Win a Chevrolet Impala or Traverse: The Official Car and Truck of
The Cleveland Auto Show
Cleveland, OH (December 27, 2012) – If you need a new vehicle and are feeling lucky, mark your calendar for Feb. 23 through March 3, 2013. That’s when the Cleveland Auto Show, presented by AutoTrader.com, opens its doors to the public at the I-X Center.
For the first time, you’ll have two chances to win a brand new vehicle simply by registering at the Official Vehicle Giveaway Booth during the Cleveland Auto Show.
“This year, we are giving away both a car and a truck in separate drawings,” says Louis A. Vitantonio, Jr., president of the Cleveland Auto Show. “We will pick two finalists every day, one for the car and one for the truck. Then on the last day, we will hold two separate drawings; one for a new 2014 Chevrolet Impala, the other for a new 2013 Traverse, which have been named the Official Car and Truck of the Show.”
Normally, the Official Giveaway Vehicle is limited to one vehicle, which is the Car of the Show.
“Thanks to the many vehicles that Chevrolet is introducing this year, they thought it was appropriate to offer two,” says Vitantonio.
“You simply couldn’t find two better vehicles to offer as the Official Giveaway Vehicles,” says Dan Sanders, chairman of the Cleveland Auto Show and president of the Progressive Auto Group in Massillon. “These vehicles represent the cutting edge of General Motors’ vehicle design and development. Both vehicles offer an exceptional driving experience, as well as cutting edge technology under the hood and in the cabin. As chairman of the Cleveland Auto Show, I’m also very proud they were chosen as the Official Car and Truck of the Cleveland Auto Show.”
As Chevrolet’s redesigned flagship sedan, the new 2014 Impala builds on the brand’s strong heritage by offering a more expressive style, refined interior, easy-to-use technology and an exhilarating driving experience. This is the 10th generation of the very popular Impala nameplate, offering sleek proportions on the exterior as well as sculpted body sides. Inside, the cabin has been redesigned with a greater emphasis on quietness and comfort.
The new 2013 Traverse crossover utility vehicle offers unexpected space for both people and cargo with enhanced style, refinement, connectivity and safety. With an improved car-like ride and handling and MyLink infotainment system, the 2013 Chevrolet Traverse is a pleasure to drive, whether you’re doing errands, heading to work, or just out for a little fun.
You can be eligible to win both vehicles by simply registering at the Official Vehicle Giveaway booth during the Show. Mail-in entries will be accepted as well. Please send mail-in entries to: The Cleveland Auto Show, Official Car Giveaway, c/o The Greater Cleveland Automobile Dealers Association, 10100 Brecksville, Rd, Brecksville, OH 44141.
Each day of the Show, two finalists will be chosen; one for the Car of the Show, the other for the Truck of the Show. The finalists will then be invited back to the Show on Sunday, March 3, 2013 for two separate grand prize drawings.
In addition to offering a chance to win the Official Car or Truck of the Show, the Cleveland Auto Show offers a full slate of family entertainment over its nine-day run. Free parking is available for the duration of the show, courtesy of your franchised new vehicle dealers. With more than 1,000 new vehicles in 1.2 million square feet of exhibit space, it is considered among the top five Auto Shows in the nation.
