The Chevy Blazer is Back

As you can probably tell from the looks of this awesome suv, this ride doesn’t have much in common with the boxy, all-wheel-drive, body-on-frame Blazer of yore. The 2019 version rides on a unibody frame it’ll share with the GMC Acadia. Its shape looks, well, not like a serious off-road machine, but rather like just about every other crossover on the roads today, albeit with a slightly meaner, Camaro-inspired front.

Blame aerodynamics, but also consumer demand. We’re living in the crossover age, to the point that Ford is killing off most of its car lineup to sell more profitable trucks and SUVs. As Car and Driver points out, GM already had five crossover in the Chevy lineup—Trax, Equinox, Traverse, Tahoe, and Suburban—before it decided to reboot the Blazer, which now sits somewhere between the second and third entries on that list in size. With all those family haulers already in the group, you have to wonder why Chevy didn’t seize the opportunity to make a serious off-roader again.

The new Blazer will come with a standard 3.6-liter V6 and optional AWD. The 18-inch wheels come standard, but 20- and 21-inchers will be available. Expect to see it in early 2019.

For additional information please contact our Customer Care Team at 630-898-9630.  Thanks for reading about the all new Chevy Blazer!

Battery life of 2018 Nissan Leaf vs 2017 Chevy Bolt EV electric cars: what manuals suggest

 

Battery Life Nissan Leaf vs Chevy Bolt

It’s one of the major questions for any electric-car buyer: How long will the battery pack last?

And what would it cost to replace it if I do need a new one sometime down the road?

Now a new video looks at that question, comparing the different thermal-management technologies in the batteries of the new 2018 Nissan Leaf and the Chevrolet Bolt EV electric car.

Want to know more about the battery life of a Battery Life Nissan Leaf vs Chevy Bolt?  Call our Customer Care Team now at 630-898-9630 or visit our website.

DON’T MISS: Chevrolet Bolt EV electric car: what’s inside the battery? Teardown video shows all

The presenter is John D. Kelly, a professor in the Auto Technology department of Weber State University in Ogden, Utah.

It’s one of several electric-car videos he’s done, including a recent pair on the removal and disassembly of the Chevrolet Bolt EV lithium-ion battery pack.

His presentations tend to be methodical, direct, and easy to follow, with a lot of detail presented in high-quality video.

The most recent presentation, running a bit over 7 minutes, is simpler than previous videos. Much of it is Kelly lecturing, in front of a Bolt EV on a lift.

He covers a lot of ground, though, starting with the active thermal management—meaning both heating and cooling—of GM’s battery packs in first the Chevy Volt plug-in hybrid and then the Bolt EV electric car.

Then he dives into the history of the passively cooled Nissan Leaf batteries, though he doesn’t delve into the specific history around capacity loss in some pre-2015 Leaf packs.

Battery Life Nissan Leaf vs Chevy BoltCHECK OUT: Electric car battery warranties compared

He notes that the second-generation 2018 Nissan Leaf has a page in the owner’s manual that discusses issues that affect the temperature and life of the battery.

That advice includes not storing the car in hot environments, and not recharging the battery right after the car is used—which may be a surprise to owners who come home, plug in the car, and forget about it until the next morning.

It also discourages frequent use of the fast-charging capability.

Battery Life Nissan Leaf vs Chevy Bolt

He goes through a partial list of the factors that Nissan says can affect Leaf battery life, as covered by the manual.

Then he looks at the considerably fewer warnings that Chevrolet offers in its own manual on factors that affect the Bolt EV’s battery life.

Kelly’s summary concludes Chevrolet’s thermal management of its batteries is “far superior” to that provided by Nissan in the Leaf, both the previous generation and the new 2018 version.

Battery Life Nissan Leaf vs Chevy Bolt – READ THIS: Tesla Model S battery life: what the data show so far

Broadly, it now seems safe to suggest that electric-car batteries with active liquid cooling (and heating) seem to have lower rates of capacity loss—especially under extreme conditions—than do those that use only passive air cooling, such as the Leaf’s.

Aggregated data from batteries in the Tesla Model S, for instance, suggests that capacity loss is only on the order of 10 percent even after 100,000 miles.

Jeep ad upsets conservationists

The head of one of the nation’s largest fish conservation groups says Fiat Chrysler Super Bowl ads “glorified” the destruction of aquatic habitat in an apparent attempt to appeal to off-road thrill seekers.

Jeep bad.  Chevy Good.  Want a Chevy?  Call our Customer Care Team now at 630-898-9630 or visit our website.

It’s the second time ads by the automaker have drawn complaints since the Feb. 4 game.

Trout Unlimited President and CEO Chris Wood said Wednesday one ad gave the impression that a Jeep Cherokee was splashing down the middle of a wild stream bed.

Fiat Chrysler is defending the ads but says there are no plans to run them again. It says one spot was shot on a flooded county road and another in a man-made lake with a man-made waterfall on private land.

Wood said many of his group’s 300,000 members and supporters own Jeeps, but the images were upsetting.

“Fish are tough and resilient critters, but they don’t do well with several-thousand-pound vehicles driving over their spawning grounds, tearing up the gravel where they lay eggs,” he said. “Why someone would want to put out the idea that you should buy a Jeep so you could drive it up a creek is incomprehensible to me.”

The Reno Gazette-Journal first reported the ad flap last week. Pam Harrington, Trout Unlimited’s Nevada field coordinator, told the newspaper she was upset because she’s worked with ATV clubs in Idaho repairing damage caused by irresponsible drivers.

Stream habitat improvements are part of the decades-long efforts to protect endangered salmon in the Pacific Northwest, where research shows river-bank disturbances and sedimentation chokes off fish eggs.

Wood said he didn’t learn until this week that much of his membership was upset over the Jeep ads. He said he’d already written a personal letter of complaint Feb. 6 to Fiat Chrysler CEO and chairman Sergio Marchionne after Wood’s son noticed the ad during the game.

Diane Morgan, FCA’s head of marketing communication, didn’t identify where the ad was shot on the county road that “experiences seasonable runoff” but said the other was on private land in the southwest United States.

The automaker came under fire last week for another Super Bowl ad featuring a Ram pickup set against audio of “The Drum Major Instinct” sermon delivered by Martin Luther King Jr. 50 years ago.

The 60-second spot included images of the truck with people helping others and hugging loved ones. Critics said it omitted King’s words in the same speech guarding against advertisers exploiting consumers, including: “In order to make your neighbors envious you must drive this type of car.”

A company spokeswoman said that ad “was selling the message of serving in your community.”

Wood said FCA apparently “got some bad marketing advice” on the Jeep campaign. He said there are plans to connect with a Jeep branch representative for a “broader conversation.”

“Hopefully something good will come of this and we can begin a dialogue with Jeep to promote smart use of off-road vehicles as well as conservation of natural resources,” Wood said.

The head of one of the nation’s largest fish conservation groups says Fiat Chrysler Super Bowl ads “glorified” the destruction of aquatic habitat in an apparent attempt to appeal to off-road thrill seekers.
