Chevrolet just unveiled the 2015 edition of both vehicles that make up the industry’s best-selling full-size SUV duo. The 2015 Tahoe and the 2015 Suburban both made their debut this week. Both vehicles feature several upgrades to the interior and exterior. Included are new safety features, more advanced technologies, greater refinement, and more functionality than ever before.
Both vehicles are redesigned with an updated styling that helps make for a quieter, more peaceful ride. Thanks to improved aerodynamics and a direct-injected EcoTec3 powertrain, one can expect better fuel efficiency even though official estimates have not been released.
“There are several new features and enhancements at the core of the all-new 2015 Suburban and Tahoe that will extend the legacy Chevrolet has built as the segment leader,” said Tim Mahoney, Chevrolet global chief marketing officer. “Customers will experience greater refinement, efficiency and safety with the same capability that has made Chevrolet the go-to brand for full-size SUVs.”
The new Tahoe and Suburban feature a newer, more contemporary look, first-class comfort, added safety features and plenty more space. Chevy’s full-size SUV sales have been looking up lately, and with these kinds of upgrades we expect this rise to continue for years to come.

Clements Chevrolet is excited for both vehicles to arrive to our dealership in the future. In the meantime, come out today and check out our amazing lineup of the best-selling Tahoe and Suburban.
Several areas across the country have been hit hard in recent weeks by tornadoes. The area that took the worst tornado blow was Moore, Oklahoma. The community located just outside of Oklahoma City was ravaged by a tornado with winds up to 200 MPH. According to the National Weather Service, that is actually a new record. The amount of damage and lives lost is overwhelming and certainly devastating.
Friends, family, neighbors, volunteers, and organizations, like General Motors, are coming together to lend a helping hand to the people of Moore. The importance of the donating time, money, food, and supplies cannot be overstated. GM is stepping up to the plate as the General Motors Foundation is donating, $50,000 to Forgotten Harvest. This a non-profit organization whose recent initiative, Help 4 Oklahoma, is helping to provide food for the people of Oklahoma who are in need.
Chevrolet is also donating a new 2013 Chevy Silverado to help gather and transport food and assist with the relief and recovery efforts.
At Clements Chevrolet, our hearts continue to go out to those recovering from the recent tornados. We’re glad to be a part of the General Motors and Chevrolet family and are proud of their donations to this cause.
As many of you know, the month of May is Military Appreciation Month and Chevrolet is proud to show their respects to our troops both past and present. That’s right, this deal is for Reserves, Veterans, Retirees, along with Active Duty troops and all spouses.
Chevrolet is donating $100 to the Achilles Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans for every vehicle purchase using the Military Discount Program during the month of May. As a way of saying thank you for your service, Chevrolet is also including an Honor and Valor badge as part of the package.
The Achilles Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans is a program designed to help wounded veterans work toward the goal of completing a marathon. Achilles International states, however, that emphasis is mostly on “achievable accomplishment”. They encourage participants to set smaller goals and work their way towards the major goal of a marathon. The program also includes giving specialized equipment such as hand-crank wheelchairs.
Even if you are not a part of the military, you can still show your support by purchasing one of three Honor and Valor designed products. The options include the Honor and Valor badge, Honor and Valor license plate frame, and the Honor and Valor trailer hitch plug insert.
It’s no secret that Chevrolet’s global popularity has skyrocketed the past few years, as indicated by their new global ad campaign, Find New Roads. But few probably realize that it’s actually been 10 sales quarters since Chevrolet didn’t set a global sales record. That right, Chevrolet set another global sales record by selling 1.18 million vehicles in the first quarter of 2013 and continuing their amazing hot streak to 10.
“Chevrolet is growing around the world by leveraging GM’s global engineering and design expertise to deliver the right products in the right markets,” said Mark Reuss, GM president of North America.
One of the main reasons for the recent global success is small, subcompact cars like the Chevrolet Cruze. The Cruze has been wildly popular around the world since it was first launched in 2009 and over 2 million have been sold worldwide since then.
“Because a product like the Cruze has been developed for different markets with a wide variety of consumer needs, we have the flexibility to offer more performance and capability options – like the Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel model that will be launching in the U.S. later this year,”said Reuss.
Sales have picked up around the world but still the biggest chunk comes from the United States. There were over 469,000 vehicles sold and a 5% increase for the quarter. Leading the way in terms of increase in America was the updated Chevy Traverse, whose sales rose 22% for the Quarter.
Clements Chevrolet, located in Rochester, MN, features a great selection of all your favorite Chevy vehicles, including the global favorite Chevy Cruze, and the increasingly popular Chevy Traverse.
The Chicago Auto Show doesn’t receive nearly the hype that the North American International Auto Show in Detroit does, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t have much anticipated models to unveil. Chevrolet’s latest was the high-mileage diesel model of the Chevrolet Cruze. The model, which is Chevy’s first diesel car in the United States since 1986, will be available at dealerships throughout the country this summer.
The exterior looks pretty much the same as any other Chevy Cruze. One of the few differences that can be spotted is a 2.0 TD on the outside symbolizing the Turbo Diesel that is under the hood. With a 2.0-liter, 148-horsepower diesel engine, it’s expected that this Cruze will get up to 42 miles per gallon on the highway. With a 15 gallon tank, you could drive over 600 miles between fill-ups. The Cruze Diesel also features 248 lb. ft. of torque and can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 8.6 seconds.
GM hasn’t sold a diesel car in the US since 1986 when the subcompact 1986 Chevrolet Corvette was available but are certainly excited for the release of their latest one. “Cruze turbo diesel is the cleanest operating diesel engine ever produced by General Motors,” said chief engineer for GM’s small cars, Gary Altman. “We leveraged our global engineering expertise to take a great diesel engine from Europe and improve it to meet the stringent U.S. standards.”
Clements Chevrolet is looking forward to this much-anticipated Chevy Cruze Diesel arriving later this year.
Chevrolet unveiled the all-new 2014 Chevrolet Impala at the New York International Auto Show this week. GM has redesigned the Impala to resemble a more high-end vehicle in design and performance.
The 2014 Chevrolet Impala will offer 3 different engine options: a 2.5-liter four cylinder, a 3.6-liter V6, and a 2.4-liter four cylinder with eAssist. This feature will allow for the gas engine to shut off while the car is not in motion and will increase fuel efficiency.
A power-dome hood, sculpted body sides and pronounced rear fenders are all design features that will be included on the 2014 Impala. Other standard features on the Impala will also include 18-inch wheels, projector-beam headlights, and a 4.2-inch color display screen.
There will also be several technological additions to the 2014 Impala, including an infotainment system and electronic safety features. The 2014 Impala is scheduled to hit dealerships in early 2013.
