Is camping a big part of your life? The next vehicle you buy should reflect your love of the great outdoors — and that’s just what the Chevrolet Trailblazer does. This small but rugged SUV was recently named one of The 16 Best Cars for Camping in 2021 by U.S. News & World Report.
The Chevrolet Trailblazer is surprisingly roomy inside, providing 39.4 inches of rear legroom for any friends or family members you bring along. If it’s just you and one other person, you can fold the rear seats down to gain 54.4 cubic feet of cargo space for tents, packs, and more. For the 2022 model year, the Trailblazer also adds an option for roof rack cross rails so you can carry gear on the roof.
Whether you’re camping at a nearby spot like Ray Roberts Lake or heading farther away from Garland, Texas, the Trailblazer makes it easy to stay connected with a 7-inch touch screen, smartphone compatibility, and built-in Wi-Fi® hotspot capability. Six Chevy Safety Assist features come standard to keep you safe on your adventure.
If you’re going off the beaten path, consider the ACTIV trim with available AWD. This model gives you a suspension tuned for off-roading, a front skid plate for protection, and 17-inch sport terrain tires.

When it comes to size, the Silverado 1500 is the larger of the two trucks. Classified as a full-size pickup, the Silverado 1500 is more of a family vehicle — it offers more headroom, legroom, and cargo volume than its smaller sibling. The Colorado, on the other hand, is a midsize truck. Thanks to its more compact size, it’s better suited to city driving and maneuvering though tight spots on off-road trails.
While both of these Chevy trucks offer plenty of power, the Silverado delivers more horsepower and torque than its midsize stablemate. On the Colorado, you’ll be able to pick from three engine options that range in power from the base-trim 200-horsepower 2.5-liter engine to the Duramax® turbo-diesel that unleashes 369 horsepower. The Silverado starts out with a 285-horsepower engine maxes out with a 420-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 dynamo.
As a larger truck, the Silverado 1500 offers a greater towing capacity and higher payload capacity than the Colorado. With the Silverado 1500, you can tow up to 13,300 pounds or haul a maximum of 2,280 pounds. By comparison, the Colorado maxes out at 7,700 pounds of towing and 1,550 pounds of payload when properly equipped — which is still plenty of muscle for towing boats and trailers or transporting supplies for your next DIY project.
When your family wants a new SUV to keep up with your packed schedule, two prominent choices are the 2021 Chevy Equinox and Blazer. To make an informed decision about which vehicle is better suited for your day-to-day, check out the main differences between the SUVs.
The 2021 Equinox has the traditional look of an SUV, defined by its rounded curves and classic silhouette. The 2021 Blazer draws inspiration from the iconic Camaro sports car and has a more aggressive, dynamic appearance.
The Equinox offers one engine, a 1.5-liter turbo that generates 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque. It pairs with a six-speed automatic transmission and achieves an EPA-estimated 31 mpg on the highway.*
The Blazer, meanwhile, offers a 193-horsepower 2.5-liter engine, a 227-horsepower 2.0-liter Turbo, and a 308-horsepower 3.6-liter V6. They all pair with a nine-speed automatic transmission, but they offer a bit less fuel economy than the Equinox engine.
Exterior and interior space
As a midsize SUV, the Blazer has larger exterior dimensions than the small Equinox. Nevertheless, they both have seating for up to five and similar amounts of headroom and legroom. Cargo volume is also nearly identical with the Blazer having 64.2 cubic feet, while the Equinox has 63.9 cubic feet.

One of the coolest new options for the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is the available Multi-Flex Tailgate. This new tailgate makes the truck’s Durabed an even more versatile and capable truck bed by offering six unique configurations.
The primary gate functions like a traditional tailgate. It can be opened using a button on the tailgate, the key fob, or a switch inside the cabin.
Primary gate load stop
This position is ideal for hauling longer items, like wood planks. Simply lower the primary gate and then flip up the load stop to secure items.
Folding inner gate
With the primary gate lowered, you can also fold down the inner gate to get closer to the cargo box. This is ideal when loading heavier items or reaching items that are further back in the bed.
You can fold the inner gate into a full-width step. With a maximum weight capacity of 375 pounds, it is perfect for getting in and out of the bed.
Inner gate load stop
When loading two tiers of cargo, you can use the inner gate load stop to secure longer items stacked on top of shorter items.
Inner gate work surface
The inner gate work surface is great when working at a job site or when your family needs another surface at your campsite.
The 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has massively improved its capabilities for work and play, bettering its trailering capabilities and tailgate flexibility. With these latest changes, the pickup truck makes it easier to complete hands-on projects and more convenient to go on family road trips.
Your 2021 Silverado 1500 is a more versatile option, thanks to its new available Multi-Flex Tailgate that offers six different functions to match your needs. Whether you need a workspace to finish putting together your fishing gear or better access to the truck bed, the Multi-Flex Tailgate has a function for you. Simply press the two buttons on the tailgate or use the key fob to adjust it as you wish.
Not only are two engines of the Silverado 1500 gaining huge upgrades in towing capacity for the 2021 model year, but the truck is also adding innovative trailering technologies. The Trailer Length Indicator helps make sure you have adequate room to switch lanes when driving with a trailer. The Rear Trailer View also now comes with a Trailer-Angle Indicator and guidelines to assist you when backing up your trailer.
The Silverado 2500 HD truck is one of the most capable, powerful vehicles you can buy from Chevrolet. With several updates on the way, this heavy-duty truck is about to get even better for the 2021 model year.
You’ll be able to purchase the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD with new Mosaic Black Metallic or Cherry Red Tintcoat exterior paint jobs. A new 18-inch wheel design will be available, too, along with five new 20-inch wheel options.
Under the hood, the 2021 Silverado 2500 HD will maintain its two powertrain options: a 6.6-liter V8 that puts out 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque, and a Duramax® 6.6-liter Turbo-Diesel V8 that makes 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque. However, the gas V8 will now offer E85 FlexFuel capability for cleaner performance.
You can expect several changes inside the cabin of the 2021 Silverado 2500 HD. Work Truck, Custom and LT trims will get a new split-bench front seat with covered armrest storage. These trims will also receive a new available auto-dimming rearview mirror that shows a video display of the bed. On higher trims, wireless Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® will be available as well.
Five new special editions will be offered for the 2021 Silverado 2500 HD: the LTZ Premium Texas Edition, the Midnight Edition, the Z71 Sport Edition, the Z71 Chrome Sport Edition and the Carhartt Special Edition.
If you’re looking forward to test-driving or purchasing the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD, give us a call at Jupiter Chevrolet to learn when it will arrive in Garland, Texas.
If you’re a first-time buyer or looking for something that’s a great value for a tight budget, you’re going to want to check out the 2020 Chevrolet Spark. The Spark is one of the most affordable new cars available, earning it a spot on Kelley Blue Book’s list of the 10 Cheapest Cars of 2020.
The 2020 Chevrolet Spark finds its way onto this list based on its projected five-year cost-to-own. That includes everything from maintenance to depreciation to fuel costs, and it certainly doesn’t exclude the attractive price tag. The 2020 Spark starts below $15,000 MSRP, making it an especially affordable option on the road today, bar none.*
But unlike other new cars in this similar price range, the Chevrolet Spark offers sporty styling and comes well-equipped. This stylish compact hatchback is great on gas too at up to 30 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway, and it’s also quite nimble and maneuverable.** It’s also plenty smart out of the gate with its standard Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System and 7-inch-diagonal color touch screen, which includes Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility.
When it comes to the 2020 Chevrolet Spark, a cheap price doesn’t mean cheap quality. The Spark is a premium small car that’s a great value and especially attractive if you’re a younger driver on the go. If you want to save money, Chevrolet offers some of the most affordable new cars on the market, including the Sonic and all-new Trailblazer.
