Start off New Year Strong

With manufacturer discounts totaling an average of $11,140, this is the time to start the New Year strong with a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado HD. It’s time to clear the remaining 2016 trucks off the lot at Chapman Chevrolet in Tempe. The discounts vary depending on the model, but for the highest discount you need to select the 2016 Silverado 2500 HD Crew Cab LT All Star four-wheel-drive. Other incentives range from $2,000 customer cash to 0 percent APR financing for 60 months.

2017 Rings in More Powerful Duramax Diesel

If you’d rather spend a few more dollars on this model year, Chevy has introduced the most powerful Duramax Diesel engine ever produced. The diesel provides a stunning 910 pound-feet of torque to allow you to tow more than nine tons or haul a payload of 3,534 pounds. The power isn’t the only good thing about the diesel, you’ll also get great fuel efficiency and a newly-designed hood with functional vents to help keep your engine operating at optimal temperatures. The diesel engine has been reimagined from the oil pan up, with stronger cylinder heads and a taller engine block to allow for more robust pistons. Bigger connecting rods and a proactive oil separator keep you running at top speed even when the going gets tough. Lest the thought of listening to a rumbling diesel engine turn you off from the new Chevy Silverado HD, the new Duramax Diesel has greatly reduced noise and engine vibration by using acoustic rocker covers, a lower oil pan and an all-new fuel system. Of course, the Silverado HD always has the option of a powerful 6.0L V8 gas engine.

Built in Gooseneck Great for Trailering

If you have a large fifth wheel travel or horse trailer, the Chevrolet Silverado HD with the available fifth wheel/gooseneck package is designed for you. With this package you can hook right up to your trailer and tow with the confidence you have the horsepower and handling to overcome any obstacle. Trailer sway control automatically detects when your trailer starts to drift and applies the brakes to bring it back in concert with the truck. An available diesel brake helps reduce the strain on your wheel brakes when descending from steep mountains, while a trailering camera system lets you keep an eye on your load, as well as eliminating blind spots. It’s also very handy to help you line up and connect when it’s time to go. See all the wonders that make the Silverado HD the perfect truck for towing and hauling by visiting Chapman Chevrolet in Tempe.

Newest Electric Vehicle a ‘Game Changer’

Unlike other companies’ entries into the Electric Vehicle (EV) market, the 2017 Chevy Bolt is an affordable commuter with tons of technology and a range that doesn’t require charging every day. Those are just some of the reasons the North American Car of the Year (NACTOY) organization picked the Bolt for its top prize. “The Bolt EV fulfills Chevrolet’s promise to offer an affordable, long-range electric,” according to VP of GM product development, Mark Reuss. “It is a game-changer that is not only a great electric vehicle; it’s a great vehicle – period.” Check in with the pros at Chapman Chevrolet to see when the new Bolt will be available for a test drive.

Bolt Offers Range, Range and More Range

With an estimated 238 miles of range, Bolt has the ability to get the average commuter through an entire week’s worth of driving without needing a charge. That solves one of the issues that has kept EVs from becoming more popular – the worry that a driver will be stranded with no way to get a charge. Starting at just $37,495 with available Federal tax credits of up to $7,500 depending on your tax situation, the Bolt is an incredibly affordable option for the average urban commuter who enjoys the thought of never stopping at a gas station again. The Bolt was also named the Motor Trend Car of the Year, as well as earning a spot on Car and Driver magazine’s 10Best Car list. Green Car Journal and Green Car reports also named it the best buy for the environment.

Learn the Advantages of EV Living

Head over to to learn about all the advantages of owning an EV. For Instance, did you know that if you currently get 20 mpg, travel 40 miles a day five times a week, you’d save more than $850 a year in fuel costs? You’ll also learn important facts about your new Bolt EV, such as the different charging options, whether or not the Bolt is the best fit for your needs, and what type of maintenance is required.

Bolt Comes in Two Trim Levels

The 2017 Chevy Bolt EV will be available soon at Chapman Chevrolet in two different trim packages. The Base LT is loaded with features, such as a 10.2-inch diagonal color touch screen infotainment system and a rear view camera. Step up in price a bit to the Premier for Surround Vision, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and more. Do your homework and determine if a switch to EV living suits your lifestyle, then head over to Chapman Chevrolet and test drive the all-new Bolt.

Wraps Come Off New Design January 9

If you can’t make it to the Detroit Auto Show, keep your eyes on the Internet on January 29 as the new Chevy Traverse makes its debut. With an exciting and athletic style, the midsize SUV seats up to 8 people with tons of second and third-row legroom along with ample cargo space. The Traverse will feature the new D-Optic headlights, a technology that delivers the same effect as natural daylight with a light quality that’s seamless. The 2018 Traverse joins the Chevy crossover/SUV club that includes the new Bolt EV, Trax, Equinox, Tahoe and Suburban. “Nobody in the industry offers a broader, fresher lineup of SUVs and crossovers than Chevrolet,” GM North America president Alan Batey said. “From the all-electric Bolt EV to America’s longest-running nameplate, Suburban, we’ve got something for every customer and lifestyle.”

Long-Awaited Bolt EV Coming Soon

Chevy’s much-anticipated, long-awaited Electric Vehicle (EV) is due to hit the showroom at Chapman Chevrolet very soon. The all-electric Bolt is the perfect urban commuter, providing up to 238 miles of range on a single charge and the ability to maneuver, and park, in a crowded city environment. With a miles per gallon equivalent of 119, the Bolt will be unaffected if gas prices decide to shoot up from record lows. The Bolt is expected to qualify for substantial Federal tax incentives.

Suburban’s Staying Power Testament to Quality

As the longest-running vehicle nameplate in the industry, the large Suburban remains a popular choice for large families or anyone who needs to transport people. First introduced in 1935, the Suburban had the lowest number of problems of any vehicle studied in last year’s JD Power Initial Quality report. With the four-wheel drive option, the full-size Suburban is a beast in the ice and snow, making it popular with those who live in the mountains or those who enjoy snowboarding and skiing. The Suburban’s little brother, the Tahoe, is also a popular choice for those who don’t need quite as much room.

Trax and Equinox Popular with Smaller Families

The Trax and Equinox offer people with smaller hauling needs a great option for commuting and weekend adventures. Both have a fresh look this year, with turbocharged engines and a host of new technology. Once the new Chevy Traverse is revealed, the automaker will have more crossovers and SUVs to choose from than any other automaker. Schedule a trip to Chapman Chevrolet so you can compare the models and choose the one that’s best for you.
