What’s The Chevy For Me?

When you walk into a proper Chevy Dealership, there’s no reason to question that you will be in good hands and be provided an excellent product. However, just because you know to walk into a reputable dealership does not mean that you should do so without doing some research yourself. You can make your local salespersons life that much easier when you narrow down the reason why you need a new vehicle. Purchasing a new car can become overwhelming, so take the time to do some research on your own time so that your local Chevy Dealership can provide you with the perfect car for your situation.

Most people purchase a vehicle for one of four reasons. Most often, a consumer is just looking for an affordable, economical, and comfortable ride to get them to work and back. Consumers in this category would be best served with a sedan. Other consumers are in a position where they need to drive friends and family to events every so often. To comfortably carry all of their people and cargo, an SUV is recommended.

For the consumer that needs more utility, a properly equipped truck can ensure you get your work done in just about any condition. The final consumer is the individual that is looking to spoil themselves. They are willing to pay for exactly what they want, and Chevy has provided them with many, many options to choose from in any body style. When you know what you need your car for, it becomes a lot easier to shop for the right vehicle.

Just Get Me To Work!

If you just want four wheels and an engine, most Chevy Dealerships will be happy to sell you a reliable automobile in both new and used conditions. I’d like to encourage you not to sell yourself quite that short. Sure, if you’re in a pinch, then you need to buy the cheapest deal you can get your hands on. For consumers in that position, I would recommend the Chevy Spark. The 2020 Spark gets excellent fuel efficiency 30 mpg on in the city and 38 mpg on the highway, and it has an MSRP of $16,620.

If you’re not in a pinch and have the time to find a right deal, then you put yourself in a position to be much happier with your purchase. A Chevy Malibu has numerous benefits over the Spark, including more space, a much more powerful engine, and cruise control. If you’re going to be spending a lot of time alone in your car, spend the extra money (if you can) to provide yourself with the best experience possible. Just like a nice mattress, you’ll be happy you spent the extra money for years to come.

 Get Everyone To Practice

Whether you have a large family or are just popular amongst your friend group, you are going to want a bit more space when you need to cart everyone else around constantly. While you can certainly get five adults into a modern sedan, they won’t have much shoulder room, and there’s no way that everyone is going to be able to fit their “seven-day suitcase” in the trunk.

So, the logical thing to do in your situation would be to pick up a quality SUV. Chevrolet has an excellent entry-level SUV in the form of the Trax. The Trax will get you all of the standard features of an SUV at a very easy price to swallow. You’ll have a nice tall seating height and a lot more space for storage over a basic sedan. The Trax is a great vehicle for both entry-level SUV owners or those looking for a second vehicle for the family.

Now, this may not be your first rodeo. Sure, the Trax is nice, but you want/need more than the entry-level SUV. You want a little more flare and functionally. Thankfully, your Chevy Dealership should be able to set you up with the all-new Blazer. When you opt for a Blazer, you get a sharp-looking vehicle with a 3.6L V6. Improve your driving time with accessories like heated seats, remote start, and a power liftgate. Go for all of the accessories that will make your life easier; you’re a popular person, so any time you can save is worth it.

Help Me Get It Done

If you’re in need of a truck, then there is simply no other way around it. If you just need a truck to get the lawnmower to your parents, then you don’t need to get anything fancy. If you plan on using the vehicle in any sort of commercial capacity, then you’re going to want to go above and beyond to make sure that all of your needs are met.

For those looking for a simple vehicle to get their cargo from A to B, Chevy has provided you with the Colorado to exceed all of your expectations. In its cheapest form, you get an extended bed, two-wheel drive and seating for two. You have the option to upgrade to an extended cab and four-wheel drive if you want those features in your entry-level truck.

For the commercial driver, you’re not going to want the base level Colorado unless your business is running incredibly lean. Provide your crew with room to breathe and give yourself increased towing capability with the Chevy Silverado. The Silverado is the defacto truck that every gather around at the job site.

Get Me There In Style

The final consumer to discuss is those who have already purchased the economical car and are now in the position to upgrade the vehicle in their garage. You want all of the bells and whistles because you want your ride to be an experience, not just a commute. No matter what body style you prefer, your Chevrolet dealer will have a selection of options to choose from. When you research luxury vehicles, you’ll notice that some features come standard on these vehicles that would not come standard on a cheaper option.

Things like power seats, parking assist, and Bluetooth connectivity are just some of the things that you can expect standard in your new luxury car. Want to look sharp cruising down the highway? The Impala will provide you with everything you need. Plan on taking the extended family to the cabin this winter? The suburban will have room for everyone and enough power to tow a trailer if needed. Need to get the job done no matter the weather? The Silverado HD is the gold standard when it comes to Chevy trucks.

Get Yourself On The Road

As we’ve seen, there’s no shortage of quality vehicles to choose from at your local Chevrolet dealer. I hope that this overview will help you get into and out of the dealership as quickly as possible in the vehicle of your dreams. Don’t forget to warranty your new baby, modern vehicles can last you a decade if properly taken care of, so it’s worth the investment. There’s nothing left to do but start the purchasing process, and now that you have a good idea of what car would best suit you, you can reach out to your local sales rep with confidence and vigor.
