Chevrolet Expands 2017 Special-Edition "Bold" SUV Selection
Chevrolet has announced that it will expand its popular special-ddition model variants that feature bolder, more aggressive looks because of the popularity of the Midnight Edition Trax small crossover SUV. The 2017 Equinox compact crossover SUV will be available in both Midnight and “white as light” Sport Edition versions, while the 2017 Traverse midsize crossover SUV can be ordered in a Graphite Edition. The trio of special-edition SUVs are now available to order at Chevy retailers.
The flagship General Motors brand plans to introduce a 2017 Midnight Edition Equinox for the LT trim level with the Convenience package that will be painted in Mosaic Black Metallic. Features on the Equinox Midnight Edition include a black grille and badging, black 18-in. aluminum wheels, and black mirror caps and roof rack bars. Inside the cabin, this special-edition Equinox will be equipped with perforated jet-black leather seats that also include memory settings. The Sport Edition Equinox will come in Summit White.
In addition, Chevrolet will offer its Graphite Edition on the 2017 Traverse 2LT trim level. This special-edition Traverse will be available in a choice of Mosaic Black Metallic, Tungsten Metallic, Siren Red Tintcoat, or Iridescent Pearl Tricoat exterior paint colors. The Traverse Graphite Edition will ride on large 20-in. wheels in Dark Charcoal. Dual exhausts, black Chevrolet badging, and an assist step bar also are part of the package, as is a navigation system and tow package.
The three alternative special-edition packages may boost interest in the Traverse, which will be revised for the 2018 model year, and the Equinox, which also is set to be redesigned for 2018. Pricing has not yet been announced for the special editions.
