Chevrolet Shifts Focus to Electric Vehicles

Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Bolt EV Charging

Well, there’s some interesting news going down over at Chevrolet, under the automotive umbrella of the General Motors group. If unawares, General Motors is starting to pick up their slack when it comes to getting on the bandwagon for zero emission propulsion and powertrains. With the upsurge of electrified and alternative fuel vehicles estimated in the coming years, GM is not one to fall behind, and with Chevrolet already having moderate success in alternative fuel with the Chevrolet Bolt EV, a large change is about to take place. Chevy will be shifting away from the Chevrolet Camaro to focus on electrified vehicles (EVs).

Competitor automotive group Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has already unveiled their plans for going electric with many vehicles already underway. To keep up, GM is making some decisive moves. Car and Driver were there to report on the newest announcement.

“Al Oppenheiser, chief engineer and spiritual leader of the Chevrolet Camaro program for more than a decade, is moving to General Motors’ newly formed AV/EV organization to focus on zero-emission-vehicle development.”

Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Configurator Build

Are you ready for your own 2019 Chevrolet Silverado? An icon of the automaker, this pickup truck has made a name for itself over the last 100 years. The Chevrolet Silverado even got a special Centennial Edition in 2017, commemorating 100 years of Chevy pickup trucks. 100 years, and the good news still keeps pouring in. For one thing, Chevrolet has introduced a special edition for the 2019 model year that literally give us goosebumps – the 2019 Chevy Silverado Trail Boss Z71 turned into the Chevrolet Hennessey Goliath. Now, with the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado heading to dealerships, consumers can finally build their own.

Building Your 2019 Chevrolet Silverado

Although shipped out, the 2019 Chevy Silverado is currently being delivered in low quantity (as of November 8, 2018). Dealership lots will receive more as orders are placed, but for now, enjoy the thought of building one. Known as the “all-new” Silverado, being in its fourth generation for 2019, the configurator (bit.ly/2DtM9y1) has been designed to show off some of the new features and available options, like modern technology or an off-road package.

Although the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado has a starting MSRP of $28,300 (plus destination fee), the first build to pop up in the configurator is for $49,795 (plus destination fee). This will give consumers an idea of the differences something as simple as the cab size, drivetrain, or engine can make, before even a trim is chosen. The default setup is a double cab with a standard bed, four-wheel drive, and the 5.3-liter EvoTec V8 engine with Dynamic Fuel Management (DFM). Changing either of these will show the consumer the new net price in the top right in real-time.

Miami Lakes 2019 Chevy Silverado

The wait is almost over – in only a few more months the new 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 will be out and ready to drive. The new pickup truck will have new and exemplary features, including a bigger and stronger bed and also a powerful, yet, fuel efficient engine. To add to those amazing improvements to the luxurious interior and entertainment system is definitely something to get excited about.

Each 2019 Chevy Silverado will have bigger and better truck beds. These beds are made of steel to make sure that each bed can hold as much weight as possible and be as durable. In fact, this new bed can hold one and a half times the amount of strength of its predecessor, making it that much more awesome. The bed is also strategically designed as two pieces.

The reason for this is because of the conservation of space – Having the bed made of two pieces saves weight and makes for a 23 percent increase of space for the bed. With that being said, there is an added amount of almost seven inches of floor width space. For convenience, there is a button on every key fob of the vehicle to open and close the tailgate, and another great and easy option is to press a button to do the same for opening the tailgate of the bed from within the cabin of the vehicle.

Miami Lakes Chevy 2017 PHEV EV Hybrid

Chevy has joined the evolving world of electric and hybrid vehicles, and they’re making a lot of noise with their awesome line up of hybrids, PHEVs, and EVs. Already out for the 2017 model year is the 2017 Chevy Volt, 2017 Chevy Malibu Hybrid, and soon-to-be-released, the all-electric Chevy Bolt EV. Check ‘em out.

2017 Chevy Bolt EV

For those not in the know, “EV” stands for electric vehicle, and the all-new 2017 Chevy Bolt is an all-electric zero emissions vehicle with quite the range. Chevy shocked everyone when they released specs on how far the Bolt can go. On a fully charged battery, the Bolt has a range of 238 miles, which is 25 more miles than the Tesla Model 3 is expected to get (when it is released). Additionally, the Bolt can charge about 25 miles for every hour of charging when using a 240-volt charger (the fast option).

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! (more…)

0-60 in a Flash in Miami, Chevrolet Track Times and Tracks

Monday, August 22nd, 2016

In Miami, Chevrolet Camaros and Corvettes fit in quite well. Miami is fast and all about the looks, so a Chevy Camaro or Corvette is an excellent vehicle when cruising South Beach. Aside from beach cruising, if you live in Miami and drive a Chevy Camaro or Corvette, you can also test out your car’s horsepower and speed on the local tracks — have you been yet?

If you are looking for a good Miami Chevrolet dealership to purchase a hot and fast car or to find out a nearby track you can test your Chevy out, we have you covered at Miami Lakes Automall.  Read below for track info and the Chevy Camaro and Corvette track times.

Where to test your Chevrolet in Miami

There are two local tracks within a short drive from Miami where Chevy Camaro and Chevy Corvette drivers can test their car and the speedways on certain days– Homestead Miami Speedway and Palm Beach International Speedway. You may not be able to get track times as a beginner driver and if you do you should consider it as your next profession. Regardless, it is cool to see how fast your car can really go on an open road.

Every Friday, the Homestead Miami Speedway hosts Fast Lane Friday, a legal drag racing event for car enthusiasts and street legal cars. At Fast Lance Friday, drivers can race their cars against other street-legal cars on the drag strip as many times as they would like throughout the night. Additionally, there are driving courses offered throughout the month where race professionals can teach you the ins and outs of getting the maximum performance from your car on the track.  The Homestead Miami Speedway is located at 1 Speedway Blvd. in Homestead.

North of Homestead is the Palm Beach International Speedway and it also too offers car owners the opportunity to test their cars out on the track. The Palm Beach International Speedway has the Palm Beach Driving Club (PBDC), a members-only club offering weekly, year-round track programs to automotive enthusiasts exclusively at the track. The Palm Beach International Speedway is located at 17047 Beeline Hwy. in Jupiter.

Chevy Corvette and Camaro track times

The Chevy Corvette is one of the most-loved American performance cars. Unlike the Dodge Charger, Challenger and Chevy Camaro, the Corvette is a refined and sleek sports car. Two Corvette trims that are specifically designed for are the Corvette Stingray and Corvette Z06. (more…)
