The 2015 Chevy Silverado

aug-4-2014-silveradofeature

When the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado becomes available at Classic Chevrolet, you’ll find that it has been redesigned and features updated styling, a new double cab body style, an improved interior and new safety features. The 2500HD and 3500HD have been revamped with the same upgrades that the 1500 received.

Interior

The interior received better quality materials in the cabin, new safety features, bigger touch screens for hands-free phone operation and entertainment control, and a quieter cabin. The change in the double cab allows for more interior room – and it now has front-hinged doors for easier access.

Cargo Beds

The 2500HD and 3500HD give you a choice of bed sizes: 6.5 feet or 8 feet, though the regular cab doesn’t give you a choice – it comes with the long bed. The bumpers now have corner steps to make loading cargo easier. The truck also features a lower tailgate and some models have an EZ lift for easier access to the cargo bed.

Engine Choices

The engine choices are the same as last year’s, which means that you can get up to 397 horsepower and 765 pound-feet of torque in a diesel-powered truck. The 2500HD could haul up to 3,760 pounds and could tow up to 17,900 pounds if it is properly equipped with the right engine, suspension and towing equipment.

Options/Body Styles/Trims

Chevy is known for giving you many choices when it comes to trim levels. The 2015 Silverado 2500HD starts you off by letting you choose from a regular cab, double cab or a crew cab. Then choose whether you want four- or two-wheel drive. Choose the bed size; unless you chose the regular cab, in which case you get the long bed only.

Trim levels for the different body styles include the base Work Truck, the LT and the LTZ. The regular cab does not feature an LTZ trim level. The Work Truck features 17-inch steel wheels while the LT changes those out for alloy wheels. Additional features for the LT model include an upgraded tailgate, all power accessories, keyless entry, MyLink, voice controls, OnStar, Bluetooth and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Meet the All-New Impala

The new 2015 Chevrolet Impala models, which will be available at Classic Chevrolet sometime this summer, have many small changes to features. You can get the Impala with 18-inch or optional 19- or 20-inch tires. The change in tire size does change how the Impala rides, so pay attention to which tires and wheels are on the vehicle you test drive.

The base engine is Chevrolet’s 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, and models with this gain a stop-start feature that was standard on the 2014 model years. This features increases city fuel economy by 1 mpg*. With this technology, the base model with the 2.5-liter engine gets 22 mpg* in the city and 31 mpg* on the highway. The V-6 version uses a 3.6-liter engine.

The Impala also gets 4G LTE as standard equipment. Another change is the ability to fill up with compressed natural gas (CNG). You’ll have to buy the trim level that offers this or add it as an option, but if you live in an area where CNG is widely available, it is cheaper than gas in most cases.

http://www.chevrolet.com/content/dam/Chevrolet/northamerica/usa/nscwebsite/en/Home/Vehicles/Cars/2014%20Impala/Model%20Overview/01_images/2014-impala-model-overview-exterior-cnt-well-1-1280X637-05-1.jpg

While the mileage figures have not been released, Auto Trader quoted Chevrolet of saying that the Impala is expected to go about 150 miles on an 8-gallon tank of CNG. The tank is mounted in the trunk, so that does cut out about half of the cargo space.

The dual-fuel version also uses the 3.6-liter V-6 engine, which is backed by a six-speed automatic transmission. Pricing has not been announced as of yet for the dual-fuel version. According to Chevrolet, buyers who drive 24,000 miles per year will recoup the price difference in savings within a few years.

Additional features for the 2015 Impala my include – depending on the trim level and option packages – back up camera, a stereo system, LCD display, a variety of seating materials, panic and security alarms, remote keyless entry, variably intermittent wipers, disc brakes, ABS brakes, traction control, electronic stability control, plenty of air bags, turn signals in the mirrors, tilt and telescopic steering wheel with mounted audio and cruise controls and much more.

Stop by Classic Chevy or keep your eye on this space for more information about the 2015 Impala as it becomes available.

Camaro Z28 at Classic Chevy

http://www.chevrolet.com/content/dam/Chevrolet/northamerica/usa/nscwebsite/en/Home/Chevy%20Culture/News/Steve-MCE/01-images/2014-chevrolet-culture-news-z28reveal-mm-1-8-648x316.jpg

If you are considering the new Camaro Z28 but are just not sure if it’s going to stack up to its promises, stop by Classic Chevy for a test drive – you will find out as soon as you hit the gas just how crazy Chevy went with this one.

The heavier a vehicle, the more horsepower it takes to reach that top end. Chevrolet decided to leave some stuff out to decrease its weight so it could make the most of the 505 horses the power plant sends to the wheels. You’ll find that there’s no carpet or sound deadening in the trunk. There’s only one speaker unless you choose to upgrade – at no cost – to six speakers. The foam in the seats is lighter. Even the rear glass is thinner. By getting rid of some things here and there, Chevy managed to drop about 300 pounds from the Z28. In drag racing terms, that’s about 3/10 of a second.

The engine is a 7.0-liter V-8 that is put together by hand. In addition to the 505 horsepower, it puts out 481 pound-feet of torque. On the interior, you’ll be taken back in time with the Camaro’s retro deep-set gauges. Chevrolet used suede-like microfiber on the Recaro sport seats. The Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual transmission works on short throws and is precise, making quick work of changing gears.

The 19-inch wheels are an inch smaller than the typical wheels you find on Camaro models, but that gives the Z28 better handling since the center of gravity is about 3cm lower than other models. The Pirelli P-Zero Trofeo tires are “summer rated,” and really stick to the pavement. When all is said and done, the Z28 pulls 1.08 Gs in corners. Since you have to have a way to stop at that speed, Chevy gave the Z28 Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes. This gives the driver 1.5 Gs in deceleration.

The Performance Traction Management System allows you to pick from five different and adjustable driving modes: Mode 1 keeps the active handling on, but as you progress through to Mode 5, the electronic systems are shut off, giving the engine even more power. Mode 4 is Sport Active Handling Off; Mode 5 is Active Handling Off.

To learn more about the Z28 and to test drive it and see for yourself just how crazy Chevy got, stop by Classic Chevrolet today.
