When the snow begins to fall, Metro Detroiters can’t help but daydream about long summer days on the lake. Sure, we embrace all four seasons in the Mitten State, but after a few weeks below freezing temps, our minds wander to afternoons of warm air, cool water, and family time under the sun.

While those moments may still be months away, right now is the time to make preparations for a perfect summer setup. When it comes to making the most of a Michigan summer, the first step is finding the vehicle that’s built for the adventure. With the Chevy Silverado, your summertime fantasies are just a drive away.

For many Metro Detroiters, the summer officially commences when the boat hits the water. But for some, the process of getting the boat to the lake is a daunting task. With Silverado’s revolutionary towing technology, you’re armed with a vehicle that not only hauls with ease but provides intelligent assistance every step of the way.

With up to fifteen available camera views1 – more than any other competitor2 – you remain constantly aware of your surroundings. A full top-down view of the vehicle eliminates uncertainty from the hitching process and keeps prevents back and forth trips while setting up the trailer. Less time hitching, more time on the water.

Adventure starts with a vehicle that’s up for anything. Trailblazer combines comfort you want, the versatility you need, and the technology to make every moment count.

But what really sets Silverado apart is the segment-first Advanced Trailering System – an in-vehicle app3 offering customized trailer profiles. Additional features include a pre-departure checklist (so you don’t skip any steps in your excitement), trailer lighting diagnostics, trailer tire pressure/temperature monitoring4, and the ability to create and sync trailering profiles with the myChevrolet Mobile App5.

With Chevy’s advanced trailering technology, you’re more prepared than ever to take on the road with a boat in tow. Trailer Sway Control – a revolution in towing safety technology – automatically adjusts to changes on the road, keeping your haul on a smooth path no matter the conditions. Hill Start Assist gives you the confidence to tow your boat through alternating terrain en route to your perfect lake – whether it’s down the street, or four hours up north.

Consider the winter months an opportunity to prepare for an epic summer adventure. Stop by your local Metro Detroit Chevy Dealer and experience firsthand the way Silverado is changing the game, one boat launch at a time.
