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.

Chevrolet Bolt EV App Expands Energy Assist Functions

2020 Chevrolet Bolt | Eustis, FL

If you own a Chevrolet Bolt EV, you’re likely familiar with the myChevrolet mobile app’s Energy Assist feature. Chevrolet recently tweaked this great feature to increase its usefulness.

Now, when you use Energy Assist, the feature will pull on data from your Bolt EV as well as specific charging networks. This means that you can more quickly locate a charging station with an available slot. It’s also easier to pay for the charge since you can make a payment directly from the myChevrolet app. Lastly, you can rate and review stations to help out other app users. 

Energy Assist’s enhancements are meant to give Chevrolet Bolt EV owners a more holistic charging experience, both for daily commutes and occasional road trips. It’s also the brand’s way of rewarding Chevrolet owners for owning eco-friendly models, as the company moves closer to its zero-emissions vision for the future.

The Energy Assist feature is available to U.S. Bolt EV drivers via the myChevrolet mobile app — and you can use it for the first five years of ownership at no additional cost. Call us at Vann Gannaway Chevrolet for more information about the Energy Assist feature.

Fall Vehicle Maintenance Tips

Engine

Before winter arrives, it’s important to prepare your vehicle for the cold weather. Follow these fall vehicle maintenance tips to help take proper care of your vehicle.

Check your battery

The last thing you want is a dead battery on a snowy day. That’s why you should check the connections to make sure they are clear of dirt. If you see some corrosion, disconnect the connections and use a wire brush to clean them.

Replace your wipers

Usually, you should replace your windshield wipers every six to 12 months. They also need to be replaced if they leave behind streaks of water. You can typically clean the wiper blades with glass cleaner and a paper towel to prolong their life for a few extra weeks if necessary.

Inspect your tires

Stick a penny in the tread groove on your tire. When placing the penny headfirst, if you can still view the top of Lincoln’s head, then you need to invest in new tires. You may also want to consider purchasing winter tires for more traction on the snow.

If you discover that you need replacements, repairs or general maintenance for your vehicle, stop by our service department at Vann Gannaway Chevrolet, and we’ll be happy to get your vehicle ready for winter.

Newly-Trademarked Bolt EUV Nameplate Hints at New Chevrolet Electric SUV

2019 Bolt EV

Chevrolet has established itself as a leader in the SUV and electric vehicle segments. Popular SUVs and crossovers like the Equinox and the Traverse provide modern families with the comfort, versatility, and performance that they crave. Exceptionally-efficient EVs like the Volt and the Bolt consistently push the boundaries of eco-friendly driving.

Word on the street has it that Chevrolet intends to offer a best-of-both-worlds offering in the form of the Bolt EUV, which the automaker recently registered as a trademark. While many details remain a mystery, the newly-coined moniker suggests that the automaker might expand the EV nameplate to Electric Utility Vehicle. This hints that it is developing a brand-new electric crossover vehicle.

If this speculation proves true, it would be the first-ever electric SUV from Chevrolet and would expand the brand’s EV lineup. It would also confirm the automaker’s intention to prioritize new powertrain technologies, like those found in the 2019 Bolt EV, in the days ahead.

As more consumers demand efficiency and clean energy when it comes to their next vehicle, it’s likely that the new Chevy EUV will attract a noteworthy fan base. Contact us at Vann Gannaway Chevy for more news about the anticipated EUV model. Or, stop by to test drive one of the brand’s current offerings, like the 2019 Traverse or Equinox.

Self-Driving Chevrolet Bolt Gets a Spot in the Henry Ford Museum

General Motors recently donated a pre-production model of the self-driving Chevy Bolt, an all-electric hatchback that boasts one of the highest electric driving ranges in the auto industry, to the Henry Ford Museum’s “Driving America” exhibit.

This exhibit shows the growth of innovation in the auto industry over the last 150 years, from the oldest surviving American-made car, the 1865 Ford Roper, to the earliest racing cars of the 1960s. It also has more modern additions such as the first hybrids dating from the early 2000s. As one of the first fully electric cars to incorporate self-driving tech, the Chevy Bolt definitely enhances the vehicle’s “green car” models on display.

GM and Ford may be fierce rivals, but as America’s two biggest native automakers, in many ways they’re partners. GM donated $5 million to the Henry Ford Museum back in 2017, recognizing the value of a museum in preserving American auto history in the Motor City.

Ford plans to display the self-driving Chevrolet Bolt at the very front of the “Driving America” exhibit, according to museum curator Matt Anderson. The Bolt will be the first vehicle the Henry Ford Museum displays that uses self-driving technology, making its inclusion even more special.

Stop by Vann Gannaway Chevy to test-drive the Chevy Bolt for yourself. Or take one of our other shiny new 2019 models for a whirl.
