Look Out 2012, Here Comes 2013

Well folks, we’ve reached the final weekend of 2012. A year that included the United States of America being introduced to the Chevy Spark, the release of the final line of Chevy Avalanche, the Detroit Tigers making the world series, Megatron breaking Jerry Rice’s receiving yardage record, the unveiling of the new look Silverado, Buick’s newest member, the Encore, has begun production, and so much more. With all that we think it’s fair to say 2012 has been a pretty good year.

But what can we expect from 2013? Well, if history has taught us anything, it won’t be more of the same. All we can do is to expect the unexpected.

So, be on the look out for more innovative features and designs from Buick and Chevrolet (Corvette C7? Buick Grand National?).

And don’t forget, College Chevrolet Buick is changing things up for 2013, too. Our new look showroom and service center will be completed next year! As always we’re working to provide you with the best customer service experience possible, so if you have anything you want to share don’t hesitate to contact us.

It’s What You’ve Been Waiting for: The 2014 Chevy Silverado

For months and months, Chevrolet has been dishing out tidbits of information about the new Silverado. We knew that it would have a redesigned exterior, new powerful V8 engines and a brand new 4.3 L V6 option, an upgrade console and dashboard, but we didn’t really know anything until we got to see the 2014 Silverado unveiled live on Facebook this week.

With an entrance that is usually reserved for professional wrestling, we got our first peek at the new Silverado. The exterior has bolder, cleaner curves and edges and a powerful frame that builds on the 95 years of Chevy trucks.

The addition of three new EcoTec3 engines gives the Silverado more power and improved fuel efficiency.

 

Perhaps the most drastic change is the upright instrument panel, six gauge instrument cluster and host of storage compartments in the redesigned interior.

Helen Emsley, Silverado design director had this to say, “Changes to the exterior of the 2014 Silverado can be described as evolutionary, but the updates to the interior are dramatic. The meticulous attention to detail and the steps we took to ensure optimal driver and passenger comfort and convenience, are reflected in the fact that the new interiors rated off the charts in customer clinics.”

College Chevrolet Buick is thrilled with the way the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado turned out and we can’t wait to see it on our showroom floor next year. For more information on the 2014 Silverado visit www.chevrolet.com or call 517-629-2151.

Boot up your PlayStation 3 to test drive the new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7

Car enthusiasts and gear heads alike are eagerly awaiting the world debut of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 in January, and who can blame them! The C7 will sport a V-8 direct injection small- block engine with power rating of 450 horsepower and rumored to fly from 0 to 60 in four seconds. For those of you who are anxiously waiting to test drive one of these new Chevy power houses, you may only have to go as far as your living room.

 

The popular PlayStation 3 racing game Grand Turismo (GT) 5 has released a detailed prototype version of the C7 free to download from the PlayStation network. GM stated “careful attention was paid to the tiniest details from the creases and wrinkles in the soft camouflage used to disguise the new design to specific driving characteristics that are currently being tuned and refined ahead of the vehicle’s official debut”.  With this free download, PlayStation owners can now not only “test drive” the new C7, but push it to its limits on the world’s most notorious tracks and raceways.

So what are you waiting for? Rev up your PlayStation 3, buckle up on the couch, and put the pedal to the metal with the new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 for an in home test drive session. We here at College Chevrolet Buick will be tearing up the tracks, and we hope you will too!
