Halloween Tips For Safe Trick or Treating - 10/22/2014

Halloween Tips For Safe Trick or Treating

CHESHIRE, Conn. – As Halloween nears every year, kids everywhere look forward to a night filled with costumes and candy, trick or treating through their neighborhood. However, before your little ones head out to show off their costumes and gather as much candy as they possibly can, it's important to discuss some Halloween Tips for Safe Trick or Treating so that everyone returns home safe and sound!

The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children have put together these 10 Halloween Tips for Safe Trick or Treating to keep your little ones protected:

  • Make sure your trick or treaters can be seen. So, choose flame-retardant costumes with reflective material or add reflective tape to their outfit and candy bag. And before they head out the door hand them a flashlight or glow stick to make sure they stick out in the dark!
  • When it comes to choosing where to trick or treat, avoid unfamiliar neighborhoods, isolated streets, and houses that are not well lit. It's best to stick with familiar routes and neighborhoods that you are comfortable with. 
  • But just because you are familiar with the neighborhood does not mean that young children should be allowed to go out alone! Make sure your younger children are always accompanied by a parent or other trusted adult and that your older children travel in groups.
  • While you are accompanying the little ones, always make sure you walk them to the door, rather than waiting at the end of the driveway! And never let them go inside unless you are with them and it is a neighbor you are familiar with.
  • The same goes for cars. Whether it's occupied or not, never let your children approach a vehicle unless you are right there with them.
  • Since trick or treating involves walking from house to house, make sure your kids understand the basic pedestrian safety rules that they should use while traveling through the neighborhood.
  • If you'd prefer an alternative to trick or treating, organizing a neighborhood or community party is a great solution. Everyone can still get together while also ensuring all the kids are safe and supervised.
  • Should your children become separated, it is important that they know their home phone number and address, as well as how to dial 911 in an emergency!
  • The best thing you can do is make sure your children understand it is important to stay alert and aware of their surroundings, and that they should report any suspicious activity to their parents or law enforcement.
  • Along with that, teach them to shout "NO!" or "This is not my mother/father!" and to make every effort to get away by kicking, screaming, and resisting if they ever do get into a dangerous situation where someone tries to get them to go somewhere, leave with them, or accept anything other than candy.


Halloween has been a fun holiday for generations, but it is important to stay aware and educate your children on how they can stay safe while out trick or treating. And as always with your OnStar subscription in any Chevy vehicle like the 2014 Chevrolet Cruze or 2014 Chevrolet Malibu, you can push the red emergency button any time to report information regarding an AMBER alert or lost child.

Happy Halloween! Richard Chevrolet, located at 1405 Highland Ave. Cheshire, CT 06410, has been family owned and operated since 1975! To this day we still follow one simple recipe: to give our customers the best ownership experience. Let us show you how much we care!

Chevy Colorado Stays Dry Through Five Water Intrusion Tests - 10/21/2014

Chevy Colorado Stays Dry Through Five Water Intrusion Tests

CHESHIRE, Conn. – The great thing about Chevrolet's new midsize Colorado is that it provides the performance and comfort to get you wherever you need to go in a compact and capable package. But, it will also keep you dry and remain durable no matter what challenges your climate or terrain pose. How do we know? GM subjected the truck to extreme testing and the Chevy Colorado stayed dry through Five Water Intrusion Tests!

So, whether you find yourself in an intense storm or needing to cross a flooded road or river, you can tackle the task confidently knowing that all of the equipment on your truck will be protected because the Chevy Colorado underwent 5 Water Intrusion Tests to keep it dry including a dunk tank, universal water test, mist test, deep fording trough test, and high pressure sprayers!

1. Dunk Tank
One of the newest tests to be implemented by Chevrolet, the Dunk Tank Test, simulates static water fording to emulate what would happen if you were idling in deep water flood conditions. This specific tests allows engineers to examine and improve the underbody and chassis components like electrical wires and venting systems.

2. Universal Water Test
If you're caught in a severe rainstorm, you can be sure that your Colorado will keep you dry because the truck's door and window seals have proven they are tough enough for the job during the Universal Water Test which utilizes 330 nozzles to spray 825 gallons of water per minute at all angles of the truck for 8 minutes straight.

3. Mist Test
Compared to a torrential downpour, less intense misty conditions can also pose problems for some vehicles, but not the Colorado! The Mist Test ensures the Colorado is protected against fine mist that can creep into parts of your vehicle that large water drops cannot, which could end up creating a leak when water wicks through weatherstrips with low compression.

4. Deep Fording Trough Test
For the more adventurous or off-road situations, Chevy's Deep Fording Trough Test subjects the midsize truck to situations you could encounter during slow treks through water, like crossing a stream. The automaker's 15-meter deep outdoor fording trough allows engineers to ensure the water intrusion does not compromise transmission fluids and powertrain components.

5. High Pressure Sprayers
Last but not least, to make sure your truck won't be damaged if you use a high pressure sprayer on it to remove all the mud after and off-road adventure, GM simulates an extreme version with high pressure sprayers to make sure charge ports, powertrain vents, fuel vent systems, and vehicle air induction systems are all protected.

Like we said, it's all wrapped up in a compact, capable, and convenient package, but the Chevrolet Colorado offers big features! Come see for yourself what it has to offer at our Wallingford Area Chevrolet Dealer! Richard Chevrolet, located at 1405 Highland Ave. Cheshire, CT 06410, has been family owned and operated since 1975!

Is This The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro? - 10/17/2014

Is This The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro?

CHESHIRE, Conn. – The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro has been spied out testing in Detroit near General Motors headquarters, and while the test mules don't suggest any drastic changes there will be a few updates for the next-gen model! So is this rendering from Top Speed the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro?!

From what many of the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro spy shots have revealed, riding on GM's Alpha platform, the 2016 model will feature better proportions, a cleaner shape, and a small-block exhaust note. Plus, it will become lighter, sleeker, and more dynamic thanks to the use of the Alpha platform. Overall, thanks to the current model's overwhelming sales success and first place standing in its segment, the next model will stick with the 1967-69 theme. That goes for the interior as well, which channels 1969; but it's expected that Chevy will incorporate top-notch additions.

While what's under the hood is a bit more of a mystery, the Camaro SS 1LE and Z/28 give us faith that the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro will be nothing short of impressive. A seven-speed manual and eight-speed automatic are expected for transmission options, but we'll ket you know when we know for sure!

We have no doubt that the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro will be even more amazing, capable, and competitive than the current model, so stay tuned for updates! Richard Chevrolet, located at 1405 Highland Ave. Cheshire, CT 06410, has been family owned and operated since 1975!

2015 Chevrolet Silverado Toughnology Concept Truck Debut - 10/01/2014

2015 Chevrolet Silverado Toughnology Concept Truck Debut

CHESHIRE, Conn. – Chevrolet has been busy at the Texas State Fair showing off all the latest that the brand has to offer including a surprise 2015 Chevrolet Silverado Toughnology Concept Truck Debut! What is the Silverado Toughnology concept truck, you ask? Read on to find out how Chevrolet is changing the name of the pickup truck game!

When it comes to the competitive pickup truck market, it's all about capability, performance, and of course safety. Even though the Silverado was named the 2014 North American Truck of the Year, Chevy knows that to be the best you must keep innovating, so that's exactly what they have done with the debut of the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado Toughnology concept truck! This truck features high-strength steel, a simulated raw steel appearance, and advanced connectivity that makes it lighter, stronger, and more efficient than most vehicles which are made of conventional carbon steel.

2015 Chevrolet Silverado Toughnology Concept Truck Debut

With the Silverado Toughnology concept truck, Chevrolet wanted to utilize materials that delivered a strong value to customers while also providing the best strength to support capability – a job for high-strength steel! Not only does high-strength steel offer the same strength as carbon steel while being up to 30% lighter, but it also costs significantly less than aluminum which is reflected in the vehicle's price. The truck's lighter weight and top-notch capability, thanks to the use of high-strength steel, translates to greater efficiency which is evident in the truck's performance ratings – the EcotTec3 5.3L V-8 engine offers an EPA-estimated 23 mpg on the highway and maximum trailering capacity of 11,200 pounds, while the available 6.2L V-8 engine and all-new eight-speed automatic transmission boosts trailering capacity to 12,000 pounds!

The 2015 Chevrolet Silverado Toughnology concept truck features a raw steel appearance complimented by black accents, as well as:

  • Chevrolet Accessory 22-inch wheels mounted on off-road tires
  • Chevrolet Accessories grille insert
  • Tubular assist steps
  • Soft, folding tonneau cover

Keeping Kids Safe with Chevy Vehicle Safety Features - 09/23/2014

Keeping Kids Safe with Chevy Vehicle Safety Features
2015 Colorado headrest feature in action.
CHESHIRE, Conn. – During National Child Passenger Safety Week, Chevrolet joined forces with the SafeKids Worldwide organization to protect our children by spreading the word about the importance of child safety seats. But that's not all the automaker is doing – Top of the line safety features in Chevrolet vehicles are designed to keep kids safe! At Richard Chevrolet, the safety of our children is important 365 days a year which is why we are proud to offer Chevrolet vehicles like the Chevy Impala and new Colorado midsize truck that are equipped with special vehicle safety features to keep children safe!

Not only does the new midsize 2015 Chevy Colorado offer a special back seat safety feature to keep kids safe, but it's the only truck in its segment that does! Many child restraint manufacturers require at least 80% of the child safety seat to be supported by the back seat so the Colorado's patent-pending rear seat cushion extension makes use of the removable headrest and a rear passenger side seat cushion to better accommodate the larger child restraint seats available today!

The updated Chevy Impala's backseat is also child-safety-seat-friendly! The sedan's rear seat is equipped with easy access child restraint LATCH anchorages that are functional with booster seats, forward-facing child restraints, and rear-facing child restraints to make keeping your little one safe simple; not to mention convenient for growing families! Plus, with added space in the back, front seat passengers don't have to sacrifice their comfort either!

If your child has grown out of their booster seat and now meets the height and weight requirements to use just a seat belt, it's important to make sure they wear it correctly; not behind their back or under their arm. Chevrolet designers created plastic shoulder belt comfort guides that attach to the rear seat or side trim so that the seat belt can be adjusted to be more comfortable on smaller passengers – increasing the odds they will want to wear it correctly!

Chevy thought of it all! Engineers even designed a glow-in-the-dark emergency trunk release that can be easily located by a child if they became trapped in a trunk! Last but not least, you're probably familiar with rear door safety locks that prevent your little ones from opening the rear doors from the inside.

Keeping our children safe is something we need to think about every single time we get in the car and one easy way to do that is to make sure they are buckled in correctly.

National Child Passenger Safety Week - 09/18/2014

National Child Passenger Safety Week

CHESHIRE, Conn. – Did you know that car crashes are the leading cause of death for children ages 1-13? The good news is that those tragedies can be prevented! It's National Child Passenger Safety Week, so join us in taking the initiative to arm ourselves with the information we need to know to protect our little ones!

While it's important for your family to buckle up whenever they get in the car, where and how they buckle up plays a huge role in keeping them safe. In a recent survey by SafeKids.org, 7 out of 10 parents didn't know that seat belts don't fit children properly until they are 4 feet 9 inches tall and weigh between 80-100 pounds. By allowing your child to move from a booster seat to just a seat belt before that puts them at risk for severe abdominal, head, and spinal injuries in the event of an accident. That risk can be reduced by about 45% through the use of a booster seat though!

However, it's also important to make sure your child's safety seat is installed correctly to keep them as safe as possible. The tricky part is that with so many safety seats on the market and so many varieties of vehicles, a correct installation depends specifically on your car and safety seat. By reviewing the owners manual of both your car and safety seat you can make sure your child is protected, or you can find a local safety seat check and have the professionals show you how!

The safety of your children is priceless, so this National Child Passenger Safety Week make sure you take a few minutes to check that their seat is installed correctly to ensure they are as safe a possible when you hit the road.

Chevrolet Announces Z71 Package for Tahoe & Suburban - 09/09/2014

Chevrolet Announces Z71 Package for Tahoe & Suburban

CHESHIRE, Conn. – The redesigned 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban were an instant hit when they launched earlier this year, and the automaker isn't about to let that momentum fizzle out. Building on the SUV's early success, Chevrolet just announced a Z71 package for the Tahoe & Suburban which will incorporate impressive new features and variants that customers want to see!

Unfortunately, that's about all that the automaker said. Chevrolet announced a Z71 package for the Tahoe & Suburban will be available soon, but details and production timing are still unknown. What we do know is that the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and 2015 Chevrolet Suburban will come available with three attractive new features even without the Z71 package – OnStar 4G LTE, wireless phone charging capability, and hands-free liftgate.

Based off what Chevy has done with the Silverado, it is rumored that the new Z71 package could include a hill descent control feature, a locking rear differential, underbody cladding, all-terrain tires, recovery tow hooks, and Rancho shocks for better off-road performance. We will have to wait until further details are released later in September to know for sure.

But, if you want to experience everything the new 2015 Tahoe and Suburban have to offer, stop by our Chevrolet Dealership serving Southington, CTRichard Chevrolet, located at 1405 Highland Ave. Cheshire, CT 06410, has been family owned and operated since 1975!

This year, 29 trucks/utilities have been named candidates for the Truck/Utility of the year.
