And, if you want something great for commuting, has an engine that is great enough to win awards and gets excellent gas mileage, visit our showroom to test drive the 2016 Chevrolet Volt.

2016 Chevrolet Camaro

The Camaro features a brand new 3.6-liter V-6 engine; and this engine made WardsAuto’s “Ward’s 10 Best Engines” list. The company reviewed engines and compared them with data for engines that are similar to the winners. WardsAuto looked at 31 engines across 11 different auto manufacturers for new technology, fuel efficiency, power and refinement.

The V-6 features advanced technology including cylinder deactivation, which increases fuel efficiency. This engine makes 335 horsepower and 285 pound-feet of torque; and these are the highest power ratings for a naturally aspirated V-6 engine in this segment. The active fuel management system cuts out two cylinders when you don’t need them to increase fuel economy. Furthermore, the Camaro features noise-reducing features including a new cam drive system.

2016 Chevrolet Volt

The new Volt features a Voltec propulsion system with zero range anxiety. The system features a range-extending engine, the drive unit, a battery and power electronics. You’ll be able to drive about 53 miles on electric power only and have a total driving range of over 420 miles, giving you over 1,000 miles between the times you have to visit the gas station.

This year’s drive unit is about 12 percent more efficient and it dropped 100 pounds when compared to the first generation. Because the Volt uses both motors, it has a 19 percent improvement in acceleration when under electric power. It takes 2.6 seconds to go from zero to 30 mph; and it shows a 7 percent improvement in acceleration from zero to 60 mph, which takes 8.4 seconds.

The gas engine is a 1.5-liter engine with direct injection and it runs on regular unleaded fuel. The battery is an 18.4 kWh battery with revised cell chemistry; and it features 192 cells instead of the 288 cells in the previous year’s model. Though the cells were decreased, saving 21 pounds, storage capacity increased.
