Chevrolet has expanded its special edition model selection to include the Equinox and Traverse SUVs for 2017.
Currently available for purchase, the Equinox Midnight and Sport Editions, and the Traverse Graphite Edition, join the Trax Midnight Edition and the company’s portfolio of special edition vehicles.
“Special Editions resonate with buyers, offering a unique package with unique looks,” says Betsy Flegg, senior manager of 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.”
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.
Both models feature a black grille and Chevrolet bowties (logo), black 18-inch aluminum wheels, perforated leather-appointed seats, memory settings for the driver’s seat and exterior mirrors, black mirror caps, color touchscreen radio, standard rear vision camera, and roof rack crossbars.
Available in Mosaic Black Metallic, Tungsten Metallic, Siren Red Tintcoat, or Pearl Tintcoat, the 2017 Traverse Graphite Edition is available on the 2LT model. It features 20-inch Dark Charcoal wheels, dual exhaust, black Chevrolet bowties, available connectivity, and an integrated assist step.
Equinox sales are up 8 percent and Traverse had its best month ever, with retail sales up 24 percent in the month of July, and Chevrolet retail crossover sales were up 20 percent last month for the company’s best July overall.
