We live in Austin, Texas and there are tons of opportunities to take a drive to a near by city for quick Day Trip. I actually have taken a few and I write about them over at TexasDadBlog.com.
My only gripe is that my current vehicle is not 4G LTE Wi-Fi enabled, first world problem am I right?
Why is that my only gripe you ask? Well when I was at Disney World last month, I was able to drive a few Chevrolet Vehicles that offered 4G LTE Wi-Fi. I field tested a 2016 Chevrolet Camaro, 2016 Colorado Z71, and a 2016 Silverado High Country Edition. Each came with OnStar’s 4G LTE HotSpot which is broadcasted while the vehicle is on and is able to connect up to 7 devices! WOW! The possibilities!
Fellow Traveling Dad Raphael Ocampo wrote a piece title 5 Ways In-Car Wi-Fi Will Improve Your Life, which features how the in-car Wi-Fi will save improve your life while traveling and I just have to say, YES!
Since my family and I like taking day trips and traveling in our vehicle, the 4G Wi-Fi will come in extremely handy! When we travel, we always travel with our tech toys and most of them need Wi-Fi and some times our phones hot spot can be unreliable and we cannot connect as many devices as we would like.
While driving the 2016 Chevy Colorado Z71 I was thinking to myself, this truck would be perfect for our family travels in Texas. I was thinking of a few reasons why we need this truck and came up with my Top 5 reasons.
Top 5 Reasons I Want a 2016 Chevy Colorado Z71 for our family travel.
- Its a truck – You know us Texans and our Trucks!
- It has Wi-Fi – nothing like having the kids stream YouTube
- It has enough room in the back – It appeared to have enough room in the back seat for our 3 car seats.
- It gets good gas Mileage – The Duramax Diesel option gets 31 MPG! For a truck I say that is phenomenal!
- The Z71 Package – A trip to the coast is essential during summer and there is nothing like driving the coast line and not getting stuck. With the 4wd and Z71 package I am sure I won’t get stuck in the sand.
