2016 Chevrolet Camaro and Colorado Take Coveted Motor Trend Car & Truck of the Year Award

The most coveted honour in the Automotive Industry – Motor Trend’s Car and Truck of the Year Award. No Brand award is as extensive in their evaluations and track tests as Motor Trend. This year, Chevrolet took top honours with the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro named ‘Car of the Year’ and the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado named ‘Truck of the Year’, for the 2nd consecutive year we might add.

The 2016 Camaro is lighter in weight, which contributes to “world class sports performance and dynamics.” There are six all-new powertrain combinations offered on the new Camaro, including a standard 2.0L Turbo and an available all-new 3.6L V-6 in LT models, as well as a 455-hp LT1 6.2L V-8 in the SS, making it is the most powerful Camaro ever. Motor Trend calls the 2016 Camaro “the best Pony Car the world has ever seen!”2016 Chevrolet Camaro






Procuring ‘Truck of the Year’ for the 2nd year in a row, the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado is an outstanding Truck. The all-new 2.8L Duramax turbo-diesel engine gives the Colorado Diesel the best fuel efficiency of any pick-up truck in Canada. Its fuel consumption rating is 7.7L/100Km on highway for two-wheel drive models and it has the highest trailering capability in mid-size truck segment, up to 7,700 pounds. 2016 Colorado

2016 Chevrolet Camaro and 2016 Honda Accord make Car and Driver’s 10 Best Cars List

Car and Driver has released their exciting list of 10 Best Cars for 2016 and it’s an impressive lineup.  Every year, Car and Driver enters a weeklong evaluation, looking for these new and improved vehicle virtues: value and engagement, performance and poise, sights and sounds, soul and character.

“It’s our job to unearth gems. Cars on the 10 Best list should have your neighbors asking questions, sometimes relating to your sanity. Issues of personal taste, social conformity, and other base impulses rarely factor in.”, says Eddie Alterman, editor at Car and Driver.

For us at Queenston Chevrolet Buick GMC and Image Honda, it’s exciting to see two of our models appear on this prestigious list.
