The concept vehicle that turned heads at auto shows around the country is headed to production

Every once in awhile, there is a new, innovative concept car that will change the face of the industry. This year, that concept car is the Chevrolet Bolt. Now, Chevrolet has announced that it will be moving forward with Bolt electric vehicle production, confirming that the industry is about to get a bit of a shock to its system.

“The message from consumers about the Bolt EV Concept was clear and unequivocal: Build it,” said Alan Batey, GM North America President. “We are moving quickly because of its potential to completely shake up the status quo for electric vehicles.”

The Bolt all-electric vehicle, which debuted earlier this year at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, has been set for sale in all 50 states, unlike Chevy’s previous electric vehicles. It will offer a GM-estimated 200-mile range with an unspecified powertrain, all for a value-oriented price of $30,000. This combination of range and value are sure to turn heads even more than the Bolt’s futuristic design, making it one of the most appealing EVs in the world before it even rolls off the assembly line.

Chevy Colorado Super Bowl Commercial Scares Football Fans

The Chevy Colorado Super Bowl Commercial Highlights Colorado’s 4G LTE Wi-Fi

Chevrolet just proved that shock value is one of the best ways to be remembered. Before the kickoff of Super Bowl XLIX on NBC, Chevrolet made 100 million football fans scramble when the American carmakers advertisement for the Chevrolet Colorado made them believe their TVs had failed—only to show viewers that it was merely a commercial for the Chevrolet Colorado.

Called “Blackout,” for good reason, the Chevy Colorado Super Bowl commercial appeared to be a live game feed that transitioned into static, then a blank screen, mere minutes before the big game was set to start. It then transitioned into sharing that the Colorado has 4G LTE WiFi, making it the perfect pickup truck for a time like this.

With this jaw-dropping commercial, Chevrolet proved that you don’t necessarily need an advertisement during the Super Bowl to make a lasting impression. If you are interested in seeing the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado for yourself—especially to check on the built-in WiFi hotspot—stop in to Stalker Chevrolet today!

Chevrolet Receives Four IIHS 2015 Top Safety Pick Ratings

At Chevrolet, your safety is our number one priority. That is why it comes as no surprise that four different Chevrolet models have received the 2015 Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The 2015 Spark, Volt, Malibu, and Equinox each proved that not only are they aesthetically pleasing and capable, but they are also some of the safest cars in the industry.

“Receiving this recognition from IIHS for the 2015 Spark, Volt, Malibu, and Equinox is great news for Chevrolet and even greater news for our customers,” said Steven Majoros, director Chevrolet Cars and Crossover Marketing.

Corvette Inspires New Chevrolet Volt Design

There are many things the hybrid Chevrolet Volt brings to the table, including fuel efficiency and an extended range. Now, Chevrolet is hoping to make consumers think beyond the Volt’s superior performance with a new Chevrolet Volt design that is sure to knock the socks off of anyone—including Corvette lovers.

The next-generation Volt will have a touch of sports car in its new design, taking some styling cues from the beloved Chevrolet Corvette, General Motors’ iconic sports car. A taut hood and hexagonal taillights will add a sportier feel to the hybrid car, helping the Volt shed a bit of its green-car persona.

Though it might look more like a sports car, the Volt will still offer an incredible amount of fuel efficiency. This includes a brand new system allowing the driver to adjust the degree of regenerative braking the Volt uses. The level is changed with steering-wheel paddles that can capture as much energy as possible.

First Generation Chevy Volt
Look for cues of the Corvette Stingray in next-gen Chevrolet Volt design. Chevy is promoting a sportier look than the current Volt.

With these big changes, the Chevrolet Volt is sure to make an even bigger impression on the car world. While there isn’t much information out there about the next-generation Volt, you can still stop in to Stalker Chevrolet and see what the current Volt has to offer.

Family Reunion at the Army/Navy Game Receives Bonus from Chevrolet

During the Army/Navy football game every year, Chevrolet and Wish for Our Heroes come together to hold a military family reunion during half time. This year, as the family of US Army Sgt. Jonathon Preston Thompson reunited, they received a bit of surprise—a brand-new 2015 Chevrolet Colorado.

“As we’ve seen with the Thompsons and millions of others, military families make huge sacrifices for our country, and it feels good to celebrate Sgt. Thompson’s homecoming with a brand-new truck,” said Dan Akerson, former General Motors Chairman and CEO and a graduate of the US Naval Academy.

We at Stalker Chevrolet were thrilled to see the Colorado join the family reunion at the Army/Navy game.

Sergeant Thompson served our country in two deployments. The family recently lost their house at Fort Riley in Kansas to a fire, which they are still recovering from. Hopefully, the Chevrolet Colorado will help them do just that. The Colorado was recently named Motor Trend magazine’s 2015 Truck of the Year, showing that its capabilities and perfect size will make sure the Thompsons have a dependable vehicle.

The Army/Navy game is not only a time for heroes to collide on the football field, but to also welcome home heroes from the battlefield.
