Special Edition Chevy SUVs Announced

shutterstock_306947240

There are special edition comic books, special edition magazines—seems like a special edition serves as a consumer magnet.  Why?  “Special Editions give consumers an opportunity to buy something outside of  mainstream trim designation,” says Karl Brauer, senior director, automotive industry insights, Kelley Blue Book. “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.” So, it is exciting to hear that Chevrolet has just announced that the Equinox and Traverse SUVs are joining the ranks of Special Editions.

Special editions are popular with automobile purchasers. Chevy trucks that are Special Editions sell three times faster than other Chevy trucks on the market. The demographic that loves Special Editions the most are young and shop upscale.

Both Special Edition models are available for a test-drive at Pine Belt Chevrolet now. Come into Pine Belt Chevrolet today and see for yourself how intoxicating a Chevrolet Special Edition can be.

Top 10 Moments of Chevrolet – Part III

Pine Belt 2 Two Chevrolet B-Segment Cars Coming to Markets

This is the last part of this post that discusses the top defining moment of Chevrolet down the years.

#4: It was Corvette vs. the remaining world

In 2008, Corvette beat the famous monsters like Porsche, Ferrari and BMW to emerge as the winner for the 8th consecutive time at the Manufacturer’s Championship. It became a highly successful team in the history of American Le Mans Series.

#3 When Impala and Daytona created magic together

  The date was February 20 1959 when the Impala, now a legend in its own right clinched its first victory in its first race ever. Bob Welborn’s lead foot and steady hand guided it and a new trend of dominance of Daytona started for the Chevy and is continuing even during the present times.

#2: Mr. Corvette arrives at France

Factory racing was banned unofficially in 1960 and this prompted Briggs Cunningham, the legendary sportsman to introduce Corvette to the racing car enthusiasts in the Continent. Corvette, thus made an international debut and got the first-ever victory for Chevrolet at Le Mans. The winning tradition of Chevrolet continues even today. It won the winner’s  trophy at the GTE Pro class in 2011 in Le Mans endurance race

#1 The first race of its kind

As the story goes, the founder of GM, William “Billy” Durant, invited the famous racing driver Louis Chevrolet and his brother Arthur in 1907 to race as an honor for being his own chauffeur. Louis was already a racing sensation internationally easily surpassed Arthur. Billy was completely stunned when he saw how Louis did not even pay heed to his personal safety and gave the coveted job to Arthur right there. Yet, Louis came out victorious in the long run.  With continuous backing from Billy, just a few years later, world saw the birth of the first Chevy.

Top 10 Moments of Chevrolet – Part II

Pine Belt 2 Two Chevrolet B-Segment Cars Coming to Markets

#7 Cruze’s amazing victory in WTCC

It surprised many as Chevy decided to depart from its signature style big displacement V8s in 2010 when it participated at World Touring Car Championship. It was just a season before that the BMWs had been dominating all over the world. Chevrolet achieved two major milestones in the championship be winning the Manufacturer’s Championship, as well as, the Driver’s Championship that year. It proved that a replacement for large displacement does work.

#6 1998 Daytona 500 Is won By Dale Earnhardt

Dale Sr. had been chasing the checkered flag for 19 years before conquering the Daytona 500 finally.  This was his first and sole win at the “Great American Race”. What followed thereafter is regarded as one of the most emotional moments in the history of sports when both the competitors and crews shook his hand while he drove the car slow and enjoyed his long drive to Victory Lane.

#5: It was Corvette vs. the remaining world

In 2008, Corvette beat the famous monsters like Porsche, Ferrari and BMW to emerge as the winner for the 8th consecutive time at the Manufacturer’s Championship. It became a highly successful team in the history of American Le Mans Series.

#4 Jimmie Johnson did it for the 5th time

Jimmie Johnson proved in 2010 that winning has become a habit for him.  He had ridden of-road Silverados to stadium S-10s and tasted success in all. In 2010 he rode a V8 Chevrolet car and clinched the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Driver’s Championships for the fifth consecutive time. It was an unprecedented feat and he was the first driver to achieve such an accomplishment.

Some of its underbody parts are quite different and cannot be interchanged.

Why You Should Buy a Used Chevrolet Volt

mm_gal_item_c2_5.img_resize.img_stage._0

The range-extended car that operates on electricity from Chevrolet and is known as Chevrolet Volt has received the highest scores on owner satisfaction in comparison to all the other models sold by General Motors since the time it started to do customer surveys for its buyers. In fact, the features of Chevrolet Volt are so appealing that it has managed to draw new buyers who had not even thought of going for a Chevy earlier.

According to a report shared by GM, about 2/3rd of the Volt miles and eighty percent of Volt trips operate on chargeable batteries that can be charged by electricity though it has a relatively less range of about 35 to 38 miles. This indicates that here is a car that offers you all the benefits of electric running and there is no anxiety about its charge running out fast.

The reason for this feature is that Volt is powered by a 1.4 liter engine that is switched on if the battery charge is low and recharges it so that the car can move for over another 300 miles. Though the concept is great, it is quite complicated to market, advertise and market the same and General Motors have not had the success of doing any of that till date.

With the entry of Chevrolet Volt in the used-car segment, it seems to be a reliable and superior quality option for all such customers who prefer to drive an electric car for most of the times but also need an assurance that even when the battery is low, the car can move about another 250 miles continuously.

The Chevrolet SS Is Great Car, Often Gotten For Cheap, Used

mm_gal_item_c2_2.img_resize.img_stage._0

Whenever there will be a list made for all those good cars that people are not purchasing, the name of Chevrolet SS will definitely feature in it. The Chevy SS is equipped with superb features such as rear-wheel drive, mag-ride suspension and a 415 horsepower engine with LS3 V8. It can be easily considered as an E39 M5 of modern times. However, despite having all the qualities of a great car, its sale has not been impressive. The reason for such dismissal performance is not because people do not want to buy them but because they are not getting the one that they would want to.

When the production of Pontiac G8 was stopped, there were many who had requested GM for another rear-drive, V8 sports sedan. It was in the year 2013 when an announcement was made by Chevrolet that it is introducing the Chevrolet SS and the fans were absolutely thrilled. But soon it was disclosed that the model is not equipped with a manual transmission.

In 2015, one thing was very clear for the car experts. As far as performance was concerned, Chevrolet SS definitely had an edge. Perhaps that is why many people are baffled about its lack of sales. One of the reasons that have led to its poor sales performance may be inadequate marketing activities to promote the features of Chevrolet SS which is indeed a shame. Moreover, when you drive this car, you realize what a sublime experience it is that is quite rarely available in a big RWD sedan now-a-days. The car is tidy and taught though it is a large sedan.

Pine Belt 1 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Begins Reaching Showroom Floors

Chevrolet dealerships across the United States have a reason to cheer during this wonderful time of the year as the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is beginning to make its way to showroom floors. HP Motorsports has even gotten its hands on a 2016 Camaro SS. It was brought back to the shop and quickly put to the test to see what it is capable off. The company was excited to hear the roar of the 6.2-liter LT1 V-8 engine as it produces 420 horsepower that is sent to the rear wheels. It is highly likely for HP Motorsports to modify this already beast into a flat-out monster, but for now we can marvel at its standard features and power through a video titled, “6th Gen Camaro – Dyno.” Pine Belt Chevrolet in Lakewood is ready for the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro.
