2022 Chevy Equinox | Beloit, WI

Planning on heading out of Beloit for a family adventure this spring? Before you pack up the crew and get going, you might want to take heed of some common yet easily avoidable mistakes that can derail a road trip.

Take care of business first

If you’re planning on making any extended drives, your first priority should be taking care of vehicle maintenance. Schedule an appointment at Bud Weiser Motors and get the essentials all squared away.

Be prepared

You’re probably going to run down your packing list two or three times before you head out, but make sure you include some other things you might not think of. Travel & Leisure recommends making sure your entertainment and navigation apps are all up to date, investing in things like spare phone chargers and mounts, and bringing snacks and drinks. And don’t forget the first aid kits and roadside emergency kits.

Make sure you have the right vehicle

Are you seriously thinking about taking your growing family out on a road trip in a compact car? Use this opportunity to change your situation with a stylish new or new-to-you Chevrolet SUV. At Bud Weiser Motors, you’ll find a great selection of family-friendly utility vehicles. Each offers modern safety technology, advanced entertainment features, and comfy seating for larger crews.

If you can avoid making these mistakes, your big spring road trip should be a smashing success. Be sure to take time to stop and enjoy the sights — and don’t forget to visit Bud Weiser Motors first for all your vehicle needs.

What to Expect from the Chevrolet Silverado ZRX

2019 Colorado ZR2
2019 Colorado ZR2

The ZR2 version of the Chevrolet Colorado was a great addition to the Chevrolet line of trucks. It imbued the Colorado with the ability to conquer a variety of off-road obstacles, thanks to a slew of new equipment and tuning. Already, the ZR2 has become a favorite version of the Colorado.

Recent rumors have spread that Chevrolet is planning to release a similar version of the Silverado. It will allegedly be named the Chevrolet Silverado ZRX, according to pending trademark records. With that in mind, will we get a Silverado that’s specifically made for traveling on unpaved paths?

According to theories, this iteration of the legendary truck will be ready for off-roading adventures. It will bear many of the same enhancements that the Colorado ZR2 has, like an improved suspension utilizing Multimatic DSSV dampers along with rear and front electronic-locking differentials that increase traction.

The Silverado ZRX would probably contain the same V8 engine that other high-level Silverado models will carry, without receiving any special enhancements. However, there is a chance that Chevrolet could offer a diesel option. 

It will still be many years until you’re able to buy the ZRX version of the Silverado, so in the meantime, check out the other trims of the Silverado that we have at Bud Weiser Motors.
