Combined with the power of 4G LTE, OnStar is looking to take vehicle connectivity to a whole new level in the future with Skype, Twonky and others being demonstrated in a Chevrolet Volt research vehicle.

The conceptual in-car infotainment system, developed by OnStar in partnership with Verizon, provides access to the Cloud through the Verizon 4G LTE network and allows for direct access to streaming content from a home computer or via a popular streaming service.

The research vehicle has three different content ‘zones’; the driver can stream music, while rear passengers can control their entertainment from screens mounted on the headrests. With everyone in their ‘zone’ passengers can create the ride they are looking for, or share content with other passengers. It doesn’t come more custom, or cool than that.

Ever since the release of the Chevrolet Avalanche, it has captivated truck lovers with a zeal for chasing adventure. Loaded with the capability of a full-size pickup with the convenient interior of an upscale SUV, Avalanche has set a trend among light-duty crew cab pickups through the truck’s dynamic and unique design.

2013 will mark the last year of production for Avalanche.  To celebrate the final run of this versatile pickup, Chevrolet will release the 2013 Black Diamond Avalanche. This special edition will be adorned with the Black Diamond badge and will come standard with a rear camera system, body-color exterior components, Ultrasonic Rear Park Assist, remote vehicle starter system, power-adjustable pedals and fog lamps. The truck will also come in the following color choices: Black, Silver Ice, Blue Topaz, Fairway Metallic and White Diamond.

As a truck known for appealing to thrill-seeking enthusiasts who are constantly on the go, it’s only fitting that this edition is named after the term “Black Diamond” signifying the most challenging and most rewarding of downhill runs for skiers.

“More than 580,000 Avalanches have been sold since its introduction in 2001, and Avalanche has won major awards and recognitions throughout its run,” said Mark Clawson, Avalanche Marketing Manager. “So it’s only fitting that Avalanche retires on a high note.”

Short and Long Term Ideas to Help Boost Your Fuel Economy

With rising gas prices putting a dent in family budgets, it's good to know that there are easy tips that can help you save a little at the pump.

But if you're in the market for a new vehicle, you want to choose one that fits your needs and provides great fuel economy. Chevrolet is proud to have 10 vehicles that offer an EPA-estimated 30 MPG HWY or better, and others that are leading their class in fuel economy.

Want to go even further? Chevy has four cars in the exclusive 40 MPG HWY club.* Cruze Eco. Sonic Sedan and Hatchback. Then there's the Volt, in a category all by itself.

TOTALLY REDESIGNED. AGGRESSIVELY REFINED.
This is Impala like you’ve never seen before.
How does a legend that runs more than 50 years deep become the pinnacle of style, innovation and performance for the next generation? The answer lies in the all-new 2014 Chevrolet Impala.

Impala has always been a flagship for Chevrolet. But a leader should never rest on the laurels of its past — especially when it wears the Chevy bowtie. So, when it came time to reinvent one of the brand’s most iconic nameplates, Chevy designers and engineers reached far into the future and shaped it in the present. The end result is a stunning new interpretation of the Impala that’s only recognizable by its signature badge.

  • 1LE features Camaro ZL1-inspired chassis and suspension enhancements
  • 2013 Camaro LT, SS and ZL1 models available with MyLink infotainment system

The road-racing inspired Camaro 1LE performance package returns for 2013 with unique gearing, suspension tuning, and tires that makes the model capable of more than 1 g of lateral acceleration and a sub-three minute lap time at Virginia International Raceway’s Grand Course. It is offered on Camaro SS coupes with manual transmissions.

“The Camaro 1LE combines the best elements of the SS and ZL1 to take road-racing performance to a whole new level,” said Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer. “That the 1LE breaks the three-minute lap at VIR puts it in the upper echelon of performance cars. That it starts under $40,000 makes the Camaro 1LE one of the most affordable, most capable track-day cars offered by any manufacturer.”
