SUVs Winning Over Drivers in Salem and Beyond

SUVs make their drivers happy. Why do we say that? Because while we can’t read minds, we can read data. And if recent data tells us anything, it’s that people aren’t just buying SUVs, they’re sticking with them.

A recent study looking at consumer data from the beginning of 2017 found that an impressive 66 percent of SUV owners looking to buy new cars, bought new SUVs. This is a big jump from 2012 when those numbers were only 53 percent. It’s also significantly above industry averages which also fall lower. The big question, of course, is why so many drivers have fallen in love with SUVs and crossovers. The answer? Versatility.

Take the 2017 Chevrolet Traverse. With foldable seats that can give it a 116 cubic feet of cargo space and a 5,200 pound towing capacity, it’s more than capable of being a workhorse when you need one. The rest of the time you can unfold the seats and carry up to eight passengers who can enjoy the benefits of its built-in 4G Wi-Fi hotspot, MyLink infotainment system and five-star safety ratings.
