2017 Volt Named to WardsAuto 10 Best Engines List

The 2017 Chevy Volt was proudly named to the 2017 WardsAuto 10 Best Engines list due its capable Voltec Drive Unit and Range Extender. This is the second year in a row the Volt has nabbed a spot on the list, proving it’s one of the best electric hybrid cars on the market today.

“The Chevy Volt propulsion system wins a spot on the Wards 10 Best Engines list for the second year in a row for three reasons,” said WardsAuto Senior Content Director Drew Winter. “It 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 for anxiety free driving. That is flexibility unequaled in the automotive world. And despite imitations, it continues to be one of the most unique and innovative propulsion systems ever mass produced.”

There are so many reasons to love the 2017 Chevy Volt in Arlington. It offers an EPA-estimated 106 MPGe, a 420-mile total driving range and a 53-mile electric range. This can be attributed to the Volt’s two motor drive unit—which also delivers 294 lb.-ft. of torque—Ecotec 1.5L gas range extender and 18.4kWh lithium-ion battery pack.
