The Chevrolet Equinox is getting some exciting updates for the 2021 model year. These updates include fresh styling, a new trim level, and more available safety features. With these updates, the Equinox gets even better and more versatile.
The first thing you might notice about the 2021 Chevrolet
Equinox is the new front and rear fascia design. The sharp, new grille gives
the Equinox a more aggressive design. For an even sportier look, you can choose
the new RS trim with a gloss black grille, 19-inch Dark Android wheels, black
side rails, black badging, and black bowties. The styling continues inside with
red accent stitching on the black upholstery.
Standard safety features on the 2021 Equinox will include
Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking, Forward Collision Alert,
IntelliBeam® Headlamps, a Rear Vision Camera, a Following Distance Indicator,
and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning. You will be able to add even
more safety with available options like Automatic Parking Assist, a HD Surround
Vision Camera, and Front and Rear Park Assist.
There will be two engine options to choose from. The base
engine is a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 170 horsepower and 203
lb-ft of torque. You can get more power from the available 2.0-liter
turbocharged engine rated at 252 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.

The impressive array of camera trailering tech is a primary
reason these models earned accolades. Both trucks have the most views possible,
a total of 15, thanks to eight cameras. Surround View enables you to see the
bed, the truck sides, inside the trailer, and the truck’s surroundings.
Transparent View is another feature that gave the Sierra HD
and Silverado HD an edge on the competition. It’s the first system of its kind.
This tech relies on multiple cameras from the back of the trailer and the truck
to give you a full view of what’s behind the trailer, so that the trailer
appears invisible. It provides increased safety and convenience for a variety
of trailering tasks.
The Sierra HD and Silverado HD also have easy-to-use
infotainment systems, wireless charging, and a suite of modern driving
assistance programs. This translates to a connected driving experience so you
can work and play en route to your destination.
ALG has hosted the Technology Innovation Awards only twice, and experts say this year’s winners have set the bar high for the industry. Celebrate these two winning GM trucks for yourself when you stop by Ken Nelson Chevrolet to test-drive them.

It’s easy to lose focus with the gift-buying craze of the
holidays. But this year, gather the family together and spend some time giving
back instead of accumulating presents. Not only will you be helping your
neighbors, but you’ll have a more fulfilling Christmas. Here are just five ways
to give back this holiday season.
Kids who have to stay in the hospital over Christmas enjoy
getting a bit of mail. Visit Hugs and Hope or Send Kids the World to find
names, pictures, and addresses of sick children who could use a handmade card.
Don’t stop there. Residents of veteran’s or nursing homes would appreciate
these messages too.
Support the Troops
You can easily send holiday care packages to overseas
soldiers with one of the many Adopt a Solider programs. It makes a big impact
on the troops who can’t come home for Christmas and teaches your kids about
their noble sacrifice of duty.
Sponsor a Family
Whether you pick a tag off of a local “Giving Tree” or
participate in the Box Project, your family can help a struggling family have a
Christmas to remember. It’s an easy way to keep your focus on others in the
business of the season.
Gifts that Give
Instead of giving a gift to a family member, why not gift
someone else in their name? St. Jude, for example, throws Christmas parties for
the kids from donated funds. Knowing that there’s a hospital full of kids partying
is a heartfelt present for any recipient. Or send aid overseas. Samaritan’s
Purse has a gift catalog where you can donate money for education, medical, and

Buy a homeless person’s meal. Visit the elderly at a retirement home. Pay for a
tree for a low income family. Donate old toys to the local toy drive. Bring
cookies to the fire department. You can even leave change in a vending machine
or pay off the late fees for someone at a library.
Car tires can be one of the more expensive maintenance items you have to deal with when owning a car, so it’s important you purchase the right kind the first time you do so. This guide to buying new tires will ensure you’re prepared when the expenditure comes up.
Choose the Right Tire
Before you purchase your tires, it’s important you
understand what type you need. There are a few points to consider when doing
so. Take a look at your lifestyle, along with your driving habits and location.
You also need to look at your vehicle’s minimum requirements, which can be
found in your owner’s manual. There are different types of tires to choose
from, ranging from off-road options to those that are performance ready. If
you’re in doubt about the type of tires you should purchase next, Ken Nelson is
here to help you find the right option for your needs.
Pick the Right Seasonal Type
Along with finding the right tire for your driving habits,
it’s also important to consider the season you will be driving in. What are the
road conditions frequently like? For instance, in
Kansas City, you don’t want to mess around with our winters.
From snow to ice and everything in between, your tires will take a beating, and
all-season ones might not provide you with the traction you need. That’s why
you should consider getting winter tires if you live here, which Ken Nelson is
happy to provide for you. Picking the right seasonal tire can help you get the
grip and traction you need throughout the year.
Contact us here at Ken Nelson Chevrolet if you have any tire-related questions. You can also schedule a service appointment to install new tires or repair a leaky one.
