Transformers: Age of Extinction Stars Chevy Once More

Fans of Michael Bay’s Transformers are no strangers to Chevy-turned-Autobots, and the legend will live on in the fourth installment of the saga, Transformers: Age of Extinction, which hits theaters on June 27. The star Autobot, Bumblebee, will of course be back in its Camaro flesh, but we’ll also be seeing some other exciting Chevys join the cast.

A custom Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will be featured in Transformers: Age of Extinction this summer.

For starters, the multiple award-winning Corvette Stingray will be making an appearance, converting to Crosshairs. Along with the iconic Stingray, a Chevy Trax and a Sonic Rally Car will take to the big screen.

Chevy has been involved with the Transformers franchise since the beginning. The Camaro form of Bumblebee was featured in Transformers (2007), Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009), and Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011). This next chapter features a modified vintage ’67 Camaro SS, as well as a futuristic imagining of the Camaro.

“The Transformers movies have been a great partnership for Chevrolet by allowing us to introduce our vehicles to new fans, young and old, around the world,” said Tim Mahoney, chief marketing officer, Global Chevrolet. “Now for the fourth time, you’ll see a Camaro as a heroic Autobot, a fitting role for one of the stars of Chevrolet’s lineup.”

LeeAnne Stables, executive vice president of Worldwide Marketing Partnerships for Paramount Pictures, added, “The Chevrolet partnership with this iconic Michael Bay movie franchise has become one of the longest-running and most innovative movie-brand relationships in film history. This new Chevy campaign will definitely bring new and exciting elements to a global audience of Transformers movie fans around the world.”

In addition to providing the vehicles, General Motors also provided several filming locations, including the Lansing Grand River Assembly plant, the Milford Proving Ground, and the Warren Technical Center.

2015 Cadillac Escalade Is Epitome of Craftsmanship

The history of the Cadillac Escalade includes some incredible “pimped out” models owned by rock stars and other celebrities. But now, with the 2015 Cadillac Escalade, high-class luxury will come standard.

The fourth-generation 2015 Cadillac Escalade will be available later this year!

With the fourth-generation Escalade, designers were inspired by high-end furniture when it came to the interior design. They wanted the Escalade to feel handcrafted—and it is.

“An exceptional level of craftsmanship is found in the 2015 Escalade, and it all centers on the premium, layered materials and extensive use of cut-and-sew live stitching – the way fine furniture is produced,” said Eric Clough, director of design, Cadillac Interiors, in a statement. “We designed Escalade with what we call the beauty of contrast – a distinctive combination of bold, SUV character, but also the refinement of the Cadillac form vocabulary and technology.”

The 2015 Cadillac Escalade’s interior is comfortable and luxurious.

Inside, passengers will find real wood along with suede accents and ambient lighting. And it won’t just look good—it will feel good too. The seats use dual-firmness foam that will keep all passengers comfortable, even on long trips.

The luxurious 2015 Cadillac Escalade will be arriving at Bradshaw Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac later this year. Give us a call and we’ll keep you updated on all the details.

Bradshaw Celebrates 25 Years with Buick

Last week, Bradshaw Buick GMC Cadillac was recognized for its 25-year anniversary as a Buick dealership. Buick representatives stopped by our dealership to commemorate the occasion and to present Wes Bradshaw with a memorial plaque.

Bradshaw Automotive Celebrates 25 Years with Buick

This 25-year anniversary is very exciting and flattering to Bradshaw Automotive, a dealership with a humble beginning and a hard-working mentality that ultimately led us to success.

Bradshaw Automotive was founded in 1979 in Greer, South Carolina by William Bradshaw, who purchased an Oldsmobile and Cadillac dealership with his wife, Annette. Initially putting their home and life’s savings on the line, the Bradshaws worked hard to develop the dealership, eventually adding a Buick store in 1987, with Chevrolet, Acura, Honda, GMC and more following soon after.

Today, Bradshaw Automotive has grown to employ over 300 people, quite an improvement over the mere 15 employees that worked at the dealership in 1979. Bradshaw Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac has earned numerous awards as one of the five dealerships that make up Bradshaw Automotive, including being named South Carolina Dealer of the Year by DealerRater for each of its four makes.

Bradshaw Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac is extremely honored to have spent 25 years as a dealer of new and used Buick vehicles.
