The Top 2 Ways That the 2011 Chevrolet Aveo5 Outshines Similar Cars

2011 Chevrolet Aveo5

It is my opinion that the 2011 Chevrolet Aveo5 outshines similar cars. Not only does it get exceptional gas mileage while remaining amazingly spacious, the Aveo5 adds technological touches that none of its competition can match. With the MyChevrolet smart phone application, I can say with confidence that no other sub-compact car’s mobile integration is as good as this one. In addition, OnStar provides safety when it really matters.

1.) No other sub-compact cars have the MyChevrolet smart phone application.  If you are a mobile integration junkie like me, this might be all you need to hear. Using the MyChevrolet App, you can lock your car, turn it on, or unlock it. One of my favorite uses of this application is initializing a remote start from anywhere. Is it a hot day? Get that air conditioning going a couple minutes before you plan to walk out the door. These are not the types of features that we are used to seeing when we look at a sub-compact car, and this is one reason that I think the 2011 Chevrolet Aveo5 is more than a step above the rest. I want the fuel efficiency and price tag of a small car, but I don’t want to miss out on the features like the MyChevrolet smart phone app either. With the Aveo5, we don’t have to.

2.) Going with a small car doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your safety. With OnStar, if you get in an accident while driving your Aveo5, a representative will be there to assist you at a touch of a button.

The Top 2 Reasons Why the 2011 Chevrolet Malibu Deserves Your Respect

2011 Chevrolet Malibu

I don’t think that the 2011 Chevrolet Malibu gets the respect it deserves when people are thinking about the top luxury vehicles on the market. I believe that in general, people think of Chevrolet vehicles as middle of the road options that are not particularly exceptional. I’m not sure if this reputation was deserved by Chevrolet in the past, but I certainly don’t believe it is now. The 2011 Chevrolet Malibu is just one of the many Chevy vehicles that can exceed your expectations with their efficiency, luxury, and overall quality.

1.) I can’t say enough about the 2011 Chevrolet Malibu’s interior. This cabin makes me never want to leave and feel like I’m a pretty cool guy at the same time. Do you know how a nice suit, or outfit, can make you feel very relaxed and inexplicably happy? I think that the interior of the 2011 Chevrolet Malibu can provide the same feeling. I like to own nice things because it makes me feel good. With excellent artistic design, clean lines, and leather seats the interior of the 2011 Chevrolet Malibu is a very nice thing indeed.

2.) The technology that is incorporated into the 2011 Chevrolet Malibu, in and of itself, deserves your respect. With the MyChevrolet mobile phone application, remote start, and heated seats the 2011 Chevrolet Malibu combines comfort and mobile integration into a tantalizing package. What’s better than having a comfortable car waiting for you outside?

What technological feature sets the Volt apart from the rest?

Chevrolet has put a lot at stake with the all new Chevrolet Volt. While many drivers across the country have been feeling the pinch over higher gas prices at the pump, the Volt might be a vehicle of choice for some people due to its ability to run off of electricity. The Volt has many people talking and raving about its fuel mileage. There is something else that gives the Volt some luster, and that is its technological features.

The Volt offers up a whole new realm of managing performance and power under the hood so you can get the performance you want or need with a simple push of a button. The Volt has a feature that allows you to pick between three driving modes you need at the moment. The Volt has a normal mode that mostly depends on the electricity of the vehicle to power and run the Volt. The Normal setting is also the most efficient setting of the three. The next setting is the sport setting, which will give you a faster response behind the wheel and faster acceleration. With the faster acceleration though, you will loose some fuel efficiency. The last driver setting in the Volt is the Mountain mode. The mountain mode is perfect for driving on steep terrain and constant inclines. The mountain mode allows the Volt to make sure the battery has a bigger energy reserve for steep driving.

Chevy boosts the power in their upcoming 2012 Impala

2012 Chevy ImpalaChevrolet is looking to upgrade the engine and horsepower under the hood of their Impala. The engine they are going to add to the 2012 Impala is the current engine in the Chevy Camaro. The new engine is a 3.6L V6 VVT that can put out more power than ever before. The 3.6L engine is also currently used in the Buick Lacrosse and puts out 280 horsepower, but in the upcoming 2012 Impala, the 3.6L engine will put out 302 horsepower and 252 lbs.-ft. of torque.

The 3.6L engine is an upgrade over the 3.5L engine and will offer more power over the 3.9L engine that is currently under the hood of the Impala. This size reduction (or size gain depending on which model) is vital and will make the Impala a great vehicle option for those police forces who want to opt out of getting the new Caprice model.

As far as major changes goes for the Impala, the engine is the biggest, seeing as how the Impala has already undergone a major transformation over the years since 2006. With these changes though, many fans and car enthusiasts are hoping that the Impala will re-ignite its feud with the Dodge Charger in the years to come.
