Don’t Believe Everything They Tell You

Honda Morgan CityAs the way the major polling companies got the UK election result so spectacularly wrong recently proves, we really do need to take what people tell us with a large pinch of salt sometimes. It’s easy for people to say whatever they want when questioned. But what they really do when the times comes for them to put their money where their mouth is, so to speak, it can be an entirely different matter altogether. This doesn’t just apply to votes and elections either; market research can also suffer from erroneous results caused by asking people their views without them having to make any form of commitment.

The Start of Toyota’s Future

Rockwall Toyota Dealer

The Japanese auto giant has been making some pretty bold statements of late, not least its declaration that it doesn’t see all-electric cars as currently being a viable option for sustainable mobility. Such a stance appears to be a prelude to big plans for the future of the brand. A big part of which will be its New Global Architecture, which is a modular platform that’s expected to underpin at least a half of all the automaker’s new models made around the world by 2020. One of the first entirely new models that are part of this big future could be a compact crossover, based on the C-HR concept we saw at the Paris Motor Show last year. If something closely resembling the C-HR does go into production, you can be sure there’ll be no shortage of potential buyers for the guys at Rockwall Toyota Dealer to deal with.

Chevrolet Develops Solution for Overheating Cell Phones

Active Phone Cooling

Overheating cell phones is a real problem, but thankfully Chevrolet thought of that when it designed the 2016 Impala and Malibu. When a device gets too hot, the battery can drain faster and the processor works slower, which are frustrating problems. An industry-first solution is coming to Montpelier Chevrolet Dealer and other locations, in the form of a cooling system.

Although you can still get excellent SUVs like the Explorer and the Expedition from the folks at Ford Jefferson Hills, you can’t get anything quite as big as the Excursion was before it was axed a decade ago.

Chevy Malibu Sheds Weight for 2016

Chevy Santa Ana (10)

It’s not unusual to want to shed a few pounds, but 300 pounds is an awful lot by anyone’s standards, even if you are a car. This particular weight-loss goal has been achieved by the all-new 2016 Malibu, which you’ll be able to buy from the guys at Chevy Santa Ana in the fourth quarter of this year. Although there’s no getting away from the fact that it’s an impressive achievement to reduce the new model’s weight by so much compared to the outgoing car, there’s an awful lot more to the new Malibu than just less weight.
