Great New Vehicles
One of the biggest reasons we are proud to offer Chevy SUVs to our customers is the tradition of excellence that Chevrolet has established over the years. Whether you are looking at an all-new model kicking off a new generation for a particular vehicle, or you are interested in a tried and true SUV that is in the midst of its lifecycle, you really cannot go wrong. That is the great thing about a new Chevy SUV: as long as it meets your needs, then it will serve you well. And with so many different models to choose from, you are sure to find the one that perfectly checks all of your boxes and offers you what you are looking for.
2020 Chevy Trax
As a compact crossover and the smallest of the Chevy SUVs, the 2020 Trax is offered in three trim levels. All versions of this petite crossover as powered by the same turbocharged 1.4L 4-cylinder engine that produces 138 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque.

Starting with the base LS, this vehicle comes standard with a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel and height-adjustable driver’s seat.

A 7-speaker Bose sound system has also been added for top-quality sound, and safety features such as forward collision warning help to prevent accidents on the road.
2020 Chevy Equinox
Another petite SUV to look at this year is the Equinox. This compact crossover is available in four various trim levels and two engine choices, which makes it a bit more versatile and customizable than the Trax. It comes standard with a turbocharged 1.5L 4-cylinder engine that pushes out 170 hp and 203 lb-ft of torque. For more strength, you can opt for the turbocharged 2.0L engine that makes 252 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. With a maximum cargo area of 63.9 cubic feet, you’ll have plenty of room for luggage.
Making this model even more attractive to families is the standard safety suite.

With all of these systems working in unison to keep you safe, you won’t have to worry about much.

Finally, the Premier model includes luxury features like heated seats with driver memory settings, a hands-free liftgate, blindspot monitoring, and a wireless charging pad.
2020 Chevy Blazer
The newest addition to the lineup of Chevy SUVs is the 2020 Blazer. This midsize model seats five passengers and offers a maximum cargo area of 64.2 cubic feet. With selectable driving modes and three different powertrains to choose from, this vehicle is ideal for people who enjoy heading off on adventures. You can use Tour, AWD, Sport Mode, Off-Road, or Tow/Haul modes to handle even the most difficult paths. Powered by the standard 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, the LT and 1LT models generate 193 hp and 188 lb-ft of torque. Under the hood of the 2LT and 3LT versions is a turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder motor that makes 230 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The third engine option is the robust 3.6-L V6. Equipped on the RS and Premier models, this powertrain produces 308 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque.
There are four main trims and three sub-trims. The base is known as the L model, which includes xenon headlights, dual-zone climate control, and the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System displayed on a large 8-inch touchscreen. This suite operates with Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a 4G LTE Wifi hotspot. Next is the LT, which is divided into three sub-trims. The 1LT adds tinted windows and satellite radio.

2020 Chevy Traverse
The new Chevrolet Traverse is a full-size model that seats eights and offers a maximum cargo area of 98.2 cubic feet. Available in seven trims, each one shares the same powertrain.

The base L model is well-equipped with the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System. Compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, this interface even comes with a 4G LTE Wifi hotspot and a rearview camera. Next is the LS, which adds backseat tablet mounts with USB ports for charging. Then there’s the LT Cloth trim followed by the LT Leather trim. The main difference is in the upholstery.

The luxurious Premier model includes heated/ventilated seats, a hands-free liftgate, and a wireless charging pad. Finally, the top-tier High Country version comes with a panoramic sunroof and adaptive cruise control.
2020 Chevy Tahoe

Second is a 6.2-liter V8 that pumps out an impressive 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque.
Offered in the same three trims as the Tahoe, there aren’t many differences between the two vehicles aside from the size. The rear-seat entertainment system is ideal for kids, and you can get the upgraded leather upholstery on the mid-level LT model.
2021 Chevy SUVs
Chevy SUVs have a special place in the heart of adventurers and explorers because they have the ability to move people and their things with equal agility. Whether you’re going hiking or camping around the lakes up North, or heading cross state to Buffalo and beyond, an SUV is a fantastic choice. Not only is there plenty of room for luggage, sports equipment, backpacks, tents, and supplies, an SUV provides ample seating for every member of the family.
The biggest, boldest, and most versatile of these family vehicles are the Chevy Tahoe and the Chevy Suburban. With three rows of passengers and a wide variety of trims and options, both have the power to move large groups of passengers anywhere the road might lead. Featuring plenty of cargo room, towing capacity for smaller loads, and forward-thinking safety and convenience technology, it’s easy to see why the Tahoe and Suburban have earned a place of honor in the SUV segment.
Over the years, both vehicles have gained a reputation for their versatility and reliability, making them a welcome addition to the garages of the Capital District's adventurous citizens.
The Chevy Suburban: A Classic Transportation Masterpiece
The first generation of Suburban was produced from 1935 through 1940. It was given the moniker, “the Suburban Carryall,” for its ability to transport just about anything, anywhere. Just like today’s Suburbans, these vehicles had three rows of seating, which could be reconfigured for up to 115.1 cubic feet of storage space. Engines at that time offered a whopping 60-79 horsepower, making the trip to Buffalo an all-day event.
In today’s technologically-advanced age, the cars go faster, and I-90 West cuts down on cross-state travel time. But there are many aspects of the Chevy Suburban that haven’t changed––it can still “carry all.” It still has three rows of seating for up to nine passengers, depending on the trim and seating configuration chosen. It is still a leader in cargo space, with 41.5 cubic feet of cargo space available with all seats occupied. When the second and third row seats are folded, a maximum of 144.7 cubic feet of space opens.
All 2021 models except the High Country trim feature a 5.3L V8 engine that offers 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. A 6.2L V8 comes standard on the top High Country trim, producing 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. Those looking for a diesel option can select a 3.0L turbo diesel inline-6, which gets up to 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque.
Each engine is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. The standard 2021 Suburban is offered as rear-wheel drive, but drivers can opt to add four-wheel drive. Early estimates indicate that a properly-equipped 2021 Suburban will be able to tow over 8,000 pounds, which is perfect for towing a small boat up to Thousand Islands.
The interior of the 2021 Suburban would be almost unrecognizable to a driver of the 1935 model, but it can be a saving grace for those taking long Upstate road trips with an antsy crew. Chevy has installed cutting edge technology in all Suburban models, from the base LS, through the LT, RST, Z71, Premier, and High Country models. Available features include a nine-speaker Bose audio system, wireless phone charging, hands-free power liftgate, auto-dimming rearview mirror, 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and a surround-view camera.
Drivers looking for the ultimate combination of capability, safety, convenience, and comfort will find the Chevrolet Suburban meets most of the needs on their lists. It doesn’t hurt that a Suburban can also provide a comfortable camping spot for an impromptu trip to the Wild Forests or Wilderness areas.
The 2021 Chevy Tahoe: Ready for More
Like the Suburban, the Tahoe is a three row SUV, but it measures and weighs in at smaller dimensions than its larger sibling. Also, like the Suburban, the Tahoe has been completely redesigned for a new generation, due to debut in New York in 2021.
The previous generation Chevy Tahoe was 204 inches in length, while the 2021 model measures in at 210.7 inches. That's an extra three inches of legroom given to the second row and ten more inches for third row passengers. This also means the maximum cargo room ramps up from an impressive 94.7 cubic feet to an exceptional 122.9 cubic feet. How you use that space is up to you: that’s plenty of room for touring antique stores in the Finger Lakes region, collecting goodies along the Upper Hudson Valley Wine Trail or the Troy farmer’s market, or for a wild weekend at Lake Placid.
The Tahoe is also getting a diesel option in 2021. The standard 5.3L V8 engine, which offers 355 horsepower, is joined by an available 6.2L V8, which raises the bar at 420 horsepower. New to the scene is a 3.0L turbo diesel six-cylinder engine, which offers 277 horsepower and 460 lb/ft of torque. All engines are equipped with a ten-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive, though many Upstate NY drivers who crave adventure will choose the four-wheel drive option.
Each of the 2021 Tahoe’s six trim packages is designed to have its own personality, including the no-nonsense LS, the feature-driven LT, and the luxurious RST. Drivers of the Z71 trim will enjoy standard four-wheel drive, 20-inch wheels with all-terrain tires, and a two-speed transfer case, making it a solid choice for extreme sports fans who crave off-road action in the snow and mud. The Premier and High Country trims top the line.
Chevy has been quiet about the comfort features of the 2021 Tahoe, but early reports indicate strategically placed charging ports, premium Bose audio systems, and independent rear-seat entertainment systems are on the table.
It’s easy to see why extreme adventure drivers and those who spend time in the beauty of the lakes and mountains of New York gravitate towards the Chevy Tahoe as a road-trip-ready vehicle. It’s roomy, comfortable, and designed to keep a crowd in good spirits for long stretches.
Drivers looking for a vehicle that can seat the whole family, the entire team, or the full crew need look no further than the Chevy Suburban or Chevy Tahoe. With a new generation being released in 2021, there’s a lot to look forward to, and plenty of surprises in the mix. One thing is for certain: there will be plenty of room for passengers and cargo alike, making either vehicle an ideal match for those who leave the Capital District to see the world on weekends.
