Newton Chevrolet GMC isn’t your average dealership, and that’s a difference worth celebrating. Think about the last time you purchased a vehicle. Did you spend hours haggling over the price or dodging pushy salespeople as you attempted to find the perfect model? More often than not, the excitement fades as a customer begins the car-buying process because dealerships don’t give them a reason to get excited. Instead, they immediately put customers on the defensive by employing outdated sales tactics that focus on commissions rather than customers.

Shopping for the perfect vehicle typically means investing a lot of time, initially browsing online before visiting various dealerships to get a feel for your options and narrow your search.

Why Shop for a Chevy SUV?

Chevrolet’s lineup of SUVs has something for everyone, from models like the Trailblazer, Equinox, and Blazer to the Traverse, Tahoe, and Suburban. However, there’s far more to Chevrolet than its lineup. When you purchase a Chevy SUV, you’re investing in the legacy of one of America’s greatest automotive pioneers.

That legacy began in the 1900s when Louis Chevrolet and William C. Durant founded the company with the dream of making high-performance cars accessible to Americans. By making them powerful and affordable, Chevrolet struck gold and established itself as a critical player in the race to put the world on wheels. Over the years, Chevrolet’s keen insight and ingenuity have given us everything from the legendary small-block V8 to speed demons like the Corvette and family haulers like the Tahoe and Suburban.

By purchasing a Chevy SUV, you’re investing in this ingenuity and that of General Motors, Chevrolet’s parent company. The partnership has defined the automotive landscape for decades, with one contributing to the other’s success and the constant pursuit of excellence. Like Chevrolet, General Motors has made a vast impact and introduced countless firsts, like the industry’s first lacquer paint system, the first commercial-grade air conditioner, the first mechanical open-heart surgery heart pump, and more modern innovations like the multifunctional tailgate and the market’s first extended-range electric vehicles.

If ingenuity is at the heart of Chevrolet, then its customers are its soul. Chevrolet consistently exceeds our expectations with its innovations and commitment to constantly evolving its lineup. As a result, you’re not solely buying a Chevy SUV but investing in a brand that’s defined the American landscape since automobiles replaced the trusty steed.

Meet the Trailblazer

Before the Trailblazer debuted as a midsize SUV, Chevrolet introduced the TrailBlazer name as a top-tier trim on the popular S-10 Blazer. The TrailBlazer replaced the LT trim and introduced new technology and luxuries, from a CD player and OnStar to a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated leather front seats, a power sunroof, and a Bose premium sound system. It transformed the Blazer into an opulent SUV and made enough of an impression that Chevrolet gave the TrailBlazer a place in the lineup in 2002.

The TrailBlazer made a solid first impression, especially with Chevrolet generating interest in the model by introducing performance-oriented trims like the TrailBlazer SS with its potent V8 engine, all-wheel drive, and undeniable need for speed. Even so, the Traverse replaced the TrailBlazer in 2009, but that wasn’t the end for the SUV. Chevrolet rekindled the nameplate in 2019, debuting the next iteration of the Trailblazer as a 2021 model.

With a slight adjustment to its name, the Trailblazer returns to open arms as Chevrolet gives drivers a stylish and sophisticated option in the fiercely competitive segment of small SUVs. While its rivals force drivers to compromise on style, performance, and affordability, the Trailblazer delivers it all across a diverse lineup and multiple powertrains that are befitting of a midsize SUV. Moreover, Chevrolet adds incredible value by equipping the Trailblazer with the latest technologies and conveniences that engineer one of the best user experiences in the segment.

Meet the Equinox

For years, the SUV segment adopted a “bigger is better” mentality, and while that’s certainly acceptable, not everyone needs a full-size SUV. Automakers like Chevrolet recognized as much and helped ignite a shift in the industry by introducing midsize crossovers like the Equinox. Debuting in 2005, the Equinox proved ideal for individuals, couples, and small families because of its spacious cabin and agile handling.

While these characteristics made the Equinox an early favorite in the lineup, Chevrolet saw room for improvement. Since the Equinox’s debut, the automaker has continuously improved the SUV's design, powertrain lineup, and packaging to deliver more value to drivers. The result is exceptional and has made the Equinox the second-best-selling vehicle in the Chevy lineup, positioning it behind the ever-popular Silverado.

Among the Equinox’s many upgrades was a reclassification as a compact crossover in 2018. With a smaller footprint and Chevy’s proven powertrains, the Equinox is remarkably efficient, agile, and engaging to drive. It handles less like an SUV and more like a sedan, giving it a distinct appeal among commuters who appreciate the higher driving position without the gas-guzzling tendencies of an SUV. Moreover, Chevrolet isn’t shy about updating the Equinox with modern design details, luxuries, conveniences, and advanced technologies. These updates and the Equinox’s diverse trim lineup make it one of the easiest to customize to your style and performance needs without going over budget.

Meet the Blazer

Automakers often reintroduce old nameplates, reviving the models with a modern twist that fits within the current market. We’ve seen this with the Trailblazer and again with the Blazer, which found its first home in the Chevy lineup in the late 1960s when it was a bare-bones off-road adventurer slated to compete with the Ford Bronco. The Blazer gave the Bronco a run for its money, with its larger cabin adding to its versatility and appeal. Even so, the Blazer eventually ran its course, with Chevrolet adding the TrailBlazer to the lineup and rebranding the Blazer as the Tahoe in the mid-1990s.

Although the Blazer lost its place in the Chevy lineup, it wasn’t forgotten. Chevrolet reintroduced the model as a midsize crossover in 2019, giving it an entirely different identity. Instead of a rugged adventurer with a penchant for exploration, the newest iteration of the Blazer shares styling cues with the Camaro and has an undeniable appetite for speed and surprising thrills along winding backroads. It’s a transformation of epic proportions, and it’s one that’s been well-received.

Positioned between the Equinox and Traverse, the Blazer is sporty and sophisticated with bold design details, sleek lines, and a distinct silhouette. Its trim lineup ensures there’s a model for everyone, with customization options that add unique wheels and a long list of amenities, like a panoramic sunroof and heated front and rear outboard seats. There’s also loads of technology in the Blazer’s digital cockpit, ensuring you stay connected and informed while navigating the road.

Meet the Traverse

One of the most impressive aspects of Chevy’s SUV lineup is that there are multiple three-row options. As a full-size crossover, the Traverse is the smallest of these and was introduced in 2009 to succeed the TrailBlazer and complement the larger Tahoe and Suburban. By blending the functional features of full-size models like the Tahoe, design cues from the popular Malibu sedan, and the efficiency of a crossover, the Traverse carved its niche in the lineup.

Like the rest of Chevy’s SUVs, the Traverse has only improved with age. Chevrolet introduced the second-generation Traverse in 2018, updating its style to include bolder details that give it a sleek and sophisticated aesthetic. These design cues accentuate the Traverse’s impressive interior, which blends form and function as it offers seating for up to eight and a host of features to optimize everyone’s comfort. You’ll find these characteristics everywhere you look, from the split-folding second-row seat or the second-row captain’s chairs to the spacious third-row seat that can comfortably accommodate your passengers.

The Traverse also distinguishes itself because it proves drivers no longer have to sacrifice sport-like handling, efficiency, or style in a three-row SUV. Instead, Chevrolet promises and delivers it all. Special edition packages black out the Traverse’s design and add red accents, while top-tier trims add next-level luxury with leather seating, premium materials, and exclusive wheel designs.

Meet the Tahoe and Suburban

Although Chevrolet didn’t know it then, the automaker made history in 1935 when it introduced the Carryall Suburban. Recognized as one of the first SUVs in the industry, the Suburban has evolved into an incredible family hauler that shares the spotlight with its smaller full-size sibling, the Tahoe, which debuted in the early 1990s. Together, the duo accommodates every passenger and cargo-hauling need by offering seating for eight and expansive cabins that don’t force you to compromise on passenger comfort for the sake of your cargo.

As siblings, the Tahoe and Suburban share many similarities, like technologies, design details, and features, but they have distinct personalities on the road. For example, the Tahoe sits on a shorter frame but often comes with the same powertrain as the Suburban. While the power output is comparable, the Tahoe’s smaller size makes it more agile and easy to maneuver than the longer and heavier Suburban. Additionally, the Suburban’s larger footprint adds to its cargo capacity, making it ideal for larger families that haul a lot of cargo like groceries, luggage, camping gear, and other equipment.

These distinct differences make choosing between the Tahoe and Suburban straightforward, allowing you to focus on cargo capacities and trailering capability. How so? As part of the Chevy fleet, the models share the same features, from safety and driver assist to connectivity and entertainment technologies. Likewise, the interior design elements are similar, with the trims offering a progressive suite of features that add value and a distinct appeal to each model.
