Chevrolet is known for building vehicles that stand the test of time, and its diverse lineup has something for just about every type of driver in the Cincinnati area. We here at McCluskey Chevrolet take great pride in pairing residents of the Queen City with reliable Chevys at great prices. These are vehicles that will make day-to-day errands run smoothly and make commutes to work more enjoyable. There are a lot of parents raising families in Cincinnati, and Chevrolet makes some excellent options filled with the comfort and convenience features busy families need. We hope you’ll turn to us as your Chevy dealer in Cincinnati when you want impeccable service and to work with an honest and friendly sales team.

Whether you’re looking for a vehicle with excellent fuel economy for regular trips to Dayton or Columbus, you want a stylish vehicle for relishing the booming arts and culture scene, or you need a hardworking pickup for the job site, we’ve selected a few options that we think you’ll love. Our selections are priced affordably, and our used models are available at particularly agreeable prices. We’re always bringing in more used Chevrolets, so be sure to ask our team what we have in stock. Below are three examples of a great used Chevy SUV, sedan, and pickup that can meet the needs of our Cincinnati drivers.

The 2019 Chevy Blazer

The Chevy Blazer is a comfortable and stylish midsize SUV that sits somewhere between the compact Equinox and the larger SUVs Chevrolet offers, like the Suburban and the Tahoe. Families or professionals looking for spacious seating for five—and in a vehicle that’s fun to drive—should check out the 2019 Blazer. Its dimensions mean passengers can spread out, but it’s still easy to maneuver into tricky downtown parking spots.

The 2019 Blazer offers a powerful V6 engine option paired with all-wheel drive. We highly recommend this model to Cincinnati drivers because that all-wheel drive will be beneficial when the roads get slick in the winter. However, if you want the best fuel efficiency this vehicle can achieve, you’d want to stick to the 2.0L Turbo or 2.5L four-cylinder engines, which get about 15% greater mileage than the V6. If your work takes you all over the city, you’ll want the four-cylinder engine to save on gas.

For families who want to take advantage of the plethora of campgrounds surrounding Cincinnati, like those in Caesar Creek State Park, the good news is that some models of the 2019 Blazer can tow up to 4,500 lbs. That much capacity should be more than enough to haul a small camper out to the lakeshore.

Ask our team if we currently have any used Blazers boasting the Driver Confidence Package. This will get you heated front seats—ideal for chilly Cincinnati winters—as well as a power liftgate, remote start, and some excellent driver assistance features.

Every Blazer will have USB ports accessible to the front and rear seats for passengers to plug in devices. Depending on the model you snag, you could also find built-in navigation and a wireless charging dock. The 2019 Chevy Blazer delivers comfort, convenience, and class at a great price.

If you spend a lot of time in the downtown area, then the Malibu is a smart option to check out. The Malibu offers a luxury look and feel at a wallet-friendly price. For the 2020 model year, Chevy’s midsize sedan boasts sophisticated styling that makes it look more expensive than it is, as it’s considerably affordable. Current model year Malibus are popular for their low MSRPs, so used ones can wear particularly attractive price tags.

This Malibu is known for its great fuel efficiency. The EPA estimates it at 32 MPG combined, being 29 MPG in the city and 36 MPG on the highway, so you can get mileage whether you stay close to home or hit the open road. Many drivers have noted Malibu’s smooth handling; this and its spacious backseats should keep adult passengers comfortable, even on long rides.

This model’s cargo availability is particularly noteworthy, given that it’s a sedan. Not only is its trunk spacious, but it also has several convenient storage compartments within the cabin to stash small essentials. Smartphone compatibility and onboard Wi-Fi come standard, making this a perfect vehicle for parents or professionals who need to keep up with calls and track appointments on the road.

With industrial goods being one of the top industries in Cincinnati, we have a lot of drivers coming to us looking for a well-priced midsize truck that can transport considerable loads. For those customers, we gladly suggest the 2020 Chevy Colorado. It offers impressive capabilities, all packed into a midsize frame that’s easy to handle.

The 2020 Colorado offers a few engine options, starting with the base-level four-cylinder, moving onto the powerful V6, and topping out with the powerful and fuel-efficient diesel engine. The V6 will get you a towing capacity of 7,000 lbs, and the diesel will get you an even better 7,700-lb towing limit. There are two cab sizes and two-bed lengths available for your Colorado; ask one of our team members to show you both options so you can compare them to your needs.

While the Colorado is a hardworking truck, it also has an excellent infotainment system. Some models have the Infotainment 3 Premium system, which will earn you an 8.0-inch touchscreen along with built-in navigation, which is helpful if you drive to new work sites regularly. We also want to note that the 2020 Colorado does come in the off-road-ready ZR2 trim, so if you are looking for a versatile adventuring vehicle, check in with us to see if we’re carrying one of these popular models.

Finally, we really love that Trailer Sway Control comes standard on all trims of the 2020 Colorado. When it detects a swaying motion in the load you’re towing, this system applies the brakes to your truck and trailer to mitigate the issue before it balloons beyond your control.
