Take a Peek at the Future Chevrolet Equinox

Appropriately on the day of the autumnal equinox, Chevrolet unveiled the future Chevrolet Equinox. The 2018 Equinox will be an all-new design with fresh styling, advanced technology, comprehensive safety, and powerful engine options.

Starting from the outside, the new Equinox will have a lean, muscular design that follows Chevrolet’s global design cues. In addition, it features chrome trim on all trim levels to enhance its Malibu-inspired design. The Equinox will come with standard projector-beam headlights and LED daytime running lights.

Inside, Chevrolet is incorporating numerous unique enhancements, including a low windshield base for greater visibility and “kneeling” rear seats that fold down flat for easier loading. Buyers may also like the new available denim-style seat fabric for a unique look.

Keeping passengers connected will be the available 4G LTE Wi-Fi system that allows up to seven devices to connect at once. Buyers will be able to choose between a 7- and 8-inch MyLink touchscreen system.

With a range of three turbocharged engines, customers will be able to find the ideal balance of power and efficiency. The lineup will also include North America’s first turbo-diesel.

The all-new 2018 Chevrolet Equinox will go on sale here at Bradshaw Automotive in the first quarter of 2017.

Chevrolet’s Electric Bolt May Get New Name

green drivingIn January, Chevrolet’s electric Bolt concept made its world debut. Since then, we’ve learned it’s headed for production in late 2016 and should debut early the next year as a 2017 model.

Now we’ve learned the Bolt may be getting a new name, which we don’t think is a bad thing, especially since Chevrolet’s extended-range hybrid car is named the Volt.

“Some people think it’s confusing,” said Alan Batey, president of GM North America, in an interview with USA Today. “People are having some fun with it. It is generating awareness, which is good. It’s so conversational. We’re still in the decision phase. It could go either way. We have a little bit more time [to decide on the final name].”

The production version of the Bolt is expected to have an electric driving range of 200 miles, which should be more than enough to ease most range anxiety. Chevrolet also plans to sell it in all 50 states so everyone will be able to enjoy the benefits of electric driving.

We at Bradshaw Chevrolet want to know—if you could choose the name for Chevrolet’s new electric car, what would you choose?

Bolting Ahead in 2017: The Extended-Range Electric Chevrolet Bolt

extended-range electric Chevrolet BoltThe buzz from the Detroit Auto Show is rising to a crescendo, even after the event has closed, about one car in particular. The clamor is coming from the extended-range electric Chevrolet Bolt, the most talked about car at the show. With an estimated 200-mile electric range, double the Nissan Leaf, this new concept-in-name-only car can outpace any EV currently available! Couple that with the configuration allowing for four-passenger room and a spacious trunk, and you have a mass-market contender.

Chevrolet has leveraged all its expertise on zero-emission technology into this car, making it production-ready as early as 2017. The smaller and more efficient fuel cells sit completely beneath the floorboards to make the interior as spacious as a crossover, seating four and still leaving room for trunk storage.

Perhaps the most appealing feature is the price. Though not official, the Bolt will find its way into the market at around $30,000-$35,000, after a federal tax credit. That low price—and the 2017 Bolt’s high capabilities—will make this Chevy a great car for almost anyone. “For most people, this car can be their daily drive,” stated Chevrolet CEO Mary Barra.

Keep an eye on Chevrolet and its goal of bringing advancing technologies right to your driveway—and to Bradshaw Chevrolet!

Chevy Bolt EV Technology Refines All-Electric Capability

Chevy Bolt EV technologyDespite all of the new electric vehicles coming out this year, very few are actually affordable–until now, that is. Chevy recently unveiled the new Bolt EV, a long-range all-electric car that’s not so hard on your wallet.

According to Chevy, the Chevy Bolt EV technology enables the new model to have a range of over 200 miles. Not only that, but the charger has also been modified to drastically decrease total charge time. No more waiting 24 hours to fill the tank!

“The Bolt EV concept is a game-changing electric vehicle designed for attainability, not exclusivity,” said General Motors CEO Mary Barra. “Chevrolet believes electrification is a pillar of future transportation and needs to be affordable for a wider segment of customers.”

Drivers will also have the option of changing driving modes, from daily commute to weekend cruise, for example. The car’s computer will automatically adjust accelerator pedal mapping, ride height, and suspension tuning for that type of driving. Whether you want more power or more efficiency, the choice is at your fingertips.

With all of these new technologies and the incredible affordability of the new Bolt EV, we at Bradshaw Chevrolet see no excuse not to go all-electric.

Yes, we started producing customer cars yesterday,” Chevy spokesman Monte Doran said in a discussion with Autoblog. “We are not shipping cars to customers yet, though. We’re still doing final quality checks and audits and will begin shipping cars in the coming weeks.” So we might still have a while to wait, but it’s encouraging news, nonetheless.
