Chevrolet Cab Forward Trucks – Available At VanDevere

Cab Forward Trucks Available At VanDevere In Akron


Article From:


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.”

Spy Shots of 2018 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1

Article from:
By: Reese Counts

2018 ZR1 Chevrolet

The 2018 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1 is coming, and based on these new spy photos the biggest, baddest, and most aggressive road-car Chevrolet has ever built is nearly finished. We’ve seen spy photos for months now, with each new batch showing off more and more of the car. These new photos give us our best view yet.

Every test vehicle we’ve seen so far has been covered in camouflage. That’s still true here, but rather than loose fitting covers we have more revealing swirl wrap. For the first time, we can get a good look at the bulging hood and the reworked front end, complete with a massive, ankle gouging splitter. Chevrolet, no stranger to fantastic track-focused machines, seems to be filling the void left by the soon departed Dodge Viper ACR.

The big hood is likely hiding a supercharger larger than the 1.7-liter version found under the hood of the current Z06. Remember, the last generation ZR1 featured a 2.3-liter supercharger. We estimate the engine will be cranking out more than 700 horsepower and will breathe through those massive air intakes in the front bumper.

These new photos show a line of cars out on public roads. It seems Chevrolet is testing a few aero packages, so expect something similar to the Z07 Performance Package to be available on the new ZR1. The new car looks nearly finished, so get ready to see a final production version as soon as the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January.

Halloween Safety Tips

Halloween is only a week away! Check out these Halloween safety tips from Care Works.

Halloween Safe Tips


The simple act of slowing down on neighborhood roads can not only make Halloween more enjoyable for everyone, but it can save lives.
Have Children Going Out for Trick-or-Treat? 

  • Teach children how to call 9-1-1 if they have an emergency or become lost.
  • Have a set time for your kids to return home. Make sure they know how important it is for them to be home on time or to call immediately if something happens and they are going to be delayed.
  • A good meal prior to trick-or-treating helps discourage youngsters from filling up on treats that have not been inspected by a parent or guardian.
  • Avoid trick-or-treating alone. Walk in groups or with a trusted adult.
  • Instruct your child to never go into the home of a stranger or get into their car.
  • Don’t assume the right of way. Motorists may have trouble seeing Trick-or-Treaters. Just because one car stops, doesn’t mean others will.
  • Teach children to make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them.
  • Use reflective tape on costumes and bags so car drivers can see you better.
  • Take a flashlight to help you see, and others see you.
  • Always walk and don’t run from house to house.
  • Always walk on sidewalks when available, or on the far edge of the road facing traffic to stay safe.
  • Consider wearing makeup and hats rather than masks that can obscure your vision.
  • Swords, knives and similar costume accessories should be short, soft and flexible.
  • Do not use decorative contact lenses without an eye examination and a prescription from an eye care professional. Obtaining decorative contact lenses without a prescription is both dangerous and illegal.

Expecting Trick-or-Treaters at Your House?

  • Be sure walking areas and stairs are well lit and free of obstacles that could result in falls.
  • Keep candle-lit Jack-O-Lanterns and luminaries away from doorsteps, walkways, landings, and curtains.
  • Place them on sturdy tables, keep them out of the reach of pets and small children, and never leave them unattended. Or, consider using flameless (electric) Jack-O-Lantern candles.

Halloween Candy Safety Reminders

  • Examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before eating.
  • Eat only factory-wrapped treats and never eat homemade treats made by strangers.
  • Consider a rationed approach of treats for children in the days following Halloween.

The All New 2017 Kia Rio – Check It Out!

Kia Rio 2017



The last time the Kia Rio got a ground-up redesign was for the 2012 model year. That gave the Rio a crisp, modern look, but was also extremely cute-sy. For the 2017 model year, Kiatweaked the Rio with a leaner, meaner look. Relatively speaking, anyway.

The South Korean automaker previously released design renderings of the Rio, and now come official photos of the car. Kia claims that much of the styling changes were made to emphasize width inside and out. The headlights are slimmer and more aggressive than the wide-eyed lamps of the previous model, and much of the gently curving sheetmetal has been removed in favor of more flat planes. Not only that, but the new Rio is slightly longer, wider, and shorter than its predecessor.

Inside, Kia has spruced things up with what looks like a nicer mix of materials. The most unusual part of the interior is the infotainment system, which Kia describes as “floating.” The infotainment system extends up and off the dashboard, a bit like the screen on the Honda Civic. The good news is that Kia kept physical buttons part of the interface. The bad news is that the design looks a bit odd, as some of the buttons extend up with the screen and make it look a little like Kia used a stereo that didn’t quite fit in the dash.

Kia didn’t reveal any other specs on the car, but those details will likely come during the Paris Motor Show. This updated Rio is an important model for Kia, as last year it sold 473,000 units worldwide. While it isn’t Kia’s biggest seller in the US, it did have a slight increase in sales this year.
