The Top 3 Reasons Why Owning the 2011 Chevrolet Volt is Better Than Owning an Internal Combustion Vehicle

2011 Chevrolet Volt

In my opinion it is better to own a 2011 Chevrolet Volt than any sort of internal combustion vehicle. The reasons are many, but I think some of them really stand out. You may not realize that buying one results in a tax credit and that it’s really cheap to drive.

1.) It really amazes me that the estimated cost of the electricity needed to power the Volt for a day’s commute is only $1.50. Today, that’s less than half the cost of a gallon of gas. I don’t think anyone can rely on the gas prices these days.

2.) Driving the 2011 Chevrolet Volt is as good for the environment as operating a vehicle can be. How good it is for the environment depends on how the electricity powering it was generated. It really intrigues me that the Volt can become more and more efficient as renewable and clean energies are used more often in the future.

3.) The Volt is even more quiet than many highly insulated luxury cars. It excites me that other non-electric vehicles simply can’t compete with the luxury of quiet that the Volt offers. It’s important to note that on the occasion when the Volt does burn gasoline, there is some noise from that.

Are You in the Mood for A Good Deal? Check out the Chevy Malibu!

2011 Chevrolet Malibu

Don’t things just seem to be getting more and more crazy around the world? If it’s not the war on terrorism, it’s the economy crashing. We are also dealing with high gas prices. Everywhere we look, all we seem to get is bad news. I have some good news for you! The Chevy Malibu offers a good deal for your money.

If you’re out there and you’re looking for a vehicle to purchase, you may be having some difficulty with your decision. With gas prices through the roof, one of the most important qualities we desire is efficiency. The Chevy Malibu is a mid-size sedan that offers 33 miles per gallon on the highway. That’s practically unheard of. There are smaller cars that don’t get mileage that good. What else would the Malibu have to offer to make it a good deal?

Affordability is always an issue. The Malibu starts at only $21,975. For a mid-size sedan that offers great efficiency and affordability, the Malibu is a great value. To complete the Malibu’s “good deal qualities,” you have to take a look at the safety. The Malibu has the best features from OnStar, including Automatic Crash Response, AND was named a “2010 Top Safety Pick” by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Not to mention, the Malibu is one of the most attractive cars on the market! Now if that’s not a good deal, I don’t know what is!

The 2011 Chevrolet Corvette: 3-2-1 Launch

The launch control system is designed for those people who love to compete in club sanctioned closed-course track events. The launch control system works as followed; when the Corvette is at a dead stop, all the driver has to do is put the gas peddle to the floor and then the Corvette sets the engine speed to a specific predetermined launch RPM. Then all the driver has to do is remove their foot off the clutch quickly and get ready for takeoff while the car handles the acceleration. The Corvette’s computer then modulates the torque of the engine 100 times each second to give the driver maximum acceleration performance. On the test track, the Corvette reached speeds up to 190 MPH, which is feat that can be added to the Corvette’s already impressive resume.

A New Corvette Stingray?

This year at the Kansas City Bartle Hall Car Show, Chevy showed off its new design for possible release on the Corvette. I have always been a fan of the Stingray style from the 60’s, and Chevy seems to want to resurrect a legend! With a seemingly more “Batmobile” physique, Chevy displays the Stingray Concept’s short windows and elongated front, giving it a definite look and feel, famous for concept cars. Prepare to be introduced to the “Wow factor” in this video! Welcome to the future!

Now, I’ve seen some concept cars, but nothing has ever caught my eye like the Stingray Concept! This vehicle shows off a conceptual hybrid powertrain and futuristic function and design. I love the fact that there are no door handles at all! Everything is automatic and power functioning. Chevy also gives it a more Ferrari-like feel with the Butterfly Doors and reverse style hood. My heart is still pounding at the thought of this resurrected legend!

My biggest hope is that the Stingray doesn’t just stay in the concept stage, but actually makes it onto the road. With no valid information online regarding any hopes for an actual production line of Stingrays, my dream to own one of the most awesome vehicles in the world stays just that; a dream. For any inside information regarding a possible release, feel free to stop by Les Stanford Chevrolet Cadillac at 21730 Michigan Ave Dearborn, MI 48124 to speak to a Chevrolet representative for the most updated information!
