With the COVID-19 pandemic creating challenges for families around Michigan, creativity has been crucial to staying positive and engaged. Chevrolet paired up with The Harris Poll to survey 1,000 Americans, finding that 89 percent are turning to open road to ward off the doldrums of quarantine. This points to planning a road trip in your Chevrolet SUV this fall as a great way to rediscover your passion.
According to the survey, one in 10 Americans have used the past six months as an excuse to go camping for the first time. Forty-one percent say they’ve gotten into their vehicles and gone somewhere they’ve never been before. Activities like hiking, fishing, and visiting a national park were particularly popular, with 20 percent saying they’ve visited their first national park this year.
If a road trip sounds right up your alley this fall, there’s a Chevrolet SUV that’s fit for adventure. The all-new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban have both recently arrived at College Chevrolet Buick in Albion, Michigan, and both are ideal candidates for family-friendly journeys.
The Harris Poll noted that more than half of the respondents wish they had more cargo room for their road trip. The all-new Tahoe and Suburban are both best-in-class on this front with a respective 122.9 cubic feet and 144.7 cubic feet of storage volume. The 2021 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban also offer desired amenities like a Rear-Seat Media System and standard driver-assist safety technology.
Fall is a beautiful time of year around Michigan, so don’t let it slip through your fingers. Taking a family road trip in your Chevrolet SUV, whether it’s the all-new 2021 Tahoe or Suburban or a high-quality Chevrolet Certified Pre-Owned, is just the trick to helping you appreciate the good things around you. College Chevrolet Buick is here to help — call or email to schedule your test drive or your next service visit on your current vehicle.
Chevy is the first automaker in the industry to develop this kind of technology, similar to the technology used in a Boeing 787. In the jet, in-flight messages can be sent to ground crews that alert them of parts that need inspection before the plane hits the ground.
OnStar Proactive alerts work similarly, by continuously monitoring the health of the starter motor, fuel pump, and 12-volt battery. If anything isn’t functioning as it should, you’ll get an alert from OnStar instructing you to take your car in for service.
Currently, this predictive technology is available to OnStar subscribers who own a 2016 Chevy Silverado, Tahoe, Suburban, Corvette, and Equinox.
“With Proactive Alerts, we now can offer customers even greater peace-of-mind of taking the guesswork out of when to service their vehicle,” said Steve Hollan, chief technologist for Vehicle Health Management at General Motors.
With these updates, you’ll get alerts on your vehicle’s health every time your car is started, and while you’re driving.
Now behind the wheel, you’ll be able to fix your car before you even notice something’s wrong!

Both the Tahoe and Suburban have seen 100+% increases in year over year retail sales and have given Chevrolet control of the full-size SUV market.
