Chevrolet Introduces First Hardtop Corvette Convertible
The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible is the first hardtop and mid-engine convertible in Corvette history. It maintains the tunnel-dominant structure and use of high-integrity die-cast parts found in the Stingray coupe. It also carries on the coupe's front storage compartment.
The Hardtop The hardtop convertible provides a quieter cabin, increased security, and a cleaner look compared to previous designs for softtops. The Stingray convertible's design was inspired by fighter jets. The tonneau cover features aerodynamically-shaped nacelles, influenced by the housing used for jet engines. The nacelles help to reduce air recirculation into the cabin, providing an exotic profile with the top either up or down. The tonneau also provides a rear power-adjustable window and a vent for mi...

The long-awaited 2020 Chevrolet Corvette has many firsts, one of them being electronically adjustable brakes. Chevy calls this new brake system "eBoost brakes," meaning brake-by-wire. Not sure what that means? The driver can adjust the brake pedal feel depending on the mode they choose to put it in to better suit both the driver and the road conditions.
This technology can be compared to throttle-by-wire, which mostly every new car today has. The driver presses on the brake pedal, which sends a signal to a computer. The "force" is transferred to all the brakes using traditional brake fluid.
By using this technology, Chevy eliminates the conventional vacuum-based power brake system, providing an advantage in efficiency. The eBoost unit combines the master cylinder, vacuum booster, vacuum pu...
Have you heard of the Vehicle Locate feature on the myChevrolet mobile app? If not, keep reading to nip what could be one of your biggest stressors in the bud. The Vehicle Locate feature allows Chevrolet owners to send automated texts to whomever they choose when their connected vehicle arrives at or leaves a specific area or address. The feature can also be used to check the location of their vehicle at any time.
This app update replaced the solely web-based Family Link service. Vehicle Locate allows users to create boundary areas as wide as a 20-mile radius, or they may choose a specific address. They can then choose up to ten people to receive alerts when their vehicle enters or leaves that area, and each person has to opt-in to the alerts.
Beginning with model year 2020, the Bolt EV will offer an EPA-estimated 259 miles of range on a full charge. This range will vary based on temperature, terrain, battery age, and how you use and maintain your vehicle. This is a 21-mile increase over previous model years. The Chevrolet Bolt EV"s long-range and affordability attracts customers continuously, and the 2020 Bolt EV is even more attractive, allowing further travel between charging sessions.
In order to allow for increased range of travel, Chevrolet's battery engineering team improved the energy of the cell electrodes by making adjustments to the cell chemistry. This granted the increase in range without changing the physical battery pack or the way it is integrated into the vehicle structure.

Towing a large trailer can be a hazardous process. It requires paying close attention as well as specialized equipment to make sure you are doing the job right. To tow a trailer safely, you will need side view mirrors. The 2020 Silverado 1500 will offer vertical trailering mirrors specifically designed for safely towing trailers.

As a parent, it can be extremely stressful to watch your teen get behind the wheel. There aren't many things that can put your mind at ease; however, Chevy is doing their very best to help. "Safety is our number one priority at Chevrolet" according to the mother of a teen driver and Chevy employee. The new Buckle to Drive feature is reminding teens the importance of putting your seatbelt on every time you're in the car.
How it Works
Studies show that teens have the lowest rate of seat belt use when compared to other age groups. This technology is changing the foundation for teen safety and it has been a much-needed feature. When the vehicle is in Teen Driver mode you are required to put your seatbelt on before you are able to move the car out of park. If you attempt to...
Two iconic Detroit brands, Chevrolet and Carhartt, have announced a strategic partnership in which Carhartt, America's leading workwear brand, will become the Official Workwear of Chevy Trucks, and Chevy Trucks will be the Official Partner of Carhartt.

Carhartt was founded in 1889 by Hamilton Carhartt, who recognized the need for more durable garments for railroad engineers. The Carhartt bib overall quickly became the standard for quality workwear. The workwear brand is committed to developing the best products and creating authentic partnerships that help consumers on and off the jobsite. Chevy Truck, on the other hand, delivered the first trucks to customers in 1918...
A tire with no air sounds scary, right? However, airless tire technology is actually not a new concept. Michelin first introduced the idea called the Tweel over 10 years ago. It consists of a molded-thread rubber band similar to that of a conventional tire mounted on a steel shear beam that acts as a contact patch. Michelin recently unveiled a prototype of the "Uptis" (Unique Puncture-Proof Tire System). It is similar to the Tweel, but its mix of composite rubber and resin embedded fiberglass lets it operate at highway speeds.
The airless tire, although not aesthetically pleasing, are just as comfortable as conventional tires. Blowouts are now a thing of the past, punctures are no longer a worry either, and potholes will no longer destroy your sidewall.
