Every year, the city of Sterling Heights comes together to put on one of the most exciting summer festivals in the state of Michigan. This summer, Sterlingfest will be held July 27-29.

This is the 37th annual Sterlingfest. Just like previous years, this year will be packed with summertime fun including an arts & crafts fair, lots of live music, a family midway with rides and game, and tons of the best fair food you have been waiting for all year. The festival has funnel cakes, hand-crafted ice cream, and all the fried foods you can imagine.

At the arts & crafts show, visitors can browse works from numerous local artists including watercolor painting, photographs, sculptures, and more. Artists display their work with many of their pieces available for sale. The show is set in the heart of Sterling Heights and has a street-fair-feel. All around the art booths, visitors can hear live music from the jazz and blues stage.

Here at Buff Whelan Chevrolet, we love taking our families to Sterlingfest each summer and look forward to seeing many of our friends and loyal customers there, too. What is your favorite thing about Sterlingfest in Sterling Heights, MI?

Chevrolet and Little Caesar’s Arena Team Up

Since the beginning, Chevrolet has called Detroit home, which is why it made perfect sense for Chevrolet and Little Caesar’s Arena to join forces. Chevrolet is now the official vehicle of the brand new Little Caesar’s Arena, home to the Detroit Red Wings, concerts, and other entertainment. Since 2015, Chevrolet has been the official vehicle for the Detroit Red Wings.

Paul Edwards, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet Marketing, said, “We look forward to continuing to support the Red Wings and the revitalization of our hometown, the City of Detroit, as a landmark partner in the new Little Caesars Arena — a perfect complement to our partnership with the Detroit Tigers and presence at Comerica Park.”

With this expanded partnership, Chevrolet will have an even bigger presence at the arena. The northeast entrance, along Woodward Avenue, will feature large-scale Chevrolet branding. In addition, there will be a new Chevrolet Plaza with a giant video screen that will be used for community programming and concerts.

Visitors to the arena will be able to spot the Chevrolet brand and distinctive bowtie throughout the venue, including being one of four in ice partners.

The team here at Buff Whelan Chevrolet in Sterling Heights, MI is excited about this new partnership between Chevrolet and Little Caesar’s Arena and we can’t wait to see what the future holds!

Check Out the New Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R

General Motors is rolling with the “go big or go home” motto when it comes to the sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro. It wasn’t long ago that Chevrolet revealed the Camaro ZL1 1LE performance model, but now the American automaker is upping the ante. The new Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R is a racing model designed to compete with the best of the best.

The new Camaro GT4.R is the first GT customer car from General Motors that’s available to the global market. Chevrolet joined forces with Pratt & Miller to create the track-ready model. The GT4 build means it can take to the track in the IMSA Continental Tire Sports Car Challenges Grant Sport class and Pirelli World Challenge’s GTS class.

“The Camaro GT4.R is a true racing customer car that Chevrolet is proud to support,” said Shawn Meagher, Chevrolet’s Program Manager for the Camaro GT4.R.

Under the hood of the Camaro GT4.R lies a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine that delivers a heart-pounding 650 hp. It comes perfectly complemented with Brembo brakes, adjustable traction control, and much more.

The track-oriented model is set to make its official debut at the Pirelli World Challenge. Two Camaro GT4.Rs will take the track with Tony Gaples and Lawson Aschenback behind the wheels.

We here at Buff Whelan Chevrolet are pumped to see the new Camaro GT4.R up close!
