2017 Chevy Volt Makes List of Top Engines

The 2017 Chevy Volt extended range electric vehicle (EREV) represents an impressive feat of engineering, and once again, the advanced automobile has been recognized for its technological prowess. For the second consecutive year—and the third time overall—the Chevy Volt has been presented with a 2017 Wards 10 Best Engines Award.

WardsAuto Senior Content Director Drew Winter was practically gushing about the vehicle, saying of the award: “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. 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.”

That’s certainly high praise, and it’s high praise we agree with. Drivers often come in to Keyes Cars with preconceived notions about what it means to drive a hybrid vehicle. Sure, they’re all in for a more efficient car, but they’ve come to terms with the fact that they’re going to have to sacrifice performance. But when they drive the new Chevy Volt, and they realize the truth: they can have their cake and eat it too.

The Chevy Volt makes use of not one, but two electric motors that work in unison. This setup optimizes efficiency and conserves electric charge. It also delivers responsive power and torque that you’ve got to experience to believe. And on top of all that, the Chevy Volt boasts a 1.5L direct injected high-efficiency engine. The engine serves as your backup, ensuring that the end of battery power is not the end of your ride, not by a longshot.

Don’t believe us? Come in to our dealership near Beverly Hills, CA to test drive the all-new Chevy Volt. And be sure to check out our full selection of new Chevy vehicles while you’re here. We look forward to seeing you.

And if you need a vehicle that can fit you and yours—and all their stuff—inside, without taking up two lanes, then come in to our Van Nuys, CA dealership to test drive the new 2017 Hyundai Tucson today.

Step inside the new Hyundai Tucson to experience the next level of comfort. Drivers are taken care of with a standard driver seat that can be configured 6 ways, as well as with the available power 8-way seat. And while the bells and whistles are usually only reserved for the front of the car, Hyundai hasn’t forgotten about the rear passengers in this compact crossover. In fact, they’ve downright spoiled them! Multi-adjustable reclining rear seats, available heated rear seats, and available dual climate control give rear passengers the features they need to travel comfortably. There’s also plenty of space for rear passengers to enjoy, with generous rear leg room.

In any vehicle, cargo capacity is key, and the 2017 Hyundai Tucson does not disappoint. With the 60/40-split rear seatbacks folded down, you’ve got 61.9 cubic feet of space at your disposal, along with an available cargo cover to hide those items you’d rather not leave out in the open. More than just the space, it’s the attention to detail that sets this Hyundai hauler apart. Map pockets, bottle holders, and a center storage compartment pepper the interior with convenience. But our favorite feature by far is the retractable hook on the rear seatback to keep shopping bags in place.

We can’t wait to show you all the great features that the 2017 Hyundai Tucson has in store for you. And don’t even get us started on the full lineup of great new 2017 Hyundai models! Scratch that—do come in and get us started! We can’t keep the excitement to ourselves any longer.

The 2017 Toyota Camry Offers an Incredible Driving Experience

The 2017 Toyota Camry is a car you can count on. And you can count on Keyes Cars to have plenty in stock for you to test drive. The Toyota Camry has long been one of the most popular cars on the road, offering style, comfort, convenience, and legendary Toyota dependability. While you may have it in your head as an all business sedan, re-calibrated springs, shocks, and sway bars, along with optimized Electric Power Steering (EPS) and taut suspension mean this car is more than a little fun to drive. Precision performance, a smooth ride, and truly breathtaking handling will blow your expectations out of the water.

On the open road, plenty of forces conspire to slow your automobile down. Turbulent air increases drag, reducing efficiency and adding wind noise. To combat this driving detriment, the engineers at Toyota equipped the new Toyota Camry with specially placed vortex generators to smooth things out, thereby boosting efficiency and giving you some extra peace and quiet during your drive.

The Toyota Camry comes equipped with front sport seats that make use of side bolsters to cradle drivers and create a comfortable cockpit. This is just one of the interior elements that make the new Toyota Camry a pleasure to ride in. Sculpted cutaways in the seats and interior panels create more leg room for passengers in the front and rear. The headliner was also designed to allow for more headroom inside the already spacious cabin. Drivers are sure to enjoy the standard 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support, especially on long drives. A wireless charging system doesn’t come standard, but it’s an add-on we highly recommend. We promise, you’ll love your new Toyota Camry much more without unnecessary cords snaking all over the place.

Come in to our dealership near Glendale, CA today to test drive the new 2017 Toyota Camry. And if you’re looking to get rid of your current ride, why not use it to help get the new car of your dreams? Be sure to value your trade-in vehicle when you stop in.
