The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is built to be tough and capable, but this model also has some intelligent design options to make your ride more enjoyable. From this model’s bold exterior to its sleek interior, you won’t believe you’re in a pickup when you get behind the wheel. With tons of cab configurations and options to choose from, the new Chevy Silverado 1500 design can cater to your every need.
The Chevy Silverado 1500 design is rarely discussed because of this model’s impressive performance, safety, and technology. Nonetheless, the exterior is carefully crafted to be sporty and bold, with a sculpted hood, wide stance, and distinct Chevy badging. According to Chevy, a muscular front-end also conveys this model’s capabilities in a single glance.
The interior is also designed to be stylish and comfortable. The doors are made with a triple-seal system to keep out noise and air, and an aerodynamic windshield reduces the sound of rushing air. Plus, with the dual-resilient foam seats, you’ll stay comfortable for longer. There are also steering-wheel mounted controls for ease of access, and a Driver Information Center lets you easily set cruise control and other safety features.
The Silverado design is also intelligent. USB ports and a 110-volt outlet are strategically placed so you always have somewhere to charge your electronic devices. Also, ergonomic seating for up to six makes sure everyone has space for long trips.
These are just some of the many great design features that make the Silverado 1500 truly stand out.
The 5th Annual Amesbury Chevy Classic Car Show was a great success. In mid-July, auto enthusiasts from around the area brought their classic cars to put them on display. Proceeds from the event went to support the American Cancer Society, specifically the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer campaign.
This Classic Car Show event featured some unforgettable cars, including hot rods, classic muscle cars, and more. The event ran from 11am to 4pm, with music, food, and prizes offered. All car enthusiasts were invited, not just Chevy owners, and the models were judged in four different categories: Best Classic, Best Truck, Best Import, and Best in Show.
“It’s a fun summertime event to give our staff and all our guests a fun day,” said our General Sales Manager Justin Fecteau.
Amesbury Chevrolet also had a raffle to give away prizes like certificates for free oil changes, car detailing, business gift certificates, and more. Food was provided by The American BBQ, helping to increase the turnout thanks to their good eats.
This car show is one of many events we here at Amesbury love to put on. The proceeds always go to a great cause, and this show helps to bring our community closer together. We can’t wait until next year’s Amesbury Chevy Classic Car Show.
Summer is our favorite time of the year for a number of reasons. The beautiful warm weather. Grilling hot dogs and hamburgers. But perhaps our favorite thing about summer is baseball! Few things are more American than a nice game of baseball, our favorite sport. Since we have such a passion for baseball, we here at Amesbury Chevrolet thought we would channel that passion into doing something helpful for our community. That is why Amesbury Chevrolet is a proud sponsor of the Amesbury Little League!
Not only are they learning how to play baseball, but these players are also learning important lessons about teamwork and cooperation. That is why the staff at Amesbury Chevrolet is so passionate about sponsoring the Amesbury Little League: to help the youth in our community learn and grow.
No matter how old the players you are rooting for are, we hope that you enjoy the baseball season here in Amesbury.
Amesbury, Massachusetts, is a city that is proud of is long and established history. However, Amesbury becomes even more passionate about its history around the Fourth of July. Independence Day is not only a big deal for the people of Amesbury, but the New England area as a whole. In fact, the Fourth of July marks a celebration in Amesbury known as Amesbury Days.
A block party on June 23 marked the kickoff event of Amesbury Days, where community members in the Amesbury area gathered to celebrate the town we all call home. On June 25, Amesbury celebrated the citywide favorite fruit during the Strawberry Festival. One of our favorite events, the car show, took place the next day on June 26.
However, the real showstopper of the festival is the magnificent fireworks display. This year, the fireworks show will take place on Sunday, July 3. The show will also be accompanied by music.
Show your support and passion for the city of Amesbury by participating in this year’s Amesbury Days! What’s your favorite part?
Since 2005, Chevrolet has been a major sponsor for Major League Baseball. Now, Chevrolet & Major League Baseball (MLB) are continuing their partnership as Chevrolet will once again be the Official Vehicle Partner and also becomes the Official Automotive Sponsor for MLB.
In addition, Chevrolet will be supporting the USA Baseball’s Play Ball initiative. This program, which is entering its second season, encourages participation in baseball and softball programs aimed at kids of all ages.
“Providing young people with more access and opportunities to play baseball is an important priority for us,” said Noah Garden, MLB Executive Vice President, Business, in a statement. “Chevy’s commitment to youth baseball aligns perfectly with the goals of Play Ball. This renewal displays an ever-increasing commitment to our partnership and to youth baseball players all over the country.”
The Play Ball program goes hand in hand with Chevy’s own Chevy Youth Baseball program, which it started in 2006. Participating youth baseball programs get equipment, sponsorship checks, fundraising opportunities, and unique Major and Minor League Baseball experiences and clinics. Over the past 10 years, Chevrolet & Major League Baseball have donated more than 90,000 equipment kits, renovated 9,400 parks, and helped more than 5.2 million kids enjoy baseball.

Road trip safety is a big deal whether you’re driving cross-country with your buddies all summer or driving your family a few hours to your favorite vacation spot. Being prepared and following these tips is the best way to keep your road trip from turning into a bust.
Road Trip Safety Tips for Your Car
Before you leave, have your car inspected and stock it up with emergency items like a spare tire, tools, and a first aid kit. Make sure you have plenty of non-perishable snacks like granola bars along with water and a change of clothes. Since it’s summer, it’s a good idea to pack something that will cool you off, like a battery-powered fan.
Road Trip Safety Tips for Yourself
Try not to take long trips alone unless you have to, and make your companions take a few legs of the drive. Being well-rested is essential on long drives, so get a good night sleep the night before and take breaks every few hours.
Drive cautiously, and do what you can to avoid heavy traffic areas during busy times. Not only is this a more dangerous time to drive, but it will frustrate you and add time to your trip!

Warmer weather means that there will be more pedestrians, more animals, and more bicyclists on the road. Sharing the road with bikes can be dangerous, especially if you do not know how to handle the situation. Driving alongside bicyclists is easy, as long as you take the necessary precautions.
Be Careful When Driving Alongside Bicyclists
According to Edmunds, one of the biggest dangers is that drivers often fail to understand a bike rider’s vulnerability. For example, a bike tends to be four thousand pounds lighter than the average car in the US. Plus, our brains often fail to recognize that bikes are smaller than cars; this can lead to driver’s cutting off bicyclists that they don’t see, or it can cause them to tailgate closer than intended. Always leave a little extra room for bikes.
Turning right is also dangerous when there are bikes on the road. An added blind spot you will have is behind you and to the right. If a bike decides to go straight as you turn right, a collision could occur. Always check this blind spot when turning.
Finally, many drivers need to adjust their attitudes towards bicyclists. As long as riders are over the age of 10, they are considered vehicles. That means they have to ride on the road, and they must obey traffic laws. Treat bikes as equals on the road, and be sure to have patience.
