The New 2016 Camaro Offers Three New Engine Choices
The is the first entry into an all-new generation of the iconic sports car. For the new generation, Chevy is rolling out a completely reengineered car that should be lighter, faster, with better handling, and more fun. Part of the fun of driving the Camaro is picking which engine you’ll have under the hood. For the first time, the Camaro will offer a small turbocharged four-cylinder, alongside more traditional six-cylinder and eight-cylinder offerings. Continue reading to learn about the three different engines you’ll have to choose from. [http://www.homewoodchevy.com/models/2016-chevrolet-camaro/]

Turbo Four
The new will be available with a 2.0L four-cylinder under the hood of the Camaro for the first time. This turbocharged four-cylinder will no doubt be the fuel economy leader in the new Camaro lineup, but it won’t let anybody down who’s looking for power. It will crank out 275 hp and 292 lb-ft of torque, which means that it will actually offer more torque than the V6 engine outlined next. No fuel economy estimates have been released at this time.

Naturally Aspirated Six
The 3.6L V6 engine under the hood of the base Camaro continues over from the previous generation. This engine is tuned to make a bit more power than last year’s version, with an output of 335 hp and 284 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy should be up thanks to Active Cylinder Management, which can shut down cylinders during light loads to conserve gas.

Small-Block V8
The new will get the latest LT1 small block 6.2L V8 borrowed directly from the Corvette. In this application it will crank out 455 hp and 455 lb-ft of torque. That’s a significant upgrade over the previous generation’s V8, and it should also beat the old engine’s fuel economy numbers, thanks once again to Active Cylinder Management technology.

Chevy is Named Best Value Truck Brand by Vincentric

The #Chevy trucklineup, which includes the famous 2015 #ChevySilverado and the newly redesigned 2015 #ChevroletColorado has been named the Best Value Truck Brand by Vincentric. Chevy Trucks dominated the Vincentric rankings, winning three out of the six segments. General Motors took home a total of four out of the six categories, meaning all four of the heavy-duty categories in the Vincentric rankings. (http://www.homewoodchevy.com/models/2015-chevrolet-colorado/)

Chevy Wins Vincentric Rankings
Vincentric ranks vehicles based on how much they will depreciate in the first five years of ownership. According to a press release from the organization, “Vincentric measures cost-of-ownership using eight different cost factors: depreciation, fees & taxes, financing, fuel, insurance, maintenance, opportunity cost, and repairs. Using a statistical model, the company identified the Vincentric Best Value in America winners by measuring which vehicles had lower than expected ownership costs given their market segment and price.”

#Chevytrucks dominated the truck categories. The 2015 #ChevroletSilverado 2500HD won both the three-quarter-ton gas and diesel segments, while the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD won the one-ton diesel segment. The GMC Sierra 3500HD, the GMC twin of the Silverado, won the one-ton gas segment. Because of those wins, Vincentric awarded Chevy with the Best Value Truck Brand award for 2015. (http://www.homewoodchevy.com/models/2015-chevrolet-silverado-2500hd/)

Other Chevrolet winners included the 2015 Chevrolet Suburban for Best Value Large SUV. It’s clear that Chevrolet trucks and SUVs manage to retain their value better over the long haul than the competition. When you’re shopping for a car, it’s important to remember a total cost of ownership includes depreciation, the single biggest expense in owning vehicle. If your vehicle retains value better than the competition, as these Chevy trucks do, you’ll be able to sell it for more, and recover more value later.

If you decide to go for the GearOn Cross rails, you open up a world of possibility for cargo. The beauty of this system is that it still preserves the cargo functionality of the pickup bed. You can carry cargo like bikes, skis, kayaks, and more above the bed, so you can still load up with other cargo. These accessories are courtesy of Thule, the rack experts.

- Bedliner: Opt for this factory installed bedliner to protect your pickup bed from scratches, dents, and corrosion.

Chevrolet Offers Plenty of Accessories for the 2015 Chevy Colorado

Bed Accessories
To keep all your gear protected and safe, you can add a number of features:

- A bedliner protects your stuff and your Colorado from scuffs, skids, scratches, and more.

The 2015 Chevy Impala Scores Big When it Comes to Safety

Here at Chevrolet of Homewood, we’re pleased to be able to announce that the 2015 Chevrolet Impala has earned the best possible rating from the #NationalHighwayTrafficSafetyAdministration. The latest Impala has received the perfect five-star rating from the NHTSA. The full size sedan earned five stars in both front and side crash tests and four stars in the rollover test. 

Award Winning Safety
The new Impala has been winning accolades for safety, and we fully expect it to receive an excellent when the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety tests the car. Last year the Impala was the only non-luxury vehicle in the full size sedan class to receive the Superior ranking from the IIHS for Front Crash Prevention. This ranking recognizes the advanced safety features of the Impala, including available Collision Mitigation Braking, Forward Collision Alert, and Adaptive Cruise Control, among other systems. 

So, you know that the Impala is great at protecting passengers in the event of a collision, thanks to the NHTSA crash test ratings. You can also opt for these high tech features that help the Impala prevent collisions before they happen, so that crash worthiness doesn’t even come into play!

The 2015 Chevy Impala is now available here at Chevrolet of Homewood. If you’re shopping for a new full size sedan and safety is your priority, then you shouldn’t overlook the Impala. Even when compared to luxury sedans of this size, the Impala comes out ahead for both crash safety and crash prevention—plus, you can have all of those sophisticated collision prevention systems at a dramatically lower price than a luxury sedan.

And remember that every Impala gets 10 airbags, electronic stability control, traction control, and antilock brakes standard. The Impala starts at only $27,060 MSRP. 

Test Drive the 2015 #Chevy #Impala at Chevrolet of #Homewood
Come check out the latest 2015 Chevy Impala right here at Chevrolet of Homewood, your leading Chicago Heights area Chevy dealer.

The 2015 Chevy Colorado: A Step Above the Competition

The new #2015ChevyColorado is one of the best choices in the small pickup market. It’s an excellent choice for most drivers here in the #Chicagoland area who want pickup capability for trips to the hardware store or trips the woods, but it also provides improved fuel economy and easy-to-drive dynamics that a full-size truck just can’t offer. That’s why this truck is a step above the competition. You can find the new 2015 Chevy Colorado right here at Chevy of Homewood. Read on to learn more. 

Bigger MPG, Lower Prices
The Colorado delivers on the promise of providing more fuel economy and lower prices than the full size Silverado. It won’t quite pull as much weight, but depending on your needs, that might be a compromise you’re willing to make! The Chevy Colorado comes in two powertrain options:

• A 2.5L inline four-cylinder provides up to 200 hp and 191 lb-ft of torque. This engine has yet to be rated by the EPA but you can bet it will deliver superior efficiency.

• A 3.6L V6 puts out up to 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque that lets you tow up to 7,000 pounds. This engine also nets a best-in-class 26 mpg highway rating from the EPA. 

Both engines come standard with a six-speed automatic transmission that provides an enhanced automatic grade braking control while in tow mode. A tow package is an available option if you want to make sure your new truck is equipped to pull a boat or other trailer. You can also opt for the Z71 off-roading package if you plan to head far off the beaten path. This gives you a rugged off-road tuned suspension and plenty of other accessories.

You also get to choose between an extended cab with a 6-foot bed, or a crew cab with either a 5- or 6-foot bed. That should give you the capacity you need. There’s even more neat technology in the cabin, and the star of the show is the new Chevy MyLink system and the OnStar 4G LTE wireless connectivity. No other small pickup on the market offers features like this!

The Malibu is Redesigned for 2016 and Comes in Hybrid Flavor

The new #2016ChevroletMalibu should be a hit when it arrives in our showroom here at Chevrolet of Homewood. The fully redesigned model looks like a smaller, sleeker version of the recently remodeled Impala, and for the first time it comes in a full hybrid version that should offer class leading fuel economy numbers. The new #Malibu will show up here at Chevrolet of Homewood by the end of the year, and while we don’t know exact pricing or release dates yet, we’ll keep you updated as we know more. [http://www.homewoodchevy.com/models/2016-chevrolet-malibu/]

The big news for the Malibu is a major powertrain shakeup. Every engine is new or improved for the new model year. You’ll have to make a tough choice when you decide which Malibu to drive home. You’ll have to choose between these three different options:

The base model will get a 1.5L turbocharged four-cylinder engine that will send 160 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque through a six-seed automatic. With the standard automatic start-stop system, Chevrolet estimates 27 mpg city/37 mpg highway.

The performance option is a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 250 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. A new eight-speed automatic is the standard transmission with the upgrade engine option and Chevy estimates 22 mpg city/32 mpg highway/26 mpg combined.

Finally, a #hybridversion of the Malibu will be powered by a 1.8L engine and electric motors fed by a lithium-ion battery for a total output of 188 hp and an estimated 48 mpg city/45 mpg highway/47 mpg combined.

It’s easy to see how options like that will make the new #ChevroletMalibu a big hit here at Chevy of Homewood. But that’s not the end of the additions. The new Malibu will be available with features like pedestrian alert with automatic braking, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, cross-traffic alert, forward collision warning, distance-keeping cruise control with automatic braking, and a side blind spot monitor to keep you safe.
 
Find out more about the new #ChevyMalibu here at Chevrolet of Homewood. We’re happy to fill you in on details as we know them. You can also test drive the current 2015 model here at 18033 S. Halsted St., in Homewood, IL. We’re just a quick trip from Calumet City and anywhere else in the southwest suburbs, so come visit us today! [http://www.homewoodchevy.com/contact-us/]

Consumer Reports Names the 2015 Chevy Impala and Volt as Two of the Best

Consumer Reports has finally listed its 2015 Top Ten American Cars and two of them are made by Chevrolet. A number of them are also made by other General Motors brands, like Buick, and Cadillac. In fact, General Motors pretty much dominated the field. The #2015ChevroletImpala and the #2015ChevroletVolt both took home the top spots in their respective classes, according to Consumer Reports, so let’s take a closer look at why these two cars are so special.

The 2015 Chevy Impala
Winning out in the #largesedan class is the 2015 #ChevyImpala. Consumer Reports wrote that, “Few cars will surprise you more than the Impala.” They called the large sedan, “a world-beater that scores among the best cars we’ve tested.” That’s high praise—especially since consumer reports tests essentially every car on the market. (http://www.homewoodchevy.com/models/2015-chevy-impala/)

The organization gave the Impala top marks for ride quality, quietness, and luxury. In fact, Consumer Reports called it, “More luxurious than the competing Lexus ES.” They even loved the MyLink system, the handling, the controls, and more. Consumer Reports also recommended the V6 engine upgrade for its stellar reliability.

The 2015 Chevy Volt
Consumer Reports tell us that the 2015 #ChevyVolt, “plays by a different set of rules.” (http://www.homewoodchevy.com/models/2015-chevrolet-volt/)

As one of the first range extended #plug-inhybrid #electriccars on the market, it had to basically define how the segment works. It’s posted stellar reliability rankings for a car using advanced technology, and drivers find that its sticker price is radically offset by the available tax breaks that go with purchasing an electric vehicle and the money saved at the pump. Some drivers, who regularly charge their Volt’s battery, report hardly ever filling up the gas tank, except for during long journeys.

Plus, with upscale features, a #luxuriousinterior, and fun-to-drive performance, the Volt really is a great all around car—not just a great #hybrid!

Three Chevy Vehicles Named Kelley Blue Book Best Buys

If you’re a car buyer, you’re probably thinking about value and looking closely at #KelleyBlueBook to make sure you’re getting a good deal on the car you want. Kelley Blue Book doesn’t just give you accurate and up to date information on car values, however. They also put out a list of their Best Buys every year. This year, Chevy dominated the Kelley Blue Book Best Buy awards and grabbed three top spots

Chevy Wins Three Best Buy Awards
“Great products are the cornerstone of the most desirable brands and we know that for more consumers to choose a Chevrolet, we need to deliver the safest, most technologically advanced cars, trucks, and crossovers on the market,” said Brian Sweeney, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet. “Today’s lineup is the strongest in the brand’s history.”

Kelley Blue Book seems to agree. The #2015ChevroletCorvette, the 2015 Chevy Volt, the 2015 #ChevyTahoe, all dominated their categories. Here’s what Kelley Blue Book had to say about each.

- “Chevy's exotic, the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, goes up against the best of the best of the beasts and triumphs as the best way to spend your adrenaline and your money.” (http://www.homewoodchevy.com/models/2015-chevrolet-corvette-z06/)

- “Unique technology and strong value drive the #2015ChevroletVolt to victory as our Electric/Hybrid Car Best Buy for 2015.” (http://www.homewoodchevy.com/models/2015-chevrolet-volt/)

- “The #2015ChevroletTahoe won the editors' vote due to its comfortable, quiet ride, easy handling, and overall packaging.” (http://www.homewoodchevy.com/models/2015-chevrolet-tahoe/)

There were a lot of vehicles in the running for the Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Awards, but no automaker had as much success as Chevrolet. You can find all of the latest Chevrolet vehicles listed here at #Chevrolet of #Homewood. Whether you need a super efficient hybrid like the Volt, a super fast sports car like the #CorvetteStingray, or a super versatile SUV like the Tahoe, there’s something for everyone in the Chevy lineup.

Chevy has launched a configurator online and that means you can pick out everything from finish color to seating material for your new Corvette now. (http://www.homewoodchevy.com/models/2015-chevrolet-corvette-z06/)

Color Options

There are 10 different colors to choose from: Black, Arctic White, Torch Red, Blade Silver Metallic, Shark Gray Metallic, Night Race Blue Metallic, Laguna Blue Tintcoat, Daytona Sunrise Orange Metallic, Velocity Yellow Tintcoat, and Crystal Red Tintcoat.

Wheel Options

Interior Options
There are some fourteen different combinations of interior trims. Every one is upscale and sleek—though some, like the Adrenaline red trim choices, are a little bold. Every model gets perforated leather seating surfaces, some with suede microfiber inserts.

Trim Levels
The Z06 will only be available in 1LZ, 2LZ, and 3LZ trim levels. They all get premium features like a Bose premium audio system, two 8-inch color displays, a color head-up display, 8-way power adjustable seats, keyless push button start, a rear view camera, HID Xenon headlights with LED signals, Bluetooth connectivity, 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity, and much more.

The 2015 Chevrolet Colorado Offers Class Leading Fuel Economy

If you’re in need of a hardworking pickup(http://www.homewoodchevy.com/new-vehicles/trucks-vans/), but you just can’t stomach the high fuel costs and low miles per gallon ratings of full-sized trucks, then make sure you check out the 2015 #Chevy Colorado. The Colorado leads its segment when it comes to fuel economy. There’s no other midsize truck on the market that can match it. So that should make the choice pretty easy, right? Here at Chevrolet of Homewood, we’re happy to be able to bring you the latest Colorado, complete with class-leading fuel economy. Read on to learn more about the new Colorado!

Impressive Efficiency
The new 2015 Chevy Colorado offers class leading fuel economy ratings based on EPA estimates. The 302 hp 3.6L V6 offers an impressive 18 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway with rear-wheel drive. All-wheel drive drops those figures down to 17 mpg city and 24 mpg on the highway. That beats out the V6 option in both the Toyota Tacoma and the Nissan Frontier, the only two other trucks sold in the midsize segment. 

The numbers look even better when you equip the #Colorado with the 2.5L four-cylinder engine. Then you can expect up to 27 mpg on the highway and 20 mpg in the city when it’s equipped with the six-speed automatic transmission and two-wheel drive. The all-wheel drive four-cylinder model yields 19 mpg city and 25 mpg highway. Those numbers also beat similarly equipped competitors.  That four-cylinder isn’t short on power, however: it cranks out 200 hp and 191 lb-ft of torque.

You can bet that you’ll be saving money on gas in the long term when you go with the new Chevy Colorado over full-size trucks or other midsize competitors. 

Visit Chevrolet of Homewood
If you’re eager to get behind the wheel of the new #Chevrolet Colorado, you can contact Chevy of Homewood today(http://www.homewoodchevy.com/ContactUsForm). We’re expecting the new midsize truck to arrive in our showroom later this fall. Until then, you can always come check out the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado right here at 18033 S. Halsted St. in #Homewood, IL. We’d be happy to help you find the truck that will be best for your needs!

Learn More About the New 8-Speed Transmission in the 2015 Corvette

While many enthusiasts still love a good stick shift, the new eight-speed automatic transmission from General Motors that will find its way into the new #2015ChevroletCorvetteStingray, certainly won’t be a handicap. The new eight-speed gearbox should offer even more fuel economy and performance than the manual and the existing six-speed automatic. Read on to learn more about this exciting new transmission and when you can expect the new #Corvette here at Chevrolet of #Homewood.

8 Speeds of Performance
The new eight-speed automatic will gradually make its way into many cars in the #GeneralMotors stable. The Corvette will be one of the first vehicles to offer the additional cogs. This transmission has been in development since before 2009, and is part of a general trend to add gears to transmissions, in order to provide improved fuel economy. The rear-axle mounted transmission is designed to work with rear-wheel drive vehicles like the Corvette Stingray, as well as trucks like the Chevy Silverado. 

The new transmission will be available on the new Corvette Stingray Z06, which cranks out 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. That’s the most powerful engine that General Motors has ever made, so you know the eight-speed can handle just about anything. It’s a traditional automatic, and it’s said to shift faster than just about any transmission on the market. Plus, just so you know, there will be wheel-mounted paddle shifters so you can take control when you want. 

Chevy claims that the new transmission is even lighter than the existing six-speed, helping to improve fuel economy even more. Finally, the eight-speed offers both ratios at the bottom end and higher cruising gears at the top end, so not only should you expect better acceleration, but better fuel economy. No numbers have been released yet but you can expect the Corvette to drop a couple of tenths of a second off its 0 to 60 mph time and increase a mile per gallon or two, especially on the highway.

Loved the atmosphere. Very kind and friendly and most of all genuine. Jason Goldie was great, he listened to my needs and came through. I originally had my old vehicle towed there for service and end up buying a brand new car! Loved the experience!

They still have my car and I can say they are wonderful! Unfortunately, I did not get my car from them but my experiences with them have always been..... Pleasant, Trust Worthy, at Ease, and Educational. Long story short, I've only dealt with service, but they are all great at what they do. I'll be back they just called to tell me to come get my car!!!!

I appreciate my Sales rep Zee and her tenacity to put us in a vehicle. On today we are leaving out of Homewood with a car. Thanks for your hard work.

When I visited the dealership this past week i didn't know what to expect. I had credit challenges in the past and certainly did not want to waist time. I was greeted by Joe Lawrence who was very professional from start to finish. I needed the right kind of deal to be able to drive off the lot same day. Joe made me feel comfortable and assured me that it would be done and that is exactly what happened. I am glad I came to this dealership because Joe and the staff helped me be able to get to work I would most definitely recommend this dealership and when you go in ask for Joe! thanks again Homewood Chevy!

Every time I go to Homewood Chevy I dread even coming. No matter if you have an appointment or are an early walk-in you will wait forever! Of course there is never anything wrong unless it benefits them financially and nothing has to come from them! I am ultimately dissatisfied with all services from the service department of Home Wood Chevy! Also, I was never given a status of my vehicle after 3 and a half hours I had to ask the service department myself! I was then told that they had no info yet? So why have I been waiting for 4 hours... I presume no one even looked at my vehicle! Now they keep asking me if I want a ride home! No I want my damn car or an update or a courtesy vehicle! But I don't pay 500 a month for a damn ride home to wait and see if You can fix it! I will never do business here again and pray to trade this sucker in within a few months!!!!! Please beware!!!!!!!

Seamus is the best salesman that have ever went above and beyond to help me to purchase a vehicle. He is a asset to your company and extremely friendly person that made me feel confident that i would get a car even though i was in denial. i appreciate his service!

My service writer, Nate, was very helpful with my service concern. He even called to advise me what the issue was and that it was covered under warranty. I've been going there since 2006 and have always been satisfied.
