New Chevrolet Cars
Each car manufacturer tries to impress its admirers by releasing new and more sophisticated cars. Chevrolet is one of these companies and in 2010 it released its future plans that will bring something new on the car market. The general idea is that the company is trying to match the design of the new Chevrolet cars with the impressive Equinox crossover and the Camaro muscle car. Chevrolet is preparing to raise the federal fuel economy requirements by placing the V6 engine lower, adding more engines with four cylinders and redesigning the small cars.
The list of cars that will suffer some changes from 2011 to 2013 is pretty large, but trust me when I say that the happiest will be the buyers because they will have cars that will bring them more comfort and a lower fuel consumption.
2011 is the year when the new Chevrolet cars are expected to impress the buyers and to become leaders on the car market. One of these cars is the Chevrolet Cruze that will appear in the US showrooms in September as a replacement for the Cobalt. The European and Asian buyers already enjoy driving this four doors compact car. Another car that will suffer some changes in 2011 is the Aveo that will be redesigned becoming wider and longer than the current Aveo. This mini-car will be available as a five-door hatchback and as a four-door sedan. The company expects the new Aveo to be manufactured in 70,000 units each year.
The GM hopes that the new Hybrid car, the Volt will reach impressive sales in 2011 (10,000 units) with numbers increasing in 2012. The new Chevrolet cars list for 2011 ends with the Silverado 2500 and 3500 which will be available with a new engine. But 2014 and 2015 will be the years when this heavy-duty pickup will suffer a complete redesign and will become available in the compressed-natural-gas version.
2012 is the year when the Chevrolet Colorado “retires” and the GM might reintroduce a compact pickup. But the sixth generation of the Colorado will be sold outside the US having a smaller design similar to the Chevrolet Montana design (Brazil version). The Chevrolet Camaro will be also released in 2012 as a convertible model. But a major change of the Camaro is planned for the 2015 model when a smaller type of platform (the Alpha platform) will be used.
Part of the list is the Malibu as well, which will be equipped with a redesigned engine. The car will be revealed in 2012 as a 2013 model and will feature a new direct injection engine with four cylinders, a larger trunk, a shorter wheelbase and a shorter Epsilon platform. Last but not least on the 2012 list is the desire of GM to release a natural-gas-powered version of the Silverado 1500 while for the 2014 model this Silverado will be equipped with a new engine and will have a new design.
The Chevrolet will continue its plans for the new Chevrolet cars in 2013 when the Traverse will get a new look and a new 3.0 liters V6 engine. The redesigned Corvette will be available on the market as well celebrating the sports car’s 60th Anniversary. It’s very likely that the new Corvette will be released as a 2014 model equipped with a turbocharger V6 combined with a V8 engine. The Chevrolet Impala will be also redesigned as a 2014 model and the designers will use a longer Epsilon platform, a shorter front and rear overhangs to lower the weight.
Great news if you are a Chevrolet fan!
