Chevy SUVs: 7 Great Options

A couple is walking towards a blue 2021 Chevy Trax that is shown from the side and parked on a Lexington street.

One of the fantastic things about the lineup of SUVs you’ll find at your local Chevy dealer is that there’s really something for everyone. For example, if you’re looking for a small SUV that has a lot of interior cargo space and great towing potential, then you should buy a 2020 Chevy Equinox because it will meet those needs. On the other hand, if you’re looking for something smaller, and want to save some money while still getting a sporty driving experience and a great amount of interior space, then the all-new Trailblazer is probably the one for you.

With so many fantastic options to choose from, however, it can be tricky to decide on which one is just right. So we thought it might help to take a quick look at the seven new SUVs you’ll find at your Chevy dealer and give you a quick sense of what each one has to offer. This won’t be completely comprehensive because there’s just too much good stuff here to detail it all, but you should be able to make some decisions based on this information. Of course, if you want to know even more, then give us a call at Dan Cummins Chevrolet Buick of Georgetown today or swing by for a visit if you are in the Lexington area.

The 2021 Chevy Trax

In looking at the lineup of new SUVs you’ll find at your Chevy dealer, going from smallest interior cargo space to largest, we begin with the 2021 Trax. The Trax is a great choice if you are interested in an SUV, but you really don’t have room in your life for too much vehicle. Due to its smaller size – this is a compact crossover model – it has just 48.4 cu.ft. of total interior cargo space and seating for up to five people.

That being said, it’s still a solid option if that size really works for you. All-wheel drive is available if you need something to handle rougher terrain or poor weather, and it has great fuel efficiency for a standard-engine SUV. It also has ten airbags and a number of terrific safety features available to protect you and your loved ones.

The 2021 Chevy Trailblazer

This is an all-new model for 2021, and one that a lot of people are excited about – including us. The Trailblazer is the perfect option if you’re looking for a small crossover SUV and want to save some money because it has the lowest starting price of any SUV you’ll find at your Chevy dealer. The Trailblazer starts at just $19,000 – even the compact Trax starts off at $21,300.

Even though it’s a small model, you still get more than 54 cu.ft. of interior cargo space inside the Trailblazer, with seating for up to five people. All-wheel drive is available if that’s something you’re looking for, and much like the Trax, it has ten airbags and a number of great safety features available for you to choose from. In fact, given its low price and surprisingly spacious interior, this is a model we’re quick to suggest for anyone looking for a small SUV.

The 2020 Chevy Equinox

The last of the three small or compact options before we get to the midsize models, the 2020 Chevy Equinox is a great option for a lot of people. Even though this is a “small” crossover, much like the Trailblazer, it actually gives you significantly more interior cargo space than the other model. You get nearly 64 cu.ft. of interior cargo area with the Equinox, which is 10 cu.ft. more than in the Trailblazer.

This Equinox still has seating for five people – you need to check out a midsize or larger option for more seating – and offers great fuel economy. Plus, with the Equinox, you can get up to 3,500 lbs of towing capacity when properly equipped. That makes this a terrific option if you need plenty of room inside and great towing options but still want a small model.

The 2021 Chevy Blazer

The 2021 Blazer is the first of the two midsize SUVs that you’ll find at your Chevy dealer this year and one that has lost a bit of its identity. While it’s a fine option, it does lack much reason to choose it over the other models available. Even though it’s a midsize SUV, it only has just 64.2 cu.ft. of interior cargo space – barely more than what you can get with the Equinox.

However, the Blazer does give you up to 4,500 lbs of towing capacity when properly configured. As you can see, that’s a good 1,000 lbs more than you can get with the Equinox, which is one of this model’s great strengths. So if you need more towing than the Equinox can manage, and the Blazer checks all of your boxes, then it is a terrific choice.

The 2020 Chevy Traverse

The second midsize option in the Chevy lineup is significantly larger than what we’ve seen so far. The 2020 Traverse is a three-row midsize SUV, which gives you seating for up to eight people – though some models have seating for seven instead. With its larger size, you get over 98 cu.ft. of interior cargo space available inside the Traverse, which is a huge amount compared to the Blazer or Equinox.

This larger, more powerful SUV also has a bit more towing capacity – up to 5,000 lbs when properly configured. That’s not quite as significant of an improvement over the Blazer compared to its interior space, but it is still more. Overall, if you need a lot of seating but don’t want to go for a large SUV, then the Traverse is an excellent choice.

The 2021 Chevy Tahoe

Both of the full-size SUVs at your Chevy dealer received a major overhaul this year and are the start of a new generation. The all-new 2021 Chevy Tahoe is bigger than ever before and has a selection of fantastic options and features available. Its large size gives you seating for up to nine passengers, though some models have seats for seven or eight, depending on the trim and options you are viewing.

With this beast, you get nearly 123 cu.ft. of interior cargo space, which is almost double what you find inside the Chevy Equinox and Blazer. It also has an amazing 6.2L V8 engine available that gives you 420 hp and makes for a truly fantastic driving experience. And with new trims to choose from, including the off-road Z71, the Tahoe is better than ever before.

The 2021 Chevy Suburban

The all-new 2021 Chevy Suburban has also received major overhauls on the same level as the Tahoe. This is the largest SUV you’ll find at your Chevy dealer and offers an amazing 144.7 cu.ft. of interior cargo space. That’s more than double what you get in the Equinox or Blazer, and it’s almost exactly triple the interior cargo space you find in the 2021 Chevy Trax.

You get the same amazing trim options with the Suburban as you do the Tahoe, including the off-road-focused Z71 and the legendary High Country for optimal sophistication and luxury. With a new independent rear suspension, available Magnetic ride control, and available first-in-class four-corner air ride adaptive suspension, the all-new Suburban offers a driving experience that is unlike anything you’ll find elsewhere.
