One of the most exciting points in any teenager’s life is getting their drivers license. However, this can also be the most dangerous time of their life, too. Studies have shown that teens are more likely to speed and play loud music, and are less likely to wear their seatbelts. To help combat these unsafe driving habits, Chevrolet created Teen Driver Technology.
Teen Driver is standard on many new family-friendly Chevy
models including the Equinox, Malibu, Silverado 1500, Colorado, Cruze, and Bolt
EV. This technology can help encourage safe driving habits even when parents
are not in the car.
When activated, Teen Driver allows parents to set certain
driving limits around speed and volume, and ensure all active driving features
stay turned on. The Buckle to Drive feature mutes the audio system until
front-seat occupants are buckled. It also prevents the driver from shifting out
of park for 20 seconds and provides both audible and visual alerts.
Parents can also check on their teen’s progress with the
in-vehicle report card. This shows information such as the distance driven, how
many overspeed warnings received, wide open throttles, forward collision
alerts, and other key warnings. You program Teen Driver to work with a specific
key. When that key is used, it will automatically enable the Teen Driver

The 2019 Camaro ZL1 1LE is all-new and ready to wow both
drivers and passengers. The ZL1 1LE is the fastest Camaro yet, making it fit
for any race track.
It comes with a ten-speed automatic transmission that
delivers smooth transitions through gears. This innovative transmission comes
with a powerful, supercharged 6.2-liter LT4 V8 engine that delivers 650
horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque.
Camaro Chief Engineer Mark Dickens, says, “This transmission is optimized for speed. With unique Track Mode calibrations and 10 gears, you are always in the perfect gear when rolling on or off the throttle. You may not be a professional race car driver, but now you can shift like one.”
The ZL1 1LE’s new automatic transmission helps drivers go
several seconds faster on laps than the previous six-speed manual ZL1 1LE.
Engineers made exterior changes as well to improve the
Camaro ZL1 1LE’s aerodynamics. The front fascia sports air deflectors and dive
planes that produce downforce to help the ZL1 1LE grip the road around turns
while lightweight forged aluminum wheels weigh less while still improving grip

Chevrolet has debuted a convenient new feature in the myChevrolet mobile app called Vehicle Locate, which lets Chevy owners send automated text alerts to a designated person or group of people when their vehicle gets to or leaves a certain address or boundary area.
The Vehicle Locate feature was designed to keep drivers
safer and give their loved ones peace of mind. Whether you’re going on a blind
date and want to send alerts on your whereabouts or you’re lending your car to
a friend and want to keep tabs on its location, Vehicle Locate can help.
Parents especially can get added comfort with this feature.
Teens can be forgetful about sending updates to their parents, but with
Chevrolet Vehicle Locate, their smartphone can automatically notify their
parents when they arrive at school, work, a friend’s house — you name it.
The app can notify up to 10 people for every pre-programmed
address or boundary of up to a 20-mile radius the user wants to send alerts
for, but don’t worry — you won’t be getting any unwanted messages. You have to agree
to receive the notifications.
The feature also keeps track of the vehicle’s location at
all times, so drivers can easily navigate to where their car or truck is in
crowded parking lots or at meters on city side streets. Never get lost looking
for your car again.
But what about locating your dream vehicle at a dealership? That’s where we come in. At Copeland Chevrolet, our friendly and expertly trained staff will help you find the car that fits your needs perfectly.
