Buying certified pre-owned involves buying a used car that has gone through a certification process to ensure it is in good condition. Many manufacturers have CPO programs that make buying used a lot more appealing. If buying used is financially attractive but you have concerns about a used car breaking down, check out the benefits of buying certified pre-owned.
Most CPO vehicles must meet a set of minimum requirements before
they can be considered for certification. Chevrolet requires vehicles to be no
older than six model years, have no more than 75,000 miles, and pass a vehicle
To become certified, CPO vehicles must go through a multi-point
inspection. Chevrolet’s 172-point inspection is one of the most comprehensive
in the business and involves reconditioning any component not up to the
manufacturer’s standard of quality.
If you buy a Chevrolet CPO vehicle, you can feel confident in your
purchase thanks to a six-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty and a 12-month/12,000-mile
Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty. And if you change your mind about the car,
you can exchange it for another CPO vehicle within three days or 150 miles.
There are many more perks to buying used as well as buying
certified pre-owned, especially from Chevrolet. Visit Vann Gannaway Chevrolet

It’s always exciting when you buy a car, whether it’s pre-owned or brand new. When you bring home your new-to-you Chevy in Eustis, Florida, it can be tempting to get behind the wheel right away. However, if you purchased a used Chevy, one of the first things you should do is clean it and then resolve to clean it consistently moving forward.
Wipe down the steering wheel
Remember that your Chevy’s previous owner and potentially others had
their hands on the steering wheel. Use disinfectant to wipe down the steering
wheel and get rid of any gunk that has built up.
Remove the headrest
Before driving your used Chevy home, remove your headrest or put a
towel over it so your head doesn’t touch the headrest before you get a chance
to clean it. Then, you should scrub and sanitize all the headrests as soon as
Wash the upholstery and mats
Thoroughly vacuum and wash the car’s upholstery, including all the
creases and crevices in between the seats. In addition, remove your floor mats
and scrub them with shampoo and water.
Replace the cabin air filter
Make sure you are breathing fresh air in your pre-owned Chevy by replacing
the cabin air filter with a brand new one and spraying the intake vent with a
disinfectant. This helps ensure your ventilation system is fully sanitized
without smoke or particulates lingering.

Unlike anything offered on competitor pickups, the
Multi-Flex Tailgate builds on the most functional truck bed of any heavy-duty
truck. The Multi-Flex Tailgate gives the new Silverado HD six distinct settings
to make work and play easier, including a conventional primary gate, a
full-width step, and an easy-access mode. This makes the Silverado HD even more
ideal for packing up for a camping trip.
With inner gate and primary gate load stop settings, the
Silverado HD is better equipped to support extra-long items as well as tiered
storage. The Multi-Flex Tailgate also offers an inner-gate work surface that’s
perfect for breaking out the laptop to send a few quick emails or just relaxing
with a cold drink.
Pair the Multi-Flex Tailgate with Durabed, the most
functional bed in its class, and the 2022 Silverado HD is ready for finishing
tough jobs and enjoying the great outdoors. You’ll be able to order this unique
tailgate option on all 2022 Silverado HD models, including the High Country.
Want to see what the Multi-Flex Tailgate can do? Visit Vann Gannaway Chevrolet in Eustis, Florida, this summer and take one for a test drive.
The Chevrolet lineup boasts incredible options for your life on the go. Because of the incredible versatility, though, it might be overwhelming deciding what Chevy model to choose. If you’re waffling between a Chevy SUV or Chevy truck, this guide should help you decide.
How many seats do you need? What about cargo space? If you
need plenty of passenger and cargo space, choose a Chevy SUV over a Chevy
truck. The 2021 Chevy Blazer seats five and provides a maximum cargo space of
64.2 cubic feet with rear seats down. For more room, move up to the Chevy Tahoe
or Suburban, both of which offer maximum seating for nine. Maximum cargo space
measures 144.7 cubic feet in the Suburban and 122.9 cubic feet in the Tahoe.
If you need a vehicle that can cater to your outdoor
adventures and work needs, then a Chevy truck like the Colorado, Silverado
1500, or Silverado HD models might serve you better than a Chevy SUV. When
properly equipped, for example, the Silverado 1500 can tow a maximum 13,300
pounds while still providing a well-equipped, tech-savvy cabin.
With an increase in capability, there’s typically a decrease
in fuel efficiency ratings. If you prioritize a fuel-efficient performance, you
should choose a Chevrolet SUV.

It’s not exactly a secret that the SUV segment is one of the most competitive in the automotive industry. There’s also no doubt that Chevrolet has some of the most beloved vehicles in said segment, including the 2021 Blazer and the 2021 Equinox. If you’re torn between the two, here are the differences you should know about before making a final decision.
Both the Blazer and the Equinox pack a pretty potent punch
under the hood — but in different ways. The 2021 Equinox comes standard with a
1.5-liter engine built to maximize efficiency. It succeeds with an
EPA-estimated 31 mpg on the highway.* Meanwhile, the 2021 Blazer shoots for
capability and excitement with three engine choices. The most substantial
engine, a beefy 3.6-liter V6, belts out 308 horsepower.
When you’re raising kids in Eustis, Florida, you need a
vehicle that’s as flexible as you are. If you’ve got a larger crew — or tend to
bring a lot of gear along for road trips — you may appreciate the extra space
offered by the 2021 Chevrolet Blazer. It’s longer, taller, and wider than the
Equinox, and provides more overall passenger room. That’s not to say that the
Equinox will make your family members feel cramped, though. It still offers
more than enough space to keep everyone comfortable.
It’s hard to deny that the Blazer is a bona fide
showstopper. Its available Black mesh grille, angular wheels, and sculpted body
are designed to turn heads. The 2021 Chevrolet Equinox, on the other hand, has
a more understated appearance and less-than-aggressive persona. However, both
models offer a Midnight Edition and Sport Edition that add bolder design
Your family deserves nothing but the best, and the 2021 Chevrolet Blazer and Equinox are hard to top. To learn more about their features, schedule a test drive or two at Vann Gannaway Chevrolet.

No one should be surprised to find the Camaro on this
list. With an available 3.6-liter V6 under the hood, the 2021 Camaro cranks out
335 horsepower and 284 lb-ft of torque, making it a highly competitive offering
in the sports car market.
For under $30,000, the 2021 Colorado is available with a
308-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 that gives the truck a towing capacity of up to
7,000 pounds. The Colorado WT model nicely balances weight and performance, and
its midsize dimensions make the truck ideal if you’re seeking to explore the
outdoors on a budget.
With the 4.3-liter EcoTec3 V6 rated at 285 horsepower and
305 lb-ft of torque, the 2021 Silverado 1500 is one of the most worthwhile
additions to the list. And, thanks to its affordable price, you can enjoy the

As a busy parent, you deserve a vehicle that can keep up with your hectic lifestyle. Choosing an SUV as your next family hauler means choosing the best, most versatile option for both you and your kids. Here’s a quick look at why other large vehicles like minivans simply can’t compete with a family-friendly SUV.
The technology in SUVs like the Chevy Equinox and Blazer has been made to compliment an on-the-go lifestyle. Aside from the usual smartphone compatibility, SUVs also come packed with features like navigation, rear-seat entertainment systems, and premium audio technology.
When considering a car for the family, nothing is more
important than safety. SUVs are some of the safest vehicles on the road,
offering higher ride height and better visibility to the driver than most
minivans. They also come full of standard and available driver-assist features
like Automatic Emergency Braking and Forward Collision Alert.
More towing power
If you’re planning a family camping trip and need a reliable way to tow a trailer or camper, opting for an SUV is the way to go. Even smaller SUVs have impressive towing power, and midsize SUVs like the Chevrolet Traverse can tow up to 5,000 pounds behind them. Minivans top out at around 3,600 pounds, making them poor choices for adventurous families.

Chevrolet is continuously pushing the boundaries of towing technology when it comes to its powerful pickups. As evidence of this, its new 2021 Silverado 3500 HD takes towing to the extreme with an incredible towing capacity of 36,000 pounds when properly equipped.
For the 2020 model year, the capable Silverado 3500 HD could
tow a maximum of 35,500 pounds. In order to top this already-impressive number,
Chevy got to work improving the pickup’s suspension and wheels. The end result
was an extra 500 pounds of towing capacity.
To achieve the full 36,000-pound capacity, the 2021
Silverado 3500 HD needs to have a Regular Cab configuration, a dual-rear-wheel
setup, and two-wheel drive. The truck must also be equipped with the Max Trailering
Package and the powerful 6.6-liter Duramax® Turbo-Diesel V8 engine with the
Allison® 10-speed automatic transmission.
Chevrolet also makes towing large loads a breeze with a
number of technologies on the heavy-duty truck. One such technology is the
available Advanced Trailering System, which has pre-departure checklists, trailer
maintenance reminders, and exterior trailer lighting diagnostics.
The new 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD is currently available at Vann Gannaway Chevrolet in Eustis, Florida. Give us a call to learn more about this truck and how to get behind the wheel of one.
