GM Supports Heatstroke Prevention

This week, General Motors has teamed up with the Safe Kids Worldwide Foundation to promote “National Heatstroke Awareness Day.”

The awareness day, which takes place on Wednesday, July 31st, is part of the Safe Kids Worldwide “Never Leave Your Child in a Car” campaign created to spread information on the perils of leaving children unattended in vehicles on hot days. In keeping with its high regard for driver and passenger safety both on and off the road, GM has donated $200,000 to the Safe Kids Worldwide Foundation to support the campaign.

According to the national Highway Traffic Safety Administration, an average of 37 children dies each year from heatstroke.

“Even one death is too many, so we are grateful to have support from the GM Foundation to raise awareness about heatstroke prevention,” said Kate Carr, CEO of the Safe Kids Worldwide Foundation.

Bradshaw Chevrolet Buick GMC CadillacEarning a 95-point score in the Consumer Report, the Impala beat out every sedan tested this year and scored higher than every 2014 car but the Tesla Model S and the BMW 1 Series. The Impala’s top rating was based on a variety of factors, including its spacious cabin, which is outfitted with top-level materials and much trunk and back seat space; its impressive handing, complete with light steering and great braking; and its 22 miles per gallon fuel economy.

The new Impala comes with a choice between a 3.6-liter V6 engine, a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine and a 2.4-liter engine with eAssist.

New Corvette Stingray Offers Top Efficiency

The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will offer drivers an EPA-estimated 17 city and 29 highway miles per gallon and 455 horsepower when equipped with an available 7-speed manual transmission. This rating makes the Stingray the most efficient sports car on the market for 2014.

Bradshaw Automotive of Greer, SCWith its 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine and a host of fuel-saving features like “Eco” mode, the all new Corvette Stingray boasts an 11 percent increase in highway fuel economy and a 6 percent increase in horsepower over the 2013 Corvette. The new Stingray is unique in providing both great fuel economy and top horsepower: cars with high power tend to guzzle gas, and those with great gas mileage usually don’t deliver great power. The new Stingray also maintains the classic Corvette design and style that has made it a top-performing sports car for over 60 years.

The car’s innovative technology is likely to inspire more cars in the sports car segment to improve their fuel economies.

“The Corvette Stingray establishes the benchmark for modern performance cars by using technologies to deliver more performance and more miles per gallon,” said Tadge Juechter, a Corvette spokesperson. “We expect more and more performance cars will follow Corvette’s example.”

The new Stingray also maintains the classic Corvette design and style that has made it a top-performing sports car for over 60 years.
