Chevrolet Silverado’s Steel Bed Outperforms Ford F-150 - 06/22/2016

Chevrolet Silverado’s Steel Bed Outperforms Ford F-150
DURAND, Mich., – Are you team Chevy or team Ford? We hope if you’re reading this you’re team Chevy, because in the latest side-by-side comparisons of the Silverado and the F-150, the Chevrolet Silverado’s steel bed outperforms Ford F-150 and its aluminum bed.

Chevrolet conducted three field demonstrations shown in their newly released video footage. A scientific test was performed using a wedge shaped striker demonstrating the trucks ability to hold up in the case of high impact damage, and a real-world example test was conducted of a heavy tool box being pushed into the truck beds. But the most dramatic test performed was the dropping of 55 landscaping blocks weighing 825 pounds from 5 feet above the truck beds. In all three tests, Chevrolet’s steel bed outperformed the aluminum bed in the F-150.


In the conversation surrounding the #SilveradoStrong campaign on social media, many Ford fans have pointed out that in real world situations a bed-liner would be in place. We don’t think that changes things though, considering that the tests clearly identify which material is stronger.

Although aluminum is a much lighter substance than steel, it’s important to note that if the steel on the Silverado bed were to be damaged, it’s generally much easier to repair than it’s aluminum competitor.

So what do you think? We think the videos clearly show that the Chevrolet Silverado’s steel bed outperforms Ford F-150 and its aluminum bed. Do you think the tests were harsher than any real world situation that would be presented to a pickup truck and its owner? We think the extremity of the demonstrations shows Chevy’s durability and strength, and we think you should be able to use your truck as a truck.

Summer Car Care at Graff Durand - 06/13/2016

Summer Car Care at Graff Durand

DURAND, Mich., – Summer is finally here and we know that means travel plans for many families. With that in mind, we’ve created our new Summer Car Care at Graff Durand pages. It’s easy to get lost in the excitement of vacation time, but it’s important to stay up-to-date on your vehicle maintenance. We’ve outlined some of the basic maintenance you should keep up on your car during the summer, including cooling and A/C systems, cosmetic damages, exterior lights, fuel system, and sun protection. If you have any adventures planned during the warm weather months, it’s especially important that you keep your vehicle in good traveling condition. We want to make sure you and your family arrive at your destination safely and comfortably. Check out the pages below:

Summer Car Care at Graff Durand

Cooling and A/C Systems: On this page we run through the importance of your cooling and A/C systems. Both of these systems are crucial during hot weather. We outline some warning signs that could tip you off to dysfunctional cooling or A/C systems, that may ultimately help you recognize a problem with your car. The cooling system keeps your engine from overheating and the A/C system keeps you and your passengers cool. Don’t get stuck on the side of the road due to an unchecked cooling or A/C system.

Cosmetic Damage: Here we discuss why it’s easiest to fix cosmetic damages on your vehicle during the summer. We go over some common cosmetic fixes and why it’s important to the life of your car to get them fixed. Many cosmetic damages can cause rust, which greatly decreases the value of your vehicle. Save yourself time and money in the long run by fixing cosmetic damages as soon as possible.

Exterior Lights: On this page we talk about the different exterior lights found on your vehicle and why it’s important to keep them in working condition. Light maintenance often gets overlooked when it comes to routine vehicle care, but exterior lights are very important to your safety while driving. We go over different types of headlights and how you can change them yourself at home, as well as an easy way to make sure your exterior lights are working properly.

Fuel System: Here we go over what your fuel system does for your vehicle and the components that make it up. We talk about some warning signs that mean your fuel system may be working inefficiently and why it’s important to maintain your fuel system in your vehicle. Gasoline is the main source of power in your vehicle. If the fuel system isn’t working properly you could be causing expensive damage to your vehicle. If you notice the warning signs, don’t wait to service your fuel system.

Sun Protection: On the Sun Protection page, we discuss some tips and tricks for protecting your vehicle from the harmful UV rays of the sun. We go over the types of damage that can be caused by sun and what you can do to prevent them. You wouldn’t go out in the sun all day without sunscreen on your skin, so why would you want to leave your vehicle unprotected from the sun during the summer?

After you’ve taken a look at all of our pages on Summer Car Care at Graff Durand, we hope you understand the importance of maintaining your vehicle during the hot summer months. We’d be more than happy to help you with your cooling and A/C system, cosmetic damages, exterior lights, fuel system, or sun protection to get your car in great working condition for all of the summer plans you have this season. Be sure to give us a call at (989) 288-2657 or make a service appointment online. If you have any other questions or concerns about your vehicle maintenance, you can check out our FAQ section on our service page.

Perhaps your dad just isn’t the gift-receiving guy. No matter the case, Father’s Day is a time to celebrate the dads in your life.

2017 Chevrolet Silverado HD Features a New Intake System - 06/09/2016

DURAND, Mich., – Introducing the newest way to divert dry cool air into the engine of your truck, the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado HD features a new intake system. The new system brings sustained performance and lower engine temperatures, even during tough driving conditions. Cooler engine temperatures help the truck run better overall, especially in the harshest testing environment. “While developing this all-new induction system, we considered our customers towing a maximum-weight trailer through the Eisenhower Tunnel on a hot, rainy summer day,” said Eric Stanczak, chief engineer, Silverado HD.

2017 Chevrolet Silverado HD Features a New Intake System

Weather: The functional hood scoop uses an air/water separator to ensure only clean, dry air enters the engine. Rain doesn’t pose a huge threat to the intake system, the more worrisome issue for developers was the mist on wet roads and smaller water droplets. The new system managed water droplets of all kinds with ease during testing.

2017 Chevrolet Silverado HD Features a New Intake System

Elevation: The Eisenhower Tunnel, mentioned above is the highest vehicle tunnel at 11,000 feet above sea level. Higher elevations change the air quality. The Chevy Silverado performed well in all testing environments.

It's National Tire Safety Week - 06/03/2016

This week it's National Tire Safety Week! With the unofficial kick-off of summer that Memorial Day represents, vacation time and road trips may be on the mind. Take some time this week to make sure your vehicle’s tires are up to par for your upcoming adventures this summer. Don’t get stranded or left in a less than desirable situation due to unchecked tires! While some tire tragedies are simply caused by an accident, many can be prevented by following these simple maintenance tips, most of which can be done at home.

Check your tire pressure
It's National Tire Safety Week

You should know the correct tire pressure for your vehicle and check it often. The correct pounds/square inch (psi) can be found on a sticker somewhere along inside of your driver side door. Generally, most vehicles should be kept around 30 psi. You can purchase an inexpensive tire pressure gauge at a local hardware or car care store and keep it in your car. Under inflated tires can cause uneven wear and become a safety hazard if left unchecked.

Check your tire tread
It's National Tire Safety Week

Many people rely on the “penny check” to tell them if their tires are starting to wear out. If you stick a penny in between the tire tread with Lincoln’s head facing down, and you can see all of Lincoln’s head above the tread then it’s definitely time for new tires. Driving on tires that are too worn can be extremely dangerous, putting you at higher risk of sliding on the road in wet conditions. Worn tires are also more likely to become flat in the case of potholes or sharp objects.

Have your tires balanced, rotated and aligned
It's National Tire Safety Week

You can’t balance, rotate, or align your tires without the proper equipment, so it’s important to bring your vehicle in for these routine maintenance checks. Tires should be rotated every 5,000 to 7,000 miles to avoid uneven wear. You may notice that your steering wheel pulls to one side or shakes while you’re driving. If this is the case, your tires probably need to be aligned or balanced. If tires are not aligned and balanced properly, uneven wear can also occur. If you are allowing your tires to wear unevenly, you will find that you need to replace them more often, causing you to spend unnecessary money more often.

Always keep a spare tire and tools in your car
It's National Tire Safety Week

Accidents do happen even when you do everything you can to avoid them. It’s important to be prepared in case of an emergency. Keep a properly inflated spare in your vehicle at all times, as well as the proper equipment needed to change a tire. You should also always have your insurance and phone number to a roadside assistance service in the case that you cannot fix the problem yourself.

Since it's National Tire Safety Week we hope that you take some time to make sure your tires are in good condition! If you’re having any trouble or think you need an alignment check, come down to the dealership today! We always offer free alignment checks in our service center. Our ASE Certified technicians would be happy to make sure your vehicle is running smoothly this summer.

If summer has brought you thoughts of new vehicles, check out our Buying vs. Leasing page to read about the pros and cons of both processes. Once you decide which is right for you, check out the How to Buy and How to Lease pages to learn about everything that goes into each option.

50th Anniversary Edition Chevrolet Camaro - 06/02/2016

50th Anniversary Edition Chevrolet Camaro

DURAND, Mich. – This September the Chevrolet Camaro will celebrate its 50th birthday! In preparation Chevrolet released the announcement of a 50th Anniversary Edition Chevrolet Camaro earlier this year. With summer quickly approaching, Camaro fans are patiently waiting, as an official release date has yet to be set. Although we still don’t know much more than “Available Summer 2016,” here’s what we do know:

50th Anniversary Edition Chevrolet Camaro


The Camaro was born on September 26, 1966.

In their press release, Chevy stated, “…for millions of people, it was love at first sight. People have written songs about it, made movies starring it and told numerous Camaro stories in the years since. So to celebrate the 50th anniversary of one of history’s most epic cars, we created the most epic Camaro yet.”


The 50th Anniversary Edition is going to look really awesome. 

It will be available in both coupe and convertible models. The 50th anniversary edition Camaro will feature 20-inch wheels, a unique grille with satin chrome accents, orange brake calipers, Nightfall Gray Metallic exterior, a unique black leather interior, and other distinct 50th anniversary treatments.
Since that’s about all we know right now, here are some fun Chevrolet Camaro facts to hold you over until the 50th Anniversary Edition arrives:


It was almost called the “Panther”. 

“Camaro” is a completely made up word. GM considered a laundry list of other names before finally landing on “Camaro” only a few weeks before the official debut.

You can see the original Camaro on display. 

This summer during the annual Woodward Dream Cruise week in Detroit, thanks to the Historic Vehicle Association, the first Camaro will be on display to the public.

50th Anniversary Edition Chevrolet Camaro

It’s the third most popular collector car. 

Behind only the Chevy Corvette and the Ford Mustang.


The original Camaro had tons of engine options. 

Seven to be exact. One of the options, the Z/28, was a special performance package making the Camaro SCCA-race legal.


The Camaro has paced the Indy 500 eight times. 

That's the second most overall behind the Corvette at 11.


At Graff Chevrolet Durand, we’re really excited about the 50th Anniversary Edition Chevrolet Camaro. But if you can’t wait until its official launch or you’re looking for a more practical ride this summer, visit our dealership and let one of our experts help find the right vehicle for you. Have you been debating between buying and leasing vehicle? We broke down the pros and cons of each option on our Buying Vs. Leasing page.

DURAND, Mich. – Since 2005 Chevrolet has partnered with Major League Baseball (MLB), offering sponsorship and support to major and minor league baseball teams, as well as baseball at the youth level in communities across the country. Last week it was announced that Chevrolet will continue its Major League Baseball sponsorship. They will continue to be the Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball and also become the Official Automotive Sponsor of MLB. Chevy will also continue to support USA Baseball’s Play Ball initiative.
Chevrolet will continue its Major League Baseball Sponsorship
The Play Ball initiative is an effort to promote baseball and softball activities among youth across the country. It includes local events throughout the year, as well as an inaugural Play Ball Weekend that took place on May 14 and 15. Although Chevy’s relationship with the Play Ball initiative is rather young, its commitment to youth baseball is not. Since 2006 Chevy has supported youth baseball through the Chevy Youth Baseball program. Teams who participate in the Chevy Youth Baseball program receive equipment, sponsorship checks, and fundraising opportunities, as well as instructional clinics and MLB experiences.

Chevrolet will continue its Major League Baseball Sponsorship

The announcement that Chevrolet will continue its Major League Baseball Sponsorship shows the continuation of Chevy’s commitment to communities across America.

10 Things to be Happy About Right Now - 05/18/2016

DURAND, Mich. – Sometimes you just feel a little blue and you don’t really know why. At Graff Chevrolet in Durand we think it's important to remember that there is always something to be happy about, so we’ve compiled a list of 10 things to be happy about right now. It can be tough to make it through a long work week but hopefully we can remind you that even the little things in life are a reason to smile.

Good food
Does it really even need to be stated? Your favorite meal or snack is always something to be happy about. What’s your comfort food? What’s your cheat snack or favorite restaurant? Indulge yourself and don’t feel bad about it.

Coffee
Need we say more? Sometimes a pick-me-up is just what you need to get through a long afternoon. Whether it’s a five-dollar latte from your favorite café, or a plain cup of joe from the pot, let the caffeine comfort you.

10 Things to be Happy About Right Now

Visiting new places
Know that home will always be there waiting. Even if it’s just a new restaurant around the corner, sometimes it takes leaving your comfort zone to realize what you already have.

Your favorite pen
Something so simple is easy to take for granted. Bask in the glory that is a smooth-writing ball-point and remember all the times you had to use a sub-par writing utensil. 

Dogs
Or cats, whatever does it for you. Animals are great stress relievers and great friends. Do you really want a human to listen to your crazy rants? Dogs are judgment free. (We're not so sure about cats, but like we said, whatever floats your boat.)

10 Things to be Happy About Right Now

That what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Seriously, take a second to think about this. You’ve survived everything up until this point, haven’t you? If that’s not something to celebrate then what is?

Nice weather
Whatever “nice” means for you, when your favorite weather rolls around take advantage of it! Maybe that means going for a swim at the lake or building a snowman, either way appreciate it.

10 Things to be Happy About Right Now

Knowing the words to an old song
And unashamedly belting out the lyrics. Go ahead and sing that classic rock song and you be proud about it! On another note, be happy that your memory works well enough to recall the lyrics to your old favorites.

Warm clothes from the dryer
And the smell. The smell of fresh laundry is heavenly. Put on a cozy, clean, warm sweatshirt and it’s game over.

Realizing that there are far better things ahead than any you’ve left behind.
No matter where life takes you keep moving forward and always remember to laugh.

Customizable color options
The Grand Sport is fully customizable inside and out. With ten exterior colors to choose from, everyone can find the best option to personalize their style. A collector’s edition will be available later in the year, highlighting the Watkins Glen Gray Metallic exterior color palette, and the exclusive Tension Blue full leather and suede interior.

Performance
Thanks to the aerodynamic design of the Grand Sport, the track performance is unprecedented. It is estimated to offer 1.05g in cornering capability, 0-60-mph in 3.6 seconds, and quarter-mile capability in 11.8 seconds reaching 118 mph. It also features an updated version of the Brembo braking system from the previous Corvette Z06.
