2023 Corvette Z06 Raises $1 Million for Charity

2023 Corvette Z06 Raises $1 Million for Charity | Greer, SC

There is no cooler car than the Chevy Corvette and that has been a fact for decades. When you combine the coolness factor of the Corvette with Chevy’s philanthropy, you get an impressive vehicle to help those in need. On April 9, at the Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Auction, the 2023 Corvette Z06 raised 1 million dollars for the Thurgood Marshall College Fund.

“The 2022 Palm Beach Auction is a community event that we are very proud to be associated with,” said Dr. Harry L. Williams, president & CEO of the Thurgood Marshall College Fund. “Through the generous support of GM, Chevrolet and Barrett-Jackson, we raised a significant amount of funds and awareness of our TQRP initiative, which provides opportunities for students of color in the K-12 educational environment and beyond.”

In January, a first retail production of a 70th Anniversary Edition 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 garnered a hefty sales price at auction, as well. Between the two Corvette models, the total in charitable donations in 2022, is approximately $4.6 million.

You’ve got a busy, active lifestyle — and your Chevy truck can keep up with the toughest tasks you can throw at it. And with genuine Chevrolet accessories, you can get even more out of your Chevrolet Colorado or Silverado 1500. Here’s a look at a few of the top accessories for your Chevy truck.

Floor Mats

Whether you’re tackling dirty jobs or mudding out in the backcountry of the Palmetto State, it’s easy to get your truck’s cabin soiled. You can still get down and dirty with outdoor activities — while mitigating the mess — by outfitting your pickup with a set of floor mats.

Exterior Cargo Carriers

Your Silverado offers 89.1 cubic feet of cargo space, but if you need a little more room for your hunting, fishing, or camping gear, consider an exterior cargo carrier. These handy accessories can mount to the top of your truck or attach to the trailer hitch.

Truck Bed Tent

If you want to explore the great outdoors and make family memories, consider outfitting your Colorado with a truck bed tent. This handy accessory can turn any spot into a campsite, and you won’t even have to worry about sleeping on wet or uneven ground. Bring along an air mattress for extra comfort.

Chevrolet recently revealed the brand-new electric Silverado. With plenty of range, a wealth of power, and unmatched versatility, this EV proves that going green doesn’t have to be a sacrifice.

This innovative pickup truck is expected to deliver 400 miles of driving range on a full charge. [1] Despite its impressive range, the Silverado EV will offer plenty of towing power.

Check Out the 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06

2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, Greer, SC

2022 isn’t even here yet, but Chevrolet is already looking forward to the 2023 model year. We’ll let it slide because we’re as excited as the bowtie brand is for the 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06.

All-New Engine

This new Corvette has an all-new engine under the hood, the 5.5-liter LT6 DOHC V8. It’s the highest-horsepower naturally aspirated V8 engine on the market, slated to achieve 670 horsepower at 8,600 rpm and 460 lb-ft of torque.

All of this power comes from the racetrack engineering embedded in the Chevrolet Corvette Z06’s very bones. Besides the new engine, the front and rear facia has a wider look to resemble other track-ready supercars. This Corvette will also follow the mid-engine design launched two years ago for increased stability and handling wherever you drive it. The Z06 borrows popular features from the Corvette Stingray, like advanced driver technologies, to create the ultimate ride.

Customization

The Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is made to be customized. In the 2023 model year, you’ll be able to upgrade with a Z07 Performance Package for even more track-tuned performance.

Like the other famed Corvettes before it, the 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 will be built in Kentucky, home of America’s fastest thoroughbreds. While we’re talking about it now, the car isn’t slated for production until summer 2022.

Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban Get Upgrades for 2022

2022 Chevrolet Suburban | Greer, SC

The 2022 model year is coming soon, and it brings bigger and better things for the Chevrolet Suburban and Chevrolet Tahoe. This includes new power options under the hood and additional technology features. 

Both the 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban will have increased V8 engine availability: the RST, Z71, and Premier trim levels are available with the 6.3-liter V8 engine that achieves 420 horsepower. An available electronic limited slip differential also monitors your wheels as you drive, giving you a sportier driving experience. 

If you use Google to run your life, you’ll be happy to know that the Tahoe and Suburban will now be available with Google Assistant. It works with Android™ Auto and Apple CarPlay® to manage audio volume, climate settings, Google Maps, and phone messages with your voice. Chevrolet plans for additional uses for the feature as it rolls out. 

For safety, the Front and Rear Park Assist, Lane Keep Assist, and Lane Departure Warning systems will now be standard on all trims of these vehicles. Advanced safety systems are good, but seat belts are still an essential way to protect you and your family on the go. The 2022 Suburban and Tahoe will come standard with the Buckle to Drive feature. It won’t let you move the car out of park until the front passenger and driver have their seat belts on.

Buick Encore GX and Chevrolet Trailblazer Grab IIHS Safety Awards

2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer, Greer, SC

If you’re shopping for a small SUV, consider taking the Buick Encore GX or Chevrolet Trailblazer out for a spin. The Trailblazer just earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s top recognition, IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+, and the Encore GX earned an IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK award.

The difference between the two awards comes down to headlights. The Buick Encore GX has the TOP SAFETY PICK award because it has an available headlight system with an acceptable or good rating. The Trailblazer’s bump to the TOP SAFETY PICK+ comes from headlights across all of its trim levels that meet that designation.

Both of the vehicles scored a good rating in the six IIHS crash tests, including the notoriously difficult overlap tests.

As a nod to advanced driver-assist technology, the IIHS recognized that both the Buick Encore GX and Chevy Trailblazer have an available front crash prevention system. Not only can you add these systems, but they also performed at a level to bring home a superior or advanced score. 

If you’re shopping for something to help you drive around town in comfort, the Buick Encore GX is a good choice. Its small size makes it a breeze to maneuver, but the interior cargo areas can be configured for all the cargo you need. 

The Chevrolet Trailblazer is one of Chevy’s storied nameplates. Discontinued in 2009, it’s back and more than ready to take on your family’s adventures. 

Visit Bradshaw Automotive in Greer, South Carolina, to learn more about both of these award-winning SUVs.

Chevy Colorado Gets New Trail Boss Package

2022 Chevrolet Colorado Greer, SC

The new Chevy Colorado has plenty of features and upgrades to impress for the 2022 model year. But, one feature that is sure to thrill adventure-seekers is the new Trail Boss Package, specifically designed for off-roading adventures.

The Trail Boss Package will bolster the 2022 Chevy Colorado to take on the toughest terrain thanks to features including 17-inch high-gloss black wheels, a performance front skid plate, a performance mid skid plate, red recovery hooks, and a front 1-inch leveling kit. Adding to the exterior style and bold design of the 2022 Colorado are tailgate lettering and Colorado emblems in black.

To get the Trailboss Package, you will need to choose a four-wheel drive equipped LT or Z71 trim of the 2022 Chevy Colorado. Opting for the Trail Boss Package on the LT trim will clad your Colorado with black bowtie emblems but make it ineligible for the Chrome Appearance Package. You also won’t be privy to the Redline Special Edition and LPO-level wheels. The Z71 Midnight Edition and any LPO-level wheels are not compatible with the Trail Boss Package on the Z71 trim.

Contact Bradshaw Automotive to learn more about how you can equip the 2022 Chevrolet Colorado with the new Trailboss Package.

Chevrolet Traverse Wins IIHS Top Safety Pick Award

2021 Chevrolet Traverse | Greer, SC

Safety is a top concern for Chevrolet and it shows in the 2021 Chevrolet Traverse. When equipped with optional front crash prevention and specific headlights, the midsize SUV earns a Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

“Safety for our customers through each of our brands has always been paramount to our operations,” said John Capp, director of Global Safety Technology, Strategy and Regulations at GM.

The well-equipped 2021 Traverse earned the rating from the IIHS after it scored “Good” in the agency’s crashworthiness tests, the highest mark available. The six crashworthiness tests are small overlap front: driver side, small overlap front: passenger-side, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints and seats. The IIHS also rated the available front crash prevention, vehicle-to-vehicle tech in the 2021 Traverse as “Superior.”

Standard safety tech on the 2021 Traverse, which is available with FWD or AWD, includes a rear vision camera, an airbag system, and a tire pressure monitoring system. Teen Driver technology is also standard, allowing you to monitor the driving habits of your inexperienced driver as well as set limits on vehicle features including speed and audio volume.

The IIHS isn’t the only prominent safety group to rate the Traverse highly. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has given the 2021 Chevrolet Traverse a five-star overall safety rating.

The New 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Is Coming Soon

Coming Soon | 2022 Silverado 1500 | Greer, SC

This fall, Chevrolet steps up its truck game yet again with the new and improved 2022 Silverado 1500. Likely debuting in September, the latest Silverado pickup boasts a host of impressive improvements — including cutting-edge technology and an exciting new trim.

Chevrolet has confirmed that the new 2022 Silverado will be the second vehicle in the lineup to receive Super Cruise™ hands-free driving technology. Super Cruise™ comes enhanced for 2022 with a new feature tailor-made for the Silverado: the ability to trailer hands-free. New Super Cruise™ also offers features like automatic lane change and an enhanced navigation display.

2022 also finally marks the debut of the Silverado ZR2. The popular trim, which has been part of the Colorado lineup since 2017, will make the latest Silverado even more off-road-capable than ever. Expect similar upgrades to the Colorado ZR2, including a Multimatic DSSV™ Damping System and a unique ZR2 off-road-tuned suspension.

On top of all this, the new 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will sport a bold new look inside and out. Expected improvements include a larger touch-screen display, more interior refinement, and a more aggressive face. Considering that the current Silverado is one of the best-looking and most refined trucks on the road, there’s plenty of reason to be excited.

Another reason to be excited: Chevrolet should be pulling the cover off the 2022 Silverado 1500 very soon. And that means it’ll be in stock and ready to roll at Bradshaw Automotive in Greer, South Carolina, before you know it.
