Returning 2021 Trailblazer Boasts Style and Safety

2021-Chevy-Trailblazer-Huntsville-TX

Among Chevrolet’s many strengths is its foothold in one of the automotive industry’s fastest-growing segments: small SUVs and crossovers. Adding to that lineup is the all-new 2021 Chevy Trailblazer, expected to arrive at Wiesner of Huntsville in early 2020.

Since it was last part of the Chevy lineup in 2009, the Trailblazer underwent some downsizing in order to complement the changing times. The returning 2021 Trailblazer is a smaller and more stylish SUV, with some touches that make it a top-notch choice in the crossover segment.

As Steve Majoros, director of Chevrolet passenger car and crossover marketing, put it, “The Trailblazer’s great design enables more personalization.” Take, for example, the available RS trim. It flaunts an eye-catching two-tone roof that lets you choose your preferred color combination.

Also new to the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer is a host of standard active safety features, including Front Pedestrian Braking, Automatic Emergency Braking and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning. These tools ensure that drivers of the 2021 Trailblazer can travel confidently, safely, and with the peace of mind. The all-new Trailblazer also offers Adaptive Cruise Control, Rear Park Assist, and a High Definition Rear Vision Camera as options.

When the 2021 Chevy Trailblazer is available, you’ll find it here at Wiesner of Huntsville.

Chevrolet Rated as Top Automotive Brand for Millennials

Chevrolet Rated As Top Automotive Brand | Huntsville, TX

Millennials are quickly becoming the target audience in various industries, including the automotive market. Thanks to its dedication to designing aerodynamic, efficient, and tech-savvy vehicles, Chevrolet was recognized as the top automotive brand for millennials by Autolist.

Most analysts agree that the millennial generation was born between 1981 and 1996. That puts most millennials between the ages of 23 and 38. To get accurate results, Autolist examined the preferences of 1,750 shoppers younger than 36 years old.

Chevrolet took the first place spot, performing better than competitors such as Ford, Toyota, Honda, and BMW. Brands like Fiat and Volvo landed at the bottom of the list of automotive brands millennials preferred.

Not only is Chevrolet the top automotive brand among millennials, but the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 landed as the most popular full-size truck for millennials, too. The brand was also most likely to be considered when millennials look for a new vehicle. Chevrolet was also the number one response for which brand millennial drivers own right now.

Chase Disher, Autolist’s chief analyst, cited Chevrolet’s “Real People, Not Actors” ad campaign and early adoption of top technologies as reasons for the brand’s success with millennials.  Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a built-in Wi-Fi® hotspot are just a few systems that appeal to millennial tastes.

Chevrolet Nine-Speed Transmission to Roll Out in 2017

New Chevrolet Transmission Coming in 2017 - Huntsville, TXFord and General Motors first announced that they would team up to develop two new transmission back in 2013. Now, as 2017 rolls around, we’re seeing the true fruits of their labor. General Motors unveiled plans to launch 10 new models with a new nine-speed transmission by the end of 2017.

Chevrolet will see four models debut with the new transmission throughout the year. The new nine-speed transmission offers a three percent increase in fuel economy over the older six-speed automatic transmission. Automakers are adding more gears to their transmissions across the board in order to comply with federal emissions regulations.

The Chevrolet nine-speed transmission first debuted in the 2017 Malibu Premier with a turbocharged engine. The 2017 Cruze diesel, with its 1.6-liter diesel engine, will come with the new transmission as well. The 2018 Equinox, equipped with a turbocharged engine as well, will round out the first three. Chevrolet has yet to reveal the fourth model.

The other transmission, a 10-speed automatic, made its official debut in the Ford F-150 and Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 muscle car. That transmission is designed for performance in rear-wheel drive vehicles while the nine-speed transmission brings increased fuel economy in front-wheel drive models.

We here at Wiesner of Huntsville expect only the best from General Motors!

Chevy Bolt Available To Lyft Drivers

As if the Chevrolet Bolt will need any help populating the streets of this great nation, Chevy and Lyft have partnered together to make sure that the Bolt gets all of the use it deserves.

Chevy and Lyft - Bolt concept

Admittedly, Chevy has reason to support Lyft. After all, the automaker recently made a $500 million investment in the ride-sharing service. Chevy announced its contribution only a day before they revealed the all-new Chevrolet Bolt.

According to Forbes, Lyft is establishing rental centers in various urban areas around the country. Chevy plans to make the Bolt available for Lyft drivers as short-rentals at these nationwide rental centers. It’s a great robust model for transportation. Drivers rent the cars, earn money giving folks rides and then return the cars.

Needless to say, the Chevrolet Bolt should prove very popular with Lyft drivers. Why is that? Drivers will be able to travel over 200 miles on a single charge.

Chevy and Lyft have also working together to eventually offer driverless cars to customers.
