No, you're not reading it wrong. Bolt, just like Volt. Both share plug-in electric motors but the Bolt goes farther. Much farther. 200 miles. Better yet, the claim is it could only cost $30,000. It's only a concept today but is Chevrolet teasing a future Tesla Model III competitor? 

 

Introduced at this year's 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan, the Chevy Bolt EV Concept draws from the brand's experience producing the Volt and the Spark EV.

After lots of teasing and a small trickle of leaks, the 2016 Chevrolet Volt is here. Unveiled at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show (North American International Auto Show), the second generation "electric car with extended range" is sportier, sleeker, and more powerful than the outgoing Volt. It also goes farther on one charge than ever before; now 50 miles.

The answer is looking like "yes". General Motors is actively preparing "contingency plans" in case the automaker has to issue another round of recalls related to the Takata Airbag scandal. According to Reuters and Yahoo, a spokesman for the company acknowledged yesterday that the GMT-900 based Chevrolet Silverado, Tahoe, Suburban, GMC Sierra, Yukon, and Cadillac Escalade would be among the next vehicles recalled if the issue widened.

Voice Command Issues w/ iPod & Other Media

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service Bulletins Today, 05:53 PM
[2015 Chevrolet Silverado1500 LTZ 4WD Z71 Crew]   With regard to the Chevy MyLink...   Currently I am unable to get MyLink to follow voice commands with "My Media". This includes both my iPod and my Droid Maxx phone. I've tried connecting with both USB cord and via BlueTooth. Voice Commands seem to work fine with Phone and Radio commands, but I can't get MyLink to play any song, artist, album, etc. with My Media commands. It is as if MyLink cannot make the connection from what i'm saying to what is available to play even though my "music list has loaded". Both my iPod and my phone will play music just fine, I am just not able to utilize any of the voice commands. Anyone else had any similar problems? Any advice?

2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 Today, 05:15 PM
Does anyone or has anyone figuredo out if it possible to get the XM radio stations to show there station name on the favorite list? I have a 2014 Silverado with the 8" screen, and I have rename all the stations. For example XM8 shows up as XM8 instead of 80's on 8. I have a 2015 loaner for a couple of days and all the XM channels show up as their station name not the XM channel number. I remember my buddies 2011 XM radio automatically grabbing the station names as well. Thoughts?

E85?

Gen V Small Block Engine, Drivetrain, & Exhaust 10 Dec 2014
Purchased new 2015 with the 5.3, exactly how I wanted it except for flex fuel capability. Is there a way to run E85 with a tune or factory unlock? From what I have been reading it is just different tuning capabilities of the computer to adapt to it but correct me if I'm wrong. Or is the e85 not worth it? I like the increased performance and price difference between 87 or 91, even with the detrimental mileage results. Plus I like to support the industry, but that's a whole 'nother story! Thanks- Philbilly

2014+ Lowering / Drop Kits

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & Modifications 31 Oct 2013
I'm looking for the best way to lower the rear of my 2014 2WD 1500 about 1.5".  That will still give it about a 1.5" rake which should mean level when I'm towing.  I considered drop shackles but was reading about removing the rear lift plate that's between the axle and spring.   My question is can the leaf spring sit directly on the axle or is some sort of spacer / bushing required for proper alignment and isolation?
