One trick I do to help cool the interior of a SUV is to pop open the rear hatch with the key FOB from as far away as possible within eye sight. This lets out a large amount of hot air stuck in the vehicle. Just shut as you walk up to the vehicle.

Yesterday in Aspen area - mid 90s. Engine on, windows down, Full Auto, spin to Lo, drive off, windows up after 30 seconds rolling, spin to 70 … usually just leave three temps linked.

Works great!

I like to do this too, it's a great unexpected bonus of the PRG.

Full Auto mode will use recirc as needed to do the most efficient cooling job. But there's a big volume of air in there to cool. Be sure the rear AC is engaged, too, if equipped. I keep that synced in my Touring.
After the Ascent sitting all day in the hot sun - 90 degrees outside (windshield shade in place), I remote started my Ascent and after a three to five minute walk to the vehicle, my vehicle was nice and cool.

Got love it.:)

Yes, on the particularly hot and cold days, remote start is a blessing. I don't use it often as I don't want to burn the fuel, but when it's the right call..."click".... :D
