FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CHICAGO (February 6, 2014) – Chevrolet brought two new vehicles to the 2014 Chicago Auto Show Media Preview: the 2015 City Express and the 2015 Silverado HD CNG Bi-Fuel. Chevy also introduced a special edition of the Corvette Stingray.

Chevrolet introduced the all-new 2015 City Express, a cargo van that was designed with small- and large-business owners in mind. It features 122.7 cubic feet of customizable cargo space, an engine with 131 horsepower and a center console that functions like a mobile office. The touch screen radio and navigation system will also impress consumers. The 2015 Chevrolet City Express is expected to go on sale in the fall of 2014 with pricing information available later this year.

“The 2015 City Express is a cost efficient alternative to a smaller sized van,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president of GM Fleet and Commercial.

Chevrolet also revealed the all-new 2014 Corvette Stingray. The sleek, two-door model will be featured in the upcoming movie “Captain American: The Winter Soldier”.

“There is nothing like a press conference to announce our partnership with Marvel Studios and their new movie,” said Tim Mahoney, global chief marketing officer, who discussed Chevrolet’s presence in the film.

Chevrolet finished off with the introduction of the all-new 2015 Silverado HD CNG Bi-Fuel. The four-door truck will be able to run on both gasoline and compressed natural gas. With CNG currently priced about 62 percent less per gallon than gasoline, a work truck driven 26,000 miles a year can save more than $2,000 annually based on 75-percent CNG usage and comparable efficiency to gasoline. Dealers are now taking orders for the 2015 Silverado HD CNG Bi-Fuel, and the price is said to be cost efficient.

“These vehicles demonstrate our bringing the right technologies to the market to meet the needs of our consumers and to fulfill the promise of the Chevrolet brand,” said Mahoney.
