15tahoe

The completely redesigned 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe is now available at Red River Chevrolet, and this SUV is amazing!  The full-size Tahoe SUV remains V8 powered to handle everything from the trails, to the highway, to towing and everything in between.

Just by looking at the new Chevy Tahoe, differences from the previous body style are apparent.  The exterior lines on the body are sculpted for a contemporary design with uniquely shaped headlamps, chrome grille, and an aerodynamic spoiler.  The interior has some of the most drastic changes however.  Technology is in no short supply with this SUV.  A full-color Driver Information Screen is located in the middle of the instrument cluster offering the driver several difference pieces of information and control metrics for things such as the entertainment, phone, and navigation.  Connecting your phone has never been easier thanks to the latest generation MyLink infotainment system.  The Tahoe offers up to Six USB ports and up to twelve charging locations for those portable devices.

 

More technology resides in the safety features in this Luxury SUV.  Some of these technologies include Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning, Cross-Traffic Alert, Vibration alerts in the seat, and of course – OnStar technology!

Colors available on the 2015 Tahoe include Black, Summit White, Silver Ice Metallic, Champagne Silver Metallic, Tungsten Metallic, Sable Metallic, White Diamond Tricoat, and Crystal Red Tintcoat.

The all-new 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe is now available at Red River Chevrolet in Bossier City, LA.  Come see it at 221 Traffic Street next to the Horseshoe Casino.  We are your local Chevrolet dealership in Lousiana!  Check out our walk around videos of the 2015 Chevy Tahoe below.  Visit us online at www.RedRiverChevy.com or give us a call at 1-800-256-7890 (318.549.7500).

silveradocarscom impalacarscom

Cars.com picked the all-new 2014 Chevrolet Impala and the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado as its Best Car and Best Truck for 2014! These awards are presented each year at the North American International Auto Show. The award is a highly prestigious award, and for Patrick Olsen, editor-in-chief of Cars.com, states, “Winning just one of these awards for an automaker is pretty tough, given the high number of quality cars and trucks that debut each year. For Chevrolet to grab both awards show the depth of their ability to build desirable vehicles.”

The Silverado, along with the Impala, has been completely redesigned for the 2014 year. It earned its place at the top with its chassis strength, redesigned interior, and the new MyLink connected infotainment system. Alan Batey, General Motors senior vice president of Global Chevrolet states, “Winning these awards is a huge honor for Chevrolet. The fact that the top vehicles in both these categories is a Chevrolet speaks volumes about the strength of our entire portfolio”.

Supercharged 2015 C7 Corvette Z06

2015-chevrolet-corvette-z06-designed-downforce-cnt-well-1-1480x551-01

Chevrolet has announced the most track-capable Corvette in the history of the car. The 2015 C7 Corvette Z06 is offering new performance for this year. The power behind the Vette is coming from the LT4 engine which is just an inch taller than the LT1. The LT4 is a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 producing “at least” 625 horsepower and 635 pound-feet of torque. The engine is fitted with an integrated 1.7-liter Eaton supercharger and intercooler with the blower spinning beyond that of the ZR1 of 15,000 with this one going up to 20,000 rpm. It also utilizes shorter rotors to get up to speed more quickly. Some other features include the Active Fuel Management to help keep gas mileage on par as well as with a dry-sump oil system that has a larger capacity than that of the Stingray’s Z51 package.

New for the Z06 this year is the choice of transmissions. A choice between a seven-speed manual or the all-new 8L90 eight-speed automatic transmission. This conventional automatic with a torque converter with four gearsets and five clutches, and it’s lighter than the six-speed in the Stingray within the same space. Chevrolet states that the “wide-open-throttle upshifts executed up to eight-hundredths of a second quicker than the dual-clutch in the Porsche 911.” The ones that still want the “track” feel, the seven-speed manual will be fitted with a new dual-mas flywheel and dual-disc clutch.

Using the aluminum frame from the Corvette Raicing C7.R, the C7 Corvette Z06 will have some differences than the standard C7 Corvette Stingray. Cooling dictates flared fender, larger vents and wider wheels and tires. The tires are actually 1.5-inches wider in the front and 2.0-inches wider in the back than those on the Stingray. The car itself will be 2.2-inches wider in front and 3.15 inches wider in the back. These dimensions actually make the taillights have actually been pushed three inches further apart.

A Z07 package will also be available which will get you Pilot Sport Cup tires for enhanced gripping, Brembo’s carbon ceramic-matrix brake rotors that will help improve braking performance and contribute to greater handling and to reduce weight. This package also adds unique components for true aerodynamic downforce. The Z07 equipped car has already recorded faster track times than even the ZR1.

2014 Camaro Z/28 Starts at $75,000

2014 and 1967 Chevrolet Camaro Z28

Chevrolet has announced that the 2014 Camaro Z/28 will begin arriving at your Local Chevrolet Dealership this spring with a starting MSRP of $75,000.  That price includes the $995 destination charge, but does not include tax, title, license and dealer fees.

The Camaro Z/28 is a track car that is legal on the road – plain and simple.  With a 7.0L LS7 engine providing 505 horsepower and 481 lb-ft of torque, the Chevy Camaro Z/28 provides enough power, acceleration, and aerodynamics to produce faster lap times on Germany’s Nurburgring road course than the Porsche 911 Carrera S and the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640.

The Z/28 is available in 5 colors – Red Hot, Black, Silver Ice Metallic, Ashen Gray Metallic, and Summit White.  If there is one thing you should know about the Z/28, it is the fact that the Camaro Z/28 is a track car.  There is only one option on the car.  An $1,150 package that adds air conditioning and a total of six audio speakers.  The standard Z/28 comes with one speaker for the door chime (making it street legal).

The 2014 Camaro Z/28 is has only one transmission available.  A close-ratio, six-speed manual transmission which distributes power to the rear wheels through a Torsen limited-slip differential featuring a helical gear set, rather than traditional clutch packs.  Also on the Z/28 are 19-inch forged aluminum wheels and Pirelli PZero Trofeo R tires.  These tires represent the first production-car application in the industry and are believed to be the wides front tire on any production car.

As your 2014 Corvette Stingray Dealer, make sure you visit us at 221 Traffic Street in Bossier City, or online at www.RedRiverChevy.com.  Whether you are craving that Camaro Z/28 in Shreveport or Bossier City, LA we have you covered!
