Living in New York City is obviously amazing, but there are some things that you inevitably miss out on. For most people, driving is one of them. And of course, the lack of nature and outdoor space can be tough at times. Luckily, we had the opportunity to combine the two on a quick daytime escape from the city.
Living in the city, you can sometimes miss out on some of the classic holiday traditions, so partaking in day trip to cut down our own Christmas trees with Chevy was a refreshing getaway! In order to check out all of the features of the new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado, we took it on a spin up to Dixiedale Farm nearby in Chatham, New Jersey. Here’s what we loved:
- Space! For a truck, this car had so much interior space that it comfortably fit my friends and me, with plenty of room to spare.
- Tech! The Silverado has 4G LTE Wifi, as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This made it super easy to use, without having to learn a whole new car system. I loved using the Apple CarPlay to navigate, play my favorite music, and I could easily have my text messages read aloud and reply completely hands-free.
- Style! For such a big truck, the finishing touches on the interior looked expensive and classy. There were numerous areas to store your phone, a drink, or maps, making it very convenient.
- Vision! Maneuvering such a big car can be tricky, especially if you’re not used to it, but Chevrolet makes it easy with surround vision. This feature creates a virtual bird’s-eye view of the areas surrounding your car, allowing you to easily fit into small spaces or hitch a trailer to the back.
Once we chopped down our trees, it was easy to tie them down in the bed of the truck. It not only has a huge amount of space, but has a high-strength steel floor, allowing it to withstand plenty of weight and pressure. It also has 12 fixed tie-downs and 9 moveable tie points to increase strength and flexibility. From there, it was easy to drive back into the city, unload and put up our trees! It was a much more special pre-Christmas activity and way better than shopping for your tree from your sidewalk bodega.
