Luxury-seeking buyers with an eye toward value continue flocking to the Chevrolet brand. Today’s Chevy lineup features vehicles as diverse in styling as they are in price, but each one is loaded with the high-end tech and comfort features today’s buyers demand. Visit Dan Cummins Chevrolet Buick, your Lexington used car dealer that’s an official Chevrolet dealership, and you’ll discover the best-kept secret in the business: Certified Pre-Owned Chevrolet vehicles.

What is a Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Chevy? It’s a low mileage, nearly new model that receives a bumper-to-bumper multi-point inspection and a thorough reconditioning. Park a CPO car next to a new one, and you’ll barely see the difference. When you buy a CPO Chevy, you’ll drive home with a factory warranty, access to 24/7 roadside assistance, and two years of free maintenance. For used car buyers, opting for a CPO vehicle makes good financial sense, and if you focus on the 2020 model year, you’ll find even better value opportunities. Which 2020 Chevys are most in demand? Take a look at these top models that continue flying off the showroom floor.

Top 2020 Chevy SUVs

Suburban

This legendary extra-large SUV is one of Chevy’s bestsellers, and it’s no surprise since the Suburban achieves everything it’s designed for far better than the competition. Suburban buyers want space for cargo, multiple passengers, and a little extra room for more comfort even at full capacity. Also, the Suburban can tow, which makes it a great road trip companion.

Four trims make up the 2020 lineup, including the LS, the LT, the Premier, and the RST. As a CPO Chevy, the Suburban’s price tag is substantially lower than it was when brand new, opening up opportunities for budget-minded buyers to shop the higher trims. That means accessing luxury features and more engine power. Have fun adding upgraded Bose audio and other plush equipment while still keeping the price low.

Blazer

2020 marked the Blazer’s sophomore model year, so CPO buyers can get excited knowing their Blazer is just one year into its world debut. Designed with the sporty Camaro in mind, the Blazer is for buyers who love the SUV body style but aren’t willing to sacrifice on-the-road performance and race-inspired ride handling. We love the styling of this mid-size category leader, as well as the available 308 horsepower V6 engine that turns it into a seriously powerful machine. Add a little more performance with the sporty RS trim. It features a specially tuned suspension and exterior styling enhancements that give it a bolder curb presence.

Top 2020 Chevy Cars

Camaro

In this age of crossover and SUV obsession, it’s easy to forget about sports cars unless you’re a diehard fan who hasn’t bought into boxy cute styling. The Camaro remains the category’s best value and a blank canvas for buyers to craft into everything from a beach cruising convertible to a throaty 455 horsepower track racer with a manual gearbox. It’s hard to imagine so much diversity within a single model lineup, but that’s the Camaro’s calling card. Coupe body style lovers looking to save a few bucks will love the base LS, especially a one-year-old model. If goosebump-inducing speed and cornering are what you seek, slide behind the wheel of the Camaro SS (add the 1LE Performance Package) and get ready to experience the Camaro at its fastest.

Malibu

If you commute every day, consider a Malibu. Designed in a classic four-door sedan style, the Malibu is Chevy’s version of an affordable, fuel-efficient vehicle that’s ideal for daily drivers. It’s comfortable, spacious, and filled with the latest infotainment technology, so entertainment and smartphone connectivity are a touchscreen away.

Don’t let all that practicality fool you, though. Find a 2020 Malibu with the optional turbocharged 2.0-liter engine, and you’ll enjoy all the fun of a 250 horsepower capability without sacrificing too much fuel economy. Equipped with the base 1.5-liter four-cylinder, the Malibu achieves an estimated 29 MPG city and 36 MPG highway; upgraded 2.0-liter models get 22 MPG in the city and 32 MPG on the highway.

Top 2020 Chevy Pickups

Colorado

The mid-size pickup truck category fills a need for many buyers seeking the style of a pickup truck but not wanting the bulk of a full-size rig. The 2020 Colorado manages to satisfy buyers in this niche while still delivering plenty of truck-like capability and performance. As the undisputed category leader, it delivers 7,700 pounds of towing capability and aggressive exterior styling.

The Colorado also has an available diesel engine. The engine, a 2.8-liter four-cylinder, delivers 369 lb-ft of torque for plenty of low-range power. That fits well with the ZR2 trim, which is focused squarely on off-roading. If it’s an adventure you seek, we highly recommend this combination.

Silverado

America’s favorite pickup truck was completely overhauled in 2019, so gently used 2020 models are a smart pick. Also, 2020 saw an increased quantity of towing assist technology and a few other trim line tweaks that give buyers more features to choose from at every price point. Speaking of trims, the Silverado is available in several, from the base Work Truck all the way up to the plush High Country.

Five available engines mean buyers can customize power and capability, which also means a big price spectrum. Max towing capability for the 2020 Silverado sits at 13,400 pounds, and the payload is equally impressive, at 2,250 pounds. Go ahead and opt for all the bells and whistles, including a powerful Bose audio system, ventilated seats, and a wireless smartphone charging pad.

Chevy Used Cars Are Always a Good Buy

From pickups to tiny hatchbacks, the Chevy lineup brings affordability, reliability, and quality to all different buyers at just about every price point. For the 2020 model year, the influx of CPO vehicles means you’ll avoid the initial new car depreciation and further add value. CPO cars receive extra warranty coverage and other money-saving perks, making them a sound financial choice.

It goes without saying that when you choose a Chevrolet, you’re joining a family of owners who are among the most brand loyal. The Chevy nameplate carries a history of innovation that continues today in earnest. Not only are Chevy vehicles great-looking and high quality, they’re also some of the most technologically advanced cars, trucks, and SUVs on the road today.

Advanced safety features, like driver-assist technologies and available Teen Driver parental controls, join other advancements, including app-based connected services to deliver buyers added peace of mind and convenience. The 2020 Chevy lineup is infused with next-generation infotainment too, so staying informed and entertained has never been easier.

It’s Time to Consider a Chevy CPO

If you’re seeking a high quality used car, take a closer look at CPO Chevys. In addition to the rigorous 172-point inspection these cars undergo, each one comes with amazing extras. CPO buyers receive free 3-month SiriusXM satellite radio and OnStar trial subscriptions, free roadside assistance, and even a 3-day/150-mile no-questions-asked exchange guarantee.

There’s more good news when you buy CPO: extra warranty coverage. You receive a 12-month/12,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty and a 6-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty. How does free maintenance sound? You get that, too, with two years of free oil changes and tire rotations.

The best news? All of these great benefits are backed by the expert service at Dan Cummins Chevrolet Buick, which means tapping into all your Certified Pre-Owned perks is as easy as picking up the phone or scheduling an appointment conveniently online. It’s time to start the hunt for your 2020 Certified Pre-Owned Chevy.
