Spring car care is key to starting your car out on the right foot for the rest of the year. Check out these three simple tips to getting started!
Do some spring cleaning
Deep-cleaning your ride means starting with the inside. Clear out any trash or clutter you may have thrown into the cabin of your vehicle, making sure you remember the trunk, and then it’s time to get out the cleaning supplies. Scrub dirt out of the deepest corners, wash the floor mats, vacuum, and buy specialized supplies for cleaning or wiping down cloth or leather seats.
Wash and wax the exterior
There’s a reason the image of soaping up and hosing down your car in the driveway gives us warm-weather nostalgia. It’s the right time of year to get out a couple buckets, one for soapy water and one for rinsing, and go to town. Make sure to buy special soap that won’t corrode your vehicle. Finish off with a new coat of wax for fresh shine.
Do routine maintenance
You should be keeping up with your maintenance schedule anyway, but a few things are a little more important come spring. First of all, swap out your streaky old wiper blades. Then, check out your tire pressure, which lowers more rapidly in cool temperatures, and follow up by taking your car to a professional and having them inspect the engine and suspension.

This past December, the Chevrolet Suburban received a Hollywood star to be placed on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It was the first time in history that an automobile earned an Award of Excellence Star, and of all vehicles the Chevy Suburban has definitely earned it.
The full-size SUV made its first appearance on screen in 1952. Since that debut, the Suburban has appeared in over 1,750 movies and television shows. It’s had a role in at least one TV series per year since 1956, and at least one film a year since 1960. Over 30 of its roles on the silver screen were in award-nominated films.
The industry loves the Suburban for its versatility. It’s had roles as the villain, as the family car, and as everything in between. It can signify importance, or represent the classic American family.
Following in the Suburban’s footsteps is the Chevy Tahoe. This midsize SUV has had its own successful Hollywood story, appearing in at least one television series and one movie a year since the SUV was introduced in 1995.
The Suburban received its star on December 4, 2020, in an unveiling ceremony at ceremony on Hollywood Boulevard where the SUV was honored for its 67 years of work in Hollywood.

The first-ever, mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette Stingray was named the 2020 MotorTrend Car of the Year, marking the third time in its 66-year history that the Corvette has won the award.
The Corvette previously won it in 1984 and 1998. Tadge Juechter, Corvette executive chief engineer and Michael Simcoe, General Motors vice president of Global Design, were present to accept the award at MotorTrend’s headquarters in El Segundo, California.
The mid-engine Corvette can reach 60 miles per hour in 2.9 seconds when it’s equipped with the Z51 Performance Package. It’s also powered by the next-generation 6.2-liter Small Block V8 LT2 engine, which delivers 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. These features make it the fastest, most powerful entry-level Corvette to date.
The reimagined iconic vehicle has exotic proportions and a modern design inspired by racing and aeronautics that brings a raised level of quality, customization, technology and craftsmanship to the Corvette.
It’s tough to live up to such great expectations with such a legendary car, but judging by the 2020 MotorTrend Car of the Year award, it’s safe to say such expectations should be surpassed once production begins on the Corvette in February 2020. Expect to see it then at College Chevrolet Buick!
Chevrolet and NASCAR are both associated with lightning-fast performance vehicles. So when Chevy debuts a new vehicle for the NASCAR Cup Series, you know that you’re in for something exciting.
Starting with the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series, the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE will become the automaker’s racecar of choice.
The Camaro ZL1 1LE will replace the outgoing Camaro ZL1 currently used in the NASCAR Cup Series. While the standard Camaro ZL1 is still incredibly fast, the ZL1 1LE represents the most up-to-date performance that Chevy has to offer.
“The ZL1 1LE is the highest performer within the Camaro production-car lineup,” explains Jim Campbell, U.S. vice president of Performance and Motorsports for Chevrolet. “We took lessons from the production car and applied them to the new 2020 Cup car.”
To help craft this performance vehicle, Chevrolet employed a number of state-of-the-art techniques, including wind tunnel testing and computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
Chevrolet is no stranger to introducing vehicles for racing purpose. In fact, Chevy also has vehicles in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, NHRA Funny Car class, and Pirelli World Challenge GTS division.

The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3.0-liter Duramax Turbo-Diesel engine has been rated by the EPA at 33 miles per gallon on the highway when equipped with rear-wheel drive. 4-wheel drive brings that number down to 29 mpg highway, still an amazing number for a full-size light-duty pickup truck.
Just because its fuel economy is so impressive doesn’t mean the Silverado isn’t powerful. The Duramax Turbo-Diesel puts out 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of toque, letting the Silverado tow up to 9,300 lbs and haul 1,870 lbs when the truck is equipped with 4WD, providing plenty of power for the vast majority of truck drivers.
Towing and hauling have never been easier than with the new Silverado, which boasts an active thermal management system, an exhaust brake for better control when going downhill, and driver-selectable start/stop technology to help you use even less fuel.
It’s been more than 20 years since Chevrolet offered a diesel engine option in a light-duty pickup truck, but as more and more drivers become conscious of fuel use, efficient engine options like diesel are becoming more sought after. Additionally, 2020 is the first year ever that Chevrolet will offer an inline-six engine in its light-duty full-size pickup line. You will be able to get yours att College Buick Chevrolet, talk to a specialist today.
Chevrolet auctioned off the final seventh-generation Corvette — a handsome black Z06 — earlier this year at the Barrett-Jackson Northeast Auction at the Mohegan Sun in Connecticut. The gavel banged at a record-breaking final total of $2.7 million, which is all the more impressive considering that all the proceeds will given to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation builds smart homes for injured service members and pays their mortgages, helping ensure a better life after sacrificing so much for their countries. The foundation also pays off the mortgages of families of first responders killed in the service of others. To date, Tunnel to Towers has 85 homes built or in the process of construction.
“This is going to vibrate across America,” said Frank Siller, chairman and CEO of the Stephen Siller Foundation. “This donation will build at least five homes for our catastrophically-injured veterans to give them their independence and a better quality of life.”
Over the past five years, General Motors and Chevrolet have helped raise more than $10 million for the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. In 2018, $2.2 million was raised, including $925,000 earned in the auction of the first 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 off the production line.
College Chevrolet Buick is proud to support our community at large and proud to represent a brand that does so much for our nation’s heroes.
