Whether you’re taking your family on a road trip, finally getting around to remodeling the kitchen like you always wanted or just heading out for a night on the town, the Silverado ticks more boxes than you might think. With modern technology to match your modern lifestyle, space to kick back and relax on those long trips (not to mention towing capacity to boot) and safety features to put your mind at ease, the choice is simpler than you’d guess.
The Future is Calling
You’ve heard of a smartphone, but what about a smart truck? The 2017 Chevy Silverado has plenty of great tech. features that not only make your trips more comfortable and convenient, but some that also pair well with your phone.
Chevrolet Mylink is what powers all of the entertainment in the Silverado and, through a Bluetooth or USB connection, can pair directly to your smartphone, so your music and more is readily available. With Chevrolet Mylink comes two great features to complement it: wireless charging and available 4G LTE Wi-Fi. While your phone is being used to stream your favorite music, an available wireless charging station for compatible phones will keep your battery in tip-top shape, and 4G LTE Wi-Fi will provide great entertainment for the kids.
Kick Back and Relax
Silverado’s cabin is not only incredibly spacious, but quiet, too. Whether you’re taking the kids to practice, taking a family trip to the great outdoors (more on that later), or making trips to the store for a home improvement project, the Silverado’s cabin has room to boot. And for those late night drives home from up north, the cabin stays whisper silent so all of your passengers can rest easy.
Take a Trip on the Wild Side
Did we mention taking the Silverado on your next camping trip? With the bed, cabin and towing capacity of the Silverado, using it for your next camping trip is a no-brainer. Whether you’re spending a weekend with friends or a week with family in the great outdoors, the Silverado will get you there and back with ease. 12,500 lbs. of towing capability can haul just about anything you plan on bringing from canoes to full-sized trailers, while cabin space will make the hours in the truck feel hours on the couch.
Peace of Mind
With all of these great features, it’s easy to lose sight of the most important features of all: safety. The 2017 Chevy Silverado is one heck of a smart truck and all that genius is what will keep you safe. Lane keep assist, side blind zone alert and low speed forward automatic braking will help you avoid collisions on the road, but should a collision happen, six standard airbags and a high-strength steel safety cage will be there to help protect you from harm.
Seeing how the Silverado can make your next family vacation a walk in the park (or forest, or canyon, or…), how will you plan your next family trip?
