Three Chevys Make IIHS' Recommended Used Vehicles for Teen Drivers - 07/22/2014

Three Chevys Make IIHS' Recommended Used Vehicles for Teen Drivers

CHESHIRE, Conn. – As a teenager, you dream of a brand new car the moment you turn 16, but for most young drivers the reality is an older used vehicle. In fact, many teens drive a 2006 model year or earlier vehicle which means they are lacking many important safety features and technologies that are standard on new cars. So, to help you navigate your budget and concerns, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety released their first list of recommended used vehicles for teen drivers.

What's even better is that three Chevys made IIHS' List of Recommended Used Vehicles for Teen Drivers which means you don't have to compromise budget or safety when it comes to your young driver's vehicle! The Chevy Malibu midsize sedan, Chevy Equinox midsize crossover SUV, and Chevy Traverse large crossover SUV all earned Good ratings in IIHS moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests; at least four out of five stars in federal government crash tests; and offer standard stability control to help avoid rollover crashes – making the IIHS' Best Choices (under $20,000) list!

While three Chevys made IIHS' List of Recommended Used Vehicles for Teen Drivers giving you and your teen options when it comes to a safe used vehicle, behavior is also an important factor to remember when your young driver hits the road. A recent Safe Kids Worldwide report funded by a $2-million GM Foundation grant, reveals that motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death to teens between the ages of 13 and 19! Even more, half of those who died were not wearing their seatbelt!

Safety is always our top priority so when your teen is ready to get behind the wheel, let us help with our Cheshire Area Chevy Cars For SaleRichard Chevrolet, located at 1405 Highland Ave. Cheshire, CT 06410, has been family owned and operated since 1975!

2015 Chevy Silverado Gets 8-Speed Transmission - 07/22/2014

2015 Chevy Silverado Gets 8-Speed Transmission

CHESHIRE, Conn. – Drivers behind the wheel of one of the most popular light-duty pickup trucks will soon be able to feel more confident with both heavy and light loads because an eight-speed automatic transmission has been confirmed for the 2015 Chevy Silverado!

Chevrolet has confirmed that an eight-speed automatic transmission will come standard on all 2015 Chevy Silverado pickup trucks equipped with the 6.2L EcoTec3 V-8 engine! Approximately the same weight and size as the six-speed transmission, the new GM-developed Hydra-Matic 8L90 will offer a few specific advantages over the six-speed. Drivers trailering or towing heavy loads can enjoy more confident starts thanks to the wider, 7.0 overall gear ratio spread, and numerically lower rear axle ratios allow for reduced engine rpm on the highway. Plus, for those with lighter loads, the 8L90 can seamlessly switch to four-cylinder operation to improve fuel economy!

At 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque, the Silverado's 6.2L EcoTec3 V-8 is the most powerful engine offered in the light-duty pickup truck segment. Coupled with the new eight-speed automatic transmission, the 2015 Silverado is going to be unstoppable when production begins sometime during the fourth quarter of 2014!

Whatever your truck needs may be, Chevrolet is there to help!

2015 Chevy Traverse Earns NHTSA 5-Star Safety Rating

CHESHIRE, Conn. – At the risk of sounding like a broken record, another GM vehicles has just earned a 5-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration! Chevy has been vocal about the fact that safety is the #1 priority in every vehicle, and they are living up to that commitment with the latest 5-star safety rating for the 2015 Chevrolet Traverse!

While you probably know that the NHTSA safety ratings provide consumers with information on a vehicle's rollover and crash protection, did you know that the rating program was actually created to test vehicles beyond what federal law requires? So when we say that the 2015 Chevy Traverse just earned a 5-star NHTSA Safety Rating, that's an impressive accomplishment! Equipped with electronic stability control, antilock brakes, a rearview camera system, tire-pressure monitoring system, and available forward collision alert and lane-departure warning systems, the 2015 Traverse crossover earned a five star rating in both the front and side crash tests and a four star rating in the rollover test.

With this 5-star rating, the Traverse joins the slew of other Chevy models that have earned top safety ratings, providing you with a great selection of safe cars, trucks, and SUVs to choose from!

Tips to Prevent Child Deaths in Hot Cars - 07/09/2014

Tips to Prevent Child Deaths in Hot Cars

CHESHIRE, Conn. – It's a devastating story that has become all too common – children dying after being left in hot cars. To most it seems crazy that you could possibly forget that your child is in the backseat of the car, but last year 44 children died as a result of being left in hot cars! And this year is no different, it seems like every other day we hear about another horrifying accident where a child is left in the blazing heat.

SafeKids.org has discovered one factor that remains consistent among these situations: "The driver, whether it’s the mother, father of some other driver, is doing something out of ordinary routine.” It takes just minutes for the temperature inside a vehicle to skyrocket when it is hot outside, so please do your part to put a stop to these tragedies by remembering these tips to prevent child deaths in hot cars!

– First off, never EVER leave a child alone in a vehicle, even if you are just running a quick errand!

– One of the most effective ways to remind yourself that your child is in the backseat is to place an item that you need in the backseat as well. Whether that's your briefcase, purse, cell phone, lunch, office keys, or even your left shoe, you will have to check the backseat before you leave the vehicle.

– Another option is to keep a stuffed animal or toy in your child's unoccupied car seat. When you put your child in that seat, move the item to the front passenger seat to remind yourself that your little one is in the back.

– Make opening your vehicle's rear door a habit every time you leave the vehicle so that you can prevent your child being forgotten in their car seat.

– Last but not least, if you see a child alone in a vehicle, call 911 and get them out right away!

It's heart-breaking to hear about children who have died because they were left inside a hot vehicle, so please help us prevent this from happening! If you have any questions about your vehicle's safety, please let us help! Richard Chevrolet, located at 1405 Highland Ave. Cheshire, CT 06410, has been family owned and operated since 1975!

Summer Maintenance Checks For Your Vehicle - 07/01/2014

Summer Maintenance Checks For Your Vehicle

CHESHIRE, Conn. – Summer is here and it's time to hit the open road for a good ole' road trip! But before you get out of town, make sure your vehicle is prepared to handle this season's driving conditions with some simple summer maintenance checks for your vehicle.

To ensure everything runs smoothly as the temperature rises, the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) recommends these Summer Maintenance Checks for your Vehicle:

1. Avoid overheating and a summer breakdown by having your cooling system checked, flushed, and refilled if necessary. The biggest cause of summer vehicle breakdowns is overheating, according to the ASE.

2. You don't want to end up sweltering in the summer heat due to a broken air conditioning system, so while your mechanic is checking the cooling system have them check the air conditioning and fluids too.

3. After a rough winter, your windshield wiper blades have likely taken a beating from the snow and ice. Make sure you aren't left unable to see the road during a summer storm by replacing your wiper blades and filling up your washer fluid.

4. In addition to rotating your tires every 5,000 miles, pay attention to their condition. When the temperature rises, the hot weather can cause the air inside the tires to expand, leading to a possible blowout if the tires are in poor condition.

5. Change your oil regularly. You've heard this maintenance tip time and time again, but it is important to follow the recommendations in your vehicle's owner's manual based on your driving conditions to keep your vehicle in good condition.

If you have a road trip planned this summer and want to make sure your vehicle is prepared, schedule an appointment at Richard Chevrolet and we will make sure your vehicle is ready to keep you safe when you hit the road!

Transformers Transforms Chevy Camaro Into Dream Car - 06/24/2014

Transformers Transforms Chevy Camaro Into Dream Car

CHESHIRE, Conn. – With the release of the new Transformers 4: Age of Extinction movie this weekend, enthusiasts are looking forward to the eye candy that are the Transformer vehicles. While they are all impressive, none has received more attention than the fifth-gen Chevrolet Camaro, or Bumblebee. No Hollywood director would turn down the irresistable offer of a full supply of Camaros for a film, but turns out the Camaro got the better end of the deal when Transformers transformed the Chevy Camaro into a dream car!

Generations ago, Lamborghini Countach or Ferrari F40 posters would be hanging on the walls of young children or car enthusiasts, but thanks to the movie series, Transformers transformed the Chevy Camaro into a dream car that is actually a realistic dream for today's fans. Especially through the economic difficulties of recent years, the Camaro has filled the spot of previous supercars, rekindling the dreams of enthusiasts with each movie release.

While the Transformers movies have been influenced by the Camaro and Bumblebee's popularity, the films have also impacted the Camaro. With director Michael Bay's input that the performance car needed a refresh, the North Hollywood Design center took his request seriously and gave the Camaro an update that is leaner, bolder, and more menacing.

Not only is Bumblebee a superhero in Transformers, but the Chevy Camaro is a superhero in the hearts and driveways of fans all over. Don't miss the release of Transformers 4: Age of Extinction this weekend, and if it leaves you wanting your own Camaro, come see us!

2015 Chevy Colorado Horsepower & Specifications - 06/17/2014

2015 Chevy Colorado Horsepower & Specifications

CHESHIRE, Conn. – Since Chevrolet's new midsize truck made its debut, we haven't heard too much regarding the details of the 2015 Chevy Colorado's horsepower and specifications. Until now! Leaked details from GM's new Colorado order guide are giving us a look at exactly what the midsize truck will offer.

Advanced ordering information just released by General Motors reveals the 2015 Chevy Colorado's horsepower and specifications! So let's get to it! The truck's base 2.5-liter I-4 engine will offer 200 HP while the optional 3.6-liter V-6 bumps up horsepower to 305. Both of these figures are higher than what we originally expected from the Colorado. In addition, the V-6 offers a class-leading 7,000-pound towing rating, and the base I-4 offers the class-typical 3,500-pound rating. While fuel economy figures were not released with the Colorado advanced ordering information, the 2WD I-4 Base and Work models will be available with a six-speed manual transmission while the rest of the models will receive a mandatory automatic 6-speed transmission. Inside the truck, passengers will enjoy standard power windows and four-way power driver seats. Rear view cameras will also be standard on all models including the Base and Work models!

Anticipation has been running high for the new midsize Chevrolet Colorado truck, and if GM's advance ordering information tells us anything, it's going to be a strong competitor in its segment!

GM Trademarks "GearOn" Name - 06/11/2014

GM Trademarks "GearOn" Name

CHESHIRE, Conn. – The full-size pickup truck market is as competitive as ever with trucks that offer more power, capability, performance, and convenience than ever before. But of course manufacturers continue to search for areas of improvement and work to improve the vehicles in an effort to beat out the competition, which is exactly what General Motors is doing with a new USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office) filing.

In a continuous effort to deliver what customers are looking for while offering a better product than the competition, GM is trademarking "GearOn" according to a recent USPTO filing. It has been reported that the automaker will use the name "GearOn" for a feature described as a “truck bed cargo system comprised of tiered storage cross rails, utility rack stanchions, cargo dividers and cargo tie down rings.”

So for all our truck fans, stay tuned for more details on GM's "GearOn" trademark and what looks like an exciting new addition to General Motors truck beds! If your needs require a Chevrolet truck before "GearOn" is implemented, come see us and we will help you find a vehicle that meets your needs!

2015 Chevy Corvette Most Powerful Corvette Ever Built - 06/10/2014

2015 Chevy Corvette Most Powerful Corvette Ever Built

CHESHIRE, Conn. – While the Corvette Z06 supercar has already been referred to as the most powerful Corvette in history, it wasn't officially confirmed. However, the official verdict is out and at 650 HP, the 2015 Chevy Corvette Z06 is the most powerful Corvette ever built!

Supercar is no exaggeration. Official horsepower and torque ratings for the new LT4-powered Corvette Z06 have just been released by GM, and with a 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 engine that pumps out 650 HP and 650 lb.-ft. of torque, not only is the 2015 Chevy Corvette Z06 the most powerful Corvette ever built, but it is one of the most powerful vehicles available in today's market! General Motors engineers specifically designed the supercar to offer a more flexible curve torque for better on-demand power at any rpm – the supercharged engine's horsepower peak happens at 6400 rpm and the torque peak happens at 3600 rpm.

But that's not all. the 2015 Z06 is making even more history thanks to the LT4 engine's 650 horsepower rating which makes it the highest output engine ever sold in a General Motors product! The engine embodies many of the same technologies seen in the standard Stingray's LT1 engine, like LT1 like direct injection, cylinder deactivation, and variable valve timing. In order to accomplish a 200 horsepower increase though, engineers incorporated stronger cylinder heads, lightweight titanium intake valves, lighter steel connecting rods, special aluminum pistons, a stainless steel exhaust manifold, and a 1.7-liter supercharger!

Whether you'd prefer a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, you can own a part of history when the 2015 Corvette Z06 arrives in showrooms in early 2015! But if you'd like to get your hands on Chevrolet power and capability before that, come see us! Richard Chevrolet, located at 1405 Highland Ave. Cheshire, CT 06410, has been family owned and operated since 1975!

Stop/Start Technology Standard on 2015 Chevy Impala - 05/27/2014

Stop/Start Technology Standard on 2015 Chevy Impala

CHESHIRE, Conn. – Today's automotive technology is advancing at such a rapid pace, it can be hard to keep up sometimes. But one of the great benefits is that much of that technology results in greater fuel efficiency in our vehicles which means more money in our pockets. Even better, Chevrolet is making fuel efficiency and money saving standard on the 2015 Chevy Impala with standard stop/start technology!

What does that mean exactly? Well the sedan already boasts some pretty great mpg ratings, but making stop/start technology standard on the 2015 Chevy Impala will result in a 5% increase in fuel economy to 22 mpg city, 31 mpg highway, and 25 mpg combined. Available on the 2.5-liter ECOTEC engine, the Impala will be the second vehicle in the Chevy lineup to adopt standard stop/start technology following extensive research with General Motors.

Stop/start allows your vehicle to conserve fuel by shutting down the engine in certain driving conditions. However a key factor in the development of the technology was making sure its operation, engaging and disengaging the engine, is seamless to the customer. Software engineers also took into account "change-of-mind events" where you may begin to stop but then quickly accelerate. Since the system takes into account driving conditions, battery charge, cabin temperature, and more, it can calculate whether or not the engine should come to a stop without interrupting your driving.

While Chevrolet's start/stop technology may sound complicated, it will soon be standard on more than just the Impala and Malibu. Stop by to see us if you have any questions about how the technology works! Richard Chevrolet, located at 1405 Highland Ave. Cheshire, CT 06410, has been family owned and operated since 1975!

Memorial Day Safety Tips - 05/23/2014

Memorial Day Safety Tips

CHESHIRE, Conn. – It's finally Friday and you're probably gearing up for your Memorial Day weekend celebrations. Whether you're headed out of town, out on the water, or out to your backyard, keep these Memorial Day Safety Tips in mind to ensure an exciting weekend that is accident free!

Memorial Day Safety Tips

Travel Safety
The Memorial Day travel forecast is expected to reach 36 million travelers, so exercising additional safety is important when you hit the road. First, make sure your vehicle has been serviced and is ready for the trip. Then when you get behind the wheel, always wear your seatbelt and keep a close eye on what's happening on the road around you. And as always, never drink and drive, or drive with anyone who has been drinking!

Water Safety
Whether you're hitting the beach or the boat, it's important to be cautious around water especially when children are present. Make sure you have the proper flotation devices and that there is always a 'designated watcher' to keep an eye on children around the water. Again, alcohol becomes extremely dangerous when you are operating a boat or are looking to swim in the water, so it's best to avoid it.

Fire Safety
If you're firing up the grill this weekend, prevent any grease fires by giving the grill a good clean before putting it to use. Then, before turning it on, place the grill in a well ventilated area that is at least 10 feet away from the house, porch, garage, etc. Don't forget to always keep a close eye on any children or pets that are around while the grill is hot.

Food Safety
Once the grill is clean, make sure that you cook your food thoroughly, especially poultry, pork, and ground beef, to prevent any food borne illnesses. After you handle the raw meat, make sure to wash your hands and workspace too. Then when you're finished eating, refrigerate any perishable foods within two hours.

Sun Safety
Don't forget to practice sun safety not only this weekend but all summer long. Lather up with sunscreen and throw on a hat and sunglasses before heading outside. It's also important to stay hydrated by drinking lots of water since spending lots of time in the sun can dehydrate you.

Whatever your Memorial Day plans consist of, keep these five safety tips in mind before the celebrations get underway. Wishing you a happy and safe Memorial Day! Richard Chevrolet, located at 1405 Highland Ave. Cheshire, CT 06410, has been family owned and operated since 1975!

OnStar 4G LTE Pricing for GM - 05/16/2014

OnStar 4G LTE Pricing for GM

CHESHIRE, Conn. – Pretty much anywhere we go these days we can connect to Wi-Fi and enjoy a high-speed data connection. But the one place we haven't been able to take advantage of that technology yet is in our vehicles, until now! And now we know how much it will cost to enjoy because OnStar 4G LTE pricing was just announced!

We know what you're thinking, it must cost a fortune to enjoy OnStar's 4G LTE high-speed data for GM vehicles, right? Well not so much! The new technology starts at just $5 per month for current OnStar subscribers! However, equipped vehicles will get a trial period of three months or three gigabytes, whichever comes first, so that you can see if you even like it before you commit to a monthly plan. If you decide you want to keep the in-car data connection, current AT&T customers can simply add the vehicle to an existing Mobile Share Plan for $10 per month, or you can take advantage of the OnStar 4G LTE pricing below. To provide some reference, 200 MB of data will allow you to stream more than 6.5 hours of music, surf the web for 13 hours, or send more than 10,000 emails without attachments. Not to mention, the data connection also improves safety and security services for OnStar subscribers.

OnStar 4G LTE Pricing for GM

If you'd prefer not to commit to a monthly plan, there are options for you too. OnStar's one-time purchase packages allow you to either select a one day plan or a long-term 12 month plan that allows you to use the 10 GB of data throughout the entire year.

OnStar 4G LTE Pricing for GM

The first General Motors vehicle to feature the new technology will be the 2015 Chevrolet Malibu, followed by more than 30 other GM vehicles before the end of the year! If you're ready to enjoy the convenience of turning your vehicle into a Wi-Fi hotspot any time the car is on, then grab your seven go-to devices, including laptops, smartphones, tablets, and video game consoles and get ready for the industry's broadest deployment of 4G LTE connectivity.

Throughout the year, 4G LTE connectivity will become available on more than 30 GM vehicles which means that if you want to take advantage of this technology, you will definitely be able to do in a vehicle that suits your needs. Let us help you figure out which vehicle that is! Richard Chevrolet, located at 1405 Highland Ave. Cheshire, CT 06410, has been family owned and operated since 1975!

Environmentally Friendly Repairs at Richard Chevrolet - 05/12/2014

Environmentally Friendly Repairs at Richard Chevrolet

CHESHIRE, Conn. – We're back with the next part of our Collision Center Series, and our Collision Center Manager, Mike Graziano, is explaining why we use a special environmentally friendly paint for all of our repairs. This is a detail that may have never crossed your mind, but trust us, knowing why we use Waterborne Refinishing Products is a detail you definitely want to know if you want our community environment to remain safe.

At Richard Chevrolet’s Collision Center, we use an Environmentally- Friendly Waterborne Paint for several reasons. Although it is not mandatory in the state of Connecticut at this point, it will be in the future as its environmentally friendly properties gain popularity. Plus, it provides superior color and texture matching for repairs since all new vehicles are painted with Waterborne Refinishing Products from the Factory to begin with. So when we use Waterborne Paint on your repair, it will be the exact same color and texture as your vehicle's original paint.

What's the difference between the Waterborne Refinishing Products that we use at Richard Chevrolet and the products used at different collision shops? Many shops use solvent based refinishing products because they are less expensive. While those products do come close to matching color and texture, they are toxic and are not safe for the environment!

We care about our community and this is just one of the steps that we take to make a difference. While the Waterborne Finish is just as durable as the solvent material, we want to make sure you are completely satisfied so we guarantee all of our paintwork for as long as you own the vehicle. So, before you make a decision when it comes to collision repairs, do some research and find out if the shop that you choose is going to use the same materials as the manufacturer, as well as those that aren't going to harm the environment. Your car deserves it, and so does our community!

If you have any questions about anything collision related, please call our Collision Center Manager, Mike Graziano at 571-436-0862Richard Chevrolet, located at 1405 Highland Ave. Cheshire, CT 06410, has been family owned and operated since 1975!
