2022 Chevrolet Tahoe LT | Garland, TX

For the 2022 model year, the rugged and impressive Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban are getting more technology and more power. These popular SUVs will come with more standard safety features, improvements to infotainment technology, and more mechanical options.

The 6.2-liter V8 option has been a popular powertrain option on both the Tahoe and Suburban. In 2022, this option will be available on three more trims, the RST, Z71, and Premier. It comes standard on the High Country trim. This engine delivers 420 horsepower and comes with a dual exhaust and Dynamic Fuel Management that helps optimize efficiency.

Improving visibility for the Tahoe and Suburban, both SUVs will be available with up to 13 unique camera views. These views will be helpful while hitching up a trailer, navigating through narrow spaces, or even while driving. You can use the available transparent trailer view that lets you “see through” your trailer if there is another vehicle coming up from behind.

Another updated technology feature is a large 12.3-inch configurable digital instrument cluster. This comes standard on the LT trims and above on both the Tahoe and Suburban. You can choose from four layouts and customize what information you would like to see.

For additional security, these SUVs now come standard with Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning and Front and Rear Park Assist.

How to Prepare for Towing with Your Chevy Model

2021 Chevrolet Tahoe Towing Boat | Garland, TX

If you drive a Chevrolet truck or SUV and plan to do any towing, you need to prepare your vehicle before you hit the road. Read these tips to make sure you are safe and secure before you start towing with your Chevy model.

Check your tires

Towing puts additional pressure on your tires. Check the tire pressure and the condition of all the tires on your vehicle and on your trailer. If your trailer has been stored outside, inspect the tires carefully for dry rot or cracking.

Keep up with maintenance

Towing makes your vehicle work harder than usual. To help avoid any potential engine problems, make sure your Chevy is up to date with its maintenance. This should include an oil change, the condition of your brakes, transmission fluid, and engine coolant.

Check your hitch

Make sure the ball on your trailer hitch is the size you need for the coupler on your trailer. One major cause of towing accidents is incorrectly sized hitch balls.

Be prepared

Just like any other driving situation, you need to be prepared for potential problems. You need at least one spare tire for your trailer along with a lug nut wrench that fits your trailer’s wheels.

Don’t forget safety chains

Always attach the trailer safety chains before your start driving. Cross them in an X shape underneath the hitch instead of running them straight. When they are crossed, they will hopefully catch the trailer tongue instead of it falling into the road, if the hitch should fail.

How to Get the Most Money for Your Trade-In at Jupiter Chevrolet

2021 Chevrolet Suburban | Garland, TX

When you are ready to purchase a new vehicle, you likely have to get rid of your old one first. While you could spend lots of time and energy selling it yourself, trading in your old car at the dealership is simpler, faster, and can even help you save money on your next purchase. In order to get the most money for your trade-in, follow these tips.

Clean the exterior

A car or truck that looks good on the outside is automatically more appealing than one covered in mud and dust, so give your vehicle a good wash before trading it in. Don’t forget to clean your wheels. You might also consider taking care of minor dents and scratches.

Declutter the interior

Take some time to clean out the inside of your car too. Throw out any junk and remove all your personal items. Wipe down the hard surfaces and try to clean any stains on the upholstery. And be sure you only use products that are appropriate for the surfaces in your car.

Handle minor repairs

Consider taking care of minor, inexpensive repairs like foggy headlights. Don’t worry about more expensive repairs, like fixing damaged wheels or major dents, since these are often cheaper for the dealership to do.

Signs Your Chevy Is Due for New Tires

2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer | Garland, TX

If you plan on doing a lot of driving this summer, you’re going to want to be sure that your Chevy is up for the task. Having healthy tires is essential for safe driving, so you’ll want to heed these signs that might suggest your Chevy is due for a new set.

Failing the penny test  

When your tires don’t have the proper amount of tread, you won’t get the kind of consistent performance your Chevy should deliver. What’s more, it can actually be dangerous to drive on tires with insufficient tread. To make sure you’re getting what you need from your tires, try the penny test. Put a penny in the treads of your tires with Abraham Lincoln’s head pointing downward. If you can see the top of his head, you need new tires.

Bulging and cracking

You should be inspecting your tires regularly to be sure they’re properly inflated and in good health. If you see bulging or bubbling on a tire’s sidewall or a significant amount of cracking in the rubber, you have a tire that’s at a higher risk of going flat or blowing out. Avoid driving on tires with these symptoms at all costs.

Not sure if your tires are in the shape they should be? Leave it to the certified service experts at Jupiter Chevrolet in Garland, Texas. We’ll help you keep your current tires healthy with regular rotations and balancing, and we can quickly and easily replace your old set when it’s time.

How to Protect Your Chevy From the Heat in Garland, TX

2021 Chevrolet Equinox | Garland, TX

If there’s one thing folks in Garland know about summer in Texas, it’s that it gets awfully hot out here. The sun and rising temperatures won’t just take a toll on you if you’re not careful — it can also have negative effects on your vehicle. However, if you take preventative steps to protect your Chevy from the heat, you can get out and enjoy your summer with less worry.

Find a safe spot to park

The next time you grab a parking spot, see if you can put your Chevy in the shade somewhere. Keeping your vehicle out of direct sunlight will minimize sun damage to the exterior and interior as well as help reduce the temperature in the cabin.

Buy the right accessories

Your Chevrolet is an investment, so protect it from the summer heat with the right accessories. A windshield sun protector and seat covers can help prevent materials like leather and plastic from being worn down by intense ultraviolet light. If you can’t find a shaded spot to park, you can also opt for a car cover, which will at least protect your ride from direct sunlight.

Keep it clean

Washing, drying, and waxing your vehicle won’t just have your Chevy looking spiffy. Doing it regularly will help remove dirt and protect your vehicle’s exterior from ultraviolet rays over time.

The only thing hotter than the summer heat in Garland is the new Chevy lineup. Visit Jupiter Chevrolet and see what’s new from the bowtie brand and for all your summer service needs.

Differences between the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado and the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Chevrolet Colorado and Chevrolet Silverado 1500 | Garland, TX

There’s a Chevrolet truck for every lifestyle and budget. The 2021 Chevrolet Colorado and the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 are both tough, capable trucks with plenty of power, off-road prowess, and towing capability, but they’re designed to suit different needs. Here’s a look at how they differ.

Size difference

When it comes to size, the Silverado 1500 is the larger of the two trucks. Classified as a full-size pickup, the Silverado 1500 is more of a family vehicle — it offers more headroom, legroom, and cargo volume than its smaller sibling. The Colorado, on the other hand, is a midsize truck. Thanks to its more compact size, it’s better suited to city driving and maneuvering though tight spots on off-road trails.

Engine options

While both of these Chevy trucks offer plenty of power, the Silverado delivers more horsepower and torque than its midsize stablemate. On the Colorado, you’ll be able to pick from three engine options that range in power from the base-trim 200-horsepower 2.5-liter engine to the Duramax® turbo-diesel that unleashes 369 horsepower. The Silverado starts out with a 285-horsepower engine maxes out with a 420-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 dynamo.

Capability

As a larger truck, the Silverado 1500 offers a greater towing capacity and higher payload capacity than the Colorado. With the Silverado 1500, you can tow up to 13,300 pounds or haul a maximum of 2,280 pounds. By comparison, the Colorado maxes out at 7,700 pounds of towing and 1,550 pounds of payload when properly equipped — which is still plenty of muscle for towing boats and trailers or transporting supplies for your next DIY project.

Whether you’re in the market for the Chevrolet Colorado or the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, you can find the perfect truck to suit your needs at Jupiter Chevrolet in Garland, Texas.

Tips for Buying a Used Chevy Truck

Chevrolet Silverado 1500 | Garland, TX

Whether you’re looking for a reliable workhorse or your next family vehicle, a pre-owned Chevrolet Silverado or Colorado can fit the bill. With impressive power, plenty of versatility, and a wide variety of trim level options, it’s easy to find a Chevy truck that fits both your needs and budget. Here are a few tips to make the buying process even easier.

Think about what you want from your truck

When shopping for a truck, consider what you intend to use it for. If it’s a family vehicle, you may want to narrow your search to models with spacious seating configurations. If you plan on hauling home improvement supplies, you may benefit from a long-bed model. Finally, if you crave outdoor adventures, pick a truck with four-wheel drive, a Z71 suspension, or a factory-installed lift kit.

Take it for a test drive

Before you sign on the dotted line, consider taking the truck for a test drive to confirm that it’s the right choice for you. Make sure that the vehicle fits you comfortably, and that you and your family members are comfortable climbing into and out of the truck. Try out the lights, infotainment system, and climate controls, and get to know the way it handles. You may learn that you’d prefer a larger or smaller Chevy truck.
