But, it was even better than that, because I had the opportunity to experience the Kelley Blue Book operations, their great staff, and learn a lot of information that I know will continue to inform my blog posts for many years into the future. You could say that I’m now even more appreciative of what they have to offer, and what they really do for us, as we search for new and used cars — to buy and sell.
It’s also always a unique and memorable pleasure to have any opportunity to hang out with fellow dad bloggers and the Life of Dad crew — so it was an great experience, the stuff those really corny movies are made of. I’m thankful for the experience.
On our adventure, I was joined by these fine fellows:
- Andrew Bennett (Benspark)
- Brent Almond (Designer Daddy)
- Chris Lewis (DadofDivas)
- Chris Routly (Daddy Doctrines)
- Colby Shipwas (Days of a Domestic Dad)
- Eric Bennion (Diary Dad)
- James Zahn (The Rockfather)
- John Willey (Daddy’s In Charge)
- Mike Julianelle (Dad and Buried)
- Nik Concretin (DadLabs)
So, let’s get to the guts of the trip.
Why Kelley Blue Book?
Growing up, I think we’ve all looked to Kelley Blue Book as the recognized source for the most accurate and timely information on cars. With more than 20 million unique visitors every month, kbb.com is the go-to resource we still rely on.
Yes, Kelley Blue Book is the most-trusted resource, but they don’t rest on their laurels — they continue to improve their brand, editorial offerings and ever-growing resources. More than ever, kbb.com is digging deeper to continue to offer expert reviews, recommendations and pricing guides for cars.
What does that mean for you and me?
Top 5 Dad Cars
Based on the key determining factors, we test-drove the 5 Best:
While each of the models had pros and cons; and I don’t think any of us ran away from the driving experience screaming… I found that the Chevrolet Tahoe most closely matched what my family needs in a vehicle. Also, if we’re really looking for a winner as a “Dad’s Car (or Truck)”, The Chevrolet Tahoe really is the “One”.
So, now, I’m “new-car smart” — and you can be too!
