The 2020 Chevrolet Equinox is an excellent choice for families wanting a peppy vehicle for their daily drives. The SUV has a number of advanced technologies, including safety systems, which helped it earn its recognition as a 2019 Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety.
To achieve this prestigious status, a vehicle has to perform well in different IIHS tests. The IIHS gave the Equinox a superior rating for its vehicle-to-vehicle front crash prevention system, as well as an advanced rating for its pedestrian front crash prevention. In each of the crashworthiness tests, the SUV also received a good rating.
For 2020, the Equinox comes standard with Automatic Emergency Braking, the Following Distance Indicator, Forward Collision Alert, the Rear Vision Camera, IntelliBeam headlamps and Front Pedestrian Braking.
For added security, you can also opt for available safety features in the Equinox, such as Adaptive Cruise Control – Camera, Rear Park Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert.
Along with its impressive safety equipment, the Equinox gives you the option of a 1.5-liter Turbo engine and a 2.0-liter Turbo engine to power the SUV and handle the road. The more powerful 2.0-liter Turbo engine lets you tow up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped.
The 2020 Chevrolet Equinox has all you need to have peace of mind on drives. Check out its other features when you take a test drive at H&H Chevrolet.
Ordering a pizza has never been easier thanks to Chevrolet Marketplace technology. Marketplace is a free service offered through connected GM models, which allows you to access services and special deals while you’re on the go. The latest company to team up with Chevy on the Marketplace platform is Domino’s Pizza.
Press Of A Button
According to Chevrolet, the new Marketplace feature allows drivers to order either a saved option or their most recent order with the press of a button. With pre-set preferences, the Marketplace system allows you to pick up a pizza in-store or to have it delivered to your home. That means you could have a hot pizza ready to go by the time you get home from a long day of work.
Commitment To Customers
“We admire Chevy’s commitment to providing the technology that consumers want the most,” said Chris Roeser, director of digital experience at Domino’s. “Now, Marketplace will provide pizza lovers an easy way to order the pizza they love.”
The Domino’s pizza ordering feature is just the latest in a string of convenient connectivity features. For instance, you can also access an in-dash fuel payment system through Marketplace, which lets you apply fuel-savings programs at select gas pumps when you fill-up.
Chevy is truly a leader in the industry when it comes to connectivity. Learn more about all the cool technologies in their vehicles at H&H Chevrolet!
Learning to drive and to go out on our own is one of the first steps we take as teenagers toward real adulthood and independence. But when we are on the other end of this process — as parents — it can be a lot less exciting and a lot more worrying. That’s why Chevrolet came out with its Teen Driver technology several years ago, preventing bad teen driver habits in real time and providing feedback to parents for coaching later.
The newest addition to the technology is called Buckle to Drive, and — you guessed it — it encourages teen drivers to wear their seat belts in order to drive their Chevy vehicle. This feature will be standard on the 2020 Chevrolet Malibu, Traverse, and Colorado.
“Buckle to Drive is Chevrolet’s latest feature designed to encourage young drivers to develop safe driving habits right from the start,” said Tricia Morrow, Chevrolet safety engineer. “Buckle to Drive is embedded in Chevrolet’s Teen Driver system and is aimed at helping remind teens to buckle up every time they get behind the wheel.”
If you are a parent driving one of these vehicles, you must turn on Teen Driver to activate the Buckle to Drive feature. The system will then detect if your teen driver is not wearing their seat belt and will alert the driver when this happens, forcing the driver to put it on before continuing.

We’ve witnessed the revival of several iconic Chevrolet nameplates, like the Blazer and TrailBlazer — and based on a recent patent filed by Chevrolet, we may be seeing another triumphant return.
Back in March, the automaker reserved the rights to use the Cavalier name on “motor land vehicles, namely automobiles, sport utility vehicles, trucks, vans, engines therefor and structural parts thereof.”
During its run from 1982-2005, the Cavalier was available as a four-door sedan, two-door coupe, two-door convertible, and even a five-door station wagon. While most of these body styles aren’t a big hit with consumers nowadays, it’s possible that the Cavalier could replace the outgoing Chevrolet Cruze — or return as a hatchback, crossover, or SUV.
In the U.S., Chevrolet hasn’t used the Cavalier nameplate since 2005. However, the Cavalier still enjoys a strong presence around the globe — it’s currently sold in China, while in Mexico, the Cavalier recently replaced the Chevrolet Sonic.
Although General Motors denies rumors that it plans to reintroduce the Cavalier to the U.S. market, it wouldn’t be shocking to see this signature sedan make a comeback.
In a recent survey done by AutoList.com, they asked about 1,750 car shoppers three questions. The first question was their age, the second question was what vehicle brand they would purchase now, and the third was what brand they currently own.
After the results were tallied, Chevrolet came out as the preferred brand for both millennials and the younger buyers of Generation Z.
Reason For The Preference
“Chevy is doing a great job of trading on its reputation as a no-nonsense, affordable brand while at the same time adding to its vehicles the stuff younger buyers covet,” said Chase Disher, an analyst at Autolist.com. “This includes things like Wi-Fi hotspots, Apple CarPlay™, and Android Auto™ connectivity, wireless phone charging and an intuitive infotainment system.”
To show that this wasn’t just a fluke, QuoteWizard did its own study and got similar results. The study found that young buyers are drawn to Chevy, in part because of affordable MSRPs. In addition, the Chevrolet Impala was ranked 6 out of 10 as one of the “most popular cars driven by millennials.”

It happens to all of us: we forget where we parked our car, or we forget to text our family member that we arrived at where we said we were going. Luckily, Chevy has a solution for us, as the automaker has just added a convenient new Vehicle Locate feature to its myChevy smartphone app.
The Vehicle Locate feature has two main functions: Firstly, it stores your vehicle’s location when parking, making it so you’re always able to find your vehicle quickly in crowded lots. Secondly, it allows you to set boundary areas. Once you set a boundary area, you can select which family members and friends you’d like the app to automatically send text alerts to, letting them know that you have arrived at or departed from a particular location. For instance, you can set your workplace as a boundary area and automatically let your special someone know when you leave work and are on your way home. Alternatively, you can set your teen driver’s school as a boundary area, making it so you get an automatic alert when they arrive at school.
With the new feature, everyday travel alerts between family members are made effortless, giving you peace of mind that your loved ones have arrived safely at their destinations. Contact us at H&H Chevrolet if you need help with myChevy app’s new Vehicle Locate function or any of its other functions.
Who says an electric car can’t be fast? The Chevrolet eCOPO Camaro concept fuses the performance muscle car enthusiasts want with the eco-friendly efficiency that environmentalists crave. And it can jet down a drag strip in as little as 9 seconds.
In its initial appearance, the electric Chevrolet Camaro tore down a quarter-mile strip in just 10.14 seconds. That was just at 80-percent power though. The engineers behind the electric model knew they could do better.
The electric Chevrolet Camaro concept features a powertrain that generates 700 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque. The instant torque isn’t definitely impressive. After all, how often does a muscle car manage to pop a wheelie off the starting line?
Not only is the concept fast, but it’s also quiet, like most other electric vehicles. The 800-volt system is comprised of four 175-pound batteries located in the rear of the Camaro for enhanced stability.
As electric cars increase in popularity around the world, the electric Chevrolet Camaro concept might make its way to dealership lots in the near future. Stay tuned for more news on this exciting concept car. In the meantime, stop by to take one of our current Chevy Camaro models for a test drive.
Motor Trend has released a report that Chevrolet is working on a small crossover addition to its lineup—and that it may bear the TrailBlazer name. According to the sources, the new Chevy TrailBlazer will fit between the subcompact crossover Trax and the compact SUV Equinox.
Chevrolet has yet to release any information about whether the new TrailBlazer is anything more than a rumor, but allegedly, when asked about the possibility, Chevy marketing director Steve Majoros implied there was truth to it and said to wait for news over the next few months.
Chevy is of the opinion at you “can’t have too many” crossover and SUV options, given the immense popularity of utility vehicles right now and the demand for crossovers that fit easily on city streets. So whether or not it will carry the TrailBlazer name, a compact crossover between the Trax and Equinox is probably inevitable.
Motor Trend has theorized that spy shots of unreleased Chevy vehicles, previously thought to be the 2020 Trax, could, in fact, be the possible TrailBlazer—especially since the Trax and TrailBlazer would be so close in size that they would be hard to distinguish from each other while camouflaged. The Trax is set to debut a new generation for the upcoming model year, though, so the mystery crossover could easily be the 2020 Trax too.
If you can’t wait for a new TrailBlazer to find an SUV for your personal fleet, contact us at H&H Chevrolet to learn more about what is available now.
The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado has been completely redesigned. It will offer bold new styling, more premium features, and next-generation engine technology. This will include advanced V8 gasoline engines including the proven 5.3-liter and the 6.2-liter, both with Dynamic Fuel Management.
Dynamic Fuel Management
“Chevrolet first introduced its Active Fuel Management cylinder deactivation system in 2005, and Dynamic Fuel Management is a natural progression of the technology,” said Jordan Lee, Small Block chief engineer. “Dynamic Fuel Management enables only the cylinders needed to deliver the power you want, seamlessly delivering the best balance of power and fuel economy.”
Active Fuel Management allowed an engine to switch between eight- and four-cylinder operation as needed. Dynamic Fuel Management, on the other hand, features 17 cylinder patterns. This helps maximize fuel efficiency and power use.
2018 Silverado Comparison
Compared to a 2018 Silverado with Active Fuel Management, a 2019 Silverado with Dynamic Fuel Management operates fewer than eight cylinders 9% more often.
The 5.3-liter V8 is rated at 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. It is paired with a Hydra-Matic eight-speed automatic transmission. For even more power, the 6.2-liter V8 offers 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. It comes with a Hydra-Matic 10-speed automatic transmission. Both engines also come equipped with driver-selectable stop/start technology.
We’re so excited about the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado. Come talk to us at H&H Chevrolet to learn more about its special features.
With the release of the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, we are entering a new generation of truck, not just in style, but more importantly, in technology. The 2019 Silverado’s technology will make trailing and hauling easier, safer, and more intuitive, especially with the available Advanced Trailer System.
Advanced Trailer System
The Advanced Trailer System (ATS) will come standard on LTZ and High Country trims and will be optional on the LT, RST, and Trail Boss models. ATS will offer a variety of innovative features. For starters, it has hitch guidance with a hitch view built in to the backup camera. This will make lining up your hitch with the trailer so much easier.
Once you have the hitch lined up, the auto parking brake assist will activate so your Silverado does not roll slightly out of alignment when you put it in park. This turns on automatically while using the hitch view.
Tire Pressure Monitor
Another great feature is the trailer tire pressure monitor. Once some special equipment is installed on your trailer, you will be able to easily check the pressure and temperature of all the tires on your trailer. Just like with your truck, which tells you when the tire pressure is low, your trailer can do the same thing.
