mm_gal_item_c2_4.img_resize.img_stage._1

Top 5 Scenic Roads to Experience in Your Camaro

Classic_03

The Chevrolet Camaro has always been designed with the open road in mind. If you own a Camaro or are looking to buy, you owe it to yourself to head to these beautiful routes and experience the full joy of owning your Camaro.

In no specific order:

1. Pacific Coast Highway

The almost stereotypical drive for good reason. Hugging the coastline for 123 miles, the drive is a spectacular opportunity to see the dramatic coastline of Big Sur. Enjoy the view of the Pacific ocean from the tops of cliffs. Along the way, you can try the wineries, see the famous redwoods, and maybe eat some great seafood.

Be careful if you go in peak season (roughly late summer, like July and August) as the roads are crowded. Considering the at times narrow roadway and tight turns, make sure you watch your speed.

2. Skyline Drive

Skyline Drive is located in the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia, which are famous for their spectacular fall foliage displays. As such, the best time to go is when the leaves have turned, probably around early October, though spring can also be a great time to go due to the numerous wildflowers that bloom.

Skyline Drive winds its way along the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains for 105 miles and goes through Shenandoah National Park along its route.

3. Finger Lakes Region

Located in central New York State, the roads in the area pass around and over a number of lakes that are roughly shaped like fingers if you look at them on a map.

There are 11 lakes in all: Canadice, Honeoye, Skaneateles, Keuka, Seneca, Cayuga, Hemlock, Conesus, Otisco, Owasco, and Canandaigua. Ranging between Syracuse and Rochester, or about 80 miles, the lakes were formed by old glaciers from the last Ice Age.

The scenic parts of this drive come not only from the lakes, but the idyllic farms, towns, and numerous wineries sprinkled along the shores.

Once there, give yourself a few days to fully enjoy the area, since we’re assuming you won’t want to just plow through the area without stopping. It would be a shame to miss the food, wine tastings, and hiking opportunities endemic to the region. Plunging gorges and waterfalls cast the drive with natural beauty.

4. San Juan Skyway

The San Juan Skyway winds through 230 miles of some of Colorado’s best countryside. Though you can get through the route in less than a day, you really ought to set aside a few days to fully enjoy yourself.

The route will take you through Gunnison and Uncompahgre National Forests, Grand Mesa, and San Juan National Forest.

Enjoy viewing cliffs and ridges, alpine woods, small towns, and pueblo ruins.

The San Juan Skyway is always a great choice no matter the season. Each season brings its own special display, from the waterfalls of spring, the wildflowers of summer, the foliage of fall, and the serene white snow of winter.

5. Patchwork Parkway

Travel through the painted desert of Utah on the Patchwork Parkway, also known as Route 143. About 50 miles long, the route features lava fields, canyons, lakes, plateaus, and mountain peaks.

Enjoy the gorgeous red and orange landscape that makes this area of the United States famous.

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 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 spots have been making driving more difficult and dangerous since the first vehicles hit the market.

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.
