If you’re looking for your next vehicle, consider making it a used Chevrolet. Not only will you save money on your purchase, but you’ll also feel confident knowing that you’re behind the wheel of a long-lasting, trustworthy brand.
A lower price tag
If you’re shopping on a budget in Garland, Texas, a used Chevrolet from Jupiter Chevrolet is the way to go. Because of depreciation, used Chevrolet models cost significantly less than new ones. And, in addition to saving on the initial price, you’ll also likely pay less on taxes, registration, and car insurance.
A reliable brand
Today’s vehicles are designed to last longer, so you can count on a used vehicle for years to come. Chevrolet models, in particular, are dependable options, packed with an array of driver assistance features and other safety tools.
Since used vehicles cost less than new ones, you can afford to purchase a more high-end trim when buying used. This means that you can select a used Chevrolet model with fantastic amenities, advanced technologies, and luxuries, like heated seats, which you may not have been able to purchase new.
We at Jupiter Chevrolet offer a number of used Chevrolet models. View our pre-owned inventory online to find a used vehicle to drive in Garland, Texas.
Trailering is a skill, just like many other aspects of driving, that takes time and effort to perfect. Whether you’re helping a friend move to Garland, Texas, or you’re planning a cross-country road trip with a trailer, keeps these tips for trailering with your truck in mind.
Pick a truck
Before you can tow a trailer, you need to get the right truck for your towing needs. The 2021 Chevrolet Colorado is great for smaller trailers, as it will tow up to 7,700 pounds when properly equipped with a 2.8-liter Turbo-Diesel engine. You also can’t go wrong with the 2021 Silverado 1500, which will tow up to 13,300 pounds when properly equipped.
It’s also important to practice before you embark on your journey. Familiarize yourself with the hitch and trailer, and make sure to note the blind spots. It’s especially important that you test the brakes and get a feel for how having a trailer affects your driving.
Leave more room
Be sure to increase your following distance when trailering. Trailers add weight, which means deceleration takes longer. You don’t want to end up slamming the brakes with a 7,000-pound trailer behind you.
To learn more about trailering and to find a Chevrolet truck suitable for your needs, don’t hesitate to call us at Jupiter Chevrolet.
The Chevrolet Traverse is the ideal family SUV, not only because it’s spacious and versatile but also because it provides an especially quiet and relaxing ride. In fact, the Traverse was named one of the 17 Quietest Cars of 2020 by U.S. News & World Report for creating such a peaceful driving experience.
One of the reasons the Traverse is so quiet is thanks to its Active Noise Cancellation technology, which comes standard on the current generation. Whether you’re driving in Garland, Texas, or off the beaten path, this technology keeps the noise to a minimum by dampening vibrations and blocking out the outside sounds you don’t want to hear.
U.S. News & World Report also appreciates Active Noise Cancellation for minimizing the sounds of the SUV’s 310-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 engine. Plus, the Traverse is specifically designed to prevent wind noises from reaching the cabin.
The three-row SUV also comes with an array of interior amenities for your comfort and entertainment. The standard tri-zone automatic climate control keeps everyone cozy, while available leather upholstery adds refinement to the interior. The available Bose® premium audio system and the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System also create more enjoyable drives.

Choosing a safe, reliable vehicle for your teen driver can be a real struggle, as you need to sift through countless options to find the one that will keep your child as safe as possible. However, with the release of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s 2020 Safe Vehicles for Teens list, you can end your search with the Chevrolet Equinox.
Every year since 2014, the IIHS has evaluated used vehicles and compiled them into a collection of the best models for burgeoning drivers. In order to be listed as one of the top choices for teens, a car needs to achieve good ratings in the moderate overlap front, head restraint, side and roof strength tests. It must also have earned a minimum of four stars overall from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
According to the IIHS, 2016 or newer Chevrolet Equinox models more than fit the bill. In addition to earning the necessary scores, the current model also features the innovative Teen Driver technology. This advanced technology helps promote positive driving behaviors by letting you restrict some features and view an in-vehicle report card that summarizes your child’s driving performance.*
If you’re looking for the perfect car for the young driver in your family, check out our available Chevrolet Equinox models at Jupiter Chevrolet in Garland, Texas, by viewing our inventory online.
*Safety or driver assistance features are no substitute for the driver’s responsibility to operate the vehicle in a safe manner. The driver should remain attentive to traffic, surroundings and road conditions at all times. Visibility, weather, and road conditions may affect feature performance. Read the vehicle’s owner’s manual for more important feature limitations and information.
In terms of convenience and flexibility, it doesn’t get any better than a loaner vehicle from Jupiter Chevrolet. Whether you need a reliable ride to get you around Garland, Texas, while we service your vehicle or you’re looking for a great deal on a like-new car, we’ve got you covered with our loaner vehicles.
What is a loaner vehicle?
If the service department needs to hold onto your vehicle for longer than you can wait, you can choose to drive a loaner vehicle. You can use this car to drive back and forth from work as well as run necessary errands, and then you can return it to us when your everyday driver is ready.
The value of a loaner vehicle
If you’re looking for a phenomenal price on a lightly used vehicle, you can actually purchase one of the loaner vehicles on our lot. Since they’ve been driven by others, we price them as used models, though they have few miles on the odometer. It’s not that different from buying a former rental car since a loaner car has never been privately owned, but it has already experienced the new car depreciation. Right now, you can get your hands on a gently used loaner vehicle for an affordable price at Jupiter Chevrolet.
For the chance to drive a like-new Chevrolet for a fraction of the price, check out our online inventory of loaner vehicles at Jupiter Chevrolet.

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.

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.
