Known for its diverse lineup and outstanding reliability, the Chevrolet SUV stable has won more J.D. Power Dependability Awards than any other manufacturer over the past five years. Whether you have your eyes set on the spritely Trax or need all the room that the mighty Suburban affords you, your family is in safe hands with a Chevy SUV.
Searching for a super-stylish mid-size SUV that’s also a hoot to drive? Look no further than the Chevy Blazer.
The 2022 Blazer’s body styling, athletic stance, and accents give it a bold, muscular, racy look. You get a choice of two engines—a two-liter turbo with 228 horsepower and a 3.6-liter V6 offering 308 horsepower.
It has space for up to five passengers and an eight-inch touchscreen to keep them entertained and informed. And like the rest of the SUVs on our list, the Blazer has Chevy Safety Assist, a suite of six driver-assist features that includes a forward collision alert, lane keep assist, and a following distance indicator.
For the driver who doesn’t like to compromise, the Suburban from Chevy can haul eight people in style (while you’ve got an 8,300-pound trailer hitched to the back, too). Despite its size, the Suburban has outstanding handling, and the three choices of engine (a pair of monster V8s and a diesel) are always more than capable of handling all the tasks you throw at them.
The Suburban isn’t a throwback. Great care has been taken to ensure the mileage is competitive, with the diesel engine getting you around 27 miles to the gallon on the highway.
The interior makes excellent use of the vast space, with a 12.3-inch digital gauge, 10-inch touchscreen in the center stack, and optional 12.6-inch screens for the rear seats. Of course, you also get a massive amount of room for luggage—145 cubic feet.
Chevrolet’s value SUV, the Trax, offers you a lot of car for not too much money. It has a 1.4-liter four-cylinder turbo engine that makes 155 horsepower, paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and the choice of front- or all-wheel drive.
For city dwellers, the Trax is potentially the top choice here for its agile handling in tight spots. While tall, the Trax resists leaning in corners, and the excellent brakes inspire confidence.
All Trax models come with a 7.0-inch touchscreen with Apple and Android support, and you get in-car Wi-Fi as standard. The NHTSA has awarded the Trax a full five-star safety rating, thanks to its available features like rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, and forward-collision warning.
The Chevy Traverse is a mid-size alternative to a minivan, with a focus on space and comfort. The 310-horsepower V6 engine in the Traverse shifts through the nine speeds of the standard automatic transmission with gusto. It’s one of the quickest three-row transporters on the market.
For larger families, carpooling, or sports teams, the Traverse can be equipped to carry up to eight people over its three rows.
Five trims are on offer, from the entry-level LS to the superb High Country. Options like second-row captain’s chairs, roof rails, leather upholstery and a power rear liftgate increase the Traverse’s versatility while improving the vehicle’s comfort even more. The Traverse also has the best EPA highway fuel consumption ratings in its class.
