2016 Chevrolet Volt LT Trim - Kinetic Blue Metallic Paint

2016 Chevrolet Volt LT Trim – Kinetic Blue Metallic Paint

On Monday, General Motors took the cover off the all new 2016 Chevrolet Volt.  And while you can check out the official pictures of the 50 mile extended range car here, or our live from the NAIAS floor here, these illustrations here show the colors and trim levels (both inside and out) the 2016 Volt can be optioned in.

The 2016 Chevy plug-in will come in two trim levels; the base LT, and the premium LTZ.

It is still well ahead of the fall debut of the car, so no pricing on either level is yet available, but the LTZ package adds the following:

  • Front and rear park assist
  • 17″ aluminum wheel w/painted pockets
  • Advanced parking assist
  • Ambient lighting
  • Heated front and rear seating
  • Heated steering wheel
  • Heated outside rearview mirrors
  • Wireless device charging

It also appears that GM’s new front “shutter system” (that closes the grille in typical highway driving when less airflow is required for cooling to help the aerodynamic drag and efficiency of the car) could be offered as an option on the LTZ trim given the different grilles shown between the two models.  The other reason for a separate set-up could also be for the advanced parking assist sensors.

As for the color options for the exterior of the car, both trim levels have the same choices.  Here is a list of the colors (as well as their fancy automaker names):

  • Black (Mosaic Black Metallic)
  • Gray (Silver Ice Metallic)
  • White (Summit White)
  • Red (Siren Red Tintcoat)
  • White-ish (Iridescent Pearl Tricoat)
  • Royal Blue (Kinetic Blue Metallic)

The 2016 Chevrolet Volt also has the following interior options:

  • LT – Dark Ash Cloth
  • LT – Jet Black Cloth
  • LT – Dark Ash Leather
  • LT/LTZ – Jet Black Leather
  • LTZ only– Jet Black/Brandy Leather

Lookin’ good in silver and red.

The pic of that silver one at that angle made me drool.
The more pictures I see, the more I’m tempted to upgrade.

Same here, except I like the red.

Question … are there any rules that limit how many times one person can utilize the EV tax credit? Or the Illinois EV rebate? I’m thinking I could sell my 2013 for about what it cost me. Thanks.

“It also appears that GM’s new front “shutter system” (that closes the grille in typical highway driving when less airflow is required for cooling to help the aerodynamic drag and efficiency of the car) will be offered as an option only on the LTZ trim.”

I feel that this should be standard but that’s just me.

+1. That and heated seats/steering wheel.

Neromanceres

Agreed, I love the heated cloth seats in my 2013. And I would love a heated steering wheel.

If i would build a 2016 Volt for myself it would be the Blue with Dark-Ash cloth interior. Heated front/rear seats with heating steering wheel.

Plus I do agree active grill should be standard.

Calitran Dresdener

Me too. I’d consider it in red or silver, but the blue, complemented by the red tail lights, that two tone interior; that the one.

After posting I see I’m not in full agreement. The Blue/Brandy LTZ is my choice.

Anthony

Silver + Jet Black interior. Not that I’m going to be buying one anytime soon.

Josh

I am really bummed there is no longer a Cyber Grey. I will probably be looking at Silver Ice / Dark Ash leather.

Please tell me I can pay extra to not get the hideous blue shifter.

Spider-Dan

On the subject of the blue shifter: where’s the starter/power button on this car?

MTN Ranger

Roughly where the old one was. Now there are no surrounding buttons to mistakenly press.

ziv

Yeah, they pulled the mode button all the way back aft of the ‘shifter’. Probably a wise move. I sat in it and played around with the controls at the DC autoshow and I like it, I really don’t like much about my 2013 when it comes to the console, the new one looks better.

Behind the steering wheel on the right…where you would put the key on a regular car.

The top four photos remind me of kid’s magazines where you have to spot the difference in two drawings. I was sure for a minute you had just posted the same pictures twice.

HA! Made me laugh!

If you look closely, Waldo is sitting in the middle seat in the rear…. =)

MrEnergyCzar
Guest

Too bad you can’t get the dark ash leather with the LTZ features…. or maybe you can add them separately like just add the heated seats and not the parking assist etc….

Josh
Guest

I didn’t notice that. I guess I will be looking at the black leather then.

GeorgeS
Guest

That seems illogical. One would think you could get the dark ash leather in the LTZ package.

Also it makes no sense that the grill shutter system only come in LTZ. That would mean a different MPGe rating for LTZ and no way that is happening.

Nix
Guest

I think the idea is that the Brandy replaces the Dark Ash as the top of the line non-black leather option.

Lou Grinzo

I can’t decide whether I think the interior or the exterior is a bigger improvement over v1.0. They’re both big steps up, though.

Depending on the price (as always) and production limits (ditto), GM could have a humongous hit on their hands with this car.

Speaking as someone who shares an atmosphere with over 7 billion other people, many of whom drive motor vehicles, I say: The more plug-in cars, the better.

Limiting certain interior colors to a particular trim level is one of the stupidest things I’ve ever heard. WTF.

Also, I think Cyber Grey is the best Gen 1 color, so it’s a pity to not see it offered for Gen 2.

Not sure if you guys noticed that Cyber gray turned to Ash Gray in 2014-15. The Ash gray is also available on Corvette and Camaro and I saw one on the highway and it knocked me out. It’s just darker than Cyber gray and closer to black – but changes more from sun to overcast to near black at night. The flakes in the paint are different.

I’d go blue all the way – it would be a toss-up if Ash Gray were available.

Spider-Dan
Guest
Spider-Dan

I’m also upset at no Cyber Grey. I’m tired of white and I don’t like black, so my choices are pretty limited.

I am also super bummed about no Dark Ash Leather on LTZ.

I’m happy with the trim levels. Makes it easier to shop and compare volts.

Justin W.

I’m bummed about cyber grey as well. If my girlfriend gets one it will have to be black because she was set on cyber grey. Yeah me and keeping up black paint. :/

Was neat to see my home time of Seattle in Volt marketing. The building behind is the Ballard branch library next to the “Greenfire” campus (a multiuse office/condo/restaurant complex).

the gen1 Volt came with one trim level. this time around, the Volt is being marketed more conventionally with multiple trim levels. get ready to start complaining because the LTZ trim is going to cost a few thousand dollars more than the LT trim. be aware that any pricing that you have been reading is for the LT trim.

Spider-Dan
Guest
Spider-Dan

The Gen1 Volt may have had one trim level, but it had $5k in options, so it’s a wash.

don’t assume that the LTZ will be fully loaded, i expect that both the LT and LTZ will have option packages. that is how GM markets cars in general.

Where do “LT” and “LTZ” come from anyway? What do they stand for, anything?

Summit White

black out the half ass chrome trim

That’s what I’m thinking. (except for the roof wrap) Storm trooper look.

Not an eco-penalty vehicle. I dig the two tone interior options. Sexeh.

Maybe someday, they’ll go full BEV and drop that limited capacity T-Bar battery packaging that cuts up into the cabin.

Zim
Guest

I think it’s important to realize that the Model S is a substantially larger vehicle so it’s able to make use of a flat battery design underneath the cabin. As a result the Model S is taller and you ride higher up than in the much smaller Volt. For a small car, the Volt has used a good design. At least it doesn’t eat into trunk space like you are seeing with the Honda Accord PHEV for example.

Calitran Dresdener

And this architecture is noted for contributing to the stiffness and strength of the unibody structure and as armor for the batteries. Yes, Tesla has armored it’s flat pack as well, but I expect GM, who first proposed the skateboard frame, choose the T for good reason. It may still end up being replaced in Gen III but it’s a proven design so it’s what we get for now.

I can’t speak to any potential performance improvements, but from a design perspective, the new model’s exterior looks much better but the exterior continues to be overly busy and very claustrophobic. It won’t be a car for me, but I applaud GM for their continued investment in this car and (with the addition of the Bolt) in EV’s in general.

I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this new bodystyle. But the more I look at it, the more I like it. I especially like the blue and red colors offered. I also love the two-tone ash interior.

Unfortunately, I probably won’t be able to afford one. I’ve made my mind up I’d prefer not to lease any more. I want to find a used EV and buy it and get it paid for.

Spider-Dan
Guest
Spider-Dan

I’m reasonably certain that a used Gen1 Volt will be quite affordable; under $20k, for sure.

Lou
Guest

There are plenty of used Gen 1 Volt’s out there now, well under $20K. I bought oen a few months ago for $17K, base model but clean with very low miles.

I wonder if you bought my used one off of lease. Is it by chance silver? I turned in my 2012 leased Volt with like 15k miles on it. They wanted $27k buy out on it and I instead bought a used 2013 fully loaded one for $25k.

Yes, prices will be going down.

What’s a Toyota

Lou Grinzo

Toyota is a niche car maker specializing on (get this) hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. (No, really.) They used to be a major player, but just kind of drifted off, like a cloud of invisible gas carried away by a spring breeze.

I’ve long contended that Toyota would only jump in on EV’s/PHEV’s in a big way once their traditional Hybrid sales started to slip. But that is now, and they are still just sitting on their PHEV Prius with way too limited EV range doing nothing. And letting their old-body RAV4 die without replacement. They are becoming completely irrelevant.

? Americans have no taste in car design.
Prefer my Volt Classic.

Volt 2, Paint the lower grill black it’s BS Bling.
Rear taillights ? interior needs more work what is with the lower chrome strip.
More rear head room needed.

Trust Volt III they will get it back on the Volt look track.

For inspiration go look at the new GM BOLT EV only city car – at least that is bold and good looking city car.

Volt 2 – very disappointed. As i expected so much more – but GM failed on this occasion, they produced a me too look alike car.

Maybe Americans like their cars to look like the better Japanese brands LOL!

oh that’s why the Bolt and Buick show cars look Good – Designed in Australia by car enthusiasts working at GM Melbourne AUSTRALIA design studios ….. Hey GM give them the Volt III they will do better than what your local crew has done!

“The all-electric Chevrolet Bolt EV – a
collaboration between GM’s design and
engineering centres in South Korea,
Detroit and Melbourne – is the second
all-new concept car with Holden input
to be revealed at this week’s Detroit
motor show.
The Buick Avenir large rear-drive
sedan – shown at a GM event on
the eve of the show – had even more
Holden input, being designed and built
by GM Australia Design at Holden’s
Melbourne headquarters.
Just hours later, the Aussie crew was
front and centre again with GM’s first
battery-powered car, the Bolt, which is
expected to go into production in 2017.
The Bolt was fabricated in the Port
Melbourne workshops – one of only
two such facilities in the GM universe
capable of turning a design into reality.”

Note: There appears to be an additional exterior colour available that is only shown on the mobile Chevrolet site. “Heather Gray Metallic” Don’t know if that is an error or not, but still noteworthy.

Put the voltec technology into a VW golf body and it’ll sell like hotcakes. I want a practical 4-person hatch, not low headroom and a useless hatch.

Exterior colors too limited. So tired of whites, blacks, greys, and silvers. Where are the bright reds? How about any greens? Yellow anyone?
