The Chevrolet Silverado HD has picked up yet another accolade for being one of the most dependable heavy-duty trucks on the market. J.D. Power ranked the Silverado HD at the very top of the Large Heavy Duty Pickup segment in its recent 2021 Vehicle Dependability Study.

The Chevrolet Traverse is the ideal family SUV, not only because it’s spacious and versatile but also because it provides an especially quiet and relaxing ride. In fact, the Traverse was named one of the 17 Quietest Cars of 2020 by U.S. News & World Report for creating such a peaceful driving experience.
One of the reasons the Traverse is so quiet is thanks to its Active Noise Cancellation technology, which comes standard on the current generation. Whether you’re driving in Garland, Texas, or off the beaten path, this technology keeps the noise to a minimum by dampening vibrations and blocking out the outside sounds you don’t want to hear.
U.S. News & World Report also appreciates Active Noise Cancellation for minimizing the sounds of the SUV’s 310-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 engine. Plus, the Traverse is specifically designed to prevent wind noises from reaching the cabin.
The three-row SUV also comes with an array of interior amenities for your comfort and entertainment. The standard tri-zone automatic climate control keeps everyone cozy, while available leather upholstery adds refinement to the interior. The available Bose® premium audio system and the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System also create more enjoyable drives.
Choosing a safe, reliable vehicle for your teen driver can be a real struggle, as you need to sift through countless options to find the one that will keep your child as safe as possible. However, with the release of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s 2020 Safe Vehicles for Teens list, you can end your search with the Chevrolet Equinox.
Every year since 2014, the IIHS has evaluated used vehicles and compiled them into a collection of the best models for burgeoning drivers. In order to be listed as one of the top choices for teens, a car needs to achieve good ratings in the moderate overlap front, head restraint, side and roof strength tests. It must also have earned a minimum of four stars overall from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
According to the IIHS, 2016 or newer Chevrolet Equinox models more than fit the bill. In addition to earning the necessary scores, the current model also features the innovative Teen Driver technology. This advanced technology helps promote positive driving behaviors by letting you restrict some features and view an in-vehicle report card that summarizes your child’s driving performance.*
