2014 Z28 Camaro Unveiled along with 2014 Camaro

2014camaro

Today, Chevrolet introduced the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro at the New York Auto Show.  The 2014 Camaro looks to boast a few changes from the previous year model.  With all of the new vehicles from Chevrolet for the 2014 year, it is hard to keep up with all of them!  Just after the unveil of the new 2014 Stingray and now the Corvette Stingray Convertible, the next exciting thing from Chevrolet is this 2014 Chevy Camaro!

The 2014 Camaro has subtle changes and it begins with the front fascia featuring a larger lower opening for increased cooling and to reduce drag.  The rear has also been redesigned for greater aerodynamics and balance.  As you will notice, the rear end of the Camaro has also been changed up a bit for the 2014 year.  There is a new rear spoiler as well as new tail lights.  The lights seems to lose some of the retro-look, however they still have the squared-off look.  Lastly, as talked about in the video, the car will feature performance seats from the well-known company Recaro.

2014 Z28 Camaro

A car that we had no idea was coming back was also introduced at the New York Auto Show – the legendary Z28 that most of us all remember.  This track-built car is expected to have 500HP with 470 lb. ft. of torque with its high revvy naturally aspirated LS7 small-block V8.

Along with the muscle in this car, the engineers as Chevrolet have attempted to remove significant weight from the car.  Although we don’t know exactly how much weight has been removed, we do know some of the things they decided to remove.  For starters, the carpet and insulation in the trunk has been removed.  The use of thinner glass in the rear windows has also been used to reduce weight.  Air conditioning will be optional.  Also, all of the speakers have been removed except for one, and that one is only in there because it has to be to function the chime for the seatbelts.

Chevrolet describes the 2014 Z28 as a street legal track car that not everyone will want, but the ones that do want it will be getting a great engineered vehicle!

Here at your Bossier City Chevrolet Dealership, we are excited to hear of its return!  We promise to get pictures up of one just as soon as we get our first one!  If you have any questions or need anything from us, please feel free to reach out to us at 318-59-7500 or online at www.RedRiverChevy.com.

Introducing the 2013 Chevy Malibu Eco

The 2013 Chevy Malibu has arrived at Red River Chevrolet!  It is a great looking car!  It has been all redesigned!  Come on down and check out the new car!  I think you will be pleasantly surprised at how well this thing looks!  We actually just go a White Diamond 2013 Malibu (Similar to the above picture) in, so if you are in the area, stop on in!

Below are a few things that the new 2013 Chevrolet Malibu Eco offers.  Keep in mind, that these are just a few of them and there are actually a ton more than this!  To get the full effect of just how great this car is, come on down to Red River Chevrolet and check it out for yourself!

eAssist


eAssist is a state-of-the-art technology that allows the vehicle to conserve power when the vehicle does not need it.  Basically what the car does, when it is stopped, coasting downhill, or parked for whatever other reason, the engine will switch over to its lithium-ion battery to power all the accessories and components within the car.  This gives you an impressive 25MPG city and 37 MPG on the highway!

Regenerative Braking


The lithium ion battery that powers the eAssist does NOT need to be charged!  This car features regenerative braking which will capture the energy lost when braking and convert it over to electricity to store inside the battery for when it is needed.  This is one less thing to worry about on this vehicle!

Aerodynamics

The entire car is designed for efficiency.  The 2013 Malibu Eco has Aero Grille Shutters which guide the airflow seamlessly around the body of the vehicle to increase fuel efficiency and create less drag and resistance.  This car actually has a segment first, Grille Shutters, that electronically open and close when needed.  When the car temperature allows, the shutters will close increasing the car’s aerodynamics.

Eco Guage

The 2013 Chevrolet Malibu also features a gauge within the dash cluster that tells how eco-friendly a person is driving.  Because fuel efficiency and the like will all depend on how the car is being driven, the car can actually help you determine the best way to drive the car to get the most miles per gallon.

Low Rolling Resistance Tires


Every aspect of this car has been designed to increase its fuel efficiency.  Even the tires on this car are low rolling-resistance that helps the car drive with less friction and less weight.  The 17” wheels are made from a lightweight aluminum to further help.

580 HWY MILES ON ONE TANK!

Interior

The 2013 Malibu Eco has also been redesigned in the inside!  There is now more passenger room, along with added ambient accent lighting spread throughout the vehicle.  You can get chrome, wood grain, or metallic accents to add a level of detail and class to the interior of the vehicle making it really easy on the eyes!  Acoustic laminated glass and triple door seals help keep the noise outside, outside.

Chevrolet MyLink

Chevrolet MyLink is designed to be an easy to use interface.  This is why MyLink offers voice command, touch screen, center stack buttons, as well as steering wheel controls.  Convenience and comfort was at the top when the engineers thought of the design for the entertainment system in the 2013 Malibu.  With apps available and the flexibility of MyLink to each individual person, you can customize your entertainment to what you use most of.

Father and Son Bonding Time!

Red River Chevrolet

Nothing compares to the quality time between a father and his son.  After all, it is those times that shape the boy for what he will become when he is a man.  Here at Red River Chevrolet, we love nothing more than to see a father and his son enjoying some good quality time in a super-fast car!!

Take a look at this video of a father that took his son to Autocross and strapped him into the passenger seat (with the proper safety equipment) and went for a quick spin!!

If you think that looks like fun, then why not come on down to Red River Chevrolet and pick up your own Corvette Z06 or how about a Corvette ZR1?!  We can get you set up real nicely!  🙂
