But, if waiting is just too hard, the current models have been reviewed to award-winning acclaim. Whether you decide to bide your time or make a purchase today, it’s hard to top a Chevy when you want to “Find New Roads.”
Read on for a quick preview of the six upcoming Chevrolet models ready to launch into the 2016 model year…
Upcoming Chevy Vehicles
The bevy of upcoming Chevy vehicles come in a range of sizes from compact cars to mid-size sedans to pickup trucks. Whether you prioritize performance over fuel economy or vice-versa, the new Chevys are sure to deliver. Here’s a quick preview of what’s to come at Dan Cummins’ Chevrolet dealership. Mind you, we can only share what the bow-tied brand has revealed thus far. Keep checking back with us though for more updates as they are released. We’ll keep you in the loop…
The 2016 Chevy Malibu and Malibu Hybrid
We’re going to start this preview with a focus on fuel efficiency because both of these Malibu models have it in spades. According to Chevy, the 2016 Malibu is rated at 37 highway mpg, while the new Malibu Hybrid comes in at a whopping 48 city mpg. If you do a great deal of daily driving, or you commute to and from work, this car is ideal for keeping you on the move and sparing you unnecessary stops at the pump – not to mention the expense.
Safety is another point to feature here, as both 2016 Malibu models are equipped with a wealth of active and passive safety features. Standard features include the vehicle’s high-strength steel safety cage, ten airbags, with a 360-degree sensor able to adjust the bags’ inflation, and OnStar technology. The beauty of OnStar technology is that, in the event of an accident, an OnStar advisor is notified. If, for any reason, you are unable to engage with them, he or she will be able to pinpoint your location and send emergency services immediately.
For added peace of mind, particularly for parents, both Malibu models offer Teen Driver technology, which ingeniously monitors teenage drivers and mitigates potentially unsafe decisions made behind the wheel. Not wearing seatbelts? Well, they won’t be cranking the tunes either. The Teen Driver system immediately mutes all audio after it detects that seatbelts are not in use. Speeding? There’s an alert for that, too. All of this can later be reviewed by the teen’s parents. They’ll hate it, but who cares? Safety first.
Other available safety features include Lane Keep Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Forward Collisions Alert, which specifically features Tailgating and Crash Imminent alerts.
The 2016 Chevy Spark
Small and sweet, not to mention stylish, the 2016 Chevy Spark is fun and fuel efficient. Boasting an impressive 40 highway mpg from its 1.4-liter engine, the Spark is perfectly sized for parking on city streets. Made for the urban jungle, don’t let the Spark’s size fool you. With an available 27.2 cubic feet of cargo room, you’ve got enough room for luggage should you decide to escape the city for a weekend getaway.
And the colors can’t be missed. The eye-catching spectrum includes Toasted Marshmallow, Titanium, Electric Blue, Black Granite, Splash, Silver Ice, Kalamata, Lime, Salsa, and Summit White.
With voice pass-through, a technology that integrates your smartphone with Chevy MyLink, you can safely communicate and stay connected behind the wheel. Speaking of safety, the Spark is supported by ten airbags, and four-wheel anti-lock brakes, along with available features like Rear Park Assist.
The 2016 Chevy Camaro
We’ll take a breather from the fuel economy focus and switch over to performance. The classic Chevy muscle car, the iconic Camaro is almost here. And we just cannot wait. Super lightweight and fully customizable, the new Camaro comes as either a coupe or convertible.
The convertible features a 100% electronic convertible top that drops at the push of an overhead console button or key fob, even when the car is traveling at speeds up to 30 mph.
Three powertrain options are available, starting with the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, rated at 275 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque. Or, if you want to drive the most powerful SS to date, the LT1, equipped with the 6.2-liter V8 engine is able to produce 455 horsepower and 455 lb.-ft. of torque. Finally, the 3.6-liter V6 engine generates 335 horsepower and 284 lb.-ft. of torque, further enhanced by it’s Direct Injection, Variable Valve Timing, and available Active Fuel Management on the eight-speed automatic transmission.
The 2016 Chevy Bolt EV Concept
Technology will be easily accessible on the Bolt’s ten-inch diagonal display, and is expected to feature a Bolt Connect application, which will include an automatic park and retrieval function, allowing the driver to tell the Bolt to park itself. That’s right, this care will potentially park itself and bring itself to your location when you’re ready to go.
It’s so sci-fi feeling. We can’t wait to try it out. Stay tuned for more updates on the production of this latest Chevy concept car.
The 2016 Chevy Cruze
This athletic compact car shares a few similarities with its sedan sibling, the Malibu. Namely, the distinction of also being the first car in its respective class to feature built-in 4G LTE WiFi. Other shared features include the available safety technologies like Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Keep Assist, and Forward Collision Alert.
Outfitted with Chevy’s 1.4-liter turbocharged engine, the new Chevy Cruze is anticipated to provide an estimated 40 highway mpg.
The 2016 Chevy Silverado
A long-standing Chevy favorite, the full-size Silverado 1500 pickup truck really shows off in the new model year, boasting a few “best-in-class” accolades already. Available in eight trim levels: the High Country, LTZ Z71, LTZ, LT Z71, LT, Custom, LS, and Work Truck, the 2016 Silverado 1500 will offer three engine options, each one “best-in-class” for particular performance.
The 4.3-liter EcoTec3 engine generates 285 horsepower and 305 lb.-ft. of torque, making it the best in its class. Able to tow up to 7,600 pounds, the 2016 Silverado 1500, so equipped, is rated at 18 city, 24 highway mpg.
With the 5.3-liter EcoTec3 engine, the new Silverado is able to produce 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque, with maximum towing rated at 11,000 pounds and fuel efficiency at 16 city and 23 highway mpg, the best in its class.
Finally, the 6.2-liter EcoTec3 engine is measured at 420 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque, with maximum towing at 12,000 pounds, another best-in-class milestone. With this powertrain, the truck’s fuel efficiency is estimated at 15 city, 21 highway mpg.
