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.

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.
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.
