2018 Centennial Editions Celebrate 100 Years of Chevrolet Trucks

100 Years of Chevrolet Trucks

100 Years Of Greatness

Today, Chevrolet is one of the world’s foremost producers of high-feature trucks that drivers depend on for everything from work to play and everything in between. Such success doesn’t happen overnight, though. In fact, 2018 marks 100 years of Chevrolet trucks. Here at Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet, we want to celebrate by taking a look at some highlights from a century of Chevy trucks.

Game-changing origins

The first purpose-built Chevrolet truck was first available 100 years ago, in 1918. The Chevrolet One-Ton was a budget-conscious, flexible truck platform available as a cowl and chassis or an express body with an option eight-post curtain top. The One-Ton was available for just over $1,000 and delivered 36 horsepower. Perhaps this doesn’t sound like much, but this was just the first in a line of now legendary Chevrolet trucks.

Legendary Legacy

By the 1960’s, Chevrolet trucks came in a variety of models and had huge appeal to drivers of all sorts. The 1967 C/K10 Series is a particular stand-out and signaled a shift in style that foreshadowed the signature look of modern classics like the Silverado. The C/K10 Series was affordable but boasted considerably more torque and power than early models like the original One-Ton.

Leading the way in performance and innovation

The 2018 Chevrolet Centennial Edition Silverado and Centennial Edition Colorado represent 100 years of automotive innovation, and one minute behind the wheel makes it obvious how much has gone into these impressive pickups.

Whether you need a powerful truck for the work site or a versatile weekend warrior, there has never been a better time to get a Chevrolet Truck than now, and you can find plenty of pickups here at Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet in Newton, NC. We would love to help you find the perfect truck for you today!

Benefits of Traveling in a Chevy Cruze

Chevy Cruze

Get Ready For Fun In the Chevy Cruze

If you’re looking for the perfect new vehicle, you might be pleasantly surprised to learn just how versatile the compact car segment can be. The Chevy Cruze is the best of its kind, and fits perfectly with many different lifestyles. Here are our five favorite benefits of driving a Chevy Cruze from Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet.

Fuel Efficiency

Whether you opt for the sedan or the first-ever hatchback Chevy Cruze, you’ll find that this tiny car sips the gas. At best, the Cruze gets up to 40 mpg highway*, allowing you to spend less time at the gas pump and more time on the road.

Cargo Space

Despite its compact size, there’s plenty of space inside of the Cruze for cargo and passengers. Versatile seating makes room for up to 47.2 cu. ft. of cargo in the hatchback model.

Chevy Cruze Safety

The Chevy Cruze is full of proactive and reactive safety features, including available driver assist technologies and 10 standard airbags.

Intelligent Tech

You’ll have a hard time finding the latest technology in most compact cars. But in the Chevy Cruze, the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system with a 7-inch color touch screen is the standard. Add to that smartphone compatibility and available Wi-Fi, and the Cruze is as good as an office away from home.

Diesel Option

The Chevy Cruze is full of surprises, the latest one being the all-new 2017 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel Sedan. The 1.6-liter turbo diesel engine gets up to 52 mpg highway* making it the most efficient non-hybrid option in the country.

Living in a House While Renovating

Living in a House While Renovating

Having recently undergone a remodeling and renovation ourselves, we speak from experience when we say it isn’t easy. While the end result in an attractive, modern look and streamlined interior, being present throughout the process could be stressful at times. Live and learn, as they say!

We have a few tips for living in a house while renovating drawn from our personal experience here at Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet.

  • Know the Schedule It’s incredibly important to know the construction schedule if you plan on living in your house throughout the renovation. Make sure to deactivate your security system during those hours. Knowing the schedule ahead of time will also offer more privacy.
  • Contain Kids and Pets Kids and pets tend to wander, and that generally doesn’t end well in construction areas. Do your best to keep your wandering loved ones contained. In addition to a potential accident, other problems could include construction delays and extra stress that you simply don’t need.
  • Wear Shoes A construction site is a hot bed of fallen nails, scattered screws, and wily wood chippings. Wearing shoes is pertinent to protecting your feet, even if you are not walking through the construction area constantly. It only takes one pierced foot and a trip to the emergency room to make you wonder if the renovation will be worth it.

GM Aims For Safety With Rear Seat Reminder Technology

rear seat reminder technology

General Motors has often been the automaker leading the charge in introducing groundbreaking safety technology. For instance, GM innovated the recent Teen Driver system. It’s a brilliant bit of technology that helps parents keep track of their teen driver’s performance.

Now General Motors has done it again with the brand new Rear Seat Reminder Technology. Just as the name suggests, this technology reminds drivers to check the rear seat when the vehicle is turned off. The new gadget will be available on seventeen 2018 GM models.

The way the Rear Seat Reminder Technology works is that it keeps track of the rear door use. If either rear door has been opened or closed within ten minutes of the vehicle being turned on, then the system will sound a chime and display an alert in the driver information center when the vehicle has been turned off.

GM recently made the announcement that this technology would become widely available in 2018. That announcement came on the heels of news that a man who had abandoned his infant in the rear seat of his vehicle, which resulted in the death of the child, had been sentenced to life in prison. GM clearly aims to prevent these kinds of tragic incidents with the advent of the Rear Seat Reminder Technology.
