2019 Chevy Suburban RST Performance Package finally adds the big engine
When Chevy introduced the RST trim level on the Tahoe and Suburban full-size SUVs, the Suburban was a little left-out when it came to the good stuff. Specifically, it wasn't available with the 6.2-liter V8 that could be added to the Tahoe RST. But that's been fixed this year with the 2019 Chevy Suburban RST Performance Package.
The ISDA will be bringing a full review of the 2019 Suburban and its handling characteristics.
FANCY NEW SUSPENSION COULD MAKE CAR RIDES A LOT SMOOTHER
ClearMotion, a Boston-based MIT spinoff company, is developing what it’s calling a proactive suspension system, which goes a step further than the active suspension found on high-end cars. Those systems use hydraulics or electromagnetic fluids to soften or tauten the ride. ClearMotion uses small actuators that lift the wheel clean over bumps, describing other systems as playing defense, whereas it plays offense.
That code works sort of like noise-canceling headphones, canceling out holes and bumps with a movement in the opposite direction: Accelerometers at each wheel sense an impact, then software triggers an electric motor to pump in hydraulic fluid to push or pull the wheel up or down.
In Business of Protection Tips
Social media is a driving force when used effectively for all types of business including security and executive protection services. You’ve identified your goals, found your market, you are sharing and creating valuable content for potential customers, marketing your products and services. You’re interacting with comments and monitoring what is being said about the industry and your business. All of this takes time, money and energy.
Do those likes and comments translate to new business? If so, how much business? Enough to live on or support your family? If not? Why not?
When was the last time you took a hard look at your efforts on social media and assess what is and is not working to help grow your security business?
Hard look means looking past vanity metrics such as likes, and start looking at reach, engagement, and shares with tools that are freely available.
