DePaula Chevrolet is the Key to Summer Fun in Albany

Now that it’s finally summer time here in Albany, it’s time to make the most out of everything this great city has to offer. While there are countless attractions and plenty of fun things to do in the area, it’s tough to do any of them without reliable transportation. Luckily, Albany is not only home to great attractions like Washington Park, the New York State Capitol, Albany Pine Bush Preserve and the New York State Museum; it’s also home to DePaula Chevy, seven time winner of the General Motors Mark of Excellence Award.

We know that no one wants to spend their summer visiting all the car dealerships in Albany, NY – no, you want to get out and enjoy all that Albany in the summer has to offer. So save yourself the hassle of shopping around and visit DePaula Chevy – we know Albany just as well as we know our inventory. So no matter if you’re planning on getting outside and hiking the great outdoors, or if you’re brushing up on your history and culture in our great museums, at DePaula Chevy, we’re here to help you get out there and enjoy the summer in a car that’s perfect for your adventures.


The Great Outdoors in a Great SUV

At DePaula Chevy, we offer a tremendous inventory of both new and used SUVs that are perfect for hauling all of your summertime gear around. Sure, it might be a bit of trek to get beachside, but why not visit one of Albany’s beautiful lakes? Brown’s Beach on Saratoga Lake, Cherry Plain State Park and Grafton Lakes State Park are all less than 45 minutes outside of Albany. Not only can you throw on a bathing suit and bask on the sandy shore of the lake, but you can also drop a kayak or canoe and get out on the water.

Of course, you’re going to need a car that can fit either a kayak or a canoe, right? At the very least you need to be able to get your beach chairs in the trunk. If you’re in need of a car that can fit coolers, chairs and small watercrafts, come check out the Chevy Equinox. With more than enough trunk space to fit your bocce ball set, the Equinox is perfect for packing up your pals, strapping down a kayak and heading to the state parks.

But maybe a kayak or a canoe isn’t exactly what you had in mind. If you’re looking to head out on a fishing expedition or just want to spend a day floating on your boat, the Chevy Tahoe is calling your name. With room for eight passengers and a maximum towing capacity of 8,600 pounds, you’ll easily be able to bring your boat (and all of your friends) with you.

Of course, those are just two of the SUVs you can find at DePaula Chevy. Our inventory is well-stocked and our models are well-equipped, so don’t be afraid to tell us exactly what your outside summertime goals are. We know there’s an SUV to suit any outdoor enthusiast.


Be Cultural in Your New Car

Just because the weather is nice doesn’t mean that you have to be outside every day. Sometimes it’s nice to wander around an air-conditioned museum – much like the Albany Institute of History and Art. Of course, we all know that parking can be a bit of pain in any city, so why not keep it simple and look at some of our sleek sedans, such as the Chevy Malibu? Easier to park than a Suburban, you’ll feel like a real city slicker when you parallel park with no problem, thanks to the Malibu’s rearview camera. Plus, the Malibu offers spacious seating and excellent cargo capacity, so you can rest assured that your passengers won’t worry if you get stuck in a little rush-hour traffic.


Save Your Money this Summer

You may also want to consider that sometimes gas prices rise in the summertime. If you’re looking to avoid paying at the pump, then swing into DePaula Chevrolet and let us introduce you to the Chevy Bolt EV – an electric car so great it was just named the 2017 MotorTrend Car of the Year. You’ll be able to get up to 238 miles on a full charge, and that’s some serious change in your pocket. Speaking of change in your pocket, you’ll also get a $7,500 federal tax rebate just for buying the Bolt EV. So if you’re looking to line your pockets with a little extra spending money this summer, skip the part-time job and just go electric with the Bolt EV.
