A good vehicle can last you more than a decade, so it’s crucial to consider the demands of your everyday life when purchasing a new car, truck or SUV to ensure you get one that will meet the needs of your unique lifestyle. Luckily for you, Chevy’s lineup of cars, trucks and SUVs has models that fit a wide range of lifestyles — and they’re all available at Fiesta Chevrolet. Reference our guide below to determine the best model for your way of life.
Teachers work hard to ensure our children have a bright future. To do their jobs well, they need a vehicle they know they can rely on so they never miss that first bell. They also need something versatile so they can go from school to after-school activities to their own social events and then to home for an evening of grading homework — all seamlessly. Safety technology is another top priority because of the likelihood of transporting students on field trips or to competitions — or just driving their own children around. For teachers, we recommend a reliable sedan like the Malibu or a small but efficient crossover like the Trax or Equinox. The midsize Malibu is highly efficient, with a hybrid option (great for teachers on a budget), and the new Chevy Trax compact SUV earned a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score for Safety from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and comes with available all-wheel drive for increased safety on the go.
We have a high number of medical professionals living in the Edinburg community. Our city’s nurses often work long shifts at the hospital; the last thing they want is to spend forever circling the crowded parking garage for a tight spot to fit into. Conversely, some nurses spend their days driving from patient home to patient home, meaning they want something efficient, reliable and spacious enough for all their equipment. Many nurses have their own families at home, so they also prioritize safety features. We strongly suggest something small and efficient like the Malibu, Trax or Sonic. The Chevy Sonic is one of Chevy’s smallest and most efficient cars, earning up to 34 mpg on the highway.** Though compact, the Sonic still offers a surprising amount of cargo space for medical equipment or just a gym bag for a quick workout after a long shift: up to 47.7 cubic feet.
Did you start your own small business? Treat yourself to a car that makes your hectic life a little more manageable—but that also impresses potential investors and clients. We highly suggest the Chevy Trax, Malibu, or Blazer. The Trax will save on company expenses thanks to its great fuel economy and low starting price while the Malibu mid-size sedan is perfect for self-starters on the go, with available built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi and smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. Go with Chevy’s newest crossover, the Blazer, if you want to impress clients with sleek styling and advanced tech (like the standard 8-inch diagonal touchscreen). The Blazer is perfect if your company ever needs to haul a trailer, as it’s rated up to 4,500 pounds.
Being in Texas gives us great access to the beauty of the outdoors, whether it’s boating on the Gulf, kayaking in a lake or hiking. If you love to get out and get active, you may need a vehicle to support your passion — one with great off-road prowess, plenty of versatile cargo space and incredible towing power. We highly recommend a pickup like the Colorado or Silverado or Chevy’s largest, longest-running SUV, the Suburban. The Chevy Suburban boasts up to 121.7 cubic feet of cargo space for all your camping, fishing and hiking gear. Or if you’re taking a group of friends on your next big adventure, make use of the Suburban’s comfortable seating for up to nine passengers and up to 14 charge points. The Suburban offers massive power from its 5.3-liter V8 engine, which cranks out 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque and enables up to 8,300 pounds of towing when properly equipped. The Silverado models are designed for ultimate towing convenience, with tech like the In-Vehicle Trailering System and Hitch Guidance with Hitch View.
In the Edinburg area, family comes first. We are home to an impressive amount of large families, all of whom we cherish. It’s not uncommon for families in our area to have five or more children or to have multigenerational households with grandparents, mom and dad and the kids all together under a single roof. These families need something spacious for all of their daily commutes and errands; safety and comfort are equally important. Depending on family size, families in the area should check out the Equinox, Traverse or Tahoe. The Equinox is the most efficient yet still offers up to 3,500 pounds of available towing when properly equipped and boasts up to 63.9 cubic feet of cargo space. You can seat up to eight in the Traverse, which was named a Parents magazine and Edmunds “Best Family Car of 2018,” thanks to its 14 advanced available safety features. The Tahoe is humongous with 94.7 cubic feet of cargo space and safety features such as Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Forward Collision Alert.
Our community of Edinburg is packed with hard workers. Chief among them are the ones who perform manual labor each day to keep our community thriving. These include farmers and ranchers, contractors and construction workers, and landscapers and gardeners. People in these tough jobs often depend on a reliable truck with incredible towing power and a versatile cargo bed to get the job done. For them, we recommend the midsize Colorado, the full-size Silverado or the heavy-duty Silverado 2500HD or 3500HD. The Colorado is America’s most efficient midsize truck, earning up to 30 miles per gallon on the highway.* Yet it’s still plenty powerful, with best-in-class max towing at 7,700 pounds when properly equipped. The Silverado’s new Durabed™ cargo bed area offers up to 20 percent more space than competing trucks and uses a higher-strength steel for a more durable cargo area. But, you’ll get the most towing power from the properly equipped Silverado HD line, offering up to 35,000 pounds of trailering power, 7,442 pounds of payload and 910 lb-ft of torque.
Edinburg is the perfect place to retire, thanks to our constant good weather and close proximity to the beach. We have many retirees who call Edinburg home year-round and others who are proud to be “winter Texans,” leaving their homes up north during the cold, harsh winters to enjoy our more moderate season. These drivers are looking for luxurious models that prioritize comfort and convenience. Many of our retirees like to enjoy time out on the water, meaning they need a truck that can haul their boat to the gulf coast. We recommend the Chevy Silverado 1500, Equinox, or Trax. The Silverado 1500 is perfect for those with a need to tow, thanks to a max tow rating of 12,200 pounds. The efficient Equinox crossover is perfect for retirees with grandchildren, thanks to its 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score for Safety from NHTSA and its spacious, flexible rear area—up to 63.9 cubic feet of space. The Trax is great for retirees who love to take road trips, thanks to its 31 mpg highway fuel rating.***
Our community in Edinburg is always grateful for the protection afforded to us by our border patrol agents and law enforcement officers. These hard-working men and women help keep our city safe. While they have access to specialty vehicles on the job, these agents and officers are typically looking for a powerful truck or SUV for personal driving. Many enjoy outdoor activities like camping, fishing, hunting and boating out on the Gulf, meaning towing power is important. Many are also mothers and fathers and thus want a spacious SUV with advanced safety technologies and modern comfort and convenience features. We recommend the Chevy Colorado, Silverado 1500 or Tahoe.
