For decades, the Chevy Suburban has stood out as being one of only a few SUVs that can manage towing trailers and hauling passengers. Though options have grown for handling this multi-tasking feat, the Chevy Suburban and the Chevy Tahoe have ranked among the best used SUVs for towing, according to Kelley Blue Book®.
The Chevy Suburban was engineered to handle itself well. KBB® applauded the SUV for its nine-passenger seating and 137 cubic feet of cargo space with the seats folded. The Suburban was also praised for its heavy-duty suspension and axles, 352-horsepower 6.0-liter V8 engine, and 9,600-pound trailering capability. Plus, KBB pointed out that with a payload of over a ton, the Suburban can easily handle towing a loaded trailer plus passengers and belongings.
KBB also recognized the Chevy Tahoe as one of the best thanks to its dependable and well-built rear axle, which improves the SUV’s off-road performance. With the 5.3-liter V8 engine, the Tahoe can haul a trailer ranging from 7,500-8,200 pounds. As a full-size, three-row SUV, the Tahoe remains a fan favorite among consumers.
If you’re looking for a reliable, affordable used SUV in Fort Worth, Texas, our staff at Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet agrees with KBB that the Chevy Suburban and Tahoe are excellent choices.
Chevy has announced that its popular Blazer SUV will be getting big changes for the 2023 model year, including new styling, new technologies, and additional safety features. Take a look!
The Blazer is already one of the most stylish SUVs on the road, and it’s about to get even better. For 2023, it will have a new grille design, new LED daytime running lamps, new tail lamps, and new available exterior colors. It will also get new 18-, 20-, and 21-inch wheels. Additionally, the Blazer RS will be offered with a Nightshift Blue interior that really stands out.
The refreshed 2023 Blazer SUV is getting more connectivity and infotainment technologies than ever. Wireless charging will be standard at the RS and Premier trim levels, and available at all other trim levels. And to top it off, the high-tech 10-inch touch-screen display will be standard on all models as well.
For 2023, the advanced Chevy Safety Assist package will be standard across the Blazer lineup, featuring technologies like automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, automatic high beams, and lane-keeping assistance. Adaptive cruise control availability will also be expanded to the Blazer 2LT and 3LT.
While Chevrolet has a reputation for its American-made cars, it’s also known for giving back to those who help make America the great nation that it is today. To this end, it recently auctioned off the first retail 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 70th Anniversary Edition at Barrett-Jackson.
Proceeds from the sale of this Corvette went directly to Operation Homefront, a nonprofit that supports American military families. This organization strengthens and assists those that serve our country in a variety of ways. This includes connecting wounded vets with rent-free transitional housing to helping military families in need pay for housing, utilities, and food.
President and CEO of Operation Homefront expressed gratitude for the $3.6M donation. “The proceeds […] will go a long way to helping us help our military families overcome their financial hardships and have the opportunity to thrive in the communities […] they’ve worked so hard to protect.”
This recent auction is just the latest way that Chevrolet is continuing its legacy of sponsoring Operation Homefront. In the past, the automaker has supported the organization financially and donated seven Silverado trucks to the nonprofit.

If you’re looking for a budget-friendly car — whether to use as your main vehicle, a second car for your family, or even a first car for a teen driver — consider a subcompact car or hatchback. Subcompacts are easy to maneuver, super fuel-efficient, and the most affordable cars you can get when you buy used.
KBB.com has released its list of the 10 Best Used Subcompact Cars Under $10,000, and the 2016 Chevy Sonic placed high on the list. KBB noted the availability of different engine options and the technology on the Chevy Sonic that make it a great choice for drivers in search of a small car.
There is a lot to choose from when you buy a used Chevy Sonic. Besides the two engines, which include the base 1.8-liter four-cylinder and an available 1.4-liter turbocharged engine, the 2016 Sonic comes in four trim levels with exciting amenities at every trim.
The base LS trim, for example, delivers convenience with keyless entry, while the LT comes with a 7-inch touch screen. The LTZ trim gets you heated front seats, a feature you might not expect on a small, affordable car. And the highest trim, the RS, adds leather seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel for a luxurious touch.
If you’d like to learn more about the Chevy Sonic or any other used car, contact our team at Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet in Fort Worth, Texas.
U.S. News & World Report’s list of the “12 Most Comfortable SUVs of 2021” included two Chevrolet vehicles, affirming the automaker’s dedication towards building family-friendly vehicles that emphasize a welcoming, cozy, and convenient interior.
2021 Chevrolet Suburban
This full-size SUV offers up to 144.7 cubic feet of cargo space. But its ample room wasn’t the only thing attracting it to the judges at U.S. News. Soft-touch surfaces complete with metal accents give the SUV a modern yet comfortable atmosphere. Meanwhile, Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, and an available 4G LTE® Wi-Fi Hotspot help keep everyone entertained on long trips.
2021 Chevrolet Traverse
The 2021 Traverse is a mid-size SUV that impressed the judges with its spacious seats across all three rows and its best-in-class cargo space, which is up to 98.2 cubic feet. The Traverse can tow up to 5,000 pounds and still achieves 18 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway, ensuring that you and your family won’t be making constant stops to refuel.* The hidden storage within the 2021 Traverse reduces clutter and adds convenience while the available hands-free power liftgate makes it easier than ever for busy parents to load and unload the cargo area.
Here at Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet, the Chevy Suburban and Tahoe are two of our best-selling vehicles. What our customers may not realize is just how quickly the “RST” models of these vehicles are driven off the lot after arriving.
By comparison, the average time that a new vehicle spends on a dealership lot is about 60 days. The Tahoe RST and Suburban RST manage to sell out much faster than that.
So, what makes the RST trims of both vehicles so desirable? With exclusive features like a monochromatic Black grille with Black Ice accents and 22-inch bright machined high-gloss Black-painted aluminum wheels, these models give both the Suburban and Tahoe a sleek and streamlined look.
Others versions of the Chevy Suburban and Tahoe have also managed to sell very well. During the fourth quarter of last year, Chevrolet sold 28,698 units of the Tahoe, a sales increase of 36.1 percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2019. The Suburban also saw a sales increase of 32.56 percent for a total of 13,577 units sold in 2020’s fourth quarter.
If you want a Chevrolet Tahoe RST or Suburban RST, we suggest you stop by Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet and pick up one of your own before they sell out.
If you need a heavy-duty truck, you deserve something that you can depend on to help make your work easier. Recently, the Chevrolet Silverado HD was ranked the most dependable truck in the Large Heavy Duty pickup segment as part of the J.D. Power 2021 Vehicle Dependability Study.
To name the winners in this study, J.D. Power surveyed owners of three-year-old vehicles and asked them to report any defects or problems that they may have noticed since their purchase. J.D. Power asked about more than 177 various problems, including technology issues and mechanical malfunctions.
While many newer vehicles are having fewer and fewer mechanical issues with features like the engine, brakes, and transmission, the Chevrolet Silverado HD earned its top marks from its high-performing technology. The Silverado HD comes well-equipped with cutting-edge tech and is available with advanced trailering and safety features.
This J.D. Power award applies to three-year-old models; however, we’re sure that you can expect the same level of dependability from new models like the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado HD. This truck has a maximum available towing capacity of 36,000 pounds. It also boasts some innovative technology, including 15 available camera views and an available Advanced Trailering System that allows you to create multiple trailer profiles and run through a pre-departure checklist.
Chevrolet’s impeccable slate of powerful pickups is unparalleled by any competitor in the industry, and many publications are taking notice. The manufacturer’s entire lineup of trucks was recently honored by one of the most trusted names in automotive journalism.
U.S. News & World Report, a highly recognized resource for those researching new and used vehicles, recently compiled a list of the top diesel trucks of the year. In an unsurprising move, Chevy’s 2021 Silverado 1500, Colorado, and Silverado HD all landed a spot on the outlet’s list of “The 11 Best Diesel Pickup Trucks of 2021.”
The Silverado family of pickups is no stranger to accolades, and its array of diesel engine options made it a perfect candidate for recognition on U.S. News & World Report’s list. The Silverado 1500’s Duramax® diesel powertrain is brawny enough to produce 460 lb-ft of torque, while its tougher HD sibling comes with a 6.6-liter Turbo-Diesel V8 that delivers a best-in-class towing capacity of 36,000 pounds.
Chevy’s light-duty pickup option, the 2021 Colorado, is certainly no slouch. When equipped with the 2.8-liter diesel engine, the Colorado has an output of 181 horsepower and reaches its highest towing capacity.

Both the Midnight Edition and the Sport Package have been in high demand on models currently offered with these customizations. Roughly 20 percent of all Chevy Trax crossovers that are sold have one of the two options. Since customers seem to appreciate the choices, Chevy is making both available for the popular, three-row Traverse SUV.
Drivers can opt for the Midnight Edition on Traverse LS and LT trims. The package includes black exterior accents like black wheels, roof rails, and badging, plus a Black Ice grille. This is on top of the sleek and dark color palette of the Mosaic Black Metallic Traverse. The LS and LT trim levels are also available with the Sport Package, which shares the same black accents as the Midnight Edition, but comes in a number of exterior colors.
RS trims have also proven to be popular among shoppers buying crossovers and SUVs. Chevy has sold 140,000 RS models since the trim debuted in 2018, many of them Trailblazer and Blazer crossovers. Because of its popularity, the 2022 Equinox will have an RS trim option, as well.
