Snow and rain can cause even the most reliable vehicles (in other words, Chevys) to rust over time. If you are worried about rust, consider buying one of the four most rust-resistant Chevy models.
Chevy Bolt: The Bolt is notably rust-resistant. A key reason for its resistance to rust is the large use of plastic for many of its parts that are exposed to the elements. In addition, General Motors has done a fantastic job at using techniques to ensure all exposed metal parts are corrosion-proof, especially on the underside of the Bolt.
Chevy Sonic: Smaller vehicles specifically get rust-resistance attention from Chevy, which explains why the Sonic joins the Bolt on this list. The frame and body panels of the Sonic use formulated galvanized steel, which is resistant to rust.
Chevy Corvette: A lot of sports car owners hate to take their vehicles out in the rain. Even if you get caught in a rainstorm in your ‘Vette, you have little to worry about. The use of carbon and plastic in the Corvette make it especially resistant to rust.
Chevy Silverado: The Silverado is America’s longest-lasting and most dependable pickup truck, for many reasons. One of those reasons is its rust-resistance. Specifically, the 2014 model year is particularly rust-resistant.
With the introduction of the 2019 Blazer, Chevrolet is making a creative play within the competitive midsize SUV and crossovers segments. The new vehicle offers an array of customization options to drivers, allowing buyers to select design features and amenities that perfectly suit their driving preferences. With such a play, the 2019 Chevy Blazer adds a dash of fun to the packed, competitive field of crossovers and SUVs.
As Stave Majoros, the Chevrolet marketing director for Cars and Crossovers, stated, “The Blazer’s design offers customers a crossover that can exceed their needs, matching their unique personality. Blazer sets a new design language for Chevy’s crossover family and extends our momentum into one of the industry’s fastest-growing segments.”
The ability of a vehicle to suit different lifestyles and design preferences is no small feat, and the Blazer does so gracefully. For instance, the Blazer RS will offer a sophisticated look with black design elements and an overall sporty, yet street-savvy look. The Premier edition, on the other hand, delivers a more luxurious air and upscale ride.
Alongside these options for personalization, the Blazer delivers an impressive array of standard features. The Blazer offers state-of-the-art performance, connectivity, and safety features, providing you with a modern driving experience. To further elevate your ride, you can opt for available features like a panoramic dual-pane power sunroof, heated/ventilated front seats and a heated steering wheel, and an array of active safety features.
The new Chevrolet Bolt EV has generated an incredible amount of interest in the past few months. Business is booming, and the production lines are struggling to meet consumer demand. As a result, General Motors is opting to increase production of the Bolt EV by 20 percent for the upcoming quarter.
Sales of the Chevrolet Bolt EV are up 40 percent in the first half of 2018. The electric crossover saw more than 7,858 units leave dealership lots between January and June, effectively outselling top competitors.
The Bolt EV is currently produced at the Lake Orion facility in Michigan. Production isn’t quite keeping up with demand, though, prompting executives to ramp up the operation. The electric crossover has officially begun outselling its electric sedan sibling, the Volt.
“The extra production coming on line should be enough to help us keep growing global Bolt EV sales,” said Kurt McNeil, GM U.S. vice president of sales and operations.
The new Chevrolet Bolt EV is leading the charge in more than just eco-friendly travel. The model is a self-driving car prototype from Cruise Automation, the GM arm for autonomous driving.
The current Chevrolet Bolt EV launched in California in 2016. The existing electric crossover features an EPA-estimated 238-mile driving range on a single charge.* Innovative systems, such as one-pedal driving and electronic precision shift, streamline traveling in the 2018 Bolt EV.
According to Chevy, the 2019 Blazer will have seating for five people and 64.2 cubic feet of maximum cargo space with the seats down. There’s an available cargo-management system and an optional panoramic dual-pane power sunroof, and smart features like an available Hitch View help you see as you tow and haul.
“Chevrolet has been at the forefront of each of the major automotive industry trends by anticipating consumer demand and delivering innovative products like Bolt EV, Colorado and Trax,” said Alan Batey, president of GM North America and head of Global Chevrolet. “The introduction of the all-new Blazer builds on that momentum and further strengthens the most comprehensive lineup of crossovers and SUVs on the market today.”
The exterior design is one of the most striking aspects of the new Blazer. It has an athletic stance, muscular contours, and sleek lights. Dual exhaust outlets add sporty appeal, while LED daytime running lights provide better visibility.
Have you ever wanted to zoom past your fellow drivers on the highway in a race car? Well, now may be your chance. The Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R race car is now available to the public, but it does come with a hefty price tag.

The pure-action race car features all of the racing specifications a driver could ask for, including a 21-way adjustable carbon fiber rear wing. The doors, front fascia, front dive planes, and front splitter are all made from carbon fiber as well.
Designed for the action of the track, the Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R race car boasts Brembo® braes, two-way adjustable Ohlin® dampers, and antiroll bars. The race car rolls out on athletic 18-inch wheels.
The Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R race car has taken home trophies in the Pirelli World Challenge Series and the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge Series.
Earlier this summer, Chevrolet released information surrounding the new Traverse, specifically its price. According to Chevy, 2018 Traverse pricing will start at $30,875 MSRP. This price includes the destination charge (i.e., the cost to get the Traverse from the factory to our lot here at Gjovik Chevy Buick GMC), but does not include tax, title, and other fees.
When the 2018 Traverse arrives on our lot, you’ll have your choice among several well-equipped trims, including the L, LS, LT, Premier, RS, and High Country. The Premier trim will also be available with the Redline package.
The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse offers best-in-class maximum cargo space (98.2 cubic feet) and also boasts more passenger space (with seating for up to eight) than the competition. Standard features are abound on the Traverse, including the following:
Active noise cancellation
Automatic tri-zone climate control
Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility
Rear camera mirror
Surround Vision cameras
23 unique storage spots for passenger belongings
Teen Driver technology
Keyless Open and Start
These features and more make the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse one of the most coveted new SUVs to hit roads this year.
“The all-new Chevrolet Traverse has a bold, new look that complements the full functionality our SUV customers demand. It’s designed to help make life on the road easier, and to look good while doing it,” remarked Steve Majoros, director of marketing, Chevrolet Cars and Crossovers. “With creature comforts, convenience features and technologies to entertain passengers, Traverse is the total package.”
48 years ago, in July of 1969, astronauts took their first steps out of the Apollo 11 and onto the surface of the moon. This was a momentous occasion not only for all of humankind, but also for General Motors in particular, who would later have the opportunity to watch their technology – in the form of the Lunar Rover – be used to explore an alien environment no human had previously seen in person. This year, in honor of the moon landing, Chevrolet celebrated that time-honored achievement by honoring one of their modern innovations: the Chevrolet Bolt.
Why? The Lunar Rover, unlike any mainstream vehicles on the road at the time, was electric. With a 57-mile range, a top speed of 8.7 mph, and the use of antennas for communication, the Lunar Rover was a far cry from the Bolt, which gets up to 238 miles on a single charge, and offers a top speed of 92 mph along with connectivity tech over its OnStar 4G LTE hot spot. That’s quite a leap from the Rover’s capabilities nearly five decades ago.
The chief engineer of the Lunar Rover, Ferenc Pavlics, still remembers how his team broke ground to tackle a project never previously imagined and sees how it paved the way for EVs like the Bolt. “We pushed the boundaries of automotive technology,” says Pavlics, “and worked hand in hand with the astronauts on the vehicle’s design.”
There aren’t many midsize pickup trucks that offer an abundance of off-road features, making the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 a much-loved anomaly in the industry. Starting at $2,000 less than the nearest competitor, the new Colorado ZR2 packs in a vast array of standard off-roading features designed to take the avenger weekend and make it spectacular.
There’s a lot to love in the new Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, like the standard V6 engine that delivers a thrilling 306 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. That engine comes paired with a smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission.
There’s also an available 2.8-liter turbo-diesel engine that produces an impressive 186 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. That powertrain comes complete with a six-speed automatic transmission.
No matter the powertrain, the new 2017 Colorado ZR2 features standard four-wheel drive, 31-inch off-road tires, a two-inch lifted suspension, and much more.
Drivers will enjoy advanced safety features, including a rear vision camera and electronic automatic cruise control. A standard aluminum skidplate protects critical components from rough terrain.
As for entertainment, the new Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 features a standard six-speed audio system, eight-inch touchscreen, and access to Chevrolet MyLink.
We here at Gjovik Chevrolet are ready to roll in the new Colorado ZR2 off-road pickup!
The Verizon IndyCar Series largely revolves around high speeds and insane acceleration. One factor that makes a major difference is the aerodynamic kits and engines the cars are outfitted with, and Chevrolet recently signed a contract that extended its partnership with the Verizon IndyCar Series as a major parts provider.
Chevrolet’s signing of a contract extension comes at the same time as many other major brands. Honda signed a deal as well; meanwhile, Dallara signed on to continue to be the chassis supplier and Firestone signed on as the tire supplier.
The IndyCar Series plans to revise the rulebook to allow for an all-new chassis designed to bear a much more attractive look. The new chassis will also change air flow, allowing for closer racing.
“It’s another sign of the positive momentum we continue to build as we grow this sport into the next decade,” said Jay Frye, IndyCar president of operations.
While Chevrolet and Honda may be competing automakers, they do share something in common. Both Chevrolet’s director of motorsports and Honda’s president of performance development want to see more automakers join the Verizon IndyCar Series.
Chevrolet’s signing of a multi-year contract solidifies the brand’s involvement in the IndyCar Series for the foreseeable future.
We here at Gjovik Chevrolet are happy to see Chevrolet extending its affiliation with the Indy Car Series!
Some automakers are turning a blind eye to diesel sedans following recent events, but Chevrolet is doing the opposite. The American automaker hasn’t done a great job keeping the new 2017 Chevrolet Cruze diesel sedan a secret. Small bits of information have been leaking over the past few months and now the automaker has confirmed the new model via a pricing announcements.
The new Chevrolet Cruze diesel sedan will start at $24,670 with a six-speed manual transmission. Drivers have the option to choose a nine-speed automatic transmission instead for a higher price.
The second-generation diesel-powered Cruze will boast a 1.6-liter turbodiesel four-cylinder engine that produces an estimated 136 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque. While Chevrolet hasn’t released official specifications, the same engine is used in a similar vehicle in Europe. Expect the engine to earn somewhere in the realm of 40 mpg on the highway as well.
The American automaker hasn’t released any pricing details on the Cruze hatchback diesel variant just yet. Expect that announcement sometime in the near future. For now, relish the fact that we’re officially getting a new Chevrolet Cruze diesel sedan for the 2017 model year.
Here at Gjovik Auto, we’re pumped for the official release of the new Chevrolet Cruze diesel sedan!
