New 2018 Volt Safety Features Win IIHS Top Safety Pick Award

2018 Volt safetyThe 2018 Chevrolet Volt is a noteworthy sedan, not just because it has an innovative powertrain, but also because it has extensive safety systems. The 2018 Volt safety features are so impressive that the vehicle recently won a Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The IIHS is a non-profit third-party organization that examines the safety features on most vehicles in the industry.

According to The News Wheel, the 2018 Chevrolet Volt has a 420-mile range thanks to a hybrid-electric engine that uses gasoline and electric power. It also has a 53-mile range on pure electricity, which makes the Volt a great vehicle for those looking to go green. Additionally, the Volt won the 2018 IIHS Top Safety Pick award when equipped with available Drive Confidence II Package.

Teen Driver is one of the great safety features offered on the new Volt. This helps new drivers learn positive habits behind the wheel by muting audio, giving audible and visible warnings when exceeding predetermined speeds, limiting music volume, and more.

Other features include Lane Departure Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Forward Safety Awareness, and more. In fact, the Volt has 10 airbags around the cabin to keep you better protected in the event of a crash.

New Chevrolet Traverse to Debut in Detroit

2016 Chevrolet Traverse

January means the North American International Auto Show in Detroit is almost here. As one of the largest auto shows in the world, the NAIAS in Detroit is typically reserved for brands looking to reveal one of their big, upcoming nameplates to the public to generate hype. One of these nameplates is the new Chevrolet Traverse for the 2018 model year. Chevy has been dropping hints about the vehicle, even teasing us with images, but fans will get their first full look at the overhauled Traverse at the auto show.

 The Traverse has long been a popular model in Chevrolet’s lineup, which is why the best-seller has changed very little in the past ten years. However, it’s time for a new generation. Judging from teaser images, the 2018 Traverse model will be taking cues from other SUVs in the same lineup—namely, the Chevrolet Equinox and newly-redesigned GMC Acadia.

 Besides that, most of what we know about the new Chevrolet Traverse is this: it will have a possible eight-passenger seating configuration, best-in-class cargo accommodation, and a rumored 3.6-liter V6 engine. None of the details will be set in stone until the curtains are drawn at the upcoming Detroit Auto Show.
