2016 Volt improvements
The development of the 2016 Chevy Volt was certainly a huge undertaking by Chevrolet, General motors and the design/engineering team that worked on the project. During the unpleasantness of the “Great Recession” there were many people who didn’t believe the Chevy Volt was ever going to see the outside of the room where it existed on paper. Once it was released to the public, a small, but fierce and loyal following started supporting its production through buying and leasing it and them doing it again with another model. The 2016 Volt marks the second generation of the Chevy gas electric hybrid and a peak behind the curtain was revealed. (more…)
Interior of the 2016 Volt
The news keeps rolling out about the fantastic 2016 Chevy Volt that is making its way to Chevrolet of Naperville next year. We have already discussed the performance of the new Chevy hybrid. However, as we see more photos of the interior of the 2016 Volt and learn more about all of the elements that are included, we simply get more impressed. The forward portion of the passenger cabin features a kind-of dual-cockpit design that is featured in other Chevy passenger cars like the Impala.

Release date for the 2016 Chevy Volt
Chevrolet took center stage on Monday with the unveiling of the second generation 2016 Chevy Volt. The new electric/gasoline hybrid has been greatly improved over the previous versions to include vastly improved range as well as improved acceleration and braking. Additionally, the new design of the new Volt is sleeker and sportier. The release date for the 2016 Chevy Volt is set for the second half of 2015. In terms of General Motors’ time, this would allow for a delivery period to Chevrolet of Naperville of mid-summer; right at the peak of driving season. This is certainly one of the biggest items to come from Chevy at the Detroit Auto Show.

One of the headliners in the automotive world, was the sneak peak of the 2016 Chevy Volt at CES. By all accounts we have found online of the event, is that there were enough lights to put an 80s rock and roll show to shame and only the front end of the new car was shown.

Although those answers will come next week when the 2016 Volt in officially unveiled at North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
All-Wheel Drive Vehicles
The popularity of all-wheel drive vehicles has risen quite a bit, along with the increase in the desire for more small crossover and utility vehicles.

Chevy engineers have already managed to give drivers the technology to ensure they very rarely need to use the gasoline range extender. These ideas for new technologies for the 2016 Volt are not just good hypotheses that made it into production. The engineers working on the new car used previous owner feedback to ensure they were hitting all of the notes to make the new Volt a more user-friendly vehicle. (more…)
