5 Chevy Vehicles Receive 5-Star NHTSA Ratings

2022 Chev Equinox Safety | Ashland, KY

When you’re a teen, you care about your vehicle’s style and speed; but as a parent, your number one priority shifts to safety. Fortunately, Chevrolet engineers design their vehicles to offer award-winning protection. At Don Hall SuperCenter, we’re not asking the Ashland community to just take our word for it — take it from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

For the 2022 model year, the NHTSA has awarded the 5-Star Overall Safety Rating to the Chevy Trax, Trailblazer, Equinox, Blazer, and Camaro. To achieve this prestigious designation, each Chevy model underwent a series of crash tests. The test results showed top scores in front, side, and rollover safety.

The NHTSA also looks for specific safety features when deciding winners. It just so happens that many of the recommended advanced technologies are included in the Chevy Safety Assist suite of driver assistance features, like Lane Keep Assist, Forward Collision Alert, Front Pedestrian Braking, and more.

The 2022 Trailblazer, Equinox, and Blazer are each equipped standard with Chevy Safety Assist. Meanwhile, Chevy’s unique Teen Driver technology comes standard on the Trailblazer, Equinox, Blazer, and Camaro. This innovative tech allows parents to set a speed alert, limit speaker volume, and review a vehicle report card. It even keeps the vehicle in Park until the driver’s seat belt is fastened.

Chevrolet promises peace of mind with award-worthy safety technology. To learn more or take a test drive, contact our team at Don Hall SuperCenter in Ashland, Kentucky.

Pursuit-Rated Chevy Silverado 1500s for Police Departments

Chevrolet has released the first-ever pursuit-rated Silverado 1500 for use by police departments. Known as the Silverado PPV (Police Pursuit Vehicle), the truck comes with a 5.3-liter V8 engine that puts out 355 horsepower and is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

The 2023 Silverado PPV comes with upgrades such as 20-inch rims with all-terrain tires as well 16-inch rotors instead of the standard 13-inch ones on the Silverado 1500 WT.

The rugged Silverado PPV can tow up to 9,300 pounds. A 2-inch suspension lift is optional, allowing pursuits on a wide variety of terrains, from roads to dirt paths to steep, rocky inclines. Special shocks, a skid plate, and a locking rear differential make the Silverado PPV even more durable in an off-road chase.

The interior of the Silverado PPV has plenty of space for police gear, and the front middle seat can be removed to maximize cabin space. Chevy has made it easy to customize the Silverado PPV with features like an optional bed tonneau cover.

The 2023 Chevy Silverado PPV is set to be released this summer. Stay tuned to our blog or give Don Hall Chevrolet a call for more details about this model and the brand’s other Silverado variants.

2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer Secures IIHS Top Safety Pick+ Award

Chevrolet Trailblazer | Ashland, KY

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has awarded the 2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer with its highest honor, the Top Safety Pick+ award. The Top Safety Pick+ category indicates vehicles that perform exceptionally well in crash tests and have high-level crash avoidance technologies.

The prestigious Top Safety Pick+ award is hard to come by. To be a Top Safety Pick, a vehicle has to get high ratings in six different crash tests. Crash prevention tech is what earns the Plus.

The Trailblazer earned a score of “Good,” the highest possible score, on all its crash tests, as well as a top Superior score for its vehicle-to-vehicle crash prevention. The Trailblazer even had to earn a high rating for its headlights.

Part of what helped earn the Trailblazer the Top Safety Pick+ award is its standard Chevy Safety Assist package. Chevy Safety Assist is a suite of six driver assist technologies. These included Forward Collision Alert with Automatic Emergency Braking as well as Front Pedestrian Braking, both of which were tested by the IIHS.

Chevy Safety Assist also comes with Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, which helps drivers avoid drifting into other lanes. Intellibeam High Beam Assist is also standard on the 2022 Trailblazer and toggles the high beam headlights on and off depending on current traffic.

Give a head nod to the Trailblazer’s latest accolade when you take one for a whirl here at Don Hall SuperCenter in Ashland, Kentucky.

Why Wireless Apple CarPlay Is Better than Wired

Apple CarPlay | Ashland, KY

Both the wired and wireless versions of Apple CarPlay® are great technologies that let you access your phone apps and content while you drive safely. But the convenience of Wireless Apple CarPlay® gives it a leg up over the wired version and makes it well worth the cost.

Fewer cords

It’s a big hassle to have to keep track of the right cords, make sure you have extras to charge or sync your phone with and plug the phone in any time you want to use Apple CarPlay®. Wireless Apple CarPlay® makes it so much simpler. You can instantly connect to the system without messing around with cords.

Getting rid of cords has the added bonus of decluttering your car. Wireless Apple CarPlay® makes your cabin feel a little tidier.

No drop in quality

You might worry that using Wireless Apple CarPlay® will result in a lag or that the audio quality will be lower than if you use a wired connection. But thanks to Apple Lossless Audio Codec (ALAC), Apple’s very own audio file compression technology that preserves the quality of the original, music over Wireless Apple CarPlay® is just as high-quality.

Wireless charging pads

One concern with using Wireless Apple CarPlay® is that you can’t charge your phone while you use it. Streaming music or using GPS can be a major battery drain, so this is a valid concern. But with the advent of wireless charging pads, it’s not a problem anymore.

If your car is equipped with a wireless charging pad, you can stream your favorite content and charge at the same time without the mess of cords.

Test-drive a 2022 Chevy equipped with Wireless Apple CarPlay® here at Don Hall SuperCenter or give us a call if you need help using this exciting new feature on your new Chevy vehicle. 

What is a Lifted Truck?

Lifted Silverado | Ashland, KY

Lifted trucks offer head-turning looks and impressive off-roading capabilities. Here’s what you need to know if you’re considering making your Chevrolet Silverado or GMC Sierra into a lifted truck.

Defining a Lifted Truck

A lifted truck boasts a modified suspension system, which adds height to the vehicle. Due to its raised suspension, the truck can ride on larger tires, adding to the vehicle’s overall height. However, this alteration to the suspension can cause other parts of your vehicle to require recalibration or replacement. A truck can also receive a body lift, which does not require additional adjustments.

Some Advantages to Consider

When you lift your truck, you’re giving it more than a striking appearance. In harsh weather, lifted trucks provide better traction and visibility. If you love off-road exploration, your lifted truck will help you traverse the roughest trails with its high ground clearance. And when it’s time to upgrade to a new car, a lifted truck will demand a higher resale value.

In the market for a tough, capable truck that’s perfect for a lift? Choose a Chevrolet Silverado or a GMC Sierra from Don Hall SuperCenter in Ashland, Kentucky. We’ll help match you with the right trim and configuration to fit your budget, lifestyle, and preferences.

The Super Cruise Is Coming To The Silverado | Don Hall GM Supercenter | Ashland, KY

If the Super Cruise system detects a slow-moving vehicle ahead of you, it can automatically change lanes, pass, and return to the lane you were previously in, when safely allowable. The latest Super Cruise update will also allow you to tow while using Super Cruise, so you can enjoy a hands-free ride when bringing along your camper, boat, trailer, or ATVs. And finally, this update even enhances your vehicle’s navigation system. Now, you’ll be able to view Super Cruise-compatible roads and pick routes that enable hands-free driving.

Super Cruise has been continuously improving since it debuted back in 2017. Currently, it’s compatible with over 200,000 miles of roadway throughout the United States and Canada.
