ELBURN, Ill. - April 15, 2014 - PRLog -- It gives the team at Bob Jass Chevrolet great pride to announce that the 2014 Chevy Equinox ( has earned the Top Safety Pick award from the experts at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

This prestigious marker of a safe new vehicle is not easy to attain, and the IIHS requires that a vehicle earn their highest ranking—good—in four out of their five crash tests. The fifth crash test, the brand new front overlap, must earn at least an “acceptable” or “good” as well before Top Safety Pick status can be conferred.

While many Top Safety Picks are chosen each year, the fact is that few are in the same class as the Equinox. Vehicles like the 2014 Toyota Highlander, 4Runner, and Ford Explorer all fell short of Chevy's Equinox. And then there are vehicles like the Honda Pilot and Mazda CX-9, which scored “poor” rankings in IIHS testing.

With crossovers and SUVs serving many drivers as family vehicles, high crash test ratings are as important as ever, and seeing so many of these models come up short when the Equinox has little trouble acing its exams is a bit disheartening for anyone looking at a vehicle like the Pilot or the CX-9.

Of course, there are many great reasons to drive an Equinox. Chevy gives drivers plenty of amenities to choose from, with high-tech features like Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, Chevy's MyLink infotainment system, OnStar telematics, and more. The incredible safety ratings are just the icing on the cake for this impressive SUV.
