NEW YORK – Edmunds.com has recognized seven Chevrolet models with nine awards for 2014. The Corvette Stingray and Traverse were named Top Rated Vehicles, while the Corvette Stingray, Traverse, Colorado, Camaro, Impala, Silverado 1500, and Tahoe were named Most Popular for their segment.
“Today’s Chevrolet lineup is the best in the brand’s history and these awards from Edmunds.com are further proof that we are delivering the expressive designs, easy-to-use technologies, safety and performance that consumers want,” said Brian Sweeney, U.S. vice president, Chevrolet.
The Top Rated Vehicle award is selected from a field of 200 cars, which are all subjected to a standardized test loop, and goes to Edmund’s test track for instrumented testing in controlled conditions. Each car is then given a grade in relation to its direct competition in its segment and price range. Those that earn an “A” rating are awarded the Top Rated Vehicle Award.
The Most Popular Award is tied to the number of unique visitors to each model’s research and inventory pages on Edmunds.com. The number of visitors to the model’s detail page, reviews, build and price tools, and new car inventory pages are tabulated, and the top three models are given the Most Popular Vehicle Award.
In the car category, the Camaro was named Most Popular Entry Sport Car of 2014, the Impala the Most Popular Large Car of 2014, and the Stingray the Most Popular Midrange Sports Car of 2014. Among trucks, the Colorado, Traverse, Silverado 1500, and Tahoe were named the Most Popular Compact Truck, Large Crossover SUV, Large Truck, and Large SUV of 2014, respectively.
