You Need a Used Chevy
Whether you are shopping for a sedan like the Malibu, an SUV like the Tahoe, or a workhorse like the Silverado, you can't go wrong when it comes to a used Chevy. Chevy's reputation for building innovative, reliable, and powerful vehicles is one that's been in the making since the automaker got its start in the early 1900s. This is also one of the biggest reasons why shopping for a used Chevy is a great option because you know exactly what you're getting with the Chevy brand.
Chevy's commitment to innovation is more than the addition of the latest tech features that are meant to keep you connected even when you're on the road. Chevy's innovation extends to its safety features, with Chevy consistently earning top safety scores from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). For example, the 2021 Trailblazer is an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ and joins several other Chevy models that have won that prestigious award. Features like Automatic Emergency Braking, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Side Blind Zone Alert, the rearview camera, and advanced airbags make buying a used Chevy a great and safe option.
In addition to safety, you'll also discover that Chevys are designed with you in mind. Whether you are looking for a sedan like the Malibu, a small-size SUV like the Equinox, a full-size SUV like the Suburban, or a truck like the Silverado, you'll find everything you need to get around Staten Island in our used Chevy lineup. It's even better that these functional vehicles are not only designed to work for you, but they're also safe, innovative, and affordable. This is what makes shopping for a used Chevy an attractive option if you're looking for a great value vehicle that will serve you for many years. Here are some of the top used models you can find on our lot.
Used Chevy Silverado 1500
If you're in the market for a tough pickup truck, there's no better model out there than the Silverado 1500. This strong truck offers stellar capabilities, incomparable power, and a durable build to help you plow through the day's work easily. The Silverado 1500 got its start as a standalone model in 1999; however, that wasn't the first time the name was heard. It originally debuted as a trim level in 1975 but became so popular that Chevrolet decided that it deserved to be a model all its own.
Since this truck has been around for quite a while, there are a number of model years that are perfectly suited to deliver the kind of ride you desire. Third-generation Silverado 1500 models from 2014 through 2018 boast favorable upgrades, including more upscale interior features and multiple engine options to appeal to any type of travel or work need. Opting for even newer models from 2019 and on allows you to enjoy a lightweight platform that enhances performance and efficiency. No matter which model year you pick, you're able to take advantage of top towing marks, spectacular payload capacity, and dependability that is unmatched by its rivals.
The Silverado 1500 is a phenomenal truck to have on the job site or on the highway, with a versatility that's difficult to find in other trucks on the road. It's a trusted workhorse, capable commuter, and everyday truck that works for a vast array of Staten Island drivers. Due to this type of flexibility, as well as a strength that can't be replicated, the Silverado 1500 continues to be a top performer in our Chevy inventory.
Used Chevy Equinox
Another crowd favorite is the Chevy Equinox, the best-selling SUV offering from the brand. When it first emerged onto the scene for the 2005 model year, the Equinox was a midsize SUV known for its rugged good looks and pleasing adaptability. Over the years, it steadily gained popularity with families and travelers who needed more room than a traditional sedan could provide but who didn't want a large, cumbersome vehicle to have to maneuver all over town. The answer to their needs was the Equinox SUV. There are plenty of used models to choose from, which makes finding a used Equinox with the features and capabilities you desire easier than ever.
The Equinox delivers practicality to your drive, with your choice of engines, as well as available all-wheel drive capabilities to make for a safer and more controlled ride, even in bad weather.
Choosing newer models will allow you to enjoy more driver-assist features and safety options, which is a win for Staten Island drivers looking for the right vehicle for their families. The Equinox handles like a car but offers the space of an SUV, which is the perfect combination for anyone searching for an easily manageable SUV to help them get through New York City safely and confidently.
Used Chevy Traverse
When you take the most desirable sized SUV for families, design it with ample interior space, premium features, and impressive power, add a third row of seating, and put the acclaimed Chevy badge to it, you get the Chevy Traverse. Although it may be a midsize crossover SUV, the Traverse is built to be at the top and has been since the beginning. The Chevy Traverse debuted for the 2009 model year as a three-row, looking quite similar to a minivan with its rounded design, appealing to drivers with its roomy and welcoming interior and powerful performance.
For the 2018 model year, the second-generation design hit the market, and the Traverse morphed into an attractive, blocky, and athletic truck-like minivan alternative. It still has enough seating for the whole family—up to eight people, to be exact—with some of the best passenger legroom and volume ratings in its class. Not to mention the slew of features and technology the Chevy Traverse has to offer all of its passengers. Plus, with several trims to choose from, you can tailor the look and comfort level of your SUV around you and your family's specific needs. And since the Traverse sits on a unibody chassis, even though it has the towing capacity of a small truck, it rides like a sedan, so you can always expect an enjoyable experience wherever the road takes you.
Used Chevy Suburban and Chevy Tahoe
When hauling around more passengers and cargo is on the agenda, Chevy has a selection of large SUVs designed to take these tasks head-on. The Suburban has been a trusted family hauler for generations, offering a cavernous interior and tons of power, with the Chevy spirit emanating throughout. With the ability to seat nine when properly configured, the Suburban is perfectly capable of accommodating Staten Island drivers who require more space in their vehicle. Sticking to model years just a couple of years old will allow you to take advantage of cutting-edge tech and safety features, a more comfortable cabin, and a powerful and efficient available diesel engine. Rest assured that if your travels warrant one of the largest SUVs around, the Suburban is a top option, designed to handle more.
In addition to the massive Suburban, the Tahoe is another exceptional model in the Chevy arsenal, making its debut in the 1990s. If the Suburban is a bit too large for you to handle on the city streets, the Tahoe is a great option, offering seating to accommodate seven to nine passengers, depending on the configuration, and plenty of cargo space to handle all of your gear. If you're interested in a used Tahoe, fourth-generation models are highly advised, as you're able to enjoy beautiful styling, pleasing efficiency, and innovative tech designed to make your ride more connected. For the drivers out there who need space in their SUV, these two used Chevy options will deliver that and so much more.
Used Chevy Trailblazer
You may have previously heard of the Trailblazer nameplate. Chevy has used the name multiple times over the years, originating as a premium trim level for the Blazer in 1999. But the older versions don't even compare to the Chevy Trailblazer we're referring to. The body-on-frame TrailBlazer (with a capital "B"), which was part of Chevy's lineup before the current version, was more trail-ready than the modern Trailblazer since it sat on a Chevy Colorado truck chassis with either four-wheel drive. While the 2021 model and newer may not perform as well as previous variants off-road, a used Trailblazer is a perfect blend of comfort, performance, and capability for Staten Island drivers. The fun-size design is for more than just appearance. It allows for easy maneuverability on narrow roads or in congested traffic, taking some of the stress out of driving in New York City. And with your choice of two turbocharged engines, the Trailblazer delivers better fuel economy than its smaller sibling, the Chevy Trax. When equipped properly, the Trailblazer can even tow up to 1,000 lbs. More importantly, although it might not be built to handle the deep woods like the larger SUV that used to carry the nameplate could, the crossover Trailblazer remains a versatile utility vehicle for urban families.
With comfortable seating for up to five people, the Trailblazer makes for a great passenger vehicle with ample interior cargo space, a satisfying amount of comfort and convenience amenities, and tech features. Plus, with the option for all-wheel drive, you can conquer any road conditions. So if you like to spend your vacations outside of the city visiting campsites and finding little-known hiking trails, you don't need a larger vehicle that won't fit the streets of Staten Island.
Used Chevy Colorado
For the perfectly sized urban truck with optimal efficiency, the Chevy Colorado is a superior choice. As a bonus, it's the least expensive truck in Chevy's lineup, making it even more attainable as a used model. It is also one of America's favorite midsize trucks, and we're going to explain to you how it became so favorable to drivers just like you.
The Colorado entered Chevy's lineup as a compact truck for the 2004 model year with multiple cab configurations and powertrains to oblige any driver looking for a small truck with big-time potential. The second-generation Chevy Colorado grew and upgraded into the midsize segment with a more spacious and accommodating cabin that can seat up to five passengers with the crew cab models, still with plenty of customizable options. It's even available with your choice of either a gasoline or diesel engine for customizable capabilities and performance.
For the Colorado that performs as well off-road as it does on, look for a Colorado ZR2. The trail-ready ZR2 trim was introduced in 2017 for the Colorado and the more rugged ZR2 Bison edition in 2019. Not only do these Colorados look more intimidating than other trims, but they are built for the rough terrain. They include off-road specific features and equipment, plus body armor, on top of higher ground clearance, to deliver the best performance off the pavement. If you've always wanted to take to the trail at some of New York's best off-road parks, this is the truck for you with better fuel economy than larger off-road vehicles.
Used Chevy Blazer
The Chevy Blazer has a rich history, dating back to the 1960s, with the debut of the very first K5 model, boasting a rugged design that was built to explore. After decades on the market, the Blazer was eventually discontinued in the early 2010s, but it wouldn't be long before the Blazer was back in the Chevy lineup. In 2019, the Blazer returned, only this time, it showcased sweeping curves and handsome styling, elegant interior features, and an air of superiority around it that couldn't be denied. The best part about shopping for a used Blazer is the diverse selection you get to enjoy, from rough and tumble favorites of the past to the new-age sophisticated models of its rebirth. Models from 2019 and newer will, of course, showcase a more graceful stance as opposed to older models. You'll be able to take advantage of Camaro-inspired design elements, a spacious and refined cabin, and an engine selection that offers suitable power for your journey. Whether you're looking for a commuter vehicle to get you around Staten Island or something to take you on your next adventure, the Blazer's versatility appeals to many different types of drivers. Its style is unique, but that's to be expected with this Chevy favorite. Whether you want to enjoy a sleek design with its newer models or you'd prefer to own a piece of history, there's undoubtedly a used Blazer available to suit your needs.
Used Chevy Malibu
Although it no longer sports the elongated shape that defined it in the 1960s, the Malibu is still very much a crowd favorite in the Chevrolet lineup. This midsize sedan is holding its own amongst the SUVs and trucks on the road today, recognized for its stylish and athletic appeal, spacious interior, and excellent ride quality. It's regarded as an exceptional family car, with a roomy trunk, durable build, and an abundance of safety features, especially when opting for newer models. Currently in its ninth generation, the Malibu is one the oldest sedans still being manufactured today, and if you're looking for a used car you can depend on to deliver an exciting ride and more, the Malibu is ready to wow you.
Easy to maneuver in the tight parking spots or packed city streets of Staten Island and remarkably efficient, especially with the hybrid powertrain available in newer models, the Malibu showcases a pleasing ride, no matter where the destination lies. Multiple trim levels are available, ranging from the simplistic to the refined, while comfortable seating and impressive legroom allow all on board to relax and enjoy its dynamic ride. Undeniably safe, earning top nods in safety testing on many of its models, the Malibu really does offer drivers everything they're looking for in their travels, all wrapped up into one easy-to-handle package.
Used Chevy Silverado 2500 HD and Chevy Silverado 3500
HD Sometimes the standard full-size pickup just isn't enough for the heavy weight you need to carry or tow around. Whether you're looking for a work truck or personal vehicle that can handle more than a half-ton pickup can, that's where the Chevy Silverado HD comes into play. You'll have plenty of interior passenger space and an abundance of advanced technology with both the Silverado 2500 HD and the 3500 HD to complement the additional power and strength, but since they're focused on heavy-duty on-road capability rather than high-performance pavement and off-road capability, you'll have fewer trims and powertrains to choose from than you would with the Silverado 1500. The powertrains you can expect to find under the hood of both of these heavy-duty trucks consist of robust V8 gasoline or turbo-diesel engines with either two-wheel or four-wheel drive. Since they share the same powertrains, you might be wondering what distinguishes them from each other. Well, it's their suspension.
The Silverado 3500 HD is built with a more rugged suspension and is even available with dual rear wheels to help carry heavy loads. This allows it to tow up to double the weight that the Silverado 2500 HD can. So if you're looking for a used heavy-duty truck with the highest towing ratings, opt for the Silverado 3500 HD. But for a more comfortable ride, go with the lighter Silverado 2500 HD.
