The Chevrolet Cobalt Sedan XFE: Fuel Efficiency and Cargo Room

Have you ever taken long road trips and had to stop for gas over and over again? With most cars, this would be the usual story, but not with the Cobalt XFE. One of the best features about the Cobalt XFE is its superb fuel mileage. The Cobalt XFE 2.2L ECOTECH DOHC engine gets an estimated 37mpg. It gets better fuel mileage than any other compact sedan. That’s better fuel mileage than Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, and Ford Focus. With its larger fuel tank, the Cobalt XFE’s estimated range of travel is 480 miles on one tank of gas. To put it in perspective, the Cobalt XFE can travel from Cincinnati, Ohio to Atlanta, Georgia on one tank of fuel! With this kind of mileage from the Cobalt XFE, frequent stops for gas are a thing of the past.

The Cobalt XFE also brings with it the additional cargo and passenger room afforded by a sedan. With its four-door body style, the Cobalt XFE is easy for picking up, dropping off, and carpooling your friends and family. The additional seating room can also transform into cargo room with its 40/60 collapsible rear seat. The spacious trunk combined with the folding rear seat offers plenty of room for hauling your belongings around or packing for vacation. With this amount of cargo room and fuel mileage, the Cobalt XFE easily becomes one of the best compact sedans for family vacations or fun road trips.

Chevrolet has brought the future in with a big bang: The Volt

Chevrolet has brought the future in with a big bang; no pun intended. On, Thursday, December 16, 2010, Chevrolet will announce the winner of the Volt auction. The auction closed at $225,000.00! (This is a phenomenal amount of money that Chevrolet has received as the Volt typically costs around $33,000 for the base model.)The announcement will be made at the Detroit International Academy in Detroit, Michigan. The Detroit International Academy is an all-girl’s school where the robotics team placed fourth in the 2010 FIRST Robotics World Championship. The proceeds from the auction will benefit robotics and other science programs through the Detroit Public Schools Foundation. Chevrolet is bringing us the future of electric cars with the Volt.

The Chevrolet Volt is the 2011 Motor Trend Car of the Year and has many other accolades to boast of as well. Powered by electricity (without being tethered to electrical outlets), the Volt drives gas and emissions free for most commutes. However, if you need to go further than the electric charge will take you, the Volt is equipped with an on-board gas powered generator and the vehicle can go up to 375 miles when combining the electric and gas power together. The EPA estimate is 93 MPGe (electric) in the electric range. (Actual range may vary with conditions.) The EPA estimate is 35 MPG city and 40 MPG highway when operating on the gasoline. Either way, these are all simply amazing numbers! This brings the cost of the average commute down to about $1.50 per day! It is difficult to purchase one gallon of gasoline at that cost in this economy.

Many people wonder about how long it takes the car to recharge. The answer is not long at all! You can fully charge the Volt in 8 to 10 hours (depending on the climate) on a standard 120 volt line. It can be done in as little as 4 hours when you use a dedicated 240 volt line.

So, give Les Stanford Chevrolet Cadillac a call today at (800) 836-0972 or stop by 21730 Michigan Ave Dearborn, MI 48124 to check out the new Chevrolet Volt for yourself today! Come see what the future looks like!

The sleek and sexy CTS-V beats the Mercedes Benz E63

The sleek and sexy 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan is a beautiful vehicle from tip to tire. With a strong sharp design, chrome accents and the distinguished Cadillac logo adorned on both bumper and fender it is impossible not to give this vehicle the respect it deserves. If you find that you are having trouble deciding if the CTS-V is the best vehicle for you then compare it to any of its competitors. Doing that will further prove the truth that Cadillac CTS-V Sedan is the superior automobile. For example one of its top competitors is the Mercedes Benz E63 a very stylish automobile. But this vehicle lays solid proof that looks are not everything. The Benz is almost a whole twenty thousand dollars more expensive than the CTS-V and with fewer features it does not seem to make sense. For example on the outside the CTS-V offers standard a remote truck release and an active suspension system that aids in providing more comfort and convenience. Whereas the BMW does not offer either of those features and all the features that the E63 offers the CTS-V already has standard. But that is not all, not even close take a look inside both the vehicles and you will find that the same is true. Overall if you want the better build and you want it at a better price then choosing the 2011 Cadillac CTS-V is the right choice for you!

Not only this but the CTS offers more exterior things that BMW does not like daytime running lights, Chrome wheels, all-season tires, compact spare tire and rear spoiler. But that is only on the outside on the inside Cadillac CTS has many more standard features like remote vehicle start so you can warm up your car on those cold days before your even in it! Also Panoramic roof, heated driver and passenger seat, rear parking assist, navigation system, and anti-theft system.
