    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.

    • 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

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.

    This pace car made its mark as becoming one of the most recognizable pace cars in the speedway’s history with orange-over white paint scheme.

    1982 Camaro Z28
    The Camaro Z28 introduced the third generation of the Camaro and was driven by Indy 500 winner, Jim Rathmann.

    1993 Camaro Z28
    In 1993 the Camaro Z28 showcased daring back and white paint scheme highlights with multicolored ribbons and matching interior.

    2010 Camaro SS (2009 and 2010 Indianapolis 500)

    The 2010 Camaro SS made its mark at the famous brickyard in its first and only back-to-back appearance. First in 2009 the Camaro was driven by “Transformers" star Josh Duhamel, and then in 2010 it was driven by “Good Morning America” anchor Robin Roberts (who was only the second woman to ever drive an Indy pace car).

    2011 Camaro SS

    In 2011 the Camaro debuted for its third year in a row as the pace car. That year it had also paid homage to the 1969 pace car and was dressed in white and orange.

    2014 Camaro Z/28

    This version of the Camaro pace car became the most track-focused Camaro with a 7.0L LS7 V-8 engine, high performance brake rotors, and 19 inch aluminum wheels.

    2017 Camaro SS 50th Anniversary Edition

    This year the Camaro sported “100th Running of the Indianapolis 500” graphics in celebration of the 100th anniversary, as well as the 50th anniversary of the Camaro.

    3 Tips for Parents With Teen Drivers - 06/03/2016

    3 Tips for Parents With Teen Drivers


    BAY CITY, Mich. – Having a teen driver in the house can be exciting and nerve-racking at the same time. If your teen has started driving or has recently received their license, take a look at our 3 tips for parents with teen drivers. 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. Then take a closer look at the buying and leasing processes with our How to Buy and How to Lease pages. At Graff Bay City we want you to be just as informed as we are! If you have additional questions about buying or leasing a vehicle you can contact our finance experts today.

    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

    Are you looking for a vehicle that can handle anything on the road? Then visit Graff Bay City and test drive a 2016 Chevrolet Tahoe. This SUV will give you a comfortable ride with maximum space for your next road trip.

    Chevrolet Hit a Home Run With MLB Sponsorship
    BAY CITY, Mich. – Swing batter batter, swing! Chevrolet just hit a home run with an MLB (Major League Baseball) sponsorship renewal. Since 2005 Chevy has partnered with the MLB and the Detroit Tigers for programs and showcasing their best-selling cars above Comerica Park.

Kids that participate can be a part of year-round local events, an inaugural Play Ball Weekend, and get unique experiences with Major and Minor League Baseball teams.

At Chevrolet, we appreciate the power of play and the profoundly positive effect it has on kids.  Baseball helps kids develop, connect with each other, and learn sportsmanship; and it ultimately brings families and communities together.”

    Through this partnership, Chevrolet created the Chevy Youth Baseball Program. Over the year the Chevy Youth Baseball Program has donated over 90,000 equipment packs, renovated 9,400 local parks, and has made a difference in over 5.2 million kid's lives across the nation.

    May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month - 05/12/2016

    May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month

    BAY CITY, Mich. – May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. At Graff Bay City, we put safety first. With the warmer weather here in Michigan, one thing all drivers need to be aware of on the road is motorcyclists. Too many accidents happen with motorcycles and usually the cyclist is the one left with more damage and injury. To avoid these accidents, we have a few tips for the drivers and the motorcyclists. It’s not a one-sided job; everyone plays an important role in staying safe on the road.

    Tips for Drivers:
    • If you’re following behind a motorcycle, leave a good distance between you and the bike. In case you need to slam on your brakes or swerve, you’ll have enough reaction time to do so and not hit the motorcyclist.
    • Always, always, always check your blind spots! This is the biggest mistake that drivers make. Since motorcyclists move much faster, and look much smaller in mirrors, it’s easy for you to miss them in your blind spots. Always double-check before switching lanes.
    • Think about the road conditions. If you’re on a road with potholes, railroad tracks, or even construction, chances are the motorcyclists will have to slow down a lot more than someone driving in a car. On roads like this, we recommend following even further behind.
    • Never share a lane with a motorcyclist. Even if you have a small car, it’s never safe to share a lane. In the case that you have to swerve or the motorcyclist needs to swerve, you may collide and that’s not good for wither of you. Give the motorcycle the space it needs to drive.

    Tips for Motorcyclists:
    • Wear the right gear to stay safe. This would be a helmet, closed toe shoes, pants, a motorcycle jacket, and gloves. Motorcycle gear can be a little heavier than you’d like it to be when riding, but it plays a key role in keeping you safe. In the case that you ever get into an accident, you’re less likely to get injured with the proper gear on.
    • Check the weather! We know Mother Nature can be a little unpredictable in Michigan, but checking the weather before you leave can help you avoid a rainstorm and bad driving weather.
    • Be aware of your surroundings and watch for road hazards. As a motorcyclist, you’re a lot harder to see than a normal sized car. Be aware of the other drivers around you. Also, make sure you watch for road hazards like potholes, train tracks, and construction.
    • Always use turn signals and headlights. This is a must for cars as well, but as a motorcyclist you want to make sure you’re as easy to notice as possible. Using your lights will let other drivers know where you’re going and help avoid any accidents. 

    May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, but every month you should be following these tips to stay safe on the road. Keeping you safe on the road is very important to us at Graff Bay City. Another way to ensure your safety is making sure your vehicle get the spring car care it needs this season. Take a look at our website to learn about the maintenance your tires, alignment, and car fluids need. Feel free to schedule a service appointment with our trained technicians online.

    Helpful Tips to Improve Your Vehicle’s Fuel Efficiency - 05/02/2016

    Helpful Tips to Improve Your Vehicle’s Fuel Efficiency

    BAY CITY, Mich. – A summer full of road trips and fun is ahead, and the easiest way to save money on your next vacation is having a fuel-efficient car. Graff Bay City has plenty of great Chevy models that will lower your weekly gas bill, but if you’re not in the market for a new car here are some helpful tips to improve your vehicle’s fuel efficiency.
    1. Check your tire pressure monthly. On the inside of your driver door you’ll find the recommended PSI for your tires. Under-inflated tires will burn through more fuel, so keeping them properly inflated will give you more miles per gallon.
    2. Use cruise control as much as possible. When you’re driving on the freeway for a long period of time, turn on your cruise control and save you fuel. Cruise control will give you more miles to the gallon.
    3. Run all your errands in one trip. By making one big trip instead of a several smaller ones you’ll be saving your gas overtime. It may not seem like it, but starting up your car and running back and forth each time will use up more fuel in the long run. 
    4. Consider your driving style. The way you drive will have a huge impact on how much gas you go through. For example, if you slam on your brakes or accelerate quickly you’re going to burn through more gas than someone who accelerates and brakes gradually.
    5. Get rid of unnecessary items. If you’re the type of person who carries everything in their car, you may want to reconsider. The heavier your car is, the less miles you’re getting per gallon. We recommend getting rid of the unnecessary items you have sitting in your trunk and back seat to improve your fuel efficiency.
    6. Give your engine some love. Routine oil changes and other maintenance will go a long way. By giving your engine the routine maintenance it needs, you vehicle will not only last longer, but it will also get the best MPG possible.
    Use these helpful tips to improve your vehicle’s fuel efficiency for great savings on gas this summer! If you haven’t taken a look at our Spring Car Care pages online, we highly recommend reading them over to make sure your vehicle is up-to-date on maintenance and able to perform its best this season. Learn about the maintenance your wipers, alignment, and tiresneed this spring and schedule an appointment with us online.

    If you’re looking for a more fuel-efficient ride this summer, take a look at our Model Overview page for details on each Chevy available at Graff Bay City. You can even shop before coming into the dealership by checking out our inventoryonline. Feel free to schedule a test drive with us by giving us a call at (989) 684-4411.

    The 2016 Chevrolet Cruze Offers It All - 04/22/2016

    The 2016 Chevrolet Cruze Offers It All

    BAY CITY, Mich. – The Cruze has been Chevrolet’s number one selling car since 2008, and this year’s model will be no different! The 2016 Chevrolet Cruze offers it all and more. It has new looks, awesome fuel efficiency, and technology to boot. Let's talk about what makes the 2016 Cruze so great:

    The 2016 Chevrolet Cruze offers it all with a standard direct-injected 1.4L Ecotec turbo engine. Thanks to a leaner and more defined body style, the Cruze is almost 250-lbs lighter for the L, LS, and LT trim levels. Drivers will also love saving gas with the stop/start technology the car uses.

    Drivers will enjoy the supreme comfort the Cruze offers. The features like leather heated seats, a heated steering wheel, and an acoustically designed quiet cabin make for an unmatched driving experience. Although the 2016 Chevrolet Cruze is considered a compact car, it’s still functional with 60/40 split-folding rear seats giving you plenty of cargo space.

    Other safety and technology features Cruze drivers will love include:
    • 4G LTE WiFi
    • Android Auto & Apple CarPlay
    • 10 standard airbags
    • Side Blind Zone Alert
    • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
    • Lane Departure Warning
    • Lane Keep Assist

    The Cruze is only getting bigger and better this fall with an all-new hatchback model, plus a diesel model making a return in 2017. If you’re looking for a sporty car that’s both compact and fun to drive, the 2016 Chevrolet Cruze offers it all and is the perfect option for you!

    Earth Day Tips To Help Save The Planet - 04/21/2016

    Earth Day Tips To Help Save The Planet

    BAY CITY, Mich.- On April 22nd, Earth Day, we'll be celebrating our amazing planet! Now more than ever, we're aware of our impact on the environment. The good news is that Chevy vehicles are reducing emissions and are becoming more fuel efficient! Today serves as a great reminder for us to do our part to preserve planet earth. Converting to a more fuel efficient Chevrolet vehicle is a great first step, be here are a few more Earth Day Tips To Help Save The Planet in your everyday life!

    Earth Day Tips To Help Save The Planet:
    1. Unplug electronic appliances. Even when they aren't turned on, electronic appliances that are plugged into a power source still draw energy, which means you're wasting energy.

    2. Shop the local farmer's market. Not only is the carbon impact of items from your farmer's market lower due to reduced transportation, but the food is almost always organic meaning no chemical pesticides have been used.

    3. Buy and use a lunch box. Think about how waste-free you can make your lunch by using reusable containers, a reusable water bottle, and reusable utensils.

    4. Install a new shower head. If you take a 10 minute shower every morning, you're likely using over 9,000 gallons of water per year. By switching to an EPA approved shower head you could save over 3,000 gallons of water per year!

    5. Fill up the dishwasher. If you have a modern dishwasher, you don't need to rinse dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. In addition, wait until the dishwasher is full before turning it on.

    6. Use the shades. Save money and energy by lowering your window shades. In the summer, they will keep the sun and heat out and in the winter they will keep cold drafts at a minimum.

    7. Switch to natural household products. Regular household cleaning products can be incredibly toxic and have actually been cited as the second largest air pollutants in major U.S. cities!

    8. Start a compost. You can greatly reduce the amount of household trash by composting.

    9. Dispose of old electronics the right way. When electronics are dumped in landfills and exposed to high heat, they release toxic chemicals into the air, water, and ground. So either sell them online, or take them to the proper location in your city to get rid of them.

    10. Walk instead of drive. If you're going a short distance, get some exercise and fresh air. With the weather being so nice out, you don't need to drive everywhere.

    11. Pay your bills online. Not only will this save on paper, but it's also more convenient for you!

    12. Stop using plastic or paper bags at the grocery store. Many grocery chains and stores offer reusable bags for a small price and unlimited use. Think about how much plastic you'll save in a month!

    If you're looking to reduce your carbon impact by switching to a more fuel efficient vehicle like the 2016 Chevrolet Sonic or the 2016 Chevrolet Spark. If you're satisfied with the vehicle you're already driving, take a look at our Spring Car Care pages. By performing routine maintenance on your vehicle, you'll get the best fuel-efficiency possible. Schedule your spring service appointment at Graff Bay City today.
