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.
Don’t be surprised if you see a new Corvette driving down the streets in Miami. Chevrolet has released two awesome new 2017 Chevrolet Corvette models and you are bound to see them rollin’ down Biscayne or Ocean Drive. And after you see one, there is a good chance that you may be the next person with a new Chevrolet Corvette in Miami.
2017 Chevy Corvette Stingray
The Chevy Corvette Stingray was officially released in 1963, and the 2017 model is just as beautiful and it is more powerful. From the little details in the design and style to the extra performance features for handling and power, the new Corvette Stingray is a true beast.
Equipped with a 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine under the hood, that produces 460 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque and helps the Corvette Stingray to achieve its impressive acceleration of 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds.
To help reign in all of its horses, the Corvette Stingray is fitted with performance features like electric power steering, Brembo brakes, Michelin Pilot Super and Sport Zero Pressure tires. The Corvette Stingray also has features like an aluminum space frame, low beams with a single light engine, edge-lit LED turn signals framed in black chrome housing, four-element taillamps, high-mounted stop lamp, and an aerodynamic rear spoiler all give it a stealth yet sleek appearance.

Chevy has reached into the past to revisit an old name with their latest generation Corvettes. This year’s Stingray is a force to be reckoned with, and it would make its predecessors proud.
The Corvette is Chevy’s most classic car, and it has a long history of speed. Though it has seen its share of changes throughout the years, it remains one of the most recognizable cars of all time.
Looking back at the evolution of the Corvette, there are few models that stand out.
