The 4 Most Anticipated 2016 Chevy Models
The 2016 model year is shaping up to be an exciting one for car buyers searching for a Chevrolet in Miami. Updates to old classics, innovations to new additions, and refreshing and innovating in competitive segments is what Chevrolet has in store for buyers with 2016 Chevy models.
If you're wondering what all of the hype is about, you will have to wait until each vehicle is available before you can give them a test drive. For now, however, we have plenty of interesting details to give you a taste of what will make 2016 a year to remember:
2016 Chevrolet Camaro
The new Camaro may not look radically different on the outside, but it sure is impressing current-generation Camaro owners with its performance and interior upgrades. The new Alpha platform that the 2016 Camaro is based on allowed the meaty muscle car to go on a diet and lose 200 pounds when compared to its previous generation.
Another big announcement was the introduction of a turbo-charged four-cylinder engine option. This comes as no surprise after Ford released the EcoBoost Mustang in late 2014 for the 2015 model year. The big difference between those two vehicles, however, is that Ford's EcoBoost is the mid-tier Mustang, stuck in between the V6 and V8, while the Camaro's turbo-charged four cylinder is actually the base model.
This means that, not only for the first time in history is the Camaro offering a four cylinder engine, but it's the first time that the V6 engine is not featured in the vehicle's base model.
2016 Chevrolet Equinox
The crossover SUV market gets more popular as the years go by, and innovating is no longer an option for car makers as the competition heats up. To ensure it maintains a hold with its customer base, and reaches new customers, Chevrolet is upgrading the Equinox for the 2016 model year.
And for the new model, safety is on the menu, as more families make the switch from larger SUVs to mid-size crossovers like the Equinox. New additions to the Equinox include blind-spot monitoring, which will alert you of any thing in your blind spots while you're attempting to change lanes on a busy street or back out of your driveway.
On top of this, a safety cage provides additional preventative safety in order to reduce the risk of rollover crashes, something many SUV drivers are fearful of when considering the purchase against a sedan, such as the Impala or Malibu.
2016 Chevrolet Malibu
Hybrids are taking over the industry one car at a time, and the upcoming 2016 Malibu is proving that with a new Hybrid model that's expected to get around 47 mpg city/highway combined, one of the best ratings of any mid-size sedan on the market. It also will include technology used in the the Volt, able to use its small electric motor to assist the 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine to produce more power more efficiently.
And while that seems like the best news that could possibly come out of the 2016 Malibu's announcement, there is more:
The Malibu is also receiving an exterior design overall, which at first glance may have you mistaking this economy mid-size sedan for an entry-level luxury car. For the 2016 model year, it's clear Chevy is taking it up a notch!
2016 Chevrolet Volt
Following one of the most innovative plug-in hybrids ever created seemed like it would be tough for the 2016 Chevy Volt. But with an all-new design, more electric-only range, and new technology on the inside, the 2016 Volt is set to take the new automotive industry by storm in the upcoming model year.
The new Volt will be capable of traveling 50 miles on pure electricity with a miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) of 102, a great improvement over the first generation's electric-only range. With battery assistance, the Volt will get 43 MPG and have a total range of around 430 miles.
While many are waiting for Chevy's first mainstream full-electric car to be released in 2017, the Volt is here now and offers drivers a no-compromise way of changing their lifestyle. Chevrolet, on numerous occasions, has mentioned that many Volt owners go as much as 1000 miles between gas fill ups due to the fact that the vehicle can be run in fully-electric mode for short trips and recharged overnight.
The flexibility of having electric efficiency and gas power is truly a great mix for any modern vehicle in 2016.
