7 Great New Chevrolets Under $40,000 in 2019

For more than a century, Chevrolet has been associated with quality, performance and value, and that reputation holds up today. Whether you’re looking for an exciting performance car, a practical SUV or a rugged pickup truck, there’s a Chevy out there for your vehicular taste.

Here are seven great new Chevrolets you can get for less than $40,000 in 2019.

2019 Chevrolet Traverse

2019 Chevrolet Traverse

If you need three rows of seats but the Tahoe and the Suburban are bigger and pricier than you’re looking for, the Chevy Traverse is an excellent midsize crossover with room for everybody. This 3-row SUV has a third row of seats that is suitable for children and adults, making the Traverse a compelling minivan alternative. It also has ample cargo space, even with all of the seats folded up, and its ride is smooth. With a budget of $40,000, you could get an all-wheel drive (AWD) Traverse in the base LS trim, or the 4-wheel drive (4WD) LT Cloth model, which adds second-row captain’s chairs, fog lamps, heated power adjustable mirrors and more.

2019 Chevrolet Camaro SS

2019 Chevrolet Camaro SS

The Chevrolet Camaro has an affordable starting price of less than $30,000, but if you have room to spend up to $40,000, we recommend the V8-powered SS model. The Camaro SS comes with not only a 455-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 engine, but also a muscular appearance package with 20-in wheels, Brembo performance brakes, LED headlights, an 8-in infotainment system and much more. The Camaro SS also provides excellent handling to accompany all of that power, plus comfortable, supportive front seats. A head-turning muscle car that’s as fun in a straight line as it is in a corner, the Camaro SS is one of the best performance car values out there. Find a Chevrolet Camaro for sale

2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV

2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV

The Chevrolet Bolt EV wasn’t the first mass-market electric car, but it’s still revolutionary, as it’s an electric vehicle (EV) with a range of more than 200 miles with a price that many drivers can afford, especially after incentives. The starting price of the Bolt is $37,495 but can get much lower with federal, state and local EV incentives, plus any cash allowance promotions that Chevy might be running. On top of its outstanding electric range, the Bolt also provides quick acceleration thanks to its electric powertrain. It also comes with a roomy interior and a generous list of standard equipment, making it a great value in new Chevrolets. Find a Chevrolet Bolt EV for sale

2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

The legendary Chevy Silverado 1500 is all-new for 2019, with a new look and some interesting new options under the hood. For $40,000 or less, you can get a Silverado with the base V6, a 5.3-liter V8 or the new 2.7-liter turbocharged inline four, which is capable and efficient. The nicest Silverado you can get in this price range would be the LT trim, which adds a lot of exterior chrome (especially in the bumpers and mirror caps), 17-in wheels and LED headlights. This Chevy is a tough and capable truck no matter the trim or engine option you choose — but the V8 is hard to resist, considering it isn’t much of a price jump from the V6 or the turbo four. Find a Chevrolet Silverado 1500 for sale

2019 Chevrolet Colorado Z71

2019 Chevrolet Colorado Z71

Looking for a truck that’s a little smaller and more agile than the full-size Silverado? The midsize Chevy Colorado is a great little brother to the Silverado, and its capability and functionality might surprise you. The crew cab is roomy enough to make the Colorado an everyday family vehicle, and the truck’s towing and payload capacity make it quite the workhorse. If you have $40,000 to spend on a Colorado, we recommend the Z71 model with 4WD and the V6 engine. The Z71 model adds an off-road suspension, an automatic-locking rear differential, all-terrain tires and creature comforts such as power front seats, automatic climate control, a heated steering wheel and wireless charging. Find a Chevrolet Colorado for sale

2019 Chevrolet Blazer

2019 Chevrolet Blazer

The Chevy Blazer is back for 2019 as an all-new midsize crossover slotted between the compact Equinox and the 3-row Traverse. The Blazer makes a fashion statement with Camaro-inspired styling while also being a very practical SUV. The sweet spot in value for a Blazer under $40,000 is the Blazer Leather model with the V6 engine and front-wheel drive (FWD), which includes perforated leather seats (the front seats are heated), modern safety and driver assistance tech including rear cross-traffic alert, rear park assist and lane-departure warning and a power programmable lift gate. The sporty new Blazer has a look that makes it stand out in a crowded field of otherwise bland crossovers. Find a Chevrolet Blazer for sale

2019 Chevrolet Impala Premier

2019 Chevrolet Impala Premier

Want a luxury sedan without paying the premium that comes with a luxury brand? The Chevy Impala Premier flies under the radar as one of the nicest full-size sedans you can get in this price range. Not only does this Impala have an enormous cabin with a roomy back seat and a cavernous trunk, but you and your passengers will be supremely comfortable thanks to perforated leather seats, excellent ride quality and smooth power from the car’s V6 engine. The Impala Premier also includes modern safety tech, remote start, navigation, a chrome exterior trim, HID headlights, 19-in wheels and much more. Find a Chevrolet Impala for sale
