Chevrolet Tahoes and Suburbans have become internet hot spots for owners, using three-and-a-half times more data than a year ago, the carmaker reported.
Vehicle owners are able to stream movies, send emails, and play online games.
The OnStar 4G LTE-enabled SUVs are made at the General Motors Assembly Plant in Arlington at a rate of one vehicle per minute, 24 hours a day six days a week.
Dallas Innovates recently got a tour of the GM plant, which is being expanded to meet increased demand.
Looking across the entire Chevrolet line, vehicle owners used 4.2 million gigabytes of data in 2016 — 200 percent more than in 2015.
The 4G LTE connection comes standard on all new Chevrolet models, but there is a monthly subscription charge.
