Chevy Announces New Unlimited OnStar 4G LTE Plan

In June of 2014, Chevrolet launched its built-in OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi technology. Since then, customers have been rapidly increasing their usage of the service. And, the biggest jump was in the last six months of 2016. In fact, in that time, Chevy owners used nearly as much data as they had in the previous two years.

Because of this huge jump in popularity and usage, Chevrolet has announced a new unlimited OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi plan. This plan will only cost $20 per month, making it an affordable choice for many families. There are also other plans for less frequent users, including data passes of 250MB per day for $5 and 20GB over 12 months for $150.

Alan Batey, president of GM North America and global head of Chevrolet, said, “With the most affordable unlimited 4G LTE data plan in the auto industry, the widest availability of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and new connected services like OnStar AtYourService, our momentum can only grow.”

If you’ve been searching for a better way to stay connected while on the go, come check out the Chevrolet lineup today at Wiesner of Huntsville. OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi is available across the Chevy lineup, from the compact Sonic to the full-size Silverado 2500HD.

Two Beloved SUVs Awarded Top Safety Ratings

Top-Safety-Pick+

When it comes to Chevrolet and GMC, most of us down here in Texas first think of the Silverado or the Sierra (we LOVE our trucks!). However, today, we want to stop and honor two other award-winning GM vehicles for their outstanding safety features—the all-new 2014 Chevrolet Equinox and the 2014 GMC Terrain. Both SUVs earned 2014 Top Safety Pick+ awards from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the only midsize SUVs of nine tested to earn Good ratings in the small overlap front crash test. Impressive, huh?

The only two midsize SUVs to land Top Safety Pick+ awards being GM models speaks highly of their safety abilities and features. Both the Equinox and Terrain achieved Good ratings (the highest IIHS rating possible) in all five crash tests, including the front crash test. Each SUV features forward collision alert technology, six standard airbags, and a rear vision camera. You’ll have that peace-of-mind driving your family from destination to destination in the Chevy Equinox or GMC Terrain.

Be sure to check out or test drive one (or both) of these new, award-winning SUVs today at Wiesner of Huntsville! You won’t be disappointed.
