    The UAW GM strike is affecting the automaker's operations outside of the US, despite the two sides reaching a tentative agreement last week. The latest is a stoppage of production of the 2020 Chevrolet Blazer. That new model is built in Mexico, but that doesn't mean that all of the components...

    At the launch of the 2020 Sierra HD and 1500 Duramax, we got the chance to take the slow road in the new AT4 versions of both trucks. GMC had set up three different courses because the different types of off-road driving are extremely varied. The first loop was the most fun, but probably not...

    Winkingly called the Cowboy Corvette by its creator, Gale Banks, the 1993 Chevrolet Silverado Banks SS 502 is what happens when a hot rodding legend is released from a giant corporation's strictures. Powered by a marine engine, Banks says that this is the truck he really wanted to make when he...

    Michelin and GM announced today at the Movin'On Summit for sustainable tech, that they plan to test a Bolt at the Milford proving grounds with a so-called Unique Puncture-proof Tire System (Uptis). "General Motors is excited about the possibilities that Uptis presents, and we are thrilled to...

    The jury's out on whether General Motors will foist an SS version of its new-for-2019 Chevrolet Blazer on Americans, but some consumers stand to get an XL. An extended version of the midsize crossover is in development, adding enough mass to the vehicle's rear for the automaker to squeeze in an...

    Normally, dyno videos get posted because the numbers at the end of them are surprisingly large or the car on the rig is surprisingly humble. But this isn't that. This is just about being sad. The video was posted by Hennessey, so you could be forgiven for assuming the car will produce 1,000 hp...

    With an already quite sizeable trunk, it wouldn't take much to add a third row to the new Blazer. And that's reportedly exactly what Chevy has planned. GM Authority, citing unnamed sources, reports that Chevrolet is looking to turn its FNR-CarryAll concept into a three-row Blazer as soon as...

    As we told you earlier, midsize pickups are enjoying a healthy upswing in sales this year - a trend that's sure to continue in 2019 after the release of the Ford Ranger. It's generally agreed that this segment is not an afterthought, and might be something worth investing in for automakers...

    While Chevy is busy preparing a new HD pickup for 2020, the 2019 model soldiers on with few modifications. The most visually arresting of the changes they have made? The Tribute Edition, shown here. Available on four-wheel-drive crew cab models of the 2500HD with a standard box and LTZ trim...

    When Chevrolet rolled into last month's SEMA show with a vivid, one-off Camaro SS show car, our attention was drawn to its new "concept" face. It seemed like the bowtie brand had read Matthew Guy's mind, swathing the grille's horizontal crossbar in body color and moving the Chevy emblem to its...

    Robert Downey Jr gives better gifts than you do. The Marvel star is apparently fond enough of his co-star, Chris Evans (Captain America, Scott Pilgrim Vs the World), to not just buy him a '67 Camaro, but to send it to Speedkore to have it resto-modded. The Milwaukee-based company worked closely...

    Brand new for 2019, the totally redesigned Chevrolet Silverado is all about more, except when it isn't. The latest Motown full-size truck to get a ground-up rework, following the comprehensively retooled Ram 1500, which debuted a few months ago and Ford's aluminum-bodied F-150, which has been...

    It's the '70s all over again. An oil crisis looms, the big three are caught up in a horsepower war, and small Japanese vehicles are gaining market share. By 2023, Bloomberg reports that US automakers' share of the crossover market will fall to 35%. In 2005, at Detroit's crossover peak, its...

    A General Motors exec has just said that the Tripower name that was synonymous with Pontiac performance in 1966 is coming back for the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks. So let's take a look at what Tripower was, and how it worked. The new system was revealed by GM exec Mike...

    Depending on trim, there's a stable of new Camaro faces (fascias, to be exact) arriving for 2019, but order guides show that would-be customers stand to save money, too. Especially if they can live without a V6. According to guides seen by CarsDirect, getting behind the wheel of a base 2019...

    Remember the Enspire? It's looking increasingly likely that GM will use a version of the Bolt's chassis to form the basis of that, and another CUV in the near future. A slide from a presentation uncovered by GM Authority plainly shows that in November 2017 GM was planning for "New CUV entries...

    Chevrolet is obsessed with the letter Z. Many of its best performance models start with the 26th letter of our alphabet. Case in point: the Corvette ZR1 and the Camaro ZL1… 1LE. Both are capable of ripping holes in the space-time continuum with their big V8s and comparably big wheels, but...

    As promised by General Motors CEO Mary Barra in March, GM plans to crank out additional Chevrolet Bolts at its Orion Assembly Plant in Michigan later this year. The need for extra output isn't because of rising sales in the United States, however. In GM's second-quarter 2018 sales report, the...

    In what can only be described as the best headline since Ferrari sets lap record at Fiorano, the Corvette has taken to home turf and set a lap record at the National Corvette Museum Motorsport Park. Setting a time of 2:05.29 on the 3.15 mile Grand Full Course, the longest format available at...
