If there’s one thing that Chevrolet knows, it’s engines. After all, it was Chevy that originally created the Chevy V8 small block. There have been 100,000,000 Chevy small block engines produced since the engine was designed in 1995.
These days, Chevrolet is still cranking out highly capable and highly innovative engines and not without notice. Two Chevy engines recently made their way on the prestigious Ward’s Auto Best Engines list.
For one engine that made the list, the recognition proves that Chevrolet is still on top of their performance/sports car game. The 3.6-liter V6 featured in the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro gives you more bang for your buck, according to what they found over at Ward’s Auto. The director of content at Ward’s Auto says, “The 3.6 delivers the kind of power and lusty exhaust note you associate with a V-8 for the price of a V-6.”
The 2016 Chevy Camaro was named to the Ward’s Auto Best Engines List.
For the other engine that made the list, it proves that Chevrolet is fully embracing the evolving landscape of the automotive market. The Voltec propulsion system featured in the 2016 Chevrolet Volt represents the second-generation of the technology. Ward’s Auto: “General Motors has taken what already is the most innovative and disruptive propulsion system in the auto industry and made it lighter, stronger and a lot more fun to drive.”
Chevrolet has announced its support of Wreaths Across America, helping the organization place more than 70,000 wreaths at military cemeteries across the country.
Honoring as many of America’s military heroes as this requires a lot of wreaths and a lot of moving around, so Chevrolet dealers such as DeLillo Chevrolet and volunteers are donating more than 13,000 wreaths to the organization to help make it happen.

The automaker is also providing several vehicles to Wreaths Across America, including decorated Suburbans and Silverados, that will lead their journey from its headquarters in Maine to the Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C.
“We think it is so important to teach our younger generation that our freedoms are not free, and that the stories of our fallen and departed heroes should not be lost through the years,” said Dan Adamcheck, Chevrolet regional sales and marketing manager. “Laying those wreaths and paying tribute is a small way to show how grateful we are.”
Chevy is adding some cool features to the Silverado HD, including a new Digital Steering Assist feature. Giving drivers more control than ever, this advanced feature is designed to integrate seamlessly to give you an enjoyable, and safe, ride.
New to the Chevy Silverado HD is Digital Steering Assist.

Wouldn’t this 2015 Chevy Colorado look nice if it were lifted?
The midsize Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon made a statement when they arrived in dealerships this year. Refined, capable, and modern, the pickups offered something others don’t – a small footprint and better fuel economy. Now, owners have a new option for lifting their 2015 Canyon or Colorado thanks to the experts at SuperLift.
SuperLift has released its new Level-It 2-Inch system, which will be available to lift the 2WD and 4WD 2015 Canyon and Colorado. According to GM Authority, the Level-It system uses laser-cut upper strut spacers and a lower pre-strut ring to increase the pickup’s stability and prevent a body roll. The kit is easy to install thanks to the fact that all necessary hardware is included, along with its 100 percent bolt-on procedure. Just be aware, you’ll need a coil spring compressor to properly install it.
The kit both makes the truck more stable, and gives it a more aggressive look and taller stance. If you decide to sell your truck, it’s easy to remove the kit.
Other kits are also available, so do your research to find the right fit for your needs. Here at DeLillo Chevrolet, we like the bold look of the lifted Colorado and Canyon. What other modifications have you made to your Colorado or Canyon? Tell us in the comments!
