Ordering a pizza has never been easier thanks to Chevrolet Marketplace technology. Marketplace is a free service offered through connected GM models, which allows you to access services and special deals while you’re on the go. The latest company to team up with Chevy on the Marketplace platform is Domino’s Pizza.
Press Of A Button
According to Chevrolet, the new Marketplace feature allows drivers to order either a saved option or their most recent order with the press of a button. With pre-set preferences, the Marketplace system allows you to pick up a pizza in-store or to have it delivered to your home. That means you could have a hot pizza ready to go by the time you get home from a long day of work.
Commitment To Customers
“We admire Chevy’s commitment to providing the technology that consumers want the most,” said Chris Roeser, director of digital experience at Domino’s. “Now, Marketplace will provide pizza lovers an easy way to order the pizza they love.”
The Domino’s pizza ordering feature is just the latest in a string of convenient connectivity features. For instance, you can also access an in-dash fuel payment system through Marketplace, which lets you apply fuel-savings programs at select gas pumps when you fill-up.
Chevy is truly a leader in the industry when it comes to connectivity. Learn more about all the cool technologies in their vehicles at H&H Chevrolet!
Learning to drive and to go out on our own is one of the first steps we take as teenagers toward real adulthood and independence. But when we are on the other end of this process — as parents — it can be a lot less exciting and a lot more worrying. That’s why Chevrolet came out with its Teen Driver technology several years ago, preventing bad teen driver habits in real time and providing feedback to parents for coaching later.
The newest addition to the technology is called Buckle to Drive, and — you guessed it — it encourages teen drivers to wear their seat belts in order to drive their Chevy vehicle. This feature will be standard on the 2020 Chevrolet Malibu, Traverse, and Colorado.
“Buckle to Drive is Chevrolet’s latest feature designed to encourage young drivers to develop safe driving habits right from the start,” said Tricia Morrow, Chevrolet safety engineer. “Buckle to Drive is embedded in Chevrolet’s Teen Driver system and is aimed at helping remind teens to buckle up every time they get behind the wheel.”
If you are a parent driving one of these vehicles, you must turn on Teen Driver to activate the Buckle to Drive feature. The system will then detect if your teen driver is not wearing their seat belt and will alert the driver when this happens, forcing the driver to put it on before continuing.
Visit H&H Chevy today to check out a vehicle equipped with Chevrolet’s teen-friendly Buckle to Drive technology.
We’ve witnessed the revival of several iconic Chevrolet nameplates, like the Blazer and TrailBlazer — and based on a recent patent filed by Chevrolet, we may be seeing another triumphant return.
Back in March, the automaker reserved the rights to use the Cavalier name on “motor land vehicles, namely automobiles, sport utility vehicles, trucks, vans, engines therefor and structural parts thereof.”
During its run from 1982-2005, the Cavalier was available as a four-door sedan, two-door coupe, two-door convertible, and even a five-door station wagon. While most of these body styles aren’t a big hit with consumers nowadays, it’s possible that the Cavalier could replace the outgoing Chevrolet Cruze — or return as a hatchback, crossover, or SUV.
In the U.S., Chevrolet hasn’t used the Cavalier nameplate since 2005. However, the Cavalier still enjoys a strong presence around the globe — it’s currently sold in China, while in Mexico, the Cavalier recently replaced the Chevrolet Sonic.
Although General Motors denies rumors that it plans to reintroduce the Cavalier to the U.S. market, it wouldn’t be shocking to see this signature sedan make a comeback.
In a recent survey done by AutoList.com, they asked about 1,750 car shoppers three questions. The first question was their age, the second question was what vehicle brand they would purchase now, and the third was what brand they currently own.
After the results were tallied, Chevrolet came out as the preferred brand for both millennials and the younger buyers of Generation Z.
Reason For The Preference
“Chevy is doing a great job of trading on its reputation as a no-nonsense, affordable brand while at the same time adding to its vehicles the stuff younger buyers covet,” said Chase Disher, an analyst at Autolist.com. “This includes things like Wi-Fi hotspots, Apple CarPlay™, and Android Auto™ connectivity, wireless phone charging and an intuitive infotainment system.”
To show that this wasn’t just a fluke, QuoteWizard did its own study and got similar results. The study found that young buyers are drawn to Chevy, in part because of affordable MSRPs. In addition, the Chevrolet Impala was ranked 6 out of 10 as one of the “most popular cars driven by millennials.”

It happens to all of us: we forget where we parked our car, or we forget to text our family member that we arrived at where we said we were going. Luckily, Chevy has a solution for us, as the automaker has just added a convenient new Vehicle Locate feature to its myChevy smartphone app.
The Vehicle Locate feature has two main functions: Firstly, it stores your vehicle’s location when parking, making it so you’re always able to find your vehicle quickly in crowded lots. Secondly, it allows you to set boundary areas. Once you set a boundary area, you can select which family members and friends you’d like the app to automatically send text alerts to, letting them know that you have arrived at or departed from a particular location. For instance, you can set your workplace as a boundary area and automatically let your special someone know when you leave work and are on your way home. Alternatively, you can set your teen driver’s school as a boundary area, making it so you get an automatic alert when they arrive at school.
With the new feature, everyday travel alerts between family members are made effortless, giving you peace of mind that your loved ones have arrived safely at their destinations. Contact us at H&H Chevrolet if you need help with myChevy app’s new Vehicle Locate function or any of its other functions.
Who says an electric car can’t be fast? The Chevrolet eCOPO Camaro concept fuses the performance muscle car enthusiasts want with the eco-friendly efficiency that environmentalists crave. And it can jet down a drag strip in as little as 9 seconds.
In its initial appearance, the electric Chevrolet Camaro tore down a quarter-mile strip in just 10.14 seconds. That was just at 80-percent power though. The engineers behind the electric model knew they could do better.
The electric Chevrolet Camaro concept features a powertrain that generates 700 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque. The instant torque isn’t definitely impressive. After all, how often does a muscle car manage to pop a wheelie off the starting line?
Not only is the concept fast, but it’s also quiet, like most other electric vehicles. The 800-volt system is comprised of four 175-pound batteries located in the rear of the Camaro for enhanced stability.
As electric cars increase in popularity around the world, the electric Chevrolet Camaro concept might make its way to dealership lots in the near future. Stay tuned for more news on this exciting concept car. In the meantime, stop by to take one of our current Chevy Camaro models for a test drive.
Sunday, May 26, 2019, marks the 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500. Proudly carrying the Bowtie Brand of Chevrolet into this premier event of the 2019 IndyCar Series is the two-time Formula 1 champion, Fernando Alonso.
Alonso’s McLaren Racing entry will feature a Chevrolet 2.2-liter twin-turbocharged direct-injected V6 IndyCar engine. The 134 cubic-inch engine has a road-street course horsepower rating of 675 mph. Since returning to the IndyCar series seven seasons back, Chevy’s V6 engines have claimed victories in 73 of 118 races.
Alonso himself has an impressive record with a seven-year win rating of over 70 percent. In addition to his F1 championships in 2005 and 2006, he has claimed 97 podium victories placing him sixth overall in the series. In 2006, Alonso claimed a victory in Monaco and earlier this year he won the grueling 24 Hours of Le Mans. Should he take victory this year in the Indianapolis 500 he would be one of only two racers to ever claim victory in all three of these prestigious races known together as the Triple Crown of Motorsports.
Years of driving experience from Fernando Alonso combined with decades of Chevrolet engineering could see history made at this year’s 2019 Indianapolis 500. If you’re looking for the perfect car to take you to victory on your daily commute, contact us at H&H Chevrolet.
