The MLB All-Star Silverado Goes to Mike Trout

Mike Trout, centerfielder for the LA Angels, was recently voted the MLB All-Star Game Most Valuable Player. Not only does he receive the honor of an MVP award during a ceremony, but Trout will also get a Silverado Midnight Edition for all his hard work and talent.

According to Chevy, Trout hit a home run and scored a separate run late in the game, leading to the American League’s 6-3 victory. He was given the choice between a new Camaro Convertible and the MLB All-Star Silverado, and he chose the pickup.

“Mike’s on-field performance was All-Star caliber and worthy of one of Chevrolet’s All-Stars,” said Brian Sweeney, VP of Chevrolet. “Chevrolet also encourages future All-Stars through our more than 1,500 dealers who support Chevy Youth Baseball.”

The Midnight Edition pickup comes with an all-black front end with body-colored grille, bumper, headlamp bezels, tow hooks and fog lamps; black side moldings and beltline moldings; 18-inch black painted alloy wheels special Z71 badges on the doors and black Chevrolet bowties front and rear.

Extending Car Life is Easier than You Think

Everyone wants their car to last as long as possible. That’s why we’ve put together a list of ways on extending car life, to help you get the most out of your vehicle.

According to Carcare.org, the best thing you can do is preventative care. This consists of regular maintenance and checkups, like those performed at El Dorado Chevy’s Service Center. This includes things like oil changes, tire rotations, vehicle alignment, radiator flushes, and more. Check your owner’s manual to see if it’s time for a checkup.

Driving less aggressively will also keep your car in good shape. Rapid acceleration, speeding, and heavy braking all add to the wear and tear of your car. Remember to relax when you’re behind the wheel.

Protect your car, inside and out. Cleaning is an important part of maintenance, and can even add to the resale value of your car. By regularly cleaning the exterior, you prevent excessive scratches that can lead to rust. Consider waxing your car to add an extra layer of protection.

Finally, know your car. Though our certified technicians here at El Dorado know a lot about cars, it’s important for you to know what’s important. If your car is running odd, handling funny, or making strange noises, don’t hesitate to bring it in.
