Meet the most fuel efficient pickup truck in America, the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado Diesel! The Colorado will offer an EPA Estimated 31 MPG (Highway). The EPA awarded the Colorado the Certificate of Conformity to the Colorado after extensive testing and evaluation of the emission control system.

The Colorado has a 21 gallon fuel tank, meaning that 2WD models offer an estimated highway range of 651 miles! In addition to taking the title of most fuel efficient pickup in America, the Colorado has a large complement of additional accolades, including segment leading trailering capabilities.

The Colorado, when properly equipped is capable of trailering up to 7,700 pounds on 2WD models and 7,600 pounds on 4WD models.

The new engine of the 2016 Colorado Diesel is a 2.8L Duramax Turbo-Diesel engine, which generates 181 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. The engine is paired with a Hydra-Matric 6L50 six-speed transmission that uses a unique Centrifugal Pendulum Vibration Absorber to reduce powertrain noise and vibration. The Colorado Diesel’s variable-geometry turbocharger helps optimize power and efficiency across the RPM band to contribute to smoothness.

As an added bonus, Chevrolet added two new features for control and confidence to the Colorado Diesel. Smart Diesel Exhaust Braking enhances your control of the truck and reduces the brake wear by reducing the need to brake on downgrades. Chevy also added an integrated trailer brake controller that works with the antilock brake system and provides immediate and measured brake force and eliminates the need for you to purchase an aftermarket trailer brake controller.

The 2016 Colorado Diesel will be on sale this fall at our dealership and is available in LT and Z71 trims. Contact us at info@sweeneycars.com for more details.

The 2016 Malibu doesn’t just look different!

The 2016 Malibu doesn’t just look different…This is a different car than any generation of Malibu in the past! According to the Malibu’s Chief Engineer, Jesse Ortega, “Midsize customers tell us they want great fuel economy, connected technologies and a gorgeous exterior” and that’s exactly what this vehicle delivered.

Let’s start with some of the  biggest differences in the ninth generation Malibu:

The 2016 Malibu is longer and lighter
Chevrolet is manufacturing the the vehicle to be a larger vehicle while decreasing it’s weight. The 2016 Malibu will be closer to four inches longer than the 2015 and will still be nearly 300 lbs lighter. These two factors are a small portion of what will contribute to the EPA estimated 37 MPG highway.

Major Changes
When the 2016 Malibu arrives at our Boardman, OH showroom it will feature:
-Available segment-exclusive OnStar LTE wifi as well as wireless phone charging.
-Agile, sophisticated and sleek exterior design.
-More standard safety technologies, including 10 standard air bags and available features such as forward collision alert, rear cross traffic alert and automatic parking assist.
-A teen driver feature, which will allow parents to view their children’s driving statistics like maximum speed, warning alerts and more.

Because Chevrolet is making the 2016 Malibu larger, it will feature legroom and a more open cabin. The next generation Malibu was built with a greater emphasis on comfort, convenience and connectivity that allows the Malibu to keep pace with customers’ lives. Here are the major highlights of the new interior:

-Chevrolet MyLink with a seven inch color touch screen will come standard on LS, LT and Hybrid models. An eight inch touch will be available on LT, Hybrid and Premier trims.
-3D navigational maps will be available on select trim levels.
-The Teen Driver feature will allow parents to restrict certain vehicle features such as speed, customized warning alerts and more.
-Rear seat USB and 110-volt power outlets will be options.
-The center stack is completely redesigned!
-Galvano chrome accents make the instrument panel and center console more aesthetically appealing.
-Added dedicated storage slot for mobile phones, which can be used to wireless charge the phone.
-Ventilated seats will be standard on Premier Trim levels.

Trim Levels
Unlike previous editions of the Malibu, the 2016 Malibu will be offered in L, LS, LT and premier trims. The premier trim is a Chevrolet first, making its debut on the Malibu. This is an “uplevel” designation meaning it will have even more luxury than ever!

Well, that about sums it up…Just kidding! We haven’t even got to one of the most exciting changes. The 2016 Malibu will be available in a Hybrid!

Thanks, Volt!
The 2016 Malibu borrowed technology from the 2016 Volt’s propulsion system. This propulsion system will offer a combined fuel economy that exceeds 45 miles per gallon. This is higher than the Ford Fusion, Toyota Camry and Hyundai Sonata hybrids.

The hybrid engine will also feature Chevy’s first ever application of Exhaust Gas Heat Recovery or EGHR. This technology uses exhaust heat to warm the engine and cabin to ensure consistent fuel economy performance in cold weather.

The hybrid system will be driven by a 80-cell lithium ion battery pack which will power the vehicle up to speeds of 55 mpg, where the engine will take over. The battery will be charged using the Volt’s blended regenerative braking system, which will recover kinetic energy during braking.

To cap it all off, check out these photos!

Meet Sam. He really loves his Chevrolet Volt.

Meet Sam – Sam is the owner of a 2014 Chevrolet Volt.

California resident Sam Miller-Christiansen, highlights his favo


According to Sam it’s the best car that he has ever owned and he’s willing to tell anyone that will listen. This included the team that helped design the 2016 Chevrolet Volt. Sam was part of a group of Volt owners that were instrumental in developing the next generation EV.

Shortly after Chevrolet launched the first-generation Volt, Chevy met once a month through internet panels and social media chats with a customer advisory board from across the country to understand how consumers were using their Volts. These talks included what features the owners liked and what features needed improvement.

This feedback lead Chevrolet to the direction they decided to take the 2016 Volt. The first improvement that they decided to tackle was an improved EV range. The next generation Chevrolet Volt will feature a GM-estimated 50 miles of range and a total driving range of 400 miles between fill ups. With regular charging owners will be able to travel more than 1,000 miles between fill ups, giving an estimated 41 MPG and 102 MPGe.

The panel also asked for a more intuitive vehicle interface and Chevrolet delivered. The next generation will feature fewer icons, separate climate control knobs and a button clean up that will provide clear and convenient operation.

Here is a complete list of the features that were influenced by the Chevrolet Volt customer panel:

  • Quieter engine at lower speeds
  • LED headlamps
  • Reduced air dam scraping when entering or exiting driveways
  • Heated steering wheel
  • Regen on Demand – A feature which gives drivers more control over regenerative braking, which reclaims energy while the Volt is slowing down
  • Customization of vehicle information depending on driver’s preference
  • Location-based charging selection
  • More discrete charging notifications
  • Charge door open reminder
  • Illuminated charge port
  • Available spare tire

Let’s not forget that these are all improvements that are being made to the vehicle that already has some of the highest customer loyalty and quality scores in the auto industry! In the four years that the Chevrolet Volt has been on the market it has earned more accolades and best buy awards than any other EV. These awards include the 2015 Kelly Blue Book Best Buy Award and the IIHS’ Top Safety Award. Check out our inventory of Volts here: http://www.sweeneychevrolet.com/search/new-volt/tp-md1037/
