October 30th, 2014 by

When you shop used car lots in Cincinnati, you have your pick of quality previously owned vehicles. In fact, you have an even better selection than if you shopped at new car dealerships because you can buy from any model from just about any year.

At McCluskey Chevrolet, we carry a wide selection of some of your favorite Chevy models, as well as models from other popular manufacturers. One of our favorite models has been the 2011 Chevy Volt. Here’s what you need to know about this popular model:

Engine

The 2011 Chevy Volt has the ability to operate as an exclusively electric vehicle or as a hybrid. You can start by driving on electric power and switch to gas or a combination when you are not able to recharge as soon as you would like. You can drive about 35 miles on electric power alone, then a range extender powered by gasoline can create enough energy to go another 344 miles.

It has a front-wheel drive powertrain and a 1-Speed Direct Drive transmission. While you won’t get a lot of power out of the vehicle, you won’t really need it either. You’ll also save a ton in gas and enjoy smooth handling.

Features

Features abound in the 2011 Chevy Volt. The hatchback includes features like a delayed start, timed departure (so it can be charged and ready to go), touch sensitive interior controls, and an energy efficient sound system.

It also has an OnStar MyLink app that allows you to remotely check things like battery level, tire pressure or range. You can also use it to remotely start the car or your air conditioner, getting your car ready on a hot day.

Price

The 2011 Chevy Volt originally sold for about $41,000 but you can pick up a used model for about $17,600. Of oourse, exact prices will depend on the condition of the car, what additional features it includes and where you are buying it.
