Find the Vehicle for you

Find the Best Type of Vehicle for You

So you’re looking for your next vehicle and you have no idea where to start. Don’t stress! The first thing you want to do is pick the best type of vehicle that suits your particular needs…

Sedans: Although there is a lot of variety amongst the sedan segment, sedans are generally known for being the most balanced vehicles. If you want it all—interior space, efficiency, safety, technology—get a sedan.

Trucks: This one is obvious, right? But you should know that trucks are much more than hauling and towing machines. They can be just as comfortable and accommodating as a sedan.

Crossovers: Think of crossovers as a cross between an SUV and a sedan. Bigger than a sedan and smaller than a full-size SUV, crossovers are often just as balanced as sedans but with more interior space and potentially more strength.

SUVs: If you like lots of interior space and the potential for lots of power, an SUV is the right kind of vehicle for you. There is a lot of variety in the SUV segment.

Compacts: People who do a lot of commuting and/or live in the city often appreciate the unique benefits of a compact vehicle. They get unbelievable gas mileage and are very easy to park and maneuver around tight city streets.

Now once you’ve decided the best type of vehicle for you, you can move on to bigger and better questions!

Chevy Ad Honoring Prince Hits Newspapers Across the Country

Seven-time Grammy Award winner Prince recently passed away. Adored across the board by fans, fellow musicians, and critics alike, Prince was what some have even called the “Mozart of pop music.”

His forays into avant garde jazz notwithstanding, Prince knew how craft a pop hook. And one of the best hooks he ever wrote was the eponymous opening line in the 1982 hit “Little Red Corvette.” Hear that tune, and you’d be humming that line for days.

To honor the artist, Chevrolet placed a full-page ad in six major newspapers across the country. The Chevy ad honoring Prince was simple, just the rear view of a red split-window Corvette and the text, “Baby, That Was Much Too Fast/ 1958-2016,” dates commemorating Prince’s life.

Of course, “Little Red Corvette” isn’t the only time a Chevrolet has been referenced in a song. Don McLean drove his Chevy to the levee in “American Pie.” Motley Crue traded their ‘65 Chevy for illegal drugs in the song “Dr. Feelgood.” In “Crocodile Rock,” Elton John reminisces about the good ol’ days when “rock was young” and he had an “Old Gold Chevy.” But, perhaps in no other song does a Chevrolet figure so prominently as in “Little Red Corvette.”
