The new year is coming up, and that means it’s time to start making New Year’s resolutions. Commit to safer driving by making these resolutions in 2022.
1: Use your turn signal
Failing to signal when you change lanes or make a turn makes it harder for drivers around you to anticipate what you’re going to do. If you’re not in the habit of signaling when you change lanes, use this opportunity to change that.
2: Go the speed limit
Studies show that speeding doesn’t actually help you get where you’re going much faster. It might shave a minute or two off your drive depending on how far you’re going, but is it really worth it for the increased risk of an accident? Slow down in the new year.
3: Leave space
Tailgating is a dangerous habit, especially in the winter time. If you’re too close to the vehicle ahead of you and they need to stop suddenly, you might not have time to stop before crashing into them, potentially hurting them and you.
4: Reduce distractions
If you text or talk while you drive, resolve to eliminate those distractions in the coming year. Set up automatic responses while you’re driving so your phone won’t show you notifications, letting you keep your eyes on the road.
5: Stay up to date on vehicle maintenance
One of the best ways to drive more safely is to make sure your car is safe. Take care of your car and get regular maintenance done, such as oil changes and tire rotations. Having a tire blow out on the highway is a great way to get yourself and other cars into an accident.
The Don Hall SuperCenter team wishes you and yours a happy and safe New Year’s. Make sure to contact us for all of your vehicle’s needs in 2022.
The new Super Cruise features include automatic lane changing functionality. 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. If you’d like to get behind the wheel of a Super Cruise-enabled vehicle, come browse our inventory at the Don Hall SuperCenter in Ashland, Kentucky.
Every year, it seems like Chevrolet finds some way to improve the already-incredible Silverado 1500. It seems that 2022 model year is no exception for the innovative automaker, either. Here’s some of the updates you can expect on the new 2022 Silverado 1500.
A new interior
When you opt for a 2022 Silverado 1500 with LT trim or higher, you’ll get an upgrade to an all-new interior. These major interior modifications include a gigantic 13.4-inch infotainment screen, electronic shifter, sophisticated dash, and optional wood trim.
Though good looks are important, Chevy has also updated its Silverado 1500 to be even more capable for 2022. The 2.7-liter powertrain now produces even more torque than before, and the diesel powertrain model is now capable of towing up to 13,300 pounds.
An off-road variant
Catering to its most adventurous customers, Chevy is introducing an all-new ZR2 trim level to the existing Silverado 1500 lineup. This fierce trim level comes with a host of off-road ready features for you to tackle to trails with, like a two-inch lift, skid plates, 33-inch tires, and Multimatic shocks and springs.
If you want to be the first to know when the updated 2022 Silverado 1500 hits the lot at Don Hall SuperCenter, keep in touch with us on social media.

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. U.S. News & World Report writers also highlighted the Equinox’s comfortable interior that features a user-friendly infotainment system.
If you want to learn more about these two small SUVs and take them for a test drive, contact the team at Don Hall SuperCenter.
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.
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.
