Winterize Your Chevy In 7 Steps

Is you vehicle ready to battle the elements this winter? Before you find yourself driving through a snow storm of this season, you will want to make sure your vehicle is ready to keep you safe. Follow these tips before venturing out into the winter wonderland. At John Elway Chevrolet On South Broadway we have many service specials that will help you with making sure your vehicle will be 100% for what the winter has to offer. Just follow this link and see what offers we have, Service Specials. Come to John Elway Chevrolet and be ready for the winter.
  • Get a Tune-Up. Have your mechanic check your hoses, belts and anti-freeze. A weakened hose or belt can break and leave you stranded, or a weak solution of anti-freeze can ice up and damage your cooling system.
  • Check Your BatteryMake sure your car’s battery connection is clean, tight and corrosion-free. The battery should be securely mounted. If the battery is three years old or more, have it tested and replace it if necessary.
  • Check Your Heater and Defroster. If your heater isn’t working, you’ll probably know. But what about front and rear defrosters? Before you’re faced with a frosty windshield, turn your front and rear defrosters on and off to make sure they’re working.
  • Give Yourself a Brake. If you have the slightest concern that something’s amiss with your brakes, get them inspected immediately. If you have anti-lock brakes, you should avoid pumping the brakes if you begin to slide.
  • New Wiper Blades and Washer Fluid. Even if your windshield wiper blades are in good condition, you might want to upgrade to a rubber coated snow blade that can handle the extra weight of wet snow. They’re not expensive, and could make your winter driving a lot safer in the long run. Slush and mud splashed on a windshield can spell danger for a winter driver. Make sure your washer fluid reservoir is sufficiently full, and keep a spare jug in the trunk.
  • Take a Look at Your TiresYour tires need to have adequate tread with “grip” to propel you through the snow. Take advantage of our 30 day price match guarantee and get the right tires for your vehicle installed by factory trained technicians. 
  • Fill Her Up! One of the best driving tips for winter is to keep your tank more than half full at all times. It will help you avoid freezing in your fuel lines, and will keep you safer in winter weather situations.
If for any reason you are in need of assistance with any one of these safety precautions please give us a call and we will be happy to help you in anyway we can. Please give us a call at (720) 279-1799

Pedestrian Avoidance System for the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu

A new pedestrian-avoidance system will debut on the redesigned 2016 Chevrolet Malibu and new Cadillac CT6 sedans, as General Motors speeds more active-safety technologies to market.
The 2016 Chevrolet Spark hatchback will feature optional lane-departure warning and forward-collision alert systems, GM also said.
GM announced the new active-safety features as it showed off its new 52-acre Active Safety Test Area here late last week.
The front pedestrian braking system will alert the driver of an impending collision and then automatically apply the brakes to help reduce the collision's severity or avoid the collision.
Pricing will be announced later on the safety packages.
The 2016 Malibu goes on sale at Chevrolet dealerships in the fourth quarter, while the CT6 sedan is expected to arrive at Cadillac dealerships in early 2016.
Other crash-avoidance technologies set to roll out on 2016 GM vehicles include City Speed Front Automatic Braking, which helps to avoid front-end collisions at very low speeds by automatically applying the brakes and a night-vision system that gives the driver an infrared image of the area beyond the headlights to warn of pedestrians or large animals.
GM's new safety facility will also be used to test vehicle-to-vehicle technologies, which will be standard on the 2017 Cadillac CTS.

The 2016 Chevy Silverado Update Look Good!

Chevy Trucks are on a roll, with Chevrolet pickup sales up 32 percent so far this year. Chevrolet intends to strengthen this momentum with significant updates for the 2016 Silverado 1500 full-size pickup.
“The redesigned 2016 Silverado will build on Chevy Trucks’ legacy of dependability. It will feature a more muscular appearance and offer new customer-focused technologies,” said Sandor Piszar, marketing director for Chevy Trucks.
“New front end designs with bold horizontal elements, sculpted hoods and dramatic lighting reflect the strength and refinement that have helped make Silverado the fastest growing full-size pickup brand this year.”
Other changes for 2016 will include expanded use of 8-speed automatic transmissions, updated Chevy MyLink with support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and additional safety technologies.
The redesign of the 2016 Silverado 1500 is part of an aggressive strategy to build on Chevy Trucks’ momentum.
Since the introduction of the all-new Silverado 1500 in the spring of 2013, Silverado sales have grown by double digits, on a percentage basis, each year. Through June of this year, Silverado sales are up 14.6 percent. Chevrolet also sold 41,575 midsize Colorados during the same period.
More product details will be available this fall, closer to the public debut of the redesigned 2016 Silverado 1500.

Chevrolet Adds Theft Alarm Notifications

Chevrolet today announced Theft Alarm Notification, an enhancement to the existing Stolen Vehicle Assistance service allowing OnStar subscribers to receive a real-time alert when the vehicle’s alarm sounds. The service will be available to eligible subscribers later this summer.

The Theft Alarm Notification feature is another enhancement to OnStar’s existing security features, which include Remote Ignition Block and Stolen Vehicle Slowdown. With Theft Alarm Notification, OnStar subscribers can opt in to receive an alert through text, email or phone if a theft attempt triggers their vehicle’s alarm system and the alarm sounds.

“Prompt response and quick awareness of theft situations give customers a greater chance to recover stolen property,” said Sandor Piszar, director of Chevrolet Truck Marketing. “By leveraging the connection that OnStar provides, Chevrolet owners can remain in contact with their vehicle, even when it is out of sight.”

If a properly equipped Chevrolet is stolen, OnStar advisors will work with local authorities and use GPS technology to pinpoint the vehicle’s location. In certain models, if the conditions are safe, advisors can send a signal to slow down the vehicle, aiding police officers in its recovery and preventing a potential high-speed chase.

Theft Alarm Notification leverages the features of the Theft Protection Package available on Chevrolet’s full-size Tahoe and Suburban LT and LTZ SUVs, which feature glass breakage sensors, interior motion sensors and an inclination/tilt sensor. Each sound an alarm if the vehicle is lifted off the ground, a break-in is attempted, or if motion is detected within the vehicle when the alarm is armed.

The Theft Alarm Notification feature is included within OnStar’s Stolen Vehicle Assistance service and is available to subscribers with the Security or Guidance package and a compatible vehicle. Most 2014 model year and newer Chevrolet vehicles are equipped to offer Theft Alarm Notification. Subscribers can confirm if their vehicle is compatible here or by speaking with an OnStar advisor.

Advanced Tech Tailors 2016 Camaro Driving Experience

New technologies in the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro will enable drivers to tailor the car to the moment, whether it's heading to work, touring the Pacific Coast Highway or lapping a road course.

"We wanted to build on the flexibility of the current Camaro ZL1, which is great for grand touring, commuting, the drag strip and track days," said Aaron Link, Camaro lead development engineer. "The new Camaro will be even more adaptable, with up to eight vehicle attributes adjusted to fit a driver's preference."

As a result, the all-new Camaro will set the technological benchmark for the segment.

Most of the features can be changed via the new Drive Mode Selector, which includes Snow/Ice, Tour, Sport and - on SS models - Track settings. Calibrations for throttle progression, steering, stability control and more are optimized for each setting.

For the first time the Camaro SS will be available with Magnetic Ride Control, previously available only on the Camaro ZL1. The active damping system offers three preset programs - Tour, Sport and Track - that adjust the ride and handling balance. From there, it reads road and driver inputs at 1,000 times per second, and automatically adjusts the dampers for optimal performance.

Additionally, there is an enhanced dual-mode exhaust system. New electronically controlled valves can bypass the mufflers under spirited acceleration, delivering improved performance and greater sound levels. It also offers personalization options, from a "stealth" mode to a more aggressive "track" mode.

Chevrolet will introduce the all-new, 2016 Camaro on Saturday, May 16, during a special public event at Detroit's Belle Isle Park.

No.1 Chevy COPO Camaro Sale to Benefit Wounded Veterans

Chevrolet is selling the first 2015 COPO Camaro race car to raise money for Achilles Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans, which helps wounded veterans participate in marathons and share their success within a supportive community including their families.
The hand-built car carries serial number 2015COPO001. It will be sold on Saturday, April 18, at the Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach auction, with 100 percent of the winning bid going to Achilles Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans, a non-profit organization that helps disabled athletes, including veterans, gain access to races, equipment, and training dedicated to improve their physical abilities.
“This sale gives the highest bidder the opportunity to buy the first of only 69 factory-assembled 2015 COPO Camaro race cars, the final year of the fifth-generation Camaro,” said Jim Campbell, U.S. vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. “Chevrolet is excited to offer this milestone Camaro to help a very worthy organization.”
Chevrolet introduced 2015 COPO Camaro No. 001 last fall at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, and it has been featured in Chevrolet Performance advertising and other marketing initiatives. Its distinctive look includes an Abalone White exterior with matte gray and orange accents, and bold “15” graphics. Power comes from a 350-cubic-inch LSX-based racing engine topped with a Whipple 2.9L supercharger, which is NHRA-rated at 555 horsepower. The engine is backed by a three-speed automatic racing transmission – a powertrain combination good for reaching a quarter mile in the mid-eight seconds.
Each COPO Camaro is built by hand starting with production hardware, including the same body in white used for production models. They’re designed to dominate NHRA Stock Eliminator drag racing. The COPO Camaro takes its name and production quota from Central Office Production Order, a process used in the 1960s for fleet managers to order unusual combinations of options.
The COPO Camaro race car is fitted with an NHRA-approved roll cage and other safety equipment, along with racing chassis and suspension components – including a unique solid rear axle system in place of a regular-production Camaro’s independent rear axle.
COPO serial number 001, lot number 3003, will go across the block at approximately 5 p.m. EDT on Saturday, April 19, 2015. Watch live coverage on Velocity Channel.

2015 Colorado and Corvette Named Top Rated Vehicles

The 2015 Chevrolet Colorado Has It All
Chevy has reinvented the midsize pickup. The 3.6L V6 engine provides best-in-class 305 horsepower while also delivering best-in-class fuel economy with an EPA-estimated 26 MPG highway.
The Colorado offers the refined and quiet interior of a sedan with the utility of a truck, and an available high-speed 4G LTE Wi-Fi connection turns the truck into the ultimate hot spot.
Power and Efficiency When You Need It 
With the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine creating 200 hp and the 3.6-liter V-6 generating 305, both trucks have more than enough muscle. The Colorado is rated to tow 7,000 pounds with a V-6 and towing package and the 2.5-liter is rated for 3,500 pounds. The EPA estimates 20/27/22 mpg and 17/24/20 mpg for the four-cylinder and six-cylinder models, respectively.

Sedan Comfort, Truck Practicality  

Colorado is the first small truck to combine design features such as inlaid, triple-sealed doors, thick windshield and side glass, and liquid-applied sound deadener to help reduce wind noise inside the cab and keep the road noise out. So you’ll be able to crank up the music on the available Bose® sound system while Colorado turns down the world outside. 
Cockpit-style gauges and intuitive controls combine form and function for easy, intuitive operation. Both available leather-appointed and standard cloth seats are shaped for maximum support and provide ample rear leg room. 
A large center console provides easy, secure storage for your gadgets. With a dedicated nonskid space for charging devices, you’ll never hunt around for a misplaced smartphone or cord. Additional storage and up to four USB ports add convenience for the rest of the gang.

The 2015 Chevy Corvette is America's Sports Car

Aesthetic Impact. Every inch of the Corvette Stingray exterior is shaped to enhance high-performance driving. Data from the Corvette Racing program was used to help balance front and rear grip. 

Stronger, Lighter Carbon Fiber. Rigid, race-car-inspired carbon fiber and carbon-nano-composite underbody panels reduce weight to achieve optimal handling, balance and acceleration.
Driver-Oriented Cockpit. Illuminated by innovative digital features and intelligent driver controls, the Stingray cockpit is a stunning change from your typical interior scenery. An ingenious available color Head-Up Display complements the two customizable 8-inch color LED screens. The color center screen has an entertainment interface and interior design is a highly intuitive retractable, tablet inspired touch-screen.

Hand-Stretched Leather. 
Napa leather, available on the 3LT trim level, is a testament to the finely crafted Stingray interior. Free from imperfections, its natural grain dismisses the notion of synthetic textures.

Lighter, More Rigid, More Precise. One-third the weight of steel, the latest generation Corvette aluminum space frame is 100 pounds (45 kilograms) lighter and 57% more rigid than its steel predecessor.

Optimized Powertrain. The 6.2L LT1 V8 engine boasts 460 horsepower and 465 lb.-ft. of torque,
plus 0-to-60 times of 3.7 seconds. Compact engine design lowers the hoodline and vehicle center of gravity

Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation Donation

From a modest beginning in 1962, the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation (MCSF) has developed into a nationwide non-profit offering financial support worth nearly $90,000,000 to over 33,000 young men and women as they pursue education in their chosen fields.

MCSF provides assistance to students in every state of the union, including 49 here in Colorado for the current school year, with an expectation of that number increasing next year to at least 54 students.

We are extremely honored to support this worthwhile foundation. Those who serve our country and their children deserve our unwavering support. That is why we have committed $5,000 each year for the next 4 years. The children of our brave service men and women deserve all of our support for the incredible sacrifices their families make everyday.

Many of the applicants are the first in their families to attend college, and it is important to them and their families that they not become an additional burden to their families when they continue their education. It is no exaggeration to say that these people who have faced danger and made sacrifices for our country deserve our support as they continue to contribute to the vitality of our country through the contributions of their children.

To qualify, a student must be the child of a Marine or Navy Corpsman who served with Marines and who served for over 90 days on active duty and received a Good Conduct discharge. The student must maintain a 2.0 GPA, and there must be demonstrated financial need. To learn more, please visit
