ONSTAR BRINGS THE POWER OF 4G LTE TO THE CHEVY VOLT
Combined with the power of 4G LTE, OnStar is looking to take vehicle connectivity to a whole new level in the future with Skype, Twonky and others being demonstrated in a Chevrolet Volt research vehicle.
The conceptual in-car infotainment system, developed by OnStar in partnership with Verizon, provides access to the Cloud through the Verizon 4G LTE network and allows for direct access to streaming content from a home computer or via a popular streaming service.
The research vehicle has three different content ‘zones’; the driver can stream music, while rear passengers can control their entertainment from screens mounted on the headrests. With everyone in their ‘zone’ passengers can create the ride they are looking for, or share content with other passengers. It doesn’t come more custom, or cool than that.
Additionally, OnStar built on its work with Smart Grid technology to create an at home control system. The connection provides control of a home thermostat, lights, garage door and other systems through the in-vehicle energy management app.
While the applications shown in the Volt research vehicle are only conceptual, they demonstrate future opportunities powered by OnStar.
“These applications are just a glimpse of what is possible when you combine the cloud computing capabilities of OnStar and the power of the Verizon 4G LTE network,” said Nick Pudar, OnStar’s vice president of business development. “Moving forward we want to continue to provide a comprehensive suite of connected services and create a seamless and safe in-vehicle experience.”

Resale value. We understand that it’s a critical factor driving people’s decisions on what new vehicle to buy. At Chevy, it means designing, engineering and producing vehicles that perform beyond expectations now and maintain their quality and value over the long haul. It’s because of this dedication that five of our 2012 vehicles received the Best Resale Value Award by Kelley Blue Book. The 2012 Chevy winners by category are:
Sports Car: Camaro V6
Electric Car: Volt
High-Performance Car: Camaro SS
Full-Size SUV: Traverse
Overall Top Ten Cars: Camaro
Jack Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com says consumer research is especially important during tough economic times. “When keeping every dollar in your wallet as possible, car buyers should carefully review this year’s 2012 Best Resale Value award winners,” Nerad said. At Chevy we’re learned that even small changes can lead to big improvements. For example, the Camaro V6 — the only winner in the best sports car category — now features a 323-horsepower V6 as its base engine for improved performance. Its sister model and winner in the high-performance category, Camaro SS, broke with tradition offering a multi-link rear suspension instead of a live axle to improve handling on twisting roads. The gas-electric Volt (available to order at participating dealers) and Traverse — winners in the electric and full-size SUV categories — have also ventured away from traditional thinking to meet the changing needs of drivers. “Vehicle depreciation is a new-car buyer’s biggest expense, yet many shoppers don’t realize that resale value information is available for free on Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com”, Nerad said. “Taking the time to research and choose vehicle makes, models and options wisely now can help new-car shoppers get as much money as possible when they sell or trade-in the vehicle in the future.” To Chevy, the greatest reward is that drivers can turn to us knowing they will get the best value. That’s why we continue to push ourselves to improve each and every model every year. We don’t do it for awards, but it is nice to have something shiny to put on the shelves.

Forget about what compact cars have been, Cruze is everything a compact car should be. It gives you more of everything you need and deserve from efficiency to safety, features to styling. Conventional compact wisdom is challenged with one simple word: more.
It’s designed to fit seamlessly into your ever-evolving life. Cruze offers more cargo space3, more safety with best-in-class 10 standard air bags4, and more miles per gallon in the Cruze Eco. At 42 MPG5, it’s the best highway mileage of any gas engine in America. Your wallet is going to thank you.
All around, it’s more of what your life needs.
Exterior: An extension of personal style
Cruze exterior design gives you the presence of a more expensive car with its beveled hood, sharp angles and taut curves. Centered by the strong, attention-grabbing Chevrolet grille, its swept-back lamps lead the eye across its sculpted fenders, around the sides and back again. Bottom line? Don’t be surprised when people stop to admire.
And sure, Cruze leaves a lasting impression with its bold exterior design, but don’t forget those curves, lines and angles do more than just please the eye and turn heads. They improve the aerodynamics of Cruze, in the end optimizing fuel efficiency5 and helping you get the most out of each drop of fuel.
Interior: Generous room and comfort
It’s called a compact, but that just doesn’t seem fair to other compact cars. Its cavernous interior not only has more passenger room than Ford Focus sedan and Toyota Corolla, it beats them out with more cargo space too. And Cruze is smart about how to use all that space with 60/40 folding rear seats so you can find the room for larger items. There’s even refined touches such as rich colors, bold dials and details like available leather-appointed seats that give Cruze a premium feel.
You can even enjoy peace and quiet while driving. Cruze is designed to keep outside noise outside with a triple-sealed, acoustic-laminated glass windshield. When you’re inside Cruze, you’re wrapped in amenities uncommon among compact cars. No wonder it left an impression on the editors at Ward’s AutoWorld. They went on to name Cruze as one of Ward’s 10 Best Interiors of 2011, noting its sharp appearance and exceptional value.
Performance: Sophisticated performance, ride and handling. You want a car that makes the most out of every dollar you put in the gas tank, but without sacrificing performance and handling. To get those results you need to have a pretty impressive engine, and Cruze absolutely does.
The available 1.4L turbocharged engine is designed for fuel efficiency without compromising performance. It delivers 138 horsepower and accelerates with authority. Cruze takes on tight corners with rack-mounted electric power steering and a race-proven Z-link rear suspension on LT, LTZ and Eco automatic models. It’s a driving experience that just might surprise you. It sure surprised some of our competitors, especially when AMCI Testing announced that the 2011 Cruze LTZ outcornered the 2011 BMW 328i6 on dry pavement.
Eco holds the rest of the Cruze family to a high standard, and all the models live up to it. Standard 6-speed transmissions, like the manual in Cruze LS, help offer 36 MPG highway5. Then there’s the 6-speed automatic transmission available on LT and standard on LTZ, with the 1.4L turbocharged engine—a performance increase that helps Cruze offer 38 MPG highway5.
Cruze is one of the most tested vehicles in Chevrolet history, and that’s why we guarantee its quality with a 100,000-mile/5-year transferable Powertrain Limited Warranty.
Technology: From to-do list to to-done list, the 2012 Cruze offers up an extensive array of technology features to give you more conveniences throughout your day. Cruze has the latest in mobile technology and safety with the help of OnStar®, standard for the first six months8. And let’s face it, you want to enjoy every moment, even when driving. That’s why Cruze has an Infotainment system, equipping you with the latest entertainment features such as an available touch-screen navigation9 radio with Turn-by-Turn Navigation8, so you can do just that.
