We've talked quite a lot about the mid-engine C8 Corvette, even going so far as to name it our 2020 Car of the Year. We have lots of stories you can read about how it drives around town, on back roads, and on racetracks. The whole point of having a long-term 2021 Chevrolet Corvette Z51 test vehicle, though, is to tell you what it's like living with the car day in and day out. After 10 months of "ownership," we've put together a list of the top six little details about the Corvette we think are great, the six that drive us crazy, and the six that are worth mentioning but aren't good or bad enough to make the other…
Name aside, the Silverado EV interior shares almost nothing with the Silverado's. In many ways, the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV can be considered a fresh look at what it could mean to be a truck going forward. Developed as an EV from the ground up and not constrained by a traditional pickup truck design that separates the cab from the bed, Chevy envisioned new ways to package the people and the utility in the all-new Silverado EV. This new pickup sits somewhere between the redesigned 2022 Chevrolet Silverado and the GMC Hummer EV in terms of looks and function but also delivers its own take on a highly functional and modular experience wrapped in high style. You can read all…
The every-person’s crossover EV has its strengths, but could still use refinement. When Chevrolet first introduced the Bolt EV, it sent shockwaves through the automotive industry as the first properly affordable mainstream electric car. More than half a decade later, Chevy has taken its award-winning hatchback and spun off a second model, the stretched Bolt EUV crossover. We put the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV to the test to see if it could recapture the original's magic. Disappointing Dynamics At a glance the Bolt EUV doesn't look all that different from its smaller sibling, though it drives like an entirely different vehicle. It wears a similar grille and retains the Bolt EV's egglike styling. However, the 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV is…
The verdict: The 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 full-size pickup truck is refined, capable and offers an impressive turbo-diesel engine option, but its primary competitors offer more luxury and innovation. Versus the competition: Certain trim levels of the Ram 1500 are more luxurious than the Silverado 1500, and the redesigned 2021 Ford F-150 has more powertrain choices, including a hybrid that can also run high-draw power tools, but the Silverado nails the fundamentals with an unruffled driving experience and functional interior. The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 was last redesigned for the 2019 model year, and the 2021 model offers a choice of three cabs, three bed lengths, five engines and eight trim levels. Now available is a new Multi-Flex Tailgate similar to…
2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV The new 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV is affordable little hatchback that doesn't stick out like the i3 and today, it packs plenty of all-electric range at 259 miles -- a nice increase over its initial 236-mile range. With a starting price of just $36,620, the Bolt has positioned itself as the perfect alternative to the impossible-to-spec $35,000 Model 3 from Tesla. The 2020 Chevy Bolt is an all-electric hatchback with a long driving range, spacious cabin, and affordable price tag. Capable of traveling up to 259 miles on a single charge and starting at less than $40,000, the Bolt attempts to make EVs more accessible to everyone. Its electric motor provides almost-instant acceleration. So this model…

How does America’s second-best-selling pickup satisfy in Rally Sport Truck guise? Chevrolet sold 594,094 Silverado pickup trucks in America last year. Again, that's last year—you know, the bad one with the global pandemic. Also, General Motors will hate me for mentioning this, but since the two vehicles are virtually identical, we really ought to toss in the 253,016 Sierras GMC managed to move in 2020. Grand total: 847,110 trucks. I mention these massive sales figures because I always get a bit nervous when reviewing a product that sells in such bulk. Porsche sold 8,839 examples of the 911 last year. That's a number I can wrap my head around, and maybe say something that will affect the numbers. One man's…
The four-cylinder 1LE delivers amazing handling and no messy tire smoke. It seems that nearly every review of the Chevrolet Camaro compares it to the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger, and with good reason—these three nameplates are historic foes going back 50 years. Well, Constant Reader, that won't happen today, because the subject of this test is the four-cylinder 2021 Chevrolet Camaro Turbo 1LE, an endangered species that combines the Camaro's smallest engine with the SS model's suspension. Truth be told, a read of the spec sheet had us thinking that this Camaro's natural enemies might be sport compacts like the Hyundai Veloster N and Volkswagen Golf R. Its 275-hp 2.0-liter turbo I-4, six-speed manual, and emphasis on handling over…
Aren't nearly as popular as they used to be the large sedans. That Chevrolet would discontinue the Impala after the 2019 model year, we even thought. Somehow the Impala is soldiering on for at least one more year, yet. There's life yet in Chevy's big four-door, and even though the number of trim levels and options diminishes for 2022. Offering a roomy interior, a spacious trunk, smooth acceleration and a ride quality that's plush without being overly soft and floaty, this generation of Impala - introduced in 2014 - has always been a solid choice in the segment. The Impala does exactly what you expect from a large, comfort-oriented sedan, in short. Which gives it a tendency to wander in…
In Chevrolet exist rumors regarding the next-gen 2024 Silverado HD pickup. In the middle of 2023 year the heavy-duty hauler will go on sale. An eye-catching, potentially even polarizing look, has the 2024 Silverado HD. That the roof is the only part shared with the less tough Silverado 1500. The 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD should have massive mesh grille now dominates the front end, and there's no guessing what company makes this machine because Chevrolet appears in the holes in the bar that spans the center of the grille, as well. The chiseled hood features a subtle, chrome-trimmed scoop. A step integrates into the rear bumper for easier access to the bed, at the back. The basic goal for…
