    Chevrolet Suburban Brings Hollywood Star Home To Texas


    Leaders from the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, the General Motors Arlington Assembly Plant and the city of Arlington, Texas, celebrate as the Award of Excellence star earned by the Chevrolet Suburban is permanently placed into a city sidewalk on June 21, 2021. It is the first such award to reside permanently in Texas, a location chosen because it is where the Suburban is assembled. (Photo by Mike Stone for Chevrolet)

    I’m Laura Reynolds with CaProUSA. Chevrolet Suburban Communications Manager Shad Balch talks about how Hollywood honored the Suburban and its appearances in over 17 hundred films.  Balch: “We were in Texas to place the star that the Chevrolet Suburban won from Hollywood back in 2019, the star from the Walk of Fame, we placed it permanently in the ground outside our assembly plant in Arlington, Texas. All the world’s Tahoes and Suburbans are built in Arlington, Texas. So it just seemed fitting that we take this recognition, this amazing star and place it in the ground in Arlington, Texas. We had a red carpet. We had the backdrop so that all of us, the lineworkers at the plant could feel like a Hollywood celebrity and pose with the vehicle and the Mayor of Arlington was there and he graciously, he awarded us a key to the city and he proclaimed Monday June 21st as Suburban Day.” With today’s auto news, I'm Laura Reynolds.
