The Top 3 Reasons Why The 2011 Chevrolet Traverse is a Super High-Tech Crossover!

2011 Chevrolet Traverse

Compared to a lot of similar vehicles out there, I am really pumped up about the high-tech features offered with the 2011 Chevrolet Traverse.

1.) The advanced and fuel efficient Chevrolet transmission in this crossover uses a sixth gear to make the magic happen. That’s the reason why the 2011 Chevrolet Traverse gets an amazing 24 MPG without resorting to expensive hybrid technology.

2.) The advanced StabiliTrak electronic stability control system in the 2011 Chevrolet Traverse is on the cutting edge of what it does. This system is able to control individual brakes on the vehicle when it is losing traction on the road. If you’re like me, you want StabiliTrak because you want to be as safe as you possibly can on the road. With this system you won’t have to be scared of losing control over your vehicle in bad conditions. StabiliTrak will be there for you.

3.) The 2011 Chevrolet Traverse incorporates a high tech side curtain air bag system. I really like this system because it protects passengers no matter which row they are on. In some vehicles, the front passengers have much better safety than the back seat passengers, and I really don’t like that.

Need More From Your Car? Take a look at the Chevy Aveo Hatchback

2011 Chevrolet Aveo Sedan

Here’s the question I have for you. Do you need more from your car? Are you tired of paying too much for gas, and on top of that, just barely making the payments on your car? Well if you’re like me and need a better deal than that, you should look into the Chevy Aveo Hatchback. When it comes to good deals and smart choices, this car should be on the top of your list. As far as compact cars go, the Aveo Hatchback is one of the best.

In these hard times, the thing we need more of is efficiency. When it comes to being efficient, the Aveo Hatchback gets it done. Not only does the Aveo Hatchback get 35 miles per gallon on the highway, it also starts at a super affordable price. In fact, the price is the best part about the car. It starts at only $12,115, which is almost half of what most cars cost. I would dare to say that the Aveo Hatchback is one of the most efficient and cost effective cars in America.

Another thought to think about when considering a vehicle, especially a compact car, is its safety. Chevy goes out of its way to ensure that the Aveo Hatchback is as safe as possible. With 5 standard airbags and inclusions from OnStar, the Aveo does not lack in safety features. Chevy adds OnStar’s Automatic Crash Response and Emergency Services in case of emergencies, giving you the security you need in a compact car!

For more information on the Aveo Hatchback, stop by Parks Chevrolet Charlotte at 6441 North Tryon Street, Charlotte, NC 28213  today and speak with a representative!

The Top 3 Reasons Why Owning the 2011 Chevrolet Volt is Better Than Owning an Internal Combustion Vehicle

2011 Chevrolet Volt

In my opinion it is better to own a 2011 Chevrolet Volt than any sort of internal combustion vehicle. The reasons are many, but I think some of them really stand out. You may not realize that buying one results in a tax credit and that it’s really cheap to drive.

1.) It really amazes me that the estimated cost of the electricity needed to power the Volt for a day’s commute is only $1.50. Today, that’s less than half the cost of a gallon of gas. I don’t think anyone can rely on the gas prices these days.

2.) Driving the 2011 Chevrolet Volt is as good for the environment as operating a vehicle can be. How good it is for the environment depends on how the electricity powering it was generated. It really intrigues me that the Volt can become more and more efficient as renewable and clean energies are used more often in the future.

3.) The Volt is even more quiet than many highly insulated luxury cars. It excites me that other non-electric vehicles simply can’t compete with the luxury of quiet that the Volt offers. It’s important to note that on the occasion when the Volt does burn gasoline, there is some noise from that.

The Top 3 Things That Make the Chevrolet Traverse One of the Most Comfortable Crossovers on the Market!

2011 Chevrolet Traverse

I personally believe that the 2011 Chevrolet Traverse is a crossover that utilizes cunning design and technological innovation to ensure the comfort of all of its passengers. When you sit down in the Chevy Traverse I really think that you won’t want to get out, whether you sit in the driver’s seat or the middle of the third row. It doesn’t matter, the Chevy Traverse is comfortable everywhere!

1.) This crossover can fit eight passengers into its sleek design, and the leg room and comfort offered in its third row can’t be beat. I could fall asleep sitting in that plush third row!

2.) I really like the fact that the 2011 Chevrolet Traverse has six speeds, not five like some vehicles. To me, the best part of this is how the Traverse can accelerate very smoothly even when merging onto the highway. The 24 EPA Estimated MPG on the highway this helps afford doesn’t hurt the wallet either.

3.) When it comes to technology, I believe that the Chevy Traverse doesn’t lack much of anything that a person might want in a vehicle. It offers navigation systems, OnStar protection, and premium satellite radio. If you buy a 2011 Chevrolet Traverse, you’ll be cruising in style and be safe to boot!

The Top 4 Things That You Might Not Realize About the 2011 Chevrolet Volt

2011 Chevrolet Volt

I think the 2011 Chevrolet Volt offers several intriguing features most people aren’t aware of. With a vehicle as revolutionary as the Volt, there’s simply a lot to take in. There are a lot of contributing factors that help make this vehicle great.

1.) While the 2011 Chevrolet Volt has a ton of features that make it efficient under the hood and inside the cabin, I don’t think that the exterior should be forgotten. This vehicle incorporates a closed grille design to make it more aerodynamic and ultimately more fuel efficient. I also like the fact that Chevrolet went with Goodyear Fuel Max tires on the Volt.

2.) I think that it’s important to take note of how the Chevy Volt does not ignore safety. With eight air bags and an amazing 5 year OnStar subscription standard, I think that the Volt’s safety features are second to none.

3.) I’m really amazed by how quickly the Volt can charge up compared to the electric vehicles of the past. With special hardware the Volt can go from 0% to 100% in 4 hours. Without special hardware, I think that it still makes a fair showing at 10 hours.

4.) I think that the efficiency feedback offered by the 2011 Chevrolet Volt is a nice touch. Even the most efficient vehicle can get bad mileage if the driver is careless. The 2011 Chevy Volt offers a gentle reminder to be efficient with its visual feedback system.

Which Chevrolet vehicle has got you covered

2011 Chevrolet Express

Chevrolet has been designing and producing full-sized vans for years that have lasted through construction work, the shuttle drives, and all the spilled foods from organized event trips. Chevrolet’s vans are built to last, and that is just what they do. Since they are built to last, several amenities are built in as well to make this a safer and more comfortable ride. Extras, such as All-Wheel Drive allow for maximum grip on the road in all conditions, whether its the changes in the seasons, hauling cargo or pulling trailers. All-Wheel Drive is just one of several extras that Chevrolet has compared to the Ford E-Series and the Mercedes Sprinter. Along with All-Wheel Drive, the Chevrolet Express van has ABS on all four wheels to provide excellent stopping power, even when you have large amounts of cargo. Even if the amount that you are towing is extremely heavy, don’t worry about it. The Express has Auto Grade Braking, which downshifts to help slow the van when you apply the brakes when going down long and steep hills.

When pulling a trailer to the worksite, or whatever the case may be, drive in confidence with the Express’ Trailer Sway Control. This works together with the Stabilitrak Control System by sensing the trailer swaying and automatically applies the vehicle’s brakes and reduces engine power to help to create equilibrium during the trip. Once you’ve arrived to the jobsite, take advantage of the Access Plus Package, which has pop up hatches on the side of the van to store your tools and grab them with ease, keeping you organized and ready to roll!

3 Reasons Why I Want To Buy A Chevrolet Cruze

2011 Chevrolet Cruze

The number one reason why I want a Chevrolet Cruze is because of the fuel efficiency that it offers, without it being the size of a toy car. The Cruze Eco has the best highway gas engine that is sold in the United States. Coming in at an astonishing 42 miles to the gallon, the Cruze will take you farther than you ever expected! If you do the math, saying you still get good gas mileage of 30 mpg with a 15 gallon tank, the Cruze Eco will take you almost an extra 200 miles per tank. That’s almost $30 dollars you save every trip to the gas station!

A second reason why I want to buy a Cruze is because of the interior style and features. Even though the Cruze is starting at just over $15,000, the interior makes you feel as if you paid a lot more! A blue backlit dashboard and a Navigation system, along with other features seem to give it the edge over other vehicles in its class. Standard USB/AUX hook ups, Bluetooth, and OnStar are just a few of the extras!

There are many other reasons about the car that I could mention if I had time, but I think the third reason has got to be the Chevy Carbon Reduction project. Chevy is not only making Cars like the Cruze that are absolutely phenomenal on reducing emissions, increasing gas mileage, and helping out our planet, but they do something even more! Chevy has announced that they plan to reduce the total CO2 emissions over the next few years by 8 million metric tons.  This is an assertive goal that needs our support.

2011 Chevrolet Malibu

Chevrolet has yet again, combined fuel efficiency, style, performance and technology of the modern age to meet the world’s expectations. The all-new 2013 Malibu will certainly meet your expectations.

Specific aspects of the new Malibu include the revolutionary eAssist. eAssist is a state-of-the-art system, that combines power that has been stored in a 115V lithium-ion battery, as well as a 14kW generator, that provides an electrical boost, which decreases the use of fuel and saves you more cash! The elegant design of the Malibu has also been revamped. A design similar to the Camaro and the Corvette has been placed within this new mid-sized sedan, brining a new modern look to this concept car. From the seats to the look of the control panel, the Malibu truly is a sedan with an attitude of a sports car. Not only will you be able to see and feel the new design of the Malibu, you will hear it when you slip inside and find the calmness and quietness of this ride. The acoustic laminated glass and triple door seals help keep outside noise out.

The Malibu has a new bearing when it comes to taking on the road. With a wider base, the Malibu allows for greater control for the driver that will make a lasting impression on both the owner and the drivers being passed! According to Chevrolet, after extensive driving on different terrains, this new mid-sized sedan will set a standard never seen before in its class, making that one more reason you need to look into this car as a great investment!

How Does Chevrolet Celebrate Its 100th Birthday?

2012 CorvetteMany people usually just get a cake, blow out some candles, and have a nice relaxing time with family and friends.  If they’re lucky they might also get a couple of gifts. Chevrolet is a company that doesn’t follow the trend of “most people.” The reason they persevere and continue to meet the expectations for consumers is because they do it big, and they do it right. So how do they do it? By making a great American sports car to celebrate the next century.

Chevrolet has made a Centennial Edition Corvette, which will be available in the summer of 2011. The Centennial Edition Corvette has a Carbon Flash Metallic exterior, 20” black wheels with a red stripe and red brake calipers with a ZR1 spoiler. I’m telling you, this design is so sleek that it will break every neck of bystanders because they won’t be able to take their eyes off of it!  A front bumper and stylish hood scoop with satin black exterior graphics makes this ‘Vette pop! On the inside you will find a heart-melting Ebony leather-wrapped instrument panel and door panels. The ‘Vette’s leather interior is stitched in red, including the instrument panel, doors, steering wheel, seats, and the shifter. Between the red stitching and satin black interior trim, the interior will satisfy your eyes like never before.

The 2012 Corvette isn’t lacking in technology either. In the center of the dash you will find a full color navigation system, combining technology with muscle, making the 2012 Centennial Corvette one of the hottest cars about to be released to the public!
