Chevrolet Introduces Silverado ZR2 Bison

2023 Chevrolet Silverado ZR2 Bison | Collierville, TN

Chevy has introduced the Silverado ZR2 Bison special edition, the most capable off-road Silverado ever made. The Bison special edition, which will debut in early 2023, will be available on the Silverado ZR2 trim, adding even more off-road features and capability to this trail-rated half-ton pickup.

Previously only available on the Colorado ZR2, the Bison name brings with it a special off-road suspension, front and rear locking differentials, and much more. The Bison special edition improves the approach angle by nearly a full degree, providing better clearance on steep inclines.

Chevy has fitted the ZR2 Bison with steel bumpers and protection across the whole underbody, which prevents damage to the underside when crossing sharp, rocky terrain. The underbody protection includes five skid plates, steel protection for the rocker panel, and a three-piece front bumper.

The Bison also delivers exclusive 18-inch wheels paired with 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory Maximum Traction tires. This is in addition to the base features of the Silverado ZR2, like the Multimatic dampers and springs, drive modes including Terrain Mode for rock crawling, and a standard 6.2-liter V8 engine.

The ZR2 Bison will also feature special badging and unique design elements, like the black matte finish on the tailgate and body-color grille bar.

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.

Chevy Begins Production on the 2021 Tahoe

2021 Tahoe - Memphis, TN

2020 has been filled with a lot of uncertainty and confusion, but it appears that Chevrolet is committed to making this year a little better. Despite production delays caused by a global manufacturing halt, Chevy has officially started up the production line for the 2021 Tahoe and its GMC brand cousin, the Yukon.

According to industry insiders, General Motors is enacting a staged manufacturing plan to build the next generation of the beloved full-size SUV. Chevrolet plans to build basic versions of the 2021 Tahoe first, then eventually move on to the longer wheelbase vehicles later in the pipeline. Customers looking for a Tahoe with more advanced features than the standard configuration might have a slightly longer wait than expected, but rest assured, your Tahoe is on its way.

The next generation of the Chevy Tahoe is certainly worth the wait given the impressive new features available on the 2021 model. The brand new Z71 edition of the Tahoe was built with adventurers in mind, and includes a number of off-road ready features like 20-inch all-terrain tires, an Air Ride Adaptive Suspension system, and fun-yet-functional red tow hooks to help out fellow thrill-seekers that are in a bind on the trail.

The Last Chevrolet Impala Left the Assembly Line

Chevy Impala - Memphis, TN

At approximately 8:30 AM on February 28th, 2020, the very last Chevrolet Impala was assembled at the Detroit-Hamtramck General Motors plant. Though Chevy announced the discontinuation of the legendary nameplate over a year ago, the loss of the iconic Impala is no less bittersweet.

After 60 years on the road, countless appearances in popular culture, and an impressive run as one of the most common police vehicles, the Chevrolet Impala is still widely beloved and critically acclaimed. In late 2019, it was revealed by Insurify.com that the Impala topped the list of most popular vehicles in seven states. Additionally, it was named the Lowest Cost to Own Full-Size Car by Kelley Blue Book as well as the Best Large Car for the Money by U.S. News just this year.

Though the Impala’s retirement might leave a sedan-shaped hole in your heart, rest easy knowing that Chevrolet has plenty of exciting projects in the works. General Motors is making a massive $2.2 billion renovation to the former Impala production facility to gear up to produce EVs. One of the upcoming all-electric vehicles expected to be built in the Detroit-Hamtramck plant is the newly-resurrected GMC Hummer.

As heartbroken as you may be, diehard Impala fans should remain hopeful; the Impala was axed from the Chevy lineup twice before and came back stronger than ever. In the meanwhile, visit Sunrise Chevrolet Buick GMC at Collierville if you want to own one of the last Impalas – for now.

Chevrolet debuts a brand new look for the 2021 Colorado

2021 Colorado | Memphis, TN

Chevrolet recently pulled back the covers on the 2021 Colorado, debuting a whole new look for America’s favorite mid-size truck. The Colorado will officially make its first public appearance this fall at the 2019 Method Race Wheels Laughlin Desert Classic before heading to the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

So what is new for the 2021 Chevy Colorado? For starters, it gets a new Sand Dune Metallic exterior color for Z71 and ZR2 trim levels. Chevy has also revised the bowtie emblem for the Colorado and added more differentiation among trims. For example, the WT, LT, and Z71 models benefit from new skid plates, lower fascias, and updated center bars. The bowties on the first two will be gold, while the Z71 bears a new black bowtie.

If you go with the ZR2 off-road Colorado model, you’ll get the Colorado’s new, exclusive front fascia. The ZR2 model will also now come standard with red tow hooks.

“We’ve sold 520,000 Colorado pickups in five years through a relentless, foot-on-the-gas approach to product and feature updates,” commented Bob Krapes, director of marketing, Chevrolet Trucks. “With its new-look front end and tailgate, Colorado will now have a more aggressive appearance to match its award-winning capability.”

We can’t wait to see you here at Sunrise Chevrolet Buick GMC at Collierville when the 2021 Chevy Colorado hits lots later this year.
