What makes the Chevy Suburban a reliable vehicle?

There are a few things that make the Chevy Suburban an all around reliable vehicle. First off, the 2011 Chevrolet Suburban has plenty of seating for the whole family, a whole large family. The Suburban can seat up to eight occupants comfortably at once. The front passenger and driver seats have heated and cooled 12 way power bucket seats to find the perfect seating position.

Secondly, the 2011 Suburban has the most cargo space in its class with up to 137.4 cu. ft. of room. This much space makes loading up for that vacation or extended trip a breeze. The next feature that makes the Suburban a reliable vehicle is the engine that lies under its hood. The Suburban comes equipped with a 5.3L V8 engine that can produce up to 320 horsepower and 335 Ibs.-ft. of torque so you can have the extra bit of power whenever you may need it.

Lastly, the Suburban has sequential fuel injection which helps manage the SUV’s fuel consumption. The sequential fuel injection will limit fuel while in lower RPMs, while also allowing you a little bit of extra power whenever the occasion may arise. As far as gas mileage is concerned, the 2011 Suburban gets up to 21 miles to the gallon on the highway.

What makes the 2011 Cruze a safer vehicle to travel in?

2011 Chevrolet Cruze

Safety is a huge concern to drivers, passengers, and even designers and makers of all vehicles. You never know when an accident will take place. Because safety is such an important and vital aspect of traveling in a vehicle, Chevrolet always looks to build on top of what they have already developed, as far as safety is concerned.

The all new Chevy Cruze is one such vehicle that Chevy has dedicated much time and energy to make it a safer vehicle for you and your family. The Chevy Cruze has standard driver and front passenger side air bags that deploy at the moment of impact. The braking on the Cruze consists of front disc/rear brakes and 4 wheel anti-lock brakes.

Another great safety feature in the Cruze is the OnStar Security System. With the OnStar Security System you can receive directions to your destination along with hands free calling and vehicle diagnostics. In the case of an accident OnStar has an Automatic Crash Response feature and an Emergency Service feature. If your vehicle is ever stolen, OnStar can even help locate your vehicle with the Stolen Vehicle Assistance.

One of the best safety features is a feature that helps accidents from occurring in the first place. With the StabiliTrak Electronic Stability Control System, the Cruze’s direction can be monitored, and if the Cruze starts to skid or slide, the StabiliTrak System can help correct the path of the Cruze.

For more information on the Chevrolet Cruze, please call (888) 452-2780 or stop by Parks Chevrolet at the Lake (Huntersville) to test drive one today!

What makes the Camaro Coupe a fun car to drive?

A lot of us are fascinated with high performance sports cars and muscle cars. There is just something about the rumble of an engine after you rev it up that gets your blood pumping. It seems as though it is ingrained in us to push the limits in a vehicle to see what it is made of. It is built into us to take in every dead stop acceleration with a smile on our face and our hands firmly on the steering wheel.

When it comes to the 2011 Camaro Coupe, our reaction to its performance is no different. The Camaro Coupe is outfitted with a 3.6L V6 engine that can produce up to 312 horsepower and can push out 278 Ibs.-ft. of torque on the dime. For those of you who love to hit the gears, drop the clutch and go, you will be pleased to know that the Camaro Coupe has a six speed manual transmission for you to enjoy the road with. Also the Camaro Coupe has rear wheel drive to give you the needed grip and power you want when you press on the gas pedal.

The Camaro Coupe offers up a smooth ride, great handling and control thanks to the Multi-Link Strut front suspension and 4.5 Link Independent rear suspension.

The Top 3 Ways the 2011 Chevrolet Volt is Efficient That You Might Not Expect

2011 Chevrolet Volt

I really like the myriad of ways that the 2011 Chevrolet Volt is efficient. Some of the ways that it is efficient are more obvious than others, however. It’s easy to see that electricity is cheaper than gasoline and that electricity is therefore more economically feasible for a vehicle. It’s also cool to think about how the Volt can become more efficient as the electricity being generated is created more efficiently.  Chevrolet has truly designed a vehicle that doesn’t only use a cheaper type of energy but uses less of that energy as well.

1.) Typically heated seats are thought of as a luxurious accessory, but Chevy had an entirely different line of thinking in mind with the Volt’s heated seats. Heating the air in a vehicle is an inefficient way to heat the passengers of the vehicle.

2.) The 2011 Chevrolet Volt takes into account a few variables when deciding the time to charge up. I think that it’s really neat that you can tell the Volt what utility rates are associated with certain times of the day. This information, combined with your schedule, results in the Volt charging at the best off peak hours whenever it won’t be disruptive.

3.) This electric car is leading the charge with an efficient Bose sound system. I find it really interesting that this system is able to power off very quickly in order to save energy.

Want More Versatility? Check out the 2011 Chevy Equinox!

2011 Chevrolet Equinox

In today’s economy, we need our vehicles to do more. With skyrocketing gas prices, economic crisis, and a pile of debt, the one thing we shouldn’t have to worry about is our vehicles guzzling the rest of our money. So what about versatility? What about a car that gives you space, reliability, and efficiency? I think that Chevy has found the answer with the 2011 Equinox.

Let’s start with the gas mileage. The Equinox gets an amazing 32 miles per gallon on the highway! I drive a compact car that gets a little bit less than that, and the Equinox is twice the size of my car! The efficiency doesn’t stop there. The Equinox is also very affordable. It starts at only $22,995, which is good considering the size and economy of the vehicle you’re getting. The Honda CRV and even the Ford Escape Hybrid can’t compete with this kind of gas mileage and affordability!

The Equinox also has the technology fitted for a versatile lifestyle. Chevy includes Wi-Fi by Autonet Mobile for the ability to use the Equinox as a Wi-Fi hotspot. This gives you the ability to surf the web or even watch streaming videos while on the road! Roadtrips would become a cinch with this added feature!

For more information on the Chevy Equinox, stop by Parks Chevrolet at the Lake (Huntersville) at 15235 Statesville Road, Huntersville, NC 28078 today and speak with a representative about its versatility, or test drive it for yourself!

The Top 5 Safety Technologies That Are Built Into the 2011 Chevrolet Traverse!

2011 Chevrolet TraverseI really think that the 2011 Chevrolet Traverse is not only a super safe crossover, it’s a super safe vehicle. From the basic stuff like air bags all the way to cutting edge features, the Chevy Traverse has the bases covered.

1.) I really like the blind spot mirrors on the Chevy Traverse. It seems like such a simple solution, but many new vehicles still don’t have them. The blind spot mirrors on the 2011 Chevrolet Traverse are little mirrors that are built into the upper left side of both the right and left hand side mirrors. They aim for the blind spots that regular mirrors miss.

2.) The Chevy Traverse has a rear view camera for when you back up, and an ultrasonic parking assist that gives you an audio alert if you’re close to hitting anything.

3.) This crossover has six standard air bags, and one thing I really like is that it has side curtain air bags that protect passengers seated on all three rows.

4.) The 2011 Chevrolet Traverse has StabiliTrak Electronic Stability Control, which allows your vehicle to brake specific wheels to help you keep traction in tough conditions.

5.) I like that this vehicle includes OnStar, which can contact emergency services for you if you’re in a crash or have a medical problem.

The Top 3 Things That Make the 2011 Chevrolet Volt Super Easy to Own!

2011 Chevrolet Volt

I believe that the new 2011 Chevrolet Volt has made it super cool and fun to own an electric vehicle. I don’t want people to think that it’s difficult or in any way painful to own an electric car. Truth be told, I think it’s more fun to drive the Chevy Volt than a vehicle that uses gasoline primarily!

1.) The Volt has a lot of awesome features packed into its mobile application, but the feature that I love the most is the charging alert. You can set it so that if you forget to plug your Volt in, it will send you a text message. At first you might be thinking that an electric car is complicated, but I think that the Volt’s features make it easy and fun.

2.) I love how the Volt knows when to charge so that the electricity is as cheap as possible. All you have to do is put in your price schedule and when you need to use your car and the Volt figures out the rest.

3.) Some electric cars might make you worry about running out of power on the road, but I believe that the Volt is nothing like that at all. The Volt carries a reserve tank of gasoline that it can convert into electricity if you get low on power.

The 2013 Chevy Malibu has been revealed

2013 Chevrolet MalibuAfter much waiting and some tease pictures for the public, the all new 2013 Chevrolet Malibu was recently revealed at the New York Auto Show in late April. Now if you happened to catch a glimpse of this new ride before hand, you probably saw it on a video that showed the Malibu as a hologram. The video still left a lot to the imagination, and it made the public and critics hungrier to see it in person. So I guess you could say job accomplished for building anticipation. It is not until the 2013 Malibu starts rolling off the line and onto the streets, that Chevy will be able to really say “Job Well Done.”

Chevy seems confident in their new ride thanks in part to the eAssist light electrification technology in the Malibu which gives it up to 26 miles to the gallon in the city and 38 miles to the gallon on the highway. The eAssist system uses a state of the art lithium-ion battery along with an electric motor that helps assist in the braking and with the acceleration of the Malibu as well. To top it off, the battery is not oversized and only weighs 65 pounds. With gas prices the way they are, it would be nice to see this vehicle on the road sooner rather than later.

So what do you think of Chevy’s new fuel efficient ride?

For more information on the 2013 Chevy Malibu, please call (888) 452-2780 or stop by Parks Chevrolet at the Lake (Huntersville) today!
