Our lot is stocked with several Chevy cars such as the Spark, Sonic, Cruze, Malibu, and Impala. You can choose from a four-door sedan or a hatchback body style, depending on your needs. The most economical choices are the Sonic and Spark models, which are both hatchbacks and are very affordable options. The Spark offers a surprising 27.2 cubic feet of storage space in the rear, and the Sonic nearly doubles that with an available cargo area of 47.7 cubic feet. Both vehicles can seat five-passenger comfortably, and they have cool tech features such as the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System to keep you entertained along the way.
The Cruze, Malibu, and Impala are the four-door sedans in the lineup. The main differences between these rides are the engine options and safety features. The Impala is the largest, and it has the most powerful engine. It can be equipped with a 3.6L V6 engine that uses direct injection and variable valve timing to generate 305 horsepower. The mid-level Malibu can be equipped with a 2.0L turbocharged ECOTEC engine that pushes out 250 horsepower. Lastly, the smallest sedan, the Cruze, has an available 1.6L turbodiesel that gets an amazing fuel economy set at 31 mpg city and 48 mpg highway.
Sticking with the car class, Chevy also has two electric vehicles that are great for city driving. They are known as the Volt and the Bolt EV. The Volt uses a 1.5L direct-injection engine mated with two electric motors. Essentially, it’s a plug-in hybrid that has a driving range of about 420 miles. If you run out of gas, don’t worry. It can run for up to 53 miles on stored electricity.
On the other hand, Chevy also has the fully-electric Bolt EV. This innovative ride can drive for 238 miles on a single charge. With the DC Fast Charging cable, you can replenish the battery with up to 90 miles in just 30 minutes. You should also note that both of these eco-friendly vehicles are subject to a tax credit at the end of the year.
If you are looking for an SUV, Chevy is well-known for these. With six crossovers to choose from, you can opt for the Trax, Equinox, Blazer, Traverse, Tahoe, or Suburban. The Trax is the most compact model in the Chevy family. It can seat five passengers, and it has a maximum cargo area of 48.4 cubic feet. Under the hood is a 1.4L turbocharged ECOTEC engine that has a fuel economy set at 28 mpg combined (26 city/31 highway). The newest SUV model in the lineup is the Blazer. This mid-level crossover seats five people and has a maximum cargo area of 64.2 cubic feet. There are two engines to choose from. If you opt for the 3.6L V6, it will push out 308 horsepower and get about 26 mpg on the highway. For large families looking for a land whale to transport everyone where they need to go, the Suburban is a solid pick. This beast can carry up to nine passengers, and it has a maximum storage area of 121.7 cubic feet. You can fill it up! Powered by a magnanimous 5.3L V8 engine, the Suburban produces 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. It can also tow up to 8,300 pounds without breaking a sweat.
All of the Chevy SUV models can be equipped with numerous safety features, including forward collision alert, side blind zone alert, lane departure warning, rear park assist, rear cross-traffic alert, and more.

2020 Chevy Equinox
Another compact crossover that we offer here at DePaula Chevy is the 2020 Equinox. With seating for five and a maximum cargo area of 63.9 cubic feet, this one is a bit bigger than the Trax. If you like to travel, this may be the best choice for you.
There are two engine options for the Equinox. The standard powertrain features a turbocharged 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Generating 170 hp and 203 lb-ft of torque, it has an estimated fuel economy set at 28 MPG combined (26 city/31 highway). If you want something with a little more power, you can always opt for the turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine. This one uses a 9-speed automatic transmission and produces 252 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. It also comes with Tow/Haul mode, allowing it to pull 3,500 pounds. FWD is standard, but you can also opt for AWD. This is the best option if you want to pull a trailer.
Offered in four trim levels, you can find the perfect match. The base L model comes with keyless ignition/entry, forward collision warning, a rearview camera, emergency braking, lane-departure warning, pedestrian detection, and automatic high beams. The infotainment interface is displayed on a 7-inch touchscreen and operates with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, and a 4G LTE Wifi hotspot.

A wireless charging pad helps to keep the cabin clear of clutter, and the hands-free power liftgate makes it easy to load up the back of the vehicle. You may also add options such as a Bose stereo system and a 360-degree parking camera system.
2020 Chevy Blazer
If you need a vehicle that is bigger than a compact crossover but smaller than a full-size SUV, then you might like the 2020 Chevy Blazer. While it still seats five people, it has much more cargo room. Behind the back row, you will find 30.5 cubic feet of space. To access more room, simply fold down the rear seats to expand the area to a maximum of 74.2 cubic feet.
With available powertrains to choose from, you have more freedom with this vehicle too. On the L and LT trims, you will find a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine under the hood. This motor produces 193 hp and 188 lb-ft of torque, and it has a stellar fuel economy set at 24 MPG combined (21 city/27 highway). The second option is equipped on the 2LT and 3LT trims. It’s a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder that generates 230 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The third option is a 3.6-liter V6 engine on the RS and Premier trims. Producing 308 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque, it has an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 21 MPG combined (19 city/26 highway). Keep in mind that all of these powertrains are equipped with a 9-speed automatic transmission and FWD (AWD is optional). Opting for the V6 engine will give you the ability to tow up to 4,600 pounds when your model is properly equipped.
The base L trim features high-tech systems like dual-zone climate control, rear air vents, and keyless ignition/entry. The infotainment interface gets a smaller 5-inch touchscreen, but it still operates with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, and a 4G LTE Wifi hotspot. Dual USB ports are provided as well as two USB-C ports. Rolling on 18-inch wheels, it comes standard with heated side mirrors and LED lighting.
Next, the LT trim adds power-adjustable front seats and a 6-speaker sound system. Also included in this model are tinted windows and satellite radio. This trim branches off into two sub-trims as well; the 2LT adds the turbocharged engine, and the 3LT builds off of that by adding heated leather seats, remote start technology, blindspot monitoring, rear parking sensors, and rear cross-traffic alert. This sub-trim also adds roof rails and a power liftgate to the exterior.
The mid-level RS trim is the sporty version of the Blazer. It’s got a 110-volt household-style outlet, an extra set of USB ports, a restyled driver information cluster, and relaxing ambient lighting. The best part about this model is that it also comes with a heated steering wheel and a navigation system. Riding on larger 20-inch wheels, this athletic model gets dual exhaust tips, a blackened grille, and a hands-free liftgate.
Lastly, the Premier version adds heating to all of the seats and is decked out in chrome accents from the outside. It also added ventilation to the front seats and driver memory settings.

Added safety features include lane-departure warning, a surround-view camera system, lane-departure mitigation, emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control.
Another area that Chevy is well-known for is its trucks. Featuring the Colorado and the popular Silverado, these workhorses are capable of performing under pressure. The Colorado can manage a payload of 1,578 pounds, and it can haul up to 7,700 pounds. There are three engines to choose from, including a turbodiesel that has a best-in-class fuel economy set at 30 mpg highway. The Silverado is better than ever before with a best-in-class bed width and length for optimized payload control and management. It even has 12 standard tie-downs with a maximum weight of 500 pounds per corner for you to secure any items in the back. The tailgate on the Silverado is a power up/down tailgate that allows you to release it with the simple push of a button. The truck bed is constructed out of roll-formed, high-strength steel, making it stronger and lighter weight than ever before. You can choose from four various engines and eight trim levels to ensure that you get the right truck to suit your needs. This model even comes with a trailering system that can help you hitch a trailer and keep it steady along the way.

2020 Chevrolet Silverado Overview
If you are searching for the perfect light-duty pickup truck, look no further than the 2020 Chevy Silverado. With three body styles and a trio of bed lengths to choose from, you’ll be very impressed with this sophisticated beast.
Customization is no problem here either. With five engines to pick from, you can be certain that your truck will fit your needs. First is a turbocharged 2.7L engine standard on the LT and RST models.

Featuring vinyl upholstery and rubber flooring, it’s easy to hose out mud, dirt, or drink spills. Don’t let the name fool you into thinking this is a bare-bones vehicle. It comes with the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System that is displayed on a 7-inch touchscreen monitor. Using advanced systems such as Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, you can enjoy hands-free calling and seamless audio/app integration. However, there is one hangup about this model. The stereo only comes with two speakers.
If that’s an issue for you, you can take a half-step up to the Custom model. It comes with a 6-speaker stereo system. Next is the rugged Custom Trail Boss model, which gets several off-roading enhancements like a 2-inch suspension lift. This comes in handy when you need to drive over rocks or rough terrain.

Premier Chevy Service Department for Clifton Park
As a top-rated Chevy dealership in Clifton Park, NY, DePaula Chevy offers all sorts of services for your vehicle. From routine maintenance to major repairs, we can help you get back on the road in a timely manner. Here are some of the services we offer:
Tire rotations should be performed regularly on your vehicle. It would be best if you also had the tire aligned and the wheels balanced at the appropriate times. Without good tires and straight wheels, you won’t be getting anywhere - except maybe a ditch.
Spinning out of control or blowing a tire are two things that everyone wants to avoid. By checking the tire pressure regularly, you can prevent these dangerous incidences altogether. If you’re ever planning on taking a road trip, it is a good idea to go ahead and have our technicians align your wheels and balance your tires. It is always a good idea to make sure your vehicle is all set before taking it on a long trip.
Part of routine maintenance is having the oil in your vehicle changed. This typically needs to be done every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations. You can check the owner’s manual to see the specifics about your model. Our technicians perform oil changes daily. We can get it done quickly and efficiently so that you can get back to your regularly scheduled life ASAP.
Another inconvenience that our technicians see all the time is dead car batteries. If you have jump-started your vehicle one too many times and it's no longer holding a charge, that means it is time for a new battery. Our mechanics can perform this service relatively quickly and have you back on the road in no time. We can also check on the battery life if you think your vehicle is overdue for a new battery, but you are not too sure.
Your vehicle most likely has two types of air filters. One is for the engine, and the other is for the cabin. Both need to be changed regularly to ensure that you (and the engine) are breathing in clean, high-quality air. Generally, our technicians will check the air filters during regularly scheduled maintenance. These filters do not always need to be changed every time you get your oil changed. However, it doesn’t hurt to check. No one wants to breathe in polluted air from crowded cities. Changing the air filters, when needed, can help improve cabin and engine air quality and keep you breathing easy.
If you have noticed a slowed response from your vehicle while braking or you have started hearing weird sounds every time you press the brake pedal, you need to have the brake checked immediately. This is not something that you can put off. While our mechanics check on the braking system during routine maintenance, sometimes brake components need some attention between routinely scheduled maintenance. Whether its the brake pads, the fluid level, or the tubes, our highly-skilled technicians can identify the source of the problem and repair it quickly.
Did you get into a fender bender? Don’t worry! Our mechanics might be able to fix the damage to the body of your vehicle. Dents can usually be pulled out, and only you will know that they were ever there. For more extensive bodywork from a major accident, there may be a lot more involved in the process than pulling out a few dents. Schedule an appointment online or give us a call. We will get you in and see what we can do.
Engine and Other Major Repairs
If something has gone amiss with your engine, there may be a chance that we can fix it. This also applies to other essential parts of the vehicle, such as the transmission, radiator, etc. To give you an accurate estimate of the time and cost of the repairs, you will need to bring your vehicle in for us to take a peek.
If you have a Chevy vehicle, then you should certainly bring it to us for any replacement parts that are needed. We use OEM parts to ensure you get nothing but the best. After-market parts and accessories can sometimes cause more harm than good, so we don’t use them. We want to make sure that your vehicle stays in good working order for as long as possible.
Chevy Detailing Clifton Park
Do you want to make your vehicle look and feel new again? We’ve got just the thing to help you! Our Detailing Service was created to make your car, truck, SUV, or van sparkle and shine once again.
