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.

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!

2014 Chevrolet Silverado Unveiled!

2014-chevrolet-silverado-ltz-001

Chevrolet has finally shown the new 2014 Silverado to the public, and from what we can see here at Red River Chevrolet, it looks to be another great truck!  As always, we will keep all of you up to date on the new 2014 Silverado here in Shreveport, LA and Bossier City, LA!

For starters, the new 2014 Chevy Silverado will feature 3 brand new engines, the EcoTec3 4.3L V6, a 5.3L V8 and a 6.2L V8 each which have been completely redesigned.  These will include the direct injection fuel systems, smaller combustion chamber that gives a compression ratio of 11:1 or higher, variable valve timing, cylinder deactivation and much more!  Fuel economy numbers have not been released yet, but GM is confident that they will beat the competition.

The 2014 Chevy Silverado itself features numerous enhancements.  The design of the 2014 Silverado is not only about looks, but also about function and aerodynamics.  The front end of the truck is designed to improve sealing for more efficient cooling, while the roof and tailgate spoiler were shaped to smooth airflow over the truck to help reduce drag.  The new flush-fitting doors help reduce wind noise in the cabin as well as to reduce drag to provide more efficiency.

The bed of the truck has also undergone some changes.  Chevrolet has added a corner step built in to the bumper combined with handholds built in the new box rail protectors to allow easier access into the bed of the truck.  The bed is also available with LED lighting under the bed rails to help while working at night.

For the first time Silverado 1500 Crew Cabs will be available with the longer 6’6” bed box, as well as the 5’8” bed box that is currently on the Silverado Crew Cab models.

The 2014 Silverado will feature the all new Chevrolet MyLink system which will help Silverado Customers utilize their smartphones while they are driving and provide a much more user friendly experience with the infotainment system in their vehicle.  The MyLink system brings voice recognition and numerous ports and power outlets to support multiple devices.

The cab in the Silverado is actually made stronger with nearly two-thirds of the structure made from high-strength steel to provide improved safety for the passengers.  Shear-style body mounts, hydraulic body mounts, and many other NVH (Noise Vibration and Harshness) enhancements all help to reduce noise in the cab and make the new Silverado one of the quietest in the segment.

Some of the other features that the new 2014 Silverado will include is the segment exclusive Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning with an Active Safety Seat and Rear Park Assist.  The new Silverado will also include Stabilitrak with Trailer Sway Control and Hill Start Assist.

The all-new 2014 Silverado has numerous upgrades and improvements, too many for me to mention all of them here, but to learn more, check out the video of the unveil below.

Silverado HD, Volt, and Tahoe among “Best Value”!

More good news comes to Chevrolet!  The Chevrolet Volt, the Chevy Silverado 2500HD and the Chevrolet Tahoe were named segment winners in Vincentric’s 2012 Best Value in America!

This award is given to vehicles that have particularly low ownership costs and will also take into account everything from fuel costs, insurance and repairs and maintenance costs.  It also takes into consideration that these vehicles have a very low deprication value, which means that they hold their value longer!  That is good news!  Not only were those three vehicles named the winners, but also some of Chevrolet’s other makes such as the Chevy Avalanche along with the Silverado 1500 were very near the top.  As a result, Chevrolet as a whole was named the NO. 1 truck brand overall for value.
