With football season right around the corner, we know a lot of UofL Cardinals and UK Wildcats are gearing up for another season. That means lots tailgating and more Corn-hole tournaments than you can stand!

The Bachman family are major UK Wildcat Fans, so we’ve rounded up Chevrolet’s Best Tailgating Models for the next big game. Check out our top three below and read on for the best tailgating features they have to offer.

Chevrolet Silverado

Red 2016 Chevy Silverado driving down a country road to tailgate

The Chevy Silverado is known for its strength and performance and continues to build upon the legacy of the most dependable, long-lasting full-size pickup on the road.

The Silverado is equipped with plenty of comfortable seats in the cabin and plenty of room in the bed to stash all of your tailgating goodies and equipment and will hold your Corn-hole boards, coolers, chairs and other tailgating essentials.

With cutting edge technology features, the Silverado will keep you connected as you enjoy your day tailgating. Crank up the available Bose system and hear just like you were at the game! You can also charge your compatible smartphone by using the cordless charging pad built into the center armrest.

Worried about data charges? Just connect your device to the 4G LTE Wi-Fi®. The signal is more powerful than your smartphone and provides a connection for up to seven devices.

Chevrolet Suburban


The Suburban is the alpha dog of best-selling full-size SUVs. It has plenty of seating options without sacrificing safety or comfort. With a killer fuel economy and plenty of space, this is the ultimate tailgating vehicle.

Pop the trunk and lay out all the tailgating treats. With convenient seating options including available power-release second-row and a flat, folding third row, the Suburban keeps passengers comfortable with plenty of room for stashing folding chairs, tables and more.

If you plan on enjoying the day outside of the stadium, the available built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi keeps everyone informed with what’s going on inside the game as you relax outside. Turn up the volume, sit back, relax and enjoy the day!

Chevrolet Equinox

Chevrolet Equinox

While this compact SUV may be unexpected for a tailgating vehicle, the Chevrolet Equinox is packed with fuel-efficient technology that makes every adventure easy on the wallet.

You can listen to the game or the perfect tailgating tunes through the Chevrolet MyLink system. The available built in Wi-Fi allows you to watch all the highlights of the game without draining your data plan.

We can totally see why the Equinox was awarded Highest Ranked Compact SUV two years in a row, with the convenient 60/40 split-folding seats. The Multi-Flex® sliding seats add more leg room and additional cargo space. Loading up on groceries, portable grills and other tailgating equipment is a cinch in this compact SUV.
