If 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.
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.
Pretend You Are a Bear
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.
If you want to give the ultimate gift for the holidays, why not give the gift of Chevy? Here are some of the top Chevy car gifts you can give this season.
2018 Chevy Traverse
The Chevy Traverse is redesigned for the 2018 year, making it the ideal innovative gift for the holidays. Not only does the Traverse have a new, sharp style for this year, but it also keeps that same remarkable seating for up to eight. The redesigned Traverse is the perfect car gift for any bustling family.
2018 Chevy Trax
Do you know an adventure-lover? The 2018 Chevy Trax will be perfect for them. This affordable crossover is packed with versatility, with an amazing all-wheel drive performance. The interior of the Trax is versatile as well, with eight different seating arrangements that make it ideal for any adventure.
2018 Chevy Silverado
The 2018 Chevy Silverado is the ultimate rugged truck. This pickup has incredible power, with the Sivlerado 1500 boasting a towing capacity of up to 12,500 pounds. Multiple engine options give you what you want and need, and a V8 engine delivers 420 horsepower. The Silverado is perfect for hard workers.

Chevrolet’s Silverado pickup lineup will be getting some new additions for the 2019 model year. Chevrolet has announced that two new medium-duty Chevrolet trucks will be released in late 2018.
These trucks will be Class 4 and 5 medium-duty chassis trucks and will be called the Silverado 4500 and 5500. They will be available in both 4×4 and 4×2 configuration and offer a choice of regular and crew cabs. Just like the rest of the Silverado lineup, the new trucks will offer a range of GVWRs and wheelbases.
In the announcement, Chevrolet said these new trucks will use a Duamax turbo-diesel engine paired with an Allision transmission. Fleet managers will also appreciate the option of OnStar with 4G LTE Wi-Fi, which will help them stay connected with drivers to improve productivity and safety.
John Schwegman, U.S. director of Chevrolet Commercial Product, said, “The Silverado 4500 and 5500 will stand out because we’ve designed the trucks around how customers work. They will be powerful, highly maneuverable and among the easiest trucks on the market to upfit with specialized bodies, such as dump bodies, rollbacks, freight boxes and more.”
Here at Amesbury Chevrolet, we are excited to see what these new medium-duty Chevrolet trucks will be able to do.

Another benefit to servicing your car at Amesbury Chevrolet is that we offer plenty of quick service options. Since we have professional tools and equipment, we can probably get the job done quicker than you could do it yourself.

Trucks are great vehicles to own, aren’t they? Unfortunately, owning a truck, like the Chevrolet Silverado, has some downsides as well. It turns out owning a truck isn’t all fun and games. We here at Amesbury Chevy have a few reasons why you shouldn’t get a Chevrolet Silverado.
Friends and family are likely to ask you if you can help them move simply because you have a capable truck. Unfortunately, you’ll probably gain a little weight due to all the free “Thank you” pizza.
A truck is great for enjoying the outdoors and nature as a whole, but it comes at a cost. Spending all that time outside could result in sunburns.
If there’s one thing no driver wants to do, it’s spend more money. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what will happen if you head to IKEA. The versatility and capability of the new Chevrolet Silverado will result in you buying more stuff simply because you don’t have to pay for delivery.
Owning a truck might mean you end up working more thanks in part to the number of doors the capability opens. Those short on cash could find themselves putting their truck to work plowing roads and helping friends with delivery.
Washing the Truck
Heading off-road will only lead to a messy truck, which means you’ll have to wash it once you return home from a day on the trails. Other fun outdoor activities, like mudding, are best done in a truck and will only make more of a mess.
