The Best Models For Adventurous Families to Buy Used Garland TX


If you and your family are looking for a safe, high-tech, and spacious vehicle that can keep up with your active lifestyle, without breaking your budget, head to Jupiter Chevrolet in Garland, Texas. We offer a variety of pre-owned Chevrolet models that are built for road trip adventures and everyday family fun. Check out some of the reasons to buy a used Chevy as well as the top options for your family to consider.


Used vehicles are known for having lower prices than new ones, and their affordability doesn't stop at the sticker price. You will also pay less to insure it and pay less on taxes, leading to more savings over time. If you take out a loan, the total amount you owe in interest may even end up being lower than it would have been when loaning a new car.

When you buy a used car, you also don't need to concern yourself with depreciation nearly as much as you would when buying new. The bulk of a vehicle's depreciation occurs within its first few years of ownership. This means a used car has already undergone much of its depreciation, which is definitely a benefit when you eventually sell or trade it in.


When buying new, your choices are limited to only one or two model years. However, when buying used, you have several model years of vehicles from which to choose. Not only does this widen your selection, but it also makes it easier to pick a vehicle with the exact features that you want.

Shopping for a pre-owned vehicle from an established dealership such as Jupiter Chevrolet, rather than an independent seller, can also relieve any concerns you may have about a used vehicle's safety and quality. Our sales team will be sure to properly inform you about any vehicle you're interested in and help you select one that suits your needs.

There is also plenty of information that you can access over the internet regarding the features of used vehicles and past owners' experiences with them. You can also take a look at vehicle history reports to learn about the life of specific cars.


While a truck is not typically considered a family vehicle, the Chevrolet Colorado has the off-roading expertise, advanced technologies, and comfortable cabin to be a suitable option for family adventures throughout Texas. This midsize pickup truck has exceptional durability, and it can tow up to 7,700 pounds and haul up to 1,578 pounds when properly equipped.

The Colorado offers some fantastic engine options, including an efficient diesel that can help you save even more money on fuel. If you like taking trips off the beaten path, consider its ZR2 trim as well to gain trail-ready features.


The Silverado 1500 is an impressively powerful truck with a towing capacity of up to 13,400 pounds with the proper configuration, which is more than enough for taking a trailer on road trips. The light-duty pickup truck offers some spirited engines, including a V8 that reaches 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque.

Newer models come with Durabed, a functional and strong truck bed with plenty of space for all of your camping and boating gear. Plus, each model has a roomy cabin that the whole family will appreciate.


The Chevy Equinox is a small SUV that's big on family-friendly features. Many models come with advanced safety systems like Forward Collision Alert, Front Pedestrian Braking, and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning. Plus, they have an easy-to-use infotainment system for staying in touch with loved ones.

Inside this stylish SUV, you'll also find comfortable and flexible seats, lots of cargo space, and amenities to increase your relaxation on long drives.


If you have a large family or go on frequent road trips, consider the Traverse. This midsize SUV has seating for up to eight occupants and provides enough room for everyone to stay cozy. When traveling without the kids, simply fold down the rear rows to use a maximum of 98.2 cubic feet of cargo volume for luggage and furniture.

With the right engine and trailering package, the SUV can also tow up to 5,000 pounds, which is perfect if you have a small boat or trailer. Entertainment and safety technologies are also abundant in each model year.
