Chevrolet’s 2016 Silverado Special Ops concept is based on the Silverado 1500 Z71, which features a new front-end design and new technologies built into its strong, high strength steel body structure and fully boxed frame, and draws its design inspiration from naval design aesthetics.

Camo Originally Used to Disguise Ships

The camo paint job on the 2016 Chevrolet Silverado Special Ops Edition was originally created more than 100 years ago to help conceal the speed and direction of Navy ships. Ironically, the paint is now being used to help the Special Ops truck stand out in a crowd while benefitting the Navy SEAL Museum, as well as the families of injured and killed SEALs. A portion of all proceeds from truck sales will go to benefit the museum as well as SEAL families. The vehicle was unveiled at the annual Army vs. Navy football game this year, as well as at the SEMA auto show in Las Vegas. Stop in at Chapman Chevrolet to check out the complete line of Silverados and see how you can get your hands on one of the Special Ops trucks.

Aftermarket Products Add to Special Flair

Chevy has utilized some aftermarket products available at any dealership to help make the Special Ops truck just a little more special. Beefy off-road tires that can handle any trail surround 20-inch aluminum wheels. A light bar in the bed is decked out with an LED array that will light up the darkest trail. A skid guard and rocker protection help keep the under carriage safe from rocks and brush. Locking storage boxes provide plenty of room for tools and gear in the bed. The truck is built on the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Z71 four-wheel drive. Inside, waterproof seat covers are emblazoned with a Special Ops logo.

Silverado High Country Trim Offers Luxury and Performance

If camo paint isn’t your thing, consider the High Country trim package. From the automatic running boards that extend when you open the door, to the sound-deadening package that makes traveling down a dirt road as quiet as a nunnery, Chevy has spared no expense in creating this truck. Premium leather trimmed seats with embroidered headrests, an array of technology at your fingertips and plenty of charging stations make this truck of the future an attractive choice today. Head over to Chapman Chevrolet today to experience the High Country package for yourself.

Silverado Build Starts With Safety

Every Chevrolet Silverado starts with a high-strength steel safety cage that surrounds the occupants and disperses the energy of a crash away from the cockpit. Six air bags are ready to provide front and side protection, while a number of automatic driver assistance safety features are available. Forward collision alert creates an audible warning in the event of a possible crash. Lane Keep Assist helps keep a tired driver focused when a vehicle is drifting. Front and Rear Park Assist helps you squeeze into tight spots and avoid minor fender benders.


National Test Drive Tests Technology

Participants recently completed a 171,252-mile “Find New Roads” trip sponsored by Chevrolet, with a goal of demonstrating how using OnStar technology can help drivers find their way both on daily commutes or on long cross country trips. All of the drivers were in 2016 Camaros and used OnStar to not only map their route to all 48 states, but also to book hotel rooms, find the closest gas station, pick a restaurant and basically accomplish all the needs of a person traveling across country. “The Find New Roads Trip was more than a national test drive on the all-new 2016 Camaro, it was a real world demonstration of Chevrolet’s commitment to connected technologies across our entire portfolio,” according to Chevy marketing manager Steve Majoros. Test drive the new Chevrolet Camaro, “Motor Trend’s” Car of the Year, with a visit to Chapman Chevrolet.

OnStar Verifies Drivers Visited all 48 States

Part of the road trip program was to verify communication can be used two ways. Not only did drivers use OnStar to find their way around and make traveling more convenient, but Chevy used the technology to ping all the vehicles and ensure they all made it to each state on the continental U.S. OnStar recorded hourly information from each Camaro for each of the four weeks the tour lasted. Chevy’s MyLink infotainment system was used on each Camaro to not only provide music and OnStar connectivity, but also for Apple CarPlay phone integration as well as providing a 4G LTE Wi-Fi connection. The Wi-Fi hotspot was so stable that drivers were able to video chat with family members who wanted to see their family member’s face, as well as the interior of the vehicle.

Road Trip Included Events Showing Off New Models

The tour included 16 events in different cities where new Chevrolet models were displayed for the thousands in attendance. Along with the new Camaro, Chevy displayed the Volt, Malibu, Equinox, Colorado diesel truck and the Silverado. Camaro designers were on hand to answer questions about the vehicle and Chevy provided giveaways, as well as VIP parking for people who drove Camaros to the events.

New Camaro Hits Home Run With Design Changes

By earning the coveted Car of the Year award from Motor Trend, the Chevrolet Camaro has already proven it’s a winner. A lowered cowl and subtle exterior changes provide a more aggressive look, but editors really loved the improved performance and handling. Take a test drive at Chapman Chevrolet and see what all the excitement is about.


New Design for 2016 Provides Bold Look

With modern, windswept styling, an aggressive front end and shortened distance between the roof and body sides, the totally redesigned 2016 Chevy Malibu makes a bold statement for people wanting an affordable midsize car. Starting at just $22,500, the new Malibu is both bigger and lighter than the previous model year. This translates into more interior room for previously cramped back seat passengers, along with greater fuel efficiency. Make sure you give the back seat a try when you take a trip to Chapman Chevrolet for your test drive.

Quality Materials Provide Comfortable Cabin

Sit in the cockpit of the new Malibu and you’re immediately impressed with both the layout of instruments and the quality of the trim material. A faux wood look gives a feeling of luxury, while adjustable seats with ample bolsters mold to the body for both support and comfort. A large touch screen also works by voice command, allowing you to focus on the road and still access your Apple CarPlay apps or change the radio station. Rear passengers get their own USB ports, along with both 12 and 120-volt outlets to charge their mobile devices.

Malibu Comes in Two Trim Levels

The 2016 Chevy Malibu comes in the base model and upscale Limited package. Chevy’s innovative wireless charging package, which also keeps your portable device cool, is available on both models. Both also have 4G LTE Wi-Fi and active safety technology available. Low Speed Front Automatic Braking and Lane Keep Assist help drivers avoid collisions, or at least lessen the severity of the collision if a wreck is unavoidable. With a strong steel safety cage and 10 air bags surrounding the passengers, the Malibu exceeds all safety requirements.

Keep Teen Safe When You’re Not in Car

One of the biggest worries for parents is unleashing a teen driver on the open road. By using the Chevrolet MyLink system with a secret pin number, you can utilize Teen Driver safety features to help keep everyone in the car safe. The system mutes the audio system until everyone in the front seat is wearing a seat belt, gives warnings when exceeding a set speed limit, keeps the music low, and lets the parents know if any active safety features have been engaged. Check out the new Malibu and all these safety features by taking a trip to Chapman Chevrolet.

$40 Million Investment Covers 38 Projects

By committing to a voluntary program to enable global climate change, Chevrolet has kept more than 8 million metric tons of harmful carbon dioxide from being dispersed into the atmosphere over the last 5 years. “Chevrolet launched this carbon-reduction initiative in 2010 when we debuted the Volt to demonstrate our commitment to a clean energy future,” according to Alan Batey, Chevy’s global brand chief. “Since then, our Volt customers have driven 700 million electric miles and renewable energy is powering nearly a tenth of our company’s U.S. energy consumption.” Along with the electric Volt, Chevy has a complete lineup of fuel efficient vehicles that deliver 30 or more miles per gallon. Stop by and take a test drive at your Phoenix Chevy dealer, Chapman Chevrolet.

Works With Colleges To Reduce Carbon Footprint

By purchasing up to $5 million of carbon credits, Chevrolet helped 11 colleges across the nation pay for carbon reductions and retire the credits, rather than use them to offset Chevrolet’s vehicle carbon footprint. The money goes to helping the students fund energy-efficient products. “As we kept inching closer to our carbon-reduction goal, we wanted to support colleges going above and beyond to help combat climate change, and open the door for other companies to contribute to such campus clean energy projects,” said GM director of sustainability, Greg Martin. The funds also helped colleges to save on energy bills and show students the way toward a clean energy future.

Chevy Partnership Projects Result in Carbon Savings

The 38 projects Chevrolet supported or actively engaged in ranged from a landfill gas project in Hurlock, MD to truck stop electrification in several states. Wind energy, forest sequestration and capturing coalbed methane were some other projects that received Chevrolet funding. “I don’t think I will see again in my professional lifetime the kind of leadership – the sheer scale, the investment, commitments, diversity of team –that Chevrolet pioneered with its carbon reduction initiative,” said Bob Sheppard, corporate sustainability consultant.

Chevrolet Walks the Walk When it Comes to Fuel Efficiency

From the electric Volt to the full size Impala, Chevy offers six cars that get more than 30 mpg on the highway. The midsize Malibu gets 36 mpg out on the open road, yet still has plenty of room for five adults to sit in comfort. Take a drive in the compact Cruze and you’ll see just how much fun you can have in a diesel that gets almost 50 mpg on the open road.
