Hello my name is Alice. I live in broken Arrow Oklahoma which is a part of the Tulsa metro. I really like the Chevy PPV. I think it is super sexy and subdued at the same time. Makes a nice looking sleep or if you think about that. And I need a nice powerful car to pull a trailer with my wheelchair. And I don’t need over a class one hitch so it’s more than capable. I live in a hilly area so I definitely want to get the V8 model. There’s nothing wrong with the V6 models except we live in an area that it would be under powered wall pulling a trailer. So I’m increasing the power to weight ratio to increase fuel economy. Also I just prefer a Real Will Dr., V8 cars. I hope to get to know you soon enough and look forward to talking.

I still don’t have a car yet. But I’m hoping to find a 2011 to 2013 at PPV. I like the ones with the consul shift that’s why I’m going with the PPV and not the detective unit. I also want to get us a consul in it for holding things like my CB radio scanner and all that kind of goodies.

Sincerely: Alice P Arthington

Alice, Welcome!

Note that the post-'13 PPVs had the 'octo-arm' gear shifter, as I call them, since they sprouted out of the dash to the right of the steering wheel. That freed up all the space between the front seats for more equipment. They still have the panel there, but the front left corner is not taken up by the shifter. That may give you more room. I really like the floor shifter in our '12, and while I'm slowly collecting G8 console parts, starting to contemplate actually installing it.
