Chevy has done it again. For their second year in a row and third time overall, Chevrolet has won a spot in the coveted Ward’s 10 Best Engines List with their 2017 Chevy Volt. Boasting a unique combination of 294 lb-ft torque, a two-motor drive unit and an Ecotec 1.5L gasoline range extender, it’s clear to see why the Volt has ranked top 10. The Global Propulsion Systems Engineers at Chevrolet worked hard to create their most fuel-efficient Volt to date. With its 18.4 kWh 300 V lithium-ion battery pack, this new addition to the Volt collection offers drivers a very impressive EPA-estimated 106 MPGe, 53 miles of battery only range and a total driving range of 420 miles. Recent data shows that owners drive in all-electric power mode more than 80 percent of the time.
WardsAuto Senior Content Director Drew Winter says the 2017 Chevy Volt “has a torquey, fun-to-drive personality. It offers impressive electric-only range of 53 miles and efficient gasoline-powered range whenever you need it.” He also calls the new Volt “flexibility unequaled in the automotive world.” And that it “continues to be one of the most unique and innovative propulsion systems ever mass produced.”
Since the release of the original 2011 Volt, owners have driven the about 1.5 billion miles in the gas efficient EV mode, saving the planet an estimated 58 million gallons of gas. Starting at $33,220, the 2017 eco-friendly compact hybrid also offers unique new built-in Teen Driver Technology to encourage safe driving and ensure parents can better monitor their teen’s driving habits. Available in LT or Premier configurations, the Chevy Volt can also provide Forward Automatic Braking and full-speed adaptive cruise control safety features.
