Chevy Equinox 2010 won the Urban Truck of the Year title

2009 ends and all the manufacturers worldwide show off their latest units, managing the sales, plus getting some awards too.

Chevrolet is proud of its Equinox, model that won the Urban Truck of the Year by On Wheels Media title. This prize will be handed to Chevy Equinox at the 2010 NAIAS (North American International Auto Show).

Randi Payton, president at On Wheels Media affirmed 'The Urban Vehicle of the Year resonates with the majority of new car buyers who live in urban and suburban areas, who drive on crowded road conditions. The vehicles chosen are cost and fuel efficient, and have the performance and safety characteristics that are relevant to the consumers in Metropolitan areas'.

Jim Campbell, General Manager of Chevrolet continued 'We are very proud to be recognized as the Urban Truck of the Year. Urban Truck of the Year panelists select their favorite vehicle based on factors such as safety, fuel efficiency, performance and affordability'.

'Those are the same factors that our customers rate as key reasons they purchased an Equinox. In fact, the Equinox has been such as hit with customers that we added a third shift at CAMI assembly – and are still struggling to meet demand'.

This Urban Truck of the Year title is chosen carefully after it passes all the 15 car journalists' scrutiny from a few publications. Way to go Chevy!
