The 2023 Chevy Bolt Takes The Cake As The Most Affordable EV

Monday, June 6th, 2022

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.

The Chevy Trax Is Coming Back For More In 2023

Monday, April 18th, 2022

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).

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

Monday, April 11th, 2022

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

Tuesday, April 5th, 2022

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.

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

Monday, March 14th, 2022

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).

KBB Says That The 2022 Chevy Equinox Is Comfortable and Under $30,000

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2022

2022 Chevy Equinox

The 2022 Chevrolet Equinox SUV is getting high praise from the automotive editors at Kelley’s Blue Book (KBB). The Irvine, California-based vehicle valuation and automotive research company, recently put in the latest Equinox on its list of Most Comfortable Vehicles Available To Buy For Under $30,000.

The company that’s owned by the Cox Automotive subsidiary of Cox Enterprises published its list of most comfortable vehicles and deconstructed particular vehicles that they deem are the most spacious, tranquil, and ride the smoothest on the current market. The latest Equinox SUV ranked on this list, right ahead of the highly praised 2022 Honda Accord and incredible roomy 2022 Suburu Outback.

Editors at KBB gave high remarks over the design of the seats in the 2022 Chevrolet Equinox, combined with its extensive cabin space and its excellent range of available in-car conveniences. 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.

The 2024 Chevy Silverado EV: Up Close and Personal

Monday, February 21st, 2022

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).

The 2023 Chevy Blazer: Refreshed With Better Tech

Monday, February 7th, 2022

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

Monday, January 31st, 2022

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.
