Why Buy an SUV for Your Next Family Hauler?

2021 Chevrolet Equinox - Eustis, FL

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.

Better technology

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.

Greater safety

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.

2021 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD Has Impressive Towing Capabilities

2020 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD | Eustis, FL

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.

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.

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.

Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Boasts Straightforward Maintenance Routine

2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 | Eustis, FL

If you are behind the wheel of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, you know it is a truck you can depend on to power your day, whether at work or on a getaway. You also know that keeping your Silverado running at its best requires regular maintenance and occasional repairs.

Nevertheless, according to the editors at U.S. News & World Report, maintaining your trusted Silverado is an easier feat than with other trucks on the market. That’s why the formidable and durable truck was just included on the list of 10 Easy Cars to Maintain and Repair.

The Silverado has had fewer redesigns than other vehicles over the years. As such, you can have easy access to plenty of parts when your truck is due for a replacement. Service technicians, especially those at Chevrolet dealerships, also have lots of experience servicing Silverado models since they’re so popular.

Maintenance checks and repairs are convenient to do, thanks to the roomy engine compartments in the Chevrolet Silverado. Older Silverado models also boast straightforward and easy to understand components, making maintenance a breeze.  

Of course, whether your Chevrolet vehicle has simple or complex maintenance needs, you can always count on the trained experts at Vann Gannaway Chevrolet in Eustis, Florida, to service your vehicle.

Transform Your Chevrolet Truck Bed for Summer Fun

2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD | Eustis, FL

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.

Whether you’re in the market for a new truck or some accessories to help transform your truck bed, give us a call at Vann Gannaway Chevrolet in Eustis, Florida, and we’ll be happy to assist you.
