Recent sales figures from the automotive industry depict a boost in vehicle sales equipped with turbocharged engines. According to a report from Honeywell, sales of new turbo-charged vehicles are estimated to reach 3.2 million in the U.S. this year. That number is up from just 2.2 million in 2011. And many of those supercharged cars are Chevies.
Why such the sudden rise in popularity? There are the obvious reasons: vehicles with turbocharged engines are typically much faster, and everyone likes way “turbocharged” roles off the tongue when bragging to friends, but the experts have another explanation. Turbocharged engines are being used to increase fuel economy.
Chevrolet offers a supercharged Camaro and supercharged Corvette, each featuring V8 engines with extra power and performance.
