2024 Chevy Blazer EV Debuts

2024 Chevy Blazer EV | Collierville, TN

Chevy has revealed the upcoming 2024 Chevy Blazer EV, the first electric version of the iconic Blazer SUV. Set to go on sale in the summer of 2023, the new Blazer EV will deliver an incredible combination of electric range and power.

The Blazer EV will have an estimated driving range of 320 miles on a single charge with the RS trim, or as low as 247 miles on the base 1LT trim. The Blazer EV will offer a sport-driven SS trim, which can drive up to 290 miles on a full charge.

The Blazer EV SS is the first electric sport SUV from Chevy, and it’s designed to put out serious power. The SS can produce up to 557 horsepower and 648 lb-ft of torque, letting you go from 0 to 60 mph in under 4 seconds.

The other trim levels of the Blazer EV put out plenty of power too, and they’re loaded with smart tech and features. A 17.7-inch infotainment screen gives you a clear view of your navigation and streaming apps, and the 11-inch driver information center gives you a clear view of important vehicle info.

The Blazer EV delivers serious convenience with hands-free start, which senses the presence of the key fob and starts the car as soon as you tap the brake. A presence-based liftgate is also available, as well as available Super Cruise, Chevy’s hands-free driving tech.

Chevy Safety Assist Features

Chevy Safety Features | Collierville, TN

Chevy offers all the latest safety technology you’re looking for in a new vehicle, whether you prefer a compact hatchback or a big pickup truck. Here are some features you can get on your new Chevy vehicle.

Adaptive Cruise Control

If you have a long commute on the highway, Adaptive Cruise Control is practically a necessity. This piece of technology uses a variety of sensors and highway maps to steer the wheel for you and control the speed, letting you sit back and relax even in stop-and-go traffic.

HD Surround Vision and Rear Camera Mirror

Chevy has some of the best camera technology in the auto industry. HD Surround Vision uses images from cameras around your car to create a composite overhead view, making it easier to park. And the Rear Camera Mirror provides a sharper, broader view of the area behind you than a standard rearview mirror.

Lane Change Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert

These two pieces of technology both help you make safer decisions when your visibility is compromised. Rear Cross Traffic Alert lets you know when it’s unsafe to back out of a parking spot. And Lane Change Alert, which is paired with Side Blind Zone Alert, monitors your blind spot so you know when it’s safe to change lanes.

Rear Park Assist

Rear Park Assist is perfect for anyone who spends time in the city. Fitting into tight parking spaces is a breeze with Rear Park Assist, which alerts you to objects behind you when in Reverse, so you can avoid collisions while trying to park.

Intellibeam Auto High Beam Assist

Intellibeam makes night driving safer and easier than ever. When it senses another vehicle around you, it will automatically turn your high beams off, then turn them on again when the road is clear.

Differences Between the GMC Acadia and Chevrolet Traverse

2022 Chevrolet Traverse | Collierville, TN

At first glance, the 2022 GMC Acadia and Chevrolet Traverse might appear to be twins. However, these two models have some key differences to consider if you need some help deciding which one to bring home. That’s especially true when it comes to space and strength. 

Though the 2022 GMC Acadia can seat up to seven people, it’s not as roomy as the 2022 Chevy Traverse. It offers 41.7 cubic feet of space behind the second row and 79 cubic feet when you collapse all of the rear seats. The larger Traverse can accommodate up to eight riders. There’s 57.8 cubic feet behind the second row. When you need more space for pets or possessions than people, collapse both back rows to access 98.2 cubic feet.

Both models are both reasonably efficient in terms of mileage — but the Traverse is the better choice when it comes to towing. But the Acadia can tow only 4,000 pounds max, while the Traverse can tow 5,000 pounds.

Lastly, the Acadia and Traverse contrast when it comes to trim options. The Acadia has more specialized trim levels, which include the luxury-oriented Denali and the off-road-focused AT4. But the Traverse has a higher quantity of trims — 6 to be exact. So, if you want a wide array of trims to choose from, go with the Chevy model.

Test-drive the 2022 Acadia and Traverse for yourself when you and your family stop by Sunrise Chevrolet Buick GMC at Collierville. Our friendly sales reps will be happy to help you pick just the right SUV to fit your family’s budget, preferences, and needs.

2020 Chevy Equinox Named To Safest Cars For Teen Drivers List

Chevy Equinox For Teens - Memphis, TN

Thanks to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)’s 2020 Safe Vehicles for Teens list, it’s never been easier to pick a high-quality vehicle for your young driver. The ranking includes used cars that are both affordable and well equipped for safety. This year, the Chevrolet Equinox — from 2016 to the current model year — was selected as one of the best vehicles for teen drivers.

 

In order to be considered for the 2020 Safe Vehicles for Teens list, a vehicle must meet several qualifications. For instance, each model needed to pass the IIHS driver-side small overlap front test with an Acceptable or Good rating. Not only did the Chevy Equinox manage this, but the crossover also got good ratings on other crash tests, like the moderate overlap front, roof strength, side, and head restraint tests. 

 

The Equinox also needed to earn at least four stars for the front and side crash tests from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, plus a minimum of three out of five stars from Consumer Reports for its emergency handling capability.

 

The teen-friendly Chevy Equinox met all of these qualifications and received an IIHS Top Safety Pick award for its crash-readiness and its advanced safety systems. The most relevant is the innovative Teen Driver mode, which lets you limit certain settings and features, as well as monitor their driving progress with an in-vehicle report card.

 

If you’re looking for a safe, reliable vehicle for your teen driver, take a look at our online inventory of Chevrolet Equinoxes at Sunrise Chevrolet Buick GMC.

Chevy Bolt Earns A Spot On KBB’s List of Longest-Ranged EVs

2020 Chevy Bolt EV - Memphis, TN

If you’ve been looking for a way to save money at the gas pump while reducing your carbon footprint, an electric vehicle is a great option. For a model that won’t force you to sacrifice range for efficiency, consider the Chevrolet Bolt EV, which was just named to Kelley Blue Book’s list of the 10 Longest-Ranged Electric Cars of 2020.

The 2020 Bolt has a best-in-class range of 259 miles. That’s about 10 percent more than previous Bolt generations. Even so, it still provides an impressive 200 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque.

“It makes an excellent city car or runabout, and with some planning for recharges can even be a road-tripper,” said the KBB editors.

Chevy has you covered on your next road trip as well. With over 40,000 charging stations across the country, it’s not hard to find a convenient spot to power up. The myChevrolet Mobile App with Energy Assist shows you where those stations are and can calculate how much juice you have left based on road and weather conditions. Additionally, available DC Fast Charging can provide up to 100 miles of charge in just 30 minutes.

With such an impressive range, it won’t be long before EVs — like the Chevrolet Bolt EVs that we sell here at Sunrise Chevrolet Buick GMC at Collierville — are as common on the road as gas-powered vehicles.
