Three million Chevy Cruzes sold, eighty eight awards won, well-traveled in one-hundred and eighteen countries – not bad for a six year old! Since its debut in 2008, the Chevrolet Cruze has become a global best-seller, hitting the 3 millionth unit sold milestone just this month. One of the secrets to the Cruze’s success is that it’s not only priced affordably, but is also fuel efficient. “The cost of energy is going to be an issue for a long time and in most markets that’s a big consideration,” said Joe Phillippi of AutoTrends Consulting in Andover, N.J. “If you can offer someone very affordable, high quality transportation at an affordable price with a substantial package of safety equipment, that’s a big plus.” The 2014 Chevy Cruze is currently available at Phillips Chevrolet with 0% financing for 72 months until Sept. 2nd, and it shouldn’t be long before the 2015 Chevy Cruze arrives with a refreshed exterior and brand new wi-fi connectivity options.

Chevrolet announced that the 2015 Corvette Z06, which is the most powerful and technologically advanced model in the car’s 62-year history, will be offered at a suggested retail price of $78,995 while the convertible model will start at $83,995. According to Corvette product and marketing manager, Harlan Charles, the Z06’s performance and technical capabilities place it in the elite class of supercars. “Very few cars in the world deliver 650 horsepower, true aerodynamic downforce, and performance technologies such as Magnetic Ride Control.” With several packages and trim levels there is a wide variety of available features that enable customers to tailor the look and feel of their Z06 with additions from the Performance Data Recorder and navigation to competition sport seats. While the Corvette Z06 leverages some technology capabilities introduced on the Corvette Stingray like Active Fuel Management, the Z06 is the most powerful production car ever from General Motors and one of the most powerful production cars available in the United States. Here at Phillips Chevrolet we are greatly anticipating the arrival of the Z06 and can’t wait until it is delivered to our lot!

While overall customer vehicle satisfaction levels in the auto industry have dipped this year on the American Customer Satisfaction Index, Chevrolet was one of only two automotive brands to improve its rating in customer satisfaction. The satisfaction survey is usually dominated by Asian and European brands, but Chevrolet has jumped 4 points from 2013 and shares the top ten with fellow General Motors brands Buick and GMC. In fact, these three GM brands were the only American automakers to land in the top ten. To gauge a customer’s level of satisfaction, the American Customer Satisfaction Index allows customers to evaluate the quality of products and services via telephone interviews. One of the areas customers noted of particular importance was the availability of incentives, so Chevy’s numbers are sure to rise even further with great offers like 0% financing for 72 months available right now on many Chevrolet models. This offer ends on Tuesday, 8/26/14, so stop in today!
In the five years since its introduction for the 2010 model year, the Chevy Equinox has consistently shown strong sales month after month. In fact, last month 25,300 customers drove home in a new Equinox, a 37% increase over July of last year. Even better, 27% of Equinox drivers have traded in their first Equinox for a second. “What gives a vehicle staying power is trust,” said Jessica Caldwell, an analyst with the car-shopping website Edmunds.com. “Vehicles that are top sellers despite their age are nameplates that car shoppers can trust to have good quality, durability and reliability. They aren't designed with the latest fad in mind – they are vehicles that are tested over time and have proven to be good products.” The 2015 Chevy Equinox has just arrived here at Phillips Chevrolet and it offers all of the above, plus, brand new this year, a 4G LTE connection that allows you to turn your Equinox into a wi-fi hotspot for up to seven devices.
