Chevrolet Safety Technologies Give Owners a Backup Plan

Rear vision camera, rear cross traffic alert the brains behind every great vehicle

DETROIT – Every year, millions of trash cans, lawn mowers, lamp posts and even other vehicles pay the price for the collective lack of eyes in the backs of our heads.

Two crash-avoidance technologies available on selected Chevrolet vehicles – a rear vision camera and rear cross traffic alert – are giving customers an extra set of “eyes” so they have the backup plan they need.

Most 2015 Chevrolet models are available with a rear vision camera that – when combined with driver diligence and rearview and side mirrors, help improve visibility and reduce the potential for damage to vehicles, belongings and landscaping. The camera also shows detection displays for rear parking assist and rear cross traffic alert system in models equipped with these technologies.

When a driver shifts into Reverse, the camera provides a view of the scene directly behind the vehicle on the center stack (or in some models, the inside rearview mirror) display to help them avoid crashing into objects behind the vehicle during low-speed maneuvering.

After shifting out of Reverse, the image is removed if the vehicle speed exceeds 5 mph, or several seconds expire, or radio buttons are pressed, whichever comes first.

“Rear vision cameras have been a huge help to drivers, but they are never a substitute for conducting an actual assessment of what’s around or behind the vehicle, and using the mirrors,” said Raymond Kiefer, General Motors Active Safety Technical Fellow.

Owners can help ensure this technology does its job with regular car washes that help keep the rear vision camera located in the rear of the vehicle free of dirt, mud, ice and other substances.

An AutoTrader.com survey also showed these features rank high by the buying public.

“The majority of AutoTrader.com shoppers agree that the most important technology feature in their cars is a rearview camera,” said Michelle Krebs, AutoTrader.com senior analyst. “Not only do they want this feature, they expect it to be a standard feature in new or used vehicles on dealer lots.”

For the 2015 model year, the Chevrolet Sonic, Cruze, Volt, Malibu, Impala, SS, Camaro, Corvette, Captiva, Equinox, Traverse, Colorado, Express, Silverado, Tahoe and Suburban are available with a rear vision camera.

Rear cross traffic alert

Rear cross traffic alert is a very forward-thinking technology for anyone who has ever tried to back out of a parking spot or driveway with side obstructions.

It works when the vehicle is in Reverse, and uses one left and one right short-range radar that monitor up to 65 feet to the left and right. When the system senses approaching left or right cross traffic, red flashing triangles with left or right pointing arrows are shown in the rear vision camera screen and three low-pitched beeps sound.

For owners of Chevrolet models equipped with the available Safety Alert Seat, when activated, the seat will pulse on the side of the source of the threat, meaning a vehicle approaching from the right will trigger a vibration on the right side of the seat.

“Our owners have rated this rear cross traffic alert technology very high,” said Kiefer. “They enjoy having technology that alerts them to situations that are difficult to see, particularly if the have range-of-motion issues.”

Rear cross traffic alert is offered on the 2015 Cruze, Impala, SS, Traverse, Tahoe and Suburban.

Founded in 1911 in Detroit, Chevrolet is now one of the world’s largest car brands, doing business in more than 140 countries and selling more than 4.8 million cars and trucks a year. Chevrolet provides customers with fuel-efficient vehicles that feature engaging performance, design that makes the heart beat, passive and active safety features and easy-to-use technology, all at a value.

Motor Trend Truck of the Year is the 2015 Colorado

Over the past few years full-size trucks got bigger and bigger and midsize trucks began to vanish.  The Chevrolet Colorado went out of production for three years, until recently when it made its triumphant return, completely redone and better than ever.

The Chevrolet Colorado was definitely not the largest truck in competition for the 2015 Motor Trend Truck of the Year, but it turned out to be the best in more of the Motor Trend judging categories than anything else.

2015-truck-of-the-year-promoFor many, midsize pickups appeal to a more modest sense of size, and when the Colorado reappeared it trounced the Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier in a comparison test, clearly marking itself as a segment leader.  No other vehicle tested stands out as much as the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado.

Motor Trend editors praised the Colorado test models for not only out-performing the other Truck of the Year contenders, but for doing so while being the least expensive truck tested.  In fact, the Colorado was three times less than the Ford F-450 tested.  The lower price never left the editors wanting for more, proving good things do come in small packages.

Next-Gen Chevy Volt

Chevrolet has made the charging system in the next-generation Volt even easier for customers to recharge the battery – and to check the charge status. The next-generation Volt debuts in January at the North American International Auto Show. Owners will now be able to set their charging preferences exclusively for their “home” charging location and the vehicle will automatically adjust to that setting when it is at that location.

Chevrolet Chaparral Vision Gran Turismo Concept Coming Soon

When Chevrolet teased a new Vision Gran Turismo concept on its Chevrolet Corvette Facebook page, we assumed the topless concept car was Corvette-based. Now, the automaker has revealed that its entry in the Vision GT series will be the Chevrolet Chaparral Vision Gran Turismo Concept.

mor1“Jim Hall and Chaparral blended the art of racing with science in an unprecedented way, changing the sport forever and inspiring a new generation to experiment with aerodynamics and unconventional materials,” said Mark Reuss, GM executive vice president, Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain, in a release. “His race cars were four-wheeled physics projects that proved innovation — and a strong Chevy race engine — could drive you to the winner’s circle.” Jim Hall and Hap Sharp founded Chaparral Cars in 1962 and turned the racing world upside down with a combination of wild aerodynamics and Chevrolet engines.

Chaparral Cars and Chevrolet Research and Development worked to develop composite monocoque chassis, lightweight alloy powertrain pieces, racing automatic transmissions, and active aerodynamics. The 1966 Chaparral 2E featured a large wing that produced as much as 240 pounds of downforce at 100 mph. The Chaparral 2E and 2F were successful in the 1966 and 1967 race seasons, respectively. By 1970, the big-block V-8-powered Chaparral 2J had reached a high point of aerodynamic downforce. A pair of fans sucked air from underneath the car, creating suction and more downforce.
