5 Reasons to be Excited for the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV

Classic_04

Chevy is shaking things up for 2017, and the introduction of the all-electric 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV is guaranteed to change the auto industry forever. The following are five reasons why you should start getting excited about the release of this groundbreaking vehicle.

1. It’s All Electric

Chevrolet obsessed over creating the 2017 Bolt EV, and it shows. This all-electric vehicle can travel an estimated 200 miles per charge, so you don’t have to worry about recharging while you’re at work or out running errands.

2. You Can Charge At Home

Skeptics have been steering clear of electric vehicles for years, but that’s because charging hasn’t been made as simple as it is with the 2017 Chevy Bolt EV. A 240-volt charging unit can be purchased and professionally installed at your home, so charging your vehicle is as simple as charging your smartphone. The available unit will charge your Bolt EV faster than the competition and makes customizing your charge settings easy. Best of all, you can still use public charging stations while you’re away.

A full charge on the available 240-volt unit requires just 9 hours, and you can reach up to 25 miles of range per hour of charge.

3. You Can Stay Connected Everywhere You Go

The 2017 Chevy Bolt EV offers technology in every nook and cranny. The standard 10.2-inch center display screen provides important information, including your battery levels, estimated range, climate controls, charge settings, music, calls and text messages. The interactive screen looks and operates like a tablet, so you can easily access all of your phone and battery’s information.

4. Safety Comes First

Technology isn’t worth anything if you and your fellow travelers aren’t safe inside your vehicle. The 2017 Chevy Bolt EV provides peace of mind with 10 air bags, a high-strength steel frame, available forward, side and rear alerts, OnStar advisors and automatic crash response. Chevy’s available Surround Vision camera system utilize four optimally-placed cameras to help you see what’s happening on all sides of your vehicle at all times. Whether you’re taking the kids to school, dropping your pet at the groomer or driving solo to work, you can rest assured that your Chevy is constantly working to keep you and your cargo safe.

5. Your Vehicle Will Turn Heads

Unlike other electric vehicles, the Chevy Bolt EV doesn’t turn heads because it looks funny. This all-electric hatch back vehicle features expressive proportions, stylish curves and an enclosed, flat underbelly  that will turn heads — in a good way.

The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV will hit the streets in late 2016, and it will pay to be ahead of the curve. Reach out to our Classic Chevrolet sales team to find out how you can be one of the first to own it.

Get Your Data For Less with Chevy!

Classic_02

When you test drive a Chevy with OnStar 4G LTE at Classic Chevrolet, you’ll find that you get data for less with Chevy. The auto maker is reducing its plan pricing by up to 50 percent. Chevrolet is the first auto manufacturer to offer 4G LTE in all of its cars; and it sold 2.1 million cars with the technology since July 2014.

In just two years, customers have used over 3 million gigabytes of data through the 4G LTE system in Chevrolet models – that’s about the same as over 100 million hours of music. And, data continues to be used. In the third quarter of 2014, consumers used less than 100,000 gigabytes of data and usage has continuously increased. The second quarter of 2016 say over 700,00 gigabytes of data.

Whether you use your Silverado or other Chevy for an office, commute or take long business trips – or even just fun road trips, wireless connectivity can be beneficial. And, as more people use the in-car connectivity, the cheaper Chevrolet can make it to access.

According to Chevrolet, over 60 percent of those who own Suburban models use OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot; and those who drive Traverse and Tahoe models are not far behind. Consumers can connect up to seven devices to the hotspot. Since the Silverado is a family vehicle, that model has the highest amount of data usage: over 1 million gigabytes of data to date.

If your Chevy vehicle has OnStar Basic, 4G LTE comes standard with it. The new data plan prices are $10 for 1 gigabyte per month instead of $20; $20 for 4 gigabytes per month, $40 for 10 gigabytes per month and $150 10 gigabytes per month if you pay for all 12 months at the same time.

Chevy Gives the Gift of WiFi!

Road trippers and everyday drivers have been eating up their smartphone data packages in their vehicles for years. Simply loading a map, checking your email, or sending a few hands-free text messages can come back to haunt you on your cell phone bill.  Fortunately, Chevy is solving that problem this holiday season as the first and only car company to bring built in 4G LTE WiFi access to their cars, trucks and crossovers.

If you’re skeptical about the need for WiFi in your vehicle, these 10 reasons to choose a Chevy with WiFi will probably make you want to come see us at Classic Chevrolet today.

1. Wherever you park your vehicle, OnStar’s 4G LTE WiFi will provide a quality signal for up to seven devices.

Chevy Safety Features We Are Thankful For

11-20-2015-SafetyFeatures

The holiday season means it’s time to give thanks for everything we have, whether it’s family, friends, a comfortable home or even a safe vehicle. Chevrolet makes some of the safest vehicles in the auto industry, so it’s no wonder that Chevrolet owners are thankful for the time and effort that goes into making each vehicle a safe way to get from Point A to Point B this time of year.

The following Chevy features are just a few of the many that make this legendary company safer than the rest.

Adaptive Cruise Control

The holiday season means more time spent on the roads for many Americans. Chevy’s adaptive cruise control feature makes getting to grandma’s house easier and safer by adapting your speed to changing traffic conditions. Adaptive cruise control automatically decreases or increases your speed based on what the car in front of you is doing. This unique feature has the ability to reduce the number of highway collisions that happen each year.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert

Driving in reverse can be difficult, but Chevy’s rear cross traffic alerts make it easier. Stay safe whether you’re pulling out of the garage or out of a parking space at the grocery store by allowing your Chevy to alert you when something’s in the way. This feature is now available in more Chevrolet models than ever, making it easier for you to keep yourself and others safe.

More Air Bags

Many of Chevy’s vehicle models come equipped with more air bags than their competitors, so you know you can trust your vehicle if an emergency strikes. For example, the 2015 Chevy Cruze comes standard with 10 airbags and received a 5-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Chevy’s 10 standard airbags, roof-crush resistance and high-strength steel safety cage are designed to keep you safe when you feel the most vulnerable.

Blind Spot Monitor

Blind spots have been making driving more difficult and dangerous since the first vehicles hit the market. Chevy’s blind spot monitors eliminate the worry associated with changing lanes by warning you if another vehicle is in your blind spot. Many of Chevy’s blind spot monitor systems will sound an alert or flash a light as you near a vehicle that is in the way.

Drive Safely This Holiday Season

The increased number of vehicles on the road during the holiday season means higher levels of danger. Stop in and see us at Classic Chevrolet in Grapevine, Texas, to view our huge selection of new Chevrolets to get you and to and from your destinations safer and with peace-of-mind this holiday season.
