Chevrolet Reveals Redesigned Bolt EV and New Bolt EUV

2022 Chevrolet Bolt Greer, SC

 

General Motors has a plan to introduce 30 new electric vehicles globally by 2025. Bringing the automaker one step closer to that goal are the redesigned 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV and the new 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV. These additions to GM’s electric vehicle portfolio fit into a vision of the future with zero emissions, zero crashes, and zero congestion.

Bolt EV & Bolt EUV

The Bolt EV and new Bolt EUV feature unique exterior designs and technology that make electric vehicles more convenient, affordable, and reliable. The 2022 Bolt EUV packages the best of the Bolt EV into an SUV-like vehicle, and it is also the first Chevrolet vehicle to offer Super Cruise. The industry’s first hands-free driver assistance system works on more than 200,000 miles of enabled roads in the United States and Canada.

 

The new Dual Level Charge Cord, which comes standard on the Bolt EUV and is available for the Bolt EV, makes it more convenient to charge the vehicles by offering a changeable plug for both Level 1 and Level 2 charging. Chevrolet also makes it easier to live electric by covering standard installation of Level 2 charging capability when eligible customers purchase or lease a 2022 Bolt EV or EUV.

EVgo

GM is also working to make the Bolt EV and Bolt EUV easier to drive. A collaboration with EVgo will bring expanded access to fast chargers with more than 2,700 chargers being added around the country, making it more convenient to find public charging.

Contact us at Bradshaw Automotive in Greer, South Carolina, to learn how you can get behind the wheel of the Bolt EV and new Bolt EUV.

How Are the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado HD Different?

2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 & Silverado HD - Greer, SC

The 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and 2021 Chevrolet Silverado HD are both powerful and capable trucks, but they’re far from identical. If you are looking to buy a Chevy pickup, here are some of the key differences between the Silverado 1500 and Silverado HD.

Different Sizes 

The Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD trucks are bigger compared to the Silverado 1500. The Silverado 1500 is classified as a half-ton truck, while the 2500HD is a three-quarter-ton truck and the 3500HD is a one-ton truck. This means Silverado HD models have larger dimensions in terms of weight, length, width, and height.

Different Capabilities

Because the Chevy Silverado HD is bigger, it can tow and haul more weight than the Chevy Silverado 1500. Gas-powered Silverado 3500HD trucks have a payload of up to 7,442 pounds and a maximum towing capacity of 17,200 pounds. Diesel 3500HD models can carry up to 6,523 pounds and tow up to 36,000 pounds. The Silverado 2500HD also offers impressive capacity, with up to a 3,979-pound payload and towing up to 18,500 pounds. While the Chevy Silverado 1500 can’t tow and haul quite as much, it still offers powerful capability for its size, with a maximum towing capacity of 13,300 pounds and a maximum payload of 2,280 pounds.

More Engine Options

The 2021 Silverado 1500 has six engine options for you to choose from, whereas the 2021 Silverado HD only presents two. You can equip the Silverado 1500 with a standard 4.3-liter V6, 2.7-liter turbo, 3.0-liter Duramax® turbodiesel, two 5.3-liter V8 engines, or a 6.2-liter V8. For the Silverado HD, you can choose between a 6.6-liter V8 and a Duramax® turbodiesel engine.

Overall, the Chevy Silverado 1500 is best for light-duty jobs and everyday driving. If you’re looking for a truck to handle heavy-duty work, the Chevy Silverado HD is a safe bet. To test-drive either of these outstanding pickups, stop in to see us here at Bradshaw Automotive in Greer, South Carolina.

Tips for Spring-Cleaning Your Car

Spring Cleaning | Greer, SC

Winter might be over, but that doesn’t mean its effects are. Your car is probably still be littered with salt, stains, and odors from months of chilly, wet weather. These handy tips for spring-cleaning your car will help ensure that your family vehicle is just as fresh as the spring air.

 

Get Rid of the Junk

 The first step is the simplest: toss all the junk from your car. That means wrappers, cups, lids, papers, and anything else that belongs in the trash and not your vehicle.

 

Wash Upholstery

 The last few months of sloppy, muddy weather have probably done a number on your upholstery. Once your car is clear of junk and the seats are fully exposed, vacuum thoroughly and then use a microfiber cloth to wipe as much as you can. Stains or hardened gunk might require brushing; for leather seats, use a protective cleaning solution.

 

Wash Your Exterior

 Once the seats are clean, the next step is to wash your car’s exterior to rid it of the grime, salt, and debris that have built up all winter. Not only will doing so make your ride look shiny and new, but it will also help prevent rust and damage to your exterior.

 

While you’re at it, spring is also a good time to get caught up on scheduled maintenance for your vehicle. To do this, call for an appointment with our expert service technicians at Bradshaw Automotive in Greer, South Carolina.
