Just follow these simple rules after printing out the collection of stencils and craft the perfect pumpkin once the drawing is done. And don’t forget to have some fun!

  1. Cut a circle through either the stem end at the top of the pumpkin, or the bottom of the pumpkin to make a cap – we recommend the stem and at the top.
  2. Then, use a large spoon to scoop out the pumpkin’s innards – seeds and pulp.
  3. Follow the dotted lines when cutting out the stencil to have instructions handy. Tape the stencil onto the pumpkin and make sure it’s flat against the surface.
  4. First trace the design by poking holes with a sharp but small tool, like a needle. Now you can remove the stencil from the pumpkin.
  5. Just like a game of connect the dots, cut off your stencil. Push out the cut-out pieces (grey pieces on the stencil) by on them from within the pumpkin. Be gentle.
  6. All that’s left is to place a candle or LED light inside the pumpkin to give it that eerie glow.

We can’t wait to help our customers out at Miami Lakes Automall. We hope you come by for a rewarding and spooky good time in our showroom. Come see the newest generation Corvette, the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 Stringray is here!

The All-New 2019 Chevrolet Blazer Is Ready To Go

Thursday, January 17th, 2019

Photo credit: Chevrolet

Something special is coming soon to the SUV market, the return of the Chevrolet Blazer. Chevy is making waves with the reincarnation of one of their best-selling vehicles. This time the Blazer will be a completely reimagined vehicle. The new vehicle will hit the crossover and SUV market with a fresh take.

The last time the Chevy Blazer was around, it ran from 2001-2008 as a mid-size, body-on-frame SUV. Chevrolet is banking that no one will mind that this new Chevrolet Blazer doesn’t resemble the previous Blazer. The new model will make the fourth Chevrolet SUV in their line-up including the small Trax, Equinox, newly announced Blazer, and the largest entry, the Traverse.

New Chevy Blazer Features

The unibody platform is new and is based off the same one used for the GMC Acadia. There will be three trim levels from the base model, to the sporty RS and finally the top-tier Premier trim. The Premier is luxurious and carries the trusted 3.6-Liter V6 Pentastar engine that provides 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. The entry powertrain is a 2.5-Liter four-cylinder with 193 horsepower and 188 lb-ft of torque. The nine-speed transmission is equipped for both engines.

The 2019 Chevrolet Blazer will have both front and all-wheel-drive versions. The 4,500-pound towing capacity comes with the larger engine. Drivers will love the sleek look and power, with the Chevrolet Camaro serving as an influence. The Blazer carries a large grille, tall hood, narrow headlights and sculpted sheet metal. The cabin comes with round air vents inside the vehicle, dual-zone climate controls are standard with a panoramic roof and hands-free power liftgate are optional for the Blazer.

Inside The Latest Chevrolet Blazer

The interior also has Chevrolet’s newest MyLink system with an infotainment system that contains an 8-inch touchscreen, Bose audio and 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will be available with up to six USB ports for the driver and passengers to enjoy. The latest safety technologies are equipped with adaptive cruise control and rear camera mirror. The all-new 2019 Chevy Blazer is set to be available in late January and goes for $29,995 MSRP (plus destination fee).

The Hit The Road package will add cross bars for the roof rack and black assist steps, plus significant safety items like emergency braking, forward collision alert and lane-keep-assist. The Hit The Road package costs $1,050. Notable exterior options like a body-colored grille bar is set for $395 and an illuminated Chevy bowtie emblem costs $395 and a unique shade of red called Cajun Red Tintcoat for $495. Rear seat infotainment system with a DVD player runs $1,995 and the sport pedal kit costs $165.

Silverado Stays True To Its Name

Monday, January 7th, 2019

The Chevrolet Silverado finished 2018 with very similar numbers to 2017. This success happened despite rival brands Ford and Ram introducing all-new generation pickup variations. The Silverado sold 585,581 vehicles, more than 49,00 more vehicles than the rival Ram trucks over the course of 2018. A large reason for the sustained success came on the strength of the new Durabed truck bed produced by Chevrolet. A high-strength steel bed that was larger by 10 cubic feet from the previous model and included Best-in-class cargo volume, box length, and box depth. A stronger hauling experience for customers was matched by an improved interior.

Chevy Giving What Customers Want

Across the industry, the latest wave of pickup trucks hitting the market included a focus on increased levels of comfort for drivers; Chevrolet kept up with those demands. A wide range of choices begins with the least expensive base model, the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Work Truck begins at $29,795 MSRP (plus destination fee). Drivers would want power from their pickup, but not settle for a lackluster interior for superior power. For customers that want the most out of their pickups, they would opt for the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 High Country.

Drivers in 2018 fell in love with the High Country interior appointed with leather upholstery, a large 8.0-inch touchscreen with navigation, ventilated and heated front seats and heated rear seats for passengers. Modern technology surrounds the interior from wireless charging to multiple USB ports for the driver and passengers to use. Many made the 2019 Silverado High Country their own and didn’t have to pay a huge premium to get the best Silverado on the market. The crew cab trim for the High Country starts at $57,795 MSRP (plus destination fee).

Where The 2019 Silverado Stands

The 2019 Silverado placed in the pickup Olympics. Even with the competition being fierce, Chevrolet knew they had a good product on their hands and 2019 looks to be an even more impressive year for Chevy. Americans have a growing obsession with the full-size pickup truck segment and the Silverado is one of the reasons why.

“The Silverado has been making a slow transition to the 2019 model year. Once full production gets online in the starting months of 2019, will get a better idea of the Silverado’s market presence,” said Jeremy Acevedo, data strategist at Edmunds.

What To Expect In A Chevy

Chevrolet owners can expect great value and durability; the latest technology, well-engineered vehicles and recognition from top automotive sources. Interested buyers will be happy with the latest Chevrolet Silverado and its strong powertrain options. The 5.3-Liter V8 eight-speed automatic and 6.2-Liter V8 with 10-speed automatic transmission both offer more than a 5 percent improvement in city fuel economy, now hitting 17 city MPG. The highway miles per gallon has gotten better as well, getting drivers up to 23 mpg for the 2019 Silverado. Models with the four-wheel drive and 6.2-Liter V8 gain an impressive fuel economy of 16 city and 20 highway MPG. The latest Chevy trucks were successful in 2018 and look to have another fantastic year in 2019.

Test Drive Chevrolet With Us

We have many options to help our customers drive the all-new 2019 Chevy Silverado. We welcome you to test-drive with us and experience all the technology and comfort offered in the Silverado. Our professional team is ready to assist you with any selling, buying, leasing or trade-in offers.

Visit even if you didn’t buy from us and allow our friendly service team to help out. Located at 16600 NW 57th Ave in Miami Lakes, Florida.

Chevrolet Has More Mid-Size Pickup Options On the Way

Ever wanted to own a mid-size Chevrolet pickup truck? For Chevy fans expecting more mid-size pickup options, the wait is over with the 2019 Colorado lineup. Chevrolet has heard the requests and will now offer two brand new trims and focus their attention on their latest off-road beast, the Colorado ZR2 off-road Bison. General Motors will emphasize their pickup options as being incredible (they are) with incredible prices (affordable and attractive) for the new Bison ZR2 and both of the new special editions of the Chevrolet Colorado, the Z71 Trail Runner and the street-focused RST. All of these options are apart of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado lineup that has made up a large portion of sales as Americans have a growing obsession with the mid-size pickup truck segment.

“The success of Colorado helped reignite the midsize truck segment, which increased 27 percent from 2015 to 2017. It changed what customers expected from a midsize truck, brought new customers to Chevrolet and has inspired competitors to follow Chevy’s lead,” said Sandor Piszar, Chevrolet’s Director of Truck Marketing.

Pricing For the Latest Chevrolet Pickup Options

General Motors has listed the ZR2 Bison, with the V6 engine and extended cab, at just $47,050 MSRP (plus destination fee). Crew cab models start at $48,650 MSRP (plus destination fee).
The Colorado ZR2 Bison is set to hit dealer showrooms with a sticker price of $48,045 MSRP (destination fee) for the gasoline-powered Extended Cab truck. This represents a $5,750 increase from the standard ZR2 in the same body style, but offers much more in the way of exhilaration and drivability. To gain the four-door option, owners can expect a slight raise of $1,600 to that price for either the extended or crew cab version of the ZR2.

What About Those Two New Trims?

Available for consumers in a new Z71 Trail Runner package, this package adds the ZR2’s skid plates and rock sliders with a fresh set of 17-inch wheels and 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac tires. Drivers will embrace the bold look of the blacked-out CHEVROLET grille first shown on the Bison. Not quite the Bison in terms of its off-road prowess, but definitely aggressive and capable of handling adventure for owners.

Both the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and 2019 Chevrolet Colorado will offer the available RST trim. This package will be grouped as a mid-grade trim that begins at $32,195 MSRP (plus destination fee). The RST comprises the color-keyed exterior gear and large 20-inch wheels. The $21,495 base model 2WD truck comes with a six-speed manual transmission and is a solid option.

Handle the Off-Road With A Pickup Unlike Any Other

Fans of the Bison know Chevrolet produced an off-road champion with their Colorado ZR2 Bison, an off-road powerhouse made in a detailed collaboration with aftermarket house American Expedition Vehicles (AEV). The 2019 Chevrolet ZR2 Bison is off-road ready with six skid plates, 31-inch Goodyear Duratracs, a snorkel, heavy-duty bumpers and even includes an optional diesel powertrain. And that’s just the start!

Similar to the standard ZR2, the Bison rests on a track that is 3.5 inches wider than the entry Colorado. The ZR2 Bison carries locking electronic differentials, 3.42 rear axle ratio, and a two-inch suspension lift with Multimatic DSSV dampers capable of handling bumpy, less traveled roads with ease. Few vehicles on the market are capable of taking owners on an adventure right out of the gate like the Bison can. Between all these new options, 2018 has been a banner year for Chevrolet pickup line-up and will continue in 2019.

Chevrolet Introduces New Small Block V8 ZZ6 EFI Engine

Monday, November 5th, 2018
Chevy Engine Miami Lakes Automall

Chevrolet has a surprise for fans of horsepower in the form of an aftermarket V8 engine. The new ZZ6 EFI engine was featured under the hood of a classic 1967 Chevrolet C/10 pickup truck at the 2018 SEMA show in Las Vegas. With upgraded components that increase the power to 418 horsepower and new electronically controlled fuel injection support, the ZZ6 EFI takes a modern approach of V8 engine capabilities. The engine is small and compact, a part of small block Chevy engines, but provides impressive power to the tune of 418 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. Quite impressive, Chevrolet.

More On the ZZ6 EFI

The only catch with this new engine is the cost. We’re not sure what Chevrolet will charge for it, but we do know that Chevrolet brought 30 crate engines to Las Vegas. Chevrolet hopes to gain attention from the vehicle modifiers that are the most enthusiastic customers of these crate engines. The custom hot rod and modern restoration companies are going to be clamoring to get their hands on this latest small block V8 engine with its new technology. Pickup truck buyers are more likely to buy aftermarket parts and accessories, like the ZZ6 EFI, more so than any other vehicle owner. Upgrades are approximately amounting to 29 percent of total vehicle-accessory sales, which is the highest amount across the automotive industry.

The C/10 pickup displayed at SEMA containing the ZZ6 EFI carried significant modifications that included 20-inch wheels, a lowered suspension and custom Chevy bumpers. There was also a restored 1978 K10 Silverado pickup that held a L96 big block V8 crate engine. These are two impressive old-school vehicles that have the latest Chevrolet engines inside of them, providing a modern retro appeal that can only be found in custom concepts. That’s what makes events like SEMA so fun for both automakers and those invited to attend.

A Rich History of Powertrains

For over 63 years, Chevrolet small block engines have paved the way for strength and power. From the 1955 265 CID to the latest 2018 ZZ6 EFI engine, Chevrolet has built trust among fans and critics alike. When looking for the Chevrolet dealership to go to and trust, there’s no selection or customer care better than the Miami Lakes Automall experience.

Simply follow these rules after printing out the collection of stencils and craft the perfect pumpkin once the drawing is done.

  1. Cut a circle through either the stem end at the top of the pumpkin, or the bottom of the pumpkin to make a cap – we recommend the stem and at the top.

The Goliath Has Arrived: This New Chevy Silverado Pickup Is Monstrous

Thursday, October 4th, 2018
Hennessey Goliath Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: Silverado

Every so often a vehicle is produced that sends chills, provides goosebumps and invokes the image of a towing presence that is rarely matched. This unique feeling is magnified with the Hennessey Goliath 6X6, a special edition 2019 Chevy Silverado Trail Boss Z71. That’s right, a 6X6 with a stunning presence and even more impressive off-road performance to match. The Hennessey, not to be confused with Hennessy the alcoholic drink, is a company responsible for helping with the latest Silverado model. The Goliath 6X6, as its known, took the Trail Boss Z71 model and gave it multiple doses of steroids with an overwhelming amount of new features and upgrades.

Stronger Than Strong

With the 6X6 conversion, an additional axle, wheels, tires and brakes were applied with an all-new rear suspension system to pair with the massive eight-inch lift kit. Most vehicles capable of going off-road are built with some features that still have to be added; not this pickup. Heavy-duty isn’t quite the right word to describe the Goliath 6X6 either, even though that’s the technical designation. The Hennessey team figured one of the ultimate engines offered by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) wasn’t good enough. The Hennessey team replaced the 6.2-Liter V8 HEMI engine with their very own HPE700 Supercharged engine. The 2.9-Liter supercharger system has a stainless steel exhaust with 705 horsepower and 675 lb-ft of torque. A vehicle like this shouldn’t be able to move as quickly as it does, but that’s part of what makes this one of the rarest trucks ever produced.

Everyone on the road will be able to stop the large HENNESSEY graphics and name plate on both the front and rear bumpers. The 2019 Goliath 6X6 includes a roll bar, LED lights, and is unlike any other vehicle on the road today. The strength of the vehicle is not just how powerful it is, but the flexibility to go anywhere.

Not Just Strong, Fast and Offroad Capable

Consider the 0-60 time of around four and a half seconds (the exact results aren’t available just yet), and realize that this is a massive truck, not a muscle car. That speed alone is enough to provide a spooky feeling, but only for those who aren’t inside the massive vehicle that handles any terrain it faces with ease thanks to large BF Goodrich 37-inch off-road tires, customer Hennessey 20-inch wheels and the top-notch engineering by Chevrolet and Hennessey combined that allow for traveling on roads less traveled. The base price of the 2019 Goliath 6X6 is $375,000 (MSRP) with the optional upgrade to a 808 horsepower stroker motor upgrade, Brembo brake system and custom interior upgrade. The amount of vehicles produced will be only 24 units, so this will be quite an exclusive vehicle.

Where To Drive The Latest Chevrolet Pickups

The latest Chevy pickups are available all in one place, including the 2019 Chevy Silverado LT Trail Boss. We welcome you to go on a test-drive to experience all the latest technology and comfort offered in the new Silverado. Our professional sales team is ready to assist you with any selling, buying, leasing or trade-in offers.

We hope to be your guide if you’re in need of any maintenance work or repairs to your current vehicle. We’ll happily help you out, even if you didn’t buy with us.

Drive the “Most American Car” With These Two Chevy Vehicles

Thursday, August 23rd, 2018

Photo credit: Chevy

The Chevrolet Corvette was rated the “Most American” car in a recent university study. This is fitting as the Corvette has long been heralded as “America’s Sports Car”. The survey was developed by the Kogod Made in America Auto Index and reported by the National Corvette Museum in a news release.

“With a top score of 83.5 points, Corvette earned bragging rights by racking up the points within seven criteria including profit margin; labor; research and development; inventory, capital and other expenses; engine; transmission; and body, chassis and electrical components,” the museum noted in reporting research by the Center for Automotive Research to determine “total domestic content.”

How the Research Was Conducted

The beginning of the survey began as far back as 2013. Frank DuBois, an associate professor of the International Business Kogod school at American University in Washington, D.C. set out to find which vehicle was the most highly regarded American vehicle. While DuBois had his mind made up that no vehicle had ever been truly American made since dating back to the original Ford Model T, “You could argue that some of those parts were mined or manufactured out of the country,” according to DuBois. Following the top spot of the Chevrolet Corvette, finishing first out of 544 vehicles, was the Chevrolet Volt. For those that had any question about which brand is the most American, just look at this report. The report came up with a numerical value attached to various components to determine which vehicle would end up being labeled “Most American”.

Criteria to Determine Outcome

Profit margin is the first measurement used in the report, and points are earned based on the location of the automaker’s headquarters. A vehicle would receive 6 points if the automaker was based out ot the United States. If not, they would receive no points. Labor was a secondary requirement and if an automaker had their products made elsewhere, they wouldn’t receive any points; if they did they would gain 6 points. Research & development for the vehicle could earn an additional 6 points if both were done in the United States. If they were developed, but not assembled or vice versa in the U.S., they would only receive 3 points instead of 6 points. Inventory, capital and other expenses amounted to 11 points if the vehicle was assembled in the United States.

The largest proponent of the research was based off where the engine was produced. If the engine was produced in the United States, the vehicle would gain 14 points and zero points if the automaker didn’t make the vehicle in the United States. The transmission amounts to 7 points and follows the same rules as the engine. Finally, the body, chassis and electrical components made up fifty percent of the total vehicle score. The AALA percentage was divided into two to derive the total score. After all was said and done, Chevy took home both top two spots.

More on the Winner and Runner-up

While the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette is beloved for all the speed and high-performance ability, the Chevy Volt has enjoyed earning the love of customers for having unmatched fuel efficiency. For those looking for a compact car that is as American as they come and provides 43 city and 42 highway MPG, look no further than the 2018 Chevy Volt. A plug-in hybrid vehicle that offers up to 53 electric emission-free miles and a total of 420 miles with a full charge and full tank of gas. A 2018 IIHS Top Safety pick award winner, the 2018 Chevy Volt is ideal for many.

Drive Chevy With Us

Of course, if speed is what drives the final choice, there’s hardly a sports car that can match the up to 755 horsepower found in the hand-assembled 6.2-Liter LT5 supercharged Corvette engine. For a chance to get a good look at either American made vehicle, there’s a place where both vehicles are available right now.

If you’ve been looking for a vehicle that has the power and high-performance you’ve always wanted, look no further than the “Most American” brand new 2019 Chevrolet Corvette. We have them in stock and are waiting for you to see for yourself. We also carry the latest 2018 Chevrolet Volt, which provides all the reliability of Chevy with high-end fuel efficiency.

Stop by Miami Lakes Automall today. We’re ready to help you with your car buying, leasing, selling and trade-in needs. We hope to provide a remarkable customer service experience for you every step of the way. When you need to have any maintenance work, don’t forget to make an appointment and bring it in for our trusted service team to look after your vehicle.

2019 Chevy Silverado: More Advanced Than Ever

Thursday, August 9th, 2018

2019-Chevy-Ssilverado-1500-Miami-Lakes

Photo credit: Chevy

The latest Silverado from Chevrolet is an improved and better developed light-duty pickup truck. Through upgrading their truck bed, parts, new frame and overall interior,  Chevy knew they had to name their truck bed to differentiate itself from other companies. Simply put, the new Chevy “Durabed” truck bed is way more advanced than what is offered with the competition. The 2019 Silverado increased its bed size by at least 10 cubic feet from the previous model and can boast having a Best-in-class cargo volume, box length and box depth.

Chevy Presents the Durabed

The Durabed is made from a high-strength steel and handles pressure unlike any other truck bed Chevrolet has produced. Consider this: the new 2019 Silverado is so tough it can withstand 72518.9 pounds of pressure-per-square-inch. That 2019 Silverado rating is over double the previous Silverado rating from the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado truck. This increased durability means customers will have a vehicle that handles heavy use without dents hurting the Durabed exterior. With stronger materials, it’s a better product and overall satisfaction for owners – just what Chevy intended.

“The bed is the heart and soul of any pickup, so we made several improvements to the bed of the all-new Silverado to give our customers an even better hauling experience,” said Tim Herrick, executive chief engineer, Full-Size Trucks, General Motors.

Into the Resigned and Stronger Silverado

Updated technology shines through with General Motors exclusive 3 x 7-inch configurable color head-up display, 8-inch configurable driver information center and rear camera mirror. The upgrades extend to the powertrain as well with more choices than ever before. All engines are paired with the choice of three available transmissions, including six-, eight- and 10-speed automatic transmissions. The upcoming 3.0-Liter diesel engine is coming soon, and the Crew Cab Silverado models have increased payload up to 14 percent more. The 4.3-Liter V6 provides a maximum towing capacity of 8,000 pounds, the 5.3-Liter V8 with the Max Towing Package provides a maximum towing capacity of 11,600 pounds and the 6.2-Liter with four-wheel drive, with the Maximum Towing Package, provides owners an impressive maximum towing capacity of 12,200 pounds, an over 500 pound increase from the previous model.

Exceeding Expectations

Powerful and strong, many would expect the 2019 Silverado to not offer improved fuel economy – they would be wrong. The 5.3-Liter V8 eight-speed automatic and 6.2-Liter V8 with 10-speed automatic transmission both offer more than a 5 percent improvement in city fuel economy, now reaching 17 city MPG. The highway miles per gallon has improved as well, reaching 23 mpg for the 2019 Silverado. Models with the four-wheel drive and 6.2-Liter V8 can get a fuel economy of 16 city and 20 highway MPG; impressive.

2019 Chevy Silverado – More options Than a Swiss Army Knife

The latest generation Chevrolet Silverado has taken the pickup industry and turned it on its head. Not many trucks can hold a candle to the 2019 Chevy Silverado, simply due to the innovation and high performance that makes this all-new Silverado as good as it gets. With six powertrains and a total of eight trims, customers are provided with a bevy of choices. Customers will love the fact that each engine, with the exception of the 3.0-Liter Diesel Inline-6, stocks a fuel management system to provide better fuel efficiency. This includes the all-new 2.7-Liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which provides upgraded performance and gas mileage. We’ll get into all the nice, new details of this remarkable new generation Silverado pickup below.

More on the Silverado Options – Including 2019 Silverado Trim

The various trims go as follows: Work Truck, Custom, Custom Trail Boss, LT, RST, LT Trail Boss, LTZ and High Country. The latest 2019 Silverado 1500 will include a lighter, yet bigger and longer pickup size. The wheelbase is 3.9 inches longer than the 2018 Silverado and the overall length exactly 1.6 inches longer. So does bigger mean better? If a driver is looking for more legroom than yes! The rear-seat in the four-door crew cab has grown from 40.9 inches to 43.8 inches. Customers can also expect to haul more with every 2019 Silverado gaining a larger truck bed, nearly seven inches of extra floor width, and the available power-operated tailgate is a great new feature. The bed floor is also 1.5 times stronger than the 2018 Silverado. While those features are phenomenal, we’re most impressed by the addition of new powertrain options available in the 2019 Chevy Silverado.

Which Engines Are Returning?

Chevrolet includes the 4.3-Liter V6, 5.3-Liter V8 with Active Fuel Management (AFM), the 6.2-Liter V8 and lastly, the 3.0-Liter turbocharged diesel inline-six. Added are the new 5.3-Liter V8 with Dynamic Fuel Management (DFM) and the aforementioned 2.7-Liter engine. The 2.7-Liter turbocharged engine will provide drivers with 310 horsepower and 348 lb-ft of torque.  All engines are paired with the choice of three available transmissions, ranging from six-, eight- and 10-speed automatic transmissions.

Not every trim can include each powertrain or transmission option of course. The new 2.7-Liter turbocharged engine and 5.3-Liter V8 with DFM is available only with the 10-speed automatic. Dynamic Fuel Management debuts in this all-new Silverado and provides drivers with engine technology that cuts off fuel consumption to certain cylinders when a driver is coasting and not actively accelerating forward. The expected MPG for the powertrain options with DFM is 17 city and 23 highway mpg.

Final Thoughts on the All-New Silverado

There’s something for everyone in the new generation Silverado. After shaving off 450 pounds from the previous model by losing 88 pounds off the frame and 88 pounds from the body and the added lighter material throughout, the lighter Silverado handles as well as ever. Redefining this vehicle is the aerodynamic efficiency, improving 7 percent overall with a steeper windshield and roof spoiler. Overall, the improvements Chevrolet has placed into this all-new 2019 Silverado have made this pickup impressive as any new light-duty truck on the market. The competition has to look out for this one, especially since the starting price will be just $29,795 MSRP (Plus destination).
