The 2022 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban Dare To Indulge You Just A Bit More

Tuesday, October 5th, 2021

The Chevrolet company is preparing to revamp their Tahoe and Suburban SUVs for their 2022 model, but don’t worry, they aren’t throwing out the baby with the bath water. Instead, the automaker is simply making their formula more agreeable to a larger crowd, and they’re doing this by making their 6.2-L V8 engine more available. While this motor was previously reserved as the standard engine on the top-ranking High Country trim, and not even an option on the others, it’s now being unlocked on the RST, Z71, and Premier levels. Now more buyers will get to enjoy a thrilling ride with the powertrains output of 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque.

Last month (September 10th), we discussed that this engine might require additional options, with the exclusion of the Premier. The Premier model with the V8 motor has a standalone option. At the same time, RST buyers will need to get the Sport Performance Package, while buyers of the Z71 will have to get either the Z71 Off-Road Package or mixture of packages such as Off-Road Performance, Off-Road Capability, Max Trailering, and Luxury. 

On the Z71 trim, the new electronic limited-slip differential is included in the Off-Road Performance Package, which results in better responsiveness from the rear wheels while driving when the roads are slippery. Those who opt for this package also means that they’ll get the Max Trailering and Luxury Packages too.

The availability of other two engine options in the lineup don’t change, specifically the 5.3-liter V8 with 355 hp and 383 lb-ft, and the 3.0-liter diesel with 277 hp and 460 lb-ft.

Inhouse, beginning with the LT model and up, the gauge cluster expands to a fully digital 12-3 inch display with four preset configurations. Google Automotive has been implemented into the vehicle systems for better integration of particular apps and services. This involves voice commands, which means without plugging in his or her phone, passengers can use Google Assistnt’s voice control to make changes, such as with the stereo volume, the radio stations, or the climate control. The 10.2-inch infotainment touchscreen is brought over, but it will show up to 13 different camera angles when matched with a trailer that it’s compatible with, and a suitable Trailering package. If connected, these images include a a rear trailer view, picture-in-picture side view, and the scene inside a trailer

As part of the brand’s Safety Assist Suite, all trims are geared with Front and Rear Park Assist and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning. It also comes with five surplus driver assist technologies, and even Buckle to Drive. There are five new designs available on particular trims, while each Tahoe and Suburban have three new colors for buyers to select from: Auburn Metallic, Dark Ash Metallic, and Evergreen Gray Metallic.

It’s worth noting that ordering some of these options might be contingent on the current happenings regarding the chip shortage, possibly having you faced with either lessening some items off your shopping list or just being patient. The 2022 Tahoe and Suburban will begin their production at General Motors Arlington, Texas facility in October, with pricing being announced at a later date.

The 2022 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban Set The Standard For Full-Size SUVs

Friday, September 10th, 2021

New Features For 2022

As with many automakers, the Chevrolet company performed a few nips and tucks on their new vehicles, particularly the upcoming Tahoe SUV and its extended Suburban sibling. Improvements that have been made the inside (all but base LS model) include a new 12-inch digital gauge display fenced in by a conventional analog tacho- and speedometer. These trims also receive a standard navigation system from the 10.2-inch central infotainment touchscreen. Additional standard features include Lane-Keeping Assist and parking sensors. At the same time, Reverse Automatic Braking is included in the high-ranking trims’ Enhanced Display and Alert package. Lastly, the 6.2-liter V8 option stretches to the ZR1, RST and Premier models, but with the exclusion of the Premier, you’ll need to select one or more packages.

Size Increase and Cargo Capacity

Last year, parent company, General Motors gave their full-size SUVs a complete revamp after nearly thirty years. These enhancements included a highly-anticipated switch to the independent rear suspension, which in turn allowed for extra interior space and cargo capacity. The 2022 Tahoe increased its overall length by 6.7 inches, along with 4.9 inches of its wheelbase. Meanwhile, the Suburban added 1.3 inches to its length and an incredible 4.1 inches to its wheelbase.

The Tahoe’s interior gains 3 inches of legroom in the second row, and a surplus of 10.1 inches in the third row partly due to the lower floor. The Surban also increases its space by a bit over 2 inches of legroom in each row.

Cargo space also made great improvements. In the Tahoe SUV, cargo measurements have increased by 10.2 cubic feet (specifically 25.5 cubes), while the Suburban increased its space by 2.2 cubic feet (overall 41.5 cubes).

Performance and Towing Specifications

There are three different engine types to pick for the 2022 Tahoe and Suburban. The entry-level motor is a naturally aspirated 5.3-liter V8, which has an output of 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. It’s matched with a 10-speed automatic transmission and has an available rear-wheel-drive (RWD) or four-wheel-drive (4WD).

Optional on the Z71, RST, Premier and High Country models is another naturally aspirated V8, but a 6.2-liter. It musters up 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. As with the 5.3-liter, it includes the same type of automatic and drive systems.

Additionally, the automaker is offering a unique diesel 3.0-liter inline-six engine, which is only one like in its class. It has an output of 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, and also shares the 10-speed automatic.

Towing capacities range from 7,500 and 8,000 lbs subject to body style, engine, and drivetrain. The tow package also increases capacity with each model, but only by a small margin.

Available Features

Basic gear that you’ll find in the beloved Chevrolet SUVs are the 5.3-liter V8, engine and transmission coolers, and a limited-slip differential. External features involve 18-inch alloy wheels, heated side mirrors, running boards, rear parking sensors, LED headlights and remote start. Internal gadgets encompass three-zone climate control, eight-way power driver seat and six-way power passenger seat, the 10-inch infotainment screen, 4.2-inch screen in the instrument cluster, a six-speaker sound system, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, driver assist features.

On higher trims, like the Z71, drivers get to revel in the charming and exclusive front fascia and bumper, which provides the car with a more aggressive appearance. It also includes hill-descent control, 20-inch wheels, all-terrain tires and a skid plate. Then, the luxurious High Country comes with the 6.2-liter V8, magnetic and air suspension, 22-inch wheels, 360-degree cameras, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring and lane keep assist, rear camera mirror, leather heated and cooled front seats, heated steering wheel, heated second-row seats, power-folding rear seats, a large instrument panel screen and head-up display, 10-speaker Bose sound system, and wireless phone charging.

On top of this, there are optional towing assist on both SUVs, which have cameras that have up to nine different views for maneuvering and monitoring one’s trailer. They are standard with a trailer guidance feature along with a rear-view camera. There’s even an app on the infotainment system that allows users to store information about their trailer and perform various checks as they hook up the motor home.

Safety and Driver Assist Features

At last, the Chevy Tahoe and Suburban advocate for safety as they provide owners with an array of technologies, such as the standard automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist, front and rear parking sensors, automatic high-beam headlights, and a rear-seat reminder. Optional technologies (standard on higher trims) include reverse automatic emergency braking, blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, parking sensors and adaptive cruise control.

2022 Chevy Bolt EUV And Bolt EV Are Arriving Ahead Of Schedule To Dealerships

Friday, May 21st, 2021

It’s official! The new 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV crossover, along with the revamped 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV hatchback have entered production at General Motors Lake Orion Assembly plant, and are already ahead of schedule in making their way towards dealership lots.

This week, the automaker posted a photo of the upcoming Bolt in the midst of its last inspection on the assembly line, which prompted the caption, “The future is all-electric. The new 2022 Bolt EUV and redesigned Bolt EV have left the factory and are shipping to a Chevrolet dealership near you.”

This revelation comes as quite a surprise, since many automakers experienced delays on rollouts and arrivals due to the microchip shortage, and issues with supply chains. In spite of this, the arrival of the two EV models are coming a month earlier than GM initially said, towards the end of May.

The latest and greatest Bolt EUV and EV made their initial introduction back in February, with the automaker saying at the time that these electrics would start production this summer. The starting price for the hatchback is at $31,995, (plus destination fee). In concert, the EUV has a starting price at $33,995, (plus destination fee). By comparison, the 2021 model year for the Bolt EV, was priced from $37,890, (plus destination fee).

Both of these models get their power from a 288-cell lithium-ion battery pack with a rating of 65 kWh, which delivers power to a front-mounted electric motor that has a maximum power output of 200 horsepower with 266 lb-ft of torque. Additionally, the Bolt EUV has an EPA rating of 259 miles from a full charge, while the family-friendly EUV has an estimated range of 247 miles.

The upcoming Bolt EV and EUV are the GM’s most inexpensive electric vehicles at this time and have been viewed as an integral part of its overall objective for each driver to eventually ride in an electric vehicle.

“We want to put everyone in an EV and the new Bolt EUV and redesigned Bolt EV are crucial to doing so,” GM President Mark Reuss commented during the time of the vehicles’ introduction. “Together, they enable mainstream customers to be part of our vision of zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion.”

Although it was recently reported that the Bolt EUV, in particular, wouldn’t break the 250-mile mark, as expected, it still offers more than enough driving range to work with. On top of this, it makes up for it with extra space in the rear seating area, as well as additional comfort features. It even has an available sunroof and GM’s Super Cruise hands-free driver-assist system. 

Moreover, both the latest Bolt EV and EUV offer an updated seat design, as well as a slew of interface changes like a one-pedal driving mode. Buyers should also expect Android and Apple CarPlay compatibility, and a new Level 2 mobile charging cord.

The arrival of the 2022 Bolt EV and Bolt EUV is fast approaching, and when that time finally comes, be sure to make your purchase at Miami Lakes Automall. We sell a wide range of Chevrolet vehicles, including that of the 2021 Bolt EV.

What We Know So Far About The 2022 Chevy Blazer

Monday, May 17th, 2021

 

In 2018, Chevrolet released its Blazer SUV, once again bringing to life its famous nameplate. It was considered quite unexpected, seeing as the name “Blazer” was previously associated with more adventurous vehicles, like the Trailblazer. Nevertheless, the automaker took the smart move by fitting in with the times, as the rise of family-friendly crossovers is undeniable. 

For its upcoming model, the company is offering some minor changes here and there. Here’s everything that you need to know about the 2022 Chevrolet Blazer.

It’s Keeping Its Three Engine Options

Chevrolet’s main intent of launching its crossover line-up was to introduce a sense of comfort and easiness to the drivers and their passengers as much as possible, therefore, one shouldn’t expect a complete revamp of powertrain options each model and every model year. 

In this case, there is hardly a change at all. The standard 2.5-liter 4-cylinder has 193 horsepower and lb-ft of torque, and will only be available with front-wheel-drive (FWD). The next engine is the optional 2.0-liter turbocharger, it produces an excellent 237 horsepower with 258 lb-ft of torque. It’s also quite fuel-efficient and will have an available all-wheel-drive (AWD) system. 

The third and final option that has the most pep in its step is the 3.6-liter V6 engine, pushing out 308 horsepower with 270 lb-ft of torque. All three motors are joined with a 9-speed automatic transmission.

Maintains Its Lovable Crossover Body

Contrary to its venturesome roots, the crossover is made for the city streets. The early design of this Chevrolet vehicle is derived from the automaker’s iconic muscle car, the Camaro. The Blazer has a style that is incredibly modern and sleek, which is helped by features like the sharp lines, slender headlights, sloped roofline, and larger two-layered grille.

The 2022 model will keep the same unibody frame, as well as the wheelbase of 113 inches and the length of 192 inches. Then, the 64.3 cubic feet of cargo space should satisfy basic needs. There’s also a generous amount of space in both the front and back row. Interior elements like the trim pieces and circular air vents will follow-on the newest model.

Already Born With Plenty Of Features

Chevrolet has already packed on the safety and comfort features in its models. The 2022 Blazer will continue to sport standard nifties like an 8-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto compatibility, AM/FM radio dual-zone climate control a six-speaker stereo, Bluetooth audio streaming, in-car wireless internet hardware, four USB ports, plus cruise control, keyless entry, 18” wheels, and all-season tires.

Optional features will also carry over, such as wireless smartphone charging rear park assist, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic emergency braking, front pedestrian braking, lane keep assist, lane change alert with blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, a rear camera mirror, a surround-view parking camera system, forward collision alert, high-speed automatic emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control.

Moreover, since it was recently announced that the upcoming Blazer will lose its entry-level L and 1LT, this may allow certain features that were previously exclusive to trims in a higher tier to become standard.

Today’s Automotive Trend May Change The Cost

For the past few years, automakers have been slowly making the transition to electric vehicles. With upcoming EVs like the Ford Mustang Mach-E, Tesla Model X and Y, and Hyundai Kona Electric, it’s quite plausible that Chevy may want to follow suit with its 2022 Blazer. 

Though there is no official announcement in this regard nor the starting price, it’s estimated that the cost will range from $29,000, (plus destination fee) to $45,000, (plus destination fee). The mid-size vehicle is also set to go on sale close to November 2021.
