The fun-to-drive factor is a key strength of any Chevrolet vehicle. This is especially true for the sports cars in the Chevy lineup, like the iconic Camaro and Corvette. Those same vehicles are now being recognized for how much of a joy they are to drive.
The Camaro impressed the panel of judges thanks to its collection of connectivity features and technologies. U.S. News and World Report was also impressed by the amount of power that the 2021 Camaro model was capable of producing: up to 650 horsepower with its most optimized powertrain configuration.
Meanwhile, the recently-redesigned Chevrolet Corvette earned a near-perfect performance score of 9.5 out of 10. The new mid-engine design of the Corvette allows this legendary performance vehicle to rocket from 0 to 60 mph in a mere 2.9 seconds, making it the fastest version of the Corvette to hit the road yet.
If you’d like to get behind the wheel of either of these legendary performance vehicles, you can take the Camaro or Corvette out for a test drive when you stop by Asheville Chevrolet in Asheville, North Carolina.
Graduating from college is a major accomplishment that starts the next phase of your life. Many people, once they leave school, they move into the working world. If you are ready to move on to a new car, you should consider the 2020 Chevrolet Sonic. U.S. News recently named it one of the best new cars for graduates.
To earn a spot on this list, a car needed to be affordable with an MSRP at or below $25,000. It also have to have good reliability, strong safety features, and high-quality technology. All things a young person like yourself is looking for.
The 2020 Chevrolet Sonic ticks all of those boxes and more. It has a starting price of just $16,720 and gives you the flexibility to choose between sedan and hatchback body styles. U.S. News gave it an Overall Score of 8.0 out of 10 thanks to its advanced technology features, spacious interior, and spirited performance.
“For being an inexpensive small car, the 2020 Chevy Sonic is surprisingly fun to drive. The engine is zippy in town and on the highway, and the steering is sharp,” wrote U.S. News & World Report writer Kristen Hall-Geisler. “The Sonic also has an above-average predicted reliability score.”

Car and Driver recently named two Chevrolet models to its list of the Best Used Trucks. This includes the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and the Chevrolet S10 – which was later replaced by the midsize Colorado. Both of these models offer long-term reliability, affordability, and performance, which makes them a smart buy for any car shopper.
Used vehicles have been in especially high demand in recent years. That’s because used models help you avoid the initial depreciation of new cars, and most cars are more reliable than ever before. So, you take less of a risk when buying used than in previous decades. Car and Driver measured criteria ranging from capabilities and reliability to decide that the Chevy Silverado 1500 and the S10 were its top picks for used trucks.
The Silverado 1500 is a top choice among used trucks because it can tow heavy loads, drive in the city without guzzling gas, and it has a wide range of features and trims available. The 4.8-liter and 5.3-liter engine options combine power with fuel economy, and the first-generation Silverado 1500 is an especially good bargain for anyone looking to spend less. Plus, Chevy parts are easy to come by, which means repairs and maintenance won’t cost more than many competitors.
The S10 ZR2 is the predecessor to the Colorado, and it comes with a dedicated off-road design. Between 1994 and 2003, the S10 ZR2 came with a particularly sturdy frame, a tuned suspension (with Bilstein shocks and 31-inch tires), and a 4.3-liter V6 that had an impressive 250 lb-ft of torque. For those who want an affordable, off-road-ready truck, the S10 ZR2 is the way to go. Check out the Colorado for a more recent design that carries over many of the S10 model’s best qualities.

Shopping for a vehicle for a teen driver can be difficult. You have a lot of different factors to consider, one of the most pressing being safety. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety takes out some of the guesswork with its new list of safe vehicles for teens, which names the Chevrolet Equinox one of your best bets.
IIHS pegs the 2016 and newer Chevrolet Equinox as one of the best choices among small SUVs due to its performance in crash testing and Consumer Reports reliability scores. One feature that IIHS doesn’t mention: Teen Driver. This system, standard on newer Equinox models, allows you to promote safe driving habits without being in the car. Teen Driver Technology lets you track your child’s driving performance with an in-vehicle report card that shows you details like maximum speed and how many times Forward Collision Alert technology was engaged.
Beyond safety, the new Chevrolet Equinox is a smart choice because it gives your teen driver as much of what they want as what they need. The Equinox is spacious enough that they can bring along a few friends for an evening out (or do the driving on your next family grocery trip), it offers modern connectivity technology so that they can stay in touch with you, and it’s got a dynamic look that helps them stand out. If you’re shopping for a vehicle that’s safe for teens, Asheville Chevrolet in Asheville, North Carolina, has new, used, and Certified Pre-Owned Equinox SUVs in stock. Bring your budding driver in to see what the Equinox can offer and drive away with the confidence that you’ve made a smart choice.
Of course, due to ongoing limitations, the release of the Tahoe will still be staggered a bit. Chevrolet plans to get base models of the Tahoe out on dealership lots soon, with more high-end models following suit shortly thereafter.
Families in particular will find plenty to love about the latest Chevy Tahoe model. The third row seats have seen some major expansions, with 40 percent more legroom for those passengers. Meanwhile, if families don’t need the rear seats, they can fold them down to open up a maximum of 122.9 cubic feet of cargo space. Combine that with a standard safety suite that includes features like Automatic Emergency Braking and Forward Collision Alert, and it’s not hard to see why the new Tahoe is one of the most highly-anticipated family vehicles of the 2021 model year.
Here at Asheville Chevrolet, we are excited to see this incredible new iteration of the legendary Tahoe start making its way to dealerships like ours in the near future.
