Staring Into The Future of the Traverse

 

The 2017 Chicago Auto Show ended not too long ago and is commonly known as a place where auto enthusiasts all over the world can expect to find some exciting new reveals when it comes to the model lineups of their favorite brands. Chevrolet, as one of the industry’s major giants, brought some of its own fun to the party.

Chevrolet brought some unexpected concept gimmicks to Chicago by partnering with Lego to build a life-size, functional Lego Batmobile, to promote the Lego Batman movie that is currently in theaters. In addition, Chevy showed up with ten different models dressed in the brand’s new Redline cosmetic package, which adds blacked-out features with red accents and will be available to customers as an option sometime this year.

The company also chose to debut two brand-new models – the 2018 Traverse and the 2018 Equinox – at the Chicago Auto Show this year.

Just glancing at any of the auto show highlights reel from the event in Chicago will tell you that Chevrolet knows how to work a crowd. From just-for-fun concepts to a sneak-peek at upcoming production models and packages, there’s something in Chevy’s auto show lineup to please everybody.

Chevy Bolt Wins Car of the Year Title

Car of the Year - 2017 Chevy Bolt NAIAS

The North American International Auto Show is held every year in Detroit and could easily be classified as the largest auto show in the United States. Each year, automakers all over the world flock to Detroit to show off their new wares in January, and NAIAS recognizes individual nameplates with awards like Car and Truck of the Year. This year, the Chevrolet Bolt EV took home the award for Detroit’s Car of the Year.

The Chevy Bolt has already won a few other honors, including Motor Trend’s Car of the Year back in November and the Green Car of the Year award given to the vehicle at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The Bolt seems to be collecting a heavy collection of awards, though it’s not unwarranted; with a sticker price below $30,000 and an electric range of around 238 miles on a single charge, the Chevy Bolt costs about half the price as the competition, including the Tesla Model S.

Kicking off 2017 with the Car of the Year award from the Detroit Auto Show isn’t anything to turn up your nose at, either. The Chevy Bolt has already started the New Year with a big win, an omen of its success as a highly-anticipated and much-needed member of the electric car segment.
