The Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid is one of the most technologically impressive vehicles Chevrolet has ever made. At the core of the Chevrolet Volt’s capabilities lies a lithium ion battery made by Argonne National Laboratory of Chicago. For more than 40 years, scientists at this laboratory have made some of the most cutting-edge energy storage devices in the world. The Volt’s battery features one of Argonne’s coveted designs: cathode material technology. With this battery alone, the Volt can travel an EPA-estimated 35 miles. But because the Volt comes with a gasoline engine, it’s able to travel a total of 375 miles on one tank of gas.
To see how the new Chevrolet Volt works, come to City Chevrolet of San Diego for a test drive. Give us a call at (619) 817-8445 for more information about the Volt, and check out our website to see our selection of new and used Chevrolet vehicles.

The Chevrolet Impala has been an American classic for decades. Offering a spacious interior, a powerful engine, and solid value, the Chevrolet Impala has always been a favorite in the family-car segment. For 2014, Chevrolet completely redesigned the Impala from the ground up. With its staggering good looks and cutting-edge technology, it’s easy to admit that Chevrolet’s flagship sedan was worth the wait.
Ergonomic, Upscale Interior
One of the most impressive things about the Chevrolet Impala’s interior is how well the dashboard is organized. For 2014, the Impala’s button cluster has even been moved forward and slanted towards the driver. To complement the Impala’s ergonomic interior, Chevrolet added a stunning two-tone color scheme. The interior also features chrome and wood accents to create a decidedly upscale feel.
Three Powerful, Fuel-Sipping Engine Choices
The standard engine on the 2014 Chevrolet Impala is a four-cylinder that makes 195 horsepower and achieves 31 mpg on the highway. There’s an optional mild-hybrid engine that produces 182 horsepower and earns 35 mpg if you want a more fuel-efficient ride. If you want to go back to the Impala’s performance roots opt for the 303-horsepower 3.6-liter V6.
Smart Safety Features
Because the 2014 Chevrolet Impala is a family vehicle first and foremost, Chevrolet decided to offer it with a host of active safety features. The Safety package comes with a Forward Collision Alert, which alerts the driver if a potential collision is detected so that the driver can avoid it, and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert system, which warns you of oncoming traffic when you are backing out in a parking lot.
The all-new Chevrolet Impala will be at City Chevrolet of San Diego shortly. If you have any questions about the Chevy Impala, call our dealership at (619) 817-8445. We’ve been serving San Diego for 75 years, and are happy to show you the next-generation Impala.

Chevrolet makes sedans that are distinct from the run-of-the-mill family vehicle. Chevrolet sedans such as the Malibu and the Impala place an emphasis on performance, style, safety, and value that you won’t find anywhere else. If you’re in the market for a family sedan, read on to compare the Chevrolet Impala and Malibu.
If you want a family sedan that is as stylish as it is safe, you’ll love the Chevrolet Impala. For a more chiseled, sporty style, check out the new Chevrolet Malibu. Either way, you are sure to turn heads when you drive one of these handsome Chevy sedans.
The technology in the Chevrolet Impala is very straightforward, making it a perfect vehicle for drivers that don’t want the latest gadgets. The most notable option is an eight-speaker Bose premium stereo, which you won’t find in the Malibu. The Chevrolet MyLink, standard on some Malibu trim levels, lets you link up with your smartphone so that you can use apps like Pandora Internet radio without taking your hands off the wheel.
Offering a segment-exclusive front bench seat, the Chevrolet Impala is one of the only sedans you’ll be able to find with six-passenger seating. Furthermore, it features an 18.6 cubic-foot trunk that can expand even further when you fold the rear seats down. The Chevrolet Malibu comes close with a 16.3 cubic-foot trunk. The Chevy Malibu offers comparable amounts of headroom. However, the Impala offers even more space for those of you looking for even more legroom.
A 300-horsepower V6 is your only option in the Chevy Impala, which delivers forceful yet smooth acceleration and 30 mpg on the highway thanks to its six-speed automatic. The Chevrolet Malibu offers three powertrains: a 182-horsepower mild-hybrid engine that earns 37 mpg on the highway, a 197-horsepower engine that earns 34 mpg on the highway, and a 259-horsepower turbocharged engine that earns 30 mpg on the highway.
To compare what each of these Chevrolet sedans has to offer, come to City Chevrolet of San Diego. For 75 years we have provided families in San Diego with an excellent selection of new and used vehicles. Check out our inventory online, and call us if you have any questions at (619) 817-8445.

The new 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel, delivers an industry best EPA-estimated 46 MPG on the highway – better than any non-hybrid passenger car in America. It will be available in certain cities this spring and nationwide and in Canada in early fall.
Equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission, the latest addition to the Cruze powertrain family has an estimated range of 700 highway miles on one tank of diesel fuel based on the EPA highway estimate and the vehicle’s fuel tank capacity. That’s about 10 hours of highway driving.
“We harnessed generations of diesel expertise to adapt our world-class global engine for the North American market,” said Gary Altman, chief engineer, Chevrolet Cruze Diesel. “The Cruze Diesel is the best diesel passenger car out there. Chevrolet is redefining the meaning of great fuel economy with this car.”
With a starting price of $25,695, including an $810 destination charge, the Chevrolet Cruze Diesel is a better value than a similarly equipped VW Jetta TDI automatic. Compared with Jetta, the Cruze Diesel offers standard equipment including the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system, larger 17-inch alloy wheels, leather-appointed seating, a longer five-year 100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty, and a two-year maintenance plan.
Cruze Diesel also beats its rivals in performance with a segment-leading estimated 148 horsepower (110 kW) and estimated 258 lb-ft of torque (350 Nm), and can go 0-60 in about 8.6 seconds. Its advanced 2.0L turbo-diesel engine has an overboost feature capable of increasing torque to an estimated 280 lb-ft (380 Nm) for short bursts of stronger acceleration when needed, such as entering freeway traffic.
Cruze Diesel is powered by the cleanest diesel passenger car engine produced by General Motors. The vehicle generates 90 percent less Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) and particulate emissions when compared to previous-generation diesels. Chevrolet has sold more than 2 million Cruze models globally since it was launched in mid-2010. More than 33,000 of those were diesel powered.

SUVs are great for your San Diego family, and pickup trucks are excellent for their rugged capabilities and added power. So, if you need both, how are you supposed to decide between the two? With the Chevrolet Avalanche, you don’t have to decide. You’ll find it has everything you want in an SUV and a pick-up truck. Read on to see how the new Chevrolet Avalanche gives you the best qualities of a pickup and an SUV.
SUV Ride Comfort
The suspension of the new Avalanche was tuned for SUV-like ride comfort. This means when you’re driving around town, you won’t feel like you’re in a truck. Instead, you’ll enjoy a smooth ride that still delivers responsive handling in spite of its size.
SUV Seating Capacity
Unlike even the largest pickup trucks, the 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche can seat up to six passengers with the optional front-seat seating arrangement. And because it features interior proportions and amenities you would expect on a full-size SUV, the Chevrolet Avalanche is a great vehicle for families.
Pickup Truck Bed
For when you need to haul cargo, this quality vehicle offers the versatility of a pickup truck (thanks to its five-foot-three truck bed). This bed comes with a removable bed cover that lets you keep your belongings safe and dry, just like they would be inside of an SUV. If you have something really long that you need to fit into the truck bed, the Chevy Avalanche’s midgate configuration can open to expose an eight-foot loading floor that goes from the backseat of the Avalanche to the liftgate.
Pickup Truck Towing
If you have a boat or a trailer and you thought you needed to get a traditional pickup truck to carry it, think again. The Chevrolet Avalanche is able to tow up to 8,100 pounds, thanks in part to its 5.3-liter V8 engine that delivers 320 horsepower.
To see how the 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche effortlessly blends SUV comfort and capacity with pickup truck towing and storage capabilities, come to City Chevrolet today. To see how many Avalanche models we have in our lineup, visit our website. And for more information, call us at (619) 817-8445.
