 chevy-equinox-miami-lakes-auto-mall-chevy

Coming in early 2017 is the new 2018 Chevy Equinox, which will be lighter and available with an all-new diesel engine – the first diesel on a CUV in the U.S. Check out what changes are coming to the 2018 Chevy Equinox

Engines

The 2018 Equinox lineup will be available with three different turbocharged engines, including the 1.5-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, a 2.0-liter turbo engine, and an all-new 1.6-liter turbodiesel engine. The new diesel engine is expected to produce 136 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque and  GM says the diesel engine will have a fuel economy of 40 mpg on the highway.

All-New Interior and Exterior

What other changes are being made to the 2018 Chevy Equinox? So far we know the exterior and interior have both gone through a major redesign. The body is four inches shorter and the entire vehicle is 400 pounds lighter, yet somehow Chevy managed to add 3.5 cubic feet of cargo space inside the vehicle. Read the rest of this entry >>

Need a 9-passenger SUV? Try the Chevy Tahoe or Suburban

 chevy-suburban-miami-lakes-auto-mall

The Chevy Tahoe and Chevy Suburban are two of the largest SUVs on the market. Since both are built by Chevy they have many similarities, especially when it comes to technology, but they both have a few differences including pricing, passenger seating and towing capacity. Thankfully Miami Lakes Automall has both of these vehicles available, so you can come check out both today to see which one fits you best!

Performance + Fuel Economy

The 2016 Chevy Tahoe and the 2016 Chevy Suburban are powered by the same 5.3-liter EcoTec V8 engine that is paired to a six-speed shiftable automatic transmission. The engine and transmission combination produces 355 horsepower and 385 lb-ft of torque.

Based on the GM large SUV segment, the Tahoe and the Suburban both offer Best-in-Class fuel economies of 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway. However, the Suburban has a longer range because it has a 31-gallon gas tank, whereas the Tahoe has a 26-gallon tank. Read the rest of this entry >>

Chevy Bolt EV Exceeds Range of Tesla Model 3 by 25 miles

Electric cars are becoming increasingly popular each year and one American automaker isn’t shying away from the new technology. Though Chevy is well-known for their powerful trucks and performance cars, they are embracing electric vehicles in a powerful way. Chevy already has a few hybrids under its belt, but in late 2016, Chevy will release its all-new 2017 Chevy Bolt, a revolutionary electric vehicle (EV). The 2017 Chevy Bolt will be one of the most affordable EVs and it will offer the best all-electric range of 238 miles, beating out competitors like Tesla.  

2017 Chevy Bolt

The 2017 Chevy Bolt is a mix of new and standard technology features. It is equipped with a 200-horsepower electric motor, a nickel-rich lithium ion battery and the Chevy Bolt has a sleek style inside and out. Car and Driver has predicted that once the Bolt is released, it will jump to the number one spot on their list of electric vehicles.

238-Mile Battery Range

As mentioned earlier, the Chevy Bolt has an EPA-certified range of 238 miles when the 60 kWh lithium-ion battery is fully charged. That means that the Chevy Bolt’s electric distance is better than the 215-mile electric range that Tesla models and the future Tesla Model 3 offer. 

With a 240-volt outlet, the battery charges 25 miles every hour, and it is estimated to be fully charged in 9 hours. This may seem like a long time, but if you plug the car in after work and unplug before work the next day it will be fully charged many days of use — impressive! Read the rest of this entry >>
