Technology is a big part of modern life. Most of us will use technology in one way or another every single day-and, if your day includes driving, you are using it there, too, even without touching your smartphone.

Today's cars use technology in a variety of ways. From connecting you to the people and things you love to promoting better driving skills to making your car run more efficiently and even to keeping you and your passengers safe on the road. In fact, with all of Chevrolet's innovations, it has become the most-awarded car company in the United States.    

Under the hood, Chevrolet cars, trucks, and SUVs come equipped with engines that have not only advanced engineering, but advanced technology, too. In the Chevrolet Malibu, buyers can opt for a turbocharged 1.5-liter ECOTEC® engine that comes with Variable Valve Timing, Direct Injection, and stop/start technology.
Every Chevrolet model has an available MyLink system that helps integrate technology into your daily ride. With a paired, compatible smartphone, you can make and receive phone calls, listen to your favorite music, get text message alerts, and save your contacts-and, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, you can even use select apps on the MyLink touchscreen, like you would your phone.
Also, passengers will be able to stay connected on the go with the available OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi. This allows up to seven devices to connect at once so passengers can watch videos, catch up on social media, play online games, send emails, and more.  
Perhaps one of the most important ways Chevrolet uses technology in its lineup is for safety. Chevrolet's safety technology is there to protect you before, during, and after an accident, and is what Chevrolet calls its "prevent, protect, respond" philosophy.

Some of the features that help prevent an accident from happening in the first place include Lane Keep Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Forward Collision Alert, and Forward Automatic Braking. In addition, nearly every Chevrolet model comes standard with Teen Driver technology. This feature allows parents to set certain driving parameters to help teens learn better driving habits-this includes things like muting the radio until seatbelts are buckled, setting speed alerts, and even including an in-vehicle report card.

When an accident does happen, your Chevrolet is there to help keep you safe. Every Chevy comes standard with a suite of advanced airbags-up to 10 on select vehicles (the number will vary depending on the model). In addition, every model is engineered using high-strength steel and crumple zones to help absorb and redirect the crash energy away from passengers.

Then, to help keep the smallest passengers safe, every Chevrolet comes standard with the LATCH (Lower Anchors and Top Tethers for Children) system.

Finally, after an accident, Chevy drivers have the benefit of the OnStar system with built-in Automatic Crash Response. An OnStar advisor will automatically be connected to your vehicle to ask if you need help, and even if you can't respond, the advisor can use your vehicle's GPS location to contact emergency responders to get you the help that you need.
Here at LaSorsa Chevrolet Buick, we understand the importance of great technology and how it can help make your ride more enjoyable, more efficient, and, best of all, safer. To see some of these Chevy innovations for yourself, stop by and take one or more of our Chevrolet vehicles out for a test drive.
