In a recent study released by J.D. Power and Associates, Chevrolet ranked highest with the most first-place models compared to other car manufacturers.  J.D. Power and Associates’ awards are very prestigious and the results are important to car manufacturers because they are based on how much consumers like the new vehicles they purchased.  If you’re in the market for a Chevrolet in Grand Rapids there are many models you can choose.  Below are the three models that are being recognized by J.D. Power and Associates as top picks.

Subcompact Sonic

The Sonic is a subcompact version of Chevy’s popular Cruze sedan and was just introduced this year.  It ranks high as one of the best bets for cost and style conscious drivers.  This car is a stand out in safety and has been picked as the safest subcompact car on the market.  The Sonic is a well-rounded vehicle that appeals to many consumers.  This Chevy is available in a two-door, four-door, and hatch back style so you can choose the car that suits your lifestyle.   If you’re looking for the best of the bunch out of the Fit, Accent, Fiesta, and Yaris, you should choose Chevrolet’s Sonic.

Compact Volt

The Volt is a five-door compact hatchback, which is also General Motor’s first electric car.  If you’re an eco-friendly consumer who is looking for a set of wheels that runs on battery, this is a great choice for you.  Another great thing about the Volt is that in many cases buyers are eligible for a $7,500 Federal tax credit that rewards you for helping the environment.  The Volt provides drivers with 25 to 40 miles of battery charge, plus an additional 300 miles from a gasoline engine generator that sends power directly to the car’s motor.  The Volt is a great choice for anyone who is looking to make a helpful impact on the Earth in a compact car.

Avalanche Pickup

If you’re in the market for a pickup, the Avalanche is a great choice.  It is a four-door pickup that has the ability to be a truck as well as give you the room that an SUV would offer.  The truck offers many options that allow you to extend the length of the truck bed with a “Midgate.”  The Avalanche is easily transformable and very convenient for those looking for the usefulness of a truck, but the practicality of a SUV.

Through the research conducted by J.D. Power and Associates, we see that Chevy’s are very popular with consumers.  Check out a Chevrolet in Grand Rapids to see for yourself what consumers are talking about.
