J.D. Power and Associates have just released the results of their 2017 Vehicle Dependability study and we are pleased to report that four different Chevrolet models have come out on top of their respective segments. The Chevy Camaro has earned their top ranking in the Midsize Sporty Car segment for a remarkable five years in a row. For the second year in a row, the Silverado HD was named the most dependable Large Heavy Duty Pickup. The Chevy Sonic landed at the top of the list for the Small Car segment and the Chevy Tahoe leads all Large SUVs. This study, now in its 28th year, ranks three-year-old vehicles based on problems experienced during the past 12 months by their original owners. “We find buyers are increasingly avoiding models with poor reputations for dependability, so manufacturers can’t afford to let quality slip, particularly on their best sellers,” said Dave Sargent, vice president, global automotive at J.D. Power. “While many expensive and niche vehicles do have excellent quality, the fact is that most consumers are shopping in the high-volume mainstream segments. The good news is that consumers don’t have to spend a lot of money to get a very dependable vehicle.” Phillips Chevrolet in Frankfort and Lansing has Illinois’ Largest Chevy Inventory, including a great selection of these award-winning vehicles!

Every year collector car insurance and valuation company Hagerty compiles a list of the top ten current cars that expect to become tomorrow’s collector cars. “All ten have that ‘it’ factor that makes them stand out from the crowd,” said McKeel Hagerty, CEO of Hagerty. “In some cases it’s power, in some cases it’s innovation or drivability, but all of them have the qualities that define a future classic.” We are pleased to report that three Chevrolet have made the list, and all within the top five. The Chevy Camaro ZL1 came in at number three, and its high performance inspired Hagerty to call it an “instant collector’s item.” Right behind the ZL1 is the Chevy Colorado ZR2 with its suite of high-tech off-road features. The Corvette Grand Sport landed at number five thanks to its “striking visual reference to its ancestors: the 1963 and 1996 Grand Sports.” Phillips Chevrolet in Frankfort and Lansing has Illinois Largest Chevy Inventory, with a great selection of future classics currently in stock.

Chevrolet recently took the soon-to-arrive 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 to Germany to test its maximum velocity on the High Speed Oval at the Automotive Testing Papenburg GmBH proving ground and the results are impressive. To compensate for wind, testing engineers ran the ZL1 both clockwise and counter-clockwise on the facility’s 7.6-mile loop, and reached 202.3 mph in one direction and 193.3 mph in the other. These results were achieved courtesy of the Camaro ZL1’s 650-horsepower, supercharged LT4 engine and all-new 10-speed automatic transmission. “This test caps an impressive list of performance stats for the Camaro ZL1, which was designed to excel at everything,” said Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer. “It’s the most capable — and fastest —Camaro ever.” Phillips Chevrolet in Frankfort and Lansing has Illinois’ Largest Chevy Inventory, including a great selection of Camaros which the ZL1 will join any day now.

It’s been a very busy week here at Phillips Chevrolet and a lot of progress has been made on our construction project! As you can see, the upper level of our quick lube bays are fully constructed and getting a fresh coat of paint. Work continues underground as well, preparing the equipment that will allow our quick lube team to get to work in just a few more weeks.
