The Chevrolet Equinox continued to impress customers at Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet all throughout last month, and even managed to score its best January performance ever with nearly 20,000 models sold in the country.

That marks a 34 percent increase over the same period last year and builds upon the fifth consecutive year of record sales. Last year, the Equinox became the second-best selling vehicle in Chevrolet’s lineup, behind the Silverado full-size pickup, and accounted for more than 9 percent of the rapidly-growing compact SUV market.

“The Equinox continues to win customers with its value-driven balance of performance, versatility and personal connectivity,” said GM North America President Alan Batey. “It also represents the depth of Chevrolet’s strong SUV lineup, ranging from the all-new Trax small SUV and Traverse to the redesigned 2015 Suburban and Tahoe.”

While announcing the performance, Chevy used the opportunity to inform us about the upcoming 2016 Equinox that was revealed at the Chicago Auto Show. The crossover’s front fascia, features new headlamps and LED running lights.

Equinox, Silverado to Feature in Chevrolet Fountain at Comerica Park

General Motors has sponsored the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park since 2000—first with the General Motors Fountain up to 2008, then with the Chevrolet Fountain starting in 2010. This year, when you go to Detroit to eat a hot dog and watch the highest paid player in baseball hit some homers, you’ll be able to see the ball soar right over the Chevrolet Equinox and Silverado adorning the 2014Chevrolet Fountain out in center field.

2014 Silverado at Chevrolet Fountain“Chevrolet is the Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball and what better symbol can there be than having our vehicles in such a prominent place in our hometown stadium?” asked Paul Edwards, vice president of Chevrolet marketing. You’ll get your chance to see the Equinox and Silverado bookending the fountain when the Detroit Tigers take on the Kansas City Royals on Opening Day.

The vehicles were lifted into place by a crane this past Thursday, a quick four days before Opening Day. If you can’t make the drive up to Detroit, you can come see those two popular vehicles—plus the rest of our great inventory—down here at Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet.
