Chevy Hints at Introducing V8 Engines to Lower Trim Camaros

The Chevy Camaro won’t be muscled out of its peak position in the muscle car market. Chevrolet is looking to add numerous technologies and advanced engineering features to increase sales of the iconic Chevy Camaro and take over the top spot from the Ford Mustang.

The coolest way they’re proceeding with this pony car push? By bringing high-power V8 engines to lower trim Camaros.

This move will make higher performance available at a lower price point to box out the high-dollar Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger, two competitors that only promise V8s at their more expensive and elevated trim levels. Currently, the Chevy Camaro is second in sales to the Mustang, with the Challenger in third place.

Buyers of muscle cars tend to be automotive enthusiasts, meaning that these are the people who are looking for the potent thrill of a V8 engine. Making V8 engines more accessible to true lovers of all things “under the hood” by adding them to the lower trim Camaros is a brilliant tactical move on Chevrolet’s part.

Do you fall into the category of “automotive enthusiast?” At Tom Naquin Chevrolet, we are fully stocked with a wide variety of Chevrolet Camaros. No matter what color, what trim, or what performance options you’re looking for, we can help you find it at Tom Naquin.

The Updated Chevy Trailblazer Is Still Blazing Trails in Brazil

If you’re still mourning the 2009 departure of the Chevrolet Trailblazer from American soil, you might want to stop reading now—the pain of “oh-what-could-have-been” may be too much to bear. But, if you’re intrigued by “what-could-be-again” pay attention!

An updated Chevy Trailblazer has been turning heads way down south in Brazil, where it’s been a major force in the South American SUV scene since 2012. The new 2018 model introduces a swath of new technologies, both in the cabin and under the hood, as well as an all-new aesthetic.

New features for the Brazilian Trailblazer include blind spot, front collision, and rear movement alerts, a new premium audio system, and more, but the real icing on the cake is its Centrifugal Pendulum Absorber (CPA) system. The new CPA reduces vibration and noise, increases energy efficiency, and optimizes coupling at lower speeds with a six-speed transmission for a silkier ride.

On top of all this, the updated Chevy Trailblazer takes to the streets with an all-new, modernized aesthetic. With a crisper front fascia, smooth passenger windows, and an overall elegant posture, this Trailblazer has an almost luxurious appearance.

While you can’t purchase a new Trailblazer here at Tom Naquin (we’re just a bit to north of the border for those), we have a wide selection of Chevy SUVs, cars, and trucks that are sure to entice any driver. Visit us to see our full stock!
