Should You Consider Chevrolet?

While there are a number of brands under the General Motors umbrella, Chevrolet is the company’s bread and butter, offering an array of mainstream, affordable cars, trucks and SUVs, along with a few exciting performance models. While the company has long struggled with its reputation with regard to quality and dependability, it offers a variety of strong products in the most competitive market segments. Here, we’ll take a look at some it those products to help you determine if the brand is worth your consideration.

Chevrolet Silverado

Chevrolet Silverado

The Chevrolet Silverado is all new for 2019 along with its corporate twin, the GMC Sierra. The Silverado offers four different gas engine options, from a new 2.7-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder to a potent 6.2-liter V8, along with all of the cabin configurations you could ask for. Notable trim levels include the luxurious High Country model, which comes with such niceties as a high end interior and seating surfaces and a power up and down tailgate. A new off-road trim level joins the lineup, known as the Trailboss. Available with either a V6 or the smaller of the Silverado’s two available V8 powerplants, the Trailboss gets unique exterior styling along with all-terrain tires, a 2-in lift and Rancho monotube shock absorbers. The new Silverado is a solid offering, but we recommend prospective buyers consider alternatives from Ram and Ford before making a decision. Find a Chevrolet Silverado for sale

Chevrolet Blazer

Chevrolet Blazer

Chevrolet has brought back the famed Blazer name for 2020, but the new model is far different than the truck-based Blazer from the ’80s and ’90s. Now based on a crossover-style platform shared with the rest of GM’s crossover offerings, including Chevrolet’s own Traverse, the new Blazer forgoes off-road capability for on-road comfort and efficiency. With styling that many feel draws from the lines and proportions of the Camaro sports car, the Blazer offers a combination of style and practicality, making it great for single people or small families who can do without a third row.

Chevrolet Traverse

Chevrolet Traverse

The Traverse is Chevrolet’s mid- to large-sized 3-row crossover. It shares its platform with the Buick Enclave, the GMC Acadia and the new Cadillac XT6. With room for up to eight, the Traverse is great for families looking for practical, versatile, spacious transportation. Power comes from either a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder or a 3.6-liter V6, both of which come paired with a 9-speed automatic. Features available on upper trim levels include a power-folding third row seat, a panoramic sunroof, a 360-degree camera and a Bose premium audio system among other things.

Chevrolet Malibu

Chevrolet Malibu

The Malibu is Chevrolet’s midsize sedan. Two different gas versions are offered, along with a hybrid variant that earns 46 miles per gallon combined. The Malibu offers modern cabin tech and great safety features, not to mention attractive exterior styling. Top of the line Premier models get a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission. While you’re likely to encounter them on rental car lots, the current iteration of the Malibu is more than just a basic economy car, despite the fact that it isn’t considered as often as comparable vehicles from Japanese and Korean competitors.

Chevrolet Bolt

The Bolt is Chevrolet’s all-electric offering and its generally regarded as being quite good. The Bolt ranges in price from $38,000 to just over $44,000, before any state and federal tax rebates. Its electric powertrain offers an impressive 238 miles of range, which is double that of most other comparably-priced electric vehicles on the market. Additionally, the Bolt offers great driving dynamics, modern safety features and infotainment technology, and ample interior space thanks to its hatchback design. Overall, the Bolt is one of the best vehicles Chevrolet has to offer. Find a Chevrolet Bolt for sale

Autotrader Says

In addition to the vehicles mentioned above, Chevrolet offers a number of other attractive options, from the performance-oriented Camaro and Corvette coupes and convertibles, to the full-size Tahoe and Blazer SUVs, to the Colorado midsize pickup and its exciting ZR2 and ZR2 Bison variants. Altogether, the Chevrolet brand offers something for everyone, and while they sometimes lag behind alternatives with regard to quality and design, the company’s propensity to offer financial incentives tends make its products a great overall value.

  1. Gm spends too much time telling everyone about all their awards and I Don’t care what awards they have I will never own one ! I have had friend’s that have had Gm car’s and truck’s and had nothing but trouble with them ………..I do own a 2001 Pontiac grand Am GT that has been a great car but it has had ton’s of work done to it too get it to that point I have spent 6,000 on engine repair’s but have it the way I want it now with 246,000 miles on the clock I also own a Ford and a jeep the Ford is by far the best one of the bunch 1995 F-250 ford does not brag about all their award’s and have the best selling truck’s in the country ! that has to tell you something . Most farm’s you go too have ford truck’s that they use as their work horses mine has a 460 (7.5 L) engine and i use it to haul a 2,600 pound camper and it does great my buddy used his Gm truck to haul my camper once and it could barley carry the weight 

    • Best cars I ever had were chevys, try taking care of your cars and give them the proper, preventive maintenence, last recall comes to mind was from chinese supplier.

  2. I have a 2006 Malibu that has had all kinds of problems and subject to 4 or 5 recalls. All of the GM recalls have totally turned me off of Chevy and GM products in general. I am currently shopping and still own a 2003 Buick, but not really considering a GM product. Looking at Ford, Toyota and Nissan.
