Your car becomes the ultimate MOBILE hotspot with 4g lte Connectivity

          

This year at the International CES Show in Las Vegas, Chevrolet made an announcement that will change the way you think about in-vehicle technology and how it improves your overall driving experience. Coming this Summer, built-in OnStar® with 4G LTE will be available on nearly every vehicle in the Chevrolet 2015 lineup, from Spark to Corvette to the all-new Silverado. When equipped with 4G LTE your car becomes the ultimate mobile hub, with excellent signal quality and bandwidth for up to seven devices. This ingenuity puts Chevrolet ahead of the pack with more vehicles than any other automotive brand to feature that level of in-vehicle connectivity.

This simple new 4G LTE technology is built directly into your vehicle, turning it into a true Wi-Fi hotspot. The powerful signal gives you and your passengers the ability to seamlessly connect smart devices to the Internet — anytime, anywhere. It’s the easiest way to access data on the go and continuously improve your experience on the road. Plus, you’ll enjoy all the benefits OnStar® has offered in the past, such as Automatic Crash Response, Stolen Vehicle Assistance and Roadside Assistance. With this kind of innovative connectivity, you can expect a driving experience unlike any other.

And with that level of connectivity, you can update your favorite apps wherever you are. With available Chevrolet MyLink, offered on most vehicles, and the built-in AppShop, you can easily keep your vehicle up to date on all the latest and greatest, including Priceline, The Weather Channel, NPR, Famigo, iHeartRadio and more. Many apps, such as Vehicle Health Maintenance, even empower you, as they are integrated with your vehicle’s key systems. This app gives you greater knowledge of your vehicle’s maintenance issues and helps you operate your vehicle more effectively and efficiently.

                  

            


RELIVE YOUR DRIVES,
AGAIN AND AGAIN.

Chevrolet ingenuity continues with the all-new industry-exclusive Performance Data Recorder, available on all 2015 Corvette models. This seamlessly integrated technology lets you capture video, audio and real-time performance data from your driving experiences on and off the track. Watch the video — complete with data overlays — on the vehicle’s 8-inch color touch-screen (when the car is parked), or download to a computer for further editing and sharing via social media. You can even analyze your driving technique using the included GM Toolbox driving analysis software.

Ingenuity drives Chevrolet. From the entertainment features of the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment platform to the revolutionary OnStar® vehicle response system available on most Chevrolet vehicles, Chevrolet has been on the forefront of innovations to make driving simpler, safer and more connected. Explore some of the technologies already transforming the Chevrolet experience.

SIRI EYES FREE
EXCLUSIVE CONNECTIVITY

Chevrolet is the first vehicle manufacturer to offer Siri Eyes Free to iPhone users on 2013 or later Sonic, Spark and Spark EV models equipped with MyLink Radio. Siri lets you take charge with your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road. Complete an array of hands-free tasks like composing text messages to stored contacts on your phone by directing Siri via voice command. Simply connect your iPhone 4S or later with available Chevrolet MyLink via Bluetooth®, then use the steering wheel voice activation button to begin.

BRINGGO
FROM A TO B TO EVERYWHERE

The available BringGo navigation app on Sonic, Spark and Spark EV models (2013 or later) offers plenty of easy-to-use features that let you discover new destinations without the stress of getting lost. Explore with the convenience of 3-D maps with lane suggestions, live traffic data, local search via Google™, a Where Am I? Locator and other features that help you stay in the loop.

                    

CHEVROLET MYLINK
LIFE SIMPLY CONNECTED

Life doesn’t stop while you’re in your car, so why should you? With Chevrolet MyLink you’ll stay connected to everything most important to you while you’re out and about. Speak to friends, family and colleagues safely while driving. Enjoy your favorite music or news programs. And that’s just the beginning. So what is Chevrolet MyLink? It’s your life simply connected.

       

           


THE POWER OF ONSTAR®

Today we’re more connected than ever before. Especially in our vehicles. With OnStar, you can lock your car from your phone. You can get a diagnostics check. You can make calls safely with both hands on the wheel. OnStar can even help find your car if it’s stolen. And, as always, OnStar can get help if you’re in a crash or face an emergency. Most new Chevrolet vehicles come with the OnStar Directions & Connections® Plan standard for the first 6 months. OnStar: Safely connecting you in ways you never thought possible.

AUTOMATIC CRASH RESPONSE
FOR WHEN SECONDS COUNT

In the seconds after a crash has occurred, OnStar’s Automatic Crash Response can connect you to the help you need. It can sense a crash in which the air bag may not have deployed. Plus, in most 2010 and newer Chevy models, it can transmit specific crash data, including direction and number of impacts, rollover status, and maximum velocity at impact. This information helps predict the likelihood of serious injuries and is shared with first responders to make sure the right personnel and equipment comes to your rescue. Since OnStar launched, Automatic Crash Response has helped out in over 268,000 global incidents, assisting drivers in everything from simple fender-benders to life-threatening collisions.

REMOTELINK
PUT YOUR VEHICLE ON EXTREME REMOTE CONTROL

The OnStar RemoteLink® mobile app allows you to control your Chevrolet vehicle from almost anywhere in your world. With it, you can view your fuel levels, tire pressure, oil life, lock and unlock doors, activate horn and lights to find your vehicle, contact an Advisor, download directions to your OnStar system and more.

STOLEN VEHICLE ASSISTANCE
SMART ENOUGH TO CATCH A THIEF

Stolen Vehicle Assistance helps safely recover most 2009 and newer Chevrolet models before a thief has time to realize what’s happened — amazing and standard on most Chevrolet models for six months. Stolen Vehicle Assistance deploys some powerful tools to help recover your vehicle, starting with GPS technology, to find and track your vehicle while it is on the move. If it stops, Remote Ignition Block™ can send a signal to your stolen vehicle, preventing it from being restarted. Additionally, Stolen Vehicle Slowdown®† can send a signal to your car to gradually slow it down so the police don’t have to pursue with a high-speed chase. Instead, once it is identified, they can safely follow behind as it slows and quickly recover it.

          

VEHICLE DIAGNOSTICS
MONTHLY DIAGNOSTIC REPORTS

OnStar Vehicle Diagnostics automatically keeps you informed once a month about your vehicle's overall health. You'll know ahead of time before a small problem turns into a big problem. You can also access on-demand checks from an OnStar Advisor — even while driving — by pressing your blue button inside your Chevrolet vehicle.

            

          


THE FUTURE OF PROPULSION

From the earliest days of combustion engines to today’s hybrid, electric and cleaner diesel vehicles, the technology that drives us has changed drastically over the years. And with the revolutionary Volt (America’s best-selling plug-in), the next-generation 2014 Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel and others, Chevrolet continues to push the technology of propulsion forward.

CHEVROLET VOLT
ELECTRIC WHEN YOU WANT IT,
GAS WHEN YOU NEED IT

Electricity and gas seamlessly come together to deliver the best of both worlds in Chevrolet Volt — the everyday electric car with gas for longer trips. By charging regularly, Volt owners are averaging 900 miles between fill-ups. How does Volt deliver this ultimate freedom from the pump? Its advanced lithium-ion battery allows you to begin by driving gas-free for an EPA-estimated 38 miles. Then the onboard gas-powered generator provides electricity so you can drive a total of up to 380 miles on a full charge and full tank of gas.
 

CRUZE CLEAN TURBO DIESEL
A NEW GENERATION OF DIESEL

The all-new 2014 Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel combines maximized efficiency and impressive performance. Its 2.0L turbocharged clean diesel engine boasts an SAE-certified 151 horsepower and 264 lb.-ft. of low-end torque — more than Volkswagen Jetta TDI. Plus, with an EPA-estimated 46 MPG highway, it offers the best fuel economy of any gas-only or diesel car in America. And the best thing is, Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel emissions are below strict U.S. environmental standards. New technologies including exhaust gas recirculation, selective catalyst reduction, a particulate filter and advanced fuel system components allow the diesel engine in Cruze to generate at least 90% less nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions than previous generation diesels and very low particulate emissions.
