Why Buy a Used Chevrolet?

Like most vehicles, even an award-winning brand-new Chevrolet model will lose a big chunk of its value to depreciation. In fact, depreciation reduces the value of a typical vehicle by some 20% to 30% in just its first year on the road. And after 5 years, you can expect that most cars and trucks will have depreciated by about 60%. That’s a big drop in value if you’ve bought a new vehicle, but it becomes an equally big price reduction when you’re in the market for a used one. The discounts keep growing, too, since the cost of car insurance is usually tied to the vehicle’s value. In other words, a used Chevrolet will cost noticeably less to insure than a new one with all the same equipment.

Now, you do have to take into account a used vehicle’s past life, yet that’s impressively easy to do with a vehicle history report. These handy resources can fill you in about a car’s previous owners, service records, past accidents, and more. CarMotive’s dedication to transparency and integrity can then give you the confidence you need to seal the deal!

Chevrolet Equipment Highlights

Chevrolet is constantly introducing new technology, performance, and comfort features to make its vehicles even better. The thing to remember, however, is that many of the brand’s used SUVs, cars, and trucks are just as well equipped as its new ones. Advanced driver-assistance features, screen-friendly infotainment system, and luxurious amenities are all in the mix. (Note: Exact features vary by model.)

  • Rear-seat media systems can keep your passengers happy with dual 12.6-inch drop-down displays.

A Brief History of Chevrolet

It was actually William C. Durant who brought the Chevrolet brand to life, teaming up in 1911 with Swiss-American race-car driver Louis Chevrolet as a way to get back into the industry after founding, and getting fired from, General Motors. Durant’s second go at auto manufacturing was such a success that he was able to buy out GM just five years after Chevy’s founding.

The Chevy brand became a vital part of the GM family with breakthroughs like the original Chevrolet Suburban Carryall — the country’s very first SUV. More iconic vehicles kept coming, including the Chevrolet Bel Air, Monte Carlo, El Camino, and Blazer, and many of tomorrow’s classics can be found today at CarMotive.
