Chevy Dealers nationwide have a lot to be proud of. Representing the only automaker to earn J.D. Power dependability awards across their entire line of cars, trucks, and SUVs is a strong statement within itself. Enhancing it further is the fact that Chevy has achieved this feat, two years in a row.
Recognized as offering the Most Dependable Small Car, Midsize Sport Car, Large SUV and Heavy-Duty Pickup, Chevy does anything but rest on its laurels. And despite the honor of having received these accolades for the Sonic, Camaro, Tahoe and Silverado respectively, Chevy’s line is even more diverse, having received countless other awards including those from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
Dependability and safety aside, Chevy offerings remain fashion-forward in terms of design, innovative in their available technologies and among class-leading options for fuel efficiency and overall performance. So, if you find yourself searching Chevy Dealers in your area, you can look forward to the opportunity of choosing among some of the best vehicles on the road today.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at Chevy’s compelling lineup, starting with…
Recognized as the 2016 ‘Green Car of the Year’ and as Autobytel’s ‘Car of the Year’ the Chevy Volt is deserving of consideration from any hybrid enthusiast. With a 50-mile all-electric range, and an estimated 42 mpg combined, it’s a perfect EV pick for anyone interested. But for more traditional tastes…
Enter the subcompact Chevy Spark, recognized by Kelley Blue Book as one of the ’10 Most Affordable Cars’ and for its ‘5 Year Cost-to-Own Value’. An IIHS ‘Top Safety Pick’ the hatchback styling of the Spark marries convenience with affordability, and a wealth of tech amenities demanded by first-time buyers.
As mentioned above, the Chevy Sonic scores J.D. Power and Associates endorsement as ‘Most Dependable Small Car’ and an IIHS ‘Top Safety Pick’. As if that weren’t enough, Kelley Blue Book celebrates it the marriage of economy and technologies, naming it ‘Coolest Car Under $18,000’. Deceptively roomy and fun to drive, the Spark offers the option of a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine or a turbocharged 1.4-liter. With 138 horsepower and up to 148 lb-ft of torque, it’s perfect for the commuter or urban adventurer.
Another IIHS ‘Top Safety Pick’ is the Chevy Malibu, named by U.S News & World Report as the ‘Best Midsize Car for Families’ (and its hybrid variant the ‘Best Hybrid Car for Families’). Roomy, stylish and invigorated with an updated look, the sedan also offers efficiency with an estimated 36 mpg (highway).
Last but certainly not least, the iconic Chevy Impala is U.S. News & World Report’s ‘Best Large Car for the Money’. Kelley Blue Book’s pick for ‘5-Year Cost to Own’ the Impala is also among their pick for the ’10 Most Comfortable Cars Under $30K’. That fusion of comfort and affordability make it a perfect pick for anyone interested in a luxury sedan experience, without the luxury sedan price tag.
Award-Winning Crossover / SUV
Kicking things off with the Chevy Trax, we have Kelley Blue Book’s pick for ‘Most Fuel Efficient SUV’ and one of their ’10 Tech-Savviest Cars Under $20K’. Affordable, but Bluetooth-enabled, compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and with available OnStar 4G LTE Wifi, it’s a perfect entry-level SUV for today’s drivers.
The Chevy Equinox is another IIHS Top Safety Pick and of more established offerings of Chevy’s line. This compact crossover can be configured with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder or a 3.6-liter V6. With the latter serving up 301 horsepower, 272 lb-ft of torque and 20 mpg combined it remains a strong contender within the segment.
U.S News & World Report’s ‘Best Large Car For The Money’ the Chevy Traverse offers more passenger than you can expect without jumping up to a full-size SUV. All in all it’s a perfect three-row seater for the car-buying budget of a family.
The Chevy Tahoe is rife with accolades, beginning with J.D. Power and Associates’ ‘Most Dependable Large SUV’ and U.S News & World Report’s ‘Best Large SUV for Families’. One of Kelley Blue Book’s ’12 Best Family Cars’, they also recognize the Tape for its ‘Best Resale Value’ and ‘5-Year Cost to Own’ value. What more do we need to say?
Speaking of KBB ‘Best Resale Value’, the Chevy Suburban is yet another recipient of that recognition. And with a class-leading passenger, cargo and towing capacity the Suburban leaves very little to want, covering all the bases.
Recognized among the best small-to-midsize trucks by Autobytel, Edmunds and U.S News & World Report, the Chevy Colorado also boasts KBB recognition for its ‘5 Year Cost-to-Own’ value. With a variety of configuration options for cab, bed and powertrain, there’s a Colorado for almost any Chevy truck buyer.
J.D. Power and Associates’ ‘Most Dependable Large Heavy-Duty Pick-up’ 3 years in a row, the Chevy Silverado is also recognized for its ‘Best Resale Value’ and ‘5 Year Cost-to-Own’ value. And rightfully so. As one of American’s top-selling trucks of all time, the Silverado is another configuration-heavy option from Chevrolet, worth every penny spent on it.
And if you think we’ve forgotten about Chevy’s performance-based options like the Camaro, SS Sedan and Corvettes, rest assured that we haven’t. You’ll just have to dig a little deeper because we’re going to need a lot more literary real estate than ‘this’ to have the kind of fun we’d want to have with those bad boys.
