GM Invests $500M in Lyft For Autonomous Taxis

The future of ride-sharing and car ownership is in the works.

General Motors Partners with Lyft - Self-Driving Cars

 

Just before Christmas 2015, news spread that Ford had partnered with Google to build self driving cars to create a new ride-sharing business; Google will take advantage of Ford’s experience with actually manufacturing cars, and they will both work to perfect the autonomous technology.

GM’s similar venture, announced at the very start of 2016, is slightly different. They’ve just given the ride-sharing company, Lyft, a half billion dollars for the research and development of self-driving cars to establish “a long-term strategic alliance to create an integrated network of on-demand autonomous vehicles in the U.S.”

Of course, nothing is going to change overnight, and no one has really given an actual time frame in which this technology will actually be real. In the meantime, General Motors is taking advantage of the partnership by becoming a preferred provider of short-term use vehicles through rental hubs for Lyft drivers in various cities throughout the U.S. These drivers and customers will, as a result, have access to GM’s wide portfolio of cars and OnStar services (like Wi-Fi), creating richer ride-sharing experiences for drivers and passengers. GM and Lyft also aim to provide each other’s customers with personalized mobility services and experiences through their respective channels.

Now the question is when will this technology actually become a reality for the general public?

Share Your Thoughts!

1977 Chevrolet Camaro advertisement: Self-driving cars are definitely an interesting idea and will be a huge shift for American culture. But there’s different sides to it. The upside: You don’t have to pay attention! You can play on your phone all you want and you’ll just be shuttled to wherever you need to go. The safety factor as far as drunk, reckless, and distracted driving is a huge deal and would save a lot of people’s lives on the road. Time spent at the DMV will be significantly reduced if we’re not required to have a drivers license! Downside? There are a lot of people out there that do love driving. Cars are a huge part of American culture and if they will all be able to drive themselves, would it kill that part of our identity? (We realize how morbid that sounds.)

Jeff Gordon Chevrolet Wins GM Dealer of the Year for 2014

Four time NASCAR Champion, Jeff Gordon’s, Chevy Dealership in Wilmington, NC just learned that it was named GM Dealer of the Year – one of 12 Chevy dealerships in the southeast U.S. region. To qualify for this award, a dealership must excel in customer satisfaction, essential brand elements, and parts loyalty across all departments.

An employee luncheon with brief update from the General Manager is a monthly event at Jeff Gordon Chevy, but it was decided that this time we should kick it up a notch to celebrate. With some help from Party Suppliers of Wilmington, Julia’s Florist, Middle of the Island (MOI) Catering Co., and Cupcakes by Karen, the employees at Jeff Gordon Chevy were definitely treated to probably the fanciest luncheons in the history of the dealership. Of course, none of it would be possible without our Events Coordinator, Leacy Sauer along with some additional help from Kim Dale and Karen Benton.

In addition to the honorable Dealer of the Year award, Jeff Gordon Chevrolet also won the Elite Department Award from Hendrick for New Vehicle Sales, Service, Parts, and Collision departments. Pre-owned sales associate, Chris Whitehurst, and Collision Center assistant manager, Kevin Kutz, were both presented the Chairman’s Club awards as well.

And lastly, Stacee Marcum and Dan Jacobs, both service advisers were nominated and awarded for our in-house Going the Extra Mile Award. The award is presented to recognize dealership employees who go above and beyond their job description to make this a better place for both fellow employees and customers. Recently, a customer of ours found herself suffering from a medical emergency while dropping her car in the service lane. It was very close to closing time for our service department and the customer was forced to wait for her husband who was an hour away. Dan and Stacee stayed by her side until he was able to reach the dealership. Absolutely deserving of that award, they each got a $50 Gift Card to the Circa Restaurant Group – YUM!

Here are some shots from the event, all taken by our amazing photographer, Kristen Corley.

All-New 2016 Chevy Malibu Will Make Your Teenager Hate You

New Nanny System called “Teen Driver” Helps Keep An Eye On Kids Behind the Wheel

2016 Chevrolet Malibu Teaser PhotoIf you haven’t heard yet, Chevrolet plans to unveil the all-new 2016 Malibu at the 2015 New York International Auto Show this April. Chevrolet has teased a couple of photos, and just let out another piece of information that parents, or even spouses who don’t trust their significant others’ driving skills, will absolutely love.

It’s a new nanny system called “Teen Driver” and what it does is what some parents might call a God-send. We surely all remember being teenagers and finally getting the rite of passage of being able to drive — Finally! Most of us also didn’t have a car as soon as we got our license… So what did we do? Borrow Mom or Dad’s car.. of course! What we did, where we went, was none of your parent’s business as long as we were behind the wheel, and you did eventually come home with the groceries you were asked to get while you were out.

Well now we’re all grown up and have, or we’re about to have, teens getting ready to drive – Now we know why our parents were so anxious. After being in their shoes, you KNOW how irresponsible some teen drivers can be, especially with the technology available that causes distractions that we never even had. For a number of reasons, teens are the cause of a great percentage of traffic accidents. (You can read more about that from the CDC here.) So, wouldn’t it be nice if there was a way we could tell how our teen is driving when you’re not in the passenger’s seat?

Yes. It would. We think, anyway. “Teen Driver” on the new 2016 Malibu will be the revolutionary technology tool to put your mind and heart at ease allowing you to promote safe driving habits. Here are some of the things you’ll be able to control with this new system:

  • While most parents would probably love to limit the highest speed of the vehicle, the system doesn’t do exactly that, but will warn a teen visually or audibly when he/she is traveling over preset speeds. So for example, if you live in a town where the max speed is 55 MPH, you can set an audio or visual warning when that speed is exceeded to tell the teen to slow down.
  • To ensure that people are using seatbelts, you could tell the system to mute the audio of the radio, or devices paired with the car until both driver and passenger fasten up.
  • You can set a limit on how loud your teen can blast the radio, because we all know how they love doing that.
  • There is also a report card function that saves data from when your brand new Chevy was in your teen’s possession including: max speed, how many miles they drove, and how many times the active safety features (rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision alert, etc.) were engaged.

The Teen Driver feature will be standard on the 2016 Malibu’s Premier trim and optional on LT models if equipped with the Convenience Package and up-level radio. To enable the feature, the parent simply sets a PIN through the Chevrolet MyLink system, which allows you to register your teen’s key fob (or, the one that they primarily use).

What do you think?

As we mentioned briefly before, we think that this is an absolutely awesome bit of technology that would help both put parents of new drivers at ease when giving their kids a little bit more freedom on the road, and at the same time, help teens practice safe-driving. We hope it does make a difference and lessens the risk of accidents caused by inexperienced drivers and we’re excited to see what other models will adopt this same feature on Chevrolet’s lineup. What do you think about it? Share your thoughts and opinions by leaving a comment below! We’d also love to hear how you implement (or have implemented) safe driving techniques & practices for your teens.

The redesigned mid-sized sedan is expected to arrive at Jeff Gordon Chevrolet in Wilmington, North Carolina, in the last quarter of 2015.

The 2016 Chevrolet Equinox Gets a New Look

New Equinox Design Features Refreshed Body Style, Interior for 2016 Year-Model

2016-Chevrolet-Equinox-Patriot-Blue-Jeff-Gordon-Chevrolet-Wilmington-NCIt’s been a few years since the Chevy Equinox has gotten an updated look – And although we we didn’t think anything was wrong with the last design, we definitely think that this new Equinox is looking pretty good! Keep reading to see what changes they’ve made, technology, safety, and more!

What’s Different on the 2016 Equinox

The greatest differences are on the front and the rear exterior. The front end presents a more refined look with a chrome-accented dual-port grille (very similar to the new 2015 Cruze) and restyled headlamps and LED fog lamps. New 17″ and 18″ wheels are available to make it pop!

2016-Chevrolet-Equinox-suv-updates-Front-Jeff-Gordon-Chevrolet-Wilmington-NC

On the back side, the dual-element tail lamps are more sculpted, and boxier, if you will. So they made the tailpipes rectangular to go with that updated, modern flow. And of course, they added chrome accents on the back side too.

2016-Chevrolet-Equinox-suv-updates-Rear

The interior, for the most part, is very similar. Trim levels offering cloth seating will now be dressed with premium cloth, which sounds fancy. They also added a “Saddle Up” interior color for some nice, luxurious contrast. The gear shifter has chrome on accents on it as well, with the gear selector button now on top of the shifter for easier operation.

Technology

2016-Chevrolet-Equinox-Technology-4G-LTE-WiFiAs every new Chevrolet model, the 2016 Equinox will come standard with Onstar’s awesome 4G LTE WiFi capabilities.

Click here to learn more about the WiFi Hotspot.

The 2016 Equinox will also feature Siri® Eyes Free – allowing you to keep your eyes on the road and use steering wheel controls and voice command to use your iPhone safely while you drive!

The Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system will also come with the available Onstar Turn-by-Turn Navigation so you can get to your destination effortlessly with the most up-to-date routes.

Safety

The 2016 Equinox will also offer available safety features to keep you and your family safe on the road. The 2016 Equinox surrounds you with a variety of advanced safety features including six air bags, a steel safety cage and the LATCH (Lower Anchors and Top Tethers for Children) system.

And of course, Onstar has your back! Automatic Crash Response with Onstar uses built-in sensors to automatically alert an OnStar Advisor, who is immediately connected into your Equinox to see if you need help. Even if you don’t respond, an OnStar Advisor can use GPS technology to pinpoint your exact location and request that emergency help be sent immediately.

The 2016 Chevrolet Equinox is expected to arrive at Jeff Gordon’s dealership in Wilmington, North Carolina in late fall. For more updates on the refreshed Equinox and it’s arrival to Jeff Gordon Chevy, fill out the contact form below! For now, feel free to check out our 2015 Equinox inventory!
