The Chevy Colorado ZR2 Beats the Ford Raptor

When it comes to off-road specialty pickups, the Chevy Colorado ZR2 is arguably the better vehicle. Here’s why you should consider getting behind the wheel of the Colorado ZR2, driving it off the lot of Classic Chevrolet, and hitting up your favorite off road spots.

The ZR2 is Smaller

Bigger isn’t always better. When it comes to off-roading capabilities, this is doubly true. The Colorado ZR2 is a smaller, lighter, and more nimble truck compared to the Raptor, which means that you can go places in your Colorado ZR2 that wouldn’t be accessible if you were driving around a bulkier truck. Not to mention that the Colorado ZR2 is also nicer to drive in an urban setting when you’re not out on the trails, being easier to park and maneuver.

The ZR2 is More Flexible

Not only does the ZR2 have a diesel option that the Raptor lacks, but it’s more fuel efficient than the Raptor regardless of engine type. Additionally, you can put whatever you wish into your Colorado ZR2 whereas the Raptor requires pricey premium gasoline. So not only can you fill your Colorado ZR2 up for cheaper, but that tank of gas will last you longer.

The diesel option really takes the Colorado ZR2 to another level, however. It’s cheap compared to gas, gets better fuel efficiency, and makes your Colorado ZR2 climb and scramble in off-road settings like nothing else.

The ZR2 is Less Expensive

Chevy offers the ZR2 in two configurations: Extended Cab with a 6-foot bed; and the Crew Cab with four full-size doors and a 5-foot bed. For the Extended Cab, prices start at $40,995, including $995 for destination. The Crew Cab starts at $42,620.

Compare that to the Raptor, which starts out, base, at $52,375 plus an additional $1,295 for destination. That’s more than $11,000 than the base ZR2. Full load the Raptor and you’re looking at a truck that’s going to run you over 70 grand.

Why You Should Own a Camaro

Not that you need much reason to own one of the strongest, fastest, and funnest cars on the road, but there are certainly some good reasons to own one. The 2017 Camaro is better than ever and it’s available right now at Classic Chevrolet. Come in and test drive it today and we’re sure you’ll agree that the Camaro is the car for you.

It’s Affordable

The 2017 Camaro won’t set your bank account back as much as other cars in its class. Starting out under $26,000, a 2017 Camaro might be more in your reach than you think. Not to mention that the base model comes with plenty of standard entertainment, performance, and safety features.

It’s Head Turning

There’s no denying that the Camaro is a great looking car. If you want to turn heads wherever you go, you need to get behind the wheel of a Camaro. With its retro-futuristic good looks, distinctive headlights, and muscular bearing, it commands respect on the road.

It’s Powerful

With a couple of powerful engine options, including the available V-8, and either an automatic gearbox or six-speed manual transmission, the 2017 Camaro is one fast car. If you want to cruise the highway in a sleek and powerful ride, leave it to the Camaro to provide.

It’s Just Plain Fun to Drive

It’s a bit subjective, but it’ll feel objective when you’re behind the wheel giving the Camaro a test drive. The Camaro handles beautifully thanks, in part, to the fact that it’s heavier than a traditional sports car. This means that you hug the road like you’ve never experienced. Even at higher speeds it can handle curves in the road like they’re nothing.

Did We Mention There’s a Convertible Option?

Well there is. If you love that classic wind in your hair driving experience, don’t forget to ask for a convertible 2017 Camaro.

Take a Closer Look at the 2017 Chevy Bolt

The Chevy Bolt is kind of a big deal. After all, it’s the first affordable all-electric vehicle on the market that has enough range to actually get you places. It’s got plenty of cool features, but one stands out from the rest as far as we’re concerned.

It’s got some pretty cool systems in place to charge your batteries on the go. For example, it possesses a “regen on demand” paddle, which allows you to slow the car by pulling a small paddle tucked behind the steering wheel. “Regen” is just shorthand for “regenerative braking,” a system that can translate the kinetic energy it absorbs (from braking, for example) into electric energy it can feed into your systems. It takes some getting used to, not having a braking pedal, but it’s a smart feature that reinforces what the Chevy Bolt is all about. After a few days, you’ll find it’s the most natural thing in the world to brake with a paddle on the wheel.

Also, the Bolt comes with two driving modes, “drive” and “low.” The “low” mode is the car’s regenerative braking mode. Low mode makes the car use its own momentum and the motor’s resistance to regenerate power for the batteries. The car will also automatically slow down the second you pull off the accelerator, which allows you to easily coast to a complete stop, no brakes required. Every time you decelerate, you feed more power back into the batteries and increase how far you can go.

Why You Should Buy a Chevy Truck

If you’ve been considering a truck, don’t consider any longer: just go out to your local Chevy dealership and get one! Trucks offer so many advantages to owners that you’ll never regret the decision to buy one, especially if it’s a Chevy. Here’s why a Chevy truck may be perfect for you.

More Power

Chevy trucks offer you way more power than a standard car or SUV. How you leverage that power is up to you, but it will certainly come in handy. Trucks generally have upwards of 350-horsepower and they use it to get going since they’re larger vehicles. The thing is, once they get going, they tend to stay on the move. All that momentum, backed by that beastly engine, means that you can go faster than you might expect.

Tow and Haul More

That power means that you can tow and haul more with a truck than with any other type of vehicle. From hauling building supplies, furniture, or even a motorbike or two to towing a boat, travel trailer, or livestock trailer, a truck allows you to do more and go further.

More Space for People, Too

Just because you have a big truck bed doesn’t mean that your passengers have nowhere to sit. Truck cabins can be among the roomiest and most luxurious of vehicle interiors and Chevrolets are no exception. With plenty of seats and a slew of comfort and convenience features, a 2018 Silverado might be the perfect vehicle for you.

Better Visibility and Safety

Trucks allow you to ride high off the ground, which affords you better visibility in all conditions. If you can see further away, you can prepare for what’s coming better. Add to that a truck’s natural off roading abilities and its capabilities of fording deep water, and you’ve got a vehicle that can see you through many a situation.
