Good news! Chevrolet’s all-new 2015 City Express cargo van began shipping to dealerships as of yesterday! The City Express is perfect for drivers looking for cargo hauling flexibility with efficiency, as these vans are built to each driver’s specific needs. Chevrolet knows many customers have been waiting for this vehicle for a while and that’s why Chevrolet.com offers web tools that provide customization options for their vehicle. GM Fleet & Commercial vice president, Ed Peper said Chevrolet made this available because most people purchasing these vehicles have a hard time getting away from work to stop by a dealership and don’t have hours to spend designing their van. “We give them the option to build a City Express online with their specific color, trim, and even wheels, so they are fully aware of the cost to their business before they meet with a salesperson.” The new 2015 City Express will begin at $22,950. Here at Phillips Chevrolet we can’t wait for our first 2015 City Express van to arrive!

It’s Teen Driver Safety Week and General Motors is encouraging parents to talk with young drivers about safe behaviors on the road and as a passenger. In June, Safe Kids Worldwide released a study finding one in four teens, ages 13-19, does not use a safety belt on ever ride. Each year among teen crash fatalities, about 47 percent are teen drivers and 54 percent are teen passengers. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration offers “Five to Drive” rules of the road: no cell phones, no extra passengers, no speeding, no alcohol, and always buckle up. GM Vice President of Global Vehicle Safety, Jeff Boyer takes teen vehicle safety very seriously. “The reality is that we as parents can make a huge impact on making sure our kids make the right decisions on the road just by talking to them.” Chevrolet designs all their vehicles with safety in mind and that’s why each car is loaded with air bags in case an accident does happen. The 2015 Chevy Sonic even received a 5 Star Overall Safety Score making it one of the safest vehicles in its class. Stop on by Phillips Chevrolet to check out our large inventory and to find the perfect vehicle to keep your teen driver safe!

Your pup may have some competition when it comes to table
scraps with the new 2015 Bi-fuel Chevrolet Impala. This vehicle can run on fuel
derived from leftovers, table scraps, and even grains from brewing beer!
Organic waste is used to produce a renewable energy source known as biogas
which is then converted into fuel to power this special Impala. The 2015 Chevy
Bi-fuel Impala can run on either CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) or RNG (Renewable
Natural Gas). The Cleveland Indians
currently contribute food waste for CNG-production turning their waste into
something useful! Similar to Chevy’s electric powered Volt, the Impala’s
bi-fuel system seamlessly switches to gasoline power when the CNG tank is
depleted. While CNG fueling stations are most prevalent in states like
California and Oklahoma, many states plan to have them soon. The bi-fuel Impala has even been nominated
for the Green Car of the Year Award! This environmentally friendly Impala will
start at $38,210 when it arrives at Phillips Chevrolet later this year.

The Chevy Silverado is one of the most dependable full-size pickups on the road due to its strength from the foundation to the engine. The 2015 Silverado’s strength can be measured through five core elements. The first is the fully boxed frame built from high-strength steel that provides a rigid base for maximum hauling capabilities. The high-strength-steel-reinforced body structure enhances its safety performance making it the only full-size pickup to earn a 5-Star overall rating in government crash tests. The Silverado also finds strength in its tough cargo box and tailgate which includes standard integrated cargo tie-downs and the CornerStep making it easier to access the box. You can’t mention the Silverado’s strength without drawing attention to the 5.3L EcoTec V-8 that offers up to 23 mpg highway! Lastly, the long-lasting Duralife brake rotors offer up to double the service life enhancing braking performance. Director of Chevy Truck Marketing, Sandor Piszar, said, “We’ve engineered new technologies to take the Silverado to higher levels of capability and efficiency, but never at the expense of the trust owners have put in it.” Stop on by Phillips Chevrolet to check out our large selection of Silverados!
Yahoo recently released a list of their Top 12 most searched green
vehicles, and we’re pleased to report that two Chevrolets have made the
list. The Chevrolet Cruze Diesel
is a popular search for drivers looking to reduce their fuel
consumption without the range limitations of an electric car. And with a
46 mpg fuel efficiency rating on the highway, it even beats the fuel
economy of many hybrids! Of course, no list of green vehicles would be
complete without the Chevy Volt,
with its combination of pure electric driving and extended range
capabilities. Those searching Yahoo for the best green vehicles will be
impressed by the Volt’s 35-40 miles of all electric driving followed by
another 300+ miles of gas powered range from a single tank. With plenty
of other fuel efficient options in the Chevy lineup
and even more electric options rumored for the future, plus our own
free-to-the-public solar charging station, there’s a lot for fans of
green vehicles to get excited about at Phillips Chevrolet.
