With technology derived from the Lunar Rover moon missions, the new Chevy Bolt Electric Vehicle (EV) is now ready to make a giant leap for mankind in the field of alternative energy transportation. The Bolt has finally arrived on the showroom floor at Chapman Chevrolet. Ready for your inspection and test drive, the Bolt offers unprecedented range, sporty handling and an overall driving performance that made it Motor Trend’s Car of the Year.

Outside the Box Thinking

When Ferenc Pavlics and his project team created the Lunar Rover more than 45 years ago, they problems they were solving for astronauts would one day be helpful for an everyday driver on Earth. “When our team began engineering for the Lunar Rover, there were so many unknowns, including varied terrain, extreme temperatures and the effect of reduced gravity,” Pavlics said. “We pushed the boundaries of automotive technology.” The Chevrolet design team is doing the same with the Bolt, solving problems of weight and power to make electrification an bonafide transportation option. “The Bolt EV required a new architecture to upend the status quo on electric driving,” according to Bolt chief engineer Michael Lelli. “We drew on our deep electrification expertise to provide Chevrolet customers the first long-range, affordable electric car.”

Tax Credits Keep Price Down

Depending on your individual tax situation, federal incentives of the Bolt can add up to $7,500 off the starting sticker price of $37,495. Considering you’ll be driving by gas stations during your daily commute, that all adds up to tremendous savings. With an estimated 238 miles of range on a single charge, the Chevy Bolt offers the average commuter the ability to do their daily trips for up to a week without needing to bring the battery back to full power. Standard features on the new Bolt include a 10.2-inch color touchscreen which controls the infotainment system and relays important vehicle information. Choose the Premier model and you get leather upholstery, heated seats all around and a surround vision camera that gives you a bird’s eye view of your vehicle.

Learn a New Way to Drive

With the color touchscreen constantly updating you on energy usage, you’ll find yourself in a personal competition to squeeze every last drop of power out of your new Chevy Bolt. The Regen on Demand paddle on your steering wheel lets you slow down without hitting the brakes. It also converts the stopping power into electricity to top off your battery. One-pedal driving lets you slow down dramatically by lifting your foot off the gas, although the brake is always an option if you need to stop quickly. Swing by Chapman Chevrolet today and see how the new Bolt is changing the face of modern transportation.

The Rally Sport Truck (RST) Special Edition is now available on the popular Chevy Suburban and Tahoe, offering a package that delivers magnetic ride control, a 420-horsepower V8 engine and Chevy’s latest innovation, a 10-speed ultra-efficient automatic transmission. “Chevrolet has continually invested in Tahoe and Suburban, developing models with varying combinations of capability, technology and performance to meet the needs of different customers,” according to Chevy Truck marketing director Sandor Piszar. “The RST is designed for customers who want a street performance look without sacrificing capability or refinement, along with the option of increased performance as well.” The specially-equipped Chevy Tahoe and Suburban RST will be available at Chapman Chevrolet this fall.

Body Color Trim Replaces Chrome

Responding to customer demands for a more “street credible” look, Chevy has taken away much of the chrome in the RST package and replaced it with body color accents accentuated with black effects. A gloss-black grille, window trim, roof rails and badging provide a street performance look, accentuated by the iconic Chevy bowtie in all black. Choose the RST Tahoe or Suburban and you can get an available Borla exhaust system that improves exhaust flow by 28 percent for increased acceleration and fuel efficiency. Choose the Brembo brake package and you’ll get the ability to stop as quickly as you accelerate, with massive six-piston aluminum calipers clamping onto oversized rotors.

First Time for 6.2L V8

If you’ve been wanting a Chevy Tahoe with more horsepower and towing capacity than ever before, the RST package is the right choice. This is the first time the 6.2L V8 has ever been offered on the Tahoe. It not only produces 420 horspower, but creates a whopping 460 pound-feet of torque, more than enough to get your boat or camping trailer started at the bottom of a long hill. By pairing the massive motor with the new 10-speed transmission, both the Tahoe and Suburban get the most out of each gear as you shift smoothly up to cruising speed. “When you want to hustle, it is incredibly fast, with significantly higher levels of acceleration, braking and road-holding grip,” according to Chevy chief engineer Eric Stanczak. “When you want to relax, it is very refined, with exceptional ride comfort and interior quietness.”

Tahoe, Suburban Most Popular Full-size SUVs

The Chevy Tahoe and Suburban sit alone at the top of the full-size SUV market in America, accounting for almost half of all sales in that category. Owners of these two popular vehicles are also among the most loyal in the auto industry, coming back to buy the same vehicle 79 percent of the time. See why these two giants of the industry are so popular today by taking a test drive at Chapman Chevrolet.
