The Chevy Tahoe and Suburban have traditionally offered drivers plenty of power, space and capability. For 2021, the well-equipped SUVs will add off-roading giant to its list of attributes with a separate Z71 trim level. Formerly presented as a set of optional equipment, the Z71 off-road package morphs into a 2021 trim level with features such as massive skid plates, signature design elements, horizontal tow hooks in red, a higher clearance stance, Goodyear Wrangler TrailRunner AT™ all-terrain tires, 20-inch wheels and hill-descent control.

Thanks to mud, slush, and road salt, winter is a challenging
time of year to keep your car clean. But there are plenty of easy solutions
that will protect your car’s body and improve driving safety and visibility.
During the winter, it’s good to wash your car every couple
of weeks, but at least do it once a month to wash off any built-up grime on the
exterior, and focus on the undercarriage. It’s also a good idea to clean out
the interior of any debris that’s been tracked in. And remember to wash the
insides of the windows to boost visibility.
The best way to protect your car from the weather is to give
it a nice protective coat of wax after you wash it. You can have the wax done
professionally or do it yourself at home for cheap — either way, you’ll be
doing your car a huge favor.
If you don’t already have rubber floormats, invest in some. Rather than stepping on carpet with your wet, dirty shoes and letting the grime soak in, rubber floor mats protect the carpet, and they’re easy to remove and clean. It will help your vehicle smell fresher and eliminate the need for you to spend extra time scrubbing the carpet. For more winter maintenance tips, call us here at LaSorsa Chevy Buick. You can also schedule a seasonal service checkup for your vehicle.
Winter driving comes with its own range of
dangers, from icy roads to colder temperatures. That’s why an emergency winter
car kit is essential for anyone who wants to stay better prepared on the road.
There are a variety of important materials to include in your kit, from jumper
cables to a portable shovel. Here are some items you should add to your winter
One of the most important things to include
is a first aid kit to treat basic injuries and illnesses. Should your vehicle
breakdown or slide off the road, you’ll want to have bandages, antiseptic,
painkillers, and tweezers in case you need them.
A portable shovel and a solid ice scraper
are two other helpful tools to add. Shovels are great for digging snow out from
under your car; you can add a bag of cat litter or sand for better traction,
too. Even if you have an ice scraper, it’s a good idea to bring a spare as a
It’s also important to prepare for being
stranded, especially if you drive in rural areas. Blankets, boots, and gloves
will keep you warm and bottled water will keep you hydrated if you run out of
gas or can’t start your car. Additionally, many people carry an extra cell-phone
charger or a spare cell phone in their vehicle, to use in an emergency if your primary
phone’s battery dies. Even if your old phone doesn’t have a phone plan, most
will still let you dial 911.
Another way to help ensure safe travels this winter is to schedule a service appointment here at LaSorsa Chevy Buick.
The 2019 Chevrolet Equinox and Trax are both versatile and stylish two-row SUVs. However, even with all the great features they share, there are a few key differences between the models.
The Trax is equipped with the 1.4-liter engine, which
reaches 138 horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque. The Equinox has three engine
options, with the most powerful being the 2.0-liter engine. This engine
achieves 252 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.
The Trax gets an impressive EPA-estimated 31 mpg on the
highway.* However, the Equinox is even more efficient, with a highway
efficiency of 39 mpg.**
When you fold down the rear row, you can take advantage of
48.4 cubic feet of cargo volume in the Trax. This SUV also offers 92.8 cubic
feet of passenger space. Meanwhile, you can have up to 63.9 cubic feet of cargo
volume and 103.2 cubic feet of passenger space in the Equinox.
If you’re interested in towing with your SUV, the Equinox is
the right choice for you since it can tow up to 3,500 pounds when properly
equipped. The Trax isn’t meant for towing, due to its lower torque and smaller

Back in 2017, Chevrolet offered a blacked-out variant of the Chevrolet Equinox called Midnight Edition. Fans of this package missed it on subsequent models — and Chevy has responded by announcing the return of the Midnight Edition with the 2020 Chevy Equinox Midnight Edition.
So what does this special package include? Black styling cues dominate both inside and out, but the package also introduces several comfort and convenience amenities. Specifically, the black on the exterior is evident through the Mosaic Black Metallic exterior paint job, as well as the 19-inch Gloss Black aluminum alloy wheels, the unique mold-in-color black grille and mesh with black surround, front and rear black badging, and the dark finish fog lamp bezel surround. Inside, the dark theme continues with a Jet Black interior color with perforated leather-appointed seating.
Among other comfort and convenience features are an inside rearview auto-dimming mirror, memory settings for the driver’s seat, and outside heated, power-adjustable, and auto-dimming side-view mirrors.
According to GM Authority, the Midnight Edition will only be offered on 1LT and 2LT trim levels for the 2020 Equinox. Further, these models must already be equipped with the Confidence and Convenience package to be eligible.
Chevy has announced the 2020 Chevy Malibu acceleration specs
— and they are out of this world. The family-friendly mid-size sedan, when
powered by the 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder LTG engine, can
rocket from 0 to 60 mph in 6 seconds flat. Paired with a nine-speed automatic
gearbox, this engine is also powerful, throwing down 250 horsepower and 260
lb-ft of torque.
The standard engine powering the 2020 Malibu is not so bad either. It’s a 1.5-liter inline four-cylinder LFV engine, which Chevy has matched with a continuously variable transmission. This combo makes 160 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. This engine is also pretty fast, boasting a 0-to-60 launch time of just 9.3 seconds, according to Jonathan Lopez of GM Authority.
But let’s not forget the 2020 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid model.
While Chevy has not officially announced any specs regarding acceleration for
the Malibu Hybrid, Lopez believes that the hybrid model should accelerate ever
faster than the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine.
Also notable for the 2020 Malibu model is the new Buck to
Drive feature of the Teen Driver technology, which reminds teen drivers (or
drivers of all ages) to buckle up before driving. This system is also included
on the 2020 Traverse and Colorado.

Road trips are a fun way to have an adventure with your family. However, it can be easy to go overboard and come home from your trip with an empty checking account. Here are a few tips on how to save money on a road trip.
Calculate Gas Costs
Yes, fuel costs can change by the hour, but you can easily
calculate your projected fuel costs by using an average fuel price. Map out how
many miles you will be driving and estimate how much you will need to spend on
gas. You can use apps like GasBuddy to find the cheapest fuel stops along the
way. Once you know how much you need for gas, you know how much you have left
for food, housing, and activities.
Find Free Attractions
You might be surprised at how many free attractions there are
in the U.S. Do some research before you leave to find free or low-cost things
to do near your destination.
Pack Some Food
While part of the fun of going on a road trip is trying new
restaurants, food can quickly eat away at your budget. Do some grocery shopping
before you leave and pack some snacks and a meal or two for the road.
Schedule a pre-trip service appointment for your vehicle here at LaSorsa Chevrolet Buick, to ensure that your next getaway is as safe as it is fun.
