    More details about the 2013 Buick Encore have been released!

    Last updated 4 years ago

    When the 2013 Buick Encore arrives, it will feature the same quiet, comfortable, refined characteristics that define larger Buicks - The result of advanced acoustic technology and attention to detail. 

    The Encore will feature Buick's first use of Bose Active Noise Cancelation. Modeled after the popular headphones used by travelers on airplanes, this system uses small microphones to gather and analyze sound information that's then used to project "noise cancelling" sound waves through the cabin. 

    Unlike the headphones that fight noise over a broad spectrum of frequencies, the Encore's system selectively targets unwanted engine noise while allowing pleasant notes to pass through the cabin resulting in a luxurious and muted, engaging driving experience. 

    Buick and Bose engineers worked together to use the existing in-vehicle speakers, including a subwoofer designed to fit in the center of the vehicle's spare tire, maximizing space and reducing added weight. 

    Active noise cancelation in the Encore is always working, even if the audio system is powered off and comes standard on all Encore models. 

    QuietTuning features also include:

    • Acoustically treated headliner with a tuned gap between it and the high strength steel roof panel
    • Sound absorbing materials in the cabin, under the hood and in the wheel house liners
    • Aero-optimized outside mirrors
    • Acoustic-laminated windshield and thicker, 5mm side window glass
    • Foam baffles that insulate the opening of body structure cavities

    When the Encore arrives in early 2013 it is surely going to be amazing! For more information about the Encore or QuietTune, give us a call at 330-SWEENEY or visit www.sweeneybuick.com!

    • on Dealer Rater
    • I first corresponded with Ryan on the internet. He was very helpful and met me the day we visited the dealership. He introduced me to Gordon who was very friendly and proficient. We drove from Massillon to see the G6 we were interested in and Gordon went the extra mile to allow us to drive the car home that very day. We could not have... More

    Team Chevrolet Racing announces the new SS!

    Last updated 4 years ago

    Chevrolet recently opened a whole new chapter in its storied racing history by unveiling the eagerly anticipated 2013 NASCAR Chevrolet SS race car. Powered by Chevrolet's legendary small block V-8 engine, the rear-wheel drive performance sedan will be the newest entry in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. It will make its debut at SpeedWeek in Dayton, Fla. 

    The new Chevrolet SS is the next in a long line of famed nameplates that Chevrolet has campaigned in NASCAR, replacing the Impala which scored 151 wins from 1959-1964 and 2007-2012.

    The Chevrolet SS will be derivative of the award-winning glbal rear-wheel-drive architecture that spawns performance vehicles like the Camaro and Holden's upcoming VF Commodore. The limited production of the Chevrolet SS will be a 2014 model that will arrive in showrooms in late 2013. It is the first time in 17 years that Chevy is going to offer a rear-wheel-drive sedan for sale in the United States. 

    The SS (Super Sport) designation on high-performance models of some of its most enduring nameplates. The SS designation was first seen on the 1957 Corvette prototype race car built under the guidance of Zora Arkus-Duntov with the plan to enter the Le Mans 24 hour race. 

    To find out more about the limited release of the 2014 Chevrolet SS or any of Chevrolet's other performance vehicles give us a call at 330-SWEENEY or email SweeneySales@SweeneyCars.com!

    Take your first look at the 7th Generation Corvette!

    Last updated 4 years ago

    Well, maybe we exaggerated a little. General Motors still has the real 2014 Corvette under lock and key, but for those of you who have a PlayStation 3 you can be the very first to test drive it! Put your Gran Turismo 5 game into your console and you can download a 2014 Corvette Prototype to tear up the tracks. 

    Chevy and Polyphony Digital Inc. collaborated to provide an authentic driving experience for the Corvette prototype. During its creation, careful attention was paid to the tiniest details from creases and wrinkles in the camouflage used to disguise the new design to the actual driving characteristics that are currently being tuned and refined ahead of the highly anticipated January debut.

    Chris Perry, VP of Chevrolet Global Marketing had this to say about the recent promotion: "Until now, only the most skilled drivers on the Corvette team have been authorized to push the test prototypes to the limits on some of the most challenging track surfaces in the world. Through this unique collaboration with Gran Turismo, Chevrolet is able, for the first time, to give performance car enthusiasts access to such an exclusive driving experience."

    The 2014 Corvette is slated to be officially released on 1/13/13 and very little is known, but to find out what we do know about the 2014 Corvette, give us a call at 330-SWEENEY or email sweeneysales@sweeneycars.com

    One week later, Chevrolet announces more details about the 2014 Spark EV!

    Last updated 4 years ago

    Last week we told you about the all new Spark EV that will be hitting dealerships next summer. Today, only a week later Chevrolet announced some of the specifications and all we can say is wow! All of the technology, comfort and efficiency is going to be available for less than $25,000! 

    When the Spark EV goes on sale, it is expected to have among the best EV battery range in its segment and be the first electric vehicle to offer SAE Combo DC Fast Charging capability. This will enable the Spark EV to charge to 80% battery life in a mere 20 minutes. 

    Inside the Spark EV, critical vehicle functions are clearly displayed on one of the vehicles two reconfigurable, high resolution 7 inch color LCD screens. This includes a confidence gauge that shows the expected driving range based on your habits and other conditions. 

    Among the technology, the Spark EV will also offer MyLink standard. For those of you who aren't aware, MyLink brings smartphone-based infotainment - including apps such as BringGo Navigation, TuneIn internet radio, Pandora and Stitcher. Apple's Siri will also ride shotgun with you if you have an iPhone 4S or newer. 

    The Spark EV will be powered by an advanced electric motor and battery system. It consists of a GM-designed, coaxial drive unit and electric motor that together delivers 130 hp for instant acceleration; and a more than 20-kWh lithium ion battery is expected to provide among the best EV range performance in its segment. All of this is backed by GM's eight year, 100,000 mile warranty. 

    There are three ways to charge the all new Spark EV - DC Fast Charge, AC 240V and AC 120V. Using the 240V outlet, Spark recharges in less than seven hours. Owners can coordinate charging according to departure time or during off-peak electricity rates. You can also manage and monitor the vehicle remotely from your computer or smartphone using OnStar. 

    Take a look at these photos! For more information about the Spark EV or to find out about the Spark Mini Car (starting priced at under $13,000) give us a call at 330-SWEENEY or email SweeneySales@SweeneyCars.com
