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.

Ways to Make Your Older Chevy Feel New Again for the New Year

Ready for a fresh start? In addition to pursuing healthier habits for the new year, you can give your Chevy a makeover for a better daily drive. Here’s a look at three easy ways to make your older Chevy feel new again for 2022.

Detailed cleaning

The new year is a great time to wash off all the dirt, grime, and road salt that your car accumulated in 2021. On the outside, give it a thorough wash. Remember to pay special attention to the rims, wheel wells, and undercarriage, since these areas tend to trap rust-causing debris. Once your Chevy is clean, give it a thorough waxing to help protect it from the elements. Inside the cabin, remove trash, like wrappers, fast food bags, and empty bottles, then vacuum up leftover debris.

A breath of fresh air

Once the cabin is nice and clean, consider buying an air freshener or diffuser to give your car a fresh scent. Also, check your service records to see the last time you had the cabin air filter changed. An old cabin air filter can pump stale smells into your vehicle, so if it’s time for a new filter, have it swapped out so you can enjoy cleaner, fresher air.

Add accessories

Give your car a fresh look and feel with genuine Chevrolet accessories. A new set of floor mats and seat covers — both tailored to the model of your Chevy — can dress up a cabin with stained, worn upholstery. Cargo bay organizers help you keep clutter under control, and headrest-mounted tablet holders can help your little ones stay entertained on the road.

In order to make the list, the small SUVs had to receive high ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and high crash test scores from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The vehicles also had to offer some standard driver-assist technologies.

2021 GMC Terrain

The 2021 GMC Terrain received “Good” ratings in the six IIHS crashworthiness tests and a “Superior” rating for its vehicle-to-vehicle front crash prevention system. The SUV also earned a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA. In addition to its standard Automatic Forward Emergency Braking, the 2021 Terrain also offers a number of available driver-assist technology that helps drivers stay safe on the road, such as blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, and lane change alert.

2021 Chevrolet Equinox

Similar to the 2021 Terrain, the 2021 Chevy Equinox also received a five-star safety rating from the NHTSA. On top of its “Good” IIHS crashworthiness test ratings, the small SUV also earned the Top Safety Pick rating with its available headlights.

Great News for Ashland Truck Fans: The Silverado Gets the Multi-Flex Tailgate!

Wish it was easier to load and unload your truck’s bed? Chevrolet will be adding a feature to the 2022 Silverado HD that you’re going to love: the Multi-Flex Tailgate.

The Silverado Gets the Multi-Flex Tailgate | Don Hall Supercenter | Ashland, KY

If you’re always stacking lumber and bags of concrete in the back of your truck here in Ashland, Kentucky, the Multi-Flex Tailgate will make that task much easier. How? By providing easier access to the back of the truck and more versatile accommodation of long items.

Here’s how it works: The Multi-Flex Tailgate can be configured six different ways on the Silverado HD thanks to an innovative inner flap inside the tailgate that’s on a separate hinge. Flip it open and down to use it as a step into the bed, swing it out to add an extra foot of storage for long items, or lift it up and out to have a makeshift desk for mobile office work.

If you’re worried about straining the inner tailgate, you won’t have to worry. It can handle up to 375 pounds of weight stacked on it — it’s just as heavy-duty as the rest of the truck! The Multi-Flex Tailgate debuted on the Silverado 1500 for the 2021 model year, so it’s not a surprise that the Chevy Silverado HD is receiving it for 2022. It’s a great tool for your work on the farm, ranch, or build site here in Ashland — and one more reason to buy a 2022 Silverado HD from Don Hall SuperCenter.
