The Silverado and the Equinox are household names in Livonia—but are Chevys good cars? Are Chevys reliable? Are you making a smart investment if you decide to buy or lease a new or pre-owned Chevrolet? A new or new-to-you vehicle is a huge investment, and these are all questions you’ll want to answer before you take the next steps.

There are plenty of reasons to feel confident about your decision to drive with Chevy, and you don’t just have to take our word for it. We’ve laid out some of the most relevant information from industry experts so you can move forward today!

Are Chevys Reliable?

In 2022, Chevy was the recipient of no fewer than six J.D. Power “Dependability” awards. So, are Chevy trucks reliable? The 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LTD and the 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD both received the agency’s “Highest Quality” award.

Overall, Chevy is the third most reliable brand that a driver can invest in today—and that means Chevy’s cars, trucks, and SUVs are all well above average where dependability is concerned.

Residual Value: Is a Chevy a Good Investment?

When a brand makes reliability a priority, their vehicles become good investments for first, second, and third owners alike. In other words, Chevy vehicles hold their value exceptionally well:

  • KBB expects the 2022 Chevy Silverado HD to hold its value better than any other heavy-duty truck on the market this year.
  • According to, the resale value of a seven-year-old Corvette is better than the seven-year resale value of any other vehicle. After five years, the Corvette is fourth among all models.

Whether you’re hoping to save on gas or you’re interested in buying an EV, sticking with Chevy is an excellent choice.
