Chevrolet Reunites Military Family with Annual Army-Navy Game Gift

For the past five years, there is one football game that has been more exciting than the rest for the Chevrolet family. No, we’re not talking about the Super Bowl, but in fact the annual Army-Navy Game. This year, the automaker continued its tradition of giving back to our military members by reuniting one family and gifting them a new 2015 Chevy Colorado.

Chevy’s partnership with the Wish for Heroes charitable organization made this year’s game one to remember. United States Army Sgt. Jonathon Preston Thompson surprised his wife and daughter by meeting them on the field at the game. Chevrolet then added to the reunion by presenting the family with the all-new mid-size pickup.

“As we’ve seen with the Thompsons and millions of others, military families make huge sacrifices for our country, and it feels good to celebrate Sgt. Thompson’s homecoming with a brand-new truck,” said Dan Akerson, former General Motors chairman and CEO and US Naval Academy graduate.

We at Bill Walsh Chevrolet love to hear stories like this one where our military heroes are shown gratitude for their sacrifice. After the annual Army-Navy Game gift, we’re guessing the Thompsons will have a merry Christmas indeed.

Chevy Colorado’s Performance Earns It Truck of the Year Award

We at Bill Walsh Chevrolet were thrilled to hear the new Colorado was named Motor Trend’s Truck of the Year. Despite having over ten different competitors for the title, the Colorado won in an astonishing unanimous vote.

“After days of testing, hundreds of miles on the road, and our most rigorous truck testing program to date, our editors unanimously selected the Chevy Colorado as our 2015 Truck of the Year,” said Edward Loh, Motor Trend’s editor-in-chief. “Colorado is a smart, capable, and refreshingly honest truck.”

According to Chevy, the judges were particularly impressed by the Chevy Colorado’s performance. The model comes with a stellar 3.6-liter DOHC V6 that’s perfectly paired with a six-speed automatic. The result generates over 300 horsepower. Not only that, the Colorado gets 26 highway mpg. No wonder Motor Trend said the Colorado makes a statement about fuel efficiency for trucks.

With all this and more, it’s no wonder the Colorado is everyone’s top pick.
