6 Essential Cars and Trucks for Your Great Summer Road Trip

Essential Cars & Trucks for an Incredible Summer Getaway

Everyone is familiar with the phrase, “it’s not the destination, it’s the journey.”  And fundamental to the journey is the vessel it occurs in—your vehicle.  With that in mind, we have gathered together 6 essential vehicles for any road trip.  Whether you are embarking on a journey of self-discovery, taking a long-planned trip with that special someone (no, not your car!…ok maybe your car), getting away from your college dorm with your best friends, or on the classic family summer vacation, we’ve picked a vehicle for you.

Corvette Stingray: You, The Road, & an Unforgettable Journey

Who says you can’t get away with that special someone—Yourself.  (Ok, maybe you want to bring your best friend or significant other along for the ride).

The Stingray is so fast, you might zoom through your trip before you even realize it.  But because this car is so speedy, you probably have time for a second trip.  So why not take this one in red?

Dealer Insider’s Tip: While it’s obvious that this car loves wide stretches of open road, it also has a tenacious grip.  Take it through some twists and turns!

Chevrolet Silverado for Daring Adventures

With plenty of room for your luggage and fellow passengers this is the perfect truck for a get-out-of-the-city-and-get-back-to-nature-adventure.  If your trip is going to involve a lot of off-roading and camping, the Silverado is a no-brainer.

Adventure to must-see natural wonders like Banff, our oldest national park in the beautiful Rocky Mountains.  Or you could visit Jasper National Park, the largest national park in the Rockies.

Wherever you go in the Chevrolet Silverado High Country, you’re going to be in high style.

Dealer Insider’s TipAttach a giant suitcase to the back.  Or a trailer.

GMC Acadia for your Family Excursion

Pack up your family and pack up your luggage.  You’ll notice you still have plenty of room for the long enjoyable trip in the GMC Acadia.  So pack up the family pet too!

Dealer Insider’s Tip: Parents will find the rear-seat DVD to be a great way to maintain sanity.  Your children will have the best of both worlds: when they are done admiring the scenery of the road, instead of getting bored they can watch their favorite movies.

The Chevy Cruze

Going for a long drive?  If it’s just you and a few friends going to your favorite vacation spot this is the car that’s going to save you money.  The Chevy Cruze is all about fuel efficiency, and fun.

Dealer Insider’s Tip: No need to keep your eye on fuel gage.You and your fellow travelers will be able to cover great distances, so turn the music up and enjoy the ride.

Chevy Trax: Escape from the Dorm!

Grab a few of your college friends and hit the road.  Not all road trips have to lead you to the countryside; in fact, some great trips send you right to the heart of the city.  If your next road trip is taking you on an urban adventure, explore your favorite city in the Chevrolet Trax. If you’re already familiar with Toronto, The Trax would be great at zipping through Ottawa.


Buick Enclave

With so many roads to explore, fuel efficiency is extremely important for any road trip.  But so is space.  Luckily for you and your adventurous companions, the Enclave has both.
