Chevy Reveals Special Edition Models for Equinox and Traverse

If you’re a fan of Chevy’s popular Equinox and Traverse SUVs, you’re in luck. Chevrolet recently unveiled several Special Edition models for the two nameplates: two for the Equinox and one for the Traverse. Known as the Chevy Equinox Midnight and Sport Editions and the Traverse Graphite Edition, these three models add cool cosmetic touches to the two different nameplates to give them an extra dose of style.

The Equinox is one of the most popular compact SUVs on the market, and the Midnight and Sport Editions are only available on its LT trim level. The Midnight Edition comes in Mosaic Black Metallic, while the Sport Edition is Summit White. Touches such as black grilles and Chevrolet logos, black 18-inch wheels, other blacked-out accents, and leather-appointed seats give both models a sleek, sporty appearance.

Meanwhile, the Traverse Graphite Edition is only available on the 2LT trim with the body color available in Mosaic Black Metallic, Tungsten Metallic, Siren Red Tintcoat, and Iridescent Pearl Tricoat. It will also receive black Chevy bowties in addition to 20-inch Dark Charcoal wheels.

The Special Edition models of the Equinox and Traverse were released to give potential buyers extra incentive to buy before both nameplates are redesigned next year for 2018. If you’re looking for an SUV with unique flair, try one of these with the Special Edition packages equipped.

Don’t Miss These Fall Car Care Tips

fallThere is a definite chill in the air now as the days continue to get shorter. As you settle into your autumn routine, make sure to take some time now to take care of your car before winter arrives. Here are some fall car care tips to help prevent some major breakdowns when the weather really gets cold.

  • Read your owner’s manual. Your owner’s manual includes a list of routine maintenance you should have done on a regular basis. If you’ve missed some of this maintenance, get your car back on track.
  • Resolve performance issues. If your engine just doesn’t drive the way it should or you experience hard starts, rough idling, or stalling, get these issues resolved now as they will intensify with cold weather.
  • Keep your tank full. A fuel tank that is kept full helps prevent moisture from forming in the fuel lines. That moisture can freeze in the winter, so try to keep your tank full.
  • Check your HVAC system. Make sure your heater and your air conditioner are in good working order. Your A/C still plays an important role in the colder months as it removes moisture from the air via the defroster.
  • Inspect your lights. As the days get shorter, you’ll be using your lights more. Make sure all of your exterior lights are working and angled correctly.

If you want to get your car ready for colder weather, schedule an appointment with College Chevrolet Buick.
