2016 Chevrolet Camaro Rendered

2016 Chevrolet Camaro Rendered
BAY CITY, Mich. – It's the name of the game. When an updated or new vehicle is nearing its debut, rumors, spy shots, and renderings begin to circle the web. While these materials give us some insight into what the car, truck or SUV will look like, there is still some mystery involved because nobody can know for sure what the final model will look like once the vehicle is done testing. Well, we're at it again with Top Speed's 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Rendering...could this be it?!

The 2016 version of the sports car has been spotted out and about around Detroit while undergoing testing near GM's headquarters, and the people at Top Speed have done a great job rendering the 2016 Chevy Camaro from those sightings. While there is definitely still a 1967-69 influence, and none of the changes appear too drastic, some minor updates will add to a design that is lighter, sleeker, and more dynamic. Better proportions, a cleaner shape, and a small-block exhaust note will all ride on GM's Alpha platform. However, details on where the car's power will come from are still unknown. But if the Camaro SS 1LE and Z/28 tell us anything, the 2016 Camaro will be nothing short of impressive and is expected to offer seven-speed manual and eight-speed automatic transmission options.

A main driver in sticking with the current model's '67-'69 influence is the car's first place standing in its segment and continued sales success. Only time will tell if this 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Rendering is the real deal, so stay tuned for more updates!

Or, stop by our Saginaw Chevy Dealership to check out the current model 2014 Chevrolet CamaroHank Graff Chevy is located at 3636 Wilder Road, Bay City, MI 48706 and we are here to help you find the perfect car, truck, or SUV 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.

How To Use Chevrolet Collision Alert in the 2014 Silverado
BAY CITY, Mich. – Today's Chevrolet lineup offers top of the line safety protection thanks to recent advances in technology that allow vehicles to stay one step ahead. While you know what basic safety systems, like airbags, do to keep you safe, are you confused when it comes to new additions like collision alert, side blind zone alert, or lane departure warning? Well we're here to help and today we are going to show you How To Use Chevrolet Collision Alert in the 2014 Silverado!

The good news is that these new safety systems are designed to protect you every time you hit the road. Specifically, Chevrolet's Forward Collision Alert feature works to prevent any possible collisions with the vehicle in front of you. By continually monitoring how close your vehicle is to the cars or trucks in front of you, Forward Collision Alert can step in and alert you with visual and audible signals if closing speeds detect a potential collision. With this feature, you can utilize the buttons on your steering wheel to set at what distance you want your vehicle to notify you of any danger – you can choose one of three distances, from closest to farther away.

Watch as we demonstrate How To Use Chevrolet Collision Alert in the 2014 Silverado [VIDEO]:



Chevrolet's Forward Collision Alert feature is available on more than just the Silverado, so make sure to ask if it is available on your vehicle.
