General Motors fills its vehicles with plenty of advanced, high-tech solutions so you never lose your way. With the launch of Maps+, GM has made navigating easier and more intuitive than ever before.
The new Maps+ in-vehicle navigation app, powered by Mapbox, upgrades the capabilities of compatible Buick, Chevrolet, GMC, and Cadillac vehicles that are model year 2018 and newer. Maps+ began its rollout at the end of April to approximately 900,000 vehicles through select Connected Services plans.
By combining navigation, voice assistants, and apps into a singular system, Maps+ integrates its capability with vehicles that previously did not have built-in navigation. Maps+ works with Alexa built-in voice control, which can be used to start navigation or listen to music and podcasts. Other Maps+ features include cross-app integration and a simple interface, personalization of design and shortcuts, and other services such as speed limit and road hazard alerts, real-time map data, and routing notifications.
Maps+ adds to GM’s extensive suite of features and technologies that seamlessly and safely integrate information and convenience into your drive.

GM recently announced that Chevrolet’s popular pickup truck is going electric. With a new electric Chevrolet Silverado coming to the Chevy lineup, GM continues to pave the way for an electric, zero-emissions future with its innovative electric vehicles.
Not only will the new electric Chevy Silverado become Chevrolet’s first full-size battery-powered pickup truck, but it will also be available for a wide range of uses. Whether you opt for the retail and fleet-oriented versions of the electric Silverado, or you simply want to enjoy the thrill of driving electric in your everyday life, the Chevy Silverado EV will blend Chevrolet’s classic pickup design and capabilities with GM’s advanced electric technology.
With over 400 miles of expected zero-emissions driving when fully charged, the electric Chevy Silverado will be powered by GM’s exclusive Ultium batteries. The Ultium platform is developed from GM’s new company, Ultium Cells LLC, which is based in Lordstown, Ohio. The full-size electric truck will be built at GM’s Factory ZERO assembly plant in Michigan, the same location that produces the GMC Hummer EV and upcoming Cruise Origin. A $2.2 billion investment in the facility in 2020 marked GM’s first EV-only assembly plant that continues to change the way electric vehicles are developed and built.
Here at Bradshaw Automotive in Greer, South Carolina, we look forward to learning more about the electric Silverado in the coming months — and sharing what we learn with you!
