Find Your Tag, Make a Deal

Head on over to Chapman Chevrolet in Tempe during Chevy Truck Month to score big cash back allowances on some of America’s most popular trucks and large SUVs. All you need to do is find the gold “Chevy Bonus Tag” hanging from the rear view mirror to see the exact amount of cash back available on a particular vehicle. Cash back ranges from $3,500 on Chevy Silverado HD to $5,500 on select 2017 Silverado 1500 Crew Cab trucks. Cash back is also available on Chevy’s two premiere SUVs, the full-size Tahoe and Suburban. Get $4,500 back on select models of either of these two vehicles. You’d better hurry though, because Truck Month cash back is based on taking delivery by March 31.

Silverado Highest Ranked in Initial Quality

JD Power has named the Chevy Silverado as the “Highest Ranked Large Light Duty Pickup in Initial Quality” for the past two consecutive years. During Truck Month, qualified buyers can get 0 percent APR for 60 months in addition to the $5,500 cash back on select models. The Silverado’s new muscular front-end design provides a bold look with a sculpted hood and aggressive stance. Right now the Silverado offers a number of special editions which have been featured prominently during commercials of the NCAA basketball tournament.

Tahoe Offers Spacious Seating Refined in Every Way

The full-size Chevy Tahoe SUV is a popular choice among families and people who need a bigger vehicle for hauling and towing. The available power-release seats in the second row make accessing the third row a snap. Fold the third row seats flat for a whopping 94.7 cubic feet of space for hauling. Chevy has gone all out with sound-deadening materials to keep outside noise where it belongs, utilizing a laminated windshield and triple seals on the doors. The Tahoe is also loaded with technology, offering up to seven USB ports and an available wireless charging station. OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi keeps all your electronics connected out on the road.

Suburban Remains King of the Road

As the longest-running production vehicle in the history of the American auto industry, the Chevy Suburban delivers the room, power and comfort to make those long road trips with the family an enjoyable memory. There’s room in all three rows for people to spread out in a Suburban and enjoy their own space, whether they’re reading a book or using a fast Wi-Fi connection to watch a movie. With 121.7 cubic feet of cargo space, the Suburban is definitely the king when it comes to hauling people and things. Test drive the most iconic American SUV in history by taking a trip to Chapman Chevrolet in Tempe.

Chevy Owners Gobbling Up Data

Although in-vehicle Wi-Fi hasn’t been around for long, Chevy customers are gobbling up the data available with the OnStar 4G LTE hotspot. Chevrolet owners used more than 4 million gigabytes of streaming data for music, video and information in 2016, a fact that did not go unnoticed in the Chevrolet executive offices. “We have contractors bidding jobs in their Silverados, families streaming movies in their Suburbans and Malibus and everyone tapping into the cloud for music,” according to GM president Alan Batey. “With the most affordable unlimited 4G LTE data plan in the auto industry, the widest availability of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and new connected services like OnStar AtYourService, our momentum can only grow.” Chevy now offers an unlimited prepaid data plan for just $20 per month, letting customers stop using their expensive phone data streams as hotspots. The plan is across the entire Chevrolet lineup, which you can examine in great detail at Chapman Chevrolet.

Data Use Up 200 Percent

When comparing to 2015, the data usage in a Chevrolet was 200 percent higher in 2016. The last six months of 2016 showed as much usage as the previous 24 months combined. The entire year of data usage was the equivalent of 17.5 million video hours, or watching the movie “Frozen” approximately 8.75 million times. “We’re pleased to deliver this special unlimited data plan to Chevy owners,” said the president of AT&T’s IoT solutions division, Chris Penrose. “Accessing the Internet through AT&T’s 4G LTE Wi-Fi, passengers can now access all of their content and enjoy endless entertainment on the go.”

OnStar Standard on All Chevy Models

Peruse the lot at Chapman Chevrolet and you’ll find that the OnStar basic service comes standard on all new cars, trucks and SUVs. Aside from the basic plan, OnStar offers three different levels of service that can be purchased monthly or for a yearly discount. The Guidance plan is the most comprehensive, offering navigation, advisor support and 30 hands-free calling minutes per month. The Guidance plan also includes all the features of both the Security and Protection plans. The Protection plan delivers automatic crash response, emergency services, roadside assistance, remote access, advanced diagnostics and advisor support. The Security plan includes all that, plus theft alarm notification, stolen vehicle slowdown and remote ignition block. The free Basic plan includes the ability access certain vehicle functions from your smartphone, a monthly diagnostics report, proactive alerts and more.

Gives Range of 702 Miles on Single Tank

Although your passengers may gulp at the thought of driving more than 700 miles without a single bathroom break, that’s the distance now possible with the introduction of the Chevy Cruze Diesel Sedan. The new Cruze Diesel has an EPA-estimated highway figure of 52 mpg, which is more than any other non-electrified vehicle. “Chevrolet is dedicated to offering customers a wide range of propulsion options,” said Chevy director of marketing Steven Majoros. “We know there are customers looking for the right combination of fuel efficiency, driving dynamics, fuel type and more. With the EPA-estimated 52-mpg high Cruze Diesel Sedan, they can get it all.” The Chevy Cruze Diesel Sedan will be coming to Chapman Chevrolet soon. Stay in touch so you can be the first in line for a test drive.

Cruze Powered by Four-cylinder Diesel

The new Cruze Diesel features a 1.6L four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine that delivers a certified 137 horsepower. More importantly, it also produces a powerful 240 pound-feet of torque, meaning you’ll have plenty of acceleration when it comes time to get on the freeway or get quickly around a slow-moving vehicle. The 52 mpg highway rating comes with the six-speed manual transmission, which also delivers an outstanding 30 mpg in the city. Choose the nine-speed automatic and the mileage drops slightly to 47 on the highway, but increases to 31 in the city. The starting price for the Chevy Cruze Diesel Sedan is just $24,670, lower than similarly equipped hybrids and much less than electric vehicles. A diesel hatchback will follow the release of the sedan in time for the 2018 model year.

Gas-powered Cruze Offers Enticing Options

If you want to save a few thousand and still get excellent gas mileage, the gas-powered Chevy Cruze hatchback and sedan are available now at Chapman Chevrolet. With a rating of 40 mpg on the highway, the gas-powered Cruze is still operating in hybrid territory but at a starting price under $17,000. Both the sedan and hatch offer a sporty design, loads of technology and superior performance and handling, making them perfect choices for an urban commuter or a teen’s first car. Available 4G LTE Wi-Fi means your new Cruze is a rolling hot spot, keeping you and your passengers in constant connection with the news of the day.

Safety First a Good Idea for Teen Drivers

The new Chevy Cruze offers the Teen Driver system as an option, helping ensure your young driver makes it home safely. The system makes sure all seat belts are buckled before the stereo system goes on, and can even deliver reports on where and how fast the vehicle was driven. A number of driver assistance safety features will help your young driver avoid a collision as they figure out the ins and outs of safe driving.
