This month the spotlight is on our very own Service Adviser, Derek Mason. Derek is a new face to the company, having only worked at College Chevy for about three weeks. He’s been in the automotive industry for a couple years and previously worked as a Tire Technician at a discount tire shop. Derek is originally from South Lyon, MI but now resides in Grass Lake where he enjoys going on nature walks or outdoor adventures with his dog Buddy.
Derek also enjoys watching That 70’s Show, but when football season is here, he spends his time cheering on the Detroit Lions and Michigan Wolverines. As for the automotive side of things, Derek currently drives a 2015 Chevy Sonic and it’s his favorite car he’s ever owned. If he could chose a car that would match his personality, Derek would say the Colorado fits him perfectly. Even though Derek has a lot of Chevy favorites, his dream car is a 2014 Chevy Camaro ZL1 that he fell in love with the first time he took it for a ride.
We are very excited to have Derek as part of our staff and we hope you get the opportunity to work with him in our service drive. His favorite part about his job is being able to help out the customers, so don’t hesitate to come to Derek with any questions or concerns that you have.

In his free time, Jack enjoys outdoor activities and cheering on the Michigan State Spartans, especially their football and basketball teams.

It was announced in October that with the sixth generation of one America’s favorite muscle car comes the Camaro performance package, which aims to give Camaro drivers more options for customization and to improve its abilities as a sports car.
The performance package is backed by Chevrolet, so your warranty won’t be in jeopardy if you install the package on your car; all the parts in the package have been carefully tested by the Camaro team to make sure they fit perfectly with the car.
The brand new Camaro has a max of 455 horsepower without the performance package and a 6.2-liter V8 engine at its higher trims. The Camaro performance package includes a wide range of accessories including a performance exhaust, which enhances the sound and appearance of the Camaro, as well as a suspension-lowering kit that lowers the vehicle to make ride quality better and increase performance.
A performance brake package and air intake increase braking performance and make the car more aerodynamic. A range of engine covers are also offered with the Camaro for maximum style.
If you’re interested in getting one of your own, contact College Chevrolet Buick.
The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is the latest model of one of the most iconic muscle cars in America, so the news of Chevrolet announcing the new Chevy Camaro price and visualizer technology is exciting for auto enthusiasts. The 2016 Camaro will start at the very affordable price of $26,695, while the super-powered Camaro SS will started at $37,295.
Besides detailed pricing information for the various trim levels the Camaro is offered in, Chevy also released a visualizer to let Camaro buyers add and subtract features to a virtual model of the Camaro, giving them the chance to see which features they would like to add to their vehicle, as well as interior and exterior colors, stripes, and wheels.
The sixth generation Camaro includes several new features such as Chevrolet MyLink with Apple CarPlay, which enables drivers to connect their Apple device through their dashboard touchscreen and access all their apps, as well as 4G LTE connectivity with built-in Wi-Fi hotspot.
The 2016 Chevy Camaro reveal was as big and exciting as anticipated. The sixth-generation Camaro wowed the audience at Belle Isle with its refined look and race-ready performance.
The new 2016 Camaro is faster, stronger, and lighter than the previous generation, providing even more thrill when driving. There are six powertrain options, including the beastly LT1 6.2-liter V8 that generates 455 horsepower and 455 lb-ft of torque! All engines are available with either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission.
The all-new Camaro has been almost entirely redone with only two parts that carried over from the fifth generation. It’s truly a new take on the classic sports car.
Mark Reuss, General Motors executive vice president and Product Development, said, “For Camaro enthusiasts, it retains iconic design cues and offers even more performance. For a new generation of buyers, the 2016 Camaro incorporates our most innovative engineering ideas with finely honed performance and leading design.”
The sixth generation Camaro will go on sale later this year at College Chevrolet Buick , so get ready to take the ride of your life!
After months of anticipation–during which Chevrolet released teaser images and details painstakingly slowly–the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro has finally been revealed in all its glory. The premiere of the car took place at the Belle Isle racetrack last week.
The new Camaro is getting a positive response all around concerning its many changes, both physical and cosmetic. This vehicle has more power than ever, all while maintaining a sleeker look.
In fact, thanks to the usage of some lighter-weight metals, the 2016 Camaro is actually 200 pounds lighter than its predecessor. But the 2016 Camaro is no “lightweight,” and its turbo 4-cylinder engine can get up to 275 horsepower.
Another thing that long-term Camaro drivers will notice quickly once they get behind the wheel of a 2016 model: this version is two inches shorter than the model before it, making it easier than ever to park.

Special edition cars can be fun to drive and own, but having a unique name makes them stand out even more. Chevrolet has created a special edition Camaro painted in an exclusive Emerald Green Metallic color with other unique features and it wants help choosing a name.

Chevrolet will then announce the winning name when the Camaro debuts at the SEMA show in Las Vegas next month. Other than bragging rights, it doesn’t seem the name-picker gets anything. So, don’t expect to see a free Camaro landing in your driveway anytime soon.
“Chevrolet has made a tradition of offering special-edition models each spring, but this is the first time we’ve turned to the community of Camaro fans to name it,” said Todd Christensen, Camaro marketing manager, in a statement. “We can’t think of a better way to involve the owners and enthusiasts who have made it the segment’s best-selling sports car for four years running.”
In addition to its unique paint color, the special edition Camaro features an RS Appearance Package, Chrome Duke 21-inch accessory wheels, body-color SS hood extractor, body-color accessory ground effects package, body-color ZL1 rear spoiler, and Cyber Gray rally stripes.

GM isn’t going to wait until the American Auto Show in Los Angeles to make its newest reveal. The 2014 Chevrolet Camaro lineup will include a convertible option, which will be another reason why consumers can’t seem to get enough of this American Muscle car. Chevy is planning on making the new convertible’s reveal at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The 2014 Chevrolet Camaro model will include a slightly different look than previous versions.
Like the 2014 coupe, the convertible will have a thinner grill and headlights. It will also include a bigger air dam and hood vents. The back of the car is getting some minor changes as well. The tail lights will be reshaped and the deck will be more sculpted. The exterior isn’t the only thing getting minor updates, the interior will include the latest version of the MyLink System. The new MyLink entertainment and information system includes a 7-inch touchscreen in-dash display and also a display on the windshield.
Are you ready for the new 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible to make its debut?
While the return of the Corvette Stingray nameplate is certainly something to celebrate, we’d be foolish if we forget about the return of the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28.
First produced in 1966, the Camaro Z/28 is built with track speed and performance. With its strong but lightweight chassis and incredibly powerful small-block 7.0L LS7 V8 engine, the Camaro Z/28 is the ultimate track capable vehicle.
When building the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Chevy engineers to in to account the way air and friction affect vehicles at high speeds and made the Camaro Z/28 incredibly aerodynamic.
If you want the full track feel in a Camaro, the Camaro Z/28 is the car for you. The wheels go from 20 inches down to 19 to save you over 40 pounds. Not to mention removing the amenities to make your Camaro a true speed freak. Tire inflation kit, trunk carpeting, fog lights, multiple speakers – all taken away, even air conditioning is optional on the Z/28. This is not simply a Camaro to show-off, it’s a Camaro that show out.
Big things can be expected from all of the Chevy performance vehicles, but it’s good to see a car with a true unfiltered racing spirit back in the Chevrolet arsenal. The2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 will make it’s debut this fall.
