WardsAuto 10 Best Engines Award Goes to 2017 Chevrolet Volt

When it comes to quality auto industry news, information, data and analysis you can count on, WardsAuto is a resource that's stood the test of time. They supply myriad advice and stats to automakers, dealerships and the industry's like on some of the most important aspects of the market. So who powered through for the second consecutive year to win this prestigious auto expert's 10 Best Engines award? Gary Lang Chevrolet can take a wild guess. None other than Chevrolet Volt.

Bringing together a litany of impressive features, it was overall experience as well as generational improvements that wowed Wards, from Volt's go-getting, torque-driven handling to the longevity of its up-to-53-mile electric-only range, and, for road warriors, competitive fuel economy when it came to having to use gas.

It's easy to see how Volt deserved such overwhelming praise. Its second generation offers the power of a two-motor drive unit putting out up to 294 lb-ft of torque to really take you places. And Volt combines an 18.4kWh lithium-ion battery pack and Ecotec 1.5L gas range extender to help you make the most of long trips, offering an EPA-estimated 106 miles-per-gallon gas equivalent and up to 420 miles of total driving range. And with the implications of the Chevrolet claim that data demonstrates all-electric power use more than 80 percent of the time, you can see how Volt not only theoretically but also practically goes the extra mile.

But there's more to going the distance than just the groundbreaking Volt. Our McHenry, IL showroom is veritably packed with a gamut of new and pre-owned Chevrolet vehicles to conquer the terrain, from the 2017 Chevrolet Spark LS, bespeaking an enviable 31 mpg city/41 mpg highway fuel economy, to the 2015 and 2016 Chevrolet Trax LT, each with hard-charging 26 mpg city/34 mpg highway fuel economy. Come see us today for a test drive!
