The 2014 Chevrolet Impala is here and it is certainly a head turner! Never in the past 5 generations of Impalas has it been so visually interesting. The Chevrolet Impala has moved into the 21st century. The new model has improved in a few ways. The latest Impala is a front wheel drive, full-sized four door sedan and powered by three different engine choices coupled with an automatic transmission. The V6 engine gets 22 MPG combined. Though this car has not been on the market long, company reviews have been favorable so far of the pickup the Impala has even without the SS attached to it. In a review written by Marty Padgett of TheCarConnection, he mentions the fuel economy of the new Impala is “off the pace” and a few digits lower than the Azera and Avalon.
When you first step inside the 2014 Impala, you will notice a spacious and luxurious feel. Some customers say parts of the interior have a “flimsy, plasticy feel”. While others feel the interior now has “too much drama”. The center dash has a motorized, eight-inch, touch screen that raises out of the panel revealing a storage area with USB port for charging or tethering your phone or music player. Easy to customize and use, you will soon be listening to your favorite music with the MyLink system. There are 4 themes to choose from to display a look you like that also changes the look of the driver information system. The navigation system in the new Impala uses a 3D map and also has a valet mode to keep wandering hands out of your valuables.
The seats in the new Impala have an option for heating and cooling. You also have more leg room in both the front and rear seats. Every detail of the Impalas interior was selected and crafted to be an exceptional driving environment tailored to its driver. Here at Classic Chevrolet, we strive to deliver the most exceptional cars on the market. This is a classic car which has been redefined and brought back from almost certain death of the model.

Chevy has kept a lot of us in the dark waiting for this truck. Your Grapevine Chevy Dealer unveils the 2014 Silverado truck this weekend at the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo. So what is all the hype about this Silverado? Well, this is the beginning of the next generation of trucks from Chevy. That in and of itself is exciting, but this truck is a blend of all that is good in Chevy cars and trucks. Here’s a little of what you can expect.
The grill is huge, it is almost transformer huge, and frankly that rocks! It is an imposing truck that is easy to drive, comfortable to ride in and built Chevy tough. A key feature for the extended cab is an extended bed that stretch out to 6.5 feet. What you have here is a truck that blends past Silverado’s styling into a modern approach to aerodynamics and function. It is a bold approach to a practical idea that works as hard as you do. What’s all this mean? It means that, before 2014, the Silverado used raw engine power to push its way down the highway, but after 2014, the Silverado uses technology to part the air and glide through the elements. It means a quieter ride, better fuel efficiency, and a tough looking truck that wont bite the kids.
What’s Under the Hood:
The 2014 Silvarado sports the new family of EcoTec2 Engines, which offer customers a choice between the standard V6 and two V8′s. They feature Corvette Technology that includes full size truck engineering, direct fuel injection, continuously variable valve timing, along with other technically advanced performance that you wont find under the hoods of competitors.
Inside The Truck:
Expect comfort and practicality from this truck. It is designed to be safer and stronger, than past models. This truck brings back the idea of high grade steel to boost passenger safety. The cab sits atop Hydraulic body mounts which help to eliminate cab movement to bring a quiet and steady as you go feeling to riders.
Work hard, play harder, be safer! Expect top of the line safety features that are built into this truck. Features include Forward Collision Alert, Land departure warnings, and front and rear parking assistance. The truck also features improved StabiliTrak with Trailer Sway Control. Hill Start Assist is also a standard feature for 2014.
Overall, this is a truck. It uses technology to improve safety, ride, and performance without subtracting out all the cool truck features. The imposing design is a plus. It looks tough, plays rough, and still makes a decent impression wherever you go.
Yeah, yeah, how could a DFW Chevy dealer possibly be talking about 2014 cars when we just entered 2013? Well, some cars get us so excited that we have to take a look at them even though they haven’t rolled off the production line yet. This car was also featured at the SEMA show in 2012 as it left everyone giddy in their seats.
So we’re taking a look at the 2014 Chevrolet Sonic. Taking the place of the Chevy Aveo, the 2014 Sonic combines great performance into a small vehicle that fits into the subcompact sedan and hatchback categories. Named the Sonic Dusk due to its ashen grey paint color (not bright blue after the video game hedgehog), car buyers will have the choice between getting the five-door hatchback or the four-door sedan versions.
Power can be found in the smallest forms, and the Sonic has such power with a 138-horsepower turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that comes in both six-speed manual and six-speed automatic transmissions. Gas mileage is also ideal for this vehicle as you will get 40 mph on the highway when you drive it off the lot next year.
There’s no shirking on other features as you’ll have keyless entry, 18-inch aluminum wheels, 19-cubic foot trunk, black leather trimmed seats with suede accents, Mojave brown stitching, air conditioning, instrument panel accents and Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system. If planning on upgrading from the base model to the Sonic LT or LTZ, you’ll get power heated mirrors, power windows, six-speaker sound system, Bluetooth, USB connection and satellite radio.
What has taken the world by storm is the safety rating that the 2014 Sonic was given by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA) and the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS). Given five-star ratings from both organizations, the 2014 Sonic is one the the safest small cars for its size and price.
When it comes to the Sonic, car buyers will have sophistication and style in a compact vehicle. This appeals to many people who want to move away from the sporty appearance that many car makers have adopted when it comes to smaller vehicles. Sometimes, style and luxury fits a car buyer’s personality better, and that is what the Sonic will offer when sitting in the driveway.
So for people who are looking for safety, performance and luxury in a small size, the 2014 Sonic will certainly step up to the task. With all the positive reactions that Chevrolet received at the Sonic showing at SEMA, the car manufacturer is pushing to get this vehicle out as soon as possible to every Chevy dealer. So get your value in a small car as the Sonic will try to outshine other subcompacts.
If only 2014 would get here sooner so that we can see it for a little while on our Chevy showroom floor before buyers scoop up every single one.
It’s the beginning of the year and, as always, a good time to stop by your Grapevine Chevy Dealer.

Come check out our lot, where you will find more than 2,000 brand new beautiful cars with prices that can’t be beat anywhere. There are three deals that stand out, and people are clamoring to get behind the wheel of these cars.

This hybrid electric vehicle is one of the most affordable sustainable driving options available, and the price on this car has never been better.

If ownership isn’t your thing, consider taking out a lease on this car. Currently you can lease the Volt for $299 per month for a 36 month lease.
Some people are looking for a sleek car with the reputable Chevy name on it, but aren’t looking to spend a fortune. The best moderate sedan option right now is the Cruze, which is on sale for $16,900. Interested buyers have the opportunity to grab this car for 0 percent interest for the next 60 months, allowing people who might not think they can afford a brand new car to take advantage of this opportunity. There’s no better way to kick off the new year than with a beautiful new Cruze that you secured for the best pricing available across the country.
For those growing families in the area, there is no better time to upgrade to that family vehicle. The Chevy Traverse has never been a better option for families with children who will be heading out to the soccer fields. Customers have the opportunity to secure this crossover vehicle for 0 percent interest for 72 months, and the final price is $25,462. This vehicle comes with everything you need to actually enjoy your time with your family on the road, including plenty of storage space and entertainment upgrade options such as DVD players.

If you are visiting your favorite Dallas Chevy dealer
sometime soon, keep in mind that this innovative company has done it again. Chevy has continued research toward technological advances that make it possible to have the best on a more affordable budget with better technology.
Take, for instance, the flexible venting driver side airbag co-developed by General Motors and safety restraint distributor Takata. The new airbag costs less than traditional airbags yet has the same protection power as a traditional airbag. It works with a special venting technology, which allows the airbag to deploy in a more efficient manner.
Receiving positive reviews and a 5 star overall rating, this new airbag technology was recently tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in Chevy’s 2013 Cruze
. It is easy to see how the car would receive this review, considering the new airbags are included with the same safety equipment as past models. So far, it seems to work well and work safely.
Though the venting airbags work similarly to the traditional ones and provide just as much protection, they may be safer than the traditional ones. They are lighter, more compact, and flexible. Therefore, the risk of injury upon deployment is lesser.
Other airbags rely upon one inflator that deploys if there is a low speed crash, then there is another used in the event of a high speed crash. However, the venting airbag uses only one inflator that can provide the right amount of protection in either case. In addition, the force of the driver’s impact with the airbag is deflected as the air in the bag is able to be moved out and away from the driver.
The Chevy Cruze
received the same 5 star overall rating the previous two years with the old two stage airbags as it has for the 2013 model. It is continuing that same standard of safety even as Chevy continues to innovate.
According to the GM general director of vehicle safety and crashworthiness, Gay Kent, the new technology has become an important part of Cruze’s consistent success in the safety testing. This particular airbag technology is an excellent way to manage the forces applied by a crash incident. And the safety ratings only mirror the confidence of the new safety technology being implemented as well as the old technology still in use.
Chevy recently unveiled their new 2014 Silverado. The truck will be available at your local Texas Chevy Dealer sometime during the summer of 2013. The truck features both interior and exterior redesigns for an updated look and higher efficiency. The Silverado is Chevy’s longest-running vehicle line, having entered production in 1975 with many tweaks and redesigns over the last 39 model years. The 2014 Chevy Silverado and its counterpart, the GMC Sierra, are being touted as the most important truck released by GM since its bail-out four years ago. GM calls it the “Stronger, Smarter and More Capable” Silverado. The new styling and long list of options will have these pickups in high demand at your Dallas Chevy Dealer.
Interior: The interior features additional comfort and entertainment options. The front seats have been restyled, making them more comfortable for both driver and passenger. The Crew Cab has also been slightly tweaked to allow for greater leg room for both front and rear passengers. The center console features storage space for all of your electronics, from laptops, netbooks, smart phones and digital music devices. There are also multiple USB ports for charging purposes. The Silverado also features the Chevy MyLink radio, which can be operated by controls on the steering wheel, and is compatible with your iPhone, iPod or other device. MyLink can handle up to ten wireless devices at one time. A large touch-screen on the dash also allows for improved access to features of the navigation and entertainment systems while helping the driver concentrate on the road.
Exterior: The exterior features an all-new box design for a cleaner, more streamlined look. Silverado fans can choose from a 5’8, 6’6 or 8′ box, depending on the cab. In addition, the Silverado comes with redesigned wheels. Buyers have their choice of 17″, 18″, and 20″ wheels that are 1/2-inch wider to provide greater handling and better control of the vehicle in turns. Redesigned hood, bumpers, headlights, front grill and fender flares add a tougher look to this truck, for added visual appeal.
Drive-Train: The 2014 Silverado features three powerful new EcoTec3 engine options. Silverado buyers can choose from a 4.3L V-6, a 5.3L V-8 or a 6.2L V-8 engine Final EPA fuel economy ratings are not yet available on these engines, but they promise to be the most efficient yet. The EcoTec3 engine family adapts to your driving habits to maximize fuel economy. These engines feature Active Fuel Management, Variable Valve Timing and Direct Injection for added mileage in town or on the highway.
For more information on the 2014 Silverado, see a member of the professional sales staff at your Dallas Chevy Dealer. They can provide you with information on pricing and options, and schedule you for an in-person showing at your Chevy Dealer when the new models become available. You can also sign up for news updates and information on all things Silverado at Chevy’s website.
A lot of great things happen at the end of the every year. You get time off from work, you get gifts for the holidays, and perhaps most importantly, incredible car deals are offered by your local Grapevine Chevy dealer so that you can lock yourself into low payments on a brand new Chevy for the new year. Below are some of the best December deals to look forward to before the end of the year.
2012 CHEVY VOLT - One of the most talked about new cars on the market, the Chevy Volt is being offered at 0 percent APR for 72 months at $35,997, which is an incredible deal considering it’s MSRP is over $41,000. While there are currently seven models available, there is only one at the Grapevine Chevy dealer at this price, so you’d better hurry if you have been looking to buy one of the best electric hybrids on the road today.
2012 CHEVY MALIBU - Awarded one of the best cars of the year by Consumer Reports in 2012, Grapevine Chevy is offering $5,000 off the MSRP on all remaining 2012 Chevy Malibus. You will also have zero percent APR for the first 60 months. As there are 38 models available at this price, you should be able to snag one, though you probably shouldn’t wait too long.
2012 CHEVY ½ TON CREW LS - This reliable and sturdy Chevy truck is being sold for $25,930, which is well below it’s MSRP of $32,930. There will be zero percent APR for the first 60 months and an added bonus of $1,000 off if you trade in a ’99 or newer vehicle as part of your down payment. Out of the 307 available, there are only 5 at this price, so you probably want to act immediately if you want this deal.
2012 CHEVY EQUINOX - Another one of the best automobiles in the Chevy lineup this year is the Chevy Equinox. For all remaining V6 2012 models, $3,000 will be knocked off the MSRP and zero percent APR will be granted for the next 5 years, or 60 months. There are 5 of these vehicles at this incredible price out of 73 that are available, so you will also have to act quickly for this deal.
2011 Closeouts - There are also a number of 2011 vehicles Classic Chevrolet is trying to move for incredibly low prices. A 2011 1-Ton extended cab Knapheide Service Body is going for $32,956, which is nearly 25 percent off it’s MSRP of $42,375. A 2011 Chevy Silverado 2500 4×4 is going for $34,997, shocking because it’s MSRP is $43,480. Both are unbelievable deals, if you are in the market for these types of trucks.
There is so much that can be said about the Chevy Corvette and its reincarnation the last few years. It’s finally time for the 2013 Chevrolet Corvette 427 to be released and oh, is it sweet.
Before the all-new model of the Corvette is released in 2014, every Dallas Chevy dealer is going to be stocking the 6th generation’s last iteration of the 427. The legendary sports car is celebrating its 60th anniversary with what will be deemed the best of this class.
Any Chevy dealer will tell you that this Corvette convertible is the fastest and most powerful ever constructed. The 427 comes with a soft top overhead and under the hood is a 505 hp V8 engine. Probably the greatest attribute of the 427 is that the drop-top body style will finally give Corvette fans what they wanted for a long time: the largest of the small blocks. That’s because the same Z06 7.0-liter engine is now powering the 2012 427.
Every Dallas Chevy dealer will stand by the fact that in order to keep the price down, the 427 is constructed of the standard Corvette Convertible steel rather than the lightweight aluminum frame of the Z06. However, carbon fiber floor panel, front fenders, and, most importantly, hood.
Keeping costs down through the use of steel is likely the best move the company made. That’s because consumers will likely get all of the extras like leather upholstered interior, carbon fiber trim pieces, and anniversary badges and stripes. That’ll run just over $90,000 – which would’ve been more had the 427 been constructed differently.
Have to Get One
The one thing every Chevy dealer will boast is that the 427 is for the true driving enthusiast. The reason: This Corvette Convertible is only available in a six-speed manual transmission. More than that, only approximately a thousand of these convertibles are likely to be put on the market. So although it’s not technically a limited edition, it might as well be.
With so much power, the 427 lives up to every Dallas Chevy dealer’s promise of dynamic speed and control. Fat tires allow drivers to be speed demons on straight lines, able to hit up to 190 mph depending on the road. Even on curves and turns, the 427 is at the top of its game, seeing as highways and canyon roads are its thing.
So, if you’re looking for what’s become the standard in classic Chevy Corvette Convertibles and enjoy speed as much as you like style, the 427 is it. Although it might not be meant to set records on the track, it’ll still give every driver a thrill.
After getting your new car from a Dallas Chevy dealer, you may decide on taking a road trip. Road trips don’t have to be cross-country — you can take a local road trip. Choose from many places within two hours of Dallas for a great weekend road trip. You can go for a day or make arrangements for an overnight stay if you wish.
Fort Richardson: Fort Richardson is located on 228 State Park Road 61 in Jacksboro. If you want to camp or just visit for a day to visit several historic landmarks, this is a great road trip. It offers an educational value for children and adults and lots of nature, including hiking trails, bike trails and equestrian trails. If you leave early in the morning, you can have a full day of fun and be home by night; or you can camp at the park or reserve a local hotel if you want to stay overnight.
Cedar Hill State Park: If you prefer something closer, Cedar Hill is only about a half-hour drive from Dallas. It is located on 1570 West F.M. 1382 in Cedar Hill. You can enjoy fishing, hiking and trails, including biking, hiking and nature trails. This park is also wheelchair accessible. This would be perfect for having a birthday or anniversary party, as they have a day use group facility.
Cleburne State Park: Located at 5800 Park Road 21 in Cleburne, this park offers mountain bike trails, hiking trails, biking trails, a playground, a boat ramp and many other things to make for a fun day. It’s about an hour and a half from Dallas, so you can get there quickly and enjoy the entire day. If you are into camping, whether in a tent or an RV, the park also has campsites.
Instead of going on a long road trip, you can take a trip to a different area just outside of Dallas every weekend and call it an extended road trip. It not only gets you out of the house and makes it feel like you are doing something, but it also keeps the kids from getting too bored because each park has different things to see and different activities. With a new Chevy from a Dallas Chevy dealer, you’ll be sure to have a lot of fun every weekend.
