WHAT’S NEW ON THE LOT: SILVERADO, MALIBU AND CRUZE

October 24th, 2016 by

If you’re in the market for a new truck you’ll want to take a look at what is new on our lot. We have brand new 2016 Silverado 1500’s, the Chevy Malibu, and the Chevy Cruze. We offer a great selection at Banner Chevrolet and are here to answer any questions or help you setup a test drive!

Buying a truck is great if you need something to haul items for weekend projects, use it as a work truck or just to drive it around town as your daily driver. Cue the Chevy Silverado 1500. It’s also worth a look if you’re seeking a comfortable driving experience with a refined interior and class-leading V8 power. The 2016 Chevrolet Silverado looks like a brand-new truck, two years after it actually was redesigned. The new grille, headlights, hood and taillights break away from the handsome-but-bland styling of the past couple of years and give the new Silverado the double-take good looks it has needed. But there’s more under the skin in the form of an 8-speed automatic transmission, now available with the 5.3-liter V8 engine for the first time. Apple’s excellent new CarPlay iPhone integration is now available as well, along with a host of smaller refinements. Put it together, and the Silverado sharpens its edge against hot competitors like the Ram 1500, Toyota Tundra and of course its biggest cross-town rival, the Ford F-150.

If your teen will be getting their license this year and you’re looking at a vehicle for them, you may want to take a look at the Chevy Malibu. Technology in this vehicle is designed to keep parents aware of their kids driving habits and encourage safe driving for teens. The all-new 2016 Chevrolet Malibu has a system, called Teen Driver, that provides parents with a tool to help encourage safe driving habits for their kids, even when they are not in the car with them.

If you want a sporty, reliable option you may want to look at the Chevy Cruze. Already known to offer a big-car ride in a compact package, the Cruze is available as a hatchback, too. Both sedan and hatch have a 153-hp 1.4-liter turbo four with a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic. A 7.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is standard, as well as 4G LTE to make the car a Wi-Fi hotspot. The Cruze is great for long-distance trips with well-shaped front seats, a quiet interior, and a huge trunk.
