Celebrating “12 Ways” You’ll Love a New Chevy with McCarthy


The holidays are a time of tradition and nostalgia. Here at your hometown Kansas City Chevy dealer, McCarthy Morse Chevrolet, we are reminded of the beloved song “The 12 Days of Christmas.” This whimsical tune with its “partridge in a pear tree,” “10 lords a-leaping,” and “eight maids a milking,” elicits a smile from young and old this time of year.

This delightful Christmas standard got us thinking about the many reasons our customers love their Chevy cars and trucks. So we compiled “12 ways” you’ll love a new Chevrolet, regardless of the season.

  1. You’ll Love the Value

Everybody loves saving money. And at McCarthy Morse Chevrolet you’ll find a wide selection of affordably priced Chevy vehicles that give you exceptional value for your dollar. Take the affordable, well-equipped Chevy Sonic, for example. Designed for today’s crowded urban landscape, the Sonic gives you lots more than you would expect, such as available 4G LTE Wi-Fi, Chevy MyLink infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen, 47.7 cubic feet of highly flexible cargo space, and lively performance. The available 1.4-liter turbo engine delivers 138 hp and an EPA-estimated 40 mpg. With a starting MSRP of just $14,345, the Sonic is a lot of fun to drive at a price you can afford.

  1. You’ll Delight in the Technology

Chevrolet engineers incredible cutting-edge technology into every Chevy car and truck. Chevy is the first automaker to offer OnStar® 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity for up to seven devices. But that’s just the beginning. Chevy MyLink is a full-featured suite of connectivity, entertainment, and communication capabilities that put you in command of today’s modern, connected world like never before. A 7-inch diagonal touchscreen controls audio, Internet apps, wireless smartphone Bluetooth® hands-free dialing, and more. Plus, Chevy’s available RemoteLink (powered by OnStar) is a unique smartphone app that lets you lock and unlock your car, remotely start your car, get driving directions, and schedule service appointments from your mobile device.

  1. You’ll be Amazed by the Luxury

There’s nothing cut-rate about Chevy cars and trucks. Premium materials like available leather seating with contrast stitching, attractive brush chrome accents, spacious head and legroom, jewel-like instrument clusters, library-like quiet, and perks such as available heated power front seats and a panoramic moonroof are just some of the many ways Chevy pampers you.

  1. You’ll Appreciate the Convenience

Ergonomics is just another word for making your daily drive as comfortable and convenient as possible. Chevy designers pay meticulous attention to making each button or dial intuitive and easy to use. Steering wheel-mounted controls let you command a variety of key functions, such as hands-free dialing, with your fingertips. One-touch power windows, smart key fob with push-button start/stop, split 60/40 rear seats, and generous storage space add to your driving pleasure.

  1. You’ll be Thrilled by the Performance

Born and bred on the world’s racetracks and brought to your personal driveway, Chevy’s legendary powerplants take performance to a new level of exhilaration. For the ultimate thrill ride, the spectacular 2016 Chevy Corvette’s V8 pumps out a fantastic 460 horsepower. Taking pulse-quickening excitement to an even higher level, the Corvette Z06 churns out an otherworldly 650 horsepower with track-tested 0-to-60 in a mind-boggling 2.95 seconds.


Defining the essence of the true muscle car, the superlative 2016 Chevy Camaro’s available high-performance V8 creates an impressive 455 horsepower of brute force. But you don’t have to own a Corvette or a Camaro to experience the power you crave. A case in point is the beautiful new 2016 Chevy Cruze. The Cruze’s standard 1.4-liter ECOTEC® turbocharged four-cylinder engine gives you a spirited 153-hp and 177 lb. ft. of torque to get you out in front of the pack.

  1. You’ll Go Further with Great Fuel Economy

Not only does Chevy deliver performance, but it also delivers exceptional fuel economy across its lineup. The miserly Chevy Cruze’s turbocharged engine gets an exceptional EPA-estimated 40 mpg highway. The same numbers apply to the 2016 Chevy Sonic. And the city-smart Chevy Trax crossover gets you 34 mpg highway.

  1. You’ll Be Impressed by the Innovation

To be sure, Chevy’s gasoline-powered engines deliver both performance and fuel economy. But Chevy’s forward-thinking engineers take innovation to a new level of futuristic advancement, making a bold statement with an array of hybrid and plug-in electric vehicles. Leading the way is the remarkable Chevy Volt. Not only does the 2016 Chevy Volt display sleek, aerodynamic styling, but it also achieves amazing mileage numbers. You can drive it for up to 53 miles on purely electrical power alone. When combined with the Volt’s gas-powered generator, you get a range of 420 miles. The Chevy Volt also lets you go up to 1,000 miles between fill-ups when you regularly charge your Volt’s batteries.

  1. You’ll Be Dazzled by the Style

No doubt about it, when you cast your gaze on a Chevy, you’ll marvel at the style and sophistication. From the iconic, world-class 2016 Chevy Corvette and the legendary 2016 Camaro to the completely redesigned 2016 Chevy Cruze and the boldly rugged and all-new 2016 Chevy Silverado, you’ll be the center of attention when you pull up in your beautiful, artfully designed, and contemporary Chevy. From the worksite to the country club, Chevy cars and trucks are a sight to behold.

  1. You’ll Love the Feeling of Safety

At Chevrolet, nothing is more important that ensuring the ultimate safety for yourself and your passengers. For this reason, Chevy engineers overachieve to create some of the safest cars on the road today. Let’s start with Chevy’s long list of active and passive protective technology. Ten standard airbags, a high-strength safety cage, anti-lock brakes with electronic brake force distribution, StabiliTrak® with Traction Control, Side Blind Zone Alert, Front Collision Alert, Lane Keep Assist, Rear Park Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and Rearview camera. In case of an accident, the available OnStar® automatic crash response system is there when you need it; connecting you to emergency responders. These are just some of the reasons why Chevy vehicles continue to receive some of the highest industry safety ratings.

  1. You’ll Applaud the Accolades

Chevy isn’t shy about “tooting its own horn.” Chevrolet is justly proud that its entire lineup of cars and trucks are some of the most awarded and recognized vehicles in the automotive industry. Industry associations and automotive pundits heap praise upon Chevy’s remarkable track record. lists the Chevy Sonic as one of its “10 most affordable cars.” And the Chevy Sonic gets the nod from KBB as one of the “10 coolest cars under $18,000.” The plush and luxurious Chevy Malibu gets J.D. Power and Associate’s award as the “The Most Dependable Midsize Car For 2015.” We could go on, of course, but we think you get the point.

  1. You’ll Salute the Warranty

Chevrolet stands behind each car and truck that it sells. Chevy’s excellent warranty gives you the peace of mind that you are not only driving a car of superior quality but one that will last you mile after mile after mile. Cast worry aside with a 3-year/36,000-mile comprehensive warranty, whichever comes first. Chevy also warranties its powertrain for 5 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. But that’s not all. Chevy also covers all sheetmetal for 3 years or 36,000 miles and gives you excellent rust protection that lasts the first 6 years or 100,000 miles.

You also get 2 years/24,000 miles of scheduled maintenance coverage, available courtesy transportation coverage on select models, and 5 years of 24/7 emergency roadside assistance.

  1. You’ll Love the Value of Certified Pre-Owned

When you purchase a Chevrolet Certified Vehicle, you can buy with confidence. Each Certified Chevy must undergo a rigorous process to ensure that it meets the strictest quality standards. It begins with a thorough 172-point inspection and reconditioning process that covers the major powertrain components, as well as the suspension, interior items, electrical, air conditioning and heating, and more. Everything from switches to the drivetrain receives inspection from factory-trained technicians. Cosmetic issues, no matter how minor, are addressed. Your Certified Chevy is then ready to be put on the lot in “like new” condition only after this stringent process is complete.

But there are more reasons why buying a Certified Pre-Owned Chevy is such a great value. You also get a free vehicle history report, a three-month trial of SiriusXM® Radio and OnStar®, and a 12-month/12,000 mile warranty with the option to purchase additional warranty coverage. If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, you can return the vehicle after three days or 150 miles. You also receive two years or 24,000 miles of scheduled maintenance.
