2014 Chevy Sonic Pricing Announced

The 2014 Chevy Sonic pricing does not feature any major changes.
Unless you want extra features, the 2014 Chevy Sonic should remain about the same cost from last year.

The 2014 Chevy Sonic is available now here at Nehls Chevrolet. Because it was not a major redesign year for the Sonic (with just minor adjustments to the top-selling model), Chevy opted to keep the 2014 Chevy Sonic pricing the same.

The base 2014 Sonic sedan starts as low as $14,995 while the sedan variant has a starting MSRP of $15,995. Of course, opting for trims higher than the base and adding extra features will see those prices rise. Do note that both prices already include an $825 destination charge.

New exterior colors for the Sonic include Ashen Gray Metallic, Red Hot, and Cool Blue. Standard on the LTS and RS trims is a rearview camera, but if you’re after the LT trim, you’ll have to add it as an option. There is also an optional promotion package to include MyLink, a power sunroof, and fog lamps. Drivers can also opt for a safety package that includes forward collision alert and lane-departure warning.

In addition, the Sonic RS Sedan and the Sonic Dusk will be arriving at dealerships sometime this spring. The Sonic RS Sedan will start at $20,530 while the Dusk will sell for $20,945.

Save the World with the Super 2014 Chevy Traverse

Chevrolet's Captain America ad boasts the super 2014 Chevy Traverse.
Look for the 2014 Chevy Traverse in “Captain America: Winter Soldier” next month.

Do you love Captain America? We at Nehls Chevrolet do, and this month, Chevrolet launched a Captain America marketing campaign to promote its car lineup, including the super 2014 Chevy Traverse.

The result is a cute reenactment of the trailer for Captain America: Winter Soldier, played convincingly by adorable school children.

The film itself, slated for theaters on Friday, April 4, also features the 2014 Corvette Stingray. Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) is mostly associated with the Corvette in the film as she appears in the muscle car in the first 10 minutes.

“The Corvette represents technology, sophistication, intelligence, performance and beauty just like the Black Widow character,” GM’s general marketing director, Steve Tihanyi told Variety. “Being able to align the two made for a great opportunity to include the Corvette in the film.”

Still, in this latest ad from Chevrolet, the Traverse is at the center and will also have a prominent role in the movie.

“Our Chevy products are represented very well and are positioned in wonderful heroic roles and situations,” Tihanyi said.

Will you be seeing the Captain America sequel in theaters? While you wait, head on over to our dealership and check out the super 2014 Chevy Traverse!

Silverado Sees Massive Sales Improvement Due to V6 Engine

The EcoTec3 V6 engine is a nice addition to the Silverado 1500 and a profit for Chevrolet.
Chevy’s boost in sales was helped by the Silverado’s new EcoTec3 V6 engine.

 

The all-new 2014 Silverado has vastly improved the sales of the full-size pickup. In 2014, the Silverado currently holds a 20% share of the market, whereas the previous model only had 5% of the same market. At Nehls Chevrolet, we believe that the all-new EcoTec3 V6 engine is largely responsible for the uptick.

We’re not alone in this thought either. A recent Chevrolet press release listed five different reasons why the new engine is such an awesome addition to the new 2014 Silverado. However, we’ll just sum up the press release in a few short words: the 4.3L EcoTec3 V6 brings increased power and efficiency to an already awesome vehicle.

The new engine uses EcoTec technology to chug out class-leading torque—305 lb-ft—and 7,600 lbs of available towing. And it’s not short on speed, either. It revs up to 285 horsepower to go with that class-leading torque. And all that comes with 24 mpg highway and 18 mpg city, an awesome improvement in fuel economy in a typically stingy segment.

So come by Nehls and check out the awesome new engine—and the truck that it sits inside of—today!

2014 Chevy Cruze Featured at the Oscars in “Masterpiece”

The 2014 Chevy Cruze was featured the "Masterpiece" ad at the Oscars.
Chevrolet “masterpiece” of a vehicle showed up for an encore at this year’s Oscars.

Chevy’s contribution to the Oscars came in the form of a commercial titled “Masterpiece.” It was submitted by South Korean independent filmmaker Jude Chun as part of the Chevrolet and MOFILM Oscars film program, beating out 72 submissions in a fight for the opportunity to be played at the Oscars.

The 60-second spot follows the adventures of two child filmmakers who use their imagination and unique creativity to create a short film called “Speed Chaser,” featuring the new 2014 Chevrolet Cruze. Viewers experience their filmmaking process, which includes makeup, props, sounds, special effects, and a whole lot of cuteness.

“A big budget might help, but it’s really imagination, creativity, and passion that gets movies made,” said Chun. “Chevrolet’s brand is about ‘finding new roads’, and that’s exactly what filmmaking is.”

Check out the awesome film below! And if you were wondering where you might find yourself a Chevy Cruze, just head on to Nehls Chevrolet.
