2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Rally Edition

2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Rally Edition

Elizabeth City NC – By opting for one of two new Rally Edition packages, customers can now order a 2015 Chevrolet Silverado from Performance Chevrolet that boast a sporty attitude.

“Historically, Rally Sport packages lent a sporty flair to many popular Chevrolet models,” says Chris Perry of Performance Chevrolet. “These new Rally Edition Silverado models build on that legacy, infusing the new 2015 Silverado with both extra content and a new attitude.”

The Rally 2 Edition package for 2015 Silverado LT double-cab and crew-cab pickups features a body-colored grille with a black bowtie, 22-inch black alloy wheels, black tubular side steps and black mirror caps and door handles. Twin black Rally stripes on the hood and tailgate give the Rally Edition a unique appearance.

Also included with the Rally 2 is a trailering package, which includes a hitch and an automatic locking rear differential; a 10-way power driver seat, dual-zone climate control; remote start; backup camera and rear defroster. The eight-inch Chevy MyLink radio includes a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot with 4G LTE connectivity.

The standard engine for Silverado is a 4.3L Ecotec3 V-6. 285-horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque, providing up to 7,200 pounds of towing, based on SAE J2807 Recommended Practices. Like all EcoTec3 engines, the V-6 can seamlessly switch to four-cylinder mode to save fuel under light-load driving, delivering EPA highway estimates of up to 24 miles per gallon.

Also available is a 5.3L Ecotec3 V-8. Rated at 355 horsepower, it provides the best fuel economy of any V-8 pickup, up to 23 mpg EPA highway.

Silverado will also offer two Rally 1 packages for 2015. The package for LT Silverados includes a body-colored grill with a black bowtie, black door handles and mirror caps, stripes and 17-inch aluminum wheels. Also included is a trailering package with a hitch and locking rear differential, rear defroster and backup camera.

Valet Mode Lets 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Owners Breathe Easier

Corvette Valet Mode

Elizabeth City, NC If the thought of handing the keys to your beloved vehicle to a valet attendant is coupled with anxiety, there’s good news: the new Valet Mode feature in the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette not only keeps belongings safe, but gives owners a way to keep tabs on their vehicular pride and joy.

“With great power, like that found in the new 2015 Corvette, should come great responsibility,” says Jimmie Ritter from Performance Chevrolet. “Unfortunately, not every ‘parking professional’ entrusted to move your vehicle lives up to that expectation. The new Valet Mode in the 2015 Corvette gives owners additional peace of mind by letting them see what happens once someone else slides behind the wheel.”

The industry-exclusive system allows drivers to lock the interior storage, disable the infotainment system and record video, audio and vehicle data when the Valet Mode is active.

Introduced in 2014, the Corvette Valet Mode is turned on through the settings menu and activated by entering a unique four-digit code. A confirmation entry of the code simultaneously locks the storage bin behind the center stack display, the glove box and turns off the stereo.

With the introduction of the industry-first Performance Data Recorder for 2015, Corvette drivers can also record HD-video, in-car audio, and vehicle data – including speed, engine RPM, gear position and g-force – when Valet Mode is active.

The video can be viewed instantly on the Corvette’s eight-inch color touchscreen when the car is parked, or downloaded to a computer.

The Performance Data Recorder, or PDR, system was developed with Cosworth, the British motorsports-engineering company that supplies the Corvette Racing team’s data acquisition and telemetry electronics systems.

The system includes three major components. First is a 720p, high-definition camera mounted within the windshield header trim, which records the driver’s point-of-view through the window. Audio is recorded via a dedicated microphone in the cabin.

Second is a self-contained telemetry recorder. The system utilizes a dedicated GPS receiver and is hardwired into the Stingray’s Controller Area Network to access vehicle information.

Finally, the system features a dedicated SD-card slot in the glove box for recording and transferring video and vehicle data. An 8-gigabyte card can record approximately 200 minutes of driving time.

Valet mode with the Performance Data Recorder will be available on all 2015 Corvette models. Look for the 2015 Corvette range to arrive at Performance Chevrolet later this year.

Sonic Named Kelley Blue Book 10 Best Back-to-School Car

Sonic Named Kelley Blue Book 10 Best Back-to-School Car

Elizabeth City, NC – The Chevrolet Sonic, available at Performance Chevrolet, the only subcompact car made in America, is again one of the 10 Best Back-to-School Cars of 2014 chosen by Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com. For the third year in a row, the Sonic was recognized by the editors at KBB.com for its practicality, affordability, style, features and personality.

“The Sonic is ideal for students, offering technology and connectivity, safety and economy in a stylish affordable package,” says Jimmie Ritter of Performance Chevrolet. “This recognition shows that the Chevrolet brand is committed to the subcompact segment and continues to offer young drivers great options.”

The Sonic is the only car on the list built in America and is the only domestic model included. It is assembled at General Motors’ Orion Assembly plant in Orion Township, Mich.

Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com touted the Sonic in the past for its stylish appearance and exciting performance, while still focusing on safety with 10 airbags and fuel efficiency with 40 mpg highway.

An advanced safety package including forward collision alert and lane departure warning – crash-avoidance technologies typically found on more expensive vehicles – is also available on all but base Sonic models, as well as a rear vision camera.

For the 2015 model year, the Sonic will add standard OnStar with 4G LTE and a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, which provides a mobile hub for drivers and passengers to stay connected. The hotspot is on whenever the car is on and comes with a three-month/three-gigabyte data trial.

With the Sonic’s Siri Eyes Free integration, students with a compatible iPhone running iOS6 or iOS7 can direct Siri to perform a number of tasks through the available MyLink infotainment system while they safely keep their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel. Drivers also can use their smartphone to drive navigation through the MyLink system with the available BringGo navigation app, and listen to their favorite radio station nationwide through the available TuneIn application.
