2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2

Pricing

Enthusiasts have been yearning for an off-road version of the popular Chevrolet Colorado and it looks like they’re finally get their wish. The 2017 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 finally got a price which means it’ll be here sooner rather than later. Starting at an MSRP of $40,995, the Colorado ZR2 packs plenty of off-road features designed for the adventurous.

Competition

The 2017 Colorado ZR’s starting price is notably more than $2,000 cheaper than the  Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro when comparably equipped. The midsize truck boasts a 3.6-liter V6 engine that puts out 306 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque. Drivers can also opt for the 2.8-liter Duramax turbo-diesel engine that delivers 186 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque.

Features

Four-wheel drive comes standard. The V6 engine comes mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission while diesel lovers will receive a six-speed automatic transmission. That’s just the tip of the off-road trail though.

Off-road features including a lifted suspension, Multimatic Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve dampers, and 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac off-road tires. Tech-savvy drivers will enjoy an eight-inch touchscreen with Chevrolet MyLink and navigation.

Advanced safety features including an aluminum skid plate, rearview camera, and electronic automatic cruise control.

We here at Nehl’s Chevrolet can’t wait for the arrival of the 2017 Colorado ZR2!

Texas and Pacific Railway Museum

The Texas and Pacific Railway Museum is located inside the Texas and Pacific Railway Depot, also known as the T&P Depot, located in Marshall, Texas. The depot is an active train station and also houses a museum dedicated to the former employees who played an important role in the development of the town and the state of Texas.

The depot was originally built in 1912 and is located in the Ginocchio National Historical District, a registered national historic area in Marshall. The depot welcomed soldiers during World War I and II and at one time held immigration offices.

Today, the depot runs as an Amtrak station and goes all the way north to Chicago and west/southwest to Dallas, San Antonio, and Los Angeles. The museum inside is filled with artifacts and photos from as far back as the 1870s, including a replica office with a working telegraph key and a 1920s-era panoramic photo of the entire industrial area and all the local shops.

The museum tells the story of the Texas and Pacific Hospital and has displays children will enjoy like working train models that wind through models of historic Marshall buildings. If you’re looking for something to do in Marshall, pay a visit to the Railway Museum.

New Chevrolet Cruze

New Chevrolet Cruze Lands in China

New Chevrolet Cruze
The new Chevrolet Cruze has made it to China!

The Chevrolet Cruze quickly became the brand’s bestselling vehicle worldwide and the latest model recently landed in China. Officially debuting on July 20th, the new Chevrolet Cruze brings minor design changes for the market. Considering China is the world’s largest automotive market, odds are the Cruze will continue to do well.

Chevrolet touched up the new Cruze for the Chinese market with a few cosmetic changes. The front fascia sees a different design, most noticeable in the hexagonal grille and headlights. Despite cosmetic changes, the wheelbase remains 106.3-inches long.

Essentially the American version of the popular sedan, the new Chevrolet Cruze joins the older model that’s still being sold in China. That leaves the possibility that the new Cruze could be marketed at the Chevrolet Cruze XL. It wouldn’t be the first time a new model was sold alongside an old version. The ninth-generation Chevrolet Malibu, called the Malibu XL in China, was sold alongside the older version as well.

The new Chevrolet Cruze is available in seven trims with pricing ranging from $16,405 to $25,365. Standard features include heated seats, a seven-inch multi-touch color screen, OnStar 4G LTE connectivity with built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, and push-button start.

We here at Nehls Chevrolet are happy to see the new Cruze available in more markets!

Chevrolet Global Mascot Contest

Chevrolet Global Mascot Contest Gives Back to Kids

Chevrolet Global Mascot Contest
Manchester United has just gained an inspiring new mascot named Oscar!

Chevrolet likes to give back to various communities around the globe, which is one of the reasons the Chevrolet Global Mascot Contest was founded several years ago. This year, a 10-year-old boy from Mexico became the 11th member of the program, representing one of his favorite soccer teams.

The winner of the competition, named Oscar, will be participating as a mascot for Manchester United, one of the premier soccer teams in the world. According to Chevrolet, the Global Mascot Contest is part of the Beautiful Possibilities Program, providing underprivileged children opportunities to travel and experience the world.

“Through the years, we’ve heard from our fans that they, too, would like an opportunity to join our squad,” said John Gasloli, Chevrolet Global Marketing. “This year, we evolved the program to invite parents and guardians to nominate a child to be our 11th Mascot. We are thrilled to have Oscar join this year’s Chevrolet Starting XI.”

Oscar was born with a rare hip condition, leading doctors to believe he would never walk again. However, after years of perseverance and incredible discipline, Oscar is able to walk freely—as well as cheer for his favorite soccer team. In addition to cheering for the team, Oscar will attend the Man-United Soccer School and tour Old Trafford stadium in Greater Manchester, England.

In New Chevy Ad, Mo’ne Davis Reads America an Open Letter

It wasn’t long ago when Mo’ne Davis shocked the world at the Little League World Series. The lanky, thirteen-year-old pitcher surprised everyone when she took to the mound and threw her 70 mile-per-hour fastball. Now, Davis is wowing the world again in a new Chevy ad, which shows that her on-field accomplishments are just as possible for millions of other girls—all they have to do is throw like a girl.

“Mo’ne truly embodies the spirit at the heart of baseball, and she has been a powerful inspiration to boys and girls everywhere,” said Paul Edwards, US vice president of Chevrolet marketing. “She has proven that anything is possible if you decide yourself, and are guided by the right values in life.”

The new 60-second television spot made its debut during Game One of the 2014 World Series on FOX. Along with this new Chevy ad, Mo’ne Davis is also featured in the brand’s 16-minute documentary, both of which were recorded and developed by Academy Award-nominated director Spike Lee.

If you are interested in seeing how Chevrolet vehicles have the same resilient spirit Mo’ne embodies, make sure you stop in to Nehls Chevrolet today!

General Motors Landfill-Free Facilities on the Rise

Global industries are in need of a little change to maintain some harmony with the world, and General Motors is taking big steps toward making production cleaner and safer for the environment.

A facility in Burton, Michigan has really made strides toward having a cleaner production line. This General Motors facility has earned the title of ‘landfill-free’. The Burton facility is one of 11 General Motors landfill-free facilities, though the number is on the rise.

Jim Deluca, the executive vice president of GM’s Global Manufacturing, said progress like this is all just a part of the culture of General Motors. GM is focused on continuous improvement worldwide. These steps toward change bring efficiency and resource conservation to sites, two aspects vital to the continuing survival in this industry.

By avoiding landfill use, facilities utilize the cost-effective process of recycling materials for production. When it comes down to it, recycling takes less energy and money than creating things from scratch. So, along with avoiding a build-up of refuse, GM’s saving money as well!

Nehls’ Chevrolet sees a lot more progress to come in General Motors’ ventures toward becoming cleaner, more efficient, and overall better producers. For more information on General Motors’ progressive facility innovations, check back with us every week!
