New Chevy SUV Lineup: Everything You're Looking for in New SUVs in Billings

New Chevy SUVs in Billings

Safe, comfortable, practical, and affordable are traits anyone can get behind, especially when it comes to new SUVs in Billings. As Montana families spend more time in their SUVs, the importance of these vehicle traits increases.

An SUV is more than a form of transportation, it’s a dependable member of your family that accompanies you through all the ups, downs, and curves of life. Through all the errands, work commutes, kid drop offs, shopping trips, family vacations, and trips to see Grandpa and Grandma, your Billing SUV is right there with you.  

The 2018 lineup of new Chevy SUVs are not only ready to accompany you on your family’s journey, but also there to help make it as enjoyable as possible.

Not sure which Chevy SUV is best for your family? We’re showcasing the different safety, technology, and performance features of the Trax, Equinox, and Traverse, helping you find the perfect Billings SUV to accompany you along every journey.


Chevy Trax: Efficient Yet Powerful

New 2018 Chevy Trax

The 2018 Trax is the smallest of the Chevy lineup. Don’t let its size fool you, this crossover SUV offers many of the same features as a full-size SUV.


The Trax has a standard 1.4L turbocharged ECOTEC® engine, giving you the power you need in an efficient way by offering an impressive 33 MPG highway.

Cargo Space

The Trax’s small body with a large amount of cargo space make it the ideal first SUV for a young family. This small SUV offers eight different seating arrangements, giving you options when trying to fit a car seat, groceries, school backpack, and a gym bag all in one trip.


Even though the Trax is a relatively small crossover SUV, it comes with 10 airbags. The Trax also comes with smart sensors designed to adjust frontal air bag inflation according to the severity of an accident.

The 2018 Trax uses camera technology and alerts to help detect potential roadblocks in your path. Forward collision alert, side blind zone alert, lane departure warning, rear park assist, and rear cross traffic alert all come standard with the Trax.


Just because you’re driving, doesn’t mean you can’t stay connected. The new Trax has available 4G LTE Wi-Fi® for up to seven devices, meaning the Internet, your music, and email go with you almost anywhere you go.



Chevy Equinox: The Versatile SUV for the Versatile Family


New 2018 Chevy Equinox

For the family that's always on the move, the Chevy Equinox offers a smooth ride with all the features you'll want and need on your drive. 


The new 2018 Chevy Equinox comes with a trio of available engines:

  • 1.5L Turbo with 32 MPG
  • 2.0L Turbo with 29 MPG
  • 1.6 Turbo-Diesel with 39 MPG

All three Equinox engine options give you the power you need, plus a little extra. The Equinox smoothly handles nearly any ride, from your daily Billings commute, to a trip to Yellowstone.

When searching for new SUVs in Billings, not all have the ability to change between FWD and AWD operation. Thankfully, that’s not a problem for the Equinox. Take on slippery snow-covered roads with ease with the Equinox’s switchable AWD setting.

Cargo Space

Similar to the Trax, the Equinox offers all the room you’ll ever need to accommodate your children and cargo. The 60/40 split-folding rear seats fold flat, giving you 63.5 cu. ft. of cargo space.  

As kids grow older, they begin to come home with more things like instruments, gym bags, and heavy backpacks. The Equinox will make the trips to and from their activities enjoyable, leaving enough room for everyone and their cargo.


Having an extra set of eyes while driving is never a bad thing, which is why the Equinox offers ten advanced safety technologies to help protect and prevent potential hazards on the road.

In addition to standard rear view cameras, rear park assist, and side blind zone alert, the Equinox offers low speed forward automatic braking that can sense front-end collisions with detected vehicles, automatically applying brakes to reduce the severity of impact.


Like the Trax, the Equinox comes with available 4G LTE Wi-Fi® to help you stay connected.

Have a new driver in your house? The Chevy Equinox comes with Teen Driver technology, a powerful tool for new drivers that mutes audio until front-seat occupants are buckled, and automatically turns on available advanced safety features. The in-vehicle report shows how your teen driver performed, helping them identify what they did well, and areas of improvement.



Chevy Traverse: Making Every Mile Count

New 2018 Chevy Traverse

If you want to get the most out of every trip, the new Chevy Traverse is the Billings SUV for you.


In your search for new SUVs in Billings, are you searching for an SUV that can tow everything from a small trailer to a camper? The 2018 Chevy Traverse’s standard 3.6L V6 engine can tow up to 5,000 pounds.

The Traverse’s intelligent stop/start technology helps save gas in stop-and-go traffic by automatically shutting off the engine when the car comes to a stop.

Cargo Space

The Traverse can comfortably seat seven passengers while the third seat is up, while at the same time offering hidden underfloor rear storage to hold all of your cargo.

While the third seat is down, the Traverse offers more cargo room than other new SUVs in Billings with 98.2 cu. ft. available to hold your groceries, luggage, golf clubs, backpacks, and instruments.


Chevy takes safety seriously, which is why the 2018 Traverse received a 5-star overall vehicle score for safety from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.  

In addition to having all of the advanced safety features included in the Equinox, the Traverse has not one, but four cameras that give you a virtual bird’s-eye view of the vehicle.


The 2018 Chevy Traverse keeps everyone in your vehicle connected with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, along with available OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi®. And with the myChevrolet Mobile App, you can start/stop your engine, lock/unlock doors, set parking reminders, and view vehicle diagnostic information at your fingertips.
