9 Great Used Chevrolets Under $20,000 for 2019

One of the reasons Chevrolet is such a popular brand in the U.S. is because of the value in its cars, trucks and SUVs. Since new Chevy models are already strong values when new, they get to be even better values when they’ve had a little time to depreciate on the used market.

There are a lot of modern Chevys out there right now that are newer and more affordable than you might think. Here are nine great used Chevrolets you can find on Autotrader for less than $20,000 in 2019.

2018-2019 Chevrolet Equinox

2018-2019 Chevrolet Equinox

The current generation of the Chevy Equinox just came out for the 2018 model year, but there are already many used examples out there for less than $20,000 due to this compact crossover’s already affordable price when new. This Equinox comes with a high-quality interior generously appointed with standard features, even on the base trim. We also like the stable handling of the Equinox giving this practical crossover a rewarding driving experience. Find a Chevrolet Equinox for sale

2016-2019 Chevrolet Malibu

2016-2019 Chevrolet Malibu

The Chevrolet Malibu is a midsize sedan that contains just about everything that people like about the Chevrolet brand. It’s reliable, safe and a great value, especially on the used market. The midsize sedan segment is a competitive one, but the Malibu stands out as a leader for its roomy cabin, comfortable ride and good fuel economy from its peppy turbocharged engines. It also doesn’t hurt that it’s one of the better-looking cars in its class. Find a Chevrolet Malibu for sale

2016-2019 Chevrolet Camaro

2016-2019 Chevrolet Camaro

The Chevrolet Camaro entered its sixth generation lighter, faster and more agile than its predecessor. It retains similar retro/modern styling as the previous generation while offering a nicely updated interior and powerful, efficient engines. Unfortunately, you’re not likely to find a V8-powered SS model at this price point, but the strong V6 and efficient turbocharged 4-cylinder engines are both great options in value-priced modern muscle cars. Find a Chevrolet Camaro for sale

2009-2017 Chevrolet Traverse

2009-2017 Chevrolet Traverse

The first-generation Chevrolet Traverse is Chevy’s first shot at a 3-row crossover SUV after the brand stopped making minivans in the late 2000s. The Traverse does a great job combining the convenience of a minivan with the styling of an SUV. It has a roomy, family-friendly cabin with up to eight seats, a smooth, comfortable ride and available all-wheel drive. At this price point, you should be able to find a used post face-lift Traverse from 2013 or newer with more modern styling and an improved infotainment system. Find a Chevrolet Traverse for sale

2016-2019 Chevrolet Volt

2016-2019 Chevrolet Volt

The Chevrolet Volt was the first mass-market plug-in hybrid car to hit the market and it’s still one of the best. The second-generation model that started in 2016 has a fantastic all-electric range of 53 miles and when the battery runs out of juice, it’s still a super efficient hybrid when it runs on gas with a total range of 420 miles. It also has strong performance thanks to its lively electric powertrain providing no shortage of torque. Combine all of that with a premium interior and excellent safety ratings and you have one of the most attractive compact cars on the used market. Find a Chevrolet Volt for sale

2015-2019 Chevrolet Colorado

2015-2019 Chevrolet Colorado

The Chevrolet Colorado came back with a bang when it returned for the 2015 model year as a class leader in midsize pickup trucks. They’re depreciating pretty slowly, but early examples are starting to creep under the $20,000 mark which is great news for anyone looking for an affordable, modern, midsize truck. You probably won’t find a V6 or diesel model at this price point, but it has a strong base engine that’s good on gas and the crew cab models are surprisingly roomy inside. Find a Chevrolet Colorado for sale

2014-2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

2014-2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

This generation of the Chevrolet Silverado was short-lived, but it’s become a strong value worth considering in the used pickup truck market. It has all of the rock-solid reliability you’ve come to expect from a Chevy truck plus a muscular aesthetic with the capable V8 engines to back it up. Its smooth ride makes it great for driving to the office, the worksite or anywhere in-between. When it comes to used Chevrolets, this Silverado is a tough, capable truck that won’t break the bank. Find a Chevrolet Silverado 1500 for sale

2007-2014 Chevrolet Tahoe

2007-2014 Chevrolet Tahoe/Suburban

The Chevrolet Tahoe and the Suburban, its bigger sibling, have long been favorites in full-size SUVs and it’s not hard to see why. They combine truck like capability with minivan like family-friendliness into one ultimate SUV that does everything. Whether you’re taking the kids to school or hauling a boat to the lake with the whole family in tow, the Tahoe and the Suburban can do it all without breaking a sweat. If you’re planning on using the third row of seats regularly, your passengers will appreciate the extra room in the Suburban over the Tahoe. Find a Chevrolet Tahoe for sale or Find a Chevrolet Suburban for sale

2005-2013 Chevrolet Corvette

2005-2013 Chevrolet Corvette

The sweet spot in used Corvettes right now is the C6 generation that ran from the mid-2000s to the mid-2010s. Early examples in good shape with reasonably low miles are starting to pop up for less than $20,000 making them a great value in used sports cars. This generation of the Corvette is significant for a greatly updated interior over previous Corvettes. It’s also more practical than you might think with a ride that’s comfortable enough for daily driving and a surprising amount of cargo space. Find a Chevrolet Corvette for sale
