So, you’ve packed all the presents, the tank is full, everyone (supposedly) has gone to the bathroom and you have plenty of drinks and snacks for at least the first couple of hours. All your boxes are checked and you’re ready for a stress-free holiday trip to Grandma’s house, right? Not so fast, Santa’s helper. According to a recent survey by the Harris Poll conducted on behalf of Chevrolet, the number one item that causes stress in holiday driving is the inability to keep the kids entertained. “Are we there yet?” is the question that starts roughly 30 minutes into the trip and can continue every five minutes thereafter if the little passengers in the second and third rows are not sufficiently occupied with games, puzzles, books or some other thing to keep their minds off the miles and miles of desert between Phoenix and granny’s house. If you plan a long trip, head over to Chapman Chevrolet and look at all the vehicles that offer entertainment for the second and/or third rows. It will make your trip much more pleasant.

Your Vehicle is Like Sitting Down to Dinner

A long road trip can be likened to a family holiday dinner. If everyone is behaved and the meal is good, it can make pleasant memories that last a lifetime. Conversely, the opposite is true. “The vehicle is the new family dinner table, where memories are created and bonds grow strong,” according to Chevy director of marketing Steve Majoros. “As families prepare to hit the road this holiday to spend time with friends and family, they can depend on crossovers like the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse and Equinox to meet their needs, from storage space to USB outlets, available 4G LTE Wi-Fi and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.” The ability of the new Chevy lineup to turn a vehicle into a rolling hotspot allows your kids to watch movies or play games on their tablets, without interfering with anyone’s good times. Of course, that may dampen the participation in the Holiday sing-a-longs, but a quiet trip is an enjoyable trip.

More Technology Equals More Trips

Of all the people surveyed who do not have vehicle Wi-Fi, about 33 percent said they would go on longer trips more often with their family if they had Internet connectivity in their car. People who already have Wi-Fi in their vehicle says that technology allows them to take more frequent and longer trips. The great American road trip is still very popular among many families, according to the survey, as 93 percent of all parents say they like or love spending hours in the vehicle with their family while heading to a fun destination. With the new OnStar unlimited data plan, you can provide hours of entertainment for everyone in your vehicle while you stream your favorite music. Check out all the technology before you take your Holiday road trip by visiting Chapman Chevrolet in Tempe.

All hail the ZR1, returning the Chevy Corvette to its rightful status as the dominant supercar in a field full of pretenders. The 2019 Corvette ZR1 will be the fastest Corvette ever produced. Powered by a 755-horsepower LT5 engine, next year’s ZR1 will also produce 715 pounds of torque, guaranteed to pin you back in your seat as you launch off the line. “I’ve never driven a Corvette like this before, and nobody else has either, because there’s never been one like this before,” according to Chevy supply chain VP Mark Reuss. “Its unprecedented performance puts all other global supercars on notice that the ZR1 is back.” Be first in line to buy the fastest Corvette ever when it makes an appearance at Chapman Chevrolet in Tempe.

Aerodynamics Plus Power Equals Performance

Start with the new supercharged 6.2L V8 that delivers the highest energy output ever for a Chevrolet production vehicle. A new highly-efficient cooled supercharger combines with Chevy’s first dual fuel-injection system to combine a mixture of gasoline and air that results in an explosion of power that’s certain to plaster a smile on your face. You can choose a seven-speed manual transmission if you really like to get involved in the driving experience, or take the eight-speed automatic that does the work when you’re feeling relaxed, but gives you the option of using the paddle shifters on the steering wheel when the moment feels right. Two new aerodynamics packages have been fined-tuned after many hours of wind tunnel testing to produce up to 950 pounds of downforce, keeping your new Chevy Corvette ZR1 glued to the road. “As the highest-performing Corvette ever, the ZR1’s design supports its capability in every way,” according to design manager Kirk Bennion. “The new wings, for example, help generate more downforce without adding drag, enhancing road holding and top speed.”

Dynamic Design Unquestionably That of a Supercar

The new Chevy Corvette ZR1 features a dynamic design that includes an orange package with a stunning Sebring Orange Tintcoat exterior paint job, orange brake calipers, orange striping and orange accents and stitching on the interior. Unique bronze aluminum trim gives a distinct look and feeling of sophistication to the interior, where the standard leather-trimmed seats and available heated and cooled seats provide a level of comfort not available on most sports cars. A Bose premium audio system lets you crank up the tunes when you want to hear something than the throaty rumble of the exhaust system. You’ll also love the performance data recorder that lets you keep an ongoing log of your best track times as you put the new ZR1 through its paces in a safe atmosphere. Remember to check in next spring at Chapman Chevrolet for a test drive and opportunity to take the new Corvette ZR1 home.
