Earlier in 2020, the introduction of the all-new 2020 Chevrolet Menlo EV began in China, becoming a new engaging option that is exclusive currently to China. This a compact-size SUV that is a fully battery-electric. Customers in China will be able to drive the Menlo EV and enjoy one of its cool cargo features in the following GM Authority Feature Spotlight. The feature in question is found in the Chevrolet Menlo EV’s sizable rear hatch. Underneath the rear hatch cargo floor, there’s a segmented tray, which can easily hold several different items safely and be protected. Chevrolet has made better use of the space offered in the interior with the Menlo EV.

2020 Chevrolet Menlo EV Arrives

While the 2020 Chevrolet Menlo EV has arrived, it is currently exclusive to the Chinese market. It was developed in a joint venture between General Motors and China’s SAIC, also known as SAIC-GM. There are currently no plans to make the all-electric crossover available outside of China. The Chevrolet Menlo EV gains its sports an exterior design from the 2017 Chevrolet FNR-X Concept. The crossover seats five passengers and drives on a regional variant of the GM BEV2 platform. The GM BEV2 platform also contributed to the underpinnings for the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV. What has Chevrolet introduced 

More On the EV Powertrain 

Looking into the powertrain of the Menlo, the EV crossover contains a single electric motor, which pumps out 148 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The engine receives its power with a 52.5 kWh battery pack that supplies as much as 256 miles on a single charge, based on the New European Driving Cycle criteria. With General Motors ramping up its all-electric vehicle efforts in a major way over the next few years, we may see similar storage accommodation on models intended for the U.S. as well.

Upcoming 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe Gains New Air Suspension System

Tahoe Miami Lakes Automall

The 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe was made by engineers to offer customers more than the Tahoe ever has before. There was a reason to build the next-generation Tahoe to be a fully versatile SUV; that’s what the market expects today. One thing that many customers want is the ability to offer guests comfort, but the flexibility to provide more than lots of space. The goal by Chevrolet was to push the boundaries to present drivers with the ability to take the Tahoe off traditional roads and give the owners of the vehicle more. This is how the new Air Ride Adaptive Suspension option, which is available on High Country and Z71 trim levels, came to be.

More On the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe

Now, we’re getting a look at how the 2021 Tahoe air suspension works in a new video made by Chevrolet, showing off the all-new Tahoe. Readers can learn about the process the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe undergoes to help make the air suspension work properly. There are exactly four modes that are offered with the 2021 Tahoe air suspension system. Owners have the choice to modify the vehicle ride height to fit the conditions, with a maximum raise up to four inches. The system is officially known as Air Ride Adaptive Suspension.

The Maximum Ground Clearance setting lifts the new Chevrolet Tahoe to assist and navigate any trails without issue, quickly raising the vehicle with the simple turn of a knob. Allowing the vehicle to go down to normal ride height is quite simple with a turn of the knob, and the suspension will go back down to the standard ride height. Drivers are able to enjoy their vehicle more so than ever before with the convenience of air suspension. Adapting to new trails easily will make driving easier.

Further Features of the Air Suspension

Drivers gain the perks of the 2021 Tahoe air suspension that will adjust the ride height on the highway to improve fuel efficiency. Owners can raise the suspension to make it easier to properly align with a trailer hitch, or lower the suspension if needed. The automatic suspension features automatic load leveling at all four corners. The engineers really did their part to allow the technology to provide drivers with an easy way to adapt to driving. The all-new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe is built on the GM T1 vehicle architecture and includes a brand new independent multilink rear suspension design. The 2021 Tahoe air suspension system is not expected to be ready until late in 2020. For those that can’t wait to ride a new Chevrolet vehicle, or a pre-owned Chevrolet, we are ready to make the process an easy one.

Take A Closer Look At the Future of the Chevrolet Malibu

Chevrolet is looking to make changes to its current line-up. The focus has turned from sedans to the production of more popular consumer choices. Over the years, Chevrolet has removed the Chevy Cruze and Impala with the 2019 model year being the last. The Chevrolet Sonic and Chevrolet Malibu are the only two remaining sedan options for customers. The results of this have had some effects that led to some success for the Malibu. 

The Sales Success of the Chevrolet Malibu

Among the future vehicle choices General Motors, parent company of Chevrolet, and Chevy are deciding on, the fate of the Chevy Malibu is in the air. The newest Malibu is currently in its ninth-generation and had a recent refresh just over a year ago for the 2019 model year. With the refresh, but sales have not come close to the numbers expected despite posting a 3 percent growth in the first-quarter of 2020, ahead of the 2019 first-quarter sales numbers. 

Comparing last year’s sales, which produced 34,197 vehicles sold, to 35,283 vehicles sold this year. Those numbers reflect a higher sales number than so many other vehicles in the midsize segment. The 2020 Chevy Malibu surpassed Kia, Hyundai, Mazda, and Subaru rival cars. However, compared to 2016, when the Malibu sold 227,881 units. The most recent years have not drawn numbers like that despite less competition. 

The 2023 Malibu Will Be the Last One?

Chevrolet remains committed to building new EV and AV vehicles with a focus on spending attention on those technologies. A report has come out that said another refresh was expected to come in 2023 with a new generation coming out in 2025. Now, that has possibly been changed. A rumor has also named the Chevrolet Sonic as another vehicle set to be discontinued. The United States is the last remaining market where it’s still sold, following its discontinuation around the world. Even the two vehicles that have been at the top of all sedan sales, Toyota Camry and Honda Accord have seen a dropoff in sales.  An eight-percent drop off in 2019 will be topped by an expected 15 percent drop in 2020. 

Currently, customers can drive the 2020 Chevy Malibu and find its attractive low-cost at only $22,140 MSRP (Plus destination fee). The 2020 Malibu boasts solid fuel efficiency at 29 city mpg and 36 highway mpg. Two engine types are available with a 1.5-Liter 4-Cylinder engine and a 2.0-LIter 4-Cylinder option. Curious to know more about the Malibu? We have the new 2020 Chevrolet Malibu ready for our customers to experience today.

Chevy Miami Lakes Automall

For those interested in full-size SUVs, few stack up like the all-new 2021 Chevrolet Suburban. Among the options for this all-new model of the Suburban comes the Z71 trim. The rise of full-size off-road-ready vehicles in the SUV segment is the latest trend for customers. The all-new Suburban Z71 puts an end to the conversation for the greatest vehicle of this booming trend. For those who have wanted a vehicle that can seat eight guests and still handle the rigors of off-roading, there are few vehicles like the 2021 Chevy Tahoe Z71. What does this Chevy SUV provide that is unlike any other full-size large SUV? It’s one of the big boys on the road that provides more than most vehicles can. Luxurious and space with tons of options for owners, let us explain how Chevy has pulled out all the stops.  

Nothing Like A Suburban Z71

Chevrolet wanted to provide customers who opt for the Suburban with multiple strong V8 options. The high-end Z71 is built with the ability to take the roads less traveled. Friendly approach and departure angles for those that want to enjoy its 4×4 aspects were added along with its impressive power, this is a vehicle that is built for extreme travels. Complete with BF Goodrich all-terrain tires, the Suburban Z71 is ready to go where an owner wants to take it. 

Regarding engines, the Suburban Z71 comes with the option of a 5.3-Liter V8 and the robust 6.2-Liter HEMI V8. A 10-speed automatic transmission and two-speed transfer case are standard, as is Hill Descent Control, this feature is not available for the lower LT trim. Rounding out the Z71 trim are front and rear tow hooks, trim-specific styling that includes a unique grille and a host of special badging. 

More Spacious Than Ever Before

Keep in mind, the 2021 Suburban’s interior cargo space has increased by an impressive 19 percent just from last year, while total length has increased by just over one percent. Much of that can be attributed to the model’s new independent rear suspension, which is perhaps the single largest upgrade in GM’s family of new SUVs—from the Tahoe and Suburban to GMC’s Yukon range and the Cadillac Escalade. similar in style to its Chevy Tahoe cousin. That’s not to say the Tahoe is a similar perse. The Suburban Z71 holds a wheelbase that’s nearly 14 inches longer. Not to mention, there’s more space for guests in the Z71 compared to the Tahoe with its additional 16 cubic feet of additional cargo space behind the third row. For those looking to drive the upcoming, all-new 2021 Suburban Z71, it will have a starting price of $63,195 MSRP (Plus destination fee). 

Interior Perks For the Whole Family

Drivers will embrace the technology fitted in the Suburban.

New “Wild Cherry Package” Coming For 2021 Chevy Camaro

Camaro Miami Lakes Automall

Chevrolet has a brand new package coming for the new 2021 Chevrolet Camaro. The Chevy favorite is adding a new paint color, confirmed in a release found in the General Motors fleet ordering guides. Going into detail on the new “Wild Cherry Design Package”, this is a color that can be found on the exterior with a darker, deeper shade than the Chevrolet Camaro’s current Garnet Red color base. This new package will be available for customers to add to nearly all 2021 Camaro trims when the Camaro Wild Cherry package is officially released for both the coupe and convertible forms of the Camaro. This change is expected to debut with the 2021 Camaro, as this is only an appearance package that introduces two main options for buyers. 

More Insight On the Wild Cherry Package

There are two specific levels to the package that customers can opt into. While the package color images haven’t been released yet, we’ve learned that every trim in the Camaro, except for the 1LT and ZL1 trim can add the package. This package works in the coupe variation and the convertible version has all except the ZL1 trim. Owners of the 2021 Chevy Camaro will have the first level option that adds the Wild Cherry paint, including five-spoke wheels, plus a Camaro fender badge. The appearance of black hash stripes is added from the front fender through the back. Owners can opt for the second-tier of the package that adds Carbon Flash ground effects. The addition of a black fuel filler door with visible carbon fiber insert, black suede-covered knee pads and the choice of a center stripe. For the 2LT and 3LT the stripe can be black or silver-colored, whereas the 3SS can be black metallic or silver. This addition is included in the pricing, but the announcement did not include a price point for either package offering. 

More News From Chevrolet

The Shock and Steel Special Edition will be removed eventually as this new package makes its debut later in 2020. The 2021 Chevrolet Camaro will include a $4,500 Track Performance package that adds a 10-speed automatic transmission, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Shock Package, which will be ending its run after the 2021 model year. Chevrolet has not announced when the new Wild Cherry package will debut, but we’re happy to share we have the popular 2019 Chevrolet Camaro as well as the new 2020 Chevrolet Camaro ready for our readers to check out. Secure them while you can with our help today!

Pursuit Miami Lakes Automall

2021 Chevrolet Tahoe Pursuit Ready To Join the Police Force

The 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe has been selected to be one of the few vehicles employed by police officers in a special all-new Police Pursuit Vehicle (PPV) and Special Service Vehicle (SSV) set to debut in 2020. Chevrolet has been able to provide law enforcement vehicles and the next-generation Tahoe is available in two law enforcement packages. The Tahoe Police Pursuit Vehicle was made for high speeds and dynamic capability with additional comfort needed from an everyday patrol vehicle. The Special Service Vehicle differs as it is more focused on off-road and towing abilities and high-speed operations are not needed.

“Tahoe is the most aspirational vehicle in the law enforcement industry. By listening to the needs of officers from around the country, we have built the best Tahoe ever,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president, GM Fleet. 

New Tahoe Pursuit Upgrades

The 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe SUV has undergone an all-new design. A big change comes in the form of its now class-leading interior space. The new Tahoe police-specific front seats provide additional hip room, ideal for officers’ utility belts to fit much more comfortably. 2021 Tahoe police vehicles offer 70.3 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the second-row seat, which is 18.3 cubic feet more than the next largest pursuit-rated SUV competitor. Other brands have their own Pursuit vehicles, but they won’t provide as much space as the Tahoe. Rear door openings are now 13 percent (3.5 inches) wider than the previous generation to ease the loading of any handcuffed passengers.

Each of these 2021 Tahoe special editions, the PPV and SSV, have a 5.3-Liter V8 engine under the hood. The powertrain is paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission. To meet the most demanding needs of law enforcement, the PPV engine borrows high-performance rocker covers taken from the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 LT4 engine. These rocker covers improve crankcase ventilation, allowing the 2021 Tahoe to handle high lateral conditions even better than its predecessor. Engine oil and transmission fluid are cooled by dedicated, heavy-duty cooling systems specific for law enforcement applications. 

More Details on the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe Pursuit

In order to be able to handle the amount of new Chevrolet Pursuit vehicles, Chevrolet partnered with Bridgestone to create a Pursuit-rated all-season tire. Each Firestone Firehawk Pursuit tire is mounted to a 20-inch steel wheel. These wheels and tires were tested by Chevrolet at numerous race tracks and play a role in the PPV’s improved stopping distance, which is tested from a speed of 62 mph to 0 mph on dry surfaces, this is actually better by 11 feet shorter than the 2020 model.

Further advances that help drivers of the Tahoe Pursuit include its all-new independent rear suspension, a longer wheelbase that helps handling and ride smoothness for all civilian and law enforcement drives, particularly in the event of off-road use on uneven terrain and unpaved surfaces. The exterior design is based on the new Tahoe Z71 trim, which features a rugged front grille, higher approach angle and front skid plate. Nice features like standard keyless entry and push-to-start ignition are great to aid in speeding up the process to get back on the road. The  Tahoe PPV is offered in two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive configurations, the SSV is exclusively four-wheel-drive. This is easily the best Chevrolet Tahoe Pursuit yet.

Original of the Tahoe

The first-ever Tahoe used by law enforcement was over 23 years ago in 1997, when the first Pursuit-Rated Package was introduced. General Motors organized an official Law Enforcement Product Council three years after its inception to learn directly from officers how they can better perform their duties in a Pursuit vehicle. The council is composed of ranking law enforcement officers and civilian fleet managers. The 2021 Tahoe Police Pursuit Vehicle and the Special Service Vehicle will be assembled at General Motors’ Arlington Assembly in Texas with globally-sourced parts in late 2020 and ready to ship in the beginning of 2021.

Corvette Miami Lakes Automall

2020 Corvette Is Officially A Classic In Less Than A Year

Corvette Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: Chevrolet

The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette has transformed into an instant classic seemingly overnight. It has become an exclusive sports car with only 2,700 vehicles built so far due to the COVID-19 outbreak. This has allowed the brand new Corvette to undergo a true transformation. The prestige of the eighth-generation Corvette has grown because production will not resume for an unknown set of time. A resolved strike with the United Auto Workers (UAW) came just before Coronavirus would again slow down the rate the “C8” would be made. As a result, the slowdown for the production has helped make the 2020 Corvette that much more exclusive.

Good News For Chevrolet Fantastics

Despite the slowdown of production, the good news is that there will be a continued run for the 2020 Corvette (eventually) set to add a much larger set of availability. The bad news is that we don’t know when, but we currently have some Chevrolet Corvette models and ready to go for those who want to drive the Corvette. Keep in mind that to start 2020, Chevrolet was able to begin building the new Corvette in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Production began on February 3, 2020. The mid-engined Corvette finally began rolling off the assembly line, customers began taking delivery, but its launch derailed again when General Motors started to shut down its North American factories to curb the spread of the Coronavirus. Bowling Green built its final Corvette on March 20, according to Consumer Guide.

Where the 2020 Corvette Left Off

The place where the Corvette models are made is located in Bowling Green. Corvette Assembly plant manager revealed in an interview that exactly just 2,700 examples of the 2020 Corvette were built between February 3 and March 20, 2020. A spokesperson for Chevrolet told Autoblog that GM “will continue to build 2020 Corvette Stingrays when the plant resumes production.” So the total number of 2020 Corvettes is likely to increase, but we don’t imagine the increase of the production will grow exponentially. And that means the 2020 will become one of the rarest regular-production models in Corvette’s history. 

Corvette Sales At the Start of Each Decade

With less than 3,000 models moved, let’s remind customers how many Corvette models are sold. Chevrolet sold 10,261 units of the Corvette way back for the 1960 model year, 17,316 for the 1970 model year, and a whopping 40,614 in the 1980 model year. Sales for the 1990, 2000, and 2010 model years moved 23,464, 33,682, and 12,194, respectively. And, 34,822 seventh-generation cars were made during the 2019 model year, with 2,953 ZR1 models powered by a 755-horsepower V8 engine were sold. General Motors has stopped taking orders for the 2020 model. General Motors previously announced the production of the 2021 Corvette will start on September 1st, 2020. 

“Further information will be forthcoming from Chevrolet regarding the handling of sold 2020 model year [cars] that we will be unable to accept, and the creation of a replacement 2021 model year sold order,” the company told its dealers. This suggests customers waiting for a 2020 Corvette may end up with a 2021 model instead.

Future Chevrolet Corvette Models Will Offer Unparalleled Horsepower

Zora Miami Lakes Automall

Excited for a 1,000 horsepower Chevrolet Corvette? Most of our readers already expect this to be a reality sooner than later. The modern world has grown accustomed to learning practically everything about a vehicle before it becomes available for sale. From the first rumors and reports, bloggers and the interested fans keep speculation a year-round event for beloved brands and vehicles. One of those vehicles is the Chevrolet Corvette and how much better its performance is set to become. With the eighth-generation Corvette debut, the C8, many stories and quotes helped shape what future owners could expect. Whoever is behind creating some of the latest innovations for Chevrolet certainly has a leak issue, but we know why! 

No Secrets With the Chevrolet Corvette

There’s no denying the excitement of new Corvette news. There are always new stories that talk about the immense speed of a Corvette or upcoming news. There are new technical specifications that have been reported regarding the C8 in recent weeks that seem to confirm the long-standing report the new Chevrolet Corvette will indeed be the first one to boast 1,000 horsepower. That’s not the only news that has been discovered. In fact, Chevrolet’s own documents on the subject have leaked. In specific, there are details that have shown only a single engine owners can choose from. It’s a 6.2-Liter V8 powertrain that hits 490 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque standard. The engine is paired with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and rear-wheel-drive.

Upcoming Corvette Engine Ratings

For the upcoming Z06 model, this vehicle is set to debut for the 2023 model year with a 5.5-Liter V8 engine that has 650 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque. Compared to the previous Z06, that adds an additional 50 lb-ft of torque. By 2024, Chevrolet is reported to bring back the Grand Sport trim. The Grand Sport will return with a 600-horsepower, 500 lb-ft of torque engine, far surpassing the last Grand Sport that hit 460-horsepower. As for the ZR1 trim, owners will love the new twin-turbocharged version of the Z06’s eight called LT7 internally. A healthy 850 horsepower and 825 lb-ft of torque, and this will be launched for the 2025 model year.

But, perhaps the most talked about will be the Corvette flagship trim that is expected to hit that magical 1,000 horsepower mark. The same documents outline a gasoline-electric hybrid powertrain made up of a twin-turbocharged, 5.5-liter V8 engine and an unspecified form of electrification listed in the report about the four-digit horsepower powertrain. This will be a first for the regular-production, street-legal Corvette. Not to mention the monstrous 975 lb-ft of torque. The nameplate will be known as “Zora”, as Chevrolet trademarked that name back in 2019. The expectation for the Zora is years down the road however during the 2026 model year. Keep in mind, these specifications and dates are unofficial. But, we do know how our readers and customers can get into a new Chevrolet vehicle today!

C8 Miami Lakes Automall

Can The Corvette C8 Break A 10-Second Quarter-Mile Time?

C8 Miami Lakes Automall

Some diehard Chevrolet Corvette racing enthusiasts were skeptical about a mid-engine Corvette before its debut. For those that were committed to using their Corvette to fly down a drag strip, they can now opt to switch things up as one automotive specialist has done. Taking the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette, which is the first to feature a 15-inch wheel conversion, one Texan specialist team saw room for improvement. Let’s break down the changes to the new “C8” that has perked the ears of many racing enthusiasts in the Chevrolet community. Can the 2020 Corvette improve its time to go under 10 seconds on the strip?

How to Improve the Corvette For Drag Races

The thought behind changing up the all-new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette is not taken lightly. With the first move, a change was made to see the 15-inch wheels being moved and pushed back to ride on the rear axle. This allows for the considerably more generous tire sidewall to help provide traction for that all-important jump once a drag race starts. Note that the Chevy wheels come with a beadlock feature. For those who are used to drag racing, they are used to rubber being burned, but this move should help keep the rubber from burning fast. This move was supplied by Mickey Thompson. Anything to help tires keep rubber longer is a good thing. At least, that is the hope by this automotive specialist.

With the larger wheels added to the front, there will be more help to not only preserve a great start, but there is a chance to save the tires from burning out faster. The thicker 18-inch tires are built with a narrow form, as these skinnier tires generate less friction as the machine flies down the drag strip.

How to Make the C8 Fly Down the Strip

Many Drag Pack options have been compiled to improve the speed of the Corvette when racing them. Some have even involved 18-inch wheels on all four corners, but this mix of 18-inch and 15-inch tires converging is a first. Of course, this meant extra mods, since the smaller wheels required different brakes, along with added suspension work. The work was finished by Texan specialist LG Motorsport. Their work on the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette is unique and impressive. They also took the extra step to render the vehicle with stronger axles as the extra-sticky hardware increases stress on the drivetrain, so this modification works to help relieve that pressure.

Not Everything Needed Modifications

In order to push the 2020 Corvette on a drag strip, no changes were needed to improve the 6.2-Liter V8 powertrain. However, the Corvette is not different from any vehicle that races and just like a vehicle in any Fast and the Furious movie, LG Motorsport added a nitrous setup. While numerous developers have included power adders to the LT2 motor of the C8, LG Motorsport has not changed the factory ECU. Looking to break the record for the fastest C8 Corvette in the quarter-mile is a task that has competition as the time has recently been improved upon. The fastest time ever recorded is just 10.495s at a ridiculously fast speed of 130.89 mph. Not quite under 10-seconds but this might happen someday with more modifications. We’re sure all this talk about drag racing in a Corvette gives our readers the need for speed.

How the 2020 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison Can Handle Any Terrain!

Most pickup trucks do not provide the ability to have a driver immediately go off-road. The new 2020 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison-19, however, is a different animal. Chevrolet made sure to provide all the upgrades, including superior suspension and protective armor underneath the vehicle to ensure it’s safe and secure for off-road travel right off the bat. While this new Chevy product is a smooth ride while driving on a highway, it was built to handle nearly any surface. Going on adventures on trails means unpaved surfaces (mud, rocks, dirt, sand, and bumpy terrain) when owners of any vehicle go down the road less traveled. Let’s break down how far owners can really go with the Colorado ZR2.

Pickups Are Widely Popular, But Few Are Built Like This

The aforementioned suspension technology added to the Colorado ZR2 Bison was used in race cars like the Ford Mustang GT and Camaro ZL1 1LE. Built with Multimatic shocks, this is a vehicle that uses modern technology to carry on through nearly anything. Triple damper units were added along with analytical software that has been developed through racing over the years. Along with a two-speed electronic transfer case with trailering package that includes brake control, hill-descent control as well as a skid plate for the transfer case, this is a pickup ready from day one. The Colorado ZR2 also provides protection for the entire undercarriage of the Bison. There are few vehicles quite like the Bison and in its second year, it’s become even more impressive for owners to enjoy.

Additional Features of the Bison

How do modern pickups handle the off-road? They only can if they are fitted with the amenities that make it possible. Thank Chevy for thinking ahead with standard 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac tires. Chevrolet also provides 17-inch wheels with a hoop scoop, special bumpers, recovery hooks (can be very useful in a fix) and added off-road rocker protection. The standard 3.6-Liter V6 engine is a solid choice and owners can opt for the robust 2.8-Liter Duramax inline-four turbodiesel that produces 181 horsepower and a sturdy 369 lb-ft of torque and still hits a respectable 22 highway mpg. With all the support Chevrolet has built into this new 2020 Colorado ZR2 Bison, we are in love with this massive pickup. Currently, the 2020 Chevrolet Colorado is available and starts at $21,300 MSRP (Plus dealership fee). The 2020 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison begins at $42,400 MSRP (Plus destination fee).
