Whether you’re in the market for a heavy-duty truck, an electric sub-compact or anything in between, Chevrolet’s 2017 line of cars, trucks and crossovers have you covered.
So what kind of vehicle owner are you?
If you’re all about minimizing your footprint and living eco-friendly, the Chevy Bolt EV is your dream come true. This new fully electric subcompact hatchback promises 200 miles on a charge, which is about twice the range of most current EVs. Top speed is 91 mph, and the battery can be fully charged after a typical 50-mile commute in less than two hours. Best of all, the new Bolt doesn’t produce a lick of toxic emissions.
For believers who aren’t all in, the Chevy Volt “extended-range electric vehicles” continues to offer an internal combustion engine that kicks in after the battery has taken you across town.
The Big Hauler
Big jobs require the Chevy Silverado, the King Kong of trucks. Heavy-duty versions of Chevy’s popular full-size pickup will enter the model year with a new air intake system for its Duramax diesel engine that helps it run cooler under heavy loads. That means even more towing for even longer.
The Cool Cat
Most people aren’t hip enough for a sports car, but the Cool Cat can’t drive anything else. The 2017 Corvette and Camaro are the cars for them. A new higher-performance ZL1 version of the Camaro sports coupe debuts for 2017 with the Corvette Z06’s 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine under the hood. It puts an estimated 640 horsepower to the pavement via either a six-speed manual transmission or a new 10-speed automatic.
Meanwhile, the track-ready Corvette Grand Sport coupe and convertible versions are new for 2017, and they’re ready to run with specific aerodynamic styling tweaks, a specially tuned lighter-weight chassis and other performance-minded upgrades.
The Chevy Cruze compact sedan, redesigned for 2016, adds a new four-door hatchback model for 2017, which offers 47 cubic feet of cargo carrying capacity.
2017 also brings a new sporty subcompact Sonic featuring updated styling and newly available features that include keyless entry/start, heated front seats and steering wheel and a new infotainment system with added connectivity features. Check out the big technologies you don’t expect in a fun-to-drive car, such as a new MyLink system with segment-exclusive Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and a fresh exterior with new LED signature lighting.
The Hot Mom
Chevy’s crossover SUVs Trax and Equinox are freshened up this year with exterior and interior styling, a full suite of the latest accident-avoidance safety features and both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto mobile phone connectivity systems.
Whatever your personality, there’s a Chevy for you – and in 2017, it’s slicker and more loaded with features than ever before.
