Car Dealerships: The 2018 Chevrolet Bolt EV Makes All-Electric Driving Easy on the Pocketbook

The 2018 Bolt EV may not have been the pioneer in the ever growing electric car segment, but that is not to say that it has no claim to fame either. Chevy Bolt EV is perhaps one of the most economical long range all-electric vehicle on the road, yet still surprisingly ranks high in terms of fuel economy and horsepower. This year’s iteration is no different, with the Bolt’s base model remaining at a reasonable $37,495 price range.

Considering the monthly rise of prices in this particular market, this is good news for drivers who want to make the switch to an electric car or longtime fans who want an upgrade. Following are factors that make the 2018 Chevrolet Bolt EV from trusted car dealerships serving Portland, Oregon a smart buy.

Impressive Electric Range

Bolt EV is equipped with a very capable 60-kilowatt-hour nickel-rich lithium-ion battery pack that powers the 150-kilowatt electric motor under the hood. On a full charge, you’ll get an EPA estimated 238 miles. A Regen on Demand feature also helps conserve power to maximize the battery’s capabilities. By pulling the paddle on your steering wheel, you can safely slow down the car, without having to use the actual brake pedal. This allows the Bolt to convert energy into more electricity and then transfers it to the battery pack. Read more from this article: http://bit.ly/2GUtGIz

Chevrolet Offers Colorado Fans More Personalization Options with 2018’s Special Edition Trucks

Nobody can say that personalization takes a backseat when it comes to the 2018 Colorado. For its 100th year as a leading manufacturer of full-size pickups, Chevrolet went all out to give long time fans more choices. The 2018 Colorado’s baseline starts out with an already impressive set of features, including a GM-exclusive Duramax Turbo-Diesel Engine, a maximum 308 horsepower and available towing of up to 7,700 lbs, but its commemorative Special Editions go the extra mile. If you’re not one to settle for the norm, perhaps one of these choices will be more suited to your tastes.

Centennial Edition
With its unique stylings, there’s no doubt that the Colorado Centennial Edition is the star of the show for this model year. This Z71-off road capable truck sports heritage bowtie emblems, Centennial door badges, Centennial Edition badging and the signature Centennial Blue exterior. To tie in the look, Chevrolet has also added 18-inch wheels with monochromatic bowties, and chrome door handles, mirror caps, belt lines and tow hooks.
Midnight and Dusk Editions
The Colorado 2018 ZR2 debuts with the stunning Midnight and Dusk Editions. Featuring blacked out 17-inch 5-spoke wheels, Chevy bowties and sport bar with off-road LED lighting, Midnight and Dusk cut striking figures on any road. Both options come with offroad suspension, off-road rocker protection, 4-wheel disc brakes, front and rear electronic locking differential, multimatic shocks, and hill descent control. Midnight is also available in LT and Z71 options.
Redline Edition
For the first time ever, the Colorado gets a Redline Edition, complete with sporty red and black accents and a design that leans more towards urban. Officially released last Spring, Colorado Redline Edition comes with all black window trim, mirror caps, door and tailgate handles, bowties, grille and off-road assist steps. Red recovery hooks and 18-inch wheels with red accents gives it quite a strong presence.
Shoreline Edition
The Shoreline Edition is specifically designed for beach lovers. GearOn Tiered Storage Racks, a Thule Stand Up Paddle Board Carrier and premium all-weather floor liners are its most notable features. Though, that isn’t to say that its appearance is in anyway unremarkable. On the contrary, the Shoreline Edition is an awe-inspiring sight with limited colors, spray-in bedliner, body-color grille, as well as black door handles, mirrors, beltline moldings and bowtie emblems.
Whatever your preferences are in trucks, you can be sure that there’s a Colorado Special Edition that would be perfect for you. Car dealerships serving the Portland area can assist you if you need more customization options.

New Cars for Sale: Buyers Can’t Go Wrong with the 2018 Chevrolet Sonic

As cities continue to grow, more and more properties are being constructed at a rapid pace. However, despite the development of residential and commercial properties, parking still seems to be a big issue in urban areas. This definitely holds true even in Portland, forcing many people to park their vehicles on the street.

With the lack of parking continuing to be an issue, subcompact cars like the 2018 Chevrolet Sonic are becoming popular new cars for sale, especially among first-time car owners. Thanks to the shape and size of this class, parking in small and tight spaces becomes much easier. Additionally, weaving through roads where cars are parked on both sides becomes much more manageable.

Of course, it isn’t just the convenient size that makes the 2018 Chevrolet Sonic a popular choice in Portland and the surrounding areas. Here are several other advantages that Sonic owners enjoy:

Great Handling

Some people often note that driving a subcompact feels exactly like driving a smaller vehicle. This definitely isn’t a problem with the 2018 Sonic. This is largely thanks to a good engine and its incredibly responsive electric power steering. In fact, many owners and reviewers claim that the Sonic is surprisingly as composed, sturdy, and strong as larger compact and sedans. Given this, it’s not surprising that the Sonic was awarded the Most Dependable Small Car distinction by J.D. Power.  As it is with buying other new cars for sale, be sure to test drive the 2018 Sonic at a trusted dealership like Mcloughlin Chevrolet to see if you find the vehicle comfortable to maneuver.

Car Dealerships in Portland on What Makes the 2018 Corvette an Aerodynamic Marvel

To celebrate 65 years of the Corvette and its close ties to the exhilarating sport of racing, Chevrolet went through great lengths in further refining its already superb performance. The Grand Sport, in particular, comes with a LT1 V8 engine that yields up to 460 horsepower and 465 lb.-ft. of max torque. It also goes from 0-60 in only 3.6 seconds. Another available trim with the LT4 V8 offers up to 650 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque as well, but speed and power are not the only things that makes the 2018 Corvette a beast on the track. Its sophisticated exterior design has quite a big impact on its abilities, too.
This popular sports car graces the showroom floors of car dealerships in and around Portland, Oregon with a fresh look that incorporates a patented active aerodynamic system. The system consists of several aerodynamic-aid elements that will help control the movement of ambient airflow relative to the vehicle body. Said components would also adjust accordingly to the data fed into the system.

New Cars for Sale: The 2018 Chevrolet Impala Comes with Notable New Features

The 2018 Chevrolet Impala remains largely unchanged at first glance compared to last year’s model. It still resembles the design of the 2017 version and retains the same trim levels, but the new Impala actually has undergone quite an overhaul. GM made sure that the favorite full-size sedan rolled out with some new standard as well as exclusive (for select trim levels) features that made the Impala stand out from the rest of the new cars for sale. See how U.S. New’s Top pick for the Best Large Car for the Money can enhance your driving experience.

Touchscreen Display

Replacing the old and rather lackluster 4.7- inch stereo in the 2017 model is a brand new 8-inch diagonal color infotainment display. It’s part of the new Chevrolet MyLink Radio that’s standard on most trims, starting with the LS. This display also comes with a motorized hidden compartment that raises up from the dashboard, revealing a storage cubby, USB port for charging your mobile device and a compass display. The screen can also be locked in the down position with a PIN code.

Keyless Open and Start

Taking convenience one step further, Chevrolet also integrated a Keyless Open and Start system in the 2018 Impala. You no longer have to dig around your pocket for your keys if your hands are full. The keyless entry feature readily lets you in upon detecting the fob on your person. Starting the car also takes as much effort as sliding into the driver seat, pushing the start button and putting your foot on the brake in standard trims. Those who will opt for the LT trim will also get a remote vehicle starter system for added amenity. Read more from this article: http://bit.ly/2owOPls
