Midnights, RSs, and Sports, oh my!
According to Chevrolet, their blacked-out trim packages are the candy everybody wants. Last year, 20 percent of Chevrolet Trax buyers chose either the Midnight or Sport packages, and one-third of Chevy Blazers went out the door with the RS package. So, guess what that means? More Midnight, more Sport, and more RS packages! Blacked-out trim for everyone!
Chevrolet’s full-size Traverse gets the Midnight and Sport packages along with a host of other updates for 2021. For those unfamiliar, the Midnight Edition will be “murdered-out,” with metallic black paint, as well as a blacked-out grille, wheels, roof rails, and badging, including the bowtie logo.
Don’t want your Traverse quite that murder-y? Then you’ll want the Sport Edition, which gives you a choice of paint colors all garnished with black for the grille, fog light bezels, wheels, roof rails, and badging. Both trim packages are available on LS and LT trim levels. Traverse Premiere buyers, meanwhile, can still get the not-quite-as-blacked-out Redline package.
The RS trim package (which, back in the day, stood for Rally Sport) is coming to the mid-size 2022 Chevrolet Equinox with a gloss-black grille, blacked-out roof rails, badging, nameplates, as well as a black interior with red stitching and an RS shift knob. The Equinox RS also gets 19-inch Dark Android wheels; No word on whether there will be Dark IOS wheels for Apple fans.
Can’t wait for next year? Well, you’ll be relieved to know you can get the Midnight and Sport packages on several 2020 Chevrolet models, including the Silverado, Malibu, Blazer, Tahoe, and Suburban, as well as RS versions of the Sonic and Malibu. Thank goodness.
