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.

Come in to Landers McLarty Chevrolet and take a Cruze around Huntsville, AL. The 2016 model is not set to arrive for a few months yet, but stay tuned for more information on the future of the Chevy lineup.

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.

For more information on the Chevy Silverado 1500, come in Landers McLarty Chevrolet. Come in and take the new Silverado out for a test drive around Huntsville, AL today.

Here in Huntsville, AL, we know a thing or two about keeping our cool. Whether it means knowing where to go to beat the heat, or setting the standard for style on the streets, we have it on lock. With the Chevrolet Camaro you can do it all, with looks to spare.

There is a reason the Camaro is the modern twist on the American classic. The body is sculpted; strong lines produce an aerodynamic V shape to allow the car to cut through the air for a dynamic performance. The difference between a sports car and a regular coupe or sedan is not just the handling and a finely tuned suspension that elevates the ride, but also the overall experience it produces for you as the driver.

Within the Camaro, you feel the full command of the 323 horsepower within the direct injection V6 engine. The cabin becomes your cockpit, lined for your comfort and convenience while on the road. The center infotainment center features a seven inch screen so you can clearly utilize the touch screen easily without taking any attention away from the drive. The beauty of the sleek interior is all about the details, like the sueded microfiber and dual stitching that gives it sport-inspired design and attitude so you can more fully immerse yourself within the experience behind the wheel. The steering wheel has mounted controls so you can still command the music or field phone calls without taking your eyes on the pavement.

Whether you opt for a top of the line trim model so you have a home away from home experience while gripping the steering wheel, or go with a more classic, streamlined machine that is rough and raw, as a car was meant to be, we have a wide selection here at Landers McLarty Chevrolet. The price alone is enough reason for you to take a closer look at the new Camaro, and once you see how spacious the interior is, you might bring a friend or two along for the ride. Come in and take a test drive or two, and just try to picture yourself without a Camaro. Isn't it time you allowed yourself to have some fun?
