    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.

  • Chevy Traverse Tops USAA “Best Value” List Again

    Looking for a vehicle that’s consistently rated above the competition? Want an SUV that is affordable, safe, and reliable? Well you can stop your search because we have the right vehicle for you, the Chevy Traverse.

    The United Services Automobile Association (USAA) publishes a list, each year, of the best vehicles based on the aforementioned factors. In 2012 only one vehicle in the “Large SUV” class was a repeat winner and given the “USAA Preferred” status –Chevy Traverse.

    We’ve touched a bit on what the USAA is looking for when ranking vehicles – cost, safety, and reliability, but let’s break that down a bit more to find out why the 2012 Chevy Traverse is USAA Preferred vehicle. First let’s examine reliablity.


    With a five-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, the Traverse ranks in the tops of its class.

    In judging the cost of a vehicle you have to look past the sticker price. There are plenty of other costs associated with owning a car like insurance, gas, and repair cost.  Chevy Traverse has an MSRP starting at $29,660, comparable to many in its class, but the Traverse bested all other large SUV’s for insurance value.  If you don’t want to spend a bunch of time at the pump, Traverse’s 17/24 MPG (City/Highway) will help you stay on the road longer and keep money in your pocket.

    We can’t forget that Traverse comes standard with 6 air bags, StabiliTrak stability control system and traction control, tire pressure monitoring system, and OnStar equipped. With safety features like these the Traverse certainly stacks up in a tough class full of family safe vehicles.

    It’s clear that Chevrolet hit the mark with the Traverse, we just can’t wait for them to hit it again with the 2013 edition.
