2017 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe

Mar 24th
In the interest of full disclosure, we’ll begin our official first-drive review of the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro V-6 1LE by admitting that this is not actually our first drive of the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro V-6 1LE. That happened during the 2016 Lightning Lap competition, where the six-cylinder Camaro 1LE and the V-8–powered Camaro SS 1LE not only showed up, but…
2016 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe

Mar 23rd
There hasn’t been a four-cylinder in a Chevrolet Camaro since the third-generation car’s “Iron Duke” 2.5-liter in the 1980s. That lump made only about 90 horsepower, so traditionalist Detroit-muscle fans have spent the intervening decades pretending it never happened. But times have changed—witness Ford fitting its 2.3-liter EcoBoost four under the hood of the latest Mustang—and we’ve just had our…
2017 Chevrolet Cruze Sedan

A groundswell of conjecture says that diesels are dead. Some manufacturers believe that Volkswagen has so poisoned the well that it has shifted future diesel development off cars to focus on SUVs and pickup trucks. Chevrolet is taking the opposite approach, figuring that the cancellation of VW’s TDI fleet leaves the desires of diesel enthusiasts unfulfilled, providing an opportunity for…

The Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport might as well be twirling a butterfly knife at the intersection of Performance Avenue and Value Lane with a pack of unfiltered smokes rolled up in the sleeve of a plain white tee. It’s an intimidating thug from the Bowtie Gang that both outperforms and undercuts the competition. It’s a bully that goads others into…
2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Coupe

It’s a curious truth of automotive engineering that, in general, the lower the volume target for a new vehicle, the more effort is invested in perfecting it. Engineers seem to sweat the nuances of a Ferrari far more than they do those of a Fiat. The same goes for performance models of mass-produced vehicles. With the tedious stuff already taken…
2016 Chevrolet Cruze

Mar 15th
A middle-school wood-shop teacher once told this author to hand-sand a wooden DVD-rack project until its surface was “smoother than a baby’s bottom.” The teacher’s name is long forgotten, but that quote stuck—the image of the business end of an infant ensured as much—and it applies as aptly to the 2016 Chevrolet Cruze as sandpaper does to wood.The Cruze is…
2017 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Coupe

The 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport is probably not what you think it is.It’s certainly not a ferocious factory racing machine, as the first blistered and vented Grand Sport was in 1963. And it’s not the wrapper in which a new version of the Chevy small-block V-8 is presented. That was true of the 1996 Grand Sport, the vehicle first…
2016 Chevrolet Colorado

Mar 12th
With the recent sales momentum of the revised To­yota Tacoma and the new Chevy Colorado/GMC Canyon twins, GM’s introduction of diesel power to the mid-size-pickup segment seems like a clever play. But in a market built around established full-size trucks, the advantages of that combination are less than clear.Built in Thailand and available on 2016 Chevrolet and GMC models, GM’s…
2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Mar 10th
The pickup truck is an all-American invention with roots in the old buckboard wagons of the Wild West—big work ethic, not much concern with comfort. That cowboy-boots image lingers, but rigs like this Chevrolet Silverado make clear that the utilitarian pickup of yesteryear has little in common with its contemporary descendants. Even the basic Silverado WT (for Work Truck) has…
2018 Chevrolet Equinox

Mar 8th
Sales of compact crossovers motored past those of family sedans in 2015 to become America’s favorite form of transport. More than a dozen contenders swarm like bees to clover, striving to offer the best combination of features, functionality, performance, mileage, and value. What these high-riding hatchback half-breeds sacrifice in style, agility, and driving delight, they make up for in dog-hauling…
2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

Mar 5th
Heavy-duty pickups will always be inherently compromised by their ability to move small mountains. But this is 2017 and, like their light-duty brethren, these mega work trucks have evolved from covered-wagon roots to embody impressive refinement—and surprising straight-line acceleration when not weighed down by a load. Our first road test of Chevrolet’s updated 2017 Silverado 2500HD reveals that General Motors…
2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible

Mar 5th
Have you ever wanted to pilot your very own F/A-18 Super Hornet fighter aircraft? The multirole jet boasts insane speed, precision handling, and a price tag that only professional baseball pitchers could afford. For a starting price of $69,435, Chevrolet has a much more affordable alternative: the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 convertible, an open-air rocket ship capable of serious speed…
