2024 Chevy Blazer EV Debuts

2024 Chevy Blazer EV | Collierville, TN

Chevy has revealed the upcoming 2024 Chevy Blazer EV, the first electric version of the iconic Blazer SUV. Set to go on sale in the summer of 2023, the new Blazer EV will deliver an incredible combination of electric range and power.

The Blazer EV will have an estimated driving range of 320 miles on a single charge with the RS trim, or as low as 247 miles on the base 1LT trim. The Blazer EV will offer a sport-driven SS trim, which can drive up to 290 miles on a full charge.

The Blazer EV SS is the first electric sport SUV from Chevy, and it’s designed to put out serious power. The SS can produce up to 557 horsepower and 648 lb-ft of torque, letting you go from 0 to 60 mph in under 4 seconds.

The other trim levels of the Blazer EV put out plenty of power too, and they’re loaded with smart tech and features. A 17.7-inch infotainment screen gives you a clear view of your navigation and streaming apps, and the 11-inch driver information center gives you a clear view of important vehicle info.

The Blazer EV delivers serious convenience with hands-free start, which senses the presence of the key fob and starts the car as soon as you tap the brake. A presence-based liftgate is also available, as well as available Super Cruise, Chevy’s hands-free driving tech.

Chevy Safety Assist Features

Chevy Safety Features | Collierville, TN

Chevy offers all the latest safety technology you’re looking for in a new vehicle, whether you prefer a compact hatchback or a big pickup truck. Here are some features you can get on your new Chevy vehicle.

Adaptive Cruise Control

If you have a long commute on the highway, Adaptive Cruise Control is practically a necessity. This piece of technology uses a variety of sensors and highway maps to steer the wheel for you and control the speed, letting you sit back and relax even in stop-and-go traffic.

HD Surround Vision and Rear Camera Mirror

Chevy has some of the best camera technology in the auto industry. HD Surround Vision uses images from cameras around your car to create a composite overhead view, making it easier to park. And the Rear Camera Mirror provides a sharper, broader view of the area behind you than a standard rearview mirror.

Lane Change Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert

These two pieces of technology both help you make safer decisions when your visibility is compromised. Rear Cross Traffic Alert lets you know when it’s unsafe to back out of a parking spot. And Lane Change Alert, which is paired with Side Blind Zone Alert, monitors your blind spot so you know when it’s safe to change lanes.

Rear Park Assist

Rear Park Assist is perfect for anyone who spends time in the city. Fitting into tight parking spaces is a breeze with Rear Park Assist, which alerts you to objects behind you when in Reverse, so you can avoid collisions while trying to park.

Intellibeam Auto High Beam Assist

Intellibeam makes night driving safer and easier than ever. When it senses another vehicle around you, it will automatically turn your high beams off, then turn them on again when the road is clear.

Differences Between the GMC Acadia and Chevrolet Traverse

2022 Chevrolet Traverse | Collierville, TN

At first glance, the 2022 GMC Acadia and Chevrolet Traverse might appear to be twins. However, these two models have some key differences to consider if you need some help deciding which one to bring home. That’s especially true when it comes to space and strength. 

Though the 2022 GMC Acadia can seat up to seven people, it’s not as roomy as the 2022 Chevy Traverse. It offers 41.7 cubic feet of space behind the second row and 79 cubic feet when you collapse all of the rear seats. The larger Traverse can accommodate up to eight riders. There’s 57.8 cubic feet behind the second row. When you need more space for pets or possessions than people, collapse both back rows to access 98.2 cubic feet.

Both models are both reasonably efficient in terms of mileage — but the Traverse is the better choice when it comes to towing. But the Acadia can tow only 4,000 pounds max, while the Traverse can tow 5,000 pounds.

Lastly, the Acadia and Traverse contrast when it comes to trim options. The Acadia has more specialized trim levels, which include the luxury-oriented Denali and the off-road-focused AT4. But the Traverse has a higher quantity of trims — 6 to be exact. So, if you want a wide array of trims to choose from, go with the Chevy model.

Test-drive the 2022 Acadia and Traverse for yourself when you and your family stop by Sunrise Chevrolet Buick GMC at Collierville. Our friendly sales reps will be happy to help you pick just the right SUV to fit your family’s budget, preferences, and needs.

There’s ample room for five adults with good headroom and legroom for rear passengers,” according to Nicole Wakelin, writer for KBB.com.

2022 Chevrolet Equinox

The 2022 Equinox may be a small SUV but it offers ample cargo space. With the rear seats down, it reveals 63.9 cubic feet of space. It also offers a customizable cabin space with a folding 60/40 split-bench seats in the second row, hidden storage in the rear cargo floor, and an available hands-free power liftgate with logo projection for effortless access to your items.

4 Ways To Make Some Cash With Your Silverado

2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 | Collierville, TN

You love your Chevrolet Silverado. Fall in love with your truck even more by turning it into a money-making machine. Here are four ways you can use your spare time to make some cash with your Silverado.

  1. Hauling junk. Everyone has some junk in their house that they want to get rid of. Offer your truck to haul away their junk for them. You could charge up to $60 an hour for this service.
  2. Become a mover. While a standard pickup truck might not work for long-haul moves, offering up your truck for local moves could help you rake in some extra cash. Depending on your preference, you can choose to charge per project or per hour.
  3. Tow vehicles. If you have a strong Silverado with good towing capabilities, this could be a good option for you. Make sure your vehicle has the necessary equipment and you have an adequate trailer for vehicle towing. You could offer your Silverado as a more affordable tow truck alternative.
  4. Plow snow. While snow isn’t too common in Tennessee, the 2022 winter has already shown us what is possible. If your truck has the right equipment, consider investing in a snow plow. You could charge at least $75 per hour to clear driveways and parking lots.

Here at Sunrise Chevrolet Buick GMC, we want to make sure that you get the most out of your Silverado. Give us a call if you have any questions about your truck’s capacities or need help modifying your truck for your new side gig.

Top Chevy Technologies We’re Thankful For

2022 Chevrolet Equinox | Collierville, TN

With Thanksgiving on the horizon, we thought it would be a good time to look back at the top Chevy technologies we’re thankful for, especially the ones that ensure the whole family gets to Thanksgiving safe and sound. Let’s dig in!

Teen Driver

Parents know the stress that comes with a teen first getting behind the wheel. Studies show 93% of teens listen to loud, distracting music while driving and only 61% wear a seat belt when riding with someone else. Teen Driver gives parents the tools they need to monitor new drivers and educate them about important safe driving behaviors.

Marketplace

Marketplace makes everything convenient. When you want to order carryout, find and reserve a table, book a parking spot, or even remotely pay for gas, Marketplace lets you do it. It’s a great way to find what you need in unfamiliar places or save time in areas you already know.

Smart assistants

Chevrolet brings the power of Amazon® and Google® smart assistants to your car. Using just your voice, you can lock the doors or play music, among many other things. You can even remotely control your home assistant, just in case you forgot to turn off the lights.

Visit Sunrise Chevrolet Buick at Collierville, Tennessee, to learn more about Chevrolet technologies we’re grateful to have every time we get behind the wheel.

Should I Buy a 2022 Buick Encore or Chevrolet Trax?

2022 Buick Encore | Collierville, TN

If you need a small SUV for driving your family around Collierville, Tennessee, or commuting to work, the 2022 Buick Encore and 2022 Chevrolet Trax are both great options. To decide which of the two is better for you, check out their key differences.

Trim levels

The Buick Encore has a single trim option: Preferred. The Chevy Trax, meanwhile, gives you the choice between the LS and LT trim levels. The Encore Preferred is more akin to the Trax LT.

Interior amenities

The cabins of the SUVs are largely the same, both having plenty of space for everyone to get comfortable. However, the Trax is the only one to offer a leatherette seat trim, which adds elegance to the interior.

The Encore alone comes standard with QuietTuning™ technologies to make for a more peaceful ride. In addition, it features a 4.2-inch Driver Information Center that’s a bit easier to view than the 3.5-inch display in the Trax.

Safety tech

Both models come standard with the Rear Vision Camera and offer available Rear Cross Traffic Alert to make parking a breeze. Only the Encore, though, has Forward Collision Alert, Front and Rear Park Assist, and Lane Departure Warning as available options for more peace of mind.

Learn more about these SUVs by scheduling test drives in them at Sunrise Chevrolet Buick GMC at Collierville.

2022 Chevy Silverado Will Get Off-Road ZR2 Package

2021 Chevy Silverado | Collierville, TN

If you love to take your pickup truck off the beaten path, then you’ll love this: Chevrolet has announced the refreshed 2022 Silverado will get the ZR2 treatment, which will launch this fall.

The off-road ZR2 package is currently offered on the Colorado, turning the playful midsize truck into a rugged, all-terrain machine. Chevy hasn’t said what the ZR2 package will add to the Silverado 1500, but we can use the Colorado’s own features to extrapolate.

On the Colorado, the ZR2 package adds a 2-inch lift, front and rear locking differentials, and a 3.5-inch wider track. Prototypes and leaked details for the Silverado ZR2 suggest the new truck will feature Multimatic DSSV dampers, 35-inch all-terrain tires with larger rubber than currently used by the Trail Boss model, and probably some extra convenience tech as well.

For example, the Colorado ZR2 has a standard rear vision camera, hill-start assistance, and trailer sway control. It wouldn’t be surprising to see the Silverado ZR2 go down the same path.

Automakers have been raising their off-roading game in recent years and the Silverado ZR2 is just the latest addition to the growing roster of hardcore pickup trucks. When it launches, you’ll be able to get your hands on it at Sunrise Chevrolet Buick at Collierville, Tennessee!

Reasons to Anticipate the Electric Chevrolet Silverado

After years of conspiracies and dreams, Chevrolet finally announced that they will be producing an all-electric version of the Silverado. Keep reading to find out more about the new Chevrolet Silverado and why the experts at Sunrise Chevrolet at Collierville, Tennessee, think you should be excited.

Long Overdue: The new Chevrolet Silverado has been in the works for some time now, and many truck lovers were antsy to see what the first true all-electric pickup would look like. This announcement comes following GM’s announcement that it plans to offer 30 EVs by 2025 and intends to be carbon-neutral by 2040.

American by Birth: General Motors is deeply ingrained in American culture, which is why its red-blooded workhorse Silverado was bound to have a star-spangled pedigree. The electric Chevrolet Silverado will be produced in Detroit, Michigan at the innovative Factory ZERO that is expected to receive a $2.2 billion makeover.

Go for Miles: The all-new Silverado is expected to have a range over 400 miles, which is perfect for commuters and road-trippers alike. GM continues to invest in fast-charging stations across the country, and your Silverado will be able to “fill up” using the ever-expanding EVgo network.

Tips for Driving Safely in Collierville During Spring’s Rains

2021 Chevy Colorado | Collierville, TN

The joys of spring only bloom with a lot of rain. And, driving in the rain poses challenges that can unnerve even the most confident of drivers. The following safety tips will help you explore Collierville in your Chevy truck when the rain comes down.

Change plans if possible

Heavy rains or flooding are two reasons to stay at home or at least wait out the storm, if possible.

Reduce your speed

Speed and rain are a dangerous combination. Be especially cognizant of reducing your speed when rain first starts to fall. The mixture of new rain with oil on the roads creates slick conditions.

Keep your distance

Just as reducing speed is a good idea when driving in the rain, keeping more distance between you and the vehicle in front of you is a safer way to travel in the rain. You will want as much time and space as possible if you need to brake in a hurry.

Illuminate your path

You would not drive in the rain without putting on your windshield wipers. And you shouldn’t drive in the rain without your headlights on, too. You want to see your path as clearly as possible and you want to be as visible as possible to other drivers, too.

If you need new wiper blades or other services this spring, schedule a maintenance appointment at Sunrise Chevrolet Buick GMC at Collierville.
