The goodbye is bittersweet, as Americans have been moving away from sedans and towards SUVs for years now. American drivers are drawn to the versatility, space, smarts, and capabilities of SUVs. GM’s decision, therefore, will likely do nothing but allow the automaker to fine-tune the sedans it continues to offer and focus its attention on the vehicles that American drivers most desire. In addition, GM plans that “resources allocated to electric and autonomous vehicle programs will double in the next two years,” demonstrating its commitment to future automotive innovation.
Are you a proud owner of one of the discontinued sedans? Never fear, as you’ll still be able to have your vehicle serviced and repaired for years to come. Although GM is moving onto more popular segments and innovative electric vehicle technologies, it’ll never abandon its loyal customer base. That’s a guarantee from our team at Amesbury Chevrolet.

As anyone in the Amesbury area will tell you, winter weather can create a number of challenges for drivers. But with a little planning and preparation, there’s no reason why you can’t drive with confidence all winter long. Not sure where to start? I’ve got you covered with these winter car care tips.
Cold weather can put extra strain on your car’s battery, and can quickly transform a dying battery into a dead battery. Before winter officially arrives, it’s important to test your car’s battery to make sure it’s up to the task of winter driving.
Between snow, sleet, ice, and cold, traction is very important when driving in winter. Fall is the perfect time to check in on your car’s tires and monitor for proper pressure, alignment and tread.
Keep an eye on antifreeze
Coolant (AKA antifreeze) is essential for keeping your car’s engine running when the temperature begins to drop. As the name implies, antifreeze literally keeps the engine from freezing up in the cold, so it’s important to keep an eye on antifreeze levels going into the colder months of the year.
Stow emergency kit
Finally, it’s always a good idea to stow some emergency items in your car. During the winter, you should pack a kit in your car that contains food and water, blankets, and a battery-powered cellphone charger.
For more tips on how to prepare for winter’s worst, come speak with our staff at Amesbury Chevrolet.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

The Chevy Malibu isn’t just the perfect car for you – it’s the perfect car for the whole family. The Malibu is the ultimate car to be passed down thanks to its timelessness, safety, and efficiency.
The Malibu has earned multiple achievement titles and has proven its dependability by remaining the most reliable amongst other midsize contenders in the Power 2018 U.S. U.S. Dependability Study. It also scored the high honor of Top Safety Pick from the Institute of Highway Safety Pick thanks to its optional Driver Confidence Package.
The Malibu comes with available Teen Driver technology– which makes it perfect to pass down to the new drivers in your family. Teen Driver instills good driving habits in younger drivers by putting a volume limit on their driving, disabling the infotainment system until everyone’s buckled, and more. Plus, an in-vehicle report card makes it easy to make sure your teen is driving safely.
For the green drivers in your family, the Malibu is perfect. A hybrid option means that the Malibu can deliver up to an estimated 49 city mpg. Even the non-hybrid Malibu delivers an estimated 36 highway mpg, meaning that it’s ideal for the wallet-conscious members of your family, too.
You won’t find a better family ride than the Chevrolet Malibu, which can be found right here at Amesbury Chevrolet.

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.
