FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CHICAGO (Feb. 12, 2015) – Chevrolet debuted the all-new 2016 Chevrolet Equinox, a refresh of the current model with updated styling and new features, and the 2015 Silverado Custom during the Chicago Auto Show’s Media Preview.

The 2016 Chevrolet Equinox features a deeper, wider grille that will bring it closer in line with newer Chevrolet products. It also boasts a restyled front fascia and a refreshed interior in order to give the crossover an updated look. The Equinox is available with 4-cyclinder or 6-cylinder engine option. The all-new Equinox is expected to go on sale later this year. The Equinox is one of Chevrolet’s best-selling vehicles and is designed and engineered for the rapidly growing compact crossover segment.

“The Equinox is one of the highest volume products,” said Brian Sweeney, U.S. vice president for Chevrolet. “There are more than one million Equinoxes on the road today, many of them here in Chicago.”

The 2015 Silverado Custom features 20-inch aluminum wheels, chrome bumpers, a body-colored top cap above the front bumper, and chrome mirror caps and door handles. It also features four full doors for easier access to the front and rear seats, a 40/20/40 cloth front seat, tilt steering wheel, cruise control, power windows and door locks and Chevy MyLink with 4G LTE WiFi.

When equipped with the available 5.3L EcoTec3 V-8 and color-keyed carpeting, a 2WD Silverado Custom starts at $33,820. A similarly equipped 4×4 model starts at $37,800. Dealers can order Silverado Customs starting this month.
