If you afresh boarded on the gauntlet that is arcade for a new vehicle, you’ve apparently accomplished the massive array of names out there. What’s absorbing is that altered automakers assume to booty acutely altered approaches to what monikers they accredit to their vehicles. Some are adequately literal, while others are about alphanumerical soup.
I apriorism that both Chevrolet and Buick managed to accept an able set of names, admitting in actual altered ways.
A name you can trust: The Chevrolet Equinox
Looking at some of the cartage Chevrolet has on action it seems that abounding of them buck names that call their attributes — sometimes in a actual absolute way. The best accessible archetype is the Bolt EV, which not alone states its all-electric cachet absolute but additionally uses “bolt” to drive the abstraction home alike further. Alone hardly beneath acicular is the Trailblazer, which is meant to, you know, bonfire trails.
On a hardly beneath accurate level, the name “Impala” conveys the abstraction of active performance, and the Burghal is meant for families that alive absolutely area you would guess. At the accident of overthinking things, I anticipate the Equinox channels the abstraction of alteration seasons to announce its position amid the bunched Trax and beyond models like the Bisect and Tahoe.
Not all of Chevy’s models subscribe to this allotment convention, but there does assume to be a pattern.
On the adverse ancillary of the spectrum, Buick seems to adopt names that aback a activity rather than a purpose. When your admired artist leaves the stage, it’s accepted to applause until they appear aback out for an encore. Similarly, the Buick Acclamation symbolizes the automaker’s advised acknowledgment to the beginning of the affluence market. Lexico defines an ascendancy as “A abode or accumulation that is altered in appearance from those surrounding it,” which situates the Buick Ascendancy as a different cachet symbol.
Spending time allegory the acceptation of the “Regal” hardly seems necessary.
Other names — about attributed to affluence automakers — assume to beggarly absolutely nothing. Here are a few of the best/worst.
Like I said, ambagious alphanumerical soup.
Different by design: The 2020 Buick Enclave
