Chevy Corvette Named One of the Best Roadsters of 2022

2022 Chevrolet Corvette | Fort Meade, FL

Regardless of its humble beginnings in 1953, the iconic Corvette now boasts itself as the longest-produced sports car. If you’ve seen or experienced the exhilarating drive that a Corvette offers, it shouldn’t surprise you that it was ranked a 9.1 overall on U.S. News and World Report’s list of 2022’s best roadsters.

U.S. News gave the Corvette a 9.4 performance score – and it’s no secret why. 2020 saw a complete redesign of the Corvette which turned it into a mid-engine sports car. The 6.2-liter V8 LT4 engine is now housed behind the passenger’s seats for increased aerodynamics and performance.

Pushing boundaries is light work for the LT4. A whopping 465 lb-ft of torque and 490 horsepower are routed to the rear wheels, allowing for 0-60 mph in under three exhilarating seconds. The Corvette also embraced an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission this year. Control of this is easily accessed on both the steering wheel and the center console.

The Z51 Performance Package enables even more track-ready capability. It includes handling aids such as stiffer suspension and an electronic limited-slip differential. Upgraded engine cooling and a performance exhaust allow the Corvette to reach its 194 mph track speed more efficiently.

The First-Ever Pursuit-Rated Chevy Silverado Joins Iconic Tahoe PPV

Chevy recently commemorated its 25th anniversary of the Tahoe Police Pursuit Vehicle by adding one more vehicle to the PPV lineup: the Silverado 1500. Per Chevy, the pursuit-rated Silverado will arrive in the U.S. later this summer.

The Silverado PPV borrows some key elements from its Tahoe sibling. It has a 5.3-liter V8 and 10-speed automatic transmission that puts forth 355 horsepower. All-wheel drive gives the truck enhanced stability and traction to conquer various terrain and road conditions.

It can also tow 1,100 pounds more than the Tahoe PPV — 9,300 pounds, to be exact. That way, police officers can transport trailers for marine and mounted divisions when necessary. 

Chevy has equipped the Silverado PPV with many features for rougher routes, such as a skid plate, locking rear differential, and Rancho shocks. A 2-inch lift enables a 25.9-degree approach angle and a best-in-class 11.4-inch ground clearance rating. 

The pursuit-rated Silverado has safety systems and convenient touches to make officers’ drives safer and less stressful. Each Silverado PPV automatically comes with the Chevrolet Safety Assist package. Inside the cabin, the heavy-duty vinyl flooring and rear seats are easy to clean. And law enforcement can leverage remote keyless entry and push-to-start technologies to hit the road faster when urgency is a priority.

Stay tuned to our blog for more exciting news about Chevy products like the Silverado PPV. And make sure to stop by Greenwood Chevrolet to test drive one of the shiny new Silverado 1500 trucks in our inventory.

Chevrolet Takes Home 4 Car and Driver Editors’ Choice Awards

2022 Chevrolet Tahoe | Ft Meade, FL

Each year the editors at Car and Driver select vehicles worthy of the Editors’ Choice awards. This year, four Chevrolet models won these accolades: Chevy Suburban, Chevy Tahoe, Chevy Camaro ZL1, and Chevy Corvette.

Fullsize SUV honors

Both the Chevy Suburban and the Tahoe earned recognition in the full-size SUV category. The judges called the Suburban sophisticated and an excellent trailering vehicle. They also praised it for its ample space for passengers and gear, offering more room than its award-winning sibling, the Tahoe. The Tahoe, though, had plenty of bragging rights, as it won for its still spacious cabin, towing capacity, and modern features.

Muscle car mention

The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 earned a top spot in the muscle car category and impressed the editors with its supercharged V8 engine. “Not only is the ZL1 the ultimate Camaro, but it’s also the king of the racetrack-ready muscle cars,” according to Car and Driver.

Sports car winner

Taking its rightful honor in the sports car category, the Chevrolet Corvette was lauded for its high-end materials, features and — of course — thrilling performance. C/D noted, “Ferrari moves and incandescent performance with a Chevrolet price tag makes the Corvette C8 a hugely desirable sports car, one with mass appeal.”

Does Your Vehicle Need New Windshield Wipers?

Does Your Vehicle Need New Windshield Wipers? | Ft. Meade, FL

Spring rain is on its way to Florida. To maximize your visibility and stay safe on the road, it’s essential to have well-maintained windshield wipers. Here’s a look at the signs that it’s time to replace your vehicle’s wiper blades.

Strange sounds

A good set of windshield wipers should be relatively quiet. If they’re damaged, they’ll squeak, stutter, stall, or vibrate when in use.

Streaks

Worn-out wipers will leave grimy streaks on the glass, limiting your visibility. They may also fail to clear away water in those spots.

Check your service records

Even if your car’s wiper blades aren’t showing these signs, it’s a good idea to consider the last time they were changed. Florida’s intense sun and precipitation can cause wiper blades to wear out more quickly than the typically recommended service interval suggests.

Helping wiper blades last longer

To get more service out of your car’s windshield wipers, consider these pointers. If you’ve got tough debris, like dried-on dead bugs or bird droppings, consider scrubbing them off with a squeegee instead of using the wipers. And to protect the rubber or silicone wipers from dry rotting, park in the garage or in the shade.
