2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Says Goodbye Bowtie and Hello Flowtie! - 03/06/2014
After continuous testing, the Chevy team examined the Camaro Z/28 inside and out looking for ways to improve track performance. Once one of the engineers noticed the Chevy Bowtie's placement on the grille, an immediate big lightbulb went off. The Bowtie was displacing air away from the radiator, affecting the cooling of the engine. Removing the Bowtie itself was never an option, but with a little creativity came the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Said Goodbye Bowtie and Hello Flowtie! The Flowtie is just the chrome outline of the traditional Bowtie, which leaves the center open and allows for three additional cubic meters of air into the engine per minute. This allows for the engine coolant and oil temperatures to drop by 2 degrees, improving the Camaro's overall track performance!

Chevy Sinkhole Survivor Drives into the National Corvette Museum - 03/04/2014
A Chevy sinkhole survivor drives into the National Corvette Museum with minimal damage despite its long free fall into the 30-foot deep sinkhole. The only major damage is cosmetic- the carbon fiber running boards are shattered- and the rest is simply minor paint damage and a crack in the windshield. A split in the oil-supply line for the 6.2L LS9 V-8 engine would need to be fixed, in which case the car would then be able to drive as far as Detroit!
The other vehicle extracted from the sinkhole was a 1993 40th anniversary model Corvette. There was a great deal of cosmetic damage to the hood, fenders, and window glass. However, there was only minimal mechanical damage. According to John Spencer, manufacturing integration manager for Corvette, "the 40th Anniversary looks much worse than it really is" and the Corvette "is definitely salvageable". Within the next 60 days, the team plans to retrieve the remaining vehicles from the hole. All of the recovered cars will be sent to the Mechanical Assembly facility. This small speciality shop is based in Warren, Michigan and technicians there will decide the best restoration approach.

Chevrolet's Latest Oscar "Filmmaker" Ad - 03/03/2014
This short film entitled "Masterpiece" won Chevy's contest for independent filmmakers. South Korean independent filmmaker, Jude Chun, was chosen over the other 72 submissions from around the world. Masterpiece is about young filmmakers using their imaginations to create a short film of their own. In case you missed it, you can check it out here:
Chevrolet's CMO, Tim Mahoney, stated that the company is not looking to "hang the brand from one tentpole after another". Chevrolet hitting the big events such as the Olympics, the Super Bowl, and now the Oscars are all simply under the same strategy of continuously building momentum about the brand. Instead of enforcing the "buying" of Chevy vehicles, they are looking to reach people based on factors such as "this vehicle will be bought by this type of person, with these media habits". The ultimate goal for Chevrolet is to continue their success by basing marketing on consistency and connecting with different audiences through various sources of media.

"Flying Car Logic" on the 2014 Camaro Z/28 - 02/27/2014
The easiest statement to explain this system would be without "Flying car logic", tires would lose traction. Losing traction would require a reduction in torque in order to fully restore it. "Flying car logic" is combined with the Z/28's standard Performance Traction Management system (PTM) integrated with the chassis mode selection, Traction Control and Active Handling Systems. Each of these systems are specifically tuned in the Z/28 to obtain the best possible track performance and consistency. Even if for a split second the tires lose contact with the ground, the car's full power and momentum can be maintained with just the press of a button.
The "flying car logic" system uses ride-height sensors that are able to determine the reduction of force in the tires. This will allow the car to continue driving without interrupting its momentum. PTM is able to manage acceleration based on the current vehicle dynamics. In addition to this, five performance modes are available that can accommodate to various driving conditions.
The 2014 Camaro Z/28 the fastest model that ever hit the track. It was made to race and deliver faster lap times than ever before. The Camaro's improved speed came from three areas: increased grip, better stopping power and reduced curb weight. We can't forget another helpful addition, the 7.0L LS7 engine that has a SAE-certified rate of 505 horsepower! The "Flying Car Logic" on the 2014 Camaro Z/28 along with every other element was built specifically to help deliver a faster, more consistent, controlled, and dependable ride for drivers!
At Don Brown Chevrolet, we offer the best variety of Chevrolet vehicles. From Camaros to Tahoes, we have a car for every type of lifestyle. Stop by the dealership today and let us help you find the Chevy of your dreams!
Fact or Fiction: The Truth About Improving Fuel Economy - 02/26/2014
Myth: Non-chain, independent gas stations have poor quality fuel.
Fact or Fiction: FICTION. Local or independent gas stations usually purchase their fuel from a big name brand oil company. Filling up at a streamline station or the mom and pop station on the corner won't make a difference in your gas mileage!
Myth: To save gas you should pay more.
Fact or Fiction: FICTION. Some are under the impression that premium grades of gas provide better gas mileage. This is false. Unless you own a luxury or sport vehicle with a high-performance engine that requires premium fuel, you are wasting your money. Check your owner's manual if you are unsure of which grade to use. The owner's manual will indicate the suggested - or required - grade of fuel for your vehicle.
Myth: Windows down = decreases gas mileage.
Fact or Fiction: The answer to this is very tricky. Multiple studies have been done to prove whether turning on the A/C or driving with the windows down makes for better gas mileage. Researchers from Edmunds.com reported that a pickup truck received almost 10% better gas mileage when driving with the windows down. Consumer Reports also stated that running the air conditioning while driving at 65mph can decrease your mileage by 1mph or more. However, others argue that the wind pulls the vehicle back when the windows are down, forcing the vehicle to work harder. Overall, it depends on the vehicle and the speed at which you are driving. The easy answer? Slower driving = better mileage.
Myth: Early morning fill-ups get you more gas.
Fact or Fiction: FICTION. Whether you choose to fill up your tank before or after work, the amount of gas you receive will be the exact same. It is said that fluids are denser at lower temperatures, meaning you would receive a larger volume of gas. The truth is that your car is designed to keep the gas tank at a constant temperature and it will hold the same volume of gas no matter what time of day you fill up.
Now that you've read Fact or Fiction: The Truth About Improving Fuel Economy, you can start looking for the perfect Chevrolet vehicle that gets you great fuel mileage! At Don Brown Chevrolet, we have Chevy Cruzes, Impalas, and Malibus that will get you from point A to point B with minimal gas! Stop by the dealership today and get the Don Brown deal you deserve!

Chevy's LGBT- Inclusive Ads Run During Sochi Olympics - 02/11/2014
On Friday, February 7th, around noon Eastern, Chevy released two commercials onto YouTube. One for the all-new Chevy Traverse and the other, for the Chevrolet brand. But, what made these ads so different? Both commercials included LGBT families and same-sex weddings. The heart-warming ads made their debut on television during the broadcast of the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia! Ironic? We think not.
The ads were created to make a statement - declaring Chevrolet and General Motors long-time support for LGBT equality and also criticizing the encouragement of homophobia in Russia and other countries around the world. A fair amount of companies have started to spread the word and support the LGBT community as welll and so far the public is on their side.
Check out the two heart-felt commercials below:
At Don Brown Chevrolet, we are proud to be supporters of LGBT and all other communities within the city of St. Louis. All of those who walk through our dealership doors will be granted the same exceptional customer service and treatment that we strive to provide to each and every one of our customers.
