2019 CHEVROLET COLORADO WT: WHY I’D BUY IT

2019 CHEVROLET COLORADO WT: WHY I’D BUY IT — KELLY LIN

“What truck should I buy?” It’s a question consumers ask themselves every day, but what would online editor Kelly Lin drive?

Chevrolet ColoradoI learned to drive in an old 1995 Ford Ranger. It was dependable, and it lasted forever, but this was the era when pickups really felt like trucks. The ride was firmer, handling was more distant, and I’m convinced it wasn’t meant for someone 5’2″ because I couldn’t see out the front windshield without sitting on a phone book or cushion. Fortunately, smaller pickups have become much more livable since then, to the point that they can make solid active-lifestyle vehicles for those who don’t want an SUV.

Looking for a Colorado?  Call our Customer Care Team at 630-898-9630 or visit us online.

The list of competitors in the space keeps growing, with the most recent newcomer being the Jeep Gladiator, which is a bit expensive for my budget at $35,040 and above. Other strong rivals include the Toyota Tacoma, Honda Ridgeline, and recently revived Chevrolet Colorado and Ford Ranger. If I were in the market, I would choose the Colorado, in part because it has one of the most compliant rides of its competitors. The Ridgeline also excels in this category, but to be honest, I don’t love the look of the unibody Honda. And I’m not tempted by the Colorado’s more upmarket twin, the GMC Canyon.

The Colorado also benefits from sharp handling. It feels smaller than it really is, and it’s easy to maneuver into small parking spaces. When you need to haul, the 5-foot bed swallows up your gear better than many rivals with the same bed size, as we learned in our recent midsize pickup comparison test, which the Colorado won with flying colors. It maintains a solid ride when loaded, and a handy bed step makes it easy to unload at the end of the day. While I wouldn’t be filling the bed with bales of hay, I would make use of the bed for sports gear.

Since I prefer a car-like feel to the trucks I drive, acceleration is important. When equipped with a V-6 gas engine, the Colorado is quicker and more powerful than competitors. Packing 308 hp, a Colorado Z71 we tested reached 60 mph in 6.4 seconds, making it much peppier than gas and diesel four-cylinder Colorados we’ve run in the eight- and nine-second range. The V-6 is the engine I would pick, as the extra quickness comes with a relatively small sacrifice in fuel economy—18/25/20 mpg city/highway/combined compared to 20/26/22 mpg with the four-cylinder gas engine. There aren’t too many diesel pumps in my area, so I wouldn’t consider the fuel-sipping Duramax version.

Managing my needs for passenger and cargo space, I would opt for the crew cab and short box. When paired with the sprightly V-6 engine, the base Work Truck model has everything I need. That includes a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, four-way power driver seat, dual USB ports, and rearview camera. Prices for this version start at a reasonable $29,280.

NEW YORK — General Motors will auction the final production seventh generation Chevrolet Corvette this summer, with the proceeds benefiting the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation.

The announcement, along with confirmation of the Next Generation Corvette’s development, was made this evening by General Motors Chairman and CEO Mary Barra, who was honored at the foundation’s annual Footsteps to the Future Gala in New York.

“GM, GMC and Chevrolet support the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation and its commitment to injured and fallen military members, first responders and their families,” said Barra. “The sale of this iconic Corvette will help the foundation continue its good work, and pave the way for the Next Generation Corvette that we will introduce on July 18.”

The final seventh gen Corvette — a black 2019 Z06 model — will be auctioned at the Barrett-Jackson Northeast sale in Connecticut June 28. Registration information is available at www.barrett-jackson.com.

Every dollar of the winning bid will go to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, named for New York City firefighter Stephen Siller, who died during the Sept. 11 attacks.

The foundation builds mortgage-free, accessible smart homes for the most catastrophically injured service members and helps pay off the mortgages for families of first responders killed in the line of duty. More information is available at www.tunnel2towers.org.

“The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation thanks GM, GMC and Chevrolet for  supporting the brave men and women of our armed forces and our first responders,” said Frank Siller, chairman and CEO. “This generous gift will help us provide more injured veterans with the independence they deserve.”

For the past five years, GMC has supported the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation as its national foundation of choice. In that time, it has helped the foundation raise more than $10 million. That includes $2.2 million raised last year, with $925,000 of it coming from the auction of the first production 2019 Corvette ZR1. It was purchased by Chevrolet dealer and NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick at the 2018 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale sale.

Other money has come from employee donations and events across the country such as 5K Tunnel to Towers races and other activities sponsored by GMC dealers.

GM is committed to helping those who have given so much for their country. GM’s current and retired workforce includes 60,000 veterans.

Joe Girard, world’s best car salesman dies

Joe Girard, right, with his first customer, who is shown here buying another car in 1977, shortly before Girard’s “retirement.”

Joe Girard, an author and speaker famous for his long-standing Guinness Book of World Records title as the world’s best car salesman, died Feb. 28 at age 90 from injuries incurred from a fall in his home.

Girard sustained head trauma after falling backward on the stairs in his home in Grosse Pointe Shores, Mich., the Detroit Free Press first reported. He died in the hospital two days later.

Girard won the annual title as the world’s No. 1 car salesman from 1966 through 1977, and he sold 13,001 vehicles in 15 years at Merollis Chevrolet in suburban Detroit. In 1973, Girard set the record for most cars sold by a salesman in one year: 1,425. In 2001, he was inducted into the Automotive Hall of Fame.

Sales tactics

Throughout his career, Girard was an eccentric, speaking often of himself in the third person. He refused to talk to co-workers outside of a “Good morning,” and always ate lunch at his desk so he could dedicate every minute to selling. He paid for customer referrals, wined and dined supervisors at big local companies who knew many people and could send them his way.

Girard made sure his customers were his dealership’s priority, too. He often picked up the tab himself if a customer’s vehicle needed a minor repair, and he hosted an annual barbecue at his home for service department members and their families to ensure his customers were treated well. Girard handed out buttons with his personal logo — an apple with a bite taken out, emblazoned with the words “I like you.”

Girard retired from car sales at age 49 are began writing books, including How to Close Every Sale and How to Sell Yourself.

Record keeper?

Girard was fiercely protective of the Guinness title. Last year, a salesman in Dearborn, Mich., claimed to have shattered Girard’s record. Ali Reda, of Les Stanford Chevrolet and Les Stanford Cadillac, said he sold 1,582 vehicles in 2017, a claim supported by General Motors. Reda said he obtained the skills to break the record through reading Girard’s book, How to Sell Anything to Anybody.

Girard sued Reda, “claiming loss of reputation in the community and economic loss, including, but not limited to, loss of book sales, loss of income, loss of opportunities and loss of earning capacity,” according to the lawsuit filed in Wayne County Circuit Court.

Guinness said it would not update the category because of GM’s stake in the game. Without an objective third-party to ascertain the record was broken, Guinness declared Girard the winner by default.

10 things about the 2019 Chevy Blazer

1. Unibody foundation: Unlike the previous-generation Blazers, the new 2019 Chevy Blazer will not be an old-school body-on-frame SUV. Instead, it’s based on a unibody platform that’s also used for the GMC Acadia.

2. Three trim levels: Entry-level versions will simply be known as Blazer. The sportier-looking RS will occupy the middle of the lineup, while the Premier will be the most luxurious, range-topping example.

Will the New Chevrolet Blazer Help Sustain General Motors’ Profit Boom?

General Motors (NYSE: GM) revealed an all-new crossover SUV last week. The 2019 Chevrolet Blazer is a “two-row” (five-passenger) midsize SUV that will slot in between the huge-selling Chevrolet Equinox and the big Chevy Traverse when it begins arriving at U.S. dealers early next year.

While a few GM fans grumbled about its name — the original Chevy Blazers were brawny truck-based SUVs; this one isn’t — GM shareholders should welcome the new family friendly Blazer: It’s the latest addition to what has been a very profitable line of products for GM.

For additional information on the all new Chevy Blazer, please contact our customer care team at 630-898-9630.

Big sales gains for GM’s new crossovers — so far

“Crossover SUV” is the industry’s term for an SUV built on a sedan-like unibody architecture. They’ve become wildly popular for good reasons: They offer most of the advantages of the traditional truck-based SUVs that were popular 15 years ago, but they’re lighter in weight, they drive more like sedans than trucks, and they have much better fuel economy.

To say that GM has been making hay on this trend is an understatement. There’s a truism in the auto industry: Vehicles generate the best sales and margins when they’re brand new. And when the new vehicle is in a hot-selling segment, sales (and profits) can be very significant.

Nearly all of GM’s crossovers are brand new or significantly refreshed since the beginning of 2016. Sales of the group were very strong in 2017, and they’ve continued to be strong so far this year.

Vehicle U.S. sales YTD through May Change vs. 2017
Buick Enclave 17,943 11.8%
Buick Encore 44,278 23.8%
Buick Envision 14,255 (19)%
Cadillac XT5 27,531 11.4%
Chevrolet Equinox 141,477 35.7%
Chevrolet Traverse 61,708 33.6%
Chevrolet Trax 37,173 19.7%
GMC Acadia 43,452 (9.7)%
GMC Terrain 53,463 45.4%
TOTAL 441,280 22.4%

Data source: Automotive News estimates.

With that said, here’s the key thing that investors need to know about the all-new Blazer: It’s an addition to the lineup, not a replacement for an outgoing model. I won’t get into all the technical details of the new Blazer here, but the thing to know is that in terms of both size and price, it’ll slot in between the Chevrolet Equinox and Traverse.

You’ll note that those are the two best-selling vehicles on that chart. The new Blazer will aim to push that total higher — capturing buyers who might find the Equinox to be a bit small, but who don’t need the seven-passenger capacity of the big Traverse.

If there’s a sweet spot to the crossover market, that might be it.

2018 Chevy Suburban z71 midnight edition

Suburban z71 midnight editionChevrolet’s cool-looking Z71 Midnight Edition package is offered on Tahoe and Suburban sport utilities, as well as on the Silverado pickups.Over the

Chevrolet’s cool-looking Z71 Midnight Edition package is offered on Tahoe and Suburban sport utilities, as well as on the Silverado pickups.

Looking for a full size sport ute?  Call our Customer Care Team at 630-898-9630.  Or, visit our website 24/7.

Over the past year, I’ve tested Silverado 1500 and Tahoe models with the Midnight package, and this past week, I also got to spend time in the Suburban version, which is 20.3 inches longer than the similarly equipped Tahoe.

The Suburban is Chevrolet’s original sport utility vehicle, introduced in 1935 and a star of the Chevy lineup ever since — particularly in Texas, where it’s among the most-popular motor vehicles ever.

Like its siblings, the Suburban has great road presence, and is quite hard to ignore. That’s made even more so by the Midnight Edition’s jet-black exterior color, along with blacked wheels and body trim.

The Suburban essentially is the same vehicle as the Tahoe, except at the rear. The cargo compartment is extended, giving the Suburban 39.3 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third-row seat — 24 cubic feet more than the Tahoe, at 15.3 cubic feet.

The Tahoe/Suburban and its siblings received their last full makeover for 2015, and the Midnight Edition package was added a year later. It’s also available on the Silverado Crew Cab pickup, which is almost the same vehicle underneath as the Suburban and Tahoe — it just has the cargo area turned into an open truck bed. The Silverado Midnight Edition has much the same look as the Suburban and Tahoe versions, with the same black wheels and trim.

Our Suburban tester was the four-wheel-drive LT trim level, with a base price of $58,280 (plus $1,295 freight) before adding the Z71Midnight Edition Package ($2,285). With the package came the 18-inch black-painted aluminum wheels, blackwall all-terrain tires, black tubular assist steps, black roof rack, tow hooks, underbody skid plate package, 3.42 rear axle ratio, Autotrac active two-speed transfer case, hill-descent control, front and rear black Chevy bowties, Z71 grille decals, high-capacity air cleaner and Z71 rubber floor mats. The vehicle came with a black interior, too.

Also included on our tester was the Suburban Luxury Package ($2,860), which added passive entry with remote keyless start, heated second-row seats, third-row 60/40 split bench seat with power fold, power tilt/telescopic steering column, heated steering wheel, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-change alert with side blind-zone alert, power/heated outside mirrors with turn signals, hands-free power liftgate, front and rear park assist, and front fog lights.

We also had a Chevy MyLink audio/navigation system with eight-inch color touch screen ($495) and a power sunroof ($995). Dealer-installed wheel locks were an additional $70.

Our Suburban was powered by a 5.3-liter Ecotec3 V-8 engine with 355 horsepower and 383 foot-pounds of torque. It was paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, although Chevrolet now offers a 10-speed automatic with the optional 6.2-liter V-8.

With three rows of seats, the Suburban can carry up to eight passengers — two up front, and three each in the middle and third rows. But our tester came with power second-row bucket seats ($795), which replaced the second-row bench seat, and cut the passenger capacity to seven.

The 39.3 cubic-foot cargo area behind the third row is big enough for luggage and sports gear for a long family trip. With the third row folded, it expands to 76.7 cubic feet; and with middle and rear seats folded, there is 121.7 cubic feet of cargo space.

For 2018, Suburban prices begin at $50,200 (plus freight) for the base rear-wheel-drive LS model. It’s available with four-wheel drive at all trim levels. There is a rotary dial on the dash to the left of the steering column that has setting for 2WD, Automatic, 4WD High or 4WD Low, which is a low-range setting for serious off-road driving.

The Suburban is a very pleasant highway vehicle, with a quiet cabin, smooth ride, and a more-efficient powertrain than the previous generation.

It has a 31-gallon fuel tank, compared with 26 gallons for the Tahoe. EPA ratings for our four-wheel-drive tester were 15 mpg city/22 highway/18 combined. During our week in the Suburban, with about a 60-40 mix of highway-city driving, we averaged just over 18 mpg.

Among standard exterior features are Intellibeam headlights, rain-sensing wipers, a 17-inch steel spare wheel/tire, and trailering equipment.

Inside, the heated leather front bucket seats were quite comfortable, with power adjustments for driver and passenger. There were power-adjustable pedals, with memory for the driver’s seat and the pedals.

An auto-dimming rearview mirror was standard, along with tri-zone automatic climate control, universal garage/gate opener, and Bose premium audio.

There was plenty of power from the 5.3-liter engine, and with the four-wheel drive, the Suburban can tow trailers weighing up to 8,000 pounds.

To help boost fuel economy, the engine has technologies such as direct fuel injection, continuously variable valve timing and an advanced combustion system.

Among other suspension and mechanical features are a coil-over-shock front suspension, five-link/coil-spring rear suspension, a wide rear track, electric power steering, and standard automatic-locking rear differential.

Included on all models is a four-wheel antilock disc-brake system featuring the GM Duralife brake rotors, designed to last twice as long as conventional rotors.

For connectivity, the Suburban has a 4G LTE Hot Spot (built-in Wi-Fi) that’s active when the ignition is on, allowing everyone in the vehicle to connect to the Web. Our vehicle also had GM’s OnStar system and SiriusXM satellite radio.

We had a 12-volt DC and two USB ports in the cubby in front where there is a small open cubby perfect for portable devices; there is also a nifty hidden compartment behind the audio-nav touch screen, opened by a touch of a button below the screen, with a USB port inside. It’s perfect for hiding away your smartphone. There were two USB ports, an auxiliary input and another 12-volt outlet inside the center console, which also doubled as an armrest for the driver and front passenger.

In the center console are dual cupholders. Middle-row passengers had a cupholder and bottle holder in each door, while third-row passengers had two cupholders in the tops of the wheel arches.

There were seatback pockets on the front seats, accessible to the middle row, and there were also air conditioning controls, a 115-volt AC outlet, and a 12-volt outlet for the rear passengers.

Safety features include front and rear automatic braking, which uses radar and ultrasonic sensors to help avoid low-speed collisions; GM’s Safety Alert driver’s seat; and a backup-camera system.

With $7,500 in options and the freight charge added to the base price, the total sticker price for our 2018 Suburban LT Z71 Midnight Edition four-wheel drive was $67,075.

GM Puts Chevrolet City Express Cargo Van on Hold

GM Puts Chevrolet City Express Cargo Van on HoldGeneral Motors says it has enough Chevrolet City Express units to handle supply for the rest of the year and will put production on hold.

Nearly four months into 2018, General Motors has put production of the Chevrolet City Express small cargo van on hold.

We still have the Chevy City Express in stock.  Call our Customer Care Team at 630-898-9630 before they are gone for good!

GM had contracted Nissan to build the van, a rebadged Nissan NV200. Both are built at Nissan’s factory in Cuernavaca, Mexico, but the City Express is sold by Chevrolet through its own dealer network.

The Chevrolet City Express went on sale in late 2014 but has never been a big seller. The automaker sold 5,712 of the vans last year.  Nissan, by comparison, sold 18,602 NV200s last year. Other competitors include the Ford Transit Connect — 34,473 units sold in 2017 — and the Ram ProMasterCity, which sold 15,584 units.

GM Puts Chevrolet City Express Cargo Van on Hold“The last 2018 model year units were produced in February 2018. Chevrolet and GM Fleet believe 2018 production, combined with existing inventory and factory orders, will be sufficient to meet demand this year,” a GM spokesperson told Trucks.com.

The City Express never came off as a wholehearted compact work van effort, said Ed Kim, vice president of industry analysis at the AutoPacific consulting firm.

“It was a true badge engineering exercise,” Kim said. “It seemed like there was not-invented-here syndrome going on, with relatively little marketing investment in the vehicle.”

The disappearance of the City Express from the compact commercial van market will probably not be felt much in the marketplace, he said.

Ford leads the market, having leveraged its sales efforts across a full range of commercial vehicles that starts at the Transit Connect and goes up through Class 7 heavy-duty trucks.

Chevrolet appears to have scrapped the van as it gets ready to roll out a slew of electric vehicles, said

Sam Abuelsamid, a senior analyst at Navigant Research. He said one vehicle is likely to be a small electric cargo van.

“Such a vehicle is ripe for electrification since they mainly operate in cities and don’t generally get used for long-haul routes,” he said. “Another thing to watch for is a bespoke autonomous vehicle that follows up the Bolt AV. This is likely to be a flexible type of vehicle that can be quickly adapted from carrying passengers to cargo as needed during the course of the day.”

Chevrolet has a 150-day inventory of the City Express, so it has plenty of vans to sell for the rest of the year, said Eric Anderson, an analyst at IHS Markit.

“The cancellation of the Chevrolet City Express will allow inventory to be depleted and to focus on higher volume vehicles as this remained more of a niche offering in the segment,” Anderson said.

For its part, Nissan said it was happy with sales figures for the NV200.

“NV200 experienced a record-setting 2017 and is excelling again in 2018, with sales up 6 percent year-over-year through February,” a spokesperson told Trucks.com.

The 2018 City Express starts at $22,855. Chevrolet has not yet updated its City Express product page with information about the 2018 model.
