Chevy Impala Midnight Edition Coming Soon

It was recently announced that the Chevy Impala Midnight Edition officially headed to production! The special blacked-out Impala is based off of a concept that was shown early last year at the 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

The special edition will include a completely blacked-out interior and exterior, 19-inch aluminum wheels with black accents, black grille, black Chevy emblem, pedals and rear spoiler.

The new Midnight package will be available on the 1LT, 2LT and LTZ trim levels of the 2016 Impala and only the 2LT of the 2015 model. The package will range in price from $995 to $1,595. It will also be available with two engine options: a standard 2.5-liter iVLC or the 3.6-liter V6 engine for slightly more power.

The Midnight Edition will soon be available this summer! If you’re interested in experiencing the new special edition Impala for yourself come visit us at Bill Walsh Chevrolet.

Chevrolet Cranks up Driving Dynamics for Sixth-Generation Camaro

We’re getting unbearably close to May 16, the day when the sixth-generation Camaro will finally be unveiled at Belle Isle Park in Detroit. Chevrolet has even lined up an entire special event, all anchored around the big reveal, which will be the culmination of the day. Fortunately, we expect the new Camaro to really live up to all that hype—especially after all the new design and performance tweaks we’ve seen.

For example, the Camaro now features a 28% more rigid body and the awesome new Drive Mode Selector. The extra tight body gives the Camaro the most advanced driving dynamics ever, with incredible steering and suspension systems resulting in the best handling possible. The Drive Mode Selector, for its part, gives you options between Snow/Ice, Tour, Sport, and Track modes—although the Track mode is only available on SS models.

“We wanted to build on the flexibility of the current Camaro ZL1, which is great for grand touring, commuting, the drag strip and track days,” said Aaron Link, Camaro lead development engineer. “The new Camaro will be even more adaptable, with up to eight vehicle attributes adjusted to fit a driver’s preference.”

Come see us here at Bill Walsh Chevrolet to learn more about the Camaro and its updated technologies and design today.

48 MPG: 2016 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid’s Fuel Efficiency

At the recent New York Auto Show, Chevrolet showed off the 2016 Malibu Hybrid. This hybrid will borrow some technology from the all-new Volt to make it the most efficient Malibu ever. The Malibu Hybrid’s fuel efficiency is expected to reach 48 mpg city—the highest in the segment.

“Fuel efficiency is important to our customers, especially in the midsize segment and with an estimated 48 mpg city rating, the Malibu Hybrid delivers,” said GM President Dan Ammann in a statement ahead of the Malibu’s reveal.

This efficiency is achieved with a new 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine paired with a two-motor drive unit based on what is found in the 2016 Chevrolet Volt. In total, the engine and motors give the Malibu Hybrid 182 horsepower. Powering the hybrid system is a 1.5 kWh lithium-ion battery. This will be able to drive the Malibu hybrid on electricity alone at speeds up to 55 mph.

The 2016 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid will be arriving on showroom floors in spring 2016 and will be built here in the United States at the Fairfax Assembly plant in Kansas City, Kansas.
