2013 CHEVY RIDE AND DRIVE EVENT RECAP: Angel Shelton from Rockcastle County High School sponsored by Jack Burford Chevrolet was the winner! The Kentucky Select Chevy Dealers capped off another great year of the Drive 4 Perfection program with a tremendous evening. Most importantly over $70,000 was raised for the 31 participating high schools throug the program this year! There were over 900 students who achieved 98% or better attendance this year!
The Chevy Drive for Perfection program is designed for Kentucky Select Chevy Dealers to forge relationships with high school seniors, parents, teachers, PTA's and school districts. Chevy Drive for Perfection targets high school seniors and provides additional incentive for seniors to finish their high school careers strong in order to adequately prepare for post-secondary education and/or the workforce.
High school seniors are informed of the Chevy Drive for Perfection program at the beginning of the school year. Seniors have a chance to win a brand new 2013 Chevy Cruze or 2013 Chevy Sonic at the end of the school year if they have 98% or better attendance with NO unexcused absences.
2013 Chevrolet Cruze
Cruze is designed to fit seamlessly into your ever-evolving life - from its increased efficiency that makes every drop of fuel count, to its compact price tag for an unexpectedly uncompact car. Your wallet is going to thank you.
Conventional compact wisdom is challenged with one simple word: more. All around, it's more of what your life needs. And with the Cruze Eco model offers 42 MPG - the best highway mileage of any gas engine in America.
Start building your own 2013 Cruze now, and then find us on Facebook and Twitter to join the conversation. More information will be available soon, but for now take a look at some of the key features for 2013 Cruze:
Up to 42 MPG highway with the Cruze Eco
10 standard air bags to help keep you protected
Distinct acoustical treatments to create a serene interior experience
The 2013 Chevrolet Sonic is all-new
Buyers will be able to choose between a sedan or four-door hatchback body style as well as two different four-cylinder engines that drive the front wheels. The base 1.8-liter will produce 135 horsepower and 123 pound-feet of torque, while a 1.4-liter turbocharged alternative will make 138 hp and 148 lb-ft. A five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission will be offered for the 1.8-liter engines, but the 1.4 turbo will only be available with a six-speed manual. Fuel economy numbers, unfortunately, weren't available at the time of this writing.
Power output puts the Sonic on top of the competition and its handling also has class-leading potential since the suspension has been tuned by the same engineers who worked their magic on the Corvette. Styling is likely to be a hit as well, with the hatchback getting an aggressive edge over the more sedate sedan. Inside, the cockpit is modern and fresh, with the large tachometer and offset digital readout attracting most of the attention.
Chevrolet is also quick to point out that the Sonic sedan is the most capacious in this class and the rear seats are roomier than the Ford Fiesta's. Options will likely include heated front seats, remote ignition and a sunroof.
