Chevy’s “Ergo Chair” Simplifies Installation of Traverse Back Seat

The "Ergo Chair" makes one hard job easy.
The back seat of a Traverse is so comfortable that it alone sells the Traverse.

The Chevrolet Traverse was named one of the 12 Best Family Cars of 2014 by Kelley Blue Book—and it comes as no surprise to us here at Nehls Chevrolet. Usually, all it takes is one look into the Traverse’s cavernous and comfortable back seat, and customers are sold. Or in love. Whichever metaphor you prefer. Here’s the point: with separate infotainment and safety systems as well as special lights, climate control, and even coat hooks, the Traverse has one luxurious back seat.

When you’re trying to install such a complicated backseat on a crowded assembly line, you’re going to be facing some challenges. But Chevy devised a genius solution to all these challenges—the “Ergo Chair.” The “Ergo Chair” is a special chair that allows assembly workers to simply sit down and be carried to every position necessary to install complicated parts like those in the Traverse’s backseat.

“Our goal was to get the operator in and out of the vehicle in the safest and most ergonomic fashion to allow them to do the high amount of overhead and rear work required,” said Dave Bentoski, the lead designer of the Ergo Chair design team. Plus, the back seat they end up installing is just as ergonomic and safe as the Ergo Chair itself.

Save the World with the Super 2014 Chevy Traverse

Chevrolet's Captain America ad boasts the super 2014 Chevy Traverse.
Look for the 2014 Chevy Traverse in “Captain America: Winter Soldier” next month.

Do you love Captain America? We at Nehls Chevrolet do, and this month, Chevrolet launched a Captain America marketing campaign to promote its car lineup, including the super 2014 Chevy Traverse.

The result is a cute reenactment of the trailer for Captain America: Winter Soldier, played convincingly by adorable school children.

The film itself, slated for theaters on Friday, April 4, also features the 2014 Corvette Stingray. Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) is mostly associated with the Corvette in the film as she appears in the muscle car in the first 10 minutes.

“The Corvette represents technology, sophistication, intelligence, performance and beauty just like the Black Widow character,” GM’s general marketing director, Steve Tihanyi told Variety. “Being able to align the two made for a great opportunity to include the Corvette in the film.”

Still, in this latest ad from Chevrolet, the Traverse is at the center and will also have a prominent role in the movie.

“Our Chevy products are represented very well and are positioned in wonderful heroic roles and situations,” Tihanyi said.
