We have moved several times throughout our adulthood. We quickly learned that having a truck was almost mandatory for our family. Not only for hauling bulky items, but we needed a safe and spacious space for two car seats as well.
A few weeks ago, our friends at Chevrolet dropped off their 2019 Chevy Silverado 4WD LTZ Crew to test out for the week. It was a beautiful shiny white exterior, smooth leather interior, and every safety feature at your fingertips.
Here are a few Chevy Silverado features we used and loved every day:
- 4G LTE Wi-Fi
- This feature allows you to stay connected on the road, Skype or video chat, stay on top of work if needed, and stream movies and music, etc. from the road. Can connect 7 devices at once – that means your family will be entertained and can download movies, TV shows or books to your device on the road without using ANY DATA! This was my personal favorite. I was able to work on my laptop while my toddler watched a movie during carpool. To my defense, she woke up super early and refused to nap. It was the only way we were going to survive carpool without any tears!
- Apple CarPlay/Android Auto
- Apple CarPlay takes the iPhone features you’d want to access while driving and puts them on the vehicle’s display – so you can make calls, send/receive messages and listen to your favorite playlists right from the touchscreen or by voice via Siri.
- Android Auto is built around Google Maps giving you the ability to talk to Google and use several different apps straight from your car’s display screen.
- myChevrolet Mobile App
- The myChevrolet app turns your mobile device into a command center for your vehicle. This app allows you to start/stop your engine and lock/unlock your doors from your smart phone. You can even send destinations to your available navigation system, view diagnostic information, customize Wi-Fi settings and set parking reminders from virtually anywhere. This was super helpful during the Texas heat. We all know the metal on the seatbelt can get very hot and not safe for little kids.
- Active Safety Features
- The all-new 2019 Silverado offers a comprehensive suite of available safety features like Front & Rear Park Assist, Rear Vision Camera, OnStar, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, and more. Wherever you go, they help instill tremendous confidence.
