WHAT IS AN OFF-ROAD VEHICLE?

March 12th, 2019 by

Winter is winding down, and that means off-roading season is fast approaching. Is your vehicle ready for the great outdoors? Here at Barton Chevrolet, our fantastic staff can help you outfit your vehicle for off-roading adventures, be they extreme or casual.

The first step is to have a vehicle that is capable of off-roading. For that, you’ll want to take a look at our Chevrolet SUVs and trucks near Pauling, NY. They are designed to be more durable and capable than a sedan when considering 4WD availability and greater ground clearance.

There are a several main components that ensure a vehicle to excel in rough conditions, such as

• Wheel articulation
• Low end torque
• Locking differentials
• Visibility
• Tow points
• Approach, departure, breakover angles

However, there are adjustments you can make to improve both the vehicle’s durability and capability. Take, for instance, the Chevy Traverse. It comes standard with all-season tires, which are ideal in most types of adverse conditions-but on a paved road. In this case, you would want to purchase off-road tires. They feature a deeper tread and wider grooves. We also recommend skid plates to better protect your vehicle.
