Automotive consumer site Edmunds.com graced nine Chevrolet vehicles with awards this week, split between the Top Rated and Most Popular categories.
Top rated vehicles are selected from a pool of 200, each going through a standardized test loop and are taken for a test run in controlled conditions on the Edmunds track. Following that, each car is given a grade in affiliation to it’s direct competition in its sector and price range. The cars that receive A’s get the Top Rated award. The Chevy recipients for this merit were none other than the 2014 Corvette Stingray and 2014 Traverse large crossover.
Separately, Edmunds also dished out the Most Popular vehicle award. This is based on tabulated data about how many unique visitors research vehicles on the website. Judges consider the car detail page, reviews, new car inventory and build and price tools before the decision is made. Among trucks, the 2015 Colorado, 2014 Traverse, 2014 Silverado 1500, and 2015 Tahoe were named the Most Popular Compact Truck, Large Crossover SUV, Large Truck, and Large SUV of 2014. 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.
“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 of Chevrolet.
