Whether you want a family vehicle or a sporty SUV, the new 2020 Chevrolet Blazer is the model for you. This vehicle was recently named the Good Housekeeping Institute’s Best New Midsize SUV in the two-row category. This award is determined in conjunction with Car and Driver, making the Blazer one of the Best New Family Car award winners.
The award is given to vehicles based on their safety, handling, value, technology, and design. For an award winner to be named, the judges also drove each eligible vehicle over 5,000 miles on highways, tracks, and in cities. The Blazer was determined to be among the best.
“A stylish exterior and an appealing aesthetic wraps this practical, fun-to-drive crossover,” writes Rachel Rothman, Good Housekeeping Institute Chief Technologist and Head Engineer. “You’ll enjoy a confident, responsive drive that stands out on city streets and highways alike.”
What set the Blazer apart? This model comes with an impressive 64.2 cubic feet of space with the seats folded, as well as up to 4,500 pounds in maximum towing capabilities. Plus, this model had 26 mpg* on the highway when properly equipped, which means you’ll save more on the road. With multiple trims available, the 2020 Chevrolet Blazer is the perfect model for virtually any driver.

In 2019, iSeeCars.com analyzed over 15.8 million cars in 2019 to find out the longest-lasting car brands. Their sole aim was to figure out which makes and models had made it past the 200,000-mile mark on the odometer. The study then ranked vehicles and brands by the percentage of vehicles still on the road after 200,000 miles.
iSeeCars CEO Phong Ly cited “truck-like SUVs and pickup trucks” as the vehicles most likely to last. This category includes the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, the Chevrolet Tahoe and the Suburban.
Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban
Both of these full-size SUVs ranked high on the chart of overall highest-ranking vehicles. The Chevrolet Suburban came in with a rating of 4.9 percent, while the Tahoe was 4.1 percent. The industry average for vehicles overall was only 1 percent, and the industry average for all SUVs was even smaller at 0.9 percent.
Chevrolet Silverado 1500
In the Longest-Lasting Pickup Truck category in the iSeeCars study, 2.0 percent of the vehicles still on the road after passing the 200,000-mile mark are Chevy Silverado 1500 models. This puts them above the segment average of 1.8 percent.
When it came to the longest-lasting brands, Chevrolet came in at 4th place overall, with 1.4 percent of vehicles on the road over 200,000 miles hailing from the bowtie brand.

This year, Overland Journal introduced a new award for Truck of the Year. For the inaugural year, the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison was named the Overland Truck of the Year in the mid-size truck segment. Overland Journal also gave awards for the best full-size truck, adventure motorcycle, and SUV. To determine the winners, editors sent the trucks through thousands of miles of testing, both on- and off-road, over the course of nearly a year.
Overland Journal editors were impressed with the stunning
capabilities of the Colorado ZR2 Bison, as well as its great available
features. These include its Turbo-Diesel engine, a winch-ready steel front
bumper, full-length rock sliders, front and rear locking differentials, its
rear steel bumper, and a great suspension system.
The Colorado ZR2 Bison is ready to tackle your next
adventure with a wide range of standard off-road-ready equipment including five
skid plates, a modified rear axle, large fender flares, cast-iron control arms,
and Revolutionary Multimatic DSSV dampers.
Power comes from the standard 3.6-liter V6 with 308
horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. However, it’s also available with a diesel
engine, which has an output of 181 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. When
properly equipped, the Colorado ZR2 Bison has a maximum payload capacity of
The judges heaped praise on the trailering systems of the
Sierra and Silverado, which employ numerous cameras to provide multiple views
around the vehicles from the bed, around the outside of the vehicle, and even through
the trailer. A transparent trailer view
in the vehicles uses cameras to create a view representing what’s immediately
behind the trailer, taking the stress out of backing a trailer and eliminating
the need for a second person to help you maneuver. You’ll be able to enjoy a
clear view of what’s behind the trailer on an 8-inch infotainment touch screen on
the truck’s dashboard. This handy technology is more than user friendly — it’ll
give you a sense of security greater than ever before.
The Chevrolet Corvette continues to win both hearts and awards. The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 earned honors at the 2019 Sport Auto Awards in November, taking home two trophies: one in Convertibles/Roadsters under 150,000 and the other in Euros and Coupes under 150,000 Euros.
The Corvette Z06 boasts a 6.2-liter Supercharged V8 that
delivers 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to that kind of power,
it earned a score of 52.2 percent in the convertibles and roadsters class,
allowing the Corvette Z06 to take the top prize over the Jaguar F-Type SVR and
Maserati GranCabrio. In the coupe class, the Corvette Z06 had a tighter race.
It beat out the F-Type SVR and the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye with a
score of 38.7 percent.
This is the 27th year that the German magazine, Sport
Auto, has run the awards, which are calculated in a reader’s choice format.
Readers chose from a field of 238 vehicles in 18 production and 10 tuning
vehicle categories Almost 13,000 readers participated this year in the voting
process, which is held every year in November.
Chevrolet is planning to release a new Corvette, which will
be the most powerful version of the Corvette Stingray ever made. It’s capable
of producing 490 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque. With stats like that, more
awards are surely in Chevrolet’s future.
The SEMA Show is an annual event that reveals innovative aftermarket
products and celebrates the organization’s partnership with famous automakers.
Plus, it’s where the industry’s best vehicles are crowned with a prestigious
title, based on their segment. These awards are given to just five categories
of vehicles — including trucks.
The Silverado brought home the Truck of the Year title thanks
to Chevy’s dedication to introducing new features and technologies year in and
year out, aimed at constantly elevating user experience in a Silverado. This
includes technology like an available 15-view camera system to make trailering
easier, an available Head-Up Display that can project information to on the
windshield so you don’t have to take your eyes off the road, and two
segment-first rear-seatback storage compartments.
Because of these innovations and new features being added into the Silverado and other Chevy vehicles, Chevrolet continues to show its dedication to bringing only the best to its fans. This has allowed the Silverado to thrive for many years, and the best is still yet to come for Silverado fans.
Chevrolet revealed the 2020 Corvette Stingray convertible, which is the first-ever Corvette convertible with a mid-engine and a hardtop. The hardtop Corvette convertible has new impressive features and gives a powerful performance.
With the hardtop, the
cabin of the Stingray is quieter, which makes for more relaxing drives. The
hardtop also has a sleek appearance and adds more security. When you put the
top down, you can still utilize the spacious trunk and the front storage
compartment of the convertible to store your sports equipment and other cargo.
You can activate the two-piece top when
driving at speeds of up to 30 mph, and you can retract it in just 16 seconds. You
can have a roof that is body-colored, or you can opt for the Carbon Flash
metallic-painted nacelles and roof for a bold style.
The convertible contains a 6.2-liter Small Block V8 LT2 engine, which reaches 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. An eight-speed dual-clutch transmission pairs with the engine. Plus, the vehicle’s chassis was adjusted to provide a spirited performance.
The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible is an exciting new vehicle. We at Greenwood Chevrolet encourage you to stop by our dealership to take one of our Chevrolet models out for a test drive to learn more about the available features.
