Silverado is Perfect Truck for Spring Camping

2017 Chevrolet Silverado | Red Wing Chevrolet Buick Cadillac | Red Wing, MNNow that the spring weather has finally arrived, outdoor fanatics everywhere are dreaming up their next camping trips. Have you ever turned your vehicle into the ultimate camping tool? This year, try gearing up your truck for spring camping. At Red Wing Chevrolet we have a lot full of Silverados that are perfect for the task.

When you take out your Silverado, you have two great options: sleeping in a tent or sleeping in the bed. If you opt for the traditional tent method, the bed of your Silverado can easily be used to store tubs of food, cooking supplies, bicycles, kayaks, or whatever other gear tickles your fancy. Purchase a canopy ahead of time that you can set up over your bed for the ultimate camping tailgating experience.

If you want to rely only on your Silverado, set up your sleeping area in the spacious bed of the pickup. Devoted truck campers build shelving units and extra storage around their bed space, but this isn’t necessary for a weekend away.

When it’s time to pull up the maps to head home, or to check in with work, the Silverado’s available Wi-Fi hotspot will come in handy. You can also use the Wi-Fi plus the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system to stream music while you gather around the campfire for a perfect, spring evening.

Things to Do in Rochester, Minnesota

If you’re planning to visit soon or just looking for something to do over the weekend, there are plenty of fun things to do in Rochester, whether you’re with your kids, a group of friends, or just yourself.

Summer is a busy time for Rochester because it’s such an outdoors-oriented place. From visiting nature centers to exploring caves, you’ll never run out of things to do. Go biking in one of Rochester’s over a hundred city parks or go fruit picking at Firefly Berries.

If you’d rather go for something indoor, check out Soccer World’s indoor paintball field, or visit one of several area gyms for swimming and rock climbing. Parents with young children will enjoy a visit to Monkey Junction or Pipsqueaks, two local indoor play areas for children six and under, and the Minnesota Children’s Museum of Rochester.

These are all pretty active, but if you’d rather do something more relaxing, visit the Rochester Art Center that features a series of exhibitions with art from local and international artists, or head to the History Center of Olmsted County for a little local history. Wherever your interests lie, you won’t have trouble finding something fun to do in Rochester!

Memorial Day Weekend Sales Event at Red Wing Chevrolet

Memorial Day is upon us so of course we want to have the best sale…ever! Stop out on Monday, we’ll be grilling from 11 – 1 and we’ll be open that day from 9 – 5. Have you driven a Silverado or the new Malibu yet? Stop out and take one for a spin!

While you’re here, we have not one, but two lovely Corvettes showing themselves off at our store. You can find the Z06 on our show floor and our Z51 out winking at the traffic in the front row outside.

Now is also a great time for us to thank all our Veterans, Active and Retired Military personnel. We appreciate all you do, have done and sacrificed for us. We are offering special Military pricing at Red Wing Chevrolet and we salute you!

Have you heard Hanisch Bakery and Coffee Shop was voted to have the best (viewers choice) donuts in the state of Minnesota? During our sale, choose a Weber Grill from Red Wing Ace Hardware or take a gift card worth $150 to Hanisch Bakery instead. Don’t need a grill and you’re watching what you eat? EVERYONE needs clothes so we’ve got the next best option for YOU. With your vehicle purchase (over $6000) you could choose a gift card to our local clothing store, Josephson’s instead. You will find something in your style there!
So stop out this weekend and see us (except for Sunday, no car sales on Sunday’s and just like you, we need the day off to spend with our family). Take a look at the ad and from what I hear, this Memorial Day there will be no rain so we’ll see you for that test drive real soon!

MyLink Keeps Red Wing, MN Area Silverado Drivers Calm, Cool and Connected

MyLink Keeps Red Wing, MN Area Silverado Drivers Calm, Cool and Connected

Red Wing, MN– The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado’s next-generation MyLink gives Red Wing, MN area customers the best of both worlds when it comes to infotainment. MyLink provides easy, intuitive operation of basic functions, yet it is also highly customizable and capable of linking up to 10 devices such as smartphones, SD cards and MP3 players, giving customers more ways to stay connected.

Silverado’s MyLink is one of the first to use of natural language voice recognition technology, which enables customers to safely place calls, enter destinations, browse media, play music and control other functions simply by telling the vehicle what to do. There are no key phrases to remember and no need to look at a screen. MyLink also can be operated via a touch screen, with large, clearly labeled knobs, or through integrated steering wheel controls.

The system can store up to 60 favorites including radio stations (AM/FM/XM), contacts, destinations, music and other media – a convenient feature for those who travel to the same destination regularly and want to save locations.

The graphic treatment of the MyLink screen and the Driver Information Center in the instrument cluster can be customized to one of four distinct personalities, depending on who’s behind the wheel and how the Silverado is being used – Main Street (default setting), Contemporary, Edge and Velocity.

One of the most noticeable additions to the new Silverado is the available high-resolution, full-color touch-screen display radio that is seamlessly integrated into the top of the central instrument panel. This vibrant LCD screen is standard on LTZ and available on LT, and it displays a home page resembling a smartphone screen or tablet, with just a few, large buttons and easily recognizable icons to execute commands.

Functionality is highly intuitive and includes the driver’s five most frequently used apps located along the top of the screen. At the bottom of the screen, users can select music, points of interest, addresses, maps for weather or directions, phone numbers or system commands.

“Our Silverado owners need an infotainment system that does not compromise their drive experience,” said Brad Banitt of Red Wing Chevrolet. “With Chevrolet MyLink, they get multimedia personalization that’s easy to use – especially on-the-go.”

Versatile – just like the Silverado
The Silverado’s MyLink system can be as simple or as capable as customers want it to be. It functions as an extension of the owner’s Android, BlackBerry or iPhone. It also supports phones with the Symbian operating system from Nokia and phones with the Windows Mobile operating system from Microsoft.

Once users connect and properly stow their devices, they can access Audio, Phone and Settings to connect their customized music libraries, contacts, videos and photos with the radio using their smartphones, and the vehicle’s Bluetooth or USB.

Designed with customers in mind
Customer clinic data, extensive Human Machine Interface (HMI) input and feedback from prominent customer satisfaction survey companies was used to determine screen colors, font sizes, placement of the buttons and number of items per screen. The result is a system that is both safe and easy to use.

MyLink designers developed four specific graphic appearances designed to appeal to the distinctive personalities of Chevrolet customer groups. They include:

• Main Street – An all-around, crowd pleasing design using primary colors; a typical customer may drive a truck and use it as a high-tech mobile office. This is the system’s default setting.
• Contemporary – Clean, simple interface that’s not overly colorful or busy, geared to busy moms and families.
• Edge – Youth-oriented, dynamic feel with vibrant colors and pop culture-inspired icons.
• Velocity – Sleek, with carbon fiber background appearance and glowing neon, aimed at driving enthusiasts.

Customers simply use the Settings menu to personalize their Silverado.

Additionally, GM has hired connected customer specialists throughout the country to help Red Wing Chevrolet train customers on how to get the most out of their infotainment systems.

A trusted traveling companion: OnStar
OnStar accessibility expands in the 2014 Silverado. Besides the venerable Blue button, customers can access OnStar via the screen display.

The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado is equipped with six months of OnStar’s premium Directions and Connections service (OnStar is optional on the 1WT model). OnStar brings added safety, security and connectivity to these vehicles, including services such as Automatic Crash Response, Stolen Vehicle Assistance, Vehicle Diagnostics and Roadside Assistance.

Most smartphone owners can also download the RemoteLink Mobile App, which allows OnStar subscribers to control and manage certain vehicle functions from their phone. For more information on OnStar’s services, visit onstar.com.
