The 2017 Chevy Bolt EV is the Next Big Thing

bolt

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 be 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.

What to Expect with the 2018 Tahoe

2017-tahoe-gal-ext-02

Pictured: 2017 Tahoe

The Chevy Tahoe was completely redesigned in 2015 and received technology tweaks in 2016 and 2017. As far as 2018 goes, there’s a chance that there will be further tech tweaks and trim changes, but overall the model is expected to stay the same.

The body, particularly, should remain the same, which is a good thing considering its modern and clear-cut looks. The seating will be the same, allowing up to nine people to ride along inside with comfort and space.

Standard features should include tri-zone auto climate control, a 10-way power driver’s seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a teen-driver monitoring system, Wi-Fi hotspot capability, built-in power outlet, and six-speaker audio system.

The powertrain is likely to remain completely unchanged, but it’s still relatively modern as Chevy debuted it just a few years ago. The current model uses a 5.3-liter V8 that cranks out 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. This engine pairs with a six-speed auto, though an upgrade to an eight- or 10-speed automatic could come in a few years. All this adds up to a hefty 8,600-pound towing capacity when properly equipped.

The IIHS has yet to rate the 2017 Tahoe, but in NHTSA testing, it received a four-star overall rating. The current Tahoe does offer the latest in vehicular safety, like forward collision warning, low-speed auto emergency braking, lane departure warning and intervention, rear cross-traffic alert, and blind-spot monitoring.

GM hasn’t announced a release date yet for the 2018 Chevy Tahoe. However, production is estimated to begin in August 2017, which would likely result in an on-sale date in September.

Stay tuned to Classic Chevrolet to learn more about the 2018 Tahoe as information becomes available, including release date, price, and features.

Chevy Colorado: Ready to Off-Road

 2017-colorado-zr2-06

Off-roaders rejoice: the new 2017 Chevy Colorado ZR2s have started rolling off the assembly line at Wentzville Assembly Center. While generally the same size as the standard midsize Colorado pickup, the ZR2 brings tuned-up performance to the table that allows it to tackle most any terrain.

To increase stability over rough terrain, Chevy has widened the Colorado’s stance by 3.5 inches. It also has a 2-inch lift to help it clear obstacles.The price is set to start at $40,995 when it hits dealerships.

Changes to the 2018 Chevy Volt

2017-volt-gal-ext-03

The Chevy Volt helped to solidify Chevy’s position in the extended-range electric vehicle segment and now it’s getting some updates, new features, and other changes for the 2018 model year in the U.S. market.

  • Pepperdust Metallic exterior color

The new colors include:

  • Green Mist Metallic exterior color
  • Satin Steel Metallic exterior color

This package also includes rear cross-traffic alert and side blind zone alert. This optional package will only be available on the LT trim level; the Premier trim gets automatic park assist as standard equipment.

In what may be a bid to save on cost, the leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob are now vinyl on the LT trim, though you can still get leather through the optional Comfort Package. Other new changes include an optional new heated steering wheel, which now automatically turns on when the heated seats are activated.
