Corvette Z06 will soon release to the public. Order books have opened and customers have been able to customize their Corvette the way they want with a new online visualizer tool. Chevrolet has allowed an assortment of colors as well as package options so customers can choose their desired sports car. Other option choices include the roof, wheels, and interior colors. While the 2023 Corvette Z06 is set to debut soon, only general information about the sports car’s performance standards has been released.

The 2023 Corvette Z06 is set to come equipped with a 5.5L naturally aspirated V8 engine that’s capable of 670 horsepower and 460lb-ft of torque. This engine will churn that out at 8,400 rpm and it will also be able to generate 734 pounds of downforce when equipped with front dive planes and a rear wing. Thanks to the new Magnetic Selective Ride Control feature, owners will also enjoy impressive handling even at high speeds.

According to a recent leak, many are speculating that the 2023 Corvette Z06 will have a top speed exceeding 200 mph. The information inside the owner’s manual was leaked detailing the correct shifting points based on the minimum and maximum speeds. It stated that 188 mph was the max speed at which a driver could downshift from sixth to fifth gear. Since 188 mph is the minimum downshifting point into fifth gear, it’s likely that the luxury sports car will be able to exceed 188 mph while in sixth gear. This is especially likely given that the base Corvette has an official top speed of 194 mph. We’ll have to wait for the luxury sports car to release to confirm, but fans should rejoice that the 2023 Corvette Z06 will have such an impressive top speed.

2023 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban Set To Receive GM’s Super Cruise…Sort Of

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, Chevy Tahoe in Miami, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Thursday, May 26th, 2022 at 3:34 PM

The 2023 Chevrolet and Suburban have become the latest vehicles of General Motors to offer the brand’s Super Cruise hands-free driver-assist technology. However, this is more of an intention rather than a definite reality…

“Due to current supply-chain shortages, certain features—including Super Cruise—have limited and late availability,” a spokesperson wrote in an email to Car and Driver. When asked by car review site, Car and Driver if Chevrolet may eventually need to push the debut of the Super Cruise technology in the Tahoe and Suburban to the 2024 model year, the same spokesperson replied that Chevy is “continuing to monitor chip availability and will make this determination when our business deems appropriate in the model year cycle.”

It seems clear to use that Chevrolet is remaining quite optimistic about its ability to get the necessary amount of semiconductor chips to get the Super Cruise system to the full-sized Tahoe and full-size Suburban SUVs for their 2023 model year. If not, it’s likely that we would have heard an announcement from the company pushing back this information until they got a better grasp on handling this pickle with the semiconductor chips.

On the other hand, some are speculating that there is the possibility that Chevrolet has released this information under the pretense of hoping for the best-case scenario while preparing for the worst. If the worst does indeed happen, and the company is forced to pull Super Cruise from the options sheet of the two big SUVs, then buyers of the 2023 Tahoe and Suburban will have a new car but with very minute changes for that model year. This includes three new exterior hues added to the two vehicle’s color options (Silver Sage Metallic, Sterling Gray Metallic, and Radiant Red Tintcoat), and a new accessor grill that does away with the classic bowtie badge, which will be available on LS, LT, RST, and Premier trims.

Having said that, if Chevrolet is successful, in fact, successful at implementing the Super Cruise on the 2023 Tahoe and Suburban, then buyers of these SUVs should expect to spend a pretty penny…but money well spent, on the Level 2 driver-assist system, especially since it’s only meant for the high-ranking Premier and High Country trims.

In the meantime, here are some other features to expect. The 2023 Tahoe can be expected to be filled with comfort features and conveniences such as a 10.2-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, onboard Wi-Fi, voice commands, and an incredible amount of 8 USB ports.

The 2023 Suburban can be expected to have just as many on-board features, along with a longer wheelbase, extra cargo room, and additional space for long-legged occupants to stretch while sitting in second or third-row seats.

All-New 2024 Chevy Silverado EV To Feature 400 Miles of Range

By Justin | Posted in Uncategorized on Friday, April 22nd, 2022 at 1:15 PM

The all-new all-electric Chevrolet Silverado EV is hoping to beat out competitors with its whopping 400 miles of battery range. The all-electric pickup truck will be Chevrolet’s second EV, following the Chevy Bolt. According to Chevrolet, the automaker wants to have at least 40% of its lineup consist of electric vehicles by the year 2025. This may seem bold, but the automaker has been steadily working toward new EVs like the Silverado EV and the Chevy Equinox EV. In producing new EVs, Chevrolet wants to ensure that they come equipped with high capability and performance. The Silverado EV is one of these as the automaker has said it will feature 400 miles of battery range, the most seen among current EV pickups. We’ll take a look at the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV and see what else consumers can expect. 

2024 Chevy Silverado EV Will Outmatch Competitors

The all-new 2024 Chevy Silverado EV is slated to feature 400 miles of battery range. Currently, among all the EV pickups, this will be the largest battery range available. The all-electric Silverado will be built on General Motors’ new Ultium platform. The pickup will feature a dual-electric motor setup and will be available in two trims, a Work Truck (WT) trim, and a high-performance RST trim. The WT trim will be capable of 510 horsepower and 615lb-ft of torque while the RST trim will reach 664 horsepower and 780lb-ft of torque. 

The 2024 Chevy Silverado will come available with a crew cab setup. Its exterior will feature a rather unconventional design as the EV pickup’s chassis is built around its battery pack. Its sail panel which is between the back of the passenger cabin and the top of the bed rail looks similar to the GMC Hummer EV. The pickup’s bed will feature dimensions of 5-feet, 11-inches in length, but with the mid-gate open and a configurable tailgate, this increases to 10-feet, 10-inches. The front end of the truck will be shorter to maximize driver visibility and increase passenger legroom. There will also be a frunk for extra storage space. 

Inside the 2024 Silverado EV, owners will note a 17-inch LCD infotainment screen. There will also be an 11-inch instrument display with a head-up display on the windshield. As far as overall styling goes, the interior will likely feature a similar design to higher-end Chevy trims. With so much performance and capability, the 2024 Chevy Silverado looks to pose as a tough competitor for other EV pickups like the F-150 Lightning and Ram EV. For now, we’ll have to wait for its release date in 2023 to confirm whether it has what it takes to be the strongest EV pickup.

The Chevy Trax Is Coming Back For More 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 Blazer, 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 Monday, April 18th, 2022 at 8:41 PM

Attention all SUV and compact lovers! A new generation of the Chevrolet Trax crossover is coming our way! Its more luxurious counterpart, the Buick Encore, shares the same platform and has similar mechanisms, but unfortunately, it’s getting the boot. Despite this, the Trax model is here to stay.

A spokesperson of the automaker told Roadshow that it “will reveal an all-new Trax later this year.” Meanwhile, the current Trax will end production late this year. The assembly of the next generation of this model will initiate in the first half of 2023.

Last year, the car company moved 42,590 examples of the Trax. This is a decrease of 59.9 percent from the Trax’s 106,299 deliveries in 2020. During the initial quarter of 2022, the subcompact’s volume was 5,801 units, which was a drop of 65.8 from the 16,955 vehicles in Q1 2021.

A report in March claimed that the Buick Encore was set to discontinue after its 2022 model year, and this claim turned out to be true.

As of yet, the Buick has sold much worse than the Trax, as the manufacturer delivered 20,072 Encores in 2021, which is a 51.9 percent drop from 2020. Then for the first quarter of 2022, Buick moved 2,620 Encores, amounting to a 57.9 percent drop from the same period in the previous year.

Chevrolet then updated the Trax SUV for its 2021 model year by bringing in a more advanced 1.4-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, with an output of 153 horsepower (114 kilowatts) and 177 lb-ft (240 Newton-meters) of torque. The preceding 1.4-L had an output of 138 hp (103 kW) and 148 lb-ft (201 Nm). The changes encompassed the implementation of direct fuel injection, as opposed to port injections.

The Chevrolet Trax and Buick Encore were closely matched to the European Opel Mokka crossover. Seeing how the Opel is now a part of the Stellantis bundle of brands, the latest Mokka vehicle has no relation to the previous version.

Furthermore, this European competitor is also available as an electric vehicle. The Mokka has a powertrain that amounts to 136 hp (100 kW) and 192 lb-ft (260 Nm) of torque. A 50-kilowatt-hour battery provides 200 miles (322 kilometers) of range, with the top speed coming at 93 miles per hour (150 kilometers per hour).

What to Expect from Chevrolet in 2022

By Justin | Posted in Uncategorized on Friday, April 15th, 2022 at 12:46 PM

Chevrolet will be bringing a host of updates to its lineup for the new model year. These updates will consist of minor and major changes that consumers will be sure to enjoy. The updates revolve around both exterior and interior changes. As of late, Chevrolet has been focusing on producing electric vehicles. The all-electric Chevy Bolt has proven quite successful, but Chevrolet wants to produce even more. The latest of these new electric vehicles is the Chevy Silverado EV and the Chevy Equinox EV. Both have been teased, but not much information is available yet. For now, Chevrolet is focusing on improving its combustion engine lineup. We’ll dive into some of the expected changes and updates.

GM Attempts To Regroup With Its New Bolt EV and EUV Ad Campaign

Bolt EV and Bolt EUV

The parent company of Chevrolet, General Motors (GM), launched its new ad campaign, Friday (April, 8), with the hopes of rebuilding trust in its customers. This process of gaining back trust is necessary when regarding the Chevrolet Bolt EV and EUV, as numerous production halts and pricey battery recalls pestered the company for more than a year.

Last year, multiple reports of battery fires forced the multinational automaker to issue a hefty recall for all Bolt EVs that were made at the start of production in 2017. It was an estimated $2 billion in the cost of swapping out batteries created by its partner LG Energy Solution.

Twenty-four incidents were made aware to federal regulators, while GM said that they were aware of 19 related car problems.

Last week marked the start of a new rollout of ads via a national television campaign…that doesn’t mention the recall.

According to Newsweek, Shad Balch, director of Chevrolet communications, said that the campaign is intended to show the ease and convenience of having an electric vehicle.

One spot conveys the Bolt’s range to the viewers’ by showing a driver listening to his mother’s chatter-box during a long drive. Meanwhile, another ad titled “Life Changes,” shows a mom-to-be learning about the charging process.

In regards to what potential buyers should consider when thinking about purchasing Bolt despite its previous battery issues, Balch said that the EV represents a focus on gaining consumer trust and a positive entry point for drivers considering swapping their gasoline-powered cars for fully-electric ones.

“We have kept our customers first in every step of this process and will continue to reaffirm that commitment,” he said. “For consumers we will focus on the attributes that make Bolt EV/EUV the perfect choice to switch from gas to electric: long-range EV loaded with technology at an affordable price.”

He also said that the company is certain that it will set a sales record for the Bolt and transcend that projected record in 2023.

Last year, the company sold 24,828 Bolt EVs and EUVs.

It was in November 2020 when the first recall notice went out, with GM saying that 50,932 vehicles that were produced from 2017 to 2019 had a fire risk, warning its customers not to charge their cars with high-voltage lithium-ion batteries to full capacity.

It was after a series of reported fires that involved the battery, the company lengthened its recall in August 2021 to involve every Bolt made since 2017.

Although customers waited for the defective batteries to be replaced, the company instructed drivers to lessen their battery capacity to 90 percent, keeping the battery charged to 70 miles or range, at the minimum, along with parking their vehicles outside and not charging them overnight.

In December, the American car manufacturer released a software update that automatically sets the Bolt’s top charge limit to 80 percent, enabling drivers to leave the car charging overnight and to park indoors.

Throughout this process, production was also halted due to supply chain issues intruding with the manufacturing of replacement batteries. This caused GM to issue production halts for the Bolt line, which was extended until production restarted this month, in April.

Chevrolet Helps Untangle A Teen’s Twisted Predicament

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, April 5th, 2022 at 7:37 PM

A few weeks ago in Elgin, Texas, it was a seemingly average day for 16-year old, Riley Leon. The teen was driving home from a job interview that particular day, on Highway 290, when found himself caught in a severe storm… which resulted in him getting caught in an EF-2 tornado.

As many individuals saw on a viral video, the tornado blew into Leon’s truck and spun it around several times before miraculously flipping back onto the truck’s wheels, allowing Leon to finally escape from the twister and only leaving with a cut on his elbow.

“Grateful I’m here. Grateful God gave me another chance,” Leon told FOX 7.

Unsurprisingly, as a result of this incident, the entire driver’s side of the teen’s red Chevrolet truck was dented. 

“So it was family. That truck helped me and my dad get to where we are now. To see that it’s gone, it brings a lot of tears to me,” said Leon. The pickup was indeed precious to Leon, as it had been in Leon’s family before his sister was even born.

In a rather exciting turn of events, Leon was not only offered the job he was interviewed for, but he was also awarded a 2022 Chevrolet Silverado pickup!

Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet, an affiliated dealer in Texas, teamed up with Chevrolet and the Chevy Cares, a charity foundation, to give Leon a new car. Randall Shapiro, president of the dealership, told Fox News Autos said he started calling around to track him down to offer him the truck as soon as he saw what happened to Leon.

Chevrolet also released in a statement:

“Chevrolet, together with Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet of Fort Worth, TX, are donating a 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT All Star Edition in Cherry Red to Riley Leon and his family after he survived a powerful tornado while driving in his Silverado. We are thankful Riley is safe, commend his driving skills during a frightening situation, and our hearts are with other families in Texas that have been affected by these storms. To help aid the recovery efforts in Texas, Chevy Cares is donating $50,000 to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. Due to the quick action of the team at Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet, the new truck will be presented to Riley and his family on Saturday, March 26, at the dealership.”

The new pickup that was presented to Leon is a Cherry Red Silverado 1500 All-Star Edition, which has a starting price of $50,000, (plus destination fee). As previously stated, this is the same amount that Chevy Cares pledged to donate to the American Red Cross organization, to help those affected by the severe storm.

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

For some the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado isn’t just any ol’ pickup, it’s a one-of-a-kind truck that fuses all of your needs in one, with its aggressive styling, Multimatic DSSV dampers, upgraded technology, and otherworldly deluxe interior.

Miami Lakes Automall is selling this hot commodity at its dealership in various different trims and configurations. Those who are interested in purchasing this vehicle can simply view our online new car inventory and chat with a representative for further assistance.

GM Teases Chevy Equinox EV in Short Trailer

By Justin | Posted in Uncategorized on Friday, April 1st, 2022 at 6:12 PM

Chevrolet recently released a short teaser video showcasing the all-new all-electric Chevrolet Equinox. The electric SUV is just one of the many EVs that Chevy is working on. Like many other automakers, Chevrolet has been working to produce a lineup of electric vehicles to help reduce global carbon emissions. The automaker has teased the electric Chevy Silverado and there have also been rumors of an electric Chevy Blazer. We’ll have to wait for more information about both, but for now, we’ll dive into the latest teaser video showing off the new electric Equinox.

Chevrolet Equinox EV Debuts

Chevrolet recently put out a teaser video for the all-new Chevrolet Equinox EV. The automaker had teased the new EV SUV earlier in the year at the 2022 CES show. There, Chevy showcased computer-generated renderings of the battery-powered SUV. Now Chevrolet is publishing a short teaser video depicting the SUV and its sleek design. 

In the 30 second clip from Chevy, we can see that the Chevy Equinox EV has narrow and slit-like headlights that flow into the grille bar. The EV SUV seems to have a soft and round front end and hood. The front end appears friendly as though suited for families rather than aggressive. A charging port can be seen on the driver’s side front fender and the door handles are the pop-out style that seems to be common on electric vehicles. 

Further along in the teaser video, we see the smooth and flowy sides of the Chevy Equinox EV. These wrap into the rear bumper which has the name Equinox stitched in grey metal. The ‘E’ in Equinox is the three-bar Ultium logo which alludes to the Ultium electric platform that GM is using for its EVs. The logo meshes well with the radiant blue color scheme of the SUV. Speaking of the color, it seems the Equinox EV has a two-tone paint scheme as the roof and A-pillars have a white contrast with the blue body.

The all-new Chevy Equinox EV is supposedly going to start at an MSRP of $30,000 (plus destination fee). We’ll have to wait for more details about the EV SUV, but based on the teaser video it looks to define a new era for Chevrolet.

iSeeCars Study Finds 2022 Chevy Tahoe Likely to Reach 200,000 Miles

By Justin | Posted in Uncategorized on Friday, March 25th, 2022 at 1:33 PM

The 2022 Chevy Tahoe was recently categorized as one of the top vehicles to reach at least 200,000 miles in its lifetime. This analysis comes from the automotive research site iSeeCars. The online site focuses on data analysis to determine the various qualities of different vehicles. In order to discover whether the Chevy Tahoe could go beyond 200,000 miles, iSeeCars analyzed sales and registration data as well as the percentages of vehicles that surpassed the mile threshold. Several other Chevy models made the top list as well. This is good news for General Motors (GM) which has been in the spotlight recently for its all-electric 2023 Chevy Silverado. Like many automakers, GM has been focusing on electrifying its lineup. Despite the focus on EVs, we’re glad to see GM still prioritizing its gasoline models.

Chevy Tahoe Can Reach 200,000 Miles

According to a recent top 15 list by iSeeCars, the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe is more than capable of reaching 200,000 miles within its lifetime. This analysis comes from the automotive research site iSeeCars which utilized sale and registration data to determine the capability of the Chevy Tahoe. The online site also utilized the percentage of units from specific models that had surpassed this mile threshold. About the Tahoe, iSeeCars analyst Karl Brauer said,

“All manufactured by General Motors, the Chevrolet Suburban, GMC Yukon, GMC Yukon XL, and Chevrolet Tahoe share a platform and many common parts, confirming why these popular family vehicles are all likely to last 200,000 miles,” Brauer said.

According to iSeeCars’ top 15 list, the 2022 Chevy Tahoe placed seventh. This means that of all the Chevy Tahoes currently registered in the US, 4.4 percent of them have 200,000 or more miles. As a family-size SUV, this reliability is a great asset for the Tahoe. Other GM vehicles also made the list. These included the Chevy Suburban in 3rd place with 6.6 percent and the GMC Yukon XL in 4th with 5.2 percent.

The 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe starts at an MSRP of $50,200 (plus destination fee). The full-size family SUV was revamped for the 2022 model year, so it features improved handling, a more spacious interior, and GM’s advanced safety features.

The Chevy Trax And Buick Are Saying Good-Bye In 2022

Chevy Trax And Buick Are Being Discontinued

Those who closely follow General Motors (GM), shouldn’t be too shocked that its subsidiaries, Chevrolet and Buick are getting rid of their Trax and Encore SUVs. These crossover models are set to discontinue by the end of the current 2022 model year, as stated in a report from GM Authority. Taking their place will be the Chevy Trailblazer and Buick Encore GX, which are already on sale.

The Trax and Encore SUVs became accessible in 2015 and 2013 to go on sale for those particular model years, successively. Since then, GM has provided minute changes to keep them looking fresh and interesting. About a couple of years ago, there was already talk that these models would get the boot from their respective lineups when the Chevy Trailblazer and Buick Encore GX came onto the scene, but GM decided against it, the reason being that sales were still going strong.

For all that, the Chevy Trailblazer and Buick Encore GX are more upmarket by far, which means that they could soon become more pricey as soon as optional packages come into play. Despite this, sales have experienced a steep decline since these successors arrived. Simply put, there is no reason to keep the Trax and Encore anymore. The compacts are manufactured in South Korea and production will officially retire in August.

While GM always had the intention to discontinue these models, they had to be strategic with the actual timing. This signal came when the sales of the Trailblazer and Encore GX become stronger than they’ve ever been. In 2021, sales for the Trax went down by 60 percent while Encore deliveries experienced a dip by 52 percent. A few years back, GM had to choose between heavily updating the crossovers or getting rid of them entirely.

There are some that agree that the latter decision made the most sense, particularly because the Trailblazer and Encore GX both possess longer wheelbases, allowing for greater rear-seat space and cargo capacity overall. This is also despite only being a few inches longer. Their cabins also have a more deluxe ambiance owing to their improved styling and higher quality for their build materials.

Funny enough, a spokesperson for GM hasn’t even officially confirmed the discontinuation of the models just yet. However, the car blog, Car Buzz has reached out to the two subsidiaries and is currently waiting on a response. What we know to be certain is that Chevrolet will proceed with selling five crossovers, while Buick will have four.

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

Standard safety features of the 2022 Trailblazer includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, lane-departure warning, distance indicator, forward-collision alert, and automatic high beams. It also comes with a 7-inch screen with a backup camera, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and SiriusXM satellite radio.

If you’re interested in purchasing a new Trailblazer SUV, be sure to do it at Miami Lakes Automall. We carry an extensive range of vehicles from the brand that range in various trims and prices.

2022 Chevrolet Blazer vs 2022 Chevrolet Traverse, Which is Best for You?

By Justin | Posted in Uncategorized on Friday, March 18th, 2022 at 1:52 PM

The 2022 Chevrolet Blazer is a mid-size SUV that offers consumers versatility and ample cabin space. With a sporty look, the 2022 Blazer offers those wanting good handling and performance an affordable vehicle that still retains elements of an SUV. In direct comparison to the 2022 Blazer is the 2022 Chevrolet Traverse. The 2022 Traverse is also a mid-size SUV, but it makes up where the Blazer lacks. The Traverse offers more space for passengers and cargo. It also features more advanced safety features. Both SUVs have a similar price point, so we’ll explore the pros and cons of both to determine which is best suited for certain needs. 

2022 Chevy Blazer

The 2022 Chevrolet Blazer arrives with a sporty, muscular look that is backed by its choice of engine, either a turbocharged four-cylinder 2.0L or a 3.6L V6. For those wanting more in terms of performance, the Blazer can meet those needs with its powerful 308 horsepower V6 engine. The mid-size SUV is also paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission that can be utilized with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The 2022 Blazer has great handling on the road, but it does taper off when off-road so this SUV is best for cities.

Inside the 2022 Blazer, consumers will note a straightforward interior with an 8-inch touchscreen. In terms of space, the Blazer does pale in comparison to the 2022 Traverse. The Blazer gets 64.2 cubic feet of cargo space when all the seats are folded, but despite this, it can be a bit tight in the back for adults. For safety, the 2022 Chevy Blazer gets automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist, lane-departure warnings, and forward-collision alerts.

2022 Chevy Traverse

The 2022 Chevrolet Traverse sits at a similar price point as the 2022 Blazer, but it offers more in terms of SUV capability. While still considered mid-size, the Traverse has enough room for 7 or 8 passengers. It also has 100 cubic feet of storage space. The Traverse offers second-row captain chairs or a second-row bench. The captain chairs reduce passenger space but they offer more comfort. The mid-size SUV also features a modern infotainment system compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

In terms of performance, the 2022 Traverse comes equipped with a 3.6L V6  capable of 300 horsepower. The mid-size SUV features front-wheel drive, but owners can opt for all-wheel drive for a fee. Equipped with a towing package, the Traverse can also pull up to 5,000 pounds.

Verdict

Both the 2022 Chevy Blazer and Chevy Traverse offer versatility and comfortability. As mid-size SUVs, they offer a great price point for those needing something with more room for passengers and cargo. Where these SUVs diverge, however, is with their performance and function. 

At an MSRP of $33,400 (plus destination fee), the 2022 Chevy Blazer offers a more engaging driving experience with its choice of engines. It also has good handling and proves effective in the city. At an MSRP of $33,700 (plus destination fee), the 2022 Chevy Traverse offers more in terms of passenger and cargo space. It also has more safety features and when equipped with a towing package, it proves useful for towing. For those prioritizing a larger family, the Traverse is the optimal choice.

The 2023 Chevy Blazer Gets An Upgrade With Its Powertrain and Performance

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, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Monday, March 14th, 2022 at 12:06 PM

2023 Chevy Blazer

Towards the beginning of this year, Chevrolet revealed that they would release their mid-size Blazer in 2023, in an electrified form. However, before this SUV dumps the gasoline pump, the automaker is still giving its standard Blazer a revamp for next year, involving the enhancement of its styling on the outer body and augmenting the interior with a larger touchscreen.

While the visual details for the upcoming Blazer are nearly inconspicuous, the interior shakes things up with its high-mounted LED running lights, which are sleeker and bleed into a new grille design. This grille design is now mated to the central headlight unit through a C-formed trim piece.

Going to the back, you’ll see that the taillights receive new LED light signatures. There are also new available wheel designs: 18-, 20-, and 21-inch. Along with these new kicks are a slew of paint colors, which encompass Fountain Blue, Sterling Gray Metallic, Copper Bronze Metallic, and Radiant Red Tintcoat.

Inhouse, all upcoming Blazers will receive a 10.0-inch infotainment screen, which is an upgrade of 2 inches. It’s also getting wireless charging capability. The RS model will also get a Nightshift Blue interior. The mid-sizer will continue to have its offering of a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four, with an output of 228 horsepower, or a 3.6-liter V-6 producing 308 hp. Both powertrains will still be mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission, with front-wheel-drive (FWD) or all-wheel-drive (AWD) offerings.

SS Performance Variant

Recently, the division of General Motors announced that on top of its electrified version for the Blazer, it will be releasing a performance-centered SS trim. A teaser video that was released last week, (March 9), showed the SUV following a bundle of other announcements regarding electrics, encompassing the GMC Hummer EV and Chevy Silverado EV pickup trucks, which all use the brand’s Ultium battery technology.

A short time ago, Chevrolet showed us the first images of its Equinox EV, an electric SUV joining the company’s other compact crossover in their electrified form. Strutting a unique design, the newest Equinox will go on sale by the fall of next year. It was also at this time that the automaker mentioned its EV version of the Blazer, bringing along with it a performance SS model.

It’s worth noting that the teaser video doesn’t reveal too much. It opens up showing a charger being disconnected from a port behind the front left wheel. The second shot shows the charging port while also revealing black plastic cladding around the wheel well and what seems to be a sharply sloped hood. One can also get a quick glimpse of the Ss badge at the button of one of the wheel’s six spokes.

Chevrolet says that the Blazer will be its first EV to receive a performance SS badge when it’s introduced later this year. While the company didn’t explicitly mention this, it’s presumed that that EV version will be offered in a way that’s centered on comfort. The Blazer SS is set to go on sale in the Spring of next year, and it’s also expected that it will include the Ultium batteries.

The exact pricing will be revealed as we get closer to the on-sale date, but it likely won’t change too much from the current Blazer’s price ranging from $34,595, (plus destination fee) to $45,195, (plus destination fee).

Some of these comforts include standard keyless entry, push-button start, touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, four USB ports, the Teen Driver system, General Motors’ OnStar telematics system and subscription-based 4G LTE connectivity with Wi-Fi.

More safety-oriented features consist of forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning, and lane-keeping assist.

Higher trims offer things like a power driver’s seat, surround-view camera, leather interior, and a power liftgate. The Premier trim gets a new automatic parking assist, while the RS model receives darkened exterior aesthetics and unique interior accents.

“A compact crossover with a comfortable interior, the Chevrolet Equinox offers a good range of standard and available features,” KBB says of the hot-selling Chevy. “Seating is plush and supportive with standard cloth surfaces that become leather on higher trims. Adding visual appeal is the RS trim with red contrast stitching. There’s ample room for five adults with good headroom and legroom for rear passengers. Available options include a power driver’s seat, heated seats, and a premium audio system.”

It wasn’t much of a surprise that the vast majority of these models happened to be crossovers, as vehicles in this segment are known for having a softer suspension and longer travel capability than regular passenger models. These types of vehicles are more equipped to handle potholes and grooves in the road, which is ideal for daily driving or long road trips.

These vehicles are also quite roomy and often consist of a great selection of standard active safety features. Having said that, there were some sedans that crawled their way into the bottom of the list, including the previously mentioned 2022 Honda Accord, as well as the 2022 Toyota Camry, 2022 Hyundai Sonata, and the 2022 Nissan Altima.

The high-ranking vehicle on KBB’s list was the 2022 Honda CR-V. Following this were the 2022 Toyota RAV4 and 2022 Subaru Forester.

Chevrolet Reboots Sopranos Intro For Special Super Bowl Ad

By Justin | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevy, Chevy dealers, Chevy Dealership, Miami Chevy on Friday, February 25th, 2022 at 3:34 PM

One of the best parts of the Super Bowl (aside from the game and the halftime show) is the commercials. Every year, U.S companies rack their brains to present the best advertisement with the hopes of getting the most views and attention. From comedic takes to adorable presentations, companies vie to have the most memorable commercial. This year at Super Bowl LVI, Chevrolet went all out for their all-electric Chevrolet Silverado EV. With the hopes of playing toward some nostalgia, the automaker rebooted and updated the HBO show “The Sopranos.” The sixty-second ad featured character’s from the series including the main character Tony Soprano’s daughter, Meadow. We’ll dissect the ad further and see how Chevy landed on this, but it’s safe to say they definitely made an impression.

Chevy Shows Off Silverado EV During Super Bowl Ad

For Super Bowl LVI, Chevrolet decided to play on some heartstrings and drum up some nostalgia. For their commercial, the automaker rebooted and updated the introduction for the HBO show, “The Sopranos.” The sixty-second ad was called ‘New Generation’ and it featured mob boss Tony Soprano’s daughter and her brother (played by Jamie Lynn Siegler and Robert Iler respectively) along with the all-new Silverado EV. About the ad, vice president of Chevrolet marketing Steve Majoros said, 

“It’s a different way of showcasing ‘The Sopranos’ and showcasing Chevrolet, and it felt like the nice thing to do. When you have a truck this important to our business, there’s really no other logical platform to do this,” said Majoros. 

Chevrolet’s commercial aired during the first quarter of the Super Bowl game. It included many of the same shots as the original show’s introduction, but it replaced Tony Soprano with his daughter Meadow. Meadow is seen driving a 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV. The original theme song “Woke Up This Morning” can be heard throughout the ad. Meadow’s brother A.J does a voiceover and says, “The first-ever, all-electric Chevy Silverado. A whole new truck for a whole new generation.” 

Chevy’s Super Bowl ad was directed by the creator and director of “The Sopranos,” David Chase. The director of photography for the show Phil Abraham also helped. The ad played on the Silverado EV’s capabilities by starting out with a surprise blackout just before the game started. The ad then went on to state that with the pickup’s built-in 4G LTE, fans could still watch the game in the face of an actual power outage. This marked the first time Chevrolet aired an ad during the Super Bowl since 2015. With the new wave of EVs, it’s no wonder Chevy felt the time had come to showcase their most important truck.

The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV: Up Close and Personal

2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV

Last week, the YouTube channel, Redline Reviews went to this year’s 2022 Chicago Auto Show, specifically to cover the upcoming 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV pickup. The reviewers appeared to be quite swayed by the truck, however, potential buyers will have to wait about a year before General Motors (GM) release it to dealerships.

GM revealed its revamped Silverado model as one of several future vehicles that will be a part of its electrified plans, with the hopes of dominating Tesla as the main electric car producer in the U.S. GM also aims to start deliveries of its latest EV truck in the spring of 2023, even though it’s only meant for the work truck. Additional trims will not be accessible until some time in 2023.

Loyalists of the brand should know that this isn’t GM’s first rodeo when it comes to electric trucks, as the car company started releasing its colossal GMC Hummer EV in December of last year. Apart from this, the Rivian R1T is the only electric pickup that is accessible in the North American market. Next up will be Ford’s F-150 Lightning pickup, with the automaker pushing to begin its deliveries in spring of this year.

The Silverado EV will be among a long list of electric vehicles, made for utility, that is part of GM’s new Ultimum architecture. As a matter of fact, the Silverado has the same underpinnings as the GMC Hummer EV, though it’s highly plausible that there will be a GMC Sierra at some point in the future.

In order to have some skin in the game and face off with F-150 Lightning and Tesla Cybertruck, it’s imperative that GM ensures that their latest Silverado is a pickup that provides the utmost range while maintaining its capability. In the same way, Redline Reviews discussed, the 2024 Silverado is astounding overall in its specs, particularly with its fully electric range of more than 400 miles and 664 horsepower.

The Silverado EV seems to follow in the footsteps of the F-150 Lighting in that it appears as a conventional pickup, but with a futuristic twist. Redline Reviewers say that it’s almost like a Chevy Bolt EV wedded to a truck. It’s quite conspicuous its similar design style than that of the brand’s Avalanche.

Unsurprisingly, this Chevy model will be generous in the room that it provides, highly accommodating, and possess great usefulness. The prototype shown in Redline’s video is derived from the high-bred RST trim, indicating that lesser trims may not be as flamboyant, but they’ll at least prove to be more cost effective.

The Silverado EV work truck (WT) will have a starting price nearing $40,000 (plus destination fee). This price is similar to that of the F-150 Lighting and Cybertruck. At the same time, an RST First Edition Silverado that is fully loaded will go around 100,000 (plus destination fee). Of course, after the initial production and release of the WT, the company will provide a full lineup of Silverado’s with starting prices raining from $50,000 to over $80,000 (plus destination fee).

2023 Chevy Blazer to Feature New Styling

By Justin | Posted in Bolt EUV, Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevy, Chevy Blazer, Chevy Dealership, Chevy Miami on Friday, February 18th, 2022 at 2:10 PM

Chevrolet will be updating the 2023 Chevy Blazer for the new model year. The midsize crossover SUV will receive new exterior styling as well as an interior makeover. Chevrolet, like many other automakers, has been focusing on electric vehicles. The automaker recently announced its first EV, the Chevrolet Silverado EV. Although not much is known about the electric pickup, it’s a good sign of Chevy’s progress in adopting the new EV trend. This doesn’t mean that Chevy will ignore the rest of its lineup, however. As we see with the 2023 Blazer, Chevrolet will continue to provide consumers with the latest updates and technology features. Last year, the 2022 Blazer was given a Recommended rating by the non-profit organization Consumer Reports. For the 2023 Blazer, we expect the same amount of attention to detail so we’ll dive in and see what consumers can expect.

2023 Chevy Blazer Receives New Styling

The 2023 Chevrolet Blazer will be receiving a new exterior and interior update. The midsize crossover SUV has done well since its reintroduction in 2019. As a fifth-generation vehicle, the 2023 Blazer offers the latest in technology and safety features. Chevrolet has said that it will be electrifying the midsize crossover later in 2023, but for now, the automaker will be improving it with a facelift. There will also be improvements to the interior cabin.

Looking at the new 2023 Chevy Blazer, consumers will first note the new LED running lights. These have been slimmed down and now flow into a new grille design that is linked to the main headlight unit. In the back, the taillights also see new LED light signatures. New 18-inch, 20-inch, and 21-inch wheel designs will be available with a new series of paint colors including Fountain Blue, Sterling Gray Metallic, Copper Bronze Metallic, and Radiat Red Tintcoat. 

Inside the 2023 Blazer, owners will note a new 10-inch center screen. This will come with wireless charging capabilities. There’s also a new material available for the RS trim, the Nightshift Blue. This imbues the interior cabin with a soft dark blue hue. As for the engine, the 2023 Blazer offers either a turbocharged 2.0L inline-four engine or a 3.6L V6 engine. Both engines pair with a nine-speed automatic transmission and the crossover SUV can come with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The 2023 Chevy Blazer will be available in the summer of 2022. Pricing has not yet been released, but it’s likely that the crossover SUV will fall between the current Blazer’s price of $34,595 and $45,195 (plus destination fee).

The 2022 Chevy Tahoe’s Greatest Hits

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 Tahoe in Miami, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Monday, February 14th, 2022 at 3:28 PM

The 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe is a force to be reckoned with. This full-size SUV can easily haul families and all of their cargo supplies without fear of being cramped. It blends in well with the other aristocrats at high-end restaurants.

New features include a standard 12-inch digital driver information display, Buckle to Drive technology, Reverse Automatic Braking and Enhanced Trailer View available on the two upper trims, optional Sports Performance Package on the RST, and the Off-Road Performance package offered on the Z71.

Interior

As one may be able to guess from the exterior, the Tahoe’s cabin is indeed spacious, with plenty of room within its three rows and unbeatable comfort. There is plenty of room offered on the second-row seats, especially with its ability to slide and recline during long road trips. There are even optional dual 12.6-inch infotainment screens. 

The independent rear suspension is a major plus for this SUV, as this is useful in expanding cargo space. Luggage space amounts to 25.5 cubic feet, only to expand to 72.6 cubic feet when seats from the third row. Second-row seats can also make a split, increasing the cargo room to an incredible 122.9 cubic feet of space. Clearly, this model is no one-trick pony.

Standard Features

The base-level LS trim invites standard features like 8-inch alloy wheels, LED exterior lighting, rain-sensing wipers, heated side mirrors, side steps, keyless entry/ignition, remote start, 3-zone automatic climate control, cloth upholstery, two 120-volt outlets, programmable Teen Driver key, and power-adjustable front seats.

Safety features are plentiful with standard forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assistance/lane-departure warning, rear seat reminder, front/rear parking sensors, automatic high beams, and even the new Buckle to Drive.

Passengers can enjoy comforts like wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration, Wi-Fi, six USB ports, satellite radio, and Bluetooth.

While all of these features are great, it’s still recommended to at least upgrade to the LT, as this will welcome the new-for-2022 12-inch digital driver information display, memory settings for the driver’s seat, heated front seats, self-dimming rearview mirror, universal garage door opener, hands-free liftgate operation, and wireless charging. This trim also has the Bose 9-speaker audio system and navigation.

V8 Engine and Performance

The 2022 Tahoe offers three powertrains: 5.3-liter V8 (standard), 6.2-liter V8, and the 3.0-liter turbocharged diesel. High Country’s 6.2-liter has the best capability regarding speed and strength, delivering an output of 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. It’s also optional on the RST, Z71, and Premier models.

The 10-speed automatic transmission takes advantage of this power by making quick yet inconspicuous shifts. These components manage to provide a stunning performance without feeling too busy. 

Another impressive feature is the SUV’s towing capability. Again with the 6.2-L, the four-wheel-drive (4WD) model can haul up to 8,100 lbs, and when rightfully geared, it can max out at 8,400 lbs.

Miami Lakes Chevy

When it comes to the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe, the world is truly your oyster. There are also plenty of factory options that can be had such as the Driver Alert Package (LT, RST, and Z71), new Off-Road Performance package (Z71), and new Reverse Automaking Braking (Premier and High Country).

There is even a Luxury package with a 360-degree camera system and rear pedestrian alert, plus self-dimming side mirrors, power-adjustable steering column, heated steering wheel, and heated outboard second-row seats (three higher trims).

You can enjoy all of these features by making your purchase of the latest Tahoe SUV at Miami Lakes Automall. We sell a wide range of vehicles from the brand ranging in various shapes and sizes. Those who are interested in this vehicle can simply view our online new car inventory for assistance.

Chevrolet to Offer Affordable Electric Mystery Car

By Justin | Posted in Bolt EUV, Chevrolet, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevy, Chevy dealers on Friday, February 11th, 2022 at 5:31 PM

Chevrolet is planning to offer consumers a more affordable electric vehicle. While the automaker currently offers the Chevy Bolt EV at a starting MSRP of $31,500 (plus destination fee), Chevrolet wants to provide more options for consumers. This comes during a time when many automakers are working to shift their lineups toward EVs in the wake of an ongoing global climate crisis. Chevrolet has teased an all-electric Silverado which is set to compete with Ford’s F-150 Lightning and Tesla’s Cybertruck. The automaker isn’t stopping there, however. According to Chevrolet, they’ll be working on electric versions of SUVs and sports cars. We’ll try to see exactly what Chevy has in store, but this is certainly an exciting time for EV fans. 

Chevrolet to Offer More EVs

Chevrolet will be expanding its EV lineup. According to the automaker, the goal is to sell hundreds of thousands of EVs annually in the United States by 2025. This may seem a difficult task given the current supply chain issue, but once these resolve Chevy will have a full go signal. Chevy has been teasing the Chevrolet Silverado EV for some time now. Although it seems a fierce competitor, General Motors (GM) is already teasing several new mystery EVs. We’re not sure what these mystery EVs will be, but based on the pictures, they look to be an SUV and a sports car. During a recent earnings call, GM CEO Mary Barra said,

“Affordable EVs aren’t part of the market that start-ups aren’t targeting, but they are key to driving mass adoption of EVs, which is a national and a global priority,” said Barra. “That’s why we plan to follow the Equinox with an even more affordable EV.”

GM’s CEO understands that EVs are the future. She also understands that there are some setbacks that may cause consumers to be hesitant. Despite this wariness, GM and Chevrolet will be investing in a new Ultium platform. This will serve as the new base for new electric vehicles like the Silverado EV. Future iterations of the Chevy Bolt will also make their way to this new platform. One of the more important details that Barra stated was the fact that the automakers were working on more affordable EVs. The Chevy Bolt is reasonably priced but we’ll have to see what the Equinox EV starts at. If GM and Chevy are dead set on affordable EVs, this may be the perfect opportunity for those wanting to test the waters with an EV of their own.

The 2023 Chevy Blazer: Refreshed With Better Tech

2023 Chevy Blazer

The Chevrolet Blazer crossover has been gussied up for 2023. This up-to-the-minute SUV brings on some minute alterations that make a considerable difference. New changes include touched-up exterior styling, a new infotainment screen, updated wheel designs, and added goodies for the newest model year. These developments make more improvements on a nearly perfect product.

Externally, the funky and fresh Blazer gets the special treatment with a new front fascia and grille. The LED headlights have been tweaked and made over. There are new daytime running lamps that make use of the same lighting technology, and the taillights are a fresh feature too. 

Chevy even offers a new list of available wheel sizes: 18-, 20-, and 21-inches. Potential buyers also have a new selection of paint colors, such as Fountain Blue, Sterling Gray Metallic, Copper Bronze Metallic, and Radiant Red Tintcoat.

From the inside, drivers and passengers are treated like kings, as the cabin has a new touchscreen infotainment display that measures out to an expansive 10 inches. This display serves as a standard on each and every model, it’s also considered to be an impressive upgrade from 2021’s 8-inch screen. New 2023 Blazer also gets a standard wireless charging pad for mobile devices, while RS’s also get a new interior hue dubbed Nightshift Blue.

Blazer shoppers have four trim levels to choose from: 2LT, 3LT, RS, and Premier. An all-wheel-drive (AWD) system can be had on LT’s and Premier models, though a more developed twin-clutch AWD system is offered on RS models. Chevy also puts your safety first by expanding adaptive cruise control on lesser trims. There are also a great number of standard driver-assist features such as lane-keeping assist, automatic high beams, and forward collision alert.

Regarding what’s beneath the hood, there aren’t too many details. Two engines are offered, with the base being a 228-horsepower 2.0-liter turbo-four, while the 3.6-liter V6 speeds up to 308 horsepower. The V6 is reserved for the RS model but is available for 3LTs and Premieres. Both engines are paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission.

Since its recent inception, the Blazer crossover has been regarded as a fashion staple in the automotive industry, voguing it out with rivals like the Ford Edge and Nissan Murano. It’s also quite versatile, with the 2023 model serving 30.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind the back seats and 64.2 cubic feet with the 2nd-row seats folded.

At the current moment, we do not know the exact pricing for this vehicle. If all goes well, meaning that Chevy doesn’t face production delays or more hiccups from the ongoing semiconductor shortage, the 2023 Blazer should be heading to dealerships this summer.

Chevy’s 2024 Silverado EV Is In High Demand

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 Miami, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Monday, January 31st, 2022 at 3:04 PM

100,000 Reserved The Electric Silverado

The Chevrolet company recently unveiled its first-ever electric pickup truck, and it’s safe to say that its reception was well received, with at least 110,000 people already signing up to make a purchase.

As many automakers are fighting the good fight in the transition of becoming an electric brand, we imagine that it must be gratifying for any automotive company to receive interest in their new hybrid or fully-electric models.

It is worth mentioning, however, that while Chevy’s numbers show some enticement for the truck, they still have some ways to go before completely replacing the love that Americans have for their gas-powered vehicles. In 2021, the car company sold close to 520,000 non-electric Silverados, reaching right behind the Ford F-150 and Ram 1500.

Another important detail is that a reservation is just that…a reservation. An interested buyer could reserve their right to the truck by paying a fee of $100, and if they change their mind, the payment is refundable. Various details regarding the new Silverado are being kept hush-hush, it’s possible that some may not follow through with their reservation.

More Info On The Silverado EV

The latest Silverado is scheduled to arrive in the spring of next year as a 2024 model. It will also include two trim levels.

The basic work truck (WT) model will have a starting price of $39,000, (plus destination fee). It has a capable output of 510 horsepower and 615 lb-ft of torque. The company estimates that it will carry a range close to 400 miles between charges. Towing capacity is also 8,000 lbs, while the payload is at 1,200 lbs.

The second option and last option will be a fully loaded RST model. This sticker price reaches all the way up to $105,000, (plus destination fee), but it includes a boatload of conveniences that make it all worth it. It also increases its speed and strength, with 644 horsepower and 780 lb-ft of torque. It can also tow up to 10,000 lbs and has a payload of 1,300.

The automaker maker says that more trim levels will be revealed before the arrival date, including an adventurous Trail Boss version, with a price currently unknown.

More Electric Pickups Coming Our Way

The fun doesn’t stop there in the automotive world and their electric pickups, as there are more vehicles in store for us! The Silverado EV will sit on General Motors’ (GM) new Ultium electric vehicle architecture. This unit will contain all of the necessary components and batteries and can be set up to build vehicles of many shapes and sizes.

GM has already made strides in the pickup segment with its Hummer EV. This truck follows the R1T from the startup company, Rivian. When we see the Silverado, those who will have been accompanied by Ford’s F-150 Lightning EV, which has already received an impressive amount of reservations.

GM Says 2023 Chevy Corvette Will Arrive Soon

By Justin | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevy, Chevy Corvette, Miami Chevy on Friday, January 28th, 2022 at 5:29 PM
2023-chevrolet-corvette

General Motors (GM) will be opening up the dealer order guide for the 2023 Chevy Corvette in March of 2022. GM will also be cutting production of the 2022 Corvette soon after this. It seems that the automaker wants to phase out older models and reign in new ones. This has always been the course for automakers and these days with the transition toward EVs on the forefront, automakers must keep their consumers happy, even as they plan new models like the Silverado EV. Fans of the luxury sports car can rejoice however as the new Corvette will feature a brand new V8 engine. It will also feature some minor cosmetic and option changes. We’ll move along and see what else we can expect from the new Corvette.

2023 Corvette Receives Production Date

General Motors will be starting production of the 2023 Corvette on May 9th, 2022. The luxury sports car will see its dealer order guide become available shortly before that, March 21st, 2022. This information comes from the Corvette Action Center site. According to the site, key dates and information about the 2023 Corvette were sent to various Chevy dealers from GM. With the information making the rounds, consumers and fans alike are excited for a new iteration of the iconic corvette.

Consumers can expect to see the 2023 Chevy Corvette become available around March of 2022. The dealer order guide will become available on March 21st and dealers will be able to place orders three days later on March 24th. The online configurator will also be made available. Later on March 31st, dealers will be able to pair their orders with Corvette allocations. Sometime after this in May, the 2022 Corvette will cease production. Though the 2022 Corvette will have spent just 8 months in production, it’s clear GM is making room to bring the better and badder 2023 Corvette out to consumers. As mentioned, it is expected to come equipped with a more powerful V8 engine as well as some cosmetic changes.

Consumers can expect to see the 2023 Chevy Corvette available for purchase in the Spring of 2022. Although the 2022 Corvette will see the end of its production, those looking forward to the 2023 version will be more than happy to know they’re getting a more powerful and improved Corvette. It’s not certain whether GM will increase the price of the 2023 Corvette, but we can expect to see a starting MSRP of around $60,000 (plus destination fee). We’ll be staying tuned for more information.

The Latest Scoop On The 2022 Chevrolet 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, 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, January 24th, 2022 at 8:55 PM

2024 Chevy Blazer EV

The Chevrolet Blazer crossover is one of the most attractive SUVs in its segment, and perhaps in the car industry. The reason is likely that it borrows design elements from its cousin, the Camaro sports car. While it doesn’t embody the same rugged formation as the original, that hasn’t affected its ability to seduce new buyers.

For all that, there are some that wonder whether the current model will mirror the same impact with its electric version. General Motors Chair and CEO, Mary Bara, revealed at the CES (Consumer Electronics Show) that the Blazer’s internal combustion engine would soon retire, and in its place would be an electric powertrain for the 2024 model year, the same ringing true for the Equinox model.

While the company didn’t show any teaser images for the upcoming electric midsize SUV, it did however give us a sneak peek of the Equinox EV. In fact, car site, CarBuzz, used the Equinox teaser images to serve as inspiration for what they think the 2024 Blazer might look like. 

They added on charming design elements such as a full-width LED light bar with headlight clusters that fence off the core unique design piece. They also incorporated a ridged grille panel, a two-toned roof, and large wheels. Then, they added an adaptive version of the Equinox EV’s lighting grille, which joins each side of the vehicle at the same time a roof spoiler and roof rails are also included. There are even ultra-modern flush door handles that also correspond with the Chevrolet design style. 

Overall, there is an expectation that the automaker won’t veer off from its usual design cues for the upcoming Blazer. Rather, it’s probable that Chevrolet will take on their traditional styling elements while maintaining the feel of the current SUV design.

One should expect to see the sustainable 2024 Chevrolet Blazer in the spring of 2023 to complement other chargeable offerings like the Silverado EV. When General Motors revealed its new replacement for the Blazer at this year’s CES, they only divulged the expected reveal date and that it would be derived from the company’s Ultium platform.

Seeing that the tri-motor configuration supporting the GMC Hummer EV is currently only made for large vehicles, we’re guessing that the Blazer will inhabit single- and dual-motor options, with the second possibly offering an output of over 580 horsepower.

Several trims will also be offered, with one of them likely being an RS model, with some crossing their fingers that it will have more power and handling than other Chevy models, rather than just good looks. Regarding the base-level trim, it’s likely that it will be priced around $35,000, (plus destination fee), as the company is aiming to make electrics more affordable.

Newly Unveiled Chevy Silverado EV Sells Out Almost Immediately

By Justin | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevy dealers, Chevy Miami, Chevys Miami on Friday, January 21st, 2022 at 5:55 PM

Chevrolet recently unveiled its first electric vehicle, the Silverado EV. The all-new all-electric pickup had a stunning debut given the hype and excitement surrounding Chevy’s first EV pickup. The EV pickup was revealed at the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). There, fans and consumers got to get a firsthand look at Chevrolet’s Silverado EV. Chevy stated that there would be several trim levels coming, but for now, the Silverado EV launches as the RST First Edition. The price is a bit steep, but given the listed features and capabilities, the Silverado EV will easily compete with others like the F-150 Lightning. Many others seem to believe this as well given that the pickup sold out according to General Motor’s CEO Mary Barra. We’ll dive in further, but this is great news for Chevrolet.

Silverado EV Sold Out?

Chevrolet recently unveiled their all-new all-electric Silverado EV. The electric pickup was well received at the 2022 CES show. It was even more well-received when it opened for reservations. According to the GM CEO Mary Barra, the Silverado EV RST First Edition sold out almost immediately. Now, we’re not one to really cast doubt or suspicion, but one detail missing from the aforementioned statement is just how many First Edition pickups were made available. A common issue with reservation orders is that there are several details that can inflate the end number. One of these is the initial deposit needed to reserve the vehicle. Another is the fact that some consumers may cancel their reservations ahead of time. For the Silverado EV, many buyers only needed to put down $100 to make their reservation.

The Silverado EV RST First Edition starts at a hefty MSRP, $105,000 (plus destination fee). Chevrolet has yet to state exactly how many Silverado EVs it plans to build, but if the automaker is facing supply issues due to the global chip shortage, this number may be on the lower side. Regardless, the electric pickup looks fantastic. Chevrolet released a list of features and details so consumers can know what to expect. All Silverado EV trims will feature standard DC fast charging at up to 350 kWh.

The Silverado EV is expected to arrive in the fall of 2023. General Motors has confirmed that the RST trim will have 400 miles of range. Along with an exceptional mile range, the EV pickup will feature automatic adaptive air suspension, four-wheel steering, a multi-flex tailgate, and a 17-in LCD. The Silverado EV will be capable of towing up to 10,000 pounds with 1,300 pounds of payload. The RST trim will feature an optional wide open watts mode which can deliver 664 horsepower and 780lb-ft of torque. It’s clear Chevy did their best to equip the Silverado EV with the most powerful equipment and features. We’ll have to wait for more details, but according to Chevy, there will be other trims available some time in 2024 including a Work Truck trim that will start at $39,900 (plus destination fee).

Consumer Reports Pick Their Best Vehicles

The Chevrolet company has introduced a mid-cycle advancement for its 2022 Traverse SUV (also dubbed a refresh). This full-sized 4-door crossover utility vehicle (CUV), comes with a slew of enhancements and changes. Recently, the review site, Consumer Reports named the 2022 Chevy Traverse mid-sizer as a top performer in the establishment’s road tests.

Road tests from Consumer Reports involve over 50 individual evaluations, with the concluding road test score baked into the car’s Overall Score. Each car that goes through a road test from Consumer Reports receives a score out of 100 possible points, specifically with a higher score that indicates a greater performance.

Regarding the 2022 Chevy Traverse, it received a road test score ranking it 95 out of 100, making it stand between Kia’s Telluride model (97 points) and Porshe’s 718 Boxster (95 points) with reference to Consumer Reports’ best road test results. BMW was able to reach the top of the list for its 7 Series model, specifically with 99 points. Remarkably, the C8 Corvette came in third with 97 points.

The 2022 Traverse SUV was also given by Consumer’s a score ranking it four out of five, which regarded its acceleration performance, as well as four out of five in reference to the performance on its transmission and five out of five for braking. Emergency Handling was also ranked three out of five.

Even more so, Consumer Reports was quite captivated by just how comfortable this year’s Chevy Traverse is. It also regarded its tranquil interior, user-friendly infotainment, and rear seat reminder system. On the flip side, it did critique the car’s allocation of progressive safety features to the higher trims, the absence of extra support adjustments for the driver seat, and the manual sunshade for the available sunroof.

In case you forgot, the nameplate for the Chevrolet Traverse was originally supposed to get a mid-cycle improvement for the previous model year, however, due to issues relating to the coronavirus pandemic, the model pushed back its refresh for the 2022 model year.

Looking beneath the hood, the newest Chevrolet Traverse comes with a naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LFY gasoline engine. It’s rated at 310 horsepower at 6,800 rpm and 266 pound-feet of torque at 2,800 rpm, also connected to a 9-speed automatic transmission. Moreover, this car can be had with either front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive. Regarding its body, the Traverse crossover fits in with the parent company, General Motors (GM) C1 platform. Production of this car is located at GM’s Lansing Delta Township plant in Michigan.

The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV Reconceives What A Pickup Could Be

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 on Monday, January 10th, 2022 at 3:16 PM

Last week, Wednesday (January 5th), the Chevrolet company introduced their fully electric 2024 Silverado pickup truck, leaving many fans astounded with just how many changes this new model received from the inside-out. New offerings of this vehicle include:

  • An estimated range of 400-miles on a full charge for the Work Truck (WT) and RST.
  • Up to 664 horsepower with over 780 lb-ft of torque from the optional Wide Open Watts Mode on RST, allowing an estimated 0-60 mph time of fewer than 4.5 seconds.
  • Standard DC fast charging (reaching 350kW) on Work Truck and RST.
  • A max of 10.2kW of offboarding power on Work Truck and RST with optional gear.
  • Fit to 10,000 lbs of maximum trailering with up to 1,300 pounds of payload on RST.
  • Parent company, General Motors (GM) advanced Ultium EV Platform, the Silverado EV offers an incredible progressive combination of aptitude, performance and versatility, as well as advanced technologies that can develop the vehicle over time.

“Chevrolet has constantly revolutionized the Silverado franchise to make it the powerhouse it is today,” said Steve Hill, vice president of Chevrolet. “The Ultium Platform is a critical enabler of next-level pickup truck performance for both fleet and retail customers, whether they are currently driving a Silverado or are considering a pickup for the first time.”

Interested buyers should expect during the launch that the newest Silverado will be available in two configurations, such as the RST First Edition and a fleet-centered WT model. Each will have an extensive bundle of standard and optional safety features.

Charging Capabilities

The RST and WT have public DC fast charging capabilities maxing at 350kW allowing about 100 miles of range to be tacked on in 10 minutes, according to GM estimates. Additionally, after combining the optional accessory power bar, the 2024 Silverado’s PowerBase charging system has up to 10 outlets, proving a total of 10.2kW of fully electric power.

Performance and Efficiency

Clearly, the Silverado EV RST and WT models were designed which much thought and with an acute attention to detail, specifically when it comes to the overall functionality.

“We had no constraints when it came to designing the Silverado EV with dramatic style and flexible utility because we didn’t need to work around a traditional propulsion system,” said Phil Zak, executive director of Chevrolet Design. “The Ultium Platform allowed us to redefine what it means to offer expansive new storage and utility possibilities.”

The construction of the exterior from its proportions to its surfacing fully embodies the Silverado’s knack for providing power and overall athleticism. On the front end, the truck has been shaped to masterfully direct air down the side of the body, considerably reducing drag and turbulence. For this reason, this WT is estimated to have one of the lowerest drag coefficients of any available production model, specifically in the full-size pickup category. This helps in enabling the impressive range.

In terms of space, Chevrolet has implemented an eTrunk, which is a lockable compartment located in front of the vehicle, that provides enough space for a multitude of personal items, big or small.

Owing to the Multi-Flex Midgate on the RST, the 5-ft and 11-inch bed of storage capacity is maximized. This is because the Multi-Flex provides a little over 9 feet of storage between the cab and the tailgate when the Midgate is open.

There are also four configurations available from the 40/60 second-row seat, which enables owners to haul equipment while still making room for a passenger in the back row. In addition to the RST’s optional Multi-Flex Tailgate, this model allows up to 10 ft and 10 inches of load floor and storage capability. Additionally, there is an available tonneau cover that allows large items to be loaded into a storage compartment that is fully lockable and weatherproof.

When To Expect Chevy’s New Pickup

The 2024 Silverado EV is expected to debut by the spring of 2023 for the WT model, while the RST is expected to arrive in the fall of that year. When that time comes, be sure to make your purchase at Miami Lakes Automall. We carry a wide range of vehicles from the Chevrolet brand in a variety of different styles and prices.

2022 Chevrolet Suburban Receives Changes

By Justin | Posted in Uncategorized on Friday, January 7th, 2022 at 2:07 PM
2021-chevy-suburban

The 2022 Chevrolet Suburban will be receiving several new changes and updates for the 2022 model year. Chevrolet has been steadily ramping up its vehicles for the new year with the latest driver-assist and safety features. Chevrolet is hoping to keep consumers happy despite the ongoing chip shortage which has led to increased MSRPs all around. Thankfully, Chevy has been able to navigate and maneuver around the shortage and still provide the best-equipped vehicles. Chevy plans to build heavy-duty Suburban models for the United States Army, so it makes sense that the automaker is ensuring the latest technology and features make it through. We’ll dive in and see what Chevy has in store for 2022, but given their track record, it’s set to be some exciting features.

Chevrolet Updates 2022 Suburban

The 2022 Chevy Suburban serves as the 12th generation family-sized SUV. For the 2022 model year, Chevrolet will be making several changes and updates both inside and outside the Suburban. For its exterior, the 2022 Suburban will see the deletion of two colors and the addition of three new hues. Inside the large SUV, Chevrolet will be adding some new safety features as well as improving the infotainment system. There will also be some new package features such as an electronic limited-slip differential for the off-road package. For engine choices, Chevrolet will offer a 5.3L V8 capable of 355 horsepower and 383lb-ft of torque. There will also be a 6.2L V8 capable of 420 horsepower and 460lb-ft and a 3.0L Duramax diesel engine that’s capable of 277 horsepower and 460lb-ft of torque.

The 2022 Chevy Suburban will see the addition of several features. One of these includes rear park assist which was previously standard on all trims except for the Premier and High Country. Chevrolet will be replacing the feature with front and rear park assist and it will come standard on all trim levels. Reverse automatic braking will now be available on the Premier and High Country trims.

Inside the 2022 Chevy Suburban, consumers will note a new 10.2-inch Chevrolet Infotainment 3 Premium screen system. There’s also a revision to the transmission.

Chevy Against Chevy! The 2022 Silverado vs. The 2022 Colorado

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, chevy silverado, Chevy Silverado Miami, Chevys Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Monday, January 3rd, 2022 at 8:12 PM

The Chevrolet company is known for its ability to produce affordable and stylish vehicles, especially when regarding its SUVs and trucks. Two of its most popular models are the Silverado and the Colorado pickups. The foremost is the largest of the two, serving as a full-sized pickup as opposed to the Colorado’s mid-size frame.

There are also many advantages that these two Chevy trucks have over the other, especially for the 2022 model year. Let’s explore a bit more about what makes them similar and what makes them different.

2022 Chevrolet Silverado

The 2022  Chevrolet Silverado is new and improved, bringing along with it a refreshed exterior and interior style. The pickup can be personalized with regular, double, and crew cab layouts. There are also options for cargo boxes, specifically: short, standard, and long beds. Choices for powertrains also range from an entry-level 2.7-liter 4-cylinder with an 8-speed automatic transmission, a 5.3-liter V8, a 6.2-liter V8, and the 3.0-liter turbocharged diesel 6-cylinder engine, which all come with a 10-speed automatic.

The diesel engine shows that it’s one bad mother with its towing capabilities, as its injection of power makes it possible to tug up to 13,000 lbs. On top of this, the powertrain can be had with either rear- or four-wheel-drive.

If you’re looking for a little more adventure, shoppers can opt for the new off-roading ZR2 trim. Upgrades on this model encompass shocks from Multimatic, front and rear locking differentials, and augmented bumpers and skid plates. This ZR2 version also uses 33-inch all-terrain tires.

Another thing that distinguishes the Silverado apart from its siblings is the availability of parent company’s, General Motors’ (GM) Super Cruise system, a semi-autonomous driving system, which specifically has been tuned to work while towing on the Silverado. It is worth noting, however, that this feature will on be available on the top-ranking High Country model.

2022 Chevrolet Colorado

The mid-size 2022 Colorado may be a bit smaller but only expands in terms of its features. Starting with its excellent list of powertrains, two cab configurations, and cargo boxes. This truck also has the best towing in its class, with 7,700 lbs, which is achieved when it’s matched with the 2.8-liter Duramax Diesel engine. Rounding off the gasoline offerings are the 2.0-liter inline-4 and a 3.6-liter V6, which also have two- and four-wheel drive systems.

The Colorado also has an off-roading pickup of its own, the Z71. This model comes with an automatic locking rear differential, an off-road suspension, hill descent control, and all-terrain tires. The new Trailboss Package is also an option for 4WD versions of the LT and Z71 models. Skidplates, an off-road appearance package, along with a front 10-inch leveling kit come with the kit, of which there is currently a shortage of.

The ZR2 can tackle rough and tough terrain with its locking front differential, high-performance Multimatic shocks, four-wheel drive, off-road front fascia, and a taller and wider stance for elevated off-road capabilities. Interested buyers can also opt for ZR2’s Bison Edition, which was made through the partnership with American Expedition Vehicles. This optional package even furthers the off-road capabilities. 

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

The 2022 Chevrolet Silverado and 2022 Colorado are both highly competent and adept in their own right, with the former being skilled in providing engine choices, three cab possibilities and three box lengths, towing and payload, while the latter is masterful with providing a highly comfortable ride, a wide choice of engines, great fuel economy and a lower price ($25,000* vs. Silverado’s $32,000*).

The winner is truly up to you and your particular preference in size and the features that you value the most. Regardless of what you choose, when the time comes to make your purchase on your favorite Chevy vehicle, be sure to do it at Miami Lakes Automall. We carry a wide range of vehicles from the brand, including the Silverado and Colorado.

2022 Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe to Receive New Changes

By Justin | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, December 30th, 2021 at 7:08 PM

Chevrolet will be making some new changes and improvements to the 2022 Chevy Suburban and Tahoe. The two family-sized SUVs have been the recipient of a series of improvements over the years including new trims and performance packages. Now it seems Chevrolet will be making some additional improvements for the two large SUVs for the new 2022 model year. These improvements and changes will consist of new features which will improve the overall capability of the 2022 Suburban and Tahoe. We’ll dive in and see exactly what Chevrolet will be adding to the family-sized SUVs.

2022 Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe See Improvements

For the new 2022 model year, Chevrolet will be making several changes and improvements to the 2022 Chevy Suburban and Tahoe. Both family-sized SUVs have seen minor improvements over the years, but now Chevy will be adding some additional features. The first of these features will be one that was removed due to the ongoing chip shortage. Thankfully, Chevrolet has been able to work through the shortage. For the 2022 model year, Chevy will be bringing back the automatic engine stop/start feature for many of its vehicles including the Suburban, Tahoe, and GMC Yukon. Vehicles produced starting December 13th and on will come equipped with the feature. The automatic stop/start feature switches the vehicle off when it comes to a stop, then it restarts the engine when the driver takes their foot off the brake again. This helps drastically reduce fuel consumption and emissions.

The other change coming to the 2022 Chevy lineup will be a new 10-speed automatic transmission. This transmission will be fitted to either the 5.3L V8 or the 6.2L V8 gas engine. It will be paired with Chevrolet’s controlled overdrive as well as a traction select system that offers towing and haul modes. It should be noted that those vehicles equipped with the Duramax 3.0L turbodiesel engine will still use the old GM 10-speed transmission. About the new transmission, a GM spokesperson said, “the new gearbox allows our manufacturing and dealer teams to more easily align the specific calibration needed for the transmission and can enable OTA updates in the future.”

GM will be moving toward over-the-air (OTA) updates with their new Vehicle Intelligence Platform. Many automakers have been working to provide this service for consumers as it allows auto companies to provide updates that fix bugs and improve performance. It’s good to see Chevy adding features and improving aspects like its gearbox. We’re excited for the new 2022 Suburban and Tahoe and can’t wait to see what else Chevy has in store.

Chevrolet to Make Changes to 2022 Silverado Engine

By Justin | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, December 23rd, 2021 at 7:01 PM

Chevrolet will be adding a new engine to the 2022 Chevy Silverado. This comes after the full-size pickup received a pretty significant makeover for the 2022 model year. This makeover included an improved cabin, a new ZR2 off-road trim, and a boost in torque. Chevrolet has been focusing on producing electric vehicles, similar to most other automakers, but it’s good to see them updating their current lineup. The all-electric Silverado has been teased for a while, but Chevrolet is making sure that it has all the capabilities it needs to compete with competitors like Ford and Tesla. For now, we’ll be focusing on the 2022 Silverado and seeing what changes Chevrolet has in store for the new model year. We’ll still be keeping our ears open for more information about new models, but the Silverado is one of Chevy’s best-selling pickups so the changes should be pretty substantial. 

2022 Chevy Silverado to Get New Engine

The 2022 Chevrolet Silverado recently received a substantial update and makeover. The full-sized pickup saw an increase in its interior cabin quality along with a new off-road-oriented trim, the ZR2. The 2022 Silverado also saw a boost in its torque. Now Chevrolet will be adding a new engine for the pickup. This will be the turbocharged 2.7L four-cylinder which is set to replace the base 4.3L V6. The new engine apparently impressed Chevrolet engineers so much that they had no choice but to offer it to consumers. 

The 2022 Silverado will now come equipped with a 2.7L four-cylinder engine. The LT Trail Boss trim will also see its 5.3L V8 engine replaced with this new four-cylinder. The new 2.7L generates less horsepower than the V8 (310 versus 355), but the changes in output allow it to have more torque (420 versus 383lb-ft) which helps improve towing capacity. This new engine will help improve the overall capability of the Silverado. The new engine also comes with an EPA rating of 19 mpg in the city and 22 on the highway. Compared to the V8’s 16 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway, the new 2.7L wins out both in terms of torque and fuel economy. 

Fans of the 2022 Silverado can expect to see the pickup on dealership lots in the Spring of 2022. Chevrolet has not commented on any price changes, but the automaker will still allow consumers to opt for a 3.0L turbo-diesel Duramax engine on the Trail Boss trim.

Chevy Silverado EV to Enter Production in Early 2023

By Justin | Posted in Uncategorized on Tuesday, December 14th, 2021 at 7:54 PM

General Motors (GM) has been working on its own electric vehicles for some time. The all-electric Silverado and Hummer EV have been stirring up a lot of excitement given their apparent features. The 2022 GMC Hummer EV will be the first electric vehicle to go on sale, and the Silverado EV will follow a year later. According to GM, the Silverado EV will enter production in early 2023. The all-electric truck will make its first public debut at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January (2022). The pickup is slated to go on sale in the latter half of 2023. 

Electric Silverado to Soon Enter Production

The 2023 Chevy Silverado will be built on General Motors’ Ultium battery pack and electric drivetrain. This is the same system used for the GMC Hummer EV. In fact, GM plans to also use this system for its other upcoming EVs like the Cadillac Lyriq. Using this new system, GM hopes to attain 400 miles of range for the Silverado. If this proves obtainable and feasible, GM may see itself rocketing ahead of competitors given that range issues are one of the bigger deterrents for consumers looking at EVs. Despite the issues with range, it seems that consumers are still showing a lot of interest in electric vehicles. Other automakers like Ford have seen continued interest in their electric vehicles as evidenced by their reservation orders. GM will have to play a bit of catch-up here, but with constant attention and focus, they can make themselves known as one of the go-to industry leaders for EVs.

The all-electric Silverado pickup will be built at GM’s EV plant Factory Zero in Detroit, Michigan. The Hummer EV will also be built at the same location as Cruise Origin, GM’s autonomous shuttle. For the Silverado, GM will be planning to offer both a consumer and fleet version of the electric pickup. The pickup will feature all-wheel steering and it will come with a fixed-glass roof which is a design element many automakers have been opting for in newer vehicles. Upon its release, the Silverado may have some tough competition from automakers like Ford, Tesla, and even Rivian. It doesn’t seem like GM will be backing down though. 

The 2023 Chevy Silverado will be one of GM’s primary flagship vehicles. The automaker will also be spending at least $35 billion on electrification and electric vehicles. We’ll have to wait for more information at the CES show, but GM CEO Mary Barra will be speaking during a keynote speech so we should learn some important details about GM’s plans for the future of EVs.

2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV Review

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 Monday, December 13th, 2021 at 2:14 PM

New Features

The larger sibling of the Chevrolet Bolt hatchback is finally on the market in the form of a suave and sexy subcompact SUV. This new model obviously provides much more interior space, as well as a style that is more adventurous. Let’s explore all that there is to know about the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV.

Engine and Performance

The EUV crossover only has one powertrain option and that’s an 150-kilowatt permanent magnet electric motor, which gets its juice from a liquid-cooled 65-kWh lithium-ion battery fixed low in the chassis.

It takes 7 hours for this Chevy SUV to fully “refuel” from a  240-volt Level 2 charger, and even longer with the brand’s 120-volt charger used at home. According to the automaker, you can get 4 miles of range within an hour of using the home charger, while 

You might prefer to get the available 240-volt DC Fast Charger, which will provide 100 miles of range in about 30 minutes. This will be especially useful during long trips.

Exterior

Aesthetically, the 2022 Bolt EUV mirrors the hatchback EV, but looks are deceiving, as these vehicles don’t share the same mechanical features.

In the front, the raised fascia and reshaped grille of the EUV exude the characteristics of an electric vehicle, while the inclined character lines on the body sides create some charm, giving the impression of motion, even while it’s in park. While this Bolt SUV is a compact, it still looks strong and muscular, particularly due to the short front and rear overhangs, as well as the wheels tuned out wide to the corners.

The front and rear lighting also uses LEDs, while the thin high-fixed headlight strips couple as sequential turn signals. Standard roof rails are augmented by the quasi-SUV feel of the latest Bolt.

Interior

As with the mini Bolt, the larger sibling is plentiful with front headroom and even more so with its backseat, as it has 3 more inches of legroom. Cargo room amounts to 16.3 cubic feet and 56.9 cubic feet with the rear seats folded.

Other improvements for the redesigned Bolt include more comfort, improved seat, and more infotainment options. In regards to the dashboard, there is a revamped 8.0-inch color gauge cluster and a 10.2-inch touchscreen with a more comprehensive interface. On top of this, there is a flat-bottom steering wheel and a new electronic gear shifter with toggles and buttons.

Standards and Options

Standard in-car features include LED front and rear lighting, cruise control, and a dual-level charging cord that hosts charging at home. The automaker backs the standard installation costs of a Level 2 charger compatible at buyers homes.

There is also an impressive suite of safety technologies encompassing automatic emergency braking (with pedestrian detection), lane-departure warning, and lane-keeping assist.

For a little extra doe, buyers can enjoy more conveniences such as a panoramic sunroof, wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, and Super Cruise, which can be found on the EUV Premiere. Additional options include rear cross-traffic alert and a 360-degree surround-view camera, plus wireless smartphone charging and a 4G WiFi hotspot. You can also order apps like Alexa and Spotify.

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

The Chevrolet Bolt EUV has a starting price of $33,000 (plus destination fee). When the time comes to purchase this SUV, be sure to do it at Miami Lakes Automall. We have a wide range of vehicles from the automaker ranging in different trims and prices.

2022 Chevy Blazer Given ‘Recommended’ Rating by Consumer Reports

By Justin | Posted in Uncategorized on Friday, December 10th, 2021 at 12:00 PM

The 2022 Chevy Blazer was recently given a ‘Recommended’ rating from the non-profit organization Consumer Reports. The non-profit dedicates itself to independent product testing and consumer-oriented research. Last year, Consumer Reports gave the 2021 Chevy Blazer a negative rating and advised consumers to avoid the midsize SUV. It seems Chevrolet listened to consumer complaints and drastically improved the Chevy Blazer as Consumer Reports ranked the SUV third in its midsize SUV segment. We’ll take a look at some of the changes Chevy made to the Blazer as well as what metrics Consumer Reports used for their rating.

2022 Chevy Blazer Recommended

The Chevy Blazer was reintroduced in 2019 as an all-new midsize crossover. The 2022 Blazer comes as a fifth-generation vehicle and as such, Chevrolet made sure to provide consumers with the latest in technology and driver-assist features. The 2022 Chevy Blazer comes equipped with either a 2.0L four-cylinder engine capable of 228 horsepower and 258lb-ft of torque, or a naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 engine capable of 308 horsepower and 270lb-ft of torque. The midsize SUV rides on the GM C1 platform and comes equipped with advanced safety features like forward-collision warnings and automatic emergency braking.

According to Consumer Reports, the 2022 Chevy Blazer scored an overall score of 82, placing the midsize SUV within the top three of the organization’s Midsize Sport-utility Vehicle segment. On the road test, the Blazer scored 83 out of 100. For predicted reliability, the Blazer scored four out of five. For predicted owner satisfaction, Consumer Reports gave the SUV three out of five. Safety features were ranked standard and fuel economy was rated at 13 mpg in the city, 27 mpg on the highway, and 19 mpg overall. 

Consumer Reports praised the 2022 Chevy Blazer for its powertrain and drivetrain. The midsize SUV had more than adequate acceleration and braking. It also had a very responsive transmission as handling was precise and nimble. Inside the cabin, Consumer Reports noted that owners will enjoy a quiet and comfortable interior. As for criticisms, Consumer Reports stated that visibility was poor at times given the structure of the vehicle. Overall, it seems the 2022 Chevy Blazer is better than it’s ever been. The midsize SUV offers smooth driving, precise handling, and it comes equipped with the latest safety and driver-assist features. The 2022 Chevy Blazer starts at an MSRP of $33,400 (plus destination fee).

Chevrolet Requires The Traditional Route For Buying The 2022 Silverado ZR2

By melanie s | Posted in Chevrolet, 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 Miami, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Monday, December 6th, 2021 at 3:25 PM

Chevrolet announced that they will not accept reservations or pre-orders for their upcoming Silverado ZR2 truck. According to an interview with GM Authority editor Alex Luft, Director of Chevrolet Truck Marketing, Kelly MacDonald, the 2022 off-reading vehicle will launch through the traditional dealer allocation and launch processes.

This particular approach is different from GM’s other launch strategies for various other specialty vehicles, like the 2022 GMC Hummer EV Pickup, 2023 Cadillac Lyriq, and 2022 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing and 2022 CT5-V Blackwing. This restriction on pre-orders for the newest Silverado variant means that buyers will be able to order and essentially purchase the truck from their dealer as they would a regular Silverado, especially since the dealer has the appropriate allocation that enables its order to be accepted by the factory.

On September 9th, Chevrolet introduced the 2022 Silverado ZR2 as the new flagship adventurous model in the lineup of their light-duty pickups, marking it as the first that the ZR2 badge was featured on the Silverado. As with the mid-sized Colorado ZR2, the off-roading Silverado consists of progressive Multimatic DSSV dampers with three separate spool valves and three fluid flow chambers for better damping control. These springs work alongside the dampers to provide maximum front and rear suspension travel. At the same time, front and rear e-lockers further improve the vehicle’s loose surface traction and rock crawling capabilities.

There is perhaps one particular element of the ZR2 that stands out among other Silverado’s, and that is its special front fascia, which involves a high-approach steel front bumper with changeable end caps that provide a bit more intensity to the exterior design, while simultaneously making way an augmented 31.8-degree approach angle. Additional off-road-centered gear consists of a set of distinctive 18-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory tires, as well as surplus underbody skid plates. At last, the dual exhaust system has been reformed, involving tucked-down exhaust tips that stop ahead of the rear bumper, lessening the chance that it will get dented or smashed when going off-road or performing rock crawling activities.

Supplementary exterior add-ons for the Silverado variant include several ZR2 badges on the outer body, a new black hood insert, a special grille coupled with lighting, and a flow-tie emblem with a red inlay.

GM’s sole engine option will be their naturally-aspirated 6.2L L87 V8 engine, which has an output of 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque paired to the automaker’s 10-speed automatic transmission and 4WD. Another standard is the new Terrain Mode setting, which gives way for one-pedal driving, ensuring precise control for rock crawling. Max payload gets a rating of 1,440 lbs, while the maximum conventional trailer weight gets a rating of 8,900 lbs.

The upcoming ZR2 will be available solely in the 4-door Crew Cab, Short Bed body style. It will also encompass the remodeled 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 interior, along with the standard 13.4-inch-diagonal color touchscreen and 12.3-inch-diagonal customizable digital instrument cluster.

While at the 2021 SEMA show, Dom Lester, General Motors chief engineer for Performance Variants and Motorsports, discussed with GM Authority’s Alex Luft that the ZR2 was constructed using knowledge obtained from racing a ZR2 prototype (near-production) in the Best in the Desert racing series with the Hall Racing team, and from testing samples in the famous Moab desert in Utah.

“Chevrolet has been competing on some of the most grueling, toughest off-road courses with a prototype Silverado ZR2 in the Best in the Desert race series,” said Lester. “We applied what we learned in racing and Moab testing to the new ZR2 to offer a supremely capable and confidence-inspiring package, but one that doesn’t beat you up on the highway with its ride quality. It’s equally capable and comfortable.”

GM Authority reported last week the newest 2022 Silverado’s timeframe for its launch. This animated truck will enter production in February of the 2022 calendar year for the Regular and Crew Cab, while the Double Cab will enter production in March.

When the time comes to purchase the outdoor Silverado ZR2, be sure to do it at Miami Lakes Automall. We carry a wide range of vehicles from the brand, ranging in various shapes and prices.

2022 Chevy Equinox v. 2022 Chevy Trailblazer: Which One is Right for You?

By Justin | Posted in Uncategorized on Friday, December 3rd, 2021 at 4:25 PM

The Chevy Equinox has been one of Chevrolet’s best-selling SUVs. The compact SUV offers an affordable choice for consumers favoring ample cargo and passenger space. It also comes with the latest safety and technology features so drivers can enjoy a smooth driving experience. The Chevy Trailblazer is another SUV that offers similar features as the Equinox. Smaller than the Equinox, the Trailblazer poses a more affordable alternative to the Equinox. It’s a subcompact SUV with the latest technology and safety features. Both SUVs can appear quite similar, so we’ll dive in and compare the two SUVs to see which is the more optimal choice.

2022 Chevy Equinox

The 2022 Chevy Equinox has seen a lot of success since its release. Chevrolet provided consumers with an affordable and spacious compact SUV that’s engaging to drive. Starting at $25,800 (plus destination fee), the 2022 Equinox features a 1.5L turbocharged four-cylinder engine that’s capable of 170 horsepower and 203lb-ft of torque. The engine can come paired with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, and it uses a six-speed automatic transmission. Although 170 horsepower may not seem like much, it’s enough to keep the Equinox going. The compact SUV can even tow up to 1,500 pounds so it’s perfect for family trips.

For 2022, the Equinox received some styling updates including a wider and more aggressive grille. The rear also looks more rugged and with higher trims, owners can opt for bigger wheels and a gloss-black grille. Inside the compact SUV, owners will note a comfortable interior. With 63.9 cubic feet of space with the seats folded, owners can have ample room for cargo or equipment. The touchscreen is modern and comes compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Regarding safety, the 2022 Equinox features forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warnings, and lane-keeping assist. Higher-level trims come equipped with driver-assist features like adaptive cruise control. 

2022 Chevy Trailblazer

The 2022 Chevy Trailblazer is one of the newest members of the Chevrolet family. Starting at $21,600 (plus destination fee), the Trailblazer comes as a subcompact SUV that’s roomy and engaging. The subcompact features 54.4 cubic feet of cargo space but despite this, it remains roomy and spacious inside. The 2022 Trailblazer makes use of a 1.2L turbocharged three-cylinder engine that’s capable of 137 horsepower and 162lb-ft of torque. There’s also a second engine option which is the 1.3L turbocharged three-cylinder engine capable of 155 horsepower and 174lb-ft of torque. The subcompact SUV also comes paired with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. 

Looking at the 2022 Trailblazer, owners will note a sportier exterior compared to the Equinox. Its angular lines and two-tone roof add to this sporty element. Inside the subcompact SUV, owners will note a 7-inch touchscreen compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The interior is comfortable and higher trims add a touch of luxury with leather material. Regarding safety, the 2022 Trailblazer features Chevy Safety Assist suite which includes automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, lane departure warnings, forward-collision alerts, and automatic high beams. 

The Verdict

The 2022 Chevy Equinox and 2022 Chevy Trailblazer are two great SUVs. The Equinox is the larger of the two, and as such, it comes with a higher price tag. This increased price gets drivers a larger interior cabin and a stronger engine. If space isn’t too much of a concern, nor power and speed, the 2022 Trailblazer comes out as the more optimal choice, given its more affordable price. Both SUVs feature similar safety and driver-assist features so really it comes down to preference.

The Chevrolet Blazer Is Our Automotive White Night

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, November 29th, 2021 at 1:52 PM

The Chevrolet Blazer made its first introduction into the car market in 2018 and proved to be a massive hit among consumers across the globe. In the past two years, the automaker has seen a considerable increase in sales. Issues regarding intense demand in combination with the current global chip shortage, have caused major delays and disruptions regarding supply issues, however, GM China is still promoting new special edition cars, and a new one has just entered the automotive stratosphere.

Chevy’s new mid-size crossover is a newcomer to the Chinese market and is counting on this new exclusive trim, the White Night Edition, to help invite more sales. So far, initial reactions have been positive, but the question is “Is this actually a new trim level or simply an appearance package?”

The upcoming Chevrolet Blazer White Night Edition, which is derived from the RS trim level, made its introduction last week at the 2021 Guangzhou International Motor Show and displayed exceptional exterior styling built around the USDM Midnight Edition package. This new range-topping SUV crossover will only have a traditional seven-seat configuration available. The outer body of the White Night Edition involves a classy black and white color scheme.

The base of the car is smothered in a cool and fresh Pearl White, while the rest of the car encompasses black highlights and fun minute details like blacked-out pillars. The White Night Edition drives on a set of 21-inch black wheels that really helps to bring the whole design together.

The inside of the latest Blazer also collaborates with the RS model and involves red and silver trim details, along with upgraded technologies, such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. Beneath the hood, you’ll discover GM’s mild-hybrid powertrain which encompasses a turbocharged 2.0-liter LSY four-cylinder engine and an electric motor with a 48-volt battery. The intricate combination of mechanics produces an excellent output of 233 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. All four wheels are powered up through the 9-speed automatic transmission.

General standard one should expect in a base LT Blazer is an 8-inch infotainment system with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Amazon Alexa, and a Wi-Fit hotspot, dual-zone climate control, an HD backup camera, and the Chevy Safety Assist package, which includes automatic emergency braking with front pedestrian braking, lane-keeping assist with lane-departure warning, a following-distance indicator, forward-collision alert, and automatic high-beams.

Optional features on upper trims involve a hands-free power liftgate, an automatic heated steering wheel, and a navigation system.

The White Night Edition is now ready to order with the MSRP of this car amounting to 333,900 CNY ($52,285), including destination fees. Those who prefer their new 2022 Blazer fully loaded should be prepared to spend nearly $60,000, (plus destination fee) in North America.

When the time comes to purchase your spanking new 2022 Chevrolet Blazer, with the White Night Edition or not, be sure to do it at Miami Lakes Automall. We carry a wide range of vehicles from the brand ranging in various shapes and sizes. Those who are interested in this vehicle or any of our other models can simply view our online new car inventory and chat with a representative for further assistance.

By Justin | Posted in Uncategorized on Friday, November 26th, 2021 at 5:12 PM

Chevrolet’s 2022 Corvette was recently ranked among Car and Driver’s 10Best list. The luxury sports car was acknowledged for its high performance and affordability. This marks the 23rd time the Corvette has been recognized by Car and Driver, so clearly Chevrolet knows what it takes to deliver a luxury sports car. Chevrolet recently updated the 8th generation Corvette so it comes equipped with the latest driver-assist features like Magnetic Selective Ride Control and Driver Mode Selector. The luxury sports car also looks great with its narrow styling and now it comes with even more customization options than before. At an MSRP of $62,195 (plus destination fee), the 2022 Corvette is an affordable and captivating luxury sports car. 

2022 Chevy Corvette Ranked Among 10Best

The 2022 Chevy Corvette is a great luxury sports car with a reasonable starting price. At a starting MSRP of $62,195 (plus destination fee), the Corvette offers consumers a grand experience. Chevrolet offers more in terms of customization and driver-assist features so drivers can get the best out of their Corvette. The 2022 Corvette comes equipped with a naturally aspirated 6.2L LT2 V8 engine that’s capable of 495 horsepower and 470lb-ft of torque. This comes with a dual-clutch automatic which can enable 60 mph in 2.8 seconds. Speed is never an issue with the Corvette and handing is precise and sharp. The new Magnetic Selective Ride Control feature also serves well in keeping control even at the highest of speeds.

Inside the 2022 Corvette, drivers will note the fighter-jet-inspired cockpit. From the base level trim to higher levels, the Corvette sees a multitiered and multicolored leather trim. The dash swirls toward the driver which gives a heightened feeling of control. The raced-designed steering wheel comes with large paddle shifters, audio controls, and a Z Mode button. Chevrolet expands customization further by allowing owners to customize the interior from seatbelts to the brake-caliper paint. The engine sits behind the driver and though it can obscure visibility at times, it doesn’t harm practicality.  In fact, it helps stabilize the Corvette as the weight is distributed with a rear bias. 

Overall, the 2022 Corvette is a great choice for a luxury sports car. It comes affordable and offers the latest in technology and driver-assist features. For those looking to go fast with sharp precision, the Corvette proves a solid option.

Chevrolet Debuts its 650-Horsepower Beast

By Justin | Posted in Chevrolet, Chevrolet dealer, Chevrolet Dealers, Chevy, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership, Chevy Miami, Chevys Miami on Friday, November 12th, 2021 at 2:54 PM

Chevrolet showcased one of its off-road concepts at the 2021 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Named the Beast, this four-door pickup looked mighty and rugged. It’s based on the Chevy Silverado but it comes in much more powerful and capable than the average pickup. Equipped with a V8 engine that’s capable of 650 horsepower, Chevy’s new Beast is sure to pose a threat to the competition. This concept pickup utilizes the same engine as the Corvette so you know it’s got some great specs. We’ll dive deeper into the concept vehicle and see what Chevy’s got in store for those looking for one beast of a pickup. 

Chevy Debuts Beast Off-Road Concept

Chevrolet recently debuted its Beast off-road concept pickup at the 2021 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. The domineering pickup looked quite impressive with its 37-inch mud-terrain tires. Mounted inside of these huge tires were 20-inch beadlock wheels. As for the engine, the Beast pickup utilizes a supercharged 6.2L LT4 V8 engine that’s capable of 650 horsepower. The engine comes paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission and a four-wheel-drive system with a two-speed transfer case. This concept pickup also comes equipped with Brembo brakes. 

The Beast pickup is based on the Chevy Silverado. It is a four-door truck with two spare tires in the bed. The concept pickup stands tall and empowered with its 126.9-inch wheelbase and 13.5 inches of ground clearance. The pickup is almost an oversized version of the Silverado as it comes in almost 10 inches wider than the standard Silverado. For this feat, the name Beast is quite appropriate. In addition to its large stature, the concept pickup comes equipped with LED lights, skid plates, and an off-road suspension setup. Control arms come installed in the front along with adjustable dampers with external reservoirs. At the back of the vehicle is a live axle. 

Riding inside this beast of a pickup, drivers will note two 7-inch LCD screen monitors. These provide real-time performance data about the pickup like pitch and roll. For safety, drivers can buckle themselves in with a four-point harness while sitting in the Recaro performance seats. Chevy really went all out with this concept pickup. Its large exterior makes it reminiscent of a video game and perhaps that’s where the inspiration came from. Drivers will certainly feel like the main character as they traverse the toughest of terrains. We’ll have to wait for more information but for the ultimate off-road enthusiast, the Chevy Beast looks unchallenged.

5 Sensational Features of The 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe

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 Tahoe in Miami, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Thursday, November 11th, 2021 at 3:34 PM

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that SUVs and crossovers have all but taken over the car market, and each year this interest in these types of vehicles grows even more, with the Chevrolet Tahoe serving as one of the main leads in its segment. This full-sized SUV is back for the 2022 model year, and it’s introducing a more powerful engine and a slew of new and exciting features. Here are 5 Sensational Features of The 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe!

Expanded 6.2-Liter V8 Engine

The base engine on the upcoming Tahoe is a 5.3-liter V8, which has an incredible output of 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. Then for daredevils, Chevrolet also provides its Tahoe buyers with the option of a larger 6.2-liter V8 that produces a magnificent 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. Even still, the car still manages to get a combined average of 21 mpg.

Transparent Trailer View

Due to the length and weight distribution of a trailer, towing these campers can prove to be quite difficult for driving, and even more so with the blocked view. In the same way as its kinsman, the GMC Sierra, the new Tahoe implements a translucent trailer view system, which ensures that the driver can see through the trailer by the use of attachable cameras. This is together with the 13 available camera views surrounding the vehicles, making dead angles virtually impossible when driving.

Seamless Infotainment System With Google services

The Chevrolet company is very adept in providing advanced in-cabin features, particularly when it comes to infotainment. This is even more expected in its luxury vehicles like the Tahoe. For this model year, this concept is taken even further with its effective stand-alone technology that necessitates very little connection with your phone due to the built-in Google functionality. Some examples include Google Assistant, Google Maps, and Google Play.

Android users will also appreciate the Android Auto systems, which enables one to download his or her apps into the infotainment system, making them accessible through the 10.2-inch touchscreen. This helps to alleviate the distraction of messing with your phone while zooming on the freeway.

Magnetic Ride Control (MRC)

The Magnetic Ride Control (MRC) is an incredibly innovative technology of the automaker. This system adapts the shock-absorbing resistance of the Tahoe to the road condition in real-time. This is contrary to regular mechanical components used in traditional suspension and shock absorbers, the MRC uses monotube dampers full of magnetorheological fluid.

The density of the fluid either increases or decreases according to what is required in the reaction to the wheel forces while driving on various terrains and handled by a set of sensors and an electronic control unit. The MRC is tremendously swift and precise, making driving in any condition stress-free.

8,400-Pound Towing Capacity

The 2022 Tahoe’s 6.2-liter V8 engine isn’t just fast, it’s also quite mighty, with its towing ability amounting to a maximum of 8,400 lbs. A capacity like this, taking long camping trips all summer long will become like second nature.

The 2022 Chevy Blazer: What’s Staying and What’s Going

By melanie s | Posted in 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, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Tuesday, November 2nd, 2021 at 1:37 PM

The 2022 Chevrolet Blazer is marketed as the fourth model year of the revamped mid-size SUV, and brings along several updates and changes.

Model Line

Concerning the model line, the Blazer has seen a reconfiguration with its trim levels, thanks to the elimination of the entry-level L trim and the second-level 1LT model from the lineup. With this in mind, here are the current trims left for our choosing.

  • LT (2LT, 3LT)
  • RS (1RS)
  • Premier (0HD)

Exterior

Looking outward, the upcoming Blazer also retires two exterior color options, together with the addition of two new shades.

New Exterior Colors:

  • Nitro Yellow Metallic
  • Blue Glow Metallic

Deleted Exterior Colors:

  • Bright Blue Metallic
  • Midnight Metallic

What’s more, the addition of the available black two-toned roof is available for certain colors on the LT and RS trims. There’s also a change to the accessibility with some of these colors, such as with Cayenne Orange Metallic, now only available on LT’s. 

On top of this, two wheel sets have been removed in favor of three new wheel options.

New Wheels:

  • 20-inch Gloss Black aluminum wheels (QH4)
  • 20-inch Medium Android machined-face aluminum wheels (SUU)
  • 20-inch Gloss Black aluminum wheels (S1S) (LPO-level item)

Deleted Wheels:

  • 20-inch Medium Android machined face aluminum wheels (Q9Z)
  • Standard on Premier models
  • 20-inch Gloss Black aluminum wheels (S2D)
  • LPO-level item available on LT and Premier models

Every Blazer now has available black lug nuts, along with optional ones (not including the RS trim). These optional lug nuts and wheel lock kits are dealer-installed (LPO-level items). RPO codes for the black front and rear bowties are also receiving a change, as the B94 is standing in place of the SFZ.

The Premier trim is also getting a slew of changes, including alterations regarding the treatment of the front and rear lower fascias, wheel moldings, rockers, and wheels.

Interior

Inward, the 2022 Blazer eliminates the floor rail system for the cargo area. This crossover also does away with the LPO-level dealer-installed options mentioned below:

  • Cargo flex divider
  • Premium carpeted floor mats
  • Embroidered front row headrests
  • Rear seat infotainment system without DVD player
  • Rear seat infotainment system with DVD player
  • Keyless entry keypad

At the same time, the six-speaker audio system is now standard on Premier trim, with the Bose premium 8-speaker audio system also a standard feature.

Likewise, the manual tilt and telescoping steering column has also become a standard on Premier models, with a power tilt and telescoping system featured on the 2021 model year.

Mechanical

A few changes have also been made to the Chevy Blazer’s new lineup, beginning with the elimination of the 2.5L LCV 14 motor which acted as the base engine in lesser models, which are also being eliminated (as previously discussed). As a result, the 2.0L LSY Turbo I4 engine will become standard on 2Lt’s and the 3.6L LGX V6 will no longer be featured on this trim.

During which, the trailering equipment package, which comes with Hitch Guidance, has  become a standard feature on AWDs and still remains as an optional tool on FWD models. Remarkably, the ROP code centered on trailering equipment for FWD Blazer’s (VR2) has been dropped. Even though the trailer equipment is available with both engines, it only comes with heavy-duty cooling for models geared with the V6 LGX engine.

There are other minor changes in the content of this package included in each trim level:

  • For 3LT trims: also includes Hitch View when Sound & Technology Package is ordered
  • For RS trims: also includes Hitch View and heavy-duty cooling
  • For Premier trims: also includes Hitch View

Packages

Some packages are getting revamps of their own, such as the Enhanced Convenience becoming available on Premier’s, which is quite a shift considering it just became standard on this trim for the 2021 model year. 

Moreover, the Cargo Essentials Package and Interior Luxury Package have been deleted.

Cargo Essentials Package:

Was available on RS and Premier models and included:

  • Cargo tie-downs (LPO-level item)
  • Horizontal cargo net (LPO-level item)
  • For use with floor rail system

Interior Luxury Package:

Was an LPO-level item and included:

  • Illuminated front door sill plates
  • Premium carpeted floor mats for first and second rows

For LT models:

Not available with:

  • Floor Liner Package
  • Interior Protection Package
  • Dark Galvanized/Light Galvanized interiors
  • Replaces standard floor mats
  • For RS and Premier models:
  • Not available with:
  • Floor Liner Package
  • Interior Protection Package
  • Replaces standard floor mats

2022 Chevy Blazer Availability

On August 9th, production of the 2022 Chevy Blazer was set to begin at General Motors Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico. Unfortunately, production was brought to a halt on August 23rd, which marked the end of the production of the 2021 model year. We’ve recently learned that the car manufacturer resumed production of the Blazer, along with its Traverse and Buick Enclave, which had been halted again until September 27th. 

Unsurprisingly, the ongoing global microchip shortage has resulted in several delays among various automakers, including the Chevrolet company. With this in mind, we expect the 2022 Blazer to reach dealer lots sometime before the end of this year.

Furthermore, it’s expected that the current-gen Blazer will remain in production throughout the 2025 model year, at the very least. After this, it will likely be replaced by its new electric counterpart, as well as many other vehicles in Chevrolet’s lineup.

The 2023 Corvette Z06 Unveils Its Superstar Supercar

By melanie s | Posted in 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, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Monday, October 25th, 2021 at 7:48 PM

The Chevrolet company just unveiled its brand new Corvette Z06, sending shock waves to our system, as well as the rest of the world of performance cars. The reason is that the new vehicle is a higher-performing version of the Corvette supercar which will encompass a V8 engine, which has a level of potency that is almost unreal. This machine, a racing-derived V8, mirrors designs from other hot rods like Ferrari.

The result of this is a fierce and power-hungry motor will crank out an intensely high 8,600 revolutions per minute, and has an incredible output of 670 horses, ranking it as the most potent V8 for its kind that has ever been made. Zooming from 0 to 60 mph should push it to take just over 2.5 seconds, like a Ferrari. On top of this, the engine will provide an experience that is simply out of this world both visually and audibly. Even more so because the engine is fixed in the middle of the car, which aids in the bettering of acceleration and handling.

The 5.5L V8, which produces 670 horses, growled like a lion in the General Motors Design Dome last week, reminding us of the design and engineering performance for the past eight decades.

The largely revamped Z06 encompasses a slew of other changes, many such as the V8 transpired in the development in the Corvette C8 race, which earned it a championship during its first year of competition and put it in the lead during the second year.

“Racing is the reason the Z06 was developed in 1963,” Corvette executive engineer Tadge Juechter said. “We’ve tested the Z06 on the best tracks in the world, from Circuit of the Americas here in the United States, to the Nürburgring in Germany.”

In order to have the ability to handle this power, the Z06 has various performance add-ons. These involve large wheels and tires (with an optional carbon fiber wheel, giant iron brakes, (with optional carbon-ceramic brakes), surplus gaping air intakes to feed and cool down the engine, and large front and rear spoilers.

The tech-stacked cabin of the Z06 also gets some augmentation, with high-quality materials like leathers, suedes, and a plethora of carbon fiber trim elements.

There is an expectation that the Corvette coupe will have a starting price going close to $90,000, (plus destination fee). While the pricing hasn’t been revealed, this is the expected estimate. A convertible version with a power-retracting hardtop is an option, but it will cost you $7,500 more. The $90,000 estimate does reach twice the current average of a new vehicle, however, it is only one-third what it would cost to purchase a car like the Ferrari F8 Tributo and McLaren 720S that the Z06 has outpaced as its competition.

One thing that is certain, is that the drive will be as thrilling as it looks and sounds, and what’s also certain is that you can rely on Miami Lakes Chevrolet to provide you with vehicles with top-notch performance. We sell a wide range of vehicles from the Chevrolet brand, including its dynamic Corvettes.

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.

An Electrified Spotting! Spy Shots Capture The 2023 Corvette Corvette 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 Stingray, Chevy, Chevy Corvette, Chevy dealer Miami, Chevy dealers, Chevy dealers in Miami, Chevy dealers in Miami FL, Chevy dealers Miami, Chevy Dealership on Monday, October 18th, 2021 at 1:26 PM

For quite some time, Chevrolet’s beloved C8 Corvette has been rumored to have a hybrid version in the works, and now it seems that these details weren’t just rumors at all. Based on recent spy shots from car site Motor Authority, along with a video, we see new prototypes for what might be the new electric variant dubbed the Corvette E-ray; Trademarks were also found dating back to 2015.

Then, it’s seen in earlier shots that these prototypes involved coupe and convertible body styles of the Corvette, along with layouts for its left- and right-hand-drive. Engineers for the car company also displayed the regular Corvette Stingray and the Acura NSX to benchmark the prior shots.

The NSX, a hybrid supercar powered by dual motors, a V-6, and a single motor configuration located at the rear, is the only model by a competitor being used for benchmarking to a hybrid Corvette being tested. Don’t forget that the automaker also used the Audi R8, Ferrari 458 Italia, and Porsche 911 Carrera S when the Stingray was in development.

Though the visuals on the inside of the prototypes weren’t that conspicuous, these shots do show the instrument panels covered up, which likely means that the automaker wants to hide the exact details of this electric sports car.

It’s also been deduced that the mock-ups have a new wide-body style that the Corvette Z06 will also share, as seen in certain shots, and is due for its debut by next week, on October 26. Then, the hybrid Corvette should make its inauguration sometime by next year as a 2023 model. It will probably act as a replacement for the former C7 Corvette’s Grand Sport grade.

While we still don’t know details regarding what’s under the hood of the electric Corvette, there is much talk about a single motor used to power the front axle and the Stingray’s 6.2-liter V-8 energizing the rear axle. The maximum output should fall between 600 and 650 hp. Who knows if a plug-in version is also in the works? While that idea certainly isn’t far-fetched, it would mean the possibility of a small electric range. 

A more powerful hybrid system with the pairing of an electric motor, which is also at the rear axle, is expected to be saved for safekeeping until a future Corvette Zora flagship.

You read that right! Chevrolet lovers can expect to see more electric variants coming to the Corvette lineup. In fact, there are plans to release an electric C8 Corvette, a model mentioned by President Joe Biden on several occasions, regarding its existence. Seeing that parent company General Motors intends to have all of its light vehicles powered by electricity by 2035, it’s highly likely that the eventual C9 Corvette will be fully electric and without a gasoline counterpart.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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

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).

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.

2022 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban to Receive Off-Road Performance Package

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. The off-road performance package adds to this with better control and handling, thus preparing families for any adventure that may lie ahead.

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. 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.

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.

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 – 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?

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

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.

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

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. Yet and still, the Bolt and Bolt EUV just might be the first specifically geared all fully electric law enforcement vehicles.

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

As for the rest of us average citizens, the 2022 Bolt EV and Bolt EUV encompass a variety of gadgets and gizmos for us to take advantage of like the LED headlights and taillights, cruise control, a 10.2-inch touchscreen, and a configurable 8.0-inch color gauge cluster,  cruise control, and a dual-level charging cord. 

More specifically, the EUV has the brand’s Super Cruise technology, which allows for hand-free driving about 200,000 miles on North American and Canadian highways. It’s worth noting that you shouldn’t take this as an opportunity to sleep, since the system will activate visible and audible alerts to notify the driver to take control of the larger Bolt.

When the time comes to purchase your new Bolt hatchback or SUV, be sure to do it at Miami Lakes Automall, We carry a wide range of Chevrolet models, both gasoline-powered and electric-powered.

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.”

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.

GM’s CEO Raves About The Upcoming Chevrolet Silverado EV

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.

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

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 Trailblazer, Chevys Miami, Miami, Miami Chevy, Miami Chevy Dealers on Thursday, April 22nd, 2021 at 4:42 PM

 

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.

2022 Chevy Equinox Revamps Its Wardrobe With Four New Paint Colors

By melanie s | Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, April 7th, 2021 at 12:24 PM

New Cosmetic Features For The 2022 Chevy Equinox

The Chevrolet Equinox is getting all gussied up for 2022, and it’s adding four new color options to its makeup palette.

These new selections are set to be introduced with the upcoming Equinox SUV will encompass the following: 

  • Blue Glow Metallic
  • Seaglass Blue Metallic
  • Cherry Red Tintcoat
  • Iron Gray Metallic

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. The grille and fascia will team up with new, augmented headlamps. These headlamps have long, thin housings that draw in the fenders, succeeding the central design line in the grille. 

Additionally, the front will have new fog lamps, while the back end will involve a modified rear bumper and taillights. The body style will also continue to serve as a compact four-door crossover utility vehicle.

In particular, the upcoming Equinox SUV will carry on with offering the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LYX gasoline engine, assumed to be the upscale powerplant option. Initially, General Motors aimed at introducing the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine to the lineup in order to replace the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LTG, the last-mentioned having been terminated during the 2021 model year. At the moment, however, those plans have taken a different turn, as the LYX will continue to serve as the sole engine option.

To get an idea, the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LYX has an output of 170 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 203 lb-ft of torque at 2,000 rpm.

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

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.

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.
