One of the fastest-growing trends in the automotive industry at the moment is the emergence of EVs. With so many electric vehicles arriving in automakers’ lineups, it can be hard to stand out. Still, that is precisely what the 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV has managed to do.
The chief feature that managed to impress the editors at Kelley Blue Book was the vehicle’s new extended range. Thanks to some recent upgrades, the 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV can now travel 259 miles on a single charge and manages to achieve an EPA-estimated fuel rating of 118 MPGe*.
“The Bolt is quick, quiet, compliant, and versatile. It makes an excellent city car or runabout, and with some planning for recharges can even be a road-tripper,” commented a group of KBB editors.
The 2020 Bolt EV is also a technological juggernaut in other ways. For example, its 10.2-inch diagonal touch screen is not only advanced, but easy to use, allowing you to access all of the apps that matter most on the go.
You can learn just how technologically advanced this EV is for yourself when you visit Asheville Chevrolet and take the 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV out for a test drive.
*EPA-estimated 259-mile EV range. Your actual range may vary based on several factors, including temperature, terrain, battery age, and how you use and maintain your vehicle.
There are some exciting changes coming to the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado, including new exterior color options and new badging. However, one of the most substantial updates is to the trim levels of the 2021 Colorado.
The 2021 Colorado will no longer offer its base trim. As such, the truck’s first trim level will now be the Work Truck. For the 2020 model year, these two trims have many similarities, though the Work Truck does have some additional features, like carpeted floormats and dual rear seats with under-seat storage.
The main reason behind cutting the base trim is that many drivers preferred the Work Truck trim because of its wider range of standard and available amenities. Accordingly, Chevrolet spokesperson Chris Bonelli said, “We believe Colorado will remain very competitively priced in the mid-size truck segment and will see continued strong sales fueled by its fresh new look. ”
Each 2021 Colorado model has an impressive new design with an upgraded tailgate and grille along with unique badging. The truck rides on 17-inch wheels and gives you more color options with Dune Metallic, Cherry Bomb Tintcoat and Pow Zinga Metallic.
We at Asheville Chevrolet look forward to adding the upcoming 2021 Chevrolet Colorado to our inventory. Check out the current models we have in stock in Asheville, North Carolina, by viewing our online selection.
Purchasing a new car is a huge financial commitment. As
such, it may be necessary to save a large amount of money in order to afford
your new vehicle. Fortunately, there are a few easy money-saving tips to help
get you behind the wheel in newt to no time.
While it may be tempting to purchase a fancy outfit for
yourself or the latest technology, doing so while you’re getting ready to
invest in a new car may not be the best decision. Instead, avoid any unnecessary
purchases so that you can put that money toward your new vehicle.
Set Up a Savings
If you don’t have a savings account set up already, you
should seriously consider setting one up while you’re saving up money to buy a
new car. With this money placed in a separate account, you’ll be much less
likely to use it while paying your other bills or just on a whim.
Trade In Your Old
Since you likely won’t be using your old vehicle when you
obtain your new set of wheels, you might want to consider trading it in at a
dealership like Asheville Chevrolet. Doing so will help reduce the cost of your
new car, truck, or SUV.
If you need any additional financial advice, feel free to speak with our team of financial experts at Asheville Chevrolet.
Driving on a warm, sunny day can be relaxing and fun. However, once the clouds open up and the rain starts to fall, driving can quickly become more difficult. Here are a few tips for how to drive safely in the rain.
Wait Until the Weather Clears. If a heavy
storm is rolling through, it is better to wait until it passes before you start
driving. Don’t put yourself and other drivers in danger if you have time to
Turn on Your Headlights. In North
Carolina, it is the law that you must turn on your headlights whenever you need
to use your windshield wipers during inclement weather. Even if it is just a
light rain, your headlights can help other drivers see your car.
Slow Down. Wet roads are slippery roads. If
you need to do a quick stop, it will take your car longer to stop than when
roads are dry, and you can quickly lose control. This means you should slow
down and leave more following room between you and other vehicles.
Avoid Puddles. While puddles may seem harmless
or even fun to drive through, they can hide large potholes and be far deeper
than they look. Driving through standing water can cause your car to hydroplane
and lose traction.
If you need some new tires before your next road trip through a rainy area — or want an expert opinion on your car’s condition — pay us a visit at Asheville Chevrolet.
The quality of your tires can be the difference between
smooth sailing and potentially dangerous bad traction for your vehicle. The
easiest way to check whether your tires are worn out is — surprisingly — by
using a penny as your measurement tool.
Simply stick a penny into the groove of your tires with
President Lincoln’s head pointing down. Your tires are fine if Lincoln’s head
is covered. If you can see the top of Lincoln’s head, then your tires have worn
past 2/32 of an inch, and you should get a replacement set as soon as possible.
The tread in a tire is how your vehicle keeps traction on
the road. Big grooves allow water and debris to move past the wheel and keep a
firm grip on the road. Bald tires reduce the amount of debris and water that can
move through, so they lose grip in adverse road conditions. The state of North
Carolina even requires that your tires have at least 2/32 inch tread to
increase overall road safety.
There can be other signs of wear. More worn tread in the
center can mean over-inflation of the tires, uneven wear can be a result of
misalignment, and if there is wear on the edges, your tires may be underinflated.
