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.
Initially available in Work Truck and RST trims, the Silverado EV will boast up to 400 miles of range on GM’s new Ultium Platform, giving you more freedom to go anywhere. When it’s connected to a DC fast charger, the Silverado EV can recoup 100 miles of range in just 10 minutes.
It’s built to perform
The Silverado EV’s WT trim will deliver up to 510 horsepower and 615 lb-ft of torque, plus 8,000 pounds of max towing. The RST will be mightier still, generating 664 horsepower and 780 lb-ft of torque. Options like four-wheel steering, e4WD, and an adaptive air suspension add an extra level of performance. And with up to 10.2kW of power for a worksite or a home, the Silverado EV is super-capable even when standing still.
It’s a masterpiece of tech and design
Aerodynamically optimized styling, a front eTrunk, and a versatile Multi-Flex Midgate pass-through are just a few of the highlights you’ll notice when you first see the Silverado EV.

We spend a lot of time in our cars, which is why many people feel like their cars are an extension of their personality. When you buy a used car, it may not truly feel like it’s yours. But you can easily create a customized driving experience thanks to many aftermarket parts and accessories. Here are three easy ways you can personalize your used car.
1. Seat covers
If you find a great deal on a used vehicle but you don’t love the upholstery, you can easily update it with a set of seat covers. Choose the style and material you prefer.
2. Floor mats
Another simple upgrade to any used car is a new set of floor mats. If the mats in your used car are worn out, a new set can easily refresh the interior. You can also consider a set of all-weather floor mats that fit snugly into the footwells to protect your carpeting from any dirt and debris that comes in on your shoes.
Everyone loves that new-car smell. You can get that scent or any other smell you love in an air freshener. Instead of a basic tree hanging from your mirror, consider an air diffuser that uses essential oils for more natural scents.
We can also help you find various other accessories for your used car at Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet in Fort Worth. Simply contact our team and we’ll get what you’re looking for!
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.
A car is a big investment and unexpected repairs can have a devastating impact on your family’s finances if you aren’t prepared. Luckily for you, there are a number of ways you can extend the life of your vehicle. Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet has compiled a few tips to help your car last longer below.
Follow the Recommended Maintenance Schedule: Manufacturers don’t come up with recommended maintenance schedules for fun. These timelines for service appointments like tire rotations, oil changes, and fluid top-offs are important to keeping your car in the best shape possible. Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet’s service department is happy to help with any needed maintenance.
Stay Genuine: It might seem like an easy way to save a few dollars by opting for aftermarket parts or choosing to use a mom-and-pop mechanic, but it could cost you in the long run. Certified General Motors mechanics — like the ones at Bruce Lowrie Chevy — only use OEM parts and manufacturer-approved repair techniques to keep your car running smoothly.
Be a Clean Freak: It might sound trivial, but you should clean your car because it’s a vital part of keeping it in working order. Make sure you wash your vehicle’s undercarriage to help prevent rust and avoid the costly problems that rust brings.
The 2021 Editor’s Choice list of best new vehicles from Car and Driver named four Chevy vehicles, including the spacious Suburban SUV, the powerful Tahoe SUV, the stylish Camaro ZL1 sports car, and the classic Chevy Corvette muscle car.
The 2021 Chevy Tahoe and the 2021 Suburban are both big family SUVs, and Car and Driver cited both as top picks in the large SUV category. Car and Driver was impressed with the Tahoe’s towing capacity, up to 8,400 pounds, as well as its quiet cabin.
The Tahoe is equipped with a ton of smart features parents will love, like the available Power Sliding Center Console for extra storage, and a Rear Seat Media System that keeps your kids entertained no matter how long the journey.
The massive size of the Suburban, particularly its 144.7 cubic feet of cargo space, is its most standout feature, but Car and Driver also noted its agile performance that’s comparable to smaller SUVs. The Suburban offers a V8 engine with 420 horsepower that lets it easily carry your cargo.
If you’re worried about driving such a big vehicle, the Suburban offers up to nine available camera views, so you can see directly in front, behind, and even overhead. Car and Driver isn’t the only publication to recognize the 2021 Suburban, either: U.S. News & World Report named it the Best Large SUV for Families.

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.
Reading a good book can help pass the time when you’re a passenger on a road trip. But it’s common for some people to get a headache or feel nauseous when doing so. Here are some tips for reading during road trips so you can enjoy literary adventures while minimizing symptoms of carsickness.
Pack some nausea medicine
Consider taking Dramamine® to minimize feelings of nausea when reading in the car. If headaches are a more common symptom for you, pack some ibuprofen.
Take advantage of audiobooks
Bring some earbuds and listen to an audiobook during your travels. Many libraries have apps that let you rent out audiobooks and listen to them for free. Though, you can also go with paid audiobook subscriptions like Audible or Audiobooks.com if you prefer a wider selection of titles to choose from.
Adjust your sitting position
Sometimes, altering how you sit while you read can go a long way in reducing motion sickness. If your seat allows, tilt it back a bit more than usual so you can recline while you read.
Read at rest stops
If none of these strategies work, and you really can’t get into audiobooks, try reading at rest stops. That way, you can still dive into your favorite story and avoid getting carsick.
Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet wishes you and your family a summer filled with great books, good times, and fun travels. Remember to bring your vehicle in for service before your next getaway to ensure that it’s roadworthy.
