In 1911, Chevrolet released its first vehicle. Now, after 100 years and more than 211 million cars and trucks sold, Chevrolet has cemented itself as one the premier automakers in the world. However, there’s more to Chevrolet than its vehicles. To give you an idea of why Chevrolet is one of the most celebrated and respected names in the automotive industry, here is a look at a few of the components that comprise the world-famous Bowtie brand:
- Racing Success
As long as Chevrolet has been making quality passenger vehicles, it has also been a fixture in the International motorsports arena. With seven class trophies at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, eight trophies at the Indy 500, and a record 35 NASCAR Sprint Cup Manufacturers’ Championships, Chevrolet is one of the most successful brands in the racing world.
- Technological Innovation
When Chevrolet introduced their Small Block engine in 1955, it started a wave of technological innovation that influenced the entire automotive industry. Fortunately, the same spirit of technological innovation that drove Chevrolet in 1955 still drives the Bowtie brand to this day. From the 323-horsepower Camaro LFX V6 engine that offers an EPA-estimated 30 mpg on the highway to the fuel-efficient and fun-to-drive 1.4-liter turbocharged ECOTEC four-cylinder inside the Sonic, the Chevrolet brand continues to raise the bar for the rest of the automotive industry.
- Eco-Friendly Practices
From the iconic Camaro to the legendary Corvette, Chevrolet has long been known for its high-performance vehicles. Fortunately, Chevrolet’s approach to the environment is just as ambitious. Through various environmental programs and initiatives, Chevrolet aims to reduce up to 8 million metric tons of carbon dioxide from the air over the next few years.
