Want an Early Present? Check Out the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Concept

Since a lot of us are parents and relatives of young children, the team here at Rogers Auto Group is pretty familiar with that old-time tradition of allowing the kids a chance to open one small gift the night before the Holiday officially begins. As Chevy truck fans, the team here got a lot of early presents this year with all the news and concepts that came out of November’s venerated LA Auto show. What was our favorite early present? Well it had to be the unveiling of the Chevy Colorado ZR2 Diesel Concept. This truck is a sugarplum with wheels dancing in our head! Its 2.8-liter Duramax turbo-diesel unleashes out an awesome 181 horsepower. But that doesn’t cover all its bells and whistles. Check out the video below to learn more!

It might be a few more seasons before this impressive feat of Chevy engineering is crossed off our Wish List and into production lines, but no worries. Our expansive showroom at 2720 South Michigan in the heart of Chicago is chock full of new Chevy trucks to choose from, like the 2015 Chevy Silverado 3500HD. Our vast inventory of new and used Chevy’s wows visitors every day, so visit us this Holiday season to see how we can help you ride into the new year with performance and style!

GMC Considers Adding More Hybrids and Diesels

Here at Rogers Auto Group, people in search of a new SUV or truck know they can find what they are looking for, and in a wide array of trims and options. That means different available technology or luxury if you choose the Denali option on most models. It also means different fuel options, and GMC is looking to see how expansive it can get with those offerings.

As we move into an era where the demand for capable trucks and SUVs like those found in the new GMC lineup remains high, but the desire for vehicles that provide ample fuel economy has also risen, the automaker wants to be ahead of the curve.

To prepare, GMC has already released models that use three kinds of alternatives: hybrids, diesel, and compressed natural gas. Now, they are thinking they could add more, and improve upon what’s already been done.

Currently, the collection of Sierra vehicles has either a hybrid, diesel or compressed natural gas option. It is joined by the Yukon as a hybrid, and Savana van in the diesel and compressed natural gas segments. To take things to the next level, perhaps we’ll see other vehicles get the same treatment. Maybe a new model entirely? There are plenty of possibilities, and all of them are exciting.

We’ll keep checking in on the news and let you know on our blog if there are any developments on the fuel alternative front. In the meantime, feel free to stop in and see us here in our Chicago, IL showroom. We’d be happy to answer any questions you might have, and arrange test drives.
