Chevrolet Equinox is a Highly Popular Crossover SUV in the Boston Area

The Chevy Equinox is one of America’s favorite small crossover SUVs thanks to its combination of stylish design, comfort, and practicality. (Equinox sales are up more than 11 percent this year compared to last.) This is especially true in the Boston Area, where Equinox continues to be a very popular model.


One of the most appealing features of the Equinox is the availability of a powerful V6 engine. In recent years many automakers have stopped offering a V6 in their small crossover segment due to fuel economy concerns or a lack of consumer demand. This leaves the Equinox as one of only a few models in 2014 that offers a six cylinder small crossover.

Even though the Equinox has a powerful engine, EPA fuel economy estimates for the Equinox are 22 mpg city/32 mpg highway and 26 mpg combined with front-wheel drive, and 20/29/23 with all-wheel drive. Impressive indeed.

Since Equinox received high marks from JD Power in their rankings for initial quality, there is little doubt new car shoppers appreciate this Chevy model’s overall build quality.

The Equinox also has very impressive ride comfort and overall quietness of its cabin. In addition, the Equinox’s rear seats recline and slide back to give second-row passengers outstanding legroom.

A rearview camera is standard on all trims except the LS. Standard on the LTZ and optional on the 2LT are rear parking sensors and frontal collision/ lane departure warning systems.

2014 Chevrolet Volt Pricing – Boston

The 2014 Volt will offer the same impressive list of features as last year- but for $5,000 less.



Pricing for the 2014 model will start at $34,995. The Volt’s lower price will broaden its exposure to price-sensitive

prospective buyers using these sites to search for a plug-in electric vehicle or a gas-powered alternative sedan.

The Volt continues to be the best selling plug-in vehicle in America and is attracting new buyers to the Chevrolet brand. More than 70 percent of Volt buyers are new to General Motors. Not surprisingly, the Toyota Prius is the most frequently traded-in vehicle for a Volt. (The Boston Area is a strong market for the Chevy Volt.)

The Chevrolet Volt allows gas-free driving for an EPA-estimated 38 miles (61 km), depending on terrain, driving techniques and temperature. The range-extending engine gives the Volt up to 380 total miles (615 km) of total driving range. The 2014 Volt will start to be available in dealer showrooms late this summer. Chevrolet will introduce two new colors – Ashen Gray Metallic and Brownstowne Metallic for the 2014 model year – and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Text-to-Voice converts incoming messages to speech, reads them over the audio system in the car, and allows the driver to reply with preset messages such as, “I’m driving right now- I’ll contact you later.” (Users can create and save their own preset messages when the vehicle is in Park.)
