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.

In October We Wear Pink

The Little League of Amesbury was founded in 1952 and has thrived for the last 65 years, thanks to an active community and hundreds of dedicated volunteers. Registration for the Amesbury Little League is open, so if you want your kids on a team this summer, register them soon.
The A.L.L. website has posted information on divisions and age requirements, and the date set for kids eligible for AA, AAA, and Majors teams is Saturday, March 11. Tryouts are just for evaluation—everyone gets placed on a team. Coach and volunteer registration is also open, and the A.L.L. is always looking for good help, so don’t hesitate to sign up if you’re at all interested.

Winter can be the most boring time of the year, especially for families with kids with built-up energy. Cold temperatures and snow don’t mean you have to stay inside all winter long, though! Here are a few recommend things to do for families in winter from us here at Amesbury Chevrolet. Remember to stay warm!
New England Sports Park – If your kids are daredevils, then we have the perfect place for you! The New England Sports Park is one of the fastest, steepest snow tubing hills in the region. Visitors get a three-hour timeslot to make as many ventures up and down the hill. After the cold has gotten through your jackets, warm up at the Corner Kick Pub!
Bowling – Is there really a better winter pastime than bowling? Leo’s boasts 25 lanes that are perfect for the hands of children. Bowlers can choose to play with or without bumpers. The facility even features family-friendly events for all to enjoy as well as an arcade.
Lowell’s Boat Shop – There’s a lot to be said for visiting a working music and historic landmark when winter has taken hold. Lowell’s Boat Shop has displays of over 200 years of wooden boat-making history. Visitors can even see how fishing dories were, and still are, made as well.
If you’re looking to give back to the Amesbury community, there are tons of things you can do this holiday season. From soup kitchens to animal rescues, everyone can truly make a difference by volunteering. Whether you help for a day or you dedicate time every week, every little bit helps to make a difference.
Our Neighbors’ Table
One of the most important volunteer groups in the area is Our Neighbors’ Table. More than 400 people per year volunteer their time and money to provide food for those in need. There is a food pantry, dinners, holiday programs, emergency assistance, and more. Whether someone needs a bite to eat or is looking for emotional support, this program provides caring hearts, warm meals, and open minds.
Animal Rescue Merrimack Valley
You can also give back by volunteering at Animal Rescue Merrimack Valley. One of the most important things you can do is foster a pet. Foster homes provide support to the organization by socializing pets and opening up space at the facility. Donation coordinators are always needed, as well as adoption coordinators, feeders, transporters, and more. Pets are frequently abandoned around the holidays, making it especially important that you volunteer your time if possible.
These are just some of the many ways you can volunteer in Amesbury, MA. Giving back is one of the greatest things you can do. We hope to see you volunteering this winter.
On Tuesday, November 17th, Steve Buonomo was involved in a serious accident on Route 110. As a sales consultant for Amesbury Chevrolet, Steve is an important and beloved member of our staff. That’s why we held the Stevie B. River Cruise Benefit. Proceeds are in benefit of the recovery fund for our great employee and friend.
The Stevie B. River Cruise Benefit was held on Friday, August 26th at 6:30pm aboard the Captain’s Lady II at the Newburyport Waterfront Park. There was plenty of dancing, a DJ, drinks, and good-hearted fun. There was even a 50/50 raffle for those looking to walk away with some great prizes. The grand prize winner of the Point Sebago Getaway with golf package was Ms. Makarewicz.
The accident on November 17th left Steve with several injuries, including a traumatic brain injury and fractured bones. Initially airlifted to the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, he is now working toward recovery by performing extensive rehabilitation.
Part of the recovery fund was built on donations from a GoFundMe campaign that was able to raise more than $10,000 to help with this long and difficult process. Nonetheless, more money is needed for medical bills and living expenses. If you wanted to have a fun time while doing some good, we hope you were able to come down to the Stevie B. River Cruise Benefit.
Thankfully, we were able to raise a whopping $10,000 during this fundraiser! Thanks to everyone in the community to helped us help out a dear friend.
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?
