Chevrolet was created in 1911 by American business entrepreneur William Durant and race car driver Louis Chevrolet. In 1919, Alfred Sloan got to work with Chevy’s marketing department and coined the brand’s maxim, “a car for every purse and purpose.” By 1929 Chevrolet surpassed Ford’s output and sales to become America’s top auto manufacturer.
The rivalry between Ford and Chevrolet is old and still rages to this day, each coming up with new innovations every year. Though there has been a lot of back and forth over the decades, however, Chevrolet is clearly the overall winner in the eyes of the American public. Let’s examine some facts: Ford is discontinuing all of its cars in order to focus production on their trucks and SUVs. They still make the Mustang, true, but it was originally inspired by the enormous success of the Chevy Impala. While other brands are sweating over marketing strategy and profit margins, Chevrolet is expanding its lineup and still living by their old, tried, and true maxim, “a car for every purse and purpose.”
Chevy knows how to accommodate car enthusiasts of all interests and has what you are looking for: from rugged off-roading work trucks, big family-hauling SUVs, all-electric futuristic sedans, fuel-efficient/reliable economy cars, and performance cars. This lineup even includes the 2020 mid-engine Corvette capable of going head-to-head with European exotics for a fraction of the price.
Nothing else can match this robust lineup. Chevrolet is the only American auto manufacturer that is reliable enough to go head-to-head with Japanese auto manufacturers, a reputation solidified by countless awards and proven track records of engines going well beyond warranty.
We are the best Chevrolet Certified Pre-Owned and used car dealer in the Northeast! Just like Chevrolet itself, DePaula Chevrolet has won many awards and has a proven track record of success. Awards include Chevrolet Genuine GM Dealer of the Year Award 7-years in a row, Chevrolet Genuine Leader Award (6 times), General Motors Standards of Excellence Leadership Award (7 times), and General Motors Mark of Excellence Award (7 times).
It should be no surprise that our customers drive away with a good experience, but what is amazing is the over 7,500 documented testimonials of happy customers that felt compelled to share this experience and let others know that DePaula Chevrolet is the real deal. We also have an outstanding service department full of certified technicians to take care of your vehicle’s upkeep. We make scheduling appointments easy and will get you in at your convenience. Not that you need to worry, you bought a reliable Chevy from DePaula Chevrolet after all.
We've held a prominent place in New York's automotive landscape since opening our doors in 1985. Customers choose DePaula Chevrolet because of our integrity and transparency, but also because of our vast inventory. We know your time is valuable and that the last thing anyone wants to do is visit multiple dealerships to find the best model at a great price.
While we're incredibly proud of our Chevrolet inventory, you'll find far more than the beloved bowtie on our lot. Our used inventory is designed to meet every need for Albany drivers, whether you're looking for an efficient sedan to handle your commute, a truck that can tackle those DIY projects around the house or a sports car that can make any drive upstate an exciting adventure. You'll find everything you need right here at DePaula Chevrolet, but the perks don't stop there.
Our unmatched selection of used cars, trucks, and SUVs is impressive by the sheer volume, but there's even more to our selection than quantity. We believe in quality over quantity and work diligently to ensure every used model in our inventory meets our stringent quality standards. Our team thoroughly vets every model, assessing its physical condition and mechanical operability to determine its eligibility for a place in the DePaula Chevrolet fleet. This comprehensive vetting process guarantees our Albany customers only have the best to choose from.
We also look at our competition as we evaluate every used model, from SUVs like the Toyota 4Runner and Ford Expedition to sedans like the Honda Civic and Nissan Altima. Why is this important? Our goal is to offer something different and stand out from everyone else, which makes it essential to price our models competitively. But, in true DePaula Chevrolet fashion, we go a step further and offer complete transparency with our pricing, eliminating any doubt that you're getting the best deal in Albany.
Our high-quality standards and transparency are integral to our used inventory, but what models can you expect to find? What does one of the best selections of used cars, trucks, and SUVs in Albany look like? It's a shopper's paradise courtesy of DePaula Chevrolet.
Our shopper's paradise features an incredible selection of SUVs that run the gamut from subcompact and compact crossovers to family-friendly three-row SUVs. Albany commuters will appreciate the versatility of models like the Toyota RAV4, the luxury of the Buick Envision, and the sophistication of the Mazda CX-30. These compact SUVs are renowned for modestly sipping fuel without compromising performance and agility, making them incredibly responsive and fun to drive.
Albany drivers that need something more spacious or capable have plenty of options. Our inventory is constantly updated with midsize SUVs like the renowned BMW X5 and midsize trucks like the Toyota Tacoma, affectionately known as "The Taco" and praised for its exceptional capability on and off the pavement. In addition, our full-size inventory includes best-selling trucks like the Ford F-150, Nissan Titan, and GMC Sierra, with a complement of full-size SUVs that stretch from the GMC Yukon and Ford Expedition to the Toyota Highlander, Hyundai Palisade, and Nissan Pathfinder.
Minivans like the Toyota Sienna, Chrysler Voyager, Honda Odyssey, and Kia Sedona often frequent our fleet, giving Albany families more room to spread out and enjoy the ride. More importantly, these minivans don't look the part of a family hauler, with most featuring bold design details and interior luxuries that liken them to their SUV counterparts. It's a win-win, especially considering the value of investing in a used model with cutting-edge safety features, conveniences, and connectivity tools designed to improve your experience on the wheel.
Albany drivers deserve the best, and that's what you get when you shop with DePaula Chevrolet. We know you have dozens of dealerships to choose from, but you decided to work with our team. That choice deserves celebration and is the inspiration behind our DePaula Pre-Owned Promise.
The DePaula Pre-Owned Promise begins by showing you two critical things. First, you set the pace for your car-buying experience. Second, we're not here to waste your time. It often feels like dealerships try to strong-arm customers, luring them in with gimmicks and then inundating them with high-pressure sales tactics. The approach is outdated and eliminates any excitement about your purchase. Our hassle-free promise begins when you arrive, with our team letting you set the pace without feeling pressured or overwhelmed.
When you're ready to say "yes," to the perfect model, we jump into action to deliver one of the easiest purchase processes in the industry. Your time is valuable, so we're committed to getting you in and out of the dealership as quickly as possible. We do this through our virtual showroom and online tools like our pre-credit approval process. Once you're here, our finance experts operate with integrity and transparency, so they don't waste your time trying to upsell you extra coverage or a package you don't need. Instead, they'll explain your purchase options and the details so you're one step closer to driving home in the vehicle of your dreams.
Our DePaula Pre-Owned Promise is also unique because it starts before you arrive and extends long after your purchase. Every used vehicle must pass our 139-point comprehensive inspection and reconditioning process in our state-of-the-art service center. Then, as part of our inventory, each model comes with a free CARFAX vehicle history report and an internal vehicle history record of any work we did before the sale. After you sign on the dotted line, you'll continue to reap the rewards of our pre-owned promise, which includes one complimentary oil change, free annual New York State inspections, free windshield chip repair, and a 90-day or 4,000-mile comprehensive limited warranty.
Our selection of used Chevrolet cars, trucks, and SUVs is our crown jewel because it lets Albany drivers join the legacy of one of America's most significant automotive pioneers. Chevrolet's early promise to build "a car for every purse and purpose" is prominent everywhere you look, from best-selling trucks like the Silverado to iconic SUVs like the Suburban that introduced the world to a "carryall vehicle" decades ago. We're honored to carry the entire lineup, ensuring our customers have the best from Chevrolet in one convenient location.
So, what can you expect to find on our lot? Chevrolet is renowned for frequently updating its lineup, which makes shopping for used models rewarding. For example, our inventory includes midsize road warriors like the Colorado, an excellent option for Albany drivers that want the capability of a truck without a larger footprint. We also have best-selling models like the Silverado 1500 that set new standards of excellence with functional and versatile components like the multifunctional tailgate that transforms the Silverado into the perfect work partner dedicated to making your job easier. You can also find models with cutting-edge trailering technologies that monitor diagnostics, extend your visibility, and help you navigate the truck and trailer in every condition.
Chevrolet's expansive SUV lineup means you'll find dozens of options on our lot. These models range from the top-selling Equinox, renowned for its versatility, agility, and spaciousness. Its two-row design makes it ideal for individuals, couples, and smaller families in Albany, with its rear cargo area offering a surprising amount of space for everything from luggage and golf clubs to groceries, backpacks, and other gear. Moving up the lineup means getting behind the wheel of larger models like the Blazer, Tahoe, and Suburban. The Tahoe and Suburban are full-size siblings, with the Suburban offering a longer wheelbase that yields more room for cargo and passengers across its three rows. Alternatively, the Tahoe's shorter footprint makes it easier to maneuver, especially in Albany's busy streets, but still gives you three rows of room.
One of the most attractive aspects of shopping for a used Chevrolet is knowing you can get behind the wheel of a sedan like the Malibu or Impala. Once considered a powerhouse, the Impala's incredible reputation makes it a great find as a used model, especially since its discontinuation in 2020. The Malibu, another sedan in the Chevy fleet, is one of Chevrolet's longest-running nameplates, promising premium features, outstanding fuel economy, and turbocharged performance that can transform your commute any day of the week.
At DePaula Chevrolet, our local family-owned business here in Albany, NY, has been around for 35 years, and we have never taken a single day nor customer for granted. Conveniently located off the I-90 on the corners of Central and Everett, you will first notice the parking lots full of potential; your next car could be in there somewhere, and we will be your guide to finding the one you want.
Before you go out and explore, come on into the blue-faced entrance and browse our fabulous showroom and find out from one of our professional sales team members about sales and deals going on to maximize your savings. They will be happy to tell you about current deals, sales, and information about DePaula Chevy’s preferred customer program (which is available to everyone who purchases a new or used vehicle here at DePaula Chevrolet). When you’re ready, they will take you on a tour, or you can go it alone if you need a moment to think privately. Bring your children; we have a play area for kids and free Wi-Fi in all of our waiting areas for anyone.
We are here on the weekends, including the service department, because we understand the workweek can be hectic and doesn’t fit into everybody’s schedule. When you come in for service for your vehicle, we offer shuttle rides and loaner vehicles if we plan to hold on to your vehicle for more than 24 hours. While your vehicle is being serviced, you will get a free car wash, and we will schedule you for a full detail if you are so inclined.
