The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette

To all the Sports car enthusiasts-we have some exciting news for you! Stats on the new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette were accidentally released early and we were able to find out some great information!

Here’s what we know about the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette….

It will have 450 horsepower which is estimated to provide a speed acceleration of 0-60 in 4 seconds. It will also have a top speed in excess of 185 mph.

Chevrolet’s designers will address one of the biggest criticisms of previous Corvettes, the somewhat lackluster cabin by redesigning the interior feel and comfort.

The interior will feature premium leather surfaces and hand stitched seams. In describing the interior, Chevrolet boasts about the new materials used and explains that every surface is crafted to suit the driver.

What about the gauges? Glad you asked.

A traditional speedometer will sit next to a digital tachometer. Next to THAT will be an information screen providing stats such as engine and oil temps. Also provided will be oil and tire pressure and battery charge, everything a true sports car enthusiast would want to know while on the road.

Here’s what we don’t know about the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette…

What it looks like.

BUT…

The GM Service Website revealed the Corvettes’ front end and that fits well with the car’s expected look. Plus, using Corvette convertible prototypes as the basis, illustrations go a long way in showing the dramatic new shape of the fully redesigned sports car.

Have a look.

The All New 2014 Silverado Unveiled

Chevrolet  recently unveiled the all-new 2014 Silverado and truck fans have a reason to be excited.

As Chevrolet says, “From hood to hitch, this is the most refined, best engineered Silverado ever.”

That’s a pretty powerful statement and here are a few of those changes…

Engine

The 2014 Silverado will offer a new trio of EcoTec3 engines designed to provide more horsepower, more torque and better mpg than previous Silverado engines.  The new engine family includes a V-6 and two V-8s. They also have a combination of advanced technologies not found in other competitor’s trucks.

Interior

Controls are logically placed and more important, easy to operate with work gloves on. Good to know.  Included are a six instrument cluster with more important controls placed closer to the driver. The 2014 Silverado also has multiple storage options and the new Chevrolet MyLink. That last feature stores up to 60 favorites including radio stations, contacts, destinations, music and more. It also has enough ports and power outlets to support multiple devices.

Outside

A new front end is engineered to improve cooling. The Silverado has a revised front and rear suspension, which along with wider wheels, provide a more comfortable ride. Silverado’s CornerStep bumper makes it easier to access the box.  For the first time, Silverado 1500 crew cabs will be available with a longer 6’6” box, in addition to the previous 5’8” box.  This enables customers to carry more cargo while still being able to park in many garages.

Safety

The Silverado continues to offer comprehensive standard safety technologies.  Included are stability controls, Trailer Sway Control, head curtain side airbags with rollover protection.  It even has OnStar.  New for 2014, Silverado will offer Lane Departure Warning that alerts the driver if the vehicle starts to drift into another lane.  Also available is Forward Collision Alert which warns the driver if he or she is getting too close to the vehicle ahead.

One last thing, Silverado has the lowest total cost ownership of any full size pickup in the U.S. market according to automotive data compilation.  That means less money spent on routine maintenance, repairs and other operating costs.  That’s more money YOU have in YOUR pocket.

The 2014 Silverado will make it’s debut at the Detroit Auto Show January 14-27 2013.

58 Chevrolet Corvette – Want to own one?

Do you want to know what a cool car is? A really cool car?

It’s the 1958 Chevrolet Corvette.

From the design to the look and feel of it, this car radiates ‘cool’.

Here is a little background history of the Chevrolet Corvette…

The year was 1958 and General Motors was celebrating its 50th Anniversary with the debut of this two seater sports car. Designed by Harley Earl, known as the father of car design, this car not only looked good but was one of the fastest cars of its day. The engine was capable of 290 horses and the speedometer went up to 160 mph. There wasn’t a car that year that had a more powerful engine. It was manufactured in St. Louis and was offered in six colors.

And the heater was still optional.

I told you THAT story to tell you THIS one…

You can own this car. Yes that’s right!

A 1958 vintage Chevy Corvette will be auctioned off at the upcoming 2013 Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale,

And it’s all for a great cause-Habitat for Humanity. Habitat (as it’s known) is an international, non-governmental, non-profit organization. It’s devoted to building “simple, decent, and affordable” housing for people who can’t afford that on their own.

The car’s current owner, GM President and CEO, Dan Akerson, has said, “I love the car” and adds, “the need for Habitat for Humanity is so great that I thought, Wow, maybe I could really make a difference in a whole different way.”

Now a bit of HIS story…

He made a personal donation of $1 million in February 2012 to launch a three-year Habitat for Humanity program to benefit families in a Detroit neighborhood. The proceeds from this Corvette auction will go to that project as well. And the car he’s offering? Only 510 of them from 1958 were made wearing the same Turquoise finish. And he has kept the vehicle in showroom condition.

If you are interested in the purchase of this ‘58 Chevrolet Corvette and a little piece of history – check out the event that is scheduled to kick off Friday, January 18, 2013.

Chevrolet Debuts A New Racecar That Will Be Sold In Showrooms Nationwide

Starting with the founding father of Chevrolet, Louis Chevrolet, the company has enjoyed a long and fun history in automobile racing history. Chevrolet made its NASCAR debut in 1949 by finishing fifth at Occoneechee Speedway in North Carolina. Six years later, Chevy would receive its first win and through the years Chevrolet has posted approximately 600 race wins in total.

Chevrolet will be making a new debut in 2013 with the introduction of the Chevrolet SS into the Shootout at Daytona International Speedway on February 16th, 2013. This is NASCAR’s first event to signify the start of the 2013 Sprint Cup schedule and Chevrolet is proud to introduce a vehicle that will resonate well with the fans.

The new Chevrolet SS passenger car, which will be seen on the road in February close to the Daytona 500 – and will be available in showrooms in August 2013. Both the race car and the production car will get V-8 power and a front-engine, rear-drive layout

Four- time Cup Series Champion, Jeff Gordon, was behind the wheel when Mark Reuss, President of General Motors North America revealed the new racecar.

Reuss commented on the cooperative effort between NASCAR and Chevrolet to put cars on the track that are closer to the ones consumers buy.

“We’ve been focusing on a number of important initiatives to build a stronger connection with our fans,” Reuss said. He wants to “help our fans make the link between what they see on the track, on the streets and in Chevy showrooms.”

The Sprint Cup schedule, marking NASCAR’s 65th season, will have a familiar feel to it. It opens with the first official race – the Daytona 500 on February 24th, before roaring on to its season finale on November 17th in Homestead near Miami.

Let the races begin – February 2013.

For more information on the 2013 Chevrolet SS please visit David Maus Chevrolet in Sanford, Florida and take a test drive.

Homeless children’s ‘Pictures of Hope’ made into greeting cards

The Orlando Sentinel recently ran an article detailing the success of the Pictures of Hope program in Orlando, which we at David Maus Chevrolet are proud to be a part of…

In September, Solomon came to Orlando, one of a dozen cities chosen for her “Pictures of Hope” program this year. At the Coalition for the Homeless, she led a tutorial in photography for 15 young students, ages 6 to 12. Then she sent them out with disposable cameras to capture the images that spoke to their heart’s desire.

The images would be turned into greeting cards that are now being sold online to raise funds for the local charity.

The budding photojournalists took pictures of a bountiful produce aisle in a grocery store, an empty tire swing, a swan by a lake, a house. They were simple, ordinary scenes. And somehow that made them all the more poignant.

“Their hopes and dreams captured in quiet moments tell a story that few adults can imagine,” Solomon says. “When you show children that you care about what they wish for in life, perhaps a child who never felt he or she had self worth, now will.”

In late November, David Maus Chevrolet in Sanford — which helped to fund the project — hosted an unveiling of the photos and a Meet The Young Artist reception. The kids dressed in their finest clothes and, for what was likely the first time in their young lives, they were treated like the most important people in the room.

They were thrilled.
