2018 Chevrolet Equinox: Lean, Mean… and Strong

1495422367510

The all-new Chevrolet Equinox has been completely redesigned for the 2018 model year; a redesign that includes shedding 400 pounds of extra weight! So, what do drivers gain by this 10% body-mass loss? For starters, our most popular crossover is now more agile on the road and offers drivers a more safe, comfortable driving experience.

Thanks to a lighter, stiffer, and stronger structure, the 2018 Equinox rewards drivers in the following areas:

SAFETY: High-strength and ultra-high strength steel creates a safety cage around its passengers, which are complimented by the high-level restraint systems and available safety features.

RIDE & HANDLING: By reducing the chassis flex in the Equinox suspension system, Chevrolet engineers were able to focus more on overall ride comfort and precision on the road.

QUIETNESS & REFINEMENT: The stiffer body-structure of the Equinox also pays off when it comes to blocking out exterior noise and vibrations. Contributing the overall weight loss of the Equinox, the stiffer body-structure also means that engineers could reduce the amount of sound-absorbing materials in the overall design.

FUEL ECONOMY: This might seem like a no-brainer, but we’re pretty excited about this added benefit of the 2018 Equinox! The lower the weight, the better then fuel efficiency. The all-new Equinox delivers EPA estimated 32MPG and 29MPG on the highway with the standard 1.5L turbo and 2.0L turbo engines. The diesel engine offers a GM-estimated 40MPG on the highway.

Chevrolet takes the Redline to the next level

Earlier this month at the Chicago Auto Show, Chevrolet announced the Redline special edition trim series across nine of its cars, trucks, and crossovers! Redline first made an appearance as a concept back in 2015 at the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) in Las Vegas and has since become a reality!

All models in the Redline series come equipped with unique accent packages: black wheels featuring red lines, black-out grilles, black badges and black Chevy bowtie logos. Depending on the vehicle, individual models will start to differ based on customers’ preferences.

Redline trims will be available to order on the 2017 Cruze Sedan, 2017 Cruze Hatch, 2017 Colorado, 2017 Camaro, 2017 Colorado, 2017 Silverado 1500, 2018 Malibu, 2018 Trax, 2018 Equinox, and 2018 Traverse.

“Our special edition lineup has been popular with customers and dealers, alike” said Chevrolet’s U.S. vice president Brian Sweeney. “Since the introduction of special editions on vehicles the like Silverado and Camaro, vehicle average transaction prices have increased, time to turn has decreased, and conquest rates have risen, which has contributed to making Chevrolet the fastest-growing brand in the industry two years in a row.”

Chevrolet: Made In America

According to data from TrueCar.com, the authoritative voice in new car pricing and industry trend information, the most popular cars purchased around the Fourth of July last year (June 27 – July 10, 2011), were either American brands or assembled in the USA.

“Last year around the Fourth of July the American new car buyer chose to purchase vehicles that were built in the USA or had an American nameplate,” said Kristen Andersson, Senior Analyst at TrueCar.com. “Made in the USA is a strong statement that resonates with consumers as evidenced by the vehicles most purchased around the 4th of July holiday. Due to the massive product improvements over the last few years by the domestic automakers, it is no longer a coincidence that American buyers would gravitate towards these vehicles…”

Chevrolet holds three of the top five spots of the Made in America models:

1. Silverado 1500 2WD Ext Cab

2. Cruze 4dr Sedan LTZ

5. Equinox FWD 4dr LTZ

Visit us at Bob Bell Bel Air Chevrolet for savings worth celebrating alongside Independence Day… We’re offering savings on the 2012 Cruze, Traverse, and Silverado until July 9th.

Chevrolet – 30 mpg or Better

Fuel prices are above $3.80 per gallon nationally… and it’s not going to drop drastically any time soon, or ever. As fuel prices continue to rise, customers are more interested in fuel-efficient compacts and hybrids to find relief from the pump.

A recent survey of car shoppers on kbb.com found that 51% of respondents are now considering a smaller, more fuel-efficient vehicle. “GM’s strategic investments in four-cylinder and turbocharged engines, advanced transmissions and vehicle electrification have been very well timed,” said Mark Reuss, president of GM North America. “Three years ago, about 16 percent of the vehicles GM sold achieved at least 30 mpg on the highway. Today, that number is about 40 percent, and we have more new fuel-economy leaders on the way…”

What are the GM fuel economy leaders on sale today? Here is the lowdown:                    (all mpg totals are estimated)

So if you’re looking for an environmentally responsible car that fits your budget and your lifestyle, visit Bob Bell Chevrolet of Bel Air, we have plenty of options for you.
