Chevy's Extreme Pothole Testing

Chevy's Extreme Pothole Testing
BAY CITY, Mich.– It's been a wicked winter, and while it doesn't even feel like it's over yet, the aftermath is apparent–in the form of extreme potholes. So in order to avoid serious whiplash as well as damage to your tires, wheels, and suspension components, it's best to avoid potholes. But with the current road conditions, that's pretty much impossible, agreed? The good news is that Chevy is there to help us out with vehicles that a built tough thanks to extreme pothole testing at GM's Milford Proving Ground!

To develop vehicles that were tougher than the chassis-rattling potholes we experience in Michigan, GM engineers began extreme pothole testing Chevrolet vehicles at General Motors Milford Proving Ground. Engineers are able to evaluate and tune vehicle suspension to minimize passenger discomfort by manufacturing a wide variety of road surface conditions including some seriously intense potholes. Over the past 40 years, the brand has been collecting data from these tests in order to develop tougher vehicles that can handle the pothole-filled roadways.

When your vehicle hits a pothole, the main problem is that the load is not transferred properly. But through the extensive testing, Chevrolet has been able to reduce the vibrations from sudden, harsh impacts with robust body structures. And with suspensions that can be tuned more precisely, customers enjoy a smoother, more controlled ride. Not to mention, tires and wheels take a beating from potholes too so GM has designed its tires and wheels to be stronger and better able to withstand impact.

First and foremost with our current deteriorating road conditions, we want you to stay safe so make sure to take it slow and keep your eyes on the road. If you're looking for further protection against your bumpy commute, we can help you find it in a new Chevrolet car or truck! Hank Graff Chevy is located at 3636 Wilder Road, Bay City, MI 48706.
