The 2014 Chevrolet Impala Offers Secure Item And Info Storage

Have you ever felt uneasy giving your keys to a valet? If so, you’ll especially appreciate a new feature on the 2014 Chevrolet Impala! The redesigned Chevrolet Flagship Sedan (which will be available at our Youngstown, Ohio dealerships in about a month) will feature “Valet Mode”. Valet mode shields your personal items and information   from prying eyes and sticky fingers! 

The Impala’s new center stack features an 8-inch color touch screen radio that will double as a PIN-activated retractable face plate over a secure storage bin. The storage behind the touch screen is large enough to hold valuables like your iPod, wallet, smartphone, etc.

One of the features of the new Impala is Chevrolet’s MyLink system which, when synced with your smartphone will hold all of your contacts and make them accessible through voice commands. However, when you activate Valet Mode all of this information, as well as your on-board navigation are inaccessible!

You’ll be able to access Valet Mode through MyLink’s settings menu via a four-digit code, much like a safe. A confirmation entry of the code locks the bin and secures all of your info!

For information about the great features of the all new sedan, you can browse our gallery of real photos of the Impala here: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.511012102283300.129451.165997410118106&type=3 or watch a special presentation about the features done just for our online friends, here: http://youtu.be/HUUbgMvy_3w!

The Rumors Are True! There Is A Diesel Version Of The Cruze Coming!

By now, if you follow the auto industry, you’ve undoubtedly heard that the 2014 Chevrolet Cruze will be available in diesel! The National Biodiesel Board had some very kind things to say during their review of the 2013 Chevrolet Cruze Light Duty Diesel Passenger Car! The vehicle was recently approved for use with 20% biodiesel blends (B20).

Take a look at what Steve Howell (technical director for the National Biodiesel Board) had to say:

We applaud General Motors for its foresight in approving the new diesel Chevy Cruze for use with the B20 biodiesel blends. Many people don’t realize that today’s new technology diesel engines powered by ultra-low sulfur biodiesel blends provide tailpipe emissions as clean or cleaner than natural gas, while providing superior fuel economy, horsepower and durability. In addition, when you combine the increased efficiency diesel engines with the low carbon nature of an advanced biofuel like biodiesel, new technology diesel engines are positioned to become the clean – and green – technology of the future, and we’re proud to see GM leading the way with its support for B20

The new Chevrolet Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel features a 2.0L disel engine that will offer an estimated 42 mpg highway and an expected best-in-segment range based on GM testing. Using modern diesel exhaust technology and ultra-low sulfur fuel the Cruze will be 90% cleaner than other makes, and will be General Motor’s cleanest passenger car ever produced.

The Cruze’s engine is based on the proven architecture already used in Europe where GM is already selling close to 40% of all Cruze models with a diesel engine. Chevrolet’s US Engineers worked with German and Italian engineering groups to adapt a version of the engine for use in the United States where diesel emissions standards are much higher and where there are a wider range of driving conditions.

So why is this important? General Motors is committed to reducing their carbon footprint and made a pledge they would do so over the next several years. This is a MAJOR step for a company that has already delivered on this pledge time and time again. Biodiesel is an advanced biofuel made from sustainable resources such as soybean oil, used cooking oil, and other lipid sources. It’s the first and only EPA approved advanced biofuel produced on a commercial scale across the United States.

For more information about the current models of the Chevrolet Cruze, or about the future diesel Cruze, email us at [email protected] or visit the website for our Chevrolet dealership: www.sweeneychevrolet.com 

General Motor's most fuel efficient and cleanest diesel passenger car will be available soon! For more information contact us at SweeneySales@SweeneyCars.com or visit www.sweeneychevrolet.com

The 2014 Chevrolet Cruze will be available in Diesel!

The 2013 Chevrolet Sonic and Spark will be the first vehicles ever to be available with Apple’s Genius Software Siri! Siri, an intelligent assistant that helps you get things done just by asking it!

The Sonic and Spark are the first vehicles to offer the software completely eyes and hands free. Through the cars’ standard Chevrolet MyLink, customers with a compatible iPhone (iOS6) can direct Siri to perform a number of tasks while thye safely keep their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel. You will be able to interact with Siri with nothing more than your voice. There’ll be no need to take your hands off the wheel, or your eyes off the road.

You will be able to use Siri to do the following:

  • Make voice-activated, hands-free calls to contacts in their iPhone. 
  • Play songs from their iTunes libraries.
  • Listen to, and compose and send iMessages or text messages to anyone in your saved contacts or a phone number you have memorized.
  • Access your calender and add appointments.
  • Minimize distraction even more by keeping the screen of your iPhone from lighting up, even when Siri answers your questions.

Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC Reviews – “It took me longer to write this review then it did for my husband to get me my Chevrolet Avalanche at Sweeney”

At Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC in Youngstown, Ohio we strive to completely satisfy every customer who walks through our doors. When we get feedback like this, it lets us know that we’ve reached that goal. If you’ve got something you’d like us to know about a recent visit to either of our dealerships, email [email protected]!

Take a look at what a recent Sweeney customer had to say about her family’s experience at our Youngstown Chevrolet Dealership as well as dealing with Sales And Leasing Consultant Dave Tacsik and Business Manager Mark Malaska:

My husband and I were shopping online for a 2010/2011 Avalanche.We purchased my current 2004 Avalanche new 9 years ago. I LOVED my 2004 Avalanche and wanted an upgrade, so my husband and I started looking online. We narrowed the search down to three different Avalanches at three different locations, of the three I first chose a white LT because it was many thousands less, but after I noticed that it wasn’t certified I dismissed it and narrowed it down to two different colored LTZ’s at two different locations. One was Black and the other was Grey and the only other difference was the Grey one was $1000.00 more because it had 10,000 miles less on it. So I spoke with each dealer and made my decision who I wanted to go with solely based on how I was spoken too and dealt with over the phone, but I didn’t tell my husband I preferred Sweeney I wanted to see which one he picked and why. My husband talked with people at each dealership for two days and then sat in front of the computer for three hours scrutinizing everything about the two trucks. Finally he made a decision and SWEENEY was the winner. I had chosen Sweeney as well because of the excellent manner in which I was spoken to over the phone. I would call and ask general questions, like where are you located and whom should I speak with regarding a technical issue etc… I was just gauging the atmosphere and I was pleasantly surprised that everyone I spoke with was nice and patient with me and my questions. When I did ask about the vehicle directly I was asked to leave my name and someone would return my call. Now, On the other hand, when Rex called he was getting or giving information and one main reason he chose SWEENEY was because nobody “jacked him around” (his words) He gave or got the information he needed and carried on with his day. He was NOT bothered or hounded three times a day with calls from the dealer and when he said he wanted to purchase the vehicle they believed him. Other dealers were calling him twice a day trying to convince him to stop in, which just annoyed him. When we arrived I shook hands with Dave and left to get back to my kids. My husband was at the dealership for less the an hour and got an AMAZING deal! My husband came home smiling and literally said to me ” That was the Easiest, fastest and the least painful experience I have ever had at a Car dealership! ” I have to agree with him too, he wasn’t even gone 90 minutes, and I am ecstatic with my new truck!! We have nothing but Great things to say about Sweeney! It took me longer to write this review then it did for my husband to get me my Avalanche at Sweeney THANKS DAVE and MARK for the NO STRESS purchase!!

Chevrolet supports the IdleAir project to help truckers avoid idling

How often do you see semi trucks along side the road when you’re driving down the road? Primarily this enables the truck drivers to use their cabins technologies like TV, internet, climate control, etc. while they’re taking their mandatory rest times, or just need a break. In addition to all of the carbon monoxide released into the, it costs truck drivers and their companies a very large sum of money to keep these trucks running.

It’s for these reasons that Chevrolet is supporting the IdleAir Project, which enables truck drivers to use all of these technologies without having to idle their engines. With Chevrolet’s help IdleAIr can further expand the availability of its engine-idling alternative. Drivers who use IdleAIr pull into designated spaces, hook up a window adapter that then accepts a unit from a heating and cooling air vent, TV, power outlets, internet and other conveniences. The truck engine can then be turned off.

Drivers who use IdleAir save 1 gallon of diesel fuel per truck, per hour. Some stations are evening solar powered, further reducing energy used.

Chevrolet has also supported many other projects to help advance green technologies that aid in carbon redution. Check out a few:

  • Chevrolet collaborated with The Nature Conservancy to assist in managing about 20,000 acres of forest to improve ecosystem habitats.
  • In a partnership with Gualala River to help them avoid commercial timber harvesting and allow existing trees to continue to grow.
  • Chevrolet supported Dempsey Ridge wind farm in Oklahoma by investing in 66 wind turbines on 7,500 acres that produce 132MW and doubles as a grazing land for livestock.
