Equipped with a 21-mile increase over previous model years, the 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV will offer a remarkable EPA-estimated 259 miles of driving range on a full charge. To achieve this bar-raising distance, the battery team at Chevrolet improved the energy of the cell electrodes by making small but impactful changes to the cell chemistry.

Great range — now even more — is the foundation of the Bolt EV’s success . . . the vehicle delivers an exceptional driving experience.

Don’t Forget Your Seat Belt!

boy-car-child-1266014

Chevrolet is taking direct aim at the rising car crash related deaths amongst teens with their latest addition to the Teen Driver system: Buckle to Drive. Available through Teen Driver mode, Buckle to Drive builds upon the Chevrolet mission to help teen drivers stay safe on the road.

Did you know that buckling your seat belt is the number one action drivers can take to protect themselves in the crash? Teens continue to have the lowest rates of seat belt use.

An industry first, Buckle to Drive reminds young drivers to buckle up before driving. Now a standard feature in the 2020 Traverse, Buckle to Drive prevents the driver home shifting out of “PARK” if the driver’s seat belt is not buckled.

“Buckle to Drive is Chevrolet’s latest feature designed to encourage young drivers to develop safe driving habits right from the start . . . Buckle to Drive is embedded in Chevrolet’s Teen Driver system and is aimed at helping remind teens to buckle up every time they get behind the wheel.” – Tricia Morrow, Chevrolet safety engineer

What is Teen Driver mode?

  • Teen Driver offers an industry-first in-vehicle report card that helps encourage safe driving habits and provides a way for parents and teens to discuss safe driving habits.
  • When active, Teen Driver mode automatically mutes the radio until the driver and front passenger seat belts are fastened.
  • Parents can select a speed warning that, if exceeded, activates a visual and audible warning.
  • Teen Driver mode is now available on the 2020 Traverse, Malibu and Colorado.

Want to learn more about Teen Driver mode and Buckle to Drive? Our expert Chevrolet sales team would be happy to answer all of your questions.

Prepare for Winter: Chevrolet Maintenance Tips

unnamed

We have cooler, sunny days in the forecast for the week ahead, but it’s never too early to prepare for the arrival of winter weather. Not only should we be altering our driving habits to accommodate for the change in road conditions, but we should also arrange with a local mechanic to complete maintenance that will ensure the top performance of our Chevrolet vehicle(s) all season long.

Keep your Chevrolet clean

Snow, salt and ice can build up quickly when you’re on the road, leading to poor visibility and possible corrosion on your Chevrolet. Rid your vehicle of hazardous debris with frequent visits to your local car wash or our J.B.A. service department; your Chevrolet will thank you.

Monitor all vehicle fluids & check your oil!

As colder temperatures arrive, the oil in your Chevrolet can begin to thicken making it harder for your vehicle to start and perform to the best of its ability. With the winter season approaching, it’s a good time to start monitoring the levels of all fluids in your vehicle. If you’re unsure about your Chevrolet fluid levels, our technicians are here to help! You can schedule your service appointment online or contact us directly: 410-766-6300.

2018-Chevrolet-Equinox-Premier-Snow-Tree-Shopping

How’s your battery?

The battery of your Chevrolet will take a serious beating with the arrival of colder temperatures. In fact, the change in temperature can decrease the charge of your vehicle battery even if it’s new. To avoid getting stuck on the side of the road in bad weather, ensure that a mechanic takes a close look at the condition of your Chevrolet battery.

Keep the tank full

This tip might seem obvious, but it’s worth mentioning. Fill up your gas tank when you have a chance. Not only will this decrease the likelihood of you running out of gas in poor winter weather, but it will also decrease the chances of your gas line freezing.

Do you have your winter tires?

When outside temperatures dip below 44°F, it’s important that you change over to your winter tires. The rubber on all-season tires can harden in cold temperatures which will cause your vehicle to lose traction on snow and ice covered roads. Winter tires, however, remain flexible which allows the rubber to grip the road.

Need help choosing the right winter tires for your vehicle? We’re here to help! Visit our website or contact our service department: 410-766-6300.

All-new 2019 Chevrolet Blazer vs. the 2019 Ford Edge

 

ChevyBlazerReveal07

Arriving in Chevrolet dealerships across the U.S. in early 2019, the all-new Blazer is a versatile and stylish addition to the Chevrolet utility vehicle lineup. Sculpted on the inside and out, the 2019 Blazer comes equipped with a 3.6L engine (RS & Premier models) and available All-Wheel Drive making it the perfect sporty SUV for all of your adventures.

MotorTrend recently shared an article (“Refreshing or Revolting: 2019 Chevrolet Blazer vs. Ford Edge“) which inspired us to compare the all-new Chevrolet Blazer to its SUV segment competitor: the 2019 Ford Edge.

APPEARANCE

When it comes to first impressions, the Chevrolet Blazer is both striking and sleek. Exterior design was the main focus for the Blazer and it sets new standards for how SUVs should look. Buyers of the 2019 Blazer can choose between 20-inch and 21-inch wheels, as well as a variety of chrome accents on the Premier model.

MotorTrend notes that Chevrolet “took a bolder approach” when designing the Blazer with the grille extending “. . . nearly the entire length of the car’s front fascia . . ..” While still a good looking SUV on the outside, the 2019 Ford Edge has a more conventional look that buyers have become accustomed to in this particular segment.

INTERIOR FEATURES

Buyers of the all-new Chevrolet Blazer can look forward to a suite of the latest and greatest in on-the-road technology features. Equipped with a Chevrolet-first Cargo Management System that lets buyers customize their cargo space, the Blazer has a spacious and intuitive interior that offers a fantastic combination of style, versatility and comfort.

The 2019 Edge comes equipped with a more “structured” interior and center console with an embedded touchscreen. One cool feature that the Ford Edge does have in comparison to the Blazer is a Rotary e-Shifter vs. a conventional gear shifter which opens up space for cupholders, smart storage and USB ports.
