Chevrolet is offering seven 2014 vehicles with 5-Star NHTSA ratings

Chevrolet is offering seven 2014 model year vehicles that gained 5-Star Overall Vehicle Scores for safety from the United States National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Chevrolet's 5-Star lineup is even larger than any other brand and Ford and Toyota combined. Using its New Car Assessment Program testing, NHTSA awarded the 5-star Overall Score to the Chevrolet Sonic, Cruze, Volt, Impala, Traverse, Camaro Coupe and Silverado 1500 Crew Cab.

Sonic is the first and subcompact car to gain a 5-Star Overall Score from NHTSA.  When designing and engineering new vehicles, Chevrolet carefully considers federal motor vehicle safety standards and safety regulations. Around 40 percent of the crash load cases are based on regulatory requirements while 60 percent are based on General Motors’ internal requirements for vehicle safety and crashworthiness. According to GM research, safety is among the top 10 reasons for purchase.

According to 2012 calendar year sales data, around 54 percent of Chevrolet, Cadillac, GMC and Buick buyers surveyed said that safety features are “extremely important” in making a purchase. The same percentage of buyers industry-wide likewise listed safety features as “extremely important.”  Gay Kent, GM’s general director of Vehicle Safety and Crashworthiness, remarked that they design safety and crashworthiness into their vehicles "very early in development,” adding that they are committed to offering advanced safety technologies on a broad range of models.

He noted that all of their vehicles are designed to "provide continuous protection for customers before, during and after a crash."GM has installed several active safety technologies -- including forward collision alert and lane departure warning -- on many new Chevrolet vehicles, from small cars to big trucks.

The all-new 2013 Chevy Traverse crossover-utility provides families a new place to gather with more elegance, fine-tuning, and safety. Later in the year, the vehicle goes into assembly, adding to the room, comfort, and effectiveness that made the Chevrolet Traverse so beloved.

The all-new Traverse is a family automobile but it comes without compromises. It has more capability than most SUVs, with as much space as a minivan and more practicality as well. The Traverse is smart, able, and poised, especially where people need it the most.

Chevrolet’s 2013 Traverse has an all-new, sporty exterior styling, perfected with a more dramatic front that debuts a new fascia for Chevy’s crossover utility vehicles.

The front has a new form sustained by a power-dome bonnet, a three-bar upper and two-bar lower grille, new lights, chromed accents surrounding the grille and fog lights, and sculptured front edges that resemble Malibu sedans. The new design encapsulates the total personality of Chevrolet's new vehicle line-up, for a coherent family semblance.

Phillip Zak, GM’s exterior design director, states that the company infused a more powerful presence into the Traverse’s exterior by fixating on details. The minute but significant modifications provide it with a more vivid character that more faithfully illustrates the routines of families who depend on the Traverse to navigate them through their demanding lives.

At the back, redesigned lights and the license plate area are located in the new liftgate for a more athletic look.
