A Glimpse at the 2021 Chevrolet Bolt EUV

A new chapter in the young history of electric vehicles is upon us. The 2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV is already a praised electric vehicle on the market. Now, it’s been revealed that General Motors is producing a new electric vehicle, the 2021 Chevrolet Bolt EUV.

One major, exciting difference between the 2019 Bolt EV and the 2021 Bolt EUV is the size. The Bolt EUV will have a larger exterior, and as a crossover, it will feature more passenger room and cargo space than the Bolt EV.

Currently, most of what we know about the Bolt EUV is from photographs obtained by Car and Driver, which display a camouflaged version of the crossover. From what we can see, the Bolt EUV has slender front headlights and a floating roof design.

There are still many unknown details about the 2021 Chevrolet Bolt EUV, seeing as it will be over a year before General Motors is set to discuss their plans for their new EV crossovers. However, we do know that this particular crossover shows promise of being a great electric vehicle that coincides with the initiative of General Motors to produce more zero-emission vehicles.

We at Curry Auto Center are excited for the release of the 2021 Chevrolet Bolt EUV. While you wait for further announcements on the crossover, come visit the dealership to see what vehicles we have to offer today.

Which Chevy is Most Efficient?

Chevrolet

With tuition costs climbing year after year, today’s college students are more cost-savvy than previous generations. If you are one of the 64 percent of Hoosiers living off campus and you’re thinking about a car, it’s safe to say that a gas guzzler might not be the most economical fit. Luckily, Chevrolet offers a whole lineup of fantastic, fuel-efficient cars for you to consider.

2019 Bolt EV

The most fuel-efficient Chevy is the all-electric 2019 Bolt, the model which Car and Driver dubbed “the best everyday electric on the market today.” The Bolt is a practical vehicle with an impressive electric powertrain, earning a combined EPA-estimated 119 MPG equivalent while supplying 200 horsepower.*

2019 Malibu Hybrid

For more cabin space, consider the hybrid trim of the 2019 Malibu. This hybrid twist on a Chevy staple yields 49 mpg in the city and 43 on the highway.** Its acceleration is smooth for a mid-size sedan thanks to its 277 lb-ft of torque.

2019 Spark

The 2019 Spark offers the most bang for your buck, however. A lively hatchback with a starting price of just $14,000, this model boasts an advanced infotainment system. It also achieves a combined 33 mpg, to help reduce greenhouse gases while saving you at the pump.  

Stop by Curry Auto Center to test-drive any of these three eco-friendly models for yourself.

*EPA-estimated 119 MPGe city/highway combined. Your actual range may vary based on several factors including temperature, terrain, conditions.

GMC Yukon Recognized on List of Longest-Lasting Vehicles

Typically, when we think of long-lasting vehicles, we think of small, compact cars. The GMC Yukon and Yukon XL shatter this assumption, however. Both vehicles were just recognized in a study featuring models that lasted for 200,000 miles or more. The Yukon and Yukon XL are the largest SUVs in the GMC lineup, offering tons of dependable power and capability that last in the long run.

The study was performed by iSeeCars.com and determined the top 14 longest-lasting vehicles in America. To determine the list, iSeeCars.com evaluated approximately 14 million used cars sold in 2018 that were manufactured between 1981 and 2018. Remarkably, the GMC Yukon XL claimed the fourth spot on the list, and the GMC Yukon came in at number 8. While 4 percent of Yukon XL models surpass 200,000 miles, 2.8 percent of Yukon models do the same.

Such distinction was not reserved for only the GMC Yukon and Yukon XL. In comparison to all vehicle brands sold in the states, GMC claimed the third spot in longest-lasting vehicles overall, with 1.4 percent of GMC models reaching 200,000 miles. Other GM vehicles were also heavily lauded in the study, with the Chevy Suburban coming in second place and the Tahoe coming in sixth.

First Look at the 2020 GMC Acadia, Coming this Fall

The GMC Acadia three-row crossover will return in the 2020 model year with new, bolder styling, new powertrains with improved performance, and better technology, making it a competitive SUV within its segment.

Outside, the 2020 Acadia has been redesigned with more rugged styling, including a new grille with sharper lines and LED headlights. This updated look brings the Acadia more in line with the rest of the GMC lineup and reflects its impressive capabilities.

The new Acadia will be available at four trim levels, the highest of which is the luxury Denali trim available across the GMC lineup. The trim levels offer diverse capabilities, like the AT4 trim designed for off-roading, but they all pack smart features.

For instance, the Acadia is equipped with an upgraded GMC Infotainment System, which now lets drivers create a customized user profile that remembers their various preferences, as well as new satellite navigation. The new Acadia will also offer wireless charging and a camera with higher definition than ever.

Replacing the old six-speed automatic transmission is a new nine-speed, which is paired with all engine options, including the new 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with 230 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The 2020 GMC Acadia keeps its standard 2.5-liter I-4 engine and the available 3.6-liter V6.

Distract yourself from the anticipation of waiting for the 2020 GMC Acadia when you stop by Curry Auto Center to test-drive the 2019 Acadia models we have on our lot.

2019 Chevrolet Blazer at the Chicago Auto Show

The 2019 Chevrolet Blazer has been making waves with its sleek styling, luxurious interior, and premium amenities. The Chevrolet Blazer turned heads and dropped jaws at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show not long ago.

The all-new Chevrolet Blazer embodies impressive performance and innovative systems. The base model will feature a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 193 horsepower. An available 3.6-liter V6 engine generates 305 horsepower. Both engine options pair with a nine-speed automatic transmission.

The sheer styling of the Chevrolet Blazer sets it apart on the road. Sleek curves, steep character lines, and an aggressive front end create an image of pure athleticism. Inside, seating for five passengers, available leather upholstery, and available heated seats create a luxurious experience.

Drivers who value technology will enjoy every minute inside the 2019 Chevrolet Blazer. Smartphone connectivity systems include Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. By connecting a compatible smartphone to the Chevrolet Blazer, drivers can play their own music, access navigation, and send hands-free texts. An available 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot provides internet connectivity for up to seven devices.

In terms of safety, the Chevrolet Blazer excels. Advanced systems — like a Rear Camera Mirror, Pedestrian Detection, and Forward Collision Warning — are readily available.

Test drive the 2019 Chevrolet Blazer when it arrives here at Curry Auto Center in the near future. In the meantime, stop by to test-drive our other shiny new 2019 Chevy models.

New Chevrolet “A Little Big Country, A Little Bit Rock n’ Roll” Ad Campaign Highlights Everything We Love About the New 2019 Chevrolet Silverado

Recently, Chevrolet launched a brand-new comprehensive advertising campaign to support the launch of the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado. Starting with a new 60-second TV commercial entitled, “A Little Bit Country, A Little Bit Rock n’ Roll,” the new ad highlights everything we love about the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado: its rugged capability, roaring power, bold style, and undeniable fun.

Just like the all-new Silverado, this ad was meticulously crafted to turn heads. According to Paul Edwards, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet Marketing, the ad needed to be “bold, engaging and comprehensive to break through the clutter while staying true to the brand’s values and overall advertising approach.” Additionally, Edwards says the campaign prioritizes spotlighting the “versatility and lifestyle that comes with owning a pickup truck.”

The new Silverado campaign isn’t limited to the small screen, either. The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado will also feature on custom Amazon delivery boxes — an industry first — custom magazine covers, on popular website homepages, on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”, and more.

Such a comprehensive ad campaign is totally understandable, considering that the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado is the strongest, most powerful, most advanced Silverado ever—and that’s saying something of a brand with more than a century-long legacy of strength and reliability.

Put a little more Rock n’ Roll in your life by taking the 2019 Silverado for a test drive at Curry Auto Center.

Popular Chevrolet Accessories Every Owner Should Have

Chevrolet vehicles come stocked with plenty of standard amenities, but you can make each model better by adding additional equipment. Check out these popular Chevrolet accessories that are worth the investment.

Illuminated Grille Bowtie

Setting your Chevrolet Silverado 1500 apart from other trucks is as easy as adding an illuminated grille bowtie emblem. The black emblem comes surrounded by a light-blue outline. The emblem can withstand temperatures well below zero degrees and above 100 degrees. It’s also 100-percent water-resistant and comes backed by a 12-month/12,000-mile warranty.

Under-Seat Storage Organizer

Expand the storage options in your Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with convenient under-seat compartments. Keeping all your gear, tools, and accessories neat and tidy is as easy as installing a storage organizer. With the organizer, you can conveniently take unused space and make it into a practical place for holding clutter.

Jet Black Floor Mats with Red Stitching

The 2019 Chevrolet Camaro is a lean, mean adrenaline-pumping machine, and you can add a custom touch to the muscle car. Jet black carpeted floor mats with adrenaline red stitching and Camaro script add upscale intensity to the Camaro’s interior. The floor mats help prevent dirt, water, salt, and other debris from wearing out the interior floors. This accessory comes with a 12-month/12,000-mile warranty.

We have a large selection of official Chevrolet accessories here at Curry Auto Center. Contact us if you’d like to purchase and install some personalized touches in your vehicle.

Buick Marketplace App Adds Yelp Reservations

The Marketplace app in new Buick models will now make dining out easier with the addition of Yelp Reservations.

The Marketplace app is a game-changing, useful tool now included in new GM infotainment systems. It makes time-consuming roadside purchases faster and easier by allowing you to shop from within your car. With the Marketplace app, you can use your vehicle’s infotainment display to make purchases such as gas and coffee from the comfort of your driver’s seat.

The Marketplace already offers a long list of participating merchants, including a number of gas stations and restaurants. With the addition of Yelp Reservations, the list of venues available from your vehicles has expanded even more. With just a few taps on its infotainment display, Buick Marketplace can find an appropriate restaurant and book your table through Yelp.

A variety of customizable search options will help you narrow down your dining destination by search area and cuisine type. It can even provide ratings for the venue from Yelp’s massive repository of customer reviews. Once you’ve found the perfect dining location, simply select the details for the reservation, and the Marketplace app takes care of the rest.

Follow your Buick’s navigation to your destination, where your reserved table will be waiting for you. If you have special requests, or if you just prefer talk in person, the Marketplace app and Yelp can connect you directly to the restaurant’s phone number.

Curry Auto Center has many new Buick models in stock that feature the Marketplace app. Come visit us to see how it works.

What Is the Envision GX and Why Is It Important?

Exciting news is stirring behind the scenes at Buick. With the filing of a new trademarked name in the USA in late September, the automaker projects its intentions to roll out a new, exciting trim option for the Buick Envision: the Envision GX.

 

What the new Envision GX trim will bring to this fantastic vehicle on top of its current offerings is yet to be seen. The Buick Envision crossover SUV currently available in the United States offers front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive configurations as well as multiple engine options. It’s a luxurious ride packed with standard and available features, so we’re not sure how Buick could improve the Envision to make it more of a segment titan than it already is.

 

Fans of Buick may recognize the GX moniker from the Buick Excelle GX, a wagon variant of the Excelle available overseas. It is unlikely that the Envision will receive a wagon variant here in the U.S., so the exact details of what the trim will include is shrouded in mystery.

 

Whatever the Envision GX is, we will have it in stock at Curry Auto Center when it arrives at dealerships in the future. Until then, check out our selection of other Buick vehicles.

Sporty New Malibu RS Features

Although many drivers are turning to compact and crossover SUVs, sedans are still a staple of the automotive market. To prove sedans’ competitiveness and desirability, Chevrolet is updating its sedan offerings to be smarter, more stylish, and versatile.

For 2019, Chevrolet will be adding a sporty new RS trim to the Malibu lineup, making the midsize sedan fresh and desirable again.

Compared to other trims on the Malibu, the RS definitely looks sportier and more daring. Its visual package includes a black grille design alongside black bowtie emblems, a rear spoiler, dual-outlet exhaust, and sleek 18-inch machined aluminum wheels with gray pockets. The interior of the new Malibu RS features a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter as well as an advanced infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility, and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.

The Malibu RS’s sporty look is backed by a sporty 1.5-liter turbo engine that delivers 163 horsepower, 184 lb-ft of torque, and peppy acceleration. If you’re looking for a slightly bolder driving experience, you can always opt for the 2.0-liter-engine model, which boasts more power.

The 2019 Malibu is refreshed from front to back, featuring modern design cues and equipment. The RS trim adds additional features to further elevate your driving experience and enjoyment behind the wheel. Learn more about it by contacting us at Curry Auto Center.
