3 New Standard Features on the 2016 Chevy Equinox

2016 Chevy Equinox

The 2016 Chevy Equinox in Miami got revamped this year and comes with a slew of new standard features. That’s right, not a host of optional features, but standard ones. Typically, the opposite is true. A vehicle will get redesigned and receive a multitude of optional features and very little in the way of standard features. Thankfully, Chevy has always been good about putting its customers’ happiness first. These standard features include three particularly nice additions. The Equinox received a restyled front end that lends itself to a more modern design, along with a standard seven-inch diagonal color touch-screen on the base trims, and an increase in storage space thanks to a cleverly engineered inside.

2016 Chevy Impala

Chevy has asserted a strong presence in the sedan game recently, primarily because of the 2016 Chevy Impala. Taking a look at this car, the reasons are quite obvious as to why: It has a sleek, athletic design and a practical, good-looking interior. With cars, first impressions are everything. If the consumer doesn’t like it at first glance, chances are they never will. With that said, how does the Chevy Impala match up against the competition in terms of design? The 2016 Ford Taurus has seen multiple redesigns and upgrades over the course of its life as well, and is considered a titan in the American-made sedan market.

The 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition: Track-Ready Looks

2016 Chevy Corvette Z06 C7.R

Both the 2016 Chevy Corvette Z06 and C7.R have unprecedented levels of technology, engines, and engineering. However, where they mainly differ lies in what they look like. The C7.R has aesthetic qualities that make it look ready for the track; and stick out like a sore thumb if it were to ever leave it. Unlike the Z06, the CR.7 comes standard with the Z07 package, so it can experience the best performance on the track.

Chevy’s Most Affordable Car: The 2016 Spark

The 2016 Chevy Spark is not only Chevy’s most affordable car, but also one of the lowest-priced cars on the market. A starting MSRP of $12,660 for a new vehicle is hard to beat, especially for a car that gets this the type of fuel efficiency, technology, and safety features. A low price combined with state-of-the-art features and reliable performance is a potent combination, especially when it comes to compact cars.

Chevy Colorado Wins Truck of the Year, Two Years Running

That 2015 or 2016 Chevy Colorado in Miami you see driving around is a real winner. That wasn’t sarcasm; it’s actually a winner. Twice, to be exact, and two years in a row. For the years 2015 and 2016, the Chevy Colorado has been the winner of Motor Trend’s Truck of the Year Award. Which is definitely a slap in the face for Ford and Ram; and a bit of a conundrum. How was the same truck model able to win in 2015, and then again in 2016? Simple, because Chevy gave it an upgrade.

In the 2016 model year, the Colorado got a diesel engine, which gave it an edge over the competition in terms of performance. For the 2015 model year, Chevy just simply built a great truck.
