Hot Wheels Edition of the Chevrolet Camaro

11/28/12

Steve Moore Chevrolet heard a rumor that really got people wondering if there was truth to the gossip.

Chevrolet revealed that a Hot Wheels Edition of the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro is going to be released later this year. Steve Moore Chevrolet would consider this a treat for men and little boys alike!

Hot Wheels started in 1968 with a 16-car line up, referred to by collectors as the “Sweet Sixteen,â€Â which includes the Custom Camaro.

2013 marks the 45th anniversary for Hot Wheels.

Although the Camaro has been a ˜Hot Wheels™ option for car loving kids around the United States since the sixties, the Hot Wheels Edition of the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro is the first time a full-size production Hot Wheels car has been for sale by any manufacturer.

The Kinetic Blue Hot Wheels Edition Camaro with black 21-inch wheels with red accents, black leather trim with red and black seat stitching, Hot Wheels logo in the seats, and each door has a Hot Wheels decal/ The Hot Wheels Edition Camaro will only be sold during the first quarter of 2013 and will be available in coupe and convertible models.

The Hot Wheels special edition option package will cost $6,995.

According to the NY Times, “Harry Dean Bradley is credited with designing the first 16 Hot Wheels, which were released in 1968. The most distinctive Hot Wheels car he did was the Deora. In 2003, for Hot Wheels’ 35th anniversary, Mattel ordered up a full-sized Deora II. It was built with the help of customizer Chip Foose and the custom builder Five Axis. It was powered by a Cadillac Northstar V8 engine.

Siri Helps Keep your Eyes On the Road

6/26/12

For the majority of the last decade, Steve Jobs has completely transformed the capabilities of cell phones by unveiling of the iPhone. Since 2007, the initial iPhone model has undergone several revisions and has transformed to the iPhone4S.

The iPhone has made organization and communication easier through facetime, social networking, and acts as a portable media player. And for the first time, the iPhone4s features a natural language voice control system called Siri.

Chevrolet is Pairing with Siri

Siri can answer questions, send text messages, make calls, and even set reminders. And starting next year, Steve Moore is excited bring this news that Siri will be at your service in GM vehicles. General Motors, one of 9 automakers, is working with Apple Inc. to add a Siri button on the dashboard or steering wheel in models as early as next year to provide drivers with turn-by-turn navigation, provide real time traffic updates, and ultimately give drivers an "eyes free" driving experience by simply talking to Siri.

Chevrolet is Pairing with Siri

Steve Moore assures drivers that the hands and eyes free driving experience is easy. Drivers just connect their iPhone 4s to their car and connect to the GM application and viola! You can make calls, play music, hear and dictate texts, get directions, or hear calendar plans, all through your personal assistant, Siri.

Steve Moore Chevrolet offers a safe driving experience

General Motors uses extensive testing to ensure the quality and safety of Steve Moore Chevrolet vehicles, but the height of safety is lessened by texting and driving. Siri deals with your phone while you focus on driving, solving the overwhelming driving distraction.

The iPhone 4s sold over 4 million phones in the first week alone, and all of us at Steve Moore Chevrolet are positive that by adding Siri to new models, will be beneficial to iPhone 4s owners and other drivers by decreasing texting and driver accidents significantly.

2013 Chevy Volt Gains More Perks from Battery Improvements

6/18/12

General Motors has made minor changes to the 2013 Chevy EV (Electric Vehicle) Volt that are creating fundamental opportunities for drivers on the West Coast and even at the White House. Steve Moore Chevrolet is bringing you the exclusive details about Chevy?s latest eco-friendly and polished vehicle of 2013.

GM increased the battery storage capacity and changed the cell chemistry resulting in an additional 3 miles added to a single charge, making the all electric range of the 2013 Chevy Volt 38 miles.

Have you ever visited Charlotte with your family to explore Discovery Place or wanted to participate in one of the many festivals that take over the uptown area and never have anywhere to park your fuming gas-guzzler? That wouldn?t be a problem if all you needed a charging station.

Through the Power2Charlotte initiative, the city of Charlotte will have a total of 26 EV charging stations at 7 different locations in the city by the end of next month. In addition to the construction of charging stations, The City of Charlotte purchased EVs, one of which is a Chevrolet Volt.

Chevrolet Volt Chief Engineer said that the starting price of the 2013 Chevy Volt is the same price as the 2012 standard model. According to the official Chevrolet website, the 2012 Volt starts at $31,645, before the $7,500 tax credit for being an Electric Vehicle is subtracted.

For you North Carolinians who aren?t familiar with the tax credit opportunity, electric vehicles purchased in or after 2010 are eligible for a federal income tax credit of up to $7,500 for helping the environment stay clean.

But to make this eco-friendly reward even better, according to a fact sheet sent to the Washington Examiner in March, Obama proposed to increase the tax credit for electric vehicles to $1,000. More importantly, Obama will propose that the tax credit be immediately available as soon as the car is purchased.

This may be enough to convince some Chevy enthusiasts to switch to an EV, but for those Charlotte and Concord area citizens who are still on the fence, there is more! Since the recent changes on the Volt, it now qualifies to ride in the HOV lanes in the state of California, even with only one person in the car. Because of this change, California has seen a dramatic increase in Chevy Volt sales. North Carolina is making big strides to stay eco-friendly as well, which is why Steve Moore Chevrolet is expecting the 2013 Volt a major success in the Charlotte and Concord area.

So to sum it up, if you purchase a 2013 Volt you get 3 more miles per charge at the same price as the 2012 model but with a bigger tax credit, thanks to Obama?s proposal to raise the tax credit for Electric Vehicles, and you have the privilege of riding in the HOV lanes when you take your 2013 Volt on a road trip to California, even if you are the only person in your EV. There is no other competition. Come to Steve Moore Chevrolet and talk to our employees about how you can get your hands on your very own 2013 Chevrolet Volt.
