Guide to using common Chevy technology
Chevy vehicles are becoming more and more technologically advanced every year. Though much of this technology is there for your convenience, you may not know how to use it, and that’s where we can help. With our guide to using common Chevy technology, complete with official Chevy videos, you can make the most of your Chevy.
Chevy keyless entry and remote start
These two features go hand in hand. Remote start is perfect for getting that vehicle warm on a cold day or even cool on a hot day. Start it by pushing your lock button, and then holding your start button for about four seconds. With your key fob in your pocket, you can fully utilize keyless entry and push-button start. You just have to push the button on the door to open your car up, and once inside push the start button and away you go without ever fumbling for your keys.
How to use the hands-free liftgate
More and more Chevy models are equipped with liftgates in back from SUVs and crossovers all the way down to compact hatchbacks. This convenience means you never have to worry about opening the liftgate when your hands are full again.
All you have to do is kick your foot under the rear bumper. You’re not actually kicking the car but showing the bumper-mounted sensor your intentions. From there the Chevy will see what you are trying to do, detect your key fob, and open the liftgate. Afterward, another kick can close the gate too. This makes it perfect for both loading and unloading.

Chevy wireless phone charging
Many new phones are equipped with wireless charging. If you have such a phone then all you have to do is drop your phone in the designated charging pocket or on the designated charging pad, and your phone will start happily charging.
Chevy active noise cancellation
To use active noise cancellation you don’t have to do anything. Your Chevy’s speakers emit a dynamically-tuned sound to counteract and cancel out the sound of your engine. It’s the same technology employed in your noise-canceling headphones, except for your whole car.
