Next year is a huge year for the Chevy Corvette because 2018 is the vehicle’s 65th anniversary! Over the years Chevy has followed the typical anniversary traditions, like a Silver Corvette for the 25th anniversary and a Gold Corvette for the 50th anniversary, but for this anniversary, Chevy is making a new tradition. Chevy is going to celebrate the Corvette’s 65th anniversary with a carbon fiber package called the Corvette Carbon 65.
Earlier this month Chevy introduced a new special edition Tahoe and Suburban and it’s pretty snazzy. The special edition is known as the RST or Rally Sport Truck and it is built for those who want to give their truck a slightly different look. The Tahoe RST is also available with the brand new performance package, which comes with a 420-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 engine.
The biggest difference from this edition and other Tahoe and Suburban models is that all the chrome trims and accents are replaced with black for the aggressive style of a Rally Sport Truck. Exclusive features of the RST include 22-inch wheels wrapped in Bridgestone tires, a body-color grille (as opposed to the chrome grille), black roof-rails, gloss-black mirror caps, and black badging and black Chevy bowties.
Other available upgrades included with the RST package include a Borla exhaust system (which offers 28 percent improvement of exhaust flow and increases horsepower by about 7-10 horses) and brake package that includes massive Brembo brake. Read the rest of this entry
When compared to the competition, the Chevy Bolt EV is the best and most affordable electric vehicle (EV) on the market. When compared to other comparably-priced competitors like the Nissan Leaf and Ford Focus EV, the Bolt EV beats out the competition in battery range, power and MPGe.
When it comes to an EV, the total driving range on a fully-charged battery is a top priority for drivers. The Chevy Bolt out runs the Ford Focus EV and Nissan Leaf. The battery in the Chevy Bolt is a 60 kWh 350 V lithium-ion battery that has a driving range of more than 238 miles. The Nissan Leaf has a 30 kWh 360 V lithium-ion has a 107-mile driving range and the Ford Focus EV’s 33.5 kWh lithium-ion has a 100-mile driving range. Not only does the Chevy Bolt EV win, but it does so by a lot.
Just because you want a fuel efficient car doesn’t mean you want to sacrifice horsepower and Chevy understands that. The Chevy Bolt EV may run on battery power, but it produces an impressive 200 horsepower, which is more than some gas-powered vehicles. The Nissan Leaf only produces 107 horsepower and the Ford Focus EV produces 143 horsepower, so again, the Chevy Bolt EV smokes the competition. Read the rest of this entry
Dependability and quality are two factors that are very important to consumers before they make a purchasing decision on a used or new car. One brand that has a reputation and stack of awards for quality and dependability factors is Chevrolet. In the last few years, Chevrolet has racked up several awards and titles from various J.D. Power studies.
J.D. Power Dependability Study
The J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS) is a measure of problems experienced after three years of ownership, so the cars evaluated in the 2017 dependability study are actually from the 2014 model year. Well, not only does Chevrolet have more cars than any other non-premium brand on this year’s (2017) dependability study, but they also had more cars than any other non-premium brand in 2016 as well.
