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.

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.
