Chevrolet Brings Full-Size LEGO Silverado to Detroit

Lego Silverado 1500

Chevrolet began a partnership with Warner Bros. back in 2017 when The LEGO Batman Movie launched in theaters, with Chevy heralding the collaboration by showing off a LEGO version of the Batmobile.

Now, Chevrolet and Warner Bros. are back at it again, teaming up with FIRST LEGO League to unveil a full-size LEGO Silverado at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. This LEGO model is an exact representation of the all-new 2019 model year, particularly the LT Trail Boss trim.

Eighteen trained LEGO Master Builders pieced together the full-size LEGO Silverado using 334,544 bricks. The entire process took over 2,000 hours at the LEGO Group’s model shop in Enfield, Connecticut. The end result is 6-foot tall, 20-foot long, and 8-foot wide plastic car weighing 3,307 pounds. The LEGO Silverado is not a working model; it does, however, have working lights and graphic details on the exterior.

What’s the occasion for the build? Chevrolet is celebrating that the new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado High Country will make an appearance in LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part in the form of a custom LEGO mini-build.

If you want a real-life Silverado that’s much more durable than a plastic model, visit Sharon Chevrolet. We have plenty of trucks in stock — no assembly required.

Here Are the Best Cars for Driving in the Snow

2019 Chevrolet Equinox

No one likes driving in the snow; it’s stressful, dangerous, and time-consuming. But, some drivers mind it less than others, and those drivers are the ones behind the wheel of one of these winter-ready and snow-competent vehicles.

Honda CR-V

This crossover is ready for just about any weather the season throws its way. The Honda CR-V features stable suspension, a capable powertrain, and precise responsiveness, all of which will come in handy when the snow piles up.

Chevrolet Equinox

Redesigned in 2018, the Chevy Equinox feels like it was bred for driving in the snow. The new Equinox features optional all-wheel drive and two turbocharged four-cylinder engines, so you’ll have the capability and power to blast through any level of snowfall. Plus, as an added bonus, the Equinox features Remote Start, so you can get the motor running and heat pumping before you enter the vehicle.

Any Subaru

It’s no secret that all Subaru vehicles come with standard All-Wheel Drive. This alone boosts every Subaru model’s ability to drive in the snow. Additionally, Subaru designed its vehicles with activity in mind. This means the vehicles generally boast better clearance and handling systems, which are essential for navigating snowy terrains.

You can find a wide selection of pre-owned vehicles at Sharon Chevrolet that are great for driving through the snowy roads of Liverpool, New York.

Highly Anticipated 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD Revealed

2020 Chevrolet Silverado

The all-new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD is making its way closer to its rollout next year, but first we’re getting a better look at the upcoming heavy duty pickup. So far, we’ve seen the aggressive LT and premium High Country trims in detail.

The mid-range LT boasts an aggressive style with a bold grille and slick character lines. An athletic stance and upscale interior make the LT model a true sight to behold. The upcoming Silverado HD LT combines luxury and muscle for drivers who want the best of both worlds.

The premium 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD High Country recently made its debut. A conservative design and body-color bumpers create a sense of sophistication in the hefty pickup. A rather simple grille and bowtie logo further reinforce the streamlined styling. An exclusive two-tone metallic trim comes standard on the range-topping model.

An all-new gasoline V8 engine will power the upcoming pickup, though details won’t be disclosed until the full 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD reveal. Drivers have the option of selecting an updated variant of the Duramax® turbo-diesel V8 engine as well.

2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD maximum towing and payload capacities aren’t known yet. What we do know is that both values will be higher than the current truck’s ratings. And, we at Sharon Chevrolet know that these new trucks will be fantastic machines, like the rest of the Silverado line.

Chevy Traverse and Malibu Named as Top Family Vehicles of 2018

2018 Chevrolet Traverse

It can be stressful shopping for a family vehicle, as you’re investing a significant amount of money into purchasing a vehicle that will be transporting your family for years to come. You will likely consider various features that are important to families, including space, safety, and price. Luckily, Parents Magazine and Edmunds.com would like to help you with your decision, and that’s why they evaluated over 300 vehicles and made a “10 Best Family Cars of 2018” list.

Two Chevrolet vehicles made the prestigious list: the Chevy Traverse and Malibu. Both cars are great family vehicles, but for different reasons. The Traverse offers comfortable seating for up to eight passengers and up to 98.2 cubic feet of cargo space, while the Malibu offers an ample amount of space for car seats but is still remarkably efficient, with its Hybrid model achieving 49 mpg in the city.*

Both vehicles offer advanced connectivity and convenience technologies, including smart infotainment systems and USB charging ports so everyone can stay entertained and charged up while on the go.

To determine which vehicles ended up on the list and beat out the competition, the judges evaluated various family-friendly features, including specific features like how easy it is to install and use car seats in the vehicle. What they found with the Traverse and Malibu led to their distinction as top family vehicles of 2018.

If you’re in the market for a new family vehicle, you can find the new Chevrolet Traverse and Malibu at Sharon Chevrolet.

Pet-Friendly Vehicles That Are Perfect for Your Next Road Trip

Dog in car

Many families love to bring their pets on road trips, and there are some vehicles that do this better than others. For example, the Chevrolet Equinox, Subaru Crosstrek, and Honda Fit each offer what you need to keep your pet comfortable on the road.

According to The Doggington Post, one of the top vehicles for carrying your dog is the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox. The Equinox comes with up to 68 cubic feet of cargo space, which makes it great for big dogs. A range of hooks and safety straps help you to secure your pet. There are also easy-to-clean surfaces, and custom pet barriers are simple to find and install.

The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek is incredibly pet friendly. This crossover comes with all-wheel drive to make off-roading fun, and it’s easy to take your pets off the beaten path in the Crosstrek. The rear seats fold down to provide plenty of space, and available accessories like seat covers help keep your ride clean.

The Honda Fit is also a great choice for those who want a pet- and eco-friendly vehicle. There’s not quite as much space in the Fit as you’ll find in the Equinox, but the Fit does come with other great features like fold-down seats and exceptional safety. You don’t have to drive a big SUV to travel with your pets.

Test drive these pet-friendly vehicles at Sharon Chevrolet to see why they’re perfect for your next road trip with your pet.
