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 all-new Chevy Trax was recently presented with a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). This is the highest rating given out by the government organization.
The 2015 Chevy Trax’s safety rating continues Chevy’s winning streak in terms of safety; Chevrolet has more 5-Star-rated vehicles for 2015 than any other automaker in the country. It is also reassuring to see another small SUV earn a top safety rating, as the market is expanding at an incredible rate. In fact, Chevrolet reports that the market for small SUVs like the Trax is expected to grow a whopping 80 percent over the course of the next few years.
Earning the top safety rating is no easy task. The Trax had to undergo front, side, and rollover testing in NHTSA’s New Car Assessment Program. The SUV was also subjected to a side pole impact test, in which the Trax earned another 5 stars.
“The Trax is the perfect example of Chevrolet’s commitment to putting state-of-the-art technology and class-leading safety features where it matters most for the customer,” said Brian Sweeney, the U.S. vice president of Chevrolet.
Among those features and technologies are 10 standard airbags, a standard rearview camera, and available rear park assist. In addition, the Trax is composed of 66 percent high-strength and ultra-high strength steels.
