Kia Sportage: 2017 Must Test Drive Vehicle by Autotrader

KiaSportage

From: http://www.kianewscenter.com/News/ALL/kia-sportage-named-a-2017-must-test-drive-vehicle-by-autotrader/s/1c7c07fa-337e-426b-b0b6-041ccb2eb55c

Award-Winning, Fourth-Generation Sportage CUV Recognized for Sophisticated Design, Refined Premium Interior and Intelligent Packaging

  • The 2017 Sportage stands out in the hot-selling compact CUV segment
  • Cutting-edge design, engaging driving dynamics, advanced driver assistance systems, and premium materials take Sportage to the head of the class
IRVINE, Calif., March 24, 2017– The 2017 Kia Sportage has been named one of Autotrader’s 2017 Must Test Drive vehicles.  The prestigious consumer-focused program showcases the best new vehicles shoppers need to experience prior to making a purchase.  Award winners are selected by Autotrader’s editorial experts and have the potential to change the way a consumer perceives an entire segment or brand.
“Winning an Autotrader 2017 Must Test Drive Award is further testament to the transformation of the Kia brand and marks another accolade for the Sportage, our longest-running nameplate,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president, product planning Kia Motors America (KMA).  “Sportage balances world-class craftsmanship and outstanding design, while delivering a host of standard features at a low starting price.”
To be honored as a Must Test Drive award winner a vehicle must be of the current or next model-year and available to purchase at the time of the awards announcement, have a base price under $75,000 and offer a significant value.  Vehicles also must score no lower than a 3.5 on Autotrader’s five-point scale.
“The redesigned Kia Sportage is on our Must Test Drive list mainly because it’s so good at so many things.  The Sportage has a wide range of prices and options, has a unique look and comfortable interior. The 240 horsepower Sportage SX turbo is simply a blast to drive, something we were not expecting from a small SUV,” said Brian Moody, executive editor at Autotrader.
The 2017 Sportage, an IIHS Top Safety Pick + (when equipped with optional front crash prevention) wraps a contemporary design around a structure that is both stiffer and more spacious than ever before.  Advanced driver assistance technologies, significant suspension and steering improvements, and available intelligent AWD improve the Sportage’s driving dynamics while premium materials create a class-up experience.  The 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four found on the FWD SX Turbo makes 240 horsepower (237 on AWD models) and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, while LX and EX trims use a normally aspirated 2.4-liter engine that produces 181 horsepower and 175 lb.-ft. of torque.

Have you seen the 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE?

2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE

Article from: http://www.autoblog.com/2017/02/24/behold-the-2018-camaro-zl1-1le-the-most-hardcore-of-camaros/
By: Joel Stocksdale

 
The beastly Camaro ZL1 has been turned up to 11 with the newly introduced 1LE performance package. Like on the V6 and V8 Camaros, the 1LE option package for the ZL1 adds a bunch of track-ready goodies. And fittingly, the most powerful Camaro gets the most major transformation.On the outside, it’s immediately apparent what some of the changes are. The front fascia receives new canards and revised grilles, which are complemented by the enormous rear wing. That wing is made entirely of carbon fiber, has hollow supports, and provides 300 pounds of downforce at top speed. There is an X on each side of the wing endplates to further reinforce that this is the extreme Camaro (unlike the S10 Xtreme, which was nothing of the sort). The exposed carbon fiber also matches the standard exposed carbon fiber on the hood. New forged 19-inch wheels come with the package, and they’re fitted with the widest tires offered on a production Camaro: 305 mm wide tires in the front, and 325 mm tires at the back. The tires are Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires with a different compound than that of the versions found on the standard ZL1.

 
Under the skin, the ZL1 1LE uses the very same 650-horsepower supercharged V8 as normal variant. However, it’s only available with the 6-speed manual, which now has a revised sixth gear ratio. The suspension gets a major overhaul, though. At each corner are Multimatic spool valve shocks like those found on the Colorado ZR2 and previous Camaro Z/28. They feature springs with adjustable perches for changing ride height, and at the front, you can adjust the camber past negative 3 degrees. The springs themselves are stiffer, and the rear stabilizer bar is also adjustable. Oh, and the 1LE package reduces overall weight by 60 pounds, in part due to a lighter back seat.So how effective are all these changes? According to Chevrolet, the car managed a lap time that was 3 seconds faster around the company’s Milford test track than the normal ZL1 model. As for how much the new option package will cost, no one would say, but it will be available on 2018 Camaro ZL1 coupes starting this summer.

Chevrolet Cab Forward Trucks – Available At VanDevere

Cab Forward Trucks Available At VanDevere In Akron

 

Article From: http://media.chevrolet.com

CUSTOMERS SELECT CHEVROLET LOW CAB FORWARD FOR EXCELLENT CAPABILITY AND SERVICE

DETROIT – Harmony Outdoor Power Equipment in Auburn, Indiana, is the first small business to take delivery of the new Chevrolet Low Cab Forward truck.

Owner Don Harter said he replaced his Isuzu NPR with a Chevrolet Low Cab Forward partly because the lack of Isuzu dealerships in the area made it difficult for him to service his old truck.

“Now that Chevrolet is in the Low Cab Forward business, I can consolidate my business with one company for sales and service,” said Harter. “It makes our entire organization more efficient.”

Harter chose a diesel powertrain to pull a custom-designed bed with a ramp. The business uses the truck nearly every day to deliver heavy outdoor equipment to customers, and with more than 5,000 miles on the Low Cab Forward already, the investment is paying off.

“My drivers love how this truck maneuvers like a car and they also appreciate the quiet ride in the cab,” said Harter. “We are already seeing significantly improved fuel economy with the new Chevrolet Low Cab Forward, which makes it a great choice from a financial perspective.”

The Chevrolet Low Cab Forward with a diesel engine starts at $48,375 and the gasoline engine version starts at $40,900. Low Cab Forward suggested MSRPs include a destination charge but exclude tax, title, license and dealer fees. Harter ordered his Chevrolet from Summit City Chevrolet, one of more than 250 Chevrolet dealerships across the country that sell and service Low Cab Forward trucks.

“Our dealers have gone through rigorous sales and service training to ensure they can help customers pick the right truck, the right financing and upfit for their business,” said John Schwegman, director of commercial product, General Motors Fleet. “Our sales and service support doesn’t end at the dealership. We support our customers throughout the life cycle of the vehicle with a dedicated team of 42 product specialists at our Fleet Action Center. They are consultants and problem-solvers focused exclusively on small-business owners and fleet managers.”

Harter took advantage of a new GM Financial commercial lease product called Right TRAC that can lower monthly payments with flexible residuals and no excess mileage and wear-and-tear charges.

“Any time we can save money on an investment, we’re going to do it,” said Harter. “The Right TRAC lease option went a long way in helping us make our decision to switch to Chevrolet for the Low Cab Forward.”
