Camaro Gears Up For The Battle Against The Mustang - 04/10/2015
BAY CITY, Mich. – Woah! Shots fired as the Camaro gears up for battle against the Mustang. The 2016 Camaro isn’t even going to be revealed until May 16th on Belle Isle, but that doesn’t stop the back and forth between Ford and Chevy in regards to the Camaro vs. the Mustang. Everyone in the automobile community is eager to see what the next-gen Camaro brings to the table, and how it stacks up against its newly revised rival, the Ford Mustang.
Mark Reuss, GM’s President, stated to Fox News; “I’m very confident. Very confident,” in regards to how the new Camaro will compete with the new Mustang. Reuss also explained that he had driven both cars back to back the week prior, and the enhancements left him quite content that Chevy is well equipped in the pony car wars.Camaro gears up for the battle against the Mustang, and from what we know now the latest Camaro switched from a full-sized Holden developed Zeta platform to the Alpha platform that the Cadillac CTS and ATS ride on. GM has also opted to infuse more aluminum into the next-gen Camaro, resulting in the new model being 200 pounds lighter.
The all-new 2016 Camaro is expected to bring in a 6.2 liter V8, the same engine that powers the Corvette Stingray. The Camaro will hit with 460 horsepower while, the current Mustang’s 5.0-liter V-8 puts out 435 horsepower. It will definitely be the battle of American muscle once the new Camaro comes out, and we CANNOT wait to see it!
BAY CITY, Mich. – Unless you live under a rock, you may have noticed that Major League Baseball opened up its 2015 season this past Monday. Opening Day is a major holiday here in Michigan, with thousands of people heading to downtown Detroit to watch the Tigers open up, what most hope to be, a successful season with a run at the World Series Championship. Chevy gets ready for baseball season and if you have ever been to Comerica Park or have watched the games on TV, you might have noticed the two Chevy vehicles perched atop the Chevy Fountain in centerfield. Every year, Chevy chooses select vehicles from its new lineup to display throughout the season.Chevrolet has sponsored the fountain for the past six seasons, and this year a Velocity Yellow Corvette Z06 and a special Midnight Edition Silverado grace the walls of the centerfield fountain.
“As the Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball, what better way could Chevrolet show our love of the game than by giving our vehicles a bird’s eye view of our hometown team?” said Paul Edwards, Chevy’s VP of Marketing. Chevy gets ready for baseball season every year by putting two new Chevy models atop the fountain, which features a number of intricate and entertaining displays and the sound of a growling tiger that can be heard with each Detroit home run.
As you can imagine, it takes a bit of creativity to get the two models up onto the fountain, especially when it’s done in the rain. It takes crewmembers three hours to get each vehicle into the best position, using cranes and a very strategic plan. So, next time you make your way down to see the Tigers play some ball, or happen to catch an inning or two on TV, pay close attention to the two Chevys mounted on the centerfield wall, cheering on the home team to drive in those centerfield homeruns!
2016 Chevy Spark Is Debuting A More Mature Look - 04/03/2015
BAY CITY, Mich. – You know that awkward few years that all human beings go through called “puberty”? Well guess what, tons of car models go through those same growing pains until they find that “just right” design, and that has happened with the 2016 Chevy Spark. The 2016 Chevy Spark is debuting a more maturelook at the New York City Auto Show and it is causing a few heads to turn! With a longer wheelbase and lower roof, the completely redesigned 2016 Chevrolet Spark casts aside the gawky, tall stance for a more adult profile.
The new model looks sleeker and more refined, and gives drivers and passengers more headroom by lowering the seats. Speaking of seats, new seat designs find their way into the new Chevy Spark with high-density foam, promising an improved comfort all around.
The 2016 Chevy Spark is debuting a more mature look, and that extends to a bigger, 1.4-liter engine that packs in an extra 14 horsepower to bring the total up to 98. The most important feature for any small car is safety however, and the Spark will offer the latest in active safety equipment, such as forward-collision alert, lane departure warning, and blind-spot warning.
These great updates and changes have really brought the 2016 Chevy Spark into the forefront of newly updated small cars. The new model goes on sale late this year, and we are beyond excited to see it!

BAY CITY, Mich. – We have previously blogged about the new 2016 Chevy Malibu’s 45 m.p.g and Teen Driver system, and yesterday the 2016 Chevy Malibu stole the show at the New York Auto Show when it was FINALLY revealed to the public. Mark Reuss, executive VP of global product development, purchasing, and supply chain management at GM states that “This car couldn’t just be competitive. In fact, I hate the word. This car had to win” and win indeed.
The 2016 Chevy Malibu stole the show with its newly updated spacious interior, which features more legroom and a completely updated and refurbished dashboard design. The vehicle is about 300 pounds lighter, which improves the new Malibu’s fuel economy by 8% over the previous Malibu model.
The new Malibu is also smarter than the previous model, which is all thanks to the available OnStar 4G LTE in-vehicle connectivity. These active safety alert features include the new Teen Driver system, as well as an adaptive cruise control and automatic parking assist. Wireless phone charging is also available on LT and Hybrid, and comes standard on Premier.
Chevy has improved the Malibu all in all where it was needed the most, cabin space, and added safety features and comfort that thrusts the sedan into the gauntlet of the “family” oriented car sales battle.

The next-generation Chevy Malibu Hybrid will have at least a 45 m.p.g in combined city and highway driving, thus making it one of THE MOST fuel-efficient mid-size sedans available on the market when it goes on sale in the spring of 2016.
Chevrolet’s electrified lineup will also include the next-generation 2016 Chevy Volt, and General Motors has future plans to make a completely all-electric car based on the Volt concept. GM will reveal the 2016 Malibu next week during the New York auto show. The 2016 Chevy Malibu hybrid will get 45 m.p.g and GM is using this new fuel-efficient technology to spur the Malibu and the Volt towards exceeding the Ford Fusion, Toyota Camry, and the Hyundai Sonata hybrids.
Chevrolet is truly raising the bar with the new 2016 Malibu and “The introduction of a hybrid versions of the Malibu comes at no surprise…” according to Jack Nerad, market analyst at Kelley Blue Book. He also states that, “These days, the midsize sedan segment is littered with hybrid versions as manufacturers seek to meet federal corporate average fuel economy standards” These standards will become much more severe in the coming years, which is forcing automotive companies to come up with new hybrid concepts.

A new level of comfort has also been added to the seating within new model; “you sit in them, not on them”. The third row of the 2015 Chevy Tahoe is also a lot simpler to use, as it folds evenly into the floor instead of twisting to the sides of the cargo area, like earlier models.
The new 2015 Chevy Tahoe ramps up the sophistication, and the improvements do not end with the interior of the vehicle; the exterior design of the Tahoe is sculpted with precision and is very distinguished.

Work towards your new wake up time.
Good things take time, so set your goal and work towards it! If you want to start waking up at 6:30am instead of 7:30am, set your alarm back in 15-minute increments until you reach your newly desired wake up time.
A workout first thing in the morning does wonders for your metabolism and gives you a great boost of energy that lasts throughout the day. Getting in a sweat sesh first thing in the morning will also give you extra endorphins that will keep you smiling all day long.

2016 Chevrolet Equinox is First Vehicle to Adopt Corvette Design Cues - 02/18/2015
BAY CITY, Mich. – So you may have heard that Chevrolet recently debuted an updated version of the Equinox crossover. But do you remember back when the automaker announced that subtle design inspirations from the halo C7 Corvette Stingray would be integrated into the new 2016 Chevy lineup? Well, it's happening people!! The 2016 Chevrolet Equinox is the first vehicle to adopt Corvette design cues!
Riding on the success of the impressive new Corvette, Chevrolet has begun influencing the design of the brand's new lineup, beginning with adaptations of the vehicle’s tail lamps. It is these new tail lamps that inspire the personality of the updated 2016 Chevrolet Equinox! What's so great about these new tail lamps are the aura and character they bring to the Equinox crossover. These lamps are key to the start of Chevy's new persona, and have been coined the "Chevy-signature dual-element."
The 2016 Chevrolet Equinox is the first vehicle to adopt Corvette design cues, and in more than just its taillights. An aggressive-styled hood is another addition to the new Equinox that will also begin to appear on several other bowtie models. Ed Welburn of General Motors said that the upcoming Chevy Malibu and Cruze will be the next to receive the subtle changes that link back to the C7 Corvette design.
