With Father’s Day fast approaching, do you know what you’re getting for Dad? Or are you at a loss for ideas, unsure that another set of golf clubs will cut it this year? Perhaps arming him with an incredible new SUV would be better than a “World’s Best Dad” mug. But which SUV is best?

To choose the best SUV for your Father’s Day gift, continue reading or simply swing into our Kansas City Chevrolet dealership. We have amazing Chevy specials on crossovers that will surely be right up Dad’s alley. Without further ado, here are the best Chevy SUVs to wrap up for Dad on June 17.

2018 Chevrolet Trax

For the on-the-go, never-slowing-down dad, the 2018 Chevy Trax may be what he’s looking for. The Trax is one of the smaller, more compact crossovers Chevy has rolled out; compact as it may be, it leaves nothing to be desired while also coming in at a lower price than rival SUVs in its class. It offers something for every type of dad.


Agile and sporty, the Chevrolet Trax keeps up with city-living whether Dad’s traveling to a pub in downtown Kansas City or enjoying a slower pace with the family at a park. Its compact body and responsiveness make the Trax easy to fit into the smallest parking spaces, and its rear camera and side blind zone alert help papa parallel park without problems.

Ample Storage

Avid tailgater on the weekends? Or handyman with loads of tools and no room to keep them? Either way, Dad will love the versatility and freedom of the Trax’s cargo area. With 8 different seating arrangements, the 2018 Trax has enough room for anything he needs to bring along.

Not only is the configurable seating useful for storage, but put down the front passenger seat and he’ll have 8 feet of cargo room to work with! Good luck filling all that space with tools. (Next year’s Father’s Day ideas, anyone?)

Cheaper Option

Maybe Dad isn’t looking to spend a fortune on a new car, or perhaps this will be his around-the-town, lets-do-projects SUV. Regardless of the intent, the Trax’s MSRP makes it one of the most affordable and convenient crossovers on the market. If he’s not sold on the idea of a new car because of the traditional new-car price tag, Chevy’s got him covered.

2018 Chevy Equinox

Have an outdoorsman dad who likes to camp, explore, and enjoy the wilderness? The Chevy Equinox may be the right choice! This mid-priced crossover has safety and functionality features galore, leaving him to enjoy life. The wide variety of interior and exterior color options are also a huge selling feature, and the choice is entirely up to Dad.


The turbocharged engine in the new Equinox makes towing a breeze, especially with the addition of the tow/haul button at Dad’s fingertips. When activated, the transmission automatically assists when hauling heavy loads up to 1500 pounds. Push Dad into an AWD Equinox with the 2.0L turbo, and he’ll have no problem towing his fishing boat thanks to a max trailering limit of 3500 lbs.

Hands-Free Liftgate

Hands full? Whether your dad plans on loading or unloading for the biggest camping trip of the year, he’ll be sure to thank you when he realizes his foot can open the hatch! Not only that, combine the hands-free liftgate with a programmable memory height, and Dad will have found his match made in heaven. (Sorry, Mom.)

Switchable All-Wheel-Drive

Navigating the rugged terrain of the great outdoors has never been easier with the Equinox. Available on select models is the switchable AWD feature, allowing Dad to toggle between four-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive for wherever the road takes him. This enhances traction and control on slippery surfaces to ensure he doesn’t skip a beat.


2018 Chevy Traverse

Powerful, sleek, roomy, and jam-packed with features (14), the new Chevrolet Traverse is one crossover that’s sure to make a statement. If Dad is finding himself with plenty of people and not enough seating, let him enjoy the Traverse, which is the perfect SUV for a family man or coach.

Third-Row Seating

Eight seats, endless opportunity for quality time, team bonding—you name it, the Traverse has got it. The Traverse’s third-row seating option allows Dad to travel with the people who mean the most to him. Not only that, but the smart slide seating makes it easier than ever to access the back row. Your dad can say goodbye to cramped quarters and hello to ease-of-access. No more sacrificing: the new Traverse offers the best of both worlds.

Noise-Canceling Cabin

With that many people in a vehicle, it can be difficult to hear one another. Don’t let the outside world make it harder. The noise-canceling cabin of the Traverse helps block out road noise so Dad only hears what’s going on inside.

Five-Star Overall Safety

Safety is number one when it comes to SUVs, and the Traverse does not fall short. Rated 5 stars in overall safety by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Dad can rest assured that his passengers are not only comfortable but safe.
