Crossovers are the best of both worlds, the practicality of a truck-based SUV with people- and cargo-carrying capability and the comfort and everyday usability of a family sedan or minivan. Chevrolet has a wide range of the car-based SUVs from entry-level subcompact to 3-row midsize models.
ChevroletTrax: Is the Chevrolet Trax a small SUV or a subcompact-crossover SUV? It really doesn't matter. What does matter is that Trax is made for the city with its turn-on-a-dime radius and park-anywhere capability. For foul-weather capability, Trax is available in all-wheel drive. Features include a 1.4-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
ChevroletEquinox: Think of the Chevrolet Equinox as the rival to the Rogue, Escape and RAV4. It's similar in structure, cargo capacity and features to the others. Engine choices include a 1.5-liter turbo four-cylinder and a 2.0-liter turbo four. The Equinox includes standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto along with 4G LTE connectivity. Active safety features require the highest trim level.
ChevroletBlazer: An emerging segment between compact and 3-row midsize crossovers is the midsize-based 2-row variety that includes Blazer. This smartly packaged 5-passenger crossover is available in front- or all-wheel-drive. A choice between a 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder and a 3.6-liter V6 with a 9-speed automatic transmission provides motivation and towing ability up to 4,500 pounds.
ChevroletTraverse: The Chevrolet Traverse is a 3-row CUV with seating for up to eight. It features minivan-like utility, available all-wheel-drive (with V6) and up to 5,000 pounds of towing capability. Two power choices include a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine or a 310 horsepower 3.6-liter V6 with 9-speed automatic transmission. Inside you'll find Apple CarPlay and Android Auto along with an available Bose 10-speaker audio system, the latest infotainment technology and an onboard 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. The ultimate Traverse High Country tops the range.
Chevrolet seemingly has a crossover for every segment and customer need. Thoughtfully designed, with many available powertrain choices, tech features and safety options, you can feel confident that you'll find one that successfully ticks all the boxes.

As a mainstream brand, Chevrolet has had a long and storied presence in the sedan market, offering a wide range of 4-door models ideally suited for family transportation. While it still has vehicles in most of the segments, Chevrolet is beginning to face the reality of the shift of consumers away from traditional cars in favor of crossover SUVs and trucks. As a result, GM's mass market division is looking to trim the offerings in this segment as it expands its crossover SUV portfolio. The first casualty is the compact Cruze, which ended production in mid-2019.
ChevroletSpark: With great mileage and better than expected acceleration, not to mention a healthy mix of infotainment and safety technologies, the Spark is a great commuter car. It offers a 7-inch touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Wi-Fi, forward collision warning and a rearview camera.
ChevroletSonic: The perfect first car for a new driver or a family in need of a second, the Chevrolet Sonic offers a low price, decent fuel economy and an unusually spacious interior. A peppy 1.4-liter turbocharged engine is standard. Add in all the desirable features that young drivers want, like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and a Wi-Fi hotspot and you will find a fun-to-drive car that is easy to live with.
ChevroletMalibu: A roomy and efficient family sedan with sport-like manners and good-looking style, Malibu is designed to compete against the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry and Kia Optima, among others. Available options include Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, automatic parking assist and adaptive cruise control. Power comes from a choice of 1.5-liter or 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. However, as part of GM's announcement to phase out hybrid technology, Chevrolet will no longer build the Malibu Hybrid after 2019.
ChevroletImpala: The Chevrolet Impala continues the tradition of a large sedan boasting a plushy appointed cabin, comfortable interior and a huge trunk. It's the quintessential American family sedan that also offers high-tech features including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, OnStar, Bluetooth and a Wi-Fi Hotspot. Power comes from an efficient 2.5-liter 4-cylinder or a 3.6-liter V6. Both engines drive the front wheels through 6-speed automatic transmissions.
With pedigrees nearly as long as the roads they travel on, Chevrolet SUVs are capable choices to carry people & cargo and tow things behind. That's partly because of their robust body-on-chassis construction and pickup truck roots. Typically, these full-size SUVs feature V6 and V8 power delivered to the rear axle in 2-wheel drive as well as 4-wheel drive as an option. This layout is why they're so good at towing big things, but don't think of them as work trucks. Think of them as really big pickup truck-based station wagons with all the amenities you'd expect from the luxury sedan.
ChevroletSuburban: Dating back to 1934, the Chevrolet Suburban is the longest continuous automobile nameplate in production. The Suburban may be in its 11th generation, but don't call it "old". Weighing almost three tons and able to carry up to nine passengers, this SUV drives like a large luxury sedan that just happens to ride higher. Order the Suburban Premier or RST Performance model for magnetically adjustable shocks that adjust to the road surfaces in a fraction of a second. Buyers can choose between a 355 horsepower 5.3-liter V8 or a larger, more powerful 6.2-liter V8 that makes 420 horsepower. Other choices include 2- or 4-wheel-drive. Maximum trailering of 8,300 pounds occurs with the 5.3-liter V8 and 2WD Max Trailering Package.
ChevroletTahoe: Able to carry up to nine passengers and tow up to 8,400 pounds depending on configuration, the Chevrolet Tahoe is the Suburban's shorter but no-less capable sibling. Built on a strong truck-like frame, which trades a little comfort for a lot of capability, it can be outfitted with a choice of 5.3-liter or 6.2-liter V8 engines and 2WD or 4WD powertrains. Magnetic Ride Control is an option.
Both the Suburban and Tahoe are nearing the end of their current product cycle. All-new versions of Chevrolet's full-size SUVs are slated for a complete makeover that will bow in over the next year as 2021 models.
While these full-size SUVs sit atop Chevrolet's hierarchy, a full-range of car-based crossovers are also available, including the subcompact Chevrolet Trax, the compact Equinox, the midsize 2-row Blazer and the midsize 3-row Traverse.
Pick your task and chances are Chevrolet has a pickup truck for it. With a fleet of vehicles tracing back to 1947, the Chevy brand from General Motors continues to build a tough series of trucks for a variety of users and jobs. Some can be so luxuriously outfitted that it would actually be a shame to get them dirty. Nearly all of these are also offered with different names under the GMC banner. Here's a brief rundown of the Chevrolet lineup.
ChevroletColorado: The Chevy Colorado offers a good balance between work and play. A midsize pickup, it's the perfect choice for those needing the capabilities - without the full-size footprint - of its Silverado sibling. There's a choice of engines, ranging from a fuel-efficient 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder, to the stout 3.6-liter V6 and torquey 2.8-liter 4-cylinder turbodiesel, with its maximum towing capability of 7,700 pounds. Chevrolet also has the off-road-oriented Colorado ZR2 with its purpose-built performance suspension.
ChevroletSilverado1500: Fresh off a redesign, the Chevrolet Silverado is the brand's standard-bearing full-size truck. Filled with technology and smart engineering for lighter overall weight, it has become more efficient and roomier in the process. Body styles include regular cab, double cab and crew cab, as well as standard, short and long beds. Five engines are available including a 4.3-liter V6, 2.7-liter inline 4-cylinder, 5.3-liter V8, 6.2-liter V8, and 3.0-liter inline 6-cylinder turbodiesel. Three transmissions including a 10-speed automatic help the 2WD or 4WD Silverado achieve a max tow rating of 12,200 pounds. Trim levels range from work truck all the way up to a High Country tourer.
ChevroletSilverado2500HD: The ultimate get-to-work truck, the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD offers two heavy-duty powertrain options and some of the best trailering technology available today. Engine choices include a 6.6-liter V8 gas engine with 464 lb-ft of torque or a Duramax 6.6-liter turbo-diesel engine making 910 lb-ft of torque. Max towing of 15,400 pounds increases to 18,510 pounds when equipped with a gooseneck trailer hitch.
ChevroletSilverado3500HD: The heavier duty (1-ton) version of the Silverado 2500HD, the 3500HD is even more capable. Power is plentiful, thanks to a 401 horsepower 6.6-liter direct-injection gas engine or the 6.6-liter Duramax turbodiesel that makes 910 lb-ft of torque. Outfit the 3500HD with single or dually rear tires. Maximum towing is 21,300 pounds from the trailer hitch and up to 35,500 pounds with gooseneck hitch.
For fleet usage, there is the carryover Silverado 1500 LD. It is the work truck version of the 2018 Silverado, designed with limited options primarily for fleet use.
Chevrolet is one of the best-known automotive brands in the industry, and one of the most-loved. Chevy builds everything from tiny economy cars and affordable long-range electric vehicles to full-size pickups and SUVs. Chevrolet also makes what many refer to as "America's sports car," the Corvette, as well as the legendary Camaro. While other domestic automakers are giving up cars, Chevy offers several practical hatchbacks and sedans.
