2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 | Eustis, FL

Considering its predecessors, it should come as no surprise that the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is one of the most powerful, capable, and innovative pickups on the market. For the 2021 model year, this truck has two significant improvements to its tailgate and its advanced trailering technology.

The 2021 Silverado 1500 continues to come with the functional Durabed, which has 12 standard tie-downs and a best-in-class 89.1 cubic feet of standard cargo bed volume. However, this truck is now adding the all-new Multi-Flex Tailgate as an available option. This tailgate has six distinct functions for easier access to the bed and more convenient loading.

Chevrolet is also enhancing the truck’s legendary capability with even more advanced trailering technologies. For 2021, the truck now offers a Trailer Length Indicator, an upgraded Cargo Bed View, new guidelines and a Trailer-Angle Indicator feature for the Rear Trailer View, and a brand-new Jack-Knife Alert. With these latest updates, maneuvering around bustling cities and taking a trailer down to the ocean is less difficult and, accordingly, less stressful.

We at Vann Gannaway Chevrolet can’t wait for the much-anticipated 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 to makes its way to our lot. Give us a call to learn when the truck will be available in Eustis, Florida, and how you can make it your next vehicle.

Tips for Washing Your Chevrolet

Car Wash | Eustis, FL

Washing your Chevrolet can be a rewarding experience and a great way to keep your ride looking clean and shiny. But operating your own personal car wash comes with a unique set of challenges and risks. Follow these helpful tips for keeping your Chevrolet looking like new.

Pick the best products

It’s important to know what soaps and chemicals are safe to use on your vehicle. Common household soaps, cleaners and detergents will likely damage your vehicle’s finish. To avoid this, always use automotive solutions specifically made for washing vehicles.

Use high-quality materials

Be sure you’re using optimal materials to scrub your vehicle’s surface. Lamb’s-wool mitts and natural sponges work best. Cleaning with abrasive towels and similar materials might also leave scratches on your vehicle.

Employ the right technique

Maintain the right technique while cleaning. Move your cleaning material of choice lengthwise down your vehicle, and avoid scrubbing in circles, which can leave small but damaging scratches behind. Make sure your Chevrolet is already soaked with water before you begin washing it since this will give the sponge or cloth a better surface to move across. Plus, always use a different sponge on your tires to avoid accidentally transferring their dirt and grime onto your car’s body.

With these tips at your disposal, you’ll have your Chevrolet looking nice and clean in no time. If you notice any damage while washing your vehicle, call Vann Gannaway Chevrolet in Eustis, Florida, to make a service appointment.

Your Chevrolet truck bed is great for towing and hauling, but there’s so much more it can do, especially when you’re looking for easy, low-cost summer fun in Eustis, Florida. Transform your truck bed with your family to enjoy the outdoors without straying far from home.

Truck bed pool

You don’t need to have a pool in your backyard to cool off on hot summer days. Transforming your truck bed into a pool is a classic way to get that summer experience without going to a public pool or the beach. Just get a big tarp to cover the bottom and sides of the bed and grab your hose.

Truck bed movie theater

There aren’t many drive-ins around anymore, but even if you’re nowhere near one, you can get the same experience by getting cozy in your truck bed. Watch a movie on your laptop, or even use a projector to watch a movie on the side of your house.

Truck bed picnic

Enjoy a nice picnic with your significant other or your kids by laying out a picnic blanket in your truck bed. You can enjoy eating your favorite food under the warm sun, without having to deal with itchy grass or lots of bugs crawling nearby.
