It may seem like 2016 just got here, but 2017 model information is already trickling out, including over at General Motors. According to the company’s online fleet order guide–an annual source of product information–Chevrolet is ditching their LTZ trim level entirely in 2017 for a new one.
The replacement isn’t exactly new, either. The LTZ trim will be swapped out for “Premier” as the top-tier bowtie models. This doesn’t come as a huge surprise as the 2016 Cruze and Malibu both launched with Premier trim levels as top dogs.
GM’s order guide for 2017 has confirmed the change is occurring on the 2017 Impala, Equinox and Traverse. It’s a safe bet the rest of the brand will swap over as well. This is essentially Chevrolet’s marketing attempt at playing with Ford’s Titanium trim level and Hyundai’s Limited. Apparently a full word instead of letters makes a big difference?
