Price Range (MSRP): $13,000 (Spark) to $55,450 (Corvette)
Chevrolet offers a wide range of vehicles from compact hatchbacks to family sedans.
After its major redesign in 2016, the Spark returns unchanged. Its compact size and zippy nature offers a city-friendly driving experience and ample mileage. Fuel economy for the Spark with an automatic transmission is an EPA-estimated 30/38 mpg city/highway.
For little more storage and passenger room, one should consider the Sonic hatchback. This year, it received an exterior redesign, an updated, standard infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, and more available safety features.
A compact hatchback version of the Cruze has been added to the lineup. The Cruze hatchback offers a maximum 47.2 cubic feet of cargo capacity. An RS trim with sporty body styling is also available for the hatchback.
A family of 4 or 5 should consider the mid-size Malibu sedan, which was redesigned last year. It has two turbocharged 4-cylinder options: a 163-hp 1.5-liter and a 250-hp, 2.0-liter. A Malibu Hybrid version is also available.
The full-size Impala sedan has renamed the top-tier LTZ trim to the Premier. It has a standard 196-hp, 2.5-liter 4-cylinder mated to a 6-speed automatic. For better acceleration, a powerful 305-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 is available.
Chevrolet has two “green” vehicles to help reduce one’s carbon footprint. First, the all-new Chevrolet Bolt is a pure electric hatchback that has a 200-mile electric driving range.
The Volt compact sedan is a fuel-efficient, plug-in hybrid that seats up 5 passengers. It offers 53-miles of pure electric driving range and 420 miles of total range. Standard automatic braking and adaptive cruise control have been added for this year.
Have a need for speed? The Camaro and Corvette are considerable, high-performance options.
The Camaro SS has a newly available 1LE handling package, which includes firm FE4 suspension and Magnetic Ride Control for comfort. The Camaro’s history is commemorated with an available 50th Anniversary Edition package, which includes Nightfall Gray Metallic exterior paint, exterior and interior badging, and black/gray leather-trimmed seating. A high performance Camaro ZL1 is also due later.
Now in its seventh generation, the Corvette is built on a lightweight aluminum frame with carbon fiber body panels. A newly available, naturally-aspirated Grand Sport trim is positioned between the Stingray and Z06. It is tuned to produce 460-hp using the same 6.2-liter V-8 from the Stingray. Both the Grand Sport and Z06 have an available Z07 package which includes performance-tuned suspension, magnetic selective ride control, Carbon ceramic Brembo brakes, carbon-fiber package, and summer performance tires.
Chevrolet has a full lineup of sport utility vehicles for more convenience.
Starting with the smallest of the crossovers, the Trax received a new facelift and a revise interior. Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, forward collision warning, and lane departure warning are now available. A new Premier trim has been added for the Trax.
Two new Special Editions are available for the Equinox. The Midnight Edition comes with blacked-out 18-inch wheels, a black front grille, black leather seats, and black badging. The Sport Edition has the same unique features, but comes in white instead of black.
The mid-size Traverse also gains a new Graphite Edition. It has the same features as the 2LT trim but also adds integrated side steps, a dual pipe exhaust system, dark 20-inch wheels, and black badging.
Both the full-size Tahoe and enormous Suburban remain largely unchanged. Chevrolet may add the top-level Premier trim to the models. Both seat up to 9 passengers.
The Silverado family of pickup trucks includes the regular-duty Silverado 1500, and the heavy-duty Silverado 2500HD and Silverado 3500HD.
The Silverado 1500 has a new High Desert Package that includes a lockable storage system with two binds and a tonneau cover.
The diesel model of the Silverado 2500HD and Silverado 3500HD gain a new functional hood scoop and air-intake system.
Chevrolet also offers a line of work vans for the commercially inclined, the Express 1500, Express 2500, and Express 3500.
The SS Sedan has been discontinued for 2017.
