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.

With 17 percent off the list price of all 2017 Chevy Silverado LT pickups in stock, it’s never been a better time to buy one of America’s most sophisticated and powerful pickups. Head into Freeway Chevrolet today for savings of up to almost $8,200 off the sticker price on the new Silverado.

Most Dependable, Longest Lasting Truck

Based on registration information through 2016, the Chevy Silverado is the most dependable, longest-lasting truck on America’s roads. 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. Move on up the trim packages through the LT, LTZ, and LTZ Z71 until you get to the High Country model, the ultimate in sophistication and comfort. Move into the Special Edition packages for some truly beautiful designs, including the red and black accents on the Redline and the totally blacked out look of the Midnight Editions. Two different Rally packages provide a cool look with racing graphics, while the High Desert Package mixes sportiness with refinement, offering a lockable waterproof cargo storage area and magnetic ride control. 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.

Chevy Bolt Makes Electric Living a Snap

With 238 miles of all-electric range, a plentiful number of charging stations and the ability to get up to 90 miles of extended range in only 30 minutes, the reasons not to choose the Chevy Bolt as your next commuter vehicle are quickly falling by the wayside. The sporty Bolt is attractive, affordable and a great way to help lessen your carbon footprint on the planet. You’ll be able to test drive the new Bolt very soon at Freeway Chevrolet.

Awards Keep Piling Up for Bolt

It’s pretty keen to win one “Car of the Year” award, so imagine the thrill Chevy executives are feeling with the Bolt being the recipient of three such awards. What many considered the most coveted “Car of the Year” award comes from Motor Trend magazine. Bolt earned that honor for 2017. The attractive little Bolt was also named the 2017 “North American Car of the Year” and the 2017 “Green Car of the Year” for its zero emissions.

How Fast is a Bolt?

While the Bolt isn’t going to challenge a Corvette for the title of King of the Chevy muscle cars, it is surprisingly quick. This little powerhouse generates a noticeable 266 pound-feet of torque when you tromp on the accelerator, rocketing you from 0 to 60 mph in less than 6.5 seconds. With the average daily commute around 40 miles, what time you lose on the street to larger gas engines will be made up when you pass those cars at the fuel pumps.

Electronic Precision Shift Provides Smooth Response

Driving an electric vehicle is definitely a different, and much easier, experience than driving a gas car. One example is the Electronic Precision Shifter in the Chevy Bolt. Resembling a joy stick you might use on a video game, the shifter uses electronics to send a signal to the transmission to go forward, reverse, neutral or park. The lack of gears and connectors makes more room in the console for your electronics, a box of tissues and other items you need in your daily drive. Shift into low mode and you can experience the joy of one pedal driving. Just lift your foot off the accelerator and you can slow down dramatically, even coming to a complete stop in some cases.

Plenty of Accessories Available

When you go look at the Bolt during your visit to Freeway Chevrolet, don’t forget to visit the aftermarket department and check out all the cool accessories. Items such as an accessory hitch that works with many bike racks, portable Bluetooth speakers, decals and even a special Bolt sunshade can make your new EV stand out from the crowd.

Dedicated Spanish Language Team Available

OnStar has provided General Motors customers with a dedicated team of Spanish language operators for the past decade, but in no year have there been more requests for Spanish-speaking agents than in 2016. More than 1,0000 requests for the Spanish team came in every day, and Chevy has seen more than 100,000 requests for Spanish agents in the first three months of this year. “We understand that not all Chevrolet owners speak English fluently or at all, but we didn’t want that to be an obstacle in providing them with the same service we offer all OnStar customers,” said Terry Inch, GM’s director of Global Customer Connections. “As a result, OnStar has a dedicated team of advisors who can help Spanish-speaking customers keep safe, connected and ready for the road ahead.” Get a complete demonstration of all the ways OnStar can help you on the road when you visit Freeway Chevrolet.

Easy to Request Spanish Assistance

There are two ways you can be hooked up to a Spanish-speaking customer service representative when you push your blue OnStar button. One is to ask the folks at Freeway Chevrolet to enroll you in the Spanish option when you purchase your new Chevrolet. You can also ask to be directed to a Spanish language agent on a case-by-case basis, every time you make a call. “Across the board, our data tells us that Spanish-speaking customers are well-informed when it comes to in-vehicle technology,” according to Inch. “In addition to using OnStar core services, we’ve seen that Spanish-speaking customers are likely to use the myChevrolet mobile app to remote start their vehicles, lock their cars and even check their vehicle’s diagnostics.”

Unlimited 4G LTE Wi-Fi Available

For only $20 a month, Chevy owners in the U.S can now have an unlimited data plan through their OnStar system. The Internet doesn’t care what language you speak, it just provides a virtually unlimited source of music, information, video, podcasts and books on tape that drivers and passengers can use to make transportation more entertaining and productive. “We have contractors bidding jobs in their Silverados, families streaming movies in their Malibus and everyone tapping into the cloud for music,” GM North America president Alan Batey said. Customers used nearly 200 percent more data last year in their Chevy vehicles than in previous years. See how OnStar and 4G LTE Wi-Fi can make your travels more entertaining, safe and productive with a demonstration at Freeway Chevrolet.

Colorado ZR2 Ready for Desert Competition

If you were one of the lucky ones who ordered a new Chevy Colorado ZR2 from Chapman Chevrolet earlier this year, expect to receive your truck soon. The first deliveries of this versatile off-road truck are happening now, in plenty of time for summer off-roading and desert competitions. Chad Hall of Hall Racing will be running a Red Hot Crew Cab version of the ZR2 in the Best of the Desert racing series this August. “The Colorado ZR2 really caught our attention with its built-in versatility and the high-speed, off-road potential of the Multimatic DSSV dampers,” Hall said. “We love the ground clearance, ride stability, departure and breakover angles of the ZR2, and the inherent light weight and maneuverability of its midsize package. It should be a great platform for us to build an off-road desert racing truck.”

ZR2 Combines Agility of Midsize Truck With Tech

The new Chevy Colorado ZR2 is the best of both worlds for off-road drivers, mixing the nimbleness and maneuverability of a midsize pickup with the power, technology and off-road features that serious trail busters desire. The front and rear tracks of the ZR2 are 3.5 inches wider than a standard Colorado. The suspension gives two more inches of ground clearance, and functional rockers provide greater performance when climbing over rocks and other trail obstacles. Rear electronic locking differentials, an optional diesel engine and the technologically advanced damper technology all add to the desirability of Chevy’s latest model. If you didn’t order a ZR2, there’s still plenty of time to get one. Check in with the pros at Chapman Chevrolet to see when you can test drive this off-road beast.

Colorado Now Offers 8-Speed Automatic

For customers who don’t do a lot of off-roading but still need a pickup that combines top-notch hauling ability with the flexibility to maneuver through urban streets, the Chevy Colorado fits the bill. Now with an 8-speed automatic transmission and available diesel engine, the Colorado provides the ultimate in power and fuel efficiency. “The Colorado is currently the most fuel-efficient pickup truck in America, with an EPA estimated 31 mpg highway when equipped with the diesel engine,” said Stand Ludlow, Chevy’s chief Colorado engineer. “Drivers will immediately notice that it pulls harder when accelerating from a stop or passing on the highway; it is more confident pulling a trailer up a steep grade and it is more refined cruising at a constant highway speed.” The Colorado has been the most awarded midsize pickup recently, winning Motor Trend’s “Truck of the Year” two consecutive years.

Tahoe, Suburban Get New Street Credibility

SUV Special Editions Continue to Break New Ground

The leaders in the full-size SUV market, the Chevy Tahoe and Suburban, now have a new reason to attract performance-conscious consumers. With the Rally Sport Truck (RST) package, the Chevy Suburban and Tahoe are moving into a market where street performance is king. “Chevrolet has continually invested in Tahoe and Suburban, developing models with varying combinations of capability, technology and performance to meet the needs of different customers,” said Chevy truck marketing director Sandor Piszar. “The RST is designed for customers who want a street performance look without sacrificing capability or refinement, along with the option of increased performance as well.” Be the first in line for a test drive of the new RST package when the 2018 SUVs arrive at Freeway Chevrolet this fall.

Performance Package Provides Power

All Tahoes and Suburbans equipped with the RST trim level will also offer a performance package that brings the power to back up the street look. The performance package features a 6.2L V8 engine that delivers 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Continuously variable valve timing, direct injection and active fuel management are three state-of-the-art technologies that ensure you’ll get the maximum performance and efficiency. Chevy has integrated the 6.2L engine with a new 10-speed automatic transmission that gets the most out of each rev cycle as you accelerate. Preliminary figures indicate the Tahoe RST will tow up to 8,400 pounds and be able to go from 0 to 60 mph in less than 6 seconds.

Magnetic Ride Control Reads the Road

If you choose a Chevy Suburban or Tahoe RST with the performance package, you’ll also receive magnetic ride control. This active suspension system reads every nook, bump and cranny in the road constantly, adjusting your dampers to improve body control and deliver a more comfortable ride. “When you want to hustle, it is incredibly fast, with significantly higher levels of acceleration, braking and road-holding grip,” Chevy chief engineer Eric Stanczak said. “When you want to relax, it is very refined, with exceptional ride comfort and interior quietness.”

Tahoe, Suburban Tops in Sales

The Chevy Tahoe and Suburban far and away lead the full-size SUV market, accounting for nearly 50 percent of all sales. With plenty of interior room, loads of power and a truck toughness that doesn’t sacrifice when it comes to comfort, the Tahoe and Suburban are poised to be the market leaders for a long time to come. Almost 80 percent of Tahoe and Suburban owners buy the same model when its time to get a new vehicle. See why customers keep coming back for more when you inspect the Tahoe and Suburban inventory at Freeway Chevrolet.

Impala, Cruze Listed in CR Top 10 Picks

Consumer Reports, one of the most trusted advocates for retail buyers, has added both the Chevy Impala and Cruz to its list of 10 Top Picks for 2017. The full-size Impala sedan has “roomy, supportive seats” and handling that is “responsive and secure.” The compact Chevy Cruz offers a “hushed, smooth-riding sedan that’s roomy enough to be a budget-friendly alternative to a mid-size car.” See why Chevrolet is the most awarded car company in America when you take a trip to Freeway Chevrolet.

Impala Absorbs Road Imperfections

The editors at Consumer Reports are enamored with the full-size Chevy Impala, saying the suspension provides a cloud-like ride that is usually associated with a much more expensive car. “Road imperfections are effectively absorved, resulting in a ride reminiscent of a pricier luxury sedan,” they wrote. “Sedan shoppers browsing upmarket choices would be wise to give this smart, competitively priced alternative serious consideration.” The Impala has plenty of room for five adults to stretch out their legs, adding to the comfort factor. Available 4G LTE Unlimited Wi-Fi allows all those passengers to stream their favorite music, watch videos or just stay in touch with the outside world. You’ll have your choice of a super-efficient 4 cylinder engine that delivers 30 mpg on the highway, or a more powerful V6 that still earns 28 mpg on the open road.

Cruz Outscores Civic and Corolla

Although the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla have consistently been at the top of the pack in the compact car category, Consumer Reports puts the 2017 Chevy Cruze ahead of both those entries. Consumer Reports says the geniuses at Chevy somehow “put the Malibu and Impala in a shrink ray, reducing size but preserving the commendable driving manners and generous available features.” Although Chevy is coming out with a diesel option for the Cruze this year, Consumer Reports said their tests earned 47 mpg on the highway, adding, “it might not be worth waiting for the diesel engine.” Starting at just $16,975, the Cruze Sedan and Hatchback offer a unique combination of entertainment and technology. See why the Impala and Cruz are the top critics’ choices when you visit Freeway Chevrolet.

Cruze, Impala Offer Top Safety Features

Along with an ample supply of airbags and sturdy chassis construction, both the Chevy Cruze and Impala offer a number of driver assistance features to help avoid collisions. A rear view camera, forward collision alert, blind zone monitoring system and rear cross traffic alert are just a few of the sensor and camera-driven systems that will help you reach home safely.

When it comes to a full-size SUV that provides room for the whole family and a boatload of stuff, it’s hard to imagine anything better than the Chevrolet Tahoe. The Tahoe has been providing a confident, capable choice for more than 20 years, delivering the power and sophistication Americans need when seeking out their next adventure. Check out the entire Tahoe inventory and take a test drive when you visit Freeway Chevrolet.

Enjoy Quiet Time in Sophisticated Cabin

Chevrolet has pulled out all the stops to eliminate road noise in the 2017 Tahoe, utilizing an acoustic laminated windshield, triple seals on the doors and ample sound deadening material to provide a peaceful environment where you can enjoy all the supplied technology. The Chevrolet Tahoe offers up to seven USB connections, along with a 110-volt outlet and optional wireless charging station to make sure everyone’s electronic devices are always operating at full speed. Now you can also get OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi with an unlimited data plan to allow everyone to stream movies, music and the Internet, making those long road trips much more enjoyable.

Tow, Tow, Tow Your Boat

Choose the Max Trailering Package and your new Chevrolet Tahoe can pull up to 8,600 pounds, or the equivalent of a very large boat or recreational trailer. The Tahoe is equipped with a 5.3L V8 engine that not only delivers 355 horsepower and a powerful 383 pound-feet of torque, but also scores a best-in-class 23 miles per gallon on the highway.

Midnight Offers Black-out Style

Choose the new LT Midnight Edition of the Chevrolet Tahoe and you’ll get a stealthy design that features black on black, from the wheels to the iconic Chevy Bowtie logo in the front grille. The black is broken up by just enough chrome to add a splash of class, making the Tahoe the right choice whether you’re heading for a night on the town or into the mountains for a little rest and relaxation. The Tahoe also has an LT Signature Package available, which provides premium amenities such as chrome assist steps, chrome recovery hooks and 20-inch chrome wheels. Choose the all-season package and you’ll get extra capability with all-season tires, body color side moldings and black roof rack cross rails.

Driver Assistance Features Provide Additional Safety

The new Tahoe is not lacking when it comes to safety technology. Advanced safety features use a combination of sensors and cameras to detect possible hazards, issue a warning, then take action if the driver fails to respond. See why the Chevy Tahoe is America’s favorite large SUV when you take a test drive at Freeway Chevrolet.

Racing Suspension Teams with Aero Technology

By combining new aerodynamic technology with a finely-tuned racing suspension and adding Goodyear Supercar 3R tires, Chevrolet has created a monster Camaro with unprecedented track performance. The ZL1 1LE was a full-three seconds, or in racing parlance “an eternity”, faster than the ZL1 Coupe on GM’s Milford test track. A carbon fiber rear wing, air deflectors and a front fascia that features dive planes were all part of creating additional downforce to keep the Camaro ZL1 1LE stuck to the track like glue. “The track-focused 1LE package offers progressive levels of performance across the Camaro lineup, from the V6 1LE to the SS 1LE,” according to Camaro chief engineer Al Oppenheimer. “But with the new ZL1 1LE, the progression takes a quantum leap –this is the ultimate track-day Camaro.”

Supercharged Engine Provides Plenty of Power

When the new Chevy Camaro ZL1 1LE arrives at Freeway Chevrolet later this year, it will be powered by a monster supercharged LT4 motor that pumps out 650 horses. That motor is paired by a short throw six-speed manual transmission with Active Rev Match, a feature that helps you know when to shift for maximum performance. All that power and technology is aided by a 60-pound weight loss from the standard ZL1 coupe. Thinner rear glass, a lighter back seat and lighter dampers and wheels all contributed to lightening the scales. Advanced Brembo brakes that include the 1LE logo not only look sharp, but help you keep all that power under control.

Adjustable Suspension Lets You Choose the Ride

Whether you’re out tooling around and would like a little more comfort or challenging your friends on a closed course for the best elapsed time, the new Chevy Camaro ZL1 1LE has an adjustable suspension that lets you choose your driving experience. Multimatic Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve dampers are located in front and rear for maximum control. You can adjust the ride height with the front dampers, bringing it up for clearance and lowering it to hug the road and get the maximum fuel efficiency. The components are easy to adjust when you get to the track, then switch back to street settings for your every day driving needs. “The new Camaro ZL1 1LE offers the supreme track experience,” according to Chevy Performance Variants director Mark Dickens. “It’s the pinnacle of Camaro performance and advances the 1LE’s nearly 30-year legacy of uncompromising, track-tailored capability.” Be the first to take the newest Chevy Camaro for a test drive when it comes to Freeway Chevrolet this fall.
