Camaro

AutoPacific found that the Chevy Camaro is the most satisfying sporty car. Owners appreciated the Camaro’s stylish paint options and exterior design. On the inside, the car received high marks for having easy-to-understand controls, great driver’s seat adjustability, and a sizeable center screen. And, of course, it provided great braking and responsive handling.

Colorado

Topping the compact pickup category, the Chevy Colorado earned praise for its intuitive center touch screen, exterior design, solid visibility from the driver’s seat, and easy-to-use controls. This truck also was recognized for being fun to drive, providing plenty of power and acceleration.

Blazer

The Blazer was named the top premium mid-size crossover SUV. It’s easy to get in and out of, has a conveniently adjustable driver’s seat, and provides a comfortable ride. Plus, owners noted that the SUV has a sporty style and is fun to drive thanks to a pair of great engine options.

Two Chevy Pickups Named Best Used Trucks Under $10,000

If you’re in the market for a used pickup truck, Car and Driver has got you covered. The respected magazine has put together a list of the “Best Used Trucks for under $10,000,” and we’re happy to report that the first two models featured were both from Chevrolet.

One of these is the Chevrolet S10 ZR2, which, if you’re a truck enthusiast, you might recognize as one of the icons of 1990s off-roaders. It hasn’t been in production since 2005, but it’s spiritually succeeded by the Chevy Colorado ZR2, which is even more capable than the S10 ever was and a top-notch choice for used pickup shoppers.

C&D’s other top candidate is the first-generation Chevrolet Silverado 1500. It was praised for its reliable 4.8-liter and 5.3-liter V8 engines, for the easy accessibility to parts should anything happen, and for its “class-leading smooth ride and comfortable interior.” The current-generation Silverado 1500 ranks among the bestselling vehicles in the country, but if you’re shopping on a budget, any used Silverado 1500 is worthy of your consideration.

It’s clear that when buying used, it pays off to go with Chevrolet. Get a closer look at our extensive lineup of used Chevrolet models at ELCO Chevrolet Cadillac in Ballwin, Missouri, and ask any of our associates about our top deals!

The Chevrolet Colorado is getting a number of changes for the 2021 model year, including a bold new exterior design, additional options, and a new trim level, among other things. No matter which version you choose, this sporty midsize truck offer exceptional value, durability, and capability.

The Colorado will have a new base trim level called the Work Truck, which is perfect if you want a practical truck that is designed for towing and hauling. There are also standard 17-inch wheels as well as three new custom colors: Cherry Bomb Tintcoat, Dune Metallic, and Pow Zinga Metallic. You’ll find more prominent exterior badging and skid plates as well.

“We believe Colorado will remain very competitively priced in the mid-size truck segment and will see continued strong sales fueled by its fresh new look,” said Chevy spokesperson Chris Bonelli.

Other new features for 2021 include three new appearance packages. There’s a WT Appearance Package, Custom Special Edition, and Chrome Appearance Package. Features include an available 4×4 powertrain, body-colored door handles and mirrors, and available 18-inch Dark Argent Metallic cast aluminum wheels. The Chrome Appearance Package has chrome on the grille, door handles, rear bumper, and beltline molding. The new Colorado is not only engineered for performance, but it will also help you make a statement wherever you go.

We look forward to seeing you here at ELCO Chevrolet when the 2021 Colorado finally launches later this year.
