Chevy’s Alternative Fuel Engines on 2017 Heavy-Duty Trucks

Alternative fuel engines

The growing need and want for alternative fuel options in vehicles is more prevalent than ever before. What is interesting is that many truck drivers care about fuel efficiency and alternative fuel options. That is why Chevy has partnered with Power Solutions International (PSI), a well-known company for alternative fuel, to create heavy-duty trucks that are fuel efficient, durable and strong.  

Types of Alternative Fuel

There are many different types of alternative fuels and some alternative fuels are more popular and beneficial than others. Some of the most popular types of alternative fuels include natural gas, hydrogen, and of course, electric and they each have their own benefits and drawbacks.

The most popular fuel alternative option is electric vehicles. These vehicles use absolutely no gas or fuel of any sort because they are powered by battery that is charged by electricity. These vehicles are becoming increasingly popular as they have evolved to last longer between charges, as well as create just as much power as fuel run vehicles. Read the rest of this entry >>

Miami Lakes Chevrolet most loved vehicles

It’s no surprise that Chevrolet earned three spots on Strategic Vision’s Most Loved Vehicles List of 2016. Like the annual J.D. Power does for the Initial Quality Study, Strategic Vision surveys drivers with new cars about their experience with their new vehicle. However, Strategic Vision asks drivers to evaluate the vehicle on their “love” for the car rather than on the quality of the car. Here’s a quick look at the three Chevy models that were “most loved” in their class.

Mid-Size Alternative Powertrain (APT) Car: 2016 Chevy Volt

For the 2016 model year, Chevy introduced an all-new redesigned model of the Chevy Volt. The new model’s exterior, interior and motor had all been upgraded and its new features helped it win several awards.

The Chevy Volt is a plug-in electric hybrid vehicle, so it is powered by a battery, gas or a combination of both. Thanks to Chevy’s use of regenerative braking, the Volt has an excellent battery range of 53 miles and when the gas and battery systems work together, the Volt has a combined city/highway range of 106 MPGe. In addition to being efficient, the Volt is spacious and attractive, a trait that many PHEVs lack.

Premium Coupe: 2016 Chevy Corvette

Last year the Corvette Convertible was the most loved premium convertible and this year it takes the title as the most loved premium coupe. Powered by a 6.2-liter V8 engine, the Corvette accelerates from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds and it hugs corners and curves like a professional race car.
