Chevrolet FNR-X Concept

 

Chevrolet abandoned the original FNR concept shortly after the 2015 Shanghai Auto Show, but it wasn’t gone for long. The American brand brought the new and improved FNR-X concept to the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show not long ago. Featuring a hybrid powertrain, the sport-inspired crossover truly is the vehicle of the future.

 

 

The “all-purpose sports concept” offers an adjustable ride height and wheel blades designed to automatically adjust to reduce drag at high speeds. Not all of the technologies are futuristic though; active grille shutters are available on numerous vehicles, just like the Chevrolet Colorado mid-size pickup.

 

The Chevrolet FNR-X concept features two driving modes, Versatility and Sport, which are capable of adjusting the ride height and performance of the hybrid powertrain. Optical and acoustic recognition sensors are littered around the vehicle to optimize the autonomous driver suite’s performance.

 

Inside, the FNR-X concept features plenty of advanced technologies, like an augmented reality heads-up display. Ambient lighting changes according to which driving mode is selected and a graphene-inspired trim sets the tone for the future of the industry as a whole.

 

While there’s no official word on a production schedule or release date, the updated FNR-X concept seems ready to roll. We here at DeLillo Chevrolet are looking forward to see what the future has in store for the FNR-X concept!

Summer Car Maintenance Tips

Follow our summer car maintenance tips so you can have great adventures in your Chevy all year long!

Taking care of your car is a year-round job, but summer maintenance is by far the most important, especially for warmer climates. From what’s under the hood to the interior, there’s quite a few steps to getting your car operating at peak performance for the summer months. Here are some helpful summer car maintenance tips from us here at DeLillo Chevrolet.

Tires

Take the time to give your tires a good look before taking to the road on any trips. Tires that have low tread won’t have enough traction to ensure you can drive safely on any road conditions. Keep an eye out for any abnormalities like bulges or cuts. Make sure the tires are properly inflated to the manufacturer-suggested pressure as well. It wouldn’t hurt to pick stones and other debris out of the tread either.

Air Filter

Clean cabin air is important to many drivers, even if they don’t think about it. Your cabin air filter likely needs to be changed as summer rolls around, assuming it wasn’t changed in spring. On the bright side, air filters are fairly inexpensive and you can replace them yourself.

Coolant

An improper level of coolant or old coolant could lead to an overheated engine once summer arrives. Take the time to flush old coolant and replace it. Check the hoses for any holes or wear and tear.
