Summer is here… and boy we can feel it! Now that the kids are out of school for the summer, Moms and Dads everywhere are deciding where to go and what to do with their families.
For many parents, the family car becomes a second home and … a storage unit of interesting sorts. Racing the kids to and from soccer practice, errands and work, you are in your vehicle a lot. Factoring in the summer activities and looking forward to school starting back in August, we guess you will be in your car much more.
Which model is going to be the most comfortable and practical for those long trips and zips around town? We took a look at Chevrolet’s lineup of awesome models and broke down a few of the best models for long trips and chauffeuring little ones around.
Best Chevrolet Models for Summer Travel
Let’s face it, when you think of the classic soccer mom, chances are you picture her driving a Suburban. The features that the Suburban offers are enough to provide comforts of home, even while you are on the road. The Suburban has the trunk space as well as the people space for a large group.
With built-in WiFi capabilities and a center console large enough for a laptop, your car can easily be transformed into a mobile office or to keep your passengers entertained with no problem. Learn more about Chevy WiFi here.
The Suburban entertainment package also includes a screen for each row of the model, so you never have to worry about the kiddos in the back row missing out on the movie. If you are making the long road trip to the beach or a trip to the mountains for summer heat relief, this is every parent’s dream!
The Tahoe is the little brother to the Suburban, but don’t discount the capabilities of this SUV. It has the same features like the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
With virtually the same features as the Suburban, from the available WiFi to the safety features, the Tahoe is a good choice for those who still want to seat up to 9 people, but are intimidated by the size.
Despite the shorter length, the Tahoe model is capable of towing boats or trailers well up to 8,600 pounds—a task that usually requires a truck! We are especially in love with such great safety technology features like Lane Keep Assist, which can help keep drivers stay steady. Also, the OnStar Remote Link allows you to seek help or even start your vehicle remotely.
This midsize SUV is an absolute contender for the best mom car, it has the ability to seat 8 passengers. With three rows, there is still enough space to take extra kids for ice cream out after the ball game. WiFi is an available feature as well as an available entertainment package robust enough to keep everyone occupied. With the brand new body style for 2018 – the new Traverse is sure to please!
Here are some other features that might make every mom sigh with relief:
- Power-Remote Liftgate – With a simple push of a button, the available power-remote liftgate makes loading and unloading a breeze.
- Smart Slide – The Smart Slide second-row seating allows easy access to the third row.
- Unconventional Storage – Available sliding armrest with storage.
- Cargo Space – The Chevy Traverse boasts 116 cubic feet of cargo space.
- Trailering – When properly equipped, the Traverse is rated for 5,200-lb. trailering.
