The USAA—a Fortune 500 company committed to providing insurance and financial products to over 7.7 million members and former members of the U.S. military and their families—recently released its lineup of Best Values for 2011, and Chevrolet led all brands by putting three vehicles on the list, including:
Chevrolet Cruze—Chevy’s all-new compact was the top pick among Small Sedans, giving consumers yet another important reason to choose the Cruze. The award-winning Chevrolet product also boasts the highest fuel-efficiency in its class, with the Cruze Eco posting EPA ratings of up to 29 mpg city/42 mpg highway.
Chevrolet Traverse—In the Large SUV segment, the USAA gave the nod to the Chevy Traverse, which offers a strong mix of efficiency, comfort and convenience. The Traverse can seat up to eight, reach up to 24 mpg highway and provide upscale levels of content, including a rear-seat entertainment center, GM’s StabiliTrak electronic stability control system and a full suite of air bags.
Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid—Setting the pace in the Large Pickup category was the hybrid version of the popular Chevrolet Silverado 1500. The innovative Silverado hybrid combines the heart of a work truck—boasting a 6,100-lb. towing capacity—and the same fuel-efficiency in the city as a Toyota Camry (with a V6): The Silverado Hybrid posts an EPA line of 20 mpg city/23 mpg highway/21 mpg combined, and that’s in both two- and four-wheel-drive configurations.
The USAA made its recommendations based on factors like affordability, lifetime costs, depreciation and safety, and only selected vehicles that received Good or Acceptable marks from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
