Chevy Takes On Fuel Economy Challenge

fuel economy challenge

You have to test yourself every once in a while. It builds confidence, pride and certainty in one’s ability. Chevrolet recently proved its ability to build efficient automobiles during the Fuel Economy Challenge. Granted, it was competing against itself, but the numbers don’t lie!

GM Authority reports that the goal of the event was “to achieve the highest-possible fuel economy in the 1.4-liter turbocharged 2014 Chevrolet Trax SUV.” So the automaker sent a bunch of Traxs along a route made up of all sorts of driving environments, such as expressways and urban streets. Drivers were composed of current Trax owners and potential owners. Before they started, Chevrolet gave them a little lecture on the ins and outs of efficient driving.

After all was said and done, the winner was Mr. Wen, who achieved a fuel economy of 45 mpg in his Trax. Of course, the real winner is you! Visit Nehls Chevrolet and check out all of the outstanding features of your next Chevrolet.

New Chevrolet Trax City Car Makes City Life Easy

Chevrolet Trax City CarWhen you live in the city, but need a car with plenty of cargo space, you normally find yourself in a bit of a pickle. Big SUVs tend to be difficult to maneuver in heavy city traffic, while the smaller compact cars just don’t have what you need—until now. The all-new Chevrolet Trax city car is taking over the industry, bringing urbanites exactly what they need to survive in the big city.

“Chevrolet is making a huge inroad with small cars around the world and Trax is the latest example,” said Steve Majoros, Chevrolet director of car marketing. “It is the right vehicle at the right time in the U.S., building on Chevrolet’s strong SUV heritage with package of features combining value, versatility, technology, and maneuverability.”

The Trax combines the connectivity of OnStar 4G LTE Wifi and a compact size with the versatility and cargo space of an SUV. This city car has enough seating to fit five passengers, along with a 60/40-split seat, which folds down, creating 48.4 cubic feet of cargo space. The 1.4-liter turbocharged Ecotec engine achieves a terrific EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 26 mpg city and 34 highway, making it a larger vehicle that won’t make a large dent in your gas budget.

Sometimes the best things really do come in small packages. At least, that’s the case with the all-new 2015 Chevrolet Trax. With the demand for a small vehicle with SUV capabilities growing, Chevrolet will be introducing the small Trax to both the U.S. and China, the brand’s largest markets.

“The Trax truly rounds out Chevrolet’s already very strong small car portfolio,” said Alan Batey, General Motors senior vice president, Global Chevrolet. “Demand for a vehicle with huge capability in a small footprint is on the rise, and the Trax is a perfect fit that offers the latest technology and a bold design with versatility to match.”

Since the Trax was launched in 60 other countries, the small-SUV has sold over 90,000 units, combining style, fuel efficiency, and flexibility to appeal to consumers. Currently, Chevrolet’s small car lineup has seven other models, including the popular Spark, Sonic, and Cruze. Inside the small-SUV, both the second-row and passenger seats fold flat, offering a large amount of cargo that can hold items that are up to eight feet long.

The Chevrolet Trax is set to arrive on dealer lots across the U.S. in 2015. Until then, maybe Nehls Chevrolet can offer you another option from Chevy’s small car lineup?
