Infographic: How Many Pumpkins Can You Fit in a Chevy SUV?
During the autumn season, some of the most common, yet cumbersome cargo you can carry are pumpkins. If you’ve got an SUV or crossover, transporting these gourds becomes a whole lot simpler.
But, have you ever wondered exactly how many pumpkins your utility vehicle can carry? If this has been a question that has haunted your thoughts this fall, then worry not, for the GM Parts Online has the answer. Even better, they have illustrated precisely how many pumpkins several Chevy models can carry through an entertaining infographic.
\For the purposes of this pumpkin-themed infographic, GM Parts Online, along with Spork Marketing, its partner on the project, did a little bit of math in order to set a standard pumpkin size. According to their research, the average Jack-O-Lantern pumpkin was 9-10 inches tall, 7-10 inches in diameter, and weighed around 14 pounds.
Furthermore, a standard bin of these pumpkins could hold about 85 separate gourds. This worked out to an average of 2.1 pumpkins per cubic foot.
Next, the online GM parts provider calculated how many pumpkins each Chevrolet Utility vehicle could hold with all of their seats up. The results can be viewed in the infographic below:
As you can see, the Chevrolet Suburban was able to hold the most pumpkins, coming in at a total of 83 pumpkins. This is unsurprising, as the Suburban is easily the largest SUV in Chevy’s lineup.
What is surprising, however, is the fact that the Chevrolet Trax can hold more pumpkins than the Tahoe. While the Trax holds a total of 39 pumpkins with its 18.7 cubic ft. of cargo space, the Tahoe could only hold a calculated 32 pumpkins, though more could be stored if the third row were folded down.
The new Equinox came in second place, with a total of 63 pumpkins stored behind its third row. Meanwhile, the Chevrolet Traverse was found hold a total of 48 pumpkins.
So, the next time your planning a trip to the pumpkin patch, consider just how many gourds you can store in your respective Chevy utility model.
