Lots of progress was made this week on our construction project here at Phillips Chevrolet. Our second floor expansion now has roof, and the HVAC units are in place to keep it warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Interior work continues as well, preparing for new financing offices downstairs and accounting offices upstairs. Further back in our facility, work continues on new quick lube bays in our service department and an expanded delivery bay for sales. This $2 million construction project will continue over the winter months and conclude in the spring of 2017. In the meantime our sales and service departments will keep providing the service, selection, and savings that you’ve come to expect from Phillips Chevrolet. Keep an eye on this blog for updates on our construction as it progresses, or stop by and take a look for yourself. Phillips Chevrolet of Frankfort and Lansing has Illinois’ Largest Chevy Inventory and two locations that are constantly evolving to meet our customers’ needs.

With the recent announcements of upcoming diesel variants of the Chevrolet Cruze and the Chevy Equinox, Chevrolet is proud to feature more biodiesel capable vehicles in their lineup than any other brand. The Cruze and Equinox will join Chevy Silverado full-size pickup trucks, Colorado midsize trucks, Express cargo vans, and Low Cab Forward commercial trucks in Chevrolet’s diesel portfolio. “With biodiesel production and retail distribution expanding, and so many proven benefits, we believe more fleets will embrace the technology as part of their sustainability plans,” said John Schwegman, Director of Commercial Product and Medium Duty for GM Fleet. “If our diesel customers fueled exclusively with B20, we estimate that consumption of petroleum-based fuels could be reduced by hundreds of millions gallons annually.” Phillips Chevrolet in Frankfort and Lansing has Illinois’ Largest Chevy Inventory including a great selection of eco-conscious vehicles perfect for commercial fleets.

Car & Driver magazine recently put the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado to the test and found it to be the quickest pickup in the midsize truck segment. The Colorado’s 3.6L V6 engine provides 308 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque, besting the nearest competitor, the Honda Ridgeline. Car & Driver also gives some of the credit to the Colorado’s new 8-speed automatic transmission, helping the truck reach 60 MPH in 6.1 seconds. While the Colorado has the power needed to do some heavy lifting, Car & Driver also found it to be a comfortable commuter, citing a quiet cabin and supportive front seats. They also found the Chevy Colorado to be a good value for the money, with a $34,465 base price for the LT trim which provides the same amenities as many full-size trucks that cost $45,000 or more. Their overall impression: “While the revised powertrain makes this Chevy the quickest entry in the mid-size pack, it’s now even capable of beating up on some full-size models.” Phillips Chevrolet in Frankfort and Lansing has Illinois’ Largest Chevy Inventory including a great selection of Chevrolet Colorados in stock and ready to test drive today!

Car & Driver magazine recently put two of the top plug-in electric vehicles – the Chevrolet Volt and the Toyota Prius Prime – to the test in the traffic and hills around Los Angeles. We are pleased to report that the Chevy Volt came out on top, or in Car & Driver’s words, the Volt “emerged as a clear winner, both as something we’d like to drive and as an EV stopgap.” Both vehicles provide initial miles purely on electric battery, then carry on with a gas engine. The Volt not only provides more electric-only miles on a single charge, but Car & Driver also found the Volt’s ride far more engaging and enjoyable: “The primary controls are suffused with accuracy and consistency. Clear feedback comes through the steering, the body roll is kept in check, the damping has the right dose of starch, and the structure stands up to any assaults from the road.” They were also impressed by the Volt’s exterior styling and wealth of useful and informative data provided in the driver information center and infotainment touchscreen. Phillips Chevrolet in Frankfort and Lansing has Illinois’ Largest Chevy Inventory, including a great selection of Volts in stock now and available with 0% financing for 60 months.

Just in time for the soon-to-be-released LEGO Batman Movie, Chevrolet has unveiled a life-size replica of the film’s Batmobile! “To work on the LEGO Batmobile with Warner Bros. is an absolute thrill for us at Chevy,” said Paul Edwards, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet Marketing. “Many of the themes in ‘The LEGO Batman Movie,’ like imagination, family and community, align perfectly with our Chevy brand values and add to the value of the partnership.” You can get a closer look at the LEGO Batmobile in some Chevrolet TV commercials airing soon, or in person at the Detroit Auto Show. There’s no word yet on whether the LEGO Batmobile will be part of Chevrolet’s display at the Chicago Auto Show next month, but we’ve got our fingers crossed! Phillips Chevrolet in Frankfort and Lansing has Illinois’ Largest Chevy Inventory, including a great selection of Corvettes, the next best thing to a Batmobile.
