When faced with the need to shop for a new car, many people might feel a sense of trepidation.

We love new Chevys because they deliver budget-friendly models that emphasize quality, safety, and innovation with a big chunk of personalization options to suit you. That being said, affordable used Chevys are great too, with Certified Pre-Owned models providing additional confidence thanks to their thorough inspections and extended factory warranties. If you are looking for something other than a Chevy, then our used inventory often includes vehicles from over a dozen different manufacturers, all for sale with DePaula’s transparent and convenient process so that you have it easy.
Want a new car on a used car budget? Well, you can almost have your cake and eat it too, thanks to our Better Buy Vehicles selection. These like-new cars are guaranteed to have fewer than 3,500 previously-driven courtesy miles on them. Since the cars have been driven, you benefit from seriously discounted prices, and since the cars are still new, you also benefit from the same low financing rates and great leasing programs as the brand-new version. Factory rebates, incentives, and the remainder of the factory warranty apply to Better Buy Vehicles too, so our customers can maximize the value they get with a like-new Chevy.
As Chevy’s best-selling model, it’s no surprise that the Silverado gets a lot of attention. Year after year, this truck lives up to the hype with a wide array of powertrain options and the most user-friendly systems in the segment. The 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 not only delivers improved performance from its 4-cylinder and diesel engine options, but it also enhances the usability of the cargo bed and provides 15 unique camera views for easy navigation.
The 2021 Silverado 1500 comes with five engine options to choose from. The most fuel-efficient gas option is a 2.7L turbo I-4, the only 4-cylinder in the segment, paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Producing 310 hp and 348 lb-ft of torque, this small engine allows Silverado owners to maximize payload at 2,280 lbs. When properly equipped, this engine can tow up to 9,300 lbs. Fuel economy is also pretty decent, getting 20 MPG in the city and 23 MPG on the highway when equipped with RWD or 19 MPG in the city and 22 MPG on the highway when equipped with 4WD.
The 3.0L Duramax turbo-diesel is also improved for 2021. With an output of 277 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque, its performance is highlighted by a fuel efficiency of 23 MPG in the city and 33 MPG on the highway with RWD or 22 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highway with 4WD. This engine is an excellent choice for achieving long-term fuel savings while achieving a maximum towing capacity of 9,500 lbs.
The Silverado 1500’s best engines are undoubtedly the V8s. A stout 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 can be paired to a 6, 8, or 10-speed automatic transmission, with each delivering slightly different towing and fuel efficiency results. This engine produces 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. While each configuration of this engine is powerful, the pairing of the 8-speed transmission and RWD will achieve the max towing capacity of 11,500 lbs when properly equipped.
That’s good, but it’s also dwarfed by the 6.2L EcoTec3 V8’s 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque output. The 6.2L engine is available on the High Country, LTZ, LT Trail Boss, and Custom Trail Boss trims. This is the most-capable V8 in the segment with a maximum of 13,300 lbs of towing capacity, making it the obvious choice for Silverado 1500 owners who’ve got a lot of work to do.
The 2021 Silverado 1500 stands out from the other full-size pickups thanks to its multi-function tailgate and suite of camera views. New for 2021 is the Multi-Flex tailgate, a Chevy re-skin of GMC’s 6-function Multi-Pro tailgate. And with cameras all over the truck, working together to provide 15 unique views, every conceivable blind-spot you have, is eliminated. With all of these new possibilities, the 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 is a showstopper.
The Chevy Trax is an urbanite’s SUV through and through. The tall profile and high seating position provide an unobstructed view of your surroundings. Folding the rear and front passenger seats provide a surprising 48.4 cu.ft. of cargo room and enough versatility to accommodate 8-foot long objects. With an overall length of under 14-feet, the Trax is highly maneuverable in cramped parking lots and busy city streets.
The Trax is powered by a 1.4L EcoTec turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that achieves a fuel efficiency of 26 MPG in the city and 31 MPG on the highway when equipped with FWD and 24 MPG in the city and 29 MPG on the highway with AWD. The 138 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque give this little SUV plenty of zip for jumping into traffic, and the available AWD drivetrain helps maximize traction under any weather conditions.
The 2021 Trax includes a standard rear vision camera and safety packages to add blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alerts, and rear park assist. The blind-spot monitor is great for avoiding lane change mishaps, and rear park assist with the rear vision camera makes backing into tight spots easy as pie. Rear cross-traffic alert is especially helpful for scenarios where you need to back out of a spot with a wall or larger vehicle blocking your vision to either side.
The best thing about the Trax is that even though it’s incredibly budget-friendly, it still brings a ton of personality. Nine paint colors are available to every Trax, and Redline, Midnight, and Sport special edition appearance kits are available too so you can make sure your Trax looks exactly the way you want it. A classy jet black interior, standard Chevy Infotainment 3 with a 7” touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and 4G Wi-Fi hotspot capability give the Trax a modern feel inside and out. For a safe, high-tech, personalized ride that’ll fit nearly anywhere, look no further than the 2021 Chevy Trax.
Chevrolet carries a legacy of American automotive greatness with over 100 years of experience innovating for the American people. No nameplate signifies that legacy more than the Suburban. The extremely durable design, along with its enclosed cabin, started a new revolution by inventing the Sport Utility Vehicle.
The 2021 Chevy Suburban is the 12th generation of the SUV that started it all. It’s a name that’s now synonymous with bigness – there’s simply no competition when it comes to people and cargo-moving capacity. The wheelbase is 4” longer, and the cargo floor is lower, resulting in a significant increase in cargo capacity to 144.7 cu.ft., the best-in-class by a wide margin. Seating for 7-9 passengers, depending on configuration, is also improved with additional leg and headroom for second and third-row passengers.
The Suburban is the best SUV on the market for big families with a lot of stuff. It offers the same 5.3L, 6.2L V8, and 3.0L Duramax turbo-diesel engines as the Silverado 1500 for some serious towing capability. Even without the Max Trailering package, the Suburban is rated to tow at least 7,700 lbs, and with Max Trailering, it can reach 8,200 lbs, equaling the capability of entry-level Silverado 1500s.
In addition to improvements to the raw numbers, Chevy continues to emphasize an improved experience for 2021 Suburban drivers. Despite its behemoth size, the Suburban offers some of the most refined driving in its class thanks to available Magnetic Ride Control, which provides rapid, precise adjustments to shock absorbers depending on terrain and driving conditions. This feature allows the Suburban to deliver truck-like performance with sedan-like ride quality. There really is nothing like it.
While the Tahoe hasn’t been around for 85 years like the Suburban, it has been the Suburban’s shorter, less-expensive twin since 1999, and that hasn’t changed for 2021. The only differences are the raw numbers in terms of price and cargo volume. Excellent value retention, cost-to-own ratings, and initial price point make the Tahoe the best choice in the segment because it delivers capability, comfort, and quality on a friendly budget.
The 2021 Tahoe offers the same 5.3L and 6.2L V8 as the Silverado and Suburban, while the 3.0L turbo-diesel engine is slated for late availability on the model. The max towing capacity for this model is 7,900 lbs. So while this vehicle is a bit smaller than the Suburban, it is still plenty capable of pulling some cargo wherever you need to go.
The maximum cargo volume of the new 2021 Tahoe is 122 cu.ft. That’s a considerable increase from the 2020 model, which only had 94.7 cu.ft. Although the 2020 Suburban had the most cargo volume for that model year, the 2021 Chevy Tahoe has even more! All the more reason to love America’s best-selling full-size SUV.
Like the Suburban, the Tahoe offers Magnetic Ride Control for improved handling and comfort; new for 2021 is a segment-exclusive Air Adaptive Suspension to take that even further. The AAS system lowers or raises vehicle height depending on conditions, making it easier to climb in, more efficient on the highway, and better at clearing obstacles off-road.
Both the Tahoe and the Suburban also offer interior options that take them to near-luxury status. A 10.2” infotainment screen makes the intuitive Infotainment 3 system easier to use than ever and makes the nine available camera views easy to see. An available 15” heads-up display is the biggest in class. It puts vital information right where you want it – within your line of sight while you keep your eyes on the road.
The interior is quiet and adorned with high-quality, soft-touch materials for a premium feel and back seat passengers get a mobile movie theater experience with a new Rear Seat Media System. Twin 12.6” LCD touchscreens mounted behind the front seats allow independent entertainment experiences and share integrated functions with the main infotainment screen upfront so all riders can stay connected. Luxury vehicle feel, sedan-like ride quality, truck-like performance, and budget-friendly pricing – what’s not to love about the 2021 Tahoe?
