That marks a 34 percent increase over the same period last year and builds upon the fifth consecutive year of record sales.

Chevy’s Super Bowl Commercial Gives Viewers a Heart Attack

Ok not, really. But we’re willing to bet there’s more than a few football fanatics whose heart actually did skip a beat or two when the Chevy commercial aired. The spot, appropriately called “Blackout,” led viewers to believe their TV had died just before the big game was about to start.

Chevy’s Super Bowl commercial begins with an aerial shot of the University of Phoenix Stadium, and some commentary that sounds very convincing. Quickly, the picture fails resulting in a black out. Check out Twitter right around 6:30 pm – America was a little freaked out.

2015 Colorado - Chevy’s Super Bowl Commercial The commercial quickly resumes, saying, “What would you do if your TV went out?” The commercial then goes on, touting the all new Chevy Colorado and its built-in 4G LTE WiFi. The message is very clear; we are more dependent on a reliable internet connection than ever before. Today, there’s no reason to be caught without connectivity.

“When you have a groundbreaking product like the Chevy Colorado, you must deliver groundbreaking advertising like we are today,” said Paul Edwards, U.S. vice president, Chevrolet Marketing.

The ad breaks the mold in Super Bowl advertising, offering a bold, creative way of capturing attention and sending a very clear (and memorable) message. Chevy, you may have made the Twitter-sphere very angry for a moment or two, but your method was creative and effective.

You know you want one. Stop by Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet today to check out the exciting Colorado for yourself!

Chevrolet Corvette Fastest Supercar of 2015

Quick! What American sports car is only matched in performance by the luxury brands Ferrari and Lamborghini?

If you said the Chevrolet Corvette, you’re right on the money, which is good because you’ll need a good amount to nab the fastest supercar of 2015. The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 smokes nearly every muscle car and supercar you can name with a 0 to 60 mph time of 2.95 seconds.

2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06That’s right; the supercar hits 60 mph in the time it took you to read that sentence. At less than half the price of the Lamborghini and Ferrari makes, the Corvette starts at about $79,000. A bargain for what you get.

An all-new LT4 supercharged 6.2L V8 engine purrs under the hood, putting out 650 horsepower matched by 650 lb-ft of torque. When the engine is put through its paces, enlarged cooling ducts and grilles help to cool the beast.

Smashing the brakes will bring the supercar from 60 to 0 in just under 100 feet. Fuel economy is what you would expect from a monster like this, 13 mpg city and 21 mpg highway. A top-of-the-line Z07 model will cost you around $88,000, which is still a little more than a third of its closest competitors on the track.

Forget the Ferrari; your performance value is in the Chevrolet Corvette Z06, the fastest supercar of 2015.
