GM Goes Commando

2017 Chevrolet Colorado

When we see a Chevy Colorado on the road, it is generally roaring by. At Pine Belt Chevrolet in Lakewood, a premier of car dealerships in NJ, we love to sell the Chevy Colorado just that way: strong, fast and loud. If you are in the Army on recon, however, the strong and fast would make you proud but the loud could find you held up by enemy fire instead.

 

TARDEC

The U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research Department Center (TARDEC) and General Motors have been collaborating for ten years on merging a hydrogen powered Colorado, the ZH2, with fuel cell technology to make vehicles for the front lines of war zones. It’s quite a lot to wrap your head around really.

A hydrogen tank hit by a bullet should blow sky high. But the fuel tank of a Colorado ZH2 can deflect .50-caliber rounds. It should also make a whole bunch of noise running on a combustion engine. But this new military concept vehicle runs on fuel-cells. It is powered by hydrogen gas mixed with oxygen that generates power for a silent electric motor. When in enemy territory, stealth and silence make a great working pair. That soldier on recon can sit in a running ZH2 and observe the enemy without sounding like a city in rush hour, thus, giving away his position. Not only is the ZH2 silent but it is built like an off-road roader on steroids. The drive system of the ZH2 produces incredibly high torque, so this bad boy can sloth through any environment just like it can stealth through them.

 

Results Not Just for the Military

One end result of the ZH2 technology for the civilian market is losing the combustion engine. An engine that generates its own power is critical to an economy that wishes to run without a dependence on so much fossil fuel. And, for autonomous vehicles, imagine not only not having to drive a vehicle but not having to get out in the slush and pump gas into it! Materials strong enough to withstand the power of a speeding bullet that doesn’t weigh two tons but can withstand the force of a ton is another boon to using less fossil fuels. It’s all a win!

We are proud of our multi-generational family roots in the business and our GM roots as well.

Not College Bound

Future Auto Mechanics

At Pine Belt in Lakewood, NJ, we are celebrating 80 years in the business of selling and servicing automobiles. One of the hardest parts of our business is finding enough service personnel. If you know a graduating senior, or someone looking to transition careers who loves cars, we encourage them to consider hands-on automotive service or collision-repair programs offered at many community and two-year college institutions. Bump that up a notch to specialized training in diesel or busses and you’ve increased your earning potential.

 

Not Just a Wrench Anymore

In current curriculums, automotive mechanics use a laptop just as often or more often than a wrench. Computers are used more often to diagnose and fix automotive problems. These days, mechanics in training have to learn about sensors, software and other electronic technology. These are the buzzwords that dealers love to see on an application or resume.

 

MIT Engineers

It’s no surprise that MIT and Silicon Valley alum are the engineers developing autonomous vehicles. Young men and women are going to have to understand a whole new level of technology to repair these vehicles. Now is the time to understand how to repair this technology so that you can be super-marketable when these vehicles hit the road. General Motors will actually be sending to market its first semi-autonomous vehicle in 2018!

 

Women Welcome

Don’t underestimate the talents of the women in your family looking for a career. The trade association, Women in Auto Care, award some pretty nice scholarships to women applying to auto repair programs. Auto repair combined with  business management training put women at the front of the line for higher positions within the industry where they are underrepresented.

 

Not Sure

Stop into any of our Pine Belt dealerships, Pine Belt Chevrolet, Pine Belt Subaru or Pine Belt Chrysler-Jeep, if you would like to talk to someone about a #careerinautomotiveservice or management. We’ve been doing this for 80 years through three generations of the same family now. With our reputation for being one of the premier car dealerships in NJ and used car dealerships in NJ, sought after, we can’t imagine being in any other business. We also encourage you to stop in and see us or visit any of our websites, www.pinebeltchevrolet.com, www.pinebeltsubaru.com and www.pinebeltchryslerjeep.com, when you are in the market for a new, used or certified pre-owned vehicle. You can even make a service appointment online with us. We are here for you and your vehicle.

Make Your Next Car a Subaru Legacy

Pine Belt Subaru is proud of its genesis that began 80 years ago with one car in a single garage and a commitment to excellence in all we do along with quality products. That is the legacy of all Pine Belt dealerships of Lakewood, NJ. A great example of our commitment to quality products is the 2017 Subaru Legacy sedan.

 

Just a Few of the Amazing Features

Standard on the Subaru Legacy is the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive which provides stability and quicker response time to road conditions. It delivers supreme efficiency by distributing power throughout the drivetrain for incredible traction. The Legacy sedan also sports Vehicle Dynamics Control with Active Torque Vectoring. This ensures a more sturdy handling of your #2017SubaruLegacy by automatically sensing the steering and braking efforts to keep the path of the driver straight and steady.

The engine on the Subaru Legacy is the exclusive to Subaru six cylinder Boxer Engine. Because the engine sits horizontally under the hood and makes the engine’s center of gravity lower, the boxer engine provides a smoother ride for the driver and passengers and delivers 28 miles per gallon.

 

A Legacy of Accolades

The EyeSight Driver Assist technology is available on the Subaru Legacy and made the Legacy a Top Safety Pick Plus from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety for the fifth year in a row. It monitors traffic around your Legacy and sends an alarm when you cross over your lane markers. Pre-Collision Braking is a feature that can implement full force braking in an emergency situation. This feature was just one that was responsible for the Subaru Legacy also receiving a Five Star Overall score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The ALG gave kudos to the 2017 Subaru Legacy for retaining its value better than any other sedan in its class. Kelley Blue Book gives the Subaru Legacy its ribbon for Best Resale Value in its class. KBB also liked the Legacy for one of the best sedans under $25,000. And, Autotrader says the Subaru Legacy is a Must Test-Drive vehicle.

 

Why Wait

Pine Belt Subaru is the premier Subaru dealership NJ and a top car dealership in NJ. Stop in and see our entire inventory of new, used and certified pre-owned Subaru vehicles, including the Subaru Legacy, at Pine Belt Subaru.

Perseverance

The keys to growing and maintaining a business for 80 years are simple. You have to serve your community, serve your customers and persevere no matter what life throws at you. #PineBelt started with a one-car showroom in a garage in 1937. We grew to a 28,000 square foot facility on Route 88, 30 years later in 1967. Two years before we turned 50 years strong, a fire destroyed our entire dealership. But our employees and their families came together and had the business back open by building a temporary service facility within two days following the fire.

 

Three Generations

The Sickel family has run the Pine Belt automotive enterprise for three generations. Our goal has always been to provide the BEST customer service and create an environment for the most outstanding customer satisfaction. We have families that have done business with us through their own multi-generations since we opened for business. We are proud to be their choices for new and used car dealerships in NJ.

 

Our Commitment to You

Pine Belt Chevrolet, Pine Belt Subaru and Pine Belt Chrysler-Jeep want to be your dealership of choice, as well as the generations that come after.
