Best Cars for Coastal Adventurers | Wilmington, NC
When it comes to traveling along the coastline, there are a few Chevy models best suited for those adventures. The models below will allow you to shift smoothly from everyday driving to weekend relaxation when you pack up your vehicle and head to one of North Carolina’s gorgeous beaches.
When you’re packing up your gear for a weekend fishing trip, there’s no better companion than the Chevrolet Colorado. Choose the 2.8-liter turbo diesel version to enjoy best-in-class maximum available towing, rated at 7,700 pounds1. Add on the six-foot bed cargo net to secure your cooler, tent, chairs, and other beach gear. You can also opt for roof racks so you can stow a kayak or paddle boards on top of the cabin.
The hatchback model of the Chevrolet Cruze is the perfect mode of transportation for couples and young families who stay active outdoors. Fold the second row of seats down to access up to 47.2 cubic feet of cargo space, perfect for stowing camping equipment, a cooler, and lawn games. Even with backseat passengers, the hatchback design enables easy access to the trunk so you can unload your possessions. Select the 1.6-liter turbo-diesel powertrain to achieve 48 mpg on the highway to save some cash during your trip2.
When you want more space for friends and family members, the Chevy Equinox has you covered. When you need that extra space for cargo, collapse the rear seat to take advantage of 63.5 cubic feet of room in the trunk area. The 1.6-liter turbo-diesel engine yields an impressive 39 mpg on the highway, so you can have a fun trip while staying within your budget3. The optional hitch carrier can accommodate bicycles for a ride near the beach, and you can also choose the Protection Package to enhance the durability of the cabin with shielding features such as premium all-weather floor mats and rear custom molded splash guards.
Choose the right vehicle to keep up with your outdoor excursions, whether you’re hiking trails, off-roading, or paddling along the scenic coast. Any of these versatile models can be taken for a test drive at Jeff Gordon Chevrolet.
