Spring has sprung, and March winds have passed out of our Bel Air neighborhood, giving way to the April showers that herald the blooms of May. And, if you’re like our Chevy enthusiasts, then we’ll bet your bucket list of summer excursions has grown along with them, too — as have your prospects for that new car, truck, or SUV to help make it all happen. Luckily, you’ll be pleased to know that your options abound here at here at Bob Bell Chevrolet of Bel Air, as there’s a new Chevrolet for every kind of summer driving imaginable.

Planning the road trip down the Maryland coast to define all long-distance road trips? Check out the new Chevy Bolt EV. Its latest 2018 build boasts a stellar cruising range of up to 238 miles on a single charge, according to EPA estimates. Plus, if you’re planning to attraction-hop, the compact car’s onboard 7.2-kW charger makes possible quick charging overnight from a 240-volt outlet, and what’s more, you can store enough energy for another 50-mile romp or so in as little as two hours, making it easier than ever to take in all the sights along your route. You can even recuperate kinetic energy for use thanks to a Regen-on-Demand system.
If you’re looking for a high-octane pleasure cruise in the sun, look no further than the new Chevrolet Camaro. Its four available engines, spanning the gamut from a turbocharged 275-horsepower variant to a powerhouse 6.2-liter supercharged V8, represent a standard set for muscle cars that the latest sports coupe has upheld for decades. Factor in selectable driving modes like Sport, Tour, and Track, as well as an optional Launch Control and Enhanced Magnetic Ride Control and available Brembo performance brakes, and you’ll find there’s no highway in, through, or around Bel Air you can’t command. Looking for an extra thrill? You can even log video of your escapades with metrics for later review via an available Performance Data Recorder.

Of course, there are always possibilities for a summer getaway into nature, and for that, the new Chevy Equinox compact SUV steps up, with all the amenities for the outing of a modern crossover. For one, a restyled interior home to premium cloth or perforated leather seating options, coming together for agreeable days under an available power panoramic sunroof and sunshade. Secondly, up to 63.5 cubic feet of space for cargo with 60/40 split-folding rear seating collapsed, accessible with ease at your campsite via an available hands-free gesture liftgate. What’s more, 7- and 8-inch Chevrolet MyLink touchscreen infotainment options, with the point-A-to-Adventure convenience of available navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support for smartphone connection, and an optionally built-in OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot to remain connected to civilization when you need it. You can manage many functions remotely, like door locks and unlocks, engine starts, destination programming, and more, from your mobile device using the myChevrolet Mobile app.

But perhaps you’re planning to tow a whole extended vacation worth off-grid. The new Chevrolet Silverado 1500 can help do the job, letting you hitch up to 12,500 pounds behind when properly equipped with a Max Trailering Package. That’s a couple of dirt bikes, a small camper, or a team of off-road vehicles. Step up to a new Silverado 2500HD, and that advantage becomes up to 14,800 pounds, ideal for a horse trailer, or up to 18,100 pounds, great for a powerboat. If you’re looking for raw power, go with a new Silverado 3500HD. With it, and the proper hardware, you can lug anywhere from 14,600 to up to 23,300 pounds, plenty of capacity for a fifth-wheel camper.

Eager to get planning on some serious summer fun? Stop by and visit our showroom here at 1230 Belair Road, and our knowledgeable team of Chevy enthusiasts will be delighted to talk shop on the new Chevrolet vehicle that’s right for your next trip. We’re looking forward to hearing all about it!
