With so many vehicles to choose from in 2020, it can feel a bit overwhelming at times trying to find your next family hauler to buy. That is why the Good Housekeeping Institute along with Car and Driver created a list of The Best New Family Cars of 2020. The 2020 Chevrolet Blazer made the list as the Best Midsize SUV (two rows).
To make the list, each vehicle needed to perform well in
terms of value, technology, safety, design and handling. The vehicles were
closely evaluated and tested on city streets, test tracks and highways to
determine if they are worthwhile for families.
The experts at the Good Housekeeping Institute appreciated
the stylish look of the 2020 Chevrolet Blazer and its responsive handling. The
midsize SUV comes standard with the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System, which
keeps you connected with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auro™.
The impressive interior of the Blazer can seat up to five
passengers. Plus, it has plenty of room for your children’s backpacks and
sports gear. You can fit items in the 30.5 cubic feet of cargo volume or fold
down the rear row to utilize 64.2 cubic feet of cargo volume.

Declutter your car
Remove all the cargo from your car, separating the trash from
the items you want to keep. Once all your storage compartments are empty, you
can clean them and then neatly store your necessities in them.
Wipe down the

wheel with a damp cloth. Be careful around electronics and remember to dry off
the cabin afterward. You can also wipe down the windows and mirrors with a
window cleaner and a towel.
Wash and wax
Give the outside of the car a thorough washing to remove dirt
and salt build-up, and then apply a good coat of wax to protect the finish. The
wheels take a lot of abuse over the winter, so be sure to remove and wash the
hubcaps as well.

The announcement that the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray would adopt a mid-engine architecture was beyond exciting for car enthusiasts and collectors. That excitement reached new heights at the Barrett-Jackson car auction that took place in Scottsdale, Arizona, where the first-ever mid-engine Corvette to leave the production line was purchased for a staggering $3 million.
The proud owner of the all-new sports car is Rick Hendrick, a former NASCAR driver, current NASCAR team owner and avid car collector. In addition to leaving the auction house with a piece of history, the hefty sum he put down will go to a phenomenal cause. The money General Motors collected in exchange for the Corvette will go to the Detroit Children’s Fund, a non-profit that works to better the quality of Detroit’s schools.
The auction house previously sold a 1967 L88 Corvette Coupe
for a total of $3.85 million in 2014. Even though the classic 1967 model
managed to edge out the revolutionary 2020 model, it’s still impressive that the
newest iteration of the Corvette Stingray was sold for $3 million, showing that
the redesigned model has garnered noteworthy attention for its style and power.
If the auction is any indication, the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will be a popular option once it reaches dealerships. If you want to try your hand at the all-new model when it finally is released or want to check out the 2019 model, visit us here at Bud Weiser Motors.
