Medium Duty Trucks to Get Silverado Brand

Announcement Comes During Centennial Celebration

One of the biggest pieces of news at the Chevy Truck Centennial event held recently at the Texas State Fair was that the new Class 4 and 5 trucks from the automaker will receive the Silverado Brand. “The first Chevy truck was built in 1918 for small business owners, and we have been expanding the market ever since because customers want specialized trucks that can tow and haul with confidence,” according to Chevy Truck marketing director Sandor Piszar. The new Chevy Silverado 4500 and 5500 models will be available in both crew cab and regular cab configurations with either two- or four-wheel drive. See the new medium duty lineup in late 2018 when you visit Freeway Chevrolet in Chandler.

New Lineup Will Appeal to Business Owners

“We are earning new business because we have more solutions to help businesses grow,” said John Schwegman, director of Chevy’s Commercial Product division. “The Silverado 4500 and 5500 will stand out because we’ve designed the trucks around how customers work. They will be powerful, highly maneuverable and among the easiest trucks on the market to upfit with specialized bodies, such as dump bodies, rollbacks, freight boxes and more.” The new lineup of Chevy Silverado medium duty trucks will be powered by a combination of an Allison transmission and Duramax diesel engine. The Duramax diesel has almost two decades of service in the Chevy truck division with about 100 billion miles of real working experience. Allison is the largest designer of heavy duty automatic transmissions and provides equipment for a wide range of large applications, including trucks, RVs, fire trucks and the military. You can also expect the new selection of medium duty trucks to offer a full suite of technology, including 4G LTE Wi-Fi service so drivers can stay in touch with the home office.

Chevy Offers Complete Lineup of Trucks

Along with the extremely popular and dependable Chevy Silverado 1500 and 2500 HD models, Chevy has a wide selection of trucks and vans for home and business users. The midsize Colorado has earned Motor Trend’s Truck of the Year honors, offering the power and performance people need in a smaller truck. The City Express and Express Passenger and Cargo vans offer a variety of choice for business owners and people who need a large vehicle to haul either cargo or people. The new Low Cab Forward truck offers the versatility business owners need to haul items in a cargo box or flatbed.

Trax the Small SUV with Pioneer Spirit

Like the pioneers who made their way across America in the early years of our country, the new Chevy Trax is the small SUV that doesn’t fear to go where larger vehicles might tread. With a unique and versatile seating arrangement that allows you to carry cargo items up to eight feet long, the Trax is the perfect vehicle for the urban commuter who has the occasional need to haul large items. The Chevy Trax is small enough to maneuver into the smallest city parking spaces, but big enough to take on a weekend mountain adventure with your skis safely stored on the inside. Test drive the Trax today at Freeway Chevrolet.

Trax Equipped for Efficiency and Fun

The new Chevy Trax comes with a 1.4L turbocharged engine that delivers up to 33 mpg on the highway. It comes in three different trim packages with tons of available features, but even the bas LS model doesn’t skimp on the goodies. This model delivers the OnStar telemetry system with built-oin 4G LTE Wi-Fi, a rear view camera and remote keyless entry. A smooth-shifting 6-speed automatic transmission is standard on all models, as is the Stabilitrak system that helps you keep control when experiencing bad road conditions. The LT model is the next step up and includes a remote vehicle starter, halogen headlamps and LED taillamps. The Premier model is top-of-the-line and includes a power driver seat, leatherette seat trim and a killer Bose Premium Audio System.

Safety First out on Highway

The Trax may be small but it takes safety very seriously, with 10 standard air bags, a high-strength safety cage made out of steel and a number of available advanced safety systems that will help you avoid a collision. Side Blind Zone Alert warns when a vehicle is lurking in an area you can’t see in your side mirrors. Rear Cross Traffic Alert lets you know that vehicles or other obstacles are about to come across your path as you back up. Lane Departure Warning is an alert system that tells you when you move out of a lane without using your turn signals. It’s designed to cut down on lane drift on those long, lonely drives. Forward Collision Alert warns of a possible front-end crash, as well as alerts you when you might be following a vehicle too closely. Forward Automatic Braking applies the brakes if a front-end collision is imminent.

Stream Your Music Loud and Proud

Since the Chevy Trax has an infotainment system that’s compatible with both Android and Apple phone, you can stream your music and podcasts, as well as make hands-free phone calls and respond to text messages without taking your eyes off the road. Stay connected to the outside world by turning your Trax into a rolling hotspot by signing up for the 4G LTE Wi-Fi service. See all the technology and great features that make the Trax a great choice when you visit Freeway Chevrolet.

Chevy Spark is Kind of a Big Deal

Although it has a small footprint that makes it perfect for maneuvering through crowded urban spaces, the truth is with its low price, supreme fuel efficiency and sassy attitude, the Chevy Spark is kind of a big deal. Starting with a suggested price of just $13,050, the Spark is perfect for the everyday commuter, student or anyone who needs a fun, nimble car that won’t let them down. Test drive the Spark today at Freeway Chevrolet.

Little Spark Loaded with Standard Features

Don’t think that the Spark is a bare bones ride because of the low price. It comes with a comfortable interior, standard rear vision camera, Chevy MyLink 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system and much more. This nimble little commuter comes in four different trim packages, each offering an automatic or manual transmission. The base LS comes equipped with OnStar 4G LTE and the ability to turn your car into a Wi-Fi Hotspot. It also has a standard tire pressure monitoring system, a sporty rear spoiler, hill start assist and an electronic stability control system to help you stay on the road when conditions get bad.

1LT and 2LT Add More Amenities

Step up just a bit to the 1LT model and you get everything in the LS, along with a theft deterrent system, steering wheel-mounted controls for the audio and cruise control, Sirius XM Satellite Radio, fog lamps and remote keyless entry. The 2LT Automatic starts at just $18,350 and adds even more features, including a leather wrapped sport steering wheel, heated front seats and special chrome accents such as the door handle, liftgate trim and beltline moldings.

ACTIV is Top of Line

For a more rugged appearance and some additional features, choose the top-of-the-line Spark ACTIV mode. Along with a unique suspension package to offer sportier handling and a smoother ride, it has special 15-inch alloy wheels, roof rails and trim along the fenders and rocker panels. The black leatherette seats are heated and the interior features more upscale materials. All the Chevy Spark models are powered by a 1.4L Ecotec 4-cylinder engine that gets up to 38 mpg on the highway.

Spark is Small but Safe

Just because it’s small doesn’t mean the Spark isn’t safe. Each model is built with a high strength steel safety cage to protect you and your passengers. Of course, it’s best if you don’t have a wreck in the first place. That’s where the available forward collision alert, lane departure warning and rear park assist all come into play. These features use a combination of sensors and cameras to alert you to a possible collision. See all the features and get behind the wheel of the new Spark when you visit Freeway Chevrolet.

Providing unparalleled capability at an affordable price, the new Chevy Tahoe Custom edition is designed for people who need the power and size of a full-size SUV but have a limited budget. “The Tahoe Custom is a response to strong customer demand for Tahoe, as well as the full-size SUV segment moving upmarket,” according to Chevy Trucks marketing director Sandor Piszar. “In the past five years, the average transaction price for the segment has climbed fueled by customer appetite for features like heated and cooled seats, adaptive cruise control and a heads-up display. This created an unmet need in the marketplace for customers who want the cargo and towing capability of a full-size SUV to go camping, boating or off0roading, but don’t necessarily want all of the option content offered on a Tahoe Premier.” The new Custom Tahoe will be available at Freeway Chevrolet in Chandler starting next month.

Based on LS Trim Package

With a starting retail price of $44,995, the Tahoe Custom is on the lower end of the price ladder for full-size SUVs. That’s pretty amazing, especially when you consider all the Custom has to offer. Along with towing capacity of 6,600 pounds and a whopping 112 cubic feet of cargo space, the Tahoe Custom features a 5.3L V8 that produces 355 horsepower while still earning 23 mpg on the highway. Chevy started with the LS trim package when it designed the Tahoe Custom, then added a chrome accent grille, 18-inch aluminum wheels and all-season tires. The Chevy Tahoe Custom had the third seat removed, creating more cargo space in the back for hauling.

Stay Connected with New Tahoe

The Chevy Tahoe Custom doesn’t skimp on the ability for drivers and passengers to stay connected with the outside world. It features an 8-inch color touchscreen infotainment system that works with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to stream music, podcasts, audiobooks and make and receive phone calls and text messages. A standard rear vision camera helps you avoid backing over obstacles, and remote start gives you the ability to start the engine and heat or cool the Tahoe while you stay comfortable in your home or office. Teen driver mode comes standard on all Tahoe Custom models, giving parents the ability to monitor their child’s driving habits. There are plenty of power and USB outlets sprinkled throughout the Tahoe cabin, giving everyone the ability to keep their electronic devices fully charged. Check in soon with Freeway Chevrolet to see about giving the new Tahoe Custom a test drive.

Stingray Delivers Daily Dose of Adrenaline

Keep your pony cars and foreign invaders. The Chevy Corvette Stingray is the iconic American sports car, still dominating the road after more than 60 years. The Stingray was first introduced in 1953 and became an instant hit as thousands of GIs became both emotionally and financially invested in the innovative design following World War II. No one had seen anything like the Corvette before, and the 2017 model remains a great example of functional art that’s as beautiful to look at standing still as it is motoring down the road. Check in with Freeway Chevrolet to learn more about the historic Stingray and schedule a test drive.

Interior Fits Like a Driving Glove

Slip into the cockpit of the new Chevy Corvette Stingray and you can be forgiven for imagining you’re in control of a jet fighter. The sculpted design is made from premium mateirals, with available Napa leather seating and firm bolsters embracing you as you power thorugh corners. The hand stitching is available in a variety of contrasting colors, letting you personalize your Stingray. All the controls are within easy reach, including steering wheel-mounted audio and cruise control. The seats are available with both heating and ventilation, adding a bit of comfort and sophistication to your drive.

Choose Your Transmission

If you’re fully into the driving experience that comes with a short-throw shifter, choose the 7-speed manual transmission with active rev matching to deliver the ultimate performance from each power range. If you like to choose between letting the transmission doing the work and shifting when you feel like it, an 8-speed paddle shift automatic transmission is available. Both are mated with a monstrous 6.2L V8 engine that delivers 460 horsepower. That’s enough to make the run from 0-60 mph in just 3.7 seconds, leaving you and your passenger breathless and smiling. Of course, with that kind of speed comes the need to stop quickly, so the Chevy Corvette Stingray comes with Brembo brakes to provide the ultimate stopping power.

Be Part of the Club

Corvette owners are part of an exclusive club that comes with special benefits. Once you purchase your new Corvette you can take advantage of a two-day driving lesson at the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School. You’ll learn how to get the most out of your Corvette with techniques such as heel/toe shifting, cornering and more on a closed track. If you’ve always dreamed of owning a Corvette but never could quite pull the trigger, see how affordable one can be by visiting Freeway Chevrolet in Chandler.

myChevrolet App Now Linked With Apple Watch

Folks who love new technology will be thrilled that Chevrolet is now offering the use of the myChevrolet app on their Apple Watch. The ability to control important vehicle functions is now as easy as turning your wrist and pointing a finger, giving consumers the ability to start and stop their car, truck or SUV, lock the doors or even find their vehicle in a crowded parking lot. “The use of the myChevrolet app by our owners continues to grow across the entire vehicle lineup, so expanding its availability to Apple Watch was a natural next step and allows us to offer another easy way to manage key vehicle functions remotely,” according to Paul Edwards of Chevrolet. “Whether you want to cool down your Malibu on a hot summer day or locate it after attending a crowded baseball game, Chevrolet owners can now make that choice from their iPhone or Apple Watch.” Get a thorough demonstration on how the myChevrolet app can make your daily commute easier when you visit Freeway Chevrolet.

myChevrolet App Increasing in Popularity

Almost 1.4 million Chevy drivers use the myChevrolet app frequently to make daily transportation a little less mundane. Malibu owners are the most frequent users of the app, although the Silverado and Equinox drivers are closing ground rapidly. Malibu owners used the app nearly 9 million times last year, up 44 percent from the previous year. “The myChevrolet app allows customers to interact with their vehicle in a variety of ways, like checking vehicle diagnostics, sending navigation requests or locking the doors,” according to GM executive John McFarland. “As a result, customers who use the myChevrolet mobile app are some of our most loyal and satisfied customers.”

OnStar Started the App Explosion

The use of remote vehicle commands through smartphone apps began for Chevy owners in 2010 when OnStar launched the Remotelink app. Chevy introduced the myChevrolet app to work in conjunction with the OnStar app in 2016 to give drivers easier access to roadside help, the owner’s manual, Wi-Fi management and other key features. Remote start is one of the most popular features of the myChevrolet app, allowing drivers to bring their interior temperatures to comfortable levels without setting foot outside the house or office. For a thorough explanation of how all the app functions operate, stop by Freeway Chevrolet in Chandler today for an inspection of the new Chevy lineup and a test drive.

With a design that’s sculpted to perform, the sixth-generation Chevy Camaro is a worthy addition to a lineage of sports cars that now dates back 50 years. It was 1967 when Chevy introduced the Camaro into the Pony Car wars. That version became an instant classic, but for sheer beauty and performance you can’t do any better than the model available now for test drive and purchase at Freeway Chevrolet. If you’re planning a summer road trip, a new Camaro is just the ticket for a fun and memorable ride.

No Compromise in Four Engine Choices

Whether you choose the efficient 2.0L Turbo, the 3.6L V6, 6.2L LT1 V8 or 6.2L LT4 V8, the entire Camaro engine line offers performance and driving dynamics to thrill any enthusiast. The smallest engine is still big enough to post an impressive 5.4 second elapsed time from 0 to 60 mph, while producing 275 horsepower and a pretty staggering 31 mpg on the highway. Step up to the V6 and you get 335 horsepower while cutting the 60 mph run down to 5.1 seconds. The LT1 V8 reduces the run to 60 mph to just 4 seconds flat while producing an identical 455 horsepower and pound-feet of torque. For the ultimate in power, choose the LT4 V8. With the addition of a 1.7L Eaton supercharger, this motor takes you from a dead stop to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds while generating an unbelievable 650 horses.

ZL1 for Those Serious About Driving

For the ultimate in performance, handling and pure driving thrills, the new Chevy Camaro ZL1 has the ability to go head-to-head with any advanced sports coupe on the planet. Along with the powerful LT4 engine, the ZL1 has an available 10-speed paddle shift automatic that gets the most out of every power range the transmission has to offer. Standard magnetic ride control delivers supreme handling that adjusts on the fly to road conditions and your foot on the accelerator. Performance seats are heavily bolstered to keep you comfortable and firmly in place as you try to better your track times.

Choose Accessories to Personalize Your Ride

Whether you choose the ZL1, a base coupe or the Chevy Camaro convertible, Freeway Chevrolet has the accessories to make your new Camaro stand out from the crowd. A ground effects kit can make even the least expensive Camaro look bad to the bone, while cargo management options like bike racks and cargo nets make your sports car more versatile. Portable Bluetooth speakers, special wheels and trim for both the exterior and interior are excellent ways to make your new Camaro a bit different from the crowd.

Bolt First EV to get Top Safety Pick Award

As the only all-electric (EV) to ever win a Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the new Chevy Bolt keeps eliminating reasons for consumers not to buy an EV. One of the biggest reasons customers have given for not buying an EV is the lack of range. With the ability to go up to 238 miles on a single charge, the Bolt has pretty much killed that argument against electrification. Now, by scoring high in all categories of IIHS testing, the Bolt proves that a small EV can also be extremely safe. Be the first in line to test drive the new Bolt when it makes an appearance at Freeway Chevrolet.

Good Across the Board

To earn the Top Safety Pick rating from the IIHS, vehicles must score “Good” in all the categories relating to collision and either “Superior” or “Advanced” in testing of head-on crashes. When equipped with the automatic braking and forward collision warning, the Bolt earned all the necessary “Good” ratings and scored “Superior” in frontal crashes. The Bolt puts an emphasis on safety, with 10 standard air bags, a rearview camera, a body that liberally uses high-strength steel in the safety cage and beyond, and a whole suite of available driver assistance safety features including blind spot alert, rear cross traffic monitoring and the ability to detect unseen pedestrians.

Battery and Drive Unit Key to Bolt Ability

Chevrolet engineers spent a great deal of time designing the integration of the Bolt EV drive system to make the car not only realistic in terms of range and power, but also fun to drive. “Being the leader in range and affordability means nothing if the car isn’t going to excite you each time you get behind the wheel,” according to Bolt chief engineer Josh Tavel. “That’s why the team was tasked with delivering a propulsion system that would also make the Bolt EV an electric vehicle that owners would love to drive.” By utilizing an offset gear and drive shaft model that works with an electronic shift system, engineers were able to not only deliver power and efficiency, but save space for customer comfort. The 60-kWh lithium ion battery pack includes 288 lithium ion cells divided into five different sections. The result is a battery system that produces the desired level of energy and power and has the ability to fully recharge overnight from a 240V wall box. For a quick freshening, the Chevy Bolt can get a charge equivalent to 90 miles of driving in just 30 minutes using DC Fast Charging. The Bolt, Motor Trend’s Car of the Year, will be available soon at Freeway Chevrolet.

Most Dependable, Longest Lasting Truck

It offers best-in-class fuel economy, horsepower and maximum towing ability, a trifecta unmatched by any other truck manufacturer. Along with unparalleled performance, the Silverado offers creature comforts in the cabin that rival the luxury of premium sedans. Inlaid doors with triple seals combine with an aerodynamic windshield to keep outside noise where it belongs–on the outside. That allows you to enjoy concert quality sound from a variety of infotainment systems that also offer navigation and unlimited data through a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.

Variety of Models for Every Taste

The Chevy Silverado offers eight different trim packages and nine special editions to suit every taste and pocketbook. If you just need a basic truck that won’t let you down, the Silverado Work Truck is an extremely affordable option.

Inquire about all the different trim levels and special editions when you visit Freeway Chevrolet.

EcoTec3 Engines Deliver Power and Efficiency

When you purchase your new Silverado, you’ll have your choice of three different EcoTec3 engines that not only deliver plenty of horsepower, but offer phenomenal fuel economy for a full-size pickup. The 4.3L V6 produces 285 horsepower and is rated to tow 7,600 lbs., more than enough for most recreational needs. That motor delivers an estimated 24 mpg on the highway and 18 in the city. Move up to the 5.3L V8 and your horsepower jumps to 355 with the ability to tow 11,100 lbs. Surprisingly, all that power comes at little sacrifice to mileage, as this engine rates 23 mpg in the city. For the most power, consider the 6.2L V8 that produces 420 horses and 460 pound-feet of torque. That’s enough to tow 12,500 pounds and still have a rating of 21 mpg on the highway.

Zl1 1LE Takes Camaro to New Heights

With an iconic history that dates back to the pony car wars of the 1960s, the Chevy Camaro has gone through a lot of iterations and been responsible for some of the most sensational thrill rides in U.S. automotive history. That’s why it’s really saying something when Chevy announced that the new ZL1 1LE Track Performance Package has turned the latest generation into the fastest Camaro ever produced. “In the long, storied history of Camaro performance, there’s never been another model that matches the capability of the ZL1 1LE,” according to Chevy marketing director Steve Majoros. “With the addition of the new 650-horsepower Zl1 1LE, the Camaro lineup is more diverse and exciting than ever, offering customers the ability to select and personalize their ultimate performance car.”

ZL1 1LE Package All About Performance

If you’re just looking for a fun drive in the mountains on a weekend, you probably don’t need to spend the additional $7,500 for the ZL1 1LE Extreme Performance Track Package. If, however, you’re all about lowering track times and being behind the wheel of a true race car, there’s a good chance that will be money well spent. The ZL1 1LE package includes a carbon rear wing, dive planes on the front fascia and air deflectors that help the car stick to the asphalt in hairpin turns. You’ll also get an adjustable suspension with dampers you can control to offer top-notch vehicle and wheel control. Lightweight wheels and special tires are part of the package, delivering a maximum grip of 1.10g. Powering the ZL1 1LE is the supercharged LT4 motor that generates 650 horsepower. Check in with Freeway Chevrolet to see about ordering this superstar of the Camaro lineup.

Lots of Choices in Camaro Lineup

Along with the ZL1, the Chevy Camaro is offered in SS, LT and LS trim levels. You can get any of the models in either a hardtop coupe of convertible. When the 2018 model goes on sale at Freeway Chevrolet this summer, you’ll also be able to buy a Redline Edition, which is a stealth-like offering that features a black bowtie on the front and rear, grille with red accents and special graphics. The Redline Edition also comes with dark taillamps, black mirrors and large 20-inch aluminum black wheels with red features. The latest generation of the Camaro is built around a smaller architecture than previous models and offers more responsive braking and the ability to attack corners with an athletic zeal. Every crease and angle was designed to deliver greater performance, a result verified with thousands of hours of wind tunnel testing.
