There’s nothing quite like the thrill of throwing some bags in your trunk and driving across the country. Sure, planes are faster than ever, but the only way to really see the country is on a road trip. Before you head out on your next adventure, discover some of the best Chevrolet cars for road trips. If you like what you see, come to Tom Gill Chevrolet in Florence for a test drive.


Chevrolet Suburban

The 2016 Chevrolet Suburban is the go-to model for a big family road trip thanks to its flexible seating from seven to nine, its ability to tow up to 8300 pounds, and a dedicated cargo area in back measuring a cavernous 39.3 cubic feet. You’ll also have the option of going off the beaten path thanks to its truck-based nature and an available four-wheel drive system with a two-speed transfer case. When it comes to serious people hauling, boat towing, and off-road adventures, the 2016 Chevrolet Suburban is at the top of the pack. The rear seat entertainment and Blu-Ray system in back is just an added bonus.

Chevrolet Sonic Hatchback

The 2016 Chevrolet Sonic Hatchback is the perfect car for the classic college road trip. Take your best friend, fold the rear seat down, and stack all of your camping gear and a case of drinks into the back of this hatchback with room to spare. The Sonic hatchback isn’t tough on your budget, either, thanks to its starting MSRP from $14,945 and up to an EPA-estimated 40 mpg highway and 29 mpg city with the available 1.4L turbocharged four-cylinder.

Chevrolet Equinox

For drivers who need to take a carload of people and tow some stuff behind them but don’t need the kind of massive capabilities of the Chevrolet Suburban, the 2016 Chevrolet Equinox proves a capable option. Pack up a family of four or five inside the Equinox and fit your stuff in back without too much trouble while still enjoying a towing capacity of up to 3,500 pounds with the available 3.6L V6 engine.

Chevrolet Corvette

Need we say more? You might not get as much room as you do in some of these other cars, but there’s certainly no more poetic way of taking a classic American road trip than behind the wheel of America’s favorite sports car. The 2016 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray’s blistering 6.2L V8 engine dishes out up to 460 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque, while the Bilstein shocks, sport-tuned suspension, and refined steering work make for thrilling performance around tight curves, whether you’re headed down a mountain or winding through the woods. The surprisingly fuel-efficient EPA-estimated 29 mpg highway and 17 mpg city doesn’t hurt, either.
