    Chevrolet is Making 4G LTE Data Easier to Buy - 07/06/2016

     Chevrolet is Making 4G LTE Data Easier to Buy



    BAY CITY, Mich. – Our society is becoming more and more connected. From smart phones to tablets, people are more integrated and connected than ever before. As the leading automaker in wireless connectivity, Chevrolet is making 4G LTE data easier to buy and therefore more accessible to its consumers. Now the OnStar 4G LTE data plan is half the price than it was just months ago. The new lower price will not only change the trend of current 4G LTE users, but increase potential users in the future.

    Chevrolet first introduced 4G LTE wireless data in June of 2014 and in the two years of production more than 2.1 million vehicles have been sold. Consumers use the data plan for multiple reasons. For Silverado drivers, the data plans are commonly used to benefit small business and drivers on-the-go. Chevrolet also noticed that over 60 percent of Suburban owners use the data plan. It is extremely common in SUV vehicles like the Suburban, Tahoe, and Traverse because of their popularity with growing families and their multi-device connection features.

    The new 4G LTE data plans are now standard on all new Chevrolet models with the OnStar Basic Plan. Take a look below at how the old prices compare to the new 50 percent reduction:

    Data Plan              Old Price      New Price


    1 GB/month               $20                 $10

    4 GB/month               N/A                 $20

    10 GB/month             $80                  $40

    20 GB/12 months      $150                $150

     Chevrolet is Making 4G LTE Data Easier to Buy

    The cost of the data plans has the ability to decrease due to the growing rate of 4G LTE data plan usage. With the lower prices, Chevrolet is making 4G LTE data easier to buy and expects to see a rise in consumers. You can access more data plan information at https://www.onstar.com/us/en/4glte-subscriber.html.

    At Hank Graff Chevrolet Bay City our professional sales team can answer any questions you may have about the 4G LTE data plans. They can even get you a test drive of the new 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, the 2016 Chevrolet Suburban, the 2016 Chevrolet Tahoe, and the 2016 Chevrolet Traverse. These new model vehicles come equipped with OnStar 4G LTE connectivity, allowing you access to wireless connections for up to seven different devices wherever you are! Schedule your next test drive with our team today.

    While you are thinking about your next data plan don’t forget to think about other vehicle maintenance that could be done on your current car, truck, SUV, or crossover.

    Chevrolet Proved to Dominate the Competition with the Silverado Steel Truck Bed - 06/23/2016

    Chevrolet Proved to Dominate the Competition with the Silverado Steel Truck Bed

    BAY CITY, Mich. – Chevrolet has amplified their heavy-duty truck label in the Silverado, starting with the truck bed. By advancing the vehicle's structure with different materials, Chevrolet proved to dominate the competition with the Silverado steel truck bed. The high strength steel alloy truck bed was created with a special roll forming process to enhance the material’s strength. But Chevrolet didn’t just want to make a new steel bed, they wanted to make sure it could withstand the toughest scenarios against the leading competitor's aluminum truck bed. Below are a few ways the steel bed and aluminum bed were put to the test.

    Laboratory testing:
    Both beds were tested in GM’s Research and Development Laboratory. By using a machine fitted wedge striker, GM tested the amount of energy impact the truck beds could withstand until the material was punctured. The tests resulted with the aluminum bed receiving punctures after 40 joules of impact-energy, and the steel bed didn’t see punctures until at 90 joules of impact energy.

    Landscaping blocks test:
    Chevrolet performed 12 landscaping block tests where 825 pounds of landscaping blocks were dropped in both the aluminum and steel beds (without lining). Out of the 12 demonstrations the aluminum bed saw a significant amount of punctures, averaging 4.3 holes per demonstration. The Silverado steel bed saw only dents and no punctures after 12 demonstrations. 

    Chevrolet Proved to Dominate the Competition with the Silverado Steel Truck Bed

    Toolbox test:
    There were 14 toolbox tests performed where Chevrolet dropped an empty metal toolbox from the same location of both truck beds. The results concluded the aluminum bed saw 1 toolbox dent and 13 toolbox punctures. The steel bed saw 12 dents and only 2 punctures. 

    After putting both the aluminum and the steel bed to the test, Chevrolet proved to dominate the competition with the Silverado steel truck bed. The new Silverado steel bed was made to help customers haul their toys, cargo, and tools without worrying about the condition of their vehicle. To get a hands-on feel of the Chevrolet Silverado, visit our sales team at Graff Bay City. You can get behind the wheel of a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado and discover why everyone loves the heavy-duty truck. Contact our dealership and schedule your test-drive today.

    Make sure your current vehicle is Silverado strong with our new Summer Car Care pages! Our new seasonal maintenance section will walk you through the importance of your fuel system, cooling and A/C system, and your external lights during the summer season. Our Summer Car Care also offers vehicle cosmetic repair suggestions and sun protection tips for your car, truck, SUV, or crossover’s interior and exterior. To schedule your summer car care appointment, contact our Graff Bay City Service Center online or call our dealership.

    • Wet Naps – Whether it is to wipe up dirt and grass stains, or to clean messy food hands, these will become an essential for your vehicle. Wet naps are a great universal tool to get a quick clean. 
    • Sunscreen – Even if the sun is not shining, the UV rays can cause burns and damage to your skin on overcast days. Protect yourself and your athletes with the proper SPF number. 
    • Paper Towels – Paper towels is another great universal tool that are helpful for cleaning up messy athletes. They can also be useful to hold food or clean the car. 
    • Travel Snacks – Every athlete is hungry when they are done playing a game or tournament. Be prepared to feed hungry bellies with a few travel snacks. Trail mix, fruit, veggies, or granola bars are easy and portable options. 
    • Bottled Water – Having bottled water on hand quenches thirsty kids, but it is also good to have for cleaning messes any time.
    • Chap stick – Fight chapped lips by keeping a stick around. Chap sticks also come with UV protection so you can keep lips from getting burned as well. 
    • Camping Folding Chairs/Blanket – While you worry about the athletes, don’t forget yourself! Keep a few chairs or a blanket in the car for when it’s time to sit back and watch the game. 
    • Umbrella/Poncho – It is the summer season and rain happens, even when we least expect it. Always be ready with some rain protection gear!

    Chevrolet’s Silverado Gained Maximum Performance With A New Air Intake System - 06/15/2016

     Chevrolet’s Silverado Gained Maximum Performance With A New Air Intake System

    BAY CITY, Mich. -- Chevrolet knew they wanted to get more from the engine of the Silverado HD. By working on the air intake with many challenging real-world driving conditions, Chevrolet found a way to get the Silverado performing better than before. Chevrolet’s Silverado gained maximum performance with a new air intake system. The new air intake system provides dry cool air to the Silverado engine during any kind of weather.

    How does the air intake system help?

    The new air intake system provides 60 percent of the air to the diesel engine of the Silverado HD. With the new system the air provided to the engine is closer to the temperature of the outside air, which is much cooler than the air under the hood. Cooler air helps the engine maintain full power and speed even while the truck is trailering in tough weather conditions.

    Dry and clean air also helps the Silverado HD diesel engine. The air intake system includes an air/water separator that provides combustion-enhancing dry air for the engine to get maximum performance. In the system the air enters a special air filter chamber that specially separates the humidity from the air before it is sent to the engine.

    What makes the air intake system so successful?

    To have the amount of success from the air filtering system, it is specially designed on top of the hood of the Silverado. The hood scoop is what provides the 60 percent of the air intake. There is also a ram-air effect that occurs when the Silverado HD is driving at highway speeds, this helps pack more air into the engine through the front fenders and pulls an additional 40 percent of air.

    By providing cooler, dryer air to the engine, Chevrolet’s Silverado gained maximum performance with a new air intake system. After testing the Silverado in weather conditions from light rain to monsoon like conditions, from light snow to wind driven hail, the Silverado HD’s new air intake system has successfully enhanced the performance of the diesel engine. 

     Chevrolet’s Silverado Gained Maximum Performance With A New Air Intake System

    If you are interested in getting behind the wheel of a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado then visit our team at Hank Graff Chevrolet in Bay City, MI! We will set you up with a test drive of one of Chevrolet’s toughest pick up trucks. Experience the comfort with the towing experience that the Silverado provides.

You may find that by applying these 3 tips to your teen’s driving experience they will not only grow into becoming alert and safe drivers, but these tips may also help you become more comfortable with them behind the wheel.

    Take a look at our 3 tips for parents with drivers below:

    Start Off With Small Trips
    Your teen may be anxious to go on that cross country road trip with their friends, but you know they aren’t ready at first. Start your teen with making small trips around town. Whether they have their driver’s permit or just earned their driver’s license, making smaller trips will get them comfortable behind the wheel and help them grow more confident with their driving. So when you need a gallon of milk from the local grocery store, have your teen drive the car to get there!

    Set A Good Example and Good Rules
    Your teen will learn their driving habits from you! Set a good example by obeying traffic laws, not using your phone while driving, and always buckling your seat belt. If you want your teen to be a smart driver, then be one too!

    Setting your own rules at home is a great way to implement a responsible driver. Curfews and passenger limitations are ways to know your teen is practicing safe driving. Also by having your teen participate in the financial cost that goes into a vehicle helps teach them about maintenance responsibilities.

    3 Tips for Parents With Teen Drivers

    Get Your Teen Prepared in Case of an Accident

    Even if you have faith in your teen’s driving, getting behind the wheel of a car puts anyone at risk of many unexpected events. If your teen experiences getting in an accident you want to make sure they know what to do. Having emergency kits in the vehicle at all times is just one step you can take to get your teen more prepared.

    By using these 3 tips for parents with teen drivers, you will be able to encourage and teach your teen how to be safe and responsible when they get behind the wheel. Along with teaching your teen how to become a safe driver, you should find a vehicle that also works to keep them safe like the new 2016 Chevrolet Cruze. The 2016 Chevrolet Cruze not only comes with top technology and safety features, but it also can be purchased with Chevy’s new 24/7 Promise. The 24/7 Promise offers everything from vehicle maintenance assistance to OnStar capabilities. Now your teen can have the support of you and Chevrolet.

    Don’t know if buying another vehicle is right for your family? Take a look at our Buying vs. Leasing page. There you can learn about the difference between buying and leasing a vehicle and see which option is best for you.

    Celebrate National Tire Safety Week with Graff Bay City - 06/01/2016

    Celebrate National Tire Safety Week with Graff Bay City


    BAY CITY, Mich. – Do you know proper tire safety? From May 29th through June 4th it's National Tire Safety Week! With the summer season bringing more vehicle travel and long road trips, now is the perfect time to learn how to keep yourself and your passengers’ safe. Below we have put together a tire safety checklist to remember when traveling. Now you can keep your tires safe at all times and celebrate National Tire Safety Week with Graff Bay City!

    Tire Safety Checklist:

    Have you checked your tire pressure?

    Before leaving for a long trip or vacation, make sure you check your tire’s air pressure. Proper tire inflation will help your vehicle drive better, help you save on fuel costs, and keep your tires performing to the best of their abilities. If you need help finding your vehicle’s air pressure recommendations check your Owner’s Manual.

    Have you checked your tire tread?

    Your tire tread is important because the tread keeps your tires gripped properly to the ground, giving you a safe drive. There are some ways to check your tire tread while at home! Visit our FAQ page to learn the steps to performing the Penny Test on your tires.

    Do you have a spare available?


    Even if you are prepared for the worst, the unexpected can happen. Having a spare tire on hand will help you not be stuck on the side of the road. If you do have to use a spare tire remember to not drive over 50 miles with one, and not over 50 mph. Try getting to a tire service location as fast as possible. 

    Celebrate National Tire Safety Week with Graff Bay City

    Have you had a tire rotation?

    Routine tire rotations are a great and convenient way to keep your tires in good condition for longer periods of time. They help with even tire tread wear, and help fuel efficiency. We recommend getting a tire rotation every 6,000 miles or every other oil change. Schedule an appointment with our Service Center today for your next tire rotation.

    Do you need a tire alignment?


    Have you noticed your steering wheel pulling to one side or the other? This could be due to your tire alignment being off. Your tires should always be parallel to one another when you are driving. Having a problem with your tire alignment can lead to faster tire tread wear and cause more damage in the long run. 


    By going through your tire checklist you will be prepared for anything once you have hit the road. Do you have questions about tire maintenance? Visit our FAQ page for answers to all things tires. To learn more about tire service you can also visit the tire routine maintenance page of our website. Celebrate National Tire Safety week with Graff Bay City and visit us for your tire maintenance services! Our Service Center can help inspect, repair and replace all of your tires. Schedule your appointment today
