Differences between the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado and the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Chevrolet Colorado and Chevrolet Silverado 1500 | Garland, TX

There’s a Chevrolet truck for every lifestyle and budget. The 2021 Chevrolet Colorado and the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 are both tough, capable trucks with plenty of power, off-road prowess, and towing capability, but they’re designed to suit different needs. Here’s a look at how they differ.

Size difference

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.

Engine options

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.

Capability

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.

Whether you’re in the market for the Chevrolet Colorado or the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, you can find the perfect truck to suit your needs at Jupiter Chevrolet in Garland, Texas.

Tips for Buying a Used Chevy Truck

Chevrolet Silverado 1500 | Garland, TX

Whether you’re looking for a reliable workhorse or your next family vehicle, a pre-owned Chevrolet Silverado or Colorado can fit the bill. With impressive power, plenty of versatility, and a wide variety of trim level options, it’s easy to find a Chevy truck that fits both your needs and budget. Here are a few tips to make the buying process even easier.

Think about what you want from your truck

When shopping for a truck, consider what you intend to use it for. If it’s a family vehicle, you may want to narrow your search to models with spacious seating configurations. If you plan on hauling home improvement supplies, you may benefit from a long-bed model. Finally, if you crave outdoor adventures, pick a truck with four-wheel drive, a Z71 suspension, or a factory-installed lift kit.

Take it for a test drive

Before you sign on the dotted line, consider taking the truck for a test drive to confirm that it’s the right choice for you. Make sure that the vehicle fits you comfortably, and that you and your family members are comfortable climbing into and out of the truck. Try out the lights, infotainment system, and climate controls, and get to know the way it handles. You may learn that you’d prefer a larger or smaller Chevy truck.

If you’re in the market for a used Chevy truck, we’ll help you find the perfect model for your lifestyle at Jupiter Chevrolet in Garland, Texas.

Is a Chevy SUV or Truck Right for You?

Chevrolet Lineup | Garland, TX

Families on the go need a vehicle with plenty of space, power, safety tech, and comfort features. The Chevrolet lineup offers incredible options. But, how do you choose between one of the brand’s well-equipped SUVs and powerful trucks?

SUV benefits

In an SUV, you can accommodate more passengers. So, if your family is large or you regularly transport a big group, choose an SUV. Small and midsize SUVs offer seating for five, but larger SUVs like the Chevrolet Tahoe or Suburban can accommodate seven to nine passengers. Due to their size, SUVs can be easier to handle compared to trucks, too, making them more versatile. Most SUVs, too, will return better fuel efficiency on highways, ideal if you and your family like to cover a lot of miles.

Truck benefits

Trucks like the Chevrolet Silverado lineup and Chevrolet Colorado offer impressive towing capabilities. If you need to tow a trailer, equipment, or road trip gear like a boat, then you should get a closer look at the Chevy truck lineup. Even if you’re not towing on a regular basis, but still need to haul a lot of stuff, the bed of a Chevy truck will give you the space you need and then some.

Reasons to Trade in Your Car

Trade-In Your Vehicle | Garland, TX

When you’re ready to upgrade your ride, you have a lot of options — not just for which new car to purchase, but for what to do with your old one. Although you could sell your old vehicle, there are many great reasons to trade in your car instead.

A hassle-free experience

When you sell your old car to someone, there are a lot of tasks involved, sometimes even after the deal is done. For instance, if there’s a problem with the vehicle after the purchase, a private buyer might ask you to pay for repairs. Meanwhile, when you trade in your vehicle at the dealership, the dealership becomes responsible for the vehicle. You can walk away knowing that the deal is done and final.

A convenient process

The trade-in process is as simple as bringing your old vehicle to the dealership and leaving with a new one. Selling your car to a buyer is not nearly as easy since it involves communicating and meeting with potential buyers as well as filling out paperwork.

A fresh start

You may think that you have to finish paying off your old vehicle before you can get a new one, but that’s not always the case. Lots of times, dealerships will take a trade-in even if you haven’t finished paying it off. They’ll contact your lender and pay off the rest of your loan as part of the deal, leaving you with a clean slate.

Chevy Equinox Lands on 2020 Safe Vehicles for Teens List

2020 Chevrolet Equinox | Garland, TX

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.
