VICKAR AUTO GROUP NOW CARRYING BEDFORD DECKS FOR 2500, 3500 CHEVY TRUCKS
The deck trucks, he notes, fit on both the 2500 and 3500 Chevy trucks. These decks come in various styles stating with a flat deck with tool boxes under the deck to contractor decks with tool boxes all around but still room for a fifth wheel hitch as well as 4x8 storage.
As the Chevy Colorado enters its fifth year in its second generation, the engineers and designers at GMC realized the compact pickup would have some seriously stiff competition in terms of smaller pick-ups in the coming months with Ford and Jeep rising to the occasion. So, the 2019 Chevrolet Colorado features some pretty cool updates and improvements.
For starters, the original Blazer was a more of a truck than a crossover, with a choppy ride and a larger engine. This all-new version is a crossover with a unibody structure, and a much smaller engine set to reside beneath the newly sculpted hood. This two-row CUV will position itself between the Equinox and Traverse in terms of size, amenities and performance.
It has an 8-inch colour touchscreen, and includes Chevrolet MyLink with Bose audio, 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and offer up to six USB ports. Available safety technologies include adaptive cruise control and rear camera mirror.

VICKAR COMMUNITY CHEVROLET HYBRIDS, ELECTRIC VEHICLES THE ANSWER TO FAST RISING GAS PRICES
Chevrolet Volt is into its third year, and the 2018 version of the hybrid model is little changed from last year. The 18.4kw/hour lithium-ion battery pack allows for a range of up to 80 km using electric mode in the summer months and 70 km per litre when running on gasoline after the battery capacity is used up.
Vickar Community Chevrolet sales manager Devon Cuscito reports that the dealership currently has one Volt in stock and one more en route.
He notes that the Chevy Bolt, General Motors’ new all-electric vehicle, is attracting a lot of interest. “We have 10-12 people a month asking about it,” he says. “People want to come in and see it and take it for a test drive.
“But they are hard to get. We are also expecting to get one model this year.”
He describes the Bolt as an amazing car. “Its range is up to 400 km,” he says.
The Chevrolet Trax might be small in stature, but it’s large in features and fun on the road. Recently face-lifted just a year ago, the 2018 Chevrolet Trax makes a serious statement on the road and is ready to tackle urban life and anything you throw its way.
For starters, the 2018 Chevrolet Trax is a true compact crossover and will adapt to any urban setting you throw it into with an overall length of just 167.20”. Despite that, the Trax offers up an impressive 529 litres behind the rear seats, and if those are folded down that increases to 1,370 litres. There’s room for 5 inside, and Chevrolet claims that if needed you can transport items as long as 8 feet with the rear seat folded down. Looks can be deceiving when it comes to interior space.
From the outside, the 2018 Chevrolet Trax is the definition of approachable. Rounded features and a friendly front grille give the Trax a gentle sort of nature, yet modern touches abound with standard halogen projector-type headlights and LED taillights.
An available RedLine edition is available for LT and Premier modles and features 18” black finish aluminum wheels with red accents, black mirror caps, a blacked out front grille, front and rear black Chevrolet bowties, black beltline moldings, and a black Trax badge with red outline.
Regardless of which model (LS, LT, Premier) or which drivetrain (FWD or AWD), the same engine is found in the 2018 Chevrolet Trax: a 1.4L ECOTEC turbocharged unit that produces 138 horespower and 148 lb-ft of torque that’s paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
Inside the 2018 Chevrolet Trax you’ll find features like standard OnStar 4G LTE wifi connectivity, Chevrolet MyLink with a 7” color touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth and voice control.
To find out more about the cute but capable 2018 Chevrolet Trax, head down to your local Vickar Chevrolet to speak to one of our experts, and don’t forget to take the Trax out for a test drive, too.
Most notable for the 2018 model year is the addition of an available diesel engine in the hatchback Cruze. The 1.6L 4-cyl turbo-diesel engine produces 137 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque. On the highway, the diesel engine drinks an impressive 5L/100km, while in the city that number only increases to 7.7L/100km.

2018 CHEVROLET TRAX VERSUS ITS COMPETITION: FOR THOSE THAT WANT AN AGILE SUV
With the 2018 Chevrolet Trax, we get a utility vehicle offering between 530 liters and 1,371 liters of cargo space depending on the configuration of the rear seats. There is no doubt that the Chevrolet Trax is a versatile and spacious vehicle. But what is especially interesting with the Trax, is that it offers all this space despite very compact dimensions.
Depending on your vehicle’s ground clearance and the snow conditions, you can sometimes gently rock the vehicle free. Turn the steering wheel left and right to clear the area around the front wheels (or using a snow shovel). Turn off any traction system. Gently shift back and forth between reverse and a low forward gear, spinning the wheels as little as possible. This creates a rocking motion that may help free the vehicle.
