Previewing the Chevrolet 2017 Model Lineup

It’s difficult to believe that 2016 is already two-thirds over. It seems like just yesterday that David Letterman was hosting “The Late Show” and Charlie Sheen was running amuck through his mid-life crisis, but those days are long gone, and we are quickly approaching 2017 (just when we were starting to finally write our dates correctly).

Luckily for you and the rest of Post Falls Idaho, 2017 has some real treats in store courtesy of your friends at Knudtsen Chevrolet, your preferred dealer of the new Chevrolet Cruz near Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Check out a few of the most exciting highlights from the 2017 model lineup that will be hitting Knudtsen Chevrolet before you know it!

2017 Chevy Bolt EV

1. 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV

First on the docket is a brand new model that looks to firmly plant itself as one of Chevy’s flagship vehicles moving forward. The 2017 Chevy Bolt EV is set to hit the market as one of the most advanced electric vehicles to date. According to CheatSheet.com, in 2015 the longest all-electric range for any vehicle other than the $85,000 Tesla Model S 85D was the Kia Soul with an impressive 93 miles.

Chevy is kicking things up a notch as the Bolt is set to earn over 200 miles of range on a full electric charge, while also keeping things affordable. According to CarAndDriver.com, the 2017 Bolt EV will sell for “roughly $38,000 before tax credits”, making it one of the most practical and attainable electric vehicles yet to be released.

With such an affordable price combined with the enormous savings you are sure to see at the gas station, it would be irresponsible not to check out the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV when it hits stores. Continue reading
