Whether traversing through town or prepping for a thrilling family road trip, Chevrolet supplies outstandingly safe designs. No matter the environmental or situational obstacle, its strongly constructed models and advanced technologies like Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning keep you and your passengers safe.

Although safety is never a concern with brands like Chevrolet in the industry, it wasn’t always the case. Long before Chevrolet was providing a superior level of protection, cars were ill-equipped deathtraps; but two women helped revolutionize the industry: Mary Anderson and Florence Lawrence. Inspiring the creation of the windshield wiper and brake lights, respectfully, Anderson and Lawrence jumpstarted a now essential engineering component: car safety.

Without Anderson and Lawrence, Chevrolet models would be quite different. Celebrate Women’s History Month by acknowledging how for we’ve come with safety and indulging in any one of our durable and confident new Chevrolet models here at Landers McLarty Chevrolet in Huntsville.

There is much anticipation already for the next generation of the most popular models to come out from Chevrolet. From the lighter and hybrid option in the 2016 Malibu to the most recently debuted 2016 Camaro, the lineup is set to be one to watch, and already the competition is starting to feel the heat. Not to be left behind in the 2015 model year, the Chevrolet Cruze is already receiving its own buzz as its future becomes more clear.

A more aggressive face takes on the open road with LED running lights so every other vehicle on the road knows the Cruze is coming this way. A rearview camera will come standard, and with more available features than the competition, you can soon opt for premium features like heated seats in both front and rear seats without paying a premium. The technology on the inside is set to be impressive as well. In other mid-size sedans, the manufacturer only is compatible with one type of smartphone; these days are long gone with the Cruze, which comes equipped with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay so you are free to use your smartphone as you want with the car you are driving. Add the available 4G LTE WiFi and you have one hi-tech car on your hands.

A lighter body structure and enhanced agility is combined with a turbocharged 1.4L engine with direct injection and start/stop technology to help you conserve fuel. The result of all of these efficient technologies is a maximum highway range of over 500 miles. And with class-leading rear leg room and a longer wheelbase, you do not have to stop as much as in a smaller, lesser car.

The landscape of the United States was formed over millennia, wind, water and sand carving out the mountains and smoothing the plains that we know today. With such a varied terrain between sea and shining sea, it makes sense, then, that America is the home of the sports car. No other ride could be as satisfying to explore the curves and straights of the roadways that separate the states, and the leader of the sports car pack continues to be the Chevy Camaro.

Every single year that the Camaro remains on the road includes updates. New technology in the cabin and under the hood allow you to seize the thrill of the standard V6 engine more completely as time wears on. For those who seek an even more exhilarating experience, the ZL1 puts a supercharged V8 at your disposal, so the rest of the neighborhood knows how you like to run things. Test the limits of speed on the track with the Z/28 and its massive 7L V8 engine.

The next generation of the Camaro will debut this fall, and for 2016 the engineers took a nod from trends in the industry to turn towards lighter weight materials. Thanks to the technology of the modern age, new alloys are as rigid if not more so than the traditional steel but the lessened overall weight of the car means more of the power generated under the hood is applied to getting up to speed faster and going farther than you were able to travel previously.

With anywhere from 323 to 580hp, the interior is sculpted to enhance the experience behind the flat-bottomed wheel. Settle in to the high performance seating, while you choose the amount of amenities you want, so you can shave the weight that you deem unnecessary so the drive is even better.

Come in to Landers McLarty Chevrolet and let the Camaro do the talking. Take her out for a test drive around Huntsville, AL and see the American landscape as it was meant to be seen: from behind the wheel of a performance artist.

There are a few sedans on the market, and it can be confusing to figure out which one is the right choice for you. With style to spare, the Chevy Malibu is more than just good looks, and can claim several accolades, from the most dependable midsize car by J.D. Power and Associates, to being an IIHS Top Safety Pick.

It all starts with Chevrolet intuition. Unlike other manufacturers, the engineers behind the Malibu listened to what drivers like you had to say. They took what worked well and perfected it, and continue to update the Malibu if other aspects need improvement. For 2016, the next model year will feature improved leg room in the second row for increased accessibility and comfort for each passenger.

The current 2015 model is fit and free, with enviable fuel economy, thanks to innovative start/stop technology. When you apply the brake to come to a full stop, the engine shuts off to conserve fuel. Then, when the brake is released, the engine restarts without any action from you. So you drive normally, and the Malibu does all the conservation for you.

Stay connected in the cabin with onboard 4G LTE WiFi, available standard with OnStar so you can communicate with the outside world and use your music and navigation apps over the internet. Voice command technology and steering-wheel mounted controls mean you stay focused on the road ahead while choosing the music you want as the miles tack on.

Opt for leather appointed seats and indulge your senses while on the road. Sport sculpted seats afford each person more room within the cabin as well as improved comfort. The rear row features a 60/40 split so you can increase the cargo space from 16.3 cubic feet to take along larger items.

Come in to Landers McLarty Chevrolet and take the new Malibu out for a test drive aroundHuntsville, AL today. See for yourself all the reasons why the Malibu is beating the competition in the sedan segment.

You like the style of the sedan. It is versatile, and because it is smaller in size and stature than other utility vehicles, you feel a different sense of freedom when you close the driver's door and settle in behind the wheel. Not all sedans are created equal, however, and if you have a flair for the dramatic and seek out adventure, it is high time you took a closer look at the sedan that is redefining performance for the everyday driver: the Chevrolet SS.

People are able to walk and run because of the strong, rigid bone structure that supports the muscles. The same framework is applied to vehicles. The more rigid body structure allows the power to be more efficiently channeled from the engine to the wheels, as it isolates the road inputs and improves handling and the ride. In the SS, a sport-tuned suspension works in combination with a sophisticated multi-link system and electronic steering so you experience a refined ride behind the wheel. The weight is distributed as close to perfectly evenly as possible, with capitalizes on the refined handling.

When we break it down to numbers, the Chevy SS is even more impressive. With over 400 horsepower generated from the 6.2L V8 engine, the car gets from zero to sixty in just five seconds. Electronic stability control works continuously to maximize traction and performance, even at high speeds.  The SS truly is, in every way, the one and only Sport Sedan.

The interior was designed for you to feel relaxed and comfortable while the Chevy SS does all the hard work. Sporty accents and a soft cabin mean you can go the extra mile in a quiet ride, thanks to acoustic laminated glass. For the full view into the SS, come on in to Landers McLarty Chevrolet and take a test drive in this sport sedan around Huntsville, AL. Push your own limits with a new car that is always redefining the expectation.

A work truck is defined by how you use it. You need a truck with the proper payload and towing maximum in order to carry out the jobs as they come in, and in anything less than the ideal combination of performance and capability, the job cannot be done as efficiently. When it comes to a solid performance in the field and an exceptional ride quality, you cannot beat the comfort and power of the Chevy Silverado.

There are three engines available, so you can get the right amount of power and efficiency for the work you do. Choose whether you want to optimize efficiency with the V6 engine that leads its category and class for fuel efficiency, or maximum towing in the class at a whopping 12,000 lbs of towing with the 6.2L V8. You also benefit from the storage and accessibility innovations that are only available on the Silverado, like the CornerStep that is integrated into the rear bumper and the EZ-Lift and Lower tailgate. And like other new Chevy models for the 2015 model year, you have a vehicle equipped with 4G LTE WiFi, so you can stay connected when on the go. Being able to take phone calls and answer pressing questions can make all the difference in the middle of the work day, and now you can take your productivity to a whole new level.

When you sync your smartphone with the infotainment center, you can use voice command and communicate wirelessly to your phone, but it would be a moot point if you couldn't be heard above the endless noise of the pavement. Now you can revel in the relaxing cabin of the Silverado, the quietest truck in its class. Triple-sealed doors and laminated windows mean that all of the extraneous noise that can drive you mad stays on the outside of the cabin. You can listen to music, field phone calls, or enjoy the quiet.

"Manchester United has more than 659 million supporters around the world, and we want them to know that we march side by side with them," says Tim Mahoney, chief marketing officer, Global Chevrolet. "We wanted to celebrate this new shirt with Manchester United supporters in an historic way because they deserve to be part of this important moment in club history."1
