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.

Chevrolet Traverse Makes List of Quietest Cars

U.S. News & World Report compiled a list of The 17 Quietest Cars for 2019. The cars on this list work to keep outside noises from reaching the cabin and help you relax on rides. The 2020 Chevrolet Traverse was one of the vehicles on this list, thanks to its sound-absorbing features.

The 2020 Traverse comes standard with Active Noise Cancellation, which both absorbs and blocks outside noises. It can also eliminate and dampen vibrations as you drive.

Not only is the cabin of the Traverse quiet, but it is also comfortable to sit it. The three-row SUV can fit up to eight passengers and offers available leather-appointed seating, as well as available ventilated and heated front seats. The available Dual SkyScape® two-panel power sunroof also provides a great view of the sky and lets in ample sunlight to make the interior feel more spacious.

The Traverse also helps keep you entertained with the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System, which comes standard with a 7-inch touch screen. You can listen to your playlists and answer phone calls, thanks to Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® integration.
