For the Cure: Breast Cancer Awareness at Stalker Chevrolet

This October marks Stalker Chevy’s second in its strong commitment in the battle against breast cancer. All month long, Chevy employees, dealers, and customers will be sporting pink and raising money for the American Cancer Society to fund research, promote wellness, and educate the public on the growing threat of breast cancer, as well as to lend support to breast cancer patients and their families. Stalker Chevy plans to help everyone at Chevrolet blow last year’s total of $1.1 million out of the water.

As a symbol for the fight against this disease, which affects 1 out of 8 women, the towers of GM’s world headquarters at the Renaissance Center will glow bright with pink bands the whole month of October. These symbols will be a reminder of all the work every one of us can do to help fight the good fight against breast cancer.

Chevrolet is getting involved in a number of ways, like the hundreds and hundreds of employee- and dealership-sponsored breast cancer walks to raise funds. To raise awareness, a Making Strides Against Breast Cancer-themed pink Camaro SS pace car and a Techno Pink 2013 Chevrolet Spark will be making several appearances at these walks. Chevrolet has also hosted a “test drive” pledge, wherein Chevy donated $10 for every test drive done at a certified Chevy dealership.

Stalker Chevrolet is also offering a Chevrolet certified service rebate donation. When getting their cars serviced, customers can elect to donate some or all of their service rebates (up to $150), and Chevrolet will match the donation. Also in Des Moines is the Komen Iowa Race for the Cure, on October 27, 2012 at the State of Iowa Capitol Grounds. Information can be found online at http://www.komeniowa.org/komen-race-for-the-cure/race-information/.

Stalker Chevrolet encourages everyone to do their part—in whatever way they can—this month and all year long to help fight the battle against breast cancer!

Nothing but Trucks

It’s truck month here in Creston, Iowa, and Stalker Chevrolet knows just how to celebrate. Stalker Chevy knows that the toughest drivers need the toughest vehicles to keep up, so all month long, Stalker will offer great deals on all Chevrolet trucks, crossovers, and SUVs.

The crowd-favorite Silverado can’t come with a better deal. This month only, customers will get 0% APR for 60 months, plus some a big chunk of change with a trade-in. Looking for a Suburban or a Tahoe? They each feature 0.9% APR for 60 months or $1,500 in customer cash. Longing for an Avalanche? Now is the time to act as it comes with a 0.9% APR, but only if you get it during Chevy Truck Month. Don’t forget about the Traverse, which is available with 0% APR for 72 months or two grand in customer cash!

This deal only lasts as long as September does, so time is running out! If you think you’re tough enough to handle a Chevy truck, head on down to Stalker Chevrolet today to sit yourself behind the wheel of one and show us what you’ve got!

If these great deals haven’t convinced you to stop in and check out a new Chevy truck, here are a few more things that you may want to consider:

  • Chevy trucks can tow a lot!
  • There are few better sites than a man, his dog, and his truck.
  • Its uncommon for a vehicle to look just as good dirty as it does clean…but all Chevy trucks do.
  • Chevrolet doesn’t compromise. Chevy trucks are fully capable for any task, occasion, or trip you can think up.

2013 Chevy Malibu Helps Show that Mothers Know Best

Mothers know all about safety, comfort, and style, so when it came to car creation, the Malibu Moms were ready to take the wheel.  The Malibu Moms are a group of four moms who also happen to be brilliant engineers.  For the 2013 Chevy Malibu these ladies combined their areas of expertise to make one amazing automobile.

One of the things that the Malibu Moms wanted to make sure they built into the 2013 Chevy Malibu was a quiet and smooth ride – so that they would be able to hear their kids talking in the background.

Rebecca Lindland, director of research at IHS Automotive, believes that women engineers offer a different perspective to the design and engineering process because they often have a more innate sense of safety and are generally more aware of family needs compared to men.

These views and other ideas from the Malibu Moms contributed in creating the all-new Malibu.  The 2013 Chevy Malibu will be in dealership in 100 countries over six continents.  Stop in to Stalker Chevrolet to find out what the Malibu Moms already know…mothers do know best.

Chevy Volt Has Extended Electric Range For 2013 Model

In year three of its production, the Chevy Volt gets a nice boost in range when running in its all-electric mode. The 2013 Chevy Volt will offer 38 miles on a full charge compared to the 35 miles in previous Volt.

The Volt will also get a nice boost on its EPA efficiency rating, jumping from 94 to 98 MPGe, or Miles Per Gallon Equivalent–a measure of how far the vehicle can travel on electricity with the energy content of 1 gallon of gasoline.

To find the culprit for the increase battery life, look no further than to the enhanced battery pack. The battery pack in the 2013 Volt is able to hold 16.5 kilowatt-hours of energy, up from 16, and the car can draw on 10.8kWh compared to the 10.3kWh on the 2011 and 2012 Volts.

With the increase in energy for the Volt, drivers can expect the time to a full charge to also increase.

Once the Volt’s battery pack is depleted it switches to it’s 1.4L gasoline range extender to power a generator that distributes electricity to the 149-hp electric motor that actually turns the drive wheels.

The 2013 Chevrolet Volt is expected to have a total range 380 miles, factoring in electric plus gasoline.

Another added feature for consumers a 2013 Chevy Volt is the addition of a “Hold Drive” button that allows owners to conserve battery-pack energy for use at a particular time or when it will help make the car more efficient.

Chevrolet also plans to outfit the low-emission package, standard on later 2012 Volts sold in California, to those 2013 Volts sold in New York state as well, making them eligible for High-Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane access with only a single occupant.
