Dale Jr. and the All New Silverado Break Ground in Upcoming Daytona 500

Wilmington, NC- The 61st running of the Daytona 500 is quickly approaching just days away! One of the most sought out sporting events of all time,  the Daytona 500 will be held on February 17th.

In a unique start this year’s Daytona 500 will feature the 2019 Silverado 1500 as the official pace vehicle. This is the first time a pick-up truck will serve as the pace car in the Daytona 500, with two-time Daytona 500 winner Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the driver’s seat.

Honored to pace the Daytona 500 in the Silverado 1500, Earnhardt Jr. said (as cited by Motor Authority, 2018) “Away from the track I’ve driven Chevy trucks all my life, and I’m excited to have this unique experience of pacing the Daytona 500 with the Silverado.” Earnhardt Jr. is a member of the Hendrick Motorsports family, and retired from racing in 2017. Earnhardt Jr. is now a race analyst for the NBCUniversal, and owner of JR Motorsports.

Under the Hood– Although the Silverado 1500 lacks the appearance of a traditional race car, under the hood it features a 6.2-litre V8 with 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, packing a punch close in line with the Chevy Camaro.

Our very own Jeff Gordon will be commentating the Daytona 500 on Fox Sports. Gordon has won three Daytona 500’s 1997, 1999 and 2005. In 2015 Gordon’s final year of racing he won the pole at the Daytona 500, then in 2017 Gordon was the honorary pace car driver for the Daytona 500.

Although this is the first time for a pick-up truck to pace the Daytona 500, Chevrolet has been in the spotlight before pacing the “Great American Race” a total of 12 times; 5 of those times were with a Corvette, and 7 with a Camaro.

The Chevy Blazer: Back to the Beginning

It’s been fifty years since the Chevrolet K5 Blazer made its debut with the 1969 year model as an answer to vehicles like the Ford Bronco, Jeep Cherokee, and International Scout. It was built on the same frame as the full-sized K5 Chevy trucks and easily out-sized the competition, giving the power and off-road capability of a Chevy Truck with enough room for up to 5 passengers.

Here at Jeff Gordon Chevrolet, we’ve been dreaming of the Blazer to make a comeback for a while and were starting to think it’d never happen; That is, until Chevrolet dropped this major teaser this morning of a man sporting a fashionable sport jacket… A blazer!

Chevy Blazer Teaser Post.png

We’ll be honest; We were very perplexed at first and actually thought the post was a mistake. The people at Chevrolet assured that we were in for a surprise and once the light bulb went off, we haven’t been able to contain our excitement.

excitedgif

General Motors ceased production of the Blazer with the 2005 year model and although we love how far efficient crossovers like the Equinox and Traverse have come, we’ve been longing for a rugged off-roader to be added to Chevy’s SUV lineup. According to Chevrolet, the special event is happening tomorrow, June 21st, 2018 at 7PM EDT so we’ll definitely be following the news and posting updates here as soon as its available!

In the meantime, get nostalgic with us! Take a quick look at the first Chevy Blazer brochure courtesy of OldCarBrochures.com below and let us know in the comments what your favorite feature was or tell us about the fond memories of your family’s Blazer growing up!

For a more detailed history of the Blazer over its first lifetime, check out this article.

GM Owners Can Now Receive Amazon Deliveries Right to Their Vehicles

Chevrolet_Equinox_Amazon_Key_In_Car_Delivery_2.0New Service for Amazon Prime Members Launched Today in 37 US Cities

Despite the increased availability of affordable, easy-to-install home security systems, the convenience of online ordering also allows for increased opportunities for porch pirates. According to a study by Insurance Quotes, 25.9 million  Americans (8%) reported stolen packages from their doorsteps in 2016 – up from 23.5 million in 2015.

Thanks to a new partnership between Amazon and General Motors, owners of select 2015 and newer Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac vehicles can now get their packages delivered right to their car with their Prime membership via the Amazon Key mobile app at no additional charge. Amazon recently announced their in-home delivery option to allow members to give permission to delivery drivers to unlock the front door and leave packages in your entry-way, eliminating the risk of your package getting stolen off your front porch. As of right now, both in-home and in-car delivery services are available in 37 cities across the US with wider availability

How it works:

Amazon keyGM owners who have the an active OnStar account will be able to take advantage of this service when they download the Amazon Key app. The vehicle must be in an easily-accessible location like your driveway or public parking lot – no gates or parking garages. According to The Verge, who got a demonstration to this new service last week, you are able to choose the “in-car delivery” option upon checkout when you make your online purchase. Amazon will send a series of notifications to let you know the package is on its way. If for some reason you have to run a quick errand or feel like your vehicle may not be accessible when the package arrives, you have the option to change delivery locations or “block access” to the in-car delivery service. If you do block access, Amazon will default to your regular delivery location – most likely, your porch.

Check if you’re eligible here.

To pinpoint the location of your vehicle, the Amazon Key app does give the driver access to your vehicle’s GPS location, license plate number, and an image of the vehicle based on its description. Once the courier locates your vehicle, they use their device to verify that its been located, scans the package, and then requests the vehicle be unlocked via Chevy’s connected car services. When all those boxes are checked, a swipe on the screen unlocks the trunk and the package is placed inside. The courier verifies that the delivery is complete on his/her device, closes the trunk, and makes sure the vehicle is locked (which it should do on its own.)

Restrictions for in-vehicle delivery include any packages that are:

  • Over 50 pounds
  • Larger than 26 x 21 x 16 inches
  • Require a signature
  • Valued over $1,300
  • Or coming from a 3rd party seller (prime only!)

First Customers (Video)

As with most new services, Amazon has been beta-testing this in California & Washington to get customers’ reactions. In the following video by Amazon, one woman says this service allows her to receive her regular diaper delivery without risking her toddler being awoken by the doorbell. Another mother was able to use it to make sure her daughter wouldn’t be tipped off to the birthday gifts she purchased. One man said that he is now able to get his personal purchases placed discreetly in his vehicle while receiving business-related parcels to the office. So… yeah. Watch here:

These uses of the service do seem practical enough, but as more technologies like this come out, there will likely always be a question of how “safe” it is, virtually speaking.

So what do you think about Amazon Key In-Car? Would you use it? Let us know what you think in the comments!

Are you wishing you drove a GM vehicle so you could take advantage of this and all of the other awesome Connected Services through OnStar? That’s where we come in! Jeff Gordon Chevrolet has hundreds of new Chevrolets and GM Certified Pre-Owned Chevy, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac models to choose from. With our travel assistance programs, we can also arrange to have your new “delivery locker” (vehicle) delivered to your driveway and ready to receive your Amazon purchases. Or, we can arrange a little vacation to our beautiful coastal city of Wilmington, NC and have you fly in and drive your new vehicle home! Give us a call at (910)791-2424 to learn more!
