2015 Chevy Colorado Offers Segment-Leading Fuel Economy - 09/19/2014

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!

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

Along his journey through Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, Montana, Idaho, and Washington, and then back through Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Iowa, and Illinois, John is going to explore all of the local sites and see in which states he is able to find charging stations for the Volt or is able to hook up the portable charger. Not only that but this cross-country trip will show us all what the Chevrolet Volt is really made of!

The journey kicks off on September 5th and we're ready to highlight his adventures along the way, so make sure you stay tuned to all of Graff Bay City's social networks!

Quick & Easy Road Trip Snacks to Pack - 07/29/2014

Quick & Easy Road Trip Snacks to PackBAY CITY, Mich. – What's the first thing your kids say when you all pile in the car for a summer road trip? "Are we there yet?" may take first place but, "I'm hungry!" is probably a close second. While we can't help you get to your destination any faster, we can help you keep everyone's hunger and energy levels in check with these Quick & Easy Road Trip Snacks to Pack for your next vacation!

When you're prepping your car for a summer road trip, aside from making sure your vehicle itself is safe and running well, you want to make sure you are prepared to keep your passengers happy by keeping their bellies full. And when it comes to eating on the open road, there are a few key criteria for the best take-along snacks: tasty, healthy, easily fit into a cooler, won't make a mess, and can be eaten without dishes or utensils! Take a look at our recommendations and share your ideas in the comments section!

Quick & Easy Road Trip Snacks to Pack

Fruit
For ultimate simplicity, you can opt for personal sized fruits like apples, bananas, pears, etc. Or throw chunks of pineapple, melon, or other small fruits like grapes into a bag and you're ready to go!

Veggies
The same goes for veggies. Chop up your favorite and throw into a plastic bag. You could even bring along some hummus for dipping!

Packaged Snacks
If you're looking for a road trip snack that will stay fresh a little longer, bring along your favorite healthy packaged snack. Think granola bars, crackers, cereal, pretzels, trail mix, dried fruit, string cheese, etc. As it goes with packaged snacks though, just make sure to take a peek at the nutrition label first so you know what is really in your snack.

Sandwiches
For something a little more filling, sandwiches are a great snack to make up before you hit the road and then everyone can share. Keep it simple with nut butter and whole grain bread, or mix it up with a tortilla roll up!

Frozen Water Bottles
This idea is genius! Freeze some of your water bottles so they can be used as ice packs, and then as you near your destination they will thaw and can double as a refreshing drink for any thirsty passengers.

If you want to get a little crazy, you could even make up your favorite snacks in tupperware and bring along some plastic utensils to enjoy them during your journey. But when it comes to easy road trip snacks, it's all about keeping in mind what your family likes and what will keep everyone's spirits up when the drive gets long. Don't forget a few napkins just in case, and of course enjoy the ride!

If you need any help making sure your vehicle is ready for your summer road trip, stop by our Bay City Chevrolet Dealership and we can help you out! Hank Graff Chevy is located at 3636 Wilder Road, Bay City, MI 48706 and we can help you find the perfect vehicle for your weekend getaway! For more information on Hank Graff Chevrolet, or for any questions call us at (989) 684-4411 or visit our website: www.GraffBayCity.com.

IIHS Names 3 Chevrolets to Recommended Used Vehicles for Teens - 07/23/2014

IIHS Names 3 Chevrolets to Recommended Used Vehicles for Teens
BAY CITY, Mich. – A recent survey of parents by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety revealed that many teens drive older vehicles and more than half of the parent's young drivers drove a vehicle that was a 2006 model year or earlier. You're probably thinking what's the big deal about teenagers driving used cars? Well, many of those vehicles lack the important safety features and technologies that work to keep us, and especially new drivers, safe.

Worry not! For the first time ever, the IIHS released their Recommended Used Vehicles for Teen Drivers, and included three Chevrolets! Making the IIHS' Best Choices (under $20,000) list, the Chevy Malibu, Chevy Equinox, and Chevy Traverse all earned Good ratings in the IIHS moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests; at least four out of five stars in federal government crash tests; and offer standard stability control to help avoid rollover crashes. So if your young driver is hitting the road soon and a brand new vehicle isn't realistic, check out these three Chevrolets on IIHS' List of Recommended Used Vehicles for Teens.

However, while a safe vehicle can help to protect your child, another important factor to remember when they get behind the wheel is behavior. A $2-million GM Foundation grant funded a recent Safe Kids Worldwide report which revealed some shocking statistics. It was found that motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death to teens between the ages of 13 and 19, and of those who died, half were not wearing their seat belts!

It can be a stressful time when you child becomes old enough to drive, but with safe vehicles and great training, we can keep our teens safe! If you need help finding a vehicle that will protect your young driver, we are here to help! Hank Graff Chevy is located at 3636 Wilder Road, Bay City, MI 48706 and we can help you find the perfect vehicle for your weekend getaway! For more information on Hank Graff Chevrolet, or for any questions call us at (989) 684-4411 or visit our website: www.GraffBayCity.com.

Standard 8-Speed Transmission on 2015 Chevy Silverado - 07/21/2014

Standard 8-Speed Transmission on 2015 Chevy Silverado
BAY CITY, Mich. – Not only is it already one of the best pick-up trucks on the market, but it's getting even better because the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado will offer an eight-speed automatic transmission, standard! Which means, Silverado drivers can now feel more confident behind the wheel whether they have a light or heavy load.

The 2015 Chevrolet Silverado's new standard eight-speed automatic transmission, Hydra-Matic 8L90, is about the same size and weight as the six-speed automatic transmission, but will offer a better experience for drivers. With a wider, 7.0 overall gear ratio spread, drivers who are trailering or towing a heavy load can start off more confidently. Plus, the new eight-speed enables numerically lower rear axle ratios, reducing engine rpm on the highway.

Not only will the 8L90 be one of the first in any light-duty pickup when it goes into production sometime during the fourth quarter of 2014, but the 6.2L EcoTec3 V-8 is also the most powerful engine offered in the segment! Boasting 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque, the engine can also seamlessly transition to four-cylinder operation to improve fuel economy under lighter loads.

So whatever your pickup truck needs may be, Chevrolet is there to help with a truck that fits those needs perfectly. To learn more about which model is right for you, come visit us today! Hank Graff Chevy is located at 3636 Wilder Road, Bay City, MI 48706 and we can help you find the perfect vehicle for your weekend getaway! For more information on Hank Graff Chevrolet, or for any questions call us at (989) 684-4411 or visit our website: www.GraffBayCity.com.

Hank Graff's Life-Sized 1954 Corvette In A Box - 06/18/2014

BAY CITY, Mich. – Have you heard the buzz about the son who gave his dad a restored 1954 Corvette for his retirement? It's making headlines everywhere and guess what, it was actually Hank Graff who received the 'Vette from his son Chris Graff! See what CorvetteBlogger.com had to say about it below –
We’ve all heard of trailer queens, but this might be the ultimate!
Chris Graff decided to give his father Hank a very unique retirement gift: a boxed Corvette. But this wasn’t a 1/25 scale model in a box; this was a real 1954 Corvette on a trailer with a custom-made 8.5-foot-tall by 24-foot-long box built around it that makes it appear as if the Jolly Green Giant has a new toy to play with. 
The public got their first glimpse of the the boxed-car in person at the Graffs’ Chevydealership during their Festival of Corvettes in Davison, Michigan. It’ll also be on display at the June 20-24 Back to the Bricks Michiana promo tour, July 11-12 gathering in Mt. Pleasant and Aug. 12-16 signature events in Genesee County. 
“We fell in love with a car box and we thought we’d build a car box at one point and time. That transformed from a trailer to a box to move a car around in,” said Tom Kelly, the dealership’s special projects manager. “We hated the feeling of going to a car show and having to cancel because of the weather.” 
When a 1954 Corvette was traded in at the dealership, they began a seven-month restoration that Hank didn’t realize was actually going to wind up being a retirement gift for him from his son. 
“We built the car that Chevrolet would have loved to build had they had the technology back then that we have today,” Kelly said. 
The box features a life-size photo of the car’s rear end on the back with operating tail lights and Hank’s photo. A neat feature is a graphic that points out the “toy” is for ages 16+ since you have to have a license to drive it! It also promises “real rubber tires” and “functional steering,” among other features. 
The box takes on a really cool look at night when LED lights from above and below put the Corvette in the spotlight. 
“As handsome as it is in the daylight and unique as it is, it is amazing when it sets out on display for the evening hours,” Kelly said. 
The life-sized toy box is already drawing a lot of attention, having made its public debut last weekend at Back to the Bricks in Cadillac, where it was the subject of many double takes and subsequent photos.

Special Edition Corvette 'Zora'? - 06/17/2014

Special Edition Corvette 'Zora'?

BAY CITY, Mich. – Zora Arkus-Duntov. He was the father of the Corvette and by adding a V-8 engine to the first generation Corvette, he was able to take the vehicle into sports car territory. He also introduced the Grand Sport program which helped make the second generation Corvette a world class racing success. So why the Corvette history lesson?

According to the United States Patent and Trademark Office, General Motors has just trademarked the name Zora making us think a special edition Corvette 'Zora' may be on the horizon! Trademarking a name is nothing new. Automakers do it all the time for future models or to protect their history. However, this particular filing is significant because of the wording which states GM will reserve Zora for "motor land vehicles, namely, automobiles."

Although a special edition Corvette 'Zora' has not been confirmed by General Motors, we will keep you updated on all the latest Chevy news right here! Hank Graff Chevy is located at 3636 Wilder Road, Bay City, MI 48706 and we can help you find the perfect vehicle for your weekend getaway! For more information on Hank Graff Chevrolet, or for any questions call us at (989) 684-4411 or visit our website: www.GraffBayCity.com.
