Though no official announcement has been made yet, General Motors recently filed an application to register ZR1 as a trademark. You may recall that the last generation of Chevrolet Corvette included a ZR1 version that sported a supercharged 6.2 L LS9 V8 producing 638 horsepower. Of course, now in the Corvette’s 7th generation we have the Corvette Z06 capable of 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque, so we can only imagine how over-the-top powerful a C7 ZR1 could be. The C6 ZR1 was introduced in 2009, about halfway through that generation’s lifecycle, so if the schedule is the same, the timing would be right to hear about a C7 ZR1 any day now. Keep an eye on this blog as we’ll be sure to share an official news as soon as it becomes available. Phillips Chevrolet has Illinois’ Largest Chevy Inventory including a great selection of high performance Corvettes in stock now.

Every year, Vincentric, an automotive data compilation and analysis firm, compiles its Best Fleet Value in America awards and we are pleased to report that four Chevrolet models have earned the award this year. The Chevrolet Express 2500 Full-Size ¾-Ton Passenger Van, Chevrolet Silverado 2500 and 3500 trucks, and Chevy Impala Limited large sedan all took top honors this year. “General Motors received awards in a wide range of segments,” said David Wurster, president of Vincentric. “It’s clear that GM’s strong product portfolio provides measurable value to fleet customers.” Vincentric measures how much depreciation, fees and taxes, financing, fuel, insurance, maintenance, opportunity costs and repairs will cost businesses for their fleets and calculates which vehicles come out best in a cost-benefit analysis. Phillips Chevrolet has Illinois’ Largest Chevy Inventory, including a great selection of award-winning commercial vehicles and a dedicated commercial tea to back them up.
It seems like it was just a few days ago that we broke ground on our most recent expansion at Phillips Chevrolet of Lansing, but look how far we’ve come! These walls that just went up will soon enclose a new, state-of-the-art car wash and six additional service bays. This project also includes enhancements to the exterior façade of our entire Service Department. These improvements to our Lansing location are in addition to the $4 million renovation project completed last year, which updated the building’s front façade, expanded and modernized our showroom, service drive, and waiting room, and expanded our vehicle storage lots. As the summer months progress, work will advance on an expansion at our Frankfort location as well, including the addition of Quick Lube stalls and additional sales and accounting offices. Phillips Chevrolet has Illinois’ Largest Chevy Inventory and two locations that are constantly evolving to meet our customers’ needs.
