The Volt successfully beat out the difficult competition after a rigorous and intense process by the selection committee from Motor Trend. Your Chantilly Chevrolet dealer knows Chevy never set out to win any awards, but only to build an electric vehicle that fits people’s lives in the real world of driving.
At the leading Chantilly Chevrolet dealer, anticipation for the Volt has continued to grow, and with good reason. The Volt will be one of the most innovative vehicles to ever hit the pavement and recognition of that fact is already starting to pile up.
Motor Trend thought it knew what to expect from the Volt, but even its expectations were blown away.
“We expected a science experiment, but this is a moon shot,” Motor Trend editors wrote for the January 2011 issue. “The Volt delivers on the promise of the vehicle concept as originally outlined by GM, combining the smooth, silent, efficient, low-emissions capability of an electric motor with the range and flexibility of an internal combustion engine. It is a fully functional, no-compromise compact automobile that offers consumers real benefits in terms of lower running costs.”
The compliments from Motor Trend are mainly for the Volt’s powertrain. As the world’s first electric vehicle with extended range capability, the Volt can travel 40 miles on a single charge, completely free of gas and emissions.
Its range-extending generator then kicks in, producing electrical power for up to an additional 300 miles of travel. The Volt’s range has no limits because it can be powered by gas until owners can plug it back into a 120- or 240-volt outlet.
A great deal of work went into making the Volt the most aerodynamic sedan in Chevrolet’s history. By lowering the drag coefficient of the Volt, Chevrolet engineers were able to increase its efficiency, adding up to eight miles of electric range and 40 miles of extended range.
Tom Stephens, GM Vice Chairman for Global Product Operations, accepted the Motor Trend Car of the Year award from a likely-enough location to honor an efficient, aerodynamic vehicle, the General Motors wind tunnel in Warren, Mich.
“Chevrolet is truly honored to receive one of the world’s most coveted automotive awards,” said Stephens. “The Volt team has worked under extraordinary circumstances to produce this breakthrough vehicle.”
And for shoppers of the leading Chantilly Chevrolet dealer, that breakthrough vehicle is nearly here.

Chantilly Chevy truck drivers are excited for the updates on the Chevrolet Silverado for the 2011 model year.
Chantilly Chevy dealer Pohanka Chevrolet knows that drivers need a truck that is more than just an average pickup truck. That’s why their inventory includes the 2011 Chevy Silverado.
Chantilly Chevrolet drivers choose the 2011 Chevy Silverado because they know that the truck will, of course, supply them with a heavy-duty vehicle and get them to work and back. They also know that the 2011 Chevrolet Silverado provides drivers with so much more, including the most up-to-date entertainment and technology.
The 2011 Chevrolet Silverado, available now at Chantilly Chevy dealer Pohanka Chevrolet, is available in a variety of models, trims and cab lengths that allow drivers to choose what best fits their needs and uses.
The 2011 Chevy Silverado is available as the Silverado 1500, 2500 HD and 3500 HD. All models provide Chantilly Chevy Silverado truck shoppers with trucks that have greater capability, improved ride and handling and a greater feeling of driver control.
The 2011 Silverado 1500- the most powerful half-ton crew cab available- has a range of engines that top out with a 6.2-liter V8 that provides 403 horsepower, max towing capacity of 10,700 lbs. and max payload of 1,980 lbs.
The 2011 Silverado 2500 and 3500 HD received additional strength and power for the 2011 model year. Available on both are two engines: a 6.0-liter, gasoline-powered Vortec V8 with 360 horsepower and 380 lb.-ft. of torque and a Duramax 6.6-liter Turbo-Diesel V8 with 397 horsepower and 765 lb.-ft. of torque.
The new Duramax 6.6L diesel is paired with a six-speed transmission and offers an exhaust brake system, new front and rear suspensions, an improved brake system, hill start assist, trailer sway control system and more.
The diesel engine on the 2500 HD will impress with its 17,800 lbs. of towing capacity and the ability to take on 4,192 lbs. of payload. For those who demand the most of their trucks, the Silverado 3500 HD has a 21,700-lb. towing capacity and 6,635 lbs. of payload.
The diesel engines come with an over 11 percent improvement in highway fuel economy and are B20 Biodiesel compatible. B20 Biodiesel, which is a mixture of biodiesel and regular diesel, reduces the Silverado’s emissions by 60 percent while using fewer natural resources.
Outside, the 2011 Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD models are distinguished by a power dome-style hood with a new, louvered design, as well as a new grille and full-width chrome steel front bumper. A new lineup of 17-, 18- and 20-inch wheel/tire combinations is featured. Designers and engineers left almost no bolt unturned during the comprehensive redesign of the trucks.
The interiors are refined, with improved quietness and attention to detail, but designed for working. Numerous storage compartments provide covered access for everything from work gloves to laptops.
Chantilly Chevy truck drivers looking for a truck equipped with loads of technology- and WiFi- can find that in the Silverado HD. These trucks are mobile workspaces, offering mobile WiFi, USB connectivity, Bluetooth connectivity, XM Satellite Radio and a navigation system. Multiple charge points enable multiple electronic devices to operate simultaneously. When equipped with the available navigation system, XM NavTraffic offers real-time updates of traffic conditions.
