Road trips have never gone out of favor, but road trips are more popular than ever now that the COVID-19 pandemic has hit. With restrictions on air travel and health concerns, more Americans are not only hitting the open road to get away from it all, but more Americans are also planning to road trip during the winter holidays.
According to a recent study from Chevrolet and The Harris Poll of 1,000 Americans, “Nearly 80 percent of Americans credited road trips as helping to keep their sanity during the pandemic.”
SUVs make a great choice for your road trip vehicle thanks to their ample cabin space to keep you and your passengers comfortable, expansive cargo space to secure your bags and gear, and a higher ground clearance for a smoother ride. The Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban deliver all the amenities you need for an epic road trip, including best-in-class cargo volumes and an available Rear Seat Media System equipped with two 12.6-inch diagonal LCD HD touch screens. Your rear passengers can whittle away the hours on the road watching their favorite movies.
“This desire to pack up family and cargo and get out is part of these iconic SUVs’ DNA. The all-new 2021 Tahoe and Suburban have been completely redesigned to offer more space, comfort and technology to make road trips enjoyable and memorable,” said Bob Krapes, Chevrolet Trucks marketing director.
The new, improved, and refreshed versions of the compact SUV Chevrolet Equinox and the mid-size SUV Chevrolet Traverse have been pushed back from their scheduled launch. They are moving to being 2022 model year SUVs, and we at Stingray Chevrolet Bartow are eagerly awaiting their reveal.

of the 2022 Traverse, which hit record sales in 2019 to bring the mid-size SUV
to a total of 1.3 million units sold since its inception in 2009.

The Chevrolet Equinox is one of the most popular models in the Chevrolet lineup. It is stylish, versatile, and is a great fit for families. And now, the updated 2022 Chevrolet Equinox is getting even better with some fresh new styling and more safety features.
Arriving this fall, the 2022 Equinox will come with redesigned front and rear fascias for a fresh, new look. A more aggressive grille and new LED headlamps will give the Equinox a more athletic look. If you want your Equinox to stand out even more, choose the all-new RS trim level.

grille with chrome inserts, 19-inch machine faced wheels, LED headlamps and
taillamps, a logo projection lift gate, French stitching on the seats, and a
gloss black finish on the console.
If you love the winning style of the Chevy Blazer, then get
ready for more where that came from. The 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer has been
announced and is set to arrive at Stingray Chevrolet Bartow early next year,
bringing plenty of substance and style with it.
“The Trailblazer’s great design enables more personalization,” said Steve Majoros, director of Chevrolet passenger car and crossover marketing. “Trailblazer is a continuation of the design language for Chevy’s crossover family and extends our momentum into one of the industry’s fastest-growing segments.”
The 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer will sit between the Trax and
Equinox, giving Chevy one of the most comprehensive crossover and SUV lineups
going. With the Trailblazer’s arrival, Chevrolet will offer the Trax, Equinox,
Blazer, Traverse, Tahoe, and Suburban, making it easier for drivers to get the
vehicle that perfectly fits their needs.
In addition to continuing the style that’s made the new
Blazer such a hit — including offering an RS trim with two-tone roof — the 2021
Chevy Trailblazer will feature standard technologies like Front Pedestrian
Braking, Automatic Emergency Braking, and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure
Warning, making it one of the smartest choices in the segment.
The new Trailblazer is set to arrive early in 2020, so watch this space for more details leading up to launch. When it arrives, you’ll find it right here in the Stingray Chevrolet Bartow showroom.
