Cab Forward Trucks Available At VanDevere In Akron

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.”

Kia Soul: Named One Of Kelley Blue Book’s Coolest Cars Under $10,000

Kia Motors America announces record July sales



IRVINE, Calif., May 18, 2015 – Kia Motors America’s (KMA) popular urban hatchback, the 2015 Soul, is one of the 10 Coolest Cars Under $18,000 in 2015, according to Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com.  This year marks the fourth consecutive time Soul has been recognized by the editors at KBB.com, and similar to last year, Kia’s fun-and-funky urban runabout ranked among the top three on the annual list, which highlights the hippest and most affordable cars on the market.  Editors at Kelley Blue Book once again included the Soul for its stylish looks and tech-savvy content.  With a base price of $15,1901, the Soul offers flexible interior configurations and a unique exterior design with a wide array of available features at a great value.

“Since first coming onto the scene in 2009, the Soul has been an out-of-the-park homerun for Kia, and the second generation retains its iconic design while including modern cues and premium features to enhance our brand’s value proposition,” said Tim Chaney, vice president of marketing communications, KMA.  “It’s these refinements, along with its funky persona, roomy cabin and ample cargo space, that have upped the Soul’s allure, making it even more popular with consumers.”

New for 2015 on the Exclaim model is an available interior Umber Color Package, which is available with either the Fathom Blue or Cloud White exterior colors.  Included with the option package is premium Nappa leather seating surfaces and door armrest accents.  Outside, Gloss Black wheel inserts further set the Umber Color Package apart.

“Some cool vehicles aren’t very versatile, but the Kia Soul made our list of the 10 Coolest Cars Under $18,000 just because it is so versatile,” said Jack Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com. “On the road the Soul’s funky, squared-off shape won’t be mistaken for anything else, and standing out is cool.  At the same time, its collection of useful features and its interior versatility at a very affordable price add significantly to its overall cool quotient.”

The 2015 Soul is offered in three trim levels:  Base, Plus and Exclaim.  Motivation for the Base Soul is delivered by a gasoline direct injection (GDI) 130-horsepower (at 6,300 rpm) 1.6-liter all-aluminum DOHC four-cylinder engine.  The GAMMA engine produces 118 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,850 rpm.  The Plus and Exclaim models enjoy the more powerful 2.0-liter NU power plant with GDI technology.  Power is rated at 164 horsepower at 6,200 rpm and 151 lb.-ft. of torque at a 4,000 rpm.  The 1.6-liter engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission or an optional six-speed automatic. The Plus and Exclaim models are available exclusively with the six-speed automatic gearbox.
