Coming in 2014 is the Chevy Spark EV, which will take the name to new a level in several areas. Due to hit the market later this summer at Freeway Chevy, the Spark EV is likely to quickly find its place in the energy conscious market and become a forerunner of electric vehicles.
According to cars.com, the 2014 Chevy Spark EV offers a magnitude of punch right from the start and gets from 0 to 60 in less than 8 seconds. However, unlike some EVs, the Spark does not begin to back down once you’re up there and continues to pull smoothly. The cause is a 100-kilowatt motor that provides 134 horsepower and an impressive 400 lb-ft. of torque. The gasoline-powered Spark, in comparison, uses a 1.2-liter 4-cylinder engine at 84 hp and 83 lb-ft. of torque.
As for maintaining electricity, the Spark EV will be able to use Level III, or 480-volt DC, charging stations, which will let it get an 80 percent charge in about 20 minutes. Charging time for the 2014 Chevy Spark EV on a conventional 240-volt Level II charger is expected to be about 6 hours, and it will take the good portion of a day to charge the Spark on a 120-volt wall socket. GM says they are collaborating with the manufacturers of EV chargers as well as government agencies to encourage the development of more charging stations accessible to the public.
Performance aside, the differences between the gasoline version and the Spark EV are that the EV includes standard leather seats, a Volt-style power button on the console and a switch between the seats that engages an electric parking brake. Another switch, near the shift lever, engages the Sport mode on the Spark EV. The 2014 Chevy Spark EV also comes with electronic stability control, hill start assist and standard airbags. OnStar and its automated crash response system are standard for the first three years.
Keep an eye out for the Spark EV on sale this summer at a Phoenix Chevrolet dealer.
Joining the LTZ and Z71 models in the Silverado lineup this fall will be the premium 2014 Chevy Silverado High Country, which will feature exclusive interior and exterior features. According to Edmunds, the High Country will be the top model in the Silverado lineup, with a higher level of premium features and materials while still maintaining the integrity of a typical Chevy truck.
Exterior features will include a unique chrome grille with horizontal chrome bars; halogen projector headlamps; body-color front and rear bumper. 20-inch chrome wheels with all-season tires are also standard, as are chrome body side moldings, door handles and mirrors.
The inside of the High Country will acquire equally luxurious treatment with an exclusive saddle brown interior; heated and cooled perforated premium leather front bucket seats that include High Country logos on the headrests. As for technology, the High Country will include Chevrolet MyLink connectivity with an eight-inch touch screen; a feature that is growing in popularity in Chevy models at Phoenix Chevrolet. With MyLink, you have the ability to pair a smartphone to access your contact list, music playlists or certain mobile apps right on the touchscreen while the phone is safely stored away. Bose premium audio and park assist for the front and rear will also come standard.
The standard engine for the Silverado High Country will be the 5.3L EcoTec3 V-8, SAE-certified at 355 horsepower that has a system that saves gas by shutting off four-cylinders when they aren’t needed. The result will be fuel economy of up to 23 mpg highway. The all-new 6.2L EcoTec3 V-8 also will be available.
The Chevrolet Silverado High Country will arrive in showrooms in the fourth quarter of 2013 at a price to be announced. For more information, visit Freeway Chevrolet.
Summer is in the air, which means that it is time for road trips. There is nothing better than the wind in your hair, your favorite song on the stereo, heading toward adventure. Road trips can be a perfect getaway, but order to get to your destination safely; here are some tips to make your road trip as safe as it is fun.
Get any major repairs done. If your car needs major repair or maintenance, stop by at least one month before you go.
Check the coolant. If your destination is a lot warmer or cooler than home, check the coolant’s mixture of antifreeze and water to make sure the car is properly protected.
Check the tires. Make sure your tires are inflated to the proper pressure. Low pressure can cause extra heat buildup that can lead to a blowout at high speeds
Check the spare tire. Make sure the spare is fully inflated and that the jack, wrench, and other tire-changing bits are in the trunk.
Check the glove box. Check for the owner’s manual and registration. Check the registration to make sure it won’t expire during your trip. Consider carrying it in your wallet in case the car is stolen.
Get any scheduled maintenance done. If you think your car is going to come due for an oil change or other maintenance during your trip, stop by the service department at Freeway Chevy to get it done before you go.
Clean out your car. The more stuff you haul, the more fuel you burn.
Check the air filter. A clogged air filter reduces fuel economy. They’re inexpensive and easy to change.
Join AAA. If you don’t have some sort of roadside assistance program, consider joining AAA. They’ll tow your car if it breaks, change the tire if it goes flat, jump start the car if the battery dies, open the doors if you get locked out, and give you gas if you run out.
Fill the gas tank.
Look at what you’ve packed. Open your suitcases and take one last look — do you really need all that stuff? If there’s anything you can do without, then do without.
Load evenly and carefully. If you’re carrying lots of heavy objects, position them forward in the trunk and distribute the weight evenly side to side. Cars don’t have unlimited carrying capacity, so don’t overload.
Although unexpected things can happen if you’ve followed these guidelines or visit Phoenix Chevrolet before your trip, you have likely prevented a lot of potential problems. Relax and enjoy your trip!

Since the name was first used in earnest in 1999, the Chevrolet Silverado has proudly carried its badge to the top of the pickup truck market. With both light duty and heavy duty variants spanning more than 15 model years, the 2014 Chevy Silverado represents the first major redesign for GM’s workhorse.
Although details remain somewhat scarce, the Silverado’s December debut revealed a retooled exterior which evokes images of tank-like toughness. Although images of the pickup are simple enough to uncover, some of its best features may not become apparent until the Silverado arrives at Arizona Chevy dealers later this year.
Beneath its rugged visage, the new Silverado is equal parts beauty and brawn. Three engine options will be available at the outset, including a 5.3-liter EcoTec V-8 that couples 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque with eye-popping 23 miles per gallon (22 with 4WD) highway fuel efficiency. GM boasts 11,500 pounds of towing capacity for the 2WD double -cab version to accompany just over 2,000 pounds of payload capacity, as reported by Popular Mechanics.
The Silverado’s best-in-class towing package will include Trailer Sway Control and Chevrolet’s StabiliTrak systems which automatically reduce engine power and apply the brake when the sensors detect sway. Auto Grade Braking will monitor inclines and adjust the transmission to ensure control. Furthermore, an available rear-view camera will make lining up the trailer hitch simpler than ever and removing a common frustration for haulers.
The Silverado’s softer side includes a redesigned interior featuring Chevrolet’s MyLink touch-screen multimedia system, streaming stereo, Bluetooth capability, and support for iPods and iPhones. Even Pandora Radio is an option, showing just how far the pickup has come from its function-over-form approach in years past.
As more details surface, the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado is sure to continue to impress. If you would like to learn more about the new Silverado, want to try out the 2013 version, or have questions about any of Chevrolet’s other autos, contact Freeway Chevrolet.

Stop by an Arizona Chevy dealer to preview the new, rear-wheel-drive performance sedan that has finally been unveiled for 2014. As Chevrolet’s first V-8, rear-wheel-drive performance sedan in years, the new Chevrolet SS is designed to deliver performance on the street. According to Chevrolet, the comfort, convenience, spaciousness and V-8 power make the SS a total performance package unlike any other on the road today.
The Chevrolet SS includes the same rear-wheel drive architecture that is the foundation for the much of the brand. The Chevrolet SS is powered by the 6.2-liter LS3 Chevrolet V-8, expected to deliver 415 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque. To see it in action, visit Phoenix Chevrolet. The LS3 is partnered with a six-speed automatic transmission, which can be shifted manually using TAP shift paddles mounted on the steering wheel. With an aggressive 3.27 final-drive ratio, the Chevrolet SS is expected to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in about five seconds, making it one of the quickest sedans on the market.
To ensure that it turns and stops as well as it accelerates, the Chevrolet SS also features a sport-tuned chassis, which includes an electronic power steering system, standard Brembo brakes, and forged aluminum wheels within ultra-high-performance tires. Handling is also improved by a near 50/50 weight distribution, and a low center of gravity is made possible in part by the aluminum hood and rear deck lid that are 30 percent lighter than traditional steel panels.
Similarly, the design of the SS balances performance cues and premium details. Up front, the aluminum hood features a subtle “power bulge” previewing the power of the engine underneath. At the rear, the tapered, tear-drop shape contributes to improved aerodynamic performance. Premium cues include chrome accents, standard high-intensity discharge headlamps and light-emitting diode daytime running lights.
The spacious interior of the SS will comfortably accommodate five adults, with standard leather seating surfaces and eight-way power adjustable front bucket seats. At night, the interior is illuminated by ice blue ambient lighting. An integrated center stack includes infotainment, climate and other vehicle controls. As for technology, in-dashboard touch screen supports Chevrolet MyLink and the next-generation navigation system. Other standard features include Bose® Nine-speaker premium sound system, push-button start, Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning, Side Blind Zone Alert, and Rear-vision camera Rear Cross Traffic Alert. The SS is also the first Chevrolet to offer Automatic Parking Assist, which provides hands-free parking help.

The automotive experts at Consumer’s Digest have recognized the Chevrolet Sonic, Camaro and Equinox 2013 Automotive “Best Buys”. Consumers Digest chooses their “Best Buys” based on which cars in each category provide the most value for the price. Vehicles are tested based on the standards of an average car buyer under a variation of conditions. Their focus is based on significance in both design and performance.
Stop by Phoenix Chevrolet to check out the Sonic, Camaro, and Equinox which fall into three separate classes, and were each named best in their own class. The subcompact Chevy Sonic was awarded this title for the first time this year for a variety of reasons. The Sonic has the best safety rating in its class with 10 standard airbags and a 5-star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. According to Chevy, safety is not the only distinctive feature claimed by the Sonic. The Sonic is also the only car in its class that’s American built and offers a turbocharged engine with a conceivable 40 miles to the gallon on the highway.
The 2013 Chevy Camaro, to no surprise, won the “Best Buy” award in the Sporty Car category for the fourth year in a row. The Camaro offers great performance with muscular looks and an unforgettable ride. With engines that range from a 323-horsepower V6 to a 580-horsepower supercharged V8, reviewers note that the Camaro’s handling abilities are stellar; especially for a car of its size. The Camaro can get up to 30 miles to the gallon on the highway.
The Camaro is not the only “Best Buy” veteran in Chevy’s Army. In the Compact SUV category, the 2013 Chevy Equinox was also awarded its fourth consecutive “Best Buy” title. With its premium looks and spacious interior, the equinox offers a quiet, comfortable ride that resembles more like that of a full-size crossover rather than a compact. Along with a standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, there is also an optional 3.0-liter V6. The four cylinders can get up to 32 miles per gallon on the highway, while the V6 can get around 22.
