With spring in the air and Opening Day upon us, a Chevrolet tradition is about to commence, signifying the beginning of the 2016 baseball season.
A Hyper Blue Metallic Camaro SS and an Inferno Orange Metallic Colorado – the 2016 Motor Trend Car and Truck of the Year – settled into their home for the year high atop the Chevrolet Fountain behind centerfield in Comerica Park today. Each vehicle was lifted into place by crane – a three-hour process.
“Chevrolet continues to enjoy a long-standing relationship with the Detroit Tigers,” said Paul Edwards, vice president, Chevrolet Marketing. “By putting Chevrolet power and performance on display in center field, we hope to inspire our fans and our home team with a winning season.”
Chevrolet has sponsored the fountain, which features an array of water displays and the sound of a tiger growling with each Detroit home run, for the last seven seasons. The brand chooses select vehicles from its lineup to display each year.
“Last year, we were able to showcase our vehicles to nearly 3 million Tigers’ fans at Comerica Park and even more watching from home,” Edwards said. “We hope the Camaro SS and Colorado help stir the same emotions our home team does when they hit one out of the park.”
