Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

 

About one in eight women will develop breast cancer over the course of their lifetime. An estimated 266,000 new cases will be diagnosed in 2018 alone. Fortunately, U.S. residents have banded together to help find a cure. Here are two ways you can help Amesbury Chevrolet contribute to this cause.

 

Making Strides

 

The American Cancer Society has been organizing non-competitive “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” walks to raise awareness of breast cancer and raise funds to find a cure. These events occur nationwide, and participating in one is a great way to lend a helping hand and spread education about the severity of the disease. Every cent towards the American Cancer Society brings the organization one step closer toward eradicating breast cancer.

 

Chevy Raffles

 

Amesbury Chevy is proud to fulfill its duty to help fight cancer. The Annual Amesbury Chevy Classic Car Show brings people together to peruse an awesome selection of classic Chevrolets. All proceeds go to the American Cancer Society. Raffle prizes include free car services, gift cards, and more. This event is a positive way to unite the community while raising awareness for breast cancer.

The Chevrolet lineup is about to expand with the highly anticipated arrival of the Chevrolet Blazer. The all-new 2019 Chevy Blazer will be situated between the compact Equinox and the three-row Traverse in the Chevrolet crossover and SUV lineup. It’s expected to arrive at dealerships in early 2019, and will bring some must-see styling and must-have features with it.

HID headlamps, available 20-inch and 21-inch wheels, and trims with bold and unique details create multiple handsome options. The interior is refined and versatile, with premium materials and the useful Chevrolet-first Cargo Management System.

The impressive RS and Premier trims are powered by a standard 305-horsepower, 3.6-liter V6 engine paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Other trims get the 193-horsepower, 2.5-liter 4-cylinder. The Chevy Blazer will be available in all-wheel drive, and thus capable of tackling inclement weather as well as some dirt and gravel roads.

Back to School Car Care Tips

Here are some great back to school care care tips!

 

We know it feels like summer just started, but it is time to start thinking about heading back to school already. If you are a student or teacher and have been enjoying your time off, be sure to plan some back to school car care before that first bell rings.

We now have a Chevy Express Service Center at Amesbury Chevrolet that is designed to make getting service done easier and faster, no appointment needed.

Here are a few tips to get you started.

  • Routine Maintenance. You don’t want to have to worry about oil changes when you should be studying or grading papers. Make sure your car is caught up on all of its routine scheduled maintenance. In addition to oil changes, this includes checks on all fluids, brakes, belts, etc.
  • Tires. Low tire pressure is dangerous and can cause a big dip in your car’s fuel economy. Make sure your tires are properly inflated and have adequate tread depth.
  • Emergency Kit. Be prepared for when an emergency happens with some basic supplies. Keep items like jumper cables, a blanket, a first aid kit, a flashlight, a fully charged spare cell phone, and some non-perishable snacks in your car.

Here at Amesbury Chevrolet, we wish you the best of luck as the new school year begins.

What We Know About the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado

Though it hasn’t been released at dealerships just yet, a lot of information is known about the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado, which starts the exciting next generation of this popular pickup. The new Silverado will be available late this year, but until then here are some things to get you excited for that upcoming release!

Reviews

First-drive reviews have been positive so far, citing the Silverado’s more refined handling, new technology, and the quiet cabin. The Silverado features a 2.7-liter turbocharged engine with tons of power, as well as a dynamic fuel management system that pairs perfectly with the V8 engine options.

Powertrains

The new Silverado will feature six engine options, from value-oriented 4-cylinders and diesel options to two different V8 varieties that provide incredible towing and hauling power. With the Dynamic Fuel Management System mentioned above, the Silverado cuts power to extra cylinders when it doesn’t need them.

More space

The 2019 Silverado is both lighter and longer than the previous generation, growing as much as 3.9 inches and continuing to drop weight thanks to its smarter design and lightweight materials. This gives the backseat an extra three inches of legroom and adds seven inches of width to the bed. Plus, the available power tailgate lets you open and close it with your key fob or from inside the cabin.

Here at Amesbury Chevrolet, we can hardly contain our enthusiasm for the release of this highly-anticipated pickup truck.

Chevy Drops Hints About the 2020 Silverado HD

Chevy is teasing us with their announcement of the 2020 Silverado HD, which will debut next year. The heavy-duty pickup will be big, beastly, and offer formidable capabilities and power. All we have so far is a single image of the truck, and it looks tricked out with tough gear and features.

The automaker has announced that we will be able to see the 2020 Silverado HD vehicle being tested on public roads in the near future. This small tidbit of information is accompanied by the announcement that this vehicle will be produced during the third quarter of 2019 in Flint, Michigan.

Chevrolet’s Teen Driver Technology Reassures Parents

Teen Driver technologyIf you’re the parent of a teenager who can drive or is in the process of getting their driver’s license, then you know how flat-out terrifying it can be to watch them forge their own path behind the wheel. But if you want some extra reassurance, Chevrolet has your back. Many newer Chevy vehicles either come with or have the option of the brand’s new Teen Driver technology. This innovative system allows parents to keep an eye on their teen from a distance.

Statistics show that many teens drive without seatbelts, are more distracted when driving, and speed more – which can make driving a hazardous experience. With Teen Driver, parents can set up their child’s vehicle to send their smartphone alerts when they are driving over a restricted speed, as well as granting them the ability view a vehicle “report card” that tells parents how far a vehicle has traveled. Additionally, volume can be restricted, blocking your young driving from turning up their music over a certain limit.

Chevrolet’s Teen Driver technology grants parents the ability to step back and give their child room to grow in their independence while still taking a hands-on approach to their safety. If you’re interested in the Teen Driver system, come to Amesbury Chevrolet today for more information.

3 Ways to Beat Cold Weather in Your Chevrolet

Look at Pictures of the Beach on Your Phone

First of all, don’t text and drive. But we know what you’re doing. You parked your Chevy Cruze in your driveway, and you don’t want to get out because it’s cold. Well, crank up the heat and idle your Cruze a little longer as you check out this list of the best beaches in Massachusetts. It’ll give you some inspiration for when the air outside doesn’t hurt your face. Also? Bring some hot cocoa along in a thermos tomorrow.

The Chevrolet Traverse is pretty spacious. Spacious enough to hibernate in. Also, remember what I said about the beach next summer? Bears actually lose 40% of their fat while they hibernate, so hibernating is a great way to get beach-ready after the holidays. If you wish you could live that bear life this winter, check out these top ten facts about bears.

Run Away

Did you know that if you get a Chevy Volt and drive straight to Key West, Florida, it will only take 27 hours and you’ll only have to stop for gas four times? Bonus – there is no recorded instance of snowfall in Key West. Ever.
