How To Clean Your Used Chevy in Eustis, FL

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 you can.

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.

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.

2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Gets More Efficient

Truck manufacturers face the incredible challenge of making trucks more capable while reducing their fuel consumption. General Motors may have done just that with an all-new engine that will come standard in some Chevrolet Silverado models. The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will see a new turbocharged four-cylinder engine that uses every sip of fuel wisely.

The 2.7-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine will replace the V6 engine in some 2019 Silverado 1500 models. The new engine will benefit from active cylinder management technology. Thanks to the fuel-saving technology, the Silverado 1500 will cut two of the four cylinders when full power isn’t necessary.

Drivers worried the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 won’t live up to the competition should put their fears aside. The turbocharged engine will produce more torque than the base V6 engines. Total performance output comes to 310 hp and 348 lb-ft of torque.

Chevrolet has yet to release any official fuel economy figures, but the turbocharged four-cylinder engine with active cylinder management is sure to increase the full-size truck’s efficiency. The automaker also assured truck enthusiasts that the Silverado’s turbocharged engine will offer comparable capability to competitors with V6 engines.

The 2.7-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine won’t be the only fuel-efficient powertrain available in the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. A new turbo diesel six-cylinder engine is expected to join the range in the near future.
