What kind of car (or truck) does 2018 Super Bowl 52 MVP win?
Well, it seems they probably won’t win any vehicle. Unbeknownst to many, the promotion hasn’t happened for a few years now, with Von Miller being the first to be snubbed of a new Chevy. And that clearly wasn’t a known fact, as there was a lot of buzz around Tom Brady giving James White his Super Bowl MVP ride for last year’s performance, ala Malcolm Butler. But alas, there was no truck to give. (Although later Conan O’Brien gave white a Ford F-150).
But for a moment, let’s pretend there is an automobile giveaway again this year. Beyond the antics of giving trucks to teammates and the unforgettable Chevy guy, it was a cool moment for auto fans, as it was typically a model that had our intrigue already, which made the post-game ceremonies somewhat bearable.
Given recent history, and the focus on the brand right now, you’d have to believe that Chevy, given the chance, would give away a brand new Chevy Silverado, right? The centennial edition of the truck is what the 2018 World Series MVP received, so it only seems fair.
But maybe that is jumping to conclusions too quickly. After all, Chevrolet just unveiled an all-new 2019 Chevy Silverado at the North American International Auto Show. And it needs to provide a drive-ready model on the spot for the ceremony after the game. So would the brand be handing out the 2018 model for the whole world to see?
And who would win the Super Bowl MVP car or truck? The money would have to be on Brady again for Super Bowl 52. Quarterbacks have a huge advantage in this category, and Brady just won NFL MVP over worthy competition. But, it’s happened before – see Von Miller above.
Also, let’s not assume that the Patriots are going to win… I wonder what kind of car Nick Foles drives?
Who knows, maybe Hyundai will make good on Kanye’s prediction and shock us all with a giveaway. But, he didn’t name his daughter Alexis, so why should they? I regress…
