A NEW TWIST ON THE ICONIC CAMARO; CHEVROLET INTRODUCES SIRI IN 2013 MODELS

The 1960s were good to Chevrolet, especially the Camaro and Chevy is recapturing some of that magic in the all new 2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. The ZL1 is an iconic muscle car that brings performance and style to the road, making it the most advanced Camaro ever to hit the market.

The 2013 Camaro ZL1 offers a supercharged 6.2L V8 engine with a maximum speed of 180 mph for the coupe and 155 mph for the convertible model. According to Chevrolet, the ZL1 coupe equipped with the six speed manual transmission will go from 0-60 mph in 4.0 seconds. The convertible will do it in 4.2 seconds. The coupe will post a standing quarter mile time of 12.1 seconds at 120 mph. The convertible crosses the line in 12.4 seconds at 117 mph. The manual coupe’s top speed is a gearing and drag limited 180 mph. The convertible is governor limited to 155 mph. The coupe will pull 1.0 g of maximum lateral acceleration. The convertible pulls 0.98 g. For comparison’s sake, the most common SS Camaro coupe’s numbers are 0-60 in 4.7 seconds, a standing quarter mile in 12.9 seconds at 113 mph, a top speed of 155 mph, and only 0.90 g of lateral acceleration.

The All New 2014 Chevy SS Outpaces the Rest of the Pack at the Daytona 500

Chevrolet introduced a V-8 rear-wheel drive performance sedan with the launch of the 2014 Chevrolet SS last weekend at the     Daytona International Speedway. The racecar version will make its debut this weekend at the Daytona 500 as the official pace car.

Being described as a four-door Corvette, the Chevy SS will have the same rear-wheel drive now found in the Camaro and Caprice police patrol vehicle. It expected to deliver 415 horsepower and accelerate from zero to 60 in five seconds. This will be the brand’s first rear-wheel drive sedan since 1996.

“The Chevrolet brand was largely built on the strength of rear-drive performance sedans, yet it’s been 17 years since we’ve offered one,” said GM’s North America president Mark Reuss. “The all-new Chevrolet SS fills that void.”

The car will be the first to offer Automatic Parking Assist, which provides hands-free parking help. Other features include a Bose nine-speaker sound system; push button start; StabiliTrak Electronic Stability Control; forward collision alert; lane departure warning and rear-vision camera rear cross traffic alert.

The SS will pace all four NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races during Speedweeks – The Sprint Unlimited, both Budweiser Duels and the Daytona 500. And, it will be one of Chevrolet’s three newest models to pace NASCAR’s races at Daytona International Speedway next weekend:

· 2014 Chevrolet SS in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series

· 2013 Camaro ZL1 in the NASCAR Nationwide Series Drive4COPD 300

· 2014 Silverado 1500 Crew Cab in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series NextEra Energy 250

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Chevrolet is extremely proud to be a part of NASCAR’s season-opener by pacing all of the events at Daytona International Speedway,” said Jeff Chew, Marketing Manager for Chevrolet Racing. “In 2013, Chevrolet will launch 13 all-new or significantly redesigned products in North America.”

The 2014 Chevrolet SS will be available at David Maus Chevrolet in Sanford in the fall.

Last night during the 55th Annual Grammy Awards telecast, General Motors Chevrolet debuted its new advertising campaign along with the new tagline “Find New Roads”. Another big change that viewers may ‘hear’ is a change in the voiceover talent – from Tim Allen to John Cusack.
