SNEAK PEEK: 2015 Chevy Tahoe

SNEAK PEEK: 2015 Chevy Tahoe
ELIZABETH CITY, NC - The 2015 Chevy Tahoe gave us a sneak peek this week, as it was caught out for a test drive. Heavily covered with the symbol disguised, the SUV is not revealing too much about itself just yet. Despite everything being kept quiet, there are still numerous speculations about the SUV that should please customers.

With the exterior being covered, it's hard to get a good sneak peek at the 2015 Chevy Tahoe but it does appear to have a few minor changes. The barely visible lights now appear to be tiered, as the lights get slightly bigger on the bottom. As for the rest of the SUV's exterior, not much is expected to be adjusted.

The interior of the 2015 Tahoe is expected to have a few modifications, as there is talk that the new 285-hp, 4.3-liter direct-injected Ecotec3 V-6 will be an option on the vehicle; this would improve fuel economy, as well as be friendlier to the environment. The Ecotex3 engine will be a change from the V-8 power engine currently offered with the SUV.

The 2015 Chevy Tahoe is expected to debut in January of 2014, but you can still check out our Downloadable 2013 Chevy Tahoe Brochure! If you have any questions about the new Tahoe Inventory please call us at (252) 338-9100 with any questions!

New Apps and Websites Make Hitching a Ride Easy

New Apps and Websites Make Hitching a Ride Easy
ELIZABETH CITY, NC - With so much technology, life becomes easier with every passing day. One way in which life is improving is with how easily it is to arrange a carpool; there now exists new apps and websites that make hitching a ride, easy. You no longer have to know somebody that is going your way, you simply have to have access to the internet!

Carpooling has so many advantages; not just to you, but also to the environment. Sharing a ride can cut down on greenhouse gases, gas expenses, and if you live in a large city, it can cut down on road congestion. With so many advantages, it's easy to see why these apps and websites that make hitching a ride easy are on the rise.

For example, apps such as GroupMe, or websites such as Nuride.com, or Rideshare.com help arrange carpool opportunities. You no longer have to know the person who is going the same direction as you, since the site that you use arranges it for you. Now before you start to wonder how safe this can be, rest assured that this has already been thought of. To ensure the safety of both parties involved, these ride arranging applications have security protocols and some require payment to the driver before the carpool.

Chevrolet is taking a look at these apps and websites, and brainstorming about how they can implement  this into one of their vehicles. Chevy is currently discussing the possibility that future vehicles would come with an option connected device that would allow you to arrange a carpool from within your vehicle.  This connectivity would signal to the driver where a fellow carpooler is located, allowing them to pick up their rider.

Not interested in carpooling, but want a vehicle that is more environmentally friendly? Check out our selection of New Chevrolet Cars in Edenton or stop by our Used Car Dealership. We'd love to help you get into the car of your dreams, so come see us today! Perry Auto Group has two dealership locations to serve you better at 1005 W. Ehringhaus St, Elizabeth City, NC, 27909 or 1001 Halstead Blvd Elizabeth City, NC 27909. Give us a call  with any questions at (252) 338-9100.

2013 Chrysler Town & Country Number One in Minivan Segment for Quality

2013 Chrysler Town and Country Number One in Minivan Segment for Quality
ELIZABETH CITY, NC - Although the Town & Country is already the highest-awarded minivan on the market, it has recently achieved another prestigious honor. The 2013 Chrysler Town & Country was recently ranked number one by J.D. Power in the minivan segment for quality.

The 2013 Chrysler Town & Country was ranked number one in the minivan segment for quality, due to the results of the J.D. Power 2013 U.S. Initial Quality Study.  This study asks more than 83,0000 owners of the 2013 minivan about what issues they have about the vehicle, asking customers to identify problems with the vehicle's design, the way the van maneuvers, etc. This is not the first time that the 2013 Chrysler Town and Country has been ranked number one in the minivan segment, as it is actually the second time in three years that the minivan has earned this achievement.

The 2013 Chrysler Town & Country is a great vehicle with Standard Stow 'n Go Seats, a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine and a 62TE six-speed automatic transmission. The Town & Country also comes with a fuel economizer mode where the driver can maximize fuel efficiency. The 2013 Chrysler gets up to 25 mpg on the highway, 17 mpg in the city.

Jeep Awarded Edmunds Best Retained Value Award

Jeep Awarded Edmunds Best Retained Value Award
ELIZABETH CITY, NC- Edmunds has released their third annual Best Retained Value Awards, and Jeep as a brand along with several Jeep models, received top honors! With a projected 50.6% residual value after five years, Edmunds awarded Jeep the Best Retained Value Award for the non-luxury division.

Both the Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Grand Cherokee were cited by Edmunds as two popular models that played a role in Jeep receiving the Best Retained Value Award as a brand in the non-luxury division. The Wrangler and the Cherokee both deliver big residual value for their owners, and specifically, the Jeep Wrangler is especially vital since its elite level retained value is matched by very few vehicles in any other segment.

For the Best Retained Value Awards, Edmunds defined retained value as the projected private party resale value after five years in the market, assuming 15,000 miles are driven each year.

In addition to Jeep earning Edmunds Best Retained Value Award as a brand, several other Perry Auto Group brands also received notice! Ram received an honorable mention for best retained value in the non-luxury division. Both the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger were recognized in their respective categories, along with Chevy's Corvette, Camaro, and Silverado in their respective categories as well.

If you're looking to invest in a vehicle that's going to retain its value, then Perry Auto Group is your one stop shop!

100 Year History of the Chevrolet Bowtie Emblem

History of the Chevrolet Bowtie - 100 Year Old Emblem
ELIZABETH CITY, NC - Notably one of the most recognized emblems out there today, the Chevrolet Bowtie turns 100 years old this year. Yet with so many people familiar with the symbol, few know the inspiration behind it. So come along as we explore the 100 year history of the Chevrolet Bowtie emblem!

The history of the popular, 100 year old Chevrolet bowtie is a mysterious and hazy one. There are a few stories that circulate, each claiming to be the true tale, but no one is 100% positive about Chevy's true bowtie inspiration.

The first tale, one that is generally accepted to be true, is that the bowtie comes from a wallpaper design in a Parisian hotel. Apparently, Durant Chevrolet saw the wallpaper while visiting a hotel in Paris around 1908. He loved the wallpaper so much that he tore a piece off and kept it to show to all his friends and family, claiming that it would make a great nameplate for a car. Durant's daughter, Margery, claimed that her father was always searching for the perfect car nameplate.

Which leads to the second tale, which Margery affirms is the real story. In a book written by Margery Chevrolet, she claims that her father would regularly sketch potential nameplates at the dinner table. One night, he became particularly excited about a sketch, and Margery claims that this is the sketch that brought today's Chevrolet nameplate to life.

Durant's widow, Catherine, believes neither of these stories. She insists that Durant spotted the design in a 1912 newspaper while on vacation. While reading the newspaper in their hotel room one morning, Catherine claims that Durant saw the design and excitedly proclaimed that it would make a great emblem for Chevrolet.

Whichever story you believe, the Chevrolet bowtie has remained a well-known emblem since it's first appearance in 1913. One hundred years of established identity, the Chevy bowtie remains a trusted and well known symbol across the world.

SNEAK PREVIEW: 2015 Dodge Challenger Spotted with "Hellcat" V-8 Engine

2015 Dodge Challenger Spotted with 6.2-Liter Supercharged "Hellcat" V-8 Engine
ELIZABETH CITY, NC - The 2015 Dodge Challenger was recently spotted with a 6.2-Liter Supercharged "Hellcat" V-8 Engine. Although it's clearly being kept under wraps, the Challenger was easily spotted by an onlooker who snapped several photos to share with the internet community.

Although it is too early to say what the exact specifications will be for the vehicle, it is safe to say that the 2015 Dodge Challenger will have a 6.2-Liter V-8 engine known as the Hellcat. Although it was originally thought that The Hellcat would get around 640 hp, it is now estimated to produce between 560 and 580 hp. The actual Dodge Challenger appeared to also have an upgraded brake package. Upon closer inspection of the front end, it looks like the car's grille openings have been expanded. Although these are the only specs that can be speculated on at the moment, Dodge has hinted that they will be giving the Challenger a complete makeover.

Custom Camaro Revs Up DreamWorks Animation's 'Turbo'

Custom Camaro Revs Up DreamWorks Animation's 'Turbo'

ELIZABETH CITY, NC- Chevrolet is making an appearance on the big screen as a Custom Chevy Camaro revs up DreamWorks Animation's 'Turbo'!  According to General Motors, the animated vehicle is part of a film collaboration between Chevy and DreamWorks animation that aims to engage racing fans in the United States and select international markets.

The Custom Chevrolet Camaro that will cameo in this summer's DreamWorks film has appeared at numerous auto shows this year, exciting all that encountered it. While the concept Camaro was built specifically to promote the animated movie, it's like something out of a fantasy with a huge rear wing, a COPO hood, and supercharged V8 engine boasting more than 700 horsepower! The eye-catching 24-inch wheels complete the car's slick look.


The Custom Chevy Camaro in DreamWorks Animation's 'Turbo' is central to the film's plot. The Camaro shines on the big screen when Turbo the snail meets the custom muscle car, and the Chevy logo is also prominent in scenes that take place at the Indianapolis 500. This collaboration is historic since it is the first time that DreamWorks has worked with another company in this way.

As for the film, this high-speed 3D comedy features a little snail named Turbo who kicks into overdrive after an encounter with the Camaro. Family-focused and centered around racing, this movie is sure to be one that both the kids and parents will enjoy.


"Turbo is one of the most anticipated films of the summer, and we couldn't be more excited about this collaboration, which aligns perfectly with Chevrolet's renewed presence in INDYCAR," said Tim Mahoney, chief marketing officer, Chevrolet. "Millions of future drivers will be inspired by Turbo to realize their dreams both big and small."


All of the talk about this custom Chevy Camaro comes at an exciting time, as many have begun speculating about the unveiling of the 2014 Camaro. Take a look at what we know so far in our 2014 Camaro Spy Shots.

Redesigned 2014 Chevrolet Malibu

http://www.perryautogroup.com/chevrolet-dealer-serving-new-bern-nc
ELIZABETH CITY, NC- In an effort to compete better with competing midsize sedans, General Motors has revealed a Redesigned 2014 Chevrolet Malibu! The automaker felt the need to review their thoughts for the 2014 Malibu after the redesigned 2013 model struggled to keep up with competing sedans like the Camry, Fusion, Altima, and Accord.

The Redesigned 2014 Chevrolet Malibu gets a slight facelift with a bolder and sleeker front, improved powertrain and upgraded interior. At first look, you'll notice the Malibu's grille was lowered, although the rear styling remains pretty much the same. On the inside a reconfigured the center console is now longer, with enough storage space for two cell phones and back seat passengers will enjoy an additional 1.25 inches of knee room.  Overall chassis and suspension improvements have been made as well for the 2014 model.

Two new features are available on the 2014 Malibu's standard 2.5 liter, 4-cylinder engine: start-stop technology and variable valve lift control. With start-stop technology, drivers enjoy improved fuel economy since the feature allows the engine to turn off while the car is stopped and restart when the driver presses the accelerator.

Although the automaker spent much of 2012 relaunching the Malibu, GM North America President Mark Reuss says that GM must do it again for the 2014 model. "In this hotly competitive segment, we can't afford to stand still, ever," he said. "We have to move quickly, invest heavily and strive for continuous improvement and perfection."

While most vehicles receive notable upgrades every three years, GM  didn't hesitate to adjust quickly when they realized the vehicle was falling short, and decided to redesign the Malibu just one year after the initial redesign.

The updated 2014 Chevy Malibu produces 196 horsepower and 186 pound-feet torque, slightly down from the 2013's 197 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque. The LS, LT and LTZ trim options will continue to be available along with the Malibu Eco. A slight increase in fuel economy will be apparent with the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu: 35 mpg on the highway (an increase of 3%) and 23 mpg in the city (an increase of 5%).

An optional 2-liter turbocharged engine is available on the 2014 model, boasting 259 horsepower, the same as the previous turbo option, and 295 pound-feet of torque, a 14% improvement from its predecessor.

While pricing for the 2014 Chevy Malibu has not yet been released, the 2013 Malibu starts at $22, 805. For more information, stop by our Chevrolet Dealer Serving New Bern, NC, or take a look at our 2013 Chevy Malibu Brochure. We can also help you save with our Chevy Malibu Rebates!
