Chevrolet Sweeps the 2014 NAIAS Awards

Chevrolet took home two big 2014 NAIAS awards.
Chevrolet made quite a showing at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.

Chevy fans will not be disappointed at the Detroit Auto Show this year. Chevrolet took home the top 2014 NAIAS awards.

The automaker’s 2014 Corvette Stingray and Silverado truck took home top honors with Car of the Year and Truck of the Year.

The Stingray was a huge improvement on the last model with a better interior. Its performance was also better due to its 455 horsepower V8 engine. Its $51,000 also makes it one of the best value sports cars in its market.

Chevy’s Silverado truck has been praised by lots of critics, including Consumer Reports magazine. Its base v8-powered engine gets it an estimated 19 MPG overall. This fuel economy not only trumps the previous year Silverado, but it also outdoes the F-150.

It’s no wonder why these two vehicles are at the top of their class. A majority of 50 automotive journalists thought so.

Chevrolet Vehicles to Offer 4G LTE this Summer

4G LTE available in Chevrolets, starting this summer.
Thanks to 4G LTE, you will be able to access online information at high speeds in the comfort of Chevy cars.

Can’t get enough of technology, even when you are out on the road?

Chevrolet announced this week that they will be offering 4G LTE in its cars. This summer, Chevy will start this service with the Corvette, Impala, Malibu and Volt.

By the time the automaker rolls out its 2015 lineup, most of its American and Canadian vehicle will offer the connection.

This comes with a range of benefits for car occupants who need access on the Internet through their wireless devices.

  • Each car will allow multiple devices to be connected at the same time
  • Each car will act as a mobile hub for easier access to apps and other services
  • Data connection speed will be quick due to collaboration between Chevrolet and AT&T

While the OnStar 4G LTE will come with an additional cost not yet known, the payoff will be worth it.

Fans can expect the Equinox, Silverado, Silverado Heavy Duty editions, Spark and Spark EV to follow the same pattern after the summer.

2014 Camaro Z/28 Comes with a Price

The 2014 Camaro Z/28 is pricey, but it's a beauty as well.

The 2014 Camaro Z/28 comes at a price, and that was emphasized this week on a financial note.

Chevrolet announced this week that the 2014 Camaro Z/28 will cost $75,000, including destination fees and gas-guzzler tax.

The reason for the high price is due to the fact that the Camaro is built for one thing, and that is high speed. Its 7.0-liter aluminum V8 engine pumps out 500 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque.

The six-speed manual is one of the most expensive Chevrolet cars on the market. The 2013 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 only cost more ($76,595).

Chevrolet will take orders for the 2014 Camaro Z/28 later this month. Customers can expect to start seeing the Camaros on dealer lots in the spring just in time for racing season.
