How to Deal with Traffic in New York

Blue ChevroletTraffic can ruin everything from a road trip to a work commute, but don’t let it ruin you! Here are some tips on how to deal with the traffic in New York without losing your mind, from us at LaSorsa Chevrolet Buick.

Practice Breathing

This may seem obvious, but you need to breathe! If the cars in front of you aren’t going anywhere, take a deep breath in and out. Practicing deep breathing can help reduce your anxiety and slow your heart rate down.

Get Comfy

If you’re going to be in traffic for a while, then you’ll want to get comfortable. Make sure that you are cool or warm enough, whether that means blasting the A/C or opening the windows. If you run into traffic often, you can get a seat cushion or seat cover to help keep you comfy.

Blast Your Favorite Tunes

You know those songs that you can’t resist singing along to? Make a playlist of your favorite songs and call it “Traffic Tunes.” That way when you’re stuck in traffic, you can sing along to your favorite music and pretend you’re on “The Voice.” It’s a great way to distract you from the stress of traffic.

Take a deep breath, crank the tunes in your Buick, and kiss that traffic stress goodbye!

2018 Chevrolet Traverse Sneak Peek

Large vehicles are selling like hotcakes, so to speak, and General Motors is aiming to capitalize on the current trend. Chevrolet crossovers and SUVs already dominate the competition with relative ease, but there’s always room for improvement. That’s why the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse will get a little bigger and boast plenty of technology.

The upcoming Chevrolet Traverse will grow 2 inches in the wheelbase, effectively offering more headroom and legroom for rear passengers. While the cargo area shrinks to 23 cubic feet, that’s still more than enough to top competitors like the Ford Explorer, which offers just 21 cubic feet of space.

As for styling, the 2018 Traverse boasts a more modern look with a truck-line profile. A hexagonal grille and narrow headlights fill out most of the front end while the rear end is similar to the GMC Acadia.

According to Chevrolet, the Traverse drops just over 350 pounds compared to the previous model. That makes the three-row crossover more comparable to competitors like the Honda Pilot.

Performance still comes standard with a standard 3.6-liter V6 engine under the hood. Total power output comes to an impressive 305 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. A smaller 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine is available in the new RS trim. Both engines come mated to a new nine-speed automatic transmission and start/stop technology.

We here at LaSorsa Chevrolet Buick can’t wait for the arrival of the all-new Chevrolet Traverse!
