#1 – 2022 Chevy Traverse

The 2022 Chevy Traverse is one of the most well-known Chevy SUVs. Its third-row seating makes it perfect for families, while its 98.2 cubic feet of cargo space can fit just about anything. While it is a large roomy SUV, the Traverse is not nearly as bulky as the Chevy Tahoe, the flagship SUV in the Chevy lineup. But while it may not be as physically imposing, the Traverse offers plenty of power with its standard 3.6 L V6 engine paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission. This gives the Traverse an impressive 310 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. With the addition of the optional trailer package, the Traverse is capable of towing up to 5,000 pounds.

The Traverse has also gained some upgraded features in the new 2022 model. For instance, Chevy Safety Assist is now available on every trim that the Traverse offers, imbuing every Traverse sold with features like lane keep assist and lane departure warning, which is a huge bonus. In addition to the infotainment system that comes standard with the Traverse, other features like wireless Apple CarPlay and wireless Android Auto offer a sense of luxury to the SUV overall.

The 2022 Traverse offers a unique blend of Chevy versatility, the power and towing capabilities of a larger SUV, and the range and versatility that come with a compact SUV. It offers a wonderful blend of safety and cargo features while also providing options to give the driver a luxury feel. There are no other models in the segment that possess this level of versatility and value.

#2 – 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV

The 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV is Chevy’s version of an electric-powered SUV. While the original Bolt EV was minted in 2017, the remade 2022 model has made something that was good even better. As the world turns and more emphasis is placed on reducing the use of fossil fuels, buying an electric vehicle is among the safest investments you can make. The Bolt EUV is a BEV, operated entirely on a battery pack powering an electric motor. It employs a revolutionary technology that takes energy from braking, usually discharged as heat via the brake pads and rotors in standard automobiles, and recycles it to the battery, dramatically increasing the amount of distance the battery can take the vehicle on a single charge. The 2022 Bolt EUV is capable of traveling an impressive 247 miles on a single charge.

The Bolt EUV also offers another revolutionary feature that could change the way people drive forever. It is a feature that cannot be replicated on a gas-powered automobile. That feature is one-pedal driving—a single pedal that is capable of both acceleration and braking. Pushing down on the pedal accelerates the vehicle as per usual, but the speed can be reduced by simply lifting your foot off the pedal. This simplifies driving, making it safer and more intuitive while decreasing the wear on mechanical parts to reduce maintenance costs and time spent at the mechanic.

The 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV is a larger version of the original Bolt EV. While the original Bolt EV is a small hatchback, the Bolt EUV rides higher and fits into the SUV class with ease. However, it uses the same proven electric powertrain, delivering 200 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque––more than many popular Chevy gasoline SUVs. Because the Bolt EUV is slightly larger than the Bolt EV but has the same battery capacity, the range is some 4.6% less than the smaller model. But the 2022 Bolt EUV still has plenty of range to handle daily commuting and road trips with ease, and standard DC fast charging will let you top off your battery in no time.

The Bolt EUV also offers another outstanding technological innovation primed to revolutionize driving. Super Cruise is new for the 2022 model year and offers true hands-free driving. The Bolt EUV features a light bar on the dashboard. When that light bar is green, it means that the driver is operating on one of the over 200,000 miles of major roadways that are programmed into the SUV’s computer. This allows the SUV to activate three critical safety features, lane centering, adaptive cruise control, and automatic emergency braking, allowing the vehicle to almost “drive itself” down the highway. However, you will still need to keep your eyes on the road, and a driver-facing infrared camera watches to make sure your attention doesn’t wander while Super Cruise is active.

#3 – 2022 Chevy Suburban

The 2022 Chevy Suburban is the largest offering in Chevy’s large family of SUVs. Offering an astounding 145 cubic feet of cargo space, the Suburban is ready for pretty much anything. A standard 355-horsepower 5.3L V8 engine, coupled with a 10-speed automatic transmission, gives the SUV a tremendous amount of power (necessary with a full load of cargo) and an even more capable 6.2L V8 or 3.0L turbo-diesel is also available. An upgrade to independent suspension for the 2021 model year makes for a smoother ride, further adding to the appeal. While the Suburban is a large SUV, it does not feel or handle like one. The informative digital gauges on the dash panel provide a look of sophistication that few other SUVs can match.

The Suburban offers drivers who are looking for towing capacity, power, cargo space, and passenger comfort a solid option. Additionally, it comes in a variety of trims that only serve to upgrade the feeling of luxury that drivers will feel. Even at the base trim, the Suburban boasts ample legroom and a nice, clean look. When it comes to Chevy, versatility is the main sales pitch. In terms of large SUVs, it does not get any more versatile than the 2022 Chevrolet Suburban.
