Spied: 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1?

Aug 03, 2015 - 3:18 PM - by FenwickHockey65


Next-gen Chevy Camaro ZL1 teases big changes under its camo
Chris Buce, Autoblog
August 3, 2015

With work complete on the lighter, stiffer 2016 Camaro, it's time for Chevrolet's engineers to really start having fun by developing the next, ZL1 version. Here it is for the first time. Unfortunately, the muscle car is still wearing quite a bit of camouflage, but the concealment isn't enough to hide some of the meaner model's more obvious performance tweaks.

The New 2015 Audi Q5

Does the Corvette Z06 Have an Engine Failure Problem?

Does the Corvette Z06 Have an Engine Failure Problem?
GM Inside News




Imagine that the Corvette of your dreams has finally arrived – one that makes no excuses for its performance, looks and, yes, interior quality.

And then it dies on the way back from the dealership.

There have been several reports of engine failure with the 2015 Corvette Z06’s LT4. With the nature of the Internet (fueled by the worst of human nature), plenty of folks are in a panic, chastising Chevrolet for developing a car that’s not quite world-class after all. Or maybe it’s just good ol’ Government Motors, continuing to push crap upon the public. And then there are the GM apologists . . .

But there’s also common sense – hey, haven’t seen ya in... [Read More]

2016 Chevy Colorado Diesel Tow Ratings, Power Output Revealed
Chevy has revealed power output and tow ratings for its new diesel-powered midsize pickup.
AutoGuide.com
By Stephen Elmer

Perhaps smokey Volkswagen Rabbits and unreliable Olds Delta 88s left a bad diesel taste in American consumers' mouths but, when it comes to trucks, it's a completely different story. When Chevrolet introduced the Colorado for the 2015 model year, a diesel was promised.

And now it's one step closer to reality.

Spied: 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 3500, GMC Sierra 3500

With the recent debut of both refreshed half-ton 2016 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra (see grille photos of both below), it's no wonder our spy shooters are beginning to seeing activity in the next-gen heavy-duty segment. We haven't heard anything about GM's Duramax making an attempt to leapfrog the Ram Cummins' maximum torque rating of 900 pounds-feet, but we're guessing it won't be long before someone tries for the magic 1,000.

Here's the latest from the road:

2017 Chevrolet Bolt Spied - Can You Dig That?

Jul 24, 2015 - 1:43 PM - by Diego


Looking like a bad trip, this heavily disguised Chevrolet Bolt was caught being put through its paces by an enterprising photographer. After debuting at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the Bolt has had some drama regarding trademarking its name, but the dust has settled and Bolt is set to be a nice companion to the Volt.

SEMA's eNews reports that the Gamma-based Bolt, which should serve as the replacement for the Spark EV, will likely be built at the Orion Township, Michigan, plant that is home to the brother-from-another-mother Sonic.

The Future of Chevrolet: Changes, Updates, and Additions

The Future of Chevrolet: Changes, Updates, and Additions
What is Chevrolet planning over the next several years?

As the heartbeat of General Motors, Chevrolet holds a special position in the American market (as well as in America’s heart). Once upon a time, Chevrolet’s big cars sold over a million units in one model year, but today you’ll never find that kind of performance.

Chevrolet’s portfolio is competitive, with several exciting new models hitting showrooms within a year that should energize the Bow Tie brand. Stylists also appear to be settling into a theme that is more self-assured. Here’s what is (and what could be) coming:



Spark
Chevrolet’s South Korean-derived city car has been in production since 2009, but only in the U.S. since the summer of 2012; there also is a... [Read More]

It's been difficult thus far to judge what the new generation Cruze will look like in the real world from the released media images.

Here is a video shot in India of an American specification pre-production Cruze Premier (replaces LTZ) model. Take a look and advise your thoughts.
