Tis the season for Christmas Trees, merry making and all the jolly that signals the start of this festive season. We had the pleasure of venturing out in the 2022 Chevy Tahoe Premier to explore for this holiday season.
ABOUT THE CHEVY TAHOE
Thanks to the Chevy Team for the loan of the vehicle and to Aaron Milner for capturing images for this story.
Simply, the 2022 is full-size, 7-seater, gas-powered SUV from Chevy. It is 122.9 cubic feet of space and three rows of luxury that comes fully equipped with built-in Google Assist that lets you get where you want to go with ease and stay connected via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.
Mid-vehicle captain’s chairs mean that everyone has their own space, and you can easily get into the third row. There’s a very helpful heads-up display, and a clear 12.3-inch infotainment screen that is intuitively designed so that there is no hunt-and-find the icon experience. You can just plug-in and go, which I adore as a busy mom that is pretty much everywhere. Easy-to-find LATCH anchors mean my youngest can safely sit in whichever row that he wants and takes one more thing off my plate. Your rear passengers will adore the rear entertainment consoles, be sure to bring your cords with you. Add that to the updated suspension, front and rear park assist, surround view that accesses and provides 13 camera views to let you see all around the vehicle, it’s a definite winner for large families, people with lots of gear to haul or those that enjoy the luxury of space and riding up high.
Chevy Holiday Tree Chopping Tips
Dallas so many beautiful ways to explore the sites and see the lights all festive. That being said, if you are tree-chopping this year, scroll down for some helpful tips on staying warm, keeping safe and bring your tree home.
- Be prepared: Always make sure to measure the space in your home and car so you know exactly what size tree will fit as you pick one out. Don’t forget to leave enough room for the tree topper!
- Stay warm: Bundle up, wear boots and bring a pair of gloves to make sure you stay warm when chopping down your tree. Be sure to bring something to kneel on while you cut your tree down.
- Choose Wisely: Most tree farms have a lot of options to choose from, so take your time and inspect the trees before you pick one out. The National Christmas Tree Association recommends testing out the branches to make sure the tree isn’t too dry or unhealthy.
- Chop Chop: Cut your tree low to the ground and straight across. Have a buddy pull the tree slightly away from the side you’re cutting to prevent the saw from binding and make it easier to cut all the way through.
- Use Cross-Rails: If available, properly installed cross rails on the roof of your vehicle are the preferred way to transport the tree home. Creating a hitching post with the roof rails makes it easier to tie the tree down.
- Use netting: All trees should be put into netting or a sleeve for easy transport.
- Stump first: With the tree in its proper sleeve, position the tree stump-end towards the front of your vehicle. It’s the most aerodynamic way to transport your tree home.
- Tie it down tight: Lay your tree directly overtop the cross rails, loop twine over and around, and repeat to cinch with a “figure-8” motion. This will help protect the tree from moving around while you drive.
- Stabilize the tree: You can always use more twine and crisscross across the street for extra support if you need it.
- Don’t forget to water your tree: Make sure you put your tree into water immediately when you get home and place it away from heat sources like fireplaces or radiators that can dry it out. The tree will drink up a lot of water the first couple of days so make sure to constantly check on the water level throughout the season. Help keep it alive and healthy all holiday season long!
