Chevrolet has given serious thought to gain an advantage on the competition in the electric vehicle market. Electric Vehicles (EV) are the way of the future and the parent company of Chevrolet, General Motors, has come out and revealed some of their plans. The goal for GM is to offer 20 EVs by 2023. Included in those 20 vehicles will be some impressive Chevrolet vehicles. General Motors is putting a great deal of focus into a new modular EV architecture known as Ultium. While the details are limited currently, we have done the research about where Chevrolet is going to take its electric vehicle capabilities in this decade.

A New Platform Will Advance the Appeal of EVs

The brand new platform GM is creating will allow GM electric vehicles to provide a remarkable 400-mile driving range and fast 0-60 speeds. Not just fast speeds, mind-blowingly fast speeds including a 0-60 time of just under three seconds. Front-wheel-drive, real-wheel-drive, and all-wheel drive options are also expected to be available within this new platform. This move will definitely work to excite buyers and drive interest in EVs. For a long time, EVs had a stigma of being slow and an owner wouldn’t see any returns on their investments unless they kept their EV for around a decade; that won’t be the case any longer.

Chevrolet’s EV Plans Going Forward

Chevrolet is going to be putting into action this platform with a new Chevrolet pickup with a range of more than 400 miles expected to accompany the EV pickup. Of course, Chevy was the brand that first launched GM’s debut EV. Updates are coming to the Chevy Bolt with the idea of the Bolt becoming a new SUV. This is an exciting idea for Chevrolet and along with that, there will be another mid-size SUV that will gain the EV treatment as well. All of these vehicles might use the new Ultium platform. The Ultium platform will also offer a remarkable battery life for drivers to enjoy. Everything is tied to the hopes the American car buyer will join the growing industry of EVs.

“Our team accepted the challenge to transform product development at GM and position our company for an all-electric future. What we have done is build a multi-brand, multi-segment EV strategy with economies of scale that rival our full-size truck business with much less complexity and even more flexibility,” said Mary Barra, GM chairman and CEO.

What It’s Like To Drive The 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer

 

Slowly but surely, the popularity of sedans and coupes have seen a steep decline in North American sales, particularly in favor of small crossover SUVs. These days automakers are putting a heavy emphasis on all-inclusive features like advanced infotainment and safety features, ample space for both passengers and cargo, and overall good mileage. According to Forbes, some compacts prove to be “as dull as dishwater”, so with the resurgence of Chevrolet’s 2021 Trailblazer, one can only wonder if it can stand out in the automotive market. The brand is already known for its heavy emphasis on SUVs and trucks, such as with its favored Colorado and Traverse. Luckily, it already wins some cool points for its incredibly low starting price of just roughly $20,000, (plus destination fee).

The latest Trailblazer is available in five trims levels: The budget-friendly L, the more indulgent-friendly LS and LT, the slightly posh RS, and somewhat off-road adept ACTIV. When driving you’ll find the subcompact to be quite comfortable in all versions. 

It looks quite comparable to that of the larger Blazer, especially with Chevy’s familiar dual-port grille squeezing between the front headlights, as well as its sleek and trim roofline, and a couple of creases along the sides that add to its intense appearance. The liftgate in the back includes taillights that slightly wrap around and hands-free functionality. 

The interior provides the spaciousness and comfort that is expected of a modern SUV. There’s also plenty of legroom roomy for your long-legged friends. The dashboard has a clean and simple layout, as well as parts of the cabin, though the RS trims are a bit more upscale with its black and faux detailing. The gauges are large and well within reach.

The amount of storage areas across the cabin is nothing short of plentiful, such as with the glovebox, two cubbies by the center console, a bin underneath the armrest. Cargo space in the backseat is a roomy 25.3 cubic-feet and stretches to an impressive 54.3 cubic feet when the 60/40 split rear seatbacks are folded flat. Similarly, the front passenger can fold to house 8.5 feet worth of extra items.

The 2021 Trailblazer is powered by a standard with a 1.2-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine in the L, LS, and LT trim, it’s also allied with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). This turbocharged engine possesses a bit of spunk even though it only has 137 horsepower (137 lb-ft torque). 

On the RS and ACTIV trims (optional on the LT) is the 1.3-liter turbo engine. It pushes out 155 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque. Of course, this engine shows itself to be much livelier. The 9-speed automatic transmission on the AWD models also puts even more pep in this Chevy truck’s step. 

The Trailblazer handles tough road patches like a pro, especially when on curved highway ramps. The ride is delightfully smooth no matter what type of terrain one might encounter. Of course, the ACTIV trim will fair much better with its higher ground clearance, accompanied underbody protection, and special tires and suspension made for improving performance and overall ride quality. 

Interestingly enough, as opposed to most SUVs, the Trailblazer’s available all-wheel-drive system necessitates the driver to operate it through a center-console button. The company claims that this method aids the car in maintaining better fuel economy, however, some car bloggers have noted that an automatic system can respond much more effectively to quickly varying road conditions.

Furthermore, the new Trailblazer offers a great deal of technological amenities such as SiriusXM 360L streaming capability, a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, the connectivity for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as Bluetooth. Optional features include a Bose audio system and a wireless charging pad. On the more external side, optional features include a panoramic sunroof and LED headlights.

Chevy hasn’t forgotten about your safety tech, as it comes with standard driver-assist features like forward collision alert, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, auto high beams, and lane departure warning with lane-keep assist. Optional features are adaptive cruise control, blind-spot warning, and rear cross-traffic alert systems are optional.

No matter what version of the 2021 Trailblazer that you decide on will certainly provide excellent performance and overall experience. For those who are looking are a bit budget-conscious, the base L would be ideal ($19,995). For those who are looking for a more off-road experience will enjoy the ACTIV ($26,395). 

Miami Lakes Chevrolet is currently selling the latest Trailblazer in nearly all different versions for just around $25,000, (plus destination fee). Those who are interested in this vehicle or any of our other Chevrolet can simply view our online new car inventory and chat with a representative virtually for further assistance.

Chevrolet Is Developing A New EV Pickup Truck

GM Miami Lakes Automall

GM has unveiled its future electric vehicle plans in its 10th sustainability report, and one of the most striking projects is Chevrolet’s BET Truck. This will be Chevy’s first full-size electric pickup truck and General Motors has listed its electric-mile range to surpass 400 miles. Unfortunately, that’s all General Motors has revealed about its plans. Some have speculated that the Silverado has the chance to be the first pickup that gains the electric capacity or a brand new model. Not that the Silverado needs any more support to surpass the competition. The lofty goals are taken very seriously by GM, as even the president of GM, Mark Reuss has revealed he drives a Chevrolet Bolt to commute to work. When looking into the plans for Chevrolet, the goal is determined straight from the top. 

Chevrolet Investments Are Set

The early reports had Chevrolet introducing the new EV pickup truck by 2021, but this might be pushed back since the global Coronavirus pandemic has continued longer than expected. General Motors has actually proposed 20 electric vehicles will be produced and on the road by 2023. The pledge by GM included nearly an entire lineup of EVs by 2030. The $2.2 billion investment will see GM’s Detroit-Hamtramck plant turning into the first assembly plant solely focused on EVs. Chevrolet will also make new EV vehicles and keep some of the gasoline models for the near future, but across the board, this won’t be the case for long. While there hasn’t been an electric vehicle made since the Bolt in 2016, this upcoming decade will see the production of EVs starting with this new pickup EV. The growth of EV will take place globally for GM by 2040. Another goal is ensuring the recycling of 100 percent of end-of-life EV batteries.

General Motors Leads the EV Way

The goal for Chevrolet is not only to add its first-ever electric pickup, but to add a mid-sized electric SUV and a possibly a new look to the Chevrolet Bolt, converting the famed electric car into an SUV or crossover design. General Motors will also work to add three-row luxury electric SUVs. Through their GMC and Cadillac brands, expect GM to add other EV models, including an electric Hummer, but the large focus remains on the Chevrolet brand to lead the way for GM.

“The past several months have been difficult and our world has changed. As we move through the world in a new way, GM is as determined as ever to create solutions that lead to a better future for all. GM remains focused on delivering on our vision of a world with zero crashes, zero emissions, and zero congestion while becoming the most inclusive company in the world,” -CEO Mary Barra

Chevrolet Gets J.D. Power’s Stamp Of Approval For 2020

 

General Motors Top-Ranking Brand

Racecar driver Louis Chevrolet surely couldn’t have imagined how much of a powerhouse that his famous automobile company would turn out to be, especially with its most recent honor. The century-old brand was recently ranked amid the top companies for customer loyalty by J.D. Power’s 2020 U.S. Automotive Brand Study.

The data from the renowned J.D. Power states that roughly 49.1 percent of all Chevrolet owners end up purchasing another vehicle by the brand once a new vehicle has been released into the market. The ability to preserve their customer base puts Chevrolet in seventh place amid all non-premium brands in the automobile industry and third within American brands, also peeping just before Ford with 54.3 percent and Ram with 57.3 percent.

Other companies from Chevy’s parent company General Motors were also ranked on J.D’s list,  such as GMC ranking 13 from its 39 percentage and Buick tailing behind at 14 with a 27.5 percentage. Additionally, Cadillac was ranked separately as a luxury brand and placed tenth in its segment with 33.8 percent. Overall, Chevrolet was the top-ranking brand of Chevrolet Motors in the J.D. study.

In the second year of the J.D. Power Brand Loyalty study, it places automotive brands subject to the percentage of owners that swap out their vehicle with another car from that same brand. The data for the study was collected between June 2019 and May 2020, it also includes data for all model-year vehicles that were exchanged. This denotes that owners who purchased a significantly older Chevy vehicle, for instance, and replaced it by buying a new Chevy car from a dealership were counted towards the customer retention total.

Tyson Jominy, J.D. Power’s vice president of data and analytics, said that automakers will be eager to keep their existing base, particularly in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. Many automobile manufacturers have been forced to slow down their production and refigure how to go about promoting new vehicles since buyers more than likely will have to be a bit stingy with their money for a while.

“Automakers are really focused on customer retention, as evidenced by the payment plans and incentives they’ve offered since the COVID-19 pandemic broke out,” said Jominy. “Many have gone above and beyond to offer customers financial assistance during a period of economic uncertainty, which does a lot to bolster consumer confidence in their chosen brand and repurchase it in the future,” 

Chevrolet and General Motors have already offered a considerable amount of incentives for its customers, American frontline health workers, and even those affected by the disease. Around the month of May, General Motors transformed its Warren, MI, establishment to create needful surgical-grade face masks for healthcare workers.

For Chevrolet’s customers, the company offered the “Shop. Click. Drive.” program as a means to purchase a new vehicle online and have it delivered to their residence. Additionally, special payment plans and other financing services were offered, especially to those who either fell ill to the virus or were experiencing financial hardship due to the pandemic.

Chevrolet Surpasses Ram In Pickup Sales

Silverado-Miami-Lakes-Automall

2020 has not been a banner year for automotive sales, but the Chevrolet Silverado has rebounded quite well from last year. The Chevrolet brand has finished second to XYZ so far through the first two quarters of 2020. Chevrolet sold a grand total of 267,166 Silverado pickups from January through June this year. The light-duty Silverado was more popular over the heavy-duty models, with over 200,000 of those sales going to the light-duty variant. Surprisingly, the Silverado saw higher sales in some parts of the United States when compared to the same stretch in 2019. Let’s talk about the plans for Chevrolet given its growth so far this year.

Breaking Down the Numbers of the Silverado Sales

The good news for the Chevy brand is its rival brand Ram saw an 18 percent decline over the first six months of 2020. Ram sold 246,253 pickups, exactly 20,913 models less than Chevrolet. This would not be a surprise to Silverado owners. Even Ford has seen an 18 percent drop from last year. That news is definitely a shock as Ford just introduced its 14th generation Ford F-150 model. But, the growth of the Chevrolet Silverado might see new peaks and sustaining its popularity going into the future. 

Chevy Expands Safety Features Across All Vehicles

Where will Chevrolet take the Silverado for the 2021 model year and beyond? The interior is rumored to gain an update with a mid-cycle enhancement and refresh coming to the full-size pickup. The safety features will see enhancements including standard features across all trims. Chevrolet lists these features as Active Safety features that include Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking, Forward Collision Alert. 

Further down the line, some reports suggest the 2022 Silverado might gain the same center stack as the all-new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban offer. Chevrolet is planning to expand its safety features across the board of its lineup, including the 2021 Malibu. While we wait for the news to break regarding the 2021 Silverado debuting at dealerships, we have plenty of new 2020 Silverado models ready to go at Miami Lakes Automall.

The 2021 Chevrolet Corvette Revamps Apple CarPlay and Includes Other New Features

 

Revamped 2021 Corvette 

In 2019, Chevrolet revealed its highly-awaited mid-engine Corvette Stingray. It came well supplied with highly advanced technology such as wireless phone charging, NFC (Near Field Communication), backing for over-the-air updates and a 1080p Performance Data Recorder. Setbacks came as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and the company was forced to cut down its scheduled production year for its 2020 model, but Chevrolet recently announced that the 2020 version will receive updates.

Although the price and its highly energetic 6.2 L V8 engine will stay the same, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now standard features. This “driver-centric cockpit” includes an instrument cluster that is fully digital and has a brand new driver mode on-screen as well as a track digital tachometer.

More exciting infotainment features that are included are Chevrolet’s Infotainment 3 Plus system, with an 8.0-inch touchscreen and Bluetooth audio streaming, as well as a 4G LTE mobile hotspot. Car review site, Car and Driver reported the system to be user-friendly and has a fast response to commands. It also comes with key safety features like Available blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.

In 2019, the company also implemented a Magnetic Ride Control 4.0 suspension system useful for adjusting for potholes and/or slanted driveways. This feature is now available as a standalone option regardless of whether or not one opts for the Z51 performance package. Car website, Autoblog broke down some of the new upcoming options arriving later this year, such as different choices in color and General Motors’ Buckle to Drive system that inactivates the car if the driver does not fasten his or her seat belt.

On a cosmetic stance, an all-new Full Length Dual Racing Stripe is now available, specifically with blue, orange, red, or yellow stripes. There is also a new gray and yellow color arrangement that has been added onto the list of options.

Furthermore, the latest Corvette model will keep its two-seat layout, but the interior is moved up a bit in order to house the mid-mounted engine. The cabin is lined with materials like leather, actual metal, and replica suede as well as a stitched headliner. Like the previous Corvettes, it will also include a removable roof, which fits in the vehicle’s trunk. Those who upgrade to the 3LT package are granted with premium-like materials like sewn leather on many interior surfaces, including carbon-fiber trim. 

Lastly, the 2021 Corvette offers two cargo areas, one in front of the passenger compartment and the other behind the engine, providing a total of 13 cubic feet of storage space. The company states that the car can fit two sets of golf clubs in the rear compartment when they are assembled on top of each other.

General Motors Presents A Special Corvette Mini-Me To New Owners

 

Corvette Owners New Gifts and Prizes

At long last, the wait for the C8 Corvette has come to an end. Chevrolet enthusiasts are hurrying their way to dealerships in hopes of snagging the next great American supercar in recent history. Both journalists and supporters have commenced the newest Corvette for its top-notch performance, superb handling, and ultimately its knockout appearance. Considering much that the C8 is a mid-engined vehicle is simply the icing on the cake, and can you get any better than that?

It appears that the Chevy family thinks that buying their latest sports car has isn’t enough, as they have found a way for shoppers to have a more individualized car buying experience. They’ve already brought in a Corvette expert at chosen dealerships of the brand, and now they’re presenting new Corvette owners with a free “Speed Shape Model” that parallels with the selected design of the buyers new C8, which is much better than a lame poster.

The traditionally truck-focused company previously offered their thanks to new Corvette owners with gifts like a special letter or the conventional teen-dream poster, but now the brand is making great strides to upgrade this experience by presenting its customers with a scale model of their particular car, painted in the same exact shade as their chosen model. Writer at Corvette Blogger, Jeremy Welborn conveys them as being “larger than the traditional 1:25 promotional models and a lot heavier as well.” Not to mention they look pretty cool too!

The buyer will find this gift presented in a small black box. The miniature Corvettes include a small badge placed on the front of the model and comes with an engraving of the owner’s VIN number.

The GM goodies don’t just stop at the personalized C8 models, the company also includes in the package a discount coupon for the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School at Spring Mountain. This coupon allows Corvette owners for the year to undertake a two-day high-performance driver education seminar at Spring Mountain for just $1,000, which saves possible attendees over $2,000. Seems reasonable enough, besides, one would surely want to make certain that they don’t destroy their new hot rod.

It is unclear whether or not the company is planning to continue this new venture for models succeeding the C8. However, we are early waiting on the arrival of the actual 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8, as well as the powerful 2021 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, which will have active aerodynamics and a flat-plane crankshaft on its 5.5-liter V8 engine.

2021 Chevrolet Malibu Gains New Special Edition, Safety Features

Photo credit: Chevrolet

In the automotive landscape, the sedan is a vanishing segment – lingering as a surge of demand has arisen for both trucks and SUVs. However, General Motors has not stopped making new sedan vehicles. The automaker is doing everything in its power to keep selling cars like the Chevrolet Malibu. The Malibu is currently at its ninth-generation. The Malibu is expanding with a new spec as it enters its sixth year on the market with a new 2021 Sport Edition package. There is some speculation the Chevrolet Malibu might eventually be made into a new crossover SUV at some point. The Chevrolet Impala was discontinued, so if the Malibu doesn’t change, it might be discontinued. Chevrolet is also incorporating new safety features to help address ongoing issues. 

More on the Malibu Special Edition

Drivers who opt for the Sport Edition will gain a black nameplate badge, black bowtie emblems, and black-painted alloy wheels including 19 inches in diameter, encased in 245-section all-season tires. The Sport Edition is based on the LT trim level, a slight downgrade from Premier trim. Chevrolet has added a Jet Black exterior paint option More is expected to package, the Malibu is also set to get a couple of other fresh changes for 2021. Namely, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are going wireless, where before a USB cable connection was required, and a newly available safety feature has been added to all Malibu models to inspire seat belt use.

New “Buckle To Drive” Feature

The new safety feature, entitled “Buckle to Drive”, will eventually find its way into multiple General Motor vehicles. So far it has been added to the 2020 Chevrolet Traverse. This system works to help drivers ensure that are securely fastened with their seatbelt. In fact, the driver can not shift out of park until the car recognizes that their seat belt has been fastened. This is an available feature, should an owner not want to include this new addition, but GM will be moving this safety precaution as a feature to more vehicles. The system was designed for teen drivers and won’t allow the car to go into gear unless the driver’s seatbelt is buckled. GM also has another safety feature called Rear Seat Reminder, which alerts the driver to check the back seat once the ignition is turned off if the rear doors were opened sometime during the trip.

“Buckle to Drive is Chevrolet’s latest feature designed to encourage young drivers to develop safe driving habits right from the start. Buckle to Drive is embedded in Chevrolet’s Teen Driver system and is aimed at helping remind teens to buckle up every time they get behind the wheel,” said Tricia Morrow, Chevrolet safety engineer. 

More Safety Features Coming

GM has also introduced a new Rear Seat Reminder safety feature. This is an important feature that can be used to help drivers with small pets or babies, as many times there have been accidents where an owner forgets to check the vehicle. Eventually, the U.S. Congress might make car child alerts mandatory in all new vehicles. The bill being proposed by Congress would expect the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to address new laws for automakers early this decade. These laws would define “a distinct auditory and visual alert” to caution drivers to check their back seat when leaving a car. For our readers, let us know what you think on social media

2021 Chevrolet Colorado Has All the “Wow” Options That Customers Crave

Colorado Miami Lakes Automall

Chevrolet has made some changes to its upcoming mid-size pickup, the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado. The 2021 model year will launch with a brand new Custom Special Edition as well as other goodies Chevrolet fans have waited for. Along with this special edition is an array of Colorado options including an enhanced ZR2, the return of the ZR2 Bison, and the addition of the 2.8-liter turbodiesel inline-4 engine. All Chevy Colorado trims have noticeable cosmetic upgrades to the front and rear, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen is standard on all but the base WT trim. The nameplate came back in 2015, but the Chevy Colorado is helped by this refresh to go up against the growing mid-size truck segment that includes the Ford Ranger, Jeep Gladiator, and a refreshed Toyota Tacoma.  

More About the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado

Chevrolet has added “Chevrolet” lettering instead of the bowtie over the grille across all four trims. The bowties will be updated to match the bigger grilles where the “Chevrolet” lettering is present. A new Sand Dune Metallic paint will be available on all Z trims.

As Chevy pledges a wider differentiation between trims, the WT, LT, and Z71 trims all have gotten some tweaks. Owners will spot new center bars, lower bumpers, and added for protection are front skid plates. The Custom trim available on the base WT adds body-color grille, mirrors, door handles, and rear bumper, as well as 18-inch aluminum wheels. Owners can opt for a newly introduced Chrome Appearance Package available for the LT model. This will fit the Chevy Colorado with chrome across the grille, door handles, rear bumper, belt-line molding, and on the heated manual-folding side mirrors, although the pricing for this package hasn’t been listed. 

ZR-2 Gains the Most Enhancements

The ZR2 off-road variant has added more than any other trim.  The first way to tell is from the front, regarding the high mesh grille.  Along with the “Chevrolet” bar branded across the middle, drivers will spot the lower fascia is more extensive and smooth with the upper bumper. This trim also brings standard red tow hooks in the front. 

The 2021 Chevrolet Colorado offers owners with three powertrain options, including a 200 horsepower 2.5-Liter 4-cylinder, a 308 horsepower 3.6-Liter V6, and a 181 horsepower, 2.8-Liter turbodiesel inline-4 that produces 369 pound-feet of torque. The 2021 Colorado can be fitted with an extended cab or crew cab in rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. There is some more good news coming into 2020 as the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado is set to go on sale by the end of summer. Thinking about getting a new mid-size pickup and want to experience a test-drive or see new options?
