Detail Your RideRead More
With the advent of summer, it’s the perfect time to make your Chevy shine once again: it’s time for a thorough detail. If you are prepared to take on a DIY detail, there’s no need to be intimidated: you can get your Chevy sparkling once again with a few easy steps!
Scrub a Dub: Find a nice area of shade, where you can suds-up and rinse off your Chevy. The shade will allow you to see any residue left on your vehicle, and any scratches or cracks in the paint. In a bucket, mix soap (either dish soap or automotive-approved soap) in water, then dip your sponge in the bucket and start scrubbing away.
Splish Splash: Next, use a hose to rinse the soap off your vehicle, ensuring that all bubbles are washed away so the soap does not leave a film, which would truly prevent your Chevy’s real shine from coming through.
Dry: Using a microfiber towel, preferably, gently dry your vehicle section by section in a circular motion. If you want to raise your drying game a bit, you can also use a leaf blower, just make sure there is not any debris lodged in the blower that could land on your car.
Time to Shine: Once dry, it’s time to bring out that showroom sparkle. To polish your paint, the right tools and proper technique are paramount. Some tools that are excellent to have on hand are an orbital polisher, an assortment of polishing pads in various sizes, and a good polishing compound. Experts recommend watching instructional videos so as to get your technique down regarding arm speed, pressure, and pad flatness.
With a few hours devoted to washing, drying, and polishing your Chevy, it will be restored to that showroom sparkle in no time at all. Your Chevrolet will be ready to find new roads all summer long.
Join Chevy As We Drive into the Electric FutureRead More
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, or simply count yourself as blissfully unaware, you’ll know that these days, gas prices are at an all-time high. Our pockets are hurting, and so is the environment.
When you fill your vehicle up at the pump with gasoline or diesel, they then emit carbon dioxide - a greenhouse gas - out into the Earth’s atmosphere. The EPA says that greenhouse gasses like carbon dioxide, methane, or nitrous oxide, all continue to build up, which is causing the atmosphere to warm up, leading to the climate changes we continue to see day-to-day. The emissions created by transportation vehicles in the United States alone contribute to 29 percent of the country’s total greenhouse gas emissions.
Here at Chevrolet, we understand your concerns, whether they be financial or environmental. That’s why we continue to roll out new and improved electric vehicles, equipped with Ultium batteries, state-of-the-art technology, and EV charging systems, to make your purchase as easy as possible for both your wallet and your conscience.
We like to think that the decisions we make are beneficial for everyone involved. Fortunately, with an electric vehicle from Chevy, you can rest assured that is the case.
Zero emissions; Hit he road without worrying about how much gas you’ll be burning because... guess what? There is none!

Let Chevy Handle Your Springtime Vehicle Service NeedsRead More
Did you Know That April is National Car Care Month?
The season of joyrides, tailgating, and road trips is just about here! The days are getting longer, and the weekend weather means less screen time and more free time.
As we start shedding our own layers of sweaters and jackets, isn’t it only fair that we help our Chevrolets shed the layers of salt and grime built up after months of driving through the snow and sleet from one adventure to the next?
Central New Yorkers know that each season calls for necessary maintenance and repairs for home and lawn – and it’s exactly the same for your Chevy! From checking your tire pressure and making sure your windshield wipers are doing their job, letting the little things slide now could mean bigger problems down the road.
Forgetting to keep your car’s maintenance up-to-date also means you’ll have a tougher time passing inspection. The Car Care Council says that 7 in 10 cars will fail at least one component of inspection due to lack of proper upkeep!
But we know you don’t have time to fail inspection – you have warmer places to be and fun people to see when you get there. That’s why Chevy makes a wide range of service offers available to you, starting from the moment you purchase your vehicle.
New Chevy Vehicle Owners
You might already know that any new Chevrolet comes with one factory-included maintenance visit, which includes an oil change, tire rotation, and Multi-Point Vehicle Inspection, to be used within your first year of owning the vehicle. But did you know that if you purchased a 2019 Chevy or newer, you can get more bang for your buck by purchasing the Extended Factory Maintenance?
It’s true! With this plan, you gain access to three additional visits, which you can schedule at any time within the first two years of purchase.
New, Used and Leased Chevy Vehicle Owners
Driving a Chevy means you have the ability to access a slew of vehicle service benefits that come in handy at any time, no matter what adventure you’re on:
Pre-paid maintenance, which covers you for any scheduled oil and filter changes, as well as tire rotations.
Tire and wheel protection means that you’ll be taken care of if you run into a problem on the road, whether you need a repair or a replacement. This also includes 24-hour Emergency Roadside Assistance.
The Appearance Guard Plan helps keep your Chevrolet looking as good as new.
Leased Chevy Vehicles
So you’re driving your leased Chevy up to the Adirondacks this summer. Maybe you’re headed to the beach for some well-deserved R&R. But what about the terms of your lease?
Our XS Wear Lease Protection plan is here when you hit a problem that might be considered bigger than normal wear and tear, which might include:
Dents, scratches, and chipped paint
Tires and wheels
Missing parts, Owner’s Manual, or keys—if charges are less than $150 per item
Excess mileage charges up to $400
Celebrate National Car Care Month with Chevrolet
This spring, Chevrolet has a whole slate of service offers, on top of everything we listed above, for you to make sure your vehicle is in tip-top shape. We know that you drive a Chevy for a reason, so when it comes time for it to be serviced, only the best will do. With the specialized tools and expertise of each and every one of our Chevrolet Certified Service Experts, we’ll get you back on the road safely in no time.
Worrying about your tires? With our Spring Tire Sales Event, there’s no need. When you purchase Bridgestone, Continental, Goodyear, Hankook, or Pirelli tires with a GM Rewards Card, and have us install them, you’ll receive a $200 rebate! Don’t have a GM Rewards Card? No problem – you’ll still get a $100 rebate with any other form of payment.
And let’s not forget the rest! Right now, we’re offering can’t-miss rebates when you schedule an appointment to replace tires, shocks, struts, brake pads, and brake rotors. Check out the full details here to find the right deal for you and your Chevy.
Charge up Your Imagination With the First-Ever Silverado EVRead More
Chevrolet has proudly been at the forefront of vehicle innovation since the brand drove onto the production line, exceeding expectations, in 1911.
While they’ve played a critical role in providing reliable, advanced vehicle options to fit anyone’s lifestyle, driving in the sustainability lane isn’t a new concept for Chevrolet. General Motors announced a $27 billion electric vehicle investment, so their experts can shift to an all-electric future.
They’ve answered the question… “What if?”
“What if we could create a cost-effective, accessible solution to decrease air emissions for a cleaner environment?”
A commitment to 30 new global electric vehicles.
The First-Ever Silverado EV
You’re familiar with the Chevrolet Silverado, the longest-lasting pickup truck on the road, correct? Now, imagination has no limits, and the future is here.
It’s time to say an energetic ‘hello’ to the first-ever Silverado EV, an electric vehicle designed to offer drivers a simple, smart, alternative way to drive.
The Silverado EV goes above and beyond to provide smart technology and advanced agility, while still being capable of taking you where you need to go – fast.
Ultium – A Seismic Shift
So… how does it work? The Silverado EV still packs power. Its force is driven by an all-new battery platform: Ultium. That brings with it new power, new force, new flexibility, and of course, a new range of possibilities.
There’s no engine. Don’t let that scare you.
It’s a turn for the better, we promise. This electric Silverado option can take you an estimated 400 miles on a full charge! And if you need to get somewhere fast… you can go 0-60 in under 4.5 seconds. How’s that for power?
Three Ways to Power Up
120-Volt Charging – Level 1 home-charging option that comes with a standard 3-prong, 120-volt household outlet. This is a solution for those taking shorter, daily trips.
240-Volt Charging – Level 2 home-charging option, which uses a 240-volt household appliance outlet for the fastest home-charge times. This charging option is recommended for most electric drivers.
DC Public Fast Charging – This ‘on-the-go’ charging solution can get a GM-estimated 100 miles of range in just 10 minutes. There are more than 40,000 available public electric air charging stations.
The Multi-Flex Midgate with Pass-Through fits those extra-long items for construction work or outdoor adventures. You will be able to reach entirely new lengths, while not having to worry about leaving anything behind on the way.
The power behind this Chevy Silverado also means you can get up to 10,000 lbs. of max towing to hitch up and hit the road with ease as soon as you’re fully charged.
Ride In Style into the Electric Future
Where to even begin with the futuristic perks of this EV?
We have to start with Ultifi, the intelligent software platform that keeps your vehicle functioning and personalized with over-the-air updates, downloadable apps and new features so your vehicle system is constantly keeping up with you, wherever you are.
With the Super Cruise Driver Assistance Technology, you can enjoy the freedom of hands-free driving and trailering across 200,000 miles of compatible roads in the U.S. and Canada.
The new 4-Wheel Steer means that all four wheels will work together, for a smaller turning radius, helping you make those tight turns up the mountainside or through traffic. Once you’ve arrived at your destination, you’ll look at parallel parking or sliding into even the tightest of parking spots with ease.
Get Going on Your Next Adventure
Chevrolet has been leading this charge with category-defying, boundary-breaking technology, starting in 2016 with the introduction of an all-electric Bolt EV.
Are you ready to get your hands on a first-ever? Chevy is with you every step of the way. Reach out to your local North Country Chevrolet Dealer and request a test drive today.
