The Chevy Silverado is an American icon that can be found at farms, construction sites, and other workplaces across the country. When there is a job to be done, there is a Chevy Silverado to do it. We all know that new trucks can be expensive, but this full-size pickup has been a bestseller ever since it was introduced in 1999 to replace the aging Chevy C/K trucks. With over two decades worth of used models to choose from, it is possible to find a used Chevy Silverado that will work for nearly any budget here at Blossom Chevrolet.
A used Silverado is not just a budget option – these powerful pickups have plenty of life left in them and are still strong enough to accomplish any task that you can throw at them. With their bullet-proof Chevy V8 engines providing the muscle to tow or haul without slowing down, these all-American trucks can be counted on for years to come. The Silverado’s solid steel construction with durable leaf spring rear suspension and a live rear axle gives it the longevity to remain a top pick even on the used market. When you need a truck that is ready to work without costing an arm and a leg, a used Silverado will be your best bet.
The Silverado name actually covers a variety of light-duty and heavy-duty models, including the half-ton Silverado 1500, the three-quarter-ton Silverado 2500, and the one-ton Silverado 3500. This variety of models means that there is a used Silverado for every driver, whether you are looking for a general-purpose pickup to drive around town or a dedicated tow vehicle for your work or to pull a camper. While most drivers will be more than happy with a Silverado 1500, the option of a heavy-duty Silverado 2500 or 3500 exists for those truck owners who need more.
On top of having three different Silverado models to choose from, the Silverado also offers plenty of options when it comes to cab size, bed size, drivetrains, and engines. Even the first-generation trucks in the early 2000s were available with two-door regular cabs and four-door crew cabs. However, if you are looking for a middle-of-the-road option, keep in mind that the Silverado switched from a split-door Extended Cab to a four-door Double Cab in 2014. Every generation of Silverado has also offered a long box bed for maximum cargo space.
The current fourth-generation Silverado was introduced for 2019 and is the most sought-after used model. However, the third-generation trucks offer lower prices and higher value without sacrificing much capability or comfort. If you are looking for a real deal, check for a second-generation Silverado from 2013 or before. The older trucks may not have the same level of modern features and technology, but they still make for excellent no-nonsense work trucks that can keep up with modern trucks just fine.
The compact crossover SUV is one of the most popular types of vehicles on the market, and the Chevy Equinox is among the best. First introduced in 2005, this model has long maintained its position as one of the best-selling SUVs around and is just as good of an option on the used market. With three generations of used models to choose from, a pre-owned Equinox will give you a comfortable and capable vehicle that can serve as everything from a commuter to a family car. It also offers more available options than many other used SUVs, including available V6 and diesel engines that allow you to tailor the power and efficiency to match your preferences.
The first-generation Equinox was produced from 2005 to 2009 and remains a top pick for SUV buyers on a budget. However, just because these older vehicles are affordable doesn’t mean that they aren’t capable. In fact, the standard V6 engine gives the first-generation models an impressive level of performance, especially when paired with the available all-wheel drive system. While the technology in an older used Equinox will not match the current model, you may be able to turn up an example equipped with features like heated leather seats, a premium Pioneer audio system, and more.
If you want more modern features, including a basic infotainment system, then look for a used second-generation Equinox. These models were produced from 2010 to 2017 and are some of the best SUVs available on the used market. The second generation brought numerous improvements in addition to more modern technology and offered the choice between two different engine options. The standard turbocharged engine is more affordable and more efficient, while the optional V6 brings a noticeable increase in power.
The third generation of the Equinox was introduced in 2018 and is still in production today. While these models are the most expensive versions on the used market, they also bring the most features and technology. With a modern infotainment system and an array of advanced safety technologies available, a third-generation Equinox is a great choice for anyone looking for an up-to-date vehicle at an affordable price. However, the third-generation Equinox is slightly smaller than the previous two generations, with less cargo space.
Whether a first, second, or third-generation Equinox has caught your eye, you will be assured of getting a reliable Chevy model. If you still aren’t sure which one is right for you, drop by our dealership and let the friendly staff at Blossom Chevrolet demonstrate the differences in person. The Equinox has been one of the most popular SUVs on the market ever since it was first introduced, and used car buyers can enjoy driving this excellent vehicle at an extremely affordable price.
