Bring a Little Adventure to Your Life

The 2017 Chevy Spark ACTIV offers an increased ride height and skid plates that allow drivers to explore some of life’s wilder trails. The urban-chic design of the new Spark allows you to be an urban driver during the week, then take off for an adventure on the weekend to parts previously unknown. “The new Spark ACTIV is all about adventurous fun and style,” according to Steve Majoros, Chevy marketing director. “It has an attitude, while still offering the sophisticated, efficient and connected driving experience customers have come to love.” The new Spark ACTIV will arrive at the Freeway Chevrolet showroom in the first quarter of 2017.

ACTIV Comes With Tons of Standard Features

Along with the revised suspension that raises the clearance by about a half-inch and the skid plates to protect important components, the new ACTIV offers unique features such as round fog lamps, contrasting moldings and a special grille with prominent ACTIV badging. Starting at just $16,945 when equipped with a manual transmission, the Spark ACTIV also comes with an upscale interior that includes heated leatherette seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and and infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen. Compatibility with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto means you can use your smartphone to stream music, play podcasts or use a number of limited apps.

Spark ACTIV Loaded with Tech

You get three free months of 4G LTE Wi-Fi service with your new Spark ACTIV, allowing you to have Internet access wherever your adventures may roam, within cell service limitations. You’ll also get three free months of SiriusXM satellite radio and OnStar telemetry. A rear camera, cruise control, remote entry, power windows and steering wheel audio and communication controls are all standard features.

Compact Spark Both Roomy and Safe

Fold down the rear seat on the 2017 Spark and you get a roomy 27.2 cubic feet of storage, or enough to hold plenty of camping gear for your outdoor adventure. The peppy 1.4L Ecotec engine not only gives you enough power to get over any mountain pass, but also delivers a hybrid-like 37 mpg on the highway. The 2017 Chevy Spark also comes in LS, 1LT and 2LT trim packages starting at just $13,875. You can choose from manual transmission or automatic with any trim, proving that good things do come in small packages. See and test drive the new Spark today at Freeway Chevrolet.

Sophisticated Style on Display at SEMA

The recent SEMA auto show in Las Vegas was the perfect venue for Chevrolet to unveil its Malibu and Cruz “Blue Line” concept vehicles. Giving customers the option to personalize their cars is the thought behind the Blue Line series, which features a more sophisticated look with an athletic stance. “The Chevrolet Blue Line Series concepts integrate accessories that offer greater personalization choices for customers,” according to parts marketing director Roger McCormack. “Each vehicle wears production and concept accessories thematically linked under the Blue Line Series banner. We look forward to gauging public reaction at the SEMA show and other venues.” See what kind of official Chevy parts and accessories are available to customize your ride by stopping in to the parts department at Freeway Chevrolet.

Malibu Combines Traditional Look With Modern Feel

By providing a traditional look with a Genesis White paint job, the Malibu Blue Line concept creates a blank slate around which to build a modern, athletic vehicle. An official Chevy suspension lowering kit brings the ride height down by about a half-inch, providing a more sporty look and better handling. The lowered look is accented by a ground effects kit with rear diffuser. A black grille insert and black Bowtie logo highlight the front. Inside there are special sport pedals, metal badging on the floor liners and illuminated door sills. A concept performance braking kit, tinted headlights and polished exhaust round out the concept vehicle.

Cruze Concept Builds Off RS Hatchback

Chevy started with a sporty RS Hatchback to build its Cruze Blue Line concept. Also painted Genesis White, the Cruz looks either white or gray depending on the lighting. Blue tinted windows and blue metallic 18-inch wheels provide a colorful accent. Head to the parts department at Freeway Chevrolet and you can get the same chrome grill insert and suspension lowering kit that designers used on the Cruze Concept. A performance brake package will be available by the end of this year, and performance air intake and exhaust systems are coming by next summer. The concept vehicle features a special black interior with graphite accents on the doors, shift knob and instrument panel. You can modify your Cruze now with the same sport pedal kit, interior trim and illuminated door sills used in the show vehicle. Remember that when Freeway Chevrolet installs any accessories or performance parts, your new car warranty remains unaffected.

Chevy Keeps Piling Up Industry Awards

11-freeway-chevrolet

JD Power Honors Prove Quality and Dependability

If you’re looking for a car, truck or SUV that’s going to be there for the long haul, the awards say smart shoppers will consider a Chevy. Chevrolet was the most honored car company by the research institute J.D. Power last year, earning top Initial Quality and Dependability awards for the Spark, Camaro, Tahoe, Equinox, Silverado and Malibu. The awards are a result of an independent poll of customers after the first 90 days of ownership, proving that Chevrolet customers are happy with their purchase long after the new car smell starts to fade away. See why Americans love their Chevy by taking a look at the new car inventory at Freeway Chevrolet.

Chevy Has Most Awards of Any Company

Along with the prestigious honors from JD Power, Chevy has also piled up a mountain of awards from various auto industry sources. From the tiny Spark to the family-friendly Suburban, virtually every model has won multiple honors. Motor Trend magazine’s car and truck of the year for 2016 were the Chevy Camaro and Colorado. The Colorado also scored honors from U.S. News and World Report as the best compact truck for the money, and from Kelley Blue Book as the winner in the 5-year “Cost to Own” category, as well as having the best resale value. Chevy’s Tahoe, a leader in the full-size SUV market, earned honors from Kelley Blue Book as a Best Buy, as well as being one of the “Best 15 Family Cars.”

Looking For Fuel Efficient SUV?

If you’re looking for a fuel efficient SUV that does the job whether you’re in the office carpool or official driver for your kid’s softball team, you need to explore the Chevy Equinox. This capable people carrier has earned JD Power’s top honor for two years in a row, as well as being named the “Most Dependable Compact SUV.” It’s also a top safety pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. And don’t forget it does all this while still delivering an efficient 32 mpg on the highway. If you need something just a bit bigger, the Traverse is a midsize SUV that was honored by U.S. News and World Report as well as industry watchdog Edmunds.

Corvette and Camaro Deliver Sporty Fun

We get it. You’re not quite ready for the SUV and you’d like a little more performance than that offered by an economic compact. Head to Freeway Chevrolet and compare the different models of the Camaro and Corvette. The Camaro, one of the most popular pony cars in America, was named to Car and Driver’s “10Best” list for 2016 and remains at the top of the JD Power rankings. The Corvette, that sports car that’s an iconic part of Americana, was named a Kelley Blue Book Best Buy, as well as having the best resale value in 2015. Edmunds also picked the Corvette as its Top-Rated Coupe.

2018 Equinox Offers Multi-Turbo Lineup

11-freeway-chevrolet

Compact SUV Only One to Offer Diesel

With a choice of three engines, including a 1.6L turbo-diesel, the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox offers consumers more variety than any other compact SUV. Whether you choose the 1.5L turbo, 2.0L turbo or the diesel, the Equinox has the vehicle to fit your transportation needs. “With three choices, customers can select an engine that offers more of the attributes that are important to them: efficiency, performance and capability,” according to Dan Nicholson, VP of Global Propulsion Systems. “The advantage for each is the power of a larger engine and the fuel economy of a smaller engine.” The multi-engine turbocharged lineup is a first for Chevy in North America. See all the options and make your choice with a visit to Freeway Chevrolet.

Choose from Ultra-efficient, Power or Torque

The three engines offer three unique choices for SUV buyers. Pick the smaller engine and you get ample horsepower, but outstanding 31 mpg efficiency on the highway. Opt for the larger gas engine and horsepower climbs to 252 with a wide range of top torque for towing and quick acceleration. That engine gives the Equinox a 3,500 pound trailering capacity, more than enough for small recreational needs. The 2.0L engine only costs you about 3 mpg on the highway. Diesels are known for their low-end torque, and the Equinox doesn’t disappoint. With 236 pound-feet of torque at 2,000 rpm, the diesel engine continues to maintain power through a broad range thanks to a variable-geometry turbo charger. This diesel is also one of the most refined in the industry, with stop/start technology.

Turbocharging all the Rage at Chevrolet

The Equinox is not the only Chevy taking advantage of the extra compression generated by a turbocharger. Camaro, Malibu, Cruze, Sonic and Trax all have gas turbo options. The Colorado and Silverado pickup have a turbo-diesel engine available. Stepping on the gas to kick in the turbos increases the power without affecting the efficiency of the engine under light loads. The 2.0L gas turbo in the Equinox is paired with a new 9-speed automatic transmission that has smaller delineations between gears to increase efficiency and provide a smooth ride. Thanks to some clever linear design, the 9-speed transmission is roughly the same weight as the old 6-speed. You can test drive the 2018 Chevy Equinox and all three engine choices next spring when it arrives at the Freeway Chevrolet showroom.

Tahoe, Suburban Ready to Seize the Night

New for 2017, the Tahoe and Suburban LT models are offered with a Midnight Edition package. The LT Midnight includes all of the features found on both the LT trim levels of Suburban and Tahoe and adds 20” black wheels, all-season tires, roof rack cross rails, black assist steps and black Chevrolet “bow tie” logos.

LT, Z71 Get Blackout Treatment

If traveling in stealth mode in the dead of the night is your favorite way to travel, Chevrolet has some very good news. Both of their full-size SUVs, the Tahoe and Suburban, are offering a Midnight Edition package for the LT and Z71 trim levels. Both packages feature an exclusive black paint job, with trim and special accessories that will make your SUV stand out from the crowd during the day and all but disappear when night falls. “Our SUV customers have shown a considerable appetite for specialty vehicles,” according to Chevy marketing manager Mike Weidman. “The Midnight Editions allow us to further deliver on the premium expectation that our customers already have for these class-leading full-size SUVs.” Check in with the pros at Freeway Chevrolet to see when the Midnight Editions will be available for inspection.

Z71 Prepares You for Off-Roading

The Z71 Midnight Edition package comes with all the goodies of the regular Z71 trim level plus a few more. Chevy’s Z71 has long been associated with the ultimate in off-roading by providing specialty items like skid plates, tubular side steps, tow hooks, fog lamps and special off-road tires. You also get a four-wheel drive system that provides extra control when going down a steep grade, a large capacity air cleaner and suspension that’s tuned to absorb the big bumps. Both the Chevy Tahoe and Suburban with the Midnight Edition package add large black Z71 wheels, cross rails for a roof rack, a grille insert that’s black, and, of course, the black Chevy bowtie logo on the front. The LT package includes the same Midnight Edition extras without all the Z71 off-road accessories.

Teen Driver Standard on Both SUVs

If you have a new licensee in your family, you’ll be pleased to know that Chevy has now added its Teen Driver package as standard equipment in both the 2017 Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe. Designed to help teens focus on the task at hand and not become distracted, Teen Driver can let parents see how fast the vehicle went, how far it went and how many times any safety features were activated during the drive. It also won’t turn the radio on until all seat belts are fastened.

Tahoe, Suburban Sales on Rise

As the two most popular full-size SUVs in America, the Tahoe and Suburban continue to rock sales during this calendar year. The Tahoe, which offers three-row seating and plenty of towing capability, shows sales 15 percent of last year’s total. The larger Suburban, the perfect vehicle for big families, shows a 30 percent increase. See why America loves these two vehicles when you head to Freeway Chevrolet for a test drive.

September Brings Football, Tailgating and Car Deals

When the calendar turns from August to September, it signals a multitude of good things for Arizonans. First, and definitely most popular, it means the nighttime temperatures begin to drop, which leads to daytime temps getting back into the human range. September also means football comes back, where you can cheer for your favorite team after a couple of hours tailgating with friends.

Chevy Returns to Medium Duty Truck Market

With the impending arrival of Low Cab Forward trucks to dealerships like Freeway Chevrolet, the giant auto and truck maker is staking a claim for a large share of the medium duty truck market share. The Low Cab Forward trucks add to the expansive truck catalog that includes the mid-size Colorado, half-ton Silverado and a wide range of heavy duty pickups. “We’re in the business of helping our commercial customers succeed, and a big part of that is providing the vehicle choices they need to efficiently operate their businesses,” according to GM Fleet VP Ed Peper. “Our new Low Cab Forward trucks are the answer for our customers who require expansive payload, cargo hauling capabilities and exceptional maneuverability.”

Great Visibility Combines With Tight Turning Radius

The Chevy Low Cab Forward trucks are made for customers who need more capability than a pickup or cargo van provides, but less truck than a tractor/trailer combination. With a tight turning radius and phenomenal visibility, the Low Cab Forward trucks are perfect for making deliveries in crowded urban areas, where places to back up and turn around are extremely limited. You can either get a crew cab or regular cab with a maximum GVWR of 19,500 pounds. Choose from either a 3.0L turbo-diesel, 5.2L turbo-diesel or 6.0L V8 gasoline engine. All trucks come with a standard 6-speed automatic transmission.

Build Out to Suit Your Needs

Because the Low Cab Forward trucks are just a cab, chassis and powertrain, you can work with the pros at Freeway Chevrolet to have the cargo area built out to suit your needs. If you’re a plumber or electrician, you may want to have locking exterior cabinets to let you grab parts and tools quickly. Light delivery companies may just want a plain box, while others may need a box with a hydraulic lift on the back. “Drivers will love this truck because it’s comfortable, versatile and easy to drive, but the thing that will set us apart for owners-operators and fleet managers is ease of service through a nationwide network of Chevrolet commercial dealers,” according to GM Fleet director of commercial product, John Schwegman. Pricing for the Low Cab Forward trucks begins at just $40,900.

Chevy Has Large Lineup of Commercial Products

Whether you need a Low Cab Forward truck, cargo van or just a sturdy Silverado, Chevy has flexible solutions that help solve your business transportation needs. Talk to the people at Freeway Chevrolet about the many accessories and packages that can make your new truck perfectly fit your transportation needs. Chevy even has an OnStar telemetry package that reports details on your entire fleet, including speed, required maintenance, fuel efficiency and more.

Chevy Adding Special Edition SUVs for 2017

The Equinox Midnight (shown) and Sport Editions and Traverse Graphite Edition join the Trax Midnight Edition and a growing portfolio of Chevrolet special-edition vehicles. Equinox and Traverse combined sales are up double digits in the month of July as crossovers continue to be hot segments.

Special Packages Popular With Young Customers

Fresh on the heels of a number of special packages for the Silverado in 2016, Chevy announced that the Equinox and Traverse SUVs will be receiving special treatment in 2017. Even though the midsize SUV continues to be a hot property for Chevy, with sales constantly increasing, the lure of special paint jobs, accessories, trim and badging is often a great way to bring new customers to the fold. The special edition Silverado, for example, sells three times as fast as other trucks and frequently to young consumers. Stay in touch with Freeway Chevrolet to see when these special SUVs will be available for a test drive.

Equinox Choice as Plain as Black and White

The 2017 Equinox is being offered in both a Midnight and Sport special edition. As you might guess, the Midnight package includes a Mosaic Black Metallic paint job. The Sport model is offered in Summit White. Both of these packages come on the upscale LT model with the convenience package. Both the Midnight and Sport are equipped with black grilles, including the iconic bowtie logo on the front. They also have 18-inch black aluminum rims, leather seats in black with perforations for breathability, a memory setting for the driver power seat, black mirror facings and black roof rack. “Special Editions resonate with buyers, offering a unique package with unique looks,” according to Chevy SUV manager Betsy Flagg. “We’ve already seen a strong interest with the Trax Midnight Edition when we announced production last December. We anticipate customers will strongly like the looks of the new Equinox Midnight and Sport editions and Traverse Graphite Edition.”

Traverse Graphite Edition Comes on 2LT Model

If you want the special touches that come on the Traverse Graphite edition, you need to start with the 2LT trim package. The Graphite model comes with a choice of paint colors, including Mosaic Black Metallic, Siren Red Tintcoat, Iridescent Pearl Tricoat, and Tungsten Metallic. The mid-size SUV is also decked out with Dark Charcoal 20-inch wheels, the black Chevy bowtie, dual exhaust and an integrated step. “Special Editions give consumers an opportunity to buy something outside of the mainstream trim designation,” according to Karl Brauer, Kelley Blue Book’s director of auto industry insight. “This lets them spend a little more for a unique model, one that often provides a higher resale value when it’s time to sell or trade the vehicle for their next purchase.” The special editions are expected to sell quickly, so get your name in at Freeway Chevrolet so the sales staff can notify you when one is on the lot.

Small SUV Looking to Dominate Market

Motivated by selling more than 63,000 Trax last year, Chevy has upped the ante for 2017 with design improvements and a richer interior in the hopes the small SUV will go from second place to first in category sales. “In the fastest-growing segment, Chevrolet Trax’s momentum is sure to continue with great design enhancements, premium details and the latest technologies,” according to Chevy director of marketing Steve Majoros. “Features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and four new active safety features offer customers more than most competitors – and at an entry-level price.” The new Trax will have a starting price tag of $21,895 when it arrives in the Freeway Chevrolet showroom this fall.

Trax Drawing New Customers, Mostly Female

Of all the people who have bought a Chevy Trax since its inception in 2012, the majority have traded in something other than a Chevrolet. In addition, more than 60 percent of Trax buyers are female, creating a demographic double-dip that is pleasing to Chevy executives. “With the Colorado and Trax, Chevrolet and our dealers are able to offer brand-new entries in fast-growing segments, which helps bring new customers to Chevrolet,” Majoro said. “And with other new vehicles such as the Cruze Hatchback and Bolt EV, we will continue to attract new customers to the Chevrolet franchise and continue to grow market share, as we did in 2015.”

New Interior Design Provides Controls at a Touch

The new upscale interior design of the Chevy Trax features a more natural flow that starts with the dashboard and continues through the instrument panel and console. The 7-inch color touchscreen infotainment system is new, providing simple access to control your music and hands-free communication, along with turning your new Trax into a Wi-Fi hotspot. A new instrument display shows vital vehicle information in both analog and digital formats. New owners will appreciate the use of upscale materials and attention to detail. “Customers will really notice the elevation in the Trax’s interior design and attention to detail,” according to designer Steve Kim. “It’s an environment that transcends segment boundaries, offering rich, premium appointments and seamless integration of the technologies they rely on most.”

Popular Turbocharged Engine Returns

No improvement was needed for the popular Trax 1.4L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, which puts out a pretty healthy 138 horsepower for a small vehicle. It’s paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission to deliver an estimated 33 mpg on the highway. See how the new Trax is poised to takeover the small SUV market this fall when it comes to Freeway Chevrolet.
