Miami Lakes Auto 2017 Wrap Up

2017 Wrap Up of Brands and Models at Miami Lakes Automall

Miami Lakes Auto 2017 Wrap Up

So much has happened this year, it’s time to wrap up 2017 before the New Year. Many of the brands at Miami Lakes Automall killed it in sales, won many awards, and debuted new vehicle trims and all new models. We can’t cover everything, so here’s a couple of the highlights for each brand.

Chevrolet

Among its many awards this year, most notable are mentions of the Chevrolet Sonic, Tahoe, Silverado HD, and Camaro for dependability by J.D. Power for the last two years-in-a-row. Nearly every vehicle in the Chevy lineup received an award, such as the Chevy Volt, Spark, Sonic, Malibu, Impala, Camaro, Trax, Equinox, Traverse, Tahoe, Suburban, Colorado, and Silverado. Besides being an award-winning brand, Chevrolet also came out with special edition trucks for the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado and Chevrolet Silverado to celebrate its Centennial Anniversary. In addition, Chevrolet released the Bolt EV, a strong competitor for Tesla, also leading Chevy’s self-driving fleet and making headway as possibly the first brand to make it to the finish line for autonomous car technology.

Chrysler

It’s almost impossible to ignore the Chrysler Pacifica and Pacifica Hybrid. Rated as the Best Family Car by several organizations, the Pacifica also landed on the WardsAuto Best User Experience list and the Pacifica Hybrid was named in the WardsAuto 10 Best Engines list. The Chrysler Pacifica also was named highest in initial quality in the minivan segment of the J.D. Power Initial Quality Study. With only two models left, three including the hybrid, we’re all wondering what Chrysler will do next. They also have a partnership with Google at the moment for the Google Waymo project, having donated over 500 Pacifica Hybrids to the Waymo testing fleet.

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV made it to the U.S.! This is not a drill and not a hoax. Mitsubishi Motors America added the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV to their lineup, and the news about the Outlander PHEV coming to America is true. How exciting, we’ve been waiting for years and we’re finally going to get our hands on the first outstanding, popular, and successful hybrid by Mitsubishi Motors. You can bet we’ll have a full specs page on it, but for now, take a look at some of the highlights to expect on the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.

Powertrain

Being a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV), the Outlander PHEV is powered by a hybrid system made up of a 2.0-liter DOHC MIVEC engine and two electric motors powered by a rechargeable 12 kWh lithium-ion battery. The internal combustion engine, like most found in Mitsubishi vehicles today, has been optimized with Mitsubishi’s MIVEC system, their version of variable valve timing (VVT) technology. As some may know, VVT is a process that alters the lift events in an engine’s cylinders during the intake of gas and air and the exhaust of fumes. The better this process is optimized, the better an engine can perform.
