I’m not a car person but the Chevy Suburban Rocks.

So, I planned a trip with all my closest friends to Orlando, Florida for the yearly Halloween Horror Nights event at Universal Studios (so overdue!) and I needed a car. I put all my contacts together and thought, how can I get a free whip to the O? Oh well, there is an upside to this whole “social media” thing. Luckily my friends over at Team Epiphany were able to put me in contact with Chevrolet and the rest was magic! A car service company arrived in the morning before we departed on the 4 hour (or 3 depending on who’s driving haha) trip to Orlando. Immediately I was intimidated by how big this thing was! Little me in this huge car!? But we did it, and boy was the car ride an interesting one to say the least. Put 8 BIG personalities in a big car and you’ve got a family vacation car ride to remember. I saw it had a DVD player so I grabbed my favorite movies Pineapple Express and Knocked Up from my house and that kept everyone quiet for a while but man, was this car like a dream! It came filled with gas and when we got to Orlando it was just about half full still! The touch screen in the middle console was BOMB, with satellite radio available, and GPS it was just too easy to keep me busy and play around with for a hour on the road.
The ride was super sooth especially for a road trip, it felt like we were on a couch on wheels. It has tons of crazy features I’ve never even seen before like it alerts you via a small shake on your butt when another car gets too close or if your about to skim a wall. It also has wireless charging pad for your cellphone which is AWESOME (new technology rules)! It has two screens in the back so everyone watching the DVD can see per row plus wireless headphones. It had a power outlet charger so my friends were working on their computers while charging up and USB plugs too! Oh man, it also had separate A/C controls for passenger side, driver side, and the back rows?! I mean, I’ve been driving a 2003 Ford Focus so this thing was like new technology to me haha.
The sound was amazing because it was a BOSE sound system, of course. As we rode back we heard the whole The Carter II and Urban Legend albums and that thang was BUMPIN’.
Honestly, I didn’t want to give it back! But all good things eventually come to an end. But not before I took a few pictures to remember the good times!
Definitely super impressed by Chevrolet and now they’ve got me wanting to buy an Impala. Not even joking. Definitely would recommend renting one of these bad boys if your going on a road trip or have a big family, it’s perfect!
BIG thanks to Team Epiphany and Chevy for the ride!
