Under the aerodynamic hood, a 3-cylinder engine is expected to replace the current 1.4-liter, 4-cylinder engine; this will give it a 31 horsepower increase, bumping it up to 115hp and 122 lb-ft of torque. The 3-cylinder will also extend the range of the electric car by 20 percent - this is made possible by making the car lighter. This 3-cylinder will be all-aluminum and turbocharged, and will also be the engine that powers the Opel Adam in 2014.
An upgraded engine won't be the only new thing that happens to the Volt, as it is expected to be completely redesigned. This redesign will be the first time the vehicle has undergone major changes since it's first release. GM has also announced that they hope to cut $10,000 from the Volt's current $39,145 price. They are already halfway there with this goal, as $5,000 has been dropped from the 2014 Chevy Volt.
While you'll have to wait for the 3-cylinder engine to be ready for the 2016 Chevy Volt, we do have the 2014 model ready for your inspection. This vehicle is both attractive and fuel efficient, so take the time to stop by our Caro Area Chevrolet Dealer and check it out!
