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.”
The Chevrolet Suburban is going outdoorsy with its newest tailgating innovation. The furniture company, Workshop, which specializes in building furniture out of recycled wood, has built table and bench tailgating add-ons to be implemented into the Premium Outdoors edition of the Suburban. All of the wood used for the tables has come from purposefully deconstructed Detroit homes.
As the industry’s original SUV, the Suburban has historical roots in Detroit, and with its 80th anniversary passing, it has a legacy to preserve alongside its new wooden accessories. It’s the longest running nameplate in the whole industry, and it plans on staying that way for a long time.
“Using salvaged materials like this is more than simply recycling and keeping valuable materials out of a landfill – it’s about preserving something tangible from Detroit’s history,” said James Willer of Workshop. “That house may no longer exist, but a piece of its legacy lives on.”
Wiesner of Huntsville will be looking forward to featuring this and other outdoorsy versions of the 2015 Suburban. For more information on this car and its various editions, feel free to contact us!
