Before a highly-anticipated vehicle is released, there tends to be a lot of hype, meaning a lot of car geeks are trying to sneak a peek at the model before the automaker officially announces it. We just happen to be car geeks here at Huber Chevy, and we’re freaking out about the recent spying of the new mid-engine Chevy Corvette, due to be released for the 2020 model year.
Two models were spotted being tested on the Nürburgring in Germany. While still in their strange, black-and-white automotive camouflage, this most recent look is vastly improved from previous caught-glimpses where the 2020 Corvette was decked out in loose black curtains. Details identified in the recent spying include large intake vents on both sides of the vehicle and a significant splitter that comes out under the front lip of the vehicle. There is also a prominent vent, very much like a race car, stationed right in front of the rear wheels. Of course, the brand-new Corvette also features the model line’s iconic four-lamp taillights in the rear. Also for the rear, this ‘Vette sports a square-tipped four-pipe exhaust system.
Maybe Chevrolet let us steal this glimpse to heighten the hype: If this is the case, they sure were successful, because we can’t wait to see this gorgeous mid-engine Chevy Corvette hit the streets.
Fans of the Silverado family of trucks are anticipating Chevrolet’s introduction of the truck’s next generation. Totally redesigned for 2019, the Silverado is getting a new look, new technology, and new features, up to and including some recently-unveiled new towing technology. These towing systems will be put in place to make the process of towing and hauling safer and easier than ever before, adding an extra layer of innovative confidence to the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado.
The myChevrolet app has been around for a few years. Now smartphone users and Silverado drivers can use the app to enhance their truck’s towing. You get a glossary of towing terminology, towing checklists, and a trailer lighting test at the tip of your fingers.
Among the new towing technologies is a system put in place to monitor whether or not the trailer is connected to the vehicle. If the trailer becomes detached, the truck’s horns and lights are activated, and users with an OnStar subscription will be notified.
An end-of-the-summer road trip is a great way to bring the whole family together. Whether you’re visiting landmarks in the region or traveling across the country, taking any one of the many cars, trucks, or SUVs in the Chevy lineup is bound to make your ride more enjoyable. Not only are Chevy models dependable, but they also come with state-of-the-art infotainment and safety, comfortable designs, and great fuel economy.
One of the best summer road trip destinations in Nebraska is Carhenge in Alliance, Nebraska. A replica of Stonehenge built out of old cars, Carhenge is a tribute to American automakers. Chevy sedans are great for short day trips like a drive to Carhenge, especially the Impala and Malibu. Both of these cars seat five people, and the Impala was named the “2017 Best Large Car for the Money” by US News, which means you get more value for your money.
Niobrara State Park
For those who love the outdoors, check out the Niobrara State Park. This scenic area is truly stunning, and you can easily find some of the best camping spots in the state hidden away in the hills over the river. Throw your camping gear in the back of the Chevy Colorado or Silverado 1500 and start your adventure. The Colorado TRD Pro, in particular, is perfect for off-road trails, and you’ll have plenty of space for equipment.
Gulf Of Mexico
You can head to the Gulf of Mexico for an extended summer trip. You can make it to Galveston, Texas—a vacation-destination island city—in about 16 hours, though you’ll need to plan for stops along the way. An SUV or crossover like the Tahoe is perfect for long trips. The Tahoe seats seven, it has smartphone connectivity, and there’s a standard rear vision camera to help prevent collisions while reversing.

Nebraska’s Wild West
Explore and experience our nation’s history by traversing Nebraska’s Badlands – such as venturing through Oglala National Grasslands – and the lush pine forests of the Sandhills.

In early spring, over 500,000 cranes land at the Platte River.
