We’ve witnessed the revival of several iconic Chevrolet nameplates, like the Blazer and TrailBlazer — and based on a recent patent filed by Chevrolet, we may be seeing another triumphant return.
Back in March, the automaker reserved the rights to use the Cavalier name on “motor land vehicles, namely automobiles, sport utility vehicles, trucks, vans, engines therefor and structural parts thereof.”
During its run from 1982-2005, the Cavalier was available as a four-door sedan, two-door coupe, two-door convertible, and even a five-door station wagon. While most of these body styles aren’t a big hit with consumers nowadays, it’s possible that the Cavalier could replace the outgoing Chevrolet Cruze — or return as a hatchback, crossover, or SUV.
In the U.S., Chevrolet hasn’t used the Cavalier nameplate since 2005. However, the Cavalier still enjoys a strong presence around the globe — it’s currently sold in China, while in Mexico, the Cavalier recently replaced the Chevrolet Sonic.
Although General Motors denies rumors that it plans to reintroduce the Cavalier to the U.S. market, it wouldn’t be shocking to see this signature sedan make a comeback.

While some people might imagine millennials as car-hating, ridesharing, bike riders, most of them still drive and own cars. In fact, the car brand millennials prefer the most is Chevrolet.
In a recent survey done by AutoList.com, they asked about 1,750 car shoppers three questions. The first question was their age, the second question was what vehicle brand they would purchase now, and the third was what brand they currently own.
After the results were tallied, Chevrolet came out as the preferred brand for both millennials and the younger buyers of Generation Z.
Reason For The Preference
“Chevy is doing a great job of trading on its reputation as a no-nonsense, affordable brand while at the same time adding to its vehicles the stuff younger buyers covet,” said Chase Disher, an analyst at Autolist.com. “This includes things like Wi-Fi hotspots, Apple CarPlay™, and Android Auto™ connectivity, wireless phone charging and an intuitive infotainment system.”
To show that this wasn’t just a fluke, QuoteWizard did its own study and got similar results. The study found that young buyers are drawn to Chevy, in part because of affordable MSRPs. In addition, the Chevrolet Impala was ranked 6 out of 10 as one of the “most popular cars driven by millennials.”
Test-drive a shiny new 2019 Chevy for yourself when you stop by H&H Chevrolet. We’ll help match you with the right vehicle to suit your budget and preferences.
It happens to all of us: we forget where we parked our car, or we forget to text our family member that we arrived at where we said we were going. Luckily, Chevy has a solution for us, as the automaker has just added a convenient new Vehicle Locate feature to its myChevy smartphone app.
The Vehicle Locate feature has two main functions: Firstly, it stores your vehicle’s location when parking, making it so you’re always able to find your vehicle quickly in crowded lots. Secondly, it allows you to set boundary areas. Once you set a boundary area, you can select which family members and friends you’d like the app to automatically send text alerts to, letting them know that you have arrived at or departed from a particular location. For instance, you can set your workplace as a boundary area and automatically let your special someone know when you leave work and are on your way home. Alternatively, you can set your teen driver’s school as a boundary area, making it so you get an automatic alert when they arrive at school.
With the new feature, everyday travel alerts between family members are made effortless, giving you peace of mind that your loved ones have arrived safely at their destinations. Contact us at H&H Chevrolet if you need help with myChevy app’s new Vehicle Locate function or any of its other functions.
Who says an electric car can’t be fast? The Chevrolet eCOPO Camaro concept fuses the performance muscle car enthusiasts want with the eco-friendly efficiency that environmentalists crave. And it can jet down a drag strip in as little as 9 seconds.
In its initial appearance, the electric Chevrolet Camaro tore down a quarter-mile strip in just 10.14 seconds. That was just at 80-percent power though. The engineers behind the electric model knew they could do better.
The electric Chevrolet Camaro concept features a powertrain that generates 700 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque. The instant torque isn’t definitely impressive. After all, how often does a muscle car manage to pop a wheelie off the starting line?
Not only is the concept fast, but it’s also quiet, like most other electric vehicles. The 800-volt system is comprised of four 175-pound batteries located in the rear of the Camaro for enhanced stability.
As electric cars increase in popularity around the world, the electric Chevrolet Camaro concept might make its way to dealership lots in the near future. Stay tuned for more news on this exciting concept car. In the meantime, stop by to take one of our current Chevy Camaro models for a test drive.
Motor Trend has released a report that Chevrolet is working on a small crossover addition to its lineup—and that it may bear the TrailBlazer name. According to the sources, the new Chevy TrailBlazer will fit between the subcompact crossover Trax and the compact SUV Equinox.
Chevrolet has yet to release any information about whether the new TrailBlazer is anything more than a rumor, but allegedly, when asked about the possibility, Chevy marketing director Steve Majoros implied there was truth to it and said to wait for news over the next few months.
Chevy is of the opinion at you “can’t have too many” crossover and SUV options, given the immense popularity of utility vehicles right now and the demand for crossovers that fit easily on city streets. So whether or not it will carry the TrailBlazer name, a compact crossover between the Trax and Equinox is probably inevitable.
Motor Trend has theorized that spy shots of unreleased Chevy vehicles, previously thought to be the 2020 Trax, could, in fact, be the possible TrailBlazer—especially since the Trax and TrailBlazer would be so close in size that they would be hard to distinguish from each other while camouflaged. The Trax is set to debut a new generation for the upcoming model year, though, so the mystery crossover could easily be the 2020 Trax too.
If you can’t wait for a new TrailBlazer to find an SUV for your personal fleet, contact us at H&H Chevrolet to learn more about what is available now.
Sunday, May 26, 2019, marks the 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500. Proudly carrying the Bowtie Brand of Chevrolet into this premier event of the 2019 IndyCar Series is the two-time Formula 1 champion, Fernando Alonso.
Alonso’s McLaren Racing entry will feature a Chevrolet 2.2-liter twin-turbocharged direct-injected V6 IndyCar engine. The 134 cubic-inch engine has a road-street course horsepower rating of 675 mph. Since returning to the IndyCar series seven seasons back, Chevy’s V6 engines have claimed victories in 73 of 118 races.
Alonso himself has an impressive record with a seven-year win rating of over 70 percent. In addition to his F1 championships in 2005 and 2006, he has claimed 97 podium victories placing him sixth overall in the series. In 2006, Alonso claimed a victory in Monaco and earlier this year he won the grueling 24 Hours of Le Mans. Should he take victory this year in the Indianapolis 500 he would be one of only two racers to ever claim victory in all three of these prestigious races known together as the Triple Crown of Motorsports.
Years of driving experience from Fernando Alonso combined with decades of Chevrolet engineering could see history made at this year’s 2019 Indianapolis 500. If you’re looking for the perfect car to take you to victory on your daily commute, contact us at H&H Chevrolet.

The 2019 Silverado 1500 design comes with more cargo room than ever before thanks to the especially large bed. The Silverado has the most functional bed of any truck on the market, offering lots of space and several features to improve versatility. If you’re looking for a truly capable truck, check out the new Silverado 1500.
According to Chevrolet, the 2019 Silverado has up to 89 cu ft of space with the Long Box configuration, which is 14 cu ft more than the 2018 model year. The Short Box and Standard Box configurations are also considerably larger, allowing you to store a wider range of cargo. Plus, the high-strength steel design can withstand 500 MPa, which is significantly more than trucks like the F-Series or Ram 1500.
“The bed is the heart and soul of any pickup, so we made several improvements to the bed of the all-new Silverado to give our customers an even better hauling experience,” said Tim Herrick, executive chief engineer, Full-Size Trucks, General Motors. “We’ve added so many features and benefits that it deserves its own name – Durabed.”
In addition to more space, the Silverado 1500 has added features like 12 fixed tie-downs that can hold 500 pounds of pressure before bending. Available in-bed LED lighting provides visibility so you can work at night, and an optional 110/120-volt outlet provides a convenient power source.
