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.
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. Although we’re short on official information, we expect that the new Silverado HD will offer a variety of strong powertrain options – including gas and diesel V8 options – as well as the many of the features currently on offer in the 2019 Silverado. It will most likely be lighter than its predecessors, offering enhanced towing and hauling capabilities and technologies. We’re guessing it will also feature state-of-the-art driver-assist and safety technology, as well as entertainment and connectivity technology like Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility.
The announcement of the 2020 Silverado HD comes after a string of other new Silverado model announcements, so look out for revamped, exciting 2019 Silverados in the coming months. Here at Amesbury Chevrolet, we can’t wait for the arrival of this highly-anticipated addition to Chevy’s truck lineup.
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.

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.

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.
Spring is a magnificent time of year. The natural world is in bloom, temperatures are warming up, and you have a million things you need to do, like gardening, repairing your house, and building that new swingset. Get these jobs done in a snap with your Chevrolet Silverado.
A fresh layer of mulch can really bring your front garden back to life. Depending on the trim level and engine, the Silverado has a maximum payload rating of up to 2,250 pounds, and that’s a lot of mulch. Imagine how much easier this job will be when you can load everything right into the bed of your Silverado.
But, the Silverado isn’t all work. You can have fun, too. Want to go on a spring bike ride along the coast? Load up the whole family’s collection of bikes into your bed, and be on the road faster. You won’t have to deal with removing the front tires or feeling like they might fall off the roof while you’re driving. If your weekend fun involves some bigger toys, like a boat, the Silverado can tow up to 12,500 pounds.
All of these activities with your Chevy Silverado, whether working or playing, will be easier than ever. Come see what else the Silverado can accomplish today at Amesbury Chevrolet.
Chevy is giving drivers more options than ever, including a range of new diesel powertrains. The 2018 Chevy Equinox, Cruze, and Cruze Hatchback will now come with diesel engine options to provide better fuel economy—among other essential advantages. While other automakers are dropping these powertrains, Chevy understands how important selection is to its customers, so it has expanded its Chevy Diesel lineup.
Chevy Diesel Powertrains
According to Detroit News, the 2018 model lineup will have several new diesel powertrains. This will include a 1.6-liter turbodiesel that gets up to 40 highway mpg. Only about 3% of models in the US are diesels; this engine type is considerably more popular in Europe. And, since Volkswagen and Audi have been prohibited from selling diesels in the US due to a recent scandal, Chevy has decided to pounce on a new market.
“Clearly, what’s happened at VW creates an opportunity for us,” GM North America President Alan Batey told reporters recently. “So we’ll do everything we can to seize the opportunity.”
What exactly is the difference between a diesel and gasoline engine? While gasoline engines use spark plugs to ignite fuel, a diesel engine uses compression to get every last ounce of energy out of the fuel. This leads to better fuel economy—one reason semis use diesel instead of gasoline. The new Chevy diesel lineup will offer better fuel economy for drivers everywhere.
