Chevrolet Launches Call Me Out App To Discourage Distracted Driving

Chevrolet is launching a new smartphone app that takes aim at distracted driving. This app encourages drivers to leave their phone alone while operating a vehicle. Unlike all the other new smartphone apps being launched daily, Chevy’s Call Me Out app could save your life.

In 2016, distracted driving claimed 3,450 lives in the US, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. There isn’t enough data available to prove how many of those cases involved the use of cell phones by drivers. In efforts to help reduce these statistics, Chevrolet hosted a hackathon, challenging college students to propose ways of reducing distracted driving. The framework for the Call Me Out app evolved from this effort.

“As the father of two daughters, I am keenly aware of all the perils that my children face out in the world on a daily basis, and that is why it is so important for GM and Chevrolet to offer technologies that help all of us become safer drivers,” said Alan Batey, president of GM North America and head of Global Chevrolet. “With Call Me Out we are extending our commitment beyond the technologies integrated into GM and Chevy vehicles and are making the app available for Android phone users who drive other vehicle makes and models in an effort to help people change their driving behavior and make our roads safer.”

Here’s how the app works: The Call Me Out app encourages users to enlist friends and family members to record messages, which are then used to remind them to keep their hands off their devices and on the wheel. In addition to the audible message, a graphic of a wagging finger is also displayed on the device. The app uses the phone’s accelerometer and GPS to detect when the phone is being physically picked up while traveling speeds above 5 mph. The app also includes a gaming featuring, with a scoreboard and rankings. The less a phone is handled while driving, the higher the score on the Leaderboard.

The app is currently available as a free download, though only for Android users in the Google Play Store (must be 18 years or older and have a data plan).

It seems that many of us have unfortunately forgotten, or simply given up on, the true meaning of Memorial Day. For many, Memorial Day (formally known as Decoration Day) is known as the “unofficial kick off for Summer.” This is the time of year where the weather seems to be finally warming up and the kids are just finishing their school year. This long weekend is usually used for a chance to get away for a few days or spending time with family having a BBQ.

Did you know that Memorial Day has been celebrated in the United States for almost 150 years? Memorial Day was created as a day dedicated to honor and commemorate all men and women who have died in military services for the United States. It was inspired by the 500,000 deaths of soldiers in the Civil War. To this day, thousands more are willing to risk their lives to protect our rights and freedoms.

Bob Bell Chevrolet proudly offers the men and women who have bravely supported our country with a Military Discount.  This discount is available to Active Duty members, Reservists, National Guard members, Veterans within three years of discharge date and Retirees – including their spouses or designated household members – of the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard.

2018 Chevrolet Equinox: Lean, Mean… and Strong

1495422367510

The all-new Chevrolet Equinox has been completely redesigned for the 2018 model year; a redesign that includes shedding 400 pounds of extra weight! So, what do drivers gain by this 10% body-mass loss? For starters, our most popular crossover is now more agile on the road and offers drivers a more safe, comfortable driving experience.

Thanks to a lighter, stiffer, and stronger structure, the 2018 Equinox rewards drivers in the following areas:

SAFETY: High-strength and ultra-high strength steel creates a safety cage around its passengers, which are complimented by the high-level restraint systems and available safety features.

RIDE & HANDLING: By reducing the chassis flex in the Equinox suspension system, Chevrolet engineers were able to focus more on overall ride comfort and precision on the road.

QUIETNESS & REFINEMENT: The stiffer body-structure of the Equinox also pays off when it comes to blocking out exterior noise and vibrations. Contributing the overall weight loss of the Equinox, the stiffer body-structure also means that engineers could reduce the amount of sound-absorbing materials in the overall design.

FUEL ECONOMY: This might seem like a no-brainer, but we’re pretty excited about this added benefit of the 2018 Equinox! The lower the weight, the better then fuel efficiency. The all-new Equinox delivers EPA estimated 32MPG and 29MPG on the highway with the standard 1.5L turbo and 2.0L turbo engines. The diesel engine offers a GM-estimated 40MPG on the highway.

Like the many models before it, the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox features a modern, expressive design and is equipped with the latest in vehicle connectivity and safety features.

Chevrolet takes the Redline to the next level

Earlier this month at the Chicago Auto Show, Chevrolet announced the Redline special edition trim series across nine of its cars, trucks, and crossovers! Redline first made an appearance as a concept back in 2015 at the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) in Las Vegas and has since become a reality!

cq5dam-web-1280-1280

All models in the Redline series come equipped with unique accent packages: black wheels featuring red lines, black-out grilles, black badges and black Chevy bowtie logos. Depending on the vehicle, individual models will start to differ based on customers’ preferences.

Redline trims will be available to order on the 2017 Cruze Sedan, 2017 Cruze Hatch, 2017 Colorado, 2017 Camaro, 2017 Colorado, 2017 Silverado 1500, 2018 Malibu, 2018 Trax, 2018 Equinox, and 2018 Traverse.

“Our special edition lineup has been popular with customers and dealers, alike” said Chevrolet’s U.S. vice president Brian Sweeney. “Since the introduction of special editions on vehicles the like Silverado and Camaro, vehicle average transaction prices have increased, time to turn has decreased, and conquest rates have risen, which has contributed to making Chevrolet the fastest-growing brand in the industry two years in a row.”
