Though the names have remained the same, most everything else related to Chevrolet’s lineup of cars has changed for 2016. The Camaro, for example, has been redesigned and now boasts a standard 4-cylinder engine and a 455-horsepower V-8 for the SS, while the Corvette returns with a host of fresh design packages and a limited-edition Z06 variant. Joining those performance cars are the Cruze, Malibu, Spark, and Volt—each reworked for 2016—as well as the Impala and Sonic, two models that have been updated with added features and paint colors.
Chevy’s roster of trucks and SUVs remains the same for 2016, and all models carry over with only minor changes. These include new exterior colors, enhanced safety features, and new wheel options. Chevy vans, too, carry over into 2016, adding OnStar connectivity and the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system.
The full-size Chevy truck lineup—the Silverado 1500, 2500HD, and 3500HD—has dropped a few colors and added new ones for the 2016 model year, and several sophisticated features have been added, including an enhanced Driver Alert package of options, a new fascia and LED lights, remote locking tailgate, upgraded MyLink system, and imposing-looking all-black editions. The big news for the midsize Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck is an available Duramax 2.8-liter turbodiesel 4-cylinder engine that promises power and efficiency.
