Chevrolet has announced it is expanding its popular special edition models to include the Equinox and Traverse SUVs for 2017. The Chevrolet Equinox Midnight and Sport Editions and Traverse Graphite Edition join the Trax Midnight Edition and a growing portfolio of Chevrolet special edition vehicles.
The new SUVs have proven popular with customers, with special edition Chevy trucks selling up to three times faster than the average truck and to younger, more affluent buyers.
“Special Editions resonate with buyers, offering a unique package with unique looks,” said Betsy Flegg, senior manager, Chevrolet SUVs. “We’ve already seen a strong interest with the Trax Midnight Edition when we announced production last December. We anticipate customers will strongly like the looks of the new Equinox Midnight and Sport Editions and Traverse Graphite Edition.”
“Special Editions give consumers an opportunity to buy something outside of the mainstream trim designation,” said Karl Brauer, senior director, automotive industry insights, Kelly Blue Book.
The 2017 Equinox Midnight Edition is offered in Mosaic Black Metallic, while the Sport Edition is offered in Summit White. Both are offered on the LT model and require the available Convenience Package. Content for both includes: Black grille and Chevrolet bowties, Black 18-inch aluminum wheels, Jet-black perforated leather-appointed seats with Memory settings for the driver’s seat, exterior mirrors, Black mirror caps and roof rack crossbars.
The newest Equinox features styling with premium accents, wheel designs and available safety features, as well as a large available color touchscreen radio and a standard rear-vision camera for entry-level models.
Considered the perfect crossover SUV for those looking for a roomy interior, the Chevy Traverse is available with advanced safety features to go along with a comfortable ride, a host of connectivity options, and the whole nine yards. Traverse provides class-leading interior space and flexible seating for up to eight adults. It also boasts more cargo-carrying capacity than any other vehicle in its segment.
The 2017 Traverse Graphite Edition is available exclusively on the 2LT model and its features include: Mosaic Black Metallic, Tungsten Metallic, Siren Red Tintcoat and Iridescent Pearl Tricoat exterior colors, 20-inch Dark Charcoal wheels, Dual exhaust, Black Chevrolet bowties and Integrated Assist Step.
