The Chevrolet Bolt EV can now travel farther for the model year 2020. On just a single full charge, the 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV offers an EPA-estimated 259 miles of range, which is 21 miles more than the previous models.*

In order to attain this range increase, the Chevrolet battery engineering team changed the cell chemistry so that neither the physical battery pack nor the battery’s incorporation into the vehicle’s structure had to change.

If you are an original purchaser of a new Bolt EV, you can also utilize the Energy Assist feature on the myChevrolet mobile app.** This feature allows you to locate charging stations and even plan a trip with stops at charging stations. You can also project the Energy Assist feature onto your infotainment system by using Android Auto™ or Apple CarPlay®.

Chevrolet is also partnering with Qmerit to make it easier for you to find certified electricians who can install charging equipment at your house. As a result, you could conveniently charge your Bolt EV from the comfort of your home.

We at Curry Auto Center are excited about the improvements added to the 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV. Learn more about the vehicle’s features and how an electric vehicle could match your lifestyle at our dealership.

* Your actual range will vary based on several factors, including temperature, terrain, battery age and how you use and maintain your vehicle.

Driving on Halloween



Halloween is a fun holiday to celebrate, but it can also be a dangerous time to drive since children are trick or treating. Follow these tips to help ensure safe driving on Halloween.

Turn on your headlights

Residential streets are filled with children walking from house to house and potentially crossing the streets in search of candy. Keep your headlights on at all times of the day to allow you to see the people around you and allow children to better notice your vehicle.

Drive under the speed limit

Drive slower than the posted speed limit during Halloween, especially when you drive in neighborhoods. Children can quickly cross streets without much warning, so drive slow to increase your response time and stop when necessary.

Don’t pass stopped vehicles

Vehicles stopped on the sides of streets are likely dropping off or picking up children. Do not pass a vehicle if you see anyone near it, and be sure to give the vehicle ample time before you attempt to pass it.

Alert law enforcement

If you see a reckless or drunk driver, immediately alert law enforcement. Try to catch the vehicle’s license plate or its model and color if you can. We at Curry Auto Center wish you and your family a safe drive on Halloween. Before heading out, stop by our dealership for any necessary service.



Buick Improved in Overall Quality According to New J.D. Power Study



Over the past few years, Buick has made updates to popular SUVs, like the Buick Envision. With its recent changes, Buick improved in overall quality, as demonstrated by J.D. Power’s latest quality study, and outshined other automakers.

There’s no doubt that virtually all automakers have made steady improvements in areas, such as connectivity and driver-assistive safety features. Buick, in particular, has added some impressive technology features to the newest models in its lineups. However, while new connectivity technology is a great thing, traditional vehicle functions are still important to the overall vehicle quality. With its higher J.D. Power ranking, Buick is proving that its vehicles have a great balance between innovative tech and dependable functionality.

The J.D. Power study is based on surveys given to new vehicle lessees or owners, who have had their vehicles for 90 days. The study asked drivers 233 questions in eight different categories and covered everything from minor problems, like Bluetooth® connectivity, to major problems, like powertrain issues.

J.D. Power found that, on average, real drivers reported 93 problems in every 100 vehicles. Buick drivers reported fewer overall problems than the average, with drivers finding only 92 problems in every 100 vehicles.

Notably, Buick saw a large improvement in overall quality while many competitors didn’t see much of a change in quality. Buick earned the 11th place overall, which is much higher than its 16th placement previously.

We at Curry Auto Center are proud to have Buick vehicles on our lot. Contact us and test-drive one of our many great vehicles and try out their exciting features firsthand.



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?

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.

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.
