Pine Belt Chevy Corvette – Chevy Corvette Dealer in NJ –


DETROIT – Chevrolet today unveiled the 2013 Corvette 427 Convertible Collector Edition – the fastest, most capable convertible in Corvette’s history – as well as a 60th Anniversary Package that will be available on all 2013 Corvette models.

“The 2013 model year will be historic for Corvette, marking its 60th Anniversary and the final year for the current ‘C6’ generation,” said Chris Perry, vice president, Global Marketing and Strategy for Chevrolet. “We couldn’t think of a more fitting way to celebrate these milestones than bringing back one of the most-coveted combinations in the brand’s history – the Corvette convertible and a 427 cubic-inch engine.”

The 60th Anniversary Package and 427 Convertible will make their public debut at the Barrett Jackson collector car auction in Scottsdale, Ariz., on Jan 21, and will arrive at U.S. Chevrolet dealers early this summer.

Corvette 427 Convertible Collector Edition

The Corvette 427 Convertible blends elements of the Z06 and ZR1 models to create the fastest and most-capable convertible in Corvette’s history.

Its heart is the 427-cubic-inch (7.0L) LS7 engine from the Corvette Z06. Rated at 505 horsepower (377 kW) and 470 lb.-ft. of torque (637 Nm), it is the most powerful engine ever installed in a production Corvette convertible – and, like the Z06, the 427 Convertible is only available with a six-speed manual transmission.

The LS7 was co-developed with the Corvette Le Mans-winning GT1 engine and features lightweight titanium connecting rods and intake valves, as well as racing-inspired high-flow cylinder heads and a dry-sump oiling system. It is assembled by hand at GM’s Performance Build Center, where customers who purchase the 427 Convertible Collector Edition can purchase the Corvette Build Experience option and assemble the engine that will power their new car.

Corvette 60th Anniversary Package

All 2013 Corvette models, including the 427 Convertible, will be available with a 60th Anniversary Package, featuring an Arctic White exterior with a Blue Diamond leather-wrapped interior with suede accents. Convertible models will have a blue top.

Additional content includes a ZR1-style rear spoiler, special badging, gray-painted brake calipers and the “60th” logo on the wheel center caps, steering wheel and seat headrests. An optional graphics package adds full-length racing stripes in Pearl Silver Blue, including a tonal stripe stitched into the convertible top, extending the graphic theme over the roof.

For 2013, all Corvettes will feature 60th Anniversary badges on the fascias and the “waterfall” panel on convertible models, as well as 60th logos in the instrument panel gauge cluster and on the sill plates.

Pine Belt Cadillac – The 2012 CTS-V

Cadillac has just spilled the beans on how it plans to keep its MVP fresh for the 2012 model year. The recipe for the 2012 CTS lineup hinges on a new Touring package (from $2,065) that adds many of the features of the high-performance CTS-V range without adding any actual power.

Offered on all three bodystyles, the CTS Touring pack includes such niceties as a buttoned-up suspension (presumably not the actual magnetic ride control setup at the CTS-V given the price), faux suede inserts on the seats and steering wheel, Sapele wood trim and metal pedal pads. The extensive package also includes exterior touches like HID headlamps, dual exhaust, a darker grille finish, different wheel packages and a decklid spoiler cribbed from the V.

There are some equipment differences with the Touring Package depending on whether you stick with the base 3.0-liter V6 or opt for the 3.6-liter. The 3.0-liter package costs less at $2,065, but the 3.6-liter Touring group ($2,810) also includes grippy Recaro seats and larger 19-inch wheels shod in either summer or all-season tires. While we’d much rather have the 556-horsepower, 6.2-liter V8 of the real-deal CTS-V, either package seems like a screaming deal for all of the extra equipment.

For 2012, General Motorshas also updated the entire CTS range with Bluetooth as standard fit and added blind spot assist and rain-sensing wipers to the options list. New paint colors include Opulent Blue Metallic, Black Diamond Tri-Coat and Mocha Steel Metallic. Pricing starts at $36,790 for the sedan, $39,590 for the rakish coupe and $39,890 for the Sport Wagon.

New Touring Package Models Enrich Cadillac CTS Lineup
Performance elements from V-series offered for standard models from $2,065


DETROIT – Cadillac is offering some of the performance elements of its V-series product line on standard 2012 CTS models through the new Touring Package Sedan, Coupe and Wagon starting at $2,065.

The new CTS Touring Packages include such luxury features as Recaro seats, microfiber suede inserts on the seats and steering wheel, high-intensity discharge (HID) headlamps, a performance-tuned suspension, a V-series aerodynamic spoiler and performance wheel packages.

“One of the best aspects of high-performance machines like the V-Series is that they bring new elements into the brand that enrich the rest of the breed,” said Cadillac Vice President of Marketing Don Butler. “The new Touring Packages give CTS buyers access to some desirable V-Series elements, in a more-approachable format.”

CTS Sedan and Sport Wagon come with either a 3.0L or optional 3.6L engine, both Direct Injection V-6 units, while CTS Coupe comes standard with the 3.6L engine. Each engine now will have its own Touring Package available:

The 3.0L V-6 touring package option retails at $2,065 and includes 18-inch pearl nickel finish wheels; dual exhaust; dark finish grille; HID headlamps and fog lamps; V-Series aerodynamic center high mounted stop lamp (except Sport Wagon); suede seat inserts, steering wheel and shifter; midnight Sapele wood trim and metal pedals.

The 3.6L V-6 Touring Package option retails at $2,810 and features Recaro performance seating, suede-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, midnight Sapele wood trim and metal pedals. The 3.6L Touring Package also gets a dark finish grille, V-Series aerodynamic center high mounted stop lamp (except Sport Wagon) and the 19-inch polished wheels with either summer tire performance package or all season tire package.

With 318 horsepower from the 3.6L direct injection V-6 engine, the CTS accelerates from 0-60 in 6.3 seconds, and comes with optional all-wheel-drive and FE3 performance suspension designed for agile cornering and braking. Steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters for the electronically controlled 6-speed automatic transmission are also included in the FE3 performance package.

Other new CTS features for 2012 include standard Bluetooth connectivity, optional RainSense Wipers and Side Blind Zone Alert (Coupe) along with new colors: Opulent Blue Metallic; Black Diamond Tri-Coat and Mocha Steel Metallic.

Suggested retail prices including destination charges for the 2012 models start at $36,790 for the CTS Sedan, $39,590 for the CTS Coupe and $39,890 for the CTS Sport Wagon.

Pine Belt Auto: 10 Steps to Better Your MPG.

1) Maintain Your Vehicle. A car in poor condition may use more gas than one that has been well maintained and tuned up. Incorrect fuel ratio, bad spark plugs and incorrect spark timing can have a big effect on gas mileage. Spark Plugs in poor condition can reduce gas mileage up to 12%

2) Check Your Air Filter. Almost 25% of cars are running on a dirty air filter. Changing a dirty filter can improve gas mileage by as much as 10-20%!

3) Make Sure Your Tires are Properly Inflated. Under inflated tires can adversely affect a car’s mileage and lead to uneven and/or premature wear. Properly inflating problem tires is like knocking 11 cents off a gallon of gas!

4) Observe the Speed Limit. Although each vechicle reaches its optimal fuel economy at different ranges of speed, gas mileage decreases rapidly at speeds over 60 mph. Put it in perspective: Driving over 60 mph is like paying an extra $0.28 per gallon for gas. Not to mention that observing the speed limit is also safer!

5) Use Cruise Control. Using cruise control on the highway can help you maintain a constant speed and will help you save on gas.

6) Don’t Idle. One of the easiest ways to save gas is to turn off a car’s engine while waiting at a curb or sitting at an extended stoplight for more than 30 seconds.

7) Go Easy on The Brakes & Gas Pedal. Avoid “jackrabbit” starts by accelerating gradually whenever possible. The smoother you accelerate and decelerate, the better your gas mileage, with potential gas savings of 33 percent on the highway and five percent around town. This will not only increase your gas mileage, but also prolong the life of your brakes!

8 ) Remove Excess Weight. Avoid keeping any unnecessary items in your vehicle, especially those that are heavy. Reducing the vehicle’s weight is the easiest way to improve your fuel economy. Carrying an additional 100 pounds around can increase a vehicle’s energy consumption by 1-2%. For every 100 pounds unloaded, you’re saving about 6 cents per gallon!

9) Reduce Drag. Around half of your vehicles energy is expended overcoming air resistance, with the other half expending in acceleration. Reduce your car’s workload by removing anything that may cause drag, such as luggage, bike or ski racks. Also keep your windows closed whenever possible, as open windows actually reduce gas mileage compared to using the air conditioning.

10) Combine Errands into One Trip. Consolidate your trips and errands to destinations that are near one another. Once you arrive, park and walk between destinations. Try to save errands for one afternoon and plan your out your trip. You will save gas and reduce wear and tear on your vehicle!

A Great 5 Star Google Review for Pine Belt Cadillac

Pine Belt Cadillac, located off exit 82 of the Garden State Parkway in Toms River, has been servicing ocean county for years now. Here’s what another happy customer had to say about us!!

Leased my 2011 CTS from this dealership. Drove down here from Central Jersey because I heard the service was exceptional and sure enough it was. Was treated with kindness, respect and patience. They gave me a good price for my Audi trade-in and helped me take the CTS home that night. Set up the onstar for me, and even called up to check on how I was doing with the car. Very professional dealership and highly recommended.

Cadillac CUE – First Of Its Kind Technology

CUE blends first-of-its-kind technology with highly intelligent design, bringing the intuitive control of smart phones and tablets safely to the road. With a clean, uncluttered design, natural voice recognition, and responsive touch screen technology, CUE creates an experience that’s as effortless as it is advanced.

Debuting in 2012 on the 2013 Cadillac XTS and ATS luxury sedans and the SRX luxury crossover, CUE is designed to be unique for each driver. For the tech-savvy, it’s everything you want it to be—a full suite of infotainment, navigation and communication tools that keeps you fully connected. But you don’t have to be a technophile to appreciate it. CUE is remarkably simple, intuitive and accessible.

CUE doesn’t replace your smartphone or iPod®. Rather, it seamlessly integrates them with your vehicle controls. Entertainment, navigation and communication are all available in one remarkably intuitive interface. It’s so advanced, it even senses your presence and provides tactile feedback from its brilliant touch screen, allowing you to keep your eyes safely on the road.

The heart of CUE is the 8-inch LCD touch screen, seamlessly integrated into the top of the instrument panel. The vibrant LCD screen displays CUE’s home page, which resembles a smart phone screen by using large, easy-to-target icons to execute commands.

CUE is a highly advanced in-vehicle hub for all the information and entertainment in your life. CUE’s controls function to create a look that is unmistakably Cadillac—vibrant colors, a piano-black faceplate, precision milled buttons, intuitive touch screen placement and a sculpted front console. All working together to create an impressive, modern design.

To improve simplicity and connectivity for consumers, CUE will feature several auto industry firsts:

  • Your screen layout has proximity sensing, so it displays only the information you want—keeping it clean and uncluttered. Icons not in use fade back, and as your hand approaches the screen, the full menu illuminates.

  • CUE gives you tactile feedback on the touch screen and certain controls. Buttons pulse when pressed to affirm that the command is being carried out, allowing you to make your selection without taking your eyes off the road.

  • To make your interactions with CUE simple and safe, Cadillac employed the gestures used on today’s smart phones and tablets. Tap, flick, swipe and spread through homepages and customizable information.

  • The available 12.3-inch LCD gauge cluster can be customized into one of four screen layouts. They mix vehicle data, such as readouts for fuel levels and speed, with navigation, phone and entertainment information.

  • CUE employs natural voice recognition so you can speak conversationally, avoiding awkward commands and complicated sequences, making your interaction with CUE easier and more responsive.
