2015 Chevrolet Tahoe & Suburban Z71 Package Revealed

2015 Chevrolet Tahoe & Suburban Z71 Package Revealed

BAY CITY, Mich. – About a month ago, news broke that Chevy may offer a Z71 package for the 2015 Suburban and Tahoe SUVs, however no details about exactly what that package would include were known...until now! At the Texas State Fair, Chevrolet revealed the 2015 Tahoe & Suburban Z71 Package details that will be available this fall!

The Z71 edition is really for those looking for an SUV with off-road performance, enhanced capability, and exclusive technology features. The Z71 package is synonymous with off-road performance so the new Tahoe and Suburban will add off-road tires mounted on 18-inch wheels, a front skid plate, a unique grille and running boards, Z71 branding on the interior and exterior, fog lamps, front tow hooks and front park assist!

The 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe & Suburban Z71 package makes the SUVs just as capable on the inside too. In addition to Chevy's already impressive technology suite, the Tahoe and Suburban equipped with the Z71 package will receive OnStar 4G LTE with a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, wireless phone charging capability, and hands-free liftgate operation. The wireless charging station allow users to charge their devices simply by placing them on a small mat in the vehicle that is actually a magnetic inductive charging system. And the convenience continues around back where the hands-free liftgate will allow you to open the trunk by simply waving your foot under a sensor located beneath the bumper.

2015 Chevrolet Tahoe & Suburban Z71 Package Revealed

If you're interested in the technical improvements that Chevrolet's Z71 package will offer the Tahoe and Suburban, take a look below:
  • Updated coil-over-shock independent front suspension design
  • A wider rear track that contributes to a more planted stance
  • Shear-style body mounts, which reduce body shake and enhance the feeling of structural stiffness and improve damping performance when compared with previous compression mounts
  • Eighteen-inch standard wheels are a half-inch wider than previous models, reducing tire flex for improved cornering performance
  • New, electric variable-assist power steering system enhances fuel economy and tailors steering assist to vehicle speed
  • New four-wheel-disc brake system with Duralife™ brake rotors that offer up to double the service life
  • Available automatic locking rear differential that provides greater traction when needed and greater driving comfort when it’s not
  • Magnetic Ride Control - a real-time damping system that delivers more precise body motion control.

Motor Trend's 2014 Best Driver's Car is Chevrolet Camaro Z/28

Motor Trend's 2014 Best Driver's Car is Chevrolet Camaro Z/28
BAY CITY, Mich. – When Chevrolet got to work redesigning the Camaro Z/28, it was the automaker's mission to create the most capable, best-handling Camaro in history. Well, that mission was a success because the 2014 Chevy Camaro Z/28 is Motor Trend's 2014 Best Driver's Car!

Only new or significantly revised performance vehicles are considered for the award which requires extensive subjective and objective testing. To determine which vehicle delivered the most engaging behind the wheel experience, Motor Trend conducted testing including digitally instrumented laps at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and high-speed driving up and down a 4.3-mile hill climb on a closed rural highway before coming to the conclusion that the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro is Motor Trend's Best Driver's Car! In fact, the fifth generation Camaro is the first American-brand car to win the honor in the 7 years the award has been around!

Here's what Motor Trend had to say about it:
“The transformation of the fifth-generation Camaro from ‘muscle car that handles pretty well’ to Best Driver’s Car winner is astounding. You feel the superior engineering in how the car responds to inputs both internal and external. From within, the car reacts immediately and precisely to your commands but doesn’t punish your mistakes. From the outside, the Z/28’s suspension attacks bumps and dips with an unbridled passion for keeping the tires on the pavement.”
Not that you needed another reason to make the 2014 Camaro Z/28 your own, but now you do because it has been officially recognized as the 2014 Best Driver's Car! If you want to experience what it's all about, check out the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Brochure or come see us today at our Midland Chevrolet Dealership!

Hank Graff Chevy is located at 3636 Wilder Road, Bay City, MI 48706 and we can help you find the perfect Camaro for your needs! For more information on Hank Graff Chevrolet, or for any questions call us at (989) 684-4411 or visit our website: www.GraffBayCity.com.

2015 Chevy Colorado Offers Segment-Leading Fuel Economy

2015 Chevy Colorado Offers Segment-Leading Fuel Economy
BAY CITY, Mich. – The arrival of the new 2015 Chevrolet Colorado has been very much anticipated, and this week GM announced the midsize trucks are officially on their way to dealerships! We can't wait for the first ones to arrive and we're even more excited that the 2015 Chevy Colorado offers Segment-Leading Fuel Economy!

According to recent EPA fuel economy estimates, the midsize Colorado offers an 3-5 mpg advantage over competing V6 pickup trucks with automatic transmissions. Expected to offer 26 mpg on the highway/18 mpg in the city with a combined fuel economy estimate of 21 mpg, the 2015 Chevy Colorado will offer segment-leading fuel economy with its 2WD model equipped with a 3.6L gasoline V6 engine. Impressive fuel economy is available in the 4x4 model as well – 24 mpg on the highway/17 mpg in the city/20 mpg combined.

It just goes to show, you don't have to spend a lot of money to own a vehicle that is capable and fun to drive, and you won't have to spend a lot at the pump either! So, if you need a truck, but your needs don't require the full-size 2014 Chevrolet Silverado, the new Colorado will be at our Linwood Chevrolet Dealership any day!
