So, it is good to learn more about this innovative new model year in advance of its release, which we can do thanks to GM order guides procured by

First, the biggest change for 2017 is the selling range, as GM will roll out the new model in the Spring. In addition, the 2017 Volt will receive optional adaptive cruise control, will have a new exterior color (Citron Green Metallic), and will conform to Federal Tier 3 emissions rules (part of a government effort to improve public health that will take effect in 2017). Other than that, the Volt remains more or less the same, since the only other change is a $50 drop in MSRP to offset a $50 increase in destination fees.
